We think the service was perfect and no changes were needed in that aspect. As for the food, we agreed the restaurant menu was a great deal for the amount we received, but we just thought the overall taste was a 3 - 3.5stars. Our favorite meal were the desserts, so whoever the Pastry Chef is gets a thumbs up!

Calamari and bacon fries were delicious. Our surf and turf and scallops, though, were bland. For the price, we expected a better meal.

There isn’t much of a view on the rooftop bar. Bushes are too tall to see much and the flies made it a less than ideal experience.

The service was very good and while a bit on the noisy side, the ambiance overall was nice.

Service was not great. Drink order wrong and no dinner served until after 2 hours of being there. Food left much to be desired. Crudo was warm and their were more inedible flowers floating in it than actual seafood. We were quite disappointed.

We reserved a table for a group of 15 at 5:45 pm. We arrived at a long table near the window with a long bench for 1/2 of the party. Everyone was seated and ready to order by 6:00. Long story short we did not receive our food until 7:30 pm. Many of the dinners were cold. The food was mediocre for the price. Finally, when we were ready to leave the server would not split the bill. There is no policy regarding NOT splitting large party bills either in the booking process, confirmation, or explained to us when we ordered. In this day of high tech how hard can that be? Overall a very disappointing experience and I will NOT be going back to or recommending Stars restaurant to anyone.

In my experience they should change their name to STAR and remove the S because they certainly did not deserve any more than that from our experience.

Stars was an overall fantastic dining experience! Our waiter went out of his way to offer us suggestions, specifically entrees locate to Charleston. Highly recommend the seafood grits!! Also, a great spot for groups as they had a lot of circle booths!

Good food, clean building. The food was slow in coming out but we had company with us and had a couple of drinks while waiting. Took a little longer then we like, sat down at 7:15 but didn't leave until 10:00

This place was not at all as t looked on line. Definitely don’t think the buffet is worth $25 and it the mimosas were flat. Not impressed at all.

It was too loud and they said they had our table ready and 5 minutes later they sit us at this little table right on top of another couple. We left!

The rooftop was tight and had a limited view of the city. Too many shrubs around the rooftop.

My dinner at Stars was average. Food and service were both ok, but nothing special. Had a vegetarian in my group who asked if there was meat in the shrimp and grits gravy and the waiter told her there wasn't, but when she tried her meal there was andouille sausage in the gravy. I had the Salmon which was good and my other friend had the burger which was also fine - nothing to rave about.

Raymond was our waiter and he made our experience exceptional. His attitude and charisma was unmatched. He was very knowledgeable about the food and drinks and went above and beyond to give us a great night. The food was wonderful, it was a beautiful space, and we had a lovely time celebrating our bachelorette.

We went here with a large group of girls on a Friday night and were so pleased with our experience. Our server was outstanding and the food was delicious. We also went out to the rooftop bar that had a great ambiance. Would definitely return here again. Thank you!

We went with a group of five couples, food and drinks were good and our waiter was very pleasant but it was HOT where out table was. It felt like the AC wasn’t working at all. Very uncomfortable for my husband, who was dressed in slacks and a nice long sleeve shirt.

Food did not taste very good, drinks were good, other clientele were pushy, rude, tried to fight us. How does that even happen? This was a nice dinner out for us, not a bachelor party.

I have been to Stars for drinks many times, but never really thought about it for dinner. Finally attended when friends were in town and I was surprised at how GREAT everything was. 6 people who all got different entrees and not one thing was bad! Would highly recommend!
