    So here's the thing. The food wasn't bad. It was good. It just wasn't $500+ for two people good. My husband and I have been to exceptional Michelin star/bib gourmand restaurants in the United states, UK, and elsewhere. These places provide you with an excellent experience and fantastic food that we feel are worth the amount they charge. The bottom line for us was the service was nice, the food was good, but it was absolutely not worth how much we paid especially when compared to world class restaurants that charge nearly HALF the price for an unforgettable experience. Not for us.

    One of my favorite restaurants! My wife and I frequent Charleston celebrating many momentous occasions and the New Year's menu is always extra special. Charleston is one the best restaurants in the United States. Everything is perfection. I have had the pleasure of dining here many times and it always amazes. The lamb I had here recently was the best preparation I have ever eaten. The truffle soup with foie gras I had recently is something I'll be thinking about for many months. Quiet honestly you just have to eat try the diversity of the menu to experience it. No review could describe quality and taste of food or does justice to all the flavors. You just have to eat it! A true culinary experience. The service is truly professional and friendly. No better way to start a new year.
