You didn’t include seafood on your list. Sabor is far and away the best seafood in Edmonton.

My wife and I traveled from Drumheller for our wedding anniversary and it was totally worth every cent. We had a wonderful time and a fantastic meal. Our server was knowledgeable, efficient, and also very fun. I highly recommend Sabor

I found the menu was a bit difficult to read because the lighting was low. Maybe a little bit more lighting at the table would help.

We enjoyed Sabor for a family birthday dinner. Everything was fantastic - the cava, tapas, seafood, fantastic desserts and especially our server Jeff. It was a most memorable evening! Thank you, Sabor!!!

My family of four were visiting from Seattle and wanted to have dinner at a special restaurant on our last night. We chose SABOR and definitely made the right choice. Probably one of the best restaurants, including the food and service my family and I have ever had. Our waiter, Sebastian, was absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend SABOR to both locals and tourists alike.

I took a colleague to Sabor for a celebratory lunch. We sat on the patio as it was a beautiful day. Our server walked by us several times without stopping; took about 10 min before he brought water and then he was gone again for another 10. Stopped and dropped the water off - didn't take a drink order. Left with our water for another long period. Table beside us were discussing how bad the service was and actually stopped the waiter when he was bringing us our water to ask for their bill. The waited quite some time for their bill and were very frustrated. My colleague and I were going to order a salad as an appetizer but decided not to as we both agreed it would take too long and we were there over the lunch hour and had to get back to work at some point. The waiter was also not at all helpful with the menu - we asked a couple of questions and he didn't have great answers.
The good news is that once we got our food - it was incredible. Large portion (we both took our leftovers home). The quality, taste, presentation - all were amazing. I would return for the quality of the food - hoping for better service.

Not much difference from previous visits. Food is great. The new server is suggesting Puri puri sauce after my friend asked for Tabasco for about three times, and I suggested him to check with other people, because my friend and I dined there many times and they always should have Tabasco...and they have. So kind of not a positive experience when it goes to consistent service.

We don’t live in Edmonton but usually go once a year for a weekend getaway and love to eat here. This time we got the “family style” 3 course meal and would highly recommend. It was probably our best meal here to date and more than enough food for the 2 of us.
Such a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and lovely ambiance.
The chocolate cayenne mousse is a must try.

Food was sub-par.

Piri Piri Shrimp very pasty.

Garlic shrimp were way overcooked

Grilled octopus was terrible with the overpowering olive paste

Scallops were horrendous overdone with very little flavour

Calamari was overcooked and there was very little for the price charged

We won't go back again... not reccomended!

Best dining experience I have had in years. Our server was outstanding. He greeted us within 2 minutes, and had our wine out within 2 minutes of us ordering it. Appetizers and our meals were out extremely fast and were 5/5 on taste and presentation. Our server was very attentive, knowledgeable and quality checked everything. The restaurant itself is elegant and the ambiance was great. When leaving, literally 3 different staff members wished us a good night. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

Went here for our date night, this was our second time. Food was amazing, of course! I had the chicken & chorizo paella & my boyfriend had the piri piri chicken. The chocolate mousse was the best I had ever had, the cayenne just gives that extra little oomph 😊
Our server was a lot of fun & did a fantastic job for us. Based on our first visit, expectations were very high, they did not disappoint.
Sabor is already a staple in our restaurant choices, they just don't know that yet!

First time at Sabor, special occasion for our anniversary. Menu was a little overwhelming with so many choices, but our waitress made a few suggestions, and we chose the family style seafood dinner for 2. Let’s just say we were not disappointed!! Right from the appetizers through to the desserts everything was cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. I am not usually keen on risotto or mussels, but wow! Both were delicious. Expensive.. but definitely worthy!! Can’t wait to go back and try other menu items!! Thank you for a great anniversary dinner!!

We celebrated our anniversaries with a wonderful evening of dining at Sabor's. Our group decided on the Family Platter feature and were very pleased with the variety
, generous portions, and freshness of the food. The Piri Piri shrimp was the favorite appy. The main course brought us Halibut and Chilean Sea Bass on a bed of Lobster risotto. What a delight to find big chunks of fresh lobster embedded in the creamy risotto. Dessert was a generous serving of three mouth watering treats which everyone enjoyed. Our server Kayla was friendly, and in honour of our anniversaries surprised us with port to finish off our meal. We will definitely return to try other dishes on the menu.

Apps were good. Entrees took a fair amount of time and were underwhelming. One of our group ordered the lamb which was very good but the sides were all cold. Butter hadn't even melted on the potatoes by the time he had eaten the lamb. Was poorly handled by the server and overshadowed the experience. Price was too high for the quality. Ordered the cod and prawns which seriously lacked flavor. Chose Sabor to celebrate my birthday and it is unfortunate that they were unable to deliver the quality that they are reputed for. If I return it would only be for cocktails and tapas on the wine bar side. Also, there was no acknowledgment of the special occasion. You'd think a place that handles so many special occasion parties would execute better.

Our first time at Sabor - loved the decor and had a wonderful meal with excellent service.
It is a bit noisy and there was background music which a times felt intrusive.
The fish was great - we’ll definitely go back
