I saw the glowing reviews, so I thought I'd try Circa 1875 for dinner. Wow! A great dinner. Caesar was just like it should be - lots of garlic and mild (real) anchovies. The sea bass with a light sauce was perfect. Decadent desert as well. Service was quick abn impeccable without being 'stuffy'.A wonderful dining experience. If you are... More

Lovely atmosphere, interesting surroundings. Very good, attentive service. There is a long wine list, with many available by the glass. The menu is completely French, with interesting choices ( and we are used to eating in France). Our meal was delicious, the steak and duck breast cooked to perfection. Tasty warm bread brought to the table whilst we awaited our... More

My girlfriend and I were visiting Savannah and she pointed out this place (she had lived there in the past and was familiar with it). We had the escargots and salmon tartare hors d'oeuvres and they were both simply fantastic. James the bartender was friendly, funny, and helpful. I still can't remember the name of the drink that he made... More

I love all things French & chose this one for my first night in Savannah. The food & service did not disappoint. Excellent! Best escargot I have ever had. My only wish would have been for better ambiance. It is located in a store front.

So glad I chose this restaurant. It is French but, not fancy or fussy. Large menu and wine list. My daughter said her lobster bisque was the best she ever had and my trout franchise was the best I ever had. My son-in-law's duck confit unfortunately, had very salty lentils. That is the reason for 4 stars not 5. Not... More

We made reservations but arrived early and had a few drinks at the bar. We sat downstairs in the basement and the setting was incredibly romantic. The service was fantastic, the waiter was able to advise us with ordering as neither of us are familiar with traditional French cuisine. We particularly enjoyed our cheese board appetizer. We will definitely be... More
