SABOR Restaurant provides a rustic yet elegant atmosphere and a menu rich in European tradition—Portuguese, Spanish, French & Italian—in the heart of Downtown and the ICE District.

OceanWise certified, we offer Edmonton’s best, most-sustainable seafood menu as well as a meat & vegetarian options.

Professional staff, a trim but superlative wine list, hand-crafted cocktails, and SABOR’s menu & atmosphere make it the perfect spot—be it in evening wear before the opera, a suit before the big meeting, or in jeans hanging out with friends.

Friday & Saturday evenings feature live music by one of Edmonton’s talented local musicians.

BODEGA Tapas Bar is a casual setting seated on a walk-in basis only. A great stop before or after a movie or show at one of the nearby theatres, BODEGA serves authentic tapas, our signature Sangria, and superb wine & cocktails.

As one if the Very Few (sigh) late night options for dining, Sabor is wonderful, exciting food, excellent, knowledgeable staff with helpful information. Family style dining looks great, hope to try this selection next time.

We had an amazing meal at Sabor, I highly recommend the family special, if you like seafood, and they also have a great selection of beverages. The only disappointing part of the evening was that nobody acknowledged our special occasion, that we were asked to provide by OpenTable. Normally, this wouldn’t be on our mind, but we heard people around us celebrating birthdays and work events, and it would have been nice to be part of that atmosphere. 4/5

We came for my dad’s, my brother’s and my birthdays and it was fantastic. All of our food was great from the bruschetta and caesar salad to start, the gnocchi, steak ‘n lobster and fish for dinner and the tiramisu for dessert. Our server was wonderful and knowledgeable about the menu. Will definitely be back.

We were told we needed to try out Sabor and we were so glad we did. The seafood in the paella was so fresh and the flavour in the beef and pasta was delicious. We would like to return when we are back in town to try the evening tapas!

Service was very efficient and quick. Our server was very informative and nice. He catered to all our needs and gave the birthday girl a great surprise with a candle for her dessert. The food was outstanding, tapas are a great portion size. The wine menu is great for the pairing of all the Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. Would definitely come back the next time I visit Edmonton and would recommend to others. Thank you for the great experience.

We were a table of six celebrating a birthday. We ordered the chefs plate for all of us. The food groups arrived in timely fashion and the plates were hot. All dishes were excellent and bountiful. I even had lobster risotto left for next day to feed two. The atmosphere was jubilant and the noise level was acceptable. This was our third visit here and the restaurant and employees are very consistent.

We went to Sabor's for our son's 30th birthday celebration. Even though the restaurant was full, where we were seated felt quiet and private. The service was exceptional. Of the four main courses ordered, three were 5 out of 5. The pork/chorizo paella was overdone and dry and contained quite a number of small sharp bones. All the seafood dishes were excellent! The bartender and bar staff were also excellent as we had drinks beforehand.

The appetizer was fantastic (mussels, clams, shrimp). Some excellent wines to choose from. The main dish (family style Cod and Arctic Char with Risotto) was good. I felt like something was missing from the main dish (perhaps some sort of vegetable for balance). Love the ambiance.

Fancy enough for a special night out. Casual enough that you don’t feel out of place en route to a rock show at Rogers Place. Affordable enough that it’s a way better option than your higher level chains. Being a Vancouver-ite living in YEG, I miss top shelf seafood, but Sabor will fill that void.

Staff at Sabor are amazing! Food is good and cocktails are yummy. I have business lunches there, but be aware that parking is difficult at noon hour and it can be very noisy at noon as it is quite popular. However, the noise often helps to mask conversations as well so also a benefit :-).

We love Sabor! It is one of our favorite places for business lunch or dinner before a concert or game at Rogers Place. The décor and food are excellent and the service never misses. There are many items to choose from, though our preference is the flavorful seafood offerings, top notch.

parking near the restaurant and accessibility to restaurant is challenging for people with mobility challenges. Greeting patrons at the door could be improved with a smile instead of what resembles a scowl. Our server could have been more informative about menu as previous visit. I've been to this restaurant 3 times this past year. However, in spite of these issues that could set an unpleasant dining experience the food was delicious.
