    Good place for an intimate meal or birthday dinner. A little overpriced, but the food is good. Sunday brunch is worth trying.

    I used to go to Sava's frequently but tend to avoid it now as I feel their standards have deteriorated. For quality and quantity, the food is overpriced and wait staff not the most attentive.

    Delicious breakfast menu that's served until 3:00pm and above average coffee. The space is huge and the noise level is moderate so you can still hold a conversation. Dope pancakes for sure.

    The black bean burger is very citrusy and southwest tex-mex. Bloody Mary's are good. Get a high top table or booth in the back.

    Sava's just isn't the same as what it used to be when they were in that hole in the wall across the street. Their service is pretty terrible too.
