Experience was my best dining experience ever. From the initial greeting and helpfulness offered by the staff through the whole meal, you felt welcome. Bryan, Vlad and Adam served us extremely well and the team was quite attentive. Their suggestions were on spot. The food was phenomenal and quite satisfying.

The only recommendation I would offer is that only offering steak at 8 oz and 22 oz is not great. Would have preferred something in between,

Some dishes were served cold and had to be sent back. I thought the menu lacked creativity. Everything was done well just not exceptionally like I anticipated for the restaurant. Service was impeccable though and should be recognized. I was not charged for the off dishes and were removed without me be notified which I found refreshing. I will give it a second chance when I return if the menu is updated.

This was the first trip for my wife and I to Charleston. We decided to get the fine dining experience that the city is known for. We went with the six course tasting menu and let the chef decide on the bulk of the courses. They were all delicious, from the chilled octopus to the rack of lamb. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We sat next to the band, so the noise level was a little high, but we enjoyed it. We will go again on our next trip.

Convenient as we were starting at the Belmond. Nice ambience with a jazz combo playing during the time we were there for dinner. Service was impeccable, though servers could have been a little more talkative. Oysters were just ok. The crabcake appetizer was Outstanding. The prime rib was a nice piece of meat well cooked but somehow nothing special. Potato gratin was terrific.

I guess I'll be in the minority, but CG is not a "Go back" for my wife and I. Food was good, but not "The best" which were my expectations. Service could have been better. Ambience with Jazz in the background was wonderful. Just overall all value wasn't there for me (us). We are local, and we've had better food and service in downtown Charleston.

If I had to rate one element the best it would have to be the service. All the staff were incredible attentive and engaging which really makes a difference. The food was really good too only wish I had room for desert but after eating the 22oz ribeye not a chance!! Will have to go back for that !!

Top notch food and service. In a city of epic chef’s, the Charleston Grill has the best. The only thing that could have made the tasting menu better would have been if we had had the money for the wine pairings. Absolutely 5-star. Get a table away (!) from the bar; it can be very noisy.

Great food and atmosphere perfect for a date night or special occasion! Amazing wine list! The only thing was my husband hates onions and we said not to put them on anything and they where left on.

Charleston Grill came highly recommended. With so many choices in Charleston we wanted a great experience and certainly received one. The service is outstanding - a level about most great restaurants. The wait staff is personable, attentive, and we waited for nothing. The flounder and pasta dishes we had were delicious. Would have like to try several more dishes as well. Certainly one of the best experiences in Charleston.

Had dinner there on 10/15/19. Andrew, our waiter, was pleasant and attentive. We were left to enjoy our wine and cocktail before ordering food. I had foie gras and scallops, while my husband had tomato salad and steak. Food was very good and nicely presented. We shared a side of butter beans. I was disappointed that the sides were limited. The blueberry gateau was a excellent dessert. There were complimentary appetizers and palette cleansers and we left with additional complimentary candies. Very nice!

Food was awesome as usual....seemed to be plenty of Waite staff but had to ask for a black napkin and my sparking water was not filled till I waved to server. Chef Bob would not approve of service.

We were able to celebrate our 20th anniversary with Charleston Grill. Our server Adam was fantastic, as was the entire team at Charleston Grill. Frankly some of the best service I've ever received at any restaurant. I had a tuna starter, which was delicate and rich at the same time, followed by a flounder served over a local fresh vegetable medley. My main course was truly amazing, and my wife, who doesn't eat fish, even comments on how delicate and moist the fish entree was prepared. We would both recommend going there, and we are sure to return on our next outing to Charleston next summer.
