Fulton Five has become a regular stop for us during our visits to Charleston. The food and service are both top notch. I don't quite understand the "most romantic restaurant" awards. From the outside, it does look quaint and romantic. Inside it is certainly nothing special as to atmosphere. Go for the food and service. Seating is tight, but not... More

Carol and I ate here on Thursday evening (11/20) after receiving a recommendation from our hotel consierge. The food and service were okay but did not KNOCK OUR SOCKS OFF!!! Fred was attentive but seems overwork for a small restaurant. My spinach salad was very good!! The wine was good, we liked the location because it was a short walk... More

My husband and I stopped into Fulton Five Italian Restaurant for a late dinner after catching a show at the Sottile Theater. It's about .4 miles, 7 min. walk, from the theater. Since we arrived at about 9:45 PM, we just ordered some dishes to share. We ordered the Pettine (pan-seared jumbo scallops with spinach and tortellini), cheesecake for dessert... More

The wife and I spent an enjoyable night at the Fulton five for her birthday. I ordered the Antipasto Spoleto appetizer which was Mozzarella and Tomato Wrapped in Romaine. I absolute loved this dish I ordered the entree portion of Orecchiette Aragosta which is a shell pasta dish with Poached Lobster, Crab, in Shellfish Cream sauce. This is a very... More

This is my third visit to Fulton Five and I seem to always order my favorites - the mushroom salad and the shrimp pasta - because they are so tasty! On a Friday night it was somewhat loud, but i have eaten here on a weekday night and it's much quieter (especially if eating early). - Laurie M.

My wife and I had not been to Fulton Five in several years, but had always enjoyed it. My wife wanted to go there for her birthday, so I made reservations. The food and service simply could not have been better! The soup, the salad, and the pasta were all simply delicious. We will definitely return, and we won't wait... More

First time visiting the charming City of Charleston, S.C. A local vendor recommended this reataurant. Arrived at 5:10 p.m. Manager curtly stated a 5:30 p.m opening. Returned at 5:35 p.m. First question he asked was ... did we have a reservation... even though we there 30 minutes before. Manager said space is available; but needed the table for 7:00 p.m....

To start off on a positive note, the food was delicious...and the only reason I'll give Fulton 5 another try. Our server was terrible...didn't get our orders right and couldn't get our tickets right to save his precious life. Now the atmosphere was entirely too hot and too loud which may have been part of the server's issues. The overly... More
