Our second time to Sabor, thought our friends would enjoy as we had on our first visit. Had the same server and found him to be totally indifferent at best and rude at worst. Should have left little or no tip, he was lucky to get 10%. Certainly cast a pall on the evening.
The food was mixed, appetizer salad of beets and fish was declared very tasty. The Portuguese soup was mediocre- noodles were conspicuous by their absence, very bland overall. The lobster risotto was sadly lacking in the lobster component, for $32 was most disappointing. The arctic char was deemed very good as was the octopus dinner.
The hit and miss nature of the dinner would preclude another visit.

Amazing food as always. My only gripe is the lack of selection for cocktails compared to the competition out there. Offer some innovative drinks and we won’t have to come for dinner but go elsewhere for drinks. Quick and Easy Suggestion... get away from crushed ice in drinks. It waters down the alcohol and forces a customer to drink it fast and not enjoy it. Switch to large cubes. Food is top notch tho and in my opinion a good value price wise. Thanks

We made a reservation so seating was prompt and on time. Our waitress was outstanding and really knew what she was serving and everything else on the menu. The appetizers (bruschetta w/seaurchin,piri piri prawns and fried calamari) were awesome, the main course ( lobster risotto w/ arctic char and haddock was amazing ) and the desert ( set of three - chocolate mousse, cheesecake w/ cherry port wine sauce and leite cre’me ( portugese cream custard) were all outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Wonderfully creative and diverse menu selection, and the food was simply outstanding. Our server was engaging, friendly and provided us with very professional service. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, though it is fairly wide open in the main area so it is not particularly romantic.

Really good! One of the better options in the city. Haven't had a bad meal there yet. Find it fairly pricey compared to some other fine dining options in the city. (IE: believe it or not, it's more expensive than a comparable dinner at Uccelino's (appies, drinks,wine,main and then dessert). I know this for a fact because we tried these 2 restaurants back to back last fall for my parents 61st anniversary and the bill was approx. $200 less at Ucellino's for 6 people and we even had ALOT of leftovers from Uccelino whereas we have never had leftovers from Sabor in the 6 or so times we've been there in the last year. But that being said - you won't be disappointed at Sabor. The food is very good and authentic. Top quality. I just wish that the portions and value were a little better for the price. It's getting SO expensive to dine out!!

Being a vegetarian myself, it can sometimes be difficult to find menu items to suit my diet but I have always been happy with the vegetarian options here at Sabor. The other 3 in our group loved the seafood options. Particularily of note are: Piri Piri Prawns, Lobster Risotto, Fried Calamari, 5 tomato salad. All exceptional!

Also to note, when I made my reservations I noted that we were celebrating double anniversaries on this occasion (ours and my husband's cousin) and no mention was made of it or even a special little sampling of dessert or anything (they do have mini dessert samples on the menu) on either this occasion or my parents 61st last November. It would be nice to get a little something when you spend approx. $125/person on a special occasion. Especially since we brought another couple with us who had never been to Sabor and introduced them with a new patron.

This was my first time sitting in the upper level of this restaurant. I must say I was so impressed. The service was perfect, the ambience was amazing and the food and desert were prepared perfectly! I would definitely recommend to anyone, it doesn’t have to be a fancy night out.

We all had different Entrees and everyone enjoyed and shared their meals. Additionally, the service was spot on. We would highly recommend for a special occasion or nice dinner out!

My wife and I eat out frequently and in our view it has the best food in the city. We have tried numerous dishes and everything is ...well...just better than elsewhere including the frequently mentioned "top picks" in the city. Live music is nice, service is good, but we really come for the food. Just outstanding.

We landed in Edmonton from Saskatoon looking for a resto close to the Citadel Theatre. Little did we know what we had happened upon.

We like tapas so, naturally we had tapas.
We rarely eat dessert but we had dessert.
We rarely have a port but we had a port.

Why?
Because Darren our server was so knowledgeable, so gentle, so professional, so honest about what to recommend that we just kept eating and drinking.

The Portuguese port (Messias 1995) was precisely as it was recommended
