    Saturday evening dining, no fault of the team but we did have to wait 30 minutes for our reservation. We had the Gouda fondue, it was good but a glorified cheese dip vs fondue. We had a filet and ribeye, ribeye was cooked great, filet was slightly overdone. Cheesecake was good. Server was kind and knowledgeable but the price didn’t match up to the overall experience. It was a good meal but I wouldn’t consider it a must do.

    Eli’s Table is one of our go-to Charleston restaurants that we could count on for good food and service. Tonight’s experience was disappointing. My under seasoned chicken Caesar salad was small and warm, with wilted lettuce and lacking dressing. My husband’s shrimp and grits were okay, but warm, not hot. Upon being seated, my husband’s chair was wobbly and unstable. When he asked for another, after some discussion and hesitation by the wait staff, it was replaced with an equally unstable chair. He eventually found one on his own at another table and replaced it himself. Our server was inattentive. All in all, a disappointing experience and unlike our previous visits. Hope this was just an off night for them.

    Our last visit we did brunch, this time we tried dinner. I would stick with brunch. Dinner was not impressive. I had the scallop with risotto. The risotto was good, the scallops were meh. They ran out of she crap soup - we were not a late seating. Instead husband had tomato soup which was nothing out of the ordinary. For drink I had a chocolate martini that tasted pretty watered down - not the best I have had while in town. Service was friendly but could not make up for average food and beverage.

    First of all I have to say the service was amazing. The staff made you feel at home for a Christmas dinner. Everything was good. Had one item that was supposed to be the voted #1 Wh I was the fried green tomatoes. I hate to say it but they were over cooked and no flavor. Other than that one little thing amazing.

    Our first trip to Eli's. Food and service were great. My only knock is that we were seated on the bar/kitchen side which got a bit noisy at times with clanking dishes. I will definitely go back but request to sit on the other side of the restaurant.

    We were a large party of nine, (with reservations) they did not have a table ready for us… our waiter was very accommodating and helpful.. however 3 of us ordered the filet… it was awful… not tender …I’ve never seen a cut of beef like it before. The other entrees were mediocre at best. The soup and salads were ok nothing great..we were very disappointed!… It is hard to compete in Charleston since we do have so many execellent restaurants.. I’m sure tourists will find it acceptable!

    This was our 3rd visit to Eli's Table. We arrived early for our reservation, but were accommodated. Service was slow, and matter of fact. I think she may have had a larger table in the next room. I had the salmon, and it was cooked well, but the rossoto was tepid. The cheesecake dessert had a bland taste, and had minimal garnish on it (1/2 a strawberry, no whip) and a few dribbles of strawberry on the plate. My husband had the shrimp and grits, which is normally his favorite. The gouda grits were flavorful, but too much salt overall, and little andouille flavor. He rated it a 5 out of 10. It was a Friday night, so it was loud, and a little guitar duo were tuning up when we left. Not very memorable, but will try again...

    Had high expectations but horrible meal and experience at restaurant. We ordered appetizer with drinks but app came one hour later. Two ceasar salads at $12 each were ordered but could not eat. So bad!! Complained but apparently no one cared. Soups were good but came to the table luke warm at best. They sent warmer soups back which we enjoyed. Asparagus with duck was disgusting. Could not eat. Our dinner took over two hours but not our choice. Only one of the three of us left there feeling full. Not a good thing for a meal at over $50 per person. Luckily I had snacks at the hotel for the other two of us. Come to Charleston at least every three months. Will never come back to Eli's Table unfortunately.

    Was a party of 6 for my daughter's 26. She wasn't feeling great coming in and asked about bread was told no so quickly ordered 2 appetizers to help her blood sugar. I ended up leaving with the bday girl to no one's fault everyone else enjoyed. I had mentioned I was allergic to broccoli and substituted the sprouts instead. Was so excited when my to go arrived home but couldn't try it as the snapper was ontop of broccoli., Perhaps I'll try another time. Was def not a great night for me.

    We were so looking forward to our reservation for 6 at Eli’s table. We were, however quite disappointed by the service and facility. We had a 5:30 reservations and a plan to leave by 7:00 for a performance. Unfortunately, our entrees just started arrive at 7:00, which made for a stressful evening for us. Our water glasses were empty until we asked for a refill at one point. The bathroom next to the kitchen had something leaking out over much of the floor. The restroom was rather unappealing overall.

    My wife had the Duck & Waffles that she really loved. The portions were generous and the duck was done to perfection. I had the scallops, which was a little scimpy but was quite flavorful as well. The staff was competent and attentive to all of our needs. We enjoyed it and will likely be back.

    We were upset that they sat us outside without asking us. It was Thanksgiving night and cold as windy. No heaters. We had booked weeks in advance. Don’t take more reservations than you can take inside. There were people literally sitting there with hoods up on their jackets. Only thing that saved the night was food was good.

    Staff was friendly and responsive. We were the first table seated, so our orders were handled promptly. My wife and I ordered the Rib Eye which was recommended. It came with fried potatoes and grilled asparagus. Potatoes were greasy and bland, asparagus was soggy and limp. Rib Eye was cooked to proper temperature but very charred. I added scallops for $14 to the meal. They gave me 2 small scallops that were bland and overcooked. My son ordered the Filet which was ok, but garlic mashed were lumpy and bland. My daughter ordered roasted chicken which was dry and bland. I spent $300 for 4 meals with 1 appetizer, 1 salad and 1 desert. All of the meals were very bland and the presentation was severely lacking. I will stick with Halls next time I am in a mood for steak.

    We were there for Thanksgiving. We had an early reservation and was told the reason our food was slow was because it was a holiday. I am sure they have ore people on a Saturday night. My small bowl of she crab soup came out. It was good but not very hot. Waiting for my husband's app I went ahead and ate before my soup got cold. After I was finished my husband's crostini came out. The bread was not toasted at all as crostini should be done. Finally our entrees arrived 1.25 hours after we arrived and my husband's dinner was cold. He sent it back and said if it's going to take another hour I don't want it. The manager came over and apologized and paid for our meal. Didn't even try to replace my husband's cold meal. First and last time we will go there!

    Not the best food. The waiter screwed up the orders. A couple of us ordered scallops but then we were told they were not looking good so we picked steaks instead. Those were all over cooked. We were disappointed because it has such great reviews. There are many better restaurants in the area, we would not go back.
