    The pair martinis to start were excellent. Caesar salad and shrimp and Brie soup were very good. We each had fish and both were prepared very very well. Tosh, our server was friendly and professional. This was our first time at Celeste but definitely will not be our last. Live music was great as well!

    The dinner and service were exceptional. We had the wedge salad which you can clearly share for two people. Then entrees were salmon and tuna crudo. Both entrees were delicious and wonderfully prepared. Our server Miles Was very attentive and it was a great outing ! Thanks to the entire team at Celeste. See you again soon.

    Two couples ate there on Friday, 2/16. The men each had the pork chop, one woman had the scallops, and I had the crab cakes. The men said that the flavor on the pork chops was strange. The chops were cooked correctly but the red sauce on them overwhelmed the flavor of the pork and was not a good taste. I was told that the scallops were very good. I had the crab cakes. They lacked flavor. The plate had two large crab cakes, two fried green tomatoes and some wild rice. Overall, we all said that while the ambiance and service were wonderful, the food was just so so. We won't be going back again and such a waste for such a beautiful place with such great servers.

    We’ve been to Celeste several times and the meals are always outstanding. Oysters were fresh, calamari is delicious. For entrees we had the redfish and the lobster both cooked perfectly. Celeste has certainly become one of our favorites.

    We experienced delicious food, great service. Thank god for a restaurant where its live music (classical guitar) was lovely and volume just right: adding a dimension of enjoyment to the experience and not forcing us to raise our voices or to hear the conversation. Overall it was one of the best dining experiences I've had on Hilton Head.

    Celeste is a fine restaurant with an interesting, but limited menu. It is a great place for a romantic dinner and the atmosphere is that of a first-class restaurant. It lives up to that impression across-the-board. I was disappointed in the tuna tower. First the quality of the tuna was not sufficient for the dish and the dish was also a little too warm. A bad combination. The Caesars salad was excellent, and my jambalaya was good if a little too tame for my taste. All-in-all, Celeste is a fine restaurant; however, we won't be returning as I need to be blown away to agree to pay a fee for using my credit card. This entire trend is one of the minor, but annoying side effects of inflation and COVID derangement syndrome. I will give the waiter the benefit of the doubt when she didn't inform me that there would be an extra charge, which didn't show up until they had run the bill. Too bad they aren't smart enough to find a way to make up for the charge by the card company than throwing it our face.

    First time at Celeste. One of us chose the Restaurant Week menu, two off their main menu. All meals were fabulous. Nice presentation, warm and professional servers. Beautiful guitar music at bar setting. We sat at comfortable seating at high top table. Highly recommend. Look forward to going back!

    First time there, it’s restaurant week figured we would try it out. We had the special 4 course meal. My wife had the prime rib and crab cake combo. She said the crab cake was good, but the prime rib was very small but tender. I had the scallops and red fish, it was ok but uninspired nothing special. We paid $125. Had two ice tea and coffee with dessert.
