    Great homemade chips and salsa to start. We had multiples of each brought over. All four diners ordered fajitas, two chicken and two veggie. While not spectacular they were quite good and what was not eaten was taken home and finished as second dinner (with some of the chips too). Beware, the refried bean when ordering the chicken or non-veggie fajita has bacon, so sub out like we do for the veggie refried beans, which we all agreed afterward were smooth and delicious!

    Wonderful food, exceptional service, friendly staff. Patio is large and very nice. Worth the drive out although maps tried to take us thru a subdivision. Just follow directions on their website. They are more than willing to accommodate food allergies etc. Highly encourage making reservations. Enjoy!!

    Sit outside, the view is great! It’s a busy, popular place so don’t be in a rush to eat and you will be pleased with your experience. Margaritas are well above average in Santa Fe (which are surprising disappointing here). The food is tasty and hot to your table. A must have are the table side made guacamole and the elote for the table.

    Gabriel’s is a very busy restaurant especially on Mother’s Day. We decided to see if we could get in on our way home after a long day hiking. We sat outside on their large patio. The ground was full of tortilla chips and food. We had to wait 20 minutes which was to be expected on such a busy day. The table side preparation of guacamole was great. My husband had a steak burrito which he enjoyed and I had chili rellenos. They were just a couple of thin bland chilies filled and covered with a huge amounts of cheese and bland red sauce. The server was running and taking care of a lot of people and forgot our silverware 3 times so we just stared at our food. He was doing the best he could under difficult circumstances. It was very average food and I would prefer not to return.

    This is one of my favorite go to places. The reason I like it is because it is out of town, has great ambiance, a lovely courtyard to dine al fresco. They make great margaritas and sangria. The ribs is my favorite and out of the last six times I have been there I have had the ribs five times. The sauce is exceptional and the service is always warm, friendly and effecient. Very hospitable and I take all of my out of town guests there and they love it too.

    While the food was standard Gabriel's fair the service n waiting to be served was poor to almost non-existent. We ordered the guacamole filled up on that and intended to share a meal. We ordered the carnitas w/ 2 plates n a side o beans, n got 2 orders of carnitas n a side of beans. The dining rooms were not full but the waiters we're running around like crazy. A lot o bluster for very little service.

    We had Easter "brunch" here recently and we thoroughly enjoyed it. While the dining room was full, it didn't feel overly crowded. The noise level was high but after coming out of the pandemic, it was a welcome sound. Everyone around us also seemed to enjoy their surroundings and meals. The wait staff was excellent and not rushed. They were efficient and warm. We got our meals and drinks without too much of a wait (we were among the first ones in at the opening time of 11:30 am). We had the chicken and the seafood fajitas and the standard green chile enchilada plate. This is Mexican cuisine, not northern New Mexican food and there is a difference. Gabriel's excels in seafood entrees, caesar salad, elote, and grilled beef/chicken items. In the past, we have had the crab enchiladas, chicken mole, and the cowboy steak...all were good. If you want sopaipillas they are happily provided; just remember to ask. The Guac here is the best in all of New Mexico. You can personalize it to include the amount of ingredients. The cocktails and beer selection are also very good. Gabriel's is famous for their margaritas but I have had other drinks here and they were excellent. The prickly pear margarita with the blanco (silver) Patron is good...not too sweet. The ambiance is wonderful with seasonal outdoor patio dining a favorite. The inside dining is also quite nice especially if you get a window table. When you leave make sure and check out the south east patio (if there is not a band playing) for beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristo Mts...

    Think the patio could use face lift - the patio does not match the beautiful interior and entrance decor. Looks like an after thought of cheap metal chairs - does nothing with the great view from the patio.
