“Not bad, not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

I love the Sanctuary Hotel. The Jasmine Porch was perfectly pleasant, service was very good, but I was not tremendously impressed with the value aspect or the decor. Again, not bad at all...just not exactly what I was hoping for from such a splendid hotel. They want to be upscale without really going there and they want to be accessible without seeming generic. I am a little torn on this review and I am definitely not warning anyone away...just keep your expectations in check. The food offerings are totally acceptable.

“Could be a Disney Hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Food was good but nothing spectacular. Service was excellent. But like some other reviewers, screaming kids abounded. Not the atmosphere for a $400+ dinner.

“Unbelievable food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Was blown away by a 7 course wine paired meal prepared by Chef Lauren and Chef Andrew. My husband and I spent 4 nights in the Charleston area and this was by far better than Husk and Fig. Only High Cotton came close to the meal we had at Jasmine Porch. Our server was OT who made the whole experience come together. Our thanks to everyone who participated in making this meal so memorable....you know who you are! We will definitely be back!

“Excellent food, enjoyable dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

The food, service, and atmosphere are excellent. It is a little pricey as compared to restaurants just off the island. Live instrumentalist on a Saturday night is a nice touch. The proximity allows for a nice walk on the beach.

“5 Star Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

We resided in a villa and drove to the Sanctuary for dinner. The service began with valets who were professional and extended into restaurant. The hostess and wait staff were attentive and provided constant but not nagging service. We enjoyed the sampling of breads. The appetizer we chose , chickpea salad, was excellent. Our meals, shrimp and grits and catch of the day scallops, were culinary delights as well. My meal--scallops was specially made to meet my dietary restrictions. Dessert, pecan pie, was ordinary, but the overall experience was well worth the $ .
