Mediterranean
Sawa Restaurant & Lounge opened with a contemporary Mediterranean & Japanese dual-concept cuisine in early 2010 in the beautiful upscale Shops at Merrick Park.

Sawa's dual-concept tapas-centric menu was created to encourage a shareable dining experience. The menu tells a story of when the East meets the Far East and the unique offerings of contemporary Mediterranean & Japanese dishes merge an innovative sushi menu with a memorable ensemble of tapas and entrees. Guests can explore traditional Lebanese dishes, such as hummus, kibbeh, and falafel and expand into nouveau Mediterranean and Japanese flavors, as Sawa fuses together creative cuisine elements into one great menu.

While Sawa is known for its inclusive & creative menu and beautiful outdoor ambiance, entertainment is also an integral part of Sawa's story, focusing on an upscale eater-tainment concept as dinner guests are enchanted by live professional bellydance shows every weekend.

    Lauren & Laura were gracious, professional and very efficient! I wish we had service like that at every restaurant. The lamb lollipops were so tasty and juicy we had to order place a second order. The tuna and sushi were fresh and the calamari was excellent! Although it was a sweltering 90 degrees the servers made sure we were comfortable by placing fans around us. Great experience!

    The table reserved was good and the waitress was very helpful. The fact that the restaurant ran out of chicken on Mother's Day at 5:30 PM was ridiculous. My wife does not eat meat and is allergic to seafood. We ate some appetizers. The second choice for the chicken kabobs were some dumplings. The chicken and pork kabobs were tasteless. The steamed pork kabobs were completely cold and couldn't be identified as pork. The Brussel sprouts were so salty you couldn't eat them. We only ate part of the dinner and left everything behind. Needless to say, my wife and daughter were very disappointed for Mother's Day. We will not be back again.

    The quality of the food was overall not very good. This unfortunately is a trend we have noticed over the past couple of years. You can also see some deterioration of the place just in general, the bathrooms are in poor shape, same as the menus, etc. I do have to note that our server was excellent, and she made the best of efforts for us to have a good experience. I hope this restaurant turns things around soon
