    The The bartender was excellent and made us inventive delicious drinks. The service was good and unobtrusive . The noise level was perfect we could hear our own conversations and nobody else’s. The food was delicious. One chicken dish was slightly under done, we let management know just as an FYI and they were kind enough to remove it from our check. Raymond the waiter was a hoot! I highly recommend

    This was our first time having dinner at Eli’s. We’ve had brunch here a few times (which is great!). Brought friends from Hilton Head. The food was excellent! Raymond, our waiter, was awesome! The back patio is beautiful. Highly recommend.

    What a delightful meal celebrating my husbands birthday in the lovely courtyard. Food was delicious . We had fried green tomatoes , scallops with risotto , Brussel sprouts side & the swordfish special. Our wonderful server, Anna couldn’t have been nicer and she was so attentive. She even brought us some complimentary beignets to celebrate his birthday. It was a very special evening. Thank you ! She made it extra fun Will 💯 recommend friends & family visit too

    Kitchen was slow bringing out apps for entire table (only 2 people got theirs then waited 15 min for the other). Waitress was nice but never offered to pour the bottle of wine once it was placed on the table.

    Dead flies in the window, with lots of them flying around. They were nice and moved us, but blamed the bug guy for not getting rid of them. Food was good, but nothing special. Not worth the price with so many other options.

    Our waiter was outstanding. He kept a close eye on us but not hovering. Loved the smoked gouda fondue. I ordered the vegetable risotto and added scallops which was an additional $14 for 3 scallops about the size of a quarter. That was disappointing, but the dish was quite good. My husband ordered the filet with green beans and mashed potatoes and added the scallops. The mashed potatoes were perfection. We were glad we tried Eli's Table.

    Our server was very good and the mussels for our appetizer were very good. The duck and waffles were not good. We had duck and waffles at Eli's Table several years ago and the meal was excellent. So good in fact, that is the reason we returned. The prior chef must not be at the restaurant anymore. They need to take the duck and waffles off the menu.

    Eli’s Table is a must if you come to Charleston. Their service is fantastic and the food is fabulous. I had a chef’s special of mahi-mahi with red rice. What a tasty combination! Whether you come for breakfast, lunch or dinner…GET THE BEGINETS! You will not be disappointed. We had dinner on Friday night and breakfast on Sunday. I had the crab and eggs, which are two crab cakes with poached eggs. If you don’t like poached eggs, they can make your eggs any way you like. 10 out of 10. Highly recommend.

    Eli's Table is a most welcoming restaurant. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and determined to make us comfortable. My shrimp & grits was delicious. Tasty sauce and exceptionally well-grilled shrimp. Lots of grits, which I enjoy. Our server was eager to please in a nice way. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinners, as did our out-of-town friends.

    Have been to Eli's Table several times over the years. This was not the best meal I've experienced. Risotto that came with the scallops was rather dry and seemed to have been prepared earlier in the day. Chef's special (salmon) was good and portion was generous.
