    Great service and the food was delish. We were a little surprised that for an early reservation they were out of their chicken dish. Their menu was marked for Gf/vegan but the server knowing the actual ingredients would be helpful if someone is limited from other allergens.

    The ambience and service were fine. The food was not good. The ribeye steak was so grizzly that you could not cut it. They were kind and replaced it with the filet. It wasn’t much better, but it could be cut.

    The Studio is a wonderful upscale restaurant right here on Hilton Head Island. The menu, food and service is incomparable. The owners are welcoming and engaging. A lovely art gallery shares the restaurant space in this cozy location. If you are lucky enough to witness one of the local artists creating a masterpiece while you are dining, that’s an added bonus! I would highly recommend a visit to The Studio.

    We had very much enjoyed dining here in the past. Last evening was very disappointing. The service was subpar- having to ask multiple times for water and bread. The food was also disappointing - halibut was overcooked and dry, grouper was just average.

    A small hidden gem on Hilton Head. Seafood steaks and vegan dishes set in an art filled dining room with some outdoor patio seating. The staff is attentive and not overbearing. Food is prepared creatively and is excellent.

    The food we had was very creatively prepared. We thoroughly enjoyed our-seared diver scallops and cioppino with mahi-mahi. There is a good wine list and our servers were excellent. It was fun to walk around the restaurant with a glass of wine admiring the artwork. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

    This was our first visit, the ambiance is unusual and unlike any other place we have dined in the area. That being said, the food was tremendous, and our server was welcoming, thoughtful and well versed in all of the menu items. We can highly recommend the grilled romaine, the salmon entree, the cioppino and the crème caramel. It was a great experience.

    The food was fabulous and the service was great. The menu had a few selections to select from which was very satisfactory considering it was a holiday menu Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere was most calming. I strongly recommend this restaurant. If you’re in a romantic mood, this would be my first choice.

    Our evening was just lovely. Being Vegan eating out can be challenging in is area. They have at least 5 different options to choose from. My husband who is not Vegan had many options. I had the jack fruit wrapped in rice paper which was amazing and very large portion. Hubby had the Caesar salad followed by the scallops. Our dessert was the vegan chocolate square. Will be returning. Just sorry I didn’t find this restaurant sooner❤️
