One of our favourite Edmonton restaurants. We have never been disappointed and we've been going to Sabor for years -- for business lunches as well as family occasions. Great food, great service, not too loud or overly intimate, just right.

Great food, good service and lovely ambiance. I will be coming back and bring people so they can experience the closest thing to Spain we have come across. The food meat and cheese was amazing, followed by an amazing main for both my wife and I. There was a guy playing guitar creating a lovely ambiance.

We have been to their annual seafood fest in the past and this years won't disappoint if you have gone in the past. We did the family style and would totally recommend this if going out with friends that love seafood. We also ordered the steamed mussels as these have always been a favorite as an extra. Lots of food and great value at $55/person.

What can I say about this restaurant.. one word AMAZING! Our second time being back, the first time was a medium group of us the second time we went back it was just to celebrate my boyfriend and I's anniversary. We knew we liked the food and service last time and wanted to go back again and experience it with a more special romantic feel. The food is always exceptional, and cooked perfectly with so much wonderful flavour! The menu described the dishes wonderfully, but the icing on the cake was how kind and attentive our waiter was. He was there when we needed him but never had to call on him, he recommend an amazing wine pairing for my boyfriends dish, a delicious black paella. He was clearly happy to serve us and enjoyed his job which is always a pleasure to see. We had a wonderful time and we can't wait to go back, we woke up the next day dreaming of the meal we had just had the night before. If you're looking for exceptional service and flavourful meals with a romantic atmosphere then I would definitely recommend Sabor!!

This restaurant is seriously amazing! My husband and I went here for our 2nd wedding anniversary and the food was spectacular! The appetizer and tapas portions were much bigger than we expected and they were delicious! The service was also the best that I've ever had. We can't wait to go back and try more items on the menu!

Food had excellent presentation. Overall taste was as ordered and as per menu.Service was outstanding. The service staff were neat. Clean. We attired. Understood the menu. Daily special was explained. Upsell on the menu was done. Coffee was acceptable. Overall ambience was excellent. I expected a higher end service and was rewarded with such. One complaint. I would prefer a buffer wall between the service area and the main dining area.

I have finally seen what the fuss is about. SABOR is excellent, the food and service was outstanding.
If you like seafood this place is the place to be. The food was flavorful and not overcooked no rubbery octopus and squid here. The Tapas are top notch!

The price paid for this experience was definitely worth it!

I cannot wait to go back.

Had an excellent appetizer board of cheese and cured meats with olives on the side. Should have stppped there but also ordered a lobster risotto which was perfectly seasoned for my taste. Partner had piri piri chicken which was also tasty and came with two types of piri piri sauces. Servers were attentive despite full house.

Ordered about 10 tapas, 4 entrees, 3 desserts (for a party of 7). I was extremely disappointed with the service. I understand it was somewhat busy, but we waited over 20 minutes just for someone to say hello to us at the table we were seated in. Definitely would not return here -- especially for my birthday. The tapas we ordered were quite delicious. The entrees however were overall quite bland and mediocre (we ordered lobster risotto, gnocchi, piri piri chicken, and a seafood soup of some sort). The desserts were good, nothing outstanding though.

Overpriced. Payed $58 for lobster ( no sides. ... lobster only. Paid $12 for a Caesar. Also many items we tried to order did not have in stock. Service was great.

The food was good, lots of volume of food, enough for us to package some and make it two meals worth. The equivalent of crème brulee was different enough from actual crème brulee because of the portugese twist to it and was very Christmassy. I tried the calamari appetizer and the Wild boar dish. Both tasted great, but because of the large amounts of meat I would try something different the next time. The ratio of meat to side dishes was a lot on the meat side. Would go back to check out more on their menu.

Had another patron spill a bucket of ice and water from champagne close to us and a bit on me and my wife. It put us off a little, but was definitely no fault of the establishment.

The ambience, food and service were all incredible otherwise. Make sure to indulge in the seafood. Even the ceviche was great. Everything is flown in fresh daily.

We make it a rule to never eat at the same place twice. Sabor has broken this rule many times particularly for special occasions. So for anniversary number 48 there was no decision.

We ordered the family sharing special. Oysters were perfect amuse bouches; calamari an shrimp done only the way Sabor does them were yummy. Two different varieties of fish perfectly done served on lobster risotto were outstanding. The risotto, by the way, was loaded with real lobster. Most wanna be good restaurants just scare a dish like that with lobster. And then dessert as well - all for $55 each!

Wonderful food at the best price in town. We will be breaking our rule again soon.
