The food was excellent, however the dessert was lacking. If the dessert is put on par with the main course; you will have an unbeatable combination.

The food was sub standard, there was three of us and all our food was cold, nothing like cold shrimp and grits. My husbands salmon was colder than my shrimp if that was possible. The only thing that made it bearable was our server. He was very personable. Never Again.

We got there and it took at least ten minutes before the waitress came to take our drink order. Then she brought unsweet tea instead of sweet tea. We ordered an appetizer, two salads, and dinner. The wedge salad was good, dressing made the salad. The bread is delicious! We never got the appetizer because the chefs didn’t make it. The steak was good and the mashed potatoes were probably the best thing on the plate. Also ordered a white chocolate bread pudding, didn’t taste much white chocolate at all mostly just a pile of bread. Mediocre service, okay food, nice atmosphere.

This was rated pretty high so we wanted to give it a try. We were doing steak and got a large bone in ribeye and ordered it medium well. We waited about an hour for it to come out when it did it was presliced and was cooked medium rare. I told the server right away and we worked out to just send part of it back since I actually don't mind the rareness. However, when I took the first bite the steak was pretty much room temperature. Since it was presliced it only took a few minutes to have the slices back to the table. It came with brussel sprouts that were hot but we're severely undercooked. Also came with mashed potatoes were good and added a little warmth to the steak while eating so I guess the potatoes were the best part. I later heard several good comments about the resturant so maybe my incident was isolated. Would have been more consoling however if the floor manager would have seem to care a little. 2/23/18

We chose this restaurant because it was pet-friendly.
But the food, service and atmosphere were SO good, that we would go back again without our fur-child.
Amazing food. Each bite is "Awww, that is so good."

Made reservations for lunch for two and a dog, notified once we arrived that I should not have made reservations and outside seating was first come first serve. Luckily the hostess found a table for us. Once we were seated we were completely ignored by the wait staff around us; after 15 minutes and we didn’t even have water. I approached the hostess about our lack of a waiter. She said he was attending to a large party. Another waiter did bring us drinks and menus, but still we waited. After being at the restaurant for 50 min. With only water to show for it, I asked for the manager. We did get food with to go boxes and the manager did cut the bill in half but I was sad about our experience as this was a mother daughter vacation and our first visit to Savannah.

Amazing brunch hands down! Normally, I frequent Crystals or B Mathews that are staples in Savanah but, it was the day after St. Patty's and there wasn't too many places that weren't booked. I came across Belford's on open table not realizing it was right in front of the candy shop in City Market. Needless to say the service was top notch, the relaxing view was great, and most of all it was the best brunch we had in a long time. The chicken and waffles with gravy were superb. My boyfriend got the pork belly and eggs with grits, he's not a fan of grits but once he tried those he thought they were the tasty grits he has ever tried. There was the right amount of spices and tangy sweet flavors to complement the southern fried food that brought it all together. Highly recommend!

Usually love Belford’s, however this was ridiculous. They sat us because we had a reservation waited thirty minutes and no one saw us. Got up to get someone over to our table and they brought us water and then did not come back after 15 additional minutes we decided to leave. Tables were empty everywhere and after walked out and spoke to hostess she said they were out of most of their food. Why sit us if you can’t serve us, we would have much more understanding.

The service was very good. The food was tasty but over priced. My husband ordered their 14oz ribeye for $46. I was appalled with the price to meat ratio. I had their duck, which was good but a little undercooked and very big pieces.

We went for our 14th anniversary. We were seated quickly and greeted in a friendly manner. That's where the positives end. Once seated we waited 15 minutes for our bread, our drinks were often empty. If that wasn't bad enough it got worse. My husband ordered the Salmon with Shrimp and I ordered a Ribeye Steak barely well (just past med well, not quite fully well). While I know my request can confuse some chefs a good chef should have no issue. When our food came I cut into my steak to find it bloody. This was a good medium steak. We advised them of it not being done and asked to make sure it didn't have pink. When it was brought to me again (my husband is done eating, don't want his to get cold) it was still all pink inside and bloody when you cut into it. At this point we asked for the check and left. You would think a restaurant of this caliber would have a chef that can cook a well done steak. I recommend going elsewhere.

We picked this restaurant because it was close to our hotel on a rainy night and were happily surprised at how good it was for a tourist heavy area. My GF needs were addressed well and I was thrilled with the GF options, including she crab soup, which is not been able to try elsewhere. The red snapper with homemade sweet potato hash was a great dish. Husband loved both the seafood chowder and seafood linguini. Service was a little slow for a Sunday evening without much of a crowd, but that is my only criticism.

Don't understand the very few less than positive reviews. The food was exception, the baby kale salad with bourbon infused peaches and pecans was wonderful, the BLT stacker was very creative in taste and presentation, and the red snapper was amazing. Everything was perfectly seasoned and prepared. Our waiter, Josh, was funny and very attentive and responsive to all our needs. I almost forgot to mention the peach cobbler, a perfect ending to the evening.

I always get treated well here on my night out by myself. However, this time was a bit different. I dine alone, and I felt maybe I was a little bit dismissed. There were a lot of larger parties, so maybe it was just busy. I certainly didn’t get the same amount of attention as previous visits. Also, please PLEASE add more seasoning to your steak that is costing me nearly $50! They’re always cooked well, but a little more salt would go a long way. I was going to stay for dessert originally, but chose to leave due to the circumstances. I will return. I hope it’s better next time, as this is the place I come every time for my “me” night out. Food is always delicious.
