We made our first trip to Little Savannah Cafe on a Friday night after looking at houses for sale in the neighborhood. We had an enjoyable dinner in spite of the bustle of the Friday night crowd and both agreed we'd like to come back on a quieter weeknight. The Cherry Poppins cocktail was a treat! It was lovely with... More

I took my daughter and her two friends here for a special dinner for her 21st birthday. We were able to get an Open Table reservation with short notice which was surprisingly difficult for a nicer restaurant in Birmingham early on a Tuesday. The place is very charming in an older building in Forest Park. We had the cheese plate... More

Customers dining at Little Savannah can always expect friendly service, wonderful cocktails, a great wine selection, and incredible food made with only the freshest ingredients. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the Highland Park / Forest Park area. It is perfect for a romantic dinner or for an outing with friends or family.

Loved the Grouper appetizer and local cheese plate. Lots of great farm to table options and everyone was very well informed. Great Key Pie too!

Fresh, locally sourced food, with great service. The menu isn't big, what's on it is prepared perfectly. The owners, Clif and Maureen, are very friendly and you'll most likely meet them.

We like to try a variety of dishes when going to a place for the the first time. So, we ordered two appetizers to share (Shrimp and Grits and Kale... More

We had dinner here for the 1st time just a few nights ago. Everything from the ambiance, the food, and the staff was top notch. We had a large party for a birthday (including two extras at the last minute) and the staff was easy to work and very accommodating. The menu is probably more limited than most places, but... More
