Excellent food. Well done
Brunch was ok but expected more for some reason based on dinner menus.
Yelp reviews were a bit misleading. The menu was creative and sounded good, but the actual execution was lacking. The best things we had were the spoon bread appetizer and the cornbread. The pork chop had large sections which were actually inedible. The brisket was flavorful but dry. The server was helpful and friendly, but pretty inexperienced. Bartending seemed fairly limited.
Took 20 mins to get coffee and had to track down the waitress multiple times even though we were one of two groups in the restaurant. Awesome breakfast sandwich, but not sure it was worth it unfortunately.
It is disappointing to hear that it took so long for your coffee. We pride ourselves in creating a great dining experience and obviously we fell short this morning. I am glad that your breakfast sandwich was tasty. Hopefully you'll give us another shot!
Fantastic food, and our bartender (Chris) was really great company.
Found this place highly rated on Yelp. As soon as I realized it was in a hotel I should have just backed away slowly, but I had seen the Pastrami Benedict on the menu and wanted it, so in we went. What a disappointment. Service was really half-assed, couldn't get our own server's attention so ended up having the hostess and maybe a manager? help us out when we needed something (like a fork and the check). The food looked good but had zero taste. Really bland. My poached eggs were hard which in a Benedict should really be runny and I overheard the girl sitting next to us (they were less than a food away due to their cozy seating arrangements) say her eggs were overcooked as well. All this on a tasteless burger bun. If the chef reads these reviews, my suggestion is to use more seasoning and put it on a bread that actually tastes good on it's own instead of relying on the flavor of the pastrami and egg. Even my Chai Latte was awful and I'm not super picky about my chai - how do you even do that? Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere. They did a nice job designing the restaurant but need to change who is in the kitchen. I am a food tourist, so when I travel I spend a lot of time looking for a place that will be interesting and I usually do a good job of finding great food. This was a personal fail and I hate that we wasted a meal on this place.
We appreciate your feedback although it is not positive it is crucial for businesses to hear the negatives. This information can only help us grow. We have shared this review with our entire staff including our Chef. Guest response is the most important and for that we Thank you! I sincerely apologize for your disappointing experience.
Perfect family brunch!! Grits - biscuits - egg sandwiches - omelette- chicken sausage - we were in Heaven!!
Thanks for dining with us here at Rhett!!
We came across Rhett on Yelp and decided to give it a try. It was a bit of a challenge to find due to the construction in the area , but we did finally enter through the hotel and took the elevator down to the restaurant. It is a well appointed and trendy location.
We ordered the mussels and Chicken Paillard Salad. The mussels were fantastic and you can't beat the price for the serving size. The salad was slightly disappointing. It is more like a pan fried chicken cutlet with a small side salad. The flavors were good, but I was expecting a larger salad since it is listed under the salad section of the menu.
Overall it is a great place to dine. We will be back trying other options on the menu.
Thank you for your feedback. We will pass it along to our Chef. We appreciate your input and please come see us again!
Great evening with friends. Wonderful food, prompt service, and a great atmosphere. Nice little gem
Enjoyed brunch with our son and his girlfriend. Rhett is located near construction but we had no problem finding parking or the restaurant. Very modern and upscale decor. Delicious brunch choices! Service was very attentive without being intrusive. Would highly recommend!!
Very disappointing evening meal. Service was not professional at all. Could not explain dishes in any shape of form. Choice of food was uninspiring. No fish dishes except some cod soup. Still don’t know what it was. Having said that my mussels were ok and my frenchfries were good. Ambiance was non existing. Only one more table was occupied.

Rhett was everything you would want in a night out on the town. The food and service were excellent. Chef's Steak au poivre was the best ever. Our lovely server, Denise, was highly skilled and full of personality. She made our evening fun. Elegant restaurant and reasonably priced.
So glad you chose us! I'll make sure Denise see's this lovely review.
Delicious cocktails and food within a beautiful environment that provides great service.
Thanks for dining with us!
We selected this restaurant for Mother's Day Brunch b/c it offered both breakfast and lunch at the same time, and that would keep all my people happy. The restaurant is inside the Alida hotel; park upstairs and valet, it's free. Inside it's an elevator ride down to ground level. it's a cute restaurant; well done and typical of new restaurants these days w/ the open concept, bar, etc.
So for the food? It is just going to depend. Two of us ordered the boursin cheese and spinach and chive omelette and it was underwhelming. The cheese was too much and cooled the eggs so that it was basically lukewarm. Breakfast potatoes it came w/ were fine but the menu stated it was a side salad. I didn't bring this up. We started w/ biscuits that were delicious and easy to share; it came as 2 and four ppl could eat those two w/ no problem. My son's egg sandwich on an english muffin was delicious! He got fries w/ it (I know.) and they were good too. My husband's burger was good too. Just nothing to write home about. They are only 6 months or so open, so they clearly have some kinks to work out. I would say they really need to look at their menu and maybe take it down a few notches, offer less, but offer what they do, well.
The staff we met were fine. So our server was fine; not extraordinary but attentive. The Manager however was amazing; she got it and when we had to send an order back, she not only took that meal off the ticket, but brought extra fries to compensate for the delay.
I might try it again, I am not sure. I said I would recommend it but there are a lot of really amazing places to eat in this city and I just need the reviews on this to improve before I go back.
Thank you for your feedback. We do hope you come back.
Amazing food and aesthetic, great downtown location with cool features for friends visiting Savannah. We had the macaroni for an appetizer (AMAZING), I had the wedge salad and added chicken (SO GOOD), and my husband had the BBQ shrimp! Everything was great! Would definitely recommend to family and friends!
Thank you for dining with us here at Rhett!
Nice menu...very much over priced. Would eat elsewhere in city when visiting.
The service was terribly slow even though the restaurant was not busy. The food was a huge disappointment with the steak being incredibly tough with no flavor at all. Too expensive a dish to serve that way. We will not be returning to Rhett.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We have just approached our 6 month marker here at Rhett were we strive to create a great experience and quality tasted food. Obviously we fell short when you dined with us. We hope that you will give us another shot. Please feel free to contact me directly and I will gladly make you a reservation.

Loved the atmosphere, enjoyed the food
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We strive to provide quality food and service to each guest. We hope you return again soon. Thanks,
Floor Manager was rude and should not be in customer service. Kitchen took an hour to bring appetizers and main course came out half hour after that. When main course arrive they were not cooked thoroughly. As we had clams and steak we were not comfortable eating these dishes since they were not prepared properly.
Also a strange thing to note the entire restaurant was using plastic disposable cups because ‘they ran out of glass...’
Finally to end our long experience at Rhett, another customer puked in the middle of the restaurant. It was poorly cleaned leaving chunks all over the floor for a nice dinner view.
Do not recommend this place for date night.
Good Morning, First of all, I would like to apologize for the experience you had at Rhett Restaurant. We strive to provide excellent food and service and we sincerely apologize if we were unable to provide you this experience this past weekend. We were using plastic disposable glass this weekend for safety reasons since it was St Patrick's day weekend. Please ask for Arthur the next time you are coming back, i would like to take care of you. Thank you for your feedback Director F&B
We went for lunch and were pretty disappointed with our experience. I was told the mac and cheese entree was large enough to share between two people, but what I received was hardly more than an appetizer portion. I ended up having to order a second entree. Overall, the food was just average and not worth the amount we ended up spending. Water was served in plastic cups you'd find at a diner, and the cocktails came out in small plastic cups as well (maybe this was due to it being St. Patrick's Day weekend?). The restaurant has a really cute vibe and I loved everything else at the Alida, but this experience really just fell short for us.
Good Morning, I'm sorry to hear that you had a disappointing experience and hope that you will give us an other chance to convince you that we strive to provide excellent food and service. We were using plastic glass this weekend for safety reasons since it was St Patrick's day weekend. Please ask for Arthur the next time you are coming back, i would like to take care of you. Thank you for your feedback Director F&B
Food and service were great! My only complaint would be it’s hard to find the restaurant. Could’ve used some signage.

Found reviews of Rhett online and they seemed highly rated. Location is not easy to find and actually drove by it twice. Minimal diners should have a been a signal. Inside decor is very nice and open. Service as good but food was fair at best. Vegetable appetizer was the best item we had here. The entree was overcooked and dry. Did not stay for desert based upon meal. Not sure why it was rated so high

What an amazing find. The cauliflower app, mussels, celery root, and burger were outstanding. Even the side salad was delicious. Service could not have been more well timed or friendly.
Hello, Thank you for your kind words. We really take pride in offering quality food and service. Please come dine with us again soon. Thanks,
No thanks. Slow service and we are live of 2 or 3 tables being served

As a teachable moment I will be sure to use your feedback to improve our team. I hope you reconsider and choose to dine with us again. Thank you,
For a recently opened restaurant, service and food quality were surprisingly good. Our server, was outstanding and anticipated our needs. We share the fried cauliflower which was delicious. I then had the spinach omelette for my lunch entree. The omelette was average, but the fried potatoes and caramelized onions that accompanied it were off the charts delicious.
Good afternoon, I am so happy to hear you had a great experience at Rhett. As a fairly new restaurant it really means a lot to hear you noticed the quality in the food and service. We look forward to you dining with us again. Thanks,
Excellent fresh food which was delicious. Denise was a wonderful server, very attentive and efficient.
Hello, Thank you so much for dining with us at Rhett. We work very hard to provide quality food and service. Please come back and see us again soon. Thanks,
We went on a Thursday night and there was only two other people sitting at the bar, unfortunately there is construction going on and not much signage to the restaurant. However, we loved chatting with the bartender and the food was outstanding. The decor is very nice, it has great potential.
Hi Jack, I am happy you chose to dine with us despite the construction. The construction can be a bit challenging at times but we stand out with our extraordinary food and service. Please come back and see us again soon. Thanks,
Rhett offers a great dining experience. They were not busy on the night we dined, but we also went at a later time. It's a nice restaurant with a special feel while also being casual and unpretentious. The portion sizes are ample. We expected them to be smaller but were pleasantly surprised. The food is creative but not too over the top that you're unsure of what you're eating. Service was great and attentive. We also ordered drinks that were delicious and fairly priced. We will definitely be back and will bring friends with us next time!
We had an excellent dinner at Rhett. I had the Fried Cauliflower appetizer and it was fabulous - not deep fried but sautéed so it wasn't greasy or heavy. Just delicious! For my main course, I had the Celery Root Dumpling - since I am vegan, they made it without the puree on the bottom - but it again was delicious. I definitely will be having it the next time I am in Savannah. My husband had the Chicken Paillard, which he also loved. The chicken was well seasoned and cooked and the salad was also very good. Service was attentive and the prices reasonable for the quality of the food. Highly recommend!!!
We dined at this restaurant to celebrate my MIL’s birthday. Everything that came to our table was delicious. Our waitress was exceptional, she did an amazing job making big over my MIL to make her birthday nice (this has been especially important to us since my FIL passed away a few years ago). The fried banana split was the birthday dessert we all shared, and it was spectacular.
Hello, I am so happy you chose to celebrate her special day with us. Our chefs put a lot of effort into creating delicious dishes. Great food and great service is a perfect pairing and I am glad you experienced that here at Rhett. I hope you return again soon. Thanks,
Usually I am rather apprehensive about trying a very newly opened restaurant, but based upon early positive reviews I was curious to try Rhett in the new Alida Hotel. I was impressed! The restaurant itself was a very stylish and pleasing space.
We were warmly greeted by the hostess who remembered us from another Savannah restaurant ( nice touch) and were served by Denise, a highly competent and knowledgeable server. I had a seafood dish that included clams and a flaky cod while my girlfriend enjoyed her dish of mussels. Everything was cooked perfectly.
No doubt, we'll be back.
