Unpretentious French is how the restaurant describes itself -- Perfection is how we viewed our evening with them. Everything about the restaurant is pure class; the food and service are absolutely impeccable; and even when all of the tables are filled, the staff dedicates plenty...More

Circa 1875 reminded us to Tujaque's Restaurant, our favorite New Orleans French Quarter restaurant. The size and layout of the restaurant is similar, and the food is good. The waiters were experienced and friendly. We enjoyed the visit.

She said her trout was the best she has ever had. The mussels in a fennel soup were the best mussels I have ever had. We will be sure to eat here every time we come to Savannah.

French food at its best. Everything was delicious and well prepared starting with the bread. The dining room is cozy and beautifully appointed. We forgot we were in Savannah! Go there to break from the southern American food, you won't be disappointed.
