    We really enjoyed our time. I love the seafood theme. What a great idea to support your country with a big feast like you might have at home, here in Canada, I like that a lot. The portions were excellent and now have this restaurant on our list of a great place to go. My husband and I had been before for an event in one of the large rooms awhile ago and noted the great food. I had also been with a couple of my children later in the evening for dinner awhile back and enjoyed the atmosphere with the younger crowd. We will plan an evening again soon, thank you for the wonderful time and excellent food! And you have Crabbies ginger Beer, excellent!!

    We recently went here for dinner and the food was great but the pitchers of sangria were filled with ice and at 32.00 a pitcher its not really worth it. There are other great places to eat where you get better service and food without the expensive bill. Dessert was like 2 forks fulls big...

    In a word....outstanding! The ambiance is second to none thanks in no small part to the restaurant's elegant decor, lighting and of course piano player. Couple this with delicious food and excellent service and it is evident Sabor has a winning formula down to a tee! Our first visit and we were so impressed Sabor has just gained itself two new regulars! Already looking forward to our next visit!

    Unfortunately this restaurant was very disappointing except for the gentleman that greeted us at the door. It started with our waiter being not very friendly to the point of being rude. We had just got back from a vacation in Seattle and had great seafood and was anxious to go out for more seafood. We had never heard of this restaurant but went on the basis of Open Table's review. We ordered mussels and calamari of which both were uneatable and in fact so much so, that we mentioned it to the waiter and he was gracious enough to not charge us for the mussels. This restaurant was not cheap and to still pay $100 for food that was not eatable, like I said very disappointing.

    I'm a food snob and rarely feel compelled to write reviews, but the meal I had at Sabor Divino was by far the best meal I've had in Edmonton, and top 3 or 5 of my life (and I spent years living/eating my way through NYC and Vegas). We were there on the 3rd night of their seafood festival, which meant the regular menu was replaced my a seafood-focused one. (Yet it still included a "landfood" section.) The seafood platter was simply out of this world, and worth every penny: huge shrimp and scallops, both cooked to tender perfection; lobster in a divine garlic butter sauce; calmari, clams, mussels, and OMG the broth at the base of it all! YUM. The fabled eggplant appetizer did not disappoint. Sangria was great. Service was genuine and relaxed.

    The food was outstanding!! We love the "Bacalua" (hope I spelled that right). Please don't take that dish off your menu. It is sumptuous, and it is one of the reasons my wife and I return to this restaurant!! Our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive, the atmosphere is delightful, and the décor is great.
