Sabroso is located just outside of Arroyo Seco, which is a village on the way from Taos to the ski valley. It has two lovely rooms for dining, both with fireplaces and an outdoor covered patio for warmer weather. The bar is large and has seating at the bar and at low tables and sofas. The walls have beautiful painted... More

Had the steak frites tonight. The flavor of the meat was good with a tasty sauce and it was cooked medium rare, as ordered, but the the meat was tough. Also, L - O - N - G periods of time passed between visits from the waiter. The bar's atmosphere is cozy and intimate, it's a great place, but it... More

We loved the bar and unfortunately had reservations somewhere else. The place is fabulous! Dark and cozy with live music and great margaritas!

Go early to enjoy the live music - it sets a soothing note to the atmosphere. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant. One mean margaritas - actually two each. The food was average except for the corn chowder which was excellent. We would certainly go back. There was a rehearsal dinner there that evening... More

We had dinner on the patio, and as it was cool, they gave me a wrap - perfect! Our dinners were from the bar menu, but plenty of food, and all very good. Chef Tim even came to our table and visited for a bit. It couldn't have been better - can't wait to go back! Delicious Margaritas too!

We arrived at dusk and though it a bit cool to sit outside (where there was entertainment). We got a quiet table inside and had a nice dinner. My wife had fillet mignon and I had chicken stuffed with feta and sundried tomatos. The salads and sides were very good, especially the fingerling potatoes. Service was excellent and the wine...

We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant evening. Our server was personable and helpful. Our portabella mushroom appetizer with the ginger dipping sauce was great. The boulibaisse was filled with seafood, and the mushroom pasta was delicious and rich. Water and wine glasses were kept filled, and the timing of the courses was excellent. (The desserts were great, too.)... More

Four of us made our first visit to Sabrosa on my birthday last week, and couldn't have been more pleased with our dinner and the service. Such a charming ambience with background guitar. I had the mixed grill with filet, lamb chop and shrimp, all cooked perfectly to my taste. Two of our group ordered salmon and raved about it.... More

We had been at the Taos Home and Garden Tour and ate at Sabroso Restaurant at the suggestion of the tour and at the price of $15 for the buffet. The food was good for the price but not outstanding however the desert, a cherry cobbler, was truly yummy!

All 4 of us enjoyed our meal although some of the food was so-so. The pasta was tasty but the mixed grill with very good shrimp featured a fillet steak that was tough and stringy, which is probably why it was covered in some kind of thick brown sauce! The Andouie Sausage was good, not great. The bouibasse was pronounced... More
