I have only dined her once, but thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the ambiance. The food was expertly prepared and presented. I had a burger that was wonderful with arugula and heirloom tomato. Also excellent choices on the wine list. Would consider a destination location for dining.

Group of friends decided to try this place out. Full bar with great selection of drinks & wine. Food menu is small. Prices for selection & size is not much of a value. Cozy seating in both dining areas. Staff was awesome!

Little Savannah At this price level I expected a little better. The ambience is shabby homestyle or if you prefer - organic and rustic. Roughly done paintings on the wall. Candle on the table. Our table consisted of two tables pulled together, leaving an uneven seam down the middle. The server was perhaps a bit too chummy and somewhat careless... More

I had heard great things about Little Savannah and was very excited to come. I hate to say I was not impressed. The service was excellent, but the food was just kind of meh... I had the shrimp and oysters, which were very plain. The oysters were HUGE, so kind of hard to swallow. The breading was nice and krispy,... More

My husband and I as part of a group of 9 people came here for dinner after an art gallery reception in the area. It was actually pretty late, but a phone call to the restaurant and they were very gracious to stay around for our late dining time. I had the Scallops dish, which was wonderful and my husband...

We made our first trip to Little Savannah Cafe on a Friday night after looking at houses for sale in the neighborhood. We had an enjoyable dinner in spite of the bustle of the Friday night crowd and both agreed we'd like to come back on a quieter weeknight. The Cherry Poppins cocktail was a treat! It was lovely with... More

I took my daughter and her two friends here for a special dinner for her 21st birthday. We were able to get an Open Table reservation with short notice which was surprisingly difficult for a nicer restaurant in Birmingham early on a Tuesday. The place is very charming in an older building in Forest Park. We had the cheese plate... More

Customers dining at Little Savannah can always expect friendly service, wonderful cocktails, a great wine selection, and incredible food made with only the freshest ingredients. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the Highland Park / Forest Park area. It is perfect for a romantic dinner or for an outing with friends or family.
