Came here for my birthday meal with my fiance. It was his first time here but I'd been previously with friends. We had the red sangria which was amazing and we decided that the guacamole was the best we've ever had! The puebla tacos were also great, as was the Oaxaca mozzarella appetizer.

They also brought me a little lemon tart with a candle which was a nice touch. We'll definitely be back!

Interesting and delicious dishes. Had the sea bass and it was extraordinary. Started with the guacomole. Had to order another, it was that good. Others raved about the Taco's. Highly recommended.

Service was a bit slow, which was unusual. Seemed like a slow night. Otherwise this restaurant is always a favorite.

This restaurant is a bit expensive, but the food is really good and original. The Mexican meals are revisited with unexpected ingredients like tangerine.

Everything we ate was excellent. We got chips and guacamole which were perfect. I ordered the enchiladas suiza and my husband got the pork tacos. Everything was prepared perfectly. Our waiter was very attentive and made sure we were well taken care of. I got their jalapeño margarita and it was good but I’ve had spicier jalapeño margaritas before and this was lacking some of the bite. I did see Pisco Sour on the drink menu and it looks like it’s prepared just like my family makes it in Chile, and I will probably order that next time. We were so full we didn’t try any of their desserts either. But we will be back, hopefully soon!

This is one really great restaurant! Loved everything about it except the noise level. The restaurant has perhaps the best and most unique Mexican food we have ever eaten. We loved it! We had the Carna Assad’s Tacos (flour) and they were like no Taco I have ever tasted. Very interesting, unusual, and wonderfully tasty. We also had the Enchallidas Souza. The best ever! The Tomatillo sauce is to die for! The restaurant is just enough upscale to be really nice without being over-the-top either with atmosphere, attitude, or price. Service is outstanding. Atmosphere wonderful (though loud) and yes the Margaritas are excellent too! Highly recommend to anyone who is tired of ordinary, same Mexican food. This is absolutely extraordinary and something completely different.

Everything from the chips and salsa, salad and vegetable tacos was incredibly flavorful. Best corn tortillas ever. The guacamole was almost like a mousse texture - just heavenly!! Most items on the menu are gluten free.

After swearing off Gabbi’s forever because of the bad service I received last visit, I came back because I just had to have the Pueblo tacos. This time was excellent! The hostess in the front had resting “unhappy” face and was less than welcoming. However, hour server Ramon was fantastic! Very accommodating, very nice without being over baring and recognized we were celebrating and brought us some ice cream. Very sweet and restored my faith in Gabbi’s. The food was consistent and amazing as usual. When we left there must have been a switch in shifts and another girl was at the podium - very nice and thanked us for dining!

Definitely not Mexican street food. All 4 of us loved our meals. Spectacular tastes.

Outstanding take on Mexican standards. Warm chips to go with salsa and guacamole are a nice touch to start. Meals are clearly crafted with attention to detail both in terms of presentation and taste. This was a repeat visit for us and won't be our last.

We were glad that we made the reservations, the place was packed (6:30 PM). Seated at a table for two we first noticed the interesting way that the restaurant was decorated with asundry items. Our waiter Orlando (sp?) was very knowledgeable and professional.
Both ordered tacos which I would highly recommend, fresh tortillas made in kitchen. The tacos had a delicious blend of ingredients. The order consists of two tacos and they were quite filling. A little on the pricey side but for me well worth it, total was $56 for two entrees and two drinks. Right on Glassell just south of the traffic circle.
