    Studio is a first class experience. I cant say enough about the courtesy of the staff...amazing food...mood music just right. Restaurant week menu was delicious. Salad delicious, just the right amount of dressing, not overpowering. Escargot was artfully presented. Grouper with shrimp was plentiful and delicious. Salmon was done just right. All desserts were amazing. This is a new go to restaurant for us.

    Everything about The Studio was outstanding. The food is the best on the island. I had ahi tuna and it was the best I’ve had anywhere. My husband had lamb chops and he too said they were probably the best he has ever had (and he has had a lot). Service was impeccable and the live music was just the right volume. This was our first visit to The Studio and we will definitely be back.

    One of the few restaurants with multiple vegetarian choices. Food was great. Our table was too dark and the wording on the menu too small. Next time they reprint they need to enlarge and simplify the font so old folks can read! Would go there again for the food.

    What a fabulous experience of ambience and great food and service. We could not have asked for anything better - the guitarist and dim lighting set the mood for exquisite dining. The food was so wonderfully prepared and served. We spent two hours in a relaxed environment with friendly wait staff at ready attention. This has become our favorite place!!

    This was our first visit to the Studio. Nice cozy ambiance, excellent service and fabulous food! The waiters were friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and tended to every detail! The bisque was so scrumptious and you taste all the beautiful flavors swirling together. I had the fish with shrimp on top, mash potatoes and broccolini. So delicious and nice blend of herbs and spices! Nothing but kudos to the Chef!!! Highly recommend!

    Wonderful dining experience overall. The ambiance, live (not loud) live music, service and overall vibe was great. Our main dishes were just a bit off - not terrible in any way just missing a beat. By the presentation of the starters, I'm guessing this is not the norm.

    Everything was excellent. We had a 6:30 reservation and the staff was attentive and very focused on service! The menu offered a nice selection of beef, seafood & vegan options, something for everyone. The taste and presentation of our meals were amazing. We lingered at our table after dinner & we did not feel rushed at all. It was definitely a 10 out of 10. We will be back for sure.

    We had an incredible meal with friends at The Studio. I highly recommend the daily special painters pallette. It is a small fillet in a wine reduction, lollypop lamb chops in an Indian curry sauce and grouper fillet in beurre blanc. The proteins are paired we with the BEST mashed potatoes you will ever taste (yes, butter AND cream) and broccolini. We really enjoy the atmosphere at this restaurant....subtle music and lighting. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant for date nights, holidays and special occasions.

    We do not live on HHI, but visit The Studio to celebrate my husband's birthday. This is the 3rd year and just as wonderful as the first time. We get same thing everytime - salmon with butternut and maple syrup (side of delicious mashed potatoes and young broccoli). Dessert blueberry crumb cake - bottom is all blueberries. Nice quiet evening. Highly recommended.

    The Studio never disappoints us. We had visitors in town who, like us, the husbands are carnivores, and the wives are plant-based eaters. The menu suits both palates with creative and very delicious menu items. We each loved what we ate! Thanks for helping us impress our guests.

    We are vegan, and have dinner at The Studio every time we visit Hilton Head. It is far and away our favorite restaurant in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area. The food is outstanding from soup right through desert, and the quantity of each course is generous. Can’t forget to mention, the service is superb. Don’t miss this dining experience!
