Appetizers were good, desert was delicious, cocktails were delicious, but main entrees (halibut and $55 special Cod?) were overcooked and boring. May be back for drinks and apps, might try the pizza.

Very welcoming when we arrived and very attentive staff. They knew about our special occasion and found ways to make it more special. Great for a special night out.

A very nice evening overall, and really a lovely time.

Service was attentive and timely (though I wish that servers would stop referring to patrons with the royal "we" as in how are "we" tonight. Ugh.)
Food was very good. Halibut was excellent (see below). Fried artichokes were delicious but a little too oily. Bread was pretty good with excellent olive oil. Outstanding cocktail.

A couple things to note:
I had the dover sole for $55, at the server's suggestion. It was ok but not worth the price. I tend to like my fish crispy/seared but sole should be buttery and melt in your mouth, and this wasn't. It wasn't bad--just not melt in your mouth $55 sole. My companion's halibut was much better.

My friend mentioned that it was my birthday and no fuss was made. I don't expect bugles and balloons, but I was a little disappointed that there was no acknowledgement at all other than "oh, happy birthday."

The appetizer, Fritto Miso, was excellent. The succotash with the scallops was strange, with asparagus in it. The veal was tough, flavorless.

The only problem was the chairs had almost no back support —they were very deep (I’m tall and long-legged) and uncomfortable. A real shame because it’s a great restaurant otherwise!

This is the 3rd time I've been to Savona in the last 6 months and it has just gone downhill. My cornish hen was dry, the veal ricotta meatballs were mushy and not fully done and the water from the tea kettle was brown. Such a disappointment especially for the price.

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful dinner with amazing service! Oysters and cheese trolley were great starters. Eggplant Parmesan, tuna and short ribs were excellent main dishes. Desserts ranged from gelato to chocolate cake to fruity type options. The cocktail menu is small, but fun with some purées. Definitely try this restaurant!

The quality of food was not fantastic for the price. I just moved into the area and there are so many great restaurants nearby that we had very high expectations based on other reviews.

The wine list was amazing and the ambiance was great. Our server was attentive and personable. We are outside and it was comfortable.

The vibe inside was good and vibrant. The bar scene seemed to be lively and fun. I would definitely try the restaurant again, and perhaps try the inside next time.

We had a lovely meal and the service was quite nice. Only issue its that ew were hoping to enjoy the full menu, and found out that there was only a limited prix fixe option available to celebrate Bastille Day. We booked through OpenTable, and the limited menu availability was not communicated on that site.

My wife got the filet and it was the perfect temp/color. I got the short rib which was good but not excellent. A little drier than I like.
Apps and dessert were great.

We struggle to understand why people like this restaurant so much! It was our third time spread out over a few years, always the same...some dishes are great (so you need to know which ones- beet salad was killer) & others are dry/ flavorless and not impressive (seared halibut) . It’s a shame, pretty space and in our neighborhood.

Disappointing food tonight. I tried the peach panzanella salad which did not resemble an authentic panzanella (rock hard instead of soaked bread), had no peach and was painfully acidic. Then I had the halibut special which arrived over cooked and very dry, served with boiled greens. For this (and two glasses of wine) I paid $100+. You have to do better at these prices.

We enjoyed everything very much. There were some hitches in the service. Suggestion: When a dessert takes more time, it should be listed on the menu so diners can decide whether they can spare the time.
Excellent food, especially the meatballs!

First time it was GREAT!
This last time the food was very salty.Brussels sprouts and Calamari. The wood grilled sirloin was very tough! I should have got the short ribs.
The food kinda ruined it for us....probably won’t go back. However my wife did love the “Runaway” martini

Sad. Not what it used to be. Food is still excellent but service was not good. Entree took excessive amount to come out. Server only acknowledged it once we cornered her about it. She then made a comment that there was a five minute delay in getting it out. More like a thirty minute delay. We also told the person that seated us that it was our 25th anniversary. Absolutely no acknowledgement. Lastly, server brought the wrong check at the end. When we left, the manager asked how everything was. Where was he during our entire meal? He should have seen how long we were sitting at an empty table or the server should have told him. This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I live very close to it and would love a reason to go back but don’t think I will.
