it was out first time here, and everything was fantastic. the service was great - not rushed - the food superb, and the atmosphere relaxed. Well worth trying if you are in Savannah.

Really cute place, very historical. Met a friend for a drink and dinner. The waitress we had needs an attitude adjustment. Was very pushy, poor service and rude to other customers. Food was excellent and nicely prepared but too expensive in my opinion.

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. The food is fabulous, the staff is attentive and polite, and the restaurant's atmosphere is great. It's also in a perfect location, right in the heart of the downtown area. Can't wait to come back again and again.

Great French food without the snobbery! And I love french food! Wonderful offerings on the menu and the best wine-by-the-glass selection around! We ate the frog leg app, trout entree for me, bouillabaisse (special) for spouse. Shared a side of terrific brussel sprouts, yes, terrific brussel sprouts. Delicious bread! How about real Rose' Champagne for $10 BTG?! I could just... More

We went there last night and had a wonderful evening. The frog's legs and escargot are authentic. I had the sea bass which was lovely and the deserts were heavenly! One thing, another customer slumped in his chair and they had to call 911. It was very scary but the staff handled it perfectly.

My Parents came to visit Me and my Wife a few weeks ago, having loved Savannah SO much, then came back for the second time in a month, bringing along my brothers who also had never been there.

A fabulous restaurant for atmosphere,service and ambiance. The best restaurant we visited in Savannah. Our waiter was attentive and all the courses we had delicious. I had the trout with almonds yum yum and escargot as a starter. My husband had steak and it had great flavour and cooked to perfection. Make sure you book it was busy.

Walking into Circa 1875 brought back fond memories of Paris. So Parisian, we decided to order their cheese and pate platter with champagne; head cheese, ham, salami, blue cheese, olives, a soft cheese and great crusty bread. One of the best pates I have ever had. We will return to sample their dinner menu.

The best of so many expectations met here tonight. The restaurant itself is French, funky, quaint, bistro, cabaret all rolled into one. You aren't one amongst many here. I don't know the precise table count, but small enough that you feel special. The wait staff are well seasoned - no T&A going on here to sell food - simply good... More
