“Great space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Went two nights ago with my friend for Edmonton Dining Week. For $25 we received a started, entree and dessert. We started with the caesar salad which was surprisingly very good, our main was piri piri chicken with fries and although the chicken was perfectly cooked, moist and flavourful, the fries were just okay and the dish lacked colour on the whole. We had our choice of dessert. I chose the portuguese custard (similar to Creme Brulee) which although tasted okay, the plating left a lot to be desired. My friend ordered the tiramisu which I normally love but their version is slightly more alcoholic tasting than my palate prefers.

For a drink, I ordered one of their cocktails made with gin, St. Germain and sparkling wine. I'm normally a lover of these three combined and I've had lots of cocktails made with gin and st. germain but I did not really enjoy this version of their cocktail.

The restaurant itself is tastefully decorated and feels intimate and a perfect place for a date. They had live music that night, a guitarist who played a few splendid sets. Unfortunately, at around 9pm the club beneath the restaurant opens up which also means the bass from the house music playing can not only be heard, but felt through the wooden floor boards, so it detracted from the atmosphere which was so pleasant just prior.

All in all I would go back and try their regular menu. I believe they specialize in seafood. But I would try and go earlier on in the evening to prevent the downstairs club music from interfering with the night.

Service was good but by no means exceptional.

“Fine dining with fine service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We loved every moment at Sabor Divino. Tucked away in downtown Edmonton, the spacious interior and elegant presentation of the fantastic food will transport you to your happy place.

We shared the (huge) seafood platter, and took the Chet's recommendation on a beautiful bottle of wine. The wine was paired perfectly, and the food was delicious.

We will be back.

“One of the best restaurants in Edmonton. Excellent, knowledgeable service, great food and nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

In a city full of expensive, mediocre food; Sabor Divino is a standout. We appreciated the carefully selected wine list and fabulous service. The charcuterie plate and smoked duck and mushroom risotto were perfectly prepared. We will return!

Great wine list, nice atmoshere, great food and amazing service. This to me is the top overall restaurant in Edmonton. We had the smoked duck and mushroom risotto. I can't say enough about the service.

“Deliciously Cultural”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

The food tasted fantastic, the atmosphere was comfortable and the service was good, however, the waiter did not smile much. We went for lunch and the meals were large.
