We had a nice experience tonight. We are here visiting from Tampa, FL . The food, drinks and staff were excellent. We decided on the 3 course meal for $45 a person. We selected the

RAINBOW SALAD (very good)
Kale, Apple, Pear, Pineapple, Herbed Goat Cheese, Candied Pecan, Honey Vinaigrette

CROSS-CUT SHORT RIB (delicious)
Marinated Soy Garlic & Ginger Grilled Korean Style Short Rib, Goat Cheese Mashed Potato, Whiskey Demi Glace, Grilled Asparagus, Fresno Pepper Chimichurri

CARAMEL CHEESECAKE (so delicious, perfect holiday dessert)
Whipped Cream

The portions were the perfect size and didn’t leave you feeling over stuffed. Highly recommend this restaurant and wish there was a location in Tampa. It would for sure be a hit. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

The food was ok but did not equate to the prices. There are other dining options that have similar food options and more reasonable pricing. By far the most expensive brunch we have had in Charleston. But not the tastiest.
They do not have straws at all, despite promoting frozen drinks at brunch. Quite difficult to drink a frozen drink without a straw of any kind.
The restaurant was rather empty for a weekend brunch- I think this reflects the high prices and lack of ambiance.

My wife and I celebrated our 32 year anniversary. One of the best meals in our lives. Our server, Logan was the best. We will be back just for her. We had the Ousters, Swordfish, Risotto and Chef Lori famous cheesecake which was Carmel, cheesecake on a ginger snap crust. We took some to go. Needless to say we will be back.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Stars. Staff was outstanding.
We both ordered the ribeye steaks. My wife's steak contained more fat than what we expected from a $50 steak. My steak had some fat but not as much fat as the steak my wife received. The taste was delicious, just a little too fatty.

Some items we ordered were stellar and others fell completely flat. The lobster Mac and cheese was broiled too long and the cheese sauce separated into oil turning it into Mac and oil very disappointing . The lobster shrimp toast bwas also over broiled turning the sesame seeds black. The tuna star tare was fabulous and so was the filet.

Family Christmas meal. Lack of menu choices-many items were not available. Food quality was way overpriced in the competitive Charleston dining scene. No one in our party reported having a really good meal, just lackluster by out of town standards. The service was somewhat better. The entire experience screams “tourist trap!”

Called ahead to let them know we would be arriving about 10-15 minutes later than our reservations. Hostess was very polite and replied with “no problem, we can still accommodate your party. Thanks for calling”. I thought that was nice. Food, drinks and service were above average. Had a great time with my wife and the couple who joined us. Never disappointed when we come here!

Stars is always a good place to go to. The restaurant itself is very pretty and comfortable. The food is very yummy and the drinks are good. It's a solid choice every time. The food isn't the most amazing thing I've ever had, but the brunch is very enjoyable. The menu is simple and done well. We had the steak and sun dried tomato omelette with a dill cream sauce and that was amazing.

The hostess, Billy was accommodating & so friendly. Our waiter, Colby gave us great service. However, our food was awful. We had to send two entrees back because it was too cold to eat- everything was either undercooked or overcooked.
