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.

The service was very attentive and we like the format: a select choise of fine meats or seafood witha selection of different sauces. When we were uncertain of which sauces would best compliment our chosen fish or scallops, the waiter was very helpful. The buns offered while we waited for the rest of the meal were probably the best we've ever had in a restaurant (and we've traveled extensively). i should have asked for more. The air was a bit too cool for me and the light too blue (but then, this WAS the Sapphire Grill) but the warm service more than made up for it.

From start to finish, our meal was exceptional. To start, there was warm bread to dip in individual plates of olive oil seasoned with freshly ground parmesan and pepper. The entree's were wonderful and could be simply grilled and accompanied with delicious sauces. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. Lovely drinks and wines, too.

Loved the ambiance at The Sapphire Grill! Had the Sapphire Grill Caesar salad which was a deconstructed Caesar and absolutely delicious. The Bouillabaisse was teeming with seafood and accompanied by toast with lemon cream. The dessert I chose was a flourless chocolate torte and it was exquisite! To top it off our server was attentive and engaged. Would highly recommend the Sapphire Grill.

We had a wonderful experience here. Definitely a gourmet restaurant, with wonderful menu and expert cooking. Bouillabaisse is magnificent. My companions had the grouper and steak ( huge portion) and they raved. Creme brûlée was outstanding . It is expensive, about $100 pp with wine and tip.
