Lovely restaurant on the ground floor of The Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah island.

Service is competent and efficient, but rather cold and formal as if they are trying too hard to be a five-star resort.

Menu is well thought out and varied. The food was good, but portions were definitely on the small side. Prices are high - at the very top end of Charleston prices - but with out the panache and sublime quality of food available at downtown Charleston's top end restaurants.

Prices for wine by the bottle are outrageous!

If staying on Kiawah it is an O.K. choice, but if not, you can do much better at the downtown establishments.

For two salads, two cups of soup and one iced tea, we spent nearly 50 dollars. The food was okay, and just okay. The service was okay, and just okay. The staff were very pleasant and addressed us as if we were at a world class resort. But the experience was not on par with the setting. Just okay.

We had a lovely meal on the outdoor patio at Jasmine Porch. Pricey, as all Kiawah on-island restaurants are. But delicious, with a beautiful setting and terrific service.

We are by no way experts in southern food, but after eating here bar had been raised. The fried green tomatoes were delicious. I had their tasting menu which included the shrimp and grits and the steak which were both excellent. The shrimp and grits gravy had just the perfect amount of spice.
We also had breakfast (buffet)-which is a bit pricey, but the selection and food was very good.
