Had an awesome Mother's DayHad an awesome Mother's Day dinner!! Food was awesome :)5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGriffin MarketGreat food and wine list from Ricardo, a star, aided by David, his top worker. Home-made noodles are the best. Ricardo has some "dining rules" so you may not get (or be able to get) bread when you want it, but the meal is the best!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLong needed in BeaufortBeaufort has long needed a good Italian restaurant. But don't expect a lot of red sauces and spaghetti. Menu that. Changes regularly and always tastes great.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for the fixed priceWe went for the fixed price Sunday meal and loved every part of the four course meal. While each course had only three selections, we found many gems. The home made pasta was amazing and the desserts sublime. Womderful!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA very nice fine in an otherwiseA very nice fine in an otherwise oasis of gourmet dining. Good, solid Italian food with lots of flavor. Wine list a bit "pricey", but all in all great.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I just movedMy husband and I just moved to Beaufort and really wanted a quiet place with good food and a more sophisticated atmosphere - a place we could be taken care of. My daughter was visiting from Toronto and we wanted to treat her to some great food. Griffen Market did not disappoint!
We felt like we were in Italy...with lovely, fresh ingredients and wonderful homemade pasta..melt in your mouth! My husband also had the chicken. It was moist, tender and incredibly flavorful. He almost did not get to eat it as my daughter and I had to have a few bites!
Dessert was a homemade tiramisu. Lovely!
Fabulous wine list with a host who sure knows (and loves) his stuff.
The menu changes every day. We can't wait to come back!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGriffin Market is always aGriffin Market is always a pleasure to visit. Laura turns out fantastic homemade dishes and Ricardo is attentive to his guests needs. While they do not have their sign yet, those 'in the know' will look for Griffin Mkt on Cateret Street, and locals remember it as the old Sea Island Wine and Gourmet location. If you haven't been, be sure to try it in Beaufort.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding as always!!Incredible meal after the Heritage on Saturday! Tasting menu paired perfectly with unbelieveable Italian wines definitely hit the spot! This restaurant is a gem. Extensive wine list, for those versed in Italian wine (we are not, hence why Ricardo picks our wines). Authentic, handmade food with a Northern Italian or Southern flair based on what you choose. Please, don't take stock in someone's opinion who lacks the intelligence to check the weather, let alone, orders non-Italian dishes from the best little Italian restaurant in the southeast.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat menu and food quality.Great menu and food quality. Excellent wine list for Italian wines.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at Griffin Market and we have lived in the area for 2 years. Heard about it from some friends. I took my friend for her birthday and we were not disappointed. Small but cozy place. Food was very delicious and the presentation of each course was excellent. Our waiter was very good and he gave us plenty of time between courses to relax and and have our cocktails. Our only disappointment was when we were almost finished with our main course, a huge party came in for dinner and they were so loud that we couldn't hear each other talk. Other than that, would definitely recommend and we will be back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely an amazing establishmentAbsolutely an amazing establishment.

The food is excellent as is the service. The dinner menu changes daily so it is hard to recommend what we ate but everything we had was good. There is an extensive wine menu and both the owner and the servers are willing to help with good pairings. We dined on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was full so make reservations.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding andThe food was outstanding and I think Beaufort is fortunate to have such a specail restaurant located there.
