There is a head shop next door. I was trying to sample their ports. Couldn't do it. The smell of the incense from next door was just too much.

The head chef at Starlight (Toby) is amazing and his culinary creations are wonderful! The only caveat is that if he has the night off, the quality of the food can vary. The kitchen uses a lot of locally grown produce and I believe they strive to provide as much organically grown as possible. Atmosphere is lovely and the oyster... More

The food at Starlight parallels what you would get in upscale restaurants serving locally-sourced foods in larger cities. The staff is excellent and accommodating. My only wish is that the food would be more consistent in terms of quality overall and quality/quantity for the price. I absolutely don't mind paying top dollar for good food, but there have been a... More

I really like the dinner menu here, it's interesting and regional. Food is nicely prepared. Relaxed atmosphere. We have been here for brunch as well, again a nice interesting menu. Would love it if they had a bit more gluten free interesting choices.

When you go, try to sit at the bar. Jimmy, the bartender, is a cocktail artisan! If you tell him a few ingredients that you like, he will craft up a drink that you will not forget. Everything is made on site. No mixes or bottled syrups. Watching him is like a free show. And the food is consistently fantastic.... More

Have been here often for lunch and dinner. Pricey for Greenville but you get your money's worth. Fantastic food and service, highly recommend it, especially for special occasions.

I do love Starlight, I think it's the best fine dining in Greenville. Fresh food, and the service is almost always excellent. the prices, for the quality, are wonderful and the selection is reasonably broad, although sometimes I wish they had something else on the menu (though I admittedly do not know exactly what .... sometimes their offerings just don't...

We ate here the night of homecoming so as you can imagine it was pretty empty. That didn't stop them from providing excellent service or very decent food. We started with the tapas which though a little uneven (the eggplant was a little undercooked, the sauce a little too close to pasta sauce, but the fresh arugula, salami and tomato... More

Great food! Absolutely recommend the fried oysters. Everything tastes fresh and delicious. **BEWARE** When spliting the bill, even between two people, they atuomatically add gratuity (16%?). Not only is this done automatically, but they do not inform you that this will be happenning. I imagine most people don't think to look at the reciept they are signing because they have... More
