It was our first time to eat here but definitely not our last. The food was delicious and portion size was amazing! Belfords is a beautiful restaurant and in a great location!

This was our best meal in Savannah. We sat outside under the canopy and enjoyed the fresh air. Wonderful experience.

It was Thanksgiving night and the kitchen personnel apparently wanted to get home before they finished their work. One of our group of four had to return both their entree and dessert for heating, each was cold when delivered to the table. And the reheating of the dessert took nearly 15 minutes because the “oven had been turned off” and had to be restarted. And all four of our entrees (including the cold one) were delivered within minutes of our salads, well before we were ready. If you’re going to be open on Thanksgiving (which we appreciated) make sure management staff is around and able to oversee the operation. Belford’s apparently has a wonderful reputation, but did nothing to convince us on this night.

The food was cooked perfectly and the service was outstanding. My mom wanted crackers with her soup, which they did not have. They were kind enough to offer to make some freshly prepared crostinis for her. That is above and beyond service in my opinion. Great place.

Just these magic words get you two complimentary champagne glasses on a Friday night, “Friday night is date nights”. You got to say it right to receive the champagne. Let’s talk about how awesome the vibe, food, service and did I mention it’s in Savannah! Defiantly worth the splurge and must restaurant to try! Thank you Belford’s!

Terrible experience. There was a large table of very drunk and loud people a few tables away who were so loud we couldn’t hear each other. A man at another table stood up and stared at them for several minutes but then he and his party just left. The manager refused talk to them and just wanted to buy us more wine which we didn’t want. One server said that it was just the way Saturday night in Savannah was. Our waitress was great however and my friends both had filet mignon which they said was good. My halibut was terribly over cooked. Do not go to this restaurant if you want good food and ambience.

Wonderful restaurant in historic Savannah. I had the filet and it was so buttery and tender. The creamed spinach was very good and I opted for mashed potatoes instead of the fried potatoes that came with the entree.

We took guests from out of town for dinner. We all enjoyed our food...nothing was left on the plates.
I think this is one of the best restaurants in town for value, food and ambience. We ate outside and enjoyed both the weather and people-watching on City Market. Although we didn't have the crab cakes, I can also say they are the "best" of any place I've been. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We love this place, just weren’t on their “A” game that night. First off the manager couldn’t find our reservations. The calamari was fantastic (as always) something was off on the grilled shrimp but they did not charge us for it and even gave us a little token for our anniversary. We will always go back and truly enjoy this restaurant.

We came to celebrate our anniversary and had a fantastic dinner. Our waitress incorporated our personal preferences into her recommendations which made it feel individually catered. Next time we may sit outside instead because the interior was kind of smoky, but still a great ambiance.

My husband and I celebrated our 45th anniversary on October 5th. We had dinner at Belfords on the 4th. The experience was amazing. The restaurant is nice, the food was delicious and served in a very timely fashion, but most impressive was the staff. They were friendly, attentive and most professional. We will definitely be returning soon.

My friends and I went for brunch to cap off our reunion weekend. The restaurant and service were great, our food was bland, fruit was served warm as it had been sitting on a warmer.
My Shrimp and grits had 3 shrimp and half the plate were collard greens with no flavor.
The only thing we enjoyed were the biscuits.
Didn’t speak to manager as we were trying to keep the mood light.

There was a new head chef yelling/shouting orders at the cooks. She changed the atmosphere from one of peace to one of noisiness. Otherwise, I enjoyed my Belford's spot very well as usual.

Went for a birthday dinner. Not busy at all the night we were there. All of our 6 entrees were barely room temperature which is not cool for a $50 steak. All of the sides were room temp or colder as well, the only things hot were the fried potatoes so it’s like they cooked everything else and it sat waiting for the potatoes. We all left pretty disappointed.

Going to Belford's for lunch was an enjoyable experience. The calamari was excellent and worth the trip alone. For my entree, I had a delicious crab cake with an excellent tomato jam. However, the accompanying succotash was bland and the spinach was over seasoned. I would recommend having the crab cake appetizer instead as it comes with the crab and jam and not the disappointing sides.

Overall, Belford's is an interesting place. It's hard to say if I would visit again since I'm not in Savannah often. However, considering many of the finer establishments in Savannah aren't open for lunch, Belford's Savannah is an adequate option for an afternoon meal.
