We understand why this restaurant is number one. We went there for lunch and food was amazing. We ordered arugula salad, crab salad and risotto. Everything was delicious. A must in Savannah.

Stopped in for lunch on a rainy afternoon. Having spent several days in Charleston and several days in Savannah, we had she crab soup at 4 or 5 places. The soup at Chive was far and away the best.

We stopped for a quick bit and a glass of wine. Out tour guide that day recommended the risotto and prawns. And it was great, one off the best I’ve had. Staff was attentive and engaging. It is a lively bar area and fun.
