Menu could include more items, specially dessert. Drinjs are amazing and food is good. I love the decorations.

The reason I gave it a 3 star over all was because the minute we walked in the girl that sat us was very unfriendly. It set a very uneasy mood for us. She was rude to be honest. The food was great and our waiter was excellent.

From out of town- we were staying in the area for the Rose Bowl. We were a bit nervous with it being NYE- but far surpassed our expectations.

It really feels like they have given up on serving premium Mexican fare. Eating at many other places, priced well below the average Sabor plate cost, I have had better nearly everywhere else.

Specifically the ancho in the mole, tasted like they went to a canned mole mix, rather than making a fresh batch. Serving two tortillas with the meal was a little insulting, I guess they have there reasons.

What this place lacks is competition in their target price range. Valencians seem to like expensive and infer that it is good because of that. Perhaps it works for them, but for myself and $180 for dinner for four, there are plenty of places that wouldn’t give me sense of a forgettable evening

Better than average Mexican restaurant. Nice ambiance, fun decor, a little noisy. Good place for a group dinner. For a party of two, maybe not so much, unless there was a quirt corner I didn't see. The food was good, very nice presentations, but taste-wise, nothing outstanding. However, the margaritas were very good!

Sabor has the best Mexican food, margaritas, and overall staff in the entire Santa Clarita Valley. I have lived in Santa Clarita for nearly 30 years.. seen them all, eaten at them all , and Sabor consistently stands out in quality food and friendly service. The owners have created a unique atmosphere and treat their staff like family, which in turn is passed on to the public.. of which there are many regulars.

Always love dining here. The food is wonderful as is the service. Unfortunately during this visit the wait staff was constantly asking to take our plates away whether or not we were finished eating. The constant interruption was not necessary and very annoying. Leave the plates till everyone is finished and stop with the constant pestering.

Fantastic restaurant! Really enjoyed the seasonal margarita's-watermelon berries! The panochos yucateco were amazing and delicious. We enjoyed the street tacos de puerco and the enchiladas de sabor, both excellent dishes! Best way to end our hectic work week! Our server Francisco was extremely helpful assisting us with our selections. He did a super job keeping us happy and we really enjoyed our conversations with him!
Thank you!

I ordered a specialty salad and a few drinks with my date. I had planned to order more, but I found that the salad I got was so heavily laden with dressing on wilted soggy vegetables that I lost my appetite and ordered more drinks. :) It had a great atmosphere for my date, so it was still a win. But I was not impressed.

Came on the recommendation of co-workers. I am a bit of a foodie and enjoy trying new places. I was warned of the prices, but was told I would be happy. We were seated promptly, and then nothing. No chips, no salsa, no "welcome". And so we sat with our menus and planned our food. Finally, a server from another table notified our server we were there. We had waited long enough we had our drink and food order ready. We did not see our server again until we after we asked the busboy for our check.
The food was amazing. The margaritas were large and tasty. Portions were a good size, though for half a chicken in mole, two tortillas is insufficient ( I would have asked for more, but the server was nowhere to be found).
Back at work, I was told the service I endured was not typical, so I guess that was my luck.

Their register wasn’t working and declined my card several times. A bit of an embarrassing moment at first. After they rebooted the system my card went through. Other than that I enjoyed the dinner and the restaurant. A little pricey for what you get.

My enchiladas had at least 3 chunks of chicken fat that I had to spit out. It was special occasion so I did not make a big deal over it... but I was disillusioned since they were $18.00. Margaritas were good.
