Twice we drove from Greensboro to pick up family who have flown in to visit with us. We have thoroughly enjoyed the entire dinning experience both times. We will do it again when we are in Birmingham.

This was our second visit
This was our second visit to Little Savannah. The Bistro Tenderloin was mouth-watering delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly to order. The service, however, was quite so stellar. After we were seated, the waiter was quite prompt in coming to see if we were ready to order a drink. We had only been seated a minute before, so we hadn't had a chance to look at the menu. I regret that we let the waiter leave. We waited for a while before he returned to take our drink order. In fact, by that time, we were ready to order our entrees. I received my salad promptly, but there was an unusually long delay between the salad and receiving our entrees.

We always enjoy our meals
We always enjoy our meals at Little Savannah. It was very thoughtful for the wait staff to give us sparkling wine at the end of our email when they heard we were celebrating a birthday - nice touch. One of the best things about Little Savannah (beside the great food) is the wait staff knows when it is time for things to move - like when everyone is through with appetizer and you are not sitting there waiting for the main course. Totally enjoyable!

Too many greens on my plate
The food and service at Little Savannah is always good. However, on this visit I chose a vegetable plate option, and was a little surprised to see a totally "green" plate arrive at our table. Small garden salad, green beans, asparagus, and spinach. All of the veggies were cooked to perfection, but that was green overload. Maybe just not offer a vegetable plate on the menu if you can't put a little color variety in. Its still a great eatery.

Culinary delight in Birmingham!
Myself and four friends recently dined at Little Savannah and it was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. We take an annual vacation, each time to a new city, focused on local food and wine. We've been all over the US and Little Savannah ranks at the top. The relaxed dress and comfortable decor made it easy to relax, but the quality of the food and service remind you that you are in a fine dining establishment. The cocktails were creative and fun, there was something for everyone. We highly recommend the fried alligator tail and the Black Angus tender off the dinner menu. Little Savannah is a must for anyone headed to Birmingham!

An Outstanding Dining Experience!
This was my second visit to Little Savannah and I am heading back again tonight to introduce another group of friends to this fantastic restaurant. I hosted a party of four for Sunday brunch and every aspect of the experience was perfectly wonderful. First of all, it is a charming restaurant visually, both romantic and cozy. The service was warm, attentive and highly professional and, most important, the food was spectacular. We had red snapper with a marvelous sauce and crabcake over garlic crea spinach topped by a poached egg. Yum! Owner Maureen and Cliff ( Cliff is the chef) and manager Phyllis were exceptional warm and welcoming. An outstanding dining experience in every respect!

A special spot
We had a delightful dinner for four on a Tuesday night. The service, service and ambiance were delightful. For folks who are looking for a quiet dining experience that is outstanding in every respect, try Savannah on a Tuesday Wednesday or Thursday. this is a special restaurant that offer innovative Southern food with panache at moderate prices. A true find in Forest Park!

Gourmet European Bistro Gem
As always, LS (Little Savannah) delivered a top notch, unique dinner and venue. We were entertaining 7 out of town guests and wanted to show off the charm and culinary excellence with one if our favorites. They didn't disappointed! Our guests were so impressed that we have this level of culinary exploration in a city like Birmingham. It's not cheap but the quality far exceeds anything by comparison especially when you consider the atmosphere it delivers. Great unique and creative bar drinks and wine lists. you have to beat the regulars for reservstions however on weekend nights. Well done!t

My husband and I went to Little Savannah for our anniversary. It was a really pleasant experience. The atmosphere was relaxing and I loved all the artwork on the walls. Our waiter was great and answered all of our many questions. The food was excellent. The fried catfish appetizer was the best catfish I've had in a long time! We we're also served two glasses of complimentary champagne for our anniversary, which I thought was very nice. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We'll be back. Soon!!

Incredible food...southern gourmet. Seasonal food, thus seasonal menus. They are big supporters of sourcing ingredients from local farms, which is admirable. Outstanding service. Food is perfectly proportioned...not overwhelming, but you'll leave full and wanting to come back for more. The only negative is that the seating can feel a bit cramped-but that isn't a big deal to us. Highly recommend it!
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love this place. The food is great. The service is just as good as the food and the drinks are some of the best in Birmingham.
5/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great, great food and service!!
Our dinner was absolutely delicious, made even more enjoyable by the excellent service of our waiter, Jay! They highlight local farm fresh ingredients and Jay was able to match wines to each of our dishes. Really amazing.This was our last night of a two week vacation in the South and our experience at "Little Savannah" was the icing on the cake.

Just amazing every time
My wife and I had brunch on Sunday and it was perfect as usual. My steak was awesome and her frittata as well. I can highly recommend the restaurant.

Excellent Food and Service
This is a find as I didn't know this place was there. We went and had drinks first and ten ate a wonderful dinner of duck and pork. Cooked to perfection and service was good as well. I will definitely go back!!

One of Birmingham's Best
Little Savannah is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always exceptional. And if you are fortunate enough to have Derek as your server, you will have an extra special dining experience. This is one of Birmingham 's best restaurants.

Father's Day Brunch
Truly lovely - food was outstanding, nice wait staff, cool vibe. I'm glad we had reservations and I'll go again.

another good experience
We have been to this restaurant several times and always enjoy the food, service and atmosphere. Our only complaint on our most recent visit was the lack of by the glass chardonnay. We have experienced this at another local restaurant and hope it is not a trend. My husband and I enjoy wine with dinner and do not appreciate a restaurant that has only one overpriced glass. We will call and ask about this before we eat at this (and the other) restaurant again.

Quality, Elegnat Food and Cocktails
We had been to Little Savannah for dinner and loved it. When we went back for brunch we were equally as pleased. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktail list is creative and delicious. As always, the food was flavorful and elegant. I will be going back!

Love everything about this place!
My husband and I recently celebrated his birthday at Little Savannah, and we both agreed that it was hands down the best meal we had ever experienced. The shrimp and grits were incredible. I can't stop dreaming and talking about them. We love the casual and funky atmosphere, too. It is by far our favorite place in Birmingham, and we will always make it our special occasion spot.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The staff is always friendly and the food is always good. Not as fond of their menu lately but we will always go back because it has sentimental value for me and my husband.

Super fun night with friends
Our party of four had a great time on a Thursday night here. The menu is unique and very southern in a healthy, fresh way. Great neighborhood ambiance. We were a little surprised when we received flavored "moonshine" instead of sorbet!

Great date night!
My husband and I chose Little Savannah for our first post-baby date night and it did not disappoint! The food was amazing from
the "fried chicken livers" appetizer to my "peach creme brûlée" dessert. Wonderful service as well! We were very pleased and can't wait to go back again!

I took my girlfriend for a birthday dinner and we loved the wild boar and duck. The duck was the best duck I have ever had.

Support of farmers
Small but comfortable dining area. We both loved the fried catfish, my duck breast was delicious and my husband's pork loin chop was good. Both loved our veggies and would have preferred more. Service was excellent. Would definitely go back for a special occasion dinner; too pricy for regular visits.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is by far my favorite restaurant...always good selection of fresh tasty food!

First time here for dinner and WOW! I will be back. The food and service were outstanding. Had the fried chicken and it was yummy. The fried oysters were to die for.

anniversary dinner with my wife
this was a return visit, and what a great experience it was. fantastic food - try the Smoked Artisan Duck Breast if it is available. Derrick, our waiter, was fantastic and knowledgeable of the menu and wine list; paired a great wine (Breggo Chardonnay) with my wife's Wild-Caught Black Grouper dish. for dessert we had the Dessert Duo - Kahlua Truffles and Roasted Apple Gallette.
looking forward to our next visit.

Delicious food and great service
Little Savannah is a wonderful restaurant run by two people who very clearly love food and love what they do. You can see it in everything from the design of their restaurant, the enthusiasm of the staff, the selection of local foods, and the amazing flavors. I love this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone. Definitely try the spicy peach margarita.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
There is no way to give this gem enough praise. The shrimp and grits were beyond superb. All of the ingredients were fresh and I LOVE the fact that they support local farmers. It is evident in the quality and freshness of their food that the owners are thankful for the blessings they have been given and appreciate their customers. Our waiter was an absolute pleasure and treated us as if we were family. I had't seen my friend that I was dining with in a year. We sat, ate and talked for several hours. Never were we made to feel rushed. Our drinks were refreshed and we were doted on the entire time. Quite possibly the best dining experience I have ever had...anywhere. If you have never been to Little Savannah, you need to go. Now.

3 out of 4 dinners were great
Dinner for 4. Each had a different entre, duck, lamb chops, red snapper and spare ribs. All were fabulous except the spare ribs which were dry and tough. Also ordered wilted greens, one of the $6 sides. These never made it to the table. Didn't bother mentioning it because I did not want to wait for them.

Interesting and Better than average
The food was interesting, well prepared and better than average. The service was excellent. The smoked duck breast was delightful and the lamb chops rubbed with coffee were prepared pretty close to my specifications--the flame from the fire must have gotten too hot as they were grilling. My partner loved the snapper fritters, but I didn't find them very interesting--too much like a hush puppy--the snapper got lost somewhere in the batter.
I've eaten at Little Savannah"s previously and found the Shrimp and Grits to be delectable. Its a quaint little restaurant that could stand some sound dampening materials to take more of the edge off of the sound bouncing off of concrete and plaster.
