“Used to be better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

They changed chefs at the beginning of the year and things are not the same. Pastas with sauce should not be plated in a rough dish that you cannot scrape the bottom because of the roughness! It is the worst sensation. Since my 2nd favorite dish is served like this, I cannot order it anymore! They also took away my 1st favorite of mahi mahi with carbonara risotto. That means that my two favorites are out. Rethink the menu and the presentation and it may return to their previous glory

“Very nice Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Chef Valero: new chef from Spain
We have been at Sabore few times now and the food is overall very good. Cooking with fresh ingredients makes difference.
Our last visit was an exceptional dining experience. Everything was spot-on, the menu had changed a bit since the last time we ate here and although some of my favorites have disappeared, there are some great new things on the menu.
Chef Valero has done a great job and it was a true pleasure meeting him.
After a very satisfying dining experience, he brought out a special dessert. Fresh fruits, soaked in a bit of alcohol just to get enriched, yet still taste like fresh fruit, with a bit of a kick.
And of course the Jamon Serrano. Thank you chef.

Would send my friends here and go again. For occasions, it is not cheap, yet not too pricey for the quality of food.

“What a unique experience !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

Wonderful "tapas" type meals. Food for sharing and experimenting with unique flavors. Vanilla mashed potatoes, bleu cheese over pear stuffed ravioli , empanadas made with flaky dough served with a dipping sauce "to die for". White and red sangria... we rarely get to have the white.. it was so light tart a real delight.:-) This is a contemporary designed service-finish a course, choose another and in 5 minutes it is on your table. Servers are very knowledge and right there when you need them. Make reservations. Pricing is very reasonable for the quality of food, service and ambiance. I'll be back.

“Outstanding Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Sabore is back and better than its original incarnation! Hats off to Luisa and Horst for investing their time, talents, resources, and especially for bringing us Chef Valero. Excellent dining experience from entry to exit! No negatives whatsoever! We took our newly married son and daughter-in-law out for a special evening and were absolutely delighted ito have taken them there! It's back on our list of regulars for sure! Gracias a todos alla'!

Aw! Thank you for your feedback. The Fiocchi is very popular, the sweetness of the pears mixed with the pasta purses and bleu cheese crumbles.... it’s heavenly!
On your next visit be sure to check-in using Foursquare to receive your side order of Tequeños; fried paisa cheese rolls with guava sauce! See you soon.
