Spurred by many positive dining reviews, my wife and I tried Little Savannah for dinner on Saturday evening. We loved the charm of this relatively small restaurant and the friendliness of the hostess and bartender as we enjoyed a cocktail before sitting for dinner.
We decided to first share an appetizer of artisan cheeses. This consisted of 4 very small slices of local cheeses, with 3 thin slices of apple and a bit of local honey. Tasty, but a bit pricey at $12 for these tiny tastes.
The server spoke lovingly about how all of the meats, fruits and vegetables had been carefully chosen from local farmers. She painted a picture of almost magical tastes to arrive with our dining experience. Wonderful! My wife chose the rabbit pappardelle, and I chose the duck confit. Later, as the server delivered each dinner, she whispered that we would experience a wonderful dining experience, then exited. Enjoy!
So, I tasted my $27 small portion of duck. It was ... OK. Not bad, not great, but OK.
My wife wasn't as lucky. Her $26 rabbit dish was very over salted with far too much sage. She left most of her dish uneaten. Frankly, the portions served were appropriate; it's just that the dinners themselves did not live up to the hype.
Not wanting our server to cry herself to sleep that evening, we later said that we liked our meal, paid the tab and left. Hopefully, the chef had just been distracted by the large engagement party that was in the other dining area when we were there. We decided that based on atmosphere alone, we would give this restaurant another try some time in the future.
