    We live in Charleston, but have a farm house near Lake City. I was overjoyed to find a GOOD restaurant if we wish to go out to dinner. Table 118 has some delicious dishes. The scallop appetizer is divine. And the krispy kreme bread pudding is worth the calories. If you find yourself in the Lake City region of SC, definitely go to Table 118. Lake City also has a couple of great shops. Main Street Mercantile has beautiful and unique gifts and accessories. Mosaic is a very upscale clothing store (DVF, Tory Burch...). Plus there is a cool art gallery in an old feed store.

    I went there to meet someone... Kinda got stood up but the staff made it worth the drive. Everyone was friendly and kind only had 2 beers but I am going back for many meals. Love the place it's right off the street in the middle of town so it's in a great area. I'm going back very soon

    We placed our reservation through opentable. They accepted our reservation and when we arrived there was a handwritten note on door that said they were closed. We drove 45 minutes for this dinner - me and my wife. After lamenting to friends about our terrible experience we have heard at least 4-5 other similar stories of dissatisfaction. I will never return there again.

    My wife and I made time for a quiet dinner for the two of us. I ordered the lamb chops and my wife the steak. The atmosphere was nice and we could carry on a conversation very easily since only three other tables were filled. When the food came to the table it was all messed up. If you cannot remember the order when you get to the kitchen, then write it down! They quickly got it right but if they had been busy, I am not sure they could fix the problem so quickly. The food was great but the service was lacking. I had seen the reviews and after eating there they are accurate about the service. My wife and I have decided that we will try Table 118 again. We enjoyed our food but will know to have reserved expectations about the service.

    Wait staff seem to be overwhelmed. We waited 10-15 minutes for water. Finally asked for water, than had to ask if we could get our drinks ourselves from bar which we had ordered when we sat down and still did not have. Food ok. Sandwich bun warm on bottom cold on top It is a darling little place, but food and wait staff have long way to go!

    We ordered duck breast & lamb chops, medium rare and both came out nearly raw. Flavors were OK, but nothing very special. Noting that this restaurant is in a very small town, it was OK--would not survive in a larger city.

    We dined in the rear on the outside patio, which was very unattractive. Try to get inside. Food was excellent, but be sure to ask about pricing on specials. I spent $65 on a 24 ounce bone in cowboy rib eye. The good news there was enough to share; at least they did not charge for the split! Other than that, I'd have rated it outstanding.

    I have eaten at 118 several times and each time I am amazed that the service gets worse. Food was cold to warm, waiter didn't have a clue and he has been there since they opened. We had reservations early, but there was a large party going on in the restaurant area- so we ended up in the bar area- not a problem. Fritters with appetizer were not cooked properly, inside was liquid. Entrée was luke warm when delivered. Until I hear the service has improved, I will not return. I can't recommend this place to anyone right now. And Lake City really needs this to be a successful restaurant, but they are running out of chances.

    I'm happy for this restaurant and for Lake City that it's really coming into its own! Solid menu and wine list. A server named Mave (not sure I spelled it right) who is a real gem, and a friendly yet sophisticated atmosphere. Worth a little trip from Florence as far as I'm concerned. Treat yourself!

    Table 118 is a beautiful renovation of an old downtown location. Food and wine prices are a bit high for a Lake City restaurant. (9.00 for a glass of wine and most entrees are $25.00 and do not include sides or salad) Our server was inexperienced. She wrote my order down, and then had to come back and ask me again what I had ordered. I appreciate having a nice spot to visit in Lake City to eat.

    The host was very welcoming! The waitress was awful- asked if we wanted to order appetizers first before drinks, served the salad (all but one, brought it much later). The salad beautifully presented. . She was more concerned with making sure everyone had water than anything else. One of us didn't take but two bites of their steak and all she said was "are you done"? The host came over every 10-15 minutes to check on us, it felt really creepy. There was a guy that came by and remembered that it was my moms birthday and brought two slices of cake to share, that was a nice touch! Wish we had more of him. The lobster tail was good, the shrimp/grits good, the grouper was okay, the special was not as described.

I had eaten lunch at Table 118 shortly after it opened and was impressed with everything but the service. I was happy to find that the staff has now been properly trained and the service is up to par with the other first class features of the restaurant. We will be putting Table 118 on our favorites list.

    Dined on 9/3/2013
    I had great expectations for this place. We went once with a large group and had great food and great service. The last time we went, my wife and I were alone on a Tues and had some problems....There were no specials available as advertised, the salads were premade and not worth the 8-10 dollars per plate, the meal was paced poorly, the hot appetizer (scallops) came out the same time as our salads...the wine was good...the entree (prime rib and lamb) were so heavily sauced that the flavors got muddied. My concern is that while we were dining there the chef was hosting a tasting and we felt that we got the cold shoulder...would consider trying this place again....but our bill was way too high for the mediocre quality we received.

    It took 30 minutes to get the two drinks, which were ordered at the bar for the couple that arrived at 7pm......then, another 20 to order our drinks at our table, and another 20 min for those drinks. Then, we ordered, but weren't sure we ordered, as the waiter did not ask how the food was to be cooked, ie. rare, med, well. Had to re-confirm everything, as didn't want it all cooked wrong.....that took time to get the waiter back at our table, confirm. Dinner took 3+ hours.....it's a good thing we had good company!

    The food is really delicious. Chef Carlos is a gem. However, the service on this trip was lacking. The server never asked for our drink orders. They made sure our water glasses were always full, but never asked if we'd like to order a drink. On this visit there were more people in the restaurant which affected the timeliness of our order coming out. But overall, we enjoyed it. And the key lime cake was tasty!

    After eating in restaurants around the world I have some good and some OK comments about the food. I had the lamb and my wife had the Ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly. My lamb was delicious, the best I have ever had. My wife's Ribeye was only average and honestly she could have gotten the same steak at a much cheaper restaurant. The sides were tasty except for the mashed potato's which were too stiff and apparently designed to hold up the steak for presentation. For the price the quantity of food could have been greater, my side of spinach was literally one bite, but the spinach was so good that I wanted more. We will be back though, the lamb was so good if other dishes are as good then we will be happy

    The food and service were great. I have travelled around the world and remember all the great restaurant experiences. This is right up there. Typically you would drive for hours and only hope that the food, atmosphere, and service were reasonably close to what Table 118 has accomplished. Chef Carlos has really topped my chart. Can't wait for the next visit. Can't find anything on the menu that would not be highly recommended.
