Salsa nite has been discontinued on saturdays for months now, why is this still not updated. I've never tried the restaurant, this is not a review of the restaurant. Salsa nite used to be awesome but last I heard, it was moved elsewhere.
Charming, disciplined, tasty, and satisfying.
Despite their inauspicious location behind the Sonic on Long Point Road, the Bistro 536 folks have done a good job of creating a good atmosphere for classy eating. They've ditched the white tablecloths, which was an appropriate choice, but the quality of food remains firmly at that level.
The menu is disciplined, or limited depending on your palate. However among my several meals there I've seen 10 different entrees ordered. I've had a consistently satisfied response both personally and among my dining companions. Highlights include the mushroom crostini appetizer, the baked mahi-mahi and pork tenderloin entrees, and the sumptuous cake pictured in CCP's review. My last meal, the bouillabaise hit well on everything but slightly overcooked fish; the shellfish, broth, and vegetables were great.
The service has demonstrated consistently good timing, though certainly not the elite level that one sees at the (considerably more expensive!) hot-spots downtown like Cypress.
They do have a kids' menu, and my son (toddler) enjoyed it although he has an abnormally good openness to food. However, I enjoyed it more for adult dining with friends. If you're in the neighborhood and want quality food without the noise of the Belle Hall selections... you're in good luck with Bistro 536.
The food was great, don't know if you are really getting what you pay for. Very sleek but also very crowded. I think there was a bet to see how many tables they could actually get in the place. Of course, the place is very loud because you are practically in the other table's lap. But the food and service were great.
Great food and great service. THe place is great but as mentioned before... it is so loud. I don't know why people forget about their "inside voice" once they get in public. You don't have to shout, you are sitting at the same table.
So sorry I scared you away from 17N, thankfully I don't work there anymore so we wont see each other :)
FYI: Everyone from back of the house to front of the house works very hard to please every person that comes in that resturant. The Manager Jason, visits every table and makes sure things are to your satisfactory. Brett has done very well with this resturant and it's always improving.
The ONLY negative things about the resturant is the loudness (which is being worked on)and the horrendous customers that have no resturant etiquette.
Other than that, it's a comfortable and family friendly, southern environment.
They have an amazing Chef and I assure you your dining experience will be a good one.
... go back to New York.
I think that this place is a great bang for your buck restaurant. The gnocchi with garlic and mushrooms are out of this world, really little pillows of wonderfullness! It is not a foodie type of place and the atmosphere is not great, but for a neighborhood favorite where you can all get a nice meal for not too much money it cannot be beat, and did I mention the gnocchi???
We had a group of 7 down at Blossom last weekend and were pleasantly surprised with the meal. It had been a year or two since the last time we were there and felt that the restaurant and the menu were slightly dated and had not returned since that time. The menu, while manageable in size, still included enough variety to satisfy the 11 year old to 78 year old diners in our group.
The appetizers of oysters, calamari and spinach/artichoke dip were tasty and adequate in portion size to share for the table. The main dishes ranged from Shrimp to Pizza to Gnocchi and all were created with obvious care and consideration of subtle variations in taste.
The waiters and staff were knowledgable and attentive even in a very crowded and busy setting.
All in all; a very nice evening out.
They have to be that way jerkwad. It is called the Naval WEAPONS Station, douche. Thinks before you speak next time. Better yet, save us all the bs and just shut up Ricky Retardo
I went to Jack's last year with my mom for the first time and we both liked it a lot. I have seen it advertised and talked about a lot over the years and then decided to visit. My mom loved the old antiques. It's definitely a new twist on hot dogs. But I don't like sweet potatoes so I didn't eat that. When you go, bring the kids and a camera!
I thank the City Paper for helping me find out about this place! Went there for breakfast this morning and it really hit the spot. It's in a very cute stand alone building and has a great atmosphere. Everything on the menu looked wonderful and included very fresh ingredients so it was hard to pick but we went with the eggs benedict over sweet potato biscuits that I read about here online and it was fantastic. We also got the Honey/Peanut Butter/Banana French toast which was a delite on the taste buds. It came with 2 large pieces of bread both were very thick and had a unique taste to them. I will certainly be back to try other breakfast and lunch items on the menu!
A bizarre but fun experience. the pho and spring rolls are delicious. the rest of the food is mediocre but better than the rest of what I've experience in Charleston as far as Vietnamese food.
Authentic, simple, and delicious.
Exposed brick w/hardwood floors throughout.... live music & plasma tv's ......good heavy bar food thats well priced. hmmmmm summerville needed this place bad
hi the world is negative enough.......when you find a good -kind place to be your hang out and its run well dont listen to anyone else. im older and not your average person but im a free spirit and this neighborhood watering hole is great. prices are right and quality is certainly there.i am an amputee and the staff makes me feel at home and respected as a person. Where else can the bartender always hit your drink and smile. Thanks Kristen.YOU HAVE A FAN IN ME AND I COME FROM MT.P.
The food is very good, but since they charge for tea refills, i don't go very often. It can get very pricey if you have a couple of refills of tea. You might as well go to lunch at Snob and get full service fine dining at the same price.
I went to Neil Jordan's for their Sunday brunch, and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The servers were timely and considerate, the food was delicious and presented well, and the atmosphere was pleasant. Although they can be a little pricey, Neil Jordan's offers a range of food and beverage choices that span from inexpensive to fine dining quality prices. I recommend this restaurant to anybody visiting or living in Charleston. The owners work hard to appease their customers, and are willing to take recommendations and critiques to improve their service.
My review appears previously, but I forgot to add stars. In short, this is my favorite new addition to the mid-priced restaurant selection downtown in the past couple of years. The kitchen still needs some work on consistency, but I find myself visiting frequently for the creative menu and preparations, which are rare in its price range.
I’ve had the turkey and the ham and brie paninis and both were great
We have needed a good French bakery downtown for years and now we have one. Best croissants in the area.
There will never again be any reason to go to Chuck E. Cheese's. Quyen/Party City has the same for-pay games but also:
1. A very big indoor play structure/tree-house/slide
2. A big, padded play floor for toddlers and crawlers
3. GOOD FOOD
The pho was indeed delicious, as was the vermicelli salad and the Rock'n'rolls. Service was leisurely but for once we weren't under the gun to get the kids fed... too busy having a lot of fun. Warning: it is a bit ghetto fab, but the kids certainly loved it and the food made up for it too.
