Service is always excellent. Food is always very good. My husband really enjoys their Flatbreads. We always buy a quart of Chicken Lemon Rice soup to go; it's delicious! We've been here many times, sometime with family 3-5 of us. We've always enjoyed ourselves. We make reservations through OpenTable. This was the first time they encountered someone using an OpenTable Reward. Manager called OpenTable to check; it was a very easy, smooth transaction. Also, easy parking.

z i Think you should extend the discount for drinks to the dinner group as well as the bar group. during happy hour
It would be more fair as it is in most other restaurants now days. And you might get some extra income as a result. Doesn't seem right to only offer the discount to bar patrons,

Everyone of us (10) thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The polite and capable waiter anticipated everything, e.g. he asked if we wanted him to cut the birthday cake and put the pieces on plates with vanilla ice cream.

The only negative thing was my entrée. It was supposed to be lobster fetucinni. 2 days later and I'm still looking for the lobster.

I come in at least every other week. I have my preferences from the menu, but all of the items I have ordered have been great.

The wait staff is professional and friendly.

The interior is attractive. The background music is pleasant. The noise-level is pretty low.

Just don't expect lobster.
Sajo's is a very nice dining experience - quiet, nice atmosphere, good food, good selection and excellent service. However, they seem to have a problem with lobster. They've been advertising Lobster Tuesdays, with twin lobster tails and steak & lobster for $21 each. We went there last night (along with most of the tables around us) for the lobster specials and were told, at 6:00, that they sold out of lobster at lunch. Really? Is this a ploy to get people in the door to order the regular-priced meals? On the other hand, our waitress did give us a coupon for a free future appetizer as compensation.

As I said, they usually have very good food. Some of our favorites are the Salmon Basilico, Chicken Melanzana, Tuscan Veal, and Shrimp Katherine (a daily special). Avoid the Lobster Fettuccine though. My wife ordered it a couple of weeks ago and there were 4 tiny morsels of lobster, about the size of small dice. She complained to the manager and he brought a small saucer of lobster bits to add to her pasta. Last night the lady at the next table ordered it and couldn't find any lobster at all. A different manager gave her a hard time and finally offered to let her order a different entrée. At this point she declined and he took the price of her meal off of their bill.
Otherwise, Sajo's is very good.

When my family takes out my parents for a meal, we tend to dine together in the same places over and over. We wanted someplace different and special for my parents' anniversary celebration and were not disappointed when trying Sajo's. As a matter of fact, my parents were so enamored with Sajo's they immediately planned on returning.
One great things about Sajo's is their menu. There was something for everyone. Our table ordered a salad meal, burger, sandwich, and two entrees. Another great thing about Sajo's is that you get a full dining experience - even at lunchtime. The waitstaff and manager wished my parents a happy anniversary (because we mentioned it on our Open Table reservation) and they made sure we were happy with our meal. There was a dessert offered to my parents for their anniversary too. Thank you for making their day special.

Our party fo 4 cannot tell you enough about how great our visit was!!!!!!Man, the bourbon salmon-if I could've eaten it all I would have and everything else we ordered was done exactly as we asked for. Service was excellent (and fun)-honestly I cannot remember the last time we were this satisfied!!!! Prices were fair, Service great, atmosphere very nice. Thank you Sajos , we will be back!!!!!! PS., we were there because of a concert we attended at freedom hill.

This is our second time at Sojo's. Both times have been for anniversary dinners. Both times the service has been outstanding. It is obvious that everything is cooked fresh with great ingredients. I will continue to go here. While we never felt rushed, the entire meal was served and completed in just over an hour.

Simply amazing! I was looking for a last minute restaurant for Father's Day reservations on Tuesday- my party kept growing and we eventually ended up at 9 adults, 4 children and 2 infants. Open Table showed only Sajo's with available slots for the time I needed for as many people. I had never heard of them, and they were centrally located to all the people in my party so we decided to give it a shot.

Wow, so glad we did. Everyone in the party complimented me on the quality of the food. The food was AMAZING. I had lobster escargot (a play on escargot with lobster meat instead of the traditional fare) and veal marsala. They were simply delicious.

The service was amazing - even though we had a huge party the service was attentive, our food was all delivered within a few minutes of each other and we wanted for nothing. The manager Steve even stopped by our table to see how we were doing and asked us if there was anything more than could be done to assist in us having a wonderful time.

Based on my experience I would recommend Sajo's - great place!

Thank you Sajo's, Steve and all the staff for such a magnificent Father's Day family get together

Overbooked for Mothers Day, Not all food kept filled, watched buffet tops/lids fall on the floor and not wiped, washed, or taken away. Became ill later in in the evening and through the night. Felt the Buffet should of been at least $5 less per person. Don't recommend for a special event but for other is good.

These people really care. This has been our favorite restaurant for man-years. Food and service are consistently excellent even at holidays when they are stressed to their limits. Recently we had our first disappointment in the many years we have been customers. The staff made immediate attempts to make corrections and the owner followed up with us to make things right. But don't tell anybody or we won't be able to get reservations in the future.

We came to Sajo's to celebrate what would have been my Mom's 50th Birthday. It was her and her husband's favorite restaurant with their favorite server, Jeffery. We had the pleasure of having Jeffery serve us during our celebration! Service was great as always! Jeffery even spoke a few kind words about my Mom to our family about how she had personally touched his life over the years. Food was delicious as well! Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our mid afternoon dinner. Jeffery went above and beyond with exceptional service. I do have to mention that it was very quiet for us; We unfortunately, were able to over hear associates at the bar discussing a shortage to a drawer with language I would NOT consider suitable for us to hear or family friendly.

First off our reservation was for 6:30 on Valentine's Day. We were seated very quickly and the best booth in the middle. Our server was Beth with her amazing smile and friendly personality won us over. She spoke higher of the restaurant and encouraged us to come back again another time. Food and drinks came out fast and the food was amazing! We both loved the food however we had to take some home for lunch the next day. The large portions were well worth the $59.99 special. I liked the presentation and the purple lights outside on the trees too. We were told to come here by his dad who enjoyed the wonderful food and his experiences before. He really knows the best place to have a romantic evening so we thanked him for his idea.
