When I first arrived I was greeted by a hostess and the manager on duty. We were promptly escorted to a table. Received menus quickly. Appetizer was great- we had the BLT stack. Dinner was good, the cut of meat was excellent. On the way out the manager remembered it was my birthday & told me to enjoy my night- this is definitely the best choice for a steak while downtown!

The atmosphere and food is good here. My only suggestion would be to put salt on the vegetables. There wasn't an ounce of seasoning on the spinach, brussel sprouts or haricot verts.

The valentines menu was excellent, with options for every pallet. I enjoyed the filet and lobster, while my fiancé had the crab stuffed salmon. Due to the special occasion, the noise level was a little above quiet but was not an issue.

Nice building, great location.
However...my grouper was Very salty, friends shrimp and grits came with shrimp that had to be peeled and grits in cake form ( should have been disclosed in the menu description), my husband ordered a medium steak that arrived very rare and had to be returned. We ate while he waited. The steak was only OK in terms of taste and tenderness. Not a $42 steak. We ordered cappuccino. It arrived as espresso with no cream because the machine was empty???? The waitress did not notice it was totally dark brown???? The glass was clear!!! They still charged us for the cappuccinos.

My family had lunch Tuesday 2/6 at Belford’s for my Mom’s 80th Birthday. The food was delicious and the service was excellent! Of course I can’t remember our waiters name but he even brought my Mom chocolate covered strawberries for her special day!! Thanks for the extra touch!!

My service and my food was great. I initially wanted to go somewhere else for dessert, but my granddaughter fell asleep, so we decided to go ahead with dessert. The bread pudding was the best I have had in forever.
I work downtown at the Bohemian Hotel, so I will mention Belford's first to guest!

The food and service was great. Had the aged filet and my date had the crab cakes. Both were outstanding! The sides were just ok which is why I didn’t give a five star rating. Would definitely recommend!

We were here on Thursday evening for our Anniversary and had a delightful evening. Dinner started with Ginger Bacon Manhattans and a nice Malbec. We then enjoyed their Baby Wedge Salad and Beef Carpacio with delicious house made bread. The Filet Mignon served medium-rare was perfectly prepared, and the Salmon with Grilled Shrimp was equally good. White Chocolate Cheesecake and a 10 year Tawny Port rounded out the evening.

I am so happy that we chose Belford's for our New Year's Eve date night. The atmosphere was perfect. The waitress was right on, efficient! And the food was delicious! We are from out of town and plan to come back when visiting Savannah in the future.

Me and My husband was on a tour earlier in the day, and the tour guide suggested Belfords for dinner. We were so glad we listened to the tour guide. Reservations were easy to make and later that night we celebrated our 20th anniversary there. Awesome service, ambiance, and food.

On a trip to Savannah for the holiday. We were looking for light lunch and cocktails. Didn’t even think that at 6:30 every where we wanted to go would have a 30/40 minute wait for the lounge. Put our name in at a casual dining place with a 20 minute wait
Took a moment to look at OpenTable ... saw Belford’s could take us immediately!
Best decision ever! Damian, our server, put us at ease. Drinks in hand we ordered our light bites! The food was so good we ended up ordering entrees and desserts too!
It was a wonderful evening! We were thrilled with how our entire evening worked out

We were inside and there was a dog on in the table right behind me practically eating off the owners plate. The hostess wore clothes too small, her belly was hanging out of her shirt over her pants and her cell phone was falling out of her front pocket. The service was incredibly slow. For a place that is so expensive, one would expect better atmosphere.

The preparation of the food here is top notch. My whole table had the kale + bourbon peach salad, with the award winning appetizer crab cake for lunch, and were not let down. The crab cake definitely ranks as one of the best I have ever had - big chucks of crab, not overpowered by salt or seasoning. Really excellent.

The restaurant and food was terrific. We unfortunately arrived right after the brunch rash which slows down the service someone. Our waiter was still very gracious and try to expedite our meal and the best way he could. Definitely would return! Dog friendly and that gets five stars.

 (Detroit)·Dined on December 22, 2017

I ordered the house specialty, scallops. Small plate with only two. One was cooked properly and the other was not. They brought back the same scallops only slightly browner but still raw inside. Fried green tomatoes were good, as were the crab cakes and the shrimp with pasta. Staff seemed inexperienced but competent. Overall I expected more based upon website hype. Rather "touristy". Not Fine Dining as stated.

Disappointing dinner. Service was expected, but for a steakhouse, the steak was blah— I could make a better steak at home. Not seared enough. And my friends pork dish was raw in the middle—yes I said pork. Considering the price, I expected better.
If you can’t make great steak, you have no business calling yourself a steakhouse.
