Service was fine, but food was just okay and expensive. $17 enchiladas seem very high to me. Doubtful that we will go back.

We visited this place on a Friday night with friends who had been there many times before. The place was packed full and very energetic, We waited for about 5 minutes for the table and ordered Margaritas; they were huge!. My skinny Margarita was really good, not as syrupy as some others I have had before. The waiters were friendly... More

Sabor Cocina did not disappoint! Delicious tortilla soup was nicely presented - shredded chicken tacos were tasty and the organic margaritas were super good. Located in a nice park like setting - would be great to dine outdoors if weather permits.

Beautifully designed and appointed, transports you to another world. Once you are there, you find the food is amazing and delightful. The service is great. Do not miss this gem. It is an upscale mexican restaurant and will make it difficult to return to lesser establishments. I usually use the Chili Rellano as a meter for the quality of a... More

I have enjoyed dining here several times, and have always been impressed with the super fresh, organic ingredients and the wonderful, sophisticated flavors. If you have ever dined at some of the finer restaurants in Mexico City, you will immediately recognize the flavor profiles. This is not Tex-Mex by any means. Not that I don't enjoy that style but the... More

There were 12 in my book club. We were waited on quickly and expertly in pleasant surroundings. The food was out of the ordinary with generous portions served with a smile. We were on our way to hear an author speak at the nearby Kavli Theater, so we appreciated that everything moved quickly from seating, ordering, serving, and receiving our... More

Visited this restaurant with colleagues and enjoyed the Tortilla Soup, Plantains with Cheese and Fish Tacos. The margaritas were enormous and savory. This is a good place to have a pleasant meal!

Sabor is a great take on fresh, light and creative Mexican food. I always enjoy the new spin on traditional meals. Thinly sliced Jicama "taco shells" filled with free range chicken and cabbage slaw is yummy and light - tonight enjoyed poblano crepes filled with chicken. Yum. And did I mention the full bar with creative cocktails - always including... More

My wife and I visited before a concert at the T.O Civic Arts Plaza, a short 5 minute walk away. We made reservations on Open Table weeks in advance (good idea) and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Those that walked in had to wait 30-40 minutes. We told the waiter in advance we needed to be gone at a... More

This use to be a great restaurant to go to for lunch. It's still pricey, but the food quality has gone down, and the service, too. The waiters and managers use to be so friendly and welcoming. Our waiter was neither. Both the manager and our waiter were standing there when we walked in. No smile or greeting; we were... More
