We had made reservations a week in advance and thought we were booking the afternoon tea, however we found out that you have to call the restaurant to book the tea. The table next to us had the tea and it looked very good. We were a bit disappointed that we didn’t get to try it, but the food we had was very good. The service was very good. Overall a good experience.
Our first time at East Bay Meeting House and we will be back. Ivy was very friendly and attentive. The food was fabulous!!!!
We were in town for our daughters engagement and took both of our boys. The food was amazing, but the charming experience is my favorite . Everything was delicious and the service was great! Can’t wait to be back!
The ambiance is great, but they were woefully understaffed, with the poor bartender doubling as the waitress for all 8 tables. There was no hostess. The food was average - not what you’d expect on East Bay Street.
Cute little place with very friendly and professional staff!
We didn’t even have a chance to have lunch. The
When we arrived the waitress was upset we were there and didn’t believe we had reservations. Then she said loudly to the whole restaurant “don’t let any more people in guys!”
They were short handed that Friday night, but the sole waitress did a great job covering and keeping up with the busy tables.
Love this Parisian-style cafe!
Wonderful meal and exceptional service(Robin was awesome!). Definitely will visit again.
Excellent atmosphere and delicious food
This place is lovely ! Small and classic, gives you an intimate and personal vibe...really a fabulous spot and highly recommended. An undiscovered gem!!!
The food was excellent. The latte was one of the best I've had. It was a perfect late morning breakfast.
This was such a nice experience. We went for restaurant week and the menu was limited but very tasty. The atmosphere was great and it was about the dining experience, they didn't rush you or push you out at all
From our arrival, till we left, we had impeccable service. Very friendly and a nice, comfortable environment. The food was delicious. Each course was better than the first. We will be back!!
I personally didn't care much for all of the food, but that was completely just personal preference. My husband was over the moon about everything that was served. The atmosphere was amazing and they were able to seat us early, which was very appreciated. Our waitress was dressed a bit unprofessionally in my opinion (very short tight dress, sneakers, hair thrown up in messy ponytail), especially for a more upscale place. But overall, we had a very nice date night and would definitely consider going back. Recommended for anyone who enjoys dishes that are cooked with plenty of wine.
Very quaint place. Great service. Food was good, especially fig Gorgonzola app.
Service was very good and food was excellent
New Years Eve
The food and service was great.
We have been here many times and it never disappoints! We went on Christmas Eve this time since we couldn’t travel hone for the holidays and wanted something special. The owner is always so wonderful in his greeting to us and the space is warm and inviting. We also felt “safe” with spacing and door was open for proper airflow during this crazy pandemic. We enjoyed a five course meal and a lovely bottle of wine. Each course was perfect!
Can’t say enough about this place and have already planned our next visit in a couple weeks with friends.
Was very cozy and food excellent! Very small could be larger!
Very enjoyable visit. Charming and cozy with delicious food.
Great little cafe styled restaurant near the water. Had a nice quiet breakfast on a Sunday morning!
Great breakfast. Very fresh. Waitress exceptional. Will be back.
Hidden gem of a restaurant. Owner, Robin, was a delight to talk to after dinner. Pork medallions were delicious and nicely presented. Beef Bourgogne was also very tasty. Will definitely return.
My wife and I made impromptu Sunday Brunch reservations. We really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, deep window sills and a view onto an old cobblestone street in Charleston's French Quarter. Great food and service! The daily specials must be tried and the Fig Terrine starter.
Me and my girlfriend visited on Halloween night. It was very quiet and not busy at all. I had a delicious glass of sparkling wine, the shrimp scampi was yummy, and my girlfriend loved the chicken frances. She also enjoyed a cup of tea. Very cute, small, adorable restaurant.
Long wait even with reservations but understandable with limited seating. Food was excellent after a long wait. Service was so-so.
Great menu - Great food - Great staff! We had a truly enjoyable time!
Fresh and delicious. Very quaint
Small, cozy atmosphere...good food and great service
Have enjoyed this place a few times in the past few years. Every experience has been great a d this one lived up to that expectation!! Erin was our server, she was prompt, professional, and friendly. Our meal was a pork dish and a beef dish, both amazing. This place is a little gem!!
East Bay Cafe was a great delight! First time we dined there. It was elegant, with white fabric table cloths and napkins, excellent, friendly service. The food was seved at a grat pace, cocktails were delicious. our appetizers and dinners were varied and all prepared beautifully and very tastey. We'll be back again, and will bring our friends!
Great food and Service... It's our second time eating here and both times were great. Intimate and attentive service...
Lovely restaurant and scrumptious food! The decor and furniture was the perfect atmosphere. We felt very safe eating here despite COVID-19.
A great looking quiet spot in Charleston. Excellent ambiance and lighting. The service was friendly and prompt. Everything started great. Our drinks were pleasant and well made. The fruit and cheese board was fresh and well assembled. Our meals, on the other hand, were very sub-par. My wife had the beef bourguignon, and it arrived lukewarm. Somehow the beef, though tender, was very dry and difficult to eat. I had the Chicken Francaise that was tough, served on a bed of mushy overcooked angel hair pasta, and tasted as though the capers might have been an afterthought while the chicken overcooked.
I had hoped for a much better meal that evening and was very disappointed.
A quaint dining experience that we enjoyed very much.
Very good, as always! The pain perdu for dessert was excellent! my husband loved his beef bourguignon. I had the chicken francese which was just ok. Next time I will go back to the pork medallions. Staff wore masks and requested guests without one, to put them on. All in all a great dining experience. We will definitely return!
