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.

Nice restaurant with very good dishes, especially the starters were excellent. We shared calamaris and crab cakes, and I can recommend both. I would recommend a table reservation, especially on weekends as the place is very popular.

I've been here several times, and each time the experience is wonderful! My last visit was with my husband on a quiet Sunday Night. Our server Meredith was great and provided us with some good food options. The Sapphire menu changes slightly with the seasons, which gives returning diners different options each time. My husband started of with the crab... More

I really enjoyed this restaurant. I am a vegan so it takes a special restaurant to make something exceptional that isn't on the menu. The rest of my party had wonderful food as well. The bartenders are great and make really good drinks. Overall, delicious and very accommodating. Its also in a nice part of downtown which always helps

Excellent food & service, despite showing up right before closing. Fabulous salad & crab cakes. Lots of small lates, drink options & interesting menu choices. Been several times and never disappointed.

I've been to the Sapphire many times for business and pleasure. If you're looking for a tourist trap, go elsewhere. If you're looking for a great dining experience, head to the Sapphire. Great atmosphere, great service and great food with a local twist.

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.
