Fantastic fresh and tasty food. Chris, our waitress, was wonderfully informative and attentive without being overboard. Pretty restaurant, perfect for lunch. The crab salad and prawn tacos were excellent. Very impressive, thank you! So far some of the best food we have eaten in Charleston.

There were 5 of us for Sunday Brunch and it was just lovely. The service was exceptional as as the food. The eggs Benedict was the best I have ever had. Great choices on the buffet and everything was great. Be sure to try the peach tea and the Caramel Broiche.

We went for Sunday brunch and didn't realize that brunch was a buffet. The buffet was quite good, though.
A few notes:
Eggs Benedict were perfectly prepared
French toast nicely done, not soggy at all
Excellent quality of fresh fruit
Sliced smoked salmon was delicious
Great selection of assorted pastries.
Omelette station available
Service is incredible. Paul was our waiter and he was perhaps the finest server we had all weekend. He always wore a smile, very friendly, inviting and made us feel extremely welcome. He was very thorough and obviously well knowledged. You will surely have a better dining experience if Paul is your server.
I was the only person in my party eating the buffet. Looking over the menu, prices seem a bit more expensive than other places we are, and I can't say that it's justified. The portions were not small, but price points were higher than expected. For example the $26 burger was less enjoyable than the Husk burger or the burger at Cypress. Of all the places we ate for a long weekend in Charleston, it's top tier price but probably second to third tier value. The food was good, but considering the cost, there are several places I'd rather visit.

We had an exquisite time celebrating our 10 year anniversary at the Palmetto Café! The ambiance, food, and waitstaff were the epitome of southern hospitality. We could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you, Palmetto Café !

I go to Charleston every few years and always want to eat lunch here (not open for dinner!) and have the seafood club. Sadly it is no longer the lobster club, guessing due to cost, but there is a good deal of lobster and a few shrimp. It is just a great layered sandwich. Our guests had a burger and pea soup which they both liked. We took our time, and although they were very busy we were not rushed. It is in the lobby of the Charleston Place Hotel.

This was by far the best Sunday brunch that I've had...Ever! The omlette was superb, and our server, John was outstanding!! We were celebrating getting married the day before and our overall experience at Palmetto and the Belmond Hotel was simply marvelous. Definitely looking forward to our next stay!!

The service could not have been better, very friendly and helpful. Their split pea soup was wonderful, the scallops were perfect and the side of asparagus was terrific. My friend had the crab tacos and she recommended that I get them the next time we are there.

Loved our birthday celebration luncheon and had a great table outside. The service was top notch, and everyone loved their entree. The staff brought out two Happy Birthday desserts! Great touch. I would definitely go back, on my next trip to Charleston.

Fantastic experience! Austin was our server and he made us feel very welcomed and tweaked the scramble to meet our high hopes and vegetarian request. Coffee was very good and peach tea was tasty.
The ambiance is warm and open. Service is top notch yet not overly formal. We would gladly come back for breakfast.

Went specifically for Sunday brunch but was disappointed with the selection and value. I expected a little more variety besides the typical scrambled eggs and bacon for $27. There were no non-breakfast items and no biscuits and gravy. Service was mediocre.

The restaurant is light and inviting. The hostess seemed very confused on Sunday morning, kept us waiting when we had a reservation with tables sitting empty, tried to call people who arrived after we did, and had our name wrong even after asking us and checking us in. Good, fresh food.

Such an enjoyable experience! Chris was our waitress and she was very pleasant and had great recommendations. The She Crab Soup and Crab salad are highly recommended. A wonderful go-to place in Charleston! Cute and relaxing restaurant.

Palmetto Café is always excellent! We were staying in the hotel for a business meeting and wanted to have lunch before leaving. The peach tea is just perfect and a wonderful treat on a hot, summer day and the octopus is the best anywhere I have been in the United States. Our server, Chris, was so nice, friendly and helpful! Just excellent!
