The word “coterie," in its essence, means a group of people who come together to share their ideas. Unique perspectives are what brings flavor to our conversations and our relationships, and they thrive in the right environment.

Our style is an edited mix of flavorful dishes and drinks served in an intimate setting. Flavors come to the forefront as easily as the conversations held by the people enjoying the food. At Coterie, everyone brings their own story to the table.

The perfect patio for a gorgeous Saturday lunch out in Charleston. Been wanting to try this little place for awhile and I'm glad we finally got there.
Friendly service, fun cocktails and tasty Indian food with a southern twist. Had the brunch sampler that our server recommended and we were not disappointed. Could eat their okra every day! And the pumpkin spice chutney had just the right kick. We will be back.

Our table was too big for a party of 4. Table was broken and chairs were very uncomfortable. Was offered to be moved to a table for two which would have been too small for a party of 4. When I called to confirm my patio reservation I was told our table would be in the covered patio area but that did not happen. Service was disappointing, but food and music were good.

We love Indian food and in Charleston… it is VERY limited in that regard. This place would be considered more of Indian “fusion”, basically Indian with a plus! Not only was each dish unique with it’s own Indian twist but the cocktails were off the chart! They had a Bourbon Rye Manhattan style drink with a Banana flair… WHAT?! And a refreshing drink that had tequila/bourbon and cucumber…. DELISH! The outside covered area was quaint and cozy with excellent tunes laid down in the background. We both said this could be our new favorite place! Cheers!

Brilliant Indian/low country fusion food and delicious imaginative cocktails. Funky outdoor space - on a perfect night magical. Service probably meant to read as laid-back but can come across as lackadaisical.

Our entrees were brought at half hour intervals. The last was brought over an hour after ordering, in a cardboard to go box, as we had theater reservations. Thete were apologies, but no offer to comp anything,
Worst service ever in a Charleston restaurant.

Only on-line menu, to read on your cell phone. Didnt bring mine.

Those who got food and ate while the other two watched said the food was good, if overpriced.
A decent restaurant would have comped the entire meal.

We were there for 3hrs! It took over an hour to get our appetizers, and another hour and a half to get our food. Food was very good but very small portions and expensive. Not a good experience at all.

While the food was fine, unfortunately the restaurant had a hygiene issue. After two rounds of dirty dishes given two us, instead of an apology we were made to feel we were in the wrong. Cutlery with food residue was told to be “vintage”. Would not recommend!

Food was great! There was good Indian spice on everything we tried. A lot of very unique dishes and very flavorful. The music on the patio can be loud if you are under one of the speakers, but other tables away from it are perfectly fine. The cocktails were also really good!

My only complaint was on service. We had a party of 6 and there was a 15 minute gap between the first dish and the last dish being delivered to the table, so several people were already finished with their meal before some ever got their main course.

Overall though, a great spot and I will definitely be going back again.

Food was very good except when we ordered the beef short ribs we got pork instead and the waitstaff didn't bother telling us they switched to pork. More lighting needed, could barely see what we were eating.

I know that restaurants are having a difficult time hiring experienced servers so I'm not going to criticize the very polite but very inexperienced server at our table. It's the food that caused me to rate this restaurant so poorly.
The amount of food was skinny. The flavors were mediocre. The prices were ridiculous for what we got. The main dishes come with dry, flavorless white rice that make up the majority of the food on the plate. We've been to many wonderful Indian restaurants in the South but this is certainly not one of them.
We did not order a mixed drink but we heard several tables around us praising the drinks they ordered so maybe Cotorie will evolve into a fantastic bar with awesome drinks that also serves Indian food.

Inauthentic. This makes a mockery of Indian cuisine. There was nothing at all worthy of praise. The cuisine lacked any kind of spice and was extremely bland. Value for money was nonexistent. This was portrayed as a modern take on Indian cuisine…I think not. Avoid at all costs.
