    Had a reservation but arrived a little early and went into the bar, where my date and I ended up ordering dinner as well. We both tried different items from the menu and were very pleased with our meals. Both the food and service were excellent. Dinner was a very enjoyable experience.

    Delightful dining experience. Pretty patio, nice bar area, really good food with some unexpected twists, comp chips+salsa (don't see much of that in Santa Fe) and REALLY sweet accommodating staff, from welcoming hostess to all wait staff.

    Sunday lunch was crowded, definitely needed a reservation. Guacamole service always a highlight. Unfortunately, food cold, masa on tamales was cold as were mole enchiladas. Tough to get good service and good was moderately expensive. Will have to try again another time

    Dinner on a Saturday night is always Dicey. Restaurant was very busy and the wait staff and Kitchen did an admirable job. However our entrees did not arrive hot. More lukewarm. Tasted good. The Guacamole was excellent as always. I would return but on a day that is less busy.

    The guacamole was really good and was made at our table quickly. Service after that fell apart. The good I had was ok, a steak quesadilla, very little steak. If you wanted refills of tea, you had to work for it.

    We ate on the patio on a beautiful September evening. The food was great and our waiter was attentive and very personable. We dined with friends that we had not gotten to talk to for quite a while and ended up setting at our table, talking until closing. When we decided to leave, we noticed that we were one of one of only three tables in the restaurant with customers at them. No one had disturbed us and made us feel that we were staying too long. The food, ambience, and service made for a really nice evening with our friends. We will go back again.

    We were seated and were brought chips that were from the bottom of the bag, broken and tiny so we had difficulty eating our table side prepared guacamole. The woman who prepared the guacamole at our table didn’t say a word to us, so what’s the point of having guacamole prepared at your table? The flies outside were unbearable. The fish tacos were dry and tasteless. Not going back.

    The food, wait staff and hostess were great. We thought maybe they're short-staffed as the tables in the lounge area weren't wiped off and no one had checked the women's room in awhile as they were out of toilet paper in one stall and running low on paper towels. We so appreciate the creative vegan and vegetarian items on the menu plus who doesn't like guacamole made table side! We really love Gabriel's and will return. Hopefully, the staff will, too!

    Had to wait 15 min to be seated with a reservation. Ordered the table side guacamole - the thing they are know for - the guacamole cart never made it to our table. Service was very slow. Drink refills were never offered. Took a while to straighten out the check to remove the missing guacamole. We easily would have spent twice what we did, had we received what we ordered and had a second round of drinks. Green chili was tasteless and bland, tamales were so-so. Crab enchiladas were just okay. Not worth the drive. This place used to be good. Won’t be back.

    Lively enclosed patio with umbrellas and peek pastoral view, however patio has a fly problem. Some vegetarian and chicken dishes served with meat based chili-beware! Limited gluten free items do not include chips. Fajitas are pre-made and hence cannot be customized. 10 min north of Santa Fe proper and ample parking though far spaces smell of cow pasture.

    This has always been one of our favorite restaurants in the Santa Fe area. Unfortunately, on this occasion we found the food quality, service and ambience has significantly reduced from previous years. Will no longer be on our list of special restaurants to visit.

    I used to always recommend Gabriel’s to friends during opera season - no more after this visit. The restaurant, like many during COVID, has gone from “wow” to “meh” in a few short years. Any item ordered with shredded beef will be more onions than beef. The table-side guacamole is a joke, consisting of one and a half avocados for $12. Flies are *everywhere* around the outside patio - it needs a good hose-down and thorough deep cleaning.
