We travel a great deal and always try new restaurants where ever we go. This is my first negative review. We went for Valentines day 2012 As soon as sat down, I had one of those gut feelings. The menu was fixed for the holiday... the selections very limited and the restaurant empty. I happen to have a shellfish allergy so my choice wasn't much. My caesar salad was wilted, I am not sure but that could have been done on purpose. It came with a postage stamp piece of cheese and a couple of croutons. The green fried tomatoes were next, 2 slices with a dollop of jack in the box sauce. My main course was seared Ahi Tuna... It was dry and tasteless... the light tropical sauce was on the side, it could save the dish. It was like eating a peanut butter sandwhich without milk . The bok choy and black bean cake, were ok... Our waiter had the personality of the wilted salad he had served us earlier. If these were examples of there best dishes... dont waste the money!!! Best part of our meal... the wine and smiling bus boy who brought the bread and butter. The whole experience felt like a cheap dinner cruise. They included a service fee... I guess when the tip is added to the bill you don't need to serve good food or have a personality. Not what I was expecting for 165.00 for two. It almost ruined the day.
We're locals. We went to The Mansion for drinks and music after dinner elsewhere. Music was fab, kudos to the band playing on 6/24/11. Bar service as below average, with attitudes unnecessarily snotty. Come on. You're working at a hotel in Savannah, GA, not the Waldorf in NYC. Lighten up, do your jobs and maybe your customers will buy more of your overpriced drinks. We'll be back for the band, but that's about all I can say.
We had such an amazing experience here I couldn't possibly fit in all of my compliments in this review. We had our wedding dinner in the Onyx room which was PERFECT! Doss (the party coordinator) was heaven sent, handling all of our needs with professionalism and extraordinary hospitality.If you want to plan a special dinner this is the place. The food, the service and atmosphere were spot on!
If you are looking for a high-cuisine experience in Savannah. This is pretty close. The decor and service were superb. The food was outstanding in the highest regard. It is rather pricey - so if you are looking for a nice casual night at dinner, this may not be the place. It is certainly worth one visit for a special occassion.
Four of us arrived for brunch on Sunday 8-27-06 at noon. They were out of tomato juice, out of salmon (featured in various menu offerings). We waited 45 minutes, no food, nor the cup of tea one of us requested. We walked out and the staff begged us to write to someone about it... they have had it!
We had read a few bad reviews online about the 700 Drayton restaurant. However, when we arrived at the hotel, we heard that the restaurant has a new chef, so we decided to try the restaurant anyway. What an amazing meal! For appetizers, we had the Baked Goat Cheese with Fried Green Tomatillo and the Maryland Crab Cake with Sauteed Shrimp & Tasso Gumbo. For our entrees, we had the Grilled Filet Mignon of Omaha Beef and the Organic Grit Encrusted Tender Veal Chop – both cooked to a perfect medium rare. For dessert, we had White Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. The food was phenomenal with large portions. The service was attentive and well timed. In addition, like everywhere else on the premises, the restaurant was quite beautiful. Including a reasonably priced bottle of wine, tax and tip, we spent $170 for the meal.
