Private party facilities
Located in the heart of Savannah"s historic City Market, Garibaldi is housed in the 1871 Germanian Fire House. Built in classic Paladdian architecture, the building is a beautiful presence in the market area. In the fashion of the era, the firehouses were commonly community meeting places. Thus, the Germanian Society erected a Grand Ballroom on the second floor of the building. With sixteen foot ceilings, fourteen foot arched windows and vintage iron chandeliers, it is one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Savannah, seating 120 and complete with its own private bar. The main floor is a beautiful Victorian room with lavish gilt mirrors, original pressed tin ceiling, romantically illuminated with whimsical chandeliers. Garibaldi offers a variety of menus, and specializes in customizing menus to your specific needs. Gracious service and outstanding food is our highest goal and has helped us earn the Zagat Award of Distinction once again for 2011/12.

Great food, service and ambiance (upper level), lower level had bar and is louder but also lovely. Dinner was pricy-paying for historic downtown location. A nice date spot,

The food was okay, but not great. I had the scallops, which while not overcooked, tasted scorched. The accompanying risotto seemed like an afterthought, somewhat dry with very little discernible cheese, although there was ample ham throughout. Overall, not a bad experience but not a restaurant I'd go out of my way to patronize again.

I routinely eat at Garibaldi's. I use it for entertaining customers and co-workers for my business as well as for Valentine's or Anniversary dinners with my lovely wife. The service is always so professional and courteous, the food is outstanding, and there is a great selection of wine/cocktails. The Almond Berry dessert is fantastic and pairs well with their Brazilian cappuccino.

Very impressed with the appetizers and the veal chop was very good as well. Very good selection of wines by the glass and that’s important to us for we usually get food throughout the meal that needs different types of wines - yeah, we’re THAT way. A little loud but not uncomfortably so. Glad to have rediscovered Garibaldi’s and we’ll be back on our return to Savannah.

Our food was served cold and our waiter never came back to check on us. We were not served bread as other tables were. In addition, it gets tiresome to have waiters repeatedly “push” their “ favorites” which coincidentally are the most expensive items on the menu.

Very disappointing meal! Having dined at Garibaldi in Charleston over the years I expected a similar positive experience, but the veal was tough as leather, and the seafood had little or no flavor.

Garibaldi's is our absolute favorite restaurant in Savannah. We visit a couple of times a year from Birmingham, AL. I simply can't wait for the first night's dinner ... which is always scored flounder with apricot sauce. I have traveled the word and will confidently say this my dream dish. You MUST dine at Garibaldi's if you are in Savannah.

Every time I visit Savannah I make sure to stop in for dinner, the food and service is fantastic!We were a party of four for dinner and started by ordering and sharing three appetizers, all of which were delicious (the stuffed mushrooms were amazing). All of our meals were hot, tasted delicious and high quality (the linguine with clams was especially yummy)!

We went here for our Anniversary and it was fantastic! The service was wonderful and the food was outstanding. We got a bowl of their crab and corn chowder and the meatball sliders for an appetizer and then shared the red snapper dinner special they offered. It was all fantastic! Would definitely recommend for a special occasion or nice date night.

I made my reservation over a week before the event. I requested Sparkling Muscato and 7 yellow roses and even gave a $60 budget. The DAY OF the dinner, I received a phone call stating "we don't have that wine and we don't do roses", no suggestions, no other wines, no other way to have flowers delivered....just NO.
At the meal for my wife's 70th Birthday, which they knew, there was no birthday drink, desert or even mention. So much for the special occasion. It seems they are too busy to bother with any special requests.
We will possibly go back; they were accommodating for a delay in my timing (traffic) and the food was excellent.

It was my daughters 15th birthday and her favorite food is Italian. We chose your spot to celebrate. The calamari was bland and too chewy(overcooked), and everyone's meal was simply ok. For the price point, I would have expected more. There was no offer of an ice cream or anything for her birthday so we ordered a dessert. $1.50 for every drink for the kids is a little over the top. 4 people and a bill of almost $300.

Overall the only thing we really liked was the service- it was very good.

Loved the decor, dark wood, tin ceiling, big chandeliers... Fried green tomatoes were not great, but the lasagna was very good, although not enough ricotta. Cocktails were not made well. Husband enjoyed his food and overall it was a good experience and great ambiance.

This restaurant came highly recommended in several travel books and by several locals. It was obviously very popular with locals as it was packed on a Thursday night at 8:00 PM. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. The drinks were good as were our appetizers. Our disappointment came with the main course special, which was supposed to be a fresh red snapper dish. It didn't have any taste and had the consistency of shoe leather. We advised the waiter, who quickly apologized and took the dish away to the manager. The manager came over to apologize and tell us there would be no charge for the dish. We were surprised to learn from him that he had problems with the dish within the previous couple of weeks! Time to connect the dots!

Great service, delicious food and very strong drinks. However, the restaurant started closing at 9.45pm putting away tables and chairs while there were still people dining which made me feel rushed and it creates noise.

I looked up this restaurant on Open Table & chose it based on the menu & photos of the restaurant, white table cloths, etc. We were seated at a nice table, great waiter, had a lovely meal & bottle of wine ($220+). The website said “smart casual”. What spoiled it for us, but maybe wouldn’t for you, was a table of four knuckleheads all wearing ball caps throughout dinner. I could have gone to Wendy’s for the same dining experience! The manager seemed less than interested in our comments regarding the “dress code”. Won’t go back!
