Leaf is a popular Charleston restaurant that strives to incorporate local ingredients and organic foods into every dish served from the kitchen. Whether you're seated inside or outside, the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. Large elm trees reach over the outside tables and shade the area from the sun, making it possible to be comfortable even on the sunniest days.

At Leaf, you can order a delicious Sunday brunch featuring your choice of scrumptious breakfast and lunch dishes as well as a cocktail. During the week, lunch and dinner are offered daily. Begin your meal with freshly made pita chips & dip or a platter of Brie cheese and berries before moving on to your entrée. Enjoy a crisp salad (with or without meat added), soups, sandwiches and melts, meatloaf, fish & chips, stuffed pork loin, Scottish salmon and other tasty delicacies served at Leaf.

Leaf is a great Charleston restaurant. We've eaten here often over the years and made one last trip before it closes at end of January. We will miss it.

Everyone in our party ordered the Restaurant Week specials and every dish was excellent (beef tenderloin, chicken and salmon)!!The tomato/lobster bisque was outstanding! We had to wait beyond our reservation time because of the crowd but the staff was very attentive during that time. The atmosphere is so nice that we didn't mind at all. We have been to Leaf many times and always have a wonderful experience! We have always recommended Leaf very highly to family and friends, and take visitors there every time we have company. Can not recommend highly enough!!

Very unfortunate they are closing. Food and service were fantastic. A very pleasant experience for my wife and I.

The restaurant is visually very pretty with soft lighting. Service is excellent. Food is good and a real plus for Charleston the noise level is low and the parking garage is right across the street. One of our favorite places for Sunday brunch on the outdoor patio followed by 2nd Sunday stroll of King Street.

Went for a casual meal with my daughters. I had the tomato bisque and a caprese salad. Daughter 1 had the shrimp PoBoy and daughter 2 had the short rib grilled cheese. Everyone enjoyed her meal. The food was reasonably priced and the service was good, but a bit impersonal.

It is really too bad how mismanaged this place is. The place is lovely, great location, great porch, nice bar and atmosphere BUT this is the 2nd time I've been in 6 months and both experiences were just terrible. The first time the food was decent but the service was horrendous, this most recent time I figured I'd give it another go, but this time the service was at least better (although not once were we asked if we wanted another round of drinks, despite having empty glass throughout dinner and afterwards) but my dinner entree (short ribs) was so bad it had to be sent back and I had lost my appetite at that point. My fiance' had the lobster bisque which was so salty we could only take a few bites and the lobster tail which was tiny!

I really hope some new owners/management take on this restaurant because it would be such a great place if only the service and food were better!

The staff was friendly and prompt. The food was great! While the restaurant was very clean and the ambiance was spot on, the floor was very slippery and quite hazardous to walk on if not wearing flats.

We had a great server, who did very well with our three year old. Food was good, though not outstanding. There were TVs in the bar area, which were loud enough to hear from outside patio; luckily we were seated in the back section.
