We told the concierge at our hotel that we had booked here and she was less than enthusiastic. We should have listened to her. The outside of the restaurant looked very pretty but the interior was very ordinary. We arrived early and the hostess was most unwelcoming. My starter of Insalata di Mare was excellent but my wife's main of... More

Small, intimate Northern Italian cuisine, Fulton Five is a hidden gem, just off of King Street in downtown Charleston. Excellent food in a warm atmosphere. It's where the locals go for an enjoyable evening out.

My first visit to Fulton Five was to celebrate my birthday with my family, and I could not have selected a better restaurant for this special occasion. It was cozy, lots of atmosphere, delicious food and exceptional service from our waiter, Dave. He was right there refilling beverages, bread (which was delicious), and anything else that needed attention without us... More

I felt jammed in. The service was excellent. The food was good but not great. Nothing special about the ambiance. Seemed expensive. The drinks were generous. We had a nice evening. Spent $220 for two dinners and four drinks.

I try to seek out a great dining experience when in Charleston! Many restaurants are just impossible to get a reservation when I call and request a table! I have been very fortunate that Fulton Five is able to accommodate me when in Downtown! The food has always been consistent and of exceptional quality! The menu is very creative and... More

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
