We have been to Gaby's many times over the last few summers. We've enjoyed their food when they were a smaller location across the street from their current location, and still enjoy their food. We went there last week and felt very safe in this...Covid environment. Some people chose to sit outside, and we chose inside. There was plenty of space between us and the other tables, and all our servers wore masks. We enjoyed the red sangria, the enchiladas and the burritos that we ordered, and there was enough to take leftovers home. We will return to Gaby's again and again.More

The food here is so good!! The first time I went we had a burrito 🌯 and it was huge! Then I went again with a friend and had a quesadilla oh was it so good. I think everything they serve here will be awesome!...I am definitely going again and again!! Also the servers are so nice and the restaurant is very clean.More

I've been visiting Gaby's for take-out during the pandemic, and they couldn't possibly make the experience easier. I call in advance, pay with a credit card (including the gratuity, which they soooooo deserve), pull up in front of the restaurant and, masked and gloved, they...run the food right out to the car. And their food is SOOOOO delicious! (Tonight I had fish tacos; last time I had the scallops dinner, both times with their incredible flan for dessert.) Dinners come with a big bag of their signature nachos, with homemade guacamole and salsa. Gaby's is just the BEST...a wonderful, wonderful meal!!!More

I have been here before and was very pleased. The chicken enchiladas I had today were good, just a bit under spiced. I would like a bit more seasoning. Portion size was large, service pleasant and prompt. A reasonably priced option to get good food...- just ask for additional spices!More

Gaby's Cafe is a very attractive restaurant, but more important is the quality of the food, service and prices. It is the best Mexican food I have eaten, and they will make it as spicy as you want. I rarely go to Ellenville, but definitely...know where I'll be eating. There is one hour free street parking, but if you need more time there is a free municipal parking lot across the street.More

I was served lemonade with a bug in the glass last night. No apologies when I changed to cola. Actually charged me for the lemonade, that cost more than the cola. I guess maybe an extra charge for the bug. Bill came to $95.00 for...2 meals,1 Tostada and a $11.00 Bloody Mary with a piece of lemon and lime, would it kill them to add an olive at that price. The food was good but over priced for what they give. No sides,salad or soup or bread. Chips and salsa free. Manager, who I approached, gave me an annoyed look when I suggested that at the very least the "bug drink" should have be comped by the waiter with an apology. He actually said to me it is only $3.00 and the waiter does not know any better. He then ask me "what would you like for me to do",duh. I suggested he comp both the lemonade and Bloody Mary. In disgust, he took the bill to adjust and he minuses the $3.00 bug lemonade, what a sport. He did say I am sorry as he handed me the adjusted bill. That was my fourth and finale time at Gaby's.,More

Love this restaurant, great choices, fresh food, and reasonable prices. What more can I say? Try it next time you are in Ellenville. Located downtown.

Great little Mexican joint with a wonderful ambience and fantastic food. The tableside guacamole is to die for. They have a pretty solid mariachi band on Wednesday nights too. Definitely surprising to find in a small NY town.
