    Very lovely restaurant with unique decor. Our server was attentive and personable, relaying bits of history and trivia about the property. The food was delicious, pricing comparable to other Savannah higher end restaurants. Not an expansive menu, but covers meat, fish and fowl. Probably would return, but there are so many choices in Savannah!

    One of the best meals that we have had in many visits to Savannah. The she crab soup is the best in town. Meats can be cut without a knife. Salmon was juicy and flavorful. The frozen souffle was wonderful. Service is professional but warm. Fine dining at its best.

    This is the best meal I have had in Savannah, and I live in Savannah. The ambiance was elegant and quiet, conducive to conversation, the food was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and the presentation was beautiful, and the service was attentive and friendly without being obtrusive. It is not inexpensive, but I have paid far more for much less in NYC, London, and SanFrancisco.

    Food was delicious! I had the filet, but it came out over cooked. Within seconds our server removed the steak, then returned what seemed to be moments later, a perfectly cooked replacement. Our server was very attentive without seeming to hover. This will be a go to when in Savannah.

    Like many reviewers, I loved the art and the setting in a restored Victorian mansion. They made great use of the space and managed to be artsy yet elegant. The service was excellent -- our waiter was attentive without hovering. But the food was only good, not great; every dish just missed the mark. The appetizer of quail had tiny bones in it, although tasty. The soft shell crab entree special was way over salted. The pork chop entree was the best, but the meat was not as flavorful as it could have been. The grand marnier mousse was pleasant but a bit bland. The wine list was uninspired and the by-the-glass selection dreadful. It was a lovely evening, but Im not sure I would go back

The food is all phenomenal from the onion rings appetizer to the melt in your mouth filet mignons....admittedly the service was just okay but all things considered this is worth the visit...you will be glad you ate here.

    We enjoyed the Savannah restaurant week menu last Friday. Took friends there the following Thursday. Had same selections. Portions much smaller and food warm but not hot. That always happens when you tell people how much you enjoyed it the first time. Moral. Never hype a place to friends. It always disappoints.

    700 Drayton was a unique, intimate setting with great ambience. In a city full of great places to eat, it stood out for us. We were staying at The Mansion on Forsyth, so we were very happy to have a great restaurant and bar with live music all on the same property. We spent about $100 for two including drinks but not dessert. The decor helped make it worthwhile. I would really recommend 700 Drayton to anyone visiting Savannah and looking for a unique upscale dining experience.

    EXCELLENT lunch and breakfast! Abbey was our server and was fabulous! I had the she crab soup and crab cake sandwich for lunch. My wife also had the crab cake sandwich. Both were perfectly prepared and a HUGE amount of crab! For breakfast I had the by order omelette and my wife had the oatmeal. The oatmeal was a large portion and was stone ground oatmeal with a nice portion of fresh fruit! Great place, quite, eclectic, and nice view of Forsyth Park!

    Met Rich, the executive chef. What a gem of a guy. So dedicated to his craft and such a desire to create new fabulous menus. I am confident he will. I had the ahi tuna expertly prepared with a fabulous soy butter that made the dish. My companion for the evening for the wreckfish. Discharge was spectacular by felt tr position size could be larger. The chef readily brought a Devine strawberry shortcake over to apologize for the size if the dish. He is a winner. Give him your vote. Dine at the mansion and ask for Rich!

    Our server was very polite and attentive. The food was great, sort of an artsy style, fancy and we'll laid out, with good attention paid to complementary flavors. It wasn't over the top though, still food meant to be eaten. Some people these days like loud busy restaurants. I don't. This place was super quiet, there were maybe 5 other groups, but I could whisper to my date and we could hear each other. I love that in a restaurant, and it's hard to find. The only thing I'd change is that I'd like some draft beers available.
