Sabrosa Ratings and Reviews
The music and drunk crowd were so loud, we had to yell to each other across a 4-person table to be heard. The guacamole portion is tiny and is full of cucumbers, which is odd and not on the menu. The food is decent, but not anything amazing - not worth dealing with that environment.
Made a reservation at Sabrosa for Cinco De Mayo. Upon arrival the entire restaurant had been turned into a bar with very loud music and dancing in the middle. There were a few dinner tables pushed to the sides that were reserved. One of these tables was ours (right next to a loud speaker). This made for a terrible experience of having to yell across the dinner table to friends, feeling rushed, and being ran into by drunk people dancing. It would have been nice to know when calling to make the reservation that they had plans to turn the restaurant into a full on bar/dance party by 745pm. I would have never gone there had I known.
We have dined here before and had a delicious dinner. This time however the food was slow to arrive, not very tasty and the service was sporadic. We were a party of six so the gratuity was automatically added to the bill. Maybe that is why the server didn't feel the need to be attentive to us.
I think they are more intere$ted with the cocktail crowd than the dinners. :-(
The cocktails were good and the food was okay but service ruined the experience for us. My friend ordered a gin martini and ended up with vodka. We ordered guac as an app, which never showed up. And when my fajitas came, I got a side dish of rice and beans dumped all over me. And throughout this whole process our server was super inattentive and we had to ask at the end he comp a couple things because of everything that happened.
We were very disappointed given open table ratings. While our server was super nice and friendly, the food just wasn't very good. The steak tacos were just plain bad. This is more a bar that serves food, evidenced by the huge tv that towers over all the seating.
At least they have a happy hour menu though dinner for 4 was still $100 including 1 beer. It didn't help that guac and chips was $11.
The food we were able to get was great, but I was looking forward to several dishes from the menu on their website. I wad told every dish I wanted was from LAST season. IF they're a seasonal restaurant they should update their website menu when seasonal menu changes.
We had high hopes for this place given the reviews but the veggie food we ordered was very ordinary and that's being generous. The service was good and the drinks were good but lack of complementary chips and salsa at a.restaurant in.this price range is unexpected. We did order chips and guacamole but nothing to write home about. The only saving grace was a well made house margarita and friendly service. We won't be repeating when there are so many better options.available.
I made a reservation for Friday afternoon at 1 PM for a graduation lunch for a large group of 14 people. I even spoke to a restaurant hostess about the reservation but at no time did anyone tell me that Sabrosa doesn't even open until 3 PM on Fridays!!! We arrived as a huge group to closed doors and had to improvise a new option.
Sabrosa definitely dropped the ball on that, they should keep their reservation info AND employees better informed!! Very disappointed.
Overall good experience. We walked into the restaurant with a big party and a reservation at 8:30PM. Our table was set and ready. However, the music inside was SO loud. For reference, I am 28 years old... and it was way too loud even for me! We asked if they could turn it down, and they said they could not. Rubbed us the wrong way BUT they set up a beautiful table for us outside and we really enjoyed the dinner.
This particular Sunday, it was not a good place to bring kids. There was a DJ and the noise level was deafening. I had even called ahead asking if they had a childrens' menu. I could have used a warning.
Otherwise, I've been here on several other occasions and it's always been a relaxed, comfortable environment. The food is satisfying although on the pricey end. My son was disappointed that we had to purchase chips and salsa for $6.
I will be back - great location, good food, (typically) relaxing environment and friendly staff.
Sabrosa was fine. There was nothing exceptional there and I had expected more out of the experience. The one real detractor was the club music blaring. Okay, this is Sunday brunch, it might be 11:00am, but people are still waking up and don't want to feel like they're trapped in a club. The service was definitely the high point and I have no complaints there.
And when I say "lazy" I'm referring to the service, which was lackluster. The omelet de queso was perfectly nice, with chile verde salsa whisked in with the egg mixture. The trouble was the distracted servers, plagued with the ennui that comes from tumbling out of a bed to wait on mere mortals on a quiet Sunday morning. As is typical in the area, the cocktail list was long but reasonably priced.
First of all, my margarita and my friends' drinks were delicious. However, I ordered the pollo and chorizo tacos and was not impressed. I can handle somewhat spicy foods and I order chorizo often...but these tacos were so spicy! I couldn't even finish my meal. The atmosphere was cute and we were seated on time for our reservation.
We must have been there the wrong day and time. What we read about at Thrill SF website was not at all what we experienced. It was dead, the food was super mediocre and the service spotty. Had to ask for things over and over again.
Unimpressive in a city full of great places!
I was extremely disappointed with Sabrosa. We went there for a bachelorette party looking for a fun environment with good food. Unfortunately, we did not get any of that, the service was terrible, the food was bland and we could not hear one another over the extremely loud music. Our waiter was more concerned with chatting with the people at the table next to us, then actually serving us. We had to constantly ask for water and forgotten orders. The food was also disappointing, a few of the girls ordered salads that did not come with ingredients listed on the menu and the tacos were bland. Overall disappointing experience.
I came here on a Sunday night with some family and friends. We sat around the bar and had some delicious drinks and food! I LOVED the spicy margarita as well as the tacos dorados (The rolled tacos on the app menu). The staff was friendly and the bartender was super attentive (not to mention attractive). I can't wait to go back for the brunch, I've heard it was fantastic!
We arrived at Sabrosa at 7:15 PM for a nice quiet dinner after a memorial. We were met with a crazy loud something disco scene with sports on all TVs. Not a single table set for dinner. Hostess nowhere to be seen in the noise level was off the charts. I called the manager over and explain they should've called us to let us know it was not a restaurant but a blaring disco. Extremely disappointed
There was a large group for my birthday, 9 people. We went for brunch on a Sunday and the music was so loud we could only hear the person right next to you. We asked at least 4 times if they could turn it down a notch and was told they couldn't, they did, let me check, yet nothing changed. I'm all for a lively fun environment but it was absurd. The server was less than helpful and the food was subpar. It was really disappointing as I like the spot and I chose it and brought a large group.
Just don't get the negative reviews of Sabrosa. From service, to food, to drinks, can't say enough good things.
First, we hit them with a last minute request for a party of 12. No problem. They have a massive wooden table perfect for a large group. While it was a quiet Monday night, we were easily accommodated.
Service, absolutely no evidence of inattentive service noted in a couple of reviews. Our servers were on their A game. Funny, pleasant and attentive.
Food was great. We had a lot of experienced palates at the table and they all raved about the food. Great fresh guacamole. I think 90% of us had one form of taco or another. They look small but they were actually the perfect serving size. Perfectly prepared and delicious.
Drinks. What is not to like about a great beer selection and individually made margaritas. No blenders and margarita mix here. Each one hand shaken. Loved by all.
Desserts. How good could a churro be, right? Well if there is Churro Nirvana, Sabrosa is the place. Fresh, warm, soft and chewy cinnamon goodness...with ice cream.
If you are in he Marina District and want a really good fix of authentic Mexican...give Sabrosa a shot.
