Fulton Five is a great treasure, tucked away on a little street just a block off of King. I almost hate to review because Fulton Five is usually free of the tourist throngs and filled with locals. I have been dining here regularly for over a decade and it is always a great meal with excellent service.

We love the ambiance of Fulton Five and are drawn there time and time again, although we have never had a truly outstanding-in-every-way meal there. Once you get past the totally charmless and unwelcoming hostess, the waitstaff can't be beat. They are very professional; they are attentive but not intrusive. It never fails that some of the items will be excellent (like the grouper special), but then something will go terribly wrong (like gritty scallops). We will stay away for awhile, then we'll go back because of the ambiance.

We ate at 6 of the "Best Restaurants" in Charleston, SC - all highly recommended by
friends and newspaper and magazine reviews. Heads above them all is Fulton Five on
Fulton St - just off King Street. We both agreed - we had one of the best meals either
of us had ever had! I wish they would come to Charlottesville, Va - we've got great
restaurants here, but nothing like Fulton Five! Go - you'll love it! PFB - Charlottesville, VA

We returned to Fulton Five on a Saturday night and as expected the food and service were excellent. Three of our party of four had and raved about the Insalta Di Mare, a shrimp, lobster and crab appetizer, and the pasta dishes and the lamb entree were great.

We had been meaning to try FF for awhile and finally did. The food (especially the steak, lamb and fish) was impeccably cooked but a bit pedestrian flavor-wise. Really nothing to write home about, or make me want to return, especially as it is one of the more expensive restaurants in town. The olive oil they serve is really spectacular, however! I had heard some unpleasant things about the service but our waiter was spot on if not terribly friendly. I did notice another waiter at another table being a bit rude, but ours was just right. It's a pretty place in a great location but with so many good restaurants in Charleston now, it would not be in my top list of recommendations for visitors.
