My daughter and I ate at 116 last night. I have been there often but moved to Charleston. I always enjoy this restaurant and especially like the specials. The main menu really has not changed much and always has really good salads and pizzas. We ordered 2 specials...a dolmas plate with stuffed grape leaves, peppers, tomatoes, olives and the tomato...

We tried this restaurant for the first time for Mother's Day Brunch. The menu sounded great and I had heard nothing but good reviews. We waited for 30 minutes for a table inside a small but quaint restaurant. The food took a while due to the crowd, which was expected, but when it arrived, it was less than good. I... More

Delightful! From the moment we walked in. Kindly greeted by each employee we encountered. Recommendations were on point. Great wine selection. Say outside for the evening with a great downtown Columbbia view. Will definitely be back. A++ :)

Love this place! Great food, reasonable prices and quaint atmosphere. On pretty days its nice to sit outside. Their menu changes regularly and offers a variety for all taste buds. It is laid back causal dining - people wear anything from shorts to evening attire. On busy nights the service can be a bit slow and the place gets a... More

We eat here for dinner once or twice a month and have never been disappointed. The menu changes fairly often and the specials are always special. The small plates are great for sharing and so are the larger plates. There is a great selection of wines and the staff is always helpful. The clientele is eclectic and interesting. You can... More

This is such a quaint and delicious little spot. Perfect for brunch. The coffee is fantastic as are their specials. I can't help but get the stratas. Really haven't had a bad experience here. It is small so beware a little wait, but never gets out of control. Their dinner and drink menus look great as well. Oh and don't... More

Stopped in yesterday ( Sunday ) for the first time. It is small & casual & a bit noisy but know that going in. I had the shrimp & grits and it was fantastic - only had it one time before - in Charleston at a "renowned restaurant" and it was not as delicious or as flavorful as the one... More

We enjoyed our dinner outing to 116. Its small,cozy and quiet even though it was packed on a Saturday evening. We started off with a pair of small plates: The cheese plate which had some really good cheeses(caveman bleu/manchego and a cranberry cheddar I believe) with fresh fruit. Also a Cuban shrimp small plate - neither of us cared for... More

Locally owned and run by great people. OK we live here in Columbia and drove past this place 100s of times? Why? Because the name “116 Espresso and wine bar” threw us; we were not sure it was a restaurant but rest assured it is a hidden bistro sandwiched in between several other places, look sharp so you don’t miss...
