One of Gainesville's few fine dining experiences. Took a hiatus from the restaurant for several months and was surprisingly pleased when we returned to celebrate a birthday there recently. Ambiance is always reminiscent of haute-couture SoBe (Miami)- even though outside is still Gainesville. Dinner was delicious- had the tuna tostone and cod salad. Flavors are fresh and inspiring.

My husband & I were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary. We had been in to Sabore for drinks and thought it was nice. I was able to make reservations on line...nice! They even called to confirm our reservation the day before! When we arrived, we were wonderfully greeted with "Happy Anniversary!" (I had told them in the reservation)...and treated to a great, intimate booth and a complimentary glass of delicious champage for us both. Our server was polite, informed, helpful & swift. My husband had the filet.....fabulous...and I had a house salad that was HUGE and delicious and the red curry mahi mahi....out of this world. After dinner coffees....no dessert tho' they sounded great. Great atmosphere, excellent food & service....we will go back..made for a really lovely evening.

We keep trying it, but we're disappointed every time. They've got great atmosphere, good service and drinks-it's just such mediocre food. While it looks good on paper, everything ultimately seems straight from the package with practically no actual cooking occurring. We opted for just assorted appetizers this latest time; decent Maryland style crab cakes accomplished by Ken's honey mustard and store bought guacamole,(advertised as avacado salad), "Diver scallops"- I swear these were Gordon's frozen bay scallops with some kind of crappy mayo sauce. Mole duck tacos?! So lame with plain sour cream, packaged shredded cheddar and cold tortillas. I don't get it- they've got a brand new, wealthy market in front if them and fail to bring it every time. Get a new chef!!

The food and atmosphere is great. It is great for date night or a night out with your friends. It is hard to believe you are in Gainesville when you are here. Highly recommend this place.
