I don't know who those people are that say the food is good...it wasn't. We ordered the guacamole, ceviche, pork belly tacos, mole, chicken burrito, steak tacos, and nutella churros. All of the dishes needed extra flavor and more kick. When we asked for a spicy salsa (because the complimentary one was like watered down ketchup) the waiter informed us... More

I've eaten at this restaurant often and has consistently been excellent. Try the Jicama organic tacos or the Filet tacos.

Visiting Thousand Oaks and saw this place. My husband and I decided to try it and it was very good. Great tasty food, I had the Crepas Mexicanas and he had the Red Chile Enchiladas. We enjoyed the food, drinks and the ambience. Great friendly staff too.

Sabor has a fantastic outdoor patio and the weekday happy hour (ending at 6pm) is really great. This is one of my go-to restaurants and the kids love going too because they can play on the playground while the adults converse. Absolute favorite meals include the jicama chicken tacos and the stuffed poblano peppers (especially the Fall version with butternut... More

The food here is not the typical rice and beans with lots of cheese, which I very much appreciate. Service is very good and the restaurant is in a great location. I've been here a few times with friends and family and always enjoyed it.

Date night.. we arrived about an hour before our reservations and were told no tables were available so to the Cantina we went. The entire restaurant we full but we were able to grab a high table in the bar. Other reviews about the large Margi's are right BUT I think its cause they glasses are big and filled with... More

The atmosphere in this restaurant is teriffic and I wish that I could say something good about the food! Poorly conceived and even more poorly prepared. I ordered a Chili Relellno stuffed with shredded chicken. The chicken was so dry that it had no resemblance to chicken and the prices are excessive at best. These nice folks need to take... More

This was probably the best Mexican food I've ever had. Admittedly, I'm not sure how traditional it is, but it was delightfully fresh and vibrant. Both my husband and I had the stuffed chile relleno that was out-of-this-world. It's not always on the menu, but it was incredibly good. A roasted chile (as opposed to a battered, fried one) stuffed... More

Sabor Cocina came highly recommended so was looking forward to finding a new family favorite. The service was friendly and attentive, however the food was disappointing. It was not bad, the food was ok, maybe a little bland, but was very pricey. Honestly, you are paying for presentation and the area rather than outstanding mexican food. $90 for a family... More

After looking at the website we decided to give it a try. Mexican food with a modern twist is exactly what we got. The food was delicious but drinks are very expensive ($15 for a margarita). All in all a nice experience and we would definitely go back again.
