One of our favorite places to dine. The menu changes and the food is always very good and fresh. Never had a bad meal over the years. Staff is always eager to please, and courteous.

Had lunch here today for the first time. Had a Greek salad that was very nicely done. Lots of chopped olives, pepperoncini, and beets with an excellent feta crumble, sliced sweet onions and a yogurt dressing that was neither too sweet or savory. I also had the Tomato Bisque which the menu states comes with "cheese curds", but it's actually... More

Excellent place to go for drinks and small plates after work, especially in the warmer weather when the side patio is open. Sweet potato fries are a must!

The staff are very nice, and the food is good. It is easy to have conversations. You can add things to dishes to customize them to your taste.

Great brunch on a hockey/hoop weekend. From drinks to the food to the service; just excellent. Brianna took care of us; seeing us through a nice 2hr brunch which included breakfast and lunch items. Great for sharing. Make reservations.

The place has charm. I love the tiled floor that begins outside the entrance. I love the tables and the chairs, even the menu is attractive.. The place is well designed. I love the fresh flowers and the colors. The service was great. The food was fantastic!!! Very fresh and very flavorful. I can't wait to return!!!

Just stop there recently for a late lunch. It is a bustling, hip restaurant. The service was excellent. Everybody at the table was pleased with their choices. I chose the croque monsieur which was yummy! I would definitively go back to Sava's given the chance.

Visited U Michigan for the day and was recommended to try this place out. Definitely had a nice breakfast but for two issues. One the waitress was not so nice. Two the price. My dish included sausage which I don't eat. Waitress asked if I wanted to substitute a bowl a fruit for the sausage but failed to tell me... More
