    Worst food we had in Charleston. Everything was bland. For high end food there was no balance to the dishes. Couldn’t eat my scallops bc the squash purée tasted super funky.

    Pretty expensive for the lobster Mac and cheese and 70 dollars for one 16 oz ribeye is too much. Worst part, The valet parked my car next to a tree and I could not get my crippled husband into his side. He also gave me the keys and said. It's right up the street and pointed to my car. My husband was standing next to me with crutches. He had to crutch himself to my car. Not good

    The crab cakes were highly recommended by our server but proved to be over cooked deep fried and unacceptable. The Brussel sprouts were far too oily. The wine list was average. The corn bread was delicious and the restaurant offered additional servings. The tuna tartare was yeasty with a nice presentation. The scallops were fresh and cooked perfectly with a good lemon flavor. The restaurant apologized for the food and quickly removed the unacceptable food from the bill. It may be an off night.

    The restaurant was beautiful, and the service was excellent. The food had very good flavor, but none of it arrived hot. We each had a cup of she crab soup, and it was tepid at best. If everything had been hot on arrival, the entire experience would have gotten 5 stars from us!

    Camille at the front desk is very welcoming and charming. Erich (GM) is always checking to see all is going well - he is superb. JD's service was perfect and the cuisine was yummy - tuna tartare followed by the halibut - goo d wine selection. And it is inside the beautiful Hotel Bennett. Ambiance is low key.

    The service was perfect. The food overall was very good. The only criticism we had that the corn soufflé was hard as a rock but the brisket was the best we ever had per our table. Lamb was scrumptious… the veal was cooked to perfection. I loved the Burrata! We will be back!

    Local diners in Charleston and fine restaurants. First time dining experience with you. Table was accommodative to request however next to seat immediately to right of partner. Asked to be seated close to each other but out of way which was partially met. Service was dry. Food was very mediocre at best When compared with other downtown restaurants quality of food would rate 1 on scale of 5. Very disappointing experience and unfortunately have no desire to visit again Experience Sis not create any memorable experience other than extreme disappointment on all levels include quality and taste of food and actually brace slightly sick in evening. Would advise to others to seek alternative dining at many other downtown restaurants Did not do any special for occasion on a side note which was the first restaurant in area not to do or acknowledge anything Thank you

    Went here for my Birthday dinner during a trip to Charleston. I was a bit unsure with so many options in Charleston. I’m a bit biased against restaurants in hotels. But it was recommended by a friend so we gave it a chance. My wife and I were very pleased and impressed. Overall, it was a great dinner. The restaurant itself is very nice set in the 5 star Hotel Bennett with really nice ambiance and overlooking Marion park. Service was perfect. Our server was knowledgeable, made excellent recommendations, and really understood the menu. She paid just the right amount of attention but never rushed us. The food is pretty traditional, not nouveau cuisine, but done right. Our food was delicious. We crushed the old school Foie gras and oysters Rockefeller appetizers. For entrees we had a risotto with black truffle and lobster Mac and cheese. The risotto was out of this world and there was so much lobster meat it the Mac and cheese, both were really decadent. We were stuffed and had to pass on dessert but it sounded good. Cocktails were well made as you would expect in a 5 star joint and strong (which seems to be a rule in Charleston!). My only negative was we could hear the lounge act from the adjoining lounge for part of the meal. The musician was fine enough but the music (acoustic versions of rock songs) did not meld with the ambiance very well. Convenient valet parking too. They kept my car right out front so it was a simple departure. Don’t complain about the price. This is a fine dining establishment and worth it. Leave your kids at home and dress up.

    Lovely ambience, food very good, especially the fried chicken and all the deserts. The service needs some work. I purchased the most expensive bottle of champagne (special treat) I was not offered a taste and my glass was filled (to the top) first, causing me concern that my other 4 guests would be short. Very odd. I had asked for the rest of my chicken so I could take it home and this was not done, it was not inexpensive and was tasty, sad. Table was left a long time before clearing. All in all a good experience but need to work on service, the people were lovely, just need some training.

    Celebrating my wife’s birthday and discovered this gem inside Hotel Bennet. We had an early seating bc we were going to a concert so there was no one else in the restaurant. Service was great and food was excellent. My Lamb TBone was a little over cooked (o ordered medium) but overall things were great and I will make it one of my places to dine in Charleston.

    Last night was our anniversary and dinner was quite nice. It was eerily quiet- we were the only diners for much of the meal. Still, a lovely space and good ambiance. Danielle, our waitperson, was very attentive without being intrusive- well done. We had the she crab soup and tuna tartare for appetizers, both very nicely done. Dinner was scallops and the shrimp and grits. Presentation was good, flavors were a bit unusual but quite tasty. On the shrimp/grits: the grits would benefit from a little more substance, and the lamb sausage was an excellent alternative to the more common Tasso ham. Dessert was on the house- thank you- and the chocolate torte was worth the calories. All in all, a very nice evening.

    We came there for breakfast. Restaurant and food were great but there were a few things that I found completely out of place. One of our waitresses for example. There were two that served us. She was a young white girl, but the way she was dressed was a bit awful. She looked dirty and little bit homeless. Her black tights had holes in them and her black outfit was stained and dirty. This was a nice restaurant with white tables cloths in an upscale hotel and this girl came to work looking like she was homeless. The girls who served water and poured coffee spend a lot more time outside talking, then working. They were also wearing extremely heavy evening makeup, that looked completely out of place at 8:00am in the morning. Food was great though.

    Camille at the front desk was very welcoming and JD's service and recommendations were excellent. GM Erich was the perfect host and ensured all went well - he is special. Andrew Mgr stopped by to introduce himself - nice touch. The tuna tartare was extra yummy and the warm corn bread - yikes it was sooooo goood. The snapper entree was delicious. Ambiance was very quiet - that time of the year and the wine list is good. Inside the beautiful Hotel Bennett - try it 😊 - you will go back.
