    The first time my husband and I ate here it was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. This time- very subpar. Over salted. The food just didn’t have as great of flavor as last time. Maybe the chef was different this night. We ordered pomme frites as a side- and I think the fries from CFA are better. Do better Maison!

    Appetizers were so good but, the rest of our food was too salty. I would go back for the escargot and cocktails.

    Have you ever been to Café Voltaire in Paris? That's how memorable a meal at Maison can be. Last night's flounder with spinach and a crispy mille feuille of potato was one of the best meals I have ever tasted. Love how Maison balances exquisite food with an almost low-key vibe of attentive but not pretentious service and attractive but not over the top decor. Merci encore Maison!

    Delicious food. Never fails to be a great place to dine. The waiter was very helpful and friendly. The only thing is the tables are very close together, but the food and friendly service more than make up for that. Definitely on our list of favorite places to eat. They even helped us with parking. Amazingly friendly and should be on your list of place to dine in Charleston !!!

    We both ordered the monkfish. Everything about it was delightful except it was too salty, or perhaps it was the vegetables that were served with it that were too salty. Difficult to know. In either case it became very distracting from the subtle flavors of the rest of the course. Service was excellent. Table arrangement leaves a lot to be desired as the close proximity to adjoining guests was unhealthy. Apple crisp type dessert was average. First course salad was very overpriced and did not seem to include the delicate baby Bibb lettuce from our past visit but instead appeared to be romaine. Nevertheless, never having had monkfish before I found it exquisite and hope that the saltiness issue was an exception.

    Food including appetizers were excellent, very loud but there was one large group who made the noise so that probably is not an every day event. Service great, ambiance plain but acceptable. Could have been a little warmer room temperature wise
