Sabor Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
What can I say....perfect in every way. This is the best restaurant in the city and from start to finish was outstanding in every way. Had the seafood paella and it was divine. An explosion of flavors and enough to make a hungry guy satisfied. Jose our server was attentive and like a dining room ninja...the chef came by and after realising it wasn't goerge Clooney had a brief chat with us and made me realise I would rather have him cooking than Clooney any day. Do not go here...I don't want to wrestle you for a table;)
We had a GREAT dinner at Sabor on the weekend. There was a guy playing classic guitar live which added to the amazing ambiance.
If you love seafood, I would say this is by far the BEST seafood restaurant in Edmonton with the greatest selection of different seafood items on the menu.
Highly highly highly recommend !!!
What a gastronomic delights! Everything we had from start to finish was prepared with care and attention. The meat and cheese platter had the perfect variation of choice. The tenderloin was exquisite, almost melting with tenderness. I was near to tears when my plate was clean. Closing my eyes, I could imagine I was sitting on a flagstone patio on a vineyard somewhere in Portugal or Spain. I would recommend to anyone!
Dinner was to celebrate birthday of an out-of-town relative. We share a caesar salad, seafood platter, and three boars dish. A bottle of Spain red wine, plus coffee latte, cappuccino and a glass of port to complete the celebration. Awesome service and I specially like the setting (except it is s little dark). Everything was perfect. Two thumbs up🍷🍷
Overall we really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. We did feel very rushed when it came to placing our order, and even when we ordered our tapas first and said we would
Like to wait to order the rest of the meal our waitress continued to come back and ask for our order. We also wanted to order a wine from the bar at the front of the restaraunt when you walk in, it was advertised on the board and looked appealing. We were told that bar has their own specials and we couldn't have that wine. It didn't seem like the right way to handle the situation, if you are in the same place, owned by the same company if one of your customers wants a glass of wine that's advertised it shouldn't be a question. Overall we enjoyed our experience and would recommend the restaraunt.
We have been to Sabor numerous times, both for family occasions, date nights and business meetings.
The food is always great (never had a disappointing meal), and the service has been equal to the food!
If you are looking for a nice-causal place to enjoy a great meal, Sabor does not disappoint!
I have never left disappointed after a dinner st Sabor. The service and ambiance are always exceptional and the food incredible. We had the 3 course seafood dinner and it was more than enough food. Their signature Piri Piri prawns were delicious! The lobster risotto is always amazing.
Absolutely amazing food. The service was incredible,so attentive. First we had tapas and apps . The piri piri prawns are a must the fried calamari out of this world bht the mussels are mouth watering.
We each had amazing cocktails the green tea and thyme martini is a perfect blend of flavours.
By the the time we finished our apps and tapas our food arrived. The beef tenderlion was cooked to perfection and the lamb rago was so tender and delicious.
But for me was the sudttle birthday celebration they did for my friend. Our waitor offered to take a picture for us and then presented an amazing whipped passion fruit coulis cheesecake. Hands down best cheesecake i ever had. Over all an amazing night and i will be back.
First timing coming to this restaurant and wish we had experienced it sooner! A delicious meal! Very knowledgable and polite waiter!! Service was excellent! We went on a night that there was an Oilers game, so it was quite busy and noisy when we got there, but as people started to leave for the game, the noise level decreased considerably.
Sabor's menu transported me to a trip through Portugal and Spain: succulent seafood, fine fish, charcuterie and cheese, the wine list and the delightful ginjha on the dessert menu. The ample three course meal was beautifully presented and served. I will return to sample the fish soup.
This was the fourth time dining at Sabor. Usually great food, great service and wonderful ambiance. This night was different. Had a dieter with us, who was told by the waiter when she asked to exchange the French fries for more vegetables, that he wasn't sure, because the chef did not like to do substitutions. What?- not really a substitution. Turned out she got her meal as requested but....sheesh. When we asked to have French Fries replaced with mashed on a previous night, the response was 'no problem'.
There was 1 Lobster Risotto, 1 Piri Piri Chicken, and 3 steaks.
3 steaks came out and 5 minutes later the risotto and then the chicken.
1 steak was lukewarm with lukewarm mashed potatoes, and the potatoes with the other 2 dinners were under cooked and cold. A whole roasted tomato was plated as well, although 1 was uneatable as it was hard as a rock inside. Wouldn't they normally be cut in half and roasted with some spices of some sort on it? Totally a waste of space and vegetable on the plate. The only thing that saved the steak dinners were that the steaks were cooked as ordered and the flavor was terrific.
Underwhelming. Thanks to the guitar player we had something to enjoy.
Had dinner here with a couple of friends and were very pleased with our service. One friend had an onion and garlic allergy which I was unaware of when I booked. Considering the fact almost every item on the menu comes into contact or contains onion and/or garlic, the staff were extremely patient and accommodating in helping us have a good evening. Marco and Natascha provided some of the best service we'd all received recently and did so with professionalism and a smile when they easily could have been impatient and annoyed!
