I really liked my experience at Sergio's Sarava. I had never eaten at a Brazillian restaurant before, but this experience made me want to go back. I had the lobster melt, which I had no idea there was such a thing, and my mouth was...More

This is a huge restaurant. Great for big parties. The menu was inventive with lots of small plates and interesting flavor combinations. We enjoyed ourselves and the service was attentive, music not too loud.

A group of friends went to sit on the patio, eat, drink, and experience the appealing music of Brazilian Samba (but not necessarily in that order.) Food is expensive but unique, fresh, and filled with unusual tasty ingredients. The appetizers help lead one into the...More

Sergio Abramof's repertoire includes nearly 30 years as an expert chef and restaurant owner. A native of Brazil, he moved to the U.S. at the age of 10 and eventually settled in Cleveland. Sarava evokes the rhythm and flavors of Brazil in many ways: through its outstanding Street Plates, authentic drinks, and delectable dishes. We are located in the heart of vibrant Shaker Square, and offer multiple dining and lounge options for our guests. An extensive 24-seat bar adjoins an intimate dining area. There is a cozy fireplace lounge with additional booth seating, and our private Rio Room. Brazil, like the United States, is a melting pot, teeming with the unique cultures and flavors of Africa, Europe, and Asia. Come experience Brazil's rich cultural heritage with us at Sarava where samba is at the heart of everything we do. Visit our sister restaurant, Sergio's in University Circle, and get a taste of Italian, seafood, and cross-cultural cuisine.
