Excellent all around

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner. We made a reservation a few weeks in advance, knowing we would be in town. Our waiter, David, was very attentive. He knew the wine list and dishes extensively. We could not have been happier for an evening out. I highly recommend this restaurant. Whether... read more

This is a very tiny restaurant and we knew that so know you will be seated close to others. Luckily a very loud table next to us left shortly after we arrived so the close proximity was not a problem. We do like restaurants like this so we were ok with the small space we had. After being seated we... More

My husband and I planned a weekend in Charleston with this restaurant reserved for fine dining based on the reviews. The ambiance was just what we wanted, service "OK". However the food was a huge dissappointment. The mushroom soup was so seasoned with sage it was overpowering. Our entres were overseasoned with spices that either eliminated the flavor of the...

Our dinner here was very good. You can tell the chef takes his job seriously. Our waiter was on top of things too, and we didn't wait for anything. I had the Insalata di fungi salad that was outstanding. The place is fairly small - not too small as to seem like a sardine can but more on the cozy,... More

Years ago my husband and I regularly visited Fulton Five on special occasions - anniversaries, birthdays, holidays. With all the new restaurants popping up all over Charleston recently, we had forgotten about this little gem. We have visited several times recently and loved every visit. This restaurant is as fantastic as it ever has been. The small dining room is... More

We were welcomed by Alicia like we were old friends! David, our waiter, saw to is making sure all was to our liking! The... More

The food is always excellent as well as the service. Quiet location with a great atmosphere. We always ask for the Same Waiter--David Shaw. One of the few local spots left in Charleston.

My first time to this amazing restaurant was on a recent Friday evening. I was looking for a well placed restaurant before I attended a show in downtown Charleston. I waited too late in the week for a later reservation but took an early one for myself and my lady. I am so glad we went there. The food selection... More

We happened across this tiny restaurant and got in without a reservation (lucky). It filled up quickly and we could see why. Food was delicious, service friendly and attentive even though we were eating at the bar. Salad was very nice and we shared some food, so quantity was good too. I actually wrote down what we ate so I... More

This was our last night in Charleston and we were looking for something a bit different than the past few nights. This place did not disappoint. It is very small and charming, with wait staff that have been with the restaurant many years. Our service was good and after starting a little slow, turned into a good experience. We started...
