    Honestly, if you’ve been in Santa Fe a few days and tired of your nightly dinner cost busting your budget! Head to Gabriel’s! Great atmosphere especially in the garden and the food is perfect every time! Great service, great fajitas and Guacamole made at your table! Check out their great menu! Several Seafood options!

    If you like margaritas this is the place, if you’re in a group get the pitcher, and make it the silver coin, it’s only 10 dollars more and so amazing!

    I was so disappointed with my Easter meal. The waiter was rushed and inattentive. The salsa tasted like it was canned and tomato sauce based - really terrible! It was extremely noisy even though half filled. The staff is rushing around like crazy people but won't slow down to listen to the customers or show they give a damn. We will never go back. It was once a wonderful place to go but no more...sad.

    We ate here back in May 2021, and the food, service, and ambiance were all stellar. We raved about it to anyone who would listen! Fast forward to this past Saturday night, and it was SUCH a stark contrast. Service: our server was super-rushed and seemed way too busy to have handled another table. He never even looked at us the entire time. Just wanted to grab our orders and quickly leave. As a former server, I have lots of grace for busy people, but this was NOT what I anticipated. I would expect that kind of server behavior at say, a busy late night diner, but this was a sit-down dinner at a Zagat-rated restaurant. He greeted us with his eyes darting around at everyone else, not looking at us, and he tried to immediately upsell the $18 tableside guac, but we hadn't even opened the menu yet. After our food was dropped off, he NEVER came back to check on us. Not once. We finished our food, and then sat there with our dirty plates in from of us for almost 30 minutes. The only reason anyone helped us is because I tried to flag down our original server, but another server heard me say, "Excuse me" and helped us instead. Food & drink: Starting off, my wine glass was dirty. Then comes the crab tostada: definitely the saving grace of the meal. My husband's carnitas plate was just okay; the meat was overdone, and they served it on a fajita plate that kept cooking it. However, my chicken mole was SO bad. The mole itself was good; it was the chicken that was the problem. It had either been steamed or baked with a lid on it, and my plate was SWIMMING in water from it. The texture of the chicken was super wet, too; strange and not enjoyable. I couldn't even finish it. We're super-bummed. This place was SO good 3 years ago, yet it seems to have taken a nosedive since. Maybe it was just an off night, but it was only our second time there. I'd prefer my odds to be better than 50/50, especially in a city 6 hours from home that we traveled to. We sadly won't be returning.

    I did not know l liked guacamole, but I do now, very much. Fresh made at your table. It’s a must have. Queso was greatso. Cheese enchiladas were muy bueno. Don’t forget the sopapillas, you won’t be hungry, but loose the belt and get on with it.

    If you’re looking for authentic Mexican food this is not it. Something has changed. Not the same Gabriel’s. Hot sauce is different & not in a good sense. We couldn’t figure out - is it ketchup… is it cocktail sauce… what is this?? It was sweet & just not good. Fajitas not fresh or sizzling. Meat chewy. Didn’t eat. Chili rellleno plate drenched in tomato sauce. Also, did not eat. Sopapillas, guacamole & beer were great. So that’s what we had for dinner. Sadly we will not be back.

    I booked a 50th Birthday party of 8 to start. Was easy to book on line. More people RSVP and had to call and add 2 more people. The gal on the phone was nice and added the 2 with no issues. We were set up on a nice long table in one of the back rooms. It was away from the normal busy floor daily routine as this restaurant gets real busy. I think there was 3 waiters in attendance of us and did a great job with all that was needed for my party of so many. We were not rushed and had plenty of time to sit and visit and had time to serve the cake. The staff came out and sang happy birthday and set up the cake we brought with a lit candle and plates for the event. Great staff, food is always top notch, and just a great atmosphere any time we go there. Thanks again for the good food and service. Steve Rivera White Rock, NM

    Great food and excellent value. Service was just OK but that was probably a fluke. It was my daughter's 21st birthday. The margarita was lackluster, nothing special. We felt a little like an afterthought with regard to service. She had carnitas and I had steak tacos which we enjoyed! The vegetables and meat were cooked perfectly. We still plan to return. It seemed to be busy even at 330p Saturday.

    The food was very tasty. I got the chimichangas and my wife got the seafood fajitas. The portions are plenty and my wife brought home lunch for the next day. We added a few house margaritas which were delicious. If you’ve never checked this place out you are missing out. They also do table side guacamole and the free chips and salsa are the best.

    Nice lunch, out of the way from busy downtown Santa Fe. Tableside Guacamole was good, not the best I’ve ever had, the leftover was actually better the next day with some additional salt. Enchiladas were pretty good, loved the sauces. I’m not usually tamale fan, this one didn’t change that, but glad I tried it. Overall, enjoyed the lunch experience and glad I went.

    It was a busy Friday night so we didn’t mind the wait. Our server was busy but attentive. This was our first time dinning at Gabriel’s and had high hopes since we love Mexican/new Mexican/southwestern food but were a bit disappointed. Flavor was lacking in our dishes although the salsa and chips was delicious.
