Enjoyed a variety of cocktails upstairs before dinner. Dined off of the Valentine's menu. Excellent all around but the pork belly, short rib, and hummingbird cake were the stars. Cake is worth coming for by itself. Luckily, we were told it is on the regular menu as well. Will be back.

We had a terrific meal. Started with a drink upstairs, lovely setting and warm enough to sit outside watching the action on King St. Dinner downstairs. The room is beautiful and elegant. Started with the hush puppies which are amazing. We had the pork tenderloin and farmers plate. Both were excellent. We also had the Brussels sprouts and the peas and andouille sides. Both were delicious. We had to try the tomato pie and donuts. We still cannot believe we were eating green tomatoes in a pie. A must try. Parcel 32 is a great addition to the Charleston food scene.

✨ Parcel 32 is simply AMAZING!

The moment you walk in the door you are greeted with a smile. The atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated and the service is exceptional 💕

Our waitress Amanda made our entire experience at Parcel 32 absolutely perfect. She answered all of our questions including drink and food options and even spoke to us about the history of the restaurant’s name.

The food is to die for (and I may or may not be a bit of a Charleston food snob)!

We had the hush puppies - which might I add 👉 are a MUST HAVE.
My husband had the bass & I had the salmon which were both pure perfection.

As for the dessert - we shared the tomato pie. Let me tell you 👉 it was one of the best desserts we have ever had.

And did I mention the drinks? - They are just as equally amazing.

This Charleston restaurant is on the top of our list. You MUST go check them out!

You won’t regret it. 😘

Came to Parcel 32 to celebrate a special occasion, and it did not disappoint. We started with the Brussels sprouts and daily crudo special to share... these are a must try! The scallops and short rib were incredible, as was the warm green tomato pie we got for dessert. Great wine list and delicious cocktails. We'll be back again soon!

We had a lovely server who was mostly attentive. When our food was delivered ( by someone other than our main server) we had no silverware for several minutes, as a result our meal was not hot. Also, items listed on the menu was not included in our entree.. apple butter.I had to ask for it. I thought the food presentation was a bit bland. Eggs , biscuit and bacon just placed in a bowl. Not appealing at all! The final bill reflected a complimentary discount due to the above issues.

Everything was under-seasoned and underwhelming. The flavor combinations of entrees were all over the place too. The pickles are good and the deserts were amazing but all told, it's way overpriced and really not that great. Very nice dining room though and attentive staff.

We had a great experience. The food was so delicious. Portion sizes were very good too! A special mention for the three courses menu being paced exactly right: it was just right. It’s nice to have some time in between courses. So you can savor the food, digest and enjoy the experience. Not a lot of places get that right!

Went for Restaurant Week and was not disappointed! Lots of great dish options, including gluten free. The steak fish and day boat catch were both incredible, as well as the appetizers. Definitely try the green tomato pie! Extensive wine line and impeccable service. The staff was all very friendly and knowledgeable. We'll be returning soon!

Absolutely beautiful place, cool bar, sleek furnishings, attentive and polite service. Too bad the food was not up to par. Beet crudo arrived without dressing, fish dip was underwhelming, the featured swordfish gone by 6:00 PM and the substitute tuna was cold, beige and flavorless. If you happen to go, however, get a Bee's Knees cocktail, the short ribs and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. All of those were worth a return visit.

2nd time for dinner for us. First time awesome. This time very good. It was a " restaurant week" offering. Food was nothing exciting. Service and ambiance were great. I had hush puppy appetizer (dry, not tasty), farmers plate (very good) and a dark beer (excellent). My wife had beet salad (excellent but I don't like beets), swordfish (very good) and a prosecco. We shared an excellent pie dessert and latte (illy coffee excellent). We are hoping for a more exciting meal in March for the Charleston Wine and Food Festival. Overall I strongly recommend but think there is room for some improvement.

The pecan hush puppies with pimento cheese and bacon powder were great. The rest of the meal nothing special. The grainy sourdough bread looked good, but wasn't as far as texture and flavor, and vanilla honey butter didn't make it better. The swordfish entrée was fairly dull and the fish was slightly more cooked than I prefer. I ordered a side of sticky rice and found it disappointing : it wasn't like real sticky rice, it was more like mushy rice with coconut milk and peas. Very forgettable and not really eaten. I skipped dessert.

I ordered the oysters on the rock, the presentation was strange, the rocks looked like edible
hash browns, the hushpuppies were cold and the donut holes were not good~
The nite we (4 of us at my suggestion) went was quiet, however, it took forever for our waiter
to take our drink order~ the food was slightly warm and the presentation of the oysters, hushpuppies
and the donut holes was OFF~

Our evening was complete with amazing cocktails, unique and delicious entrees, and top-notch service. You've got to order the green tomato pie for dessert - you'll be so glad you did!!

Excellent food even for a limited menu on new years eve

I had the sea bass and not being a fish eater i was overwhelmed at
the presentation and tastiness of the dish.My brides scallops were ewaully as well prepared
seasoned on the outside but done perfectly in the middle
Service was impeccable and the noise level was moderate by Charleston standards ie, we could carry on
a conversation and hear each other without straining

i highly recommend Parcel 32

The venue is lovely, as well as the gregarious hostess! So I'm sad to say it was a pretty poor experience. I sat at the community table so it was nice to chat with other patrons... and keep each other company while we waited - and waited - for everything. And when it came it wasnt great... Dont get the overcooked octopus. The cocktail was fine though. The bill wasn't worth it. And I usually like spending money. Hopefully they can get better help. And octopus.

It was so hard deciding to what to order - everything sounded so tasty and inventive! It's a small-ish menu since it changes depending on what's in season, but even my picky husband found plenty of good options. The cauliflower bisque, brussels sprouts side and diver scallops entree were all outstanding. The entree was five large scallops plus beautiful, colorful accompaniments for $32. I was stuffed, but still made room for mango coconut ice cream :). This was our best dining experience in Charleston by far.
