Diner Reviews
  • "Food, vibe and Joseph's service made for a perfect dinner. We extended our compliment's to the chef while dining but will note here again. Cant wait to return to Charleston and will definitely hit Eli's."

  • "It is rare that our family of five is together. We each said that the food and service was wonderful! I would absolutely recommend Eli's Table."

  • "Our evening began great. Service was excellent, timing was perfect. As soon as our meals were brought, that was it. Our waiter never returned to see how our meals were. I never was asked for another drink (so didn't get wine with dinner). Although the food was delicious (tho' not worthy of the high prices), our plates sat on the table forever before anyone cleared them and it was another eternity before we were asked if we wanted dessert. We declined, paid our check and left. Oh, and I had to wait in line to get change to tip the valet. Like I said, it started out as a perfect, sunny day and ended cloudy and soggy."

  • "Food was okay, nothing wonderful. My steak and coffee rub was burned. Meat quality is plainly -"meh". For the prices, I wouldn't recommend."

  • "Terrific menu and outstanding staff. I am from NC and have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner there. All three were great and the staff is top notch."

  • "This was our first time at Eli's Table and overall it was good. Two suggestions: it has warm inside the restaurant (turn the AC down some) and the lack of traditional beers was disappointing (not big fans of local beers only)."

  • "We ate at Eli's Table twice during our visit to Charleston. The breakfast menu got us to visit our first morning in Charleston. The Praline French Toast was incredible! We return for dinner our last night in Charleston. The watermelon soup sounded great, but it was a bit spicy for my taste. The fresh fish of the day was flaky and flavorful. Our chocolate cake dessert was the perfect finish to the meal. We sat outside for both trips to Eli's. It rained at the end of our dinner. The staff moved us inside when the rain became to much for the covered patio. The manger offered to walk us the short distance to our hotel using the restaurants umbrella. The laughter that we shared while splashing back to our hotel was the perfected to the evening."

  • "A relaxed dowtown experience. Friendly personable service accompanied by 5 star food and bev. So rarely does a restraint give you everything you pay for without the extra attitude. Relaxed and high brow? Takes skill confidence good people and good food. I wish the combo wasn't so rare. Loved it."

  • "My husband and I both thought the service was lacking to say the least. There were only 7 tables filled the night we were there and we had to wait for our drinks, bread and just a total lack of service. The food tasted good, but it was not worth the prices they charge. I would not recommend."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "There are tons of other places to eat better food and receive better service for the price. Not horrible, but again not anything to brag about."

  • "Excellent quality and gracious service. Somehow they manage to be an elegant evening spot and a casual breakfast place! Try the duck."

  • "The staff was super professional! The fried brie appetizer and shrimp and grits entrée were delicious. It was surprisingly inexpensive considering the high quality of food and wonderful staff. We'll definitely be going back!"

  • "I ordered a Filet Mignon cooked "medium" and discovered the chef had cooked it "well." Another steak was ordered and that was cooked "raw" in the center. The owner of the restaurant apologized profusely (along with the superb waiter-Robby). Third time was a charm.......and very delicious! We were not charged for my meal and received a $25 gift card to boot!"

  • "A wonderful time mixed with excellent service and delicious food was had by all as the Executive Committee of the SC Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve visited Eli's Table on July 31, 2104. Feedback from the group members included: - A very pleasant experience from arrival to departure. - The dinner was delicious and the service provided was first class. - We were among true industry professionals at Eli's Table. - I found my favorite restaurant in the Charleston area. Thanks again to all the staff of Eli's Table for the pleasant experience and we look forward to future visits when in the Charleston area. David Dover SC ESGR Area 5 Chair"

  • "Our trip to Charleston in mid July we had both brunch and dinner at Eli's Table in one day because we loved the food and also their service. With two toddlers, it was hard to go to many restaurants but Eli's table made us feel welcome and made the environment kid friendly as well. What we like most about their menu and the taste of the food is that its not typical franchise style, its more gourmet kind. Special thanks to manager Damon Boyd for taking great care of us during our dinner. We will definitely eat their again and recommend Eli's Table to our friends and family. Thank you for a great service !"

  • "To start with the good- the building upgrades are nice, location is perfect and there's outdoor seating. Now it goes downhill. For starters, the menu has all but disappeared- literally one of the most limited menus I've seen- and with many of their 'good' items gone. They used to have a lunch salad that was among the best in Chas that they never minded doing for dinner if you asked, so I did. Not only did the waiter inform me that 'absolutely nothing' not on the dinner menu would be prepared, but they only had 2 guys on the line and in fact, the whole salad was no longer offered. Ever. (Martha Washington). They were out of menus, out of app plates, out of beer glasses...Service was SLOW and waiter didn't know ANY product. Won't return."

  • "Saw Eli's Table as we walked around Charleston and took a chance. He had the duck and I had the salmon. Both dishes were delicious. I thought that the salmon was a bit salty for my taste. Smoked Gouda Macaroni and Cheese was out of this world. Wine list was small but decent. The service was excellent - professional and friendly. We will be back!"

  • "Returned we loved the previous chef,sorry she is no longer there, the food was good ,but nothing had a wow factor like before so disappointing Not everyone wants an ale sometimes u want domestic"

  • "Eli's Table serves delicious appetizers, main courses and desserts with imagination. The ahi tuna appetizer was outstanding as was the risotto served with the excellently prepared roasted duck (crispy on the outside and moist on the in-side). The mixed berry cobbler, which was shared by the three of us, topped off a wonderful meal."

  • "Our waiter Chris is the best waiter we have had in a long time!!! The food was delicious - Fried Green Tomatoes, Shrimp and Grits, Wahoo - superbly prepared."

  • "Loved everything about the place. Charming and friendly. Upscale with kind attitude. wonderf wine pairing advice and so unhurried. .truly memorable. Great view of the street and all the color of Charleston. We went back for beignets and latte the next morning."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "After reading mixed reviews I decided on Eli's for date night. Pleasantly surprised we were seated upon arrival and greeted promptly. The appetizers were great as we have the pancakes AND fried Brie. Both out of this world. Great wine list and awesome food make this a place we will surely return too. Low noise level as we could carry on a private conversation and actually enjoy the background music. If your looking for local flare and a quite dinner south of market this is a must."

  • "The service was excellent. Chris was helpful and attentive. The food was very good. A thoroughly enjoyable evening."

  • "Our first visit to Eli's Table. Quite impressed that the manager purposefully came to our table and welcomed us by name. Staff was very gracious and accomodating. While our steaks were somewhat average, we will return and would recommend Eli's."

  • "I was visiting from out of town and first visited Eli's Table on a whim one afternoon for a drink. I was so impressed with the welcoming, efficient service, good prices and well-crafted cocktails, I took two friends back later that night. They, too, were impressed and can't wait to try the food. Our visits were in between meals, so we never got the chance to try the food, but it looked delicious (and I couldn't submit this review without a food rating). Ask for Robby or Logan to serve you - you won't regret it."

  • "Our party of 6 thought our different dishes were great! The Fondue is a must for a starter. Robby Jenks, our waiter, was very attentive and friendly. We had free valet parking and the restaurant offered to drop us off downtown so that we could walk around and not have to park our car again. Great Place!"

  • "Eli's Table is a pleasant change from the causal, noisy atmosphere of many Charleston restaurants. The tables have white tablecloths, and it is possible to have a conversation without shouting. It is not stuffy, so you can still dress casually. Chris was an attentive waiter and even provided an extra napkin for my husband to dry his face after being caught in the rain. The food was excellent. The spiced salmon melted in my mouth. My husband detests salmon, but he even said it was delicious. Bob had the chipolte chicken. It came off the bone easily, but was still moist. We shared a summer salad and a berry cobbler. The berry cobbler came in a pot with a large scoop of ice cream. It was plenty for two. It also serves breakfast and lunch."

  • "Our food was good, but we saw 3 palmetto bugs (flying roaches) running across the restaurant while we were there. Kind of ruined the romantic experience my wife and I were going for."

  • "Wasn't sure what to expect aside from what was mentioned in OT. We were greeted warmly and as dinner went on the service staff became friendlier and more conversational (assumingly bc they were managing a busy dinner service). Our appetizers - Fried Green Tom & Mussels - we're good and entree of Salmon over a sweet potato hash was divine. We ordered Salmon and changed to try the fish special but weren't big fans of the preparation. ET brought us the replacement very quickly. We enjoyed a lovely group of Bostoners who shared a dining room. Overall, a great experience."

  • "The food was fantastic, and the service was impeccable and personable. The house mojito reminded me of the beach in Barcelona. Great job to Chris and the rest of the Eli staff!"

  • "We're local and brought three out of town guests to Eli's Table. We ordered drinks, appetizers, and entrees. Everyone was very happy with what they ordered. In fact, there was a lot of food sharing and exclamations of "you gotta try this". Besides the great food, they have free valet parking on weekend evenings (free except the part about needing to tip the valet parking guy), which was really helpful with threatening weather, a handicapper person in tow, and the difficulty in finding parking in downtown. Only one minor little gripe. The online menu was not up to date. Apparently, not to long ago they switched to a summer menu and that wasn't what is on their own website."

  • "What a fun foodie delight. Living in Charleston you love the opportunity to sit outside and enjoy the cool night breeze. So right off the bat we were in love. Then our server greeted us with warmth and kindness. He was so knowledgeable about what was to be prepared and encouraged us to try the Fried Green Tomatoes. Which I was very grateful for. They were delicious. The balsamic reduction makes the dish sing a brilliant tomato aria. Even our Toast Points were fantastic. Of course the main course was the true star. I had the Crispy Half Duck over warm noodles. The skin was perfectly crisp with bursts of flavor. My husband had the gigantic Pork Chop, which he marveled over and devoured. Overall we had a lovely evening. We will surely return."
