Starred with nitrogen martinis. Cool experience. Bread variety was great, all delicious. Escargot, creamed corn and tomatoes with havarti stole the show. Lobster was delicious and perfectly cooked and melted in your mouth! Great wine selection. Also great dessert options as well. We enjoyed the butterscotch pecan pie.

The flounder lacked freshness.
The lobster scampi had a small piece of shell in it and also did have much flavor.
Anyone who orders the lobster should know it’s the whole thing with the lobster shell, legs and body. FYI

Exceptional waitstaff, friendly, explanatory and swift. High quality experience all the way around, from seating to serving to interactions with staff. (Jordan and Jeff) The fillet was well prepared with perfection. The side dishes are easily shareable and so good. Have the mashed sweet potatoes, and the creamed spinach! Next time I will try the Nitrotini. High dollar but worth every penny.

Grill 225 is one of my go to places to celebrate a special occasion or take out of town guests. I have never been disappointed with the food or service. Charleston’s best steakhouse by far.

It was my husbands birthday and the food and service was great! However, it was a little insane that we had to go get a mask to wear inside the building but took it off as soon as we sat down. We were not allowed in the building unless we had a mask- which the CDC relaxed guidelines so grill 225 should as well.

Excellent service and drinks. Food we very good but not the best I've had. I usually find that most places use to much salt on steaks but the New York stripwas a little bland for me. Loved the rooftop

Where do I begin? This was, hands-down, the best meal we had in Charleston. Our server, the food, the atmosphere and the nitro-tinis were all beyond any possible expectations .Eat here, you will be happy you did. Kudos to the entire staff!

Entertained guests from out of town. Had small filet that isn't that small and roasted tomatoes with creamed spinach and Havarti cheese. Escargot as an appetizer. All was excellently prepared and served. Sat in a booth that kept any noise at bay. Very comfortable to have a conversation. Highly recommended.

Excellent filet, escargot, and lobster. Everything was cooked exceptionally. The service was very good. The only complaint was there was a large dinner party and with the high ceilings it was very loud. But overall it was very nice.

One of three restaurants which we dined during our stay in Charleston,
Fantastic.
Seafood was great even though highly touted as a steak house.
Going back again in the fall of 2021.

The restaurant had a warm ambience with rich detail and a simple elegance. The food was absolutely delicious with a wonderful presentation. We all ordered steak with a side order of asparagus and tomatoes with spinach and Havarti cheese to share. The food was perfectly prepared and presented. The wait staff was very friendly and professional. We would definitely go back.

Dinner for 3, $463 before tip; 2 glasses of wine ridiculously $45. Service was ok, but for that cost, needs significant improvement! Perry's Steakhouse in Houston is a great model for exceptional service. Lobster scampi, creamed spinach and desserts were excellent, ribeye was good but I've had better steak, nitrotini was very good, but looks better. Overall rating and experience good, but WAY too expensive for a casual 'don't-worry-about-the-cost' dinner
