The Peninsula Grill Champagne Bar is an intimate jewel box space that offers several outstanding champagnes by the glass and a delicious bar menu. The lush Peninsula Grill Courtyard is one of the Charleston's true hidden gems and the most romantic al fresco dining setting in the city. Peninsula Grill also offers private dining.

The short walk through the courtyard to the entry of Peninsula Grill gets your senses ready for an unbelievable experience. I wish the weather would have been warm enough to enjoy dinning outdoors, but the indoor atmosphere was just as lovely. The moment we walked in we had fabulous service - the pull out my chair & place the napkin on my lap type of service. While we waited for our entrées, we were offered a tasty bisque sample. The Seared New York Strip au Poivre, although great, was not the best steak I've ever had. If you enjoy seafood, those may be better options to have. Now, the Banana "Panna Cotta" Pudding was beyond anything I could have imagined. Plus, it's almost too pretty to eat.

Not only did the food exceed my expectations, but the service was amazing! Our waiter was Mark and he made the experience even more fantastic with his personality and professionalism. I was truly impressed. This is also a fine dining restaurant that doesn't skimp on portion size! I got the roasted duck and my husband got the New York steak. And I recommend both. This chef knows what he's doing! And the wine selection was fantastic to boot!

I plan to take my mom back soon!

The entrance off the street is a path through a garden with outdoor table with candles. The waitstaff was incredible with our server, Chris, being very helpful. I had the Carolina trout that was excellent. Over all a great restaurant.

We ate here tonight. From start to finish our service from Mark was outstanding. There was a great variety to the menu both for beverages and food and the food and wine we chose were delicious. I don't even care for Brussels sprouts but their take on this vegetable made it quite enjoyable. And yes, we saved room for the coconut cake and it was eyes roll back in your head good.

Thank you for your wonderful review of your experience at Peninsula Grill. Chef Dailey has an amazing talent for making everything taste good, even Brussels Sprouts. The relationships that Chef has created with our local farmers has a great deal to do with the quality and flavor of the ingredients that we use. Our focus is on preparing the best ingredients from around the globe and showcase their flavors through our preparation and presentation. When combined with impeccable service from Mark and the rest of our professional staff an evening to remember is created. We look forward to your next visit to Peninsula Grill.
