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.

Waiter was efficient and polite however could not hear him well as he spoke very softly.

Ordered steak and lobster and the lamb dish. Food was good, however next time I would order the seafood instead....as i was told it was amazing .

The only thing I would suggest, would be if you want to keep it as an upscale dining area, I would request that people remove their baseball caps while in the dining area. Baseball caps should be worn in the lounge only as looking around at the people with the baseball caps on while ordering a $48 meal takes away from the Ambiance and the experience.

Bar none one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. I was dining with my family and we all loved it and talked about how impressed we were all the way home. If I don't ever go to another restaurant but Sabor that would be fine with me. Excellent.

I've been to Bodega countless amount of times, but never to Sabor. This time we decided to venture up the stairs for our anniversary to find that Sabor was quite lovely. Very tasteful menu, amazing service & the cosiest atmosphere. We will be returning for sure!

The service was very good and the food was delicious. However, I do think that the food was somewhat overpriced - particularly the main entrees.

However, overall, a nice evening!

My wife and I came to Sabor on September 15, 2018 to celebrate our birthdays (hers was on the 13th, mine 15th) and we were uncertain as to what to order. We immediately loved the ambience, and the waitress was exceptionally friendly. She recommended the sampler dinner for two and we agreed. The food was outstanding, the price was reasonable, and the finishing touch of a shot of port each was over the top. Suffice it to say, may be our new favourite restaurant. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent, but the service was not as good as it should be considering the price that you pay. Everything is basically $50 a plate.

Food- delicious ( mussels cooked to perfection in the dish, scallops a touch over done, great flavours)

Add more menu items that are not seafood. Tough to go and have only seafood specials when you don't like it.

We got the ‘Family Sharing’ option for two people. And the value for the amount of food was impeccable! Would 10/10 recommend this option. In fact, we convinced the table next to us to go with this option.

We are 3 couples who have celebrated our anniversaries together for 40 years. Sabor was pronounced our best joint celebration yet! We all had the 3 course seafood platter family style, and absolutely everything was delicious. We were seated in the “elevator shaft” which was a perfect alcove to hear ourselves talk and yet feel part of the festive dining room atmosphere. Our server was excellent too, very knowledgeable and attentive, in spite of a busy evening.

Had my sons birthday there; waitress went above and beyond and with dessert put a candle on the teramasu and tho she didnt sing happy birthday, the candle added a special touch. I was a regular to the restaurant years ago, and was so happy to be in a warm and freindly environment with great food and great service. Five gold stars to the team; it still upholds an excellent reputation.
