    High Cotton was the best meal we had in Charleston. The restaurant was extremely busy, which meant our table wasn't ready when we arrived. But that didn't matter we found a seat at the bar got a glass of champagne and a martini and listening to some amazing jazz. We were actually happy our table wasn't ready yet. Once we were seated we ordered a bottle of wine and the sommelier was incredible. Then we had oysters, which I must mention were the only perfectly shucked oysters we had the entire 5 days we were in Charleston. Then we had some crab, salad and ahi tuna for the main. Lots of food and an amazing menu. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is going to Charleston.

    Our anniversary dinner experience could not have been more pleasurable. Our table was perfect, the food was exceptional and the service couldn't have been more attentive and professional. Our server, Lisa, was a gem. This was our first visit to High Cotton and it is now at the top of our list of favorite Charleston restaurants.

    Top notch from tip to tail. Smoked trout is excellent. Steak to perfection. White chocolate peach creme is just as awesome as the staff.

    The server really saved the day. Ron is the best! However, very disappointed with hostesses. We arrived on time for our reservations and were informed our table was still occupied and they had no eta for when it would be ready and asked us to sit at the bar where we had a bartender who was annoyed with a simple question of what do you think is better the bellini or sangria. In addition, after 30+ minutes of waiting the hostess came by and said “did you close out your tab because your table is ready” as if we were being an inconvenience. I’d recommend some additional training to make sure Customer Service starts at the front of the house.

    We had a fabulous brunch. The service and food was impeccable. My only complaint is they skimped a little on the hollandaise sauce for the crabcake benedict, however, the eggs were perfectly cooked, the crabcakes were delicious as well as the shrimp and grits. Would definitely go there again. It was a delightful start to our day!

    Food not that interesting. I had some grilled swordfish over beans. Can’t even remember it. Yucky. Husband had Lane Snapper fish dish and it wasn’t great, either. Buttermilk fried oyster appetizer was good but so filling. All in all, same old stuff on menu. I would eat at SLightly North of Broad, Puggans Porch, or Peninsula Grill before this place. Lovely atmosphere and bright cheerful room. But food lacked heart.
