What do I expect from a nice evening out at a restaurant? Ideally, I expect a clean establishment, good food, good service, and good friends. Sabor a Cafe met these expectations. The establishment is clean and tastefully decorated to give you a feel for Colombia. It also is cozy and intimate. The service was efficiently and cheerfully given. Our meal... More

I have been going to Sabor a Cafe for years. My favorite dish is the churrasco, a full steak served on a wooden board in the shape of an arrow, with a chimichurri dip, yucca, potato and fried banana. I always order this and I am never disappointed. Simple and to the point. But what I think sets this restaurant... More

The food was very good, the service was slow. It wasn't packed, but they did have quite a few people there. We had the picada which was delicious. They had many authentic Colombian dishes including empanadas, puerquitas, langua, bandeja paisa, etc.

Came here twice within 2 weeks because I had to bring my parents back the 2 nd time! Love their whole tilapia, fried perfectly crispy. So yummy I ordered that both times. The meat dish was not as successful as it was more tough that I'd like. Their tapas were pretty good too & great to share. It's a small... More

Every dish here is great, live music. Food is authentic and reminds me of growing up in South America.

This was our first visit to Sabor a Cafe. Calling for reservations I originally asked for a table for three. The voice on the phone really gave us all of our options saying he could put us in the room where we wouldn't see the musicians or a table near the bathroom which we might not like. My son then...

I used to live in Chicago and my wife is from Cali, Colombia. EVERY time we are back in Chicago this is a must stop for dinner, lunch, and probably dinner again. The food is as close to Colombia as you'll find anywhere short of Colombia. The atmosphere is rustic homestyle. The service is good, and when there is a... More
