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.

One of the best meals I’ve had! JC in the kitchen was incredible and the service was top notch. Definitely one of Charleston’s best.

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.

Small menu offerings. They were out of the only item we had wanted. Substituted and other and served the biscuit burned.

Food was very good, nice level of service. Restaurant is warm and inviting. A little oasis of calm for brunch in the midst of King St. chaos.

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.

Michelle was amazing! She walked through the offerings with such ease and offered her advice on certain dishes. It was my husband’s 40th and they surprised him with a dessert at the end of dinner. We had so many wonderful dishes. The rabbit, gnudi and Bone Marrow Bread pudding were so delicious.

The Macintosh was the best place we ate while in Charleston. Drew was an outstanding waiter, who found out it was our anniversary and started us off with a glass of champagne. His recommendations helped us pick out the Ricotta Gnudi for our starter, which was unbelievable. The manager Katie sat down with us and spent some time getting to know us and answering menu questions. It was a great night! The hanger steak and fish were delicious.

The food was marvellous. The Mac Attack on the brunch menu is a must-try. For the fries, I recommend sharing because it is huge. The service was great as well. Highly recommended.

Great meal! High quality ingredients cooked perfectly. A farm to table restaurant with several modern, innovative dishes. Service was professional, well paced, and knowledgeable (a good indicator of a well run establishment). Menu is updated daily. Easily a top pick restaurant in Charleston

The service was the worst part. I made the reservation, and they seat us in the worst place, next to the kitchen, they had better tables available. A couple next to us when we got into the restaurant got better seating and they didn't have a reservation. They forgot the greens that come with my dish. But the food was ok. I think in general the staff need more training in service.

With so many great restaurants in Charleston I think the MacIntosh is underated. Perfect portion sizing, quality over quantity, with amazing flavors. Even my salad was off the charts.

Great food only exceeded by the service!
Savannah, our waitress, was superb.
Knew the food, made great recommendations and surprised my wife with a birthday cake slice.
Farm to table is not just given lip service as food is fresh and imaginatively prepared.
We will be baaack!
