    The fried green tomatoes appetizer was amazing. Food was good. We wanted to enjoy the weekend night jazz music but couldnt even hear it. We were seated by the bar (the room to the right) where the bartender was really boisterous and in between two loud parties and all the people e at the bar. So it was really loud!! If we had been placed in the room to the left instead of right it would have been more enjoyable.

    Ribeye was over cooked, presentation on food could have been a lot better. We got the fondue and fried green tomato apps. Both tasted good but the fondue was a cup of melted cheese with food around on a plate. Should have had smoked sausage instead they made a replacement bc they were out without mentioning. Ordered steak medium came out medium well-well. Manager was nice to remove from bill and offer to correct. Our server was not good and made for an overall poor experience even if the food was decent. He disappeared for long period and didn’t bring app plates or silverware after asking. For the price, I would expect better service and food.

    The food and service were good as usual, but the dripping ceilings were pretty annoying. We voluntarily took the table with the drip and simply left that chair empty, but it was hitting the table and splashing into our food.

    We had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch at Eli’s!! We appreciated Eli’s moving our reservation time from 11:30 to 11:00 so we could get home to receive our son’s call for Mother’s Day. It made my Mother’s Day perfect. The food and service were great and we loved sitting outside!

    Service was good. Food was average and very overpriced. Fried oysters (only way to get them as an addition to my meal) were so battered, could barely taste the oyster. Bathroom was full of water with drenched black padding to “try” and keep patrons out of the water. Dining area was wonderfully decorated but….water-stained ceiling was a detractor. Better places to $300.

    We ended the trip with brunch at Eli's Table. The grits were some of the best I have ever eaten. The ham and brie croissant was phenomenal! Our server was attentive, and the restaurant is charming. It was such a great way to end our girls weekend.

    We have been coming here for years but unfortunately it is not the same. The food was awful, some of the staff have no idea what they are doing, it was loud with awful electric keyboard music blaring. I don’t know what they are thinking but we will not return. Sad really.

    Very loud and boorish bar staff and head waiters; shouted at each other and acted like they were at a frat party. Waitress was untrained and constantly asked to take our plates away. Food was mediocre and side dish of vegetables was sized at less than a half portion. Bathroom was filthy. Menu is overpriced and outdoor space is poorly maintained slab of concrete. Dozens of better restaurants in Charleston

    Food was okay, but used too much oil. Vegetable risotto contained very little vegetables. Wait staff was not professional. Silverware was not provided until after food arrived. We waited to see if napkins would be provided, but they never were. Hostess was wearing leather (very) short pants. Disappointing and did not live up to reviews. Will not go back.

    Shrimp were overdone and tough. Scallops were NOT done on one side and jiggly. Gouda grits sorely underseasoned and could not taste Gouda at all. Mashed potatoes cold when they came out. No bread in a place that serves steak is odd!

    I did a food tour years ago and Eli’s table was our favorite stop. When I returned for dinner I wasn’t very impressed. Outside patio in back was under construction. Hostess was great and sat us near the window in the smaller room. Our server was pleasant but service was extremely slow and we were not checked on. My husband and I both ordered the special which was a fish dish. The food was good but not great. When we got the bill We were shocked by how expensive our dish cost. I ordered the same fish a week prior at 82 queen, it was much tastier and not as pricy as Eli’s table. We shared an ordered of beignets for dessert and it was plenty for 2 to share and they were delicious. One additional side note. Getting through the tables in this small room to use the restroom was challenging. Some tables are very close together and when people are seated at these tables, it’s challenging to get around. I may give this restaurant one more try for brunch.

    We arrived 15min early for our reservation. I noted on line it was our Anniversary and please no table in the bar area. Upon our arrival the hostess greeted us, and tried to seat us in the bar area. I explained we were early and we could wait for seating as requested. She said I requested nothing, left and then apologized and seated us in a room with many open two tops. She said I reserved for 4 people 🧐, A Happy Anniversary would have been nice. I assume we got a new waitress because people that came well after us were already served. We had to ask for water many times, finally it came in a juice size glass and no lemon. Was not told the Specials, I had to ask. My husbands lamb was served raw. He asked for medium and the ck said med rare. She took it and returned the same rack only this time over cooked. We have eaten at numerous restaurants in Charleston and unfortunately this one was a disappointment .

    Too many good places in Charleston to waste time here. We could not get seated because the hostess continued to take private calls on the sidewalk. Then our waitress was never around - she apologized - she had a relative drop in and surprise her during our meal. The table next to us tried to use the restroom and decided after 30 minutes that it must be locked - the staff did not unlock it. Lucky I guess that we ordered when we did - before we left they ran out of orange juice and fries - at brunch. Very disappointing- too many other great places with superb service in Charleston- I would not recommend.
