    I chose Noble Fare to celebrate our 32nd anniversary from a co-worker's recommendation. We were very pleased with the food and service. My lamb shank was tender and tasty. My wife ordered the filet and said it was the best she's ever tasted. Delightful dining.

    In the steps of modern and classical restaurant service, there are things like the wine order and the commanded cooking temperature for meat that should not be forgotten. In our case, both were and to our amazement only when we made a point of sending for one and sending another back did anything happen. Served in a nouvelle cuisine style of stacking artistically arranged small portions, the food was better on the second go around, but it was smaller than it was the first time. When I return to Savannah, I may return to Noble Fare in the future to see if my impression of was misguided.

    This was my second visit to Noble Fare. The entrees were fine, Grouper and Scallops. My friend started with the Tomato Bisque, delicious but too large as a starter. The House Rules salad was abysmal! Certainly not tasty... limp greens, dried cranberries and small pecans with a dollop of what seemed to be cream cheese on the side. Not creative. The breads desite our server extolling their virtue as being made 'in house' were nothing unusual and served with one round scoop of butter, ancho sauce and pesto sauce. Nice try but unappealing. Sherbert between courses was out of synch for casual attire of diners in what is supposed to be a fine restaurant. Seemed to be trying too hard. Don't know if we'll go back again.

    My husband had the filet mignon and said be didn't need a knife to cut it, that it melted liked butter and was cooked perfectly. I had the delicious tomato bisque as a starter and the fresh catch (salmon) as my main, which was light and fresh, probably the best salmon I've ever had in my life. Had the chocolate love cake for dessert. My husband said he would only eat a bite or two but it was so good he had half of it. Chocolatey, with fresh fruits and raspberry sauce. Wish I could eat it again. At the start of the meal we were brought a complimentary champagne toast which was a wonderful gesture for our anniversary. Staff was friendly and attentive all evening.

    Excellent! Salads were so decadent with many flavors. I loved the house salad and tried my husband's grilled salad just to taste the superb little nuggets of deliciousness! I had the scallops which I enjoyed served over a bed of corn succotash! My husband had the strip steak which he said it was the best he ever had! Of course, we shared dessert which was crime brûlée which is always a favorite. If you haven't been to noble fare you definitely need to! As I always say, the best restaurant in savannah!

    We had dined at Noble Fare about four years ago and remembered it fondly. It was still as good as we remembered. The interior decor is impressive and romantic. My steak was beautifully charred and seasoned and cooked to perfection and we both loved the grouper my husband ordered. We will definitely look them up again when in the area.

    We became fans when we lived in Savannah and we never miss an opportunity to dine here when we return to our place in the historic district. Noble Fare never disappoints. Patrick is outstanding in the kitchen and his wife Jen is the perfect "master" of the house. Creative menu well executed. Fun, interesting wine list. This is one of those places that the locals hope the tourists never learn about.

    The meal was simply perfect, although it was not a simple meal. We ordered the 7 course tasting menu on a whim and we were impressed with every bite. Don't miss the scallops, the duck, or well, anything they bring to the table. In addition, they were easily able to accommodate our food allergies and still make everyone at the table very happy. Great menu, great chefs. It's a must.

    Although I've lived in Savannah for years, this was my first visit to Noble Fare. My husband and I ate here for our anniversary and enjoyed every minute. I had the ahi tuna tartar appetizer, my husband had the grilled romaine salad. His salad was quite generous in size, with delicious serrano ham and cheese. He then had the filet while I opted for the "duck-duck-duck-no goose" entree. Both were delicious. Some reviewers have complained about portion size and leaving hungry. I was so full I couldn't finish my entree. But of course that didn't stop us from enjoying the chocolate love cake at the end. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Good wine recommendations from a diverse list of choices. We will be back!

    Dinner at Noble Fare was an experience. Cooking is a hobby of mine, and I usually am not blown away with eating at a restaurant. Not to say that I don't enjoy the food, just that I set the bar high to be impressed. However, Noble Fare served some of the best food I have ever eaten. Lobster mashed potatoes, perfectly prepared medium-rare steak, pan-seared Halibut crusted perfectly and tender in the inside, lime sorbet palate cleanser that worked for it's intended purpose, but also reminded me of fresh-squeezed key limes, and an oozing chocolate cake and creamy custard creme brûlée for dessert. Foodie heaven....

    We actually tried to get into Pink House and we are so happy we didn't. Noble Fare was hands down one of the most exquisite meals I've ever had. It's off the beaten path a bit but such a special place. I had the coffee chocolate rubbed pork tenderloin and my boyfriend had the lamb shank. The server was very knowledgeable , there are not enough adjectives to rave about the food.

    Dined on 5/29/2014
    We just moved to Savannah from NYC and have been working our way through the local restaurants. Our first trip to Noble Fare was fantastic. We decided to splurge on the chef's 7 course wine and food tasting. Absolutely delicious. Our only complaint was that there was too much of everything, wine included. Fois gras - outstanding. Tuna tartare delicious. The cocoa rubbed pork terrific. Grouper to die for. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive but not too attentive. We liked that the tables were far enough apart that you could talk -- great music in the background & despite high ceilings, the noise level is low. I can't say I love the gothic interior -- but that won't prevent me from coming again.

    Prices seemed high, particularly for wine, but after we'd dined they didn't seem so bad. Our appetizers and main meals were terrific. Notable meal service, starting with complimentary 'amuse bouche' (tiny crackers topped with Räucherlachs) and punctuated with a small glass of lemony aperitif (also complimentary) immediately before the main meal.

    Dined on 5/22/2014
    While vacationing in Savannah, we enjoyed five wonderful dinners at some of the city's best restaurants - Elizabeth was the clear winner - complex flavor profiles, beautiful presentations, strong wine list, elegant surroundings, professional service (perhaps a bit rushed). Noble Fare was also excellent - intimate decor, pleasant service, but minor preparation issues (pork was dry) and very large portion sizes place it a notch behind. Alligator Soul and Local 11ten made fine showings as well. Least pleasing was The Old Pink House - while the food was good and the service professional, this is a restaurant aimed at tourist - large scale food production, stereotypical preparations, and even a roving singer seeking tips.

    Just slightly off the main historic Savannah district grid, we followed other reviewers' recommendations and were so well rewarded. Service, thanks John, was excellent. Food, wild mushroom soup (not just any mushroom soup, this was supremely tasty) and duck,duck,duck, no goose were done to perfection, and to order. Had a wonderful time at the upstairs lounge before dining, and throughout, waitstaff were friendly and thoughtful. What a great date night. Couldn't ask for better food, a better time or a better atmosphere (unique decor). They were kind enough to send for a bike-cab to take us back to the hotel. Loved this place - our best experience in Savannah.

    My sister and I each worked in the restaurant industry for years - we grew up in Manhattan and have both traveled in Europe. We took our mom here for dinner during her 70th birthday weekend - it was excellent! We are detail oriented and this restaurant did not miss a beat. ALL of the food was amazing - 2 appetizers, 3 entrees and dessert. We got a wine recommendation from our waitress which hit the mark perfectly. I cannot rave enough about this establishment. My sister, mom and I all noted our dinner at Noble Fare as one of the highlights of a fun filled weekend. Cudos to the husband/wife team who own it. They have done it right.
