Poor service by general manager and extremely long wait to get water, get orders in and to get the meal. Ridiculous that general manager didn’t address it when she went to table.

I eat kosher, when I see potato salad on the menu I do not think there will be pork in it. All I can say is that it should state that there is pork in it on the menu. They made it without the pork pretty fast but the time I got it my date had finished his meal.

I don’t often write a review but for this place I must. First off, our server was amazing. Rosie was so friendly and spent time talking with our kids when she didn’t have to. She let them tell her stupid, crazy stories. The food- fabulous. I would highly suggest the Pineapple Fried Rice and “The Burger”. What a great way to end our last night in Savannah. Great food. Great service. Great location.

Our server was very engaging and helpful with menu selections. We ate on the rooftop, a great setting if it’s not crazy hot and muggy. The food was excellent and there’s were some good vegetarian substitutes, a little on the hot side in terms of spice but very interesting flavor combinations. The specialty drink menu is creative- I had the Queen Bee. Watch the step on the rooftop patio!

This was a good choice for a night out. Location is great. Service was very good. Food was excellent. We were seated in a small dining room upstairs with just 4 tables…pluses and minuses. Much brighter and some view. Room itself kinda blah and upholstered chairs need a refresh.

Ambiance was good. Hostess and waitress were very nice, personal, and great representatives of The Fitzroy. Unfortunately it ends there. Gastropub prices at a bar level quality of food.
1. My chicken schnitzel came out 6 minutes ahead of my wife and kids meal. $21
2. I had to order this because the restaurant had been out of the mushroom bolognese for the last two days (still on their menu) $20
3 . Then my son’s roast chicken came out. It was actually well presented and tasted very good. The marinade was a nice citrus herb blend. $26
4. About 4 minutes later my wife and daughter’s steak and frites plates arrived. $32 each. The fries were good but not hot - warm. The medium steak was not - more well done. The steak was covered in a poorly executed Béarnaise sauce. It needed more tarragon, lemon, pepper and less salt.

If you are going to charge $32 a plate for something you get it right and not sort of close.

I’ve previously worked in restaurants (granted a long time ago now). I still cook for my family. Our poor experience at The Fitzroy this past Monday is on the Kitchen Manager (or Assistant ) The chef and team and overall the GM. There was a new waitress that was clearly struggling to get the kitchen to not even support her - at least cooperate with her. And clearly no one was spot checking dishes going out the door. It was a Monday night not a Saturday night. I would not recommend at all. Time for a team meeting to figure it out.

My choice for our 2nd anniversary that I had hoped was gonna be amazing but fell flat. There at 5pm reservation seated promptly. Waitress was pleasant and repeatedly apologetic for our food delay post small plate. It took till 620pm>45min for the large plate entrée the steak & fries which was full of fat pieces then my fish of the day was barely Luke warm. Once Waitress suggests dessert it was a big Ole no for us and we asked for the check. Husband goes to restroom, located a few steps away and I hear someone in the restroom yell as he's opened the restroom door, "I'm in here ". It was an employee standing in there smoking something strong that was too occupied with locking the door. We immediately headed past kitchen to exit down the steps and I witnessed a cook and 2 waitress eating food from the plated order ready shelf and 1 leaning against the wall in the kitchen eating food. One of them followed me down the steps craving the food in him mouth before we made it to the bottom. I was totally disgusted and couldn't believe we just spent over $120 in this place. I just wanted to get out of that place so no I didn't speak to a managerat the time. COVID is still prevalent in areas and so are other forms of diseases. I am a first responder doing my best to keep my surroundings clean and to witness all that was just unbelievable to me. I had intended to speak to management but they are closed on Tuesday &Wednesday. I just called and got a recording so just be careful if you decide to eat here. We practice patience for the reward is supposed to be greater. Not this time!! I hope this establishment sees this and makes some changes asap. This happened Monday June 7th 2021 5:15 reservation.

Mushroom Bolognese came barely warm, room temperature at best. Martini glasses (had a mock tail) very small and not filled to the top. Waited about 30 minutes between entree and dessert course. Waitress did not come back to check on drinks during that time or take the dessert off the bill.

Only disappointment was that the fish for the fish and chips was swordfish. Never thought to ask as was expecting a fresh local fish We are from north shore of Boston so swordfish is local. It was also undercooked. Probably better to stick to local fare. Great server, fun place

Dinner for four and cocktails were delicious, and most of our food was great! The two chicken schnitzels were sadly, very dry, and bland. We would have told them but our server disappeared. We had enjoyed the appetizers so just asked for dessert and was advised
they had closed
30 minutes prior. Wow. No check in, or offer of anything else but our bill.

First time here. The reviews were shaky but we kept our reservation. They are under new management as of very recently. Our table had some issues with the food and service but the manager was incredibly gracious. She said she just took over and is trying to sort out all of the obstacles. She handled our issues with impeccable attitude! We are from out of town and she offered us a return visit! We would return just based on her attitude!
We look forward to coming back later this year!

We were seated on the rooftop deck so the noise level was much more quiet than the downstairs bar/dining room. We were greeted by our waitress who was very pleasant, but she started off by telling us about all the items (food and beer) that were not available that night. The pappardelle for the mushroom bolognese was not available but at least in this case fettuccini was substituted. She knew very little about the beer selections that were available.
When dinner was served, my date requested bread with his meal and was told by the waitress that they had none. During dinner we heard people at the next table place their order only to have the waitress return to inform them that one of the items ordered was no longer available.
I understand that there have been major challenges for restaurants due to Covid 19 BUT.....this restaurant has a very limited menu to begin with, and if they are open for business, I feel they should have all menu items available.
As far as food quality and taste, we felt everything was good... but not memorable.

Seated on upstairs patio. Ordered Brussel sprouts and Korean BBQ short rib appetizers. Brussels appetizer consisted of a total of 3 sprouts cut in half, which were very undercooked!. $13 for 3 underwhelming sprouts is not what I call value for money. The Korean BBQ lettuce wraps consisted of limp lettuce leaves, 2 spoonfuls of meat and a spoonful of coleslaw. Lettuce too tired to ‘wrap’ and meat was tepid and flavorless. We observed two tables send their entrees back and another couple left without ordering. We decided to cut our losses after the ‘Unappetizers’ and left also. So disappointing

Reservation for 5:45. Apps came at 6:15...they were delicious. Dinner didn't come for another 25 minutes, and when it did, it was cold. I ordered the Chicken Schnitzel...but it was chicken tenders way over cooked, no seasoning, with dabs of gravy. It was supposed to come with German potato salad, but it didn't. It came instead with (cold) fingerlings. My wife had the fish and chips, and the fish wasn't fried, it was oven cooked, and, wait for it...cold. This used to be an awesome place, but it was really off last night. Our server was wonderful, and the manager didn't charge for the dinners, AND they sent us out into the otherwise nice evening with a free glass of wine...so they did all they could. Miss the old Fitzroy.

Really bad experience. Seated at a table in the middle row. Fe,t like we were in a heavily trafficked area because a service persons clothing continually brushed me as she frequently passed us in her job. Food: My house salad was not good. Peaches were sour. Chicken skins had no taste. Both of us had chicken snitzel. Overcooked! Very dry. Potato salad had very dry fingerlings that were over cooked. I told waitress. No helpful response. Also— no desserts that night! Avoid this place.

Atmosphere was outstanding. Table was ready right when we arrived. Highly recommend the mushroom bolognese and tequila old fashioned. Couple of misses on the food (melon sunflower salad wasn’t too flavorful and the fried rice was very oily) but completely understand that they’re getting back after a rough year so would give it another try. Good for a fun friends night out.
