Outstanding food, wine and service!

I have dined at Charleston numerous times in the past and always leave feeling the same way, I wish I would visit more often. This visit was a special occasion, my wife's 50th birthday with 11 people with a set menu and wine pairings. As usual the team a Charleston never fails to impress and... read more

This is my new favorite restaurant in Baltimore. Charleston is hands down amazing in every aspect. Since my words cannot accurately do justice and accurately depict the high quality, subtle flavors, and seemingly intricate preparation of each dish here, I'll save myself the embarrassment. What you do need to know is that every item on Charleston's menu is fabulous. You... More

Outstanding meal with great attention to detail. Truly high cuisine but at a fairly high price (I think worth it for special occasions). Setting is quite nice - better for business or formal celebration of sorts, but not overly pompous. Definitely recommend for a special night out.

I've had several wonderful meals here, but a recent event celebrating a friend's birthday was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Chef Wolfe prepared a beautiful menu for our friend. The food was spectacular and the service top notch. The sommelier understands the wine list and the food and can create magical pairings. For... More

This is one of a couple of restaurants owned by a husband and wife chef family. The food, atmosphere and service is all one could expect. We were there for a family celebration.

When you visit Charm City and you want to "dine" at the best of the best, Charleston is the perfect destination. Cuisine, ambiance, service, and knowledgeable wine assistance all combine to create a superb dining experience.

The drinks are very good, the food great and the dessert was nice, but a bit overpriced. They have valet parking

This is the restaurant I look forward to going to on my birthday. It's tops in everything--food, ambiance, service, attention to detail. To start with, the bread is wonderful, and it only gets better from there. Some of the dishes I look forward to are the shrimp and grits, roasted red beet salad, pan roasted duck, lamb tenderloin.

Especially enjoyed the sweetbreads with Rosé Champagne. Lobster bisque was also a great choice. Thank you Cindy.

Dinner in a private room with 20 attendees typically is memorable for the dried out entrees due to the restaurant trying to time the delivery. Not so at Charleston. Food was truly amazing and the servers were attentive but unobtrusive. Wine selection was perfect. Loved the food, from the appetizers to the soup to the entrees and the desserts. No... More
