From the escargots to the profiteroles you won't be disappointed with the fine French food here!! All served in a delightful French bistro atmosphere complete with the long aprons seen on French waiters! Upscale/casual White tablecloth dining. My favorite restaurant in Savannah! Don't miss this one!!

Very comfortable and well appointed dining room with a bar on the other side. Great wine list. The food was cooked to perfection. The best mussels I've ever eaten, which I had for an appetizer. I had the rack of lamb special for my entree. The lamb melted in my mouth. We ordered several salads and sides of which we... More

This little French gastro pub takes you to Paris for the time you are enjoying your meal. You almost leave speaking French. I started with possibly the best appetizers I have had. Foies gras en Torchon served over brioche toast and a delicious bing cherry sauce. Chef was extremely generous with his sliced portions (2 rounds). It was moist, creamy,... More

A quick Trip Advisor search yielded an onslaught of eateries in Savannah. Circa 1875, sat very high on the list and sparked my interest as a potential anniversary dinner spot during my wife and I's stay in Savannah. We were not disappointed. The dimly-lit, romantic atmosphere was sophisticated, with various French art, flags, and the like across the wall. I... More

I had the soup of the day and was impressed with the combination of flavours. My main I opted for another starter - the Coquill St Jacques which was more than enough for... More

Wow! Dinner here was amazing! My husband and I shared escargot, foies gras en torchon, foies de poulet, coquilles St. Jacque and the assiette fromage. Truely an amazing dinner. The service was great too. Highly recommend!
