  • I hate Brussels sprouts

    We ventured into Mt P for Friday night dinner. Spouse had chipotle honey chicken and Mac n cheese, which was good, but veg side was Brussels sprouts, which he doesn't like. Plus they were barely cooked. My Tuscan chicken was delicious. It was served over potatoes, artichoke hearts, squash and Brussels sprouts. I thought I'd try the sprouts, but they were also barely cooked, so really inedible. A lot of people don't like Brussels sprouts, but at least would try them if properly cooked. Waitress served our food promptly but never came back to check on us, did not check to see if our drinks needed refilling, and didn't pay attention when we were through and wanted the check. I think she was new, but needs to be trained if that is the case.

    We went to Mosaic for Restaurant Week in Charleston. The owner was extremely down-to-earth and welcoming. The staff was amazing. And the food: really incredible. I have been going to Charleston for 30 years and this is literally the best restaurant experience I have ever had. Not packed with tourists. It was truly an amazing find. The owner said that they have been around for 12 years and I plan to visit every time I come to Charleston. We recommended a friend to go the following night.

    Beautiful restaurant with terrific service and delicious food! We went for the restaurant week special, and every dish they put on our table was delicious. Also try their mac & cheese; you won't regret it. The manager is very friendly and came over at the end of the meal to make sure we were satisfied with everything.

    This restaurant is not in a major strip enter and so a little out of the beaten path. However it really is a neighborhood gem and one I need to remember and frequent more often. I had a light seafood pasta type dish on zucchini strips. The waitress pointed out to me that it was not a pasta dish and I said that was why I wanted it! The restaurant has lots if healthy, lower fat entrees which is great. A few others at our table had salads and were very pleased. I have also visited the restaurant for dinner and was equally impressed. Service is always good without being pushy and so you do not feel that you are being rushed.

    Had Friday evening dinner at Mosaic after hearing several recos. Decided to sit outside since it was a nice evening. They make the outdoor seating work since they only have sidewalk space, but would have been nice for the tables to have been a bit sturdier (less wobbly). Both of our dishes were well prepared and tasty. I had never had fried salmon, but it was light and flavorful. Staff was accommodating. All in all a good experience!

    We were celebrating a few accomplishments, my birthday, my son movie release being sold in stores worldwide, my daughter receiving her real estate license my younger son success on his new business my younger daughters new job and my husband closing on a house. We arrived at the restaurant at the change to the dinner hour so we kinda had the restaurant to ourselves. The staff was friendly, our waitress, think her name is Vicky was very pleasant. The food was plentiful and very tasty. I recommend Mosaic highly.

    We were visiting Mt Pleasant, and picked this resaturant because of the good reviews. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was vibrant and we met some friendly locals who frequent there. That was a very good sign. On their recommendations we ordered shrimp and grits and a pasta dish with shrimp. Bread was warm and homemade. Delicious!! They told us if we eve relocated to Mt. Pleasant ,we wouldn't look back. Service was great. My hubby even had flowers delivered to the restaurant--what a man!! We took cookies home--ate em at midnight. very good!

    The food was great but the service was not so great. Our drinks never got refilled and we had to wait a long time to get our check. I watched as all the moms were given roses (for mothers day) as they paid the bill and our waiter never offered us any. I had to ask someone for one. I brought my parents there for the first time and it did not leave a good impression. If service was better and things did not take so long it would be a wonderful place to eat.

    Went there for brunch to celebrate Mother's Day. Took over 45 minutes to get our order (there were only 3 of us). When we asked the waitress what the status of our food was after 35 minutes and watching several tables that came in after us get their food, eat and leave, her response was the Manager will be right over. Manger should up 15 minutes later and offered my wife a free cookie to make up for the horrible experience. What should have been a wonderful day for my wife, was a disaster. Will never go back!

    I ordered the chef special which included a small filet mignon. The first attempt was overcooked, contained significant gristle ,and fat. I sent it back. The second attempt was almost raw and tasteless. My wife's meal was acceptable but nothing to write home about. The manager comped the entire experience and we left before they bussed our table

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    My group of five went to Mosaic for Easter brunch last Sunday at 1 p.m. Service was fantastic--we had a great waitress. But the food was so-so, and that's not a good thing in a town with outstanding brunches. The shrimp and grits were very rich. The Raines Breakfast--scrambled eggs, bacon and French toast was OK. The bacon was not cooked to order, and the French toast tasted great but had obviously not soaked in the egg mixture, just been quickly dipped. I had the lemon ricotta pancakes. The pancakes and lemon curd were tasty, but the dish needed a sweet component. Overall, I've been to Mosaic enough to know the lunch offerings are great and well-prepared, but I will not be returning for brunch.

    Mosaic is a good restaurant for the area. We loved the food, though nothing we ordered was terribly fancy. Our server suggested a Champagne based Sangria instead of the typical wine Sangria which we thoroughly enjoyed. All in all, this is a good go-to restaurant when we are looking for good food, reasonably priced, and don't want to go downtown. We endorse this restaurant and will return often.

    This was our first visit to Mosaic and we were pleasantly surprised! The waitress was so nice, with a good and appropriate sense of humor. We never had to ask her for anything! We had the shrimp & grits, quinoa lite fare, and the crispy fried chicken with honey siracha. The mac and cheese is awesome. I hope the chef never changes!! Definetly worth the price and our guest from Atlanta loved everything too!

    Mosaic was a great place for early Sunday dinner with the girls. Restaurant was smartly decorated; the noise level was low so it was easy to chat and the wait staff was attentive and pleasant. We all ordered something different so I was able to taste many dishes. The Curry-Quinoa & Shrimp was fabulous! Just enough curry for taste, not over powering. The Fit Chicken was awesome, as was the Spicy Black Bean Cakes and White Chicken Chile. The special was Grilled Flounder Stuffed with Crab over Chipotle Grits - to die for! Portions were the perfect size, but left little room for the fabulous looking desserts. Will have to try next time, because I will be back!
