First time at Gaby's for the three of us and could not have been more pleased. Food was outstanding and the service was terrific. Crowded and noisy but it was Friday night after a beautiful day. All three thought their meal was more than we dared hope for in a small upstate town. Delightful. I'll be back!

Anytime we go to the Ellenville area, Gaby's is a must! We have been going there for the last 3-4 years. The food and the staff are fantastic! There is a young man there that is a trained classical pianist that always gives us a show. Outstanding young man.

Very clean, very pleasant. Authentic Mexican menu, with much more variety than the usual mex place. Owners and staff very attentive. The food varies a bit -- some dishes, like the mussels were phenomenal, camarones al ajillo spectacular. My son loved the steak, my peurco was a little bland.

What a pleasant surprise to find this authentic, high quality Mexican restaurant in Ellenville. The restaurant greets the street with a small, colorful outdoor patio. The interior is freshly remodeled with comfortable tables surrounding a large bar. From the guacamole appetizer with fresh chopped peppers, onions, cilantro and tomatoes piled high above Mexican stone mortars, you know you are in... More

We ate the Gaby’s Café location in Rhinebeck. I ordered my favorite dish – chicken tamales. They came mildly spiced, with black beans, rice and a light marina sauce over top. We also ordered the guacamole. Staff prepared it right in front of our table. They chopped onion, squeezed lemon, diced tomatoes and mixed it all with expert style. It... More

Of all the Mexican restaurants I've been in, this is the best! They literally prepare the guacamole right before your very eyes table side!!! The portions are huge (as is customary with Mexican cuisine) and of a good quality. This eatery is a local gem as the village itself is, quite honestly, a ghetto

The guacamole is highly rated at this place so I knew it was something I wanted to try. It costs $11 and lacks flavor, it was disappointing. For my entree, I had the vegetable burrito. This too lacked seasoning and taste. The service was excellent and the manager took my partners meal off of our bill because she didn't like... More
