Overall really good, however, a few opportunities for improvement.

The good:
- My wife and I both ordered fish. We are not generally fish lovers. The Atlantic salmon and sea bass were awesome! The dishes we balanced with excellent sides.
- Small accomodations were easily made for my wife's dairy allergy.
- Price for the quality of food was reasonable, nothing spectacular.
- Good location of the restaurant

Opportunities:
- Salad - advertised as romaine, but was an iceberg wedge that was slightly spoiled (both of ours were the same)
- Knowing your menu - we asked about the Atlantic Salmon typical menu item to make sure there was no dairy (after removing the butter sauce). They couldn't tell us if the couscous had dairy, and nobody offered to check.
- Acoustics made the room overall loud and less intimate

The hostess station was a bit disorganized and there wasn’t space to stand out of the way while we waited for our table to be ready. However, our server was extraordinary. He took every pain to make sure we were comfortable and well taken care of, he made beverage suggestions based on our meal and first drink choices, and was simply very congenial, easy to converse with, and funny! We wish we could remember his name so as to pass on the compliments. We recall that he was from Vermont! Thank you so much to your chef as well for a memorably delicious meal and for accommodating my vegan request!!

The food is exceptional, as well as the view. We really enjoyed the history of the building. The only reason I gave a 4 for atmosphere is because it is very loud. Other than the noise volume, it was a wonder dining experience.

Food was great. Large entree portions. She crab soup was excellent. ONly negative were the crab cake appetizer. There were 2 of us and only 1 crab cake. That was disappointing but the one we had was very good.

Excellent food and excellent service! I have a gluten free allergy and they were extremely accommodating also. Our server Jessica was so helpful with recommendations and took amazing care of us including taking our picture and making sure it was done in the best place in the restaurant. This is our favorite place we have been so far all around in Savannah. Definitely will be back next time we come to town!

I was surprised by the restaurant service and the quality of their dishes. I got a huge lamb shank and my wife the filet mignon. Both dishes were great and the portions were big enough to skip the appetizers. It was very loud when we were there on Monday. The service was great and it has been a long time I have seen a waiting staff like this one. Specifically when you order wine, most of the servers have no idea or struggle opening a bottle. Not the case at Vic’s. Will go back.

My wife and I were traveling through Savannah as we frequently do. We’ve tried numerous restaurants but this is our favorite to date. Oysters on the half shell were delicious and clams and linguine with a white sauce was also. Had a great Manhattan with Buffalo Trace. We will be back!

I had a friend visiting from out of town, so I wanted to take her to the best place in Savannah. I definitely made the right choice. Our experience at Vic’s was outstanding. The staff went above and beyond. When we arrived, our table not only had the bottle of wine I requested ready, but a window view of the Savannah river as well! The food was fantastic, and the atmosphere was even better. Everything from the lighting, rose and candles, and the music playing was perfect. Thank you Vic’s!

Very good food is their strength. It's pricey so value is so-so. It would be a good location, but with the trees getting taller, it blocks out much of the river view. Then again, it's not a really pretty river view. We've been there before and had very good service, but not this time. Probably a one-off, but there are several outstanding restaurants in Savannah that I'll go to before returning to Vic's.

The experience as a whole was quite lovely. Downfall was that the tables were extremely close together and which caused my friend to be bumped several times by traffic (mostly staff) moving to and from behind his seat. The ambiance was fantastic and our waiter was very kind, attentive, and helpful. The food was very yummy. The filet was slightly overcooked based on the request, but it wasn't bad enough, in my opinion, that warranted a remake. Thank you greatly, for a new and fascinating experience!

We were celebrating my Fathers birthday. Everything was wonderful, food, service and especially enjoyed the level of noise was at a minimum which is hard to find in most restaurants. Highly recommend Vic’s and the praline basket with fruit and ice cream.

Cannot beat the ambiance. Service was great. Food (mahi-mahi special) was mediocre (frozen fish, plate kept under hot lamp for a while). If you go, stick with the old faithfuls like shrimp and grits or a steak.

Food was really good, however, it took over 20 minutes to get the drinks we ordered, and they never brought our appetizer that we ordered. We shared an entree that they split for us which was great, best crab cakes we have had for sure. They did also forget the biscuits that came with the meal too. So overall, ambience was nice, food was good but there was a lack of communication somewhere between the waiter and the bar and the waiter and the waitstaff and kitchen. They did comp us a minuscule piece of dessert to try and compensate for their mistakes.

We drove into Savannah for dinner one night during our vacation to Hilton Head Island. We couldn’t have chosen a better place to eat! The food was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambience was lively. Unfortunately, they don’t have a designated area for people to wait. We had several people standing right next to our table while they waited for their tables to be ready and that was a bit annoying.
