We were a challenging table of seven, four adults and three children, four of the people have extreme dairy allergies and one other orange plus mint allergies. We were comfortable ordering from the menu and having items adjusted for our concerns. The waiter was attentive and professional, the food as always wonderful. My husband and I have used Sabor for special occasions and entertaining visiting relatives with glowing results each time.

We hade our ten year anniversary here July 17th. My husband and I are very pleased with the food and services there. However, I think if they offer us an anniversary dessert, that will be a nice touch. (Which they didn't) Anyways, a nice restaurant in Edmonton downtown. Visitors from Vancouver BC

We’ve been several times over the years, this was the first time my son has been there and we brought him and his girlfriend for his birthday. We were once again completely blown away. Service was top shelf, the vibe in the room is awesome and it feels like a special night out everytime. We shared four tapas plates to start, entrees for each and shared desserts. Everyone shared a bite of our dishes and we couldn’t agree what was the best. Rarely does a restaurant get everything right, but Sabor scores 5 stars across the board. Service is professional and courteous, the tapas menu and raw bar are off the hook and the quality and attention to detail on every dish is beyond expectation. The cheesecake and port cherries should be on everyone’s bucket list. Well done chef Lino and team for making this one of Western Canada’s top eateries.

My wifes appy took 20 minutes to arrive, I ordered the Lobster Rissotto, Lobster was overcooked and chewy.
Also got a Old Fashioned from bar and came with cubed ice, not large block or ball, makes a difference!
Dessert was excellent!

Get the family style dinner. Or if not, get the Portuguese custard and the cayenne chocolate mousse. You will not be sorry. My mother who usually hates restaurant desserts loved them too.

We got the seafood platter, it was good but the lobster was disappointing. We sat for about 10-15 minutes before our waitress came over to get our drink order. When we were done eating we waited another 15 minutes for her to clear our plates and ask if we wanted more drinks. It was just disappointing when you’re paying that type of money for a dinner.

My goal was to impress my spouse, because he enjoys food, especially good food. And he was beyond impressed. He had the Three Boars, and I had the Lobster risotto, and it was delicious. Every bite was better than the one before. We will be back to enjoy the Chef's Family Dinner.

I made reservations online a few days in advance for a table for two. On the evening of the reservation my date and I arrived on time only to be kept waiting at the front for 30 minutes. The food and server were excellent. The following day I receive an email from open table (the online reservation site) saying I didn't not honor my reservation. Despite the friendly server and great food and drinks I'm giving this establishment 2 stars for keeping me waiting and besmirching my good name... figure it out Sabor 👎🏽

It was our first time here. We were looking to enjoy a nice seafood dinner for my wife's birthday. Wow, did I pick the right place. Food, service, ambiance, everything was fantastic. Come hungry, you will leave satisfied, I guarantee you. We ordered the family style dinner for four. We walked out with our bellies full and a smile on our faces. We will be back for sure. Great experience Sabor! Thank you.

Second time at Sabor's as we just loved it the first time! The food was still fabulous - had the 3 course meal- but unfortunately I think the server may have been new as she didn't provide the exceptional service we had the first time we ate here, even though it was extremely busy. This time there was hardly a soul when we arrived. I felt I was training the server as common sense seemed to be lacking. E.g. I had to ask for bread and butter, she gave us a bowl and wipes long after we had finished the shellfish and subsequently realized it was too late so promptly removed them, we didn't get any serving utensils for the calamari and shrimp, etc. The worst part was that she brought me the bill and machine about a minute after we finished our dessert (I kid you not!) although it was evident my guest and I were having a good conversation. We were rushed out of a fine dining restaurant in about an hour. Also missed the live entertainment -I had hoped to hear at least one tune. Oh well. Will return for the food but hope the service improves. Perhaps new staff should shadow the experienced ones. Thanks.
