I've been going there on and off since they opened-14 years ago last week. REAL deal. Great choices and the owner, David is great guy. Bring a date, stop at the bar or the entire family. All winners.

This was my first experience of trying out Colombian cuisine and I was not disappointed. The restaurant is located on the busy main street of Patchhogue, Long Island. The portion sizes were generous and the food was very delicious. Staff was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend

Stopped by here with the family. Beautiful and cozy atmosphere brick design restaurant and bar. Staff was very friendly. Spanish food was very fresh and delicious. They used processed cheese on nachos. Other that that everything was fresh and the prices were very reasonable. We all loved the rice!

We had the nachos which I loved. I know some people are turned off by the liquid type of melted cheese. I personally live that. Don't be quick to assume that it's processed cheese. It is possible to turn shredded cheese into a cheese sauce. Their green sauce was amazing. We put it on everything. The skirt steak was great.... More

I went here with my boyfriend last Saturday night. The location of this restaurant was perfect walking distance from the parking lots behind Main Street. I heard from friends that this restaurant was very good. It didn't disappoint. For drinks I had an iced tea and my boyfriend had about four glasses of water. I had the calamari,yellow rice with...

Waitresses and waiters were speaking too loud right next to the tables where people were eating. Somebody who worked at the restaurant had a baby crying out loud and all of the workers were spending their time checking on every movement of the baby instead of checking on the customers that were waiting for refills and checks. They were speaking... More

This is a good place to eat. The steak sandwich was good. Bread might have been too much and too crunchy but the meal was satisfying. Next time I'll try the arroz con pollo.

Everytime I come here I feel like I'm on vacation. Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Love the sangria and music. Can get very busy due to popularity. Right on main street. When the weather is nice they open the French doors to main street and you can hear the music and see the crowd inside. Friendliest staff in town. Nice... More

My daughter has been to Gallo many times and took my husband there for dinner a few months back while I was away visiting family because I tend to be a fussy eater and he likes Spanish food. He came away raving about the food and said he thought I'd like it as it wasn't spicy (the way Mexican food... More
