The food was great ! ... building is historic.... the drawback ... even though I didn't order a wine pairing, I unfortunately, had to hear about the wine pairing from the the sommelier as he described, in mundane detail, every wine as it was served to the table next to us. Again, the food was fantastic but, the noise level made dinner a bit unenjoyable.

I love Bar Julian. It is hands-down the best view of Savannah and the vibe is immaculate. The service was really good and so was the food. The price is definitely higher, but that is expected for a hotel bar. To put it in prospective I’ve been there three times in five days lol. This is my absolute favorite bar in the city.

We had a great meal, from start to finish. We dine here a lot, because we always have a great experience there. The hostess with the braids sat us early and was very kind. Matt was our server, and was very kind, and witty. He made our dining experience a lot of fun. We thoroughly enjoyed it all.

Very nice atmosphere for a date night. Food presentation was good. Filet was excellent and the peas and carrots (scallop dish) was good but you only get 3 scallops for this dish which is the same amount for the appetizer of the scallops. Disappointed that the dinner didn’t have more than 3 scallops. The pecan pie dessert was very good. Overall was a nice place with good food!

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.
