Right size portions. Great cocktails!
We went to Saphire for Valentines Day. They offered a special menu for food and drinks in addition to their regular menu. The food was excellent. They had a nice assortment of drinks as well. We were well taken care of and not rushed. Would totally recommend this restaurant!
The cocktails are amazingly creative and very tasty! The price of the cocktails ($10 each) was a little on the steep side.
Staff was amazing and informative.
The food was okay, but expected better for the price.
The service was good except our server was caught up in an unforeseen dilemma with an exceptionally intoxicated patron. She had to be carried out by her friends. It was interesting. The food was expensive considering the portion size, though it was quite tasty. We ordered the hot chicken sliders and bbq chicken sliders. I believe they were $13 each for 2 sliders to make a total of 4 sliders coming in at $26. That’s on the appetizer menu. Overall it’s certainly more of a bar versus a restaurant. It’s probably not the place you’ll want to go for a date night dinner, but rather the place for drinks afterwards.
Best cocktails in Knoxville. I had a Sazerac and it was amazing. We also shared appetizers and they were all delicious.
Apps, drinks and dessert are the shinning stars. Everything else is just ok.
Bachelorette dinner for 12 on a busy Saturday night. Service, food, and drinks were superb! Highly recommend!
Restaurant was not busy but it took our server more than 5 minutes to greet us. Then a 10 minute wait for drinks and the 3 apps we ordered took 25 minutes.
Food was good (not great) but was not worth the wait.
Go for drinks, but eat before. Food is not their forte. We weren't having drinks this particular night and were sorely disappointed. Even the arugula salad was lacking - too much vinegar.
Great food and good service! Quality food for good prices! Good bourbon selection!
We reserved our table, honestly because Café4 was all booked up for our time slot. We had tickets for a 7:30 PM show at the Tennessee Theater. Sapphire had an opening so we took a chance as first-timers. We are so glad we did! I had the Pan-seared Barramundi, which was an incredible piece of fish - highly recommend! She had the Masaman Curry which was a little on the spicy hot side for her taste, but delicious for anyone liking the extra kick. Decent prices, casual, yet upscale atmosphere. Service was excellent, relaxed yet got us out in time for the show. We will be back. Thanks!
The food was just OK... Trying to be more than just bar food and not quite making it. Food lacked flavor. Dessert of mousse was the only thing worth mentioning..... Definitely more of a bar than a restaurant.
Terrible service. Clearly understaffed and it took forever to get our food and drinks.
The food we ordered was good, and we'll made. Price was reasonable for the food received.
Great atmosphere, very cool place, food is great and our server was exceptional!
Great place for a casual meal or a night out with friends! We went for the Pirate Party over Halloween weekend, and the atmosphere was great. Laid back, but great service and great food. Staff was professional and very friendly/personable. They seemed to enjoy interacting with customers, rather than seeing them as a dollar figure (as many do). I'd recommend this place and I plan to go back.
Great atmosphere and food. I really enjoyed myself.
Sapphire is not the place to go if you want to dine out. Basically they are just a big bar where people go to drink. They have a very limited dinner menu, only 5 dishes, only 2 of which are actual dinners (1 chicken and 1 fish). The other 3 "dinners" were a burger, a chicken sandwich, and pork tacos. It was worth a try, but we won't be going back.
Server forgot our appetizer. The food is overpriced and not tasty. Maybe this is an OK place to grab a drink but skip the meal.
