Outstanding food and service
The food here was superb, fresh, and inventive. The service was excellent, our waiter was very knowledgeable, and it was obvious he had worked there for quite some time and truly loved his job. This is a must visit in Savannah.

This was my third dinner and
This was my third dinner and it was excellent just like the others - We ate our way thru Savannah's bets - Elizabeth's on 37th, Pink House and Sapphire. Impossible to pick a favorite.

Superb dining experience.
Superb dining experience. My wife & I shared the littleneck clams/octopus appetizer, which was outstanding. My wife had the tuna mignon, which was superb. I had the veal strip loin with braised oxtail which was very good. For dessert, we shared the berry cobbler with lemon gelato, which was to die for.

This was my second time visiting Sapphire Grill. My husband and I were n town for the night and the food and wine were fantastic. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgable. Love that it is a local spot! Will be back on my next visit.

The benne encrusted grouper and tuna were excellent. The venue was athletically pleasing. The server, Corthney, was attentive without being instructive.

Was in town for a conference and it also happened to be my anniversary. Some friends recommended Sapphire Grill and what a great recommendation. They have some great and unique mixed drink options, bartender did a great job. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, he gave us great suggestions, food was absolutely fantastic (highly recommend the Chefs Selection - 6 courses of the best food on the menu), timing of the food was perfect. Overall a great evening for many reasons...thanks for the wonderful meal.

Stick with the apps
The appetizer menu was strong, and the two apps we had were quite good. The bone marrow in particular was very nice, and the scallops that came with it were delicious. But we were a little bit disappointed with the entrees. The duck was fine, and the grouper was also fine. Nothing spectacular. We feel like it was over-priced compared to the quality of the entree. If we ever go again, I'm ordering two things off the appetizer menu and steering clear of the entrees.

Friendly Service and Great Food
Along with an innovative menu and a helpful, friendly wait person, we had a great dining experience. Try gnocchi. Our friend thought he'd gone to foodie heaven.

The best salmon ever!!
Terrific service and perhaps the best salmon I have ever eaten. My husband felt the same way about the bouillabaisse. This is a must do whenever you are in Savannah.

I dream about this meal....
Sapphire Grill is my favorite place to eat in Savannah. We go whenever we can and get the 6 course tasting menu. It will blow your mind! It's different every time. And do yourself a favor and get the wine pairings with it. You won't be disappointed!

Impeccable service outstanding food
We celebrated a birthday dinner and opted to go all out with Chef Chris' six course menu plus wine pairing. Every bite was delicious and the wine selection truly made the experience perfect. Our waiter, Ernie, was a gem with the right mix of attention, knowledge and humor! Saffire is a definite must when in Savannah.

Sapphire grill is a gem
Our group of 7 arrived early for our reservation and were immediately seated. The stAff was attention, knowledgeable and courteous. The food was fantastic. Fresh Grouper is a must have. They graciously accepted our request to divide the check.

Food and service were top notch. Not a tourist trap. We loved it!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We work in F&B at top rates resorts in SC. Food, service atmosphere were great! I really enjoyed the fact that they had a la on one side of the menu and on the other side they had composed dishes and had a feature as well. It wasn't a very big menu but it had a lot of options so you can make a decision!

I enjoyed dinner with my MDVIP
Doctors! We all loved it! Thank you!

Unreal and oh so yum
The great evening started with me having to change my reservation and it was no issue. I received a call day of fromDavid who confirmed my reservation and my request for a great table for a special evening. These guys do read the open table requests! The service was spectacular, the meal was better. 5stars, no doubt!

On the recommendation of a friend who frequents Savannah, I dined at Sapphire and it turned out to be an awesome experience from the service to the food to the atmosphere........total experience was enjoyable!

great anniversary spot
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Savannah. The Sapphire Grill was better than expected. The staff was friendly and our waitor was attentive. But we were most impressed with the food! The calamari was perfect. My husband had the blackened grouper and I had the swordfish. Both outstanding! Made our 23rd Anniversary dinner one of the best.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely Dining Experience
Tried Sapphire Grill based on Open Table and Fodors recommendations and had a lovely early weeknight dinner. The calamari was an excellent starter. My husband enjoyed the Benne-crusted Black Grouper and My Bouillabaise was full of excellent seafood, but a bit under-seasoned. The petit bitter chocolate gateau was beautifully presented with peanut gelato and a demitasse of hot chocolate. Great service, cool atmosphere, very nice overall experience.

Chef Christopher Nason is great!
My wife & I have now visited The Sapphire Grill 4 times for special birthday & anniversary occasions. Each time Chris & his well trained professional staff have attended perfectly to my special requests. For romance, privacy, and fantastic entries...plus a very good wine list, this is one restaurant that must be on your list in Savannah.

You can never go wrong at Sapphire
From food to service, Sapphire Grill has it down. You can always count on a meal that will be prepared to your liking and the consistency of the menu keeps me coming back. It's a downtown classic. I hope to move away from the encrusted grouper one day but it's hard to leave something so good.
I like the Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc on the menu too, a great Napa vineyard. Thanks for the nice wine selections that are by the glass.

Chef Nason continues to impress
Chef Nason continues to impress with his creative and delicious takes on menu favorites - the calamari is the BEST in town, hands down. We've dined at Sapphire Grill every time we've been in Savannah, and it's one of the few restaurants we repeatedly visit. The specials are always new, and the service is always A++. Sapphire Grill is one of those rare gems that leaves you with a craving until the next time you have the pleasure of dining at the restaurant. Can't wait to get back there!

The staff is suburb and the food is excellent. Located just off the City Market area next to Paula Dean.

Very enjoyable spot. A little on the expensive side, but we enjoyed our dining experience.

We felt like royalty!
We had the BEST experience here. We went with the chef's choice and indulged in the most wonderful tastes and presentations. The wine was outstanding and our waiter, Ernie was the absolute best. He even suggested restaurants in Charleston for us. This place goes over and above the usual. The food was outstanding. We felt like we were the only ones dining!

Tasty but Pricey
The food was good, great portions and was presented very well. I suppose for the location the prices may have been appropriate but still a little pricey. Our server was attentive and pleasant. Our table though was very small which never makes for a relaxing meal. We were seated in the bar area which was fine but am sure if you were dining later in the evening may get a little noisy. Definitely worth a try.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chic and delicious
First time in Savannah, this restaurant has a cool, chic vibe. Our server was very attentive, although it was fairly slow for a Friday evening. The food was delicious...I had a salad and then the Grouper which was fresh and very good. Husband had tenderloin and he raved...he is very picky with his filets and he was very pleased. Would recommend for couples looking for nice, upscale dinner in a cool, bar-vibe setting.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was amazing! Waiter was a true professional! Made us more hungry by the minute while describing the food as pieces of art. Even my 8th grader said " Wow he sure uses a lot of adjectives" Will be going back for sure!
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We asked for a private table to celebrate our first year anniversary and they gave us a table in the wine cellar. They played music for us and we were very happy to be able to have a room to ourselves. The staff was more than friendly. Our waiter was attentive but not over-bearing which was perfect so we could have our alone time. They even gave us a dessert plate which read "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate with a couple of chocolate covered strawberries. Very sweet chef and staff. We will definitely go back for a special occasion.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service and food was excellent, it was our anniversary and they made it very special.

I was attending a conference
I was attending a conference in Savannah. By far, this was the best meal I had in Savannah (and I had some really good meals). I had the Bouillabase and Foie Gras. Both were exceptional. Others at the table had the special of the night, tuna and sirloin steak. Portions size were good. The service was great. I was impressed by the wine list-included really good and not well known wineries in California. The Creme Brulee was a perfect ending to a great meal.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and service
We had a wonderful dinner and a great server who explained how dishes were prepared and what we could expect from each. This is a wonderful choice when you are visiting Savannah. Highly recommend.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food once again.
Try to go to Sapphire Grill everytime I am in Savannah. This time like the last was excellent food, and excellent service. The only disappoint was it appeared they pushed the prices up for tourist season. Everything was a bit higher but the wine was way over priced.
Still a good spot and will definetely go back but next time wont be with a group of people.

Wonderful anniversary celebration!!
We had our wedding reception here 10 years ago (second floor). The food was superb and our guests were beautifully served. Fast forward 10 years and the same high standards remain. We weren't able to have the "nook" table on the second floor because, ironically enough, a wedding party was using the space. So, the General Manager offered us the wine cellar downstairs. It is exactly that, where the white wines are chilled (two separate units) and the reds are lined up in nice rows along one wall. One table in the room just for us. Our server was more than attentive and took excellent care of us. The food was as expected: excellent flavors and beautiful presentation. Check this place out for yourself - you will NOT be disappointed!.

I am a long time resident of Savannah and have been to the Saphire Grill numerous times but our last experience there was fabulous. We decided to be adventurous and order the chef six course meal paired with his selection of wines. We were not disappointed. The food and wine pairings were perfect. The service staff was also exceptional, explaining each course and the wine paired with it. It was a very romantic evening at Saphire Grill celebrating my wife's birthday. We look forward to our next meal there.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Sapphire Grill is AMAZING! My wife and I eloped and went to Sapphire grill to eat and celebrate. We had a private table in the wine cellar to ourselves. The lighting was dimmed very nicely and there was music playing. Our server was Ernie, his personality and great service made our night even more special. If you go ask for him, you won't be disappointed. The manager came and checked on us as well too. Now to the food, we were left speechless. The chef is really talented. For our first starter we had the clams, the broth is to die for. You have to dip your bread in the broth. I had the tuna for our main entree and my wife had the bouillabaisse. The food was just perfect! There was a cocktail I had called the Moscow mule, it's a must try

A nice dinner - a bad after taste
Our first courses and entrees were tasty.
I eat small portions. When I asked to pack up the remaining 2/3 of my dinner the waitress gladly packed it up. My dinner companions and I left the restaurant, walked 100 yards away and then realized I forgot my 'doggie bag". In that 2 minutes the waitress had tossed my next days' dinner in the trash.
They should have either walked out the door to look for me (i didn't get very far), or at least set it aside for a few minutes to see if I came back.
The waitress or manager did not offer an apology or any remediation. after an expensive meal, I felt cheated.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Off the charts - best filet I have experienced in a long time. seared outer crust and cooked to perfection.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Plan on returning with a group of friends hopefully in the near future.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service, expensive
Went here to celebrate after the marathon. Our waiter was extremely knowledgable and helpful. All the food was excellent. It was pricey however. 5 drinks, 4 appetizers, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts for three people came out to $335 with tip.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I hadn't been
My husband and I hadn't been here in years! We were pleasantly surprised! Our " date night" dinner was outstanding! The food and the service were great! Our bartender and his creative cocktails were outstanding!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Two thumbs up
Dined at Sapphire Grill Saturday Nov 16. Really felt like my business was appreciated. From the moment we arrived until we departed we had a great experience. The perfect trifecta of Service, Food, Ambiance. Expensive but worth it.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Beautiful meal and wonderful cocktails! Service was great and we had a wonderful time. Thank you!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
This very fine restaurant offers an interesting menu which is well-prepared (my well traveled Italian wife thought her salmon the best she has ever eaten) and served in a most pleasant atmosphere by a very professional wait staff.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Special night out
Food was very good; service exceptional - my husband and I were celebrating out 70th birthdays and it was a good choice. We could visit and it had enough light we could read the menus.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife didn't fancy anything straight off the menu but they were able to invent a pasta dish on the spot which she absolutely loved. I had the salmon which was excellent. The calamari was great and the wine selection very good. Overall a very nice meal with excellent service. Would go again.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
As bright as its name
This is a great restaurant in Savannah's Historic District. Not very impressive from the outside but what a gem inside. Reservations recommended after 7 pm. Food was outstanding: my wife had the benne crusted black grouper which we were told has been on menu for 15 years, since this restaurant opened. It was tremendous. I had Tuna Mignon, a beautiful ahi steak prepared perfectly at medium-rare, also ordered side of grilled asparagus, also prepared well. Warm bread loaf for 2 brought to table was excellent. Just a great overall menu. Also saved room for dessert: Seasonal berry cobbler with lemon gelatto on side. Prepared to order so takes about 15 minutes but well worth the weight.
A place worth visiting over and over again.

Sapphire is Gold
Sapphire Grill is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. The food is excellent. The tuna is exceptional. Start with the calamari. You really cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. I live an hour away but make an effort to get there on a semi-regular basis.

The swordfish was outstanding; the bacon and onion flavoring was delicious.
