Well, since we came late, we set at the bar and didn’t regret at all! We just got couple appetizers such as tuna tartar( simply delicious) stuffed wing with crab meat( must try) beef carpaccio was good, but I wish it would have little bit...more flavor. Next time we will be back I would love to have a dinner here..More

Food excellent. Service awful. Hard to get the waiter's attention at every step of the meal, and had to flag down another waiter to get our waiter to let us pay the tab. Such a shame, because my wife's shrimp dish was truly delicious.

We enjoyed our meal, I had the shrimp risotto which was excellent, my husband had a fish entree which he also liked. The ahi tuna appetizer was creative and very good. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Go early and put your name on the wait...list!More

Phenomenal food, this is a must stop in Savannah! Sat at the bar and enjoyed the cool ambiance and attentive service. The ahi tuna was the best I’ve ever had. Will definitely be back!

Food we tried was excellent and service at the bar where we satcto eat was very good. The crab soup was superb. Having both fried shrimp and calamari together in an appetizer was very good, good quality for both. The Ocean 5 seafood medley in...red curry was very tasty. Liked splitting these 3 dishes between us. Cocktails were good (Manhattan, Gin) but are not big pours.More

Calamari appetizer. Nice serving size. Nice breading and sauces. Chewed like a radial tire! Couldn’t get past that, paid the sweet as could be waitress and left.

If you are staying in the historic district walk over to Chive for great food and atmosphere. They don’t take reservations and only about a dozen tables. We ate at the bar. Outstanding food and a great cocktail list. Really worth it

Stopped into Chive for a quick Sunday afternoon bite and left impressed looking forward to coming back. The decor is eye catching in a nice pleasing way. It is bright aluminum chrome mirrors and brass with deep blue velvet curtains and gold and silver accents....1920 art Deco lite I'd say but really unique for the area. The bar is beautiful and the bartenders were great very friendly attentive and knowledgeable. They have a host of classic cocktails and some new signature drinks. I'd recommend the Banana Boat, Clover Club and especially the Espresso Martini. I know every bar has one but they really do well capturing a light sweet coffee essence without being too cloying or dairy based. For food we only had the jumbo stuffed chicken wing appetizer but that has to be on your list to try. Crab and chicken really captures the Savannah food scene on a plate we loved it. Great place for a date nightMore

Everything was exceptional! Will L.was our server and he was pleasant, accommodating and personable. He recommended a Jamaican rum for my husband , who is Jamaican, had not heard of and it was fantastic. I had the crab cake with risotto and he had the...scallops both were delicious. To top things off Will talked me into the key lime cake which was moist, light and wonderful. The atmosphere was great our table was separated by a curtain so we had some privacy. Angel came out and talked to us so we could let him know how wonderful Will L. Is and we joking told him Will should be fired for talking us into this great food and now we we’re too full to move. When we are back in the area we will DEFINITELY come back. Thanks for a truly fabulous dining experience!More

Enjoyed a delightful dinner served by ‘tall’ Will. Started with She Crab soup which was loaded with crab and a nice touch of sherry. Excellent! Enjoyed their mango and walnut salad. It was super fresh, crisp, and loaded with everything from walnuts to tomatoes, grapes,...strawberries, mixed greens and a little mango. While very good, it could have used more mango. For main plates we ordered their Chive mussels and flounder with crab. The mussels were scrumptious, and the flounder perfectly cooked, flakey and delicious. The crab cake on top was very good. Their house red curry sauce complemented it perfectly. We finished with the flan topped cheesecake. The cheesecake was very good, but the flan topping was hardly noticeable. ‘Tall’ Will provided impeccable service and great suggestions.More

Stopped in for lunch today, and it was the best meal we have had on our entire trip thus far. We were on Hilton Head Island, which has wonderful restaurants, but this is THE BEST.

I believe they serve both wild and/or farmed based on whatever specials are on menu that day. Can't count on either - menu varies.
