We had the lamb and the Corvina special, and both were fantastic. Tonja was our server and she was outstanding.

Over the years, we have found the Bluffton Room to always serve great food with very attentive service.
If you like steaks, they cannot be beaten.

This is a truly outstanding restaurant. The best she-crab soup I have ever had in my life! Dover sole and porterhouse were both national level quality. At the end of the meal, the chef came out and he was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and warm. We could not have asked for a better experience – except perhaps for a lower check... Save your pennies for this one – it’s worth it!

Although pricey by Bluffton standards, the food was perfectly prepared and the service excellent. The wine list has a nice selection and most are fairly priced. And they even have parking, which can be tough in that part of town.

Been there multiple times and rated it 5 stars all previous times. This time, just a 3. First, my wife ordered a May River Manhattan, it was perfect. Some time later, she ordered a 2nd one. It came out not looking or tasting anything like the first. They had to redo it. For dinner we both ordered She Crab soup to come before our entrees. Next thing we know, our entrees were delivered and had not yet received the soup. When they delivered the entrees they made a point to advise us not to touch the plates as they were hot. They took the entrees back and brought the soup. The soup came and it looked like a bisque and nothing close to what we expected. We have had She Crab soup many many times at different restaurants and never was it portrayed as a bisque. We questioned the waiter, Ken, and he said it certainly was She Crab. When they brought the entrees back, the plates were cold, so they must have just kept them under a light. All in all, a very disappointing meal experience. I also think the waiter had too many tables to attend to and was a primary contributor to the timing screw ups.

Ambience, food, food service well done. Restaurant has multiple seating arrangements. For best seating, request the booths as this offers the best perspective of the overall eating experience. Tableside bananas foster desert prep was high level. Great craft cocktails & chef is the Sommelier & has great insight into food & wine pairings. Would do this again in a heartbeat.👌

We had a new waitress that needed some supervision. She talked about the chefs special complementary appetizer and we did not receive it, she forgot my husbands salad. She seemed to be paying a lot of attention to other tables near us. Always good food but mediocre service our last time there for a pricey meal

Steak was fabulous!

Cesar salad for two was soggy.

French fries tastes as though they had been sitting for awhile. Not hot and crispy.

The selection of wines by the glass was very limited.

Wait staff was very friendly.

We were looking for a new place closer to home , to make our go to restaurant in Bluffton. Our current go to place is on the island and a bit of a drive. Not sure this will be our new spot.

Tatiana was a GREAT server. Very informative. We celebrated our 14 year anniversary that night and she made it very special. We loved everything we ate, especially the table side salad and the Porterhouse for 2. The ONLY negative was that for the bananas foster dessert, we found it lacking as it was only 1 banana (very small one) that we split and it was supposed to be a dessert for 2. We are from NOLA and while the flavors were there, it was just dissapointing to us. Thanks for making it a memorable night!
