We adore any, and all, kind words from our patrons, but this one had us brimming ear to ear … so of course we had to share! “The chef is a graduate from Le Cordon Blu in France. You can tell. You can also tell a lot about the place when more than half of the …

Great food, below average service. The swordfish was huge and cooked to perfection. The local special, tumeric rubbed wreckfish plated on a bed of sliced cucumbers and baby potatoes proved to be a great flavor combination, and likewise cooked perfectly. The Mac & Cheese creamy and savory, sautéed mushrooms excellent as were the sautéed vegetables. The service, however, did not match the quality of the food. The food took much longer than expected to arrive - others seated well after us received their entrees before us (We didn't order appetizers nor were we slow to order), the plates came out in stages instead of simultaneously so others in the group were waiting, the server checked on us almost immediately after the food was delivered - we hadn't even taken a bite - but then we never saw her again, she forgot to include a side dish we ordered, and we had to ask someone else to bring us the check. We'll definitely return for the food and hope the poor service was an anomaly.

A must choose for a quaint, high quality dining experience with home-like feel. It is away from the noisier Market street area and is in an old renovated home. Definitely call ahead for a reservation as this place is super busy all the time. The salmon was delicious and the pork shank is a must order because they slow roast it themselves and it is scrumptious.

I judge places on their salad, and their ability to accommodate to my food allergies. They care very much about serving a good salad, which I appreciate, and I was surprised the salmon was possibly the best I've ever had. And they accommodated to my dairy allergy very well. Highly recommend!

Great atmosphere in an old single home: felt very uniquely Charleston. Food was excellent. Highly recommend the fried oysters.

Very friendly and attentive staff; mussels are excellent; added bacon to burger but so salty it ruined the flavor of what would have been a great meal. Place is cramped and noisy; wait staff flying about seems like an accident waiting to happen.

Probably had the best meal ever on Friday night. The brussel sprouts were absolutely delicious. We had a party of four and each of our dinners was fabulous. The staff was knowledgeable and most attentive. Don't miss it if you are in Charleston.
