Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I will simply say that they left me without food. They served the rest of the table and my plate did not arrive. Then they explained to me that my plate was not ordered and that it would take another 20 minutes so that if...I wanted I could eat something else. incredible, seriously. So I eat whatever they want. It was a mistake by the waitress but no one apologized. It would have been a nice gesture if they brought me something around the house and an apology. On the other hand, none of the employees there cared about me.More

Loved the whole vibe at this restaurant. The staff was welcoming. Our server, Bethany, was wonderful. She gave us time to enjoy our delicious cocktails, apps and food. I had Sea Bass with red curry sauce and added it to my “best ever” list. No...reservations but we were seated within minutes of arrival.More

Impeccable service from Angel while seated at the bar. Wonderful whiskey and appetizers. We had the spring rolls and cheese board for our meal. Chill vibe at Chive. Small space so it fills up quickly. Very few non-seafood options on the menu.

Food was some of the best in Savannah. Please note NO RESERVATIONS anad this place fills up fast. While food was fantastic they are having a major problem keeping wait staff. Sign of the times or other problem?

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.

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

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.
