It was our first visit and we will be back. The food was outstanding and the service was perfect. The chef even came to our table to ask how we enjoyed our meals. What a wonderful experience!
Food was a alright, but very expensive. Service was slow and very inattentive. Waitress was haughty and asked us if we wanted our check before we had to ask for coffee and dessert. Overall, a very mediocre experience. Won’t be back again...
Everything about Sabroso was truly outstanding. FOOD WAS BEST EVER
Service was a little slow, prom night had them very busy, but we were in no rush and enjoyed the opportunity to talk with friends we don't see as often as we would like. The food was excellent and the atmosphere quiet for talking with the music coming from the bar not too load. All and all a very pleasant couple of hours. We'll be back!
What a pleasant surprise! Quite off the beaten path tucked back behind a thicket of trees Sabroso was not easy to find. We were visiting a Spa/Retreat in New Mexico and decided to use Open Table to do what it does best, suggest a restaurant that otherwise we would not be aware of. We found Sabroso, read the reviews and decided to take the 1 hr. trip from our Spa to experience some real southwestern food. When we arrived, we were surprised, the place was quite dated in appearance, the outside as well as the inside could use some well-deserved TLC and updates. Thankfully, how it looked on the outside does not reflect what is going on, on the inside! (Can't judge a book by the cover)
It was worth the drive! The chef there is very creative and his preparations fresh and innovative! We had the braised Buffalo short ribs with fresh veggies and the most delicious white/sweet potato mash on a bed of green pesto (so different but delicious)! We also had the ginger pork belly and Portobello fries. I had a custom concoction from the bar their version of a Mojito the Taos Bliss it was also delicious.
I am truly glad to say the food is the star of this show and if ever we are in New Mexico again we will make the trip to Sabroso's. One of our top 5 faves for sure!
Service was great!!!
Sides were unique and very good however steaks were over cooked and ribeye was more fat than meat.
Wonderful place - very attractive New Mexican decor and a delicious selection of salads, entrees, etc. I had a fish taco and spinach salad with pine nuts and pesto dressing - SOOOO good!
For happy hour not necesssrily dinner. Not thrilled with the finner menu.
This place is a local favorite with an authentic New Mexican twist on many of its dishes and drinks! A great vibe with beautiful live music.
Service was excellent and the live music was a wonderful addition to a very pleasant meal.
Great ambiance, nice wait staff and chef.
Great tasting food, vegetables were tough and couldn’t eat them, but we enjoyed everything else.
Great food and service a very nice place to eat and a beautiful atmosphere.
A bit pricey, but the food was amazing and the service good.
Excellent meal and service. Close to home and with great atmosphere.
We came to Taos from Fort Worth on Wednesday, which was my husband’s birthday. We got in super late Wednesday; super early Thursday, so didn’t go out then. Then Thursday was Valentines Day, so we didn’t go to dinner. So, Friday night we decided would be his birthday dinner night. The staff, restaurant, and food left nothing to be desired in a restaurant. It was beyond good. We all highly recommend it, and will definitely be back.
Wait staff was rude and inattentive. Food was pedestrian and overpriced. This used to be a great restaurant, the live entertainment is all it’s got going for it now.
We had a most enjoyable dinner at Sabroso. Very nice variety of appetizers, salads, main courses, and desserts. We had a duck wing appetizer that was plentiful and very tasty. Caesar salad was a very good salad but not a classic Caesar salad. Our main courses consisted of salmon and BBQ ribs. Both dishes were excellent and the serving were quite plentiful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and provided excellent service. Overall, a wonderful dining experience close to Taos.
Great drinks at the bar and a good bar tender. The food however, was not particularly good. The buffalo short ribs were fatty and lackluster, the chef's special wagu beef was impossible to cut and lacked flavor. The waitress, Cheyenne, was not interested in providing service; more of a disgruntled attitude.
Was recommended from a friend. It did not disappoint.
W Love SOBROSO on any night but especially Wednesday’s when Jimmy Sadler is playing.
It was a really cold and snowy night. We could have used a four wheel drive to get there. I imagine it is a lovely spot in the summer but it is pretty remote. The parking lot was treacherous and nearly full. we found no place to park until someone pulled out.
The warmth from the fire place did not heat up the dining room, so I needed my coat to be comfortable for dinner. The waiter was sweet, friendly and competent. The bus boy barely even looked at us and said nothing, not even hello, as he poured our water. He became more friendly as the night wore on. It was a perfect night for french onion soup and it hit the spot. delicious and traditional. All the food was heavy on butter and cream but that was what you would expect from cream of potato soup and chicken pot pie with a puff pastry crust. My fish tacos were delicious and pretty big. I could have ordered just one and been satisfied. It's nice to have a choice. The mahi-mahi was overcooked and dry, but with all the toppings it was hardly noticeable and the whole presentation was flavorful. They have a very comprehensive and fairly priced wine menu. Now that NM laws have changed you can take an unfinished bottle out with you, which I appreciated. The singer in the bar provided nice background music in the dining room. The bar looks like a nice place to hang out, too.
Steak frites was the highlight of this place. The mussels were just okay and pork ribs less tender than you’d expect. Service was good and local musician made everything fun and good. I think we just made choices that we did not appreciate.
Great food and service by Cheyenne
This was not our first visit to Sabroso. Every time we come skiing to Taos we make it a point to dine there. The food was even better than usual I had a fillet with a wild mushroom sauce that’s was amazing. Service was competent and friendly. The fire was burning in the old adobe fireplace - totally a romantic atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
Wonderful dining experience!
New chef, great menu. Food is excellently prepared and very appealing on the plate. The service is extraordinary for Taos. Love the ambiance in the main dining room with the wood-burning fireplace.
We really enjoyed Sabros! The filet was very tasty and tender and the salmon Oscar was to die for!
We were seated by the fireplace which allowed us to hear the musician in the bar but still have a quiet conversation. Crab cakes, wedge salad and pork were excellent. Coffee and Crème Brule finished off an outstanding evening.
Lovely place, world-class servers, spectacular food. Music from Jimmy Stadler added a wonderful warmth to the ambiance. Will definitely go back again!
Excellent food! Great live music. We had a blast!
Wanted a cozy dinner for the last night of our honeymoon, and got a recommendation from a local artist (Pat Woodall) that Sabroso would fit the bill. It was everything we could ask for. Cozy fireside seating, creative and tasty food at a very reasonable price, and wonderful live music (Brother Coyote). I have already recommended it to those inquiring about our trip.
Good meal, good service, nice atmosphere especially with fire in the fireplace.
We were in Taos,NM and looking for something good and not necessarily salsa laden. Open Table did not seem to have many restaurants, but Sabroso was listedand I pulled up the menu. I was floored that there were fresh seafood items and fresh oysters among other things. There we good choices and good reviews.
We were not disappointed. I had a beef rib in a wonderful sauce. Another had the shrimp and grits, and my Colorado friend saw liver and onions and that made up his mind. You never see liver and onions on a menu he exclaimed.
The food was delicious and well prepared. There was live music in the bar which was the perfect level in the dining area in an old adobe structure. With a nice fire, we had a fine meal and I would recommend it to everyone. Finally, the chef appeared and had a conversation with each table of diners. Nice touch.
The restaurant is between old town Taos and the ski mountain, high desert and lots of stars. Far enough out that you can see the Milky Way, another benefit we desired.
We love going to Sabroso for special occasions. Just our appetizer, dinner, coffee and dessert for 2 tallied to $107. Fortunately neither of us drink alcoholic beverages. They had a fantastic drink and wine menu for those who do!
We reserved an outdoor table which is where live music is played and there is an outdoor bar as well, the outdoor area is covered and sheltered from wind so chances are until very late in the fall you can enjoy being outdoors.
Our service was fantastic -very attentive without being invasive. Just as we like it.
I come once a year on the Sunday after Michael Hearne's Bigbarn Dance! The food, service and music is always excellent!
The food and setting were excellent and would tempt my return despite the outright neglect from the hungover waiter and robot wait staff. Ask about prices of the “specials” before ordering. Although delicious and cooked perfectly, $50 is steep for game meat.
Only downside was that our GPS took us to the wrong destination! But worth a call to the restaurant to iron things out. What a perfect place for patio dining. Fabulous service, amazing food, great bar, singer-guitar player who kept on keeping on after the kitchen closed. One of those unforgettable evenings.
We LOVE Sobroso whether inside or outside dining. Wait staff is excellent and the menu is very good...We make a point to dine here on Wednesday’s and eat out on the patio so that we hear Jimmy Sandler’s music! We always bring out of town guests here for the ambiance and the food.
Tucked away outside Arroyo Seco, New Mexico, this lovely restaurant is a great place to hear live music on a Friday night outdoors in a lovely setting surrounded by plum trees on the property while enjoying drinks and delicious homemade dishes. Service was exceptional, too.
The food was very good. However I brought a recently purchased $100 gift card and after presenting it to the server and manager, she couldn't figure out why their system had trouble accepting it. It was very embarrassing and I did not have the funds to pay for it since I just paid cash for a bottle of wine. Luckily my friend had enough funds to pay for the meal. So I still have their gift card, waiting for a reply from them about the gift card. My advice for a place like this is to present a gift card before you order anything!
