    I liked this room and the ambiance, but the food seemed to be good but not great. It seems that the chef concentrates too much on have unusual dishes. I had scallops which were fine,but not special. The server was little help with the wine selection and did not seem to be very knowledgable about the various offerings.

    Oysters a'la Soul are a must for an appetizer! The duck and dumplings main course was fantastic as well. Service was top-notch, but the ambient music selection was questionable (sounded like AT40... OneRepublic and Katy Perry??)

    In a word, we LOVED it! The wine selection is impressive and the food is even better. My wife and I were in Savannah for the weekend and had heard of Alligator Soul. To begin, we shared the Oysters A la Soul and House Salad. Both were marvelous. In particular, the oysters come with a drizzle on the side that was amazing. For our entrees I had the Roasted Leg of Lamb, she had the Shrimp and Grits. I subbed an order of Frittes instead of the Brussel Sprouts - it was a good decision. They were great. When we finished, as we walked back to our hotel, we agreed that this was one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. I simply cannot recommend Alligator Soul enough!

    This by far was one of the best dining experiences I've had (in regards to both service and food)! We booked reservations here for our anniversary and before we even were seated they had two mini-torts with a "Congratulations" message on the table, if that's not a good start I can't think of a better one. The staff was excellent from the hosts to bartender to server, all extremely friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Our server was great and all of his suggestions were spot on! The ambiance was just right, dimly lit, hushed, and romantic without being overly so. From the start to the finish this was the best dining experience I've had!

    This place was fantastic! The food was great and ambiance was great and the staff was unbelievable. My husband and I are notorious for finding the worst places to eat when we are on vacation BUT this place has restored our faith that we are not cursed. I came across the entrance while out exploring Savannah and the smells coming up the stairs were intoxicating. I asked around and people said their food was pretty good so I made a reservation. We were not disappointed. I got the Lamb with a shrimp and grits side and my husband got the Duck, all I have to say is WOW! Our friends got the Filet and the Suckling Pig and they were pleased as well. They also have some inventive and delicious drink concoctions I would recommend as well.

    We arrived at 8:00 for our 8:00 reservation and were informed our table was not ready. After 20 minutes went by, we noticed there were numerous open tables and people who arrived after us were being seated ahead of us. The maitre'd then came by and told us our table was almost ready. 10 minutes later we started to question the maitre'd about the delay. He had no answers but eventually got seated. Bad start. Adam, our waiter, seemed great, but our food took forever and Adam disappeared. He never stopped by the table until long after we finished. And the food was average, at best, which is disappointing when you are paying $30+ for entrees. Very disappointing.

    My husband and I had reservations for our 21st anniversary this past weekend. The whole experience was wonderful! From the service to the food, we both enjoyed our first experience at Alligator Soul. The charcuterie plate was absolutely amazing! I think the olive alone was the best I had ever eaten. My husband had the oysters a la soul and he raved about the hot sauce (we should have brought some home). For our entrees we had the Gumbo and the Lamb and both were really good. Our server Megan was great, but I loved how it seemed like the whole staff took care of our table. The box with mini pecan pies wishing us a happy anniversary was a great touch and one we truly appreciated.

    This place is well advertised and in plain site but I refused to see it all this time unintentionally. My wife and I dined this past weekend and fell in love with the food, service and atmosphere. Sunny was our server and he knew his business, he was exact and very specific down to the details of what spices were used in the menu item. One recommendation is to add music, No background music, conversations from all the tables filled the air with a white noise, but it would have been nice to fill the air with some music. A second observation/recommendation is that the bathroom was like walking from a well setup restaurant to a local buffet bathroom that was plain and without thought. A change of tiles, counters and lighting would help.

    We ordered the house salad, scallops, and duck breast. The salad was excellent. The scallops were served over risotto that was not fully cooked, as evidenced by the crunchy center. While not a fatal flaw, it did diminish from the overall quality of the entree. The duck was a creative entree with interesting flavors, but was served barely lukewarm, thereby diminishing the overall presentation and flavors. I would probably return and give them another chance, but it can be difficult to shed first impressions, particularly when there exist many other restaurants in the neighborhood.

    In researching restaurants to visit for our first taste of Savannah, Alligator Soul came up with stars among a select few. Our early reservation and subsequent on time arrival found this restaurant in its prime time period seemingly short on tables and assistance. We waited for our experience to begin and when it did, our friendly waitress had an assistant in training, which we found to be a curious lesson in prime time Saturday night with a highly rated restaurant hitting 99% of its tables taken. While every course was very good, timing was not and so we started playing cards to pass the time between courses to the amazement of other diners and the management. Our dinner took nearly 3 hours while we saw larger tables come on go.

    This was our second visits to Alligator Soul, the first being about 7 years ago. Being with friends this time, we hoped that they would be as amazing as they were the first time. They were! Alligator Soul exceeds any other restaurant in which I have ever eaten. Their service is next-to-none with their servers extremely knowledgeable and attentive to one's every need. Their food is tremendous with creative variations prepared perfectly. This is a restaurant where one can have a romantic meal, where every need is met, where class still remains.

    Upscale Cajun food but despite the name not much offered on the menu that involved alligator. This pleased my wife but I was looking forward to some unusual items. The grouper fish was excellent. My wife tried a vegan dish....did not work for her. She sent it back and ordered the grouper like I had. She enjoyed it much more. The waiter was very apologetic. The manager also was very apologetic. Did not offer any thing to make up for the return. At least he did not charge us for it.

    We enjoyed a very good dinner here. The menu was very interesting which made selections difficult. My wife enjoyed the house salad and said the scallops were cooked perfectly. She was skeptical of the persimmon glaze but found it tasty. The pomegranate risoto was wonderful. The spinach was good but should have been drained better as it left a puddle of green water around the risoto. The gumbo was good but not the best I ever had as I was hoping. Likewise the alligator/pork belly sausage was good but not the best either as other reviewers have suggested. The duck was excellent with interesting sweet potato puree and truffled sour cream making an interesting base. The banana beignets were wonderful.

    We were traveling through Charleston, Beaufort, and Savannah and the entrees we has here were the best. We has the creole jambalaya and duck. Both were amazing. The house salad was wilted in dressing unfortunately and house bread not great, but the service and entrees made up for it!! Also, they were great about giving us a special table and honoring our anniversary.

    We selected this particular restaurant after reading the reviews & on the request of a family member who'd been here once before & loved it. We were celebrating a birthday as well as another life milestone this particular night. The service staff made a point of mentioning these celebrations more than once which made our guests feel special. The food here is unique as well as delicious. Elk, bison, alligator as well as the traditional fare of chicken and beef are offered. Everything was delicious. The only complaint we had was that the seating near the bar was noisy which made conversation somewhat difficult. Suggest requesting a table toward the back of the dining area.

    We were unhappy from the moment we arrived when the host sat us at the worst table in the restaurant. I made our reservation a month prior expecting a quiet table for two. We asked to be moved and were seated in a back room with several open tables. I'm still not sure why we weren't seated there first. Our waitress (Kate) was very nice and was doing a great job until she got very busy with other tables. We waited a very long time for dessert and even longer for our check. The food was OK, not outstanding and not reflective of the prices. Overall, a huge disappointment. We will probably not return.

    We went to Savannah on a birthday weekend trip and had made dinner reservations for Alligator Soul. This was by far the best restaurant experience I have ever had. From the decore and music to the excellent staff service and fantastic food options, there was nothing that was off the mark. The staff were very attentive, wished me a happy birthday. I even got a small gift from the restaurant. We had cups of the Soul Creole and Shrimp & Grits, a half order of the baked oysters, and red deer from New Zealand. We live 5 hours away and I would drive to Savannah for the night, just to have dinner here again. There are truly no words to describe Alligator Soul other than you must go to experience it yourself. It was all fantastic.

    One of the best restaurants we've been to in Savannah. We had the ribeye steak and the pork loin, both of which were excellently prepared. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and everyone wished us well, and the pecan tarts were a delightful touch. The service was not overly solicitous; it's sub-street level location gives one the feeling of dining in a wonderful cave. Highly recommended, and wish they had a restaurant in Brooklyn.

    The food was outstanding, started the meal off with gator & pork sausage which quite possibly could be the best sausage I 've ever eaten..and being an Italian from NY, that says a lot! I followed that up with the Red Deer Medallions which was paired perfectly with Brussels sprouts. My wife went with the grouper dish which she absolutely enjoyed. The server was attentive and personable. One thing they did that I think every restaurant should do is ask if anyone on the table has allergies. Raising a child with severe allergies is something we deal with on a daily basis, we found it extremely thoughtful that they asked.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and we don't think we could have found anything more perfect. It is located in a basement and the ambiance was subdued and romantic even though every table was filled. The entire staff was warm and welcoming and each person did their best to make us feel special on our special day. From the special box of tartlets on our table to the bottle of wine. The food was very fresh and well prepared and each course was presented in a timely fashion so that you never felt rushed. There were so many interesting choices it was hard to make a selection but the Scallops and Ribeye Steak that we ordered were great. We hope that we will have the opportunity to visit again very soon.
