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.

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
Danny was the best ever!! would go back and always want to sit in his area..
Very nice food, everything tastes amazing. Totally recommended!
Great service and food, environment, everything very nice
Went there for a birthday dinner on Valentine’s Day and it was great!
Our server was amazing
He knew his menu! Was very attentive. Something very difficult to find in Miami! Thumbs up
Excellent food and cocktails! Our waiter Danny was spectacular and very attentive..overall experience was beautiful
Great food. Best server. Lotus roll my fave!
My wife and I were going to an 8 pm movie and decided to try SAWA. We enjoyed the entire experience and recommend it highly. Having small, tapas meals was especially nice as we did not overeat and were able to try a few different things, 4 to be exact.
Outstanding presentation and great taste.
Great service from Michelle. Food came out on time and everything tasted delicious. Nice ambiance
Food not well prepared.
Great service and excellent food
This place was great. Food was delicious. Drinks, bangin’. The calamari is serious. And the sampler is very good. It was a beautiful late afternoon and evening, and it was awesome sitting outside in that setting. I only have one complaint, and that is directed at the hostess. She takes us to our table, and it’s right next to a big dog at the table next to us. I said I preferred not to eat there by the dog. She says loudly and with disgust towards me, “Oh you don’t like dogs.” That wasn’t what I said I told her. But she stormed off to show us to the next table like I was a dang killer or scum of the earth. Because I didn’t want to eat my meal and enjoy the company of my beautiful wife next to a dog. I wasn’t feeling that at all.
Other than that, place was great. I will be back, next time with our three kids.
Just a very enjoyable Dining experience.
The staff has the best actitude, however the food is overpriced for its quality!
My second Christmas ant the food and service are amazing i recommend it 100% and i loved the beautiful christmas tree
Delicious sushi and drinks. The service could have been slightly prompter, especially waiting for the tab. But overall an excellent experience, will be returning!
