I used to like Gabbi's. The atmosphere is lovely, and the near-sidewalk seating adds to the ambiance. I've even held a few small parties of 10-15, and my guests enjoy the food very much and return on their own with families and friends. The last three or four times have disappointed, however, and I won't return. There are too many... More

Very pricey. They had a special the night we visited for chile rellanos. We ordered it. It came out as one small rellano. It was $19. We ordered more from the appetizer menu and a couple of margaritas and it ate our $100 gift card like it was a tortilla chip. Left hungry.

I came here because I'd heard great things about this hidden gem. My colleague and I shared the chicken taquitos for an appetizer. For lunch, we shared the shrimp enchiladas which were amazing. Probably the best I've ever had! We also had the kale salad and broccolini which had garbanzo beans on top. We were blown away by the fresh... More

Extremely high quality food and unquestionably worth a visit. Any place that relies on word of mouth and still has long waitlist is a safe choice. Upper end price but worth it.

We fell upon this little gem while on a business trip in Anaheim. The food was absolutely amazing. We will be definitely booking this place to take clients on our next trade show.

Downtown Orange has one of the best Mexican food places in the OC. Make reservations for this delight as you are going to need them. Everything off the menu is simply awesome and bar tenders can make it just right! The décor fits so well which adds to the dinning experience. The servers are some of the best and will... More

This is the second time I have been here by some friends who live close by and swear by the place. I am not a big Mexican food fan (tacos and fajitas normally) but the food at this place is just incredible and full of flavor. We started with empanada de veinto - great combination of flavor with the shrimp... More

I agree with another reviewer, there really isn't any 'signage' indicating you have 'passed' Gabbi's. My son eats here often and recommended we met for dinner. We did munch on guacamole (very very good!) and homemade chips to start. The service was impeccable. If you drink tequila then I am sure they have what you are looking for! A nice... More

I had a difficult time finding Gabbi's as there are no signs at all. Definitely a word-of-mouth place. The food is outstanding as is the atmosphere and margaritas. Anything on the menu will be a taste treat.
