Food was just okay. Service was fair-slow and not very attentive. Wasn't impressed. Heard the owner(asked who she was) chiding employee in a terse tone- extremely unprofessional and unkind. She could use some "how to treat people that work for you" lessons. Won't return

The food and service are always excellent at this Ann Arbor staple. Their salads are among my favorites anywhere. You can tell the quality of a place if the salad contains the freshest of ingredients and here they do. Excellent entrees too. And do not miss the sweetie fries!! Yum!!!!!

Our first visit to Sava's. Food overall was excellent, ambiance was nice, acoustics allowed for table conversation, servers were friendly, facility allowed for room between diners. Minor gripes: luke-warm coffee, bottled beverage not cold enough, tasty but small-portion desserts for $9 a pop. Overall, a very pleasant evening. Would try it again.

I have eaten here several times since my daughter has become a UMich student. I've had brunch, lunch and dinner and we always leave saying that we have had a great meal. Fish tacos are excellent, and the Greek Salad with the amazing pink dressing is always good.

Never had bad food from here. I have been 5 or so times and ordered different things every time and have walked out happy. A bit pricy but worth it. I recommend their sweet potato fries!

I stopped here while walking around downtown Ann Arbor. I stopped in for lunch and they seated me right away. I ended up ordering a salmon burger and fries. They were delicious. I ordered a coffee afterwards, and that was really good as well. Be aware it is a strong cup of coffee. Overall I thought it was an excellent... More

If you visit Ann Arbor, be sure to go to Sava's for breakfast or lunch. The food is excellent, and there are many healthy choices. Portion sizes are large. We recommend trying different things and sharing. The atmosphere is lovely, and it's a great place to meet friends and talk. No one will rush you away. The coffee is excellent!

I had a group dinner at Sava's, and the service and quality of food was second to none. Even though we had a large group (14), we had everything arrive at the same time, and the quality of my meal was fantastic! I had the fish and chips, which were excellent, and the beer was ice cold. I will definitely... More
