Sabor Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Dinner out with the whole family, and it was amazing. The servers were friendly and quick without being pushy or rude. Menu had something for everyone. Definitely try some of the charcuterie! It was our first visit, but it won't be our last.

Had a great evening. We had a reservation and when we arrived, we were seated immediately. The tables are far enough apart that you can enjoy your conversation. The noise level did not seem to get too loud. The service was great and when the waiter was asked about certain dishes he was very knowledgeable and helpful. The food was great. The quality and quantity was just right. Nothing seemed rushed, a very relaxing evening with a beautiful woman. It was perfect. I would highly recommend SABOR and take friends there for a night out. I will definitely be back.

Spending the evening here with friends for dinner and drinks was fabulous. The food was delicious, the ambiance was energetic without being too loud so that we could carry on a conversation. Our server was very good without hovering. Overall, it was a great evening.

Sabor is now my new favourite restaurant! Everything about it is fantastic! From my virgin Caesar drink to my coffee, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Such exquisite food; I can't stop raving about it! And I've told a lot of people about it already. Too delicious for words...

This place is great! The ambiance is warm and elegant. Every dish in our party of eight was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed. The wine selection and quality are superb. The place was packed, and with that our service slowed, but was still pleasant. Will definitely go again, and again.

Great restaurant. Fantastic food. Did not appreciate the table next to us with one gentleman and two female escorts . The girls were Very innapropriate and made the dinner uncomfortable. Not something I needed to see while having dinner with family.

This was our first time at Sabor and decided to go there because of all the good reviews. They did not disappoint at all. Service was impeccable. Everyone who helped us was superb. Food was delicious and fresh! Steak was so tender it melted in my mouth. The dinner & drinks menu had a great selection. Went to celebrate our anniversary and they gave us complimentary dessert! It was a hip yet mellow ambiance. Love the industrial decor. The environment was all around inviting and I will definitely go back to try more of their delectable cuisine. I thought we got a lot for the price we paid. It was excellent value and we were super full by dessert time. I'll recommend Sabor to everyone!

Outstanding in every way. We had an excellent waitress. We were three couples and were able to have a wonderful meal and great conversation. The bartender was excellent and knew how to make a gin gimlet. They had a good wine, beer and cocktail list. The menu is large and includes tapas. They also have a 3 course shared meal that is $55 per person and well worth the price. It included 2 appetizers, 2 main courses and their lobster risotto and three sample size desserts. This family style menu requires 2 or more people and the menu changes. The piri piri prawns and chicken were excellent. The seafood paella was FANTASTIC. The beef tenderloin was perfectly cooked. It is nice that your vegetables, potatoes or rice etc are included. The cheesecake with the Passion fruit coulis was delicious. The menu is varied and includes vegetarian options. They had no problems with addressing any dietary restrictions. We will all return.

Went for lunch with my grandmother. I've been to Sabor before and came away with good experiences in the past, so the following comments should perhaps be viewed in the light of a particularly busy time in the lead up to the Christmas holidays.
The restaurant was noisy, the chicken in the paella was on the dry side. The service was friendly but inattentive.
As an aside, I find the tables to be very deep (bigger distance between people sitting across from each other), making conversation especially difficult when it's busy. Leaning in to talk doesn't accomplish much with these tables, i.e. I can imagine this doesn't encourage romantic tete-a-tetes if you're there with a date.
I will probably go back, but just to enjoy their nice tapas space at the front.

Menu is a bit on the pricier side, but the quality of the food and service reflects that. The food tasted excellent and was served in large enough proportions to be filling. The servers were great at checking in periodically but not too much and were very knowledgeable about the menu.

Our family of 4 all thought the dining experience was well worth the money. Grilled calamari, chicken and fish was fantastic. The pasta was a little on the heavy side due to the cream sauce. All in all we enjoyed the evening and plan to be back.

Food took over 40 minutes to arrive and came a little cold. The mussels had a very fishy taste. The chicken Paella contained chunks of cartilage and bone and clearly wasn't chicken breast.
The tables are so large that you essentially had to yell 3 feet across the table to the other person in order to have a conversation.
Overall, pretty disappointed considering the rave reviews this place had.
Will take my $120 for two people elsewhere.

Food was fantastic! I ordered the seafood platter and the chef knows how to cook and season each item perfectly. Thought the price was kind of high but then again, it is seafood. Besides, it was a birthday meal so I was treated to dinner and it was definitely the best seafood meal I ever had. Loved the calamari-perfectly seasoned with just the right bite. Lobster was done perfect, in fact, I only have positive things to say about the entire evening. Food was fabulous, enjoyed the atmosphere (my group of 6 was situated into a corner which I really appreciated) and the service was outstanding. Our server, Shannon, was attentive and courteous. Great experience overall. Highly recommend Sabor. Just one note, portions are decent but not huge so do not expect to come away stuffed.

This would across the board be 5 stars except two of us got food poisoning from the paella. When I mentioned this, the response I got basically told me to go to the hospital. No sorry.
Kind of wrecked the experience however will be back as it was just management had ruined it. The food still tastes great and the service was impeccable.

We were seated and the waitress brought wine to our table and poured our first glass and last all night as the rest was up to us. The bread was brought to our table and no side plates, we ordered the prawn and calamari appy to start and lobster Bisque soup. After a long wait our soup came, I asked about our shrimp and she forgot to place the order. The lobster Bisque was great. We poured our own wine and another waiter noticed we were neglected so he came and got the empty soup bowls and gave us side plates. I ordered the sea bass- veggies were over cooked and soggy and the baby potatoes were undercooked and crunchy in the middle and it was the most bland meal I have ever tried. My wife ordered the Sablefish with Lobster risotto and it was fantastic. The waitress was horrible at best. The bald waiter with glasses who helped her out was a seasoned waiter who was able to recognize a neglected table and jump into action to cover for his co worker. Thanks to him I didn't have to get up and return my own plates to the kitchen, overall experience was Meh.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and the seafood, although perhaps a little overpriced. Our server was very good and friendly however the service was overall slow. We were ready to order yet spent over 2 hours there. Might have just been an overly busy night though. Would recommend for a nice dinner out :)

With a group of 7 women who have never been here before, all left saying they would come back in a heart beat. The food was outstanding, the service was timely and the table was in the perfect location to hold a conversation with the entire group.
