    The food is upscale, yet not over priced. It is a place you can go for special occasions, but also for romantic dates. I have never been disappointed with the food and service. If I had to complain about one thing is that their dessert menu should include more options ;)

    Service was a little slow. It appeared that the servers had too many tables. Server failed to ask me the temperature for my meat and it was served extremely well done. I had no alternative but to send it back. Food and portions were average. Nothing stood out. There are too many steak houses that are consistent for one to be so mediocre. I will stick with The Palm, Flemings, Ruth's Chris and Mastro's. No need to return here with so many superior choices.

    It was my mom's 70th birthday and she wanted seafood. So we decided to take her to Savanna chop house. Our server Ann was not friendly at all. Never smiled, and just made you feel like she didn't want to be there. The food was good, but there are plenty of restaurants, that have good food, and good service. For the amount of money we spent that night, and they forgot my mom's birthday, we won't be back.

    I had a reservation for three people for my husband's birthday. The first thing the Hostess said to us (after she got our name) was Happy Birthday! So I knew right from the start thing's were going to go well. Our server was so attentive and gave us great reccomendations and they were all so good and we were not disappointed. They brought out a chocolate mousse for my husband's birthday at the very end and it was perfect. Dinner plans went very well.

    We are repeat customers who have been here a number if times. This time we joined another couple and tried the "$20" special and were unhappy with both the quality and quantity of the food. My Pork Osso Bucco" was small in size and good in taste but could have been better. The Calamari Salad was just some arugula and a small patty of Calamari. My wife had the Barramundi Bass and while good in size and taste, it was just the fish with nothing else on the plate. We had tried the perfect 10 in the past which is good for a light meal but this special wasn't special or worth it. Our friends had the Surf and Turf special and one came out ok, the other was wrong and we waited 10 minutes for his , and sadly I am sorry I didn't send mine back!

    we really like Savannah Chop House. The food is always reliably good and with new twists. But instead of just asking which sides we prefer (cheese mashed potatoes, garlic mashed, etc.), the server asked us "and which carbohydrate do you prefer on the side?. It came off a little pretentious. Go back to just asking which side we prefer, please. But we will go back next occasion.

    We dined outdoors and enjoyed the ambiance and the view. We thought the salads (mixed greens and Caesar) and bread were outstanding. We had the Sunday-Monday prime rib special. I thought that the prime rib was over-done for how I ordered it, but it was returned to the kitchen without any fuss. A new piece came back that looked very similar to the one that came the first time. Rather than send it back again and have the rest of the dining party wait for me even longer, I ate it anyway. I thought it tasted bland and would have benefitted from some salt and pepper; however, there was none on the table. The desserts were fabulous (peach cobbler, shortcake in a glass, and flourless chocolate cake).

    Great place, all good and a pleasurable experience.. We were seated promptly and courteously, Hostess was friendly and accommodating. Food was great especially the Lobster Benet appetizer, I commented that I couldn't find anything objectionable! Server, Morgen,( yes, spelled correctly) was more than could be expected. I would request her again and table # 77

I had read the reviews and was somewhat apprehensive but it turned out to be a wonderful experience , I will be going back and definitely would re commend the Savannah Chop House .

    We have been coming to Savannah's for years. The food has always been excellent and we are glad they made it through the very difficult recession years. They have been creative with their offerings so that we could enjoy great food at a reasonable price. Last night we had such great service. I really felt appreciated by everyone.

    Although we have lived very close to this restaurant for more than 11 years, we have only been here three times, including this last visit. Once was for my son's 10th birthday; once was for my husband's 55th birthday; and this last time was just because it was too hot to cook. My husband and I each had the 10 oz. prime rib with baked potato; my daughter had the HUGE Chicken Marsala; and my son had the flat iron steak with the jalapeno crusted cheddar mashed potatoes. All were absolutely delicious. We had fresh oysters as an appetizer with a Granny Smith apple topping - fantastic. Their fresh bread is incredible, very fresh and piping hot. The service was very attentive and polite. All in all, a very enjoyable summer Friday evening!

    Our waiter was Chris Burke and was a delight and very attentive. He knew when to show up and when to be patient. Our meal was excellent as always and the no corkage Wednesday idea, which is new, is a hit with us as locals. We have always felt that a restaurant should offer no corkage or a very minimal corkage fee to locals or long time regulars. Very innovative restaurant with Perfect 10, fantastic bar happy hour and music.

    We have been looking for a nice restaurant for prime rib for some time. Very hard to find these days. The cream of asparagus soup was perfect. The $13 lamb chops were the proper portion size and a great value. I would have enjoyed a more robust martini menu, but other than that, I would return. The magician was very entertaining.

    It was a girls night and we wanted to stay close to home. We decided on SCH based on the reviews. The food, service was excellent. But the restaurant was dead on a friday night. Besides us, there was only one more table. That took away from a buzzing and happening ambiance. Will go back, but not for a girls night out.

    This weekend was the first time we have been at Savannah Chop House even though we have lived in Laguna Niguel since 2003. We went there because it is always mentioned on the local smooth jazz station KSBR and wanted to check it out. The coconut mahi mahi and flourless chocolate cake were excellent. I was surprised to see only one pork chop dish on the menu. It is really more of a steak and seafood place than I was expecting from their name. We would like to go there again tonight.

    Glad to report that the chocolate mousse is now back to its original delicious form, after a period when it was a foamy, tasteless mess. This is still our favorite local restaurant. Service & food are great, & there are many great bargains. The main drawback is the music played when the bands aren't there.
