A remarkable experience. We had the tasting menu with the paired wines and found both the food and wines to be outstanding. Service was attentive without being intrusive.

Saveur has the best gnocchi in town. Their pork belly is amazing too. Great service. We will definitely be back!

It's a 15 minute walk. You'll have to email Saveur to check out availability. They do have a vegetarian set 5 course menu.

Un seule personne nous a parler en Francais lorsque mous avons visiter ce restaurant. Le nom du restaurant est en Francais mais je penses que c'est leur limite et ils ont qu'une personne du staff qui parle en Francais.
