    Restaurant had an event going on during lunch so we couldn’t have a real conversation at our table without telling. This was supposed to be a business lunch meeting

    Food was good but service was lacking - servers were all over the place and I felt bad for those hustling to wait on tables as restaurant was not staffed properly Servers had to be flagged down Food was decent Seems like there is lack of management which is too bad because it’s a good location with good food

    Didn’t have a server come over for a good 15+ minutes, tried to wave someone down for awhile before we were finally noticed. Drinks took forever but food was decently fast at least.

    Sahara was a great place for pre-Sweet 16 games - they handled that crowd along with an event at the Theater nearby with their hustling wait staff and servers. The variety of the food was great, and each dish was delicious. We appreciated the honesty of that it would take a little bit of time to get out food due to the busy-ness of the night (although it was still pretty quick for our party of 8) - that forewarning allowed us to relax and enjoy our time there.

    It’s very obvious that they are understaffed. The wait times to receive drinks and food was definitely long. The table behind us left, after they werent acknowledged by any wait staff after waiting at least 15+ minutes. Would try them again once staffing issues were squared away. Food was decent.

    The food was delicious however it was very obvious that they were extremely understaffed. Our waitress appeared to be the bartender and waiting tables. It took 45 mins for our food to arrive, the food we ordered should not have taken that amount of time. The drinks were also terrible, I ordered a margarita like drink and it was just sour mix for $17. If they fix their staffing issues it would be a great spot.

    Try somewhere else, at least on a weekend. We waited at least half an hour for someone to take our order; our cocktails clearly sat before we got them (+ the rosemary syrup in the gimlet was undetectable); and since our meal was only 2 sandwiches and some Brussels sprouts, the wait for it felt disproportionately long. The food *was,* in fairness, delicious! But they need more kitchen staff, waitstaff, or both to prevent other diners from feeling invisible or forgotten the way we did. Apologies for the delay *before* our meal or check came would have helped more than those we got with the bill.
