    Cohen’s is always “iffy’, but we took our chances and it wasn’t bad - but it wasn’t good either. The menu was interesting, but most of what we ordered we couldn’t taste - it was so highly seasoned with hot spices! The restaurant was pretty empty, but the service was still slow and uneven. Once again we were disappointed, but not so much so that we won’t try again- but not soon and certainly not with anyone we with whom we aren’t close.

    Avoid making reservations during a “banquet” event. The kitchen is drastically understaffed. We waited over an hour to be served. The preparations were over-cooked and dried-out.

    New menu so it took time to reconsider choices. Likes the kale and farro salad but next time with dressing on the side We sat in the tables across from the bar. Which is a noisier choice and would ask for the central dining. Space next time

    We have eaten there several times and have raved about the food and service. Last night was an awful experience. There were 9 entrees on the menu. They were out of THREE of them and this was at 6:30. They were also out of the soup of the day. My wife ordered the salmon which was served on a bed of lemon risotto. The risotto tasted like paste at best. There was absolutely no taste at all to the risotto. The salmon was overcooked. The two desert offerings were very poor. Overall we were very disappointed as we recommended this restaurant to the friends we took and were embarrassed at how bad it was. It’s really disturbing to see wait staff with tattoos all over their arms and rings in their noses.

    Everything was great except the music. It was loud and hard rock so too much for lunch. We were seated just beyond the bar but still seemed a bit much for lunchtime. Everything else was perfect as always.

    Cohens Retreat is, average. Or just slightly under average. For the price you pay and the food you receive, it goes hand in hand with any other restaurant in the Savannah area. Spend 20$ more, head to Noble Fare and you’ll receive double the quality, hospitality, and ambiance. CR, to my understanding, was an upgraded senior residence and it shows. HVAC in the ceiling was painted over, tables were damaged/chipped, and the internal decor was a step back to a 1910’s Bourgeoise dining room. Out of date. Service was okay. As a party of one, I was placed in the corner of the dining room and felt neglected. Waitress did not seem knowledgeable about the menu. I received some recommendations but lacked a level of confidence on the quality of food. I’d here different recommendations at each table. Food was okay. I ordered the tomato pie, NY strip, and Boston cream cake with a cup of coffee for dessert. Tomato pie boasted to have a “secret blend of heirloom tomatoes, hand picked and seasoned.” The two pies that came out had nothing more than your average garden tomato diced up and under seasoned. Was paired with an herb ricotta that split on top of the dish and a heavy serving of a balsamic reduction. Better to have a slice of pie, with a drizzle of the balsamic, and a dollop of the ricotta. Was too much and the star of the dish, the tomato would have shined. NY strip was cooked to medium rare, portion was maybe 8oz after being cooked. For 36$, not had. Dessert was disappointing. A slice of refrigerated cake, hard shell ganache, served with a mint leaf, and burnt coffee. Save the money on dessert for the tip. That and a glass of wine for one person, not including tip, was 77$. Worth it? No. When I was asked by the host how the food was and responded with “Eh, was okay.” He walked away. Take that for what you will. All in all, I do not plan on returning to Cohens Retreat for dinner.

    The venue was beautiful. The food was good, but not extraordinary. There was a good selection of wines by the glass. I enjoyed the Lodi Zinfandel and the tomato tarte. The duck was smoked and the sauce pretty tasteless and both were cold. The server was polite, but blew it when she arrived with the check not before asking if I wanted dessert or coffee.

    Cohens is the most interesting setting, one of the top historic venues in Savannah for dining. Our dinner party had been there previously, and it was just as grand as previous. Bar and dinner service was prompt and kind. We had several excellent cocktails and dinner selections, especially the rigatoni and strip steak. We will be back, as so much eclectic fun to enjoy in one setting!

    Dinner with friends. Service was wonderful. The atmosphere is great. The Ceasar salad was a little too anchovy fishy tasting. It would be nice to have bread while waiting for meal for the price.

    Took friends in from Atlanta to dinner there this weekend. We were excited to try out the new menu as we have always loved the food. We ordered the charcuterie for an appetizer. It left a lot to be desired. Even like a little honey added to the dish would help IMO. I ordered the NY Strip with Brussel Sprouts. My entire dish was cold- steak, potatoes, and sprouts. Husband ordered the tortellini dish. This was the greatest disappointment of the evening. $28 tortellini dish. The whole dish consisted of 4 half dollar sized tortellini’s and…that’s it. And they were “bland” at best. Menu changes are a challenge and I am confident our next experience at Cohen’s will be better but I’d give them some time to work out the menu kinks.
