The food was delicious and we had a wonderful server. He made several recommendations and did not disappoint. The banana panna cotta was amazing. I highly recommend this restaurant for that special occasion!
Food and service were perfect .
Joel our waiter was outstanding .
Only fault was very noisy . We had
A table behind our table that I think
they thought ,the lounder they were the
more fun they were having ...
Wow! What an amazing staff. I actually messed up the date on my reservation and when we showed up the place was packed. I thought no way would we get a table, yet they accommodated us. The service through the meal was amazing. If you own a restaurant, dine here so you can see how a great staff operates together. Oh, and the food.....off the chain amazing.
Excellent food and service!
It was wonderful! My boyfriend proposed to me after dinner in the courtyard .
We loved this restaurant. From the time we walked in until we received our bill, the service was first rate, the atmosphere was perfect and the food was outstanding. I will go back.
Excellent service. Excellent cocktails and wine. Very good food. Traditional decor (nice to see for a change). Very noisy. Expensive.
Our favorite restaurant in Charleston. Great staff and we love Delia!
Perfect level of ambiance service and quality of meal.
These restaurants are harder to find. There is a wonderfully designed and executed menu in a formal atmosphere. However the staff makes you feel relaxed. That staff is special, a team, a family. They love their work and help each other. We travel a lot USA and Europe. We treasure the restaurants which have respect for the food and the customer. We admit liking dressing up and high end. This is the kind of restaurant we look for. The food was the best in Charleston, because of its subtlety of flavor and use of product.
Peninsula Grille is not inexpensive but we have paid much more for restaurant experiences with less class and the ala carte trick. Peninsula is now one of our favorites in the world!
This was one of the best dinners we have had in awhile. And we go out to nice restaurants in our hometown of Boston ALOT. Service was amazing, love how they focused on not rushing us but being attentive. Drinks and food all fabulous. Will definitely go back next time we visit Charleston. OH, and trust me on that famous coconut cake. I really don't even like coconut but the cake was out of this world! Must save room to try.
First visit to Charleston, so we wanted to have a memorable meal. The Peninsula Grill didn’t disappoint. The Field Pea and Collard Green Soup was delicious as was the Cornmeal Crusted Snapper. We didn’t have the famous coconut cake, but we took note of its appeal as it went by on its way to other tables. Overall, this is a special spot.
Food prices were reasonable for atmosphere and service but wine by bottle prices were outrageous!! Most bottles were well over the $100 range. Very limited choice for under $200/bottle. In over 25 years of enjoyable dinners I've never seen my husband flinch at prices of wine in a upscale restaurants where food prices and wine prices are so divergent!
The desert is the best!
Very special place
Food was great! Service was awesome ❤️
Elegant service; wonderful atmosphere
This place continues the tradition of excellence. The food is simply marvelous, the service in impeccable and the wine sommelier is outstanding. We've been coming here for years and have never been disappointed.
Peninsula Grill never disappoints.
Went for our 10 year anniversary. Amazing food and outstanding service by our waitress from Colorado.
Great food and especially great service! Our waitress was helpful and showed a great personality. We will definitely return to Peninsula Grill!👍👍👍👍👍🍸🍸🍸👏👏
It was a wonderful experience all around. I was concerned the coconut cake might be over hyped, but not so. It is worth every accolade and an essential finale to an already beautifully prepared meal!
This was my second time dining at the Peninsula Grill. I had dined here a year ago over the Thanksgiving Holiday as well. Beautiful dining room, the service was not as good as I had remembered it, my mother’s scallops were terribly salty, my flounder was good, and the coconut cake was just as amazing as I had remembered it! There was no concern shown or steps to accommodate my mothers dinner concerns. Just a comment that scallops can be salty. Scallops are one of my mother’s favorite entrées so we were both a bit surprised by that response. She has had many a scallop in her day.
An excellent Thanksgiving dinner (once again!). Superb menu and great, friendly service! A must in Charleston!
Found Peninsula Grille on a search for a good Thanksgiving mean during a week in Charleston. This restaurant is everything one could hope for for a special meal. The location in downtown Charleston makes it convenient to this historic area.
We were immediately seated and then greeted by the name on the reservation by our waiter. His service and that of the other 4 or 5 people who brought and removed plates was perfect. They were attentive but not intrusive. They were 100% professional as one would have been used to decades ago.
The food was, without exception, perfect. I will happily return to this restaurant during my next visit to Charleston.
Get the #ultimatecoconutcake, everyone says it’s amazing because... it’s amazing. A must do in Charleston!
Excellent dinner on Thanksgiving!
We had our Thanksgiving Dinner here with no regrets. What an awsome and classical atmosphere, service was impeccable and everything was just perfect.
We had a fabulous Thanksgiving meal at the Peninsula Grill! The food and service were fantastic.
Wonderful dinner with great service. A must while in Charleston.
I found the food and room to be very good and would definitely go back and do recommend the restaurant. It was nice to be able to talk without having to shout. I thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Went to Peninsula Grill for our 30th wedding anniversary. The entire experience was outstanding! Excellent food and excellent staff. I would highly recommend to anyone.
Our waiter Dan was very attentive and professional as well as personable. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening including the signature coconut cake and coffee.

First time for actual dinner and it was great. Thanks
I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday. Service was impeccable. Everything that touched our lips was amazing. The sommelier was great with helping us choose wine.
The cuisine and service, along with the ambiance, at Peninsula Grill is simply SUBLIME. Highly recommended for an ultimate dining experience.
We’ve been dining at the Penninsula Grill for many years snd it never disappoints. Although jackets and ties are encouraged we sawseversl men in dress shirts and no jacket or tie. Lovely champagne bar to enjoy before dinner.
I always have a fabulous experience here. Tonight was no exception!! Our server Danielle was amazing and knowledgeable about the menu...I enjoyed a flounder special while two others in our party had the scallops!! Everything was cooked to perfection!! Service is superb!! Wine list great, Bulliet Manhattan fabulous!! Thanks for another great experience!
Service was perfect, food amazing, great wine selection
