I had the best calamari I've ever had at Saga. The dessert we had was good too. The rest of the meal was average and our server was not very attentive.

My wife and I had nice Valentine's lunch at Saga. The menu has been expanded, it has something for every taste, seafood, pasta, meats, sushi, etc. We had a very nice lunch, soup, entree bottle of wine. The service was excellent. Total tab including tip was $105. Nice atmosphere.

My family and I enjoyed a great meal on December 23. There are English menus and the staff speak excellent English.The seafood was fresh and delicious, the service attentive and the decor was attractive. They have something for everyone-fish, meat, poultry, pasta. The wine list is good. Ice cream was legendary. Heartily recommend.

Especially Jesus, and older waiter that seems to hate his job and take it on his customers. He will speaks English but open each conversation in Spanish... Don't let him... More
