My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Peninsula Grill during our annual girls weekend in Charleston. Our waiter, David, was amazing. Impeccable service, delicious food and a wonderful atmosphere. The Ultimate Coconut Cake definitely lived up to its legend!

The dining experience was highlighted by the ambience and service with a wonderful menu selection toppings off a
excellent evening! From the salad to the main course and with a great wine suggested by the very professional
sommelier, we will remember the evening for a long time!

I ordered the prime bone-in ribeye, and it had way too much “marbling” for a $60 steak. Never again.

Service was great.

Wonderful experience for our first night in Charleston. Danielle was our server. She was very attentive and the service was top notch. The She-Crab soup was velvety smooth and rich and full of crab meat. The ribeye was cooked well and had great flavor. Probably one of the best steaks I’ve had in a long while. Highly recommend while visiting Charleston!!

Love the soft surfaces which are both warm feeling, and provides for quiet dining & conversation. Visually, it's very private as well, with it only having 3 narrow windows, all looking out onto a beautiful courtyard.

Everything about this dinner was fabulous. The espresso martini, the lobster ravioli, pan seared scallops and the toffee ice cream sundae. Compliments to the chef. Just visiting Charleston for the first time. So happy we picked this restaurant.

Fantastic food and service. Our server and the entire staff made our anniversary very special with a complimentary appetizer and dessert. Can’t remember our servers name, but he was excellent. Had an after dinner cordial at the bar and talked to the bartender who was excellent as well

Overall? A very enjoyable evening. The food and the service were terrific. We were immediately directed to a table that had clearly been set up for us - in the bar. This was definitely a bit of a surprise that we weren't pleased with, but as the evening wore on the food and the service made up for it.

However, because it IS unusual to be seated in a bar area at an upscale establishment without being asked about it beforehand, I can't give full marks to your restaurant. I certainly won't reserve with you online again without speaking with someone from the restaurant to confirm our arrangements.

Fair warning, under different circumstances or with other customers this could prove to be an unpleasant issue.

We went for our anniversary based on recommendations we heard. Initially they were slow with the service but by the end of our dinner they were very good. The atmosphere was exceptional; we ate in the court yard which is first come first serve regardless of having a reservation. The waiter was clearing the table after the appetizers and knocked a water glass over which splashed all over my wife. They were very apologetic. The maître d' talked to the host of the Planter's Inn which they are a part of and got a room where my wife could use a hair dryer to dry off her clothes. The dinner itself was very good and due to the unfortunate accident they did not charge for the lobster that my wife had. The coconut cake was outstanding.

To begin. Food was delicious... We did not order an appetizer so our wait to eat was incredibly long. The waitress tried to explain that because we had not ordered an appetizer the chef was not prepared to serve our food in a timely manner. The restaurant was relatively empty when we arrived...

Also? The waitress spoke to quickly and to softly.. we could not understand a word she was saying.. She could not compensate for the escalating rising noise level. It was very annoying!!!! Having said that she was polite and I’m sure was trying her best ..,.

Easily made a 8:45 pm reservation on Open Table for Peninsula Grill. I had read the Peninsula Grill within the Planter's Inn was a must for their coconut cake and champagne. When we arrive the hostess abruptly let me know that they didn't take reservations for dessert until after 10 pm, but recognized that we had an online reservation. There were plenty of tables available; however, we were seated in the noisy and cramped bar. Barring that part of the experience, the wait staff was excellent as was their signature coconut cake and the recommended dessert wine.

We had a wonderful dinner for 6 celebrating my fathers 85th birthday. There was a quite large group adjacent to us, they were loud and so it prevented our table from sharing conversation as a group which was too bad.
But we loved our server Delia and had a very nice meal including the always delicious Coconut Cake.

One of several visits for us and again, wonderful. Jonathan our waiter was attentive and sharp. Mark, the sommelier, was pleasant and checke d back several times on our wine selection. Food was outstanding, cooked perfectly and hot. All in all a very pleasurable experience .
I should also mention that we had a drink at the bar prior to dinner and found the bartender to be affable, accommodating and a pleasure to talk to.
