We went to Jasmine Porch for an anniversary celebration, and it was a good choice for us. The Sanctuary atmosphere is exceptional and Jasmine Porch certainly complements the hotel's five star rating. The restaurant offers inside and outside dining, a quiet atmosphere, and outstanding views from all areas. The service was top notch. Food was good and served in a... More

The Jasmine Porch has been a favorite for many years. It has changed over the years and I do miss the chef from a few years ago but some staples remain great. The She Crab soup is a favorite as are the shrimp & grits (this was where I learned that not all grits are created equal). The tasting menu... More

Our server was friendly, took our order and said bread would be coming shortly. We waited over 15 minutes for our bread basket, which was placed on our table 30 seconds before our dinner. A pet peeve of mine. My steak was delivered medium rare even through I ordered medium. Our server took my steak back and promised another one... More

The service was fabulous, consistent with the rest of The Sanctuary property. The food was good. We enjoyed breakfast much more than dinner. Breakfast food we found to be great; the dinner food was fine… just as expensive as other options in the hotel but not the same quality. Given that it was a holiday weekend, we were impressed how...

Jasmine porch is a tradition with our every other year vacation at Kiawah island. Food was good as always with yellowfin tuna for me and wreck fish for my wife. Kids had buffet. Service excellent with great honey thyme butter. Definitely recommend.

It took quite a bit of driving time to get there from Charleston since the GPS kept losing its signal. However, once seated and asked if we wanted the complimentary Mimosa's, it was all worth it. We went for the Sunday Jazz brunch. The jazz was one man playing a guitar. In my entire life, I have never tasted such... More

The food, service, atmosphere, and convenience makes the Jasmine Porch a must. Just another example of excellence that is The Sanctuary.

Been here since the Sanctuary opened. Started with an abundance of brunch offerings when it first opened. Price was high but reasonable for the quality and quantity. Last two years the quality has been maintained but certainly the number of brunch stations has decreased. Try the bourbon French toast, the shrimp and oysters. The cheeses are uninventive, the desserts homemade,... More

I don't know what others are complaining about but, we were thoroughly impressed. We sat on the porch for dinner over looking the pool p, it was a beautiful evening. We ordered fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits, since we were sharing, they split our orders in the kitchen and even gave us a little more. The bread basket... More

The Jasmine Porch does make a good shrimp and grits, and their french toast is good. Unfortunately, that's where it ends. We dined there four times, and the food was unremarkable beyond those dishes.
