Description: Gabriel’s, serving food of the Southwest and Old Mexico — renowned in New Mexico — is considered one of the best restaurants in America by Zagat. The personal attention to service and food is what makes Gabriel’s special: a place where little touches enhance your whole dining experience. Guacamole made tableside. Freshly squeezed lime margaritas made with gold tequila. Handmade corn tortillas. An authentic mix of modern and classic Mexican and Southwestern dishes and seasonal specials.

We always have table-side guacamole. It is delicious and the chips are always fresh. The food is always good as is the service. Perfect Patron margaritas. We were there for a birthday dinner last night and all was good.

From the start, guacamole is prepared to your liking at table side and most delicious. The food was excellent as we were entertaining friends from Kansas and they left wanting to return.

Gabriel's is well known for their table side homemade guacamole, and it is good, as long as everyone at the table has the same taste and heat tolerance. Otherwise, order multiple plates. The Northern New Mexican food is average and nothing to go out of your way for.

Went to Gabriel's prior to the opera after hearing great things. Not sure if I've ever had a more disappointing experience. Everything was off from the beginning when we were seated in a secluded area away from other diners (despite having made reservations). The service was completely uninspiring and the food that came with it was the same. After eating a very bland and meh prepared guacamole dish by someone who acted as if he would rather have been anywhere else, we went on to the entree, Rellenos de Santa Fe, which the menu said were roasted but were encased in batter like you find in most restaurants. The food was AT BEST lukewarm (that's being generous) and not particularly flavorful. I also ordered a Spinach Salad which for some reason never came, which was in line for our entirely unsatisfactory experience. Oh well, we got of there as fast as we could and as such, made it to the Opera in plenty of time.

If you cannot find a dinner reservation in central Santa Fe, try Gabriel's! It is a large restaurant, and the tourists haven't found it yet! The Chile Relleno with Mesquite Grilled Chicken is very tasty, and the other three people in our group also enjoyed their entrees. For dessert, try the Cajeta de Pinon Sundae -- UNBELIEVABLE!
