Excellent food and service. While the décor was very nice, as the evening went on the noise level was so high we could barely here each other talking.

I had read the restaurant's very good reviews and was excited to try it. We are in Edmonton several times a year and like to try it's wonderful restaurants. While the main courses were accompanied by generous portions of risotto, there were no veggies included; this seemed odd for a fine dining restaurant. Also, the service was extremely slow. After placing our orders fairly early on, we had a very long wait between appetizers and main courses. While our server was friendly and professional, attentiveness was lacking. Water glasses were left empty for quite a while before being refilled, a cocktail was delivered only after our appetizers were mostly finished, then another long wait before our bill was delivered. This was somewhat understandable during the earlier part of the evening but not so much later, when the restaurant was mostly empty. This made for a somewhat disappointing evening when compared to other places we've tried.

Excellent food (we had the Chef's meal - 3 appies, 2 mains and a dessert trio), fantastic service (Richard was our server). Overall a great experience!
One semi-negative comment - the coffee was pretty crappy in comparison to the rest of the meal.

Outstanding overall experience! The food was out of this world. My husband and I ordered so much food and we ate everything, plus an order of the piri-piri shrimps that the server recommended us. I have to mention the prawn and scallop ceviche (very flavourful and fresh) and the grilled octopus (without a doubt the most tender I’ve had in my life). It was served with an olive tapenade and let me say this : my husband hates olives and he went crazy on the whole dish!! I can’t believe it! We had a fabulous 2014 Chardonnay from Santa Barbara and a glass of Late Harvest Sémillon from Portugal to finish with our dessert. Experience was great from start to finish. Totally worth the prices. We actually drove 4 hours and back to eat there (we wanted a nice dinner and we live in Jasper) and our dinner totally held up! Marlon was very kind, although we would have preferred a little bit more attention (there was a couple next to us that were more dressed up than we were and slightly older) and he gave much more attention to them as he did with us, probably assuming he would make more sales with them than with us (even though it turned out not to be the case). For example, when it was time to pay, the server just dropped the card machine on the table and left us alone while he went to talk to the other couple. You see I am a professional sommelier with lots of serving experience (including Michelin in France) and that is the first thing every server should remember : the first and the last moments with the client are the most important. The moment to say goodbye and thank you for the visit are very easy, basic elements for a good service. So for that I was a bit disappointed, which explains a few of the 4* instead of 5, but everything else was flawless. We will definitely recommend, and hopefully return! Thank you!

We were able to book a table with less than 2 hours notice on a Saturday night. Granted we did choose a late time. BEST SEAFOOD in the city! No contest! We had the 4 course chefs meal. It's a bit pricey but worth it for the food and service. I recommend Sabor to anyone who loves sea food and wants to have a high end night out!

Very good food and good value. We had the 'set' meal which was very good, but just a bit too much food, left us feeling a bit 'full'.
Look forward very much to returning and trying something else.

What a fabulous place. My husband and I went to celebrate our 2nd anniversary and were wowed by everything. My cousin had suggested Sabor and it did not disappoint. We had the family style 3 course meal and everything was delicious. We would hands down be coming back to try the other options in the menu!! If you love crème brûlée....you must try theirs..
