Wonderful surprise

This was across the street from the hotel, and we visited on impulse (& without reservations) the evening of our check-in, as we didn't feel like going through an ordeal to find a spot to dine. Turned out to be a terrific choice! We dined in the courtyard, had a delightful table for two; our... read more

A former dental office, the place is very small but has a lot to offer. Drew, our bartender, is a class act and very enjoyable to talk to and be served by. Bar and dining areas are small, but the food & beverage is absolutely excellent. A lot of locals make this place a stop on their way home and... More

Delicious fresh food prepared in with recipes from throughout Europe and the mid-East. Eclectic and fresh. Great fish, salads, pastas and more. Whether you are looking for an appetizer, an entree, a dessert or the whole shebang, this place is for you. Love the outside seating as well. Service is great and I never feel hurried. Enjoy drinks at the... More

Amazing food, great friendly service. Location is excellent as is the food that comes with it, great wine list. The only thing I may feel like saying, a few of the delightful plates we order were spicy, which doesn't bother me at all, I assume is how it's in Charleston, but if you are not accustomed to spicy food you...

I'm not sure where the negativity from the other reviews came from but we had an excellent dinner with a nice wine, delicious food and wonderful service. I had the Gnocchi pillows and added the poached lobster - so tender and light it was wonderful! My spouse had the Bolognese that was the best we ever had -shows that Philadelphia... More

We had visitors from out of town, but it was a holiday weekend and we were having problems finding a place that would accomodate 3 couples. They could and we booked. We were running late and appreciated the call to confirm our reservation before cancelling -- 2-thumbs up! But, we were seated in an upstairs room and were told the... More

Small, quaint little restaurant. Great location. Society St. is near the Downtown Markets. The cuisine is American, Greek, Italian, Seafood, Vegan,Vegetarian. So, whatever your palate desires you should be able to find on the menu, even though it is limited. Starters/salads will be around $12+. They serve fish, veal, lamb, rabbit, pasta, rib eye steak, limited number of sides. There... More

I don't write these bad reviews often-any restaurant can have an occasional problem. But when two entrées are flawed there is a real problem. First entrée was pumpkin gnocchi. It was bland and tasteless and lacked sauce. However the dish had one dominate flavor-saltiness. I returned it and ordered the dish my wife had ordered. She had a delicious fettuccine... More

I love coming here, hence why I give it 4 stars. The service from wait staff is excellent and the food is sooo good. The fresh fish is always the way to go. What ever the special chefs choice, go with it. My only complaint the long hair blonde hostess. She is always touching her hair and tossing it with... More

I'd first like to address some of the reviews I've read that the place is dingy and rundown. It's got character! It looks like it's been painted to create the facade that it's
