Stumbled into this establishment on a Friday night, The restaurant was pretty busy,there was a 20 minute wait so we headed to the bar for a cocktail before dinner, The atmosphere there is just amazing, old brick everywhere, learned a little bit about the history from Patrick, the owner, we learned that it was also haunted. The bar was very busy, luckily there was an open spot on the comfortable couches they have nestled next to the fireplace. My Boyfriend went and ordered our drinks at the bar while I guarded the couch. Even though it was very busy it felt like we were nestled at home with the amazing fireplaces.
Once our table was ready, we sat down, Jason was our server. Told us about the specials, which sounded yummy. We ordered a bottle of Annabella Pinot Noir which came highly recommended from Jason. We started with the Fried Green Tomatoes, they were great with the balsamic reduction and the pepper jack cheese. The 1790 signature salad was wonderful with the raspberry vinaigrette, and the crab stew and the biscuits, talk about heaven, they were simply to die for. I ordered the Neptune Trio and my boyfriend ordered the Blackened New York Strip Steak with Bleu Cheese sauce. My boyfriends steak was cooked to perfection, and all three components of my dinner was delicious. The risotto and the mashed potatoes were good, however the Vegetables were ok. We were way to full for dessert. We sat and listened to the piano player, enjoyed the rest of our wine and ended our evening.
We would highly recommend the restaurant to everyone. Jason did a great job taking care of our every need. All in all its a beautiful spot and relax and have a nice dinner. The restaurant also is an Inn, I wish we could have looked at the rooms they had but they were all booked up. But the rates were very reasonable, I want to stay here next time we come back and visit Savannah, There is the most haunted room which is room 204, so i want to see what its like!
