Our waitress was amazing she went above and beyond
Made our anniversary even more special
Everything was delicious and the service was bright and cheerful!
We’ve been to Sawa several times and it’s pretty consistent. However, this time was absolutelyPERFECT from beginning to end! Our server, Nicole, was awesome! She provided great recommendations and great service. We started with the Tuna TarTar, which was very fresh & tasty. I had the lamb rack (my new favorite) and my husband had the churrasco...both were deeelish! Portions were just right...we will be back more often & will definitely request Nicole!
Very enjoyable and surprisingly so.
Great food and great service. Our server was very attentive and very friendly.

It took over an hour to get our food, it was cold and cooked wrong and we sent it back. The manager argued with us and was very difficult. He never apologized he just argued and was rude. We were very disappointed and will never eat here again.
Wonderful Valentine’s Day celebration they had a wonderful trio playing romantic music,a rose for the women ... the evening was wonderful on the patio and the service and food were wonderful !
The restaurant is in a good location and have a great menu with fair price options. However the service is not their strength, we went there with my husband, the hostess wasn't at her desk an we waited like 10min for her to come back and sit us... apparently nobody else is allow to sit you, then we ordered our drinks, but somehow the couple that arrived after us and had a different server got their drinks and food while we were still waiting for our drinks and nobody had taken of food order yet. Service needs to improve and they would be a great restaurant all around.
We ordered appetizers and main courses. We also ordered a round of drinks. after the drinks arrived we never saw our server again until our main courses arrived. Our apps were not delivered until after we got our main courses and we had finished our drinks well before our main courses came but could not get a second round while we waited for our meals.
Food was excellent. Service was a bit sporadic, meaning our waiter would come by then disappear for an extended period and when we had almost given up hope on ever seeing him again, he’d reappear. He was friendly but not attentive.
Not very good sushi. They something else, if you eat here.
Our Party sat outside and enjoy a beautiful night in Coral Gables. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Excellent service, live belly dancers. We had a great time.
Great happy hour at the bar! Cheap tapas and drinks
It’s just OK. Not bad but nothing to write home about. If you’re a food snob you will find it just ok or maybe not even like it.
We had a lovely lunch outside. Perfect Professional service by Nicole. Healthy, relaxing, delicious! Brussel sprouts were divine!
This would have been a 5 star review except I ordered the grilled octopus as appetizer and the waiter came back to say they were out. I settled for the fried calamari and was disappointed, they were completely flavorless. My fiancé ordered the lamb lollipops and they were so delicious we wished it were an entree. His steak (Ribeye I think) was also very good and so was the Alaskan Roll I ordered. Also, the dancer was entertaining even though she only came out once.
I have been to Sawa many times. This was the first Time the meal was very disappointing. The soup was cold and the rest of the dishes were mediocre at best. It is a shame.
Like to bring out of town guests here as the mediterranian/sushi menu means that, usually, everyonce can find something. As always the food and service were excellent.
We had a cold snap in the weather and they called us a head of time to see if we preferred inside seating over the, usual, outside seating. We appreciated the opportunity to sit inside and that they planned a head.
This is one of our favorite restaurants.
Nice ambiance, large selection of food options, good service. We will definitely be back.
Food was delicious as usual however the steak yakitori was not very hot- must have been sitting a while before it was served. The patatas bravas with short ribs was delicious and could have been a meal by itself. We went during happy hour and it was an Overall good value for the food.
A beautiful experience. Eating lunch in the garden area of Merrick Park was absolutely delightful.
Excellent tapas, soup and desserts. We had a great time and service was excellent.
I have been to Sawa many times and always enjoyed the atmosphere, food and friendly staff.
Unfortunately this evening was terrible. I had made a reservation to sit outside. The hostess put us at a back table next to 4 people smoking a hookah and blowing it in our faces. We asked to be moved to another table away from The smokers. The hostess then seated us and we realized again we were next to hookah smoking. The third time I mentioned an empty table with no smoking around. The hostess got very nasty and told us it was reserved. Well we also reserved a table, she didn’t want us sitting there and told us if we didn’t like the smoking not to come to the restaurant, as they were a hookah restaurant. We were getting ready to leave when a gentleman came over who may have been a manager and gave us the empty table.
The hostess was so rude I don’t think I will ever return. What a shame
They need to put all the hookah smoking in one area.
Always good after several visits food service and ambiance can be counted on
We’ll keep coming back. It wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last. We love SAWA.
They have s varied menu that suits all tastes. Fish, vegans, meat, sushi, Latin ok wine list.
Great new place to try. We were visiting from Broward County to have a late dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday.
Great food and ambiance .
We went for my in laws birthday, she really wanted some Mediterranean food, Sawa was able to deliver that. Everything was delicious, and we will definitely return.
Your best bet are the tapas and kebabs not the sushi.
We had 3 appetizers, the Yakitori, was dry and room temperature, the shrimp avocado summer roll, was almost shrimpless, tasteless and the vegetables inside it looked burned by the cold of refrigeration and not fresh at all. The shrimp pao bun, was hard as a rock on one side, obviously made many hours before. The miso filet mignon was 2 or 3 pieces of a filet, cooked medium as requested, it tasted good and was tenter, but it arrived with ultra burned Brussel sprouts, almost inedible, and not with the shishito peppers and pistachios it mentioned on the menu. The lamb kebab was cooked to order and tasted great. The chocolate soufflé, could have been anything but a soufflé, it was a hard gooey mixture of something very sweet and also arrived without the pistachio ice cream mentioned on the menu. The music was incredibly loud inside and outside at times. Service was amicable, timely and proper.
My first visit here. Just needed a small Mid afternoon snack. I ordered the vegetarian stuffed grape leaves and they were delicious I’ve made the authentic Greek ones and I think I like these even better. My husband had the risotto and he loved it. We will return.
Generally very good.
If eating indoors best to avoid Friday's with a very raucous scene by the bar. The placement of the bar area in the restaurant was not well thought out as its in the way of everybody going around including the wait staff.
But the food is very good nonetheless and innovative.
My husband and I had dinner at Sawa and we loved this restaurant! We sat at an outdoor table which was very nice because we had a view of the lovely fountain at Merrick Park. Although it was a little hot and humid outside, the restaurant has fans and we had one right next to us. We chose our entrees from the Miami Spice menu and everything was excellent. We had the hummus platter as an appetizer, filet mignon with brussel sprouts and banana rolls with ice cream for dessert! We would definitely recommend this restaurant! Excellent service and food!
The service was excellent. The food was tasty and interesting. Great lychee martini.
SAWA was better than i expected...the Miami Spice menu was very good with variety. Bar service was good and the overall service was better than good..I would return.
Although our server was kind and friendly , he was not attentive. I'm not sure if they were understaffed but didn't seem so, so not sure why he would come around every 15-20 minutes. Our dining experience lasted 2.5 hours. The timing of the dishes coming out was horrific. Medium rare meat was beyond well done, pork chops stiff. Not sure if we were just unlucky today but probably will not return.
