Bistro 45 is attached to the Marshall House in downtown Savannah and often makes the top list of places to eat. There is a good reason for tis and its the consistency and quality of the food and the excellent service. The Bistro has formal sedating in an elegant dining room as well as food at the bar.

The 45 Bistro gave us a better wedding than we ever could have imagined. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, elegant and comfortable. The food was excellent and all of our guests came up to us to let us know they loved the place and the food (especially the homemade ice cream). The staff was really wonderful, making sure we...

Tucked inside the floor level of the Marshall House is this little gem of a restaurant. Like the best things in the city, it exudes charm and understated elegance. The menu seems unimposing, mostly consisting of southern inspired dishes. Then a few items catch your eye. Escargot paired with sun dried tomatoes...tuna carpaccio, sliced so thin it melts in your...

I savored one of the best dishes I have ever tasted here, of escargot in an intense concoction involving garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. My wife had a similar experience with her grilled romaine lettuce, which she simply couldn't stop eating. Having started with such a bang, the later dishes didn't quite rise to the same level, possibly because we were... More

Upscale restaurant with great ambience, food and impeccable service. Amazing experience. The tuna carpaccio was so thinly sliced and so artfully arranged, that I could not help but wonder how its done. Most delicious I ever had.The fillet mignon was done to perfection. it was simply great. My husband had the foie gras appetizer that he orders every time he... More

We stayed in the adjacent Marshall House hotel and decided to eat here rather than wait for another late (8:45) reservation at another restaurant. The food was good (much better and lighter than the Pink House). The waiter was helpful and friendly. He warned us away from the first table we had chosen (there were three choices) as too noisy,...

We enjoyed a Valentine's dinner here with our daughter and her husband. We all escaped snow and ice and were thrilled we were able to travel to and meet in Savannah for President's weekend. It just so happened it started out on Friday, Valentine's Day this year. We had an enjoyable dinner here where everyone's dining preferences were available...vegetarian, fish... More

This great bar is one of our fallbacks when i forget to make a reservation anywhere - real good bar menu and a professional bartender who is prompt, gets your order right the first time, funny and makes good recommendations. we shared the romaine caesar salad which had a bit of a surprise in that the romaine was lightly grilled...

I ate dinner by myself while there on business in January, and returned for cocktails with friends when I returned for a vacation in March. My dinner was excellent. The service was superb. The pecan crusted salmon was incredible. The wine selection was plentiful. It is an upscale restaurant, so it is pricey, but it was worth it. When I... More
