I wanted to like this place but unfortunately it was only just okay. The food was okay, the service was less than to be desired, and the tables were so close that I think I rubbed my backside on someone else’s husband more than once to get up. Maybe a bad night as they were running out of food at 8:30, but with all the great food in Charleston, I have no desire to return.

So delicious. Inventive dishes coupled with old classics.

We had heirloom tomato peach tuna carpaccio, rabbit stew, salmon rillette, and French onion soup croquette.

Service was outstanding.

Music could have been better. Lots of top pop hits that took away from atmosphere.

Really cool spot, fun vibe inside. Small, reservations recommended. Worthy a try, go for Wednesday burger night (these are super gourmet burgers!) but as a whole i thought my meal was very tasty but nothing to write home about. Place is definitely a good addition to way upper king.

We visited here from Atlanta, taking a long weekend in Charleston to celebrate my wife’s birthday. They greeted us with champagne to wish her a happy day. Great start!
Classic French bistro. The food exceeded our expectations, and the service was outstanding. Nate took great care of us and made great recommendations.
We started with the Escargot and Chanterelle Tart. Very classic herb and garlic butter with the escargot, executed perfectly. The Chanterelle Tart was delicious too, with our only criticism in wishing there had been a little more puff pastry.
For entrées we ordered the Roasted Chicken and Steak Frites. The macaroni farci that came with the chicken was so unique and delicious. The herbs and morels rounded out the dish. Very balanced. The steak frites was very classic French bistro with an au poivre sauce and buttery frites. Ask for the béarnaise aioli!
A great experience overall. We will absolutely be back on our next trip to Charleston!

We shared the French onion croquet- (very good) and the mushroom tart- (excellent),especially the goat cheese!
For main dishes we ordered the steak frittes (excellent), the chicken dish (incredible), the mussels (good), a side order of fries(incredible) and the wedge salad (good). For dessert- chocolate mousse and the caramel custard (both excellent). Our waitress was very helpful with suggestions and did a great job.

We had a fantastic dinner at Maison this week. We ate outside, under the Eiffel Tower (painting). Both the appetizers and main courses were delicious. We enjoyed the chanterelle tarte and fois gras appetizer - both were excellent. I had the fish amandine, which was perfectly cooked and accompanied by delicious haricot vert beans. We also ordered the scallops and the steak frites which were terrific.
Our waiter was friendly and informative. All around, it was a super enjoyable meal. We look forward to going back next time we're in Charleston.

Service and ambience were very good. Mixed results on food, however. My daughter's chicken was outstanding, but my wife and I had steak which was very tough and too salty. Just seemed like a poor cut of meat folded and rolled to look like a filet, which it was not. Would go back but will probably avoid the steak.
