This restaurant is very beautiful inside and out. We arrived for our reservation which was scheduled at 9:15pm, however our table wasn't available and after a 15 minute wait we asked to be seated outside. The hostess asked the manager and they advised that they could accommodate us, which turned out to be so much better than we expected! We pretty much had the whole patio to ourselves and it was really beautiful. There Baked Oysters "Rockefeller Style" were really well cooked and had an amazing flavor. The main dinner, Free Range Joyce Farms Chicken Breast was also very good, the meat slid off the bone and it wasn't over cooked at all.
Great location and service. It was loud and kids sat behind us watching iPads at full volume, which was still better than the original seat they put us in, by the bar in front of the exit. Food was fantastic and service was great. Would definitely go back even though us was very loud.
Outstanding service, food and atmosphere!
The staff was extremely welcoming and made our visit feel especially personalized. The food was phenomenal!! The service was impeccable. We cannot wait to go back!
Our waiter was attentive and our food delicious. We have eaten at the Peninsula Grill on numerous occasions and were never disappointed. Veterans’ Day was our 52nd Wedding Anniversary.
So we enjoyed an extended celebration in Charleston.
This place was mediocre and I expected much better for the price.
Peninsula is the best restaurant in Charleston. Food and service cannot be topped!
The steak was okay - not great. The menu was expensive, limited and the side dishes and drink offerings were not up to par. We visit Charleston often - would not return to this restaurant - definitely off the list.
Exceptional service. We felt very welcomed, not rushed.
Great overall experience. Food was very good all around. The service was superb and our server Jonathan was outstanding. Ambiance was excellent as well. My only complaint is that my wife and I both ordered Filets at med rare and her’s came out almost rare while mine was more on the medium side. A restaurant of this caliber should be spot on the cooking temps. Very impressed aside from that.
Phenomenal dinner and service. So good that we went back three times on our trip. The breakfast is Charleston’s hidden jewel.
Entertaining family in from out of town and brought them to our favorite CHARLESTON restaurant. Always amazing food and impeccable service. Highly recommend
Classic menu with impeccable service. Very nice recommendation from sommelier for our wine selection.
The food and service were both excellent. Get the coconut cake!
Jonathan was terrific and the service was outstanding. Surprised at noise level. Higher than anticipated. Food was excellent. Will definitely return.
Steak was cooked perfect and the coconut cake was amazing
The Peninsula Grill is always a great experience. It is my favorite restaurant in Charleston. I had the scallops and my husband had the rack of lamb. We topped things off with the coconut cake. It could not have been better. We will be back.
Outstanding as always! Never disappoints! Food is always a showstopper, not only in presentation but taste!
Wonderful place to eat and spend an evening. Good food! Good service. Sat on the warming porch which was perfect. Good view of Bay Area. Will eat there again on our next visit to Charleston.
It was absolutely lovely. The staff was attentive and the meal, outstanding!
One of the best choices for a dynamite night out in Charleston. Great food, nice specials. Service excellent. Place has a nice buzz.
Frantic was more like it
The problem with going where everyone goes or wants to be is
Everyone was there
The noise level was unbearable
Could not hear dinner guest nor wait staff
But the coconut cake was the salve for the dining experience wound
This restaurant always delivers perfection! I highly recommend.
Halibut and grilled salmon were both great choices.
Get the truffle butter
Delicious food and wonderful ambiance! Our server, Jonathan, was superb!
The entire experience was outstanding! You must have the famous Coconut Cake-to die for.
The expectation was high for this venerable institution and it did not disappoint. Service and food were very good to outstanding - it would've gotten an outstanding if it weren't for too much salt on the special fillet we ordered. But that was compensated for with the coconut cake which was as ridiculously good as everyone said it would be
Food was fine. Service irritating as they kept filling our wine glasses the minute we had a drop and we’ll before needed. Very pricey
Perfect evening spent at Peninsula Grille. Service outstanding! Wanted toast with the seared fois grass which arrived in a flash. From the mait're d to the wait staff, this is a reasonably priced lovely fine dining experience.
Your restaurant really provides a classy and comfortable setting in which to enjoy dining.
As for the food, per my wife who selected the scallop dish, the entree was outstanding.
I ordered the swordfish, it was good but almost on the dry side.
That said, we both enjoyed everything about our dining experience at your restaurant and will definitely dine with you again on our next visit to Charleston.
An exceptional experience with great ambiance and service. The only hiccup was when our waiter forgot to bring a specially arranged birthday cake for a member of our party and had to be reminded, which made for an awkward presentation.
Everything about this meal was perfect. The service was sublime, the food was exquisite, and the atmosphere was romantic. We were very excited to visit this restaurant during our trip to Charleston, and it lived up to, and exceeded, all of our expectations.
Beautiful courtyard...unfortunately it started to rain but we were quickly moved to a table inside...our server was attentive even after the move and, most importantly, the food was delicious! My husband had the lamb chops and said that they were probably the best he ever had!
No visit to Charleston is ever complete without at least one dining experience at the Peninsula Grill. Best She Crab soup I’ve ever eaten. All four of us bragged we chose the best items on the menu. The coconut cake is a must.
Josh was amazing and helped with my dietary restrictions.
Delicious food & great service! One of our favorite places! Highly recommend it!
Superb service and food triggerfish was exceptional. Corkage 35 but worth it depending on your wine
Fabulous birthday dinner! Food was fantastic!
Waitress was excellent and very attentive. They are trained to upsell the customers on wine and other upgrades to your meal. All recommendations were on point and our dinners and dessert were delish. Coconut cake is a must.
