The steaks were over cooked and very salty. The wine list is not accurate! Double check the year first as they advertise a specific year and try to serve you another… at the same price.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our recent dining experience at Grill 225. Our server was very personable and attentive to our needs.
Our martinis were perfectly prepared and our steaks were cooked to order and very tasty. We passed on dessert but we will definitely return to Grill 225 whenever we are in Charleston.

We had reservations at 7:45 and wasn’t sat until 8:20ish, The maître d’ excuse was “I sent a girl out there to get you I guess she decided to tik tok instead.”

The nitro cocktails were visually exciting and delicious. Our table of 5 enjoyed each main course; the shrimp & grits were great. The sides were OK,and desserts excellent. The service was just the right combination of attentive and respectful of table conversations. It was a splurge, but one we would do again!

Grill 225 was fantastic, the food and wine were absolutely amazing! The service was good but waitstaff had room to be a bit more warm & fuzzy. We had an enjoyable evening regardless and thoroughly enjoyed our food, kudos to the kitchen staff, just phenomenal food prep, presentation, and taste!!!

It is by far the best restaurant in Charleston. First of all, the ambiance is far superior to any other restaurant in town. The service is immaculate and the food is wonderful. I feel like I am in a fancy restaurant of times give by. It is hard to find an establishment that has that has that “old school” service with modern tastes. The tuna tower was fantastic as well as the potato chips with blue cheese. The steaks feel like you are in one of those fabulous steak houses in downtown Chicago. The desserts are better than any I had in New York City or Paris.

Server was not attentive at all. They did not have the vintage two wines that we ordered as noted on their menu. Onion soup was tasteless. When we returned it, the server came back and said they tasted it and agreed that it was tasteless and therefore they wouldn’t charge us. This was an insult to the customer as if they they did not believe our claim and had to verify it. Lastly, we had to send my wife’s filet back as she had emphasized that she wanted it well done but it came medium well with pink meat in the center. A steakhouse should be able to deliver the steak temperature that the customer requests correctly the first time.

We have dined at Grilll 225 several times on our visits to Charleston. It is an excellent restaurant for fine dining at its best. Food is always excellent and the service is very professional as expected. My filet on the last visit was so tender I could cut it with a fork.

High end presentation and style, but the food fell short of the hype. The restaurant was half full (at 8:30) on a Friday night and it took over an hour to receive our main meal. There are far to many great places to dine in Charleston to pay this price and settle for less.

Above all the food was absolutely incredible.The service was the best I have ever had. From the Nitrotini’s to the Fried lobster, BLT salad , Prime aged Ribeye cooked to perfection and shrimp and grits everything was top of the line.
People would say a little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
The Prices meet the expertise, the experience and superior quality. I would go again and again!
