We had dinner there at the weekend, it was very nice. The sea food was excellent, the service was great and the guitar player playing popular songs was also a great feature. We would be happy to come back in the future!

Incredible food , definitely one of the best restaurants in Edmonton. Freshest seafood , highly recommend the family style option as it features the catch of the day . 50% of the experience however is the service and it was beyond disappointing this time around . We normally get amazing professional service when we dine at Sabor and our waiter today was well below par and made our dinner experience uncomfortable. From sly comments to attitude , I wish I had requested someone different for our table . The 2 star review is for the service alone and hopefully we are lucky enough to get someone else next time as we absolutely love the food there.

The food was excellent. My only reason for giving the service a 3 was the fact we ordered 4 appetizers for the two of us. We told the waiter this is what we were doing instead if each ordering an entree and we had lots of time. He brought all 4 entrees at the same time so by the time we got around to the 3 and 4 they were cold and also it made us feel very rushed. The restaurant was not busy at all when we were there.

Probably one of the coldest waiters I’ve ever come across which totally took away from a special occasion dinner. It’s rare that people, especially Albertans find it acceptable to treat others with that much disdain, but apparently our server missed that memo. I’ve had plenty of meals at Sabor and have spent in the thousands over the years, but we won’t be back.

Great hospitality, amazing food, ambience is perfect for a night out with the right person, or if you have a dinner party planned they have sectioned off private areas as well. Will continue to return for the amazing seafood. Highly recommend the lobster risotto.

We'd made a reservation but still had to wait over 30 minutes to get a table; they were nice enough to prosecco as we waited but perhaps a bench would be a good addition to the waiting area.
The energy in the restaurant was incredible, everyone seemed to be enjoying their food and company and the place was buzzing.
We were finally seated next to the guitarist which we thought would be an issue however he played at a level loud enough for us to to distinctly hear his songs but we didn't have to yell to hear each other speak.
Our server was very attentive and pleasant, though he was clearly busy we never felt rushed neither did we have to look for him to order things.
The food... the food... not enough words to describe how tasty the food was! We shared the grilled calamari appetizer and it was a hefty portion - good enough to be a meal on its own! The steak and lobster was packed with flavour and incredibly juice. We shared the tiramisu dessert - another good idea as it was a hefty delicious slice that we barely finished.

Overall Sabor more than made up for the long wait and we're looking forward to returning with our parents as we're positive they'll fall in love as quickly as we have.

From beginning to end the food & Service was fantastic. Three of us indulged on the family style option. The grilled jumbo prawns with piri piri was beyond tasty. The lobster risotto was light, flavourful, with just the right amount of lobster bits. Our server was attentive, conversational, and charismatic! Will definitely be back!

Usually great service. Waitress was quite distracted and walked away from our table multiple times, once in the middle of explaining our dishes. Filled water glasses once. Brought us the wrong bill at the end of our evening. However, she was friendly and informed on the menu.

Was not worth the money, Not complaining, but Food OK, service OK. Was placed at a table by washroom to start even though reservation said special 21st birthday - they did move us when requested. Restaurant is good but not worth over $400 we spent for 4 people. Would go to bar or just order apps if we go next time.

I was surprised that we were not greeted and assigned a table, which was okay we got to pick our table. we were met at the table and my chair was pulled out and we were given menus immediately. When I am fine dining I like to take my time between drinks and courses and found everything arrived right behind each other. Most people love that so no complaints. The food was excellent and portions were just right.

From the minute the four of us walked into the restaurant we felt we were transported into another world of friendly people, lovely music and delicious food. We all forgot about the outside world and any issues that might be happening in our lives. Our server was the best and funniest guy we have ever had. LOVED the food. Everything was plated perfectly and the tastes were out of this world. Thank you for this experience. We will be back. 🍷👍🏻

The food, service and atmosphere were all amazing. Despite there being quite a few people packed into a small space, the acoustics give you the feeling of private conversation. We split the seafood platter along with a ceviche to start and the custard dish for dessert, all of the seafood was fresh and high quality. I'll definitely be back. A great spot for celebration.
