    Our waitress went above and beyond to make our dinner special the food was very good except for the pasta. The sauce was so salty I couldn’t eat it and that is the only reason they got a 4 instead of a 5 star.

    We love Vic’s, our server was Cheryl Lyn, so warm and friendly, we also love the manager Randall, such a nice guy. They are pet friendly and we’re very welcoming if my fur baby. Randall also is a dog lover and showed us his fur babies. The food was amazing, large portions and so delicious. The piano is soft in the background as you dine, which makes for a nice atmosphere, ot was a perfect night. If you’re visiting Savannah, you have to make a reservation… Will not disappoint The Fiore’s New York

    We arrived a bit early and they were able to accommodate us a bit early for a 7:00 reservation. The wait staff was excellent and the food was truly delicious from the starter, wine to the birthday dessert. We will certainly return when we come through Savannah next time.

    The food has always been quite good here, the service is fine. I will also note the noise level in the main room nearest the hostess stand is/was extremely noisy. Although this has been a favorite restaurant when in Savannah, I may put others in the rotation.

    We were celebrating Valentine’s Day and it was absolutely fabulous! We got a table by the window overlooking the Savannah River, which was amazing. Our food was delicious: Spicy Shrimp, She Crab Soup, Caesar Salad, Ribeye, Mashed Potatoes and Broccolini. Totally recommend this place to locals and visitors!

    Waitress asks, “would you like cocktail”? Yes, an old fashioned. Not listed on menu. “Any preference for bourbon “? Yes, Eagle Rare. One drink. When bill arrived $31 charge labeled as old fashion double. Ask waitress if I ordered double No, that’s what we charge for Old Fashion. More for one drink than entree.

    The food here is really good! The peach trio for desert is highly recommended. It's nice to be on the riverfront and see the large ships coming and going from the port. It's a very busy restaurant so the noise level can get fairly high, but take the elevator down to river street afterward for a good coffee and more intimate conversations.

    Typically we love this place! However, when we dined last night our food was awful. The short ribs were extremely fatty. We sent it back twice and it still came back very fatty. The French onion soup was very salty! The cheese was clunky and gross. Our waiter has the worse attitude and basically ignored us the whole time but paid close attention to other tables. Worse experience!!

    This restaurant never fails to deliver the best food. My fave place to eat in Savannah. However the portions are huge, so plan accordingly. We were visiting, so unless you have a refrigerator in your room, I hope you can eat it all. Best She crab soup I’ve ever had. The salmon was amazing. It was just as good as I had when visiting the Faroe Islands a few months ago. The fried chicken was so perfectly prepared and delicious. You can’t go wrong at this restaurant.

    Took my elderly mother for Valentine’s Day lunch. Everything was perfect. We were seated on time and food, ambiance, and service was first class. We had the Valentine Specials which were Salmon withe risotto and haricot verts and the Libster ravioli with grilled shrimp and asparagus. The Peach Trio for dessert was delicious.
