Due to Covid, The Studio is only serving dinner outdoors. The menu has not changed much over the years, but has something for everyone. My favorite is the combination platter with small portions of lamb chops, grouper & crab and filet mignon. Service is always...top notch. Be sure to try this restaurant when things return to normal and they have a guitar player in the dining room named, Armand Demille. There are lots of vegan dishes on the menu.More

My wife and I found this wonderful restaurant over 3 years ago while traveling. The studio is truly one of HHI’s hidden secrets. The Pho Spring Rolls are one of our favorites along with the Buffalo Cauliflower! The tofu and scallops are great choices as...well. Great menus with many vegetarian choices. They also have outdoor dining in a quiet lush setting. The food is always consistent and flavorful. Great presentation with outstanding food quality. Thank you to all the employees of the Studio! We will be back again soon!More

We've had such good food from The Studio! The vegan selection is amazing - best mac n' cheese I've had. My husband has enjoyed the steaks and the seafood (grouper was divine!). Lovely staff - always smiling and friendly.

As cases of Covid-19 were spiking in Hilton Head, we were wary of dining out. It was our wedding anniversary, so we decided to limit our exposure by having drinks and appetizer on the patio and take our entrees to-go. I love that they include...vegan options on the menu. That's what brought us in, but the rest of the menu is varied with something to please everyone. The presentation was lovely, especially our cocktails. These owners are doing a FANTASTIC JOB of creating a safe and lovely dining experience. From the moment we arrived, I could see the care they took to keep diners safe. (1) the front door was propped open and therefore touch-free (2) the hostess/owner was wearing a mask (3) we were given disposable menus and personal hand sanitizer packets (4) the lone server was wearing a face shield (5) the server did not clear tables (6) and the person who did clear, carefully sanitized the table, chairs, and placed a clean tablecloth afterwards. During this time of limited access, reservations are a MUST. We'll be returning to Hilton Head in early Autumn and will definitely make a reservation at The Studio.More

This restaurant serves a large variety of beautifully prepared continental cuisine in a beautiful and romantic setting. The service is friendly and professional. My favorite dish is the Maple Leaf duck breast, but there are many other delicious options as well. The escargot appetizer is...uniquely prepared, with a generous portion of escargots in sweet potato nests accompanied by a wonderful Pernod sauce. You must try it!More

For what we paid-average for sure!! No one was thrilled. It was just ok. We had my daughter’s college graduation celebration here (9 people). I think we were the only ones there that we saw and one of the biggest rains we’d ever seen unrelated...to a hurricane had just come through. Our plans had changed a bit due to this and we had her cake in our car (we normally would have delivered it to the party destination), so, I brought it in and we asked them to place it in a refrigerator. It was not a sheet cake. A round cake. A one layer round cake. The young woman we spoke to behaved as if this was a big deal. Well, we will see if he has room with quite an attitude. We found the server ok but everyone else we encountered was just -well-snotty! We were so disappointed. We would never return considering it’s about $40-$45 person. Yeah. So sad we chose this restaurant for our special evening.More

The studio has a relatively unique menu much of which is vegan with a clear Indian influence. Nonetheless, enough variety to please almost any palate. Very nice blend of flavors with some very unique and pleasant nuances. Very nicely presented. Great service, and in a...very warm and cozy atmosphere. Live music from a very talented musician. Unusual for us was the music was at a very pleasing volume to be heard but not assaulted. The musician put a wonderful cap on what was already a delightful dining experience. Most of the art work in the "studio style" dining room we were told was completed by the owners of the restaurant. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary and different from most other fine dining establishments, you might find this a very pleasant experience. We certainly did!More

We had a great dining experience at the Studio in Hilton Head. The restaurant was very quaint and sort of romantic. Our meal was delicious. I’d definitely dine there again.

Our first time at this HHI iconic restaurant, but definitely not the last. Wonderful, personalized, gracious service, excellent food and lovely ambiance. Guitar music was the perfect volume...so enjoyable and unobtrusive. Thank you!

We normally say "resort casual", but however you are comfortable is fine. Friday and Saturday nights tend to be "dressier" than weeknights.
