Built in classic Paladdian architecture, the building is a beautiful presence in the market area. In the fashion of the era, the firehouses were commonly community meeting places. Thus, the Germanian Society erected a Grand Ballroom on the second floor of the building. With sixteen foot ceilings, fourteen foot arched windows and vintage iron chandeliers, it is one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Savannah, seating 120 and complete with its own private bar. The main floor is a beautiful Victorian room with lavish gilt mirrors, original pressed tin ceiling, romantically illuminated with whimsical chandeliers. Garibaldi offers a variety of menus, and specializes in customizing menus to your specific needs. Gracious service and outstanding food is our highest goal and has helped us earn the Zagat Award of Distinction once again for 2011/12.

    We visited Savannah for the first time and the best meal we had was here. Chicken piccata was excellent, my husband said the shrimp cocktail was the best he has had in a long time, clams in wine sauce was good and lasagna was excellent as well. Caprese salad appetizer was not worth the $10 they charged--it was 2 slices of tomato and 2 specks of fresh bland mozzarella. It was not worth $10. Should have been more like $3. We have had the same quality and taste in our hometown for way less cost. It was $150 for 2 adults and 2 kids, which is outrageous and 3 of us drank water, no alcohol included in that total. We found that everything in Savannah, food related, was incredibly overpriced. Still, Garibaldi's was the best meal we had while there and we tried Lady and Sons and Barracuda Bob's on the river as well.

    Came to Savannah for my 5 year anniversary. Lady at the florist shop recommended Garibaldi to me and it was great. Arrived at 5:30 so the noise level wasn't bad, and the food was perfect. My wife liked the romantic atmosphere and loved her diamond scored flounder. Will go back!

    Probably better than our experience. We dined here the night before the Savannah marathon with 20,000 participants in town so the kitchen and staff were overwhelmed. Restaurant was beautiful but food just okay and service slow. Would expect it's much better on a regular evening.

    My friend and I spent the weekend in Savannah and were told to check out Garibaldi's. We made a reservation for Saturday night and were seated right upon arrival. The place is very pretty - low lighting and romantic - it would definitely be a nice date night spot. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Bread was brought to our table to start and it was extremely fresh and warm. I ordered the Chicken Milanese - absolutely delicious - one of the best meals I've ever had. Chicken was tender and tasty, as was the mac and cheese and string beans on the side. I finished every morsel on my plate. My friend ordered the scallops and also enjoyed her meal. Definitely the best dining experience we had on our weekend in Savannah!

    I went to Garibaldis for a night out with family. From the moment we got there, everything was wonderful. We started off with French onion soup and the Tuscan white bean soup-both were the best ever. For our entrees we got the chicken Parmesan and chicken Milanese. Absolutely delicious. The server (Chase) was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu and answered questions about the specials. He is what you'd expect from a fine dining server. We will definitely eat here again.

    Since it was our first visit to Savannah, we checked Zagat's Top 10 restaurants in Savannah and chose Garibaldi's. We enjoyed our dinner. It was Halloween and some of the servers were in costume, but that didn't lessen their attentiveness. My husband and I shared a Garibaldi salad--which made it just the right size if you plan on eating dinner after the salad! Our entrees were well prepared--I had the clams and linguine--just enough sauce, the linguine wasn't drowning in it. We would definitely go there again.

    We were greeted and seated pleasantly and efficiently. The servers were knowledgable about the menu items and not phased when asked for a particular dish without butter, sauce etc. The ambience was lovely, we were lucky to be seated in a booth on the wall side opposite the bar so had a good view for people watching and to enjoy the atmosphere. The food was outstanding, nicely presented, hot and very good quality. The servers Jennifer and Matt were very pleasant and we enjoyed the whole evening which they enhanced with their personalities. This was the best dining experience of our stay in Savannah.

    It had been a very long time since I'd last eaten at Garibaldi's, but it was almost exactly as I remembered. I've actually eaten at both the Savannah and Charleston locations and the menus are almost the exact same. This was the first time I had dined with a large group though, and the restaurant was equally capable of handling a large, fun crowd as it is at handling a romantic dinner for two. I will always recommend Garibaldi's when I have the chance.

    Garibaldi's came highly recommended for the flounder and did not disappoint. One of our party also ordered the veal and loved it. The only issue I have is the noise level. It was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation without shouting across the table. I would still recommend Garibaldi's based solely on the quality of the food, however.

    The service was slow. We had to ask why our entrees were taking so long and had to ask for second alcoholic cocktails twice. The four people at the table next to our table of three came in later thank we did, ate, and got there check before we were even served. Also, the noise level was high and my wife tells ME that I'm going deaf. The food was terrific but for the above results, certainly not worth it. We will not be going back.

    From first to last we were disappointed. Led to the upstairs room that melted Moldy we asked to be seated downstairs and were. After telling the server that I am allergic to cilantro ( causes severe gastric problems) Was served a mignonette made fro cilantro. Teri requested dressing on the side for her Caesar salad and it came drenched. The veal piccata was unevenly pounded so it was thick and tough in places. To add to the situation two bus boys collided and sent cocktail sauce and oyster shells over one of the Men at the next table. Should have known when we were almost the youngest there ( I am 68) that it was not for Us

    Went for a birthday celebration. Got nice quiet corner table. Service good. Food seriously disappointing. Veal in the veal parm dinner was pounded paper thin and heavily breaded so you could barely taste the veal. Gumbo mostly okra with just a hint of the shellfish. Very nice dessert and they wrote Happy Birthday on the plate but it didn't really make up for the dinner being so disappointing.

    The overall experience was a good one although we had to force the issue with regard to seating. As with many restaurants today, the host or hostess is given instructions to direct patrons to the less than desirable tables first. If no one complains then all the better. This restaurant tried to seat us upstairs in a ballroom-style hall with bright lights, high-ceiling and best of all, 3 tables of eight folks all having a great loud time. Then there was the two of us. Only complaining got us a table on the main floor. Noisy still but at least we belonged to the crowd this time. We are beginning to wonder whether some restaurants put OpenTable reservations behind other reservations in the queue.

    This was our third time to dine at Garibaldi in Savannah. Each experience has been tremendous. The food has always been gourmet, the staff, wait and desk, are hospitable, kind and make one feel like family, and the ambiance relates to the Savannah experience. This restaurant is among our top five restaurants in the world.
