I’ve long been a fan of Sava’s. I like how the food is always interesting, well prepared and attractively presented and I like the ambiance and décor. What’s gone off recently though is the service. On my last two visits it’s been slow and surly....More

Sava's is like an oasis from the chaos of State St. Its mid-century modern charm is quite lovely. I've eaten here twice and had mixed results. The first time, I had the turkey burger and fries. These were good, although not amazing. The flavors on...More

At most Ann Arbor places the outside seating is roadside...with exhaust fumes ruining the night out. Not so at Sava's. But there's more...great drink options...superior food..exceptional service...a great night out!

If you are looking for unusual but good food, this is the place to go. The service is attentive, the place it spotlessly clean, and the food is excellent. Try for lunch or dinner, both are great.

They have vegan options. . . not so sure about gluten free. I asked for gluten free bread and they had none. They do juicing before 3pm. That would be gluten free. . .and vegan.

Just call them. My guess is most restaurants with outside dining in A2 will allow dogs in their patio areas. I do not think there are any indoor pet friendly restaurants. Savas does have outside dining.
