It's an annual event for us, celebrating our anniversary at the Charleston. We usually start with a glass of champagne. This year as they no longer serve Veuve Cliquot by the glass we took the recommendation of the bartender. He poured us each a glass of Deutz NV Brut. It was very good with a hint of green apple but... More

Every aspect of the Charleston experience was excellent. The food and service were fantastic both at the bar and throughout dinner. The atmosphere was conducive to both romance and business. I had noted details of a special occasion in my OpenTable reservation and several accommodations were made by the restaurant to escalate the experience even beyond an excellent baseline. Of... More

The food was excellent, the service was perfect. Had a four course meal that would be hard to pick out which dish was better than the last. This establishment is one of the finest meals of my life. Oh yea ... the wine list is stunning! If you love food, go to Baltimore and eat here.

We drove from DC to meet our daughter in Baltimore, taking her to Charleston to celebrate her birthday. We had read about Charleston and had been looking for the opportunity to go there. Overall, the restaurant was quite good, but I did not feel it quite lived up to it's reputation. Upon reflection, my primary issue was with a single... More

If you choose to dine at Charleston make sure the prices are not prohibitive to your budget. Meaning, it is hard to put a price on such fine meals like the Charleston provides. The staff left no detail out as we were greeted promptly and 3 staff members wished my wife a Happy Birthday within the first 5 minutes of... More

We had talked about visiting for a few years. I had four courses, my wife had three. My lobster soup, fried oysters, foie gras were great. My duck was a little under cooked and tough. My wife had corn chowder , fillet mignon ,and a special salad. Loved them all but there was nothing else on the menu she could... More

We were hosted to this quite expensive dinner and were delighted to be able to experience the restaurant. The service is smooth and sophisticated without being stuffy. The menu is Prix Fixe, 3-4-5-6 courses plus included dessert, amuse bouche and gourmandise. The service team is so smooth they will guide you through the menu. Just choose how many items you... More
