We were staying at the Venue and had drinks a couple of times and one early evening snack here. The room is so lovely - very old Charleston with a swanky, arty vibe. The drinks were amazing, especially the Gin Fizz. We had an asparagus...More

We had another stellar experience at the Drawing Room. Their flavor profiles never disappoint and the presentation was on-point. Beautiful ambiance and professional waitstaff makes the whole culinary experience a pleasure.

We booked this restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner so this may not be characteristic of their normal offering. One main was very good, the other (grits) was dried out and not flavorful. Throughout the meal, the bar (which is inside the dining area) became louder and...More

The chef did an outstanding job. I visited Christmas Day where there was a four course, fixed-Prix menu. The food was excellent, perfect prime rib, and wonderful chocolate dessert . Service was mediocre- think it's because I was a solo diner- but it was 5pm,...More

We just had appetizers as we had eaten dinner on the rooftop without realizing how special the Drawing Room is. Ceviche was incredible with a very light touch to fresh grouper and paper thin vegetable. Nothing like the chopped up marinated versions. The selections of...More

One of Charleston's newest and most highly-acclaimed downtown restaurants. Drawing Room restaurant and bar is located in a thoughtfully restored 1780s Charleston warehouse building and melds effortlessly into the sophisticated, yet chic surroundings. The perfect spot for dinner in historic Charleston or cocktails and shared plates before a night on the town. Locally sourced seafood and produce are the mainstay of the innovative menu that is designed to showcase Chef Forrest Parker's artistic style. Complimentary valet parking.
