So neat to find a Cuban restaurant in downtown Frederick. We were a bit skeptical when we arrived as it was nearly empty. By the time we finished dinner, the place was packed. I had the Cuban-style country fried steak- and it was very good. The flan and Cuban coffee was an excellent way to finish... read more

We reserved the room in the back for 25 family members to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday! We liked the decor and ambiance of the restaurant. The seating area for the big room in the back was PERFECT for his birthday celebration. Now on to the good stuff... THE FOOD. It was great! We had absolutely nothing to complain about.... More

The ambiance of this family owned business as you step in the front door, finds you transporting into a Cuban home for dinner! The aroma of food cooking, the simple decor, and the friendly service will surely delight you! Do not hesitate to ask questions about items on the menu if you are not familiar with what you see.

This was our first trip to Sabor de Cuba and we were not disappointed. Everything from the very reasonable $2 garlic bread to the entrees to our amazing tres leches cake were delicious. Our waitress was friendly and the service was fast. We will definitely be coming back and bringing family and friends with us!

Sorry Sabor, the reviews appeared mostly good but we will never be back. Although the waitress was exceptionally nice, my meal was awful and several others in our group were unimpressed. I hope anyone who eats here after reading this has better luck than we did.

My husband and me went here for a weekend dinner recently. I thought the service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere is very laid back and casual and food was good, but not great. My husband had a chicken dish that was breaded with sauce and cheese (sort of like chicken parm) and I had their Bastec de Palomilla... More

Went to Frederick for a business visit and we went to Sabor de Cuba for lunch. Nice variety of dishes for anyone's taste and they were willing to make some adjustments to a couple of items. The local company VP eats there several times a week so they almost intuitively serve him. One of my associates had the Picidillo chile.... More

We went there as a group to celebrate the end of a section of training, and the food was wonderful. The only problem we had was in dividing out the bills for 15 people. I think they need to split out each person's tab.

I've been to Gitmo. I frequent KW. I've had real Cuban food cooked by real Cubans. This place is no where close to real Cuban food. The food was mediocre at best. There was no discernable difference between the pernil or the masitas. Both were dry and flavorless. The only highlights were the tres leches cake and the maduros. And... More
