Diner Reviews
  • "Outstanding! Great for sushi lovers & novices. The mongolian lamb pops were the standout of the night, cooked to perfection of medium rare & luscious tasting. The lobster bomb was another highlight. Great menu variety of sushi & other asian fare - raw & cooked. Not the largest sushi menu, but the perfect balance of creative fare. Great wine & sake selection, but wish Momakawa Pearl was by the glass. The food came out a nice pace through our dining experience. The host and staff were polite and warm. Our server, Sandro (sp?) was perfectly attentive, very personable and truly made our evening so enjoyable for our first visit with some great recommendations. We will be back!"

  • "My friend took me to SAIA for my birthday. I love Sushi and I am very picky when it comes to sushi. The rainbow roll was really good. The fish was fresh, the roll was fresh, it was delicious. Our waiter was not very good, he did not follow through on my friends request for utensils or my request regular sodium soy sauce. However, I did see a waiter tending to another couple and from my standpoint seemed very good at his job."

  • "The place is nice....excellent location.. Nice service, minuscule but outstanding food presentation, etc. The only problem is that after spending $135 plus tip, for 2 people, we were hungrier that when we first arrived. Mind you, we are not big eaters. ( I only weight 165 lbs). After we left the restaurant were almost tempted to get a pizza next door. We would like to go back, since have a place around the corner and will go back in 30-40 days only one more time, just to re-check. Advise: please eat something before dining at SAIA"

  • "Service was a little slow at first but our waiter eventually got what kind of night we were looking to have...keep the food coming and keep the drinks full! We ordered several small plates to share and most were very good. The hamachi jalapino was delicious as were the miso scallops, but we ordered the mongolian lamb pops and even though there were only 4 and we had asked for them to be cooked medium, 2 were well done and two were rare...too rare for us to eat. We also ordered the Saia-Rita which was way too sweet so we asked for something else (with apologies) but the coast was not taken off of our total bill (which was large!) All in all a good experience. Really enjoyed the bi-polar martini's."

  • "Small, creative menu choices, very friendly hostess and wonderful windowside table overlooking A1A and the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The restaurant validates, so valet parking was only $5...very reasonable for premium beach resort/restaurant. We're locals and didn't even know this place existed...will definitely be back."

  • "Nice decor, average food, poor service. The decor is trendy chic, and the beach views are great ... but that is where the good part ends. The food was simply an unimpressive "okay." Lamb lollipops was good, as the lobster bomb roll. The pomegranate duck was bland and overcooked. The tempura rock shrimp were just okay. The service was terrible: nobody came yo the table for over 15 minutes, and it was another 15 minutes until the server returned with the wine. It wasn't like the place was full: a quarter of the tables were empty. It was just really poor service. Not worth a return visit."

  • "For sushi lovers and novices, sushi by the fresh roll is not to be missed. Friendly staff and a menu with signature sushi rolls and mixed plates make the choices simple and satisfying. It is not cheap, even with a Groupon, but it is hand rolled fresh with a flare. Save room for dessert--the tira ma sushi looks just like a sushi roll, but is a roll of chocolate cake, tiny, round red gelatin on top that looked like fish eggs, a small scoop of green tea ice cream to look like wasabi and real chocolate in a soy sauce dish to dip the dessert. Outstanding!"

  • "This upscale sushi/Asian restaurant in the main floor of the B hotel on A1A and the beach is one of our favorites. We seem to have a special table and naturally a special waiter. The lamb chop appetizer is always terrific.So much so we had 2 orders.The Lobster Bomb Sushi role melts in your mouth and the Shrimp Pad Thai with its watchful giant langostino on top was wonderful. The manager is very knowledgeable about the wine list and extremely gracious about the changes in their cellar. Be wary of walking through a gaggle of Hotel entrance smokers on the way into restaurant. Valet parking makes this a great place to eat on the beach. A decent bar crowd. A nice outside on the ocean dining area.Signup for eMail for monthly specials."

  • "Great location right on the ocean. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the "lamp lollipops". The drinks were also unique and delicious. It is actually now one of my favorite restaurants."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Our waitress was great but our sushi rolls came out one after the other and the last one came out 10 minutes after the previous roll...so you sit there and get full from not eating just to get another roll to your table. Would have been better had they all come out at once and we were able to sample off of the one plate. The drinks were good and our server was great! We went at night so couldn't see the water but the vibe at night was very east coast Florida."

  • "We went here for Valentine's day weekend dinner out. We had a Groupon so we were able to try more foods then we normally would have been able to. The rolls were a great value and the drinks were great. Our server knew the menu and made suggestions to us and had nice conversations with us. All around it was a great experience and we want to go back again. Softshell Dynamite and Fire Dragon Roll were our two favorites that we tried."

  • "Restaurant has a romantic ambiance and decor. Great place to have a romantic dinner or simply dine out with family and friends. I did not have the opportunity to explore the full menu (fixed menu at the time of visit). Service was adequate, but for a restaurant that aspires to be considered upscale, improvements are needed. Ocean view available pretty much anywhere in the restaurant."

  • "We did not get the chance to try out SAIA on valentine's day as we expected. We booked a reservation and we were seated immediately, however, we had to leave as soon as we found out that they did not have vegetarian or vegan options. They had a set menu for the night, which is fine but on the website it does not clearly state that. Also, the manager who spoke with us did not have any suggestions for vegetarian or vegan options. He tried to pursue us to eat certain things because he did not know the difference between the two. In addition, he asked us if were choosing to be vegans. We wanted to try SAIA out because we planned to have our rehearsal dinner there. I know that we only been there once but first impression is everything."

  • "We went there as a group of 7, ranging from 12 to 70 years old. The decor of the restaurant is beautiful, our waiter Anatoli was extremely nice. The food is beautifully prepared by the Thai chef and cooked to absolute perfection. Soups, pad Thai, udon salmon and the sushi/ maki were all excellent"

  • "We were here Saturday night and the place wasn't crowded. We sat outside which is right by A1A but still very nice. The ocean is across the street and breeze is definitely adding a nice touch. We shared a bottle of wine, had a miso soup each and also shared 4 rolls. The food was outstanding! It is not cheap but definitely worth it. Tastes were put together perfectly and fish was extremely fresh. Rolls were pretty big too; the two of us could not finish all 4. Our server was very pleasant as well. We fully enjoyed this experience. The only thing we found really not fitting was music. Very strange choice! P.S. Valet is $12 but finding parking in this area is a real challenge."

  • "We had heard great things about this restaurant. Maybe we hit it on an off night, but it just was not very good. The service was extremely slow and the food was disappointing to say the least. The setting was great however."

  • "My wife and i stopped in for our anniversary. We went in at 6pm and sat on the patio by the beach. The view was great and the food was even better. The server was very attentive and when we mentioned our special day they brought us out a off menu dessert from the chef. We just made reservations for Valentines day and can't wait to go back."

  • "The menu has many intriguing choices and the ones we tried were outstanding, including the lamb chop "lollipops", the tuna tartare and the knock out roll. Our server was very friendly and wanted to please, but our courses (it was just the two of us) arrived completely out of synch so we spent a lot of time watching each other eat. This was not necessarily the server's fault -- the kitchen may have been out of synch because of one large party that was in the restaurant - not many other tables were occupied on this Thursday night. The piped-in music is loud, making it difficult to converse, even though it was early in the evening -- 7:00 pm. It would be better to wait a while before cranking up the sound."

  • "I was looking for an upscale Asian restaurant for my daughter's 18th birthday. I found this restaurant on the internet and it looked like the right fit not knowing how the food would measure up. It turned out to be the PERFECT fit!! The restaurant and hotel in which it is located is beautiful. The service was excellent, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was excellent. They have a nice sushi menu, but they have many other choices for all tastes. They were also very accommodating for one of our party that had many dietary restrictions. I would definitely recommend Saia and I would definitely return!!"

  • "I had high hopes for this sushi bar on the beach. The two appetizers we wanted to order we out. We had to order the lamb popsicles, which were gristle and some meat. The sushi order was completely different then the menu. I ordered a roll with jalapenos and my girlfriend who can't handle anything spicy. My roll had no jalepenos and hers was full of them. We asked our server what happened and she said the roll my girlfriend ordered always had them and the menu was misprinted. I asked why mine didn't have jalapenos, again it was blamed on a menu misprint. Overall the food wasn't very good and the prices were high :( I have had much better sushi for less. You are paying to be on the beach."
