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

Mexican is not my favorite food, but I suggested this place to please my husband. Even the complimentary salsa and chips were good ~ the chips were perfectly not greasy!. The ceviche was fabulous, and the carnitas a total surprise.The pork was braised and so soft and tender. I would (and already have ) recommend this place . Excited to... More

My wife and I ate here last night. The interior is decorated quite nicely; lots of Mexican decor, a beautiful curved ceiling and the seating was comfortable. Our waiter was very good with a nice sense of humor. The dinner was served in short order and we liked the presentation. We shared the beef tacos with a side corn dish... More

We like to go to Sabor in the early evenings and sit outside sipping margaritas with friends. The food is unique, colorful and delicious. We will definitely be back soon. Aside from the ridiculous parking situation there, it's great.

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
