    S.n.o.b became the favorite restaurant of the whole family, the food is great and we will bring here the rest of the family when they will come down to the south to visit, great place to eat.I recommend carpaccio, my husband had the duck and it was very tender and juicy,my son had the tenderloin also very tender,all of the dessert are also delicious.I live here so I can come anytime I want but I keep this place for special occasion.

    We found ourselves passing through Charleston with enough time for a leisurely lunch. We booked SNOB on short notice and are so glad we chose it! Excellent lobster and shrimp salad: my husband had a fabulous piece of swordfish - perfectly grilled and tender. Seating was a little crowded (some of the 2-tops are very close to bar and bathrooms; ask not to be seated there) and very 'vibrant' noise level, but we could still chat easily. Service was excellent, professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

    After much anticipation, I have to say my visit to SNOB was nothing short of mediocre. The food appeal doesn't match the ambiance. Slow, slow kitchen times with lackluster service was in order as well. Disappointed that after over an hour wait for the main entree there wasn't even as much acknowledgement from mgmt. Food was good, but not worth the price tag.

  • My Last Restaurant Week Meal

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    It's happened before. You order all three courses up front and then you get the bum's rush. Our waiter brought our wine, took our order and returned less than five minutes later with our first course. I could sense him watching us throughout the meal so that the minute we finished one course, it was cleared and five minutes later, the next course appeared. We realized soon after we were seated that we were going to be finished our meal within an hour. The food was good, but the feeling that the restaurant was trying to turn our table over again as soon as possible definitely spoiled the meal.

    This was our first trip to S.N.O.B. and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambiance. Our server was fantastic and we loved the atmosphere; some people were dressed up and some were in jeans and flip flops. We would definitely eat at S.N.O.B. again and would highly recommend it to our friends from out of town. We chose this restaurant because it was Restaurant Week in Charleston and it was a great opportunity to try a new place :) The She Crab soup was awesome!

    The salads were the highlight--the pear salad was excellent with a glazed pear, spring mix lettuce, pistachios, blue cheese and a great dressing. The chilled shrimp and lobster salad included the best heirloom tomato slices that I have had all season. My colleague ordered it as a starter but it was so good, that I went back the next day and had it for lunch. Lively atmosphere. Good service. My colleague and I are in Charleston for work every couple of weeks and try a new restaurant each time--this is our favorite so far!

    I have eaten here several times. The first time was restaurant week last year and it was incredible. This meal was bland. The lemon grits were lumpy and the flavor was too strong. The snapper was perfectly cooked but was not seasoned well. Others in the group said their meals were fair but not wonderful. My appetizer salad was mediocre and other appetizers were poor to okay also. Crevice was good. I would not recommend them at this point as I had many excellent meals this week but this was not one of them.

    A friend and I chose to have dinner at S.N.O.B. during Restaurant Week 2014 based on reputation, selection, and price point. The overall experience was good but I was expecting great. I walked away a little disappointed. However, I will probably return to give it a second chance with the understanding that it could have been an off night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    We were so disappointed with the food on the restaurant week menu - chicken marsala was a thin piece of chicken deep fat fried put in a tastless sauce. The fish was dry and overcooked. Dessert was advertised as carrott cake - instead I was served an upside down muffin with no frosting. Stick with the regular menu! My husband ordered off the restaurant week menu for dessert and had a delicious apple dessert with ice cream -

    Our reservations were for 8:15 and we were not seated until 8:35; no place to sit at the bar to wait; there are a lot better places to go to in Charleston; I made the mistake of listening to someone that thought it was more important to go to a tourist place than a place where the locals eat; I'll know better next time. Wait staff was very, very good.

    With a reservation made, we were welcomed to dine once arriving. Drinks were promptly delivered while trying to decide from a menu that could satisfy any desire. The soup was so delicious, one bowl did not seem enough. The bread and cornbread went well with this choice. The pork schnitzel was excellent, tender and flavorful with the kale flavor in contrast. Topping the meal off with the key lime tart was just what I needed. Satisfied and satiated.

    We were there to celebrate a special occasion and the experience was good but not outstanding. Restaurant is beautiful, but very busy, so service was a bit slow. We liked the fact that the kitchen is visible and well organized, which reflects transparency. Food was good but not outstanding. When we got to the restaurant one of the waiters who saw us coming in did not bother to greet us or welcome us. That was disappointing.

    We had not eaTen at SNOB in years so were anxious to bring our Chicago friends there but we were rather disappointed. No one's meal was especially good. The shrimp and grits had way too much sauce and not enough shrimp. The tuna was tough, although the flavor was good. The tile fish was good.

    My husband and I have lunch at S.N.O.B. almost every time we are in Charleston. We have never been disappointed. I love the fresh tuna and the express lunch is always good too. I have had the burrito and the carnitas, both of which were very flavorful. I have tried the grilled chicken also and loved it. We love their soups (they will share their recipes with you). The location is superb and close to everything in the historic area. It is a bit noisy but most restaurants are these days. There is usually a mix of business people and tourists at lunch. Reservations are a good idea. It isn't really a place for kids IMHO.

    Arrived for an 8 PM reservation 40 minutes early. We had a drink at the very efficient and comfortable bar and were seated 15 minutes early. Fried green tomato app was perfectly prepared with crispy cornmeal crust and thick slices of flavorful tomatoes. Pan-seared swordfish on a bed of wonderfully seasoned veggies and . For dessert we shared a trio of sorbets which provided a perfect finish. The atmosphere was very cozy with old brick walls, tempered chandelier lighting and an energetic open kitchen at the far end of the dining room. Service was very attentive and personable. Not one negative for the evening and the final plus was the very reasonable tab. S.N.O.B. Will be on my itinerary for every future Charleston visit.

    We were very excited to eat at Slightly North of Broad, but it definitely did not live up to our expectations. The pork chop was very tough, even though it was cooked to their recommended temperature of medium. The sirloin was under cooked, though it was supposed to be medium, it was more medium rare. The service was not overly special and we had moments of feeling neglected with long periods of time between courses. It was disappointing after other reviews that we had read.
