“Phenomenal Birthday Dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2015 NEW

Brought my best friend here for her birthday, one of the best meals and service I've ever had. My friend couldn't stop gushing about the scallops, she agreed, BEST meal ever. Don't forget the coconut cake, it's to die for.

“Coconut cake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015 NEW

We didn't have reservations so weren't able to have a meal here. However, the coconut cake had been recommended to us so we got one 'to go'. Very yummy cake.

“Just lovely....enough for the price?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015 NEW

We dined in the very charming courtyard, on a beautiful evening and with fine, friendly service. My husband pronounced his appetizer (scallops, English peas, mushrooms) "one of the best, ever." I liked my chilled split pea soup with mint. He had tuna; I had bourbon pork chop with garlicky spinach and mashed sweet potato. It was all very good. It was not remarkable. We enjoyed our $50 bottle of wine, although we had to search for it, hidden among the $100 - $1400 offerings. The service here was very nice and not a bit stuffy. This was a very nice meal in a lovely setting. I have no fault to find except that I have had more memorable meals for less money...did not try the "famous" coconut cake, which doesn't appeal to me. I would rate this restaurant more highly for setting than for food - take your pick!

“Perfect Anniversary Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2015 NEW

This is rated #3 in Charleston and we know why. The food was top quality as well as the dining. Must try the lobster three-way, the sea scallops and the coconut cake. We will definitely dine here again next time we are in town.

“Top Two Charleston Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2015 NEW

Excellent service and atmosphere. Busiess casual dress was appropriate. Service was knowledgable but not intrusive. Romantic location. Superb wine list. The famous coconut cake is truly not to be missed.
