Italian | Walnut Creek, East Bay

We ordered two specials of the day - a 'white' pizza and a small squid ink pasta with calamari and shrimp. Both dishes were just excellent! We are long time fans of this restaurant's food, and we had a fabulous meal. Please note that the pizzas are not what you would typically find at a pizza place. They are much better - the crust is thin and the toppings are special. Favoloso!! More

We had a Family Dinner there with 14 people. We had made reservations and they were ready for us when we arrived. We had three young children and everyone was well taken care of by Velma. Excellent service with a fabulous and thoughtful server. I have personally worked in the hospitality industry for ten years and haven't seen this kind of service in a long long time. Thank You Velma!

American | Walnut Creek, East Bay

We had dinner here to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. It was a party of 12 and we arrived early. The venue was gracious enough to accommodate us early. We ordered drinks (fountain drinks, cocktails and a bottle of wine). We ordered appetizers and entree’s. My favorite was the walnut crusted brie but the calamari and artichoke spinach dip were also great - we ate it all! Their steaks were delicious. Baby back ribs were tender, chicken was well seasoned and the sandwiches were tasty. Nothing disappointed. We had dessert - cheesecake (huge portion), creme brûlée and chocolate cookie w/ vanilla ice cream. The cheesecake was awesome! The best part was the service...our server was attentive and I was especially impressed with Hope great he was worth the two children in our party - most don’t take the time to make them feel special. There’s an automatic 18% gratuity on parties greater than 8 - I tipped more than that because he deserved it. We’re definitely coming back. More

Latin American | Walnut Creek, East Bay

This place is great for Hispanic comfort cuisine, with ample portions and a wide variety of interesting and creative takes on well-known dishes. I particularly liked their beef empanadas, as well as the Lomo Saltado. This second dish was easily more than enough for two people to share, which I did to the satisfaction of my lovely wife. We topped off our meal with a dessert selection of their very excellent cookie creation, Alfajores. This was my first experience with Sabores del Sur, and I very much intend to make a repeat visit.

If I could review solely based on service, this would be 10 stars. Girlfriends birthday dinner was made special by the employees at tomatina. I can’t thank them enough for their help setting up and surprising her when dessert came out. Food was cool not amazing though. I will definitely be back solely based on service for sure. More
