  • We reached out to Rafa - owner of Sabor - a couple of months before our wedding date (we were a last minute micro COVID wedding). Communication with the team was exceptional. They responded almost immediately, and was so excited to be a part of our special day. On the day-of, there were no issues at all. The team arrived on time, and even had appetizers + drinks ready early! The food/drinks and service was amazing, to die for, 10/10... couldn't find anything wrong with it. For weeks after, our guests were talking the food. We're for sure having these guys for every other kind of event we host. Also - don't forget to have the Brazilian cocktails! EVERYONE was talking about them all night!

  • I cannot express how deeply appreciative my husband and I are to have met Rafael and his team at Sabor de Vida. Throughout the many months of wedding preparation, my husband and I visited the restaurant on several occasions (both announced and unannounced) and we were blown away every single time. We knew our wedding food would be a success, and boy oh boy, were we right! BLOWN AWAY. EVERYONE. WOW. Reflecting on my wedding day, the amazing food and service bring a smile to my face. Sabor de Vida was truly the best wedding decision I made. Some detailed highlights include: 100% responsiveness, impeccable taste and quality cuisine, supreme and warm service, willingness to drive all the way from San Diego to Pasadena, unparalleled professionalism. WOW. I love this place and these people. I cannot recommend them enough. All of my wedding guests cannot stop raving about their dinner experience. It was truly amazing and second to none. *Chef’s Kiss*

  • Rafael and his team over at Sabor de Vida are AMAZING!!! We initially planned a 200+ person wedding in LA that they were going to travel from San Diego to cater. Their prices are fantastic, the food is phenomenal, and the customer service is amazing. When COVID hit, we had to reconfigure all of our plans, and ended up hosting an intimate dinner for our immediate family instead for our wedding. Rafael was so amazing through all of this and continued to remain flexible and understanding thru a really difficult time for me and my husband. Sabor de Vida ended up catering and serving our intimate dinner (bonus: they do at-home chef service too!) and made our small wedding dinner still feel so special. Rafael truly makes you feel like family, and we are so grateful to have picked him as our caterer. We cannot recommend Sabor de Vida enough!!!! They were recommended to us by a friend who also used them for her wedding, and she said they were amazing as well. If you want a caterer who trul... Read more

  • I super recommend the services of Sabor de Vida Brazillian Grill. Rafael was always fast responsive, we even talked during his vacation! He promptly answered all our questions and gave very good tips. On the wedding day, everything went smoothly and the food was DELICIOUS! I heard many compliments from all my guests, Brazilians or non-Brazilians.

  • My husband & I absolutely love the food, the staff, and the overall friendly environment! This past weekend we had Sabor de Vida cater our wedding and it was the best decision we made! Rafael & his staff were highly recommended to us by our coordinator and now we know why! From the very first food tasting to the day of, we were very well taken care of! Their bartending service was also incredible. We were happy and our guests were happy! Everything turned out perfect thanks to them.

  • Sabor de Vida was hands-down the best choice we made for our wedding!! First, the food is absolutely incredible. All of our guests were raving about it, and we're still hearing comments about the food a week after the wedding. They cater to everyone; we had vegetarians and vegans at our wedding and there was enough options for them just out of the buffet package we selected, including appetizers. The food is so fresh and juicy, not overdone with spices or sauces, just amazing taste that even fussy eaters loved! In addition to the food, you can't get better people. Their staff were so nice and friendly, true to Brazilian style they were just beautiful, loving people who looked like they were having a great time working with each other. Rafael from the beginning was so wonderful and easy to work with. He had to deal with our very difficult venue but didn't complain, and he was always positive and encouraging to me. He gave me advice about how to set up our tables and sent me photo exam... Read more

  • Sabor De Vida and Rafael (owner) were without a doubt the best decision we made for our wedding! we did not have a wedding planner and did everything ourselves So when we needed bartenders, Rafael supplied them! We needed someone to valet the golf cart to transport guests to our venue, Rafael supplied someone We needed someone to do the flip and set up the tables, Rafael supplied them We needed someone to clean up and breakdown, Rafael supplied them Everything we needed Rafael and Sabor De Vida went way above what we expected from a caterer Not mention, every single one of our guests loved the food and service I would recommend Sabor de Vida to anybody whether you are dropping by for lunch/dinner or planning a huge event such as wedding, corporate party, or birthday. Thank you to Rafael and Sabor de Vida crew for making our day so special!

  • We loved Sabor from our first bite. Our tasting at their restaurant was such a great experience that we booked them the next day. And throughout the planning process Rafael was amazing. Prompt, professional, flexible, and so kind. We hired their bartenders as well and we couldn’t have asked for better. The food was delicious (all our guests raved), the service impeccable, and we had a great reception. Rafael sent US a thank tour before we had a chance to thank him!! Would recommend sabor de vida to anyone!!!

  • I totally recommend Sabor de vida! Food quantity and quality was excellent, good presentation and servers and bartenders were very professional. Guest were amazed with the food! Staff was friendly and very helpful! They even went out of their way to get us ice for the drinks when we ran out. They made the whole process worry and stress free, everything was up front with good communication.

  • Rafael and his team catered our wedding, of about 170 people, in September at Lot 8. From the very beginning Rafael made this experience amazing!! He was so helpful with everything, not just his catering options. Overall he worked with us throughout the process and really made us feel at ease with handling our wedding(SOOO IMPORTANT). He was punctual and responsive to everything :) So nice to customize menu options and super flexile with it all! Now to the food.... Can you say EPIC!!! Our food was amazing! All of our guest were raving about the food all night!! We had so many people upset since they ate too much and were too full for dessert. Plenty of food for everyone, even with how much they all ate(haha). We have had people still ask us and talk about our food at the wedding. It was such a hit! You honestly can't go wrong with this place! I would recommend this to anyone and everyone! If I ever have another event I would totally use them again! Thank you so much for making ... Read more

  • You will not regret hiring them! I hired them to cater my wedding and they went above and beyond. Rafael was amazing to communicate with through out the entire process. The staff was incredible! I was bummed because I thought I would not be able to have any of the appetizers because we were taking pictures after the wedding but one of the sweetest servers came and brought us food and drinks. Everyone raved about the food at the wedding and the days after. The food was amazing, the set up was perfect! If you want great service, affordable food and stress free communication, look no further.

  • Had the best experience planning my dream backyard garden wedding at my grandmothers house. Not only are people still talking about the amount of love shown to them attending our wedding but people are raving about Brazilian BBQ catering. It was the icing on top of the wedding cake for us our guest enjoyed the food. cant wait to come check out the restaurant in person. Great customer service very attentive to wedding party needs. no complaints :)
