Best Spanish food in Long Island

Amazing Colombian food. Great service. You must try the green sauce!! Mojito drink was the best and the mountain was delicious.

Very disappointed today. My husband and I left work excited at going to Gallo's as I remembered their excellent latin food and today being Cinco de Mayo, I remembered their awesome margarita's. Although not a mexican restaurant, I thought it would be a good night. We arrived somewhat early about 5:00 and there was a lot of activity. A bouncer... More

My friend and I have been anxiously awaiting the appearance of some semblance of Spring and warmer weather (after a horrendous winter in New York). We had made plans to go out to dinner, and he suggested Gallo. Explaining it had a completely open wall to the outside and served Latin food, I said I was game. Not knowing what... More

We weren't planning on eating here and were not looking for Columbian food, but the liveliness drew us in! There is a fun bar when you walk in and the dining room off to the side. We were pleased with the menu and ended up ordering Fajitas. They were so great!! You can order sides with it like the cheddar,... More

Been here many times before always good. Always bragged to friends about the place so we took another couple with us this last time. We always get the skirt steak or the chicken but we decided to get the paella this time. Pretty much the worst we have ever had. I have the review at 3 stars based on my... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here. The food was delicious and the price was more than fair. Servings were large and the waitress we had was lovely. My husband ordered the Campers platter and it was a lot of food. There was steak, chicken, pork, sweet plantain, rice, etc., all very tasty. My husband is not an... More

Why anyone would choose a fast food restaurant, at its prices, over a restaurant like this is beyond me. My wife and I lunched here on a Saturday. Jose and Jessica, who were our greeter and server respectively, were friendly and courteous. The prices are exceptionally reasonable, and the portions were such that most people were taking food home. Yes,... More
