Our family stayed at this hotel and decided to eat at the restaurant down stairs. What a pleasant surprise. Everything we ordered was amazing. Soft pretzel appetizers. Chicken and waffles and dessert were outstanding. I tasted other family members dishes and it was all top notch food with a lovely presentation.

Everyone raved about Sable, and told us we had to go! The two things that stick out about our experience are 1.) Size of appetizers (and quality) not worth the money and 2.) bartender gave us both drinks with a liquor other than what we requested. Very odd. I've never known a bartender to do that intentionally before....and then he... More

Nice ambience here with some great couch seating. But something went terribly awry with the Moscow Mule I ordered. It was basically pure ginger beer. It was undrinkable. No copper mug either. Now to their credit they took it back no problem and replaced it with a gin and tonic. That was excellent. Maybe it was just bad luck with... More

Gotta say that we do not have much to review. Our concierge from the Gwen suggested Sable. Took a cab in the rain and we were starving late on a Friday night. No tables in the dining room so we found a small table at the bar. After waiting 10 minutes and no service with bartenders right in front of... More

I had dinner and drinks at Sable, service was outstanding! I highly recommend trying the Spanish style gin craft cocktails served in bowl glasses, so refreshing and unique. Between my sister and I, we tried 4 gin cocktails and they were all amazing, crisp and not too sweet. We had the ceviche, scallops and beet salad for dinner. All plates... More

During our stay at the Palomar, we did Sable for Breakfast two mornings. The venue is nice, open and vibrant, and the food was surprisingly good, especially for "hotel food." We enjoyed our from the menu offering, and service was very attentive, and efficient. We do many hotel Breakfasts, and these ranked well above the average, even at some luxury... More

Our food, service and atmosphere were all impeccable. Pretty place with bar in front and restaurant in back, although we ate at a high top in the bar area. The drinks are unique and delicious. I have never seen such a well stocked bar. The tapas were for sharing for the most part. All excellent, as was the churro dessert.... More

Where to begin? I could not possibly say anything more positive about this place. From the greeting at the host stand (young lady, tattoo on the arm), to our server Christian, to Nick (sous chef), everybody was over the top and provided exceptional service. The food was amazing; lobster rangoons, duck tacos, brûléed scallops, were all out of this world.... More

Asked the waitress to suggest a cocktail from the impressive menu and after asking me what I liked, suggested the tequila based martinez (?). Excellent. So were the small plates of cheese & beat, tacos and sliders we ordered and demolished, to be polished off by a cheese cake amongst three. Great evening.

The food was pretty good, but we mostly went for cocktails and were not disappointed. We were told they just redid the menu. I asked the bartender to surprise me, anything with vodka and they hands down the best drinks we have ever had.
