I have not been to Sabore in a while, and took my wife for her birthday. It was just as good as I remembered. There are a lot of different items on the menu and since it is tapas you can share. If you go you must try the lobster bisque. It is velvety and creamy and just makes your... More

Just visited for dinner on Dec. 3. Have been here at least three times previously. Ordered the short ribs and calamari. Calamari was great, except that this dish was served without a serving spoon and thus was a little cold by the time we tracked down our waiter. The portion size of the short ribs was smaller than in the... More

Decided based on the Grilled Octopus on the menu to try Sabore! It was perfect for a birthday dinner for my 88 year old mom. We had a group of ladies from 21 to 88 and we all enjoyed it.

The new Brunch menu is so good we've been here 3 of the 4 weekends that it's been open. The chicken and waffles are amazing. I just had the duck french toast today and also a new favorite. Definitely a place you need to visit for a unique foodie experience.

When I saw that a chef friend from Lyon had visited this restaurant, I had to try it with some friends. The decor set the mood with its deep, rich colors. The ambiance is breathtaking. Never mind the individual attention we received from the great chef Valero when we ordered the risotto with truffles. He shaved it at our table... More

If you are looking for a place with ambiance (and only that), you can try out the place. As none of the items are above average (we were in a party of > 10 so tried almost all the options but for none any superlative adjective can be added). Also keep in mind most of the servings are pretty small... More

Recently we visited Sabore a place where we have dined many many times in the past years and enjoyed it. Well, our experience from this last visit was not one we want to repeat.
