    The food was great. The young lady at the rooftop bar was really friendly as well. My issue came with the service we received from our waiter Rob. We sat down and received our water and menus then placed an order for our drinks. Well thankfully we did that because we sat there for about 20 minutes before we were asked if we were ready to order. Im from Charleston and eat out at minimum once a week downtown for dinner/brunch so I know a busy restaurant when I see one and in that case would be more understanding 110%. Once our waiter finally came to take our food order that was it. We were never asked if we needed anything. Never asked if we would like even something as simple as a mimosa since this was brunch. At this point my boyfriend becomes a little annoyed because after we ordered our food we counted maybe 5/6 times our waiter walked by us, made eye contact with my boyfeiend and quickly looked away (i mean he could not even signal for him to stop by our table...thats how fast the lookaway was once eye contact was made). We eventually got tired of waiting so my boyfriend goes to the bar and gets us a mimosa...even the bartender was in awe that we came up being that we were seated guests. Our waiter finally comes back with our food..we enjoy (coodles to the chef)...my boyfriend pushes his plate to the side..to take a breather...waiter comes no questions asked and takes his plate (luckily he was full and was okay with this even though he was shocked). I finish he takes my plate (i placed my plate at the front of the table so im obviously done). Waiter brings the check. Never asks if we were done needed anything wanted anything NOTHING...never even asked if we needed a refill of water smh. My boyfriend at this point obviously fed up asks "how can you bring the check when you never asked if we were done"...all in all food AMAZING (not my first time there bt it was for my boyfriend) but we wont ever come back.

    We had a group of 5 ladies in our party…The salads were good, especially the panzanella salad. We got the corn bread to share; it tasted good but was extremely dry! One got the short ribs but couldn’t eat them because they were overly salty, to the point it didn’t taste good (our waitress let the chef know). Someone got the crab fettuccine; it had no sauce other than the juice from the crab meat, disappointing. We also go the beet salad, which was great. We got a side of the risotto to share and it was not risotto; it was basically cooked minute rice with dried parsley and shredded parm cheese, so if you’re expecting actual risotto, don’t order this.

    What an amazing evening. The food was great and the staff phenomenal. I highly recommend getting the frozen painkiller or an old fashioned. The cornbread… LET ME REPEAT… the cornbread is a MUST. After dinner, grab a to go drink and head up to their roof.

    We reserved a Saturday brunch and experienced the following: - Nice place - Nice live jazz music - DON’T ask for a straw. When I asked the bartender for a straw with my Bloody Mary in a tall thin glass his comment was “I don’t have one” and walked away. When we asked if anyone in the restaurant had a straw he said no with an eat sh-t attitude. Waitress was pleasant and explained the no straw policy. Turtles with a not sure if that the reason comment. - Waitress was great and did a fabulous job making sure we were happy. - We both ordered Steaks and Poached eggs. Egg was brutal, tasted like vinegar (apparently that’s how they cook poached eggs, with all vinegar). We were asked if we wanted another egg but my wife was already not feeling well due to the vinegar. Steak was over cooked and like rubber. My wife left her plate full and I finished because I was starving. - We did not complain or ask for the meal to be returned or recooked. Not needed when we ordered the same thing. Dining room is a nice setting and Roof top is great.

    This is a diner that provides adequate food. I felt a bit rushed when they brought our entrees out and hovered before we were halfway through our starters. If they had asked how the dessert was, they would have been told it was not great

    My friends and I went for a Brunch. I ordered Steak & Eggs. Food was okay. Service was okay. The man took my unfinished plate without even asking if I’m done with it, and we felt like the servers are rushing us to finish our food and wanted to take our plates.

    This was my birthday dinner-had out of town guests with me as well. We were so excited for this dinner and what a lousy and disappointing experience it was! We had to wait to be seated after our reservation- at least 15 minutes. Then the server took a while to come back after we sat. Food was the biggest joke of all-3 out of 5 steaks came out way undercooked- almost rare. We sent them back and they still came back undercooked. The manager did take off the steaks and a round of drinks. The server was also sweet. But I don’t have much else positive to say about our experience. Not sure if we will go back anytime soon.

    Do not eat here. This was the worst experience we’ve ever had. We only saw our server twice and the food was horrific, cold, and looked old. Risotto? No-rotto. It was 90 second ready rice. We weren’t the first table to send our food back.

    Ok, we had high expectations because of the ratings and we were super disappointed. Just for clarification, the grill is not on the rooftop, thus no dining on the roof…only drinks. Our food was almost inedible; very poor quality for steak and eggs were more oil than eggs. For brunch, we should’ve picked a different spot!

    Restaurant is beautiful inside and lively along very busy King Street. Our server was amazing -- very attentive and great with suggestions. Food was good. We split the panzanella salad and we tried the rib eye and porterhouse steaks and mushrooms and truffle mashed potatoes. Food was excellent. Fun people watching the groups going to the rooftop bar, which we also checked out. Great views of Charleston.
