This was truly excellent. I had the scallops and my wife had the haddock. Both were perfectly cooked. I will say that the sauce on my scallops was slightly heavier than I excepted. Next time I might choose a Pinot Noir to go with them. There will be a next time

Outstanding food and first class service. The crab cake was the best I’ve ever had. My main server, Adam, was so lovely and made me feel like a queen. I had the 6 course tasting menu with the mid-range wine pairing. All the pairings were absolutely amazing!! 6 courses was really 9 with the extra surprise treats they brought out (including a little dessert to take home). Do yourself a favor and make a reservation here. The experience was worth every penny

I enjoyed my dinner at Charleston Grill mostly because of the wonderful entrainment. The music was a piano, base, & drums, which only added to the dinning experience.

Outstanding. Everything about the evening was wonderful. The crab cakes, the fois gras, the halibut, the blue cheese course, the delightful gifts from the kitchen, a symphony of impeccable tastes backed by live music and orchestrated by attentive staff. We aren’t locals but we will definitely be back!

Charleston Grill was our best dining experience in Charleston which included several high end restaurants. The food was tremendous (rib-eye and beef tenderloin) and our server Bryan was attentive and explained every item.

Charleston Grill is now one of our all-time favorite restaurants! It has it all: lovely space, amazing cuisine, superlative staff. Our dining experience was seamless. My husband and I felt adventurous and ordered the chef's six-course tasting menu and were not disappointed. Additionally, Bryan, our waiter, and the kitchen staff made sure that my half of the meal met my gluten-free needs. This place is perfect.

Our first visit to Charlestown and with all of the hoopla about the local food and little time to enjoy it we decided for convenience to east in the hotel where were staying. Even as guests hard to get a reservation - good sign? - but we did and thoroughly enjoyed the experience starting with a well made martini through the entire meal. Well presented, tasty and not routine dishes make our day.

If I could caption this review, it would be "Southern Hospitality at its Finest". Very nice dining experience. The menu could be a little more extensive but I'd rather they do what they do well than do a lot and do nothing well. The service is top notch. The dining room attendants are professional yet warm and cordial. I've only tried the crab cake and butter beans but I don't need to try anything else. I will order the crab cake everytime. It is superb and I live in blue crab country so I know a thing or two about crabs. No filler just delicious, sweet crab meat gently shaped into a small but absolutely satisfying cake, grilled and paired with a few tiny, flavorful shrimp. However, it's topped with a slice of grapefruit which I didn't quite understand; I just pushed it aside. The butter beans are served with rice and reminded me of my own; tender and tasty. The live music is hit or miss. One night they had a quartet in the tiny space provided. I couldn't really appreciate it; two guitar players, a drummer and a mediocre piano player. The lead guitarist played Brazilian music and was mumbling something. Perhaps he was supposed to be singing. But the next night, they had a fabulous trio consisting of a guitarist, a drummer and an exceptionally talented piano player. I will definitely dine here again when visiting Charleston.

We had a wonderful experience at this beautiful restaurant located at the Charleston Place Hotel! Our waiter Bryan was terrific as well as all the servers that waited on us and/or passed our table. So friendly and so efficient! Julie, one of the managers, was amazing! Food was delicious and loved the trio playing music in the background from another room! It is very difficult when you are traveling and have to make reservations at places you have never been to but Open Table makes it easy ! I read all the reviews and this restaurant did not disappoint. A little pricey but so worth it ..

From the moment my husband and I walked into the restaurant, to the time we left, every need was met with expert efficiency: the food was superb, our waiter was knowledgeable and cared for our every need, good jazz band that didn’t intrude on conversation and a great ambience .

I sent my mom and aunts to this restaurant for a pre-mother's day dinner. They absolutely loved this place from the music (Friday night) to the service and everything in between. They raved about the ambiance and really enjoyed the jazz quartet. They said the food, especially the fish, was some of the best they ever had. Thanks for making this a special night for my aunts!

We went to Grill 225 the next night and had a much better experience. Would not come back to Charleston Grill compared to competition in the area. Food was better and larger at 225 for a similar price point/experience. I do not work for grill 225 and have no vested interest in them.
