Diner Reviews
  • "Great service, wonderful food and beautiful setting. The Thai fish was delicious. Love all the attention to detail."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "From the moment we walked into the door, we were greeted promptly and attended to with every courtesy. We had the Chef's Tasting Menu with the mid-range wines for our Anniversary Supper and it was a food/wine delight. The chef has a talent for sauces and each course was very enjoyable with the perfect wine accompaniment. The General Manager was very attentive and we enjoyed his descriptions and knowledge of each wine served. The Charleston Grill staff made our evening very special and the only regret is that we live 3 to 4 hours away from Charleston so can not come back every week. We would recommend anyone visiting Charleston to ensure reservations at the Charleston Grill."

  • "My wife and I stayed at Charleston Place on our way back to Pennsylvania from Hilton Head and discovered the Charleston Grill. The finest dining experience we have had in Charleston and one of the finest anywhere. Impeccable service. Outstanding experience."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. Chef Michelle Weaver is amazing at what she does, and she even came over to our table to ask us how we enjoyed everything. It was phenomenal. Amuse bouche were a nice touch. Service was attentive, but not overbearing."

  • "Wonderful experience. Focused menu offering several themes. Attentive but not intrusive service. Overly late portions for most appetites but reasonably priced taking that into account."

  • "Had an amazing experience with my husband. Incredible food, great atmosphere, and very attentive staff. We did the 6-course chef's choice which proved to be a great way for the chef to show off their culinary skills and for us to sample amazing dishes we may never have otherwise chosen but were absolutely blown away. We were also seated in a romantic booth near the jazz band which really added to the whole experience- a very memorable night and one of the best meals I've ever had!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal and will most definitely be back- the crab cake was the best I ever had as well as the tiger fish and salmon topping it off with excellent service"

  • "We are traveling from another section of the country, and I wanted my family to see some of the elegant side of the South, and Charleston Grill certainly did just that! Our waiters were wonderful and the food very delicious! A number of menu items were pricey, and I'm not sure if there was a dress code, but we were more casually dressed than everyone else. I would recommend this restaurant for special occassions."

  • "Wonderful menu. Excellent service. We look forward to returning."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our first night in Charleston and our 25th anniversary at the Charleston Grill. The service was impeccable- our server was knowledgable, attentive and not over bearing. His recommendations were spot on. This is an upscale restaurant and one should dress appropriately. This is not a resort or casual restaurant but not stuffy either. Be prepared to spend but enjoy the entire experience. This is fine dining not just eating. I would compare this restaurant to any top one in New York or LA."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "The food is incredible, each course a standout. And the food is complimented by the first class, friendly service. This is the ultimate expression of fine dining."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Charleston Grill has it all...a creative menu beautifully executed, attentive and cordial service, an elegant and quiet ambiance, a soothing jazz trio...and high prices to match. It is probably the best place in Charleston for a special occasion dinner. We'll definitely return for our next special family event."

  • "This has got to be one of the best dining experiences I've ever privilege to have. The food was sublime. Chef Michelle is worth of al her praise. The wine list is amazing. There are bottles that satisfy every palate and budget. The service...the best in Charleston, and I would put them against any other restaurant on the east coast!"

  • "My Wife and I went there for our anniversary. I had told them ahead of time. They had a nice card waiting at the table. The servers knew us by name. The tasting menu was fanatastic. Everything was done to perfection. All dishes were great but some much better than others. The scallop with blood sausage and the lamb chops were probably the best. The wine pairings again were fantastic and the Sommelier (Sic) was great. I do not think I Have had a better overall experience between service, food and ambience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Charleston Grill never disappoints. The food is fabulous. From the time you give your name to the receptionist, you are addressed by your name. The service is impeccable. Every time we are in Charleston, which is at least once a year, we make it a point to dine there."

  • "The ambiance and staff were great. Food was above average in general but starter trout dish far too small and my son's lamb ($52) came raw (not rare) which spoilt the evening"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "With a unique menu, the charleston grille delivers food which maybe the city's best. The food is low country with a French twist. The wine list is by far the best of charleston"

  • "Love this room. The music, the decor, the art on the walls and in the rrestrooms, but most importantly the food and the service. Try to dine here every time we're in Charleston. Please try the crab cake appetizer. Expensive@$19.00 but worth every penny. And I'm from Baltimore. Pleasant surprise. No old Bay seasoning. Imagine that. Hope to be back soon. J"

  • "My wife and I were visiting Charleston to celebrate our anniversary. We'd heard that Charleston Grill was the place to go, but it was way beyond our expectations! Food, service, presentation were all superb. Ambience was upscale and quiet without being over the top. Wine list and pairings couldn't be beat. Wish it were closer to our hometown so we could visit more often for special occasions."

  • "By whatever standard you measure a dining experience, Charleston Grill sets the bar for excellence! From atmosphere, to genuinely courteous and attentive staffing, to the unique variety in menu selections, to impressive presentation of each dish, we had a spectacular evening. The menu offerings present a wide range of regional and culinary considerations from which you can choose from matched appetizers, entrees' and desserts; or, you can be more selective and mix your choices. The Sommelier walked us through the exceptional Wine List and brought us to an excellent match. A new experience for us, the Sommelier checked back with us regularly to see how we were enjoying the selection. We unreservedly recommend Charleston Grill."

  • "Live jazz many nights. Request a table near or away from the band (not loud) according to your preferences. While this restaurant is within Charleston Place Hotel, it is not your typical hotel fine dining. Several steps above most. Business casual attire will be most fitting."

  • "We asked to dine in time to make our 9pm Spoleto show and the servers went out of their way to time our meal perfectly! Wonderful staff, perfection as far as food presentation and flavor, and wonderful, attentive service. We loved that the menu had so many choices and every bite of our meal was delicious. After dinner we were served a small plate of dessert bites which was perfect since we didn't have time to order dessert. We would definitely return and recommend it to our friends. Next time we are spending a leisurely dinner here!"
