Poor review due to poor service on a slow night. There are too many dining options in Charleston for that to happen. The manager/host was nice and tried to be helpful and we appreciated her service. However, it shouldn't be her job to be our server who barely acknowledged us. We could see he was more than accomodating to a group a few tables down. Food and decor was nice. The rooftop could use a few heaters. The wine bar downstairs closes too early in my opinion at 9:30 pm.
Saw that it had a rooftop so we went there for a late lunch. Unfortunately, the outside tables were all taken. Didn’t know what to expect, but my wife and I had a glass of wine and a sandwich. We were not disappointed. My wife said her fish sandwich was great, as was my sandwich. Fresh ingredients. Worth going.
Pretty venue on the 4th floor which opens to a wonderful rooftop area for dining/drinks. Service was attentive and the recommended lamb chops were cooked to perfection, tender and flavorful. We plan to return for lunch on the rooftop terrace.
Food was great. Loved the outdoor seating air!
We enjoyed our dinner, noise level was high due to bar and live music but it was very upbeat and the food and service was very good
Very modern inside, looked inviting. However, we were left alone for 20 mins without so much as a "Hello" or "Welcome". And then we left. It wasn't very busy at 7:30 which makes me wonder why.
It was good, sadly nothing overly memorable. Staff was good, service good, drinks were good. Meal was good enough to know we didn’t dislike it but ...
The service was absolutely horrible. We waited 1.5 hours for our appetizers and our overall meal was 3 hours, not by choice or by leisure. Wouldn't not recommend this to anyone.
Carpaccio was excellent. Pretty surprised that escargot was rubbery and tasteless-no flavors, no garlic, no salt. Had beef au pouvre which was good but was amazed that the side was French fries (hint: that’s not a French side). Two of us asked for coffee but the other 4 guests were not offered coffee or dessert. Server was nice but this place should not try to come across as a French restaurant.
Enjoyable experience with attentive and professional service. Food was excellent overall although the desert was just so-so. Noise level in the private dining area was reasonable but the adjacent bar area ensured it wasn’t truly intimate.
It was magical, I was extremely impressed in the details.
The food was good, but nothing outstanding. Overall it is severely overpriced for what you get. Given the price I'd stay away.
My boyfriend and I went here for our Valentines Day dinner and expected a great meal because of the atmosphere and pricing. We were disappointed by not only the food quality but also the quantity. The staff treated us weirdly and made us uncomfortable for the most part. We regret spending our time and money here.
Cavernous and cold atmosphere with food and wine prices that exceeded the quality we received.
Food was great, waiter knew the menu and. Hold explain how fishes were prepared. Ambiance in restaurant and rooftop bar was amazing. We will go back!
The service was not up to par with a restaurant at this caliber. The lamb was exceptional but the Charcuterie board was probably the worst I’ve personally had. It was served with cold Parmesan cheese that we could not even cut through with a knife. We told our server that we were unhappy with it and he did not care at all...overall I was pleased with the lamb but would not recommend this restaurant due to the service.
A limited menu but the lamb chops were done to perfection. The service was attentive without being overbearing. We like to have a pause between courses and we never felt rushed. Overall a very nice experience.
Met friends and brought my six year old. Nice children’s menu but the kitchen is slow slow slow. It took a full hour to get grapes and cheese plate. It is a shame we would eat there more often the food is good.
A very unique restaurant compared to traditional Charleston fare. Several seating options. The high tables are very close to the main bar area so if you want more privacy and less congestion opt for the low tables. Wonderful outdoor seating area. Excellent menu and food presentations
The service was super slow, the view was beautiful and we will go back one day.
As someone with food sensitivities, Chef Lauren went to great lengths to ensure I would have a delicious and memorable meal even honoring the Restaurant Week specials. My specially prepared 3 courses were outstanding. I enjoyed the tomato and burrata sans olive oil, a perfect prepared red snapper with chard instead of Brussels sprouts and a deconstructed gluten free apple galette recipe. Our server, AJ, was charming and attentive. My husband and I will return knowing my needs can be accommodated with flair!
The meal was very good. Dessert was not fresh and tasted stale. The service was terrible, and when we asked for the manager, he apologized explaining the staff was filling in for the previous wait-staff (that was a lot of staff he had filling in....).
Although noisy, the decor was elegant and the ambiance was nice.
There was a fire pit overlooking downtown which was very nice.
Great deal for restraunt week
Regular menu looked good, albeit a little pricey
We go as a group every restaurant week to try new restaurants in the area. Service was good but not great, but I do give him credit for his patience w our large group though. Food was not great. With it being restaurant week they have their menu picked and somewhat prepped; for our group of 7 it took 3 hrs for dinner. Not very good especially since the place was completely empty when we got there. One person didn't get their app right away while everyone else did (think they forgot one) and another got the absolutely wrong thing. I had the smoked mussels and was not impressed, they were hard to open and way too much smoke flavor. Ginger honey chicken was good but not great, not a lot of veggies with it at all. I will say that several ladies who had the Lobster crab bisque and the Pork Chop really did like there's. Maybe I just picked the wrong food? Overall not sure we will return for another visit.
This is Restaurant Week in Charleston and we are all trying restaurants new to us. The food was very good but the kitchen must have been overwhelmed for there were extremely long waits between courses and the dessert we ordered at the beginning of the meal was no longer available (two hours later).
Seth was an excellent waiter ,the food was delicious and artfully presented.The atmosphere didn't quite enchant
The art and lighting create a gorgeous, but low key atmosphere. All of the staff that I interacted with were friendly and easygoing. It wasn't too busy at 545, but the restaurant is a little bit noisy, because it is a large open space. The food was beyond expectation. The ginger spiced rum sorbet was delicious! I'm definitely going back, and bringing friends.
Eleve never ceases to amaze me. The ambiance is incredible and the service was great. A must for anyone looking for a nice experience in Charleston.
The food was good but it took an hour and a half to get it, which was surprising because it was not very busy. Disappointed with that and wouldn't recommended to a friend.
Service was very poor. We felt racially discriminated against since it was a party pf 13 blacks and there was a table of 5 whites who got more attention than us. I had to get up to get our water and the food took long. There was no communication on when our food was coming unless we asked. After i ordered my food, the server took the menu out of my hands after i finished ordering without asking if i was done. the manager claimed that sine we were late for our reservations (which i called 5 times ahead to notify) that we really shouldn't complain. They offered us 20% and free champagne but i dont think this was fair enough. Plus the food was not all the way cooked and the server wanted my party guest to pay for her food even though she returned it to the kitchen without taking a bite and he refused to take her payment when she offered to pay for her soup which is the only thing she ate. I am still waiting to be compensated, it was my birthday and i was very embarrassed and emotional because of how i and my guests were treated.
We went during restaurant week and got a wonderful 3-course meal. The service was attentive and friendly if not particularly well trained. We had theater tickets so we went early and there were only a few other tables occupied. The manager came to our table and was very pleasant. I like when they do that. When you are in a restaurant and the manager comes over Please tell them of anything that is wrong or could be better. That is what they want - they are not simply looking for you to compliment them or their restaurant. I did mention that the wine glasses were still on the table (he came over after we completed the main course) even though we had not ordered wine. A very small thing yes but to a restaurant it's the small things that matter.
So overall a nice place, good people and great food. Hard to say about the value as we got the discounted Restaurant Week pricing. We will go back.
We were so excited to experience “Eleve” - When we entered the restaurant on the 4th Floor of The Grand Bohemian Hotel - We were immediately impressed with the decor, lighting, Bar etc.... However, we stood at the Hostess Stand for quite awhile waiting to be helped. What staff was there, were mostly behind the bar area. When we were finally noticed, by a gentleman that appeared to possibly be some sort of management, we asked to be seated in a certain area, he acted as if he would have to have the table cleaned, the whole section was clean and the restaurant was pretty empty. Anyway, he finally sat us at a table we didn’t request. After that, we were greeted by our waiter. He was nice, and asked us about a drink order. We asked to see a drink menu, which he apologized for us being sat without one. We opted for a Grey Goose Cosmopolitan - The wait on the cocktails was extremely long, and the end result was terrible. Very poor quality bartending. Due to the lack of attentiveness and the poor cocktail experience. We opted to make a reservation elsewhere for dinner. When we were finally able to get our waiters attention, we asked for our bill. When we finally received the bill, we waited again, just trying to pay it. I approached a young girl behind the bar and asked if she could run our credit card. She said no. Our waiter would have to do that. Well, we were finally able to leave. Two drinks cost $35.00, and they were so terrible. The manager guy spent his time behind the bar, chatting with a patron of the bar, oblivious to us and another family of three that had entered and were waiting forever to be noticed and seated. For all the beautiful lighting, art work and attentions to esthetic detail, Eleve was a huge disappointment. If the customer service and quality of product matched the look of Eleve, it would definitely be an experience we would be happy to tell everyone about. However, I would never want anyone to experience what we had to.
We went for the New Year's Eve dinner and found the food delicious and well prepared. There were 4 of us, 3 had the veal chop and one had the lamb shank; no complaints at all. Patrick was our server and he was very nice but we found him scarce for example when dessert was served we were not asked if we would like coffee or an aperitif. The ambiance was nice with the art work however the second bar in view of our table was a reminder that this was a hotel restaurant. Our complaint is that we paid for our meal with a gift card valued at $150. Patrick returned with the bill and said it's value was only $100. We could not argue because when I looked at the card there was no denomination on it, I had to ask our son who gave us the card what its worth was, clearly there was a mistake but we were with another couple, not a time for a scene. When we got home I called and spoke to Robin who said he "looked at the card himself" and saw it was valued at $100 and where did we get it. Strange question I think but I happened to know that my son's fiancee and her mother went to the hotel in person to purchase the gift. Robin said he would have to "investigate". Today is January 4th and I know we have had bad weather but I would think this is an important matter. Still no resolution.
Great venue and food and always superb service. We have an extensive array of very good restaurants in Charleston and we return to Eleve over and over.
Christmas Eve dinner with my husband and our friend. The hotel and restaurant are so charming and eclectic. It was too cold to enjoy the rooftop deck, but this is such a wonderful spot. Food was delicious. Definitely come check them out. View, ambiance and delicious food.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. A definite special place to dine.
Nestled at the top of the Bohemian, this is a bright room adjacent to rooftop seating. We lunched there and it was goooood (but pricey, as one would expect in this hotel). Decent wine menu, too. If it were warmer, outside seating would be a delight.
I cannot get enough of the Burrata!!! The ambiance is a bit flashy but the food is sooooo good!
Really disappointed with the menu. Location and service were excellent. However, I was served frozen fries for a $38 plate of food. Now it makes sense why there were so many times for reservations. This is downtown Charleston with some of the best food in the country and Eleve is essentially serving Ore-Ida fries with a steak dinner. Won’t come again.
Stopped by with some friends and had a wonderful lunch served by a very attentive waitress. Will return again.
