Open table asked the question if it was a special occasion? I said yes, birthday. No one at the restaurant acknowledged the fact it was a birthday. If Open Table and The Studio are not going to communicate, open table should not ask the question.

Everything was fantastic. The Studio has the best Early Bird menu in Hilton Head.

We love the Studio! It is a spot we visit every time we visit the island. In addition, it is a tradition for my wife and I to dine there for Valentines Day for the past 5 years. This year I decided to get something different. In the past I always got the Filet, the same with my wife. This year we both got the Studio Salad which was awesome!!! We both enjoyed it very much. For dinner my wife had the Grouper and I had the Hippie Loaf. Our food was good but we left feeling our meal was very expensive. So I looked on-line at their menu and found that the Grouper was $32 and the Hippie Loaf was $26. We were charged $38 for both meals. I get that Valentines Day is Special and is busy for the restaurants. I recognize there is a cost for the Rose my wife received when she left but we paid $18 more by dining there on Valentine’s Day versus any other day. After adding 6% tax and 20% tip we paid $23 more. Maybe that is the way it has always been and we never noticed because the Filet price is very close to the $38 they were charging. Last year we were even offered a nice coupon to use if we came back within the month, and we took advantage of it. Nothing was offered this year. The food was pretty good, the service is always good and the ambiance is perfect for a romantic evening. I was just disappointed in the way the meals were priced out.

Imteresting art work! As it was restaurant week, a very reasonable price for 3 courses. The lobster spring rolls appetizer was excellent as was the vegan jambalaya!

We took friend who had never been there, confident that it would be good, and it was. Our server was very knowledge about the menu and helpful with choosing wine. Only criticism was there wasn’t enough light to read the menu.

We happened to arrive on Restaurant week. it is obvious that many locals value and admire this restaurant. the chef is creative and the food is fresh and balanced while adding artistry and uniqueness to each dish. It is not overly expensive but it is worthy of drinks with three courses for $100.

The live music really made it a romantic experience. The blueberry crumb cake ala mode was amazing.

This is a great new place we just discovered. Though the menu is not extensive, there is enough variety to cater to wide range of entree preferences. What makes this restaurant stand out is the very creative and innovative preparations and presentation of dishes. Also, serving sizes are appropriate - not huge amounts that go to waste - plus pricing seemed very reasonable to us. All staff are super friendly and helpful, making the overall dining experience pleasurable.

The layout includes two small dining rooms and an outdoor patio, so guests are advised to reserve a table. In addition, the decor is very eclectic featuring original artwork throughout, jewelry for sale at the bar, an artist with easel painting near the front entry, and live music. We found the "bohemian" atmosphere different and fun, though depending on your guests, some may find some of the nude paintings, cozy tables, dim lighting, and random art pieces distracting. We like the idea live music, but wish the entertainer we heard did not sing (was not in tune). However, we will definitely be back to hear the acoustic guitarist and will make The Studio a favorite HHI spot. Enjoy!

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our friend is Vegan and there was lots of choice for her.
The service was courteous, knowledgeable & informative. Just the right amount of attention was given. The food was flavourful and beautiful in presentation. The accompanying singer was talented and did not interfere with conversation.
Overall a most enjoyable evening.

Highly recommend. I'm going to see about taking my men's group there and have recommended it to friends.
