I don't often say "Wow" at restaurants these days, but I did here. Just returned from a week in Hilton Head with my wife and we ate at several restaurants. Lots of good "stuff", but this one was kind of the cream. Appetizers, main course, service, wine - all good. Their wine list is very good and they had 25% off until 7pm when we were there - don't know if they do it all the time. We had a shrimp and calamari that was awesome. The gave us a free appetizer because they just wanted to - said they were disappointed our other appetizer took so long (we didn't think it did?). Fried brussel sprout leaves, sweet potato cubes, parsnip puree and apple compote with a vinigarette dressing - it was to die for - Wow. Seak was great and wife's scallops/risotto great too. Our server was friendly, full of info, and knowledgeable on the wine list! Go there!

A wonderful place for an early fall Wednesday, which turned out to be Ladies Night. Very busy, but food (after 9 pm) was excellent and reasonably priced. Love small plate offerings. I had the crab cakes, one friend had a special lobster offering, and another had a "pizzetta". Mine, including Pellegrino and 20%+ tip (for attentive and friendly service) came to $20. Did I mention the stylish decor?

We spent a pleasant evening on the patio the night they were celebrating their 4th anniversary, so there were deals on food and drinks. You can get full entrees, but we stuck with the small plates and pizzettas for the fun and variety of sharing lots of different things. Everything was topnotch, and service was very good.

Great pick. Our first time in Hilton Head and we picked a winner.
Not only was there ambiance, but the food was delish and the prices were very reasonable. We ate in the back dining room. You walk through this black and red lit tunnel to a black room with chandeliers and padded booths. All the waiters dressed in black. And, our Waiter, Tony was attentive. Next trip back, Wise Guys is on our list!

Oue waitress had little to no knowledge of menu items. We waited over an hour for our dinners and when we finally could catch our waitress's eye to inquire about our food, she turned an ran away. When the waitress finally returned she said " I had nothing to tell you, so I didn't come over". An apology or update would have been appropriate! Then a female hostess or manager came over and offered us dessert on the house to make amends for the excessive wait. Waitress took order from two of us, ignored the other two, and ran off again. After another wait, she returned and our husbands asked if they could order dessert. She looked surprised and said "I didn't know you wanted any"--maybe asking the customer would be helpful to her. I will admit most of the food was very enjoyable once we finally got it, especially the side of risotto. The desserts were exceptional!
