Blown away by the level of food and service. Everything including the dessert did not disappoint! We were in town for the long weekend and it wasn't easy getting a seat here, but I am glad that we did! Foodies will be very happy here.

Highly recommend by a friend that travels to Savannah regularly. Overall a good experience but a few issues were present. Our table was not ready when we arrived so was asked to sit in lounge and someone would be by to take our drink order. No one came by until they came to get us for our table.

We ordered apps and drinks which we fantastic. We then ordered our Main with a side of their take on oyster Rockefeller and a nice bottle of wine. The wife’s steak came out and it was cool. And they gave us our main courses but had to wait for the wine to be brought out to the table. And the oysters came out with the main course not as a second.

Again a unique and tasty restaurant and maybe it was just one of those nights. But it is the little things that separate good from great and on Saturday night Alligator Soul was good.

Alligator Soul never disappoints! You certainly pay for a nice night out but you definitely get what you pay for and more! The restaurant calls in advance of your reservation to make sure all of your dietary needs are met and know exactly who you are when you arrive. Our waitress was kind, energetic, and gave us the backstory on the restaurant while serving a tailored amuse-bouche. My wife had a lentil pasta with a fresh portabello and I had the exotic entree of antelope. The waitress even gave my wife a rose for Valentine’s Day as we were preparing to leave; you’ll never regret eating at Alligator Soul!

An early Valentines the mushroom salad is divine! My husband had the lamb and I had the scallops. Both delicious and very generous portions. I couldn’t finish the scallops. For dessert we the cobbler and the banana beignets OMG AMAZING. We consider this restaurant a repeater. A great meal with great service.

We enjoyed the alligator fritters. My partner had the filet mignon. It was properly cooked and excellent. I had a mixed selection of shrimp and grits, mussels, and gumbo. While it was all good, I wasn’t blown away by any of it. It’s a nice space but it was quite drafty that evening. Service was excellent.

Went there for a Birthday dinner. Atmosphere was warm feeling. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Server was very attentive and did not rush us as we were celebrating! Had the Boudin for starters was delicious. Hard time deciding what to get so Lamb, Shrimp and Grits and Filet were the choices everything was prepared perfectly. I would recommend this restaurant. We will be back when we come back to Savannah!!

There's nothing wrong with this place. Especially enjoyed the ambiance. But after three nights and three upscale downtown restaurants I concluded that Savannah is more of a cocktail kind of town. Friendly and fun; foodie, not so much.

The falling-off-the-bone bison chop special served with slightly crunchy purple grits really superb! Then had bourbon maple ice cream which was over-the-top fab. Yes go there. Don't be turned off by having to go downtstairs to basement level.

Excellent food as always. I was a little surprised when the runner sort of tossed the plate at me when he set it down, which flung some of the side dish onto the table, and then left without trying to clean up the spill.

First time in town, went to a place with good reviews for a nice dinner with my wife on our anniversary. The service we recieved was second to none. However, our food was simply not up to par with the cost nor the service. The cheese/meat board we ordered was the best part. My wife’s vegetarian dish tasted like it had been marinated in liquid smoke for a few days and the mushrooms had absorbed all of this flavor like tiny sponges. My steak was simply okay. The gnocchi tasted more like reheated leftover tofu than a potato. The waiter graciously replaced my wife’s dish with grits sans shrimp which while she did not enjoy either kudos to the server for doing his best to clean up the mess made by the kitchen. Overall, the idea is there—but the kitchen fell short in everything except cutting up cheese and placing it on a wood plank.

Great place to celebrate our 29th anniversary! Our server, Natalie was outstanding - very informative, efficient, and friendly. The food was delicious, my husband had the beef filet and said it melted in his mouth and he loved his bananas beignets for dessert. I lucked out with it being restaurant week, so I chose the 3-course meal. I enjoyed the shaved brussel sprouts salad for my first course, bison short-rib for second course and rounded out my meal with chocolate bread pudding. Each course was unique and truly delish! The cocktails we had prior to dinner were equally as good. We are so grateful for the friends that recommended Alligator Soul.
