We just love the Palmetto Cafe for a special lunch with friends. The Palmetto Sampler is the best!!!
Made reservations for brunch.
My daughter and I were sat at a very small (rectangular) uncomfortable table.
Our waitress was wonderful, friendly and attentive. The food (brunch/buffet) was just average, the sausage links were hard (over cooked), everything else was just there. Not worth $19. The Belgium waffles mentioned on the buffet, are not served regularly. But our waitresses had some prepared for us. She definitely delivered great service.
The food is always excellent as well as the service! CJ did a great job as our server. Mrs Scott always greets us at the door. She is a good person! We always enjoy our visits to The Palmetto Cafe!
Nice place with a great southern flare! Brunch had many great options.
Food was fabulous! Service was fabulous!
John was fabulous!
Michael was fabulous!
Best brunch I’ve had in a long time. Excellent food choices. Everything taste wonderful.
Was beautiful setting with great food and excellent service. The surprise was that in the app, it showed $ for cost, and was much higher than that.
Lovely time.. we’ll be back soon! John was our server and he was fabulous!
Very pretty surroundings, service was very good. French toast and bacon were good but pricey for the quality. Still, it is worth paying for the scenery and convenient location.
We had the breakfast buffet. Every item at the buffet was lukewarm. They did have an omelet station but the line was too long and we didn't want to stand around for 15 minutes to get an omelet. We had the scrambled eggs and they were lukeawrm at best as was everything else. For $29.00 it was a complete ripoff.
Great experience, glad I spent my birthday there!
We had breakfast there each morning we stayed at the Belmond. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious! The staff was so friendly and always greeted us by name. They made us feel welcome and special.
Great dining experience on the first morning of our vacation! We dined with our son who is allergic to dairy, walnuts and pecans. The staff was accommodating and exceedingly kind in their care of this situation. Thank you!
We had a really skilled waitress and were so appreciative of all her special attention. Please thank her for us.
I really enjoyed all the service it was remarkable.
We lived the location and ambiance. Even though we could not sit outdoors due to the rain it felt like we were due to the large widows overlooking the courtyard. Food was excellent and our server Ruthie was the the sweetest. The crab cake was exquisite and the creme brûlée was decadent.
Excellent Sunday brunch and service. Ordered off the menu. Beautiful setting and noise level low.
We had breakfast at the Palmetto on July the 8th before departing Charleston. We both had the buffet. The staff and the ambiance were both pleasant. The staff was super helpful. The buffet has fresh fruit and many tasty items. It was however pricey. That being said the caramel brioche was one of the most AMAZING padgries I have ever eaten!!!!
Waiter misheard me twice, I ordered waffle. He brought out pancakes. He took it off the bill so that’s cool. My husband breakfast sandwich was greasy and did not taste very good. The atmosphere was pretty. There is a gorgeous courtyard to look at while dining. It was very expensive for regular breakfast. $25 and up!
Food was great and our server was outstanding. Had a great time!!! Will definitely return.
Food, drink and service was fabulous!
Thank you Lily and Gray! Good job!
Best place for lunch in Charleston!
My daughter and I came for lunch to celebrate her birthday. The food was wonderful. The venue delightful. At the end of our meal she was presented with a lovely crème brûlée. A very nice lunch.
Sunday Buffet, great fresh food. Excellent service. Our anniversary weekend, quite fitting finale
Decor and atmosphere was amazing and so were the drinks. The She Crab soup spectacular but the entree hamburger and lobster was the worst I’ve ever had.
the decor was lovely, the tables were elegantly set, the brunch was "to die for" excellent, & our server was energetic, attentive, excellent and charming (Adriana).... it turns out that both Adrianna & i were from Chicago, originally and we had a nice/nostalgic chat about that city.... thanks to y'all for a great time.....
Nice garden view, John is excellent.
Great food and excellent service. Kevin split our food for us to make it easier to share. Highly recommend.
Most pleasant. In spite of big Spoleto festival not full at all. Food excellent. Champagne expensive. Overall nice experience but don’t go with an empty wallet!!
Great Service and very nice breakfast options. The best breakfast experience we had in Charleston, SC
We had Brunch there, and everything was tasty. I would have liked to have biscuits on the buffet!
Chef's new menu items are very tasty. We had the snapper and the salmon lunch entrees. Both were very tasty as was the chocolate dessert. Service was terrific. Lilly greeted us warmly as usual and we spent some time comparing notes with Bill the manager.
I’ve been going to this restaurant for about 15 years. Menu has kept old favorites. Best best Bellini in town and the sweet peach iced tea wil keep you asking for more. If you can’t decide, get the Palmetto Sampler. It has smoked chicken salad, a slider 21 burger, crab cake, she crab soup and thin sliced fries. Desserts are very imaginative. Kudos to the chef and pastry chef. For the table a nice selection of breads along w 3 flavors or butter. A great beginning to a delicious meal. The staff is phenomenal. Our waiter this particular day was John. Very attentive but not overwhelming. Our long time wait person is the ever present, Ruthie. She has worked here for a couple of decades minimum. You don’t need to be staying at The Belmond to enjoy this very beautifully bright and elegant dining great!
We asked for a nice table, and were happily seated at a table looking out on the courtyard. The lunch was delicious, Server Colleen was the best we’ve experienced anywhere, and it was an altogether wonderful experience.
Lilly was great and Mrs Scott was fabulous!
Austin did an excellent job! Mike stop by and we appreciate his attention!
The restaurant, as always, was delightful! It was the perfect place for celebrating a friend's birthday! For some reason, the service was slow that day and that has never happened on previous occasions. There were not that many people in the restaurant so I couldn't figure the reason. As always, though, the Palmetto Cafe was awesome and we will return!
Lilly greeted us by name and with a smile as usual. She is such a great ambassador for the Palmetto Cafe. We had a new server (Kevin) who was very attentive and accommodating. He knew when and when not to interrupt our business lunch and that skill is rare in this day and age when restaurants shuffle patrons in and out in an attempt to turn tables as much as possible. Bravo Palmetto!
We enjoyed our lunch; food was very good. Wait staff responsive
Without being intrusive. Steppped up pace when we explained time
Excellent. The garden is lovely to enjoy lunch
Austin was fabulous!
Mike stopped by several times to check on us! We love Palmetto Cafe and the staff! First Class!
