Description: One of the city's most consistently stylish restaurants evokes a low-key, counterculture bistro, but its cuisine is grander and more cutting-edge than its industrial-looking decor and its level of hipness would imply. Wrapped in warm brick and cool steel, the Sapphire Grill has steeped itself in a history of fine culinary tradition. Christopher Nason is the owner and the most talked about chef of the moment in Savannah, preparing what he defines as a "coastal cuisine" based on seafood hauled in on the day of its preparation from nearby waters. From seasonal chanterelles and oregon black truffles, to the most tender cuts of meat and delicate seafood, Chef Nason and his team work feverishly to keep Sapphire at the mark expected of her.

The veal strip loin & oxtail dish was outstanding as was the tuna for my wife. My son's steak was cooked perfectly. Service was spot on. Calamari was perfect as was the entire evening.

We walked in and ate at the bar last Thursday night. The service was friendly and attentive and informative, the food was superb. The chicken with arugula and spinach was one of the best meals I have ever had - and I never order chicken hen dining out. Also very impressed with the bartender's service and mixology skills!

Followed the trip advisor reviews as well as our concierge notes. We had one of the best meals here, grouper and crab cakes, plus the painted plate salad. The interior is very attractive and we good service throughout the meal. Trust us, this is a great place to eat.

We stopped in last minute at the Sapphire grill mid week,after hastily booking a reservation for 2 due to some confusion on our end about the evening's reservation plans. We popped in around 7pm expecting not to be seated until 7:45, and we were seated earlier than expected around 7:20. They were fairly busy and still managed that early seating.... More

The Sapphire Grill is a nice restaurant with an odd feel to it. We had reservations and were promptly seated when we arrived. We rode the elevator to the third floor and was told by the hostess that the restrooms were on the second floor where the kitchen was located. A bit odd, but okay maybe that's the quirky, artsy...

Our large party (20+) took over the 3rd floor of Sapphire Grill tonight and had a fabulous time. Each dish was perfectly prepared and presented. Great wine list. Highly recommended for a special dining experience.

This was the greatest food I have EVER had in my life! My husband and I eat our way across the world by dining in the recommended places wherever we go. I cross referenced this restaurant among three sites and hit the jackpot. We ordered the Chefs special so, as the waiter put it, "the chef can show off a... More

Did a last minute search as we were coming into town. This restaurant was suggested by staff at the inn. Called for reservation and 1 hour later we walked to Congress St. Very friendly greeting as we entered this small restaurant. Server was pleasant and attentive and answered questions about the restaurant at the end of our meal. We were... More

Not having a reservation in Savannah on a Fri night is not a good idea. We were on the verge of eating at Moe's when we decided to try Sapphire Grill, across the street. Though there were empty tables we were welcomed at the bar. Had drinks and after seeing the menu decided to stay and eat. My salad with... More
