On a par with Manhattan’s best Latin restaurants, Sabor brings an eclectic vibe to its’ North Bergen, NJ neighborhood. Pulsing with an energy and excitement, intimate and elegant, Sabor celebrates the very spirit of Latin culture.

Opened in 2001 by Fernando Lopez along with his wife, Deborah, and his brother, Oscar Toledo, Sabor continues to celebrate success in a field where many restaurants do not make it past the first year mark. The brothers were born in Puerto Rico, while Deborah is originally from Cuba. Embracing their culture and its’ inherent passion for food, drink, music and service, they have created a restaurant that’s become a favorite of locals, critics and visitors alike.

With an inspired seasonal menu, signature cocktails, a distinctive wine list, the hottest music and exemplary service, Sabor takes your senses on a long awaited vacation. Celebrate with friends, plan a romantic dinner, or book a private party in the mezzanine

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.
