This is one of the best restaurants in the *world*. The best chefs in other cities know it. While there are many fine restaurants in Charleston, nothing can touch McCrady's. This one isn't even close. I suspect that most who say that other restaurants in the area are better either haven't eaten at McCrady's or think a grilled piece of meat and a potato equal fine dining.
After looking at Saffire's menu on Restaurant.com, I decided to buy a coupon from the site. My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary with dinner at Saffire's and we couldn't be happier with our experience there. The menu at the restaurant was very different than the one listed on Restaurant.com>, but we were pleased nonetheless. I definitely think that the Marriott Charleston could do with some more advertising of this excellent little bistro. Our server was fantastic and very knowledgeable in regards to the menu, had plenty of suggestions and answered our questions as well. The green flatbread was amazing, if you enjoy a great pesto, this is the perfect choice as a starter (or even a meal for one). I ordered the apple and sausage stuffed chicken and risotto, it was delicious and flavorful, the portion was very large and I wasn't able to finish it all! My husband had the salmon with lobster ravioli and artichoke, again a HUGE meal...he enjoyed every bite of it. Our serer suggested the key lime tart (with a gingersnap and blueberry compote) for dessert...I wish we'd ordered two of them, it was gone within a few minutes!
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, and the food was divine. We will definitely be returning!
FIG is an interesting place. The menu is great with lots of fresh choices. However, the portions were tiny and expensive. I was not expecting a huge plate full of food but considering that sides are extra I expected the entree to be filling. I'll probably try it again since the menu was so good but hoepfully I can find someone else to pay!
decent service. one option for pescatarians and that was salmon...not very exciting choices. we also had a reservation and was not seated until 45 minutes afterwards with no apologies from anyone about the wait. will not go back unless something changes
I just ate at the Woodlands about a week ago! Food and service were excellent. I got the seared scallops and lobster bisque. Absolutely wonderful! You have to go out there if you haven't been lately!
I don't know what your reviewers are paid to offer commentary but this restaurant was so poorly received it isn't even open anymore. The two preceding versions of Red Sky were highly successful. Watch for it to rise from the ashes again under new ownership and kitchen leadership
I LOVE THIS PLACE!
Favorite menu items are the Deviled Eggs, Fried Chicken, and Red Velvet Cupcakes. YUM!
VERY good food and reasonable prices - great value! i love the asparagus and mac and cheese sides, and the crab fritter and fried chicken are amazing as well. great restaurant to bring friends!
Will not go back here. Way too crowded and the acoustics are terrible. Waited for an hour for a table (yes, we had reservations) and the service was bad. Order came out wrong and then when they fixed it, the food came out cold. Overall, not a good experience.
great service .. mediocre food .. over hyped .. no where close to what Brett has done before .. sensing this is a side investment with no real McKee hands-on involvement ..
I love the wine dinner Woodlands offer and it is at a great price, only $74 for a tasting with over 12 wine with cheese, follow by a four course wine pairing and it end at 9.30. Don't miss it!
Dining at Roberts was an amazing experience. My boyfriend and I went to celebrate our 5th anniversary, and it couldn't have been more wonderful. Fine dining at its best. The food was excellent and the staff were incredibly accommodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all.
Best steak I have ever had! Don't care to be seated in the porch area. Could that be because I was alone? Don't discriminate because someone is single! I still tip 20% or higher, depending on the service! I would have waited for 2 top! And I am not afraid to share the table with someone else!
Prices are very good! Management is wonderful! The owners...magnificent! Glad to see Chef Brett McKee is up and around again! Kudos Brett! Waiting for O-Ku!
Today (12/30/09), I called three times to make NYE reservations and was hung on three times by a person named Steven. I didn't get to say one word. Then after that, no one answered at all. The call went to voicemail. What kind of restaurant does this??! Forget Tristan.
I think the food is fabulous, but the downside for me is the flatware and the noise. There was a guy 3 tables away shouting so loud it was unbearable. The flatware is awful, nice presentation, ruined by this simple fix.
Dinner tonight was awesome. Got there at 6 pm and got a table. We would have been waiting without a reservation at 6:30. We had the specials... parmesan encrusted fried flounder and the slow smoked two pork chops. Unbelievable. Vanilla ice cream over apple cobbler to finish it off was perfect. The only hint of a roadhouse in my mind was the school lunch cafeteria quality flatware. A cheap set of flatware available at any Target would have made the experience a 5 star night.
Went last week for dinner with a group. Positives...Found the food to be terrific - we sampled just about everything, including apps. All fresh, well prepared, and excellent service - Negatives...was seated out in closed-in porch - extreamly noisey - will never sit out there again - could not hear the person seated next to you. In main dinning room - felt a bit warm...fireplace, ect - but a lot quieter. Parking lighting a problem especially exiting onto Rt 17 - All in all - an excellent restaurant and great location -
My wife and I went there last week and it was amazing! The food was delicious, the service was great! The setting is quiet and a little romantic. Also, they have an extensive wine list.
Ate here this evening with the family. It was an enjoyable meal but nothing to write home about. The service was slowish (water and drink glasses were empty before a server came around AND we were promised bread with the meal THREE times and it NEVER came). Prices were reasonable.
The music on the patio was an added bonus.
Will return but not soon.....there are many better places in Mt P and Daniel Island to go to.
WoW, need I say more,
Two apps and two entrees for around $50, we enjoyed the Amberjack which was AWESOME and the Halabat which lacked seasoning (compared to the Amberjack) but the buttery sauce was great on the potatoes, and dipping the bread.
If you hve never been the service is like none other, the atmosphere is also quite nice.
Again if you need an excuse to splurge this is it,
While we didn't drink, there is a very extensive wine list, about 40 of them are available by the glass
