Exceptionally slow and inattentive service, overcooked and/or flavourless dishes, ceviche with no whiff of citrus, a virtually riceless paella which would make an Iberian embarassed and a strangely neutered GM who had to call the owner to deal with any issue. Won't be back.

I was disappointed in the service. I was meeting friends who I had not seen in a while and while we were catching up, we were constantly asked were we ready to order. I thought, if menus were placed to the side, this was a signal. We did not signal. My friends ordered the chef's menu after pestering by server. They enjoyed the chef's menu, but it was difficult to mesh with my order. I ordered the lobster risotto. The risotto was a big disappointment.... Not creamy. Too al dente Very little lobster identified. . Plus I had to wait too long for it. (if they had given me a chance to order an appy, would not have been so bad - meshing with chef's menu). But the desserts were HEAVENLY Congrats. This saved the meal. Otherwise would not go back. I am not sure whether to recommend or not. I will give it another chance, but traveled a long way to be there.... from a Gulf Island in BC. You know the place where the mussels come from.

The food and service were excellent. Price wise, I’d liken Sabor to the Keg, but with a wider variety of food options in a smaller, more homie setting. In my case, I have never had Octopus that wasn’t rubbery, yet the way they prepared it tasted closer to a crab or lobster. It was fantastic.

Me and my friend went to Sabor on Friday night and called to make reservations. Our server Merlot was fantastic, he was very knowledgeable about the wine and food menu and make our dining experience one to remember. The food was 10/10 and I have their catch of the day with lobster risotto. Would definitely recommend to friends, family and co-workers.

Awesome place, as usual. Sabor needs to come up with a new menu as it seems that, at least, the family style option is redundent. Besides that, it’s a great, great place for an exquisite supper.

Went here for a business lunch and it was great. Not too loud that you couldn't speak to the person across the table. Our waitress was quick with water and being there. The food came fast and was very good. They have a rotating specials menu that is on top of the already great menu and it's absolutely fantastic.
Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking downtown.

We have visited this restaurant for many years. Mostly for milestone celebrations but also just to drop in for a bite. The food is ALWAYS exquisite. You will never go wrong with this restaurant. The service is one of the most professional in all of Edmonton. Staff is attentive but not invasive so to disrupt your evening.

We have had large family gatherings and intimate dinners at Sabor and always come away feeling its even better than the last time we were there.

Thank you Chris, Chef Lino and staff. You are all contributors to another outstanding experience for our family.

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
