Business dinners can be tedious but not if someone chooses the right restaurant. And this was s great choice!

The charcuterie appetizer was a great opener (along with the Merlot) to the seafood special of scallops (cooked perfectly), prawns and then Sea bass.

Knowledge wait stall gave good advise - and kept the glasses full.

For being so far from the ocean, the sea food was very good. :) All of our meals were excellent, but what really made the evening for us was the service. Our waiter was one of the best I've had. The decor was classy and interesting. This was a great upscale restaurant and I would go back.

Celebrating our 8th year anniversary together, we decided to indulge and try something different.

I called in on a tuesday night and told the host that it'd be our 8 year anniversary and if they could do something special. He said yes.

We came in to Sabor and had the shared family meal 3 course dish.

Everything is served family style meaning shared where you serve yourself from the middle plate.

First two dishes were the prawns and scallops. Both cooked to perfection with fantastic sauces.

Main course was the lobster rissotto with a fatty fish and cheesy, creamy, and tomato type rissotto sauce. A little to rich for my liking, but still delicious.

Finale was a 3 platter dessert to share. There was a cheesecake, chocolate mousse, and creme brulee type of dessert. All of which were excellent and unique in their own ways.

It was a pleasant and casual dining experience for a great price ($55/ person for the family share meal).

Overall we had a fantastic experience. However, we never did get a special anniversary dessert or mention as the host promised. That left a little sour taste in my mouth, therefore, we will rate it 4 / 5 stars.

This was our second time visiting Sabor and based on previous reviews, I was expecting to be wowed as the first time was good; however, the price quickly made it average. Unfortunately, I have to say I felt the same way the second time visiting.

We ordered the grilled calamari and prawns as an appetizer - The calamari was truly awful and there was only two prawns in the entire dish (there was four of us). I thought maybe I was being picky, but no one else at our table touched the calamari either.

We had the lobster rositto, seafood paella and the tagilatelle. It was tasty and there was no complaints but for $30.00+/entree, we didn't see what the fuss was all about.

Our server was pleasant, but she didn't come and take our drink order for 15 minutes. She came to see if we were ready to order our meals and when we told her 'yes', she walked away without taking the order. Maybe she was having an off night. As for the atmosphere, it was quite noisy in there but the restaurant was full so I guess that's to be expected. Overall, it wouldn't be my first choice to return too.. there's way better options in the city than Sabor.
