Well there was a lot going on at Sawa when we arrived! There were Grand Marnier ladies testing out new drinks in the lobby next to the bar, a lot of people waiting for seating in the Hibachi area as it seemed like everyone had reservations. So we used our time waiting for a table trying out new drinks with... More

My husband loves sushi, I do not eat seafood of any kind. I was pleased to learn that the restaurant serves a variety of cuisines. My husband is very fussy about his seafood, and he loved the sushi. I enjoyed my marinated steak as well. Thank you!

The sushi here is pretty good, and its a cool laid-back atmosphere right off the beach. They even have karaoke sometimes, and its super entertaining.

The food here was very good. Sat outside which was great for people watching. Service started a little slow and then our waiter totally redeemed himself.

We came here for my brothers birthday and this was the worst experience ever. They split our party up into 2 and they then did not give us food at all. They gave the food to the others that are not part of our party. Then they argued with us when we told them you did not give us food.... More

We went for lunch and my husband had the hibachi filet mignon and I the scallops, Both were Cooked to perfection. My little ones enjoyed their shrimp hibachi as well. We also ordered yellowtail sashimi and squid sashimi both were super fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back when we return to long branch

went here last minute for July 4th/anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was nice close to the beach and the action at Pier Village. The service was great too. Unfortunately the food was not that tasty. All of the dishes that we had which included a bento box, steak dinner and sushi were just ok. They lacked flavor and the freshness I... More

This restaurant has sushi and hibachi. We ate in the Hibachi area which has about 8 hibachi tables that hold about 10 people each. The menu has chicken, steak, seafood & you can order a combo of either items. They cook on the tables in front of you and do a show with their knives and utensils which is fun.... More

This place is definitely one of pier villages best restaurants and the atmosphere is very relaxing and lounge like. The sushi selection is incredible with such creative twist and and fresh taste to them all. Come back here every summer and wouldn't have it any other way to have such great sushi.
