Food was tasty. Service was pleasant although a bit slow. Very accommodating with special requests. The greens in my salad were not as fresh as they should have been

NYE SURPRISE
We picked this restaurant based on its OpenTable reviews and seafood menu. Looked fantastic. They had a special prix fixe four-course deal for New Year's Eve. You couldn't order from the menu. The place wasn't crowded, so I was surprised that the waiter seemed to be lost. No food check, no refill on the water. He did refill the champagne glasses. The prix fixe special was not mentioned on the OpenTable site, confirmation message, or reminder. My $129 grouper was decent, but we surely would have dined somewhere else if we had known. Lesson learned. Hopefully, the restaurant will make more of an effort to let people know in advance. The table next to us expressed similar shock.

We have been going to Christmas Day Brunch at the Westin for a few years now. And it has already been a wonderful experience until this year. The variety of foods and desserts was extremely disappointing. And not to mention the 35 minute wait for our table, that would have been more then likely 1 hour if we had not brought it to there attention. My reservation was at 1:45, we arrived at 1:42. and the maître d' said give me a minute to get your table ready. That was fine until it became 35 minutes. And they clearing knew we were waiting because I stood right there in front of them. And watched as other groups walked up and were seated. I could understand if they were busy and only one person attending to customers. But there was 4 maître d' at the desk. Then when we were escorted to our table ( a window seat that is never available) we could not believe the amount of empty tables. That's when we realized things that we used to love about this experience at the Aqua Star at Christmas time was gone. They had always made you feel so special. And not to mention the food with all there selections and the desserts were gone too. I don't believe I will be going back to the Aqua Star anytime soon if ever.

We have been going to the Aqua Star for years on Christmas Day. The quality and the quantity over the last two years has gone down dramatically while the price has gone up.
We will not be attending on Christmas next year.

We went for brunch and were seated 130-200PM. This was the earliest time we could get which was fine except we were somewhat rushed since the food was removed at 3PM. The brunch was very good and the service was excellent. Aside from feeling rushed, we were seated near the jazz trio and it was actually painfully loud. We couldn't even hold a conversation...I dont understand how management could consider placing the musicians so close to the tables...

We arrived for dinner allowing an hour and half before show. After being seated and waiting 30 minutes for drinks to arrive, we learned that the kitchen could prepare nothing more than appetizers and salads in time to make the show. Overall, it was disappointing. This trip marks the second time this experience has happened. Service is slow. Kitchen is slower. I would avoid this restaurant in the future unless you have no plans for anything other than returning to your hotel room to sleep.

There were 8 of us. Place was basically empty. We had told both hostess and server we needed to be served quickly as we were attending a function in the ballroom. The bartender seemed more concerned with talking to the one person at bar or to walk to back of restaurant. Drinks never came early. While the food was excellent it took way to long to come out. And again the place was virtually empty except for us. If you're not in a hurry the food is very good. If you're in a hurry go somewhere else.

The service was terrible. Our water glasses were never filled, our napkins and silverware were in a pile at the end of the table, the bread was never brought out, the crab bisque was cold & congieled. I ordered a Caesar salad( no croutons or cheese & had a whole drumstick in it) We brought our kids 5&7 for a “fancy” dinner after the Nutcracker, what a disappointment. However, it’s a nice location & was beautifully decorated for the holidays.

A terrible staff! Wait was 58 min for a half full restaurant. We waited at least 10 min to be seated with a reservation because the hostess was not there but instead was chatting with other servers in the back. We ordered a bottle of wine, 10 min later they came back telling us that they did not have it, so we ordered another one, hence, once again, we waited 10 min so they can tell us they do not have it. Finally when we had our wine, they did not make us taste the wine first but instead just the guy served us a glassful of wine!!! After 58 min of waiting the for the meal, the food came completely cold! You would think that at least if you are waiting 58 min for a meal to be served that the food would come fresh, right! At the end of the meal, I had almost to confront the server not to take my plate because the server did not understand/know the bon-ton rules/message from my silverware! I was shocked. This was expected to be a luxurious restaurant, but it is not! So I will never again come back here! We got 10 times better service downtown Savannah where the restaurants are not bragging to be luxurious.

The first two courses were wonderful but the dessert was awful. I ordered the creme brûlée but when it came out it was just pudding. The waitress told me the chef forgot the blowtorch! I ordered the peach pie instead and it was even worse! Like canned peaches in a dry and brittle pie crust. I was very disappointed.

Excellent. Best brunch in town. We drove from Wayne County, Jesup, GA. I loved the sushi and kids table additions to Thanksgiving brunch. Very nice. The dressing was good but I was not expecting it to be sweet (non traditional). I missed having more vegetables, the pecan pie and the shot glasses of desert. It is not Thanksgiving without pecan pie. Not crazy about the "create your own desert." I always thought the shot glasses were a nice touch; a little taste of everything and no waste.
And our server, Connie, deserves a GOLD star. She was excellent. And I must compliment the valet team. Very friendly and great service.

The Thanksgiving buffet was basic. The entrees were good, but it was all so basic, and at $75/pp too expensive for basic food. There was no traditional desserts for Thanksgiving, and even at the omelet station, no bacon for omelets. This was sub-par from my expectations and I won't go back.

Awful! We arrived at 2pm and there was slim picking for brunch. Many foods items were not labeled and sometimes there simply was nothing in the bowl (it hadn’t been refilled). I was in town for the Rock and Roll marathon and was excited to taste Savannah specialties, but there was nothing unique about the menu. Not worth $50! Brunch went until 3pm, but band packed up by 2.30pm.

Celebrated a friends birthday and it was perfect. The waiter was courteous and prompt. He even brought a slice of cake with candle and sang happy birthday that we didn’t request. The food was awesome and definitely worth the amount. We weren’t rushed and enjoyed the water views along with River Street.

I had always wanted to try Savannah’s Jazz Brunch at the Westin and it took me 3 years and my mom coming to visit, in order to finally try it out... I HAD BEEN MISSING OUT!! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was wonderful, and the scenery was beautiful. I also have to give points to the service staff. They were DELIGHTFUL! Super friendly and courteous. Trudy also gave us great advice about things to do around the area. Overall we had a WONDERFUL TIME!! We totally recommend for any ocassion.
