Everything about Peninsula Grill is on point. The food is excellent! The staff is friendly and very helpful. This was the second time I've had dinner at Peninsula Grill and it is consistently wonderful. The oysters I had were the best I've ever eaten. The decor and ambience is also spectacular. After dinner, we moved to the bar for drinks... More

We had dinner this week at the Peninsula Grill with a party of six. The wait staff could not have been more attentive and pleasant; and the atmosphere is just lovely. I would love to have dinner in the courtyard since it is the prettiest part of the restaurant! The most outstanding part of our dinner was an heirloom tomato/peach... More

Peninsula Grill is upscale in every way. The service is perfect, the food sublime and the ambiance elegant. Courtyard facing, it is a must do.

Our meal, ceviche, and duck, and snapper was well prepared, composed, and delicious. Our server was a true professional. This was a true fine dining experience. The rating accurately reflects the quality you will experience.

Definitely a special occasion spot but Peninsula Grill did not disappoint. Be forewarned they do have a dress code but it isn't consistently enforced - saw many sport coats and one t-shirt/shorts combo on the men there. Most ladies had dresses or dress pants on. On to the food - the charcuterie tray and tomato/peach salad we started with were... More

Came her to celebrate my 30th wedding anniversary, and the place did not disappoint. Everything is beautiful, inside and out. Yes, it is expensive to eat her. The service is excellent. Cocktails were expensive but good. Appetizers were excellent, a must have is Traditional Ceviche. The grilled salmon was excellent, and there is nothing better to end the night with... More

We made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday at Peninsula Grill several weeks in advance (recommended). When we arrived, a perfect table for two by the window with a view of the courtyard awaited us. The menu which changes with the season offered several items that were tempting. We decided we were in the mood for seafood. My husband had... More

My husband and I chose to spend an extended anniversary weekend in Charleston. We chose Peninsula Grill as one of our dinner nights. We had reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server came up right away and introduced herself and provided us with menus. As we were trying to decide on a bottle of wine, she showed up... More
