Each bite was perfectly crafted, seasoned with loving care. The freshness and brightness of the ingredients was clear. Flavors were amazing. Crab cakes, ahi tuna, scallops and more were outstanding. Wine was a perfect pairing and the service impeccable. Perfect experience. Enjoyed meeting Chef Michelle, too.

In a town full of amazing restaurants, Charleston Grill stands out as perhaps the very best. Service, ambiance, a varied and universally excellent menu as well as a deep and exciting wine list make for an unforgettable experience. Maitre D Mickey is one of a kind and a rare jewel of a person, practicing a vanishing art of true hospitality. Andrew, the manager on duty was sharp, smart, friendly and consummately professional. Our experience was twice as good due to these gentlemen and the rest of the staff's warm and genuine care. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. A jewel of the South!

Charleston Grill offers Lush, Extravagant, Comfort, Southern, and is original in every category, with ability to choose across categories, with expert advice along the way (including wine choices). Live music, ability to choose appropriate seating for your needs. Original cocktails. Great for special occasions, romance, etc. We've spent holidays here and stayed in hotel and had a date nights here. Thank you to Andrew for allowing us to try wines we didn't know to match our meal and to answer our many questions about unusual food combinations - and we are quite the foodies so we are not often surprised by 'different' combinations. Happy with all our choices.

I had made a reservation and it was such an outstanding dinning experience that I went back the next night. Both nights were excellent food, excellent service, and live soft jazz---jazz every night. Without question it was far above any other restaurant that I visited in Charleston.

This would be your eminently "classy" fine dining experience; white table cloths, wood panelling, elegant and club-like in its interior and ambience. The service was beautifully professional, charming, informative and precise; the food and drink - fabulous! My guest and I had the foie gras and crab cake appetizers followed by the tenderloin of beef and flounder/shrimp low country sea food plate. Presentation was a feast for the eye, and the food a culinary delight. We had room to share a dessert - the chiffon cake, and left with that glowing feeling of having been treated like special guests to the feast of a lifetime.

I love the Charleston Grill. We hadn't been there in a long time. Again, the service was outstanding. The food was phenomenal with great menu choices. Michelle is very talented and creative. It was my husband's birthday and they made it extra special.

Fabulous! My husband loved the generous portion of lamb and I the flounder and shrimp entrée. The foie gras appetizer lives up to the hype. I will try to replicate the pea medley at home. The service was polished, the room clubby, the experience elegant. We will return. First-rate.

We ordered the "Chef Michelle Weaver’s 6 Course Tasting Menu"
It was a fantastic food journey.
We eat on a regular basis in Michelin Star restaurants in Europe and this restaurant deserves a Michelin Star.
Nothings is ordinary, most courses are new combinations and they will surprise you with great flavours.

We had a truly wonderful fine dining experience.

Excellent ambiance, service and food. Dressy and pleasant. Will definitely return.
Only two negatives were that the piano, while enjoyable, was too loud.
Secondly, as we were seated in coat and tie, etc, for dinner, a couple in camo shorts, t-shirts, etc were just leaving. Need to decide if they are truly upscale or not. Casual is fine in a casual place....

It was our wedding night and overall was a great experience! Lisa was REALLY great (I usually don't remember names)! Very friendly and the perfect amount of attention. The only critique I can make was that the, "Congratulations" on the thoughtful card was misspelled, lol. Thank you for a wonderful time. Very clean and high end restroom. We do wish that there would have been a desert cart and I noticed many restaurants have stopped this practice for some reason.

Thanks,
Mark & Michelle

Everyone from the hostess (addressing us by name upon arrival and while exiting) to the manager and our fantastic servers, Taylor and Andre, was a pleasure and worked together to make our anniversary truly special. They were able to accommodate my food intolerances beyond my expectations (I alerted them when I made the reservation). The Maroma Aguachile was truly outstanding. I would describe it as a kaleidoscope of flavor in my mouth! I thought I had to 'settle' for the sorbet as dessert due to my allergies...well, I was mistaken. Their sorbet was the most delicious and refreshing I've ever tasted! My favorite was the coconut; it was a dream come true because it had the creamy mouthfeel and delightful taste of that I remember high quality ice cream to have. The gorgeous view, the live music...there are too many little attentive details to list. Suffice it to say that if you are in the market for a high quality, delicious formal dining experience with exceptional service while in Charleston, I wholeheartedly recommend Charleston Grill!

We selected this restaurant as we wanted a special meal and read the reviews that they had live jazz each night. While it was not jazz but rather a string quartet, everything was formal but very nice. Chip our server was quite busy with all his tables, but took great care of us. Just a word of advice...portions are much larger than you might expect! But DEFINITELY order the crab cake...absolutely incredible!!

A nice mall based restaurant with very nice background music and excellent service. My only complaint is that the Chef relies way to much on his salt shaker in preparing ALL the fish dishes. Everyone at our table ordered one of the fish dishes on the menu and we each felt that our dishes were too salty.
