Great dinner. Definitely outside the lines, but Chef Tres, who I did not know was the Chef until after the dinner, waited on us at the counter/expediting area. He plated most of our food and explained every dish.

The eggplant, cabbage, Benton’s Country Ham, Acorn squash, and short ribs were our favorite. My wife did not stop ordering. There was more. Both desserts were great. Beets as dessert? Don’t knock it until you try.

Before going you need to open your mind a little and just let it happen. Very enjoyable.

I’m going back.

Food very good, but portions somewhat small.
Quiet and comfortable, ‘rustic’ decor.

We had a fantastic experience at Sorghum and Salt. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. It’s great they offered a vegan menu and everything was delicious. My husband ordered the pork loin and he loved it! Would definitely recommend and return!

Fantastic little gem. It’s a small an unassuming spot, yet very charming with a ton of character. But the food is the REAL star here, and you can tell it’s made with love. We had the tasting menu with a wine pairing— what a treat! From twice cooked carrots, to the best homemade ricotta, to a tender short rib, and finally a deconstructed cheesecake that was absolute perfection. Every bite is simple and created thoughtfully and intentionally. What a wonderful experience!

Food and service was excellent. Had great options for vegan/vegetarian & the eggplant was outstanding.I had booked a reservation in advance & had to put my credit card down to book the reservation so I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get a table. We were seated at the bar instead of a table.

The tasting menu was a lot of fun and we had some lovely wines, too. The house-made ricotta was outstanding and we also loved the blueberry cheesecake dessert. I found a big chunk of shell in my mussels and the shrimp dish was under-seasoned. Our waiter was great and patiently answered all our questions about the wine.

Tries very hard, but comes up short. I'm all for high-end, small portion meals and courses (i've eaten at some of the best) , but they just did not execute. Exotic ingredients and complicated preparations, however everyone in the party of 4 felt let down. Just not a lot of flavor. Maybe if you order their complete 5-6 course meal you'll feel more satisfied. I left feeling how did a use a one my precious dinner meals in a great culinary town on this place.

This place is a little diamond! We absolutely loved it! Our waiter was awesome and gave us a lot of information about the wines (3 of us had the wine pairing option). The food was really innovative with unusual ingredients. It's not cheap and possibly not great for kids but for our party it was excellent.

Vegan pasta was quite bland; however, the server was kind to try and have the pasta remade, though, unfortunately, the second time around was no different. The wedge salad was STELLAR.

The vegan food was amazing - but pricey. It was just a few blocks from our Airbnb so we gave it a try! We had the wedge salad which was amazing and the homemade pasta dish with carrot butter. My husband had the gnocchi which was a small portion but delicious. For dessert we had the white chocolate mousse which was yummy but quite gelatinous and not quite a mousse. Glad we came - service was fabulous. It was over $100 without the tip so would likely try a less expensive place next. If you’re vegan - certainly out it in your list - and if you’re with non-vegan friends or family it’s perfect as they also have non-vegan food. Oh, and make a reservation as it’s quite small.

EAT HERE! Best experience dining and eating in my life! First timer to Charleston for my besties wedding. A group of us flew in and wanted to have dinner and a night out before we flew back home. Found this gem, and booked for 6, but needed 8. I mentioned that in the comments when I booked online (during early hours they were closed, so couldn’t call) They called me!!! And said no problem we will make it work and they did! EVERYTHING ON THE MENU IS AMAZING. The shareable plates are so good get multiples, because ain’t no body sharing after they take they’re first bite. Staff was on point and accommodating, attentive. 10 out 10! (Chef’s kiss!) thanks!

The restaurant is cute. The service was very good. The food was ok, needed some more flavors. The carrots came highly recommended and they were a little chewy. The ricotta was one of the best things on the menu. I would say that it is best for vegans.
