Service was super slow. Waitress never came back to ask how our food was or take additional drink orders once we were served. Food was good but not worth it for the money.

The food, service and atmosphere were outstanding! My wife had the scallops and I had the lamb. Both were absolutely delicious. We shared a piece of the coconut cake to wind down our evening. It was fabulous. Anyone looking for a very special evening should go to the Peninsula Grill in Charleston.

Everything was perfect! We were celebrating our anniversary. The host immediately wishes us a happy anniversary. Our server was excellent. The She crab soup, Scallops and my husband got a Filet. All were perfect. Also, I got the Jalapeño Passion fruit margarita which was wonderful as well. Everything was truly perfect. Thanks for a great evening.

After a year of pandemic isolation, it was a true joy to experience fine dining again, and Peninsula Grill offers the very best of fine dining. The wait staff was incredibly attentive, subtle, and efficient. Our sommelier assisted in choosing the absolutely most perfect wine for our meals. And the new chef has put his touch on all the dishes, ensuring that every plate is perfect in taste and presentation before being presented to the guests. The entire evening was a breath of fresh air. Highly recommended.

Great place! Been here many times and it’s always good however this time it was off. Quality of the food was not great, even the coconut cake looked and tasted different. Also noted the prices have gone up substantially so I would expect the quality to be the same.

Greeted by Erich at the front - hospitality plus. Excellent service by Ben and the cuisine was super yummy. Escargot and filed greens were excellent and creative - swordfish special was excellent. Very good wine list and love the understated ambiance. Wonderful evening - just hard to get reservations but worth the wait. 😊🍷

First visit to Peninsula Grill and it was perfect. Food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Escargot, rack of lamb, veal chop were all cooked perfectly, presented beautifully, and textures and flavors were wonderful. Server Nabila was friendly, knowledgeable about all items and about Charleston. She was supported by the entire staff and manager to make for a memorable meal.

The restaurant inside the Planter's Inn serves amazing steaks. All the food was good, and the service was also top notch. There was a bit of sticker shock as it was the first time indulging in fine dining since hyperinflation began four months earlier, on Jan. 20, 2021. The top price was 100 for an aged filet. Normally one wouldnt expect to see that for a piece of meat anywhere outside Charleston's notorious red-light district.

Very nice setting and welcoming bar as you come in. However checkin/hostess was less welcome than expected for a higher end establishment. Dining room was very loud, I definitely recommend a table outside on the patio. Food was nice, wide selections and everything we had was very good. But table service was again just ok, not up to expectations or for the price you’re paying. Don’t think we’ll return, lots of other options in Charleston to consider.

Josh, our server, was outstanding. My husband loved his foi gras and steak Oscar. My escargo was similar to pencil erasers, tough and without taste Josh had them removed from our bill when he saw I was not eating them. My steak, for some reason was very tough even though it was the same cut as my husband's and the same medium rare although not Oscar. On a positive note the deserts were great
