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."

Sushi was good, but small. Lamb lollipops were spectacular."

Awful food, horrible service ,
typically rude tourist like treatment, unaccomodating sushi chef...(wouldn't slice my sashimi thin ) water like soup. Loud techno music. I could describe more ways to waste your money here but don't waste yours!"

Not easy to find a good sushi
place in Fort Lauderdale. This is one of the better places. Nice decor, good food. Will be back."

We went to SA1A because we had a
Groupon. Excellent menu choices for Sushi and cooked food. We had sushi appetizers and Sea Bass entree. Enjoyed everything. Will go back with or without Groupon and seats by window facing ocean."

Location, ambiance, and food were
very good. Server knew menu and made good recommendations but was hard to locate and not attentive enough. Sushi was very good and original. Many other choices for those not interested in Sushi.."

I am really content with this
restaurant. The service was superb, the food was delicious and the ambience is breathtaking. I will definitely go again on another romantic occasion."

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."

Very much enjoyed our meal. the
food was fresh and well prepared. The staff was pleasant and helpful but not overbearing."

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."
Dined on 2/1/2014
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."
Dined on 1/31/2014
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."
Dined on 1/25/2014
the food was excellent and they
made a wonderful presentation. It is inside the Ocean B Hotel which is fairly modern as is the restaurant."
Dined on 1/26/2014
Enjoyed our meal and the service
was excellent I ordered a hot sake and then another it cost 38.00 that's a little pricey The lobster bomb was very good and we had sushi which was good too Nice place we were staying at the b ocean hotel"
Dined on 1/24/2014
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."

Some of the best sushi rolls I
have ever had. Very creative and tasty. A little higher priced but worth it!!!"

Too expensive for the
taste.....the service was good, our server was very professional but we received our plates at different times(problem with kitchen)... my friend received his plate over 5minutes before me..... They have a problem with the air conditionning, we received water from the sealing. We had to move."

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."

This was our first visit to Saia.
We had a great table right by the window. Everything we ordered was very tasty and properly prepared as ordered. It looked like the wait staff was short a few members, and the sushi bar seemed slow to respond. The ventilation system is challenged as we variously were blasted with deep fryer aroma, as if we were seated right next to it which we were not. This is not the first sushi restaurant where we have experienced this same problem. The food is good enough that if Saia can work out the logistical details, 5 stars would be an easy rating to give them."
Dined on 12/28/2013
The food, the specialty cocktails,
the atmosphere and most importantly the service was superb. We we're entertained and had amazing food. Try the miso scallops and the lamb loli pops!! To die for!"
Dined on 12/8/2013
The signature rolls were not
impressive. We ordered one that had to much green and red peppers inside that you couldn't taste the fish at all. The tuna tartar was full of panko bread crumbs that were not needed at all. The two bottles of champagne that we ordered were not cold enough. Waitress not too knowledgeable of the menu items, she just kept recommending us "her favorite" items. The sushi chefs seemed bored behind the bar. Individual sashimi pieces are overpriced for just one piece, they should at least cut two pieces like at any other sushi bar. The rest of the pricing was ok, though."
Dined on 11/22/2013
Great sushi with interesting
tapas. Always a good time The only downside (and it's small) is its 5$ valet parking at the B Ocean hotel but have never had a bad experience there and taken a variety of people for different occasions. Very cool place"
Dined on 11/9/2013
While I normally applaud a place
that keeps a limited menu, it was almost too limited for our group. Sushi rolls were creative, but you could only get signature style rolls; regular sushi offerings were non existent. Also they didn't have any noodle soups, which is almost mandatory at an Asian restaurant. Moreover, the owner/chef is Thai, and there weren't any Thai dishes at all. A little disappointing. Some of the dishes were terrific, including the off-menu lobster roll and fried lobster chunks. The trio of fish tartare tasted as if it was made much earlier in the day, and it came with no chips or crunchiness at all; definitely needed some other texture to counterpoint the raw fish. Individual sushi pieces fresh and tasty."

Everything was amazing. The Miso
soup.... I could eat it everyday and still want more. Service was quick and accommodating."

Food was great, service was even

We had the pleasure of eating at
Saia for my fiancé's 30th birthday and my 33rd birthday. We had big expectations going into the restaurant as we are getting married at the B Ocean in November. Our server, Sandro, was beyond exceptional. His recommendations were spot on and the food was absolutely outstanding. The fire dragon roll and garlic hamachi roll were unbelievable. The only thing that beat the sushi rolls were the dessert rolls. The tempura fried banana and Shiso leaf banana spring roll were so sweet and savory that they complimented the entire meal. Kaine, the general manager, was also very attentive and beyond personal the entire evening. This eatery is a must from a night one the town to a mini stay-cation."

SAIA is a gorgeous restaurant with
amazing beach views. Food was mediocre however. Two large groups came in while I was there and the staff seemed to be handling them well, which was a good sign."

Delicious Asian food, great decor,
beachfront location ideal & valet parking convenient! Looking forward to going back."
