I am visiting CA and decided to take my brother here (he lives here). This was a last minute decision. What a wonderful dinner! Everything about this restaurant is first class. The ambiance, the food, the service, the positive smiling attitude of the server. He...More

We went to Sabor on a Saturday night. There were very few people in the restaurant, which made us hesitant when we entered. The decor is very dark with heavy wood furniture and huge red chandeliers. The margaritas are large, but weak. We are not...More

This is a beautifully decorated, sort-of-Mexican restaurant. The wait staff is friendly and helpful, if a trifle arrogant. It is dark, noisy and Mexican-ish. The good news is that their margaritas are huge and delicious and their beer is cold and fresh. The semi-bad news...More

Five of us went for an early supper before a concert next door. Very nice atmosphere, lovely food (5 of us with very good entrees) - not cheap, but fairly priced. Nice staff too.

This is some of the best Mexican food in the area. It doesn't taste like any other Mexican restaurant. It is always fresh, great service and great decor. A must try!

A great setting in Westlake Village/Thousand Oaks, Sabor "promises" that it is an upscale, modernized Mexican restaurant. It is, but it tries too hard. The dishes are "modernized" compared to traditional Mexican restaurants, but the portions are small and the taste mixes disappointed us.

I had the Chile Rellenos. They were delicious, but.. arrived with just a tiny scoop of rice. The price tag was way too high and I will not go back. However, right next door is Pho! They are absolutely delicious... At a reasonable price, go...More

I'm not the restaurant, I'm a customer but traditionally Mexican restaurants do not serve empanadas. Empanadas are from South America while Mexico is in North/Central America.
