We enjoyed a get-together with friends. The new restaurant is very attractive and the meal was excellent. We had a terrific server who made sure all our needs were met.

We went there today solely because it was Mexican fare and that it looked beautiful. That is where it ends. We were asked four times by different wait staff what our drink order was going to be. We didn't want an alcoholic beverage and told each one that water was fine. We placed our order and was brought chips and... More

The food was the most discussing Mexican food I've had in a long time. I got a pulled pork chimichanga diner with a side of garlic string beans and fried plantains. The pulled pork tasted rotten with chunks of rubbery fat and no sauce or seasoning on it. The only thing that was edible in my dinner was the bland... More

Gaby's is adequate, nothing exceptional, if you are in the mood for Mexican. The restaurants serving such fare in the immediate area are few and far between. I will say that the Gaby's Cafe on the other side of Canal Street -prior to their expanding to the new location at 143 Canal was better. I think perhaps the relocation, which... More

We ate here twice during our trip to Ellenville, NY. The staff is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Both times I ordered the Fajita a la Gaby (grilled steak, shrimp and chicken) and both times I ate all of it!

Wonderful lunch at Gabby's. Guacamole delicious - my pollo tacos fresh and warm. The other guests enjoyed a burrito and warm shrimp. Always a pleasure - service friendly and excellent.

We (my wife and sister) arrived at Gabby's before 7 PM. The restaurant was modestly busy. There was no one at the hostess desk. We stood there a few minutes. A non English speaking gentleman noticed us from the kitchen area and led us to a table. We ordered a half pitcher of margarita and for the entrees: steak burrito,... More

Went here with my family last month and was very impressed. Most Mexican restaurants in the area serve dull, generic Mexican food, you know what I mean - combos of enchiladas, tacos, burritos, chimichangas - all covered with a flavorless sauce and tons of cheese that makes the plate look more like a soup. I spent years living in San... More

I have been to very many Mexican Restaurant across America and in Mexico and once I went to Gaby's, I believe I have been to one of the BEST. From the moment you walk in, you feel welcomed. I tend to have seafood done in a Mexican way.Their Stuffed Clams are one of my favorites appetizers, and although they have... More

I have been to Gaby's three times within the past 12 months and have not been disappointed. The service was fabulous, we were seated right away and the restaurant was very crowded. Our meals came out quickly and were prepared exactly how we imagined they would be. The portions were plentiful And tasty.

Thank Ridgewalkersss
