I went to Sawa for mother day and I sat outside and everything was perfect. The view, weather, food, etc., I couldn’t ask for anything better. However, I went back for Father’s Day and we sat inside because of the heat and the experience was totally different. Tables are on top of each other. It feels like you are eating with someone else next to. The bathroom are closed to the kitchen that by the way looks very dirty and bathrooms were not clean and this was almost when they opened. I am not sure if I will go back after seen the kitchen
All was great, just not enough vegan options.... but our waiter was very knowledgable and made sure we did not get cross contamination from animal products... Loved him.... Scott
The server acted as wish she was doing anything but what she was doing and we tried to engage her in conversation and couldn’t get a response.
Waiters were wonderful, food was excellent and Happy Hour Menu was phenomenal!
Child and teen also had a great time.
Nice place. Good food and excellent quality/price ratio.
We were a party of 9 and we all had great food with one minor exception on the tenderness of a beef meal.
Drinks, hummus platter for our table and 9 meals came in at a strong 9.5/10 !!
Very nice setting, service impeccable, good food, nice performance by a belly dancer. Highly recommended.
We love Nicole!
Food and service was good. It's in the Merrick park shopping area so it it what it is. sort of confused about being charged $1.50 extra for blue cheese stuffed olives in my martini. never seen that done before, but overall good.
Nicole was fabulous!!!
good food and good ambiance great for lunch and dinner
Great service, very good selection of happy hour tapas, and the service is always outstanding! And the best part is the outdoor seating in a beautiful setting with these perfect Miami spring evenings!!
Great place. Service was efficient, menu had great options
The belly dancer was terrific, especially for little kids.
Great outdoor setting!
Waiter attentive. Food excellent. Still-price is very high.
Food was good. Service was blah.
Great food service could be better
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.
Our waitress Nicole
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.
