We stumbled over this place after visiting the Owens-Thomas house--it is across the side street and an excellent choice for a reasonably priced lunch in a magnificent setting. After an excellent lunch, we decided to return a few days later for dinner and we were not disappointed.
The restaurant is actually in a building constructed in 1790--hence it's name.
For dinner, my wife chose a pork tenderloin dish and I chose the boursin chicken. Both were served with potatoes and steamed vegetables and the meals were excellent.
For added enjoyment, there was also a piano player

This restaurant has some of the best decor in historic Savannah. It has brickwork inside and out, beamed ceilings and matching decor. Unfortunately, their definition of Sunday Brunch was just a limited menu. There were very few items on their Sunday Brunch menu. The bisque we ordered was terrific. There entrees were not. The shrimp were tasteless. The service was mediocre. Very disappointing after the good reviews given this restaurant. I might be tempted to try again, but never on Sunday.

we went to 1790 our last night in Savannah and it was our best dinner there.. Excellent food and our waiter was extremely helpful, welcoming and polite. Very nice old atmosphere and quite rooms( other restaurants in Savannah are too noisy for my taste) and the history of the several ghost that inhabit the place make the experience a little more interesting. The escargot appetizer are the best ever!!!!!!!!

We met another couple for a nice dinner. It was definitely a nice dinner. The food was excellent, with the minor exception of the hot biscuits that weren't quite cooked through (we did not complain). The piano man was quite talented. Our server was friendly and attentive, but did have one small mishap...he forgot our appetizers. The tomato bisque was very good. My Shrimp and Scallop Scampi was scrumptious. Evidently my husband's trout was exceptional, because I was never even offered a taste. He later admitted he didn't want to share! We would gladly recommend 17hundred90 Restaurant to friends, family and strangers on the street! As a matter of fact, we actually did recommend it to strangers while in Savannah!!!

What a charming building and atmosphere, but sadly the value of the food and the lack of service spoiled it. We started our dinner with the crab cakes, which we found to be mushy and tasteless. Our entrees of Salmon and Steak Medalions were quite good, albeit the portions small for the price. But the thing we most remember about the 1790 was the lack of service. They were not even busy at the time we were there and still we had to stop a different waiter other than our own twice to ask for tea refills and to finally get our check.
