We have been getting take-out from SASA for almost a year, but now that my husband and I are fully vaccinated, we were anxious to dine in again; we weren’t disappointed! The food, especially the SASA fries, was all delicious, and the service was wonderful! But what really impressed us the most was what they have done to keep the staff and the patrons safe. Not only are tables, at the very minimum, 6 feet apart, but there are partitions everywhere, including at the bar. Sanitation goes on constantly after someone leaves, and we couldn’t have felt more safe and protected. They really know how to do it right! We’ll be back again soon!

Lovely as usual!!! So happy Sasa weathered the pandemic and has not lost a bit of its warmth and comfort.
The “Rock” delicious as ever, Sasa fries an absolute must and my personal favorite-best comfort food on a cold night-miso lobster bisque with crab cake.

SASA is always great. Great people. Great food. Scott Kim is an awesome chef and food is always great. And the menu is amazing. Something for everyone. Plus many of the choices are small portions so you can enjoy a number of great dishes.

We haven't been to Saas for a while. They have the best sushi around and my family and I enjoyed the food immensely, especially the lobster rolls and turo, which is hard to come by in NE Ohio. They also have a very nice selection of cocktails and sake. Can't wait to go back.

SASA is awesome. Scott Kim offers so many delicious dishes and each one is prepared with such attention to detail. The fact that most items come out in small portions lets you try so many amazing options. SASA is one of our favorite places. We love it.

We love Sasa and the Sasa fries are amazing enough that we have them every time we eat here. For that matter, everything we have had here is always tasty. We love the small plates. That's why we come back again and again and again.

The food at SASA was outstanding. Very inventive and delicious. Great seasoning and combinations. The service was excellent. The waiter was very helpful. The sound level was atrocious. We couldn't hear ourselves over the din. We will try it on a quieter night because Saturday was too noisy for us.

The best Japanese restaurant I have ever been to! Our party of 6 ordered about 10 small dishes and had an amazing feast. I loved everything including an exquisite glass of Pinot Noir and a creme brûlée trio that was heavenly - not things you usually find in a Japanese restaurant. It was a little noisy and fairly pricey - but it was all worth it for such great food.

Our family ate here on Christmas Eve, hoping for a light meal before all of the heavy holiday eating ahead of us. Well that was the plan at least. The menu was very expansive with so many enticing items to try that we ended up eating a lot more than we had planned for! Everything was very tasty and well-presented. Our server was very knowledgeable and conscientious of our table members. I wish I could remember his name to give him a shout out. We all enjoyed our meal and the restaurant.

Best kept secret is maybe the french fries which, oddly enough, are probably the best I have ever tasted in America. The sushi is also very good. What makes the experience is the service. We had the NICEST server going - she made the evening for us.
