We peered into the basement restaurant and thought we were under dressed but were beckoned in by the man in black. Our attire was fine and we sat front and center of the dining area. Not only was our waiter great but another waiter spoke with us about our selections and preferences. Appetizers and entree were great, my husband enjoyed... More

We tried to make reservations at a well known restaurant but fortunately for us we could not get in. The concierge at the Inn we were staying at recommended this restaurant and so we tried it and were extremely satisfied. The food aside from being delicious was a work of art. We have since recommended it to friends & family... More

Last week, we had a large group go to Alligator Soul. When a large group goes to dinner in Savannah, we always have a balancing act where we want good food and not spend all night dining. We pulled it off. Appetizers of oysters and calamari got us started. The food was great and the service was the best I... More

I will start by saying that I am giving this a 4 star rating simply because I am comparing this to meals I have had globally. But when it comes to Savannah this was the best meal my husband and I had. We were started with an amuse bouche that set high expectation. It was an extremely tender piece of... More

Fantastic food in a fun, vibrant atmosphere. Service is warm and friendly, extensive wine and cocktail list and exquiste desserts. This is a must-do if you're in Savannah!

We went for dinner, great service, good food and ok atomsphere. The menu is very inventive and genuine, but I think it's a bit to pricy. Great for anniversaries!

I must say this was one of my favorite eclectic dining experiences. I am a 'foodie' and I can definitely say the offered food and drink choices were pleasing to my palate. The ambiance was really nice.It is located downstairs from the street level in a repurposed grain warehouse. They had nice dinner-jazzy music playing, and the mood was festive.... More

We looked forward to going to this restaurant with a great name when visiting Savannah. It was a neat place in a basement that was nicely decorated. The food was however not even fair and the service was terrible. One of us ordered shrimp and grits - seems easy and potentially great. The very talkative waiter came back and told... More
