    Second time at Alligator Soul and it was better than the first. Ambiance = Excellent Appetizer (Crawfish Ravioli) = Excellent Main Course (Antelope) = Excellent Dessert (Banana Cheesecake & Chocolate Mousse) = Excellent Wine (Double Diamond Cabernet) = Superb Service: (Charly was our server) = Superb. Alligator Soul does not fail to disappoint. We don't eat out often but when we do we like to eat at high end restaurants. So far, Alligator Soul and another high-end restaurant are our favorites. We will definitely be back in the future.

    This restaurant was amazing! Don’t even think twice about coming. Do not let the outside staircase down to the lower level of the building scare you off. You will be greeted by the most beautiful ambience. Dark woods and the most gorgeous brick arches. The service was amazing and the food was outstanding. Loved the alligator bite appetizer. My husband had the fish and loved it. I had the wild board pot pie and is something I still dream about. Amazing!! Didn’t think it could get better but we had the banana cheesecake and were not disappointed. This was truly an amazing experience from start to finish and that seems to be a rare find these days. If you’re a foodie check this place out!!

    What a nice place! Surprised upon arrival. From the street it looks like a small restaurant. Then you see stairs descending below. Doors open to a room full of ambiance and chatter in full bloom. Our table was situated in a room with maybe 5 others. The servers were immediately attentive. Food selections were amble and described. It was a difficult choice, but we chose Gumbo. Our beers came quickly, as did warm bread and herb butter. Bread was delicious! We shared a fresh strawberry salad. Gumbo was so tasty with frog legs, sausage, and alligator topped with fried green tomatoes. Yum! It was such a nice evening in a Savannah gem. Glad Alligator Soul was recommended to us!

    Wow …. across the board. It really needs its first star. Server Sarah was a gem, from start to finish, she actually seemed to try to be not just receptive, but anticipatory. Once it was clear we were going to split a number of courses, the share plates and appropriate cutlery just appeared. Menu seemed a little abbreviated, and if one enjoys “wild” or game, then this place will delight. We split four courses: shrimp and grits, a “carrot marrow”(delicious) with shrimp side, venison with an added vegetable side, banana cheesecake (amazing), and a raspberry sherbet. We each had a different red wine blend, and a sauterne to seal it all off. The atmosphere is as engaging as the staff …. the restaurant is essentially “underground” with some nooks and crannies for a little more ambiance. If we lived here, we’d be regulars.

    I had ordered the duck entree and asked if I could change the bread pudding side dish that came with my entree to a vegetable. The waitress told me what I could have and I ordered broccoli. Upon receiving my entree, there was one single piece of broccoli on my plate. To make matters worse, it was cold and the rest of my entree was not even warm. We received the check when we were ready to leave and noticed we were charged $5.00 for the single piece of broccoli! The waitress never said there would be a charge to change to a vegetable. Not sure I’d go here again. The duck was good but nothing exceptional.

We love oysters so my husband and I tried one each of the remaining oysters they had, all were YUM!! We didn’t stay for dinner

    Reservation at 5p. Arrived at 4:55p. Told couldn’t come in from the cold. Wait! Brrrr. Portion/price ratio disappointing. Lots of grits-few shrimp. One slice bread per diner offered. Husk and Cotton and Rye are more/better for price.

    Born and raised in Savannah, never been but was worthwhile. The frog legs were incredible, highlight of the night. We also ordered the gumbo which was loaded with shrimp, frog legs, sausage, and fried green tomatoes. For the entree, I ordered the Antelope and it was extremely tender and cooked to perfection. In total, we order 5 items and 2 cocktails for a reasonable price considering the friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. 10/10 will be back.

    Beef and chicken have been removed from the menu, so has the wedge salad. The venison and kangaroo were delicious but the carving board has changed too much. We’ve becoming on valentines continuously for 9 years, but this is the first time we didn’t feel the price matched the value.

    We were here in October and had an incredible time! This time around, I’d say it was pretty meh. We dropped $200 for the 2 of us and both felt the quality of food and experience did not meet expectations. We both said everything was “fine”. Our waitress was lovely! I think the real problem here, was our first experience was exquisite. The GM was doing table touches, brought drinks, recommended items, and presented the duck entree. You could tell he oversaw all aspects of the restaurant. Now, I think food is being approved to go out with no one checking quality. Vegetarian special ($31) was undercooked- butternut squash was tough and hard to eat. The sea bass special ($41) had the bloodline running through it and the skin was soft and mushy. We passed on dessert. All in all, it’s missing that pop. The food doesn’t justify the price. There are too many restaurants in our great city to settle. After hyping up this restaurant to our friends for months, I’m sorry to say, we probably won’t be back after this experience.

    Cajun and creole cuisines with upscale twists. The menu was packed with exotic meats- fresh wild caught fish, frog legs, alligator, venison and more! The charcuterie plate was delightfully different, and every bite was fabulous.
