Great food and service! Need reservations well in advance. Food took a bit long on this night as the cancelled concert at Rexall increased the wait but good company at a nice restaurant did not affect it! Great Place!

Service was very efficient and quick. Our server was very informative and nice. He catered to all our needs and gave the birthday girl a great surprise with a candle for her dessert. The food was outstanding, tapas are a great portion size. The wine menu is great for the pairing of all the Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. Would definitely come back the next time I visit Edmonton and would recommend to others. Thank you for the great experience.

We were a table of six celebrating a birthday. We ordered the chefs plate for all of us. The food groups arrived in timely fashion and the plates were hot. All dishes were excellent and bountiful. I even had lobster risotto left for next day to feed two. The atmosphere was jubilant and the noise level was acceptable. This was our third visit here and the restaurant and employees are very consistent.

We went to Sabor's for our son's 30th birthday celebration. Even though the restaurant was full, where we were seated felt quiet and private. The service was exceptional. Of the four main courses ordered, three were 5 out of 5. The pork/chorizo paella was overdone and dry and contained quite a number of small sharp bones. All the seafood dishes were excellent! The bartender and bar staff were also excellent as we had drinks beforehand.

The appetizer was fantastic (mussels, clams, shrimp). Some excellent wines to choose from. The main dish (family style Cod and Arctic Char with Risotto) was good. I felt like something was missing from the main dish (perhaps some sort of vegetable for balance). Love the ambiance.

Fancy enough for a special night out. Casual enough that you don’t feel out of place en route to a rock show at Rogers Place. Affordable enough that it’s a way better option than your higher level chains. Being a Vancouver-ite living in YEG, I miss top shelf seafood, but Sabor will fill that void.

Staff at Sabor are amazing! Food is good and cocktails are yummy. I have business lunches there, but be aware that parking is difficult at noon hour and it can be very noisy at noon as it is quite popular. However, the noise often helps to mask conversations as well so also a benefit :-).

We love Sabor! It is one of our favorite places for business lunch or dinner before a concert or game at Rogers Place. The décor and food are excellent and the service never misses. There are many items to choose from, though our preference is the flavorful seafood offerings, top notch.

parking near the restaurant and accessibility to restaurant is challenging for people with mobility challenges. Greeting patrons at the door could be improved with a smile instead of what resembles a scowl. Our server could have been more informative about menu as previous visit. I've been to this restaurant 3 times this past year. However, in spite of these issues that could set an unpleasant dining experience the food was delicious.

The food at Sabor is very good and the service outstanding. The seafood here is its strength, and all of it is well prepared. We had steamed clams and scallops for appetizer and the catch-of-the-day salmon and the paella for dinner. All of it was well prepared with appropriate size portions. Notably my husband's paella was some rice (unlike other places where it is mostly rice) and generous portions of the seafood. It came in a flat ceramic dish, a good sized portion, filling but not overwhelming. My clam appetizer was outstanding with a delicious garlicky broth and toasted bread for dipping. Our white sangria was the perfect partner for the food, sweet but not cloyingly so, fresh and bright. If you Google it some sites will tell you that you need to be dressed at least business casual to eat here and that might be true if you are eating later in the evening - there were people more dressed up arriving as we were leaving around 6:30 pm. However we were there around 5 pm before an Oilers game (the Rogers Place stadium is only a 5 min walk away) and there were plenty of people in jeans and Oilers tshirts or jerseys present.
