Service was a bit slow compared to other times we have dined there. Not sure if the fish was cooked long enough. Otherwise the other entrees were delicious and the guacamole was as usual scrumptious.

When you visit Santa Fe, you need to take a drive and eat at Gabriel’s’ to experience authentic Santa Fe style Mexican food.

Dinner on the patio with the table side guacamole. Salsa is excellent but the chips were slightly stale. Fish tacos were very good. So were the fajitas. We will be back

Same great food and service as before with a more limited menu during the pandemic. Still making guacamole at the table, just with a plexiglass screen.

Service was horrible! We have dined there several times and have had the same type of service. It had been over a year so decided to give it another try. The waiters do not great you. Every time we asked for something they seemed irritated. Not once did they reply after we thanked them. The food was mediocre. My shrimp fajitas was mainly onion. Guacamole and margaritas were good. The patio is beautiful with the fresh flowers and scenery of the mountains. Unfortunately can’t get passed the horrible service. Will not return.

Carne Avodada is appropriately spicy. Tacos are always good. Cannot recommend tortilla soup. Killer Margaritas. Definitely stays on our essential New Mexican list.

Our server was outstanding, his name was Robert!! The hot steamy fajitas on the skillet were awesome, we had steak and red snapper, I highly suggest the steak. The quac is an all time favorite here, and I definitely understand why ! We paid around 50$, for a big fajita plate that comes with beans and rice, 2 beers, quac, chips and salsa. I would highly suggest coming here! It was my boyfriend’s 21st birthday, and they gave him free flan also! The menu also has options for the whole family, this is a great place for any sort of get together. There’s also an option to sit outside or in! The patio is beautiful, and they even have a friendly cat! I also did see a dog, so I believe the patio is dog-friendly.

Gabriele's was such a nice experience at noon--the waiter was working many tables in this unusual time, but he performed beautifully, and the food was fabulous. The guacamole was the best I've ever had.

They’re still getting the COVID standards down I had. 6:30pm reservations and was seated at 7pm with no acknowledgment of a birthday celebration. I’ll try another outdoor patio next time . Food quality good but didn’t serve the purpose , we were tucked away in a corner . There were two tops in the patio. Bad hostess

Out of town friends. We always enjoy Gabriel’s . The only thing I could complain about is the portion size of the table side guacamole. It was much smaller than usual and I think the price was the same

Service could really use improvement. The guacamole although delicious was not prepared as before, where we are asked what and how much of the extras we would like. We were not attended to after seating for quite a while, had to order entrees after the guacamole and we asked for someone, and had to wait a very long time for the check.
