I'm in the area on an unexpected visit while my daughter is in Cima hospital next door. My local friend took me here for dinner last night and it was delicious. Patrons and Setting are sophisticated and lovely. I enjoyed a needed cocktail and delicious sushi. Menu is full of options. I felt miles away from the hospital environment.

I've eaten here twice and the food was good both times. They do a great job serving selected international dishes, including Thai and Italian. A lot of restaurants do not do this well, but Saga does. I don't know who the chef is, but from his food, it is evident that he is well trained.

We live in Escazu and always return to Saga. The food is consistant and the service excellent. the deserts are among the best in the country. The fresh salmon is the best you can find.

We had during the meal a sauvignon Blanco - half bottle - which costs 6910 costa rica. The sopa was 4662. The salad florentina was 6016 . The service was very attentive. The meal presentation was excellent . Unfortunately the beef tenderloin was uncooked and very tough.

While staying In san Jose had dinner at Saga: do not waste your money on their salads - very mediocre, small portion, too much dressing and very over priced pasta with seafood very mediocre and expensive Sushi and tune sesame were good, atmosphere is upscale and pleasant, but would not recommend to friends

The sushi we ordered was very good. Location is very good as it is across the street from the Escazu residence inn.

The food is what I would call "industrial" gourmet - looks good on the menu but when it arrives on your plate it lacks the care and delicacy of true gourmet. Service was decent but the timing was all wrong with several guests.
