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.
Been going to this restaurant every year that I vacation in Hilton Head. Love it. Food is delicious and the service impeccable. Great ambiance.
Delicious lamb and filet! Tuscan soup was wonderful and the German torte with the chocolate sorbet was outstanding!
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
Food was best we had on island. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgable. Would definitely return.
Food and service were excellent. Will definitely be going back again.
We had a wonderful time
The food, ambiance, service and vibe was perfect
Next time might buy a piece of art
The vegan food was so delicious and big portions! I will definitely recommend and will be back on my next visit to Hilton Head! This chef truly has a gift and is passionate!
I love The Studio. It has a vegan menu that is fantastic. Service and food is always outstanding. I highly recommend it for everyday dining to special occasions!
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.
Tuna appetizer, filet Mignon, salad and crab onion soup, all very good
We enjoyed a delicious dinner outdoors on the adorable patio. The filet and lobster was perfect! Don’t leave without having the blueberry crumble cake with ice cream. One of the best desserts I have ever tasted. The service was impeccable.
Food is very creative and made with fresh local ingredients. And an art show adds another dimension to the dining experience. Highly recommended!!
Excellent, service was friendly and the food was outstanding
Just outstanding every time we go. Great food, great service and great atmosphere!
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.
Excellent food and service, outdoor seating nicely spaced.
Great escargot and mushroom appetizer. Salad yum and the flounder, mini filet and lamb chops were delicious.
Like the bar selections
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.
Had to eat outside in 40 degree weather. Steak was so tough I could barely eat it. The scallops was under cooked but was tasty. The bread pudding was outstanding. The service very good.
Great food, friendly staff, and a fun time. We ate outside, and it was cool, but the owners had a fire and heaters there to make it comfortable. Highly recommend the Studio. We have been going there for years!
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!
We enjoyed sitting out on the festively lit patio with soft guitar music, and heaters. Service was fantastic. Each course was delicious and so was the wine. We explored the art displays on the way out. A memorable experience.
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!!!
It was a nice experience until it began raining. We were seated outside. No one seemed to care until it really started coming down and we were offered a table under the awning.
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!
The food was amazing. I’m a vegetarian and my boyfriend is a carnivore. We both had plenty of amazing options from starters to dessert. Loved the ambiance inside and out and the service was fantastic. We will be back for sure!
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.
Food is always so delicious. Perfect options for vegan abs carnivore. The patio setting is so pretty. Friendly attentive staff and beautiful art to look at!
Personally attentive owner and staff, exceptional menu including best vegan options on the island, highly Covid conscious with a relaxing al fresco dining environment.
Lovely, small and very romantic, consistently excellent, chef/owner and wife is hostess. Love to go when Armand playing keyboard. Our go to for special occasions.
Food and service was amazing, live music (on fri and sat evenings) was entertaining! Definitely going back!!
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.
Perfect menu for vegans and meat-eaters alike. Exquisite food in taste and presentation. Wonderful service. Our favorite place on the island.
We are regular diners at the restaurant and we love the food, the wait staff, the art, and the owners.
