    This is one of my absolute favorite places. Chef Marco has created such a beautiful environment with equally beautiful food. I had an amazing lamb special and my boyfriend had the fish. We both stated it was some of the best food we have ever had. This place is a gem.

    Weird… the soups were good. Entrees less so. We had the halibut and filet. The experience was strange. The service was very unaccommodating but incredibly polite. Weird because the requests were not complicated. It was so bizarre. Oh well we had a great laugh over the ridiculous situation we found ourselves in. Joking that maybe we were being punked. We weren’t. Not likely to return despite the good laugh it gave us.

    Upon arrival the owners greeting was "you have to remove your hat" When I asked why, he said that he did not allow hats in the dining room. It was a man's brim hat that I was wearing because it was raining outside, and one that I would not have worn while dining. My wife an I decided to split a salad, and we had to ask for 2 salad plates, and additional salad dressing. The drinking water had a horrible taste. The lobster Mac and Cheese was supposed to be topped with Panko bread crumbs and bacon bits, and it was not. And, it contained only 2 small pieces of lobster. I There was no domestic beer offered, and when we asked for bread, the server said they do not serve bread. No valet parking which was explained by the owner "I don't like valet parking" The fonts on the menu were so small, my wife could not read the menu and I struggled to read it even with my glasses on. On a positive note, my meal was delicious, but my wife did not enjoy hers. Upon leaving, I mentioned the aforementioned issues to the owner, he did NOT (even one time say "Im sorry") Oh, and by the way my tab was $247.43 with tip.

    The menu was amazing - many unique choices. We were surprised that there was no indoor dining the night we went, but fortunately it was a beautiful evening. You have to ask for indoor seating through October when making a reservation. Our entrees took a little longer than expected but our waiter checked in with us and told us the status so we knew they were being prepared. We asked about sharing appetizers and desserts and Dallon, (I think that was his name), our server, recommended the ones that would be easiest to share. He was very attentive and pleasant.

    Seated outdoors, the ambience is like a haven...shrouded in trees with a water fountain in the background. It's like the world is a million miles away. Menu is outstanding, like fine dining and some comfort food done Executive Chef style. It's not cheap, but considering what you get in quality, the value is there. The Owner and Chef, Marco, is friendly and approachable, and he'll approach you to converse about your experience...he is genuinely interested. Servers and busboys are courteous and respectful of your privacy. We'll be back for sure.

    The host at the entrance needs a training on being courteous. Has a condescending tone and treats people like 5yr olds. That was the only horrible part of the service. Everyone else was great and caring. Food tasted good but port

    The service was exceptional and the food was even better. I was shocked to find a restaurant in Draper serving the quality of food I usually only experience in a large coastal city! The wide variety of items on the menu was also impressive. Compliments to the Chef and owners!! Our expectations were exceeded and we will definitely return!

    The Charleston Restaurant began as a favorite destination of ours when we wanted to share or celebrate a special night out. Unfortunately, our past two eating experiences at Charleston have been disappointing. I understand that all restaurants are facing tremendous challenges to find good and reliable wait staff these days, and that inflationary pressure is causing price increases - be that as it may, menu price points and certain service mis-steps don't add up to an enjoyable or good dining experience. We will not be returning. I'm happy to share specific details with anyone interested in hearing our issues.

    Service was poor, appreciate we had a late booking time for 8.15pm but the wait staff was poor. We wanted another drink to be told that the bar had closed without letting us know. Was poor service for the price. Loved the location, ambience and food! Will be back but the service was disappointing.

    Food excellent, but nevertheless a bit overpriced; Ambiance fantastic; Waiter extremely snippy at first; No decaff coffee available; Way too many rules (indoor dress code - didn't apply outside, 2 people can stay 1 & 1/2 hrs, 3 people 2 hrs; no separate checks - not even 2 checks for 3 people) - draconian. Other fine-dining places in SLC don't have all these rules.

    Absolutely fabulous! I have enjoyed fine dining all over the world and the food at The Charleston ranks with the best. Chef Silva has a nice variety in his menu, presentations are lovely, and most importantly the preparations and flavors are superb. Portions are perfect and do not disappoint, and pricing reflects fine dining. If Chef Silva's menu appeals to you I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

    The atmosphere is second to none. It's a lovely restaurant, especially in the outdoor seating. This locale is very romantic, but you could host a business dinner to impress even the most fussy pallette. The prices are very stout, even to the point of over-expensive. However, the food is very enjoyable, served by attentive and professional staff, in an ambient that is spectacular.
