First time in. Excellent from the moment we arrived. Lovely historic corner building, sophisticated ambiance, cozy. Staff was exceptional. Wife has she crab soup - expertly prepared down to the hot plate and Sherry. Had love and rocket salad followed by short ribs. Wife had salmon. Both outstanding. Food temperature, presentation, quality, taste all exceptional. Got away for about $150 for two which included a drink, soup, salad, entrees, dessert (cheesecake) and a French press coffee. If you are looking for an intimate, interesting, sophisticated environment with excellent cusine and highly trained staff - this is a great choice. We’ll be back.

Mediterranean
Wilshire Estates / Savannah Mall
About the restaurant
Leave the ordinary behind and escape to the Mediterranean! Located directly across from the Savannah Car Wash Detail Center is a little family owned restaurant that is poised to raise the bar for fine restaurants in Savannah. Once you step inside you are whisked away to the Mediterranean. The decor is tranquil and the atmosphere is peaceful. This is a great place to bring the family or that first date. Great care and detail goes into each entree and the presentation is food magazine quality. Since they are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner, there is absolutely no excuse why you cannot dine here! If you are in a hurry, you can have your favorite entree(s) cooked to order and pick them up through our takeout area. Either way you owe it to yourself to escape to Troy!

Good food but expensive considering that you have to cook it at the table and it consumes a lot of time. Makes trying to have a good conversation difficult.
