The food is absolutely amazing! I went here after my graduation ceremony and I was so grateful to have a chose SavannahBlue! Trying out a new restaurant can go either way and they did not let us down! The oxtail is a must have entree and the ambiance of the place is 5 stars! 10 out of 10 would recommend!

The ambiance is wonderful. The snapper was not well seasoned. However, the shrimp and grits and catfish appetizer were amazing.

Took my wife out for Mother’s Day dinner. I’m glad I chose Savanna Blue. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional from the front door to the table.

My favorite Detroit soul food restaurant! I’m never disappointed! Don’t expect to walk in and sit-it’s so amazing, you will probably do best by making a reservation!

We got to the restaurant at 7:40 didn’t receive our food until 9:30. Had to keep asking for a server they didn’t even ask what we wanted to drink. Out appetizers came out AFTER our food. Sides didn’t come out with entree. It was just a mess. I guess short staffed.

This was by far the worst experience at the restaurant. I've been several times and have never had this experience. We ordered the fish dinner, fries weren't done asked for new ones and never got them. Manager came over and just said sorry, not that he would fix it. All we had was catfish and nothing else. Just HORRIBLE. I won't even discuss the server he was HORRIBLE! He should never serve another table in his life.

The ambiance is obviously not the same due to social distancing the tables as a result of COVID. Music was loud-had to yell at waitress to hear the order. Service was not as good as we’ve had in the pass (good reviews were leff before). Staff kept bringing other people’s orders to our table and walking around to other tables to find out if it belonged to others. Ultimately, our table’s order was entered wrong, possibly because the waitress didn’t write down the order and assumed chicken was ordered instead of fish. Quality and portions of the food before (pandemic) were better. We’ll give this restaurant some time to improve before we return.

The service was mediocre. Our server didn’t seem interested in serving. The food was decent. The peach cobbler was terrible and so were the drinks. The prices for their alcohol is ridiculous. I don’t think we’ll be back anytime soon.

The oxtails that I ordered were sooo good but I didn’t like the set up my opinion like the table and chairs you do go up some stairs to enter the restaurant but they were sanitized well

I was annoyed that I made reservations a month in advanced and still was told I had to wait due to my table wasn’t available because there were busy for sweetest day. That was the whole reason I made the reservation. We had to wait outside due to Covid and they had no seating outside. Our waiter didn’t give use proper attention. We waited on our drinks for 20 minutes. They food was ok, the risotto was under cooked but had good flavor. The atmosphere was nice but music was loud. I did like that they give you bottled water.

The management was very rude considering it was my birthday and I expressed to them why I was dressed accordingly. They then made a big deal and held me at the door for 15 minutes to inquire on if I’m able to enter the building because I stomach showing. Overall this could have been easily handled if they were at least a bit considerate.

Only issue with this visit was we had a reservation and the restaurant appeared to be behind schedule and we had to push our entire night back about an hour do to this issue.
