    We loved this restaurant! We are from Cincinnati and wanted to try a romantic steak dinner. The food was delicious and the service was amazing! We compared it to Jeff Ruby’s if you’ve ever been to that restaurant! Everything was spectacular and we will definitely will be returning when we come back to Charleston! Ask for Scott as your waiter; he did such a wonderful job!

    We celebrated our 20th anniversary at your restaurant and had a lovely evening overall. Our server was friendly and attentive. However, there were two areas where the experience could have been even better. Firstly, I ordered the lamb and requested it to be cooked medium-well. I then clarified that I preferred it well done, with no pink in the center. I understand some chefs prefer not to cook meat well done, but unfortunately, the lamb arrived with a pink center. I opted not to send it back as I didn't want to disrupt the flow of the evening, but it would have been ideal to receive it cooked to my preference. Secondly, we informed our server about a nut allergy at the beginning of the meal. While we didn't order dessert, to our surprise, the server brought out a complimentary plate for our anniversary that had pistachio macarons. This was a kind gesture, but it could have been a serious issue if we hadn't already mentioned the allergy. Despite these minor hiccups, we enjoyed our anniversary dinner. However, a little more attention to these details would make your restaurant an even more impressive choice for special occasions.

    Thank you for choosing our restaurant to celebrate your 20th anniversary, and for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We apologize for the two areas where your experience fell short of expectations. Firstly, regarding the preparation of the lamb, we regret that it did not meet your preference for a well-done cook. Your feedback has been shared with our culinary team to ensure that we better accommodate guest. Secondly, we apologize for the oversight regarding the nut allergy, we understand the seriousness of food allergies. We will reinforce our allergy protocol with our team to prevent such occurrences in the future. We're pleased to hear that despite these minor hiccups, you enjoyed your anniversary dinner with us. Warm regards, Dutch Andrus Peninsula Grill

    The server was very good. The kitchen was very very slow. It took about an 1 hour and half for our main course. We were told they had a large party ahead of our order- not a good excuse at a restaurant of that quality and price point.

    Brenda and I had the most delightful dinner last night at Peninsula Grill outdoor garden. The weather was perfect for being in the outdoor section and the noise level was quiet compared to what it was indoors. Our server Kaj and Manager Judge did their best to take care of us all evening. The Flounder ceviche and Kettle One Martinis started us off with a bottle of sparking water on the side. For main course Brenda had the Fish special with a side of the Swiss chard and I had the Seared Scallops with a side of whipped potatoes. The bread service was awesome as well with delicious salted butter. This was our first time outdoors and loved it. Thank you Peninsula Grill for a great romantic evening and dinner.

    I’ve read some recent reviews of the Peninsula Grill and I must say our experience was nothing short of spectacular. We had early reservations since we had symphony tickets. The She Crab soup was the best I have had in Charleston. It arrived hot, and in a generous portion topped off with Sherry. We both had the evening special surf and turf. The beef medallions were perfectly cooked and the lobster tails were delicious. We savored a White Chocolate crème brûlée for dessert. Our server was well organized and attentive. It was a true dining pleasure!
