A World Class Restaurant in the Palm of Your Hand

Food is our Common Ground

When Sabio on Main needed a fresh, modern website to help them bring a new level of dining experience in the heart of downtown Pleasanton, they turned to JVF to get it done right.

In an effort to re-envision their brand strategy for the digital age, JVF laid the groundwork with a custom design that engages customers with visually stunning photos and videos showcasing Sabio’s seasonal, modern tapas.

To simplify the reservation process we integrated the website with OpenTable, the most popular restaurant reservation software available, so that visitors can make a reservation without leaving the website.

User Experience

People are hungry and ready to eat, so we created a user experience that was clean, mobile-first, and easy to use. We simplified the navigation for Sabio’s complex menu, special event, and catering offerings, so visitors are informed about Sabio’s welcoming event spaces, locally sourced ingredients and eclectic wine selection.

To ensure the menus are always current, we eliminated the complexity of making tedious updates by integrating to MustHaveMenus. Menu updates only need to be made in one place, making it fast and convenient for Sabio to create, edit, and store all of their menus.


We streamlined Sabio’s layout for mobile, so that users can enjoy the same unique experience from their smartphones and other mobile devices as their computer. The responsive web design makes it simple for online visitors to find the information they need with just a few taps of a finger.

The goal of the mobile layout was to entice the senses through an authentic dining experience. Sabio’s strength lies within their contemporary space, and their local organic ingredients, found in all of their food and artisan cocktails.


In addition to redesigning the website, we developed a comprehensive digital strategy to drive targeted traffic. Using SEO, and Schema structured data markup, we helped Sabio on Main gain more exposure through search by reaching a wider audience of hungry people looking for 5 star restaurants.

Specific landing pages were created to drive customers to easily find exactly what they were searching for. The optimized pages have proven to increase time spent on the website, conversions, and brand awareness.

The Results

Foodies in search of restaurants want to know what’s on the menu, and how they can get into your establishment, in the shortest amount of time. With JVF’s help, the redesign of the Sabio on Main website provides the vital information they’re looking for. The digital strategy implemented has measurable results, that ultimately expanded Sabio’s digital footprint.

By improving the website and updating the brand identity online, Sabio on Main stands out from their competition, attracting new customers in search of global tapas, wine, and artisan cocktails.
