If you are Vegan or Vegetarian this is the very best. Highly recommend the Hippie Loaf and Jambalaya. Our personal favorites.

The staff is just excellent and the owners make sure your visit is perfect.

Been there many times, always consistent. A nice date night elegant restaurant or great place for a celebration.

Don’t miss dessert. We always get the vegan german chocolate torte with raspberry sorbet.

We highly recommend.

The meal was very good. I had the fillet with goat cheese which was large and cooked perfectly. Tender. The potatoes were creamy and excellent. My husband had the Salmon which he said was the best meal we have had. We will be back.

After several fine dining experiences at The Studio over the years, we have come to expect a special time at a special place. Last night may have been the best ever. This is a quieter time on Hilton Head during a cooler season. We made reservations for 6:15 as days are shorter this time of year. We arrived and were immediately greeted and seated. We always enjoy the cozy bistro-esque atmosphere of the place, enhanced by artwork all around and often (as this occasion) live musical performers. With soft guitar music in the background, we ordered house presented cocktails from the menu—a Mermaid’s Kiss and a Southern Mule. Enjoyed them both while deciding on our entrees. I had already scanned the on-line menu and picked the paella featuring cobia and local shellfish. Janice opted for the grouper fillet with mashed potatoes. Service was attentive w/o being intrusive. Finished our meal with the German Chocolate Torte. A luscious cake topped with chocolate sauce and dark chocolate sorbet. Sort of like a dense frozen mousse. The whole meal was delicious! Our thanks to the staff and chef for making our evening memorable

Excellent food in an art studio setting. My husband had the NY strip and I had the filet mignon. Our food was cooked perfectly and very tasty. Our reservation was on a Thursday night at 5:30PM and there was a fantastic guitarist playing Christmas music and other songs softly in the background. Great food, great service and great entertainment!! Highly recommend The Studio!!

The food is consistently good no matter what dish you choose.
We love the grilled romaine appetizer and I’m partial to the seared tuna...my husband likes the lamb chops. Music is part of the evening and it doesn’t interfere with conversation. We come back to the Studio all the time.

We heard great reviews before we went here and were left very unimpressed. The food was not good for the price. The tuna carpaccio was not carpaccio whatsoever and have 0 flavor. The best part of the meal was the service which was fantastic.

I used a groupon to eat here on vacation for my birthday and our anniversary. I made reservations and noted it was for those special occasions. The hostess was kind, noted that it was my birthday and wished me a good one. We were able to sit outside which was quite dark, but still nice. I ordered a steak, and I ordered it the way I know every chef hates it but I cannot eat meat unless it is "well done, no pink", which is exactly how I ordered my steak with a clenched teeth smile as to apologize. They brought our food and my steak was dripping blood from the middle. Sometimes if it's a little pink I'll just eat the edges, no complaints. But this steak was still mooing. At this time the same lady who welcomed us came to ask how our meal was. I did not want to cause a scene in front of the other patrons and so I quietly said "I'm sorry, but my steak is quite red and I ordered it well done, no pink" She looked at me with disgust and said "okay, and?" I then said "Well I just can't eat it this way, sorry." She said "Want me to cook it longer then or what" No, I thought, I did not want them to cook my already cut into steak dressed in sauce and mushrooms any longer. So I quietly said "umm, no thanks, I'm a little turned off, I'll just grab some dessert in a bit". She literally sighed, raised her eyebrows and turned around and walked away" She came back a bit later and cleared our table without a word. Then handed me the dessert menu without a word. I said "oh no thanks, I think we'll just take the check and get going, but it looks good". She again sighed and said "I thought you were going to get dessert." I replied "no thanks, I'm not feeling that hungry." She turned and walked away and then brought us our check with a "$13 discount for the steak" I took one bite out of. She never apologized and was offended I didn't like it. Yikes.

Overall, a very fine dining experience. Service was spot-on; filet mignon and grouper entrees were done perfectly and our salads were beautiful. The entertainment was a refreshing change from most of today's music - vocalist/guitarist provided background music, so conversation was still possible.

We have been here several times, and it has become one of our must go stops when on the island. The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the waitstaff knowledgable and attentive and the art work is something to be seen. We have recommended it to friends visiting the island. If you are looking for someplace different to dine, try The Studio.

My husband and I absolutely loved the food. I'm a vegetarian and had the exotic mushrooms crepes and my husband had the salmon. Both dishes had us in awe! We started with the spring rolls and ended with these German chocolate torte and you wouldn't know they were vegan if the menu didn't say so. The chef does an amazing job pairing flavors and has offerings to please everyone's palette.

The live music was wonderful and really made our night special and the staff was welcoming and friendly.

The decor is great since the art is done by the owner, chef, and local artists. This place is unassuming from outside since it's in a business park but you will not be disappointed once you walk through the door.
