I took my fiancee here for his birthday after a recommendation from a co-worker. The atmosphere was very nice, the service was great but the food was just okay. I ordered the Charleston Street lump crab dish which is their "signature dish". Not only was it really bland, but the cream sauce was so runny it was the consistency of water. I didn't eat the rice because it was also bland and cold. Nor did I eat the vegatables because they were way too crunchy and not worth the extra calories. My fiancee ordered the filet wrapped in bacon. Although it was flavorful and cooked to his liking, the combination of the fat on the filet and the demi glaze made it taste so much like pot roast which was really odd. On a positive note, I had the chocolate torte which was the highlight of the meal and unbelievably delicious. I just couldn't understand why they put a dollop of sherbet (which reminded me more of unsweetened water ice) on top of it. I could see Chef Ramsey having a field day with that one. I think this really deserves a 3 star but because the prices were so out of line with the quality of our entrees I'm giving it 2.
