Great service, good wine list, outstanding vegetarian selections !
Disappointed music didn't start until we wee about ready to leave.
The artistic elements make this restaurant unique. Although we did not see the artist working at their easel, it was a busy Friday evening, the small dining space and the attentive staff, the quality food choices, and presentation made for a great meal. My choice of seared scallops came with a surprising array of Mediterranean veggies and mix of flavors that really impressed. Of all the restaurant choices on HHI, I do recommend The Studio for an authentic dining experience.
I had a wonderful experience with 14 of my friends. The service, food and atmosphere was first class.
Our 2nd visit was not as good as the 1st. All was well until the desert arrived. It was obviously sub-par based on the first visit a few nights earlier. Things happen. But when my wife gently asked for a re-do, the waiter was not gracious for this $10 dessert. Body language was poor, the response was an "okay ". Owner came by and body language was again poor and verbal response was not along the lines of sorry, we will make it right. There seemed to be disgust and disbelief. However, the re-do was much better and same as 1st visit. The dessert was obviously not the usual quality, so why view the problem was with the customer?? Odd.
Really enjoyed ourselves the food was excellent and great wine menu. The decor is tired but don’t let that put you off. Lots of art to look at. The service great, we were not rushed and really enjoyed our meal
I am vegan and have had a very challenging time finding good vegan food on the Island. The Studio is superb! The owners have been vegan for 7 years and 'get it'. There are NUMEROUS vegan items on the menu (as well as the 'other things' folks enjoy, which I'm told by my husband are great). A guy plays a guitar. The owner comes around to check on folks. Her art is nicely placed here & there (very talented) as well as other local artists' work. Cozy. Don't look anywhere else!
Amazing culinary experience!
Fantastic and intimate evening of dining pleasure. Have a live Guitarist added to the ambiance. Service was excellent and the meal delicious.
We had a coupon from a timeshare presentation, so the price was right! Would go again and try the early bird price fix.
Great all around. Live music was a nice touch!
The Studio, as always, pleases the pallet and thirst with a holiness and a friendliness rivaling any place you have been. A great owner, pleasant and helpful wait staff, good entertainment. The Specials always are inventive and the regular menu is NOT regular. Great dishes, some seasonal others such as the seafood paella are just incredible - saffron rice, beurre blanc sauce with clams, shrimp, andouille sausage and always a surprise local fish, this time cob. Awesome! Come here for a relaxed, quiet evening!
The prices were expected but the value was just not there. Our waiter disappeared after taking our order and was unseen the rest of the evening without any explanation. Bill's steak was unflavored. By jambalaya was excellent! Music was enjoyable.
Excellent food and service . Wonderful value if you get the 3 course early bird special for $18.99!
Appetizers are fantastic. Food as always is good. Great wine list.
Service was excellent.
Terrific gourmet vegan food, art, music. The perfect restaurant experience. Highest recommendation.
This was the only place in Hilton Head that my husband and I could find with more than one vegan option and it did not disappoint! We started with the buffalo cauliflower, he got the hippie loaf and I got the plaintain gnocchi, and we shared the chocolate tart for dessert. All of it was literally amazing. We definitely recommend!
We love the Studio! One of our faves on HHI. The food is ALWAYS perfect. Service is exactly right. The ambiance is great and everything from the soft, live music to the interesting art on display makes for a very comfortable and enjoyable dinner.
Food was very mediocre
Unique menu (studio palette). Art display, live painting and music some nights. Interesting table settings. Tuna carpaccio..excellent appetizer
One of our favorite spots in HIlton Head we eat here on many special occasions or when we entertain visitors. Service, food and ambiance are outstanding.
Excellent meal and service
Hours after the meal we were still talking about our meal. It was soooooo yummy, we savored every mouthful. They had a wonderful guitarist, the service was superb, you can pursue the artwork... Love love love The Studio!
We had a wonderful dining experience at the Studio. Everything we ordered was prepared perfectly. My husband had the filet mignon and it melted in his mouth. I had scallops which were seasoned and cooked to perfection. In addition to the excellent food everything was presented so artistically. We will definitely return to this restaurant again and again.
Presentation of food was exquisite. Preparation of food was extremely good. Service was outstanding Pace of delivery of food was very good. A very relaxing meal. On the patio, road noise seriously affected the ambience. Meal was somewhat pricey.
We had used a $25 gift certificate which triggered an automatic 20% gratuity which I believe should have been calculated on the before tax amount of the bill.
Overall a good experience of extremely good food.
Stopped in for dinner since we saw it on the website and something on the menu sparked my interest. Neat place; a restaurant with an art gallery. The Plantain Gnocchi sounded really good and I didn't know what to expect. It was good. My wife liked her duck. Server was friendly and attentive. Prices are a bit on the pricey side but since it was good, we didn't mind.
Unique and different dining experience.
The food was delicious and perfectly presented.
Personnel were warm and welcoming!
Our dining experience at the studio was one of the best we have ever had. We picked the jalapeño black bean hummus as an appetizer. The bread served was out of this world! I chose the eggplant jambalaya (vegan) my girl friend had the hippie loaf also vegan. The chef knocked these dishes out of the park!! Absolutely dynamite !
We ordered the German Chocolate torte which was vegan as well . Again the best I’ve ever had! Amanda our server was outstanding! Went above and beyond to make our experience the best. I have to apologize that I forgot the names of the male server and female hostess, but they both were outstanding and went above and beyond. Great team work !!
I can’t rave enough about the chef and his creations!! We will be back again very soon. Both of us work in hospitality on the hotel side as well food and beverage. we will recommend this special place (the Studio )to our guests and customers to enjoy while visting HHI! Thank you!!!
The experience was so amazing our phones were the last thing on our mind. So sorry for such few photos!
Everything was so delicious at The Studio and the portions all a good size - larger than the pictures online. I had the Palette - filet mingon, lamb chops, and grouper in a crab sauce to die for. Three scoops of mashed potatoes (one for each protein?) was definite overkill but that’s not much to complain about. My husband had the strip steak, perfectly done, and our friend had divers scallops that were beautifully grilled, served with olives, tomatoes, artichoke
hearts and homemade ravioli - if it is on the menu next time I will choose that! The Australian Monkey wine was also delicious as were the blueberry cake dessert and the flan. The crab and onion soup was just okay - too many onions. We sat outside which made all the difference - it was dark and cold inside.
The Studio is my favorite place to visit by far! Amazing food and ambiance! The chef is always amazing and his wife (the artist) is so talented as well. We always make time to go to this restaurant any time we are visiting Hilton Head.
Had a wonderful dinner on Hilton Head. This restaurant was a rel find. For a relaxing evening out. The food and service was excellent. We sat outside on a pleasant spring evening. The noise from the road was present but not intrusive. No bugs but I am not sure I would eat outside during the summer. The art was interesting. We did not see all of it as there was another room off the main room. I do not know if we could have gone there. Overall an excellent experience
The Studio is my favorite restaurant! The food and service are beyond reproach!
The Studio never ceases to Amaze! The wait staff is always attentive. The food was exceptional. We dined outside for the first time and it was great. We will always make this our special dinner when we’re in Hilton Head.
My fiancé and I throughly enjoyed our experience there and will definitely return
We loved the outdoor seating and being Vegans we’re very excited and pleasantly surprised with the menu options. The food was delicious and our servers were very gracious and accommodating. The live music was not our favorite but it did not take away from our night.
We truly loved the food and service. Three of us had a special of the night meal that was wonderful It was paella and truly great.
The ambiance was delightful along with the live music that made it truly special.
We will come back soon! Most Hilton Head restaurants are nothing to write home about but t
The Studio was worth this review given they made friend getogether memorable.
Loved the quiet guitar. Made the evening very nice.
The onion crab bisque was excellent .
Filet done just right.
Food was excellent. Quiet music by live artist. Service well done but not intrusive.
We will be back to try other menu items. I could have made a meal alone on the Cauliflower appetizer.
excellent food, service, acoustic guitar music during dinner. heard rumors the portions were small, quite the contrary a very filling and tasty meal. Off the beaten path in HHI, but definitely worth finding it if you're looking for a somewhat romantic, artistic evening with great food and easy listening music. we'll be back.
