If you have a chance to try Saia, give it a chance. You may be pleasantly surprised. Ok I checked all the previous reviews. 80% accurate. Atmosphere, oceanside FLL,.. Nice Sonesta Hotel, soft lighting. All perfect for a romantic dinner night out, close to home. With Groupon, even better. Our Server was pleasant and prompt, and smiled ! I studied... More

I happened upon Saia during the dinner hour when prices were less and the crowd light. Alex was working the bar and was an excellent mixologist and when he had time we talked a bit about the local area. The sushi was really well done. For the price I paid I was really satisfied. Would go again in a heartbeat... More

The food here is fantastic but the service sucks (very, very slow). If you can get over the service, you will really enjoy. All of the sushi was really, really good. We also really enjoyed the shrimp tempura and the edamame. We took advantage of the groupon offer which was an amazing value. Make a reservation - we made one... More

Thank you for your review. Over the past year we have experienced an increase in business so we do tend to go on waits from time to time. We do suggest making reservations to ensure seating. As for your experience with the service portion of your visit I assure you this is not the standard of service we hold ourselves... More

It was extremely dark and had more of a bar/lounge feel than a restaurant and although I not into the whole dining in the dark thing, I would love it as a chill spot for drinks. With that feeling in mind, I ordered a Scorpion Bowl, that is clearly intended for two people, but really what difference does that make... More

Good and service were very good. We arrived in early evening so we got to enjoy ocean view before it turned dark. Restaurant is in B Ocean hotel so it's not overly crowded.

I was really surprised, loved this restaurant in the hotel we were staying at. The sushi and small plates/salads were great and the Pomegranate Duck was fantastic. They really seem to have gone to some length to have a creative cook and excellent service in this hotel.

This is the restaurant of the B ocean. The food is nothing special at all. We were disappoint about the portions that were too small for the price. Anyway, maybe not a bad thing that i did no eat to much because I got sick right after the dinner. (I ate chicken).

We were new to the sushi restaurant experience, but have always enjoyed the small plate experience which allows us to try a variety of foods. Our waiter was excellent in providing recommendations. The lamb lollipops were outstanding as well as the scallops. The quality of all the food was excellent. We ordered items one at a time which created a... More
