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.

This restaurant has a luxurious ambience. A live jazz trio, a beautiful interior. Teams of wait staff perform impeccable service. They have a nice wine list with a helpful sommelier who isn't just out to sell the most expensive wines. My husband and I chose to share 4 courses. We had two appetizers. First we tried the charred octopus. While we love octopus, this was a disappointing dish for us... it was just ok. Next we tried the terrine of fois gras, which was an appetizer special. This was melt- in- your- mouth silky bites of deliciousness . Next we had the branzino (fish), which was cooked expertly - seared on the outside and tender on the inside, seasoned perfectly. We closed with a lovely creme brulee. We definitely recommend this experience. A few helpful hints: our uber driver dropped us at the correct address, but we couldn't find the restaurant! It's in a little "mall" - just go through the double doors and Charleston Grill is just inside on the left. If the weather is nice, there's a really pretty outside seating area in a courtyard.

Unfortunately we had a very disappointing experience. Had a 7:15 reservation and arrived 45 minutes early and asked to be seated. The concierge advised that table was not ready , there were numerous other reservations to be seated and we needed to wait or go to bar. Would have been fine except the restaurant was only 25% occupied and there appeared to be plenty of staff to serve. Went to the bar and had oysters and cheese selection (food quality good) but it was not enjoyable as we found the bartendress a bit arrogant in her demeanor. We finished appetizers and asked again at 7:00 if the table was ready and was told another 10 minutes.... having sat at the bar and watched the empty tables only made the experience more frustrating.

The dining experience goes well beyond the actual food in a restaurant of this caliber and unfortunately the Charleston Grill did not deliver. We will not go back and are disappointed that it was not a good experience.

This was our 2nd time dining at the Charleston Grill and it was even better than the first. The food is an artwork and everything was outstanding from start to finish. We would highly recommend dining at the Charleston Grill on your next trip to Charleston. You won't be disappointed

We did the 8-course tasting menu with wine pairings, and it was excellent! We didn’t have to think about what we wanted to order...the delicious dishes kept coming, and the wine was flowing all night!
If you are willing to spend some money and want to try a little bit of everything, I highly recommend doing one of their tasting menus. The service was wonderful, and we thoroughly enjoyed our date night!

Isn’t it great when everything is done perfectly? That summarizes our anniversary dinner at Charleston Grill. Foie Gras appetizer and Maine Oysters—perfect. St. Estephe wine—perfect. My wife’s filet mignon—perfect. My lamb chops—perfect (rare-medium to rare just as I requested). Dessert—a chocolate pudding cake—perfect. The service provided Trevor and Barbie—perfect.
If you are planning a special occasion or a date night we can highly recommend the Charleston Grill.

The crab and linguine had two bites of crab in it and was overpriced. The ribeye was very fatty. The bread, salad, and crabcake were superb.

Trevor was our server and he was attentive, informed, timely and easy going. We always expect and receive great service at The Charleston Grill. Food speaks for itself, we had a great table too!Many reasons why its one of, if not, the best restaurant in the city.

Our waiter was cordial and polite but we noticed how friendly he was to other people around us. He engaged with the folks at the other tables and made small talk. I love small talk so this really stood out to me. It’s hard not to feel that the reason was because we were the only couple of color there. Food was great but I don’t think we will be back.... again the folks were very polite...

I travel to eat. And this place is one of the best meals I’ve had. The food, room, location were all excellent. But what made it great was the staff. They really care and enjoy what they do. Thank you so much. I was smart enough to just let them suggest and pair. Good move. Already planning our next trip so we can dine with you again!
