We were a little nervous as we descended the stairs to Alligator Soul. But the door opens to a sophisticated gathering and dining room. The almost intimate space sets the stage for a creative and tasty menu. We opted for Striped bass, the catch of the day. Perfectly cooked en papioute, so nicely moist. Cous cous provided an excellent accompaniment.
Creme Bourle finished an excellent dining experience.

Alligator Soul was one of the most recommended restaurants in Savannah. We ate there and found the food to be average and overpriced. The mussels were the high point. The $20 Alligator ball appetizer (which should be a specialty given the name) included inly 3 small balls. The $35 Scallop dish had 3 medium scallops. The fish special - also $35 - included a 6 oz bass filet and was not special in any way. I would suggest that there are better restaurants in the area. . . . . . . .with better food and a better value for the money.

I had alligator fritters as an appetizer and Antelope as my main dish. Both were delicious. My wife called it one of the best meals she’s ever had. There are a lot of good restaurants in Savannah, but this is #1 on our list of must visits.

Wonderful food, wine and service. We loved the roasted mushroom salad and “special” antelope entree. Our waiter was very thorough and attentive. It was busy and a bit loud with some large groups but it was also a Fri night in Savannah so not too unexpected.

Foremost, the food at alligator soul was incredible. Truly a flavorful roller coaster. The little hilbo steak, I would highly recommend. Their exotic meat of the day, the antelope, was also delicious. Our server was very knowledgeable, but seemed understandably busy. The ambiance was nice and welcoming, but not extraordinary. We'll definitely return.

My husband and I went there for our 35th wedding anniversary. The restaurant was elegant but not at all stuffy. The atmosphere was modern yet cozy and we were greeted immediately and shown to a cozy spot with couches to wait for our table-which was ready very quickly. The waiters and staff were very friendly and VERY attentive without being intrusive--a perfect combination. When we got to our table, there was a small gift box with a congratulatory message and two mini pastries for us. A lovely and thoughtful touch! The food was fabulous and our waiter, Matthew was awesome! It was such a pleasant experience all the way around and my only regret is that it is in Savannah and we live in NJ!

We asked for a quiet table, and were taken to one. 20 minutes later, a large bachelorette party of about 14 showed up and were seated across from us, and we couldn't hear anything but them and the waiter's loud voice after that. The food was great, the prices were decent, but the evening was taken over by the loud group of ladies and the waiter acting as an M.C. for them. Too bad, because we could have had a better experience here.

A wonderful speakeasy setting in downtown Savannah. Grilled oysters were very good. Also liked the gumbo. Shrimp and grits was also good, though grits had cheese in them. Some folks at our table do not like cheese in the grits. So please be aware of you are picky about your grits. Service was great. Nice art on display. Excellent cocktails.

Fantastic! A must go! The oysters are special and a must to order. We also had the alligator fritters, which also were excellent. For entrees, my wife had the gumbo, daughter the mussels, son had the bacon wrapped filet, and I had the scallops. Everyone enjoyed their choice as each had excellent flavors. Throw in superb ambience and excellent service and we had a 5 star night. Thanks to Misha, who helped us with our choices and was an excellent host.

Great food! We really enjoyed our dinner at Alligator Soul. We had the fish special, bacon-wrapped filet and the exotic special which was Red Deer that night. Service is top notch - our waitress was really great as were all the staff we encountered and the owner/manager even came around to speak to guests at all the tables. Great drink offerings with a generous wine selection and unique cocktails. Don't miss dessert, we had the cobbler and banana beignets - YUM!! Would highly recommend this for a nice meal out in Savannah.
