First time visit and now we would say one of the best restaurants in Greenville! We did the chef choice menu on Sunday night with wine pairings, and it was phenomenal. Our waiter was friendly, informative and attentive. We can't afford to eat this way every week, but I wish we could! Even still, it is a great value for gourmet dining.

Love this restaurant. The food is exquisite. Service amazing. My 12 & 9 year old loved it. The cheeseboard was fabulous. The Brussels sprouts were heavenly. The squid delectable. Scallop entree yummy. Hanger steak melt in your mouth and brioche donuts a fun end to the night!

Food was delicious. Service poor. Table of four. Restaurant was less than half full on a Friday night. Waiter very friendly, but took forever to deliver beverages to table. This continued through evening. Very long delay between starters and entrees. Very long delay to receive second round of beverages. While food was excellent, we will not drive out to TR again to receive poor service. If restaurant had been packed, we may have been able to understand delays. We expected top notch service for prices they charge and were disappointed. Too bad because food was really good.

What a very unexpected but highly anticipated evening. Topsoil delivered on all points. Went for the Sunday Wine Pairing Dinner. The casual but sophisticated ambience, including a string duet, delivered an amazing evening of expertly prepared plates each accompanied by a delightful pairing of unique wines poured using the Coravin system ensuring that each glass is at full depth of flavor and intensity. The freshness of each dish showcases the best in farm to table authenticity. Topsoil is a gem in this quant hamlet called Travelers Rest. Look forward to a return to this wonderful find very soon!

Topsoil is fantastic. Food is wonderful, don't miss the unique wine selections and incredible charcuterie boards. Servers are friendly and knowledgeable.
So much fun just to sit at the bar and learn from the bartender or enjoy an afternoon on their porch.

Chef Adam Cooke continuously amazes with his labor intensive sourcing, preparation, cooking, and presentation.

In the the realm of astonishing food where "less is more" he most certainly prevails, equal to meals we have had at the French Laundry in Napa for example.

Very nice NOT to have to reserve 3-6 months in advance to get on a maybe waiting list too! The week of is just fine right now.

Last night my wife's Crispy Duck Cassolet and my Halibut Entrée were so special neither of us was willing to share a taste with the other!

His cooking is never suited for great quantities to bulk up, eaten hurriedly to catch a train home. They are for savoring, lingering, and talking with your dinning companions.

Great service and ambiance. We really enjoyed our time together.
It took a long time to get drink orders though. I know they are handcrafted, but that process was slow. We had already ordered appetizers and food and spoke to the waitress three times before the cocktails came out. Other than that, it was amazing. Thanks for making our Birthday gathering memorable.

The wait staff was courteous and quick to get us seated. Our server was knowledgeable about the ever evolving menu (the ingredients are locally sourced and vegetables are seasonal, so that could be tricky). It was our first visit so we ordered based on the recommendations of our server. The Brussels sprout appetizer was exceptional! My scallop entree was cooked to perfection, also the textures and flavors were complimentary. My fiancé had the lamb dish and once again you could tell the chef and his crew have a mastery of the culinary arts. The meat was tender and seasoned brilliantly with a well executed pasta. The bartender made the most delicious aperitif and I also enjoyed her mixed drink “the smoke show.” You may have to spend a good deal of money for the dinner that we ordered, but in my opinion it was worth every cent!

Excellent quality food and unique ambience. Nice atmosphere with band on Saturday night. Speed of service was extremely poor but not our servers fault. Significantly understaffed for a completely full restaurant. Waited 90 minutes after getting drinks and spreads before we got main entree and they forgot to bring appetizer which came with the main course. They struggled with a simple Tito’s and soda with fresh lime but was afraid to ask again to fix. The staffing issue was enough to make me struggle to want to return.

My consumption at visits have included: Brussel Sprouts and Shitaake Mushrooms, a very nice glass of Tempranillo blend, and the Beauty in the Beets cocktail. All were excellent, although the appy had a bit too much oil/butter for my taste, and the cocktail was a bit sweeter than I prefer. With those adjustments, I would recommend all I've sampled.

From the ambiance to the menu, from the cocktails to the service, from the food to the presentation, and from the concept to the staff there is not a glaring weakness about Topsoil. It was every bit of what I expected a restaurant on the James Beard radar to be. Topsoil is delicious, innovative, yet unpretentious (unlike the stylistic approach of this review. I would recommend anyone and everyone dining there.

My wife is vegan, I am not, but boy eat Vegan here...or don't - either way they will knock your socks off.

I couldn't have asked for a better Valentine's Day dinner. The drinks were dangerously good, the food was amazing and the staff was attentive but not overbearing. The food was paced well and our writer's recommendations were spot on. It was relatively quiet and laid back but it did pick up a bit when the live music started. Not overwhelming but it did get a little difficult to talk (we were directly in front of the musicians). It was an absolutely special night and I would absolutely go again. Compliments to the chef.
