We went to Circa 1875 a few years ago on New Years Eve and were disappointed with our meal and the service. Knowing that you can't really judge a place based on a very busy night,we returned to see if we could improve on that night. We actually ate at the bar and the food, service, and ambience couldn't have... More

Our Pedicab dropped us off in front of an inauspicious storefront pub but we walked into a small fascinating French Bistro, white table cloths, French flags, high ceilings and welcoming service. Escargot were plump and well prepared. We hadn't seen frog legs on a menu in years so we added it to our order. As good as we can remember.... More

We stopped into what looked to be a pub for a drink. The surprise suddenly hit as we realized this was an upscale French restaurant. They refer to it as a GastroPub, but I think that severely underrates it,

I love this place! This is an unabashed French style cafe in Savannah, GA. The menu is loaded with great choices. In our party we tried the Caesar salad and Beet salad to start. Both were excellent. For entrées we had mussels (wonderful), lamb shank (the best I have had since Ireland - tender, moist, tasty), wild boar (excellent), and... More

We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The atmosphere was quaint and comfortable. We arrived 25 min before our reservation, but were promptly seated. Our waitress was incredible. The wine list was superior and so was the food. We ate our hearts out and enjoyed all of it. Highly recommend the escargot, beef tartare, veil chops, and... More

We have had the opportunity to travel around the country and to other countries, but live in the Savannah area. There are many great restaurants in Savannah alone, but this one is one of my 'go to' restaurants when dining out. It's difficult to get an entrée because we enjoy the appetizers so much, but we usually share an entrée... More
