Sav’s is closing its doors August 27. We ask for patience as we struggle to handle the overwhelming love of patrons dining in. We have to stop the DoorDash, GrubHub and Toast ordering options, but will try to handle call in/walk in To Go orders.

Menu prices subject to change according to cost of ingredients without notice.



Some items on the menu will not be available in this 

last month of Sav's Restaurant.

Prices adjusted according to costs, without notice.

Portrait of Sav.jpg


Sav grew up in Guinea, located on the west coast of Africa, and gleaned his cooking skills from his talented mother and sisters. Sav met his wife, Rachel, when she was serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guinea. They moved to Lexington, Kentucky, Rachel's home prior to Peace Corps life, and started their family.

Everything about this place is fantastic. This locally owned west African eatery is fast, clean, charming, and friendly. The dishes are so flavorful and filling. There was not anything that was not 5 stars. And definitely treat yourself to ice cream at the end.

Sav's is awesome. Everyone in our house is vegetarian and we are all able to order something different. Really appreciate the big selection. The icecream is a must, too! Sav makes it himself!

So good! Very flavorful and different from most restaurants in the city. And the ice cream is as good as everyone says it is.
