The service was great the drinks very good. The guacamole was made fresh at our table and was very generous. All the items we ordered was ample for 2. We had a great time. Middle of the afternoon so the crowd was light. Walked up and seated immediately in doors, the fly's outside where bad that afternoon.

As always, great service and excellent food. During these times of short staff and limited tables, the staff runs as fast and hard as they can.

What a gem located outside of Santa Fe! Granted it was a Monday night and we had no wait, but the food was great and the service was attentive and gracious. We had the street corn (to die for) and the steak fajitas that came out piping hot! And, yes we went for the table side guacamole which was also very fresh and tasty. We sat outside in the beautiful courtyard and watched the sunset in the mountains.

Good but not great Northern New Mexico food. Guacamole made at the table is always a highlight at Gabriel's Great patio -- excellent in times of Covid-19.

Pleasant and relaxing the food was nice but not really memorable, the service was fine although we had to ask repeatedly for refills for our hot tea on a very cold gray day.

Came at the tail end of a bachelorette weekend, and found this place after a quick dinner search. Every person we came in contact with, from the front to our server, Robert, was super nice, helpful, and you could tell they took pride in being there. Many of the people we met while waiting were regulars and spoke highly of everything there. Our meals were perfection and our drinks definitely kept the conversation flowing. Would highly recommend and will return!

The evening was nice, the place was packed, the weather as expected even with the Medio fires in the distance. Took forever to get waited on when ours didn't show up. I had the Puerto Vallarta fish/chicken dish which was overwhelmingly full of chicken, two tiny shrimp, and maybe one tiny piece of crab. The menu says it has lump crab ... well, not this time. My partner had a great traditional Mexican dish. When the waiter left the check he never returned to take my payment. Waited 10 or 15 minutes and finally got up and asked another waiter to take my debit card. Then and only then did our waiter show up ... his name is Sergio. Other reviews of Gabriel's complain of the service, and I get why. Come on guys.

Food amazing as always. We had a 7pm reservation and still had to wait about 30 minutes, but COVID and all, I won’t hold that against them. Staff was hard working and efficient. This is one of my favorite places to eat. Not just in SF, but period. We bought a container of mole sauce to go. It’s an amazing deal.

We are regular patrons of Gabriel's and although we had reservations for a birthday lunch, they seemed to be a bit "overwhelmed" with the lunch crowd on this particular day...perhaps they were short staffed. We did, however, have a delicious lunch and appreciate their efforts to make it an enjoyable experience.

Have eaten at Gabriel's several times and enjoyed the food and outdoor dining. The flies have always been annoying, but not enough to spoil the meal. This time however the soup and Carnitas were tasteless and lacking in any spice or flavorings. Tortilla Soup was really Squash soup with no flavor and a few tortilla strips on top. The Carnitas were soggy and again lacking in taste or texture. Very disappointed.

Lovely patio and we were seated right away but it was hot! They could use a misting system. Tableside guac was delicious. I had carne asada tacos and the meat was pretty fat. My daughter's chicken burritos was delish! Service was great!
