    With this being a higher priced place, you would expect the service to match. Not here. The waiter did not know anything about the food or the chefs specials. He did not know how any of the dishes were prepared and he did not have any wine knowledge and laughed at himself. Maybe this is Edmonton for you, but I have never had this low end service from any other place anywhere in the world. It is not a place I would go back to. Also sent one appetizer back. I think that there are other places that I would rather spend my money on in Edmonton.

    The night started out poor, they ran out of lobster bisque. My wine glass was repeatedly attempted to be filled by numerous staff....it was white wine, which I prefer to drink cold...this called for numerous explanations to various staff members, which ultimately interrupted our evening and became annoying. Our coffees were served warm not hot and arrived well before our dessert. I like to drink an after dinner coffee with dessert! And finally, when asking "how's everything?" the manager placed his hand on my shoulder twice. It's okay to ask but avoid touching someone you don't know...it was creepy!!

    Outstanding place. We had their "Table Platter", which is a 5 course meal, where they bring each course out on a large platter, from which everyone at the table helps themselves. On that day, the courses were tuna carpaccio (melted in your mouth), perfectly grilled shrimp, lobster risotto to die for, a platter of superb sea bass, pickerel and salmon, ending with an assortment of fabulous desserts. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and very attentive. From the moment we entered, where all the staff made eye contact and greeted you, to the time when we left, where they again thanked you and said good night, it was an exceptionally fine experience.

We were looked after by not only our server, but 2 others as well, leaving us quite content with full wine glasses and timely food delivery. This is a restaurant that we will frequent to on a regular basis and will highly recommend to others! Thank you for making our evening wonderful!

    A co-worker suggested Sabor to me, so my boyfriend and I went for our anniversary. The atmosphere is very romantic and the pianist/classical guitar player is awesome. I had the Caesar salad to start and Tagliatelle with prawns and my boyfriend had the piri piri prawns and lobster risotto. Both were incredible and cooked to perfection. We also had an Argentinian wine and the chocolate cayenne mousse for dessert. Our server was also awesome. We never waited long for her to return and check on us or refill our wine glasses. She was friendly and knew a lot about all the menu options.

    Fabulous dining experience with menu choices that take you off the over beaten track, down home goes uptown. Tapas style portions allow for sampling and sharing. The seafood for which the restaurant is known, is cooked to perfection. Service is knowledge and professional. It is wonderful to enjoy live music at dinner and the guitarist who played on Friday night was very talented. Telling everyone and will be back.

    We made an early reservation and were seated quickly. The restaurant filled to capacity by 6:30. Initially, with few guests, service was outstanding. Our server recommended excellent appetizer and meal choices; very tasty. As it became busier, our server (and/or support staff) became scarce. An after dinner coffee was provided and then we were forgotten (water and/or coffee sat empty). 20 minutes later, our server returned offering our bill. I had to ask for a coffee refill. Folks who arrived minutes behind us were only being served their main course as we were leaving. If busy, be prepared for noticeably slow(er) service. Despite that, our overall experience was positive. We look forward to trying some other great menu items.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 9/24/2014
    As always, the food and service were incredible. The ambiance was, at least to start, fantastic. Sadly, a club has moved into the basement space and the noise from that was jarring and caused all of us to comment on it a number of times. There was a harsh difference between the noise from the basement and the music in the restaurant which was grating. This was the second time I had been there and noticed it. Certainly, staff was very apologetic and they also had concerns but all of us agreed that it was annoying enough that none of us will be rushing back to experience that again - which is quite unfortunate because the food and service are excellent.

    Went for my husbands birthday with two friend. Reservation was slightly delayed and the owner brought us 4 glasses of prosecco and apologized for the delay. Great start! The food was amazing, fantastic flavour. We all agreed it was some of the best food we've ever had. The piri piri prawns were the appetizer highlight, and the grilled octopus was the highlight entree. Overall the experience was fantastic. The server was pleasant, friendly, and polite but we felt he could have been more attentive. There were times we waited quite a while without being checked on, and we had to wait a very long time to receive the bill. Overall, we would absolutely recommend Sabor and have plans on being back to try more of the menu.

    Enjoyed a meal at Sabor last night with the wife. Service was the only short coming. Appetizer for me was the CLASSIC LOBSTER BISQUE. it was just ok. and it was served at the same time as our main course! The girl ordered the Vegetable soup. The waiter forgot about it! asked him again 10 min later and he forgot! Then at the end of the meal he asked if she still wanted it /: SEAFOOD PLATTER Everything was a hit except the Calamari.....I have never actually ate rubber before but this is what Id imagine it to be. CHOCOLATE CAYENNE MOUSSE Sweet and hot collide. It was really good. BERRIES & CREAM Delicious. Very nice restaurant. We enjoyed the most food live piano music and atmosphere. Service is a work in progress.That night anyway

    First time at sabor and loved it. Our mussels were huge best we had ever had. Husband had the lobster risotto with halibut. The risotto was delicious. I ate 1/2 of it. Loved the king car but couldn't finish it all. The mini desserts were perfect for someone like me who has a love of sweets but usually can't finish it all.

    This was my second time dining at Sabor and it was as good as the first time . The food and the service in one word, outstanding. Our server ,Amy, is a delightful young lady , knowledgeable and entertaining. I started with the lox and then couldn't decide on and entree so I ordered 2 more appetizers and had the Spicy Calamari and the Lobster Risotto, which turned out to be the perfect amount of food for me and with the Tiramisu for dessert my evening was complete.

    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!!
