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

The menu tells a story of where the East meets the Far East and dishes span the realm of tapas, kebabs, and sushi. In fact, Sawa means "Togetherness" in Arabic and "Harmony" in Japanese, a perfect key to Sawa's concept of bringing together seemingly separate cuisine elements into one great menu meant to be enjoyed and shared by everyone.

While in business, Sawa has earned numerous awards and recognition for its posh and romantic ambiance, creative cocktails, eclectic cuisine, and chic lounge atmosphere.

Entertainment is also an integral part of Sawa's story, focusing on an upscale dinnertainment concept as dinner guests are enchanted by live professional bellydance shows every weekend while they dine under the stars.

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.

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.
