My wife and I dined here on a recent trip to Charleston and came away very impressed with both the food and service at Charleston Grill. We mixed courses from their Pure, Lush, Cosmopolitan and Southern menus. My wife had Fois Gras followed by Thai fish and I choose octopus salad and then rack of lamb. All of our courses... More

On my recent trip to Charleston, I went to this exceptional restaurant for dinner. This is one of the finest places I have ever eaten. The service was impeccable and the food was superb. I will definitely return.

I went there with my mother for Mother's Day a couple of years ago. This was by far the very best dining experience that I have ever had. The food was beyond amazing. The service was impeccable. The live music was beautifully done. There was a cellist and a violinist playing songs by Pink Floyd, Nirvana, and other rock band,... More

This was probably the finest restaurant we ate at. The atmosphere, service, food was top notch. Everyone loved there food, from the salads to the main course to desert. The wait staff was excellent and the food was cooked perfectly. This place is a must but bring plenty of money.

The Charleston Grill was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Charleston. The ambiance, food and service are impeccable. The jazz combo in the corner was the perfect compliment to the beautiful room. The restaurant to centrally located and easy to find. There is public parking available right around the corner. I can heartily recommend The Charleston Grill.

We were staying in the hotel and reserved in advance. We could only get the 6pm slot, but hoped to change it for later. We stopped by earlier in the day on our way out and were glad that they accommodated us and changed it for 7pm. Little extra time to sightsee and prepare for dinner. We thought the restaurant...

We celebrated my 60th birthday here. It was everything i could have wished for. From the moment we arrived i was treated like royalty and even got free sparkling desert wine served at the end of the meal. Food was exceptional.

After having had dinner yesterday at the Peninsula Grill, the six of us were here this evening. Another great choice with great service and equally good food. Wait staff in Charleston are invariably polite, but here they were a step above, as was the case yesterday. Two examples: one of us wanted a White Lady cocktail, a drink she'd had... More
