“Outstanding”
Reviewed May 16, 2010

First visit to this restaurant and it was perfect in every way. My wife and I were totally pleased with everything. We are looking forward to returning soon on our next visit. If you are looking for small, quaint and wonderful, this is the place.

“Favorite Restaurant On Our Vacation”
Reviewed May 9, 2010

My wife and I agreed that this was our favorite restaurant on our 2 week trip to Asheville, Charleston and Savannah. It is tucked away on a side street and looks quaint from the outside. There is free parking available across the street. We were meet warmly and seated promptly. Our server greeted us once we were settled and took our drink order. Over our drinks he described the evening's specials. The food was excellent and very savory. The chief knows what he is doing that's for sure. Our server who we think was a part owner was very knowledge about the wine list and made several recommendations to us in our price range. A very relaxing meal with great service and food, what more could one ask for. Well it could be just a tad quieter and that would be our only negative comment. Wish we had a Fulton Five here on the Oregon Coast!!

“Overrated”
Reviewed March 30, 2010

We went here to celebrate my birthday. Had reservations, got dressed up.The food was good but not exceptional. However the service was only adequate. We asked to move to one of 3 other available tables set up for 2 and while they finally let us move the mood certainly changed. All week long we experienced only very friendly people throughout the Charleston area. At our hotel, other restaurants, shops, tours etc. This was by far the most UNfriendly place. This is NOT an inexpensive restaurant and we both felt that the service should be of higher quality. Would not return here as there are so many other wonderful places to go. We were told that a jacket was required but other diners we there in t shirts and jeans. Also were told that it was a romantic restaurant- can't say that I would agree with this. It is a very small restaurant and the tables are very close together. It is on a side street away alot of foot traffic. But romantic ? No. Perhaps it was the frigid service.

“A Hidden Gem”
Reviewed March 19, 2010

My wife and I had dinner at Fulton Five this week and had a wonderful experience. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. We ended up being the last ones to leave the restaurant and chatted with the staff as they cleaned up and prepared for the next day. My wife had seafood pasta which was fresh and tasty. I had the pasta, with speck and peas and a very light cream sauce. Flavorful but not overpowering. Nice intimate restaurant and a surprise find for us.

“Over-rated”
Reviewed January 13, 2010

Have been several times and have had a decent meal each time, nothing special. However the last time I was there our party of three arrived after 9:00 on a not so busy night without reservations for dessert and coffee and were totally ignored by the hostess. Initially telling us that it would take her a few minutes to seat us while there were plenty of tables and an empty bar. After waiting 15 minutes without any other acknowledgement and no other customers arriving, we left and will not to return for dessert or dinner. There are plenty of better and more friendly Italian restaurants in town.
