Wonderful dinner, excellent service and selection.

We were staying at the thunder buffalo resort and this was just one exit down. We loved the atmosphere and food. Service was excellent and prices reasonable for a night out in Santa Fe. Make sure to order the table side guacamole and the green chile stew. We ate here with family, but would make... read more

Gabriel's is pleasant, if you want a nice date night experience you should come here. The servers are nice, the food is great and Gabriel's is a must eat in Santa Fe.

After reading the reviews, we decided that the negative ones were folks who are just hard to please. I don't like to write negative reviews, and I really wanted to prove them wrong, but I have to agree that Gabriel's really wasn't as good as my neighborhood Mexican restaurant. The made-at-the-table guacamole was good, but not outstanding. My tacos al... More

After you're done scratching your head in Santa Fe, head north toward the real New Mexico. Not long after you pass Camel Rock you'll come to the first Cuyamungue exit. On your right you'll see Gabriels logo: a stylized racing wiener dog. Inside you'll find a tasteful decor with some fun art. In winter you can get some darn good... More

Very warm and friendly atmosphere and staff. Food and drinks were memorable, without being heavy. I see why it is talked about as a destination dinner location, it lived up to it!

I have been eating Mexican fare on and off in NM since 1975... the absolute best place I'd tried until this year (40 years later) was The Territorial House, until it burned down. That is until we tried Gabriel's this year.... excellent, fresh, traditional, and decidedly not Tex-Mex.... great, friendly service... we will make this a regular place we stop,... More
