Incredible ambiance and seating. Our servers were great and efficient. The food was unbelievable. Everything we got was delicious but we would strongly recommend the crab cakes and the tenderloin. Definitely a treat!! The whole experience was worth it and we would definitely return.

The food is hands down some of the best food we have ever had. Not to be missed, order the foie gras paired with Paul Hobbs Ross Station Chardonnay one is literally made for the other. Chef Weaver is a talent and force who can put her food up against anyone! You cannot pass up an opportunity to eat here!

I went to this restaurant because I heard they were trying to get a michelin star. It was an outstanding meal and I believe they are probly very close to getting a michelin star. I did the 4 course tasting menu which was creative delicious and a very good value. The wait staff Brian and Trevor were very personable and tailored the tasting menu to our preferences and the wine that we had ordered. It was an excellent experience I will definitely be returning.

Given the ratings and the price I was expecting a higher standard. There were elements of the meal that we're good but other aspects that were inadequate. The pork belly appetizer was chopped into small pieces with a consistency of dried smoked meat. The accompanying watermelon added an element of sweetness that did not carry or bring the the flavors together. This was consistent in other dishes including the foie gras which by itself was great but the accompanying blueberries did nothing to meld the flavors of savory and sweet. The sturgeon entry did not appear to be said fish as it tasted of non description white fleshy fish. Moreover it was drenched in butter. The mushroom cavatelli was a good dish though perhaps over salted shadowing the flavors of the truffle and chantrelles.

This is one of five reviews of Charleston restaurants my wife and I dined at during late August/early September. The grading is based upon each individual restaurants character. i.e. Casual, Upscale, Tourist,...

We decided to splurge and make the Charleston Grill my wife's second birthday celebration of our trip. It is an upscale restaurant with the atmosphere of a private club. The dining room is large with tasteful wood paneling. The seating is well spaced and provides a modicum of privacy to your party. Live Jazz music provides a perfect accompaniment to dinner. My wife and I arrived and were warmly greeted by the hostess and seated in a corner table. The servers operate in pairs and are friendly, knowledgeable, and very, very attentive. We again began our dinner with a 1/2 bottle of the Taittinger champagne. For an appetizer we both ordered the crab crabs. They were excellent. For the main course my wife had the sturgeon and I had the lamb. The sturgeon was cooked to perfection and my wife loved it. The lamb was a generous portion and very tasty. Our choice of wine was Tor Cuvee Susan (My wife's name) and of course it was a perfect accompaniment to both meals. For desert we had the creme brulee and it too was perfect. Throughout the service could not have been better and we greatly enjoyed the atmosphere with the Jazz in the background. Highly recommend.

I set a reservation for post-proposal to my fiancé, and the staff made our night so memorable. They were professional, but also down to earth and fun. They made excellent recommendations as well. We did the 6 course tasting menu, everything was great, but the lamb and foie gras were two of the best things I've ever had. The waffle and rhubarb ice cream sandwich was so light and delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fantastic, with light music playing in the background. I've been to over 100 restaurants in Charleston, and this one was my favorite. For your next big event do yourself a favor and schedule a reservation here.

The food was average but overpriced. Service was excellent. Location was a bit of a surprise. We were expecting a nice dining experience in an old Charleston building complete with character and charm. Instead the Location is a bit like a retail mall.

Whenever I visit Charleston I always make sure I have two nights set aside for dinner at the Charleston Grill.
From the moment you are greeted at the door until you leave the staff makes you feel very special. The servers typically work in pairs and they are exceptional. The signature dish is the lamb chops, but if that's not for you there are several selections that will surely be to your liking. Great wine list, great foot and great staff. I'll be back!

Always one of the best in Charleston and beyond! We enjoyed the romantic table, loved the relaxing jazz, loved the crab cake appetizer that the Grill is known for, had great ribeye and scallop entrees with local flair. They picked up one drink since we were celebrating a special occasion. Chef treated us to seasonal seafood sample to begin and a plate of sweets at the end of the evening. We love the bar and staff as well! Perfect evening!
