    Food was alright. Service wasn’t great. Bread was insanely overpriced. $12 for only two rolls, but they were good. Overall, the price was way too high for the service, food and quality we experienced.

    My waffle was delicious. My friends ordered the avocado tartine and it was 8/10. A bit hard and my one friend didn’t realize there would be cilantro in the avocado. The bread softened up after awhile and they enjoyed it more then.

    The food was fine once we had to ask about it twice as the table that sat down after us got their meal before we did. Our server was nice and paid attention to our water and coffee refills. The meal was ok but the location is great and the noise level very manageable.

    My food was superb. My server Brian seemed either overwhelmed or negligent. He took long to return to the table at moments but the server assistants and food runners were amazing. The manager was also pleasant (with cool tattoos). I would definitely return. Also Javi is a great asset to this team.

    This was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was amazing, the look of the restaurant felt rustic but trendy so I feel you could be fancy or casual, the drinks were expertly made (ended up stumbling a bit), and the waitress was so patient. She was very attentive, very knowledgeable/ the staff was also friendly. I recommend to anyone and would definitely come back again

    The menu for lunch was very limited. I wanted brunch and looked at a menu online. The menu I saw is only served on weekends. Breakfast service stops at 1000. We were there at 1100. So I had soup and Brie cheese appetizer. Very good but… not brunch.

    We were in Savannah for one day and saw the comments in Open Table so decided to try Emporium -- and were not disappointed. We had to wait a while for our waiter to appear. He was very apologetic, said he was training someone and brought us a side of delicious Parker House Rolls which we had not ordered. That was above and beyond what we expected and we were impressed that the restaurant empowers employees to take care of a situation when they see it. The menu was not extensive but the food was delicious.

    Our server Brian was amazing. Very nice, explained all the dishes, and was able to accommodate my wife’s no seafood needs. The issue we had was related to the food. The Foia Gras starter could have been a little bigger but was really good. The lobster pasta was a little plain ( had tons of pasta though) but was really heavy in sauce and salty. The steak was decent, but the pepper corn sauce and saltiness was a killer. The green apple dessert was sophisticated ,but flavors were a little floral for our taste. The ice cream that came with it was delicious. That being said, the tuna crudo and the duck confit was excellent! The two best dishes of the night.

    The food was mediocre. Chicken was too salty. Foie Gras portion was so tiny for what you pay. Steak was a bit overcooked and nothing special for the price. The bread and butter were nothing special and for a hefty $12- most restaurants provide this at no charge. Apple terrine and chocolate tarte were not very tasty and such a very small portion for the price…in fact, the Apple terrine comes with ice cream but it was just a teaspoon of ice cream. overall this dining experience was just okay but not worth it for the price. So many better restaurant meals in Savannah for a better value. The service however was great and the restaurant has a cool vibe and decor, although the live music is too loud to be able to have a conversation without screaming.

    The service was fantastic, and the ambiance was perfect; however, we paid $60 for a very thin steak that looked like it came out of the Cracker Barrel kitchen. We ordered it medium rare, and it came out well done. So they had to take it back and cook another one. At the end of the night, when they brought our check, they said that as a courtesy, they took care of our appetizer. I was just disappointed in my experience there. I used to love Emporium, but not anymore

    Restaurant was located in a different location than normal due to renovations. My wife and I have dined here previously three years ago with a great experience If you're serving a high end dining menu, the experience should not be compromised. I can't recommend dining here until they complete their renovations. Apps arrived after main course No cocktail menu Butter knife served with duck leg (who plates raw clementines with duck?)

    It was fine but overpriced for what it was. The tuna crudo was incredible and a few other things were tasty, but for $30 plates we expected more. Service was meh but the restaurant is super pretty. Eating here with a baby was relatively easy - they offered a high chair and an easy place to park our stroller and the hotel lobby had some really pretty rooms to explore when we needed a break. But overall I’m unlikely to eat here again… it was fine but not great.

    The food was just OK nothing great the $12 bread plate was disappointing. Onion soup was warm at best. The taffy pudding was dry they should have served with ice cream would’ve done better than the whip cream. The table next to us got hamburgers. They looked very good.

    Although we very much enjoyed our evening at the Emporium, I was a bit disappointed that the "Chef's Table Experience" never materialized. But maybe that didn't matter, since every one of our five courses was delicious, and thoughtfully prepared, and the service was well-paced and friendly and professional. The Chef did serve a couple of our courses, but beyond that, I wouldn't say there was much of an "experience".

    The Emporium used to be my favorite restaurant in Savannah, it offered great food, a nice ambience, and distinctive service. My last time dining there was underwhelming. The service was fair, the ambience felt different - too casual, and the restaurant looked dirty. The food was not great. The menu items have really gone down in quality and lost the distinctive flavors they once had. What happened to the great steaks, fish, and sides? Unsure what’s happened to the Emporium over the last 2 years, but it’s sad to see a once great restaurant feel like your average dining experience at some chain.

    The Service was a disaster. Slow and horrible. Examples. They remove part of the finished food from the table, brought the dessert with the dirty plates there. They served the dessert and they asked…. Do you need a spoon? Do we need to eat a cake with my fingers??? No sodas refills. Ri di cu lous

    Very limited menu, highly unorganized with their entry ways. Three ways to enter the restaurant, 2 doors locked and unmarked. The third entry way has only one of the two doors unlocked. Frustrating way to start a nice meal. I watched people struggle with this all night.

    Service was terrible, the hostess ended up taking our order, never saw our waitress. The menu for Christmas was either hamburgers, sandwiches, soup or salad which was decent price, or a $150 ham plate. There was nothing in between to choose from. I expected it to be a little more fancy for Christmas dinner.
