Ordered ribeye Med Rare, came med well. Server never asked. Took 10min to get salt and pepper
Delicious dining experience! The food was wonderful as well as the service!
Thank you for the review, we hope to see you again soon!
All was perfect! Our waiter Lukes was excellent. I mentioned that our last experience at The Establishment wasn’t too good but this time more than made up for it! They brought each of us a glass of champagne to say thank you for letting them know. The food was excellent both times.
Thank you for giving us another chance Patricia! We are happy to hear that we could redeem ourselves and we hope to see you again in the near future!
I took my three cousins, who were visiting from out of town, this past Saturday night. Our meals were delicious. Service was good. Ambience is great. Location is perfect. Highly recommend.
Thank you for the wonderful review!
Our new favorite in Charleston. Server very knowledgeable food and drink pairings. Excellent food and atmosphere.
Thank you! We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! Come see us for Happy Hour; Monday-Friday from 5-7pm at the bar!
This meal was fabulous from stsrt to finish! Gnocchi with crabmeat and duck confit were two of the best appetizers I've ever tasted. Wreckfish main course was tender with a flavorful sauce that didn't overpower. Chocolate cake and buttermilk panacotta were the perfect ending. Waitstaff were personable and attentive. We were also made to feel welcomed by one of the managers/coordinators. Overall a very pleasurable experience. Am eager to go back.
Might be my new favorite! Great food, excellent service and lovely ambiance with the piano. We were glad to be in the back room, could still hear the piano a little bit but it was much quieter for conversation at our table. The bar looks fun and I'm hoping to return for cocktails soon. I had the gnocchi with crabmeat for an app (amazing, would do it again!) and the swordfish which was awesome, I also tasted my husbands wreckfish and it melts in your mouth. A pricey evening but I would definitely recommend!
Thank you for the kind review! Come see us during Happy Hour at the bar; Monday through Friday from 5-7pm!
The starter was great, but our entrees were lackluster. The fish was cooked well but the seasoning wasn't my favorite. Especially the beans underneath, which didn't have the least bit of salt or seasoning on them. Just plain, chalky beans. Dessert was ok. On a brighter note, the pianist was wonderful, and the service was really good. I feel like they probably have other good tasting options, just didn't care for mine.

Great choice for restaurant week! Wreck fish and sword fish were cooked perfectly. We will be back.
One of the best restaurants in Charleston
Thank you! We hope to see you again soon!
The cuisine is creative and well presented. The dessert could have been better, rather basic for an expensive restaurant. We went during restaurant week on a Thursday evening and the noise level was very high. A table of six close to us was very laud. The restaurant staff should have said something to this group and insisted on an observance of restaurant manners, which is lacking in many establishments.
A pleasant evening with friends, good food, wine, ambiance plus served very professionally and timely by knowledgeable staff!
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review!
WE came for restaurant week. All dishes were off the menu and true to size. Very delicious food!! Our server was on point and very friendly! We will be back!
Thank you Kelley! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Dine here often.
This was restaurant week.
Spectacular price-fixed offerings.
Thank you for the review, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Place is lovely and food was delicious. Would return.
Thank you Jean, we hope to see you again soon!
Our experience was well over the top. Even the bread was delicious beyond our experience. We enjoyed the restaurant week venue which was selecting our choice of appetizer,entree, and desert off their main menu. Each entree was unique and delicious. We dine in Charleston often and this was our first time at the Establishment. It certainly will not be our last.
Thank you for the wonderful review, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Fantastic service and exceptional food. Loved the pianist in the background as we enjoyed our meal. Would absolutely return on our next trip to CHS!
Thank you Kaitlyn, we are happy to hear that you had a wonderful experience with us!
1st time to this beautiful restaurant, highly recommended by one of my friends. The drinks were tasty. The main dish I ordered they ran out of and the server did not tell me prior to ordering, so I ordered the snapper, which they ran out of as well, so they substituted a less expensive lower quality fish and charged me the same. Our server let our waters go empty. Food was bland. We had to ask for salt and pepper for the swordfish. In my experience this place was poor quality here in Charleston. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone unless you enjoy wasting your money.
Excellent food and wonderful service! Very knowledgeable server who offered great suggestions and answers to all questions. All food was absolutely delicious- can’t wait to come back!
Thank you Megan, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Amazing. Katlyn was a great server. The food was quite good and the star of the night was the gnocchi dish and the scallop appetizer!
Go to the Establishment! You won’t regret the experience!
Thank you for the review, we are happy to hear Katlyn took great care of you! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Amazing as always. The scallops were delicious. Great service.
Thank you for the review!
I had two great meals at The Establishment! Justin took great care of us snd the food was terrific! I had a beef dish and duck app and we shared Brussel sprouts. Lovely service and a memorable evening. Great for groups, work or date night. Nice bar with ample seating as well!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are happy you enjoyed dining with us and will be sure to pass along your kind words to Justin!
Great service and delicious food.

Dinner was superb, loved the atmosphere of piano music. Service was great , the Sommelier was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.
Thank you Julie! We are happy to hear you had a great experience with us!
We were a table for 8. Our drinks came out sporadically to the point that they didn’t charge us for two because they forgot. Two of our dinners were returned for being over cooked so they gave us free desserts. The portions were small. They only came around with bread once.
We love the restaurant but New Years Eve was very chaotic and more than the restaurant could handle. We’ve been there before and had a great experience so this was disappointing. Most of our meals and appetizers were great.
Karen, we apologize that this experience was not congruent with your other visits. We hope to see you again soon so that we can provide the level of service and quality of food that we aim to provide every day. We appreciate your feedback, as it is taken to heart and used to make us better!
Delightful new year's eve dinner. Excellent food and service. Couldn't have been better! Thank you.
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed dining with us on New Year's Eve!
Limited menu. We brought friends there and embarrassed over selections, portion size and price of portions. We had gnocchi as appetizer and got 4 very small pieces for $50. It was a joke. We’ve been there 4 previous times and unfortunately won’t be back. I use to think they were on same level as Halls. No way
From start to finish - a most delightful & delicious experience!
Thank you Debbie for the review, we are happy you enjoyed dining with us!
Wonderful place. I cannot day enough good things about it. The drinks were phenomenal and the service was friendly and attentive. The food was incredible. So fresh and clean. Can’t wait to come back!
Thank you for your taking the time to leave us a review! We hope to see you again very soon! We have a wonderful Happy Hour at the bar every Monday-Friday from 5-7pm.
Really amazing experience. Would highly recommend. I think this is why The establishment is so well thought of. The meals (grouper and swordfish) were absolutely the best I have ever had.
Thank you for the wonderful review Shawn!
Interesting restaurant, rather limited menu, everything is ala carte. The food was tasty and artfully presented, but the entree portions were a bit on the small side considering the price.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Our menu is locally sourced and therefore can be limited based on the season and what is available, however we do our best to provide well rounded options. We are very pleased to hear that you did enjoy the meal and hope to have you back in to see us again soon.
Everything was perfect
Thank you Jeremy, we are happy to hear you enjoyed dining with us!
Everything we tried was fantastic including food and cocktails. We visited the buay bar and also sat at a very comfortable booth. Great people watching aside from the great food. Our waiter was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu. This is our new favorite in Charleston.
Thank you for the wonderful review! Come back and see us during happy hour in the bar; Monday-Friday from 5-7pm!
An excellent dining experience. Innovative cuisine and superb service. Highly recommend this restaurant, clearly one of Charleston's best.
We are so happy to hear your enjoyed dining with us! We hope to see you again soon!
Great experience. The food was outstanding. The seafood was excellent! We had a larger party (8) and the shape of the table was perfect. You could easily talk with everybody. Also our server, Nassar, was right on point. He was there when needed, but we never felt rushed.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. We are pleased to know that Nasser took wonderful care of you and that we did an outstanding job!
Great food. Nice atmosphere. Not too noisy. The cocoa flan was unbelievably good!
Thank you! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us!
Excellent server who was proud of his city, business, and restaurant. Very knowledgeable from both a food and beverage standpoint. A real pro! Other staff engaging and pleasant. Brian, the manager, was of perfect temperament and attitude for the position. A sense of calm and confidence without a hint of arrogance.
Thank you Mark, we greatly appreciate your kind and thoughtful review. We will be sure to pass these compliments on to our staff!
Thank you for the 5 star rating!
