Our main complaint was honoring our reservation. Upon arrival @ 6:20 we confirmed our reservation for 6:30 we were finally seated at 7:50. Granted they were very busy; but what is the purpose of a reservation. The service after being seated was good as was food. We were seated at a very small table in a traffic area. The reason we rated the restaurant this high was the wait staff.

Our first time at Gabriel’s and it won’t be our last! Everything from the moment we parked our car to when we left our table was exceptional!! Food was delicious & fresh and service was over the top.
Thank you for a memorable evening!

We've eaten at Gabriel's many times. We ate inside this time and brought guests from NY. We loved it; guacamole table side, 2 orders of fajitas that each couple shared and margaritas. I can't say enough about the service, food, and affordable prices. Look forward to going again.

Your Restaurant is Excellent. The food was fantastic. I enjoyed having our guacamole made fresh at our table. Service was spot on even with a good crowd of diners. I suggest you book a reservation online to save a wait for a table. Impressive restaurant.

I had been wanting to eat here for several years…finally had the chance…
I can’t fault the waitstaff as they were running like crazy … BUT if you can’t handle it don’t seat people or take reservations… it was a full 45 minutes after we we ordered that was got our food.. long after people around us who were seated after us had finished eating!
One of our meals was wrong… it was as if they threw it together… maybe our order wasn’t put in??? Whatever the case a simple communication would have been appreciated.. we had to ask for takeout boxes when our meal was delivered…
The restaurant itself is pretty… art is great but food was just mediocre.

Had to wait a little while, not too long, even though we'd made a reservation. Service was moderately timely but lacked accuracy. Both me and another, out of a table of four had a requested modification (s) to our orders, neither of which were done. Perhaps the server couldn't hear due to the noise level, which is moderate to quite loud on a Saturday evening there. Overall not a great value, unfortunately.

We were visiting Santa Fe and wanted some fajitas. The guacamole was delicious! We had steak and chicken fajitas and they were pretty good too. The Spanish rice was delicious too! The staff was very busy but very friendly. We were in and out in an hour.

Never did see the sunset! But it was too cold to be outside. I guess none of the inside tables allow you to see the sunset?

As expected, very busy. There was a slight delay being seated and as a party of four seated at a table for six in a location that was not conducive to conversation, the dining experience was not ideal. But the food was delicious and service fine for the challenging times of understaffing. Patience is necessary. Worth the drive for sure. Value superb.
