Very good food. Surprised that they charge for every small bowl of salsa as well as chips.

Very disappointing they now charge for chips and salsa. Seems petty. Especially when paying the massive mark up on alcohol. If the owner reads this please find another way to sharpen your profit.

Have been going here for years - about once every month or two. Food is always very good. Service usually good too and ambience is great. Unfortunately, they made the very bold and unpopular decision to start charging $3.50 for each order of chips and salsa (previously free like virtually every Mexican restaurant) AND they charge $1.50 for a salsa refill. Not even included if you order one of their $20+ meals. I get it at a lower margin / lower end quick serve place, but doesn’t make sense here at all. I feel bad for the wait staff who now have to tell every table the bad news.

The ambience and service is very nice however the food was just OK. May of the dishes including the fish tacos and the ceviche were dry. In addition, they now charge for chips and salsa. With the prices they charge (highest in the city), you would think they could afford to give chips and salsa at no charge.

Very disappointed. They have decided to start charging for both chips and salsa. Every basket and every tiny bowl of salsa. Never got our tortillas with our meal. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

It was my mother-in-laws 97 Birthday. All she wanted was a cheese enchilada. It wasn’t on the menu and they wanted to charge $20 for a special order. She ended up with broth soup.

I am not pleased with the new policy of charging for chips and salsa. I would rather see a small increase in the cost of food or drink.

Everything is great except they are on the expensive side for Mexican food. Now they have added a $3.00 charge for chips and salsa. As I understood it, each time one asked for chips and salsa, you are charged again.

I always enjoy Sabor as a "go to" spot with local clients. The food is unique and not your typical Mexican faire.

From the moment I walked in the door I loved this place! The ambience is beautiful. It was my bday and my friend that lives in the area suggested this restaurant. I made a reservation on open table. I drove from Orange to celebrate with friends living up here. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the owner is the sister of one of my favorite restaurants in my town. It must run in the family that they are blessed to be amazing chefs. The food was delicious. The service awesome! Our server Francisco attended to our every need. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and had great recommendations. Their margaritas are the best I’ve had! I even got to meet the owner and her husband! Thank you for stopping at the table! My friend has been many times. She loves this restaurant! I now know why! Had a great bday dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Perfect for date night and business dinner. Had a business dinner. one only complaint is that the entrees were all on the smaller size. Main dishes came with two very small tortillas.

Always a favorite spot to dine when we are traveling as we are not local. Taquitos, panuchos yacatecos, and the house margarita are proven winners.

We picked Sabor for my daughter's 25th birthday celebration. Did not think the food was that good. My husband asked for salt, who needs that at a Mexican restaurant? Very underseasoned and overpriced. I ordered the CHILE RELLENO DE MARISCO for $25 and could not believe what a small portion it was. Don't think we will be going back
