First time, last time.

We had reservations for 8PM on the rooftop. Arrived there a little early and was told they just needed to bus our table and we could wait at the bar and someone would seat us. By 8:45 we rechecked on what was going on and only then did they seat us at a table, mind you, had been cleaned and bussed since we had arrived. Then it took 20 mins for a server to even come to our table but they seemed more than helpful to the other tables but for some reason couldn’t bother with us. So while we wait, the tables that sat after us were being served. Service overall was awful especially the manager that at the most delivered food to tables but mostly was just checking his phone. Food wise it was sub par. Nothing overly special. The pizza was greasy, the beef carpaccio was WAY salty and the calamari was actually pretty good but not overly memorable.

Overall would recommend any other rooftop bar over this place. The hype is way too large for awful service and sub par food.

We had an amazing brunch. The Waugu carpaccio and charcuterie starters were excellent. Everyone agreed that the charcuterie board was perfect. We loved all components, and they went great together. Two of our party got the red velvet waffles and devoured them. (They were like cake.) The avocado toast with poached eggs was great, as was the kale Caesar with salmon and the salmon bagel sandwich. Bloody Marys were some of the best we've had. Great Father's Day + Bday celebration! Excellent service by Audrey. We will be back.

This place was everything I could have imagined and more.
The service was excellent. The food was so delicious.
I traveled here from Michigan, and I must say this restaurant made my trip here 10 times better. This is a great place for dinner for a night out on the town.

I have dined there in the past and had great experiences. This time the service was very slow and the food was subpar. I understand that restaurants are short staffed however there were two servers on the floor servicing four tables. We had to ask the hostess to send our server over for water, more drinks and additional silverware. The food was not warm when it came to the table. My order was correct however all of the items described were not in my dish.

Delicious truffle frites & cocktails. We had the sun-dried tomato personal pizza, BLT, & mushroom burger. Very comfortable velvet bucket chairs. Chose to enjoy the a/c & dine indoors vs in the heat on the rooftop. I’m sure that must be much more enjoyable in the evening.

It took 5-8 minutes before anyone came by to take our drink order & greet us.

The server highly recommended the kale Cesar over the grouper to my fiancé, she was very disappointed

I had the chicken breast, that was pretty good as well as the truffle fries.

Overall, an aggressively mediocre experience at the cost of a fine dining experience.

Most likely will not be returning for dinner, maybe drinks and apps on the deck.

It was a little too "energetic" for us- as far as noise level. By 6:30-we couldn't hear each other at all. Our server was great-definitely the high point of the evening

The food was good and the service. I had the kale salad with shrimp which was yummy and truffle fries. Best french fries ever!
We shared the cheesecake and it was great too.
The only thing is my chair was uncomfortable. Apparently the seat was worn out and I sank down too much. I weigh 117lbs so it was not my weight. It also smelled funny and the door to the ladies room was very dirty.

Very nice food and great service. I got a delicious chicken dish and our table shared a charcuterie board. The cocktails were a bit too sweet for my liking and the views werent really that great- it's generally speaking a fun atmosphere for a bit but seemed a bit overpriced to be honest.

Initially we arrived for our outside rooftop seating and the hostess attempted to seat us inside. I had confirmed with her that morning when she called to confirm the reservation. We get seated outside and watch the same thing happen to another group—they set a reservation for 4 outside and they’d only set a table for 2. It took 15 minutes for our drinks to come out and another 10 for the waitress to come back around for our order (she didn’t deliver the drinks). The food was good for the price. Nothing quite jumped out as amazing. Honestly just expected better.

We had to wait 45 minutes to get someone to take our order. After that the service was fine. The Grouper was not seasoned and lacked taste. Overall, a fair experience. Many other options in the city

The food was not spectacular but it was more than satisfactory. The atmosphere and service were fine and the pricing was about what we expected. It’s worth a try if you see something on the menu that interests you but I’m not sure I would go back with so many other choices in Charleston.

We had a Saturday reservation for the outdoor patio. When we arrived the hostess made our mere presence feel like a complete irritance. Not the best start, but we had the best waitstaff, Audrey was outstanding. A real improvement from the hostess. It wasn't overly busy but the bar was a little slow to get our drinks. The food was really good, we got the burger and a flatbread pizza.

Nice views, good cocktails. Audrey really went above and beyond in her service.

Had an impromptu breakfast there and was more than pleasantly surprised. I always request my bacon crispy and places rarely cook it as asked. Bacon came out perfectly. Great atmosphere on rooftop above the Grand Bohemian. Server was very nice and very attentive. I’ll be back soon!

I can only speak to the service, which was the lady that greeted us for our reservation, she was very apologetic for the noise level and the fact that there were two banquets going so there was no seating, she did say if we found seating that they would accommodate us. We left.

Delicious food, nice atmosphere with very little noise fir a rooftop restaurant. Because the restaurant became busy, it took a while to get our checks, but otherwise this was a great experience and super affordable.
