Located in the heart of historic downtown Pleasanton, Sabio on Main combines spirited contemporary ambiance, a meticulous respect for the bounty of Northern California and a decidedly modern take on the tapas concept.
I had high hopes for our evening. After ordering cocktails it took more then twenty minutes to receive them and we could already tell service would be very slow.
The menu looked amazing, but when the food comes out it doesn’t look or taste like you’d imagine. Pork shoulder was more of a pork chop. Octopus was ground up and nonexistent. I told our server we want to order a bottle of wine with dinner but it came out half way through our entree.
We were over it by the time dessert was a possibility.
Great food, nice decor and friendly staff. A tad expensive though.
Very nice place. Sunday dinner with a friend. The food was so good we forgot to take pictures! They don’t do tapas any longer, but a large selection of “snacks” snd appetizers. Everything was wonderful!
Listen. Drop everything. Go to this restaurant. Enjoy EVERYTHING. SERIOUSLY.
Went for brunch this past Saturday with the family. Ordered the eggs benedict, baby cake, and veggie omelette. Received meat omelette and some other dish we had not ordered. Waitress was very nice about it and it was just a simple mistake of not grabbing the right plates at the pass. No harm , no foul. Benedict was perfect, eggs done just right, quality ham, excellent. We also ordered the beignets that came with a side of chocolate sauce/ whipped cream that were very good and they comped us for the order issue. Would definitely go back. We don’t drink so I can’t really comment on the extensive wine list.
While I feel they have gotten away from their original format of Tapas and small plates, the current format is well flavored and well-thought-out. The tasteful combinations from appetizers to salads two entrees are well thought out and well balanced. Very good bouquet of flavors in all their menu offerings
Good food, friendly staff, nicely decorated. A real hit in my book.
It’s a favorite...been there several time and always enjoyed the atmoshere and ambiance!
Grossly overpriced. Avoid. How this place is still in business is a mystery
Love this place so much! Staff is wonderful and attentive. Food is delicious. The grilled cheese is to. Die. For. The bottomless mimosas were perfect for a Sunday brunch. Highly recommend.
Great food. Good to share. Exceptional mixologist
Sabio way exceeded my expectations. Food was superb with an array of distinct flavours. Winelist exceptional.
WOW! Flavor packed plates, a robust variety of dishes. Not to be missed. Quality of food is simply unmatched.
Always delicious food and good service. We brought a relative from out of town and they loved it!
Amazing in every way!!! I live across the country but want to go back to Pleasanton just to come back here!! Food and service just so incredibly good.
We made the trip from Vacaville based on a recommendation from a colleague and we were not disappointed. Everything we had was excellent and service was fantastic.
Very nice place to go on a Saturday morning! We had some local oysters to start off the day, then continued on with a monte cristo sandwich and eggs benedict. Paired with some sparkling water, this was a perfect start to a weekend!
Service was rushed then slow. They had better menu choices a few months ago. We were looking forward to a relaxing night out but felt rushed to order main courses.
Dinner and drinks with business associates. Relaxed atmosphere, great food and drinks.
Enjoyed the food once we got it. The restaurant was not that busy, and it seemed to take forever to get the food. We did order a steak they warned would be 45 minutes to cook. That seemed ok, however it took a long time to get the appetizer, and salads.
Made me look good! I had a group of work colleagues from San Francisco/Marin that are foodies and one that can’t eat gluten or dairy and was having a challenge finding a restaurant. Saw the reviews of this place and was just the ticket! Food was excellent, staff was attentive and accommodating, even brought us some extra items at the beginning of the meal. Ambiance is great. Really all around great. Everyone was full of praises for the restaurant. I will be back.
Service and timing of our selections were perfectly timed. The complimentary amuse bouche "melon gazpacho' was amazing, as was the pork belly, corn with charred husk crema and our halibut entree. Love this place, the constantly changing menu brings us back over and over again. Keep it coming!!
This is generally my date night, ladies night and just-want-to-eat-something-delicious night restaurant! I was a fan of the Tapas menu and I'm now a fan of the new menu. I always recommend this place when somebody's looking for a great restaurant, with a great offering of foods and drinks.
Love this place! Great food. Great service. We love all dishes.
Great restaurant. I had the chicken and chorizo dish which was sensational! Would highly recommend.
Creative menu across food groups and nice for sharing various tastings
Really enjoy the food and atmosphere at Sabio's. Recent menu changes have been great. We have been to the restaurant 3 times in 2 weeks!!
Needs s kids menu
Drinks weren’t great
Food was ok
Staff friendly and nice ambiance though
Went to Sabio for a birthday dinner and both the service and the food was bad. The prices would have been reasonable if the food was good, but the food was not. Think greasy, soggy chicken skin on an oversalted chicken dish that took forever to come out. Will not return and definitely do not recommend.
Over priced compared to the quality of food. Example - ordered appetizer octopus - it was $19 but there were only 4 small pieces of octopus there - disappointed. Overall presentation and taste was good but food itself was minimal. I am sorry overall experience is sub par.
Food was awesome, service was great; but a little pricey!!
Great flavors and out of the ordinary. Draft beer option was crisp and couldn't stop drinking it. Yes dishes are small but really tasty so be sure to order at least an appetizer plus entree.
Food was very tasty. Good service. Waiter recommendations were perfect.
Very pricey for the mediocre quality of the food. Although it is listed in wine spectator, there is no mid range wine prices, only high end. I would not go back.
Not a crumb left on our plates.
Food was pretty good (wish there were descriptions available on the menu & guess something left to be desired if no photos of dish can be found online for the Monte Cristo). However service was a little off...guess since they just opened the bartender was our server as well & we were jokingly giving him the benefit of the doubt that he had worked the night before. He told us our frittata was on its way but we had ordered a Monte Cristo & when I asked about the sweet & savory options for the Dutch Baby Pancakes (since they were not listed on the menu) his response was as if I did not know the difference between the two. He said sweet would be “chocolate and drizzled with maple syrup” and salty would “be like pork ham on top”. 😐 I ordered the sweet & it was actually Nutella with bananas & roasted almonds (luckily I’m not allergic to nuts or not a lover of bananas). Also, we noticed all of the tables that were seated after us were offered their choice of water but we were given good ol’ tap (which was fine). We’d like to come back to try other items but hopefully we’ll have a better customer service experience.
The food was delicious. They did say they are about to change to a traditional menu versus the Tapas. I hope hey keep the Ribeye and the Cauliflower on their new menu. It was my first time there but I will definitely go back. I
It was a great find for our anniversary dinner. We just moved back from Europe and it was a nice "bring me back to Spain" with the tapas and sparkling water! Although it was not quite tapas in Spain, the food were delicious! We ordered 5 different things on the menu. We actually liked the Asian fusion infused in the food! Overall, it was a delightful experience.
Stephanie the bartender also waited on us. Food was superb, and service was excellent. This was our second time here and us already on of our favorite go-to places.
Everything about this restaurant is excellent. We were very happy with the service. Particularly enjoyed the deviled egg, and the halibut.
