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.

My wife and I recently dined here for the first time. Based on the strong reviews online and recommendations from friends, we were very excited to go try Little Savannah. 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

Little Savannah needs to be spoken In the same air as Highlands and Hot and Hot. Really cozy atmosphere that is great for couples and / or date night! The drinks are inventive and the food is too. I never have the same meal and it is always good. Great for business dinners also! I highly recommend as it is... More

I wanted to rate Little Savannah a little better since it aims fairly high. Atmosphere is informal bistro. The bar pours good drinks but both drinks andn wine are overpriced. We were particularly disappointed with the service, mostly due with delays from the kitchen. After providing us with a second complementary appetizer to apologize for delay in delivering our entrees,... More

Had a work celebration dinner on 1/27/15. There was a set menu with course selections and me and my wife both chose the Black Hereford Filet and baked potato. It was magnificent! Before the main course also both selected the tomato soup. It was very think, rich and tasty. The restaurant is small and quaint but we had plenty of... More

I was in town for about 10 days before and after the holidays. A friend took me here on the Saturday before Christmas. He reservations for a date. She canceled. Good for me. Too bad for her. There are not a large number of menu choices. I'd check their web site to see the likely options. Each of us ended... More

Little Savannah's is what my boyfriend and I call "our restaurant." However, we continue to tell everyone that they must come here for an exquisite dining experience. The food goes without saying, but the service is what really makes this a five star restaurant. We usually have our typical server Mitchell, who we adore, but when we do have a... More

My brother-in-law took us to Lil' Savannah after he has made acquaintance with the owner. We were led to the chef's table. The owner, his wife, and the staff made us feel welcome but I noticed they treated all patrons very warmly. The food was expertly prepared and seasonly appropriate. My duck breast with root vegetables was very good. My... More
