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.

Fantastic upscale food. Will visit every time I'm in Savannah.

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.

Great food and drink, friendly service, a memorable evening. On the downside, pretty pricey, and some small gaps in server attentiveness. But I'd go back again for a special event.

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.

Always order the we've ever had. Scallops were also perfectly cooked and delicious!

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.

The ambience was perfect, the noise level was low, I couldn't have asked for better service. This is one of Savannah's great restaurants.

We had a wonderful meal here while visiting Savannah. Our host & waiter were fantastic. Great steak, pork chop & grouper. Good wine list too!

Our third visit & we always are WOWED! The Pate Foie Gras is the best in the world!
The Thai pork was outstanding with the perfect combination of flavor. The scallop Appetizer with caviar was Awesome. Also perfect wine pairings. Order the chef's table if you can. Wonderful food & wine !

Workers hung out by the door and smoked which wafted in to the restaurant. Steaks were undercooked. Sides were cold. Overall not impressed.

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.
