It was one of the best fine dining experiences we have ever had. Would be proud to take anyone there. Just amazing.
This is my favourite place to treat myself & others; this time I was indulging my parents. The service is what should be expected at fine dining & the menu is diverse enough to accommodate any diner while still focusing on amazing fish & seafood.
Darren was a fabulous waiter; charming & entertaining without sacrificing service levels. Just another great experience all around.
One of my favourite spots, very good seafood, lots of choices, good sharing menu, also family style, Darren was our server and was excellant, cocktails were outstanding, Surg was the host and he was very friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant
Food is always delicious, the Three Boars dish and the lobster Risotto are amazing and worth coming back again and again for. Service was outstanding, great ambience, a bit pricey for the portion size but worth it for the taste.
I've previously been to Sabor and enjoy the food every time. Their specials are always great and the service is always quick and friendly; especially for lunch when time is limited.
This was my second time at Sabor. The first time I had a terrible experience with the service and food, but I decided to give it a second chance. This time around was even worse. The service was incredibly slow (and I'm a very patient person). It probably took a GOOD 20 minutes, if not more, just to get our drinks ordered. Even longer to order our food. Once our food was actually ordered it didn't take too long for it to arrive... if it had been the correct order. There was a mess-up with our order, so we ended up having to wait longer. When my order did arrive, it was very good. The wine I had was also very good. Unfortunately, the service took away from the food. For an upscale restaurant, I expected better. Don't know if it was our server's first day, or worst day.
Sabor was fantastic...as good as we were told. Service was perfect....fast and friendly.
We four adults chose Sabor, once again, because it was Downtown Dining Week but this time we chose the $55 pp Family Service option. We selected a delightful Portuguese Branco wine to accompany the upcoming fish and shellfish offerings. Oysters on the half shell from both the Atlantic and the Pacific Coasts were served first and they were delicious! Tender mussels in a light tomato cream sauce followed and our Portuguese buns came in handy to sop up the lovely sauce. Plump grilled shrimp were served in a Piri Piri sauce that could have been more spicy and less mayonnaise-y because the greens underneath were practically inedible. The main course consisted of grilled black cod and halibut served on top of a chunky and tasty lobster risotto. However, there were no other vegetables to be enjoyed. Finally, we enjoyed three small desserts: creme brulee, sour cherry cheesecake and chocolate mousse. Our server was adept and personable and made our evening quite pleasant.
Loved it as usual! Our favorite place to dine! Always delicious! Always great service!
We were on a date in the city and looking for a unique restaurant with an interesting menu. We found both in Sabor. We would ask for Pamela To be our server as she lead us through our menu options and looked after us extraordinarily well.
Downtown Dining Week is amazing!! Sabor’s choices for this event were outstanding! We had a fantastic meal and super service at this beautiful restaurant! What a treat!!
Our group of seven thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The service was amazing, as was the food and wine. Each course was piping hot and delicious. The seafood- especially the Piri Piri Shrimp- was excellent. I am told the scallops and paella were toothsome and savory, and had just the right amount of spice. Some of us enjoyed the Dining Week menu, and others ordered a la carte. Both choices were just fine with our waiter. We also appreciated his wit and charm- both made for a very enjoyable evening. Our one wish- and we should perhaps have said something earlier- was that we each would have like to have had our own bill rather than the group bill. Next time, and there will be one!, we'll know to request separate bills. Thanks for a great evening!
Good food, ambience and service. We love the bread!
I went with 7 friends for an annual lunch we have and we had a fabulous time! The food was amazing and the service was impeccable as our server gave us recommendations and made our lunch extra special. I love Sabor and will continue to come here.
Great food, great service and loved The atmosphere!
Funnest meal in a while!! Good friends, excellent waiter, excellent food!!!
The server was very nice and helpful. The dishes were delicious. We had the cod and shrimp and the three boars. You got the bang for your buck here. There was guitarist in the middle of the dining room and it was lovely. Would definitely recommend to peers and come back again.
Amazing food, service and atmosphere. If you like seafood, I definitely recommend this place. I shared a Family Style Dinner with a friend and recommend it! We were able to try 2 appetizers (our server even brought us extra bread for dipping), 2 types of fish on lobster risotto and 3 types of desserts. Overall, one of my favourite restaurants in Edmonton and perfect for a "treat yourself" evening, celebration or date.
Exceptional as always
The food was fantastic, ambience was beautiful, service was great! I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion. It's on the pricey side, but worth it! :)
Just love this restaurant.
Too bad it's not in Calgary!
I had the bacalhau, i did like the dish but still prefer the boil potatoes and vegetables
Always awesome! Food and service is great! Highly recommend!
The family style dinner is a great value and delicious!
The food and atmosphere was amazing! Service was very good as well. Definitely will be going back. More so for special occasions or a fancy night out.
The best food & great & friendly staff.
Solid food, great atmosphere. We love Sabor and weren’t disappointed this time around. However, we weren’t overly fond of our server this time. She seemed to lack a good sense of professionalism when it came to dealing with a few hiccups with the bill and a missing gift card she was trying to locate for us.
Our dinner at Sabor was amazing. The service was fantastic and the food as well. Many options for vegetarians. Great seafood. Wine was great. Would highly recommend!
The acoustic could be improved to facilitate easier conversation
Excellent as always! lunch was perfect along with the service and food !
Delicious. So many menu items I need to try. Great good and terrific service highly recommended.
We had a wonderful evening at Sabor celebrating my Mom’s 81st birthday. The food was top notch as usual; we’ve never had a disappointing meal there, it’s always yummy!! Our server Darren was very knowledgeable and had some great recommendations - he helped make our evening as enjoyable as it was-Thanks! Already looking forward to our next visit there. Well done!!
Such an incredible restaurant downtown. Loved the food and will definitely come back again. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and our reso only got us a table in a back dark corner away from the city view and lively atmosphere we were looking forward to seeing.
Nice restaurant to get together with family and friends. Great food and service!!! We definitely recommend it.
Had the tuna which was really good with piri piri prawns for appetizer. Gf had piri piri chicken and chorizo which was great as well.
This was our first time here. We decided to go with the family style meal.
The whole meal was amazing. I can't think of anything bad to say at all.
From start to finish it was outstanding.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting, good service, excellent wine & amazing food, to come here.
We went to this restaurant but had little time. The server was great and noted it; we were in and out in 45 mins like we requested and had time to eat 2 scrumptious dessert. We also had a wheat allergy and they accommodated! And to top it all off, my friend left her cell phone at the table and when we called it, the owner answered it and on his way to drop it off at the Red Arrow - for which my friend had to catch a bus - and he knew that because our waiter had asked us about our need for rushing. What amazing and thoughtful service. I mean who does that??? I loved this restaurant before but loved it even more with our rushed and particular requests and above and beyond service provided. Thank you Sabor!
A friend suggested this restaurant as I was looking for a place that was both vegan-friendly and keto-friendly (Polar dietary requirements) for Valentine's Day. I was really excited as we previewed the menu to see an entire vegetarian section.
I asked the server which options could be made vegan friendly and she seemed to immediately panic and didn't seem to know and went back to the kitchen to find out what could be done. She said there were only 2 options from the vegetarian menu that were viable (the risotto and paella) so I picked one. Neither were an option that I was hoping for so I'm not sure my satisfaction with that could have been improved.
I had emailed the company to ask about vegan options earlier in the day (this was on a Sunday so the response came on Monday) and was told that everything but 1 item (the risotto) on the menu could be made vegan which happened to be one of the two options the waitress said was vegan. This confuses me, I'd have loved to have one of the other dishes if I'd have thought it was an option.
My date ordered the Three Boars and asked for seasonal veggies and a ceasar salad and the server really tried to convince him that this was not a good idea. This was what he wanted given his own dietary restrictions. When she brought the platter out for him, it was two salads in a sweet sauce which did not meet his restrictions. We were very confused about why this happened but given how fussy the waitress was about her recommendations, we didn't bother asking for a change to be made.
I understand fussy eaters are a challenge for a kitchen but we chose a Sunday night so that it would be less busy in the hopes that our accommodations would cause less stress on the kitchen. Overall, we were pretty disappointed given the price for food, the lack of options given to us knowing now that there were more available, and not receiving what we ordered.
I do think it's a nice restaurant and a nice atmosphere but I'm not sure we'll be back.
We really enjoyed our evening out with friends. The specials were great. Food was delicious and well prepared. Service was attentive.
