    843 is a place where food sings to you. Every menu item is carefully developed to the tastes of Jaison and Steve, the chef and owner, to be just right. It is the sister-restaurant of Vine but it has its own flavor and menu and is more relaxed of an atmosphere, suitable for a nice evening out with friends and more conducive to large parties (but still great for small groups as well!). We have been to 843 twice and were even more impressed this time. Our waitress, Kelly, was very thorough in her descriptions and encouraged an appetizer (the eggplant one) that we would have otherwise overlooked and we were thrilled with it! Even more remarkable was that she had only been there 2 weeks but was already fluent with the menu and comfortable.

    843 has a very unique menu and the food was amazing. The duck dish special was fabulous. The service was excellent. The menu items are quite pricey but I would still recommend it if you like to try new and amazing dishes. I brought a friend to the restaurant for her Birthday and the staff could not have been nicer in making her night special.

    I've had lunch @ 843 twice & really enjoyed ambience, food & service, so I decided to try dinner. It was just as enjoyable. The dinner menu is a good mix of land & sea & salads are large enough to be shared. There's a nice wine list & a full bar with evening specials and let's not forget dessert. We shared a wonderful salad & then went for 2 of the special fishes. Preparation was simply grilled with nice sides. For dessert we tried the cheese cake which was delicious - small cupcake size, light and almost guilt free. Service was spot on, attentive but not intrusive. Lunch or dinner 843 is a good choice

    We're from New York and this is as good as any top restaurant we've been to. The food is fun, inventive, and amazing. I highly recommend the ciopinni seafood dish. The ambience is precious. We sat outside to hear the live music. When you pull up, the place is unassuming. It's not touristy and a complete gem.

    We had a party of six, including 2 children (12 & 13). Every item on the menu was explained in detail, including some special items. The waitress, DeDe, was very attentive and knowledgeable, making some excellent recommendations for the table. Favorite appetizer was the sausage cooked in a yellow pepper, delicious. Most of the table ordered the cioppino, filled with lobster, calamari, mussels, & shrimp, in a fabulous broth! Dessert was creme brûlée & chocolate mousse, a wonderful ending to a delicious experience. Highly recommend, we will go back next year!

    We're nearing our dozenth visit to this welcoming oasis and have yet to be disappointed in any meaningful way (once the Ancient Grains salad was not quite as warm as usual). The menu and the specials that are offered are all prepared in a simple way with outstanding results. There is no effort to be more than necessary or to add ingredients for the sake of "flair". Every item is properly seasoned and presented consistently. The dining room associates are knowledgeable and friendly without any airs or excess. You can settle in for a comfortable midweek meal or a romantic date night and feel quite pleased with the results.

Our server Dee Dee was very knowledgeable of the menu selections and made some great recommendations. All for of our diners raved about the wonderful presentation and taste. If you are looking for a fine dining restaurant with a casual atmosphere, this is the place. Everyone paid attention to details to make our evening the best meal we had during our two week visit.

    I heard of 843 from my realtor last summer and was so impressed with this little gem tucked away at the end of a strip shopping center. We took the family again this year and my boys asked if we could cancel all of our other reservations this week and just go here every night! Love this place! Staff is extremely friendly and relaxed (not stuffy). Owner comes out, personally, and check to see how we are doing. I love that they mix different foods that you would not expect together and they taste amazing!

    I have been to 843 several times. The food is always excellent, as well as the Wait Staff. The atmosphere is so charming. For a Restaurant in a shopping center, this a well hidden rare find. The decor is very well done and adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommend the "Beet Salad." Had the Rib Eye Special and was one of the best Rib Eye I ever had. The menu is Great as it is not the same boring menu you find in most upscale restaurants. A Sparkling Refreshing Gem for Hilton Head!

    After a very poor experience the 1st time we dined here, totally due to service, we tried again as the menu and dining room were so attractive. It was worth the 2nd try. Often the case on Hilton Head that service can make or break a place so hopefully wait staff can be on par with the chef and his menu as this a unique addition to island dining options

    This new restaurant was outstanding. The food was imaginative and well-executed, without being overly esoteric. We all loved our appetizers and entrees. Outdoor seating was casual and pleasant but could be difficult if the humidity is higher. We have been going to Hilton Head for years and this was one of the best restaurant experiences, bar none. We will definitely go back on our next Hilton Head excursion.

    Was recommended this place by a friend. Enjoyed the look & feel of the interior. Noise was not an issue. Unique menu with several burgers, but other large plates sounded good. My girlfriend & I started with the watermelon & tomato salad, one of my favorite dishes. For entrees, I had the short rib & she had the lamb. Both of our proteins were prepared perfectly & tasted great. For dessert we had the orange lavender creme brûlée. I don't care for them, however she loves them & enjoyed their offering. The onions were a little overpowering on the salad and my brussel sprouts were a little undercooked. The wine service was a bit shaky, but the French Syrah made-up for it. Overall a good spot.

    It was a very nice dinner. We ate inside because of the heat but they have a very nice outside dining area with ceiling fans which looked like it would be comfortable outside as well. Food and service was excellent. We will definitely go back. The menu has a variety of choices. I ordered the pork chop which was excellent. Excellent wind selection and great desserts. We will try the 843 for lunch also. I would put the 843 among the best restaurants we have been to.
