My boyfriend and I went for dinner one evening expecting a great meal. The service was excellent and the wine list extensive. However, the food was mostly a dissapointment, particularly so due to the high price which goes with the expecation of great food. Between the two of us, we ordered the foie gras and escargot as appetizer, and the signature dish of filet of sole as well as the lamb as main. The foie gras was excellent, the escargot bland, the sole was acceptable but not taste bursting, and the lamb okay (one piece was decent, but another was tough and chewy) but again not mind blowing. The combination of so-so food and a non-enticing desert menu prompted us to end the meal without desert (and I'm 99.999% of the time never one to skip on this crucial finish to a complete meal). We are foodies - we eat at all the highest rated restaurants and hole-in-the-walls for the best tasting food regardless of price or decor, period. The pricing at Savona ($300 for the meal) came with great expectations, yet they delivered a equally great dissapointment. We will not be going back.
Pros: great service, nice decor
Cons: over priced food, low on taste
