“My new Favorite Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 NEW

The food is superb, and the service is 5*. The scallops were perfect and the chocolate desert was great. Another diner at our table ordered banana pudding, which I don't particularly care for but WOW! Delicious and Beautiful. All in our party raved about their dinner. Can't wait to go back Every time I visit Charleston.

“Save room for the coconut cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 NEW

We were part of a large group for our dinning experience and ate in a private room. The dinner selections were diverse and we both had the salmon entree. The fish was perfectly cooked and the sauce topping added a delightful taste to the fish. However, the best part of the meal was the highly touted coconut cake. This desert lives up to its reputation and even non-coconut cake eaters devoured the desert.

“Elegant Dining for Special Occasions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 NEW

A bit pricey but worth every $$$. Unique dinner preparations that rival NYC type of cuisine. Outstanding service and presentation. Our perfect place for special birthdays and anniversaries. Note: we travel from Hilton Head to enjoy this restaurant. Desserts are heavenly, but after a wholesome entrée, should be shared. This establishment deserves a jacket for the gentlemen and cocktail attire for the ladies.

“Expectations were exceeded.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

I dined there last night and my guest agreed with me that this was one of the absolute best experiences we've had in a restaurant. I had heard about Peninsula Grill for years & decided to finally get a reservation to see for myself if the hype was deserved. Was it ever! The food was delicious & the courses paced perfectly. The sommelier Dennis was very helpful and the manager Eric stopped by unsolicited to check on us. The service was pitch-perfect & anchored by Deliah-she knew what she was doing & had many entertaining insights on growing up in Charleston. We will be back!

“Very Pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

Food was excellent. My wife and I had the Crusted Grouper. Done to perfection. Atmosphere was pleasant. Did not know men need to wear a collared shirt. Was dressed very nicely, especially my wife but had to dine in the area where they serve cocktails, which was okay with us. More privacy. Would go back again.
