Outside of town but worth the drive
Great guacamole made table side. Can't go wrong with the fajitas or fish tacos.

Perfect Mother's Day Lunch
Gabriels was the perfect place. We arrived 15 min early for our 12:15 reservations. We were seated immediately in a beautiful patio under umbrellas. When we were leaving though, the line was growing waiting for a table. Don't know if they had reservations or not. Our server was really on top of things. Brought out our pitcher of the best Sangria and of course we had a bowl of made at the table guacamole. Done to your specifications. A basket of chips and salsa and we were set. We waited a while for our food to arrive but we were enjoying the beautiful flowers and scenery. Fish tacos were amazing. Chimichangas looked great too. Hubby ordered the chile rellenos and they were so good. Patio dining doesn't get any better.

A little out of town, but
A little out of town, but a spacious and friendly restaurant with good southwestern food. Been there 4 or 5 times this year so far and never have been disappointed

Authentic Mexican, not New Mexican
Outside of town about 15 minutes, Gabriels is an established dining spot with great food! Tableside guacamole is not to be missed. We enjoyed every bite.

Holy guacamole, Batman!
This place is great! (Especially the guacamole and the salsa.)

We had lunch at Gabriel's
We had lunch at Gabriel's and enjoyed the authentic Mexican cuisine. Service was friendly, but a little slow over the busy lunch hour. Enjoyable experience.

We have been to Gabriel's many times over the past 10 years. The inside is noisy on weekends, but the outside experience we had recently was wonderful! The food was perfectly seasoned and served hot. Best Guacamole in town!

Gabriel's makes their guacamole table-side. Very tasty. Can't say that I know of any of restaurants that offer this option.

A regular of ours
for many years. Always fresh guacamole made at the table. Silver margaritas are excellent.

Authentic New Mexican Food
Great Authentic Mexican food. Worth the drive from Santa Fe!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Must have guacamole..
made at your table. Great way to start your meal. Also consider the Silver Coin Margarita.
A true institution in the Santa Fe area.
Do not miss...

Excellent Service, great guacamole
Gabriel's has one of the more pleasant dining patios I have seen. Service was extremely attentive, and our waiter was familiar with the menu and had several strong recommendations that were well received by our party. The made-at-tableside guacamole is a must-order item, very delicious and balanced, the best guacamole I've had in quite some time. I usually am not a fan of flan, but the flan here was notably good, beautiful texture and just the right amount of sweetness.

Great New Mexican cuisine
We had a nice lunch with combination plate. Very good red and green chile toppings.
It was so good that we went back the next night with friends.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love it that they ASSUME you want guacamole as soon as you sit down.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gabriel's is known for their quacamole made fresh table side, made to how you like it. Their salsa has a nice kick with warm chips served. I recommend the Carne Adovada. It was served with rice, beans and corn. My wife's seafood fajitas was the only disappointment as the shrimp and fish was overcooked and dry. She said the scallops was the only thing prepared correctly. The tortilla soup was excellent as well as the enchilada plate. The service was great and staff very attentive. If the weather is nice, sit on the patio. The vistas are unique and you can see the Santa Fe ski basin off in the distance. Gabriel's has a full service bar, so the NM margarita is available to quench anyone's thirst. It's worth the trip.

There are 2 or 3 restaurants in the Santa Fe area that my wife and I must visit each time we are in Santa Fe. Gabriel's is at the top of the list. It's not right in town, but it's worth the beautiful drive. The margaritas and guacamole are must haves. A great place to go for a relaxed, informal meal.

How did they know?
I cannot say enough about the creamy and fresh guacamole with warm chips. I opted for the carnitas as did a friend and they were tender and moist, although I was a little disappointed that there was not more crust and salt on the outside of the pieces, a more traditional CA style. My husband and other diner ordered the Pollo Mole and it was excellent. I've never seen too people polish their plates so quickly. The service was excellent. I was even given a lesson in their particular napkin folding tradition. The entire staff was welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. We'd be there tomorrow for lunch or dinner if we didn't live 65 miles away, although it is worth the drive. Best Mexican food we've had in NM to date.

The best traditional Mexican food in the Santa Fe area!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Restaurant and Food
We had an enjoyable dinner, food was good, service was good, a generally good experience. No complaints about the service. Highly recommend the Cowboy Steak - a good and generous NY Strip with enough additions to knock your socks off.

Very Good Food
We had good New Mexican food for a reasonable price. The Polla Mole was excellent. The service was quick and attentive. We will definitely go back.

Better Late Than Never
I've lived in Santa Fe for twenty years and had neglected to try Gabriel's. I won't make that mistake again. It was a great choice for our small group. Friendly, helpful staff. Outstanding food. My only ding would be a limited wine list, but that's really not what they're about.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great guacamole cart...made table side. Always good and a constant craving. outdoor patio is nice during summer months when open...love the fajitas (to split), tacos al carbon, baby back ribs (not in smothered sweet bbq sauce). friends love the burritos and enchiladas...but when asked to smother with green chile....they don't get smothered. casual, generally quick service and very good. sometimes order sangria...other time kj chardonnay, beer or margaritas.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
pretty good but...
Chips and salsa were great. The good came out expediently. But we had empty drinks for most if the night.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was definitely worth the drive out. The food was fantastic and the property beautiful. Great service.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great traditional NM food
and a few Mexican classics very well done too. Extensive alcohol selection. Nice fireplace and attentive staff.

Santa Fe Favorite for Mexican
Start with the Guacamole made at the table.
Enjoy the Plato de Carnitas and take the leftovers home for a second meal. Fajitas, Fish Tacos, and Enchiladas are all good.
A margarita on the rocks is always a good compliment.
I never seem to have room for desert.
It's a good place to bring a friend to celebrate their birthday.
Service is always friendly and prompt.

One of our favorites in Santa Fe area. Worth the drive out.
