My wife and I have eaten at this restaurant several times, and have been impressed with the quality of the service and the food. And with a free parking lot across the street, how could you go wrong. Easy to locate in downtown (pardon - uptown (?) ) Greenville in what appears to be an old storefront. Lots of light,... More

This is the best proper restaurant in Greenville, and we're lucky to have it. I split a bunch of tapas and small plates with friends tonight, and everything was sophisticated, fresh, interesting, well-prepared, and delicious. Bravo.

Had not been for a while and then had dinners at the Starlight twice about a week apart. First meal I had veal piccata: I trusted Toby (or Chef Tobias if you prefer) to not overpower with lemon as most US restaurants do. I was correct. Then last Wednesday took a visiting scientist with two of my colleagues there. Our... More

I absolutely love Starlight Cafe! It is my second favorite place to eat in Greenville and that's only because they are rather pricey. We only go on special occasions but, you definitely get what you pay for!

We ate here with two other couples for a get-together. The environment could have not been better. It's a fancy enough restaurant to know you are somewhere nice with good food but not pretentious as these more expensive restaurants can be some times. The wait staff was friendly and accommodating. The FOOD was all delicious. My wife got shrimp &... More

I've always loved the food at Starlight, especially the burgers. Friendly atmosphere and great service, even on busy days. I do wish they had more choices.

My girlfriend and I went here yesterday on a date. She ordered the duck breast and I ordered the NY strip. They were both so delicious. It's a bit pricey but the food was worth it for sure.

Went for Sunday brunch and not full. Waitress initially came to table for order and didn't return for over 30 mins. Food took 45 mins. No excuse for delay. Food just ok and small in size for price, no doggie bags here. Would not go back.

Umm... what shall I say... Well, I have to say that when we walked in (reservation at 8:30) and were seated immediately, but up next to the window. When we were seated we looked out side and noticed on the window a smashed bug so we had our waitress bring something to clean the window off. Once we received our... More
