Nice patio area with a great outdoor setting in the Lakes shopping mall

We've been here before for dinner with friends, and all the dishes were very good. The atmosphere and decor inside the restaurant is very nice. But this time we came for lunch on a weekday.

The food and atmosphere were excellent, but the margaritas aren't worth the money. We paid $15 each and there wasn't hardly any tequila in them.

The food is top-notch, and the margaritas are huge. This is high-end Mexican food without the high price tag. I've tried the Chile Relleno de Pollo, and the Cochinita Pibil (pork), and quite a few other dishes over the years. It's consistently tasty, and well presented. The place is impeccably decorated, and the booths are cozy. Worth a visit.

Fun place to go for drinks and hang in the bar. The decor is beautiful and the food is good. However, they seem to heat the PLATE but that does not equate to a hot meal. I have had a few times where they said "be careful the plate is hot' which makes you think you need to wait to... More

LOVE coming here whether for dinner or just drinks! Great food and even better Margaritas! The antojitos are the best! Food is flavorful without being super spicy! Love sitting outside on their patio. Wonderful way to end a day!

Not your usual Mexican cuisine! Healthier, artfully presented, Sabor's menu is gives you a rounded choice of meat, fish, vegan dishes that are so delicious! You've got your tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and plates sans the greasy goo. Don't forget the margaritas! Wow, what a selection they have--makes it a hard choice. Very friendly staff. We have a toddler with us... More

Tasted 3 meals here as the family shared with me and I could actually review more than one dish. The much anticipated fish tacos were the biggest disappointment. Very bland using the cod. They might want to switch to the mahi mahi. The chile rellano with seafood was decent but not good enough to justify the price. The simple chicken... More

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 great food. Who can ask for 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
