Garibaldi - Savannah
We ordered 2 appetizers for our table, the shrimp risotto and the caprese salad. The risotto was delicious... the caprese salad was mediocre at best. For our entree we had lasagna (was ok) and the veal piccata (was very tough and was more of a Marsala sauce than lemony picatta)
Being a restaurant owner I know that pork is sometimes used as a substitute for veal... this may have been the case. Overall it was a nice dinner.
I ate here a couple years ago and it was good so thought I'd go again for my husband's birthday. Greeter mentioned his birthday and that was it. Assaulted at the door by the rowdy wedding reception noise upstairs and the drunk business men eating. Ordered 3 different wines before I had to settle on a lesser vintage. They kept bringing '17 and trying to pass it off for the '13 I ordered- no adjustment in price. This happened twice until I finally gave up and ordered a domestic blend. French soup tasted like canned broth with provolone cheese on top. Veal parmesan was bland. Not going back.
Food was amazing and service was even better. Celebrated 46 wedding anniversary there.
Great food and ambience.
Upstairs seating has a much better ambiance than downstairs (unless you like dark) all 4 of us ordered different meals and all 4 of us thought food was just average.
Terrible experience. Extremely slow service, cold food, EXTREMELY disappointing
LOVED this place! I came for the night of my 21st birthday to celebrate and WOW. No one made me aware that to get a reservation at The Olde Pink House, you'd have to do it a week in advance. Although, I stumbled upon this place that was supposedly second to it and I'm so glad I did. We had an amazing time here. Making reservations were smooth, upon arrival we were seated with the best view by the big bright windows. The waitress was so kind and the manager continued to check in with us, beyond amazing service. A little birdy told us that Gerbaldi's was for the locals while The Olde Pink House was for the tourists and I couldn't agree more. Food didn't take long at all and presentation and taste were DIVINE. Save yourself the high hopes of tourist location and dine HERE.
Arnold was our waiter and MAN! He was amazing. He was so friendly and welcoming . I really felt at home while I was served by him. I laughed so much, he’s a very down to earth guy. The host Alexis was so sweet and mannerful. I’m decently coming back.
On vacation and ate at the olde pink house twice, once upstairs and at Planters Tavern in the cellar and loved it. Was on a tour of Savannah and was told Garibaldi’s
was owned by the same owners as pink house so we made reservations and it was fabulous!!! The host was charming and brought us upstairs to a table by the window and our server was fantastic! I’m not sure but I think his name was Jeremy, he recommended the special which was a Snapper with Madagascar sauce , it was so delicious. We thoroughly enjoy dining at these two restaurants !!! Wish you were in The Villages Florida!!!
We went to Garibaldi for our anniversary dinner and it was absolutely wonderful! The service was perfect and the food was delicious, I would highly recommend!
Amazing food. Started with the crab stuffed mushrooms and got some amazing entrees. Anything with lobster is to die for and the specials as well. Bobby was such an amazing server from start to finish. Love this place and would visit again. I’ll eat anything on the menu that Bobby recommends 🙌🏾
Our waitress was the sweetest! The people sitting around us were so friendly. The food was extraordinary!
The restaurant decor strikes you first...very classically elegant. Service was great, very attentive. Food was outstanding - our party of 4 ate every bite: Baramundi seabass, scallops, seafood pasta, then on to share desserts: creme brulee, cheesecake and pecan pie. Fantastic. The restaurant is in the City Market area - an area with lively night life. The only downside was a neighboring table with a large party that loudly celebrated a surprise birthday for one in the group.
By far my favorite restaurant in Savannah and possibly the entire East Coast!
Celebrated my anniversary here , the food was outstanding, i will say outstanding again. The table was ready right on time and the waitor was awesome. The only drawback was after requesting a corona, i was told the bar was not stocked with corona, the waitor took it upon himself to go to the liquor store down the street and buy me a 6 pack. awesome
Nice place with consistent good quality and awesome service
We loved the authentic decor and the overall ambience. The service was impeccable. The steak Diane is delicious. The Garibaldi salad is succulent and their special chocolate cinnamon and vanilla ice cream desert was one of the bests deserts ever.
Food was amazing and service
A true disappointment...........food was horrible!
Excellent food and service. We always eat at Garibaldi on our anniversaries and birthdays. This was my parents 64th wedding anniversary and we had rented the upstairs for their 50th anniversary which brought many memories Monday evening. The food quality is excellent, having your special order perfect the first time, and the timing between courses just right. Professional, friendly staff.
All I could ask for would be to add pomegranate cosmos to the menu. What to try? The poached pear salad with fried goat cheese is above par.
We have been going to Garabaldi’s for years. Our favorite restaurant in Savannah by far. Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary this trip and it couldn’t have been better. The scored flounder and scallops were cooked to perfection.
Great..... always go there when in or near Savannah
Wonderful, will return
I got the same dish as before, but this time it was bland. Nothing special.
The food was amazing, the service was excellent. The overall surroundings were stunning. This was such a delightful surprise!
Steak Diane: requested cooked medium but was cooked well
Chicken Marsala: chicken was low quality in that it was fatty and greasy
Service was ok. I did appreciate both meals being spilt so we could share both.
Best meal and service ever! The scallops were the best I’ve had in Savannah
Decent service waiter seemed flustered and busy even though there were multiple empty tables and other servers were hanging out and talking with each other not really helping out at all, had to walk up one at the bar to ask for a refill of water (glass sat empty for 10mins), food was amazing which was no surprise, but the bartenders couldn’t make simple cocktails nor did they know what type of glass particular cocktails go in (watered down or almost 100% pure alcohol) to top it off our waiter spilled a entire drink on my date , very shocking considering it is an upscale place, this is the second and probably last time we will go although the first time was a few months ago and was a much better experience maybe it’s new staff, who knows
Overall wonderful experience with great food and service. Only comment is the chocolate tort, key lime pie and pecan pie were very small portions. Other desserts and including the cheesecake, Pecan basket and creme brûlée’s were apportioned well.
Great night out. Excellent and attentive service.
Great experience for our anniversary. Waiter Bobbi was awesome; very attentive and gracious. Second time here; food was amazing. A must do in Savannah.
Great food for a fine dining evening.
This is one of the best restaurants in Savannah! We had a large group of ten and everyone loved and devoured their meals. We were seated upstairs, which is now my new favorite place due to the low noise level and ambiance. This restaurant is a crowd pleaser.
We went for a birthday celebration. It was our second time to this restaurant. The staff very friendly and accommodating. Our server was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. She took time to explain question we had about items on the menu and not only suggested wine options based on our preferences, she also provided samples. It was a great experience.
Great as usual. Took old high school friends that we have not seen in over a decade. They were very impressed with the food and service.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a taste for fine dining. The ambiance is awesome, kind of a throwback to the 20s in the downstairs bar and dining room, lighter and brighter upstairs. The food is always top notch. The regular menu has great variety and they always have fresh seasonal specials. With a full bar and wine menu you can pretty much drink whatever you like, I would recommend talking to your server as ours was able to make a great suggestion based on what we told him. The service is impeccable, attentive without being obnoxious and knowledgeable about the menu. The manager even came by to welcome us and make sure everything was going well, a nice personal touch that I always appreciate. For some the prices may seem a little high, but you'll be paying the same for a fried seafood platter down on river street without the setting or service. I can't wait to go back!!
Fantastic all around, I cannot wait to return! Our server Gage was amazing
Thanks for a delicious meal served with friendliness and care.
Food was a step up from canned creamy sauce. Server was good. For one of the best in Savannah I would say not accurate at all! Look elsewhere.
We were 11 of us celebrating a friend's birthday. We all had a wonderful time, excellent food, excellent service, excellent ambiance. My choice of crispy duck was the best duck that I had ever tasted. cant wait to go back.
Yes, great food and service. Seems to be a happening place for Savannah. Would definitely go there again.
