“Perfect from start to finish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

We decided to have a special dinner on our last night in Charleston. We had walked by Eli's Table several times during our four day trip and thought it looked promising. The menu tempted us both so we called for a reservation. We were not disappointed.
The people who work at the restaurant were all warm and welcoming. Our server, Jasmine could not have been more intuitive. She knew when to be present and when to back away and give us some time. One of my pet peeves has always been feeling rushed in nice dining establishments.We told Jasmine we weren't in a hurry and that we hoped to have a drink and relax before we ordered and that's exactly what happened. The food was outstanding. The tender and flavorful braised lamb was close to falling off the bone. The salmon was equally delicious and the pecan pie with bourbon whipped cream was heavenly. I could go on but can sum it up quickly by saying, if you're in Charleston, make it a point to go to Eli's Table.

“Lunch on the patio. Joel was awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I had lunch on a bit of a cool day at Eli's but they have a charming patio with heaters! There is a fountain and a lovely settling with trees that made for a very comfortable atmosphere.
The host, Joel, that seated me was superb. Every detail was perfect with his attention. Food was outstanding. I had the smoked salmon bacon lettuce sandwich on ciabatta with a dill aioli sauce and local tea with honey. Couldn't have asked for a better plCe to eat lunch.

“BEST breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

My husband and I passed the large crowd at Taste on Sunday and walked the extra block to Eli's for breakfast - and we are SO glad that we did! The restaurant is adorable and we were seated quickly. The food portions are ridiculous - my egg, bacon and cheese breakfast biscuit looked like an omelet on a biscuit and my husband's praline french toast was decadent. It didn't even need syrup! We ordered way too much food but were able to get a really good sampling of many of the breakfast items and they were all delicious! Definitely skip the crowds and walk to Eli's - you will be SO glad you did!

“Great for a drink”

We just went for a quick before dinner drink - didn't eat anything but everyone who worked there was really friendly and upbeat. We enjoyed ourselves.
