I had been told they had the best chips in town. Sadly, they were not.
The food at best was mediocre and not great.

On the two visits to this restaurant in the past year both times have been great. They have the best homemade tortilla chips in town. Plus, the margarita's are the best I have had in this area. I have and some of my party tried the specials and were very pleased with the taste and quality.

I was told it was one of the best coffeehouses around. It is. I buy beans there almost every week. They must have 40 or more to choose from. African Classic has become my favorite. The WI-FI is free and a LOT of people use it. The place is almost always busy.

They have a homemade Banana Cake with cream cheese frosting that is to die for...

Close quarter dining present an opportunity to converse with neighbors and new-found friends. This is THE place to experience southern culture and hospitality at its finest Locally grown vegetables, some meats, and the freshest of fish. Garden area behind the restaurant was a great idea and use of space, plus the useful herbs and even a laurel bay tree. Well-rounded staff, diverse wine and cocktail selections, incredible flavors of the season. Thank you for sourcing so much from up-and-coming farmers and promoting a healthier lifestyle. Read a mixture of reviews, some good and some not-so flattering, and only have praise for the people behind Little Savannah.

I ate there last night again. I had not been there for about a year due to the horrible service I got last time. It took us 1 hour and 50 minutes to get our meal finished. We got an appetizer and were eating it when a couple came in and sat beside us. We had already been there about 15 minutes. Well our waiter sat down with the couple and started talking. After a while he went and got their meals. I asked about our meals. He said he would go check. About 10 minutes later he came out and filled our neighbors drinks. Not a word to us. And we were drinking sweet tea, no alcohol. Another 15 minutes went by. I finally got his attention again and he checked and came back and said our order had not got in. He would get in in. Quite a while after our neighbors had already ate and left and more people were beside us eating our meals came. And I had to ask to get my bill. He never apologized. We stayed calm and polite. Last night we were in the area and said we would try it again. Meal was good, service was good. But today I was on the internet looking at our banking account and I noticed we had gotten charged twice. I called over there and got the rudest person on the line. He told me they were busy and he didn't have time to deal with me. If I didn't like it call the owner. The bad service and getting charged twice wasn't near as bad as how rude he was. Unbelievable.

So after reading reviews I was looking forward to enjoying a nice dinner, this place sounded friendly and inviting by all reviews. I called ahead and was told they had plenty of seating only to get there and find that it was a mad house. We had to wait to be seated and were never asked where we want to sit. A table opened up outside and we indicated that we wanted to sit there only to find the waiter irritated that we wanted to sit outside. Waiter was abrupt, rude and impatient. He was one of 2 waiters and in his defense he also appeared to be the only one serving and working hard. The waiter wiped the table down, being careful to miss wiping any food off the table and then, in a flash took our drink order. 20 minutes later the waiter took our food order. The sandwiches were pretty good. The order for my wife was messed up, she opted not even to bother getting them to fix it and basic things like napkins and salt were no where to be found. I got one drink refill and the waiter appeared irritated that I asked him for that too. Items on menu were more expensive then they should have been. To remedy this they need to expand the seating area, hire more waiters, listen to the customers and their questions so the order is right the first time and fix the headache they call a parking lot. Won't go back...By the way, they offer colonics at the store below the restaurant if interested..

The food and service were superb. Emily was our server and was extremely attentive & informative. Supporting local farms and businesses is what it is all about! I enjoyed the smoked duck and what a spectacular flavor. My wife had the scallops-we had to switch plates midway through dinner. Nice wine selection and cocktail list: I like the country club to biker bar idea. Definitely a gem. I have made reservations for 2 weeks away when I return!

Used to be a good place, went last night, not going back. Employees don't seem to care about service or whether you come back and were rude to the staff in the kitchen (we sat near the kitchen window). Sat ourselves, wiped our table ourselves, would have ordered another beer and dessert, but no one came back to check on us or offered. I thought one staff t-shirt about "Service S_ucks" was a joke at first. It is not. Spare yourself and go to NEW ORLEANS RESTAURANT by the RAVE in VESTAVIA for better food and a better experience.
