Savannah's Restaurant & Tea Room
This elegant, yet casual restaurant and tea room serves an array of delightful Southern cuisine made from authentic recipes. The tea room serves full afternoon tea, complete with scones, finger sandwiches, and other goodies, and the tea bar serves hot and iced teas, as well as gourmet coffees. A tea shop which offers over 150 teas, as well as tea accessories and collectibles, is also on site.
This restaurant is a really neat concept, the only problem is that it's very poorly managed. We have dined there about 5 times total. The first time we went we had a really good experience. The service and food was good. The second time we went it was not very busy and the service was very poor but the food was still good, so we decided we would continue to go. The third and fourth time we went the food and the service all seemed like it was going down hill. At this point we thought we would probably never dine there again. This restaurant is located in the mall and the fifth time we went we were just really humgry and decided to give it one final shot. When we went it was not very busy so we thought the service might be better. Well we ordered cream of asparagus soup that was missing the cream and missing the asparagus. It was like a bowl of water with one stale twig of asparagus. We would have liked to get a different soup but the waitress never came around until we were finished with the rest of our food. We should have know this would happen because when we were seated we heard the table next to us sending back their food. I would only reccomend this restaurant to someone I didn't like very much.
First of all the service was incrediably slow.
It took 1 hour 15 minutes to get mac n cheese, pbj, 2 salads and a sandwich. The food was very fair. The shrimp bisque was ok. We've lived in the south so we know what good oysters taste like. This wasn't it. It was also overpriced. The above cost us close to $70. The tea was good and nicely presented. We won't return. We should have left after 30 minutes.
the atmosphere was very sexy and showed alot of class but then you look at their menu. they have a fine dining look to the dining room but then you see sandwiches and such. nothing elegant to fit the diningroom. i spoke with both owners and they both absolutley stunk of cigarette smoke which was not very appetizing. when i first went to the tea room there was a young male manager who was very polite and sweet and treated me as if i was royality but when i returned he had not been working there for some time. too bad!! overall, not a great place to eat but if your just there for tea then it is the place to be.
On Friday afternoon, after getting lost twice. I finally stepped into Savannah's. The guest of Honor was my 8 year old Granddaughter Emma Rose. Wearing one of favorite dresses and having on an adorable wrist corsage she looked as pretty as a Princess. We were shown to a table in the Red Tea Room. Both Emma and myself loved the elegance of the small and charming Tea Room. The paintings and the the crystals beads around the lights added a little touch of charm to the room.
We were immedately seated and handed menus. We rapidily made our tea selections. A young man explained the art of the tea strainers to us. He overheard the questions from Emma Rose. We were pleased he helped us out with the explanation and the loose tea leaves. This way we both knew what to expect when our tea arrived.
The food,as well as,the service was excellent. I could not finish all of the traditional tea selection I had. Emma Rose ate everyone of her nutter fluffer sandwhiches on the Teddy Bear Menu. We were a bit disapointed the sandwhiches was not in the Teddy Bear Shapes we were lead to believe the sandwhiches would be. However the purple crystal Teddy Bear Charm was a Big Surprise. This added to the beauty of the day. The deserts too, were delicious, as were the Scones. We enjoyed the spreads available in its own triple container. Emma said the lemon tasted like Mommy's key lime pie and the strawberry jam was one of the best I ever tasted. A box was supplied for all the left overs Emma took home.
The tea itself was a tresure on its own merit. I had Black tea with Apricot. The taste just transported me into a peaceful calming world free of tress and filled me with peace and relaxation. Music sloftly played in the back round added to the traquility of the day. Emma Rose chose Camomille and enjoyed her many cups. She fell in love with the brown sugar lumps and felt they tasted better than the white sugar in her tea.
Emma Rose even took a few picutes of the Tea Room itself. I, her Grandmother, enjoyed just watching the delight this little lady did show.Happiness just radianted from this small but delightful tea room. The smiles from this little Princess was indeed a gift to me her Nana.
Our server was delightful and she told us the room was a replica of the dinning room from the Governor of Georgia's mansion.
After our tea we did window shopped at the small selections of charming gifts and wide varity of teas. Taking notes for our return at another time in the near future.
I do plan to return in November when Emma Rose's sister will turn 10. Also I think A Christmas Tea would be delightful as a family treat. Emma has already selected where the table of six should sit.
We had a wonderful time and We shall return. I will be recomming Savannah's to everyone I know. Thank you.
