Fantastic dinner from beginning to end. The food was beyond my expectations, simply amazing!! Our server, whose name I cannot remember (he had a beautiful Polish accent) was delightful, kind, and accommodating to our less than easy group. I truly cannot say enough about his graciousness!! I cannot wait to return for a romantic meal with just my husband! 5 words sum it up: DO NOT MISS THIS EXPERIENCE!!

I’ve been here multiple times, each time the service has weakened. The food is always up to scale, and prepared beautifully.

We had the Little Hilbo Ribeye which was anything but little. The food was fantastic and ambience and service great as well. This place did not disappoint.

The food was pretty good and the service was really nice. The ambiance was off for a place that asks you to remove your hat and ends with a $135 bill for two. It was actually a little loud. It may not usually be like that but we didnt have anything to go off of.

The food was outstanding as usual. The little hilbo never lets you down - super yummy and cooked just right. We tried the lamb this time and it was flavorful as well. The banana beignets were even better than before as they are now dusted with cinnamon after frying.

Alligator Soul was sold to us as a very unique menu with lots of exotic options. Their “exotic” entree was a bison steak, so we didn’t bother. The alligator tempura and peach salad we had for appetizers were the highlight of the meal, it went downhill from there. We ended up getting the scallops and the ribeye (the most popular dish on the menu). I knew we were in trouble when the steak arrived doused in sauce. It was nothing special. We got the flourless chocolate cake for dessert that tasted store-bought. Would not recommend and definitely will not return.

The service was spectacular! The special of Bison rib was cooked to perfection and was delicious! Excellent wine list but the glass or bottle. Highly recommend especially if you only have one night in Savannah

On vacation with my elderly mother. The staff was excellent from the hostess to the wait staff. The food was great to say the least. The service was exceptional. I can not recommend highly enough. I will definitely return if and when I’m n Savannah again.

The food could have been better. The charcuterie was absolutely the worst I’ve ever had. That was sad. The lamb and the filet was incredible. The special tonight was not great at all. Our server unfortunately was not very personable and messed up our check so bad that we were charged five different times. Good thing we had enough to cover all those charges because it was nearly a thousand dollars after all the charges.

Alligator Soul has some of the most innovative food I've had in years. The oyster appetizer is in the top ten dishes of all time! The white chocolate mousse was the most interesting preparation of it's kind, ever. The only place I'd find room for improvement is the bar. Limited rhum selection, lackluster cocktails. Talk to the chef in da back, bartender! I can't wait to go back!

We were seated right away. Then we sat and waited for over 20 minutes. The only person that came by our table was the guy filling waters. We were not acknowledged by any other staff. Meanwhile, people all around us were seated after us and were waited on immediately with drink orders, etc. I’m sure it was an oversight, such as no staff had been assigned to our table. So we ended up getting up and leaving since we could not get service. We politely told the hostess on our way out and she was very apologetic about it and seemed sincere. We were very surprised by this experience because we had eaten there before and had excellent service. I mean really superb. So this experience last night seemed very out of character.

I was happy they are taking Covid serious. They took temperatures at door and required mask unless at your table. All employees had mask on. Dinners were delicious! The only thing that was missing for me was the stereo needed to be playing jazz music or something. Highly recommend this place and I will be going back!

I’m not a fan of some of their exotic specials so I selected a mushroom salad and grouper. These more common dishes were tasteful yet a bit unique. The dark basement atmosphere was still pleasant. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. All the tables in our area were full and relatively close together. It wasn’t conducive to a private or intimate conversation.
