Description: One of the city's most consistently stylish restaurants evokes a low-key, counterculture bistro, but its cuisine is grander and more cutting-edge than its industrial-looking decor and its level of hipness would imply. Wrapped in warm brick and cool steel, the Sapphire Grill has steeped itself in a history of fine culinary tradition. Christopher Nason is the owner and the most talked about chef of the moment in Savannah, preparing what he defines as a "coastal cuisine" based on seafood hauled in on the day of its preparation from nearby waters. From seasonal chanterelles and oregon black truffles, to the most tender cuts of meat and delicate seafood, Chef Nason and his team work feverishly to keep Sapphire at the mark expected of her.

“Always Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

As residents of Savannah, the Sapphire Grill has been our "go to" spot for special occasions like anniversary, birthday, etc.
While very pricey, we have never been disappointed.
A gourmet menu with fresh ingredients in a charming atmosphere and always served with aplomb.
It is a little tricky in a tourist town (where restaurants come and go) to find an establishment that offers consistency and high standards.
The Sapphire Grill is one such precious gem - (sorry about that!)
A truly excellent spot.

“very high standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

A serious dining establishment. Great servicem inspired menu. They have a fois gras appetizer --cooked perfectly. What more can I say? Wine list is complete. Wines glasses are even well selected. Interesting space with small dining areas. Food very well done all around.I'd say in the top 3 of Savannah.

“Great Find in Savannah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Dining room is on the small side--but both food and service are fantastic. The generous serving of Calamari was perfectly prepared and seasoned with citrus---one of the best dishes ever. The Black Grouper was perfectly prepared and seasoned. Then desserts--WOW--needless to say we will be back!
