Never noisy. Very good food and wide menu. Prices are fair. Friendly staff. Told the waiter it was my 75th birthday and was surprised that they didn't offer a free desert or a thank you for picking our place to celebrate your birthday. But I love the place and plan to return many times in the future.

This is one of our favorite places in a city with a lot of good restaurants. It seems to be much more a local choice, not so well known to tourists. Food is creative and well presented, and our service has always been friendly and reliable. Ask for a window table well in advance if you want the best seating.

From the Insulata Di Funghi to the duck breast and the special sea bass, every spoon and fork full of food was delightful. Dave, our server was not only congenial, but also quite knowledgeable about wine pairings and the menu. Wonderful experience!

I wanted to surprise my wife for her birthday with a nice, romantic meal. We had wanted to visit Fulton Five for a long time as it consistently wins "most romantic restaurant" in the Charleston City Paper. So I made the reservation at 8pm on a Friday night expecting to have one of the best meals in Charleston. Upon arriving... More

My son, whom I was bringing to school at C of C, wanted to have Italian for dinner and a quick search found Fulton Five. It's small (intimate, cozy but not overly formal), right off of King Street, and the food was great. We will be back. Laurie

We have been here several times over the past fifteen years, but after our most recent visit (this month) decided to come more often. In the heart of downtown Charleston, it is still a bit off the beaten path. It is a small space and pretty tightly packed, but still feels friendly and warm. The food is excellent, which is... More

My husband and I went to Fulton Five on the recommendation of someone we met in passing. We walked in with no reservations but they took us at the bar with no problem. The bartender made great suggestions and was very friendly. The filet was AMAZING and my husband had the grouper special which he loved. Great atmosphere, Fantastic food,... More

Really good food and portions are large. The smaller portions are more than enough. I do not think it is as romantic is it is portrayed, but do not let that you stopping from eating here. The manager is great and quick to respond. I would highly recommend eating here.
