Had a great meal with friends. Margarita was HUGE but very delicious.

This restaurant is a reflection of human beings. A lot of attention is spent on aesthetics, and very little on substance. It's a stunning Mexican restaurant and the servers are professional to a point you can't fault. The meals are plated beautifully, but unfortunately are terribly bland. All four of us felt the same way and were incredibly disappointed after the promise of something more special than your average Mexican restaurant. In fact, your local inexpensive restaurant has far more flavor at half the cost. My meal was dry and had no sauce. Another friend commented that fish and cream just don't go together. Fish and lime go do! Sadly the enormous margarita's did not take the pain out of paying the same size bill. The plantains were delicious, but how hard is it to fry a banana? I would like to go back to give it a second chance, but I know that I would just be going back in the same way that you go back to a beautiful/handsome person hoping that they've worked on their personality and this time they might be nice and not so cold. We both know the answer is a waste of time and money.

It's the Staff at Sabor that makes the difference. It's hard to find a restaurant in the SCV where the Staff is as dedicated to great service every single time you visit. By the way, the food is amazing too.

Went there on recommendation and found ambiance really exciting! Very upbeat - even classy. Waiter was very attentive, courteous and inviting. Sad to say that's where the good comments end. After tasting a watery margarita - and then having it replaced with one that was identical, the explanation we received was that it "came frozen that way and that all that ice ruins it." (i.e. had neither flavor or punch!) Our two separate courses followed - one being the House Special chicken concoction. Mine was a (we thought) predictable cheese enchilada - yet each was disappointing to the point of our option to not clean our expensive plates! Oh, yes, we also tried the chicken tortilla soup which like its companion dishes seemed to have an unusual flavor and all seemed to carry a "not bad - but not good" after-taste. Fortunately, the watery margarita was removed from our bill - yet even so, the tab exceeded $50 for two entrés and a cup of soup - no other drinks, salad or dessert, etc.

Summary: Really enjoyed the interior architecture and ambiance - nice service - but over-priced food we actually didn't enjoy. So, sorry, but how could we recommend a restaurant that had food we wouldn't repeat?

The food at Sabor is always above average or better, the drinks are decent, and the service by the wait staff is outstanding. Actually, the wait staff/servers/etc are very attentive and friendly--probably the highlight of Sabor. The problem I have is with their lack of planning. The past two times we have gone to Sabor we have made reservations. On both occasions we arrived five minutes before the time they accepted as our reservation and we were not seated until 25 minutes after that time. Don't tell me 6:30 is fine then seat me at 7:00. There are too many other quality Mexican restaurants in this area to deal with their lack of organization any more. We will take our business elsewhere. Luckily for them the waiters and food are good, so they will continue to be packed with people who will tolerate their incompetence.

Driving home after seeing Golden Kingdoms at the Getty Museum. A desire for Mexican cuisine sent me to Open Table and Sabor looked interesting. It was in a very large mall and we almost didn’t go but we were hungry and entrance was from the outside. What a fun surprise when we saw the interior, well done. I judge Mexican restaurants by their salsa and chips. Delicious. Ok on to the menu, not your typical Americanized Mexican food. My crispy Chile rellanos were delicious and I could have eaten a dozen but settled for 2. Excellent and fresh guacamole. My husband had the chicken burrito and it was delicious. I am so glad we stopped. Now I hope I can replicate the crispy rellano.

First of all - I want to say that our issues with the restaurant had nothing to do with the service, which was excellent. From the hostess , to our wonderful waiter , to the people who refilled our water everyone could have not been nicer/more efficient. The food, however, was a disappointment. The chips had no salt. The salsa had no taste. The margarita was WAY sweet. The short ribs carnitas had good flavor but were a tiny portion for $25. The beans needed SALT! One friend had the street tacos and said they were good, and another had a burrito which she said was not bad - but for a place with prices like this I would expect more.

I was here on a Friday night to celebrate my Bday with family and friends. We all had a great time as a group and with our server . 😔i dont remember their names, but they were amazing. Food quality, taste, and presentation was great. My friends were amazed by the size of the Margaritas. They said "you get on the drinks what you dont get in the food", because the portions seems small to them.
thank you all for your service.

Sabor has always been among my favorite spots to eat, but this last visit had caused me to scratched it from my list. The problem is the food; the tacos lacked any real kick but the enchilada with chicken was a disaster. The tortilla was packed with chicken but there was so much chicken and it was do dry I almost had to choke it down. I ate only one of the three enchildadas The sauce was minimal and no sauce touched the chicken. Que lastima.
