Disappointed we weren't able to have dinner in the Charleston Grill location due to renovations. The menu was very good however as was our entrees and service.

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!

Excellent service and phenomenal food. Once the server found out we were there on our honeymoon, he went out of his way to make the night even more spectacular. The chef and the restaurant manager also went out of their way to make the night special.

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 24, 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.

We enjoyed an outstanding anniversary dinner at the Charleston Grill. The food and service could not have been any better. Dinners are a little pricey but....are well worth it. While it was our anniversary and we received special attention I could observe that every table and every guest were treated with outstanding service. We will return again on out next trip to Charleston.

We had an outstanding meal here. The "tasting menu" is a system by which you get to choose any five things from the menu (not counting the caviar...) plus dessert, and each person at the table gets a half portion of each. I suppose there are people who might find they didn't get enough food this way, but we were completely satisfied. The crab cakes were just what they should be: lump crab just bound together. Scallops were perfect; creamed chanterelles on grits with shrimp and country ham a nice combination; duck foie gras exactly right, and the roasted squab excellent as well. Presentations and accompaniments were appetizing and appropriate. Nothing we had was remarkably creative, but everything was just as it should be, something that's rarer to find than the exotic.
We ordered a split of Billecart-Salmon Rosé to start, and a very nice 2011 Nuits-St. Georges from the extensive (and not seriously overpriced) wine list. It turned out they didn't have the champagne chilled yet, so they offered us a glass of another rosé champagne while we waited. There was also a complimentary glass of a nice dessert wine, though I forget the details.
The service was unusually good, even for a restaurant of this quality. I had mentioned that it was our 38th anniversary, and there was a card at our table, and all of the waitstaff from the hostess at the door to the wine steward wished us a happy anniversary. People were there when it was useful, and not there when it wasn't. Altogether the nicest anniversary dinner we could imagine.

My wife and I visited Charleston Grill for my birthday - it was a wonderful experience. The food was great and the service impeccable. During dinner, a Bosa Nova group performed; it provided nice background music without being intrusive. I would highly recommend this restaurant for special occasions.

In our opinion, this is absolutely Charleston's foremost restaurant in every category. We celebrated our anniversary there and took a 1982 Bordeaux first growth that we had cellared. Mickey Bakst, the incredible maitre d', recognized it immediately and saw to it that our server respected it for exactly what it was. Our servers, Andrew and Paul, provided excellent, professional service throughout the meal, but everyone on the staff works to make sure that all guests have the utmost in service. The food was exceptional. We started with the caviar dish, enjoyed a crabcake appetizer and topped that off by splitting the 22 oz ribeye - enough for both at dinner and leftovers for the night after. This was certainly a splurge (our 50th anniversary), but you don't have to go to these extremes to fully enjoy the ambiance, service and food at Charleston Grill.

Took an overnight trip to Charleston in order to have a nice meal and chose Charleston Grill which we have been to on several previous trips to Charleston. Food was wonderful as usual and service was outstanding. We split the tuna appetizer. Both the Thai fish and Lowcountry Muddle entrees were very good.

Everything about dining at this restaurant is high-end without being pretentious. Absolutely delicious and unique food. Staff's attention to detail is noteworthy -- it's present as you are greeted and seated through when it's time leave; making you feel like royalty. Every step to ensure you have the best meal is made and they accomplish that completely.

Service was beyond great. Very attentive but not overbearing. Flounder dish was out of this world. Gluten free options are available including bread. Jazz band was soothing to listen to. Lots of gifts from the chef (amuse bouche). Class act all the way. By far the best meal I've had in Charleston thus far.
