Sasa Ratings and Reviews
As always, we’re never disappointed. We had cocktails and got involved in our conversation. The waiter checked on us but didn’t pressure us to order. We ordered dumpling, duck buns, pork belly lamp chops and sushi maki. Delicious and the wait staff were friendly and fun.
Absolutely love this restaurant. Best bento box. All the food is amazing. Service is great as well. Our server actually advised us not to order another dish until we had our bento boxes and boy was he right. By the time we had our soup, appetizer and bento box we were full
The atmosphere was amazing, service was great and friendly, and the food was absolutely delicious. Went there for our anniversary and had a blast. The food is obviously not cheap but definitely worth it. The bread pudding was spectacular. And the portions of sushi were pretty filling.
Sasa went the extra mile to make our anniversary celebration a special one. From a complimentary glass of champagne to "Happy Anniversary" printed on the menu, it was made even more special with our server, Justine. She gave suggestions without that pushiness that can come with some staff.
Great meal and even better service.
Dinner was as wonderful as I remember,been here a few times. The server on the other hand was not the best. We at some point asked "have you had enough to drink?"
I am sure she was asking did we wish to have another drink. Also we were asked "have you had enough to eat". We think the server needs some training in this area.
Sorry but we have had excellent service in e past,this time it was a miss. The person did not appear happy to be there and it came across.
One of my favorite restaurants in downtown Walnut Creek. I love this place. The food is delicious. The service is great. I love to eat in the main dinning area near the fountain or outside. I wish the back room had a little more ambiance, but it 's nice if you come to dine here with little ones.
i made an opentable reservation for the counter. got to the restaurant and no one was at the host station. one of the waiters (?) came over, and seated us outside, out on the end closest to the street. my wife said she didn't mind being outside, so i didn't say anything, but bummed that our host didn't recognize the reservation and at least give us the option.
sashimi was fresh. skewers are 'safe' - don't have that charcoal grill char that i was craving.
nice atmosphere inside with a large bar and some lounge style seating, good for Friday night gatherings.
Our group of 6 ordered 11 dishes plus two desserts and loved every single one. Everything was fresh with interesting flavors and textures. Also had an excellent cocktail. Highly recommend the tempura cauliflower, hamachi with citrus and peppercorns, duck with pancakes and terriyaki. Everything was great.
Our Server Vita was outstanding. Pacing of service and food was perfect. Sushi was the best I've ever had!
We ended up eating indoors as there were some loud and obnoxious kids...didn't want that to ruin the experience so we moved indoors...couldn't have been happier with the meal!
Everything was great, food,service, host and our server. The bartender on the other hand was hammered and so loud and annoying. She was trash talking costumers where we could hear. She made us feel a bit uncomfortable. Everything else was amazing, duck tacos, tuna parfait and lettuce wraps as recommended by the server were amazing!
We came to celebrate a birthday. A relaxing evening, the sashimi was delicious with nice portions. The food was served at a good tempo and the menu has some unique dishes. The birthday girl got a very nice green tea dessert. I have been here before and had a great server sitting out on the patio... This time not as great.
This was my first visit, though my guest had been several times and recommended Sasa as one her favorites. The food was excellent and the service was great (thanks Taylor)! Only negatives were the noise level...very loud environment due to the relatively small sapce and number of tables. We were seated in the back "cafeteria" like section which I would not recommend; definitely contributed to the noise level, making casual conversation nearly impossible. The outdoor patio would be ideal but it was too hot this week to sit outside. I will definitely come back again!
