    I was really looking forward to trying this place and was pretty disappointed in the sushi. We got three different rolls and they were all very mediocre and not at all worth the price. The service was fine but I wouldn’t recommend coming here for sushi. I can’t speak on how the tapas are. Very disappointing

    We had a large party and I was notified ahead of time that we wouldn’t be able to sit together because their max party size was 8. They allowed us to sit in the same area and was very accommodating. The food was delicious. We had crab cakes, chicken skewers, pork gyoza, California roll, snow mountain roll, calamari, shrimp pad Thai (amazing), and shrimp yakiudon just to name a few things at the table. Alexis (I think that was her name) was our waitress and she was amazing as well. Kept our drinks full, came to check on us consistently. Helped with the menu and never looked stressed or overwhelmed even though she had a lot of tables. Overall it was a really great experience for our first time there and I’ll definitely be back and I will for sure recommend it to others.

    Morgan is the one of the best server there- she is kind and lovely to all. She also recommends the best sushi. Always an amazing experience- cheers to Brenda- she runs one amazing restaurant and always greets all her patrons no matter how busy she can get. Sushi is the best- fresh and unique dishes. The sake sushi is one of my favorite

    Sasa is our go-to place for special occasions. We had not been since pre-Covid, so we were really looking forward to our meal. As always, Sasa was wonderful in all ways: food was amazing (especially the Sasa fries and the shrimp yakiudon), service impeccable, ambiance perfect.

    We had not been to SASA in many years, but we won’t be waiting that long again. It’s even better than we remembered, and we thoroughly enjoyed each dish. Oshinko, Waygu meatballs, and the SASA Fire Roll, accompanied by the delicious SASATIni. The pickles had different flavors for each veggie, the meatballs & mango salsa were heavenly, and the Fire Roll was fun and tasty. We were going to try the berry gazpacho with ice cream, but unfortunately they ran out of it! Opted for the crème brûlée trio instead, which were very good. Only reason for 4 stars on atmosphere is that our table was near both the kitchen & back door. My husband doesn’t like asking for a new table, so I should really blame him. Food Service can be a bit slow based on what is ordered, but we enjoy taking our time on date nights and our waitress was very nice. Thanks fire a great experience! It bright back memories for both of us.
