This small restaurant has excellent food and a good variety including vegetarian options. My compliments to the amazing chef! It’s one of my favorite restaurants on the island.

Awesome, a yearly tradition for my husband and I. We never miss a date night on our vacation and book a reservation as soon as our resort plans are made. I absolutely love every dish. They are amazing with gluten free and vegan options too.

Our first time here and it was excellent. The restaurant boasts of art work which is shown throughout the diining area.
The staff is friendly and engaging, attending to your table but never overbearing.
We started with the escargot which was excellent and enough for 2 people.
Entrees were the salmon and the paella, both of which were generous portions and also excellent.
Completing our meal was the blueberry crumb cake, and leave room for that because it was delicious.
We can't wait to go back especially since there were so many great menu choices we didn't know which to choose.
One point, make a reservation since seating is limited. You won't be disappointed 1

Lots of great vegan options. I do wish they had more than 1 vegan dessert. As I am not a fan of fruit and chocolate. Husband really enjoyed his non vegan dinner. Service was outstanding. Will definitely go back on our next trip.

Dinner with visiting guests. I had the vegan meatloaf with the vegan mac & cheese even though I’m not vegan and it was delicious.
My guest had the paella Which was also cooked to perfection and very tasty. We sat outdoors which is the rules for the restaurant right now and although there was some car noise the music was very soft and pleasant. There’s a reason why this restaurant has been in business for 17 years.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal as we usually do at the Studio. We started with escargot and crab and vidalia onion bisque. Very plentiful portions and excellently prepared. Our entrees were Duck and Seafood Paella. Again ample portions and delicious. We skipped dessert though they are always good and enjoyed our wine selections too. A great meal.

It would have been a 5 star experience - except nowhere on open table does it say there is no indoor seating right now. In fact, it specifically asks “standard or outdoor” and we chose standard which I assumed would be indoor. But we were seated outdoors as they do not have ANY indoor seating at the moment. Not only did it take away from the whole studio experience....but we weren’t expecting or prepared to sit in 60 degree weather outside eating. They have a little fire but not enough to provide heat to all the tables. So although the food and service were great, we were pretty miserable...and I have two small kids who were also miserable. They need to take away the “standard” choice on open table so that outdoor is the only option and people are prepared for this.

This was our first visit to The Studio. It is nestled in the trees in sight of hwy 278. Only outdoor dining is available because of the pandemic. The Studio called before hand to be sure we were aware and comfortable with this arrangement. I appreciate the notification and diligence. The patio is warmed with blankets for diners, heaters, and a wood-burning chimenea. The Studio is a unique dining experience. We ordered cocktails, vodka tonic and What's Up Doc (a spicy tequila, carrot juice, and more), a Bloody Mary's cousin served in a flute. It was interesting but I only ordered one. The soup du jour, a pad tai curry with pineapple and vegetables was unique and tasty. Entrees, tuna and salmon, were delicious. There are very interesting menu choices. We concluded our dining experience with the chocolate molten cake ala mode. Service was excellent. We will return to fully experience The Studio with musical entertainment and art.

We really enjoyed our dinner at The Studio! My Husband had a seafood special and I had Diver Scallops that were prepared in what I'd call a Mediterranean Style. Interesting paintings inside. Because of Covid-19, dining seating was outdoors but they had enough space heaters to keep diners cozy! Would definitely be worth repeating.

Due to Covid, the restaurant is only seating outside on their beautiful patio. It was a bit chilly but none the less, the meal did not disappoint. This is the only establishment (as far as we know) that serves buffalo cauliflower on the island it is to die for! Steak and grouper were cooked perfectly and the crab soup was excellent! Will definitely be returning soon!

Always a joy to come to the Studio. The staff welcomes us and engages us in discussions about food and about life. The food was wonderful. The only concern on this visit was the temperature on the patio. That was our problem, and we will choose warmer temps in the future...and we will be back...again and again!!!

The indoor dining has been closed since March due to Covid. It is a very intimate restaurant so currently seating is only outside. The food was amazing and the service was extraordinary. It is independently owned and I was even told that all of their dishes were "prepared with love". There are numerous vegetarian options on the menu, but they have seafood, chicken, duck and steaks. Great little hidden gem. Don't skip dessert!

My husband had the paella. He said there was scant seafood other than the fish- not much of other seafood and too much of the sausage. The flavor was good, but he had wanted the dish to be primarily seafood.

I had the grilled romaine salad with vegan dressing and vegan parmesan, and it was so delicious. It came with a vegan corn muffin that I loved. I also had the ahi tuna with a seaweed salad and wasabi sauce. The tuna was delicious.

Best dinner and ambiance I have ever experienced in Hilton Head. It is nice to be able to have a gourmet vegan or veg meal in such an atmosphere along with folks who do eat meat and fish and can get first class meals for themselves as well. The live entertainment was a bonus as was the opportunity to see local art displayed.
