Ambiance was great, maybe a little loud. The fact that we were sitting at a big community table in the middle probably didn’t help. Also being on the end there were constantly servers running by.

My girlfriend said she really enjoyed her meal, the fresh catch I believe, but I was very disappointed in my meal. I ordered the fried chicken and it was extremely bland. We started with the oysters, and they were nothing to write home about.

I think it’s worth dining here once to see the building, but we more than likely won’t be returning.

The setting is (obviously) very interesting. The music in the bar part of the restaurant is lively and not quite so loud as to be obnoxious. The charcuterie is fabulous. The special app chicken liver mouse bread was a (not funny) joke. The twisted ravioli with sausage had very little sausage, and was average. The fried chicken may have been the best I have ever eaten. Service here, like everywhere during the transition, struggled,

Great service. Amazing ambiance. Food was good, not great. Pork chop was a little undercooked. Ravioli was great. Fried chicken was really good. Honey on the side is a better option. Fun night out and good drink selection.

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated within a few minutes. Our server was very friendly and tried to be accommodating. Our reservation was for 8p on a Sunday night. By that time they were already out of their special appetizer of the day as well as their only vegetarian option on the menu other than salad. We ordered 2 drinks from the bar - double tall rum and Coke (after finding out they were also out of any type of amber beer) and a clementine hard seltzer. Turns out they were also out of that but were able to go procure more, which took less than 10 minutes. Our server was very apologetic and told us they were going to comp the first round of drinks since they were out of so many things we tried to order. This didn’t happen. At the end of the day, our meal was good but we are in no hurry to return and won’t be recommending this restaurant. Our bill with tip was $220 and just not worth it with so many other options in the area.

The duck was great, so you should definitely try that if you are there. I got the pork chop and it was dry, bland with no kind of sauce and a tiny bit of sweet potato puree that wasn't enough for me to even use with all of the meat. For $35 dollars I could at least get a fair amount of puree if my meat is going to be dry. There are A LOT of other restaurants in Charleston that I could spend this kind of money at and get a much better meal.

A fabulous meal, served with professional and friendly style, in an amazing historic building. Our reservations were early (5:30 pm) and the atmosphere was very pleasant when we arrived. By the time we left, the noise level had grown quite a bit. Very joyous tables. If you're looking for an intimate dinner, we would suggest you arrive early or consider another choice. The quality and creative food was exceptional. Aiden, our server, was engaging, interesting and very professional.

Ignored reservation notes. Server was not attentive and had no knowledge of the menus ingredients. I wasn’t expecting anything, but a happy birthday from at least the hostess would’ve gone a long way since it was in my reservation. I Noticed every table around us get hummus and chips as the “bread” as I over heard it called at the table next to me. But it was never offered to us. Probably won’t return as there are so many better options to eat at living in downtown Charleston.

Had to pop in for lunch after we had cocktails our first day in Charleston. Lamb burger was perfect and my hubby ate ALL THE FRIES! (Which he never does- so they were THAT good!). Cocktails were perfect and not “premade” which I dislike. Definitely worth a visit even if to just see the unique interior
