Food was too greasy with no taste. With all the good reviews I was expecting better. The points given are only for the service otherwise I'd have to give 0 points. Very disappointing.

Tom L, Owner at Sabella & La Torre, responded to this review

Belive me, Ama, I'm just as disappointed. Like you've probably saw with the many reviews here, you should expect our food to be fresh and properly prepared. The fact yours was "greasy" doesn't sit well with me -- that's the last thing you should expect from us. While service was good, I wish we could have left a better impression... More

Portion sizes are huge and the food is fresh. I had the red snapper broiled and they killed it, it was so good. May this a stop on your trip if you want great seafood

I don't typically write reviews, but I felt compelled to do so on this restaurant. The atmosphere is definitely lacking. The clam chowder was good and the garlic sauce on my seafood was yummy. However my dish was almost impossible to eat and extremely messy

Tom L, Owner at Sabella & La Torre, responded to this review

I'm sorry your experience compelled you to write this. We've been around since 1927, so our establishment is a bit older. I am disappointed, however, about your meal. While I'm certainly glad it tasted good, it seems like we still failed to impress. Still, I do appreciate that you stopped by -- hope the rest of your visit to the... More

I have been coming to S&L for many many years and this review is overdue. I love their food, their drinks and their friendliness. I am always welcomed and I feel like family every time I go. Their seafood is the freshest and really delicious. I will continue to come to this restaurant as many times as I can. 😍

The interior wasn't anything special but you're right in the middle of the action at the Wharf and the food and bar were great! We just sat at the bar where the bar tender was great and friendly. We had chowder, caesar salad, shrimp cocktail and a crab panini between the two of us. It was all yummy. Next time... More

Okay Restaurant in Fisherman Warf, first you will see many people walking with Fried Scrimp and Chips (French Fries) and say hey where'd you get that. And proudly they say Sabella's, although may have a line, it moves fast, hot food coming up. Choice, get your food to go, or eat in the private restaurant and pay at least two... More

We had been advised that Fishermans Wharf area was not so good but we had a great morning wandering around the area. An early lunch at this restaurant was great! The chowder is the best we have had in six weeks of travelling in this country. Fish and chips were fresh and tasty. Recommend!!
