Seafood
SABOR Restaurant provides a rustic yet elegant atmosphere and a menu rich in European tradition—Portuguese, Spanish, French & Italian—in the heart of Downtown and the ICE District.

OceanWise certified, we offer Edmonton’s best, most-sustainable seafood menu as well as a meat & vegetarian options.

Professional staff, a trim but superlative wine list, hand-crafted cocktails, and SABOR’s menu & atmosphere make it the perfect spot—be it in evening wear before the opera, a suit before the big meeting, or in jeans hanging out with friends.

Made in house cakes are available upon request. Requests must be made 48 hours in advance, and can only be made via phone (780-757-1114). We do not allow outside cakes to be brought into the restaurant.

BODEGA Tapas Bar is a casual setting seated on a walk-in basis only. A great stop before or after a movie or show at one of the nearby theaters, BODEGA serves authentic tapas, our signature Sangria, and superb wine & cocktails.

Quality ingredients and creative dishes! I was most impressed with all aspects of Sabor. Adrian our server was incredibly skilled. Definitely the best server I've had since Hardware Grill days. Fish of the day with risotto and a side of grilled veggies was just great. I also loved the local cheese. And our choice of French white wine was excellent (it showed Sabor has perfect storage and it was served at the ideal temperature )

Service and ambience are outstanding. One of the best places to enjoy a dinner in Edmonton.

As for the food, the selection and menu are great, but portion sizes are tiny.

We have been to Sabor before and raved about it to many people. We were excited to go back but were very disappointed. The service was very very slow and we rarely saw our waiter. Our reso was at 5:30 and we didn’t place our order until 6:20. The food was good, not outstanding as we remembered from the previous time. Our calamari was room temperature, bread with olive oil and balsamic was great. I had the lobster risotto; good flavour but hard pressed to find any lobster. My husband had the catch of the day and said it was very good. He also had the tiramisu which he said was excellent. Overall not impressed for the cost and won’t be rushing back or recommending to others going forward. Very disappointed being that it was our first dinner out after 19 months of pandemic!

This was our 30th anniversary. I noted that in our reservation not once but twice. The first time in the message part. The second time indicating it was a special occasion. Why ask this question if you are not going to acknowledge it? We were placed in the back room in the corner by the coatrack. It was so dark we had to use the light on our phone to see our menus. I wasn’t expecting a grand gesture but a nice table and at least a congratulations would have been nice. It certainly wasn’t how I wanted to spend my 30th with my husband. We won’t be back to this restaurant.

We often choose Sabor for our staff dinners and it did not disappoint. There is something for everyone and the food was fantastic. The service was prompt and attentive and our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I do miss the oysters and hope that the raw bar will return.

As always our experience at Sabor was excellent! Our server had the right balance of care & attention without being intrusive. The food was very good, we share most things as the servings are guide generous and too much food for each of us to have our our entrees. Sabor is our favourite “fine dining” restaurant. (It’s casual fine dining)

Our meals were great, for me it's usually grilled octopus, but if I stray, I stick close to Portuguese fare. It's always good here, but especially delightful this time for the service provided by our Chilean server.

The fish plate was excellent and I usually do not gravitate to that. Service was really good. The price was a bit on the high side but worth the cost due to the overall experience. Sabor is a real jewel in Edmonton and they continue to do a real nice job of a night out either with a group or a single individual.

Love how they cooked the pork. It’s a little bit like Chinese style, but I love it so much. And its too much for single. I would suggest to share it.

With high expectations we really want to love this restaurant and each time the food just let us down. The food is very mediocre and blah for what you expect and what you pay. Paella is not made right and all the other over priced dishes were way below expectations. We have now gone 5 times in total and every time our food is mind blowingly mediocre. The service and ambiance is good, though but for the food letting us down each and every time, we just cant go again or recommend it.

This was our second time to this restaurant. Our first experience was much more positive. The starters were good, in fact the mussels were delicious. The main was incredibly salty. Neither of us finished our salmon or our whitefish and the risotto, which was exceptionally salty, was literally untouched. We were not asked if there was anything wrong with the main course - it was simply cleared away. Perhaps I'm old fashioned, but this is a huge faux pas in the service industry. Desserts were well presented and tasty. I believe that will be our last visit to Sabro.

It was our 30th Anniversary and I thought there might be a little extra touch to help us celebrate, but no. Perhaps a rose or something to signify this occasion?
My chair had no padding like the other chairs and was quite uncomfortable. I had the waitress swap it out with a chair that had padding. The lobster bisque although tasty, only had one small piece of lobster in it. As well, our cod fritter appetizer was luke warm and had to send back. . It really was not that good even after we received it warmer. The main dishes however were hot and tasty. For such a pricy restaurant, we were hoping for a better experience. This wasn't quite what I was expecting to celebrate a special Anniversary. Sorry Sabor, but lost my interest in coming back.
