Have eaten at Gabriel’s many times and kind of wish it had remained undiscovered because it is always so busy now.
Had a reservation for 6, but so did many people so seating was delayed by quite a while.
Guess that is to be expected with social distancing and on a holiday weekend.
I wish I had ordered extra sopapilla’s to go because I could live on them, best I have ever tasted!

Loved the scenic drive from Santa Fe to the restaurant. The place is quite spacious, with several different indoor areas, as well as an outdoor patio. The tables were spaced up to ten feet apart, both inside and out. The margaritas were tasty, as was the fresh guacamole, made table-side. Unfortunately the entrees were not that impressive. We were hoping the mole would be outstanding in this region, unfortunately it was only average and a bit bland. The grilled carnitas with accompaniments was rather dry. Also hoping for great flan, but I e had much better elsewhere. Disappointed.

Overall poor experience. With reservations, we were left standing and waiting for 20-25 minutes. There was no communication or apology from the receptionist about the wait. Confusion abounded as a long line of people with and without reservations were left to fend for themselves as the restaurant did not seem to care. Once seated, our server was friendly and attentive. The food was fair at best. The corn on the cob was not fresh and appeared to be left over from the day before. The chicken dish with shrimp and crab had a single shrimp and a single piece of crab meat. Disappointing. We have had better experiences in the past before the pandemic.

We read such positive reviews for Gabriel's that we decided to make the journey from Santa Fe for dinner. Overall we were disappointed in the atmosphere that others raved about. We did not find the gardens or interior very charming. The food was just ok, nothing to rave about.

Gabriel's is our number one spot when friends and relatives come to town. We had not been since the COVID outbreak, and this was our first choice to venture out for the first time. It did not fail us - always great, and always a pleasure!

It was ok. The food came out warm, not hot. It was upscale mexican, but I was hoping for something a bit more inventive. Service - hoping for some post pandemic enthusiasm - maybe we are out of practice.

The best thing about Gabriel's was the view from the back patio. Honestly, the server was overworked with too many tables. The food was mediocre, (mole enchiladas and the Chicken Puerto Vallarta) and the "house margarita" was bad - watery and flavorless. I may come there again for the view, but not for the food!

Loved our dinner and our time spent at Gabriel’s. Making reservations online was quick and easy and we only had to wait five minutes upon our arrival. We didn’t mind the wait and we’re very pleased with everything.

My friend and I decided to get out of Albuquerque for the afternoon and go have lunch in Santa Fe at Gabriel’s. We had a great time, I’ve been there before, but it was the first time for her. She absolutely loved it! The food was amazing, the service was great, and we sat outside in the patio. Overall a great experience.
