My wife and I came to the restaurant to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. It was our first time there. It won’t be our last. We were given a great table and a complimentary glass of champagne. The service was from the moment we checked in, first class.
The meal was served as ordered and was delicious.
Everything made for a special night.
Thank you

Grill 225 is absolutely one of our most favorite restaurants in Charleston. The food is always amazing and the service is fabulous as well. Our waiter, Nick Latto, was exceptional. We can’t wait to return & hope we are lucky enough to have the same waiter.

For a fine dining restaurant, I shouldn’t have to talk louder (yell) then the bar crowd and the band to converse with my dinner guest. Friendly staff. Great wine recommendation.

John and Angel were both excellent! The service was timely and attentive but non-invasive. Food was cooked perfectly and the banana bread pudding was sublime.

I have eaten in some of the finest restaurants in the USA and Grill 225 still remains my favorite. From the initial greeting by the Valet, to the Maitre D, to the Waiter and support staff, to the Chef - all paying attention to our needs and wants. Did I mention the melt-in-your-mouth steak? Why they bring you a steak knife is still a mystery to me. You can cut your filet with a fork. When our Waiter, Jeff learned we were celebrating 2 birthdays plus Valentine's Day, he brought us 2 complimentary desserts of our choosing. They really do make you feel special.

Great food & service but the noise level from the bar was horrendous. Put in some baffles to reduce the noise level in the restaurant. We had to speak loudly to hear each other. I would recommend Grill 225 to friends but caution them about the noise.

Great steak and seafood restaurant located in the heart of Charleston. The dining room is large and intimately lit. The prime rib and lamb chops are great choices. The wine list is extensive and offers great selections.

Best place in Charleston to have a perfect dining experience. When we have a night out to celebrate this is our go to restaurant and my favorite steak in town since we are local. We received amazing service from our waiter JB last Saturday night and are looking forward to returning soon!

Hard to write a good review when the place is CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS. Why is Open Table f’ng up by taking reservations for a closed location? Open Table also screwed up our reservation in Park City Utah last week. Not very happy with Open Table.

We have eaten here many times and love it. I must say this past visit was not up to our standards. Not sure if it was because of the holiday season but I had dinner here three weeks before and it was five star all the way. This last visit food was not bandar as good as the previous visit. We will be back but I will expect a better outcome.

Grill 225 has excellent wait staff and the food is superbly prepared. Enjoyed the large Christmas tree that greats you as you enter the restaurant and the ginger bread houses were a big hit. Will return at holiday season on a regular basis.

As we experienced last year during the holidays, we had a wonderful experience. Food was excellent (we both ordered a steak with sides), service was impeccable, knowledgeable and non-intrusive, wine list was extensive and the décor was outstanding. A wonderful experience; we will be back. thanks

This visit was disappointing.
The onion soup was superb.
The shrimp cocktail was superb.
The shrimp croissant was oversaturated with mayo.
The french fries were not piping hot.
The server was lackadaisical.
Expected much more for the money we spent for this special lunch.
Perhaps dinner would be better for steaks.

This may be a minor thing. We were seated in a very high traffic area. I asked the hostess to be reseated and for an empty table in a corner. She immediately responded with "That table is reserved and they are in the building. I'm seating them next." No one ever sat at that table, or any of the adjacent ones.
