Great alternative/substitute for loud, crowded, somewhat overpriced establishments in the Santa Fe Plaza area. The 20 minute drive out of town is well worth it. The menu offers a wide variety of authentic Southwest dishes with local healthy, tasty ingredients. Excellent food, good value, fun casual ambiance. Highly recommend, and will visit again on my next trip to Santa Fe.

We were visiting Santa Fe for the first time and had dinner at Gabriel's based on the positive reviews here (although the reviews are mixed). The guacamole was good, but good guacamole is not hard to find, even in Philadelphia, where we live. The rest of the meal was unremarkable. There are many much better restaurants in Santa Fe. We would not have another meal at this restaurant again.

The food was good but not much for the price. I paid $21 for steak fajitas and had maybe 6oz of steak. The margaritas were pricey at $9-$12 for a relativly small amount and clearly made with a mix you can buy at a local supermarket. Moreover, I had 3 and felt nothing. Great service and nice atmosphere though.

We were 4: parents & out o town son & husand Gabriel’s food is Authentic New Mexican - green Chile is just right & abundant. Service was excellent. Margueritas were judged “watery” by the younger members of the party - so much so that they came home and mixed their own.

Visiting from upstate New York and desiring true New Mexico cuisine; on the recommendation of many of my husband‘s coworkers, we tried Gabriel‘s. The reviews were all over the place, but we had zero complaints. A picture of silver margaritas for $45 provided us with ample cocktails for the duration of our meal and were delicious and not “weak”. The tableside guacamole was the best I’ve ever had and I do try it everywhere we go. Perfect texture, spice, quantity for two, and a cooling accompaniment to the chips and spicy salsa! My husband had the chicken chili relleno and I had the seafood fajitas. There was a very large fillet of red snapper, three big scallops, and three shrimp, ample onions, peppers, pico de Gallo, additional guacamole, and pinto beans on the side and for soft tender 4 corn tortillas (they allow a choice of corn or flour). My husband had never tried a relleno before and he loved it and I will tell you this was the most generous and delicious sizzling platter of fajitas I have ever enjoyed. We were full but had to try dessert. I can’t say no to homemade churros anywhere and the dolce de leche dipping sauce was decadent. My husband had the tres leche cake and of course it was moist, delicious and served with a little bit of chocolate sauce. The service was perfectly timed, attentive, and the restaurant couldn’t have been more professional! This is not fast food south western food; this is the real deal!

The food was excellent, but not exceptional for Santa Fe, where there are an abundance of excellent dining options. The restaurant itself is lovely, and the service very good. I suspect, in summer, outdoor dining is a big plus. I would certainly go again.

We went to Gabriel’s for a birthday celebration. It was a busy night, so the last-minute decision to make a reservation via Open Table was a good idea. Our food - crab enchiladas and a shrimp/scallop dish - was fantastic, as was the guacamole prepared table-side. The staff sang to the birthday celebrant & provided a complementary dessert. We’ll definitely come back again!

The food was ok, it's been awhile since we've eaten here. I'm disappointed that for large party that they wouldn't add an avocado or 2, rather then serve every table the 1 and 1/2.

Gabriel's is the best in Northern New Mexico for traditional Mexican food. The staff, food, and cleanliness of the restaurant are superb. The flavor, size of the serving, and the price of the food have always been consistently excellent.
