The Drawing Room is a beautiful space and the art on display is wonderful! We stopped in for a cocktail one evening, the bartender was extremely knowledgable. It is a small intimate space, not a "bar" scene! We loved that! Great place, next time we will make reservations and eat dinner here!

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2016 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

We stayed at the Vendue Hotel, so the Drawing Room was our first choice - especially because it rained 3 days out of the 4 that we were in Charleston, AND it was 40 degrees outside. The food was great, as well as the service. We had great cocktails, and on Tuesday the wine was 1/2 off. The beet salad... More

High end food for foodies. Contemporary and upscale without being pretentious. Wine prices were actually not too bad. Nice decor too. Recommended.

My meal was almost 100 dollars for myself alone. My fish was undercooked so I sent it back, then it was sent back to me but was overcooked. I then just asked for my check and wanted to leave but instead I was held hostage basically by the manager who made inappropriate jokes to try to side with me and... More

This Signature Dinner during Wine and Food week was fantastic. The chef was joined by Katie Button of Curate in Asheville and it was a great dinner. The wines were curated by Folio and were from Spain - to match the food. Great pairings and the wines are worth buying. Loved it.

Excellent menu, and I high suggest the dessert options, especially around fall. The price is what you would expect for a place like this, but the location is fantastic for a date night. Close to Market and Waterfront park.
