    Our food was delicious. The ambiance was just the right vibe for our last night in Charleston. Rooftop outdoor space is a fun space with plenty of seating and a couple of nice fire pits. Food highlights: the steak and truffle fries, the calamari, and the corn ravioli.

    Strange experience. We arrived right at our reservation time and although there were almost no diners seated, they had a difficult time figuring out where to seat us. After 10 minutes or so, they configured a table for 3 in a corner and seated us. Another 10 minutes passed and they decided to escort us to another table for 4 on the other side of the restaurant. Odd…

    This was my second visit. First time was for brunch. Food was good but service was not great. We sat outside and there was very little shade. This trip was for dinner. We sat inside. The food was ok nothing special. Over priced.

    We went on a drizzly, damp Sunday night so it was very quiet. Beautiful restaurant with great views. We had cocktails and appetizers. The Kobe beef carpaccio was delicious and the charcuterie hit the spot. We would have stayed for more but we were doing a crawl to try as many different restaurants as possible that weekend

    We went with high hopes and left feeling disgruntled. The restaurant is beautiful and we sat outside. It was not busy so you would think the service would be great. However, our server appeared to be disinterested in us and was often gone and seen chatting with other servers. We would definitely not return here especially as there are so many other great restaurants in the city.

    It took us 3.5 hours to have our meal. 2 hours to get 1 drink and an appetizer. Food was just ok for the price. Ambiance was the best part, I’d recommend stopping by for a drink on the rooftop and skipping dinner.

    We have dined here multiple times and it has been consistently a wonderful experience. The restaurant has a modern fun vibe and eating on the patio is an added bonus. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Try the Red Snapper and Calamari. The staff is personable, knows their menu and go out of their way to please their patrons. Simply put it's a good time every time.

    We were there on a Sunday and that might be one reason this venue was a disappointment. Ordered a burger, but they we’re out of buns!?! The flounder we ordered claimed to be catch of the day but it was at best catch from the previous week, very dry and tasteless. The chicken was also tasteless. We expressed we were not satisfied but we didn’t get any compensation whatsoever. I won’t recommend this place, even if the outside setting was quite nice and cozy.

    Our server alexus was fantastic! But the hostess was extremely rude. We came with a bachelorette trip and wrote in the notes that we wanted to sit outside. Upon arrival we asked to sit outside but we’re told by the hostess that no seats outside were available. We then asked politely if anything became available if the hostess would let us know and she said yes. She didn’t. She gave us nasty looks and even pointed at us! I even stepped outside and there were many open seats. I work in customer service and was shocked by her extremely rude attitude, definitely will not return based on her service, wish I caught her name.

    Went for dessert and drinks. Overpriced and small desserts (sorta expected this). Ambiance not great. Servers nice but not terribly helpful. The “gem” was when my Cognac came in a highball glass. I’m not that snooty but would have expected better service from a high end hotel.

    The ambiance was wonderful and sever and hostess amazing. The cheesecake was to die for, however, the shrimp and grits seemed pretty bland, and coming from someone who doesn't like anything with much spice, that's saying something. Otherwise, everything was exemplary.

I didn't care for the grits with shrimp but our waitress quickly changed out our meals and the pasta was great. It was our waitress first note on her own and she did a fantastic job in accommodating us. I would definitely recommend girls weekend trip to visit ELEVE.

    Great service, great ambiance and delicious food and drinks. Although we were here for my bachelorette and none of the servers mentioned anything or congratulated me, they were all super kind to my pregnant friend and it kind of made this brunch about her, which I was totally fine with.

    Portions extremely small. Taste is not what you would expect from the cost and portion size. The way the food looks ok the plate is nice. But if you want fancy food that tastes good and has good portion size then go to 5- church or Tempest. The only thing this place has going for it is the rooftop. I would only return to this place for a drink and maybe appetizer. Not a meal.
