Savona Ratings and Reviews
Although we are long time fans of Savona, we haven't been there since their renovation. It is disappointing to see them move toward a more casual environment and a lower scale menu, but i guess they are doing the right thing to change with the times. I miss the table cloths and the table side finishing of the dover sole. I also was hoping they would take a little more time with us but perhaps they had another reservation behind us. The crudo apps were great and the dover sole is still wonderful and always available even though it is never on the menu. The sommelier was helpful in recommending a wine to go with the sole. It was even lower cost than the two i told her i was considering. No attempt to run up the bill on her part. We will be back to try some of the other offerings of Savona.
I always swore I wouldn't eat here. I'm a bit of an "anti snob." I knew that Savona was a little expensive and I'm just really a simple burger kinda guy; although I can afford to eat here. I made the reservation here because I knew she would love it. And for what it's worth, it isn't really that expensive. And it isn't snooty like I thought it was (before ever having been here). Perhaps, I shouldn't form opinions based on outward appearance and hearsay.
Well, it really is a special place. The food was superb. Every aspect of the meal was great. The service was spot on. They were just the right amount of attentive... not too much; not too little. Savona was excellent in every way. Even the valet guy was nice and polite. There is nothing negative to say, only positive. Well done!
Food was outstanding as usual and the service was great. Only issue we had was that since they redecorated the interior, the seating was a bit cramped. We sat by the windows and the tables are very small and too close together.
This was our first time to Savona and certainly will not be our last. Unbelievable meal with impeccable service from the moment we walked in until the moment we left. I have already raved about it to friends. Everything was prefect!
Great food. Horrible service. Arrived at 7 pm on a Thursday. Drinks took 45 minutes - and three inquiries - to arrive. Well done filet served bloody rare. Everything was slow. Dinner lasted almost three hours. Wait staff uninformed and poorly trained. Had a fabulous experience previously, so we may try again.
Savona has gained a reputation for great food and an impressive wine list. The craft beer selection is skimpy and cocktails are well executed when done by a seasoned bartender. Upstair's dining is bad. Service is substandard. Cocktails were botched and the server was slow in service and missed important details. I will never done upstairs again.
Was busy on a Saturday night, but took us on time. Service was excellent, atmosphere is great for a date, special occasion, or an evening out with a few friends.
The menu offers something for everyone, from and a wide range of prices. However, in my opinion, most dishes, especially the full-size meat and fish entrees, are overpriced. The food is good, but not worth what they're charging. Don't trust the $30 and under rating on Open Table. We had two appetizers, two medium-priced entrees ($25-$30 range), two glasses of wine, and one dessert, and our check, before tip, was about $150.
On the other hand, you could sit at the bar and have a pizza and drinks and probably spend $50-$60.
Overall I'd recommend Savona, especially for a special occasion or romantic evening out. If the prices aren't an issue for you, it's a nice setting with good food. You won't be disappointed.
Believe the reviews about Savona under new leadership. The service was the WORST. We had to ask to order drinks, which took 25 minutes in a restaurant that wasn't full because it looked like only one bartender was serving the entire restaurant. It was (no exaggeration) 2 hours and 5 minutes from when we ordered our entrees until when they were delivered. They were absolutely delicious and something we would return for if the service wasn't the most unacceptably slow service I've ever experienced. Unless you have infinite patience and hours to spare, this isn't the place to go.
Worst restaurant experience ever.
Clueless maitre di/general manager originally put our table of 4 which drove 40 minutes to get there in the bar facing the kitchen. After saying it was unacceptable he moved us into the dining room. After sitting for 10 minutes he had the audacity to ask us to move because a table of "investors"that had been sitting in the bar WANTED OUR TABLE! We were then moved to a table facing the busing station. Horrible. Been going there for 20 years. Never again.
Savona is a great option for upscale dining in the area. The food is consistently good, portions are good size, and there is enough choices on the menu. The service is always good too. If I want a pleasant dinner without kids it is one of the places I consider.
We love this place!!! We have lived in this area for 3 years but only just discovered Savona. I cannot say enough good things about it. The service is top notch; the servers are friendly and professional. The food is creative, tasty, and well presented. The prices are quite reasonable. The desserts are fabulous. This place is a hidden gem. It is quite quaint.
Savona is a wonderful restaurant offering a great menu and creative specials as well as a wonderful wine list. We have had many delicious meals there and stop in regularly for an unplanned dinner or we invite friends and make reservations for a group. The pizza Marco Castro is light and delicious, the pastas are wonderful, and the fish and meats are beautifully prepared and presented. The maitre'd, wait staff and sommelier are friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoy dining at Savona and recommend it for a quick night out or for any special and memorable occasion.
This was our first visit after their re-do last August. We have always enjoyed the food and service, but just hadn't gotten around to returning for several months. In any case, the restaurant appears more casual throughout, which is a fine thing. The menu is a combination of the old Bistro menu and the fine dining one. They still have some outstanding entree selections as well as pasta and pizza and small plates. The dover sole and tuna were each outstanding dinner selections. The pasta special appetizer was a bit small for sharing, but was excellent and delicate and tasty. Wine choices are many, and we each had 2 glasses. Service was top flight, but we were there early and on a Monday.
It's still not a cheap date, but a good date.
Service was very slow. Took way too long to get our food. The brick chicken was dry. Couldn't even finish it. Wine I ordered was not available but was very nicely substituted with an equivalent if not better wine by the sommelier. I love this place and despite my issues I'll continue to go there and recommend it.
Horrible experience on the occasion of two birthdays. Noise level was excruciating, blaming other diner's disregard, but also staff loudly socializing and hanging out at two tables nearby. Requested to be moved and were told we could, but then left till half-way through. Savona recently underwent re-vamping. What was a great upscale neighborhood restaurant, has greatly deteriorated. The food itself was disappointingly uninspired.
Visited Savona as a party of four for my husband's birthday on a Sunday night. Of the four of us, only my husband had eaten here previously. The restaurant atmosphere is nice and I love the chairs in the dining room. Food was fantastic. Service, however, was not. Our server didn't smile once, and almost seemed annoyed when she came to take our order. She misheard my husband when ordering his appetizer, so the wrong dish was served. Rather than apologize, she came off as rude and borderline accusatory. My husband and I have both worked in restaurants and are big on customer service. The food was so good that we'll be back. Unfortunately we left feeling like we'd rather sit at the bar next time than have another experience like we had in the dining room.
Looking forward to dining here. We had been to a wonderful party downstairs years ago. The food was good and the presentation wonderful. We had a table away from the noise near the large windows. The room was very drafty and the heat kept going on and off.
The service was really terrible - some French guy who kept disappearing. He was not attentive.
