The food was a little pricey but good overall. Service wasn't very attentive.

Amazing food in a fun and romantic atmosphere! The service was great and the food was exceptional! It’s a great place to celebrated a birthday or anniversary, or just for a date night!

Food was excellent but portions are small and overpriced. I would suggest either lowering prices or provide a greater portion on food. Normally don’t mind electronica music but during Christmas maybe they could change up for the holidays. In fact restaurant was sparsely decorated for the holidays...

We had dinner at Sabore for graduation night, and it was simply outstanding. We have been to Sabore many times before and always enjoyed it, but somehow, it was at another level this weekend. The restaurant was crowded with many large parties celebrating graduation, so I expected service to be slow. But, to my delight, all was incredibly smooth and our server (CiCi) was quite attentive. But, the star of the show was the food. All seven in our party had wonderful meals. I had the filet oscar, and it was excellent, including the best bearnaise sauce I have ever tasted. We capped things off with the Smores Experience, which might be the most creative thing I have ever seen in a restaurant. I highly recommend it. My hat is off to Chef Valero and his crew for a wonderful evening.

I moved to Gainesville in April and I’m trying to hit all the local spots and this is by far the best-tasting food so far! The chef is a miracle-worker. Some of it is a bit over-priced but the taste really makes up for it. I’ll definitely return!

The only odd thing was there was no high chair for my toddler. Otherwise, the food and restaurant was fine. The food was quite good. Will probably go back.

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”.

We were very dissatisfied. It was over priced for the food. Everything was extra including the bread. The service was terrible. We will not be back or recommend it.

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.

I was promised 1,000 points through Open Table and only received 100 points. When I called the restaurant to explain, they told me the manager had to call me back. The manager never called back.

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.

A diamond in the rough, a NYC level type of restaurant found in Florida. From food, to service to quality/presentation/creativity is just second to none.

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
