Our waiter was extremely friendly and courteous. The food was delicious and the music and ambiance was fabulous. My parents received a cheesecake on the house for their anniversary which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Everyone had an amazing time! We will definitely be returning.

The food absolutely wonderful. The ambiance left me wanting though. The live music was in the main dining hall which was problematic for wanting to have conversation. The servers had a great demeanor but service was also rather slow - 30 minute wait for appetizer and another 40 minutes for the main. Overall, plan to be there 2 hours if you order appetizers. If you want to have conversation, ask for the room away from the live music.

We were here last fall and decided to venture back. It was a very nice evening that saemrtes with three appetizers. Piripiri shrimp, calamari on a bed of greens and sea urchin broschetta. A great trio!
The main was a lobster risotto topped with a filet of halibut and filet of salmon for each of us. The finale was three desserts, creme broulet, cheese cake with sour cherry sauce and chocolate mousse with a bit of heat. It was a very nice meal and Pamela our server was helpful, informative and friendly. This is what nights out are supposed to be like!

Sabor has been on our Dining Wish List for a couple of years now and we finally took the opportunity to try it after a ballet matinee. We loved the ambiance immediately - the lighting and noise level is perfect for a date night! Our server was Darren and he was a key part of our great experience! Knowledgeable about the menu and helped us to make great food selections. The food was delicious! We shared everything which included a couple of tapas, appetizer, main dish and dessert. Everything was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. We can't wait to return and have already (with Darren's help) picked out a few items to try on our next visit!

Our server was great. We shared the piri piri prawns, 5 tomato salad and Caesar salad. For the main I had the lobster risotto which was delicious (and impossible to finish). It’s nice that there is taster sized desserts so we could still try the cheesecake - our server steered us to the cherry and port cheesecake which was very good. Overall a really good meal in a nice relaxing atmosphere

Fantastic restaurant. The setting was dim and relaxed, the service was attentive and knowledgable, and the food was outstanding. My fiancee and I shared the family style meal, starting with seared scallops, then Piri Piri marinated shrimp with garlic aioli, moved on to filets of Arctic char and haddock atop a beautiful lobster risotto, and finished with samples of three desserts. The cocktails were fantastic, and though the price of the meal was more than we typically spend, it was entirely worth it. We will definitely be back!

Sabor presents itself well with live music that creates a nice dining ambience where you can visit and enjoy an evening with family, a date or couples. The food was very good with a good range of options from seafood, pasta and red meat. For Edmonton at the higher end comparable to the better restaurants in town. I would recommend you try it for sure.

We went there before a ballet at the Jub. There was also a concert at Rogers nearby. The restaurant was very busy but it didn’t take away from the quality of service or food that we got. We were sat and served very promptly. Our servers name was Pamela. She was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine that paired well with our entires. She did not stop going from the time we got there till when we left. She ensured that all of her tables had everything they needed and would check back regularly to make sure our dishes came out perfect. You could see her other tables we’re enjoying their experience as much as we were. We will definitely be back!

Since 2011, my husband and I always come to celebrate our birthdays and anniversary. They all fall within a week of each other.

We always want to try all the items on the menu but never stray from the seafood platter. It’s our favourite place in Edmonton for seafood and we feel it’s the best place in the city for amazing seafood.

We were a party of 5 and 3 had never eaten at the restaurant before. There are now 5 people who will eat there again. The server was absolutely wonderful-pleasant, helpful, attentive, knowledgeable with great timing. It was nice to bring our own wine though corkage at $25/bottle was pricey. Thank you for providing a great evening of food and time with friends.

Sea bass with risotto: fish portion was dull and lifeless, but risotto was good. Black paella was only fair, rice stodgy and did not seem freshly cooked. In fact both entrees appeared in less than 5 minutes revealing that none of meal was freshly cooked. Tiramisu (or Sabor's interpretation of it) was very ordinary, oddly watery and disappointing. A Portuguese-style custard was far better and the only truly satisfactory part of the meal. Would not return.

Our second time to Sabor, thought our friends would enjoy as we had on our first visit. Had the same server and found him to be totally indifferent at best and rude at worst. Should have left little or no tip, he was lucky to get 10%. Certainly cast a pall on the evening.
The food was mixed, appetizer salad of beets and fish was declared very tasty. The Portuguese soup was mediocre- noodles were conspicuous by their absence, very bland overall. The lobster risotto was sadly lacking in the lobster component, for $32 was most disappointing. The arctic char was deemed very good as was the octopus dinner.
The hit and miss nature of the dinner would preclude another visit.

Amazing food as always. My only gripe is the lack of selection for cocktails compared to the competition out there. Offer some innovative drinks and we won’t have to come for dinner but go elsewhere for drinks. Quick and Easy Suggestion... get away from crushed ice in drinks. It waters down the alcohol and forces a customer to drink it fast and not enjoy it. Switch to large cubes. Food is top notch tho and in my opinion a good value price wise. Thanks
