Description: Saga is a modern, international food restaurant where clients can not only delight themselves with exquisite dishes, but also enjoy the tropical view like atmosphere combined with its modern architecture. In Saga, there is a prevalence of modernism in both its food and design while contrasting with the tropical ambiance of the landscape. In Saga, international food is transformed with the blending of tastes from different parts of the world. The experience is only enhanced by its already renowned gourmet bakery.

This is my favorite restaurant! The price is good and the food is amazing! Every single thing i've ordered has been delicious! I go at least twice a month! The pecan cannoli is a MUST

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I recently returned from a week in Costa Rica. This restaurant had the best service of any place I dined. The food was good--not memorable. The wines are overpriced...Catena Malbec at $40 versus $11 retail/$30 restaurant in the US.

“Spectacular in all aspects.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is simply the BEST. From the entry, and ambiance, the staff's attentive service to the wine and food, it is superlative. A bit difficult to get to, the effort is well rewarded. Exploring the extensive menu will take several visits, but leave you with happy memories of the evenings.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Great soup and sandwich options, good burgers..excellent desserts. Family type, a little bit too loud ambience, not the quiet, low light restaurant but quick service.

“Trendy but horrible food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Just came from here, after reading reviews thought it would be good for lunch. Seabass is previously frozen, the coconut rissota was flavorless and amature. Has management even actually tasted the meals they are trying to recreate? The levels of flavor and notes expected are non existent. Walk the block to Product C if your looking for quality seafood and not a "see me on the avenue" 80s style restraunt. Plainly put, just horrible!
