Even if we spent 20$, good costumer service should be a priority and that floor manager missed the memo. However, the owner, Savanna figured it out and saved the day

                                                      Overall the service is great, our waiter was very helpful and friendly. From the food we ordered we enjoy the fried squid and tuna roll the most. The Dan Dan noodles were okay not the best, the nigiri was okay as well but average. The oysters were good. The virgin drinks are by far the best we’ve had full of flavour. The cream brûlée dessert was good also but missing the wow factor. Experience was nice it’s a beautiful location. I would recommend for anyone who likes creative drinks. We enjoy their fish options so hopefully the other menu options are good as well!

                                                      Hannah our hostess was lovely. She was patience and accommodating to our group. Food were amazing. Portion on the smaller side however we did not mind reordering. Food came very quickly. Will definitely visit again.

                                                      Absolutely great! The food is worth every cent!!! True luxury… little flaw was that our waitress forgot our drink orders when she only had two tables to serve, but she made up for it very well! Nice ambiance too, the dj is on point! Everything is actually!!!

                                                      So disappointed. Went here with high hopes. Saw the server only to take order then to bill. Couldn’t find him anytime we needed anything, had to ask the manager and even he didn’t seem to care about the servers absence. Overall the service really affected the evening negatively. Won’t be recommending or going back.

                                                      Nice location but we received our food before our drinks. The food was definitely overpriced and the quality and taste was subpar at best. Overall we were underwhelmed by our experience

                                                      First time dining here and I will definitely go back. The drinks was good and the food amazing. The kitchen was kind enough to accommodate our slight change to the menu. Awesome place.

                                                      We had an amazing experience at Savana Lounge. First off I love patronizing black owned business and the owner Savana really brought something new to the restaurateur Ottawa scene. From the interior decor, to the ambience, the service and not to forget the food and drinks. My friend had the pork tenderloins and I opted for the Summer Pesto Rigatoni. We both thoroughly enjoyed our food and the complimentary glass of champagne was such a nice touch. We even got to meet with the owner herself who was so friendly and open to any feedback we were willing to give. Overall we had a great time and I’m already looking for the next occasion to come back
