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.

This is listed as a two $ price level. It’s actually a 4 $. I had a delicious entree but it was $60. Very good experience but it was more expensive then I expected.

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.

Lovely staff, great food and wine, bar is to close to the tables so you have all the load noise from there and then live music to load from other end. We had to really almost scream at on another across the table

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.

Charleston Grill is the ultimate, luxurious dining experience in Charleston. From the moment you walk in to the last bite, everything at Charleston Grill is first class.

My wife and I did the 8 course tasting menu with wine pairings. The wine program at Charleston Grill rivals that of any 3 Michelin Star restaurant. The service, the ambiance, and, most importantly, the food matches that as well. Dish after dish was perfectly executed and packed a ton of flavor. They don’t over complicate things, but they know delicious. From the tuna, to their famous crab cakes, to the foie gras, venison, and lamb, it just doesn’t get better than this in Charleston. The wines elevated each dish as well.

Don’t miss an opportunity at the ultimate in fine dining in Charleston.

We wined and dined our way through Charleston for a month and this was the finest of our dining experiences overall. The Stone crab appetizer is heaven and my sturgeon entree is my most delicious food memory! The staff is attentive and service spot-on. Perhaps the best though is the performance by the talented jazz trio- it completely adds to the ambience so that you know that you are enjoying a very special evening.
