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.
Lots of happy hour choices at great prices
I loved this place. Very relaxing, professional service and good quality food. Unfortunately, hookah isn’t allowed but it should be back soon.
Food was fresh and delicious. No hookahs because of the mall.
I've been to this restaurant many times and it always is a great experience. The food is delicious and the service was great.
The salmon kabobs are well seasoned. Loved my Mango Tango Martini as well. Can't wait to go back.
Two of us dining. One was served 30 minutes before the other received their food and it was brought out only after we complained. The grilled octopus was great but the mahi ceviche was totally tasteless. The two redeeming factors: the place was lovely and our waiter AMAZING!
Excellent all around! Good Covid restrictions and practices, even in the indoor seating.
Always great to visit there. On-site parking is a hassle though.
As always yummy food and service. Always sitting outside due to Covid. Had brunch with my friends Sunday. Needed to move seats since they no longer have the fans running outside in the courtyard. I was told this was due to the circuits overloading. So they only have them outside by the front door and archway underpass. We had to move our seats in that area due to the heat. Not nearly as nice an ambiance. However, the food, drinks and service were great as always.
It took the server 20 minutes to bring tap water to our table. Then we ordered our food; a mushroom flatbread and 3 sushi rolls. The flatbread was tasteless and the sushi rolls were so small that even a 5 year old would still be left hungry. When I mentioned this to an employee, because my server was never available. I was told that was the size of the roll. That the speciality rolls were larger.
Miami Spice lunch menu was a great choice. The environment was very good for lunch as well as the food and drink mimosas special.
Great ambience! I tried this restaurant out for Miami Spice and loved it ! The duck was delicious and so was the shrimp appetizer. Looking forward to come back and try their sushi !
Lots of comfortable outdoor sitting. A huge variety of foods and drinks
Went here for my birthday with some friends on a Sunday. There was plenty of seating outside and wasn't very busy at all. They have great cocktails and the food was honestly very good. The service was also on point.
As always SAWA is great. The food is great, the protocol for Covid followed and the views beautiful. During the Pandemic I am not comfortable eating inside so this is a great way to see a friend for lunch and stay safe. I come several times a month and always happy with service, safety and food. I sure hope they continue to keep a lower occupancy and masks even though De Santis is lifting restaurant restrictions.
Beautiful setting outside, with tables spaced 6 ft apart.
Food always very good, as is the service.
Loved the food. Great service.
Excellent experience. Can't wait to go again !
Love the happy hour!!
excellent services !!!great food !!!
Our server was not good at all. We were a party of 4 getting a couple of appetizers and sushi boat. We ordered it and the plates were dirty. We had no chopsticks. He only brought us one soy sauce for 4 people? He did not ask how everything was. Did not come to check up on us. He was rushing us to put our order in. First time here and I wasn’t impressed. Paid over $50 for a sushi boat that was supposed to come with two rolls and only came with one. My sister had her food come way before the boat and by the time she finished we still didn’t have the boat on our table. We had to ask like 3 people to get our water refilled.
Great dining experience! Great restaurant option for outdoor seating! Great ambiance.
I go often. Food is always excellent! Great quality sushi.
Surprisingly outstanding. We had tons of tapas and they were very very good. The only thing I would suggest is that the waiter make you aware that they bring things out as they are ready and offer you the opportunity to put in parts of your order in the order you would like to receive them at the table because too much came at once in the heavier hot stuff that normally one would eat later either was going to get cold or we had to eat it first and then didn't really want the lighter stuff
Sawa was fantastic. The setting is gorgeous - outside at Shops at Merrick Park. The food was delicious! We had the Mediterranean Sampler to start. It was amazing - hummus, feta, baba ganoush, olives, tomatoes and pita. Yum!! I had the lamb kebab with almond jasmine rice. The lamb was absolutely delish - the spices were so good. One of my sons had the salmon which he said was great; the other had sushi which (and he eats it a lot) he said was fantastic. We really enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere and service was great! I highly recommend Sawa. Would absolutely go again!
Wonderful experience, great ambiance and great food.
Very Good food and very good service . Thanks for my Bday cake , was delicious.
High standards continue through these testing times.
Good food, but all of the sides are a la carte which i did not care for much. Also, they kept trying to hurry us up because we were the last reservation at 8:30 PM (Restaurant was completely empty) and there was still about 45 minutes left before they close, and that's AFTER we received our food. Ordered a kids burger and it was way over done and super hard. I would say that overall, the restaurant is mediocre at most.
Love Sawa! One of my favorite places to go in Coral Gables. I've never eaten anything there that I didn't like. They have a varied menu. Something to satisfy every palate. Beautiful place to sit outside and enjoy the view.
Great place and super yummy good!!
Seated quickly on a hot day outside. Jay showed us how to use the online menu, made sure our waters were constantly refreshed and made us feel very comfortable in light of the changes required due to COVID-19. Food came out quickly.
Amazing food, service impeccable, the only thing is they were reforming so we had to use the bathroom from other restaurant and they didn’t have all the drinks and my salmon sashimi 😭
We meet really at the beginning of COVID re-opening
So there were many news ‘ways’
But the servers adapted very well
Made us welcomed & comfortable
A little choppy - but working hard to get their routines
Very happy experience
The service was very friendly and the food was delicious with a lot of variety. Dining in today's conditions seems risky but the team at Sawa appeared to be very careful, cautious and clean. Menus are via QR code, I saw the table cleaners spraying down even each chair, people bringing food were wearing gloves, and everyone had masks. I felt very safe. Well done Sawa, will be back very soon!
Food was excellent
Our server was fantastic! (Michael from Hawaii) He was very attentive to minute details and extremely professional! He provided excellent service. One complaint: the patio seating area was very dirty, the sofas had food from a previous group left on them, along with dirty plates and food wrappers - yuck!
Es un restaurante ubicado en un centro comercial, tiene mesas al aire libre y mesas bajo techo. Es una fusión entre asiático y mediterráneo. La comida y presentación son excelentes
