Disappointing. Arrived 15 minutes early and was seated no problem which was nice. The menu was appealing although our placemats were dirty which took away our appetite. We ordered our food soon after being seated. It took 45 minutes to soup, salad and a sandwich.

We went here while visiting on a girlfriends trip. The staff was wonderful and accommodating. We enjoyed it so much, we returned the following night and added tiramisu for desert. It was outstanding. After a day of summer sightseeing we were tired and just wanted a glass of wine and light dinner. We ordered the famous kale salad and added protein... staff was most accommodating and friendly

Food good though average fair. Lunch menu, but portions versus pricing poor. Understand high tourist location, but inadequate portion sizes even for lunch. This made pricing high for meal received. I am local and know many of Charleston restaurants. Eli's though recommended for people visiting did not meet expectations. Not one we will visit again and even though might recommend with conditions, have many places to recommend above it.

The food was amazing; my girlfriend got the fried green tomatoes, while I got the shrimp and pancakes. Our server, although I can’t remember his name, was helpful in guiding us through the menu, as we made a decision on each dish, along with the cocktails we ordered. Their team made it a joy to be there, as it happened to be her Birthday, by surprising us with champagne & a dessert cake, on the house, and just being so cheerful and patient with us. We’ll definitely be back for more.

Not impressed, the food was not worth the high cost and there were flies flying everywhere outside at our table. We had to cover water drinks with napkins. For the price of the food, I excepted higher quality vibes.

A true hidden gem in Charleston. Walking distance from the market area, great service with incredible presentation. Delicious entrees, vibrant bar and designed where you can present in nice shorts or coat and tie. I had the shrimp and grits, which was awesome while my colleague had scallops. Both were perfect. Will definitely be returning to when in Charleston.

Not my best experience here. Food came out cold and was likely because the server left it or forgot about it. All other tables received food before us. Even those that arrived way after us. And she was very forgetful. This place is usually very good so maybe just a bad experience. That said, I’ll rethink going back.

Absolutely delicious breakfast in historic downtown Charleston. They accept reservations- a real plus! Interior is simple, staff very attentive, and the food.....my husband claims his was the best breakfast he’s ever eaten. Fried oyster eggs Benedict with Tasso gravy. Excellent coffee and iced tea. Sweet potato pancakes are amazing too. We will definitely be back soon.

Seated us nearest the kitchen before the restaurant filled for the dinner hour. Menu limited. Salad portions small, like the appetizer. Graciously split what sounded like a large meal into two small plates. Left unsatisfied.

The people working here are very nice, but the service was slow at times & the food was only pretty good. We had breakfast, and my bacon was at room temperature. It had a good flavor, but I like my bacon hot, or at least warm. My eggs were fine. My dining partner got the crab cakes, which had too much bread in them for our tastes. We would not dine here again. Instead, I’d try Toast, which is just down from Eli’s. There was a crowd waiting to get in when we passed, and the menu looked good.

The restaurant was moderately busy. We were seated quickly, but told our server was "new" and we were his first table. He was "shadowed" by another server who later apologized as we sat waiting to be asked about either coffee or desert for over 10-15 minutes after we had completed the rather small entrees. Noting my irritation we received an even more irritating apology. The prices were top of the market ($81.03 for two small entries plus club soda). The options for appetizers were uninteresting and we never saw or heard about a desert menu. I would not return.
