Everything about our experience at SABOR was fantastic! Our server was top notch (sorry I didn’t get his name), the food was amazing and cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were great and we left feeling really full!! The guitar player on the Saturday evening was just the icing on the cake and really set the ambience. We will most definitely be returning! Thank you SABOR for making our anniversary meal so special

We had a totally delightful experience during Downtown Dining Week. Two of our party enjoyed the three course dinner: a creamy lobster bisque, a traditionally cooked seafood paella, and a good sized portion of cherry cheesecake. The other two shared the spectacular Family Dinner: oysters on the half shell, Piri Piri shrimp, and oysters and clams as the appetizer course, perfectly cooked wild king salmon and sea bream with a lobster risotto for the main and a delicious trio of spicy chocolate mousse, cherry cheesecake and creme brûlée for dessert. We chose a slightly sweet but full bodied white wine from Portugal to accompany our meal. Fabulous.

Definitely worth the trip. The lobster bisque super delicious as was the wild boar 3 ways. The whipped cheesecake with passion fruit coulis very nice. 5 stars if only the paella was better. It was over salted and could have had better flavour. Service top notch. I will return.

Okay food, poor service
After a long wait at the entry for someone to seat us for our reservation, we looked at the menu choices, made a red wine order to pair with my wife's' Beef Bourguignon, and then later told the beef was not available, only fish, but, no, the restaurant would not take back the hearty red wine. After insisting that the wine was no longer a pairing for anything they somehow found an order of the beef dish for her. Soup arrived but, oh, the buns are in the oven and not available at the appropriate time. When they did show up they were frozen in the middle.The fish dishes were okay.
Not a good showing for this restaurant for the Downtown Dining Week promotion.

Excellent, as always! Chef Lino never, ever disappoints. The seafood paella was outstanding, and the "Three Boars" - Black Iberico Pork done three ways, is my new favorite dish. Attentive service, eclectic vibe, without being too noisy.Definitely on of the top restaurants in the city over a long time.

My favorite restaurant in Edmonton. Great food, great atmosphere. Service was pretty good this visit, not outstanding as it normally is but still good. The live music adds a fun touch. The cocktails are also way above average. I would eat here every week if I lived closer.

Loud bass noise from below, but there was beautiful live music in the restaurant that preserved the ambience. Great food. The kitchen staff had our food out in record time! Especially given it was prime time on a Saturday. Management had a nice presence on the floor. Highly recommend.

Walking into the restaurant the host is not that welcoming the gentleman at the host stand should smile and at the very least welcome you.
I do recommend this restaurant often to friends usually warn them about the it is not that welcoming.
The dinner was absolutely amazing.
The service was good.

The Lobster Risotto with halibut and sable fish was delicious and the fish cooked to perfection.
Two at our table shared the family style 3 course dinner which included oysters, lobster risotto, halibut and sable fish, followed by a trio of desserts. All beautifully presented. I even tried a raw oyster and will definitely do it again.
