What a wonderful evening! All four members of our party loved their meals which included the tomato soup, cheeseburger, filet of beef, and catch of the day - striped bass. We began our experience with the charcuterie, which was delicious. It was a perfect amount for each of us to fully enjoy. I am gluten free and our waiter was certain to provide adequate GF bread for me and to keep the rest of the bread/crackers in a separate dish so that I could eat and enjoy freely. Great decor and atmosphere as well. We would defiantly return.

Place was trendy and nicely done. Salad was very good but hamburger and fries very charred and overdone plus $19 was expecting better. Plus that they had gluten free bread to sub for roll. They spilt everything (we shared) which was awesome. I liked the overall place just some feedback on preparation

A lovely setting in a hotel. The restaurant is welcoming, window seats, good for cheese n wine, small bites or a full meal. The menu is small, no need for a large mean here! Food is delicious whether you have catch of the day of steak. Mushroom toast a must try! Deserts hard to chose one. There is a full bar so wine and cocktails are fabulous too. Also bar seating. Kristen our sever, was delightful, explained the menu, food choices. Enjoyed speaking with her through our meal, our water was topped up regularly! ❤️
Afterwards the roof bar is a must do the views are amazing! Staff helpful and friendly found us a table, Stormy took good care of us, she was polite, happy, even though she and the bar was extremely busy! ❤️

Admittedly, we only stopped in for late night dessert and it was within 30 minutes of closing. I'm guessing the staff was tired, but they were unduly long getting to us even though there were many empty tables. However, once they arrived the service was good and dessert was excellent.

My experience could have been better. The place has potential but…

Chef’s platter (cheese platter) had mostly fruits, bread, grapes and 5 extremely thin slices each of two of the most common deli meats and two small cheese pieces . The cheese was nothing special one mustard base another an aged Spanish one.

The entree a braised beef plate was very dry as it was scorched.

I would have sent the plate back but the waiter never came by to ask if the food was ok and I was famished so I never complained to him because I had finished my plate.

I got served the wrong wine, but it turned out a better bottle.

The waiter apologized and even opened the bottle that I had originally ordered so I can taste it and compare with the one they served me.

It is clear the waiter was overwhelmed as the restaurant was visibly understaffed.

The overall experience was ok but it could have been much better.

I am a savannah local and want to support the local business however I really felt like management of this place dropped the ball leaving only 2 waiters serving the whole restaurant and it is a big restaurant.

The kitchen should not have served me a dried up piece of meat. And they should definitely take out the chef’s platter out of the menu if they are skimping on the deli meat and cheese selection.

We could not say enough about the staff! There were only 2 servers in the dining room. Ours guy was upfront and honest about the short staff. BUT you would not have known there were only 2 people. We were never left alone or neglected. Random people kept asking if we needed anything. From the server in the bar area to the main dining room....this staff did a wonderful job!

2 experiences last night. In reverse order, dinner experience was delightful, waitress outstanding, food extraordinary. Noise level at times, tho, loud. Barking dogs, inappropriate.

However, prior to dinner, we had a drinks on the roof top bar. Great setting, but service was borderline abominable. We were seated right away, then waited 15 minutes for someone to take our order. Then another 10 minutes to receive our drinks. Waitress got my wife’s order wrong. Wouldn’t bother with rooftop again. Too bad.

Slow start, 25-30 minutes after being seated before our order was taken, but impeccable service thereafter. Our server (our bill said his name is Hans) made great suggestions and kept our water glasses filled. He was attentive yet not intrusive. The food taste and presentation was the best any of us has had in Savannah in a long time, and we are foodies. We had the charcuterie tray, butter lettuce salad, monkfish, duck, and NY strip- all delicious. For dessert we had the chocolate cheesecake, pecan opera cake (like a cross between tiramisu and flourless torte to me), and key lime torte. The atmosphere is swanky and refined yet casual. We started early but by 6:30 (on a Tuesday) with a few extra tables it got pretty noisy with chatter, etc. Some acoustic wall tiles or something to absorb noise would make this a more pleasant dining experience. Otherwise, it was a nearly perfect service. We definitely will return!

I really couldn't have been more disappointed in this place. My best friends and I went out to celebrate a birthday, and there were several issues:
1. There was a random large dog running around the restaurant. Normally, I would love to see a cute dog, but seeing hair shed around people's tables was not okay.
2. The food was salty as hell. We got shrimp/grits, salmon, duck, and the burger, and every single thing was so salty we couldn't even finish it.
3. The food, absent the salt, was good and would have been worth the (high) price IMO.
4. It was SO loud. Not much you can do about that in a building like this without sound absorption, but that's something to note if noise bothers you.
5. Who the hell charges $5 per glass of diet coke... I've never heard of no free refills on soda, and I've never heard of a $5 soda, but I digress...
6. Service was underwhelming. Our server admitted that he had "no help" on a Saturday night, which was frustrating, and while he was generally very attentive and nice, when it came time to pay, he asked how we wanted to split the bill, and before we could answer, he handed me the entire tab and said "It would really be easier if yall just paid each other back and one person paid the ticket." As someone who has worked in the service industry for 6 years, obviously that's easier, but if that's not what the customer asked for, it doesn't matter. I paid the full tab to help him out, but am frustrated that I had to do so.

As an avid Savannah-restaurant-goer, there are many places that provide better atmosphere, food, and service than this place.
