Had the Monkfish Chop. One of the best fish dishes I’ve ever had in Charleston! And the Milles Feuilles for dessert!

A home run across the board. Bravo!! The food is outstanding and the wine list is great. Lots of interesting wines by the glass. And the madelines for dessert are the shining star to cap off the meal.

First time among us locals. We loved it. French Bistro at it’s best. Sauces galore. Mussels are mouth watering, Chicken was very tender and surrounded by wonderful vegetables. Both my female friends finished their Monk fish.

We enjoyed steak tartare, fau gras, mussles, salmon rillet, and pate, and it was all delicious. Our server was well informed and fun to talk to. We will definitely return soon!

I thought the food was generally overpriced for what it is. Steak tartare didn't include any bread, bread served with Pate was burnt.

Excellent food and service - the monkfish was exceptional as well as the veggie tart and the mussels. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and it’s well worth the Uber from downtown. One of our best meals in Charleston!

Great first outing. Kevin, our waiter? Was appropriately attentive and never intrusive. Our meals were beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Riviera salad was a feast for the eyes and featured the freshest local lettuce. Escargot were plump and garlicky. Steak frites featured perfectly prepared filets and steamed fish canes with “scales “ of thinly sliced zucchini in s delicious tomato broth. There were no leftovers.

Exceptional food, presentation, and waitstaff. Hostess cold and not accommodating. Parking non-existent. Don't know how dining at this price can survive without some provision for patron parking.

I've just returned from the Burgundy Wine Region in France; why not just stay in Charleston and go to Maison. Excellent!

First visit to Maison, and I am sorry I didn't get there sooner! We had a very good experience and look forward to returning. Four of us shared 4 appetizers and all were very good - especially the steak tartare and the vegetable tart. Nice selection of wines at reasonable price points. Highly recommend this spot on upper King St!
