This south island restaurant is tucked in an office park with windows facing Pope Ave. The restaurant decor is wrapped around a functional artist studio theme. The food is prepared mostly by the owner with attention to detail and quality ingredients. The small dinning room puts tables fairly close together and others conversations are unavoidable. There is live music during several evenings during the week. If you are looking for a very unique setting with great food, this is a place you will want to enjoy.

Once again, The Studio did not disappoint. It is consistently delicious with great service. Wonderful wine list, great food, live music and an artist. If I can find anything at all negative to say it might be that the menu doesn’t ever vary but on the other hand it is ALWAYS fantastic!
Oh, make sure you sit in the main dining area.

Based on the reviews, I couldn't wait to try this place. This is a great idea. A musician, an artist at work, and a chef--all very talented and friendly. This idea should be patented!
I had the escargot and mahi, mahi-delicious (expensive)--normally we share, but I wasn't sure I wanted to switch...the Mr. had the bay scallops (heavenly) and the crab cake. The crab cake looked suspiciously like my homemade salmon burger--but It was lighter, and crab flavored. Desserts were ok.
But this was well enjoyed.
Thank you!

Hilton Head does not have elegant restaurants for a "night out" BUT Studio is as good as it gets. The combination of congenial, welcoming owners, nice art, pleasant music, attentive service, quiet for conversation, and an excellent menu make for a very pleasant evening.
If you are looking for beach casual and sandals, there are other places. This is a real restaurant.

We've gone to this restaurant on our annual HHI visit for a couple of years now, and just love it. This year it was the night of the US election, and thankfully, the white supremist s...heads next to us didn't completely ruin the evening! The food is absolutely wonderful, frest and artistically prepared. The service is perfect, and the surroundings pleasant. We will continue to go there and strongly recommend it!
