Decided to go out for something a little nicer in Ann Arbor. Despite not being by many of the other high-end restaurants on Main Street, Sava's was fabulous. The interior decor and candles made for a soft glow. We had the Chicken Fusilli w/Goat Cheese and Sun dried tomatoes, the flourless chocolate cake, and the polenta fries--HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It was...

We went for breakfast, and sat at the bar. The bartender was very attentive and helpful at making suggestions for food and drink!

This place is probably the trendiest I've ever been to, but they pull it off well. There's a large crowd around when you'd expect it, and it's well deserved. The food here is some of the best I've ever had; the cuban sandwich is delicious and comes with great fries.

Attended a private party brunch at Sava's recently. Seemed to be the most popular spot in the downtown for breakfast. Reserved a semi-private room and was impressed with the impeccable service to our party. The food was served family style which was great as kids were present and they ate as fast as it arrived. Bacon, waffles and fruit were... More

Went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning, and even though they were busy, the service was very good. Lots of items to choose from on the menu with great omlettes.

This is a lovely place to have lunch. You can sit in- or outside. Enough on the menu to please my 2 daughters as well. Healthy lunch options and vegetarian dishes on the menu. Service is good.

During a trip to tour UM, my family went to Sava's for dinner. We were greeted and seated by a friendly hostess and our waiter was helpful and very nice. Besides the great food, the atmosphere was wonderful.

Sava's is the perfect location for most dining experiences - for a casual lunch with friends, a birthday celebration, or a quiet date night! Every visit I've had has been superb - the attention to detail on the cocktails and food is outstanding, and the service top notch! The Blood Orange Mule is a favorite cocktail - a nice twist...

Sava's has it all rolled into one neat package. The atmosphere is stylish. The acoustics are good - there is a buzz but you have no problem maintaining a comfortable conversation with others. The service was attentive. The food was very well prepared and presented in an artful way. I suppose my only note would be that the dinner menu... More

We sat on the second level overlooking the main dining floor. The food was delicious. We had a mushroom spaghettini and a burger with a fried egg. It wasn't the largest menu but there was certainly a variety to chose from. I think service could have been a little better but nothing that wouldn't keep me from returning.
