Our table wasn't ready, & they tried to seat us at the bar for dinner. We ordered a glass of wine while we waited & it didn't come until our table was ready. There was a group of about 10 that were extremely loud that ruined any ambiance. The menu was average- raw oysters on the half shell, fried calamari, seared Ahi tuna, seafood fra diavolo. Really? There was a lamb rib appetizer, which sounded awsome, but they were burned & dry, & there was no dipping sauce. Overall the food was OK, but there was a lack of creativity which we expected from a restaurant of this calibur. It won't be long before people realize that they're paying too much money for a "good" restaurant. There are other "great" places in the area that are well worth the $.

We were a party of 4. Three of us enjoyed our meals. I had the scallops. They were delicious. My husband had a steak which was cooked the way he likes it. One meal however was a salmon dish. Our friend thought it was over cooked and was unhappy with it. They removed it from our bill.
Overall the meal was good but the atmosphere isn't appealing. The sign on the building is almost invisible. We'd suggest they do more to stand out.
We'd like to see them make it as a successful restaurant.

Amazing food. Fabulous steak frittes, cooked to perfection as were the salmon (comment was this is the best salmon I have ever had) and the Seafood Fra Diavlo. Clean, crisp Euro flavored decor and excellent and attentive service. Highly recommended.

The food was excellently prepared. From the beet salad and the sirloin steak which was perfectly seasoned, and cooked exactly how I like it, not what the chef thinks I should be eating it like! My daughter thought that the Crispy Chicken was beautiful.

This was our first time at Sabor and we would dine there again. However, this time we would request a table not directly on top of another. We realize, from experience, that many places of this level of dining do have tables that are 2 feet apart, for whatever reason, so I am not surprised. However, that does not change the fact that it is uncomfortable to be that close to another couple when you are looking for an intimate dining experience with your spouse. I cannot eavesdrop at all however my wife could hear the entirety of the other couples' conversation...they were on a first, internet set up date, he was reading from a list of prompts to ask questions....not great. However, the wine WAS. As was the food.

1. The menu and wine list were very nice.
2. The food was good and well presented.
3. The service was excellent, given the fact that there was a staff of one at the front of the house.
4. The ambiance was fine.
5. I don't mind an open kitchen, but it needs to be spruced up a bit. Cluttered looks dirty even if it's not.
6. The back hall that had to be walked through to get to the rest rooms was cluttered and dirty.
7. The restrooms were dirty.

Two days earlier, I had dinner at the restaurant of French chef Christian Constant in Paris. The food at Sabor was equally good, without the wait, larger portions, and less expensive--and not a lot of people know, so no wait. Not just for special occasions, Sabor, I think, has the best food on the South Shore, definitely the best in Plymouth for appetizers, soups, lamb, seafood, chicken, beef, pasta, and other delicious fare, all apparently sourced fresh daily by the chef, himself, from Boston suppliers or local farmers' markets, with desserts by an excellent pastry chef and a nice wine list. A lovely quiet atmosphere. Note: Open Wed-Sat evenings only.

Can't believe this restaurant has been around 16 years. In the heart of downtown Plymouth, intimate seating (about 10 tables), great service, dinners cooked to order and desserts made on premises. Appetizers were bright and luscious: crab and corn bisque and roasted beet salad. The specials, seared striper or halibut, fusilli with lobster cream sauce were absolutely delicious. Now that we found you, it won't be long before we return.

Reviews praised the small restaurant, so we decided to try it. We are very happy we did! We enjoyed the best meal of our vacation week in Plymouth. My husband selected Steak Frites, a perfect cut of sirloin, perfectly seasoned, served with parmesan rosemary fries. The little leftover was just as good reheated. I opted for the seafood special of the night, Striped sea bass, served over a mildly spiced creamy risotto, also cooked to perfection, succulent and lightly browned. It is nice to know all ingredients are organic, fresh, grown naturally, and/or wild. The space is small but not cramped. The sangrias were as good as we have had. Reservation suggested.

Sabor is an elegant restaurant in downtown Plymouth, Ma that brings quality urban dining to the suburbs. This gem is run by an owner/chef that clearly has an eye for an upscale dining environment and the skill and creativity for well above average food preparation. While his printed menu is small the specials he creates each night are numerous giving diners lots of choices and surprises for their dinning experience.
This is a restaurant that is moderately expensive and is definately best suited for adult diners, be they couples or small groups. Great for special occasions too.

My wife and I go out every Friday night. We like to try different resaurants on the South Shore, MA. We had a wonderful experience at Sabor.
Atmosphere quet, only about 8 -10 tables. Service was a little slow to bring first glass of wine. After that they did an excellent job.
Appetizers were terrific, main coarse was excellent. Would highly recommend.

This is no longer my favorite Plymouth restaurant, but it's not bad place at all. Just not very interesting any more. Food is still very good, but menu seldom has changes, even though instead of long menu, there are now "Additions, " i.e., quite a long list of specials to choose from. What is on the old menu are "old favorites" that Sabor has gained its reputation from. Seafood stew was good - I've had it there before, but it would benefit from some "change ups" occasionally. Tuna special was very tender. Salad was good but again, not very interesting.

Another fine meal at Sabor. The highlight was the braised cod, which both of us rated as superb - the chef brought out everything one could hope for in rich flavor. We raved about it. All the rest was excellent, good bread, carefully selected wines, perfect vegetables. The kitchen knows what food is about. Bravo Sabor!

Would definitely return for food and atmosphere. Two issues interfered, however, with a nearly flawless experience: ordered my steak MR; it came MW. Good steak-- too bad it was so over-cooked. Definitely out of character with the balance of the meal, which was amazing--especially wife's entrée of scallops with a crab risotto .

Issue number two was the service: server #1, who greeted us, took the drink order and explained the specials, was professional and very knowledgeable. Server #2, who took our order and handled us from that point forward, not so much. Not sure the second server even cared about the over-cooked steak.

Overall, would definitely recommend.
