Diner Reviews
  • "Food and drinks were fantastic. Our server had a huge table and didnt look like she had too much help with them. We waited a little bit to order our drinks and food. Appetizer came out in good time. Main took a little longer but waitress apologized which we understood as she had that large party as well a d we didnt see too much staff helping her. Then after our main we did not see her for a while. Took a while to order dessert and have another glass of wine ordered. We actually only wanted a 6oz for our second glass but got 9oz and charged that. That wasnt too big of a deal as our wines were very good. Overall was a good dinner though. Would go again."

  • "Food and Services is always excellent. I have had business lunches there several times and always found the lunch specials to be great. Everyone at the table was very happy with their food and the level of services. Sometimes at lunch the noise can be a little loud to contact business."

  • "We often go to Sabor Divino for a special occasion. We have the seafood platter which is outstanding and the pasta with prawns and lobster. Everything was wonderful. It was my daughter's birthday and when we have been there before the waiter made a bit more of a fuss, bringing our dessert with a special sparkler or port on the house. This time, the waiter was efficient but provided no special touches. The food was very good and that was the only area that could have been improved. We also enjoy the live music provided."

  • "The food was excellent along with the service. Our waiter was very discreet but watchful at the same time. It was not noisy at all so we could all enjoy ourselves & hear each other's conversation. I would go back again. I thoroughly enjoyed myself."

  • "The food was good, but not spectacular. Huge portion sizes. Good enough though, to give it another chance."

  • "The tomato salad is amazing! I have had the steak and it also fantastic. The service is always top notch and super friendly. I would recommend this restaurant for business meals, special occasions or just a great night out. You will be very happy."

  • "Menu selection was incredible. Basque Tuna Tartar was amazing. Very fresh tasting and packed with flavor. Served with baguettes that had a small crunch to start but melted in your mouth. Halibut and Prawns dish was impressive. A large portion that more than filled me. The white wine cream sauce was just enough to compliment the seafood and was not too heavy. Lamb loin, although not normally a fan of lamb, was the best I have ever had. It was impressively tender and full of flavor. Tenderloin was done perfectly and the crimini mushroom red wine jus paired well. Really complimented the dish. The lobster risotto was recommended to us and it did not disappoint. Loved the live piano player, and the exceptional service. Very professional!"

  • "We would definitely return to try more dishes. Had the shrimp appetizer and the steak and lobster special. Very tasty. Our dining mates had the octopus and loved it! The desserts were heavenly (especially the chocolate mousse and also the mango one)."

  • "I have been to this restaurant for lunch a few times. Food have always been good but not the service. We waited almost 40 mins for our food last time and the restaurant was not even busy. Our server didnt seem to care either. We waited 10 mins for our bill to come. Finally we just stood up, left the cash on the table and walked out. We only have an hr for lunch! Won't be able to go there if service continue to be this slow."

  • "The service isn't as good as other places we have been to but the food was excellent. If you like seafood/fish this is a great find. Piano playing was a nice touch. We will definitely be back."

  • "We ordered the Downtown dining week special. It included the piri piri shirmp and lobster risotto (which had quite a number of pieces of bite sized lobster). I would highly recommend both these. The fish was also good, but next time I would prefer to try the seafood platter for 2. It was also nice that you could get a smaller dessert (they call it a tasting size) at a reduced price. I like to have dessert once in a while but not usually the massive piece you get most times. The service was great, we didn't order any drinks but my water was refilled several times before it got empty. A little bit on the pricey side, I don't mind paying for good quality food, I would have had a glass of wine but prices started at $10/glass."

  • "My hubby and I went here as part of Downtown Dining Week. We had never been before but were pleasantly surprised. The place itself is in the board walk building so the place was dark with a lot of exposed brick...my kind of place. We ordered the shrimp appie and the pimento sauce was so amazing. If you like shrimp, I would highly recommend this dish. For the entree I had the sabor fish and my husband had the chilean sea bass. Both were also very good. If you like risotto, the sea bass came with a lobster risotto that my hubby said was awesome. We will definitely be back."

  • "The restaurant did not have any ambience or any displays that it was a Portuguese resturant. The Edmonton dining week special was not a Portuguese ..tasteless salad with little tomatoe and dressing, the main dinner was risotto with two cubed pieces of chiken, the chicken had no taste. The Risotto was salty.The fish soup had two tiny pieces of fish in it and very spicy..This is not a Portuguese meal. The dessert was cheese cake. We wanted a Portuguese meal and ordered Bacalhau a Portuguese meal, which was on the menu and they said they don't have it because it was too salty.. we were not impressed. It was very loud in there also, and would never come back or recommed this restuarant to anyone. It was very expensive and way OVER priced!!!"

  • "I have been to Sabor Divino four times, and it has been getting less desirable each time. I will not return because neither the service nor the food is worth the cost. After waiting twenty minutes, during which a similar group with a later reservation was seated, Our group of five was placed in an aisle next to the overly loud guitarist. We could not hear each other; we could not hear the waiter when he eventually arrived. The meal began with a superb risotto, but the lobster in the seafood platter was mushy. All five agreed that we would not return because the food was not good value and, more seriously, we simply could not enjoy each other's company in the din created by the music and the crowd."

  • "With exceptional service and a great atmosphere I know I can focus on my lunch meeting rather than the logistic of lunch and to allow for a productive yet enjoyable lunch experience."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The food was very good however the overall price of our dinner was not worth it. $3 for pop refills and $6 for extra peppercorn sauce?!?! The place is way too expense!"

  • "We enjoyed the Downtown Dinner specials , food was delicious, service really good. We had a concert to go to and the server was really great about getting us in and out. Love the atmosphere of this restaurant. The Fish Soup was delicious and the Tiramasu!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "A great restaurant with a pleasant ambiance. The food was very good, I especially loved the Piri Piri Prawns. The Sea Bass and Lobster Risotto were also very good, however i did find the the Sea Bass was slightly over salted, but I have allow tolerance for salt. Service was excellent."

  • "The food was very good, but a bit overpriced, compared to restaurants of similar quality."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We went during dining week and found a gem in Sabor Divino! We tried the bar first - excellent grilled calamari and tapas and the bartender made excellent wine choices. I really enjoyed the live guitar - excellent musician and very appealing in music diversity. We all tried - fabulous piri piri prawns and delicious smoked duck carpaccio. I had the chicken in red wine (with potatoes and grilled vegetables) - it was both tender and flavourful. My friends enjoyed the Steelhead fish with lobster risotto. The food was delightful and complimented by the wine - 2006 Baron de Ley Rioja Reserva, Spain. The staff were prompt and helpful and I would return again for a lovely night out with my husband!"

  • "I hosted a group of 4 for a business lunch and was delighted with this choice. The background noise level was almost non existent so we were able to have a good conversation. Our server was very helpful when we explained one diner had to leave by a certain time and she went above and beyond to make that happen. The food is excellent and the location is good but finding parking close by is a bit of an issue. Fortunately we were able to walk. I will return and highly recommend Sabor Divino for lunch."

  • "We enjoyed the ambience . the dimmed lights ,the background music was fabulous,. and the seating was spaced for conversation privacy. The server (Scott) and service was excellent .Very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine . The service was attentive but not overwhelming. The food was flavorful and the portions very appropiate . We will definitely recommend dinning here to our friends ."

  • "We suspected this must be a fan favorite and when we entered the premises we were not disappointed. The physical layout was what was expected of a top notch diner. Our server was warm, enthusiastic and helpful. We chose the seafood platter for 2. The Caesars salad and fish risotto were excellent. Needless to say the lobster and shrimps in the entree were delicious. The only suggestion would be to include a small side dish of pasta to allow for savoring of the sauce. We are converts."

  • "Being from Newfoundland I am reluctant to order fish in Alberta. But we have finally found our seafood restaurant. Sabor Divino has quality fish and really knows how to prepare it to bring out the best in texture and flavour. We had the sea bass and black cod and enjoyed both. Nice wine list and beer selection. This was our second visit in 2014. We will be back often!"

  • "Recently ate here for our anniversary and was pleasantly surprised as always. The service was impeccable, and the food was top shelf. The owner talks to nearly all the guests, making everyone feel welcome. The ambiance is especially suited for romantic occasions, with a pianist performing in the center of the restaurant. If you're lucky, you may even get to experience a song by the owner, who used to sing on Broadway. Would highly recommend Sabor Divino."

  • "It is a regular spot for my husband and I. We've been going since it has opened and never been disappointed. I regularly take corporate clients/partners & staff there. A real gem! And almost always has some live music - great ambiance."

  • "Great atmosphere, great service, awesome food but the only negative comment that I have is that I had given a special instruction to say happy birthday to my girlfriend upon arrival and it wasn't said once that night ....That was one of the reasons why I chose this restaurant and it wasn't delivered. That is why I can not give you guys a 5 star review."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "If you are looking for a classy venue to impress your friends or your significant other then Sabor Divino is the place to go. The cuisine is European leaning towards Portuguese with an outstanding selection of dishes and wines to choose from. Our Waiter as young as he was gave excellent service and you could tell he has been schooled to the proper ettiquete that a restaurant of this class should provide. Be warned that you could be looking at +/- $100 per head with wine, but with the food and service that excellent to me it was worth it."

  • "Great night out. Cocktails and wine selection were wonderful. Wish the food had been better for the price. Had the Algarve Fish Soup (delicious) and Tuna Tartare (standard) to start. Sea Bass & Lobster Risotto (a lot! Of shell in Risotto) and the Three Boars (unmemorable) Entrees. Will go back, Hoping if was an off night in the kitchen. Server, Pamela, was great!"

  • "Had a reservation for 8:30pm. Got to the restaurant at 8:15pm and our table wasn't ready...was seated in lounge which was fine as we were early. Issue is we didn't get seated until 9:00pm. Not well run at the front end. Once we were seated things went well...excellent food."

  • "Sabo Divino is a great restaurant, one of the best in Edmonton. They have a very nice atmosphere and the live piano music really set a nice mood. The food was very good, had the seafood platter, and it probably is the best (?only) one in Edmonton. Good wine and good service. Highly recommend for a romantic evening, special occasion, seafood lover."

  • "Pretty good. We had a server that didn't really know what was happening on the menu so our charcuterie to this day remains a mystery...he literally put the plate down and told us he didn't know what was on it. Strange...but the selection was delicious. The lobster bisque was tasty but the real star of the show was the Chilean Sea Bass. I can see why they are famous for it, it was incredible. My hubs is not really a big fish fan and he was totally blown away. Ambience is loud and vibrant, fun for a girls night or a couples dinner but I didn't really feel a romantic vibe."
