Sabor Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Every single aspect of our meal was amazing, from the tapas appetizers to main dishes to dessert. We were all so stuffed after the main course, we could hardly imagine eating any more but had to try some dessert since everything else was so good. we were not disappointed!
Tapas portions were plentiful and tasty (had octopus and sardines). Excellent bread. Soup was just OK. Tapas were so filling... I didn't order an entrée... but several looked good on the menu. Will go again with others so I can have both (just a portion) of the tapas and order an entrée!
We had to sit at broken table for two, tried to move once and then had A/C blowing down or neck. Server told us we had no other option! After our meal we mentioned it to front waiter and he told us we could have moved to a different area. We love the food there and will go back but will not accept that kind of seating again. We have been there many times do to the food quality and my gluten allergy.
Having previously been to Sabor I must admit we were underwhelmed this time.
The food was just adequate. The waiter was attentive enough. But the food service was incredibly slow to the point we almost left before receiving our entrees. At one point we looked around the restaurant and nobody had food in front of them. We will probably try it again but not any time soon.
mid to high-end atmosphere and knowledgeable staff. We arrived a little ahead of the dinner rush and had excellent service. Food was delicious, no salt and pepper on the table for a reason! Will go as often as I can justify a pricey (but worth it) night out. Fish is prepared perfectly.
This was my first time here. It was a little expensive but for a special occasion – it's worth it. If you like prawns, the Piri Piri prawns are outstanding. I would go back just for those and some wine! Lol.
Service was excellent and our waitress was very knowledgable about the menu.
I ordered the sablefish and it was delicious. My boyfriend had the three boars and was raving about how good it was for the entire meal. I highly recommend this place and I am definitely planning to go back!
I made a reservation for a 5th anniversary dinner and the staff gave me recommendations for local flower shops. They got the flowers on the table in time for dinner and made a customized dessert plate just for us. The staff were extremely friendly and made for a great surprise. The seafood plate food was some of the best I've had. I will definitely be back in the future.
We had the seafood platter. The lobster and the shrimp were good. The calamari were not good. The crab risotto was under cooked and really had no flavour. The server asked how it was 2 bites in so kinda hard to give our opinion and then never asked us again. In fact another server noticed that we were done before our server cleared our plates. For the price I didn't feel it had good value. Sorry.
Food was fantastic and tasted great. I suggest anyone who has some extra cash to go eat over there. Seemed liked a very popular restaurant when I went there. It was almost all full. The food came surprisingly quick. The only thing is the price, it's pretty expensive but worth the price.
I have been here twice in the past thirty days because my mother loved the beef tenderloin and my father enjoyed the sablefish. I personally ordered the sablefish and the chilean sea bass and both are highly recommended if you like fresh fish. Service is very prompt. At one of the visits, the table we were first given was so close to the door that we felt quite a draft. We requested a change of tables and was immediately ushered to another table in the warmer interior half of the restaurant. Unfortunately, no outdoor food is permitted and my mother's birthday cake had to be cut at home.
Couple odd things:
walking to our table the owner/mgr cut me right off. That was odd
waiter said they could'n't hand out any complimentary bread till all guests were at table
Very loud during rush hour times.
Steak was superb. Fish good. Shrimp amazing.
I suspect a leadership issue...
Worth going. Just pare down expectations and be flexible.
One of THE best restaurants I've been to in Edmonton for quite some time. All of the staff that served us were friendly, polite, knowledgeable, and courteous. The food was simply fantastic! We opted for the Family Style option. It was a whole lot of delicious food. From the scallops, prawns, sea bass, halibut, lobster risotto all the way through to the five dessert samples - it was perfect! Oh, and the Sangria, can't forget that - REALLY good! We'll be back.
My girlfriend and I were delighted by both the food and the service. Everything was perfectly cooked and our server was helpful with the little things, like picking a wine pairing, and the big things, like making sure the kitchen didn't kill me via allergen exposure. It was a very romantic evening, and I was delighted that our server treated us like a dating couple. It was an amazing way to end our date. Sabor is awesome and I think everyone should go there at least once
We had a total of 10 adults get together to celebrate a special birthday. The restaurant was very busy on a Saturday night, but the staff worked hard to keep up. A small error by our waiter caused a couple of people to wait for their dinners when the rest of us had been served, but other than that, the night worked out really well. We would certainly recommend this restaurant to others.
Sabor was awesome as always.....it was very busy when we arrived but we were seated right away. Service was attentive all evening and food was presented in a timely fashion, as we requested. The food is always well prepared, beautifully presented and never disappoints. We love the atmosphere/environment in the room. It is elegant but warm. We will return to this wonderful restaurant as often as we can.....
SABOR restaurant position itself as a luxury place, but in real - just very high prices. Unreasonably high. Appearance is slightly better than diners. Food quality is medium close to diners level. Service quality the same.
363 dollars for two beers, glass of wine, 1 plate for 4 person with 8 scallops in cucumber puddle, 1 plate for 4 person with few steamed shrimps with mixed green leaves and sause on the plate. 1 plate for 4 person with some kind of gruel with super-super tiny pieces of lobster and topped with 8 pieces of fish from NO FRILLS or SUPERSTORE.
There is no super FANCY & STYLISH delicious food. In general, SABOR worse than KEG steak house, Earls, LUX, etc. But more expensive.
Strongly do not recommend
We came to Sabor for my 54th birthday. I have to say that the service was exceptional. The food was amazing and as we were on a bit of a schedule the wait staff was able to accommodate us and the meal flowed beautifully without feeling rushed. I will be going back in the next couple of weeks I hope. I have also recommended this restaurant to all my friends for any kind of a special intimate occasion.
