I’m a fine dining manager and we are both foodies that travel the world. This was by far the greatest meal we’ve ever had. It beat it Berns and our favorite, Cena. Worth every Penny and please try the candied gator.

Service was very slow and out of sequence. The restaurant also did not note food preferences — the seafood entree came with sausage not noted in the description.

Food as extraordinary. Sat at a table for 2 by the bar. It was very noisy. I heard every word the bar tender said. The ambience was poor. I felt like the table was just added. We also froze every time someone came in or out if the restaurant. The waiter didn’t tell us about a special with broccolini. I know there was one because we heard the bar tender tell other customers the special at least 3 times. Oh, and I saw a table for 2 in one of the other rooms that wasn’t occupied during our entire dinner.

Fabulous from the moment we walked in! From the gracious (masked) staff to the attentive waiter Kenon, and all the way through the last bite of a most outrageous dessert! I didn’t think that alligator would be so tasty, but we had the sampler of tempura, candied and andouille and it was terrific. The oysters where also amazing and must not be missed. Main dishes (including antelope!) were impeccably prepared and presented, drinks were delicious. I’d say this should be on anyone’s list for a restaurant in Savannah- anyone who appreciates food!

Scallops and fish were delicious. Homemade blue cheese dressing was the best I’ve ever had. We had a salad with candied smoked alligator on the wedge salad it was excellent. Kenon was a fantastic waiter.

The food was outstanding The place is wonderful. My only complaint is that was too much time between courses, especially dessert. I don't know if this a service problem or a kitchen problem but it should be looked into because it could really affect your turns on a business night. Overall though I will be back despite the slowness. I recommend to anyone who is looking at this restaurant to go as the food overcomes everything else.

I’d been excited to try this place, so I decided to have dinner here on my birthday. Reservations are hard to come by, so I made them almost a month in advance. My husband and I arrived and were promptly seated. Our server was courteous, attentive and well acquainted with the menu. She was able to answer all of our questions and made some great suggestions. We tried the Oysters a la Soul, The Little Hilbo and their Swordfish Special. Everything was delicious!

Absolutely wonderful. Must dine here when in Savannah. Everything about Alligator Soul makes a remarkable dinner experience. The staff is well trained and friendly. Food was spectacular, Daily catch of Swordfish was perfectly cooked and matched well with a house version of red sauce and rice. The antelope yes antelope was terrific and matched well with white bean and Brussels sprout melody. This was just a marvelous dining experience from beginning to end.

Food is really exceptional. We had the mushroom salad, which might have been our favorite part. Swordfish was the special. I had to try it because I’d never had it before. I was worried it would be tough or chewy and it was far from it. Super tender and beautifully seared. My wife had the scallops and she loved it. I had told them it was our anniversary and that we are pescatarian and our waitress did a fabulous job at taking care of us and making us feel special. Menu is definitely meat centric, but the chef can accommodate special requests. This was really a unique dining experience. If you’re adventurous with your food, you will not be disappointed.
