We were in Charleston for a long weekend and stayed at Charleston Place Hotel. I made a reservation at Charleston Grill prior to our trip based on reviews from Trip Advisor and Open Table. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the hotel so it was very convenient for us. In short, the recommendations are well justified! This is a fantastic restaurant with an extensive menu separated into 4 areas - Cosmopolitan, Southern, Pure and Lush. Since we had appetizers on the club level of Charleston Place, we opted for entrees and a side at Charleston Grill. I had the kurobuta pork chop which was excellent while my wife had the seared flounder and shrimp which was fantastic (both off the Southern menu section). We also shared the potato gratin side (from the Lush menu section) which was very tasty. They have an extensive comprehensive wine list available. Cocktails were excellent. There was an excellent jazz band playing. The service was fantastic! It was pricey but well worth it. Charleston Grill and FIG were our 2 favorite restaurants in Charleston.

We ate here recently and the food and service were perfect. The staff were friendly and attentive, without being pushy. The food was amazing. I had the fillet and my husband had the rack of lamb. Both were cooked exactly as ordered and were delicious. Nice jazz group playing live added to our overall enjoyment. Would definitely go back. If there are just two of you, ask for one of the big comfy leather sofas that sit two where you sit next to each other and both face out. Like the old time booths you used to see in legendary chop houses. They looked really comfy and offered lots of privacy.

We enjoyed our evening at the Charleston Grill, the menu is very interesting and takes some studying to make a decision on your choices for dinner. I do not have a big appetite and was happy to be able to choose two appetizers and have room for dessert. The food was well presented and the flavors were varied and delicious.

The atmosphere, Service and background music were outstanding. The food was just fair, portions small and expensive.

Had a lovely meal at the Charleston Grill. The location challenges the special possibilities of the experience. The menu range and wine list were both terrific, food well executed, some creativity but a little tortured and our particular wait staff person was not having a good night. We have been to CG before and the experience was excellent. They have an outstanding reputation which I am sure is well deserved. We certainly will return but they may drop off our list is if the indifferent service is repeated.
