Sabroso Ratings and Reviews
Not sure I will be going back... I am sort of a two time looser with this place. I suspect, for Taos locals this place is maybe the best place in Town and the staff takes care of them well. But only visiting Taos a couple times a year, I keep getting bad service (glacial speed, wrong orders) and the food has some serious missed (rissoto should not be crunchy).
We had an early reservation and when we were approached by the server she acted as if it was an inconvenience. She did not inform us at the time that she listed the specials that items had been removed from the menu. So we tried to order something from the menu that was not being offered and she became upset that we found it irritating.
We ordered lamb and filet mignon. The filet was good except the sauce that they covered it with and it was very bland. The lamb was OK, it was cooked well but a little tasteless. The artichoke hearts that was served with the lamb were interesting. You know those little jars of artichoke hearts packed in vinegar that you see at the store. Well it tasted like they had taken those hearts and grilled them so all you could taste was the vinegar.
Sorry, we were looking forward to a nice evening with good food and good service and we received neither.
Secluded restaurant and bar in small town of Arroyo Seco about 7 miles north of Taos. I had a dinner special of sea scallops surrounded by tasty polenta and a ring of delicious, crispy, flash-fried spinach. My vegetarian friends chose spicy tomato chipotle soup and sides of asparagus and potatoes. The Silver Coin margarita made with fresh lime juice, premium tequila, and cointreau was pricy, but delicious. After dinner we moved to the cozy bar to listen to live music (6:30 - 9:30 pm). Lovely evening.
We visited Sabroso as a result of recommendations from folks we spoke to while visiting down town Taos. We were very disappointing with the food. They use high quality ingredients but lacked flavor. While my New York Steak (nightly special and $42.00) was tender it lacked any seasoning. My husbands ribs should have fallen off the bone and didn't. The BBQ sauce was lack luster. Tasted like Catchup base with only a little touch up. All in all the cook that night must have been the "B" team. At least that's my hope.
We had been to Sabroso before to listen to the amazing Jimmy Stadler, but on this occasion, we came to dine! We were early for our reservation, but the hostess seated us right away nonetheless. Our server was patient and helpful in every way! My husband had the Bison Short Ribs - oh my goodness!!!! ~ absolute perfection! For dessert, the chef prepared Duck Egg Cardamon Crème Brulee. The best thing I have ever had! The patio is wonderful. We enjoyed our cocktails without feeling rushed to order. Such a great experience.
I would recommend it only for the food this visit - - that's because there was no vibrant bar scene, no music (as planned), not many people - apparently the night before they had been packed. I think it must have been a ticketed music event because when making reservations that night was not even on their calendar. I have loved going to Sabroso when visiting Taos. We love the patio seating in good weather, their food is amazing, and the music very nice and not distracting; however this time there was not much going on. So it was disappointing. However, we will try it again!!!
It's a beautiful restaurant and we're happy we tried it. The atmosphere is so nice and our waiter was wonderful. We felt our entrees were mediocre, though, for such a lovely restaurant. Nice presentation, but the flavors weren't as special as we hoped they would be. I would definitely recommend Sabroso for drinks and appetizers, which were all delicious, and quite special.
Second visit this summer. Both trips equally great with the exception of slow service (very friendly though) on the first trip. That was corrected on the second visit.
Both visits fetchered Jimmy Stadler on the patio. He's a great singer and guitarist.
We were pleasantly surprised by the great food and energy in. this little jewel of a restaurant out on the high desert floor! The food was excellent and the service was good. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice little band playing country music with plenty of dancing! All in all this place was nice we will defiantly plan to go again if we have the chance.
We loved our dining experience at Sabroso! The appetizer crab cakes were prepared in an authentic New England style. The regular menu pork tenderloin and special scallop dish each had complex flavors and were delightful. The huge scallops were served in a bed of very tasty corn polenta, all surrounded by a wreath of flash-fried spinach, a unique prep of a standby veggie that presented like a chip. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
Lovely outside dining with friendly servers who were working hard due to short staff. Also food was running out due to holiday weekend. However I can recommend the portabello appetizer and the crab cakes and sweet potato fries and key lime pie. Definitely sit outside if you can.
Maybe it was an off night, but the service was extremely slow and the waiter did not seem to know his job, the portions were small, and the shrimp and salmon were very over cooked. We pointed out the overcooked food right away, but the waiter never offered to take the food back, nor did he adjust the price. At the end of the meal the waiter also told us that the kitchen had run out of food and they had had to cancel a number of dinner reservations. This was on the evening of July 3, a holiday weekend. When we return to Taos we will give Sabrosa's another chance, as it is a lovely place and has a good reputation.
This was our second visit to Sabroso, the first nearly a year ago during a previous visit to Taos. We liked our first experience but this one was even better. Just great food off a menu of many choices, including several specials. Wonderful outdoor seating, very helpful and friendly wait person, and they can make an excellent margarita. Definitely worth the drive.
Valentine's Day in a town we'ld only been to once before. Was able to get a reservation, prompt seating and nice staff. We went for the 12 oz. rib that was very generous - closer to a pound. Came out cooked as ordered. House made ice cream for dessert. Good value, local ingredients (they cut their meat on site) and nice staff. Made for a nice Valentine dinner with my sweetheart.
It was ok. Ordered the porkchop, which was extremely fatty, unseasoned and cooked medium rare, even though I asked for it medium well. The chicken fried steak was tough. The mashed potatoes were outstanding.
This was our first visit...not sure we want to go back.
The food was mixed, from a great sea bass special to a poor steak salad (the salad wasn't good but the steak was very good). Ribs were in between. Caesar salad was unappetizing. Calamari was a bit odd but good -- dipping sauces were mediocre. Ambience was lovely. I guess go with the specials or the grill. All in all disappointing for what was intended to be a festive thank you. I won't go back. There are better restaurants in Taos.
We tried a variety of food options and found them to be average at best. The beet salad was particularly poor seemingly undercooked and sour (I usually greatly enjoy. beet salads). We chose the restaurant based on the online menu but found that most of the items we wanted were no longer available (such as the Cornish hen confit).
