Sabore - Tioga Ratings and Reviews
Very disappointed in our experience there. Very overpriced. Small servings for huge prices. One entree was not editable, but staff did not offer a replacement. Would to recommend to anyone. Had to go to another restaurant afterwards to have dinner after ordering tapas, salad, and entree at Sabore.
The staff was friendly and welcoming, the dining environment was perfect, with subdued lighting, and soft conversations, luxurious booth. The food was as beautiful as the photos in the menu depict: each entree is a work of art. Each dish was perfectly plated. Starting with the 5 worldly cheeses charcuterie, (I loved the soft blue.) the dining experience was exceptional. Lots of clever, delicious ideas, beet (not beef) carpaccio with large caper berries. Each bite was a delicate adventure for the palate.
Finally, the Nitro S’mores Experience, prepared table side by the chef,
was the highlight of the gastronomic experience. The presentation was beautiful, and definitely a “remember-for-the-rest-of-your-life experience”.
Poor service, pricey but lousy entrees. Waited for our cocktails for 15 minutes had to catch our waitress to get her to bring them. Wife ordered the lobster ravioli. There were exactly 7 so $5 a piece. Not much if any lobster.
I ordered the duck. The breast was so tough that I left half on my plate.
Waitress never stopped to enquire about our entree. Just showed up to see if we wanted dessert. Not a single question if we would like coffee.
The only good thing at our anniversary dinner was the calamari.
A very unsatisfactory evening for $110.
Saboree has a wonderful feel. It's in a delightful location. Our waiter was knowledgable and solicitous of our needs. The chicken and lobster was a bit less tasty than it sounded, but the caesar salad was outstanding. Beet appetizer was especially good and was impressive in its presentation. All in all, a good experience.
There are some minor details, that they need to fix, for example they charge 2$ for extra bread when you are consuming 200$ on your table, it is a very bad marketing estrategy, it wont hurt to give an extra piece of bread, when you have a tables expending a good ticket. They have a good chart of wines, but we choose one and when the wine came to the table was a different it would be better to let you know before bring it to the table, is no a big deal they should fix it because is a very nice restaurant
We had flank steak and lobster ravioli. Flank steak was the best. Carolina Rice Grits were the best of the sides. The atmosphere and service were A+. The food was good, but a bit pricey to be good vs. amazing. The old tapas menu was more appealing to me. The drink menu was really good. Hard to choose... A friend in our group doesn't eat seafood or beef. The only chicken dish had a seafood sauce and the only other poultry dish was duck. She ended up with a salad as her entree. I would definitely go back- I wanted to try a couple of other entrees. I love the iPad menu where you can see the dish in a photo before you order.
I was there with three of my friends for a birthday get together. The service stuff were friendly and helpful. All of our dishes were delicious: Tuna Toston, (tender) Thai Fried Calamari, Red Curry Mahi-Mahi-Mahi, Scallops a la Catlana and Duck Breast (a little tough). We didn't have a room for desserts, but they looked good. I would recommend this restaurant for a special dinner out or nice get together with friends.
Service was poor, took a very long time for drinks and food. Waitress was rarely seen, had to ask another waitress to find her so we could order another drink. Wouldn't recommend the food as it was average. Lobster ravioli was a weird combination of flavors when the lemon foam.
We loved our experience. When they did not have the root beer for my favorite drink Ashley found a liquer to float on top and it made my drink delicious. The drinks and food were served in a timely manner and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. The Nitro Experience dessert with the liquid nitrogen made the chocolate samores very special. It was fun blowing smoke from our mouth and nose. Thank you Ashley for taking pictures for us!
We have been here multiple times with only one mediocre food experience and only one mediocre service experience, service being the most recent poor experience.Their bartenders are some of the best, with specialty and classic cocktails close to perfection. Some main courses are short on quantity, but by the time you get through some of the fantastic appetizers, you may wish you had not ordered more food. Service was not bad, per de but sitting for ten minutes before food order is taken and at least that to get tab after all utensils are appropriately placed on your plates is too long. First and last occurrences are after all the most remembered.
I normally love every experience at sabore; in fact I've never been disappointed until this last visit . Took my parents who were here from out of town as it's the one place that doesn't disappoint.. for me at least. The starters were delicious and so were each of my parents' entrees. Unfortunately my lobster ravioli was pretty horrible tasting . The lobster itself did not taste fresh, the consistency was not right, the entire dish left a lot to be desired, no flavor, no taste, tasted just like fish broth with no seasonings or spices. It's one of the most expensive dishes on the menu and it honestly was pretty bad tasting so my overall rating and food ratings are very low!
It was a delightful, and delicious Saturday night Fathers' Day dinner for my wife, our son and daughter-in-law and the 5-year old grandson! Ambience and service are always excellent at Sabore, and tonight did not disappoint. The food was fun to order -- the iPad's are a nice touch with pictures of each item -- and there's a great variety between land and sea. We enjoyed the 5-cheese tray as our appetizer: certainly one of the best trays around. Duck, Kobi Beef, Mahi curry, and the vegetarian entre' falafel were all tasty, nicely proportioned, and reasonably priced. The highpoint of the evening was the Liquid Nitrogen S'mores dessert: the executive chef prepared this at our table and it was a wonderful fun food experience. The 5-year old was entranced (actually all of us were) and I would most strongly recommend this item for any special occasion! In the words of my grandson: "Best Chef Ever!" If you want a memory, then take your special person (toddler or adult) to Sabore, enjoy the food and finish up with a world-class dessert experience. My son told me the next day, that this was the very best dinner at a restaurant that he'd ever had! Thanks to all for a total food experience.
I was not a fan of the buffet for Mother's Day brunch. I thought there would be more fusion foods and foods from the original menu. They did more steakhouse foods rather than global food that they advertise. I go to Sabore for the global fusion and I thought the menu was going to showcase that. I'm not saying the food was bad or anything. It was good. I think they just strayed too far away from their menu to accommodate the buffet they wanted to host for Mother's Day.
Found this wonderful restaurant online thru Open Table. We wanted a different dining experience and it was a great choice!
Our server, Ashley, had a lot to do with this. She was very knowledgeable about the menu which certainly helped us make our choices.
Thank you, the food was awesome and we'll certainly return when we're in Gainesville.
Our waitress was wonderful. But she had no help. It took her 3 trips to serve us. Took forever to get drinks but the appetizers were served very fast, too fast in fact. Overhead the manager trying to rush us out of there. Food was ok. But no flexibility at all. Would not recommend for a special occasion.
I was completely blown away by this restaurant. The food was amazing. We were a party of nine and ran the menu. DUCk, pork, fish, and beef were all ordered. All were astounding in presentation, flavor, and technique. If you live in the Gainesville area, this restaurant is a gift. I will be returning in June to introduce more friends.
We applauded the chef and staff as we walked out.
Not the same restaurant we went to last year. They have changed in their menu as noted in other reviews, and the overall feel of the restaurant as well.
From well crafted but overly salted tapas they have moved to obscure sounding dishes that are mediocre.
The wine was good.
We had the 5 worldly cheeses which was good but not really impressive. Then this ham thing which was a better than average form of prosciutto. However the ceaser salad was a ridiculous clump of romaine with seasonings that dusted the table when disturbed. My wife had baby kale salad that really would have been more palatable had the hard stems been removed.
The pork tomahawk things (a rib bone attached to a chunk of tenderloin) were OK but the broccolini tasted like something from a low end chinese fast food place. Seriously. My wife's salmon was uninspired -- nothing bad, but for the price was low key. Dessert: we were looking forward to the s'mores made at the table-side but they were out of it...we got there at 6:30 and only one table got it, so they had ONE left for Saturday evening? They also ran out of the wine I ordered (from their main menu), and they ran out of bags to place the left over wine bottle with.
Servers were good and attentive but food quality was bad.
The bar they had, almost 1/2 the restaurant, attracted very loud drunk folks who were quite disruptive -- strange people one of whom was wearing (I kid not) a fishing vest with no shirt underneath, shorts, and flip flops. Not sure why we dressed nicely for this place, they weren't looking under dressed themselves in shirtless vests and shorts.
Our first visit was entirely unlike our second, will not be back. Sorry.
