RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago via mobile

25 yrs ago it was The Library, and it was a spectacular culinary experience. This week we returned to the site, and the Drawing Room did NOT disappoint. The ambiance is romantic and eye catching, the service was immaculate and the food was spectacular. A worldly wine list can pair with all of the great plates. The carpaccio was stunning,... More

Drawing Room is a fantastic place to grab dinner. In a city known for it's restaurants, this place stacks up with the best. The service from the entire staff was phenomenal and added to an already great meal. My wife and I shared the grouper and NY strip and both were amazing. The chef, Forrest Parker, does a wonderful job... More

Wife and I were staying at the Vendu and decided to give this restaurant a try. We admittedly were a bit apprehensive about trying a "hotel restaurant" but the menu just looked really good. IT WAS A GREAT DECISION. First - our server John was awesome. The place is definitely fine-dining and so had a slightly "stuffy" feel but we... More

Here's the 1,2,3s... 1. After walking out of another restaurant due to rudeness, we walked across the street to this place and they were so gracious to find us a table ON THANKSGIVING DAY! 2. EVERYONE, from the hostess, to the manager, to the chef, to the waitress...was so polite and gracious. The dining experience was just first class! Thank... More

We were staying at The Venue, and didn't have dinner reservations our first night, and decided to try the Drawing Room, and we very, very pleased. Right from the beginning the service stood out to us, as did service at the hotel in general. We started off with a few small plates, the Smoked Carolina Quail, Oysters Rockefeller, "Ham on... More

The Drawing room wowed our party of 18 with the menu, the food and the service. Easily the best place we ate in Charleston. Valet parking.

Not usually impressed with hotel restaurants but the Drawing Room was fantastic! The food was unique, fun and very tasty. The chef has mastered fusion food and the presentation and quality are outstanding. Worth going out of your way to eat there. The best dining experience of our vacation!

On our last night in Charleston, on thanksgiving, we got a reservation for 7:15 at the Drawing Room at the Vendue. The food was good. The service was polite but not really warm. The tables were very close together. We had to wait 20 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. It was nice but it could... More
