My wife and I shared two appetizers. While they tasted good, several hours later we were both quite ill. I'll spare the details. Oddly enough, at the time we thought that the appetizers were the best part of the meal. The main courses were very average as was dessert. The wait staff was attentive, anyway.

Was seated promptly on arrival, waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Piano player was good and it created some background music, in what I feel otherwise, would be a very quiet room. Food was excellent - no complaints, the crab cakes were homemade and very tasty. Went to the bar afterwards for a quick drink before heading out. Overall would recommend without hesitation

Visited Savannah to visit my family with our daughter whose birthday occurred during the visit. So, I remembered the restaurant from when I lived here and loved the escargots. It was an excellent meal, lovely place and great service. Pork Chops, Nepture's Platter (something like that), escargots and crawfish etouffe were excellent Pricey but consistent with the type of place it was. For another special occasion, we would go again.

The food was very good! The escargot and bacon wrapped scallops were excellent! Our waiter was very attentive and the atmosphere was charming. We did not, however; see any ghosts that night. If you're not sure what I'm talking about, look it up!

I had heard many people talk about what a great place to visit. We weren't bothered by the three resident ghosts, and the bar area was pleasant and very cozy. The beverages were done with exceptional care and even the glasses were chilled for the margarita and martina. The food was exceptional - from the apps (house salad and bacon wrapped scallops) to the mains (prosciutto wrapped chicken breast and Brined pork chop) and the deserts were phenomenal (pineapple creme cake and bread pudding with bourbon glaze). We both agreed that the pineapple creme cake was just a tad more appealing - so save room and be amazed!

The restaurant had a cozy and pleasant atmosphere. The food was okay, but not great. We both had the jambalaya. Having lived in New Orleans, we expected better. Everything came out at a rather tepid temperature, not as hot as I would expect. Our server was nice but less than forthcoming about the night's specials. She lacked the professionalism that we observed in other servers that night.

We booked a table for brunch with high expectations but highly disappointed. Service was horrible. Thinking it was just the server since many others seemed to be getting attention we lacked. Our waiter couldn't have cared less. Could never get his attention and when we did, felt like we were doing him a favor - even when we complained to the manager. Entrees came out very salty and one was done totally wrong. Meal was comped but would have preferred to pay for a nice experience.

Restaurant has a lot to offer, cozy, warm, delicious food, live music (piano) & good location if you want to walk off your hearty meal. Parking can be a little troublesome but all in all after the meal that I had I will return.

Normally we visit Savannah twice a year for various reasons. 1790 has been one of our favorites. No more. This last experience removed the restaurant from our list. Savannah has too many other restaurants that offer good food and service to excuse a very bad experience. Our waiter was brusque and acted as if he had much better things to do. Evidently he did. For most of the night, he simply disappeared. If we needed refills, or other things, we had to flag others and ask. I ordered a spinach salad, the soup special, and lamb chops. My wife ordered a salad and the chicken boursin. The soup and salad courses were OK, but after a considerable wait, both entrees arrived stone cold. We could not find the waiter (as noted a problem throughout the night), and finally did find the manager. He took offered to "warm" them up. Hooray! The lamb chops were tough and stringy, the chicken edible, but dry with little taste. In addition, the chef seems to think that a huge mound of unseasoned and rather dry "mashed" potatoes forms such a wonderful base that most of the entrees seem to feature this--oh with perhaps some steamed green beans or asparagus (actually rather well prepared) thrown across for presentation.
I will simply note, that in my 45 years in visiting Savannah, this ranks as one of the worst meals I have ever had in a restaurant that has pretenses of being finer dining than available in one of the ubiquitous chains. We will not be back even though we will be in Savannah at least three times next year.

It's hard to be objective about a restaurant when your server's body odor overwhelms your senses. No matter how nice the decor, we found that the experience with the server destroyed any chance that we would ever return to the restaurant. As for the food, 2 of our 4 diners had nice meals and 2 had subpar food. For example, the blackened shrimp dish had small shrimp that were not blackened, were not spicy, and had the texture of microwaved fish -- mushy. On the other hand, the pork chop special and the beef fillet were well prepared and tasty. The decor was mostly pleasant, but the exposed conduit and other exposed electrical connections were jarring in what is supposed to be an elegant, old South environment.

It's a lovely place - quite different for New Yorkers!! Very cozy. Live piano music (he was just okay!). Truly top notch service. Abigail was our server, and we found her very efficient, warm, all-around great. She got us a pedi-cab (we would never do that in NYC!). Very nice!!! Would definitely put it at the top of our list if we return to Savannah.

We were offered a choice between dining in a larger room (which naturally was louder with more diners and a piano) or a smaller room (with only about six tables). We chose the smaller, more private room and were delighted for it! The food was tasty (not knock-your-socks-off, but definitely delicious and a good price), and the cozy, historic setting with its exposed brick walls and crystal chandeliers made for a lovely evening for our 25th wedding anniversary. The very attentive server even bought our dessert for us to celebrate! We'll definitely be back!

1790 has been a favorite for some time since the food is good, if not spectacular, the surroundings are warm and romantic and the location is good if plans include a downtown venue after dinner. Parking is usually abundant. This time the restaurant did not do so well. Despite telling the server we needed to be at an event in an hour and a half, it took more than an hour before the food arrived. This occurred despite several reminders that our foursome was in a bit of a hurry. Thought there was a large group at a table near us, the restaurant was by no means crowded. We will think twice about going to 1790 if we need to be somewhere after dinner.
This was our last dinner in Savannah and ...
This was our last dinner in Savannah and by far the best! The atmosphere was romantic but not "fussy". The food was wonderfully prepared and came out at a nice even pace - definitely not rushed. Our server - Abigail- was wonder and very attentive! We definitely would come to this little gem again!

We really enjoyed our dinner at the 17Hundred90 Inn. The historic nature of the restaurant gave it a wonderful feeling of eating in the past. The staff was very helpful in telling about the history of the building. The wine was fantastic and the food was so very good. My wife and I shared each others main course and they were both excellent. I would definitely come back again if we lived in that area.
