My family and I ate here and truly enjoyed it. First let me tell you that the place is up scale. You don't have to wear a tie but it is business casual. We went on a Friday, both parking garages were full and we searched about 30min for a parking spot, but once we got there it was well... More

We didn't make a reservation, but we recommend that you do. They were able to find us a table because we came very early. First of all, the service was absolutely mind-blowing. I hate going to restaurants because I never feel welcomed, but on that day I felt like the staff was genuinely happy to see customers. The waiter was... More

Decided on this restaurant for an anniversary date based on a prior experience during restaurant week. The service was more of the same, which means fantastic. While we came here for more of a romantic outing, my failure to book a reservation lead to us having to sit at the bar, which actually worked out as we had a pleasant... More

Dined here on a Friday night with my wife while visiting Savannah. We both had a cocktail and some wine which were very well done. I had soup and fish off of the specials menu and the wife has squab. My fish was perfectly seasoned and prepared. The wife's squab was fattier than we expected but very flavorful. Service was... More

Top 10 meals of my life. The Oysters a la Soul were....indescribably delicious, and the Scallops, well, these will forever be the ones to compare to all others, and it may take another 60 years of life to find any that even come close.

Very nice dining room. Down below st. Nice bar. Staff were great. Very attentive. My husband had the red fish and he said it was cooked to perfection. I had mussels which were also very good. A bit spicy but enjoyable. Great banana beignets over ice cream. We would return to this restaurant.

From the time you walk in the door the greeters, staff and owner strive to give you the best in dining. Let the server take you on a gastronomic journey from the alligator boudin to the lil hilbo ribeye. The owner ran our cocktails over and greeted each table in the restaurant. The food was flavorful, exotic and delicious it... More
