This was my second time going to Savvy. I have been hesitant to return because I didn't want anything to ruin the great experience I had my first time there. Although there were some hiccups, I will be returning again.

Food: Crab sliders and salmon tacos are FABULOUS!! The sliders have just he right crunch on the outside and yet the inside is filled with REAL CRAB which was moist and very flavorful. The tacos were quite large and overflowing with well seasoned fresh salmon.

Drinks: The It was All A Dream and Hibiscus Mule were EXCELLENT!!

Service: This is where things got a little sticky. I initially ordered the Hibiscus Mule, but was told there was none at the time and would have to wait 10-15min... bummer. We ended up ordering something else while the Hibiscus was being completed. The wait time for our drinks was a bit disappointing. We had to ask numerous times during each round where our drinks were. However I must be 100% honest and mention that during my first visit (a Friday night) the place was not busy or nearly as packed as it was on Saturday night. So I will presume that is what caused the delay with our drinks. I can only hope that another bartender is added to the staff in the near future for nights such as that, especially with the warm weather months approaching. At the end of the night our server mixed up our tab with the table next to ours which needless to say was a bit annoying and put a damper on the experience because of course you now want to know 'How will this be resolved and will my card have to be charged again?' I am pleased to say that the issue was resolved promptly and efficiently and our server was quite apologetic.

Ambiance - The bar/restaurant is in fact very cute and cozy and it has always been clean and well kept the times that I have been there.

Summary - The good by far outweighed the FIXABLE issues and I will be returning SOON!! *I finally got my Hibiscus Mule and it was worth the wait!* :)

Our waitress was amazing! The food was delicious. My best friend and I went to Savy for brunch and we had a great time. I love that this restaurant is also black owned. Please support this restaurant you won't regret it. I will be returning for sure. xo-Sallie

I had a great meal. The crab cake sandwich was really good. One of the owners came over and talked to us and made us feel very welcomed. Server could have been a bit more attentive but I would definitely come.back again. The dj was great as well.
