Grill 225 was easily the best restaurant we visited while in Charleston. We decided to go because of the $50 voucher we received for staying at the Market Place Pavilion. We were blown away with our experience. The server was both professional and personable, meeting our every need. The food was higher priced, but the portions were very generous as we were able to share one BLT salad and both have enough left overs from our entrees for another meal. My crab cakes were the best I've ever had and my husband's steak was as exceptional as any steakhouse. We'll definitely make a point to go again the next time we are in Charleston!

Great food and service. My wife had the rib eye and I had the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. When we return to Charleston we will return to Grill 225 for sure.

Great as usual. Always impressed with their dry aged steaks. I felt at home especially when it was birthday. The best part of the experience is the service. They have some of the most rare table side service in Charleston. And this is coming from some who dines out every week to try different food.

The resturant is beautiful and the steaks were magnificent, possibly the best I've ever had. We were made to feel as if we were the most important patrons. The staff was impeccable. I would definitely dine here again.

Our steaks were awesome, as were the vegetables. However our friend had a bad cut of tuna that she couldn’t cut. The restaurant offered to get her something else which she refused. Then she wasn’t charged for the meal so everything worked out. Otherwise everything was delicious!

Our visit to Grill 225 was outstanding. We asked for a table and server the maitre 'D would pick for a member of her own family which she did. Nick was just outstanding and helpful. He also took the creamed corn off our bill when it was soupy and returned. The steaks were super and his expectation for doneness was right on. He was willing to steer us away from a couple of menu choices to ones we really liked. Our table was ready on the minute of our reservation. When we arrived, the bar area was full, but later there were seats available. We didn't try their bar specialty of nitrotini. Grill 225 was just great for a special event. The wine list was quite extensive. We'll definitely be back.

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.

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.
