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.

The waiter couldn't seem to understand that rose and chardonnay were not the same ! Service was slow and the food was lukewarm by the time it reached us. Very disappointed.

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.

We are from NYC and every year we enjoy our Labor Day Sunday Brunch at Belford's.
The food, service and ambiance are excellent. I had the Triple Burger and my husband had the Frittata. Both dishes were delicious. The wine list is reasonable and the food portions are generous. Our server, Johnathan took good care of us. He was attentive, charming and made sure our orders came just as we requested.
It's always nice to see Managing Partner, Kevin McPherson. He always makes it a point to approach each table to make sure each and every customer is having a pleasant dining experience.
We always have a good time there. We look forward to going back.

This place was great (and ACTUALLY dog-friendly)! My family, little dog and I had had a particularly unfortunate experience the night before with another restaurant that simply failed in executing the bare minimum requirements of what one would expect from those purportedly in the business of hospitality. Ken, our ah-mahzing dinner Sherpa, as well as the managers and other staff were just incredible and so accommodating. They were instrumental in making that prior evening’s experience a distant, unpleasant memory.
The food was fantastic, the ambience was great and we even had a mishap with one of our meals that everyone went above and beyond to remediate - including personally by one of the managers! Such fabulous service is a rarity these days, but it is definitely a specialité de la maison at Belford’s. I will certainly be back, and will not hesitate to recommend it to others. Thanks, y’all!

We had Sunday brunch at Belford’s. It was great! The food was delicious! The only thing I heard that was not a positive (and it was not really negative) was that the waffles from the chicken and waffles were very thick. Our server Kai was attentive and professional, and kept our cups full of their delicious tea! The restaurant was clean, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

I can't say enough good things about Belford's. They had an extensive menu, healthy food portions and delicious cuisine. Everything was cooked and seasoned perfectly and outstanding. Wait staff was great and accommodating. The only small thing I would recommend is moving the air conditioning grates out from under the tables.

On vacation and wanted a special meal. Wanted to sit inside the nice dining room but way too cold from a/c. So we decided to sit outside which is not conducive to a fancy expensive meal. Hubby had delicious pork chop (could feed a small family). I ordered the crab cake and sent it back. Worst crab cake ever. Dry, no flavor, not hot when served

I make it a point to eat here once a year when I am in the area for my annual visit. Belford’s Savannah never disappoints. Our server was a very sweet, very pregnant young lady who smiled and was attentive during our entire meal. She was great! The food was excellent as always. Thank you Belford’s.

We went for restaurant week. The choices offered were good. Portions too big! Beef was undercooked and some portions of my meal were cold. Cheesecake dessert was not very good. Service was very good and the atmosphere is nice. Don't think I would go back if I had to pay regular prices as it is quite expensive.

Belford's was a great restaurant last time I was in town. Sadly, it seems to have changed dramatically since. The food was inconsistent at best. The steak was good, but vegetables were undercooked & not seasoned, & the risotto was nothing more than dry rice with mushrooms. The waitress was good, but a manager was screaming the entire time. Unless there are major changes, I will not go again.
