I was at a special event that was catered by them. Everything was wonderful. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fresh, local ingredients and the staff were very pleasant.

This is a special restaurant with almost the most general name possible. The themes are Asian and French, but there is also local catch, produce, and beer. Some of my companions were disappointed by the starchy buns presented with a soy dipping sauce, although I though they were a nice touch. My "naked" fish of grilled stripped bass was excellent...

If you enjoy the unexpected, check out this pleasant restaurant on King Street. We could not decide on which Dim Sum to choose, so we tried 'em all. A very tasty choice. The flounder dumpling was not at all what we expected, but that was okay because it was very tasty. Live music was nice, though a tad loud.

We started with a signature drink at the bar which was great! Fish has wonderful ambiance. The service was very good. Our grilled artichoke appetizer was just okay. The food - both of us ordered fish - was good but not great.

Amazing food, and equally amazing service. I love that they have a selection of small plates, my husband and I had five different ones and they were all spectacular, and very different from what you usually see in seafood restaurants.

Our server knew how to interpret our beer and wine requests. Perfect. The menus were quite unique from what we've seen: held in a heavy metal cover. My husband and I loved the portion sizes from the regular dinners - just perfect. You will leave totally satisfied both because of quantity and quality. Important for anyone who doesn't like feeling... More

Try the tuna tartare with creme fraiche. We tried 5 different small plates and they were all excellent. The place was packed but the service was still enthusiastic, informative and engaging. Sit at the bar and try the mimosa. Don't be afraid to ask for gluten-free variations they happily accommodated and the results were excellent.

Wonderful,tastey, fish...of course! Nice atmosphere. Would like to see more "green-type" salads though. Good wine list. Trout dish was exceptional. Interesting fried bread. Yes you could tell the restaurant had a French flavor. Nice friendly service but a "tad" slow. I would go there again and again. Nice change to the high market restaurants classically found in Charleston. I'm hooked.
