I grew up in the Caribbean and know the difference between fresh and not-so-fresh seafood.....and I was impressed by Gadaleto's. The atmosphere is informal and far from fancy. You get the impression that this is a place to do some serious seafood eating....and it is....The business is a top shelf seafood market which serves what it sells. Go in and turn left at the door to access the market and you will see the freshness and quality of their goods. The restaurant is in a separate ambiance to the right. You order at the counter and the very friendly staff will deliver to your table. We had terrific fried calamari and some very yummy oysters which were paired with a couple of frigid Stellas. Without doubt, this is one of the best seafood restaurants in the area....it's a keeper.More

I don't know why we'd never tried at Gadaleto's before COVID. Since we stopped eating out at our regular places in March 2020, we decided to expand our horizon, and order out from new venues. Since we've discovered Gadaleto's, we just can't get enough of...their takeout cooked food. Prime quality seafood, cooked simply and deliciously. Can't wait for them to get back after the holiday break! Yummm...More

Came to buy fresh seafood for dinner. There were a wide array of options, we decided to go with bass. It was exceptional - fresh and wonderful flavor. Best place locally for seafood

Oysters, Fresh Fish, and quality have been the reasons we are frequent visitors to this restaurant. We like to bring friends to share the menu. The restaurant is not “romantic “, unless you put real value of food quality over view. This is the real...deal in quality fish prepared with knowledgeable chief.More

Really wanted to make clams and linguini for our New Year's Eve dinner and was so disappointed with the VERY SALTY clams I got from Gadaleto's. It was entirely inedible. I had to throw away the entire meal. Such a disappointment to put so much...time, effort, and money into a meal that ended up in the garbage. And embarrassing to have to explain to my guests.More

Four of us for dinner. Crab cakes were fresh and delicious! Entree salads were very large with good size portion of your choice of fish from the board cooked to your liking. All around a delightful experience. Excellent service too. Will be back!

The restaurant is 12 tables next to the market. The food is amazing. The fish is always fresh. The fried oysters are great and we just discovered the amazing apple fritter desert. Love this place!

Place is small as others noted. If one has to wait it gets crowded and you get hit with the entrance door in the back. No objection having to enter through the store and see all the fish. Actually interesting. While living in New Paltz...for 14 years only visited the place twice and now again to check if my initial evaluation still is valid. Unfortunately it is. Place is expensive and for the price the amount of fish one gets on a plate is more like an appetizer. Had steamed mussels and grilled salmon with 2 sides. I will give it that it is very fresh and tastes very good. Steamed mussels would have been better in a different broth (was wine) and maybe should be boiled in that broth. Not their fault, it's their style to offer, just not my taste in mussels. As for service there is only one knowledgeable person (Friendly, curly tall guy, who can't keep up with everything) , who can inform you about the type of the fish, what it tastes like and make recommendations. There is a fish board, one has to get up for to read what is fresh/latest catch. Just how difficult would it be to type up a sheet on the computer , print it out and put it into the menu for the day? Our waitress was attentive and friendly, but had none of the main guy's skills. In summary, not enough value for the money AND needs attention to detail. Again, to be fair the fish tasted excellent, so did Cole slaw and salad (was not asked for kind of dressing we would like) but at these prices one has to overlook a lot to give it more stars than I did.More

We had such a good meal here. We shared a not-so-simple salad (with beets, nuts and other good stuff) and lemon sole with garlic cream sauce, sweet potato fries and sautéed garlic snow peas. It was all perfectly prepared.
