We happened by the restaurant during the day and were impressed by the menu. A friend of ours who lives in Savannah also recommended it. We made a reservation and when we arrived there was another couple at the bar and no one at any of the tables. We had a drink at the bar and another couple showed up. We ended up dining at the bar as did the other two couples. We had a great evening with excellent food. The bar tender was exceptional and provided some of the best entertainment of the evening. If you want fine food without it being overly heavy this is a good choice.

Recommended by Azalea Inn; busy restaurant week in Savannah, warm welcome, wonderful service, excellent table, great 3/$30 menu, perfect wine and then...having been on the road for a few days, I wanted a little sweet but not a heavy dessert. Sorbet was not on the menu; however, I asked. Oh my...the grapefruit and champagne sorbet made my experience at 45 Bistro wonderful. Thank you so much.

If one likes a large, active bar, they have it in an adjoining room where one can eat at that bar or in nearby tables. If one likes a lot of noise, there is an adjoining room in which to eat. And ... if one likes a calm, reasonably quiet and well decorated place to dine, they have that as well. We took the latter room.

First, this was Restaurant Week where all offered a $30 prix fixe and limited menu. This was far and away the best menu I have seen in several years of this event. Our waiter Dan was as congenial and knowledgeable as any in the business.

All four of us chose an appetizer of beef carpaccio. Abundant, well herbed and with a most unusual crispy capers.

One of us had a filet of beef, declared excellent. One had ossobuco, declared excellent and fell off the bone. I had salmon with orzo and must complain it had too much oil applied. My wife had roasted chicken which was declared excellent, but when combined with the carpaccio demanded a "box for home". In an extraordinary gesture, 45 Bistro put a fresh piece of chicken in the box and added risotto.

Desserts were wonderful with creme brulee and brownie with ice cream, both an ending delight.

Our most recent visit to 45 Bistro reaffirmed its well deserved reputation. The service was attentive and friendly. All of our party ordered different items and each was very well done. The menu is varied but not overwhelming. This restaurant is a dependable favorite.
