Excellent food and great service. Shrimp and grits outstanding.
Perhaps the best dining experience in Savannah. Very creative menu with a lot of locally sourced materials. Fresh baked bread is amazing.
Flat out amazing! Farm to table, each course was amazing! Cocktails were perfect! Highly recommend for foodies!
A bit meh... food was decent but not super special or creative. Located off a hotel lobby area bar, the action seemed more buzzing outside compared to the minimalist decor in the seating area. Our host was very nice and helpful, even if our dishes were not very memorable.
Unfortunately I did not have a good meal here. The ambiance is sterile. The color temperature of the lighting is uneven and off-putting. The server was casually dressed without an apron. Friendly, but not particularly professional for the high prices.
Now the food. I don't recall my appetizer since my disappointment with the main was so profound. Another instance where I was a wimp for not returning it. Sometimes I wish I could be more like my mother and send back stuff that deserves to be sent back. I had the Swine and Fowl. The fried pork belly was fine. It was on top so I ate that first. The braised chicken was so overcooked and flavorless it tasted like a joke. Chef, please forgive the fact that I am complaining in this forum and take my delayed criticism to heart. I should have told you privately in the restaurant but it was my first night in town after a long journey and I just wanted to chill. I hope you understand.
Outstanding food, atmosphere and service.
I highly recommend 22 Square.
Fresh ingredients, great presentation, but nothing was moist and juicy. Cool venue & good service helped the rating.
We have been on a three week long road trip on the east coast and have eaten in many many restaurants most of which were OK. But 22 Square was one of two meals we considered exceptional. Service is good, food is prepared perfectly, and the prices are equal to or lower than the mainstream restaurants in Charleston.
I had the shrimp and grits. The shrimp was well seasoned well but overcooked but I didn't bother sending back because service was extremely slow which I expected as it was Saint Patrick's Day . My best friend however had the steak and it was superb. The bread they serve was also really tasty.
Arrived to a very busy hotel lobby, where this venue is located. Arrived at the host stand and remained there ignored for about ten minutes. As we sat we observed a very drunk table being obnoxious. We sat again for several minutes the hostess apparently was our waitress as well. Waited about 15 minutes for our drinks. Apps were very good as was dinner. Dessert was dry and tasted old. Waited about 15 total minutes to complete our payment. The obnoxious table should have been ejected as they were throwing food, etc... At this price point I have expectations this place failed to meet in almost every way. We won’t be back, too many other great places to go.
We just had appetizers : fried green tomatoes and Brussel sprouts. Both were unusually prepared and very good. The bread was in the Amish tradition and served with Vermont butter. It’s worth going for the bread alone.
Food and service was great, but they were short staffed tonight
Attentive service. Quinoa salad was very good as was Pink Lady cocktail.
I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The meal we had was exceptional. The attention to detail by the chef was not worthy. The warm bread with Vermont butter was delicious. We ordered bartender choice cocktail which included spirt of our choice and a citrus theme. Our meal was delivered to our table by waitstaff and the chef. Excellent service and atmosphere. This restaurant is located in a hotel.....if you can find it you won't be disappointed.
Dinner was amazing!! From the fresh baked bread made in house to appetizer and entree’s. Tremendous service, we were running a little behind for a tour(Genteel & Bard ghost tour recommended) later on in the evening and let our server know we were in sort of a hurry. We were pleasantly surprised with how quickly our food came out and everything was so perfectly prepared. Excellent service and wonderful southern dining experience
The sugared bacon is to die for!
Fabulous food, friendly attentive wait staff and nice quiet dining where you could talk and be heard
Don't pass this up! And don't let the fact that this is a dining room of a hotel restaurant scare you off, it was some of the best food we've had on this trip. Huge portions, but so good you will finish it anyway. We waddled home very happy.
Excellent ambiance; great food value.
This is our third of fourth time at 22 Square, and it never disappoints! The food is always cooked to perfection and the flavors are mouth watering. On this occasion, I ordered the short rib, and one of the cooks came out himself to let me know that he was not satisfied with the quality of the meat, and asked whether I wanted to change my order. I ordered the fish, which was amazing, but they still only charged me for the meat dish, which was cheaper. This speaks to the attention they give to ensuring that every dish is cooked perfectly. The homemade bread is amazing, and the vegetables are always fresh. I will always come to 22 Square when visiting Savannah.
this was a lovely restaurant with good food, a great bartender, and good value. i had a good
time. the food was beautifully presented and the portions were ample.
Bonnie was very sweet and a great server. Thank you for seating us so close to closing time!
We had a great Valentine's Day dinner, with terrific service and outstanding food. Thank you.
Great food and exceptional service.
Food was very good but the shrimp & grits a couple people ordered was mostly grits (5 shrimp) and there were just 5-6 gnocchi in that entree a person ordered... for an entree & price they weren’t sufficient. By comparison the pork and filet plates were huge and delicious. Very noisy though and atmosphere too casual (hotel lobby) for the type of food and price... our party of 7 tab was just under $400.
What a fantastic evening! Our waitress Bonnie knew the food and cocktail menu so well. She was so fun and provided such great service. Our food was delicious! The shrimp and grits and Brussels sprouts were out of this world!
The food was innovative and great. We spent 1.5 hours dining. There was no rush. Very pleasant experience.
Went in the middle of restaurant week, and everything included the service was excellent! We were surprised that the portions were huge, in fact we took some home! We had a total of six different items, and they were all delicious. My husband loved the Quinoa salad, and the shrimp and grits were cooked perfectly, with a fluffy texture that was a pleasant surprise. Also, I had a Pink Lady, which was reasonably priced for a cocktail, and it was one of my favorite cocktails ever. I would definitely go back here again!
Very pleasant waitress. Great food and service. Very intimate setting for a quiet date night . Will definitely return.
We had a group of 8 and the restaurant had another 12 or so people in. It took 30 min to order our food and an other hour in addition to get our food. 45 minutes after we ordered, we were told they had no burgers so it was obvious they hadn’t started cooking yet. The restaurant was not busy. It was not a good experience.
Went to 22 Square for restaurant week. The food was fresh with a southern twist. The wine was fantastic and the ambiance quiet and easy for conversation
I was underwhelmed by 22 Square Restaurant. There were very few food options (maybe 5 entrees), and while the steak I had was good, I was expecting more. That's probably my fault for not looking over the menu before making the reservation. The ambiance was ok, but when the restaurant area isn't open, don't plan to go for food. We sat at a high top table in very small uncomfortable chairs. This place would be better for after dinner (or before) drinks.
This restaurant was so elegant and classy, yet vibrant and fun at the same time! They had THE BEST music (old school hip hop) but in a classy way... does that make sense? It was like soft background music in a classy setting but not stuffy or snooty at all. And the food was miraculous. Everything we ate and drank was great! Highly recommend it for a romantic night out or a fun dinner out with friends.
It was New Year’s Eve and no special menu just like any night and it wasn’t that good. Everywhere we ate in savannah was better. Location was good overlooking the park and central market.
The food was delicious and cooked to perfection! We went for new years eve dinner and the noise level was surprisingly low. Highly enjoyable experience.
Very impressive. Our waiter, Emma, was super attentive. Food was served quickly and surpassed our expectations. Will visit again soon.
Excellent experience. Great service and delicious food.
First, the good:
The Maximilian Affair cocktail was terrific. Kudos to the bartender! Also, their honey white bread was warm and tasty
Now, the not so good:
-Ordered the Brussels Sprouts, but I was told that they didn’t have the roasted apples that came with it (this should’ve been a sign of the rest of dinner). We ordered it anyway and wasn’t all that bad.
-The Pimento Deviled Eggs were too rich and heavy for my taste. Was a chore to eat them.
-Ordered the Braised Short Ribs. Server came back and told me they wouldn’t be ready for two hours (at 6:45pm). I was slightly disappointed.
-I then tried to order the Shrimp and Grits. Server told me they didn’t have any available (“they were 86’d” were her words) Extremely disappointed at this point.
-Decided to go with one of the specials of the night, Spinach and Artichoke Risotto. The dish was extremely bland and underwhelming. Seemed like they either forgot to season or it was drastically under-seasoned. Also, I’m not sure if they used arborio rice. It seemed like a standard long grain rice. It was sent back.
-My other guest had the blackened grouper with potatos. Not horrible, but, again, under seasoned. We ended up sharing that.
I will say, my server and the restaurant director were very apologetic and tried to make up for the experience. They comped the majority of what was ordered. I appreciate that they took it upon themselves to do that. I do feel bad for them that the kitchen was so ill prepared, though. It was a bad reflection on the restaurant as a whole.
I’d hope to believe that my experience is a complete anomaly and that their product, as a whole, is truly better than what was presented.
Came with family for a post-Christmas dinner on Dec 26. They were out of a few items on the menu because of not being able to get deliveries on Christmas but it wasn’t a big deal. The Malbec on the menu was very nice. We enjoyed all of our dishes and they even comp’d dessert for us when we told them we had come for the hunters stew which they were out of. Great evening dining. Great service. Will definitely be back!
