“Gimme some dim sum!”

I do not love Chinese food. But, call yourself French Asian and its d'lish! Get the flounder. Too yummy! On the downside, my cocktail had about 3 sips to the bottom:(-

“Setting a High Bar for the Others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our first dinner while visiting Charleston & it set the bar high! I had advised this was our first time away as a couple since becoming parents & my birthday week....we were seated at an intimate corner table & greeted by a smiling and gracious Sarah. Everyone seemed genuinely happy we were there. The Clams and Fromage Du Jour started the evening out delectably. Sarah offered her opinion for a good bottle of white wine to our taste and -BONUS- it was 1/2 price bottle Monday! The menu is fresh and plentiful-from small to large plates there is something for everyone. For dinner we enjoyed Bouillabaisse & Scallops, leaving us full and satisfied. Although we passed on dessert, Sarah & the Manager brought a lit candle S'more Brulee - OMG,YUM!!

“Loved this restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

We loved the food, service, atmosphere and location. I definitely recommend that you try this restaurant. My party had 4 different dishes (scallops, tilefish, naked fish and the bass special) and all were delicious. The table next to us had appetizers that looked great, too.

“Creative, delicious and surprising in every bite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

From the dim sum appetizers (suspend what you think are typical Chinese dim sum) to the tile fish and the bouillabaisse to the dim sum dessert (!), everything was of high quality, creatively executed and just plain ol' delicious. Check out their internet site before you go--they had a half price wine sale ($90 or less) and half price dim sum appetizers when were were there mid-week.
