This was a strange dining experience. On a 70 degree Friday night in January, you wouldn’t expect a rooftop bar to be empty. The hostess took us to the table before she cleaned it. It took 5 minutes for a server to come and then 10 more for the drinks. My daughters entree came out after the rest of us finished our meal- no comp or even apology. The fries and burger were good. The rest was average or below. We spent $15o for what should have been about $75 of food. The vibe in the place was cool and the view was pretty. I would do drinks and apps there. That’s it.

Cool spot overlooking Charleston. The outdoor area is nice to hang out in. Can get very dark at nighttime though. Service was okay. The food is standard American fare.

Our family of four with two older teenagers went here for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the French toast, egg white omelette and the avocado toast. The Bloody Mary was perfect and my husband enjoyed the mimosas. I️ appreciate the eclectic aesthetic and the beautiful rooftop views. Most importantly, we were completely taken care of - service was amazing!

The appetizers were good. My entree and my guest entree were sourd and the beer was skunked. Made me worry about the cleanliness and inventory control. Too bad this experience was awful, it is a cool atmosphere. I will not be going back there again or recommending to anyone in my industry.

A very pretty venue in a classy hotel, The Grand Bohemian. We were looking forward to outside dining but the weather did not cooperate. The food was good, we didn’t choose anything spectacular from the menu, the burger and the beef sandwich. Both were well prepared and very tasty, served with truffle fries for an up charge. Staff were welcoming and all wore masks. Hope to visit again for in better times.

Birthday lunch for my wife. Very welcoming, service was prompt and helpful, glasses of wine were good selections, good menu options, food was great. Rooftop area looked terrific with fire pit areas but it was too cold outside the day we were there. Definitely will go back. Only complaint was that the restaurant and hotel do not validate at the adjacent public parking lot.

This is such a cool place. The interior design is amazing and the outside rooftop area is so beautiful. The service was a little slow but it appeared they were understaffed and we weren’t in a hurry anyway. We had the truffle fries which were amazing, and shared the burger and the pizza. The cocktails were also yummy.

There was live music the night we went so it was very loud but fun energy. Food was good and cocktails were very good. Our server was a little slow, had to ask a few times for water/silverware/app plates where we finally just asked someone else. She was a little more attentive after that. Servers were wearing masks but restaurant and bar were pretty full.
Would love to visit in a non-Covid world, I bet this bar would be really fun and outside area is awesome.

The gentleman in the suit who sat us was very rude and acted as if we were an inconvenience. The server was very nice. The place was beautiful and I would have loved the open seat by the fire but wasn't about to ask the rude man to move us. I was very excited to try the cheesecake but it was honestly the worst slice I've had. I would come back to try again and order something different but honestly I'd rather spend my money at a place that treats their guests a little better.

More like an LA modern bar for people younger than 30yrs old. Loud music if dining inside. You find the wait staff to be seated - they do not look for you. Probably best to eat outside. Kitchen made great food. Service lacking.

The menu was very limited. Would liked to have seen more options for main course. My salad was delicious. Husband didn’t think the value of his chicken meal was as great for the price but flavor was good. Would have liked to see more luxury seating or more high top tables to take in the view. Wait staff was rushed and had to wait for silverware, Atkins after our appetizer came. Asked for more dressing and it never came (supporting wait staff).
