Devin, I'm one of those that likes Gabriels, or used to anyway. Their Guacamole Especial is really good. However, I was treated poorly by one of their waitstaff, and I am one to bear grudges once that happens. Same reason I don't go to other Santa Fe restaurants that are absent from my list. They have good food, but I was mistreated there and hence they do not appear.

That's two of us with the same grudge against Gabriels -- except that my wife and I were treated with deliberate rudeness. And my wife speaks Spanish and understood exactly what was being said -- the host was making fun of us -- loudly for all to hear. Even I, with abysmal Spanish, got the drift.

I am never going back.

Gabriel's is only worth going to for the guacamole anyway. Never thought the food was outstanding. My son wouldn't eat guacamole before going there--he's loved it ever since. All in the presentation. They should be treating locals better--tourism is down. Remember the place in Lamy? I took my kids out there one time and walked in to an empty restaurant and bar and was told they didn't have room for us! When I asked ahhh....what's with all the empty tables...they replied the train was bringing people down. I asked if we could sit at the bar and they said no. I never went back and it wasn't long before they closed. I heard they sold that marvelous wooden bar.

Although I like favorite local places and good cheap eats as much as the next person, when I'm in SF I always make a special trip or two to my favorite Santa Fe restaurant on Washington Avenue - Santacafe. Dining alone? They have a bar that's conducive to solo dining. You're welcome.

Hi Ria:

Our realtors when we bought our house were in the building next to Santa Cafe .. and they told us what a wonderful restaurant it is...and how popular with locals and visitors.

Lucky you. I can only dream of living in that location. p.s. the native music performers who sometimes play at the farmers market in railroad area are wonderful! I tell friends of friends visiting for first time to try to catch that bit of NM/SF local color.

You had the same firm we did. Our agent also took us there.

They didn't take us to Santa Safe, because we only met them there at the office one time.

At other times, they took us to Harry's Roadhouse for breakfast (awesome!) and to Rio Chama just last week to celebrate our move.

So Santa Cafe is still on our list.
