I really like the spot. They have great food and a terrific atmosphere.
Finally got out here Saturday night......Damn!! Actually the best burgers I've had in Charleston and you've got to try the Sloppy Fries. Only glitch we had was wife insists her beef is destroyed and the color of shoe leather. When I told the server that she didn't like the Medium doneness, he apologized (unnecessary), took it back to the kitchen, returned with it shortly, apologized again and offered to replace it if it still wasn't right. It was perfect, the service, especially for a burger joint, was friendly and over-the-top the food was exceptional and, by comparison, if some of the prices charged for Downtown burgers are justified, then this place is the best bargain around.
So we've established for certain that Ryan Leaf owns this place?
Maybe we went on a bad night but the Calamari, fish fry and the basil linguine were all flavorless. I've had better pasta from a box! On the other hand I've had a great brunch experience, so who knows.
Leaf Restaurant catered my son's Rehearsal Dinner in April 2013 for 70 people including several small children who were allowed to order from the children's menu. I worked with Pierre Espossey to plan the event and unlike other venues in Charleston, Leaf & Pierre expressed interest in providing the atmosphere and menu that would make for a great kick off to my son's wedding weekend. Thanks and I recommend Leaf Restaurant to any event planner or person wanting quality service and food in a great atmosphere.
leaf is far and away our favorite place to eat in ctown the staff and owners go out of their way to make it our #1 place when we visit from illinois basil leaf is my wifes favorite please don't change a thing on menu can't wait for march 2014 when we return
Their Basil Leaf Linguine has sauce that is way, way too creamy.
It sucks balls.
This is my favorite Summerville restaurant. I have never had anything bad there. The customer service is great as well. Great soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts.
I agree with another reviewer about this being a great "go-to" place. If you have people in town or a group for lunch or dinner its a nice, inexpensive place to go. Plus they have great service. I was there this weekend (and I go a lot) and when my food came out, randomly the ham was missing from my ham bocadillo. I wasn't upset, I could tell it was an honest mistake and was happy to eat my truffle fries while they fixed it. The waitress took it off the bill without us even asking. And she removed our friend's beer b/c he didn't' care for it. Completely unnecessary, but appreciated. Those type of touches in service is what makes it such a go-to place for people in town.
Cade Style was awesome! Blues, jazz, Motown, our feet were tappin' to the music while we joined in singing to old familiar songs. Great performance.

good food, but too crowded now. Also, sad to say the owner, though Irish, has NO idea how to cook a proper scone!
We love it, great food and good prices for lunch. To many places now are overcharging for lunch but I can get a bag of chips and a sandwich for 8 or so dollars. I can get it delivered too!
Very Slow delivery and they never get my orders right. I think i need to find a new place to get delivery.. Plus they dont give much to eat.
Five Loaves in Mt. Pleasant has moved a few doors down in the same shopping center. The new space is larger and brighter, but with the high ceiling and concrete floor it is very noisy. There is a divider toward the back of the restaurant and sitting behind it is a little better.
We met a friend at 11:45. It was busy and we took the last booth behind the divider. The server came promptly with menus and took our drink order, returned with drinks and took our food order. Then we waited. And waited. And waited. I checked my watch and it was 12:25. Being generous we had waited at least 20 minutes to that point.
The server was refilling glasses at a table next to ours and noticed me. She came to apologize for the wait and said the kitchen got hit with a huge to go order. At 12:40 we finally got our food, which was at least a 30 to 35 minute wait.
While the food and service were okay, management failed horribly and created a poor experience. Taking an order so large it ties up the entire kitchen for 30 minutes and leaves a restaurant full of people sitting without food is simply stupid.
...Very friendly atmosphere...great chicken tenders...good sweet tea...Chris Tidestrom does an excellent job on Thursday nights, at the open mic event, and the open mic scene will certainly grow rapidly as the summer season comes upon us. I have found the staff to be totally honest and polite...sometimes, maybe some people are served based upon their attitudes...and what they deserve...so Karma serves it up...
Every time we have had Black Bean deliver to us they always forget several items from our order and we never get a receipt as well. Worst delivery. Always getting the order wrong. Called back to tell them and they just put me on hold and I've already been waiting over 10 minutes. Enjoy their food but getting it delivered is just a complete waste and a nightmare.
Love it!!! When it comes to fast food...your options are usually pretty limited to low-quality/low-grade food. Persimmon is not only fast, but has an incredible array of options that are healthy and fresh. The soup happy hour is a great deal too on the way home from work.
Horrible service. Almost 1.5 hours for dinner. Every time is a long wait. Wish we had a better pub in West Ashley
I love going through the drive-thru at BBC, but the service inside the restaurant has been awful on the 3 occasions I've eaten there. I don't mind laid-back service, but in one visit, my waitress forgot multiple drinks, didn't put my order in at the same time as my dining companions', and wasn't at all apologetic. In an attempt to rush my food out, the kitchen delivered my "sautéed" fish almost entirely raw. To be fair, they did comp my meal - but I don't think I'll risk eating in, again.
