    I took my mother and my family here for my mother's birthday and it was exceptional. Although the ribeye was cooked rare instead of medium rare, it was still one of the best rib eyes I've had. No cooks. Certainly know what they're doing and their wait staff is very accommodating. 10 out of 10, would go again!

    Dinner was delicious. We both enjoyed our salads, mine was the apple; my husband had the Creaser. The fish board was delicious, and we always enjoy the fried green tomatoes. The only disappointment was dessert. We had the apple dish. The pastry was soggy, and apples were not baked long enough, and they were over spiced...almost like the ginger bread seasonings were thrown in the apple dish too.

    My entrée and sides were both cold and salty...extremely salty. Worse dinning experience that I've had in Columbia... I had heard good reviews about the restaurant, but it will be a long while before I give them a chance for redemption.

    Food was great; service was marginal. We were celebrating a birthday and the server barely acknowledged it; that's fine, but then don't ask if/what we are celebrating. It just seemed she was ready to go home. I have had way better service at this restaurant in the past, and the food is always worth it.

    We had a great experience last night. Our server, Jake, was extremely polite, knowledgeable and full of personality. We started with complimentary champagne as it was our 49th anniversary. What a nice touch! Our appetizers, salad and dinners were delicious. Couldn't have asked for a better way to spend our anniversary.

    Our server Jake was not the caliber waiter that Saluda should employ. He had no refinement. He talked too fast, cleared all plates of those finished and stood over me anxiously waiting to take mine. He asked "do you want a box? " I said " no." Then he asked "are you still working?" One doesn't "work" on their meal. Apart from that the food was enjoyed by all and the Tera r was lovely. It's tricky to find the restaurant from the street dur to Starbucks logo above the building.
