My husband and I made reservations for our 6th anniversary. The entire staff was extremely friendly. The food was absolutely divine! Hat's off to the chef! The Alligator Fritter was amazing for an appetizer! Our favorite part of our meal was definitely the mussels, the broth was so delicious, warm, and savory! We couldn't help but to dip the light and airy rosemary bread into the broth and eat up! Great experience, highly recommended!

We loved Alligator Soul! From the maitre’d to the bartender to our server we were treated exceptionally well. I had the elk, which I had never tried before. It was excellent! My wife had the scallops, which also were great. The servings were large, so no room for dessert. We will definitely return the next time we are in Savannah!

Overall a very nice restaurant. Service and food was excellent. The mussels and scallops were great. Mixed berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream and a glass of beerenauslese was a great desert. Only reason for fours stars vs five was they were a bit slow in bringing out each course.

The food took a long time ... as a chef it seemed that they lost the order and tried to rush the food .. the shrimp was raw and the scallops was over seasoned and rubbery very disappointing

Food was served in small portions , under flavored and is simply overpriced. After eating I was still hungry , so my wife and I went elsewhere to pick up some more food. Two drinks and two entrees and one appetizer with no dessert after tip was $150.00 . The appetizer was the only thing that was tasty and that was thirty dollars for 12 oysters. Many other nice restaurants in Savannah worth visiting, so I would not be going back to Alligator Soul not would I recommend them.

Checked on the internet for top 10 restaurants in Savannah Historic Dist. Was staying there for our 32 anniversary. Choose this place for one evening dinner. Called them to make Reservations and let them know it was for an anniversary, and they went beyond my expectations for our dining. Next time I'm in Savannah I will eat there even if its not a special occasion.

I really enjoyed my experience at Alligator Soul. The lamb was perfect. My only issue is that my husband is a picky eater, and for him the menu was very limited. The chef did, however, make him a custom meal.

if you're looking for a fancy upscale place to eat this is it. It is pricey but absolutely worth it for the incredible food. All of the servers are incredibly attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I highly recommend it for a fancy date night out or special occasion. They have a good enough variety that I feel anyone could find a dish they love.

Appetizers ordered arrived cold but on mentioning the manager came and apologized and took care of it. So this restaurant deserves to be rated 4*s

Horrible experience for a late Valentine's day dinner with my significant other. Food was phenomenal but we're asked to leave by the server for no reason without a managers presence before we could order dessert. The only thing I could think of was maybe they overbooked and needed an extra table.

We were visiting Savannah from Washington DC and selected this restaurant based on a recommendation from the bed-and-breakfast in which we were staying. The food was extraordinary, the service was perfect and the space was exceptional given that it is underground. The food here competes with plenty of more expensive big city dining options.

Was there for Valentines Day. Our server Ryan was great, his description of everything was impeccable and made us want it all. Food was wonderful all the way around. Thoroughly enjoyed everything we had and thought the rose given to us at the end of the meal was a very nice touch. A very nice overall eating experience.
