5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We ate at many of the top rated restaurants in Charleston, but this one was the best. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Also had live music.

“Good but overblown and too pricy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Very good food but the atmosphere was just too stuffy and much too expensive. We brought nice clothes just for this reservation, only to find people in jeans and untucked shirts, as well as locals way overdressed. Food was very good but I've had just as good meals elsewhere for half the price.

“Charleston's Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Bourbon cocktails, delicious food, a garden view and live jazz entertainment - the best place to experience all Charleston has to offer! A great place for a romantic dinner.

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

My husband and I spent the long weekend in Charleston. I always read the reviews at TripAdvisor, and made reservations before we came.

We decided to order the Six Course Tasting menu, paired with the basic wines. It was a fabulous meal! The staff was very helpful, eager to please, but not annoying. And a live jazz quartet!

Yes, it is expensive, but not any more so than any large city. And on par with the best!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Yes, it may be expensive but its a memorable meal and worth it. We asked for wine advice and it was fair and obviously less than enthusiastic (perhaps because I was just in the sub-$100 range), I ordered it nonetheless, the wine sommelier came over and said "I can see you don't like it" tasted it, shook his head, took it away and came back with a similar priced and far more excellent choice. In many other places they would not care. A jazz ensemble in the corner made for a sophisticated atmosphere, service was prompt but not rapid and the meal was quite memorable, especially since we are VERY critical of most restaurants. Highly recommended and I would go back without a doubt. Try it and you'll not be disappointed! .
