Excellent Food and Service

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...

On a recent visit to Charleston, we had read reviews of Fulton Five, good and bad, but I always check to see how many reviews the writers have. Chances are, and I don't know why this is, the people with the fewest reviews have the not so flattering ones. This seems to be the case with Fulton Five. It was... More

My boyfriend and I went to Fulton Five at my request after a recommendation and seeing all the romantic restaurant hype around town. It could not have been more wrong abd us disappointed with our date night. First, there is no valet or parking, which is strange for charleston currently. That's fine, but warn people. We got there on time... More

David Shaw took excellent care of us....he made some amazing recommendations and we chose some, but, the 16 oz bone in veal chop is where I landed....great food, excellent service. I rank this restaurant and its service number one in Charleston.....see you very soon. My hubby had the filet and he claims best mashed potatoes ever and said the steak... More

My husband & I live in Charleston, & we along with 3 adult family members from out of town, had dinner at Fulton Five in early May. Years ago we went to Fulton Five 3 or 4 times a yr. with friends who considered it their favorite restaurant. But it slipped off our "go to" list, primarily due to premium... More

Fulton Five was recommended to us by a staff member at our hotel. We had an amazing evening. First off we did not have reservations but found two seats at the bar. Alicia was the hostess and bartender. She did a wonderful job, wanted to get us a table but we were enjoying our time and decided to have dinner... More

We opted for Fulton Five as it had been rated a 'top romantic restaurant', as well as it being literally less than 100 yards from our hotel. The food was good, but the overall atmosphere was somewhat cramped and noisy. The dining area is fairly small, but is packed with avid customers. They are certainly going for the 'authentic' Italian... More
