This was the best Thanksgiving meal we have had in ages and possibly the best carry-out meal we've had since March. The turkey was so tender and the vegetable blend was fantastic. My husband, a potatoes and gravy kind of guy, was in heaven! As for the pie...it was fabulous except for the last big piece which was stolen from the table in the blink of an eye by our resident beagle. Good to the last piece of crust! We're already planning our Christmas order. Thank you for the attention to detail and careful customer service.

The Thanksgiving turkey dinner plates were absolutely delicious! The stuffing was better than any I've had at other restaurants; wonderful roasted vegetable variety; marvelous bacon/cheddar biscuit; juicy turkey; nice containers; and stayed hot on trip home. Pick up of food was a bit confusing, but worked out in the end!!!

We love this place for breakfast. Have not tried diner yet. We ate on their new roof patio, and was very quaint. staff is always consistent and the owner walks among patrons which is a special touch. very diverse menu, but my favorite is avocado smash. serving with plastic silverware because of covid but they will give you the real silverware if you ask. we will be back soon

Sabrosa is one of my most favorite restaurants. So when we wanted to go out to celebrate our 45th anniversary, it was a great choice. Thanks for a great meal, good conversation--with staff and Chef Frankie. We really enjoyed the time sitting on the patio. We took a menu home and will definitely order carry out in the next few weeks. We should have ordered champagne, but it was early morning! Thanks for a great meal!

I have had a number of memorable meals at Sabrosa over the years. It is one of my favorite restaurants for breakfast. We ate in the new rooftop space this weekend and loved it! This is a wonderful way for the restaurant to expand their outdoor seating. This new space with the updated reservation system works well and is much appreciated. I also think this restaurant has some of the best waitstaff in town. The service is always top-notch, every time we go. Couple that with a delicious and imaginative menu, any cocktail your heart desires, and great coffee and you have a winner!

Had lunch on the roof top patio. It is in dire need of cleaning. Spider webs, dead leaves, stains on outdoor furniture cushions. An old grill that could use covering and other things picked up on the floor behind the grill. Probably all looks better at night

Sabrosa is doing a great job during the pandemic to create alternatives to inside dining. The rooftop dining was beautiful and socially distanced. We had great service and the food was delicious! I would definitely recommend dining on the rooftop patio.

This is our second time here, first since beginning of pandemic. Upon making the reservation through tableagent.com I saw they had a roof top seating option, which we found amazing. The day was clear, sunny skies and slightly breezy but also well covered with shade. Once we were seated, it initially took a few minutes longer than expected to get our drink orders in with our waitress, but that's the only issue we had with the service. Then there's the food. DELICIOUS! We had two of the Mexican specialty dishes and the herb biscuit and gravy. They all were great, ESPECIALLY the herb biscuit and country gravy!

A 7 because the food was delicious except for the fact that a bone was left in my chicken chilaquiles and some fatty chewy parts and the potatoes that were supposed to be part of my dish were forgotten.
