As always the Alcove food and atmosphere was amazing. We went for Valentine's day so it was very nice. My only gripe was i never got my drink i ordered, which I was kinda disappointed about for the level I expect out of the Alcove which is perfection. I never said anything, just had water all night. Everything else was amazing of course.

As always, The Alcove is the best in our area. We are so fortunate to have such an elegant restaurant. I had the scallops, done to perfection. Thank you again for a wonderful evening.

Another great experience. Top service, delicious food, (salmon +), loved the pecan chocolate ice cream dessert. + table setup, rooms provide a great venue for family or social group gathering.

After seeing this restaurant listed on Open Table’s monthly top 10, we decided to try it. The Alcove is a pleasant surprise, elegant yet casual. The food was delicious, the atmosphere very tasteful and the service was great! We will certainly return.

Wonderful meal, although our visit got off to a bad start. The hostess said there was a short wait and told us we could wait in the bar. We ordered drinks, finished them and, after about a half-hour, still hadn't been seated. I finally went back to the hostess to ask about our table and she had forgotten about us. She apologized and seated us.

We have been to the renovated Alcove several times and have been very pleased. This evening, however, we were seated at a round table for five, with only four of us, which made it inconvenient for talking and service. Our dinners were very good, especially the Oysters Rockafeller- so delicate and delicious. My friend and I also really enjoyed our Bookworm cocktails. Food wise, I would say the rolls are the weakest point-not memorable at all. Our overall experience was good except for our seating, which was made with a reservation for four.

This was a real find! The food was great, the service was attentive and friendly, and the price was very fair. We intend to re-visit often.

Met family here from out of town. Son was up for the holiday from Charleston SC. I’d been here for dinner, but wanted to try lunch. We all agreed that the Alcove’s food, service, ambiance and overall dining experience rivals some of the best restaurants in the Charleston area. Wait staff were extremely professional, friendly and intuitive regarding our dining. I can’t say enough positive adjectives about the Alcove.
