G&M can be very crowded but that is part of the charm. Food and service are both terrific. We have not eaten there for dinner, but at lunch it is wonderful and they have take out.

I just love this place. Easy, priced well, and consistently fresh and delicious. I brought family here and they loved it too. Wonderful service, unpretentious, and something for everyone on the menu. The gazpacho was fabulous, especially on a steamy June afternoon.

This small, cute bistro looks like it was once a part of a house, with the sealed fireplace, built in bookcases, and ornate moldings. You sit at counter height tables and often with other diners nearby. Then take a look at their fairly extensive menu with many vegetarian options. We had the featured wine (a rose) and a cheese plate to start with. Then we had some "goat bread" which is goat cheese toasted on a baguette. Then some gazpacho and salad. And for dessert-butterscotch pound cake. Everything was great. The gazpacho was very authentic, and tasted like some I've had in Spain. We did think the cake was a little dry. It would have been great with actual butterscotch on top.

The service was great, we thought. It was a Saturday night and not too crowded. I could see it being difficult if it was more crowded.

We arrived in Charleston late in the evening. We had just enough time for a quick walk around before dark. We asked a guy walking his dog (figured he was local and we were right!) for a suggestion for someplace we could grab a bite. He recommended this place as it was close. It is a charming little place. It is small and it would be claustrophobic if it had been packed. Others have commented on the service. We sat at the bar and our server was so helpful. She offered menu suggestions and fixed me sparkling wine with raspberry. We got the sandwich/soup combo and really enjoyed it. My husband really liked the lentil soup. This is the kind of place we wish we had in our neighborhood!

An excellent source for a picnic lunch. Regular menu items were packed to go and made a fabulous picnic at the Battery. Even the gazpacho traveled perfectly. Lovely!
