The hostess sat us in a quieter area of the restaurant as we were surprised how loud it was when we arrived. The cocktails were perfect and the food delicious! The service was impeccable! We were able to have quiet conversations but the servers were very attentive.

Lacks the Charleston ambiance. Could be a fine dining restaurant in any Metro area USA. Great food and service, but very expensive compared to other upscale restaurants in Charleston.

The Charleston Grill has to be among the very best restaurants in the nation, not just Charleston. My advice to others: do NOT miss this dining experience! It is associated with a large, new downtown hotel, and the room itself lacks a certain amount of “charm.” However, the hostesses, the wait staff, and most importantly, the chef(s) are all superb, beyond excellent.

Great food, and service was impeccable. They do not hassle you if you bring your own wine ($40) corkage which is not unreasonable.

Six of us were eating together and had a wonderful experience! The food was special, delicious, and presented in a gorgeous way. The servers were efficient and worked as a team. Every person knew about the menu and could answer any question we had. There were special touches. The experience could not have been better!

Exceptional locally sourced menu that provided seafood, vegan and meat alternatives. The beet and fennel salad is terrific, veal tenderloin is cooked perfectly to temperature and the beef tenderloin melts in your mouth! Extensive wine list.

Physically a lovely restaurant. Tables are well-spaced. Charming host/hostess and waiters. They take a team approach which really led to excellent service. The food was very consistently excellent. Extensive wine and cocktail list. Live music was an elegant touch (flute, base, painno) and not too loud. A little hard to find since not on the street. Need to walk into a building to find entranace to restaurant.

We ate in the bar area. Everything about the meal was superb. Nice ambiance and a jazz trio playing. Excellent, friendly service. The food was orgasmic, especially rhe red snapper in green curry sauce. The crab cake was delicious as well as the roasted beet salad with pomegranate seeds. Reasonable price. Highly recommended.

I reserved a 5:30pm dining time as I can’t stand a noisy dining experience. I was surprised by the number of people already seated. Fortunately, it was quiet and peaceful with just the right amount of hustle and bustle to keep things interesting. I started with the FOIE GRAS, it was perfectly pan seared and delicious; tender with just the right amount of crust and the accompanying sauce was perfect in flavor, making the most of the duck. Although the Squab is listed as an appetizer I ordered it as my entrée. It was outstanding in flavor and texture, and just the right portion size for a “grazer” such as myself who likes to combine smaller, similarly themed items rather than one large item. From start to finish our servers were pleasent, listened carefully to our questions and delivered discrete yet friendly service. Michelle is a rare gem among chefs and I look forward to enjoying her creations again.

We dined with our adult son with special needs. We had requested a quiet table. The restaurant was so very gracious about how they greeted and seated us away from the live music (which was nice to listen to).The food was amazing and the service impeccable start to finish. Old school steak house ambiance. Highly recommend The Charleston Grill.

Overall a good experience. Service is always impeccable. But I do have one comment—We went for our anniversary. I indicated that on the reservation, but I tried to call and left messages to have a bottle of something waiting for us as a surprise for my husband. Never got a return call. They did acknowledge our anniversary when we arrived, which was nice. Just a little frustrated. And that could have added $100 (easily) to the check.
