We enjoyed a wonderful dinner for our anniversary. To begin, we were greeted with a Happy Anniversary wish from the hostess, and shown promptly to our table. The Resturant had placed a small gift box with a anniversary wish as well. Our cocktails were delivered and we found them to be delicious. Needless to say, each course of our meal was exceptional, in both taste and uniqueness. The chef was very creative on pairings and complimentary flavors. Throughout the evening, our waitress was attentive and delightful to speak with. The entire staff is very professional, and is focused on making your dining experience superb.

Hard to locate due surrounding road construction. Oysters Ala Soul were tasty. Husband enjoyed the lamb entree. Smoked duck was OK but after a while somewhat too smoky. Banana beignets dessert was good, too many wonton crisps on top. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Very helpful with wine selections. Service was slow, we were told due to a large party in another room.

Fantastic restaurant. Ambiance is cozy. Food was stellar. Venison was a gorgeous dish, and the swordfish was divine. The care and expertise puts Alligator Soul to the top of its game.

Gumbo was good, and so was lamb but didn’t enjoy the shrimp and grits at all. Service was ok but not the best we experienced over the weekend. There also was a large party behind a curtain that was pretty noisy too.

It was a wonderful experience from the beginning all the the way to the end! The staff was extraordinary friendly and helpful. The scenery was gorgeous and so relaxing. Now the food... the food was AMAZING! The rosemary bread that we had was splendid and the Mushroom salad as well. The main meals were on another level. The food presentation truly showed the professionalism in the kitchen and the taste was exquisite. I'd definitely will come back for the whole experience.

I heard from a friend that this was the best place for dinner in Savannah. Made reservations three weeks in advance. Alligator Soul lives up to its reputation. Quiet sophisticated atmosphere, low light, staff very attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding and creative. The overall experience was wonderful, will go again.

We had an amazing time at Alligator Soul celebrating our engagement! Delicious, out of this world food that is unique and you can’t get anywhere else! I had their famous Ribeye and it was to die for and my boyfriend had the Nilgai Antelope, which we would definitely recommend getting! It was the specialty meat, but when we talked to one of the waitresses, they have it more often than not! This is definitely a more upscale dinner with high quality meat and seafood! 10/10 would recommend!

The server Jay was very professional and a good sense of humor. The oyster appetizer was a beautiful presentation and full of flavor. My scallops were perfectly cooked and the veggie were so delicious and with the exact flavor of Cajun cooking (my parents both Cajuns and accustomed to the spicy foods). My husband had the swordfish that was I thought mine was the perfect choice until I tried his!!! Winner winner, that swordfish was moist and filled with flavor!! I will be returning soon for my swordfish. 👍🏻👍🏻Smith’s of Atlanta

Overall an excellent experience. The ambiance was great. Jazz music played at just the right volume, you could hear it and still hear the people you're seated with. Food and service were on point. The oysters a la soul appetizer was fantastic, should have ordered a dozen instead of 6. Would definitely go back.

Located in the basement, it was a little dark for our preference. The carving board was our favorite part of the night! We did receive a sweet pecan pie tart in recognition of our special event!

Everything that we ordered was exceptional! We started with the cheese board which I thought was a little overpriced but there was a lot of food on it and some unique things so it was fine. I had the swordfish which was cooked just right and was on a bed of parmesan cheese rice with andoule sausage, some veggies, and a little marinara sauce. Very good! My husband had the holbo (?) Steak and said it was excellent. The service was excellent! I would highly recommend.

This restaurant was highly recommended by fellow foodies. We were so surprised to see that it is located in the basement, but it is designed to just amaze the senses. Alligator shows up in many different ways and the restaurant offers exotic proteins. Antelope which was as tasty and well prepared as I have ever had was the night’s special.
Staff are very well informed and very solicitous of how they manage different diners. It was a pleasure to be with them, and I highly recommend including Alligator Soul among your dining choices when in Savannah.

The duck fries were awesome the steak was ok. The lamb was ok but the veggies with it was mush. The lamb dish was disappointing. The desert was ok. My husband was expecting a better selection of wild game. They had just Venison.

Exceptional dining experience - - our waiter was incredibly informative and attentive. The gini-tini cocktail was sublime. The Little Hilbro was a fine piece of meat. Quite tasty and a lovely dining experience. Beautiful bar too.
