Love the ambience! Found the bartender to be very pleasant and attentive to this solo diner. Think his name was Jonathan.

My husband and I had a date night and decided to try Chive. We had to wait. It was busy and hopping with all sorts of people. The food was good. We recommend the she-crab soup and the mango salad...very good. The Ping that we had though flavorful, was bit overdone and chewy. Our entrees flounder stuffed with crab and buffalo/bison with veggies were really good. The dessert-tuxedo bomb...WOW! Our waitress was very helpful and cordial. We enjoyed it and would visit again.

We ordered small plates: oceans 5 with tender and flavorful mussels, clams, scallops, and shrimp with asian noodles and a complex thai broth We also had Striped Sea Bass, Baby bok choy, herbed orzo, lemon capers with mixed greens. Simply, devine! Lastly, we devoured the grilled Lobster & Edamame creamy Risotto. The Lobster was so fresh, tender, and succulent.

A restauraunt can have wonderful food but it means nothing without service excellence. Devon made this a special occasion. Attentive without being intrusive. Wonderful personality and well versed in the restauraunt's wine and food. Just go and ask for Devon!

My husband and I had a great time. The food was absolutely delicious. Our service was above board and that just might be an understatement. When we come back into chive, we will request Jasmine again. She not only recomended great food, but also another restraunt called Fire. We did not have time to check out fire, but maybe on our next trip down to Savannah. If you want a romantic date with your loved one, then do not hesitate to stop by Chive.

Beautiful interior although in some ways they forsake comfort for style. Bar can be busy later in the evening and makes for a crowded, noisy entrance. At the bar order The Bee's Knees--incredible drink. Devon was an outstanding server. She was attentive, informative, and conversational. She explained the menu & made us feel very comfortable. Food was great and slanted toward seafood. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and it was cooked perfectly. We will definitely be back.
