The food was just average for the price. I wasn’t wowed by anything. We were disappointed with the mofongo. The mofongo was a small portion and not the typical mofongo you expect to get at most restaurants. Would most likely not go back.

I had been to Sabor Latin Bistro for the first time last year and it left an impression. I finally made plans to have dinner there and me and my friend were not disappointed. We raved about it the entire weekend.

We reserved seats but we showed up quite early and they were more than happy to seat us right away.

Great service, delicious food and a nice ambiance, a nice night out.

This restaurant offer a fusion on Latin food. The food is good. I have known this place for many years but only began dining recently. The times when we dined there in the summer we had a really nice waiter but for my birthday celebration the waiter we had rushed us through the entire meal. Additionally, the bottle of champagne we ordered was flat and no apology was extended while we were still charged for it.

I ordered the Churrasco medium well, it was tough, dry and hardly seasoned. My girlfriend got the stuffed shrimp and she have had better. Go somewhere else for dinner and come to Sabor for the ambience, drinks and music!

The restaurant is small in comparison to how many guests they receive. The food wasn’t the best. It was bland especially for a Latin restaurant. Past 10:30 pm, the crowd is overwhelming but it does turn into a lounge so that’s understandable. I don’t recommend eating late since it gets so packed and people will be all over you and your food. Crowd is 20’s to middle-aged, lots of music and dancing, and overall a fun place to stop for a bit during a night of dancing.

Great night out. Beautiful place. Very lively, wonderful atmosphere. Food was delicious. The only negative was with one thing. Grilled Octopus was so tough it was hard to cut. We couldn’t even chew it. We didn’t complain, but told the server when they cleared our plates. Thought they would take it off the bill since we couldn’t eat it. I would still go back, just would t order the octopus. And next time I’d ask for it to be taken off.

Sabor is always wonderful. They were "A" perfect Christmas Day and handled the each table as if it was the only one in the place. Service was excellent considering how crowded it was on a holiday. WE started with ribs and empanadas (they serve 3 empanadas to a serviing, but will gladly add as many as you need (in our case -one more) We combined classics like charrasco (done to perfetion) and lechon (also done to perfection) with the grouper special which was delicious. WE ended with guava and cheese empanadas . The wine was excellent. I've never had a bad meal or bad service at Sabor whether we were just 2, a whole party, or there for a special event. We are so lucky that, for us, it is a neighborhood restaurant.

It was a good experience, but paying valet parking upfront it's very unexpected and inconvenient if you only carry cash for valet at the end of dinner. Otherwise was good.

Someone recommended it, but I was not happy with the food or service. We had a reservation, and the place was basically empty, but they took forever to give us a table. We waited for more than an hour for the food, and none of us were happy with the entrée. Not worth it.

I will not come back for dinner. I might stop by for drinks if I don't have any other place to go.

I love everything about this restaurant. It has great ambiance. I feel happy as soon as I walk through the door. We have been here many times for dinner and it is always outstanding in every way. The greeting when you arrive is always very welcoming and the servers are knowledgable and attentive witho being overbearing. This was our first time for lunch and it was wonderful as always. They have a great lunch menu. It is an excellent value with good choices. My husband had an offering from the lunch menu that was 3 courses for $20. He chose a carne (meat) stew that he said was delicious plus choice of soup or salad and several desert choices. He had the flan and it was yummy.

Was not impressed. Very small food portions and the sangria was literally wine with ice added. Totally disappointing. Went there with my wife on a "date night" we both we're let down. First and last time there.. Great location, beautiful building and great location. Food was sub par and pitcher of sangria was beyond mediocre to say the least. Will not be returning..
