food is tasty and presentation is very good. The staff is friendly and willing to make recommendations if you're unsure of what you might like. The place is nicely decorated and the staff is friendly. It is an easy place to come back to.

This is a very good Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar. My wife and I have eaten there several times and always enjoyed it. It is not the best in New Jersey but well worth a visit if you are nearby. It's menu is typical of this type of restaurant. Food is very well prepared, attractive and tasty. Service is always... More

Whenever I have a new project I go searching for a place for sushi. I happen to see this place on the way back from the client to the hotel. Will this be the one? Nope! The quality of how the sushi was made was not good. I've had much better and much worse. What I really did not like... More

My husband and I went here for a sushi/hibachi lunch last year and it was excellent. Even with the restaurant being fairly busy, we got good service and great food. We each had hibachi and I got a sushi roll as well -- I forget which one but it was deep fried and that sold me! It was so delicious,... More

We've been eating at Sawa for many years (since it opened)...And while they make some of the best specialty sushi rolls in the area, over the last 2 years we've noticed the prices skyrocket and the food quality diminish. Now they've discontinued our Sawa card, which had about $80 left on it. The staff is very friendly but they can't... More

We have eaten at Sawa in Eatontown a couple of times and both times we felt like we paid too much for average food. The staff is nice, atmosphere is ok, but the food is average at best. The teriyaki chicken was on the bland side, the chicken looks like it is frozen strips of chicken that was warmed up.... More

One of the best Hibachi and Sushi places in Monmouth. The staff is always friendly and the fact that you can get reservations for Hibachi is great.

Great atmosphere, sitting around the grill, having your meal prepared in front of you. Very entertaining and attentive staff. Outstanding food. I fell in love with their oyster shots. You can make a meal out of them alone, While the rest of my party enjoyed an array of various delicious hibachi meals I settled for soup, oyster shots and fried... More
