    Was extremely disappointed and surprised that our dinner was sub-par. We spent $65 on the New York Strip steak, which was first undercooked then burnt and ultimately tasteless and gritty. The Caesar salad was pretty but extremely bland. Possibly a one-off, regardless - not a good choice.

    Beautiful and classy ambiance. Waiter was excellent. Bartender was slow and the Old fashioned was fair. Decent wine list. Food was good but I was expecting amazing for what they charge. It wasn't amazing.

    This restaurant was highly ranked but I do not think it lived up to the hype. Both steaks were charred on the outside and the cuts of meat were fine but not worth the price. Our server was polite but the level of service is not what you would expect from this restaurant. We had a far better meal with excellent service just a few blocks away for less money. If you truly are a foodie and want a well curated menu and excellent service this was not the place.

    The first thing we encountered was that it was very noisy, there was not much noise among each other. The waiter was a professional and a very nice girl. We really liked her and we left in a good mood. I ordered foie gras and it was burnt; my husband’s salad with burata was delicious. But the biggest disappointment was the second course, my husband ordered scallops with crab, the sauce was too salty, I had to drink a lot of water and the crab was not cleaned, my husband found pieces of panzer in his mouth, it was not pleasant and spoiled the impression of the scallops themselves, I ordered a short one rib, the meat was tender but the sauce was again too salty. Apparently yesterday the cooks had problems with tastes. The creme brulee was cooked correctly and it was nice, their famous cake was delicious. The overall impression was such that we will not leave this restaurant on our list of favorites. Our mood was saved by the waiter; we are grateful to her for this evening.

    Absolutely phenomenal dining experience. Everything was lovely. The scallops were prepared in the most flavorful way; best I’ve ever had. Coconut cake is a must! Service (Dana) was very attentive, but in a subtle way. This was one of the highlights of our yearly trip to Charleston!
