    Small restaurant next to college campus. Excellent food, most organic, farm to table served as tapas. We had one vegan in our group but had a most memorable meal family style.

    First time dining at Sorghum and Salt. The menu was intriguing so we opted for the Chef’s 4-course tasting menu. They easily accommodated my food allergies. Each dish was creative and delicious. We are at many nice restaurants in four cities on our trip and this was our favorite, by far.

    Flavors are off the charts! Absolutely amazing. Some reviews commented on small portions but we found one shared small plate and two large plates were plenty for the two of us. They serve European portions, not American portions! The decor belies the food experience. They should ditch the "industrial" scheme (which would be fine for a basic burger and beer joint) and go "modern chic" or something that is worthy of what the kitchen is putting out. Highly recommend Sorghum and Salt!

    Food was delicious. Service was great. My husband and I love small plates. We had the heirloom tomatoes, the fresh ricotta, the scallops, the gnocchi, and the short ribs. Would order all of them again! The white chocolate mousse was delicious. Lovely local beer selection. We left comfortably full. We were seated by the window which I liked, but so did the fly that snuck in. The seat shape was a tad uncomfortable for wide bottomed people. Great food and great time, would go again if we return to the area!

    ..coming into Charleston we’d researched places to dine and this restaurant was at the top of the list - and for very good reason. If you are seeking something different, delectable and out outright delicious, you can not go wrong with Sorghum and Salt. Every course of our meal was simple, thoughtful and mouth watering - like nothing we have ever experienced. The owner and chef is amazingly talented at bringing dishes to live inside your spirit for a long time after you’ve experienced them. He made watermelon dance, potatoes sing and the beet juice dessert literally ran away with my heart like a great lover lost. It’s a cool quiet vibe - RICH with one of a kind decor. Please do yourself a favor.. take a bike taxi one evening and enjoy one of the best places to dine in Charleston. You will not be disappointed.

    My favorite place to eat, when you go it's not to eat but for the experience. It is definitely a chefs restaurant with a chef that takes it very seriously. All of the produce used is from the Charleston area. The service was great and always had everything I needed, I have seen other reviews where people complained because they thought since the quality of the food was so high they expected better from service or so they say. The restaurant it self has a very industrial feel. I really enjoy the chef's counter where you can watch all the food be made and talk to the chef's about the dishes. This is definitely not a place to go to every week unless you have the money. It is a place that is worth every penny, if you have the money!

    I took my wife and daughters for dinner on a Friday night. The host was not welcoming and made us feel that if we didn't want wine, we should leave. The food was good not great. The biggest negative was that management allowed a table near ours to engage in an expletive-filled shouting match that lasted the duration of our meal. We won't be back.

    Why aren’t more people raving about this restaurant? Best meal we’ve ever had in Charleston. Super creative tasting/tapas menu. Everything we had was a gourmet experience — the chef nailed all of the textures and flavors your palate craves. And vegetables elevated to main dishes due to flavor combinations and plating — the parsnips were to die for. Also highly recommend the “Collared Caesar” and the Short Ribs. And the deconstructed Cheesecake was AMAZING! If you’re a foodie, get out of the touristy area of downtown and come to Sorghum & Salt. Your sophisticated palate will not be disappointed.

From being greeted at the door to the moment we left, the team was attentive without being on top of us, the ambiance was as if you were having a world class meal in your own sitting room, and the food was exceptionally prepared and presented.
