Visited there for the second week in a row (which I don't usually do) as I had tickets to a show in the area. The restaurant is casual and small, however the food it DELICIOUS. The service is great.

On a Wednesday night this location was steady but not overwhelmingly busy. So why did it take 17 minutes to even get glass of water? The food was even slower. I've been to other locations and expected similar pub food, instead, I received mediocre lukewarm food. Fries should never be served cold!!!

My wife and I walked up to this restaurant for lunch after visiting Ripley's Aquarium. The server was very friendly, and very efficient. Service was excellent, and the food was very good. Not top quality but it's not a high-end place either. Very good value for what you pay for, and better food than other fast casual chains we've had... More

I did feel a bit bad for the server, as he took care of much of the restaurant, but... The fish tacos were great. I loved them. My friend's order, on the other hand. Wrong sandwich altogether. It was sent back and the replacement was correct, I guess, but not very appealing. The guy was just not nice. I'm sorry... More

Food here is totally fast, fried but not fab. Service was good, staff nice, beer excellent & the food acceptable. Bit too fried, but it filled a hole.

Apparently the kitchen is under staffed today, however, we weren't informed of this until we had already been waiting over 40 minutes for our food. Once we finally received our food, my husband received everything for his fajitas except for the hot plate. The first server we asked said our regular server would get it, and our regular server blamed... More

Description
Welcome to Gabby's, a Canadian restaurant/bar chain with a strong focus on great quality, mainstream casual food at affordable prices. Proudly Serving Neighbourhoods for 22 years! Gabby's was founded in 1989 by a local Toronto based family. Situated on Yonge Street, north of Lawrence Avenue in the heart of a populated upper-middle-class neighbourhood, the concept was simply to create a cozy environment that was well suited to have great conversations, served quality freshly cooked meals and offered great draft beer and spirit selections. After more then two decades of fine-tuning, product development, and loads of hard work, we have what you see today. As of 2012, we have eighteen locations (15 under the banner name Gabby's) We currently serve over 35,000 customers a week. Today, we still offer a stimulating atmosphere with lots of conversation pieces on the walls and serve excellent quality, fresh cooked meals. We are defined as a main stream casual dining restaurant with an integrated sports bar area that caters to the community and local businesses. We provide friendly, attentive service in a relaxed environment by staff and owners that truly enjoy their job.

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
