The food and service was amazing. I had the stuffed sole. The fish was perfectly prepared and melted in my mouth. The lobster and crab stuffing was perfectly seasoned. The other guests at the table also enjoyed their dishes. They had the chicken al picante and salmon. Our server was incredibly attentive and fun. I highly recommend this place.

What a great evening celebrating my husband's birthday at this wonderful restaurant. The ambience, the soulful music, the incredible food, the company of framily, and especially our delightful server Dean made for a magnificent evening out. ❤️🎶🎂🎈❗️👍🏻🎉 Highly recommended.

Visited the Savoie for my daughter's birthday. We were a party of 5 (4 adults, 1 11Yr old).
Very diverse menu from pizza to lobster ravioli. We had the cheese platter and meatballs as appetizers they were a big hit even to the 11 year old. Everyone said their meal was very good. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great place, horrible Service
We were a table of 16, the Manager and our waiter was very nice and attentive. Unfortunately the they took our order 40 minutes later, when the food arrived it all came in at the same time, appetizer and main dinner, they never asked if we wanted our appetizers first, which is obvious. Waiter did the best he could by being nice and curteous. The food and the place is nice. They never turned on the AC, and we were melting. We asked several times, but it was never turned on. It is a shame they only had like 5 tables at the restaurant, so you could imagine that the service would be superb.
It's a shame this restaurant could have a lot of potential.

There were two things we disliked about our dinner visit. We waited awhile before the waitress came to our table. Someone should have attended our table, because of the shift change. Then the waitress kept speaking to us in spanish & my husband doesn't speak spanish. They should speak to you in english not spanish.
Our bill was about $120.00 & the food very good, so we will try the restaurant one more time.

The hostess did not look up to see that we had a reservation and tried to Seat us at a very small cocktail table for dinner. I complained to the manager who made it right and put us on a four top. We were unaware of the prefix menu which is fine but would have preferred to have known about it in advance.
I wasn't thrilled to discover that the restaurant was located in a mall, complete with mall-style parking. BUT... once inside and seated, it was everything that I had hoped for our new adventure. I would suggest that the menu posted online be updated more frequently, as I was hoping for French onion soup which is no longer available every day, and my daughter was interested in the White Pizza, which is also no longer on the menu though it is still listed online. But the food that IS available was delicious with very attractive presentation. And our server was the BEST, bringing extras that made us feel special and valuable as customers.

I am very sad to write this review because I have eaten here many times and the food is very good. Unfortunately this last time I was sorely disappointed so much that we just walked out. I made a reservation for "date night" with my wife. I asked the girl who was seating us for a quiet table for 2. She completely ignored me and walked us into the dining room and sat us next to a table of 20 with kids literally rolling on the floor next to the table she was trying to seat us. I asked her if we could have another table because the big group of people was very loud and I didn't want to have to deal with loud and unruly kids. She told me that the other part of the restaurant was closed (there was no less than 10 available tables) and this was all she could offer. I asked her if there was anything she could do by asking someone. She said no. Bad hostess!!! Needs training. Also this is not the first time I was to put up with out of control kids. The management needs to grow a pair and ask patrons to keep their kids in order if they want to be considered an "upscale" restaurant. We told her that we would go to a different restaurant. Not even a "wait! Let me see if there is something I can do to accommodate you!" Nada!! Very sad.
The decor was nice but the food was Horrible. They murdered the wonderful seafood we ordered. We had the shrimp appetizer and it was served room temperature. The sauce was just a un-flavorful sticky mess. Not even sure where they were going with this. Then we had the Bouillabaisse. Clearly they do not know that leeks, wine, butter and some salt and pepper (aka seasoning) can do wonders. No flavor at all. It tasted like they opened a can of tomato soup and poured it on some beautiful seafood. We also had the Scallops. Again No flavor!!! Shame. I thought the menu looked good but these people need to take a trip to France, or at least New Orleans. They can not cook!!
Everything was superb - cute ambiance and hostess and waiter were nice. The food portions however were too small for the price. I ordered the Lobster Ravioli.. $18 for only 5 ravioli. FIVE?!! Tasty, but definitely do not go here expecting to get full.
Delicieux - Delicious
Everything we ate was delicious and prepared expertly. The coziness of their table settings were romantic. Omar, our waiter was superb. This was a great experience. Loved the European atmosphere. Brought back memories of our trip to Paris last year. Everyone should put this restaurant on their go to list.
Beautiful Decor & Great Food
This is our 3rd time here and the food and service are very good. They don't rush you through dinner. We celebrated a friend's birthday last night. The decor and ambiance are amazing! Lots of outside seating with cozy fireplace areas for couples and small groups, comfortable indoor booths for mediums size group and indoor/outdoor dining areas for large groups. I really enjoyed the music, but thought it was a little loud in the dining area. The owner came up and chatted with our group after dinner which was a very nice touch. We will be back!
In recent weeks, Mario has brought in a new chef with notable background restaurants. Their revamped menu is quite an improvement over what was a decent menu previously. Mario (manager) is almost always on site and is a delight to visit. My only suggestion to Mario was to improve his dinner bread offering. Savoie is part of the Karina chain; I would think they could perhaps arrange something with Bread and Cie for their bread selection, especially their kalamata olive bread which is great!!!
New Chef is amazing
The new chef at Savoie has really made a difference. Each of the four meals I have tried have been outstanding. I'm looking forward to returning and am so glad it is in the neighborhood!
The server (Rama) was excellent and personable as well.
