    Market Fidh of the Day was delicious. Sheep’s head w a beet puree and veg. Pan seared . 100% perfect . The chef crushed this dish. Ambiance is great. From the curb it’s not anticipated. The sommelier recommend a great wine in our budget. Would definitely go back .

    Overrated and overpriced. Pork belly board was good and might have been the best we had at this restaurant, specially the pickle veggies, but the blue cheese didn’t make sense in the pairing. A dozen oysters for $58, and they were not the best oysters we’ve had for that price. The “lobster” Mac and cheese had 4 tiny pieces of lobster, and the lamb shank’s risotto was gummy and overcooked. Server was really nice, but they need to step up their game in the kitchen.

    We had the best experience at Common. We were able to enjoy the services of the in-house sommelier. There were some minor issues with food but the chef and management addressed them immediately. This gave our table the opportunity to meet the chef which was a pleasure. The highlight of our evening was our server Britnee. She is a shining star!! Thanks to all for a wonderful evening!

    Common is a misnomer as the experience is anything but common. The staff are fantastic, from the hostess to the servers, everyone is friendly, inviting, and attentive. The server offered us the opportunity to sample our wine selection before committing to a bottle which helped us make the perfect choice. We had the short ribs and caprese fried chicken. Both were wonderful but the corn bread that accompanied the short ribs was simply perfection. Undoubtedly one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. We’ll never miss an opportunity to stop here while visiting Savannah.

    the restaurant has a great room- we sat upstairs so we had a nice view of everything. it was full and very loud. the service started out a bit jagged (apps came out really quickly and the drinks had not yet arrived) but then the manager stepped up and lended a hand and everything proceeded smoothly. The menu was a nice selection of dishes outside of what feels like every single restaurant offers in Savannah, and every dish we ordered was delicious and unique. (trombone bruschetta, jackfruit bolognese, fried portobello, a chicken caprese dish and crab cakes).

The drinks were really really good and the appetizers were outstanding. All 6 of us got different things All around a positive feedback The only down was the short-rib was not tender Very chewy and allot of fat that didn’t render Very nice experience We will be back to try more items.

    Charming setting. We liked the booths by the bar. Our server was attentive and the manager came by a couple times. I liked the scallop appetizer but not so much the cheesy collards that came with it. Much of the food seemed to be on the heavy side which wasn't what I was in the mood for that evening.

    Highly recommend this place. Only issue was they served me pineapple juice that was old and smelled like sulfur. It was pretty offensive but they were quick to fix it. I would say I was shocked they didn’t remove it from our bill, most restaurants would not have made us pay for that. Aside from that we ordered 2 dozen oysters, they were all delicious. We also ordered the crab cake Benedict and the lobster and shrimp tacos, both meals were flavorful, fresh tasting, and meals we would go back for.

    We were celebrating my birthday, and I made note on our reservation. The hostess was warm, welcoming and wished me a happy birthday! She seated us upstairs at a nice quiet table, overlooking the dining room below. Our waiter was wonderful. He also wished me a happy birthday, and gave us great, personal service. The octopus app, our entrees (short ribs and lamb shank), and desert was absolutely amazing. Not to mention the unique martinis with bitters! Who knew?! The whole experience was outstanding. The employees enjoying working there and it shows. Management is doing something right. Kudos to all. I wish we lived closer!

    Reservations were at 7:00, admittedly we were about 5 minutes late due to parking and walking. Hostesses awkwardly discussed where they were going to place us for a good 2 minutes. Once seated we didn’t receive any kind of recognition from the wait staff or manager until 7:31. We were a group of 5 including a baby (so quite noticeable) and had waiters coming to other tables around us repeatedly within this time. Nothing so much as “can I get you some water?”, a head nod, or eye contact. Truly the worst 30 minutes of a service in Savannah we’ve had in 3 years. We were just about to leave when one of the waiters who were running around to the tables around us during the 30 minutes finally decided we existed. After our existence was acknowledged service and food were fantastic. No complaints. Tybee oysters were amazing. Main entrees were expedited so we ended up not spending any extra time there. Butcher’s choice meals were cooked perfectly…. Waiter was kind and helpful. Just wish we hadn’t started the reservation like we had…. Especially with a baby and no water. Even with the rough start I would still recommend it. They worked hard to make up for their mistake.

    This was our 1st experience at this restaurant and it was wonderful! My wife and I were welcomed at the hostess stand by a lot of smiles - dont see that too much anymore! They accommodated my wife's request for a corner table. The food was outstanding! We had oysters rockefeller and the mussels for appetizers. Wonderful! I had the chicken caprese and my wife had the short rib. BOTH absolutely delicious but the highlight of the meal was the cornbread that came with my wife's meal...it was so so good!!! We are looking forward to returning for another great meal...and to have more of that cornbread! 🤣
