We celebrated our wedding anniversary tonight at the Charleston Grill and had one of the best date nights we have ever had! The live music was phenomenal, the service was on point, and the food was unbelievable. The servers really went out of their way to make our night special. We would honestly recommend this restaurant to anyone celebrating a special occasion. My husband and I really loved it!!

Surprising underwhelming- the red snapper used a sauce that did not work at all. The ribeye ($52) was a bit tough and over salted. Management was very accommodating and service was friendly and efficient but you need the food to complete the Valentines Day experience.

We enjoyed the ambience and the music just added to the great dinner we had! My fish was so delicious and the lamb chops were the best my husband had - and we eat all over the world. We can’t wait to return as my husband loves a good steak and they have a ribeye!

 (Hawaii)·Dined on February 8, 2018

Our first visit to Charleston Grill and they went above and beyond in personalizing our welcome. Mary Elizabeth is the consummate professional equally impressive in her farewell acknowledgment as her warm and inviting greeting. Ambiance was full of character, noteable background of a live 3-piece jazz band provided a fine atmosphere which paired well with coupled side-by-side seating. Service was superb and attentive, each course presented patiently, without rushing the evening along. Fois was irreproachable in appearance, texture and taste - an absolute must try. All in all, a wonderful evening with admirable attention to detail by James and Brooke who both graciously attended to our dining experience.

Excellent food and service. Music is just right for enjoyable listening: no drama nor hearing trauma. A bit more expensive than most Charleston restaurants but well worth the difference.

We visited Charleston Grill for NYE, and was slightly disappointed that we could only order off the set menu. The menu options were less than desirable and seemed as though they were not made to order. We will more than likely return on a day other than a holiday.

This was our second time driving to Charleston from Atlanta and dining at the Charleston Grill. Our interactions with waitstaff and especially Mickey, the sommelier, really made our evening. Executive Chef Michelle Weaver did not disappoint with any of our courses. We will be back!

We were visiting from out of town and everyone we spoke to recommended The Charleston Grill for a special night out. We saved it for our last night, and loved every minute. From the incredible live jazz music to the delicious food to the impeccable service we had a fantastic evening. It's everything others told us and more!

We have been coming to Charleston Grill for years but this was our first Christmas meal for Christmas night and it was perfect. The live music, the food, the service by everyone especially Adam and Paul was truly special. You have to try the "F-ing Good" Cocktail it is really that good! We then finished the evening in the lobby bar listening to the pianist and dancing occasionally when you hear a romantic song. We highly recommend it!

We enjoyed the restaurant, but unfortunately for me, I no longer can complete a three course meal. I asked for a take home box and very much looked forward to my leftovers. When I arrived home, much to my disappointment, they only gave me my meat and none of my vegetables! I’ve never had this happen and certainly did not expect it from this restaurant!

Our servers, Andrew and Andre, were truly awesome servers. They were exceptional. The food was great or okay. Not sure if we should have stayed in our lanes when ordering (the menu is broken into different quasi themes). We were a little disappointed given the rave reviews; it may be a bit overhyped. It was very good, just not super great.

 (Miami)·Dined on December 23, 2017

We dined on a busy evening just before Christmas, and enjoyed the holiday vibe. The food was excellent, especially the oysters and brussel sprouts, and we opted for a variety of side dishes as small plates instead of entrees to avoid over-eating during our Christmas holiday in Charleston. They were all delicious, as were the drinks. Service was excellent by an attentive staff and management. Not the most charming restaurant in Charleston--more like a hotel restaurant, which it is--but we enjoyed the quality of the food and good service.

We had drinks at the Thoroughbred Club then dinner at the Grill. The restaurant was beautiful and the service was excellent. We were advised by a friend to start with the crab cakes and while they were very good, the citrus preparation overwhelmed the delicate crabmeat. I had the flounder and it was delicious.
