Takes Mexican food to a new level

Love this place. It's not just a taco on a plate. It's fish tacos, with sides, and drizzle of sauce around the plate. Everything is plated so beautifully. And the food tastes fantastic. My favorite is to eat outside on the patio on a beautiful sunny day. Great atmosphere, great service, and... read more

There were 3 of us for dinner before the theater. None of us had been here and all loved the food, service, ambience and price of the food. Each of us will definitely return. BTW wine prices were reasonable and portions generous.

We were at the Lakes Mall shopping during the holidays and decided to stop at Sabor for a Margarita and a light lunch. The Margarita's are huge and VERY good. We ordered the chicken taquitos and a side of guacamole, both of which were very good. We were sitting in the bar area and the service was very good. We... More

High End quality and innovative food. Amazing margaritas too. This family owned restaurant shows all the heart and soul the owners put into this beautiful place on a day to day basis. It is a MUST when you are in Thousand Oaks.

Finally dined at Sabor Cocina last night on a whim with husband and son -- New Year's Eve. Nice selection of atypical entrees -- definitely not your average Mexican restaurant. High end, Top Chef creativity with beautiful presentation is the theme here. The tortillas are made in house -- husband saw them making them in the back -- and they... More

Having stumbled into this place because there wasn't a waiting list, should have been a warning. The Tacos Dorado isn't a fish Taco, but a chicken taco in hard blue shell with fresh cheese. The tacos were average size but the accompanying Rice and beans were in very small portions. The rice was bland and the beans were pureed. The... More

The Sunday buffet is a very quiet scene inside, with the option to eat out on the patio. GREAT food and flavors. Servings are small, so you can try everything - mini chicken burritos, seafood quiche, veggie chile relleno, poached salmon, crab claws, various salads and fruits, slow roasted pork, plus of course bacon, egggs, french toast, etc. At $28...

The owners of this restaurant created an excellent menu & beautiful environment! This is our 7 day a week & 1st choice whether we are dining with children, young adults, friends, family, or Seniors. Fun at night dressed up for Theatre or during the day doing errands. Open for lunch when other restaurants are not serving.

Unless it is being cooked by Rick Bayless or Arron Sanchez the prices here don't warrant the end results. It is a beautiful restaurant, but the prices are just not justified for the quality of the meal.
