    Four of us had a business lunch and ordered 2 Turkey BLT, Burger and a pear salad with chicken. We were talking and started eating, when the one who ordered the salad had bugs, yes bugs all over her salad. Now they did apologize and did not charge us for the meal, but none of us took another bite and lost our appetite. I have been here plenty of times, but this was a first. I would just use caution in what you are ordering.

    Food was very good. Too few choices on breakfast menu. Out of decaf coffee. Toast really should have been included with omelets, not one of the choices for extras.

    Service was slow. Food was ok, above average. Outdoor seating was not was pictured. Instead of the picturesque rooftop seating in the pictures (appetizers & beverage service only), we were seated on the side of the building at a table that looked like old, dirty patio furniture. For how beautiful the hotel & indoor restaurant decor, the outdoor dining seating was a big disappointment.

    This is at top of grand bohemian hotel. two elevators one for walk ups and one from hotel lobby. Room is very trendy lots of hard surfaces so when crowded it is loud. Out door patio is nice and looks over city from four stories up so view is of rooftop and Ac units but pleasant to sit. The menu is a few items done well. The charcuterie platter is very good for two , then add a big salad and that is plenty. I asked for adding salmon filet done med-rare and it was perfect. Lots of special drinks and pricey wine list - common to Charleston these days. A group was in the private event dining area and it was very nicely done. Recommend for a drink and the view. Food comes up from first floor kitchen

    The location is much better than it’s food. Underwhelming would be the best way to describe the food. Location and ambiance way outweighed the food. Avoid the red velvet waffles

    Overall service was great. Aubrey is a shining gem here. Host wasn’t able to find menus for us which I thought was odd based on the number of patrons. But once Aubrey showed up the evening was great. Ravioli was surprisingly outstanding. Inside tables have an odd layout but I think their main focus is on outside rooftop dining.

    We were told that you are understaffed and for that reason you couldn’t have many tables available to reserve.. there was only 1 waitress. She did fine and was very nice. But it would’ve been nice if there were more people in the restaurant and not only us. After all it should have a bar vibe/scene. Other places seem to pay better and are not understaffed.

    When we arrived the workers as well as customers were giving cery judgmental looks. The drinks were $15 and they were not even good, i had to send 1 back after a sip and the server seemed like she didn’t want to take it back she just wanted me to pick another until i finally said it wasn’t good and i didn’t want another.. The other customers got the cute chairs and tables on the top patio while we got 2 loud metal tables on the side viewing old buildings rooftop. We ordered a nutella lava cake and before we could say anything our server asked if we were ready for the check, which we proceeded with yes because it seemed like we weren’t really the crowd to normally come in..

    The ambiance and set up of the rooftop is very cool. It was pretty windy when we went, which made our food get cold pretty quickly, so we wish we would have ate inside. The entrees were pretty expensive for the quality of food, but they were still pretty good.

    My friend and I ate outside on the rooftop for lunch and it was a very pleasant day to enjoy outside. one reason I 3 stars to the ambiance was that although nice to be outside, the rooftop area where you can dine does not offer any great views. all you see are boring flat rooftops with air conditioners. No greenery to enhance the ambiance...you just sit at a high-top table along a railing so it wouldn't be my first choice for outdoor dining if ambiance was top priority. We had the Caesar salad and grilled chicken breast and the food was outstanding. best grilled chicken I've had anywhere and the dressing was so tasty. the use gem lettuce which I wasn't familiar with but they are beautiful green and crisp lettuce leaves served whole which made for a beautiful presentation. highly recommend this salad.

    I had looked so forward to dining at Eleve'. I had toured the gallery and loved the vibe of the lobby and public areas. Once seated at our table on the rooftop, we waited for at least 30 minutes for a waitperson to come to take our order. When our appetizer order (calamari) finally was served, we still had not gotten our bottle of wine. The calamari was soggy and lukewarm. While we were still waiting for our wine and to place our order for our entrees, two different waitpersons came to our table to take our plates and glasses away. We decided to leave after that, still having not received our wine.

    Expectations were probably too high and we wished we ate inside. Obviously a shortage of staff plagues this restaurant like others but more importantly management allows things like something white laying on the floor the whole time (outside rooftop), tables and chairs would be found at the too good to toss at the city dump, etc. no outside ambiance. Needs a redo. Inside looked much better. Food was okay but took so long to get that our disappointment reigned. The two tables next to us vocally complained, we did not. This added to the bad vibe. One left after waiting too long for the bottle of wine they ordered before we were done. The beautiful evening removed some of the sting of dissatisfaction. I would try inside but have eaten at too many other nicer Charleston establishments to risk a disappointment.
