This was the first time that we dined at the Charleston Grill. It was highly rated and we expected excellence. We were not disappointed. Everything was excellent from our greeting when we arrived to the sincere thank you from the host when we left. The service was top notch. The staff was friendly, skilled and sincere.

Went with the family and decided on the six course tasting menu for $90. The food was excellent, nothing short of five star. The cornbread, crab cake, seared foie gras and rack of lamb were the highlights, perfectly cooked and complimented. The live pianist and violinist took requests and made the night even more enjoyable. Delicious.

Went here for our anniversary and not only was the food spectacular, they went above and beyond to ensure we had a special evening. This included a congratulatory card, a sampling of special menu items, and an assortment of dessert treats that were all amazing and included a chocolate "card" saying happy anniversary. Service was exceptional. Can't praise it enough!

This restaurant is well worth the visit and money. We had outstanding service and food.....bar non this was the best food we ate over the 5 nights we were in Charleston. You'll need to dress up a little bit, but oh so worth it.

We were treated to an elegant evening at the Charleston Grill. The atmosphere is very refined. We started with drinks at the bar and were impressed with Justin. He also offered us a small bite from the kitchen. Nicole was our server for dinner and Justin requested a banquette table for us facing the jazz trio, which was nice. We... More

The service and preparation of the food is excellent. The servers know the food and can provide excellent information. They do not 'hover' at the table but seem to know when to fill eater glasses, etc and do so without interrupting your conversation. The jazz in the back ground makes for an enjoyable after dinner drink or desert or both.
