“Classy place for a romantic meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

My partner and I made a last minute decision to eat at 700 Drayton at the Mansion on a Sunday night. It was a good choice. The food was delicious and the service was polished. The only real complaint would be the cocktails. I was not impressed by the selection or the quality.

“Breakfast at 700 Drayton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

My breakfast here was pleasant and the food was excellent. The service was a little spotty and the server was not as thoughtful or warm as I would have expected in a restaurant of this type.

“Underwhelming Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Five of my girlfriends and I visited 700 Drayton on a Saturday night in October 2013. We tried to make reservations at a couple of other restaurants in the area, but 700 Drayton was the only one who could accommodate us. That should have been our first clue. When we arrived to the restaurant, we arrived to an empty hostess stand. About a minute later, the hostess finally comes around the corner and just looks at us with a blank stare. No "Hey!..How are you doing?...How can I help you?" Just a stare. Maybe our group didn't fit their "standards", but we definitely felt like outcasts almost immediately. That should have been our second clue. When we were finally seated we noticed an almost empty (there was one other table with customers) dining room. At 9 o'clock on a Saturday evening, that should have been our final crew to jump ship.

We ordered a variety of dishes from the steak to the scallops to the salmon. The person who ordered the scallops enjoyed her dish, but everyone who ordered the steak and salmon agreed that neither dish was properly cooked. The kitchen doesn't seem to understand the difference between medium, medium well, and well. The salmon was served with pumpkin ravioli and spinach. The spinach was good, but the pumpkin ravioli did not seem to complement the salmon at all. The bread was good; however, our server opted to not refill our bread bowl even after she stated that she would.

The one thing that I cannot complain about is the beverage selection. The cocktails were delicious and the wine list was fairly extensive.

All in all, I would never dine here again. There are far better restaurants in the Savannah area, and after spending about $80/pp (amount include drinks, tax, and automatic gratuity of 20%) my group felt robbed and left underwhelmed.

“A Premiere Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

700 Drayton offers one of the best dining experiences in Savannah. It is much improved over our last experience there. A diverse menu, fine food and excellent service.

“Wonderful breakfasts!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We have been coming to 700 Drayton for breakfasts (served until 11 a.m.) for three years. The food is delicious, and it is the perfect choice before strolling through Forsyth Park. We loved the delicious frittata with goat cheese served with roasted fingerling potatoes. The Illy coffee is also great. Special recognition to servers Terry and Kara-they took great care of us this past weekend.
