My husband made reservations at this restaurant a MONTH before we had dinner here. He specifically requested that we have a romantic table since this was my birthday, a special occasion. We got there a few minutes before our reservation, had to wait at the bar and then they tried to put us at a table smack beside the bar.... More

We were looking forward to a lovely anniversary dinner here. We were sadly unhospitably refused an empty table for two. With a small dining room, there was no reason the table we requested (empty) we could not have. ??? why not? good luck folks

This is not exactly a typical review. My friend and I were in a little trouble, he had locked his keys in his car. Our phones were both below 10% and we were unsure of what to do. We were looking for a locksmith when we got lost and came upon this restaurant. We told the manager, i believe his... More

Ambiance.. beautiful and so was the service, but the savory dishes were too sweet. The mushroom bisque was sweet. The lobster with pasta had a sweet taste too. Even the veal chop had a balsamic sauce that was just too sweet. Dishes mentioned were ordered by different diners, and we all and the same opinion, Savory food should not all... More

From start to finish, this was one of the best meals we ever had in a restaurant. Salads were awesome, entrees were equally as good, the wine list was first class & dessert just finished the evening perfectly. I will seek out the restaurant the next time in Charleston.

In a city full of amazing restaurants Fulton Five is up there. Situated just off bustling King Street, this lovely Italian restaurant is definitely worth a visit. We arrived without a reservation but we're lucky enough to be offered a table in half an hour's time. We had drinks at the bar while waiting - amazing wine list and good... More

This was our second dining experience at Fulton Five this spring. On our first occasion we had a large table of nine and we felt as if we were the only table in the restaurant. Our host and servers were attentive and funny and our meals were each better than the next. This past weekend we brought our friends who... More

What a treat. Tucked away on a side street is a gem of a place. Not your red sauce, lasagna, veal or chicken parmesan kind of place. A neat old building creates an intimate dining experience. Appetizer soup and salads were great, especially the seafood salad. The veal chop was just great, a bone in 16 oz chop, flavorful, presented... More
