The film received mixed reviews. Jay Weissberg praised the film in Variety as an "expertly modulated choral drama". Stephen Dalton writing for The Hollywood Reporter gave a negative review, noting, "The take-home message that historical narratives are always complex and contentious, especially in the Balkans, is unquestionably true but hardly a profound insight. Not quite a political thriller, not quite a provocative drama, not quite an inspired stage adaptation, Death in Sarajevo is a minor addition to Tanovic's illustrious body of work."

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that the film has an overall approval rating of 69%, based on 14 reviews, with a weighted average rating of 7.6/10.
