    m we shared a delicious salad, had the hoppin john and mac burger- both delicious -too many truffle fires on the plate tho. we were here when the corona virus was impacting travel, so may have been quieter, but we had a wonderful meal, great servers and loved the ambiance. really like a quieter meal experience.

    Came here for my birthday dinner and had a wonderful experience. The bone marrow bread pudding was amazing. We also had the ricotta gnudi, cab deckle, shrimp and grits, and the lemon posset. The whole evening was fabulous and delicious. Definitely recommend.

    This was something else. The cocktails were creative and elegant (I'm an amateur mixologist with a high bar to satisfy), the gnudi appetizer was fabulous. So was the triggerfish but the best part came from them offering a surprise dessert for my daughters (7 and 9) because they behaved well. They did not have to, but they did, making a great dinner while in Charleston even better. We will go back next time we come back to Charleston!

    The restaurant was chic but wine overpriced and food portions small. Also, our waitress was completely inattentive. We had to ask one of her colleagues for several things.

    We had a great experience here. The service was spot on and the food was awesome!! The room was a little dark but did distract too much from the overall experience. You will not be disappointed if you chose to go here.

    We had reservations for 6pm on a Saturday night. There was no host for a couple minutes to greet/seat us and they were not busy so we were worried at first. Once we got seated, the service was amazing from start to finish! We tried the fried oysters and ricotta gnudi with pork. Both were delicious and good portions. I had a vodka drink with cucumber and it was so delicious. We also got the bone marrow bread pudding, which we will be back for this weekend when our friends come into town. My husband ordered the bone in pork chop; however, there was no bone and no sign of a bone missing. He specifically ordered it because it was bone it. It was still delicious, just disappointed about the missing bone. I got the triggerfish and was mot able to finish it due to the taste. It was just ok but had way too much lemon. I guess I don't like triggerfrish. We had a peanut butter and chocolate dessert that was huge and tastey as well. Although, we were slightly disappointed with our entrees, we had a great overall experience and will be back again, at least for the appetizers and bone marrow bread pudding!

    Went for restaurant week and pleasantly surprised that they had vegetarian options available verses having to put together an entree from sides of other dishes. Only possible ways things could be better are that I found it to be a tad noisy and often the seating is so close that it is hard not to hear conversations at adjoining tables. I would rate the food and service as top notch.

    We dined during restaurant week in January 2020 and enjoyed their 3 course with another vegetable instead of a dessert option. Duck confit was amazing ( I took the breast portion of the entree back to our hotel and enjoyed it for breakfast)

    From the moment we walked into the restaurant, everyone was friendly and welcoming. Our server was excellent and knowledgeable. The ambience was very comfortable. We were there for New Year's Eve and although they had their regular menu (not a special NYE one) they served champagne to everyone in the restaurant at midnight. A very friendly and nice touch. Great place to start the New Year and new decade.

    No denying the food was great, the atmosphere was relaxing and the service was outstanding. But, the personable nature of the staff, especially our waiter, made the entire evening one our most pleasurable dining experiences. The general manager was gracious and she went out of her way to ensure our Macintosh experience was memorable.
