The food was not of we expect. The winer schnitzel was too grease and the fried green tomatoes were not cook as the southern style. Services were good but unfortunately no one of our 11 members of the family did not like the food and...never we will be back.More

This place is charming and the welcoming. The food was very good but the service was even better. The staff was knowledgeable and on the evening that we were there (New Year's Eve) they offered food and wine pairings that were spot on. Recommended!

This restaurant was one of the few within walking distance of our hotel . The manager that greeted us at the front door almost had us turn around due to his unfriendliness. We were early and asked if we could have a seat at the...bar . It was full so we sat down at a table and he yelled over to us that there was no see ice there. Again , just about ready to leave but without any other options we stayed. Thank goodness our waitress Karina was amazing ! Food and service were good …they need somebody new to greet people !More

Very nice atmosphere and location. We had an issue with one of the entrees arriving undercooked and cold. This was corrected immediately. The wait staff and manager were very apologetic and gracious in resolving the problem. The food was very good when corrected. I appreciate...a business that cares about the customer experience. So many restaurants seem to be going through the motions.More

Definitely not the place for business travelers or locals after work. Been trying to manage the off hours and finally after living in palmetto dunes made a trip in. I haven’t experienced such a unwelcome. I understand the short staff... but everywhere around town actually...anywhere else is grateful for business not hostile towards those coming in. The Hostess “B” was beyond rude and wanted me out the door as soon as I walked in. She said the entire night they have to serve 74 guests and only had 12 servers. As a restaurant manager and owner that would be a slow night especially for fine dinning service. The parking lot is half full and I was told I could not wait for a seat at the bar until I asked for her name. This isn’t a place I refer any client friend or acquaintance. Sad... been trying to come for 2 months just to be showed out before even getting a understanding.More

Says readers choice award or something on website. 2 people and 1 child will only cost you close to $300. Here is my primary issue here. The prime rib was average. I cook it at home better. The broccoli was cold and the roasted potatoes...were definitely cooked days prior not to mention tasteless. Since i couldn eat the broccoli or potatoes i was stuck with a meat dinner. They also have the audacity to charge $18 for 2 frozen mini sliders on the kid menu. ($15 for slider $3 for drink). That came with a half hamdful of McDonald’s looking fries. If you are such a high end restaurant getting $44 for filet and $44 for prime rib then at least serve the kids something decent for your $18 price tag i felt taken advantage of but this seems to be the fortey around hilton head when it comes to restaurants. Serve any slop and the tourists will come this place wouldnt last 2 weeks in atlanta. Service not good plates not cleared and steak knives provided after meal arrives.More

We had dinner gear after it was highly recommended to us. It was pretty pricey but we figured that was fine for a great meal. Meh - food was good but not at a level to match the prices charged. I am hard pressed to...recommend it just given the prices and that the food did not blow us away for what they charged. 4 stars though still since that equates to the level of food.More
