Fantastic. One of the best meals we have had anywhere. Steaks perfect medium rare. Live jazz too!
Absolutely amazing service all around. From the host at the front door, to the servers, to the management. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The food (ribeyes, potato gratin, cocktails/win, vanilla bean creme brûlée) was incredible. My boyfriend and I agreed it was the best restaurant we’ve ever been to.
This was probably the best meal and service in 20 years. We are grateful for the opportunity to have a meal here.
The foie gras appetizer was delicious, but my entree (the sturgeon) was not as flavorful as I would have expected. My sister ordered the filet and my mother ordered the scallops. Both of their dishes were better than mine, but we all agreed that it was our least favorite meal in Charleston. The decor is beautiful, but the atmosphere was pretty stuffy.
Food was great. The crab cake flavor was incredible, although the center was cold. Otherwise-the lamb my husband ordered was perfect and my scallops were delicious! We would definitely come here again!
Impecible service. Food was amazing...we tried the octopus, scallops, ahi tuna, sturgeon and scalloped potatoes. Everything was spot on including the live jazz band with standup bass.
Great ambiance, and amazing decor. The music was outstanding, not too hungry when we got there; however, when the waiter explained the menu to us... STARVING!!
I’ll give it a 5⭐️
Celebrated my husbands 50th birthday. What an amazing night! We chose the pairing menu with the high end red wines. All I can say is wow wow wow!!! The food was absolutely perfect, delectable and fresh! The wines they paired were brilliant!!! Our wait staff Adam and Barbie were wonderful!! Sommelier was so friendly knowledge and really took his time explaining the wines to us. This is definitely a place to celebrate. Special occasion!! They do it right!!! Can’t wait to come back! Oh and the live jazz quarter...are you kidding? Such an added bonus
Fabulous food, great service and good music.
Charleston Grill has never failed to make us swoon under the spell of its service, gourmet dishes and romantic atmosphere. It is one of our favorites in all the world. We go for a booth for two near the live music.
A definite top dining destination in Charleston, our meal and service was flawless. Great ambience with live music. Highly recommended seafood and steaks and everything that goes with both.
Over the top service. Great food. Varied wine list
Excellent from start to finish!
This place was absolutely awesome. The atmosphere is so upscale, the live music was not loud, but just the right volume so you could listen but also have a conversation. The food was exceptional as was the service staff. Five-stars all around.
From the moment we walked in everything was perfect. Food delicious, service impeccable, etc. We went there for our 25th Anniversary dinner and they did not disappoint in any area.
Saved the Charleston Grill for our last evening in Charleston and it was worth the wait. Service was friendly and attentive, fish entrees (snapper and sturgeon) the best we had on our trip. The taste surprises between courses were delectable. A wonderful experience.
Service was outstanding. Compared to other reported great restaurants, the Charleston Grill did not meet our expectations for food value. The restaurant seemed to be reaching for unusually unique food combinations at the expense of value.
Visiting Charleston for a week and tried this mainstay for the first time. Wow - I see why they are consistently so well thought of. Wonderful food, great service, and an elegant setting where you can actually have a conversation without shouting. We’ll be back!
The food was very good!! Charleston Grill hostess and are waiters were amazing!!!
Outstanding service matched with superior food selection options, wine list was extensive and varied wine list (including dessert wines). Dinner included a nice musical duet which provided a very nice background (not overpowering). The staff to a person were extraordinary; friendly, knowledgeable, and a very engaging. Don't miss this venue when you visit Charleston.
Incredible service! Shawn & James described the ingredients in every dish we selected! We chose the 6 course Tasting Menu and was even able to select most of the dishes on the menu. The manager even stopped by to chat and asked how we were enjoying our tasting menu. We have always enjoyed the "Meal Experience" here at the Charleston Grill! Can't wait to visit again!
One of the finest meals I have enjoyed in many years. The service was beyond excellent. Incredibly extensive wine list. The food was spectacular. My wife and I enjoyed the six course tasting menu (there is also a four course and an eight). The portions were perfect for a tasting and every dish expertly prepared. I would absolutely recommend Charleston Grill.
Outstanding experience. Delicious food. Impeccable service. Truly the best restaurant in charleston.
Food was to die for. You can’t find a better place for a great
dining experience. Love the music, everything!!
Amazing meal and service superb
Sophisticated, Gracious, Creative, Luscious, Incomparable
Superlatives simply do not suffice when it comes to describing the Charleston Grill. Five Stars frankly won’t do. We drove to Charleston from Cincinnati to celebrate our anniversary—the second time we’ve done this. It’s a long way to go, but hopefully we can do it again. The restaurant itself is a destination. We made our reservations months in advance and we were treated like royalty, but then as you look around the beautiful dining room, all the diners are being pampered by the extraordinarily gracious, knowledgeable wait staff. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the maître d, wishing us a happy anniversary. We were instantly escorted to our table near the jazz trio, as we had requested. Did I forget to say a visit to the Charleston Grill is also musical! We love jazz and the Grill’s piano trio is part of the understated sophistication of this restaurant. The food, or course, is extraordinary. The menu is creative and enticing. Ordering is a bit like making your Christmas wish list! Trying to describe this wonderland of cuisine is futile. I’ve tried but I can’t do it justice. Suffice it to say, we told others staying at the B&B about our dining experience and they made their own reservations. The next morning, the whole group was raving about the Charleston Grill experience. Some of the descriptive terms I’ve used here came from them! Go and you, too, will also be struggling to find a way to write a review of a perfect restaurant experience—The matchless Charleston Grill! (Yes. It’s worth a two day drive!)
Great service but overpriced for the quality. No dish stood out
Birthday dinner...everything was perfect including the music
Fabulous. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Service spectacular, food outstanding. I highly recommend it and will be back soon.
Great experience with excellent service and food. Jazz trio playing. The four of us were all happy with our meals.
The sturgeon was delicious.
outstanding food, service and ambience. Could do without the music
Food was good but not outstanding. Would go back though! Service was nice and there was a great jazz band that we really enjoyed.
Everything was perfect. The service was exceptional.
Magnificent meal in every way. We did the 6 course tasting menu-everything exceeded our expectations. The wine list was great. Every course was amazing! Service was fantastic! We highly recommend the tasting menu!
Terrific service as servers acted like they really enjoyed their jobs! Very creative presentation of the food that had bursts of flavor in each bite. We dined at serveral places in Charleston and this was one of my top two!
Linen tablecloths, great service, creative appetizers!
We do not recommend the prix fixe option. For $80 per person, they are counting a spoonful of soup (literally a spoon filled with soup laying on a plate as a course). The steak option was less than 2 oz. The salad was the best part.
Nothing really memorable. No big deal maybe caught them on an off night
Fish was not great this trip but still a very good place.
