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.

Food was great, but service was poor waited over 20 mins for a drink. Great location for outdoor seating. Love the belly dancer was very entertaining.
It was a nice experience, food was really good however the service was not very impressive!
Food was not served hot and or at this same time. If you are ordering Sushi, be prepared to wait. I have visited several times and was taken aback with my experience.
great happy hr menu, the vibe was nice. Sat outside - lovely view. There was a show with a belly dancer - entertaining.
Food took usually longer today than ever before. That’s a first.
Excellent food and beautiful ambiance. Drinks were slow to come but the food always came quickly. Overall would recommend.
We were visiting from NJ so we really enjoyed the outdoor dining experience at SAWA. The ambience was nice despite being in a shopping mall. The food and service were excellent. The 2 kitchen concept - one Japanese and the other Mediterranean, was nice especially when you can’t decide what cuisine you’re in the mood for. For example, my wife had Mediterranean appetizers and Sushi rolls for dinner.
Outstanding! Food, service, ambiance and professionalism were awesome.
Great drinks and food
Can't beat the outside seating arrangements and food quaility.
Sawa has a great menu of both Japanese and Mediterranean food. Everything was prepared and cooked well. My only suggestion would be to serve better pita bread with the hummus...make crispy chips with the pita and cut them into triangles...the hummus was very good and the pita was nothing special, like you'd buy at the grocery store. The service was good, but because the outside area is so big, there were times when there were no servers available. Otherwise, I thought the food was very good.
Great outside seating set up. We felt extremely comfortable. Food was great and will be back to check different options.
Great experience - great happy hour!
As always the food was great. Note: We stick to Tapas and the Mediterranean fare. Service was a little inattentive, considering it was a week. That said, it was nice out to be dinning outdoors
Excellent as always. The food, service, and overall experience is great.
Came here on a busy Saturday night so I was very surprised that our food and appetizers came out quickly and everything tasted great.
Got a table at the entrance to the restaurant that we did not like, asked for a table further away in the garden as my partner is high risk for COVID, and we like to be further away from everybody passing by.
Food was great and the ambience was nice as well
Great restaurant!! the food was delicious. For appetizer we had the margarita pizza and for entree we had churrasco, they were both splendid; definitely recommend.
Me fascinó la comida , muy bien elaborada y fresca, la señora que nos atendió súper amable . Lo recomiendo para cualquier ocasión.
It was amazing everything
The food is very tasty and the portions are large
Excellent. Good food and comfortable.
Superb dining experience from start to finish! We were seated right away by the friendly hostess on their lovely patio (one of my favorite places in Miami to dine outdoors!). Waiter explained they are tapas style and have 3 separate kitchens, so we took his advice and ordered everything to share and enjoyed receiving the plates bit by bit. Food was great. Cocktails were well made and balanced. Service was informed and above par for Miami. And the ambiance was perfection. This place is a gem! I will be back.
It's a great location. Parking is easy. I wasn't impressed with the food. It was really just average. Thought maybe it was what I had. My friend wasn't that thrilled with hers either. It was okay. A bit pricey for just "okay."
Beautiful sitting outside among the palm trees. Food was delicious and a wide variety. My son loves sushi and he was not disappointed!
Food was incredible. Menu offers a little of everything for everyone in your party.
Horrible service. Construction happening above us while we ate. Complained about it but nothing ever done. Food was not worth the horrible rude service staff.
Love the beautiful outdoor ambience of this restaurant — they have the best location you could ask for. Five of us came together to celebrate a friend’s birthday and because it was so open and airy, we felt comfortable in the location. The food was delicious, and the servers were wonderful, even bringing a complimentary dessert to our birthday person. My sushi rolls were first rate, and that can be difficult to pull off for restaurants that also offer a large variety of cooked traditional dishes. Highly recommend Sawa for dinner!
Good safety measures ( tables are spaced). Good food, excellent service. Great ambiance.
Fantastic happy hour and incredible ambiance. Great food, fantastic drinks and amazing service. Thanks Jay for such top quality service and attention.
Jose is the absolute best Manager/bartender. He knows exactly what great food to recommended and he’s funny while being sweet and super attentive to your needs. I had a fantastic time for the Super Bowl and it was all because of him. Well the food and the ambiance were terrific as well. Lol will come back again. Also Sawa has one of the best Happy Hours I have ever seen innCoral Gablea and Miami. How more people don’t know about it is beyond me.
All very nice. Large menu. Outdoor seating.
This is a favorite!!!! Outside tables well distanced, spent a few hours enjoying tapas & good wine. We had the Grilled Octopus, Ham Croquetas, Kibbe, Kefta Fingers, Lentil Soup, Short ribs with Patatas Bravas. Great way to spend an afternoon
Be aware there are two separate kitchens one for the Japanese half of the menu and one for the Mediterranean half of the menu. Orders are served as ready in a tapas style. So if you order one entrée from the Japanese side of the restaurant and one from the Mediterranean they may not come out together. Our entrées came out 15 minutes apart. Not acceptable. The manager came to our table and comped us two drinks and a dessert. I will go back to the restaurant as the food and ambience were very nice.
Great date place
We always have a great experience at Sawa! Tasty food & wonderful atmosphere.
Great restaurant for this time of year, outdoors. Food and ambiance excellent!
Decent food, stick to tapas though- had to send back my entree as it came 40mins later and was tasteless. Service very slow - he was batch ordering... which meant we got drinks very slowly.
Excellent all around!! Food, Ambience and service.
