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).

We went to Eleve for rooftop outdoor dining in Charleston. The restaurant was clean, and had a very nice appearance. Inside is classy, and traditional with a bar on one side with all the standard libations. The rooftop seating area does have a nice view of Charleston, but if you don’t want to sit at a high top table, then you can sit around a long glass table fire, or group off in a corner seating area with big, cozy chairs. Outside is very different from inside. The 90s music was cranking, the pink and purple lights were abundant. Lots of young energy all around. The menu was typical historic Charleston fare, but the salad selection was great. If you get tired of sitting by busy streets under a tiny umbrella during the pandemic, you may want to consider Eleve for a change of pace.

Beautiful rooftop dining. We were on our honeymoon, and it was super romantic, with colored lighting and fireplaces. Food was better than we expected...we loved everything we had. The only thing that was a little subpar were the filthy martinis (which were not made dirty at all...no olive juice cloudiness like you would expect) but everything else was perfect! Great service and would definitely recommend.

It was outside dining. The table for two was against a wall and our view was of another building and construction. However we could walk over to the nicer section which included a fireplace and lounge chairs. The food was great bar food. The service was excellent. The inside dining looked beautiful but due to CoVid everyone was outside

We thought this rooftop experience would be enjoyable,we found it to be disappointing as we were seated on the side with no outdoor lighting ,we couldn’t even tell we were on a rooftop it felt more like just being in an alley. This venue seems more well-suited for millennials. But For those with a more discriminating and refined expectation you will be underwhelmed.

The food and service was outstanding❣️💯 However, the noise level was insane! Our reservation was scheduled for a date at 7:15 pm. The host sat us right next to the bar and we couldn’t have a descent conversation. There were plenty of tables that were open away from the bar, but they choose to seat us in the noisy spot of the restaurant. This is a great place for a girls/guys night, but I highly recommend requesting a spot away from the bar if you’re on a date.

Service was horrible. It was a Sunday night and the place was empty, notwithstanding the server would disappear for extended periods of time. No one was at the bar but it took 15 min to get a glass of wine delivered. Food was ok but from a very limited menu. My fault for not checking the reviews first.

The service was terrible the poor waiter was new and we could clearly tell despite the fact that he never said it . He did not check on our table enough our water glasses went empty and took a long time to get refills , we were never asked if we would like to order another cocktail . The kitchen had turned off the waffle iron and it took a half hour before we got our food . By the time the waffles we brought out everyone else was done eating . At no point did the waiter acknowledge or offer something In Place of the waffles which might have resolved this issue. The manager walked by a few times and never stopped to ask how the dining experience was going . No one cleared plates when they visited the table. At the end when the bill came the waiter appeared surprised that I would ask to speak with a manager. Instead he took the check and removed the waffles and I never spoke with a manger . Very disappointed by the overall experience especially since they were busy . Customer service should always be the main focus of any restaurant.
