Sabore - Tioga Ratings and Reviews
We went here for Saturday brunch. He was delicious. Best eggs benedict I have ever had. The waitress was extremely friendly. Spoke to us in lenght about the restaurant, where they get their food, and how they prepare their food. Next time we are in Gainesville we will go back for dinner and try out the bar area. This restaurant is beautiful!!
The lobster ravioli was topped with an ethereal foam.
The charcuterie board had many savory flavors, and textures.
Yes, Silver Oak by the Glass.
But, the S'mores made with liquid nitrogen at table-side, was a theatrical experience that caused this restaurant to be remembered with my other favorite, one-of-a-kind, experiences: The Four Seasons in Atlanta, The Inn at Little Washington, ... , etc.
We came to Gainesville for the weekend and as we love to try new food we came to Sabore. The food, the drinks and the service were outstanding. We had the tuna tostones as the appetizer, and the grilled octopus and Kobe flank stake as entrees. And we finished with the Cronuts. Jeremy and the entire staff were attentive and super cordial. Thank you for a great experience that was worth every single penny :) We highly recommend this restaurant to everyone that's looking for an amazing food experience!
The food was to die for... I wish I could have tried everything on the menu. However, what I did have left me wanting more. Never in my life had I had food like this- true it was my first time eating octopus, and yet I never thought it would be this amazing. For those who are willing to try new things the Grilled Spanish Octopus is a must as well as the Fried Rhode Island Calamari. And for the vegans try the Spinach a la Catalana the way this dish was made and the way it taste would make anyone want to slap their mom for not cooking spinach this way. Needless to say I would be coming back again. The staff was very friendly and the chief even came out to check on us. I enjoy everything about this place and I plan on going back again for another date night with the hubby.
Three of us had dinner on a Sunday evening and the food was amazing. Very fresh, very inventive and we will dine there again on my next trip back to Gainsville. The service was excellent and without a doubt the best that I have experienced in town. If you have any doubts about going, let me tell you to put them aside and make the journey, especially if you consider yourself a foodie.
Were visiting Gainesville for a few days and were looking for a good steak. This restaurant did not pop up on any searches for steak houses, we only found it on Ken's Eats blog. The restaurant is beautiful, the food is outstanding and the service was excellent. Filet Mignon was awesome. Highly recommend it. My salad was gigantic though, would recommend splitting with at least three people.
I have been here a number of times. Since my last visit, the menu has completely changed. Not for the better. The previous tapas menu was wonderful! I have never had a less than wonderful experience. This time, the food was only mediocre. The calamari was too bready and had little flavor. The charcuterie plate had a salmon mix rather than the billed fifth meat. The potato side was ok, but needed something. The best meal was the scallops. The service was wonderful as always, I have come here every time I visited my family( usually 3-4 times a year), but I have no need to return. I miss the old Sabore!
Sabore is a high class, tasty spot. The decor is modern and sexy with a menu to match. The waitstaff and Chef made us feel special. I loved the use of technology for their menu and wines. If you are celebrating a special occasion, hanging out with the girls or need a date night, head to Sabore.
Always love eating here. It seems their focus has gone away from tapas to a more traditional menu. You can obviously still share, but kind of miss the whole tapas thing. The short rib and pork chop were outstanding. Caesar salad was enough for 6 people - even if one person did a pretty good job of it. They served a broccoli soup tasting as an amuse bouche (sp?) that was to die for, and I would love to see that on the regular menu. Maybe one of the best soups I've ever had. The chorizo mashed potatoes were excellent, but the coconut risotto was a bit dry and kind of uninteresting. Always love their calamari, but this time they were a bit over sauced and didn't have the whole, crispy calamari - just the rings. Still good, but not fabulous. Could have just been a fluky night. Service was great and we got lots of attention from the entire staff.
Tapas are now secondary, so that's the first warning. They still will do "tapas style" for you, but the menu is not geared for it and it does not work well.
This was our second time here and while service was amazing the first time, it was dismal this time. Literally 15 minutes between being seated, by our server, and her bothering to come back for drinks. She was absent most of the time, failed to bring anything asked for, including a functioning menu. The saving grace of service was the busser who was clearly trying his best to cover for our terrible server.
You'll easily drop $100-150 for two and, while it used to be, it definitely isn't anymore. If you're in Tioga hit up blue highway and grab a beer at WOB. It'll be a better night.
What an amazing menu. I brought my mother in for her birthday after not visiting the place in a couple years. The menu is very awesome with Spanish and French classics and fusions of both. It is for refined eaters who know types of cuts, bloodlines of animals and classic high end French and Barcelonan food. The chef and FOH were on point and very insightful! Keep up the awesome work!
Not your average Gainesvillian!
This was our third visit but the first time since the menu changed. We were looking forward to something that is no longer on the menu and its replacement was subpar to the original. While nothing was bad with the visit, we were still disappointed because we were excited about our visit and what we thought we were going to be eating. The new menu doesn't seem inspired by anything new. Nothing revolutionary. While we are a fan of truffles, we weren't overly impressed with the expensive truffles that were being highlighted. Likely won't return until the menu changes again.
We had been to Sabore once before & were happy to get a last-minute reservation. The menu is interesting & on the eclectic side. We shared a great kale salad with crispy quinoa, dried fruit, shredded manchego cheese & prosciutto. Then the 2 of us shared a meat charcuterie platter and a cheese platter. Each had 3 varieties and was served with thinly sliced crackers, tomato bread, a persimmon compote, prunes, and fresh berries. It was very filling. We were too full for dessert. Would definitely go back!
I love Sabore! The food is very inventive, and the drinks are interesting. My favorite dish is the red curry mahi mahi. But one comment...if you are a vegetarian (as we had one in our group) be aware that they don't let you know all the ingredients in some things that you would expect to be vegetarian. They don't denote it on the menu, so if you are concerned make sure you ask the waiter.
Celebrated our wedding anniversary last night at Sabore. Upon going through their menu, we were instantly disappointed to find out that my husband's favourite lobster bisque has been taken off the menu. Also, they don't serve their sangrias in pitchers anymore, I don't know why! The new menu doesn't seem too appetising without our old-time favourites. It will be a long time before we go back to Sabore again. Already, my husband has spread the bad news about the lobster bisque to all his friends.
Unusual for Sabore, we waited for almost an hour after ordering to receive our entrees. They have switched formats from tapas style to entree style. Not a plus in my opinion. The food however was excellent as usual. We even ordered the SMORES dessert and that was a real treat w the liquid nitrogen, campfire smell and wonderful chocolate.
