There are 2 sides to this French Bistro with separate entrances. The tavern side is more laid back and was packed when we walked in. We decided to dine on the more formal side which was less busy. The host and the server were both very friendly!! They made a very nice and cold Vesper martini for me!! I had... More

Always enjoy eating out at Circa 1875. The cocktails are good, varied wine cellar and the food is wonderful. The Trout for an entree and the Chicken Liver appetizer is a winner.

How I missed this place on all my trips to Savannah, I'll never know, but now that I've found it, I'll never go to Savannah again without visiting for a meal. Three of us dined at a cozy hightop in the pub side and the atmosphere had us feeling like we were in Paris. Our waiter was attentive and entertaining.... More

We enjoyed a delicious casual dinner by sharing soup & an entree in the bar. An off-duty staff member kindly offered us her seat in a semi-private screened niche at this rather elegant bar separate but adjacent to the fine dining restaurant. We got the good food in a relaxed atmosphere & enjoyed our drinks & the very nice selection... More

On a recent visit to Savannah we stopped for dinner. Food and service were very nice and the atmosphere was intriguing. Seating is a little right which does make for a louder dining experience

Such a lovely evening! The décor is beautifully appointed and creates the illusion of dining in a Parisian bistro. The menu features a good selection of appetizers, soup and salads. There’s also a varied selection of entrees and sides. Our table of two shared the foies gras en torchon as an appetizer. The foies gras is made on the premises... More

This little bistro is adorably decorated and had delicious offerings. I had the charcuterie (sp?) plate and enjoyed it very much. The French onion soup was delicious also, as was the duck. The server was knowledgeable, but not overly friendly (though not rude).
