Always Outstanding!!!!

We have been celebrating special occasions here for the last 5 years and it is always a dining pleasure. The entres on the menu have remained about the same except for the daily specials. Usually there are two and a special soup. The chef here is Charleston's best in my opinion. Love the wait... read more

Like so many others, we love dining out in Charleston, and are always in search of that next great restaurant to wow us with their ambiance, service and chef's extraordinary culinary skills. With Fulton Five named the most romantic restaurant in the city for 17 years running, we knew we wanted to save this experience for a special occasion, and... More

With all the great restaurants in Charleston Fulton 5 is still one of the best. Its a small intimate place with great service (Dave/Kryssy), delicious Italiian cuisine and a cool wine list. I highly suggest F5!! Can't wait to get back.

Over the years you get attached to certain restaurants and Fulton Five is one of them, if get the opportunity try this place and if they have pesto gnocchi on the menu you better get it, they don't keep it that long. If you to don't order it, shame on you.

No visit to Charleston would be complete without a visit to Fulton Five! Was able to get a reservation over New Years weekend! Restaurant was very busy but staff always treats guests very well from the moment you walk in the door! Greeted immediately by our waiter who took our drink order and returned shortly! While enjoying our cocktails, our... More

Well this was an unexpected treat during our stay in Charleston. We stumbled upon the restaurant on Jan.1 and although the place was very busy, we were able to secure two of the six or so bar seats. Alicia was behind the bar.She was fantastic. Between seating people, making drinks, and taking food orders she never missed a beat, always... More

Went to Fulton Five for New Years Eve. The food was good but there are better restaurants in Charleston. Overpriced New Years Menu. The worst part was that our waiter had no personality.

We have been dining at Fulton Five since it opened and it never disappoints. We lived a year in northern Italy and much of what you find at Fulton Five is greatly reminiscent of there. Fine food and excellent service always seem to prevail.

Delicious homemade pasta and great service. A very romantic venue with limited seating but not to be missed.
