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.

We enjoyed our meal and the service, but it was so over the top expensive for just an entree each and one glass of wine. It was over $100….no appetizer, no dessert….just one entree each and a shared glass of wine.

Relaxed, Comfortable & Friendly all describe Sapphire Grill. Excellent menu that is very well executed. My wife had seared Tuna & Rice Grits & I the best swordfish ever! What a great evening!

This restaurant is located on Congress street, near Paula Dean's. Recommended by our concierge. We were greeted and seated in the upstairs dining room. What a surprise! The lack of windows was more than compensated by the space between tables. You could hear no other conversation and could dine in a civilized manner. A table of eight was the next... More

The Saphire Grill offers elegant, exquisite dining in a very friedly atmosphere. I was impressed by the suprise element in every dish, the bread included a mix of spices and herbs unexpected for a bread, yet very tasty. The same applied to the fish, a successful mix of local and asian flavours. I was expecting a pricey wine list and... More

A great dinner spot! It’s difficult to find healthier options in the south, so we were impressed with the menu option to choose your food (steak, shrimp, chicken) and have it cooked with your choice of sauce and preparation. My husband and I both enjoyed grilled shrimp and with sauces on the side. I also ordered a delicious cauliflower mash... More

We had a chance to dine there and glad we did. My wife had the duck and I chose the veal strip. Both were great. Only giving 4 stars since we had to wait longer than expected to get our table. But we'll be returning for sure!

We went on recommendation of my cousin who lives in the area. Easy walk from just about anywhere in the historic district. The duck was utterly fantastic. Crispy carmelized bits on very lean meat. Not too gamey, not the least bit greasy. Highly recommend. My husband had local grouper that was encrusted with black sesame seeds. Very tasty. Service was... More

Very pricey for the amount of food. The chicken entree was rather bland. My wife had the grouper entree which was fair.

We came in late for drinks and dessert, something we have done successfully here several times in the past. We were seated promptly and had nice drinks but we were disappointed with a fruit and cheese plate we ordered. The fruit was fine, but the cheese seemed like some really ordinary rectangular slices of grocery store quality smoked cheddar and... More
