Dinner on Easter Sunday exceeded my expectations. The upscale menu is creative, not what you would find in a traditional Mexican restaurant. The service is attentive, the salsa is perfectly seasoned, and the food is attractively prepared. I highly recommend the Arrachera. You should go to Sabor if you are interested in something out of the ordinary.

We held our office Christmas party in their small private room. There were 8 of us and we had a great time. We had drinks, appetizers, more drinks, entrees and more drinks. The food was great and the drinks fantastic. We got lots of attentive, pleasant service. We were never rushed... I had previously had a birthday dinner in the... More

Service was incredibly disappointing. They forgot our appetizers, brought them in the middle of our meal. After bringing our dinner, no one checked back for 40 minutes. We all wanted to order another round of drinks..lithe manager finally came by, but we had run out of time. The place was packed. There was a concert next door, but they apparently... More

I hadn't been to Sabor Cocina previously. I was looking for a nice place to have dinner for a family member's birthday for a group of 9, which included a toddler. Sabor Cocina was a delicious option, reasonable prices, good service, nice ambience.

If you are looking for cheap greasy plastic cheese mexican fare--this is NOT the place to come. The ingredients are fresh and the flavors compelling. This is my favorite Mexican fare in the area and I have yet to be disappointed by something I have eaten here. Always a delight to look at and to eat. I love the ceviche... More

This is a very large and spacious restaurant. Nicely decorated, it is not "cozy" unless you get a booth. it has a generous variety of Margarita's in very large glasses. The variety of entries was extensive, we tried the enchiladas de mariscos, the brussel sprouts, and the Chile Pasilla de mariscos, we also had a side order of the fried... More

Service was fine, but food was just okay and expensive. $17 enchiladas seem very high to me. Doubtful that we will go back.

We visited this place on a Friday night with friends who had been there many times before. The place was packed full and very energetic, We waited for about 5 minutes for the table and ordered Margaritas; they were huge!. My skinny Margarita was really good, not as syrupy as some others I have had before. The waiters were friendly... More

Sabor Cocina did not disappoint! Delicious tortilla soup was nicely presented - shredded chicken tacos were tasty and the organic margaritas were super good. Located in a nice park like setting - would be great to dine outdoors if weather permits.

Beautifully designed and appointed, transports you to another world. Once you are there, you find the food is amazing and delightful. The service is great. Do not miss this gem. It is an upscale mexican restaurant and will make it difficult to return to lesser establishments. I usually use the Chili Rellano as a meter for the quality of a... More
