Ive been here 5 or 6 times. The food and service are always SPOT ON.

Prices are around the same as the keg but Sabor is one of the finest dining experiences in town. One of the well hidden gems of the edmonton dining scene.

The food was great and service was amazing. It's not that I don't expect good service but Sabor always exceeds expectations. There were four of us and all of us had some sort of dietary restriction including some severe allergies and the server was super kind and the restaurant was very accommodating! Much appreciated and would highly recommend!

Celebrated our anniversary. Would like to have had a more private or intimate table, but location was acceptable. Due to hard surfaces and size of table separating the two diners, the noise level was a bit higher than desired. Overall, attentive and fast service, excellent food and wide menu choices contributed to a lasting and positive impression. Will definitely return.

Hands down the best seafood in Edmonton. Our server was on point and the pricing was fair. I was mad at my self for not knowing that this place existed. We had sea food platter and it was more.then enough food for the two of us.

My only issue was they changed the ingredients on the Paella. Previously no bell peppers on many occasions when I have enjoyed the dish. Bell peppers disagree with me and I assumed the menu item would be the same. NOT. Tasted great, after dinner mint was a heavy dose of Tums. The other 3 meals were great.

Overall a good experience, though not without some issues. Food was excellent (seafood paella and seafood risoto), and waitress was very good as well. On the downside, wine is a bit overpriced compared to other establishments. And our evening got off to a rocky start as we were a few minutes early - the gentleman manning reception was short and surely, sharply advising us to literally "go away" for the 12 minutes until our appointed reservation time. We returned 2 minutes before our time, and that seemed to annoy him even more - watching him, he seemed quite annoyed in general at the patrons. Maybe he was just having an off night ... Fortunately, a hostess stepped in a minute later, and arranged our seating straight away. All good from there.

Good food but not great for the price. There is also a very loud dance club next to the restaurant, so if you go at night expect it to be very loud. Was hard to hold a conversation.

Everything was fine until the very end of the meal when we were rushed by one of the owners who wanted our table. Yes, we did take our time celebrating a birthday - and we also ordered tapas, wine, entrés. At the very end of our evening, one of the owners came to our table, grabbed the portable debit machine, stuck a credit card in and said...ok who's is this, let get going. Bit of a bummer. Its like you are all "welcome" when you arrive, but they tire of you and want you gone. Left a big enough distaste in my mouth, probably won't return. I prefer the Bodega at the front.

Great seafood that was served quickly and generous with the portions. The place is very well decorated and designed except I found the largest open area got quite noisy towards the busiest time of the night. Everyone looked and acted professional and with courtesy.

Our serves was attentive but a bit too much at the beginning. She asked us four times in the first 20 minutes if we were ready to order. I was part of four colleagues and friends who had not gotten out together in 18 months so we caught up while perusing the menu.

I would heartily recommend Sabor for the menu and wine list...top notch!

It had potential to be fabulous however, my lobster and steak were overcooked and the waiter was inattentive and not particularly helpful. He tried to be a good server but it was obviously forced and he didn't want to be there.
