We started with the fried calamari, which was probably the highlight of the night. As well as grilled octopus, which was also pretty good. I got the lobster Risotto, and my girlfriend got the black paella. We both enjoyed the food very much but our main issue was with the table placements. Our table felt like it was in the middle of the aisle, which made for a slightly uncomfortable evening. Also, i felt i was closer to the man at the next table then i was to my date across the table from me. Would come back for the food, but would recommend a more private table.

We brought our daughter and her fiancé to Sabor Restaurant to celebrate their engagement.
The ambiance was great and the food was extraordinary.
We had the family per person dinner and were all impressed with the food.

Another wonderful evening with great food, music and company. We did the family style which was perfect to have a taste of multiple dishes and then the mini dessert platter was amazing to share and again have a bite of everything which is everyones desire.

Table placement was too close for romantic conversation. With limited people in restaurant when we were there it would have been appropriate to have us sitting at a larger table giving more distance from other guests.

Food was amazing and i have a new favourite fish! The sable fish was delicious!

Ambience and atmosphere of the restaurant was very romantic even though it was a girls night out. The live music was a lovely plus during the dinner. The food was good (tuna tartare was kinda bland and my cod was a but overcooked. Mushroom risotto and calamari were amaze balls though). Thought it was kinda strange to get charged for wine tasters which were $2/each, we tried two. And we weren't told about the cost either. The service provided by the waitress was mediocre.

Just a get-together dinner with friends who love food! The wine was excellent. The service was "en pointe" (Katie?). The food was delicious. My only minor complaint was that the rack of lamb was a bit on the bland side....in hindsight I would have ordered it with the chimichurri sauce....nevertheless the veggie selection was flavorful enough to help.

Booked an 6:30 reservation- From the moment we entered with our happy 6 month old baby; the staff was warm attentive and regular to the table for any needs we might have. The food was fantastic; the family style dinner was a seafood fest and absolutely perfect! Although we are not dessert people the fare offered was also fresh and very tasty! This IS my new favorite dining choice.

When a restaurant's online menu lists specific entree's that is what I EXPECT to find on their menu when I dine in person, NOT omissions to what I had planned to eat. I also expect fine dining to be just that and NOT have french fries on their menu and almost non-existent vegetables on the plate! The server was incredible, the meal passable at best. This is the third time I've dined here and it will be the last. They've had three opportunities and failed each time. I also emailed the restaurant about their online menu listing vs what their menu listed when I dined in person, they NEVER replied to my email.

We went to Sabor for the first time for my 53rd Birthday after I had heard some very good things about it. It was FANTASTIC!! It was just under a week before Christmas on a Weds night and was very busy but the service was great,(wish I could remember our servers name) I had the Three Boars which was incredible, my 22 year old had the octopus, my wife had the lobster risotto and my 17 year old had the lobster bisque. All were a delight. Would recommend this beauty to anyone!

Went here for a birthday dinner. The staff was incredibly knowledgeable and very patient with our indecisiveness. The food was simply amazing. The chicken, smoked duck, and port pate is something that should not be skipped if you visit here. Had the Sturgeon and the Chicken and chorizo paella as the mains, and both were exquisite in taste. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed a variety of good food, one of our party could only eat chicken and the dish offerings met needs. The fish was cooked to perfection and try the family share menu for two - a great deal and excellent choices. I liked the atmosphere and our client was impressed. Service was friendly and there was always a wait staff at the ready checking on the table, they did not intrude but watched us and were there when we needed. Definitely will be back and a safe bet for a good business meeting or pre-game meal.

First time at SABOR but had heard good things about it. Brief explanation of my ratings: it was a friday night - packed and therefore a bit noisier than I expected. Not to say it was disturbing just not what I expected. Waiter forgot table mates drink when he delivered everyone else's - had to remind him when he came to take order. The rest of the service was timely and we didn't feel rushed even though the place was packed!! Head chef diligently made his rounds throughout the place several times and asked if everything was OK. The Octopus tapas was a hit and miss - some pieces tender, some really tough and actually inedible. I should have brought it to his attention. The rest of the meal selections were tasty, came out in a timely manner, excellent recipes and selection is second to none (food and wine). All in all had a very enjoyable evening.

Fabulous food! Great service! Go with the family meal! So amazing! Cooked to perfection. The lobster risotto was generously filled with wonderful lobster bites. The fish and seafood were so fresh and tasty. Very noisy restaurant which impacted the ambience. Wish there had been more selection with the white wine by the glass particularly an oaked chardonnay. Will definitely dine there again! Many thanks for a great evening!
