Pricy for the actual quality of the food. Gorgeous restaurant and staff was very attentive. Only negative would be the food wasn’t to the standard of the pricing IMO.

Best salmon ever! Chicken was flavorful but a little dry. Presentation for both entrees was excellent. Server was great even though he didn’t offer a refill on the water. Great date night!

If we are ever in Savannah again, we will visit the Emporium!

We ordered three brunch dishes to share. All were exceptionally well put together, delicious, and plentiful! Cocktails were so-so. The space is clean, open and inviting with a generous bar. Service was a little sluggish, but then again, it was New Years Day. Who wasn't feeling sluggish?

Excellent service staff. We loved our server Stevie. He was authentic & attentive. Great ambiance. We had the prix fix menu for NYE. At $105/pp plus grat, I expected the food to be better executed. The portions were tasting sizes. Shishito peppers were inconsistently cooked. Some were charred well. Some were barely warm. While the scallops were perfectly done, they sit on a bed of clearly raw risotto. The arborio was inedible. The wagyu was to temperature but over seasoned. It was our first time visiting the Emporium. We'll come back and try again when it's not as busy and with the regular menu.

Service and attention to clientele was very poor. It took us 1 hour to receive a bowl of soup and a small salad. When the salad arrived the server added that they were out of one of the main ingredients. by that time i was really hungry so no way to return it.

Server was inadequately trained and could not follow-up. once the tea was served, it took her a reminder and 10 min to bring sweetner for the tea.

We eat here a lot and enjoy the food but this time it was not at its best. Our service was great and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The salad i ordered was half the size as the week prior when I ordered it and it was super soggy and flavorless. The butternut squash soup the week prior was excellent but this time it was very stringy , I had to keep pulling strings out my mouth and it was lacking in flavor. We love the emporium but the taste needs to be the same each week. We come almost every week

The Emporium is a beautiful restaurant but my guest and I were beyond disappointed with our service last night. When we arrived for our reservation at 8:00pm we were seated after standing in line just shy of 5 minutes while the hostess scrambled to put together a table for a family of 5. When we were finally seated, the hostess gave us a cocktail menu and a four course fixed dinner menu as well. We waited and waited and waited for our server to finally greet us only to tell us that they are only serving their fixed menu that night but the manager will “make an exception” for the drink menu. So with that being said, we left hungry and highly disappointed. There was no indication on the open table app that the restaurant was only serving their over priced fixed menu dinner. Because of this communication error, we wound up across the street at a dump karaoke bar eating steak fries and frozen pizza for our Christmas dinner. Thank you for absolutely nothing.

Decided to eat here on Christmas with a prefixed menu, this is a return visit to this restaurant for me. Found the atmosphere just lovely and the staff, gracious, professional and welcoming. My server was Hans but my table was also touched by another lovely server who asked if I needed anything and brought my drink. Hans made my meal special and truly showed me the gift of service and on Christmas day no less! I am a local and since the emporiums opening I have found this to be a much needed addition to savannah. Enjoyed the bree and gingerbread c.brulee but love the accommodation of my choice of sweet potato risotto and horseradish potatoes as my entree as I am a vegetarian. Dine here for amazing food, gracious service and great memories. I will be back soon!

I have been before and it was awesome! This experience had a set menu. I was not aware of that when the reservation was booked. Drinks are overpriced. The meal was good, however, it was not worth the 400
bill. We missed the grilled octopus and braised beef.

Food was very good especially the Brie appetizer. Noise level was moderately high. Waiter was busy chatting with customers while support staff(food delivery staff) were very good and attentive. Desert was somewhat of a letdown compared to the first three courses. The she crab soup was very good.

This was our first time visiting and our server Hans was amazing. He was attentive when we needed him to be, was lovely in conversation, and overall a pleasant person and a wonderful server. Easily one of the best servers I’ve encountered. The food was delicious, the wine selection was abundant, and we are very pleased with our first time dining. They were incredibly considerate of my partner’s allergies and made sure to accommodate accordingly. We will be back and definitely ask for Hans! Thank you all again for such a memorable dining experience. :)

The environment is always very peaceful, modern, and inviting, but the best part of the experience has been the service. I cannot emphasize enough the quality of service of The Emporium. The past couple of times we had Stevie as our waiter and he was fantastic. He is consistently (in my experience) accommodating and welcoming, and he has a genuine desire to ensure that everyone has the best visit to The Emporium possible.

The service was great and the menu was superb. I had the special fried branzino with coconut rice and it was excellent.
The only thing that was strange was that they brought the check before asking if we wanted dessert....

Our server was great! Very attentive. And they were willing to seat us an hour before our original reservation. The butternut squash soup was Amazing! The Thanksgiving dinner special was so-so. Green beans and stuffing were tasty, but the mashed potatoes and turkey were dry. Cocktails weren't quite what we wanted, and for nearly $20, we weren't impressed at all. We would maybe go back, but stick to things on their normal menu.

The service was excellent for starters. We had the Thanksgiving turkey meal special which was just fantastic and exactly what we wanted since we were missing the gathering with a home cooked meal. Only two minor complaints. We had the charcuterie board as an appetizer. While the selection was nice, there was an abundance of “cheaper” things like fruit and barely 4 slices of meat for two people to share. It was a little skimpy to say the least. And I know this sounds weird, but “charcuterie board” is served on a board not a bowl. I’ve just never had a cheese board or anything like that served in a big bowl before - odd. Finally, the desserts were just strange. 3 mini slices of pie. I guess these could have been personal preference, but all three tasted very strange to me and in particular, the pecan pie tasted nothing like any pecan pie I have ever had and I grew up in a family of pie bakers - it had a strange egg custard taste. Sometimes, especially with Thanksgiving dessert, stick with the basic recipe. But on the whole, the main course, as I said, was fantastic and I would gladly sit down and eat it again to the last bite right now - just next time I’d skip the appetizer and just finish with coffee. And again, our waiter Hans was excellent.
