I was very pleasantly surprised by the creative entrées, salads, main courses and sandwich options on the menu. I had Snook crusted with Macedonia nuts and it was wonderful. My wife had a three fish (Snook, tuna and salmon) dinner. The vegetables were very good and prepared perfectly. It was quiet enough in the back room for a hard of... More

This place is nice and trendy and has many options for food selections. I had the Spicy Tuna roll that I highly reccommend. Very tasty. Nice place for conversation or business relations. Set in a trendy part of town.

Very busy in the night. Coming after 8.00 pm we had to wait 15 min to get the table. Interesting menu, although not all was faultless. Very attractive list of wines and professional waiter. The place for a dinner with friends, as the décor is unique and venue is very cosy.

Saga is one of the rare restaurants one can have a conversation with others at your table. For some reason the ambient sound is not present. The decor is not spectacular but the variety of food offered is very good. Try the desert menu for a real treat ! The owner Simon M and his creative wife are client focused... More

I stopped at the Saga bakery with a friend who swore it was the best bakery she's been to ever - and she's from Paris! While speaking in French with her, a man came behind the counter and began to speak with us in French. He's the owner and explained that his wife studied pastry-making in Paris and Boston. He...

I have eaten at this restaurant about 5 or 6 times. Service has been consistently good. Food also has been good and consistent. Good place for a business lunch or diner out. Decor is simple and pleasing. Good wine selection.

Very creative not only in plate presentation but also in originally spicing well known dishes. Great wine list and excellent service. Platillos creativos no solo en presentación pero en mejorar recetas originales conocidas! Excelente carta de vinos y muy buen servicio!

This place have quite minimalistic interior with very eclectic menu-it's advantage is that if you come with the group, most people will be able to choose something they like even if you disagreed on food preferences - menu runs from sushi to beef, fish and meet specialities without mentioning specific cuisine. I chose onion soup and sesame crusted tuna. Although... More
