This was our first visit to Forsyth Mansion and we live in Savannah’s Historic District - our expectations were pretty high. But, unfortunately it wasn’t exactly what we expected for a $70 not including tip breakfast. My husband and I both got avocado toast (made vegan) so it was just one piece of thick toast and smashed avocado and a fruit plate to share. My husband had coffee, mimosa and I had a watermelon juice. Our fruit plate consisted of lemons(?),one banana, one mandarin,one kiwi and a few strawberries I believe it was about $15.. it was served about 10 minutes after the avocado toast came out. The avocado toast was decent but definitely not worth $15. Our waitress and her trainee were sweet and friendly. Also, oddly the restaurant was empty and for some reason the back of my booth was up against where the water and silverware station so every time the waiter opened the drawers my seat was banged. We are typically not picky - but we were just a little let down especially because he live so close by but maybe if we ever come back we’ll try for a different time of day - dinner perhaps.

Beautiful venue. Did the tasting menu. Portions were too large for a tasting menu, only ate about half of each dish between two people. Dishes were reflective of local quizzing but missed any special pizzazz. Wine pairings were average.

This was one of the best dining experiences we have had. We were celebrating my birthday and it was certainly made special by 700 Drayton. We were seated in the sunroom (which we had all to ourselves) overlooking Forsyth Park. Our server was OUTSTANDING. Our food was OUTSTANDING. We did the 5 course meal with wine. Be prepared to eat A LOT! We were not, and we didn't eat everything or drink all the wine, but it was excellent and a perfect way to spend my birthday dinner. Great place for a special occasion.

We sat in glass room closest to the fountain and there were only 4 tables in the entire room. 2 were occupied by couples finished their meals but who apparently came to chat during dinner. They were carrying on conversation at such LOUD volume that we could hear every detail from how one woman had a person die on her and then she proceeded to get up and get on her cell phone and go to the other table and call someone and repeat word for word what the person from the other table was telling her to someone on her phone about having been a rescuer in Bosnia. We thought they’d leave because they were done, but no such luck. They were there until we had finished our meal and were all into our dessert order. As for the food, the whipped feta and cornbread were amazing. The Grouper and Short Rib main dishes failed to impress for sure. The blackberry tart was bland. Overall nothing to write home about and we won’t return even though we are staying at the property. A huge disappointment. And the NOISE just RUINED it all. The service was adequate but nothing special and I would have expected a fine restaurant to ask the other patrons to stop making so much noise and shouting across tables in such an establishment.

Great meal and service! Food was delicious, the waitress was super friendly and attentive. Great ambiance. Only con (for lightweights) is if you do the wine pairing experience, they give a heavy pour! All jokes aside, highly recommend.

700 Drayton is a very nice restaurant. When we first sat down, the table next to us was at the midst of finishing up their meal and they were very noisy/ loud (as in most cases when you have drank wine/ alcohol) but when they left, it was quiet and nice and we can hear each other (we were a party of four). The staff/food in general was very good.

The Mansion is beautiful. We had a reservation and sat on the enclosed porch with a view of the park and adjoining hotel. We were seated next to the exit to the adjoining hotel. Not sure why they seat people by an exit when other tables are available, but it was not a big deal. I ordered a French 75 cocktail that was not good. It was served warm. The food was okay. The service was slow but the waitress was extremely nice. There are many better options for dinner in Savannah.

Truthful and objective review of the Savannah experience. 5 courses with wine pairing. Our waiter ‘Bailey’ was very welcoming and interactive. He suggested one if two approaches to our dinner, either knowing what was coming or surprise. We chose not to know what was coming. It was the best experience because there was anticipation for each course. First, deconstructed deviled egg mousse. Paired with fresh focaccia bread and vegetables. Great! Second, Bibb lettuce with chipotle dressing and pork belly again great! The dressing has a slight heat which pairs well with the wine selection. Also, country ham charcuterie with shaved turnip, red pepper, house pickles and house ground mustard again with fresh toasted bread. Great! The wine selection pairs nicely with saltiness of the ham, pickles and mustard. We enjoyed these courses thoroughly. Third, Fresh Grilled shrimp and pork belly over red peppered risotto. This is the point the experience fell short. The 5 shrimp were flavorful and cooked to perfection however, the risotto was very overdone and watery. There was also a green pepper and celery compote in the mix. We did not enjoy this it was sour and between the overdone risotto and the celery it was a miss. Last course was a bone-in short rib over greens with peach chunks. This also fell short. The short rib by itself was excellent from flavor perspective and tenderness( fell off the bone). The accompaniment was not enjoyable and we simply picked the meat out. Dessert was very nice we ordered an additional item from the menu as well. Overall, the wine pairing was spectacular and worth the added price. The meal fell short , conservatively 75/100 points. The ambience was great. Will give this another chance in the future, I hope it improves.

Venue is lovely but the menu is not accurate and the waitstaff isn’t helpful in explaining it. Three of us had pretty good meals but mine was very disappointing. It was listed as pork roast but was at least half thick fat. When I sent it back chef said it was pork belly and that’s the way it was. If I had known it was pork belly I would not have ordered it.
Salad was Bibb lettuce with blue cheese and bacon yet blue cheese was missing. When I asked waitress said they were out of it. The time to tell me a major ingredient is unavailable is when I order it not when I complain.
Manager offered another meal but the rest of my party was already finished. They didn’t charge for the entree but did for the salad which was fair since I did eat it
By the way, bread is not included. We ordered a $13 cast iron cornbread- it was a 5” by 1” disc. It was good so I guess we should have ordered one for each of us
I went home still hungry but had a delicious praline from Savannah Candy Company

We were expecting 4 star experience. Seated by an entrance exit for public. Dozens of restaurant and hotel guests past by us to the door beside our table. Mentioned how busy it was to waiter(excellent service). Stated oh yes this is an entrance exit for public. Ruined our experience not to mention Covid. We spoke to management who apologized snd wanted to make it right im sure with future vouchers. We refrained to accept anything like that. We just wanted them to stop serving at that table. No 4?star experience. Food was not impressive. Expected the treatment equil to atmosphere and pricing. Took a walk in the park. On the way back past the restaurant we could see inside where we sat. Another couple was seated at the same table…..

We hosted a friend from Palmetto Bluffs—by way of Baltimore—who had never been to 700 Drayton. While we decided to share the single crab cake to see if it met Maryland standards, we agreed that while lacking Old Bay it was delicious. Our server, Alexis, when asked about the Short Ribs, extolled its’ wonderful flavors and solidified its’ reputation as a comfort food. Two orders, where nothing remained on the plate, confirmed her description. My grouper was flavorful and, as with the 2 others, nothing remained but the porcelain.
Dessert was Cocoa Cola cake for 2 and the bread pudding, with a great cup of coffee. A most enjoyable way to spend a Friday evening; great food and wonderfully relaxing surroundings!
