    My wife and I had dinner at Sorghum & Salt on Sunday. Were were greeted and seated quickly for our reservation. We did the tasting menu with six courses and we were blown away by each dish. The food was beautifully plated and tasted great. The serving staff were friendly and quick to remove the plates between courses.

    Beautiful small plates with delightful flavor combinations; cozy, rustic space; attentive service. I will make a beeline for this restaurant any time that I visit Charleston. The small plates were a little larger than expected, so I think that two small plates per person could be plenty. The restaurant is located about a half-hour walk from historic Charleston, and parking is difficult to find nearby, so it’s worth considering a taxi or pedi-cab if you are staying in the historic center. Note that beverages include wine and beer, but not cocktails.

    Excellent service and food. We sat at the bar and got to see the action in the kitchen. Downside was that the lights from the kitchen were a little glaring, taking away from the ambience. That was really my only (very minor) feedback. We did the 6 course tasting menu and it was all fantastic. Highly recommend!

    Never fails to impress. Acorn squash, grilled cheese and tomato soup, parsnips, and of course the Beets for dessert. Flounder was the market fish of the day with tomato vinaigrette…simple, light, and makes your taste buds dance. A great locals spot.

    Delicious food- the vegan options were fantastic- the crab and short ribs rocked- what really stood out were the yellow beet dish, vegan gnocchi and the ricotta was to die for even though the focaccia would have been better as a crusty bread. Marinated mussels were good and a lot of them but needed some spice perhaps. Overall fabulous night for 3 at just above 200 bucks before tip.

    This is simply one of the absolute best restaurants in Charleston. Even if you are a "meat" lover, you will love what they do with vegetables here and there are fish and meat dishes on the menu. If you are a vegetarian, you will be ecstatic that there is a restaurant you can dine at with so many options. This is a must go to if you are visiting Charleston - get the tasting menu!

    I made this reservation one week in advanced and requested dinning room seating. We were sat at a very small table by the bar, near the door. We order the 6 course chefs tasting paired with wine. The food was good but not exceptional. The experience was not memorable and it would have helped if the waiter paid more attention to detail and showed off the different courses. This was a special treat for my mom and now it’s one of the worse chef’s tasting I’ve ever experienced.
