The restaurant atmosphere and wait staff were amazing. The food was fantastic also. We had a special of seared grouper that would melt in your mouth. We were convinced to get the coconut cake which did not disappoint. This was our second visit and it didn’t disappoint!!
Service by Dana was excellent and complemented the outstanding food.
I took my family of 7 there to celebrate my daughter's 10th birthday and it was amazing! Everyone, from the super friendly and sweet seating hostess (who gave all of us who were chilly pashminas - thanks Beth!), our knowledgeable and kind sommelier (who told my 7 year of that she could call him "The Wine Guy," made her giggle!), to our very capable and skilled waiter (who was French and I'm sorry I didn't catch his name!) and his team who kept the food coming and left us wanting for nothing. We will definitely be back for many more special occasions for many more years to come. We could not have chosen anywhere better!
We haven't dined at Peninsula in several years (my bad!), but my memories of its food were upheld by our dinners. I had the duck breast and my companion had the filet with bernaise sauce. Both were superb!
The duck was subtly flavored and served on a bed of root veggies and wild mushrooms, and the root veggies were delicately flavored, rather than being strong. There was a sauce of the type that is intense and sticky on the mouth, and fantastic.
The filet was almost fork-tender and perfectly cooked with an expertly prepared bernaise.
In all, the Peninsula remains a dependable dining room for great food and a reasonably quiet atmosphere.
Lovely Birthday dinner. Service and food were terrific as usual!
The best food. Amazing service.
Marvelous restaurant in a fabulous city! Food, delicious! Service, impeccable! Wonderful experience!
Great, great, great!!
Very nice. Great food. Wonderful service.
Excellent service and quality of food preparation. The bread and coconut cake were wonderful. Our waiter was the best. Plan to go again when in Charleston.

Our server was great, she was very helpful and her suggestions made it very easy to select what to choose to eat.
We enjoyed our evening and our birthday bash! The food was prepared correctly and brought to the table all at one time. The waiter did an excellent job and was attentive. Over all nice evening.
Service and food excellent. Mother daughter getaway and this hidden courtyard was so special. Scallops cooked perfectly. Must have coconut cake.
Disappointed with the filet special which came out over cooked. Asked for medium rare and only a portion of it had signs of pink.
Wreck fish (grouper) was outstanding.
Great service and a decently positioned table compared to last visit.
Will go again but there are better values in town based in our meal last night.
See above. Server Delia was outstanding and conscientious but not intrusive to our needs.
Best restaurant and food. Period!
excellent food, drinks and service. leave room for the coconut cake. it was our favorite meal of the trip.
I just felt it was SO OVERPRICED!!!!!
I frequently visit lovely restaurants and this was just so overpriced.
Excellent all the way around!
Everything is amazingly delicious every time we go there. Coconut cake speaks for itself. One of our favorite destinations while in Charleston.
Always amazing. Get the coconut cake. It’s worth the trip. Food is amazing, service impeccable.
We enjoy the dining atmosphere if not surrounded by too many tourists in beach attire, flip flops & T-shirts.
I realize that is part of dining in Charleston as a “local”
The Penn Grill provides excellent service and attention to detail in both wine and food selections.
We have dined frequently at Penn. Grill and are rarely disappointed with our appetizers and entrées. They know how to prepare local fish dishes as well as duck and the beef selections.
They have a broad spectrum of wine, champagne & dessert wines.
Great choice for everyday dining, business and special occasions.
This was our first time in Charleston and we were advised to eat at FIG. We made a Sunday reservation, but unbeknownst to us at the time, it was for FIG in Santa Monica! Turns out FIG in Charleston is closed on Sundays. So, we left the FIG Charleston location and proceeded down the street where we came upon the Peninsula Hotel and Peninsula Grill.
We met the bartender Cassandra and the fun got started. My wife is very particular about her Cosmos and Cassandra made a perfect one. She gave us details on the menu specials and generally helped us have a good time.
When time for dinner came, Jessica took over where Cassandra left off. Genuinely sweet and courteous, she complimented me on my choice of the Margaux and provided us with excellent service throughout our meal.
Speaking of our meal, Chef Taimanglo is a Superstar! He made our duck with chimichurri sauce medium rare to perfection. It was so good that I used my remaining bread to sop up the juices!
Highly recommend eating at the Peninsula Grill if you are in Charleston!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing food! The steak was to die for. Excellent all around.
Our 34th anniversary, I gave the young lady that seated us a heads up about our anniversary and the entire staff treated my wife and I so great! Service , food and the entire experience there was fantastic!
My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner experience. We both had the filet and we both said it was one of the best filets that we have had. We will definitely be back.
Awesome experience awesome food
Absolutely wonderful. Everyone was amazing. The food was exceptional. Our waitress Jessica was lovely! The sommelier was so friendly and helped us pick our amazing wine for our dinner. Can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic food and impeccable service, what more can I say
Could not have had a better eating experience in Charleston! Will absolutely be back!!
One of the best meals we’ve ever had!
The food is incredible. Had the grouper special. Highly recommend it! The coconut cake is the best in CHS. Looking for to our next visit!
Absolutely amazing... from food to service to everything
3rd year anniversary.....drove down from Charlotte.. it’s a pleasure to see staff who love their professions and the food was fantastic
When in Charleston, Peninsula Grill is a must. It perfectly captures the essence of the city. Great food and great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
30th anniversary dinner. We go to that restaurant every year. Very disappointing because the service was extremely slow and nonresponsive. The meal took almost 3 hours it was far below their usual standards. Won't be back there for a long time. Too many other good choices. Unfortunately this was our favorite restaurant before this week
