Excellent service. Excellent food. Elegant dining in a magnificently restored revolutionary war building with the exposed brick and slate floor, accompanied by the lovely strains of a piano in the dining area. Our reservation was timely honored and this was the highlight meal of our visit to Savannah!

I trust my review is not colored by the fact that while computer scouting for a nice place to go for our 56th Anniversary, this seemed to offer an attractive room with a piano for dinner music and a pleasant ambiance,; a place where a coat for me and a nice dress for my wife didn't seem to be out of place. Instead, we found a tourist attraction with a large crowd of people in shorts and shower shoes. The only saving grace was Gail at the piano playing a delightful selection of old standards, and our server, Tyler G., who was pleasant but professional, knowledgeable of the menu and the duties of a server, and attentive to our needs. I feel that the food is overpriced for it's quality and presentation. My wife had to send her Crab Stew back because it was barely warm. My Surf and Turf was a nicely cooked Filet with a small pile of crab salad on top of it. I never really did taste the crab. I will say the vegetables were obviously fresh and excellently prepared and attractively presented. But the overall presentation was certainly not what would make you sit back in your chair and admire it before digging in. I could not, in good conscience, recommend this to my friends for the reasons stated, not because my initial expectations were not met. This is the kind of place that I've come to think of is OK to see....once.

Always a treat to dine here. Service attention is outstanding and so is the atmosphere (piano Jazz in background) as well as the historic location. I have observed from several visits that the speed of service with respect to the time from ordering to appetizer and then mains is unduly fast for an upper scale spot. 1790 can slow down a bit in timing without making it unreasonably long but without making the customer feel as if they're not able to fully enjoy the pauses between courses. Particularly with such great service attention, atmosphere and piano in the background. Price for food value is also a little high compared to other same scale competitors, but not out of bounds. Overall one of my personal favorites to come back to but would like a little less rushed service and a bit more attention to price per value vs competitors.

We went for Sunday brunch. We had Eggs Benedict and over easy eggs. The eggs were cooked perfectly for both methods. Unlike so many places anymore that want to make Eggs Benedict with some base other than English muffins, it was made the correct way with English muffin, slice of Canadian bacon, and hollandaise sauce which is the only way that I like it. Our server was friendly, helpful, and efficient. We loved the ambiance of the old bricks, floors, and chandeliers. We would recommend to anyone that they have a brunch here when in Savannah.

The ambiance was nice (it's a mansion from 1790...). The special breakfast bowl was good, but the french toast tasted like carnival food (skip it, unless that's what you're going for). Definitely not rushing back here, but it was nice to see the place.

Very accommodating staff, even though it was hard to get a table and we arrived at the exact time of our reservation we were still given the opportunity to have a cocktail in the bar before dining. Once in the restaurant the service was appropriately attentive. My wife is vegetarian and the chef lived up to the promise on the menu to create a meal to suit her taste and needs - in this case a very tasty variation of stuffed peppers. I had the fish special, which was a superbly prepared and presented seared ahi tuna, with a taste to match. The Georgia peach bread pudding was nicely washed down with a glass of sauternes to round out the evening.
Piano in the background, chandeliers give a warm glow, food was delectable. Fantastic wine selection. Creative menu just right for foodies. Made our anniversary one to remember. We'll definitely be back!!!
Great food, sevice and atmosphere.
We enjoyed our meal. There were three of us in my group and we had dinner, wine and desert. Everything was amazing!!!
What a Gem
My bride and I walked from the downtown area (about 10 minutes) and found this place that seems to fit into an older city quite well. The restaurant is located below an Inn and from the outside does not look very appealing since the Inn is quite old. Do not be fooled by this impression though. Once you open the doors, the staff and scene are very eccentric and inviting. We arrived a little early and enjoyed some homemade cocktails at the bar. The place has exposed beams in the ceiling and old brick throughout. We sat for dinner on time and enjoyed the appetizer special and then onto the filet with lobster bisque. The food is incredible here. The service, fantastic and enjoyable. Great little find and will definitely go again soon.
Thoroughly enjoyed our food and dining experience on 6/4/2016 at 17 hundred 90. We were seated promptly and the piano player was a nice touch. Appetizer special was crab stuffed mushrooms. They were out of this world! All ordered different entrees, Surf and turf was perfectly cooked, Blackened Shrimp was spicy as it should be and delicious, the Pasta with Shrimp and Scallops was perfectly prepared. For dessert we shared a Chocolate Bombe. Very chocolatey and the whipped cream and orange slice a nice accompaniment. Will definitely be back!
The wait staff was wonderful and very nice! The food was very good and the atmosphere was wonderful. I will be back!
Lovely! Great Sunday brunch, pleasant wait staff!
Loved it! Go! This is a beautiful restaurant! Brick walls, chandeliers. And delicious food! You won't be disappointed!

It was "meh". There was nothing wrong, per se, but there was nothing great, either. The friend green tomatoes were too hard and had so much other stuff you couldn't even taste green tomato. I wouldn't go back nor encourage anyone else to visit, either.
We will be going back the next time we are in town.
Good food, cool building
I had lunch with a few friends on a Saturday afternoon. It was a bit of a late lunch, which is perhaps why the restaurant seemed so empty. I enjoyed my food, we had a nice (albeit eccentric) waiter, and I really enjoyed the building. I'd recommend.

Nice, but somewhat assembly line meals. Not great cuisine, but not awfully priced. Interesting atmosphere in English basement. Have to admit, the pianist's repertoire was a little easy listening. Not because he was playing Johnny Mercer.

This was a celebration of my son's high school graduation - his choice of restaurants. 1790 allowed this ordinary family a chance to dress nice and have a fine dining experience while being completely comfortable and thoroughly enjoying ourselves. Our server was attentive but did not rush us so we felt unhurried and relaxed. The piano player in the dining room was a delightful addition. Despite the dining room being rather crowded, noise level was low and we had no trouble hearing each other. The food was fantastic. Black & blue steak was cooked perfectly and most delicious. No room for dessert since we also enjoyed appetizers and salads but we plan to return for an appetizer/dessert day! Great dining experience all around. I would highly recommend this restaurant to others.

Interesting "haunted" restaurant and Inn. Our server was spot on and informative. The décor was early Savannah hospitality. We loved their Oysters Rockefeller (best out of the four restaurants we tried during our Savannah visit). The "Neptune" dinner crab cakes (plenty of crab) and scallops (sweet and tender) were excellent. The bar was very lively with wedding partiers and the like. We were not staying there but everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Down home charm in a haunted Inn. What else do you need? Good twist on classic Southern foods like fried green tomatoes and she crab soup. Interesting entree specials and overall a nice old world charm of a restaurant. Has a classy talented piano player, too. As a side, there's a bar on the other side for locals with great drinks. Highly recommend.

We love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Appitizers, fried green tomatoes & button mushrooms, were amazing!!!! The table was split on the tile fish and the pork chop!!! Everyone loved the ambiance!!!! Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

We had a wonderful dinner! Our server was excellent. Food was perfect and the exact right temperature, which I am sensitive about. No hesitation in recommending to anyone!

We had an 11:30 am Sunday brunch here. It was completely dead inside, yet our waiter seated us between the only other two couples dining in the restaurant. The tables were so close together that you could overhear every word coming from the other tables; therefore, nobody was talking and the restaurant was uncomfortably quiet. I've never seen another restaurant do this before where they sit everyone together even though there are countless tables available spread out throughout the dining room. The honey butter biscuits were amazing. The shrimp and grits...not so much. My shrimp tasted like they'd been frozen for a while, and the grits were lukewarm. Would perhaps give the restaurant another chance for dinner, but will not be returning for brunch.
