My wife and I both enjoyed the tomato bisque. The salmon had a very nice horseradish sauce. The service was attentive and everyone was friendly. I will be back.

Had my birthday dinner at Saveeda’s. The food was a out of this world. We had the shrimp fra Diablo pimento dip for appetizer for dinner we had the cream rosemary lemon chicken with risotto n the ahi tuna dish words can not describe how good these dishes are. The wine n desserts also perfect the service was great n atmosphere perfect for any occasion they get a 10 +++in our book.

The food and service at Saveeda's is consistently excellent. We had the dinner special, the filet mignon with a crab cake, hollandaise sauce and mashed potatoes. It was cooked exactly like we wanted it to be and it was soooo tasty. The wait staff there is always polite, friendly, and knowledgeable. We love this local little gem!

Saveeda’s had hosted a birthday party for my mother a month ago, but tonight was her actual birthday. Service was very gracious, food was delicious, wine selection was good, nice quiet atmosphere. Only way it could have been better is if they were in a better location than at the end of a shopping center, but I don’t hold that against them! We had a very fine evening.

Very reasonably priced bistro with friendly, knowledgeable staff. The food selection was varied - something for everyone, the atmosphere was conducive to having a conversation; it's just a slightly upscale place to have a lunch or dinner where you can feel completely comfortable.

First time here. The restaurant is a quaint, dimly lit family- romantic atmosphere. The elegance and ambiance was exactly what I was looking for. I like to try different things and the menu did not disappoint. I was pleasantly surprised by the rich flavors and texture of The Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna. It’s was a perfect choice except I would’ve preferred it cooked in low sodium soy sauce as it was a little bit strong for my taste. The service was excellent! Steven our waiter was obviously very experienced, charismatic and attentive to our needs. Great place!!! Will Definitely be back!!!

We have brought friends to Saveeda's and everyone has loved everything about it. We especially like the crab cakes since we lived in Maryland for 10 years and know what crab cakes should be like. Quite honestly, their crab cakes exceed some of those served in restaurants in Maryland. Go and enjoy.

The waiter was not very good. Not enough attention to drinks, water and etc.
My turkey burger was bone dry. Basically, it was too dry and charred to eat.

Outstanding Rib Eye cooked to perfection, very good roasted beet salad. Not so great flat bread pizza on what was more like an over thick very chewy pita than a true flat bread pizza. Great service by the entire team.

This was our fourth time at Saveedas and we have always found the food and service to be excellent. This evening our server was very intrusive during both drinks, dinner and dessert. It was clear that she was ready to leave for the night even as we were relaxing with dessert. She noisily cleaned up all of the areas around us, dragging chairs and interrupting conversations. The bar area still had several diners so it didn’t make sense that we were made to feel rushed. There are many restaurant choices in the Charlotte area and we love to support small business which is why we kept introducing friends to Saveedas. I’ll think twice about going back.

Food was ok, but uneven. Didn’t reach the level to which the restaurant strives. Coupon acceptance was a bit grudging and did not abide by the terms. Overall, it was ok.

Small restaurant. When we walked in there was a party of 18-20 seated. The Polenta was not fully cooked which was served under Salmon. The latter was very good but even so/ it did not pair well with the Cooked Polenta. Expensive.

Typically, the food here is consistent however, there was a large party and they could not accommodate that many orders going in at one time. Unfortunately, the smaller "bistro" parties were the ones that suffered in food quality.

Fries were not fully cooked, it was more semi cooked potatoes than fries and missing Parmesan. Best menu items of scallops and tuna no longer available. Quality has declined from previous visits, which is disappointing because we’ve lived this restaurant. If chefs changed than you need to get the old chef back.

ALWAYS a delicious meal. New menu is fantastic. The service top notch!!

The venue is intimate so unfortunately the management can’t be held responsible for the rude behavior of oblivious, boisterous customers - usually it’s very nice, but this Saturday evening there was a large group speaking in a manner that says they weren’t aware of families dining around them.
