Sava's Restaurant, originally Sava's State Street Cafe, opened June of '07 at a small location across from our current space. We started small, every year adding, changing, and working with our customers to achieve an atmosphere and menu that we were proud of. The quaint cafe was merely a jumping off point for the elaborate expansion that later followed. In August of '09 we opened Sava's Restaurant in the beautiful location we're in today, making a name for ourselves based on great service, a young, welcoming atmosphere, & delicious dishes.
We cater to a wide range of clientele, including students, professors, townies, out-of-towners – we open our doors to everyone. From our eclectic menu our best dishes are homemade, with quality ingredients from local vendors. We like Michigan beef, produce, and beer! Join us and experience Sava's for yourself!

I have been to savas many times. Sadly, this time was very disappointing. Our waiter told us that they are upgrading their menu. This was disappointing because there was not many options on the menu that they had. I ordered a sandwich and when it came out, it looked like an appetizer. It was very small. I was disappointed because I use to love coming to savas for a good meal but this time wasn’t it. I hope when the upgraded menus come out, I will be willing to go back but for right now, I’m not planning on going back.

Excellent service, our waiter was attentive, helpful, and nice. The Bistro omelette was delicious and would highly recommend. My friend got the sweet potato latkes which were very tasty. We had a seat upstairs overlooking the downstairs and it was very lovely.

We were there for a bite to eat before a concert at the Michigan Theater. Loved the food, the ambiance, and the service.

We went for lunch on a Sunday early afternoon before a show at the Michigan Theater. Luckily we made a reservation in advance as they were quite busy. Very friendly staff greeted us at the hostess stand, and our server was just delightful, very friendly and accommodating. All three of us had to decide between several options that all sounded wonderful. As busy as they were, we were finished in plenty of time to make our show on time. I would definitely go back (to try some of the things we didn't order!), and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sava's to friends.
