Amazing Mexican food with a different flair

This is some of the best Mexican food in the area. It doesn't taste like any other Mexican restaurant. It is always fresh, great service and great decor. A must try!

A great setting in Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks, Sabor "promises" that it is an upscale, modernized Mexican restaurant. It is, but it tries too hard. The dishes are "modernized" compared to traditional Mexican restaurants, but the portions are small and the taste mixes disappointed us.

I had the Chile Rellenos. They were delicious, but.. arrived with just a tiny scoop of rice. The price tag was way too high and I will not go back. However, right next door is Pho! They are absolutely delicious... At a reasonable price, go there instead!

Had been thinking of eating here for some time but the "perceived" prices gave me some concern. Well, my concerns were unfounded. True, the restaurant is pricier than other Mexican restaurants in the area but the food and service was five star. Decided on New Year's Eve. Had the best blended Margarita in a long time. Rather than beans or... More

Having grown up on Mexican food, I found Sabor's description of their Mexican food interesting. While on a business trip, I decided to give them a try. I tried their salad with the garlic shrimp and shared a carne asada burrito. Each item was delicious! Everything had its own unique favor. Some foods share the same cooking oil so sometimes... More

Family friendly atmosphere. Cozy and fun feel. Excellent service, very attentive and generous portions served. I love this place to go with my family or a group, there is something for everyone. They have tasty dishes and we love their spaghetti bolognese and chicken parmesan, always delicious. I particularly love their salads, which I can never finish and always take... More

In our area Thousand oaks to Agoura finding a decent Mexican restaurant is hard to find.The restaurants around here are lard filled greasy places, Sabor is a lite tex-mex style that is NOT greasy, Staff is great the chips were really light and the fish is out of this world. If you order a burrito split it as it is... More

Chips and salsa were good; no limit. People in our party had fish tacos, steak tacos, and chicken burrito. All were great. Order a side of the fried plantains; they are good. The beans are better than the standard refried beans at other places. Dessert was great. If you order a margarita, get it blended.

I had liked the creative cuisine...and large margaritas...but feel compelled to share an inexcusable experience which left me and the guests I brought with me with a very bad taste!!! While taking colleagues to dinner, one of my guests found a large bone in his duck taco as he was eating it. GASP! That is seriously NOT ok! We immediately... More

I've been here several times and the food and service are always of the highest quality. The bar also serves up fresh & refreshing cocktails and non alcoholic beverages.
