Fulton Five was a true experience, the building itself is beautiful and tucked away enough to feel like your own secret place. The hostess made us feel very welcome upon our arrival. The ambiance was elegant but comfortable. The only minor drawback is that the bar area should be more separate from the dinning area because it was too loud... More

This place is tucked into a side street off King and finding it is part of this city's charm. There are so many out of the way places in Charleston but this place is truly a find! It's small so call ahead for a reservation, we parked in the Queen Street parking garage and it was just a few blocks... More

This was our first visit to Fulton Five and it was incredible. Just disappointed we didn't know about it before. It will definitely be a go-to for future trips to Charleston. Cozy, intimate atmosphere without feeling "stuffy." Wait staff was knowledgeable and personable. My husband and I shared the mussels appetizer. Good portion size and delicious. My shrimp pasta was...

If the cozy and romantic atmosphere doesn't pull you in, then the delicious menu definitely will! We got the seasonal bruschetta to start and it was divine. I got the lobster pasta and my husband got the lamb and sausage pasta in marsala. Both were so unique but also some of the best pasta we have ever had. This is... More

We have come to Charleston every year for the past 9 years & just discovered this place! Fulton Five is a romantic, quaint, exceptional restaurant. Celebrating our 13th anniversary sans (4)kids, this was a wonderful experience. The food was wonderful. Get the Pettine! Holy cow. The soup of the day was a creamy corn/cream based with lump crab meat, so... More

After living in Charleston for 8 years, Fulton Five has become is clearly and consistently one of the top restaurants in the low country. Romantic atmosphere, phenomenal food selection and expansive wine list to pair with. Our favorite server, Alisha ensures each meal is crafted to be a individually memorable experience. This restaurant should be your first call for reservations!... More

Inadvertently we came across this restaurant while strolling around this beautiful city. Fortunately we were able to get a reservation for that evening. Everything about this restaurant was outstanding! Loved the ambiance,service,selected dishes, etc. Recommended dishes would include bruschetta,arugula salad,pasta dishes, and duck. What we liked especially was that you could order half portions of the pasta dishes. Especially great... More

Great for couples visiting Charleston. Small restaurant with very knowledgable staff. Be sure to make reservations because it fills up quick.

One of our favorite places to dine in charleston. Perhaps this receptionist on duty at 6:40pm on Saturday, 31 may, needs to be properly trained. I heard her say,"why do people have to call on Saturday for reservations?" Also, I was not put on hold while I heard her discussing the menu with someone. Someone should show her how to... More

On our trip we started at the Gin Joint then to the Vendue Inn and finished with a later dinner at Fulton Five. This is very easy to find, about a 10 min walk from almost anywhere along the King Street corridor. The atmosphere is very pleasant and kind of upscale casual. No tee shirts and no jacket required.
