Thank you for a great 18th birthday dinner celebration for our daughter.
We devoured the Chef’s board!
The steaks, monkfish and burgers made everyone happy.
A special Thank You to our server, the host and the floor manager for squeezing in a seventh last minute guest into our party of six on a busy Friday night!! 😀

Delicious food and good service in the end although they were clearly understaffed (likely getting back into the swing of things after Covid). Would gladly go back again.

The food is very well prepared. We were here for breakfast avocado and salmon toast for me (they did have real maple syrup for my husband's pain perdu -- so many places substitute pancake syrup, as if we couldn't tell the difference!) and for dinner twice. Can highly recommend the confit duck and the monkfish mains, and the crispy brussel sprouts, butter lettuce salad (with avocado and grapefruit), and mussels as apps. The only problem is the small number of mains offered (if you want to dine here more than once) and pricey wine bottles (they were out of our choice of Sauvignon blanc but did agree to substitute a higher-priced NZ bottle for the same price).

Took the family including my 2 teenage kids and their friends out for a dinner here. The timing was such that not a lot was available after 8 for a large group, so it was a restaurant decision based on availability , good ratings: and some pretty pictures on social media. We were served by Stevie , who gave great input on the menu and I feel quite certain that everyone of all ages will remember this meal as too notch food, service and ambiance. A few had the duck entree which was stellar, the flatbread was a good vegetarian option for one, the steak has a chimichuri: which I make at home and appreciated seeing with that entree. No complaints at all!

Everything was great. The server really knew the menu and made good choices for us. The food came out hot and delicious. Great choices of appetizers, the mussels were superb, had to get extra bread to dunk! Wine list was abundant as was speciality drinks. Main course choices were excellent. Shrimp and grits was true to its southern roots. Desserts were decadent. A must do restaurant for dinner when in town!

Be prepared for the bill. Prices are quite high, for example my husband’s burger was $22. It was good but nothing special. My monkfish dish was $38.
The service was excellent. The hotel is beautiful.

We had a fantastic brunch here today. We arrived much earlier than our reservation and nit only were they able to accommodate it, they were very happy to do so. The waiter was fantastic. Attentive. The food came out fresh and hot. It was all delicious. The drinks were fantastic as well. All in all a fantastic restaurant for brunch. We would definitely enjoy another meal here.

Waiter provided stellar service. The atmosphere is very "market" like with a lively vibe. The food is good if not gourmet but it's not a date night place for a special event or occasion. Good for a fun, casual night with friends.

Our server, Kristin, was fantastic. Many of the wines were beyond our price point, but we found one in our budget that was delicious and great value for the price. I had the lamb shank which could not have been any more tender. My husband had the strip steak which was also cooked to perfection. He'd ask for the sauce (chimichurri?) on the side the next time, but in general was very pleased.

The steak (Hunter Cattle Farm) and salmon were cooked perfectly, the fries excellent as usual. Server was conscientious and responsive to all questions. Sparkling water was flat and warm. Good to be out, dining room fairly full by the time we left (8 pm).

Great meal and overall experience. I was slightly annoyed that no dress code is enforced. The guy sitting next to me looked like he just got out of the gym with a muscle shirt and gym shorts. Didn’t ruin the evening, but is kinda of a bummer when you and your wife get dressed up for an evening out. I would still recommend this restaurant!

We've come here for lunch and dinner and had good meals. Brunch however, was a different story. The avacado toast was as hard as a rock - flavors were good but the toast was inedible. We're never in a hurry when we come here but this time service was slooooooow (but good when it came). I'm hoping this was a one off experience for us. We will most likely try again but not for Brunch.

We did Emporium for our post wedding brunch, informal invites for those who were still in town to join us. They were so accommodating when seating us near each other (17 of us total).

Good food, good service, nice atmosphere!!

It's a cute little restaurant in Savannah. Decor was very inviting and provided an airy feel to dinner. Staff was attentive but service a bit slow. Food was surprisingly simple but really good. Definitely get the lamb shank. So well worth it. Crowd was a mix of millennials, older adults, friend groups, couples...all in all a great vibe. Wine list was extensive and cocktail list was interesting. Located right across the street from a karaoke bar so easy to prolong your night after dinner.
I would definitely revisit this place on a trip back to Savannah. If you have a choice between here and Elizabeth on 37th....please, for the love of God, choose Emporium. Money well spent :)

The food was absolutely delicious. I had the Lamb Shank with Brussel Sprouts and it may just be one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. I would eat it every night if I could. It was so good. We came on a Sunday night and it seemed short staffed. Our waiter was phenomenal but was working several tables more than what I would think was normal. Because of this, service was a bit slow. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this restaurant! It was wonderful.

I love emporium, and it's usually a go-to for brunch for us... but this visit Was definitely not the best experience I've had. Waitress seemed very rushed and wouldn't let us fully talk or finish ordering. Brought wrong items. Didn't even ask if we were separate checks or anything, had someone else bring our check right after our food. Never checked back and we definitely waited to try to order extras, and more drinks.
Food and everything else was great. She did save us some $ suggesting we buy bottles of champagne vs individual mimosas 🤷🏽‍♀️.
