I was recommended to this place by a local and was not disappointed. Nice and relaxing decor, great service and the food is delicious. Ordering the guacamole is a must! Piled high, with a twist and tasty all the way. For entree I had the pernil which was very tender along with savory rice and beans. My daughter had the... More

Had lunch, January. During the week so not crowded. The service was excellent, food was superb, and it is a most lovely place, with a great atmosphere/ambiance. It is very clean, neatly decorated. I know it is a well liked restaurant, in the Spring, Summer, they have tables outside and a Mexican Band plays music, and there is always a... More

Gabby's is a stalwart in the Hudson Valley Area. The restaurant itself has moved across the street from where it once was and it is just beautiful inside. Warm atmosphere, good solid food, excellent staff! All good!!!

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!
