A wonderful night with great food and service! We visited because a Groupon was offered advertising this interesting restaurant! The only negative is that we were told gratuity was being added to the bill because of using the Groupon. Being generous tippers, this left a negative impression as no other fine dining venue has ever dine this practice but overall a very nice night!

My husband and I went to studio twice while down in Hilton Head on vacation - we both loved it! I had the tuna au poivre and my husband had the pallets with lamb,filet and grouper. Victor, our server, did an outstanding job being attentive to our needs but not in our face- perfect! We will be back!

Outstanding food and service. The owners greeted and seated us plus assisted in the service. Amanda was our server with just the right amount of checking on our table, making recommendations, and assuring that our dinners were prepared to our liking. I had the salad with gorgonzola cheese followed by petite filet and lobster. My wife had a fabulous bisque soup followed by a trio of items including the petite filet, fish & scallops. We shared a delicious chocolate torte topped with a berry sorbet & chocolate sauce. Intimate dining in an artistic setting. There was no musician performing but I understand that that is the case on the weekends. Since this was our first time at the restaurant the owner presented us with a certificate for BOGO entree' if we were to dine again within 30 days. We were leaving Hilton Head Island to return home the next day so we were unable to utilize the offer. When we return we will definitely be back to the Studio.

Disappointed.... the decor was uncomfortable, menu choices were limited, and prices were very high.
The service was very good. Probably won't go back. Too many good choices in HHI to make this expensive mistake again.

The Studio is a small, intimate setting for a wonderful dining experience. Menu is very creative and varied. The Lobster Spring Rolls were delicious although portion size for the price was a bit small. Mahi Mahi Paella was delicious as was the Wild Salmon entree bathed in a maple glaze. Dessert, a chocolate torte with raspberry sorbet, was to die for. Our server, Kyle, was attentive but not overly so....just what you would want. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Studio and will return. Gallery of art available for viewing at your leisure a very unique and enjoyable concept.

I chose this restaurant after I researched local small businesses online, then to find out they had a Groupon, we definitely hit the JACKPOT! This is a unique dining experience where you can enjoy a delicious meal and gaze upon fine art at the same time. The husband and wife team have created a fabulous dining experience with an excellent wait staff. We were visiting Hilton Head and we chose this restaurant after looking at some of the others offered in the area and we were extrememly happy with our choice. It comes highly recommended from Florida residents that enjoy fine dining. We both had the Filet, it was cooked to perfection and the presentation was impeccable. We give the restaurant 5 stars and next time we visit Hilton Head we will dine at The Studio once again. Thank you for the fabulous dinner!

We went for "restaurant week" so there were specials as well as the regular menu. Three of us loved our meals: "studio" salad, crab bisque, lamb curry, beef tenderloin were our choices. One person, despite being well advised by the server, chose a dish that he found too spicy. But, the service was perfect, the music was pleasant without being obtrusive and we will all certainly go back. The restaurant was full but never seemed crowed or noisy. It's name comes from the art on display which along the owners, adds to the welcoming atmosphere.

We have been eating here for many years ever since a native told us it was one of the best kept secrets on the island. That is a true statement--food is superb, wine list is great, service is terrific and ambiance is wonderful. Unequivocally, this is our favorite restaurant on the island. We have taken many friends who have added this to their "favorite list"

Nice to find a good menu from the normal Italian/American cuisine. Will be going back again with our vegan/vegetarian due to the better than average menu options.
Amazing quality of food - friendly helpful service.
Would go again and recommend it to a friend.

THis was the third or fourth time we have eaten at The Studio and we have never been disappointed. The food, service and ambience has always been superb. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to spent an enjoyable evening with great food.

The Studio never disappoints. My family has been coming here for years and we always enjoy ourselves. It is consistently good. Good service, & great food. This time we had the tuna and grouper entrees, desert was the always amazing bread pudding. Thank you for an excellent Christmas Eve Eve.

Went with party of four, three of which were vegetarians. The vegetarian options were broad, tasty and well presented. The service was friendly highly competent.
The place is intimate in size, there was an excellent guitar/harmonica player who is very entertaining and witty.

Have visited The Studio on several occasions, always a favorite. Eclectic mix of entrees often from local sources. Ambience enhanced by artworks by local painters. Service is attentive and personal. You leave satisfied.

As a Vegan, I often have difficulty finding a "real" meal; i.e., not just a salad. The Vegan offerings were delicious. I recommend the Buffalo Cauliflower! Our server was great. The décor is very artistic and beautiful, yet comfortable and cozy. with the Owner's artwork everywhere. I even bought one of her beautiful prints. A very nice dining experience.

Had a great dinner at the Studio. It was quiet romantic and peaceful. The food and service was outstanding . I had the seafood Piaia with Mai Mai it was perfect. The crab & Vidiala onion soup was hot & awesome .
There was even a buffalo style califlower dish and it was spicy & tasty as well.My wife had a cherry lifesaver cocktail it was really good . We had a bottle of Savion Blanc from California and it was moderately priced and very nice as well. The people there make you feel like family. Very nice.

This is a wonderful restaurant in the low country because it doesn't serve "shrimp and grits." The food is wonderful and the atmosphere perfect, with a very good guitarist to set the mood. One of our favourites on the island.

This is our second visit to the Studio and we looked forward to it. As usual, the ambiance was awesome, and the evening's singer was very entertaining without being intrusive. Cocktails were delicious, and were served in very unique glassware. We ordered the buffalo cauliflower as a shared appetizer. It was presented nicely on a bed of lettuce with the appropriate carrots, celery, and dip. However, it was so spicy I could not enjoy it. Then I ordered the Pad Thai, which was also so spicy that I gave it to my husband in exchange for his pallette, which was beautifully presented on a pallette shaped plate. It consisted of lamb, steak, and fish. The lamb and steak were deliciously cooked and tender; however, the fish was dry and flavorless, and topped with crab which had the taste and consistency of wet bread cubes. That was a bit disappointing. We will return, of course, but I'll know to stay away from anything with a spicy context the next time.

This is our second visit to The Studio. Our service was wonderful. The wait staff was very attentive. The food was excellent. The presentation of the appetizer, entree, and dessert was spectacular. We'll be back on our next visit to Hilton Head.

Not what it used to be. We have come to the studio many times over the years. It is a beautiful setting. This time we were very disappointed with the food. The menu is stale and hasn't changed in years. There were no dinner specials to add on to this menu. So even though the place is serene and beautiful we won't be back for awhile. It needs a big refresh of its menu.

An enjoyable evening! Service and food were fantastic. A very unexpected gem - located in an office building, however once inside you forget where you are. We were lucky enough to have live entertainment - and he was magnificent! Have already recommended to others and am looking forward to a return visit!
