    One of the best restaurants in Hilton head, we make it a point to dine here each year we come to The island. I Started with the always delicious and generous portion of crab and onion bisque, and for my entrée had local sautéed red grouper with a topping of chopped shrimp, asiago cheese finished in a beur blanc sauce. My wife started with the escargot And finished with a generous portion of sautéed scallops. As always, the service was impeccable. You can’t go wrong at the Studio

    I took my wife there for her birthday while we were on vacation in Hilton Head. The vegan and vegetarian options are some of the best I have ever had. That doesn't leave the carnivores out in the cold. My fillet mignon was like butter and perfectly seasoned. The drinks are delicious and the desserts were wonderful. We were so happy to find this gem of a restaurant.

    We ate dinner at the outside patio. It's a nicely appointed area but faces Pope Avenue which has a lot of traffic. The food was creative and well prepared. Service was prompt but not intrusive. Overall we really liked the experience we had at Artistic Dining. It's one of the more expensive places on Hilton Head with most meals at the $30+ level. That's why we rated "Value" as only 4 stars. The wine list is very good. Free parking in the adjacent lot.

    We enjoyed our evening at The Studio. We started with the Studio salad and then on to the strip steak which were both delicious. Ended the evening with the molten chocolate cake - what’s not to love! The service was attentive (difficult to find at many restaurants these days) and the atmosphere was perfect for quiet conversation. We love this place!

    So many other nice restaurants in the area. If you have a vegan in your party I can see going but O probably wouldn’t go back. The food was great! But for a similar pricing of a place like ELA’S or other upscale restaurants that have a way better atmosphere and view. The owner and staff was friendly it just wasn’t “anything to write home about” like similar restaurant experiences in the area. I’d go to Cowboys or ELA’S before the Studio.

    We had a 7:30 reservation and arrived at 7:20. We ordered drinks and appetizers and said we would order our main courses when we were served the appetizers. We were repeatedly pressured to order our main courses until finally the waitress said the kitchen closes at 8. We asked for the check and left to eat elsewhere. While we were leaving, the owner/chef came out and we said we were surprised that the restaurant accepted a 7:30 reservation when the kitchen closes at 8. He told us that when we own a restaurant we can do what we want! The appetizers were great but there are so many other good restaurants on the island so do not go there!

    This is the only fine dining restaurant that provides equal dining choices for vegans on Hilton Head Island. It was such a welcome alternative to trying to find an establishment that took this lifestyle into account. The food was creative and delicious. The service was superb. We got an opportunity to observe other dishes for non vegans and each appeared to be beautifully plated. Would highly recommend for all diners looking for an intimate experience with exemplary service.

    Was so looking forward to our yearly dinner at The Studio, enjoyed our meal very much. What we didn't enjoy was sitting in the back room, no ambience like the front room looks like they use it when overbooked. I will remember next time to request we are not seated back there. Lights from cars shined in also, a totally different experience from the lovely room in front.

    A great dining experience. We were disappointed that the Hippie Loaf is now made with Beyond Meat, which we didn’t find out until after the meal. It wasn’t stated on the menu and the wait staff didn’t let us know it had changed. Had we known we would have ordered something else. We dined outside so there was some road noise, and we didn’t spend any time inside.
