Impeccable service. All of the appetizers and entrees were so well prepared and presented. Our group was looking forward to this dinner and were impressed by the quality and service at the P Grill. Very good wine list, we had the Madeira flight after dinner...quite a treat.

You can't go wrong when you dine at Peninsula Grill. All aspects of the dinner were top notch! If you can save enough room, stop at the bar after dinner and have a slice of their coconut cake and an after dinner cocktail.

We had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived early for our reservation but they were very accommodating and seated us earlier at a nice table. It was a pleasant enjoyable evening. The food was also delicious. We plan to go back again soon.

Wonderful service, great Covid isolation in a lovely environment. The grilled scallops remain the standard by which we judge all others. They remain the best we have had anywhere in the world.

Ate indoors as the patio books early. Well over 6 ft around our table. Jessica took very good care of us and our Texas guests

I was disappointed that there was no mention of my wife's and I s 50th wedding anniversary. I specifically put it in the comments or requests area when making the reservation. All in all a good experience and we will be back but disappointed

Every effort was made to provide us with the best experience ever. Our waiter Justin was knowledgeable regarding our food choices and extremely tentative to our every need. We were Impressed when we were greeted by name and he even acknowledged my Birthday. This is a five star restaurant at its best!

I was so disappointed in Peninsula Grill, Charleston SC. The atmosphere here is good (patio outside) and I really wanted to like this place. The service was bad (like not asking what temp. a steak should be cooked and also asking our table if we would like to speak with the sommelier when it was obvious that they don't have a somm on the staff or at least there wasn't one there that evening). The food was terrible, not quite airline bad but cruise ship buffet bad. We ended up feeding it to a dog on the way back to our hotel. The tab for two people was $500+

A truly wonderful dining experience. Every dish was expertly prepared. The duck breast I ordered as my entree was the best I've ever had, and nowhere else has ever been close. The coconut cake is as good as they say!

My wife had the Ossetra Caviar as her first course. It was served with the classic accompaniments (minced onions, egg whites, etc.) and miniature blinis - delightful.

I started with the Burgundy Escargot, served on Ciabatta with a mixed green salad - not traditional, but tasty.

For my main course, I had the Prime Ribeye topped with Seared Foie Gras and Brandy-Peppercorn Jus. It was out of this world. I've had great steaks everywhere from NYC, Paris, to Fiorenza and this was simply the best. It was seared crusty on the outside, but moist and medium-rare in the middle.

My wife had the Chicken Breast with a field pea cassoulet. It was good, but not in the realm of the other dishes.

For dessert, we had their Coconut Cake. I simply don't have the words to describe how good it was.

When I made the reservations, I did not realize what a fabulous restaurant this was. We'll definitely go back next time we're in Charleston.

It was great! The food was amazing. The coconut cake was incredible. Great ambiance though there were some belligerent guests that would have moments of yelling. The service was great. Felt cared for. I will recommend and I will come back when visiting Charleston again.

Make reservations.

Our experience was awesome! From when we got there, the maître d' could not have been nicer. We did not have a reservation for an outside table however he took care of things that accommodate our group of six. We sit down at the bar and the bartenders are incredible. Cory was our bartender and he was amazing. The experience only got better with the superb food. However, our waiter Dana was so nice and definitely made our evening special.

We come from out of state to go here for my birthday. While the food and ambience are still amazing, the service has notably gone down hill this year. The female server was pushy; not at all warm and welcoming.

This is a great place for a special night out in Charleston. The food and drinks are superb, as is the service. It's a little pricey, but you get what you pay for...and at Peninsula Grill you get a fabulous dinner and atmosphere to match.
