My wife and I were very impressed with the overall experience for our anniversary dinner. The menu wasn’t over complex but remained varied enough for a diversity of pallets. We enjoy foodie experiences and this was one we both would revisit. My complements to all the staff.
Our experience at The Establishment was a culinary Trifecta-the ambience of this beautiful building coupled with an impeccable level of service by a highly attentive and knowledgeable wait staff would have been enough to ensure a truly memorable evening but the food quality the Chef and his staff delivered confirmed this is the best restaurant in Charleston. The fresh local ingredients and complex layers of flavor in each dish are a mastery of the creative menu that provides something for everyone. Suggest sharing appetizers as you’ll want to taste them all!
Regret I failed to take photos of this beautiful food.
excellent service and nice menu. small plates were perfect size. attention to detail
Love eating at that bar! The ricotta gnocchi keeps me coming back!
Excellent evening. Warm welcome,waiter was top notch,chef was in the zone, and Brian was shredding the wine pairings once again!
Great place, great people. Shane make us feel very comfortable... He's the best.
Amazing staff, food and service. 10 out of 10. I highly recommend to anyone staying in Charleston.
Excellent food and service. Daily menu. The only weakness was paucity of dessert selections
Maybe our best overall meal experience in Charleston and Charleston is our favorite foodie city. The staff was amazing and we will recommend to everyone. A great experience for a special dinner occasion.
Outstanding gnocchi and grouper for dinner. Wine was excellent. Only complain, we wanted a nice crusty bread to mop up the wonderful juices for gnocchi sauce. The rolls were like wonder bread. Very strange. Everything else was over the top.
Wonderful evening. Everyone enjoyed it.
The Establishment is very soft and cozy inside and has a great bar. We had an especially attentive wonderful female server was especially great! Food options were excellent!
Henry and Paula were exceptional! From the time we walked in, to the time we finished dessert, the entire experience was perfect!
Thank you for helping make our 31st Anniversary special
Excellent service and Food. Menu changes daily and it was very well done with all great choices when we were there. The décor is quite nice. We sat at high top table near the kitchen, and noise was good/energetic and our group could easily have a nice conversation. We would definitely return when we are back in town. Might have been the best swordfish I've had in quite a long time!
Food was a little bland, limited items on menu with a number of them being unavailable. Temperature of restaurant was on the warm side. Even dessert selection was limited from item on menu.
Amazing experience! Outstanding food and service, the waitstaff and bartenders were the best!
It was FREEZING! We asked multiple times to have AC Lowered but cold air blew on our legs and feet until we gave up and moved to the bar. Otherwise, was a wonderful waiter, service, food.
Excellent food, excellent service, perfect atmosphere and an overall great experience! We will visit again!
Everything was delicious. The lump crab gnocchi was superb!!! The wait staff were very knowledgeable and friendly.
The food we shared was exceptional: Snapper, spaghetti squash and gnocchi…….
Chase, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the chefs menu, but I would like to suggest that when clients order a cocktail that he brings them to the table before going over all items and then asking if we were ready to order.
We really wanted to have our cocktails and chat before even thinking about looking a t menu.
Warm Regards, Kathy Gardner
PS. Paula, the water girl should be promoted to a waitress. Big smile, lovely attitude and efficient.
The food was superior and so was the wait staff!
It was fabulous. The food was great and the service was impeccable.

Exceptional as always!
One of the best dining experiences of our lives! Can’t wait to come back!
appetizers were good. entrees were underwhelming
Excellent, as always! Accommodated our request for a particular table. Food and service truly 5 star. Thanks to Michael and Paula as well as the rest of the team for providing a memorable dining experience. Loved the taste recommendations and the special “fluffanutter” ice cream!!
Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was spot on and ambiance was lovely.
Delightful pleasant and warm personnel. Excellent food. Offer limited entrees (10 or so) but the focus is on high quality preparation and it absolutely succeeds.
Loved the setting! Very good food, excellent service and great drinks.
The Establishment is a treat. The food is quite good and the service is flawless. It was a great surprise to find in Charleston...and most welcome.
Excellent food and service
We are local to the area and so happy The Eatablishment is open again.
From the moment you walk in you feel the warmth of the staff and the ambiance of the resturant.
Service is perfectly timed to allow quiet conversation. The menu draws you in with just the right amount of choices and all fresh to the area.
Wine Stewart took the time to help is make the right choice for the eve ING meal. Checked to ensure we were pleased.
We will be back....
The atmosphere was quaint and our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately, our actual meal was on the average side.
It was delicious as always and had a delightful time!
Best swordfish ever, moist and tasty with a nice crust. French Sauvignon blanc excellent
Late night dinner - tried 3 small plates. Outstanding presentation and flavor. Service was impeccable. Will definitely be going back!
Small menu, good selections. Excellent friendly service
