    New friends at a Taos antique store recommended this great place. Just a short drive from Taos and well worth it. It was a lovely setting...candlelight and quaint,historical atmosphere. The food was very good (I had the filet). The service was excellent. Waiter was attentive and very cordial. The creme brûlée' was awesome to top the evening off. Will definitely go back when I visit Taos!

    If your in the area of Taos during the off season for skiing this a great place to have a wonderful dinner with that special someone. During season it may be a little crowded with the overflow from the ski hill and Texans but try it anyway.

    I can't say enough about the service and food here. The wait staff couldn't be better, they checked to make sure everything was to my satisfaction without making me feel I needed to leave when we were done eating. The food was as was prepared and presented perfectly. Definitely upscale place to go for that special occasion. Its a little pricey, but this place with leave a lasting impression on anyone you take with you.

    Delicious is the only way I can describe this meal. If you are anywhere near Taos the 5 or so mile drive north on the Enchanted Circle is well worth the trip. The oysters were sweet, the bison ribs to die for. The carbonara with homemade bacon, nothing more to be said.

    I ordered a bouillabaisse and found it barely edible. The clams were overcooked and the fish had a bad taste which I had to leave. The broth had too much wine. The Caesar salad was refrigerated and not freshly made. The quality of the food did not match the high prices. I dined with an out of town guest and we were disappointed. Although this is a neighborhood restaurant, I would never dine at Sabrosos again

    Off the beaten Taos path up in Arroyo Seco. Housed in an old hacienda like building giving it a real new Mexican flare. Food while not Michelin Star quality is always consistently good. Always at least two daily specials including one done on their wood fired grill. Moderating priced but more than adequate wine list. Just a very nice comfortable place to dine. Piano player on WEDS nights. Outdoor dining with music during the summer.

    A great find just a few minutes outside of Taos and on the way to Ski Valley. My wife and I enjoyed a great entree of Bouillabaisse next to a roaring fire while listening to live music in the background. Our waiter was very attentive throughout the evening, even as we transitioned to the bar to listen to more live music.

Each course of food was delicious. Everything was cooked to our taste. Would recommend this to any one in the Taos area for a delightful and tasty evening. Can't wait to go back this summer and eat on the wonderful patio area.

    The restaurant was excellent. We walk in and our table was ready, fire place was going very nice atmosphere. The two starter dishes were great. The entre's were excellent. The only complaint would be, for a long dining experience the chairs were terrible. Also the table was unstable. Other than those things, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

  • Christmas Eve at Sabroso
    madjuana
    Dined on 12/24/2013
    Visiting Taos From Denver, this was our first time dining at Sabroso, but made reservations for Christmas Eve because we weren't sure what might be open in town. The atmosphere and charm of the location and the cozy interior were definitely inviting. The wait staff, hostess and bartender were all pleasant, but my sense was the kitchen staff was unprepared for the large groups arriving for the holiday fare: dinner took an hour to arrive and was disappointing, partly because of the wait but in fact the food was less than delicious and festive. I plan on going back for another try in warmer weather because the outdoor seating in the woods looked enchanting, especially with a glass of wine and simple appetizer near at hand.

    From the moment we arrived the full staff was more than accommodating. They made us feel that their entire purpose that evening was to make us happy. And that made us happy. The food was exceptional as always. The plating was enticing and made you feel that you meals were special preparations. Each dish is a subtle combination of stable entrees with local ingredients and seasonings. We have eaten here on every trip we make to Taos and have never been disappointed.

    Looking for that special place to kick start your romantic interlude in Taos. Look no further than Sabroso. A hot roaring fireplace! A beautiful warm and inviting smile and enthusiastic greeting ! Sit in the cozy bar or either is the beautifully decorated dining room, you won't be disappointed. Savor the Mixed grlll, braised Buffalo ribs, or one of their many specials of the day. You won't be disappointed and your wallet won't be deflated. This is a great hide-a-way and a must for anyone who dines in Taos and calls themselves a foodie. Too bad we do not live in Taos, we would eat there more often and bring more friends to hang out at the bar. Thank you Sabroso staff! This was my grilfriend's birthday dinner. It made the weekend very special

    We dined on Sunday (9/29 at 7:00) after their Lobster feast and with the dining room at 40 percent capacity, with water only, waited 1 hour and 15 minutes to be served. The buffalo short ribs were very good as was the Cesar Salad. However, the rib-eye steak was 40% fat and gristle and the rack of lamb (3 chops) had the most fat I have seen on this cut of meat. There were plenty of service people on staff but they were not attentive. There are really no excuses for the quality of the main course such as it was. We are regular Costco and Restaurant Depot shoppers and both cuts of meat purchased at these two purveyors far exceed what we received at Sabroso.

    The food was well prepared, and pear gorgonzola salad was fabulous—but the mussels appetizer had the tiniest mussels I have ever seen. Slightly rubbery from overcooking. The pasta with wild mushrooms had very few mushrooms but flavor of pasta was good and it was only slightly overcooked. Problems mostly came from extremely slow delivery of food from kitchen. Restaurant was full and kitchen clearly slammed--maybe running out of food? Could explain the pasta with two tiny slices of mushroom. Waiter was wonderful and delivered a free cocktail because all food so slow.

    The crab cakes, carpaccio and caesar salad were good but the ribeye was full of fat and grissle (inedible) and the mixed grill was so bad I can't describe it. The snapper special was good but the fruit salsa was too hot to eat. By far the worst meal we've ever had in Taos.
