Sapphire Grill

4.3

1086 Reviews
$31 to $50
Contemporary American
One of the city's most consistently stylish restaurants evokes a low-key, counterculture bistro, but its cuisine is grander and more cutting-edge than its industrial-looking decor and its level of hipness would imply. Wrapped in warm brick and cool steel, the Sapphire Grill has steeped itself in a history of fine culinary tradition. Christopher Nason is the owner and the most talked about chef of the moment in Savannah, preparing what he defines as a "coastal cuisine" based on seafood hauled in on the day of its preparation from nearby waters. From seasonal chanterelles and oregon black truffles, to the most tender cuts of meat and delicate seafood, Chef Nason and his team work feverishly to keep Sapphire at the mark expected of her.

    Every time that I've visited Savannah for the past 15 years, Sapphire Grill has been a "must do" on my list of places to eat. This time was no exception, but I will say it was the first time I came away feeling that I'm not sure I'd want to go back. The server acted like he didn't really want to be there at all and our food, although beautifully presented, was VERY under-seasoned. It was as though they ran out of salt in the kitchen and thought no one would notice if the food was pretty. I'm 3 days out and I'm still disappointed that 2 of us spent $150 on dinner and we both were horribly disappointed. I'm just hoping it was an "off night" in the kitchen and not a sign of the how the restaurant is going to be from here out.

    The evening was lovely. The maitre'd was attentive. It was a birthday dinner and the chef sent a VERY pretty and tasty dessert out. The salmon was quite different. The asparagus was a little tough. The beverages were VERY alcoholic. The bartender did an excellent job. I had a Mule and an Irish coffee.

    Our first visit as we were recommended to try it. The service was excellent but I felt the food was not exceptional as I had expected. I had the crab cakes with soup to start with and the soup was only lukewarm, I had the fish served over a bed of vegetables for main course and again the veg was not hot enough but the flavours were quite good. My wife enjoyed both her courses. The wine list was excellent.

    This quirky little restaurant had it all - great ambiance, outstanding service, and delicious food. The calamari with pesto was outstanding - truly the best we've ever tasted. Dinner was pork cheeks and the chicken breast stuffed with brie - both done to perfection. The best part of the meal - dessert! The creme caramel was to die for and the honey lavender cream - well, my husband said it best - you could just take a bath in that stuff! It was a wonderful dinner - highly recommend the Sapphire Grill.

    My Wife & I enjoyed our dinner at Sapphire. Our server Marshall was personable & attentive. My Bouillabaisse was very good although a couple shrimp were over cooked. That's why I didn't give 5 stars for the food. We would return the next time we're visiting Savannah.

    Very disappointed. Foie grass was excellent but entres not so good. I had pork cheek and tasted my wife's duck breast. Pork was tender but nothing special. Duck tasted more like cooked wood. Great wine list but even the wine could not compensate for the poor food. Will likely not go back and definitely do not recommend.

    Food and service were outstanding. We are serious food snobs with a hard to please pallet. Whenever we can get a chance to away we love to eat at higher end resteraunts. We try different places in the Savannah/Hilton Head area all the time and either add them to our repeat dinning list or scratch them. We will definitely be dinning with Saphire Grill again. Great overall experience.

    The food was fabulous. Great menu to select from and the cocktail menu was top notch. I loved the cozy environment. Good location for date night or a quiet business meal. The appetizers are so big they could be a meal – I would order no more than one per two people. Same thing with the main course – you will not leave hungry, so be careful if you want dessert.

    Went here as an afterthought when another reservation fell through, and was happy we did. Ordered simply...steak with braised oxtail and a salad, both shared with a fellow diner. PleaSe of food very well prepared. Extremely hospitable staff, and everyone, including my vegetarian, was plesed with their meals. I can't eat wheat, but it was fun watching them eat the berry cobbler!

    We were visiting our son serving in the Army in Savannah over the Christmas weekend. Our group consisted of some Army buddies and family. Our waiter was exceptional. His recommendations, service and delivery knocked everyone over. The meal was creative, well prepared and the portions were appropriate for fine dining. Last, but not least, save room for dessert. The chef did not overlook this menu section.

    Reserved a table for 8pm on a Saturday night. We arrived a little early to hit the bar and met Gordon who made some wonderful cocktails. The manager and hostess were fine with seating us early and even offered a pleasant surprise. There is a private dining area located in the wine cellar below the main floor. The room was large enough to seat @ 4-6 people, but was very romantic. The food was absolutely wonderful and was exactly the way our server had described. We will be dining here again in the future and highly recommend this lovely restaurant to anyone dining in Savannah.

    Monday night, restaurant was quite empty. Good for us. The food was great, the service was impeccable. I forgot the manager's name but i thank him for his kind reception. I started with one of their signature coctails, excellent by the way. The wine list is a bit too short and limited, although we did have good wine. One of the best restaurants in Savannah.

    This was a special occasion for my daughter and her very special friends who are SCAD students who could not return home for thanksgiving due to the school's change in schedules due to the storm known as Matthew. The folks at Sapphire could not have been nicer to these young folks!! They were friendly, gracious and the food was fabulous!! They all said this was the best night of their college experience. It's a great tribute to a great restaurant that they did such a fantastic job for a group of young people who were unable to spend thanksgiving with their families. We will always dine at Sapphire whenever in Savannah and my daughter and her friends will always remember their experiences at Sapphire and dine there whenever possible. Sapphire certainly lives up to and exceeds its reputation.
