    Such great delivery on soul food. Catfish wasn’t oily at all and just perfect. Roasted cauliflower really surprised us. The flavors were unique and the yogurt was a Perfect combination with the subtle roasted flavors. The spiced wings had so much flavor and was prefect with the side of bbq sauce. Sauce was a tad sweet though. The greens were not fatty, it was just right with the Turkey.

    Excellent hand-crafted cocktails at the bar. Great food, too. Only negative was that music was way too loud. Very few people in the dining room, but the songs were blaring. Could not talk to tablemates.

    The entire experience was perfect; from the team to the food! The only issue I have is parking. The lot behind your restaurant should have more than a cash option for payment.

    The food was delicious. Catfish fritters ( very good and roumalade was excellent) for appetizer, 3 of us had the fried chicken ( Fantastic!) 1 had the ox-Tail ( he loved it) the bread pudding and berry cobbler for dessert. We loved the bread pudding, the cobbler was just okay. Overall we all really enjoyed the experience.

    From the gentleman at the door to the hostess and then our server Brittany, everyone was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The atmosphere was comfortable although the A/C was blowing straight down the wall on to our two top table. The food and drinks were well executed. We were both pleased with our experience.

    Pre-concert dinner: very attentive server checked on me frequently while waiting on my delayed dinner guest. Mixed drink was interesting—- their take on a Kentucky mule—-with berries. Glad I tried it but would not order a second time. My guest enjoyed their salmon entrée thoroughly as I did my kale Caesar salad with salmon. The lone negative was the shareable greens. While they were very tasty, the salt level made them difficult to finish. BTW, music is just a bit imposing, sometimes making conversation difficult. I am looking forward to my return.

    Service was poor. After being seated, then greeted my the waiter. The waiter filled my water glass and never came back to my table. I had to inquire to the hostess, and to another wait person as to where he had gone. One of the worst dining experience I have ever encountered.

    Had a great time, the food was amazing and the drinks were good as well. The only negative would be the reservation area. Where we were seated we could hear everything from the kitchen like we were working in there. Yet as we passed through the front of the restaurant it was far more quiet regarding kitchen noise and the acoustics for the music was far superior than the reservation area. I will definitely give it another shot in the future, but will be sure to request seating in the bar area.

    We had heard about Savanah blue and wanted to try it out. The experience lived up to the recommendations. The staff was friendly, yet professional. The ambience is warm. We had the hummus, catfish, braised oxtail. Delicious. Highly recommend for a Gourmet, Southern experience.

    Everything was amazing. Only thing was we had a table full of food and asked our server if she could box our appetizer so we could have more room. She instead responded that she could bring us a box and we barely had any room at our table to even box it. I feel like at an establishment of this caliber it should have been done for us. Otherwise the food was amazing, we did not experience a long wait at all. Will definitely come back!
