It's a beautiful place that can make a local feel like they're splurging on vacation and the food is consistently good - but the service in the restaurant and upstairs bar is very inconsistent. This time, we went for brunch. We were hungry and thirsty, and it took a while to get water... Then it took long enough to get our food order in that we debated leaving but we'd already put in our drink order... When the food came, my avacado toast was a little dry at first, so I was thinking to ask for olive oil or something but the opportunity never came... I had to dig in and had eaten it all before our waiter came back to clear our plates. Our waiter was non-existent - to the point that I was assuming he'd gone home and the waiter I saw at the next table had taken over. I would like to give them the benefit of the doubt that maybe it's a slow time and they are spread thin?? I want to love it but I have had great service and awful service here before - it's just not consistent.

The food was amazing! I highly recommend their grilled swordfish with spinach cakes. The mansion is simply breathtaking. The historic details of this mansion are incredible and are paired with more contemporary pieces of artwork throughout.

The food was very good once I got what I ordered. The staff seemed scared of my children. I have well traveled and polite kids that are accustomed to eating at nicer restaurants. Every time one of them asked a question, our wait staff had a deer in headlights look. I was served the wrong entree and had to wait around 8 minutes to get anyone to come back to the table. I would go back because it was beautiful with great food and hopefully I would receive a different wait staff.

Exceptional food but the service left a lot to be desired, especially considering the price. We considered leaving several times due to the poor service. We think it may have been our server's first night or first week, but the situation could have been handled more professionally with an explanation or apology from the manager or really any of the staff

We arrived at 7 for our reservation. Place is beautiful. It was not busy as it was the 4th of July. We didn’t get our food until 8pm. App came with food. Defeated the whole purpose of the app. Everything took forever.

One of the best tasting meals I have ever had. We went on a Wednesday so it was slow and quiet. The staff gave us a tour of the place and the manager even gave us a complimentary desert for our anniversary. We had a wonderful evening and a delicious meal.

Rene was our server and she was fantastic. She gave honest and informed recommendations while not overstepping into straight telling us what to order. The cocktails were very good (although my mule was just a little sweet). The Scampi and Grilled Peach salad were both so good my wife and I thought about ordering a second plate on both. The Salmon and the Delmonico were what you would expect a fine dining main course to be, but the mashed potatoes and the crust on the fish were out of this world good. The pastry was last and it was exquisite. Full of flavor and the fruit complimented the pasty and vice versa. Overall, it was a great night out. The view of the park at sunset from the floor to ceiling windows was the perfect setting as well. I highly recommend this place.

Very good. I had the steak and my wife had the fish special. All turned out the way we would have hoped. We tried the Champagnesicle which was interesting. It was a very good Popsicle dipped in a glass of champagne. It was the most unique aspect of the menu and dining experience. We would go back.

Perfect ambiance and the food is great. Mark our server well paced and friendly. The Young lady at the front just couldn't have been nicer and more helpful in picking the right table for 50th anniversary dinner. Beef medallion and garlic shrimp great, scallops melt in your mouth! You willl not be disappointed.

We sat at a table by the window facing the grand bohemian gallery - the curtains were dirty with food stains so we moved them away from the table, the amount of dust that came from the curtain was unbearable and we had to move tables. We attempted to let the dust settle, but there was so much it aggregated our sinuses. The white tile in one of the dining areas was filthy.

We moved tables - we asked to go outside but we were told they weren’t having service outside at the time. Our serve did move our table to a table inside. When we received our food - medium hamburger was cooked well. Breakfast potatoes were actually French fries and there was a hair in the crab cake sandwich.

Service was awful - once the serve brought our food we did not see her again and had to ask for her multiple times to fill our water.

Delish Calamari and Wagu carpaccio appetizers. My main course was the fish of the day special, Triple Tail , which is a fantastic fish normally. However, it was over cooked. The lamb was good and well prepared. The chicken on a salad dish was over cooked. The pecan pie desert with ice cream was fabulous. I would go there again.

The service was excellent first of all. The appetizers and entre's arrived as should be expected. Our waiter was very professional and courteous. The food tasted fine but not what I would consider outstanding for the cost. My biggest issue however would be the serving size. I ordered the land and sea dinner which consisted of a crab cake(1 ball, bite size, looked more like a small hush puppy), 3 or 4 medium size shrimp and 2 small beef medallions(about 4 bites worth of food), 1 tablespoon of mashed potatoes and 3 asparagus spears. Not enough for my appetite for sure but it may work for some. Was it worth $36? Not in my opinion but you should decide. Should not use this place if you are looking for a romantic evening or if you have a moderate or large appetite. Just one guy's opinion.

Most disappointing food experience we’ve had in Savannah. We have eaten at their restaurant in Orlando many times so we thought this would be a no brainer. The lobster bisque was very good but most of the other elements of the night were not.

The table we were seated at wasn’t fully clean. The service was somewhat slow and they were not very busy. Finally, the worst thing was the food. We ordered lamb chops and they were inedible. My husband ordered medium rare and it was practically raw. I ordered medium and it wasn’t far from raw. The risotto was awful, it was also uncooked. Both my husband and I could barely finish our meals and we felt sick.

We felt even more sick after receiving the bill which we waited for over 20 mins to receive, after telling the waiter we had to get to a tour. We paid a hefty price for the worst meal that we have had in years. For all the restaurants in town, don’t choose here.
