A word from Sabrosa
Sabrosa's kitchen offers guests the opportunity to enjoy recipes rooted in culture and brimming with authentic Mexican flavors. Influenced by Jose's experience growing up on his family’s farm in Guanajuato, Mexico, each dish is prepared with ingredients derived from the organic and sustainable agricultural bounty of Northern California.

From the bar guests can indulge in simple and seasonal cocktails made to compliment Jose's dishes. Sabrosa's bar program is lead by mixology veteran Matt Stanton, and offers a variety of hand crafted cocktails and margaritas, an expansive beer and wine list, and over 24 thoughtfully selected tequilas and mezcals.

Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent Mexican food, the kind you find in better restaurants in major cities of Mexico, with classic mole sauces and ingredients, very well prepared, and very different from the taquerias and average Mexican restaurants you commonly find in the US. The service was very good. However, they packed you tightly at small tables, and at times you bumped elbows with your companions. The acoustics in the room echoed the clamor and chatter of the mostly young clientele. The name of the restaurant, "Sabrosa," a Spanish word meaning "tasty or flavorful," is quite fitting."

  • "We had a tremendous meal here. Robust flavors in the ceviche. The fish entree has a semi spicy tomato sauce that is amazing. We tried the carnitas plate as well, which you roll into home made warm tortillas and apply salsa and pickled veggies. Awesome!"

  • "I went with a few girl friends for Sunday brunch on a lovely afternoon. Great patio and they were able to reserve us a spot outside with no issues, which was great. The food we ordered was hit and miss, and we never received our appitizers. The service was friendly and helpful just a little slow on the bill. I might try this restaurant again in a year or so - or just for drinks, once they have the kinks worked out."

  • "We have gone here twice and have enjoyed it both times. Be prepared for it to be VERY noisy even if it is not full..But the food is awesome. Best margaritas I have had in a while. Fantastic quesidillas and guacamole. Also had a delicious mole short rib thing. Order several things and share. Worth the trip. But don't plan on having an intimate conversation. We could barely hear out waitress it was so loud. But delicious and LIVELY!"

  • "Our party tried 7 different ultra tasty dishes and we loved absolutely everything. Will be back again soon."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Food is great but the noise level is unreal. With the high ceilings and cement floors, when the restaurant gets full, it's nearly impossible to have a conversation with the people you're with."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The noise level is unacceptable for a restaurant. Food needs lots of work. Service was friendly. They took care of a few drinks because they don't offer desserts."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Great house margarita. The seafood ceviche was like nothing I've ever tried before. Very unique and flavorful dishes - a must try if you're looking a a new upscale Mexican spot."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "A very interesting menu with some very tasty items. However, our group was frequently looking for the wait staff. The restaurant was half-empty at the time so it did not seem very crowded or hectic, but it just seemed to take a while to even do things like get the check."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "I love what they have done to this place! The old place "city tavern" doesn't even come close to what they have turned this place into. You can get a well prepared meal, a DELICIOUS cocktail and still not be at a frat party in the marina. It is so conveniently located and the service was great. The interior design is so awesome, the energy is great, personalities of staff are energetic and it helps they are all attractive ;) I love the ambiance of this restaurant and can't wait to bring my family here for brunch!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was good and the service was so so, but the noise level was unbearable! Could hardly hear yourself think, let alone talk to the people at your table. The design looks good to the eye but all of the tile and concrete is not doing any favors to the noise."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "First time really enjoyed the food but the noise level was way too much me."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great good, and very good margaritas. This place badly needs some sound-deadening - it's all flat hard surfaces and full of loud Marina folks..On Saturday night, I basically had to shout loudly across a table for conversation and could still barely hear, and then go home with ringing ears. Will be back for cocktails - doubt I could stand the noise again."

  • "Food was OK. Didnt stand out. Drinks were not as good as I heard they were supposed to be."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had an amazing meal at Sabrosa. You have to try the Tlacoyo. The agua chile ceviche is a bargain at $13. The Pasilla chicken is awesome. Never had better mexican food anywhere. The cocktails ( the spicy Macho Margarita Is a must) are equally impressive and the service was friendly and professional. Great restaurant."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "I had an ok experience here. Everything was fine - the food was interesting, the service was ok (not great) the server was friendly. The ambiance was ok; the lighting is a little off and there are lots of hard surfaces so it was quite noisy and hard to hear everyone. They accommodated our group of six quite comfortably. But they wouldn't seat us until at least four of us showed up, which was not preferable but it was fine. OVerall I had no problems, had an enjoyable time. But in a sea of great options this one doesn't stand out. I probably won't be going back."

  • "We loved the food, the service and the margaritas are some of the best I have tasted. Very different, high end Mexican. We shared a couple of things and were very full. Very friendly waiter and good service. The Tacos were a little weird but everything else we ate was divine! Great chips and guac, fantastic quesidillas. the margaritas do pack a punch so be careful! We will return again soon!"

  • "We had a bachelorette party start with dinner here. Service was great. Atmosphere was awesome. Drinks were strong and food was excellent. Def worth going to."

  • "We will keep coming back for the authentic, organic delicious food of Sabrosa. The service is professional and its a fun place to grab drinks."

  • "From the initial booking to closing out the bill, the customer service was excellent. Hostess and manager onsite were extremely accommodating for SuperBowl Sunday -giving us opportunity to sit directly below the TVs and turning up the volume w/out turning it into sports bar craziness. Bartender was authentic -based on where he was from, his excitement to create and offer unique and spot on margaritas for the group and engagement and excitement for what he specialized in. Love the decor/ambiance/vibe/energy of the place/staff/offering. Excited for Sanbrosa and what it is offering /bringing to the old Marina."

  • "Great drinks and food!!! Finally a grown-up, trendy spot to go without the circus."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "....hopes dashed. Beyond noisy! All hard surfaces so that, even as crowd thinned, the noise level made conversation difficult. Food okay, odd potion sizes, pleasant service but none of us would return."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "Sabrosa has become our favorite restaurant in the city. The fresh organic ingredients and flavors keep us coming back. The tostada with crab, the agua chile rojo ceviche, and the blackened ribeye are all top notch. We enjoyed the micheladas and the macho margaritas. And now some excellent new desserts have been added. Try the flan and chococate cake."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "This place is new, but the kitchen has it going on. Can't wait to return for dinner. We ordered a few apps and the ceviche did not disappoint. The Margaritas are excellent!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The food was excellent. The service was terrific. The decor is very nice. But, the noise level is absolutely unbearable and I was there early in the evening when the restaurant was only about half full. As a result, we will not return for dinner unless we dine outside on the sidewalk which I prefer not to do. I will try it again at lunch time when, hopefully, it is not as noisy. I thought Mamacita, a few blocks away, and Nopa were noisy but this place out does them both."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The menu choices really surprised me! Every single thing we ordered was well-crafted, original and delicious! I definitely recommend Sabrosa for brunch. It is really refreshing to have such a great option for brunch in the marina!"
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Great food and service! A little loud. A lot of little kids running around during a Saturday night dinner, maybe better for a late night meal if you're out on a date or with a group of friends."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "While the food is interesting and reasonably priced, it is not the reason d'être of the place. Music, TVs and high gain bar conversations make hearing your partner across the table from you frustrating."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "We loved the food! Took 13 minutes for our sever to greet us.9 minutes later, we got our drink and apps ordered.Then, she disappeared so we asked the door lady to take our order. Then, she finally came and took or order but she looked like we were a major burden on her by ordering food. We complimented the food and the overpriced drinks. A nice guy came over twice to check on us (I felt like he wanted us to leave). They lack good dessert options.Where's the chocolate???? We left and had a fabulous dessert at Ristobar which had better service on New Year's Day. I won't be back. There are too many great places in SF with better customer service and less $$ drinks. It was way too loud. I couldn't hear my friend seated across from me."
    Dined on 1/1/2014
  • "Even for a 'bar scene' it was particularly loud... you MUST do something about the noise level. Our service was good, as in friendly staff but the timing of everything was, frankly, ridiculous! Food came out in bits and pieces .... 1 app with someone else's entree... while still waiting for a drinks from the bar... 3 had been served waiting for the 4th beverage... Since it took so long for the drinks we ordered the next round when the server finally arrived with that last drink. Eventually all items arrived. (1 or 2 at a time) The food itself was rather tasty, but the rest of the experience took away from that. We were yelling at each other to be heard."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "This has to be the best Mexican restaurant in SF right now. The Caldo (chicken soup) is the best I've ever had. The ribs with mole sauce are beautifully flavored and the chicken entree with red pepper sauce was cooked perfectly, incredible flavors. The cocktails are equally delicious. The Pepino Diablo and Macho Margarita are amazing. Overall, a truly fantastic meal."

  • "Noise level broke all records.. Had to use sign language across a table.. Food just okay.. Service very spotty.. Wouldn't go back. better Mexican food in many other places.."
    Dined on 12/5/2013
  • "Everything was fresh and incredibly flavorful. The ceviche, the soup, the rib eye and the tlacoyo we're cooked to perfection. We agree this is the best Mexican food we have ever had. Service is friendly and professional. We will be back soon."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "I'll start by saying that the service was terrific. From beginning to end that was great! However, the food was bad. I'm not one to complain to wait staff about food quality so I would send my food back. It was what I ordered, it just wasn't good. I could barely cut my quesadilla with a knife. I had picked this spot because it looked cool. And the setting was great, but it was so loud that I couldn't hear the person across the table. I might tell a friend to grab a drink here at the bar, but only if they are with one other person. Not good for groups. Sorry Sabrosa! I had high hopes for you."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "This is not the best location for this style of restaurant. I was hoping for more of a laid back/affordable bar scene. For this type of "fancy" Mexican restaurant, there are far better options down the street in terms of food and ambiance. I guess the margaritas were ok."
    Dined on 12/18/2013
  • "Very good, Very loud. Food tastes fresh. Quesadilla was very good. Drinks very good. Nice spot, just very hard to hear!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "In what dining world, when two guests order a salad, an appetizer and two entrees does the restaurant bring all four plates at once? And when the server sees there isn't enough room on the table for the plate of tortillas, she hands you the plate and walks away like "this isn't my problem"... Overall wait staff was really untrained. It was very loud like eating in a bar. Drinks were good. The menu items read like they will be really good, but they were mediocre at best. (Cactus dish was like mush, carnitas was dry without even being braised properly). I suggest you eat across the street at Takko across the street for better quality food at 1/3 the price and then go to Sabrosa for drinks."
