Re: “Charleston Music Hall

I agree with Mr Silver, this venue has sounded awesome for any show I've attended until this past October REK show. It was terrible. It was all bass and no vocals and we were in a primo front center balcony spot. I'm going to another show soon and hope the sound's not that bad.

Re: “Charleston Music Hall

Great location, not a bad seat in the house
But The Sound Board Is The Worst I've Heard Maybe He Just Doesn't Like Bluegrass Or Folk. The sound man can make or break a venue
I CAN'T GO BACK TO THE TORTURE

Re: “Virginia's on King

Our slider appetizers were very good. Our entrees were slightly overpriced and hugely underseasoned. The wait service was annoyingly mediocre. We're not food snobs, but geez, this place has ZERO personality.

Re: “Big Billy's Burger Joint

Hard to rate, here's why: First time we stopped in on a quiet day, the service was a little slow but food was fine, so we decided to revisit on a Friday night. The place was full, but we were seated quickly. We waited for about 5-7 minutes, then the waitress came over to take our drink order (clue #1). When she returned with just 2 waters she said "Ill be honest, I forgot what drinks you ordered" (clue #2). When she came back with our drinks, she took our order--and repeated it as we ordered it. As i watched the tables that she was assigned to it was clear she was totally 'in the weeds' but the host kept seating her section (4 additional tables while we waited for our food to arrive- clue #3). Our food arrived, but half of my date's order was wrong. She said she would go fix it and be right back. We began to eat, but sadly discovered both of our orders were cold. Cooks don't put up cold food to go to a table, it gets cold when wait staff let it sit in the window too long. The food was good, but would have been super had it been served hot. The 'wrong' part of my date's food never got fixed. Nichole (waitress) kept coming by & filling water/tea & saying, "Oh yeah, let me get the other part of your order" but it just never happened. When she came to drop off our check, she said "oh gosh, i never brought the other part of your meal! Do you want it to go?" When we said No, she went on to say "you can take it home & eat it". Um, again, No thanks, we wanted to eat it here, not home. She didnt even remove the unreceived food item off of the check. *** Owners please take note: good food can only keep a place afloat so long, when the service is bad, people won't return! It would be a shame to go out of business because of your servers' poor service.

Re: “Sweeney's

We came into to Sweeney's restaurant tonight for the first time and had the BEST service and the food was AMAZING! All four people in our party cleaned our plates completely with no left overs (which is never the case). The atmosphere was very cozy, CLEAN, and friendly. I already plan on going back later this week!

Re: “Cypress Lowcountry Grille

My husband and I stopped in to Cypress for a cocktail and an appetizer prior to our reservation at Blossom for Restaurant Week, the bartender had no problem expressing his negative opinion of restaurant week. I understand the discontent at having lower total sales therefore lower tips, but for the hour that my husband and I were at his bar we were the only customers so due to Restaurant Week, the bartender made a bonus $10 tip ($35 check) off of people that would not have been there on a normal Sunday evening. Every dollar counts, not just for those receiving the tips, but for those giving the tips as well.

Restaurant Week gives us a chance to try something different, and a good reason to treat ourselves. If you feel that the restaurant is not being properly showcased with the special menu, speak up. I have to believe that the star chefs of Charleston do not want their Restaurant Week menus to be their dirty little secrets. Restaurant Week is a chance for locals to get out and try something new, why not showcase your best dishes on these menus? I would not find a smaller portion of your award winning dish unreasonable when the special three course menu is the same price as a regular entree.

Re: “Blossom

Restaurant Week has won again! We went to Blossom Sunday night for the special menu and, in addition, tried the gnocchi. The food was delicious and our service was excellent. Thanks Rick, and Blossom for a wonderful dining experience!

Re: “Triangle Char and Bar

My girlfriend and I went to Triangle in Mt P on Friday night and had a wonderful dinner. It was very crowded but we were greeted within seconds and had our choice of sitting inside or on the patio. Our server was very attentive, plus two different managers came by at different points to ask if everything was good. But the real reason I came here to make a post was the food. As a quasi-vegetarian, it's not easy to find real, healthy options around town that are also yummy. Triangle is one of the exceptions. They have a plethora of delicious, health-conscious menu items. In addition to the excellent service and wonderful food, the prices are some of the best you're going to get. Charleston has a gazillion great restaurants to choose from but I can honestly say that Triangle is in my top five, maybe even top 3.

Re: “Bàsico

Tried out this place and enjoyed it. I indulged in the large tequila selection and the enchiladas were great. I highly recommend the chorizo paired with a moscow mule to bring out the true flavor. It's a refreshing change of pace from the refried scene.

Re: “Circa 1886

I took my wife to Circa 1886 for our anniversary and had the best time. As we live in Atlanta, I always recommend Circa 1886 to travelers. People say that it is off the beaten path but I am a believer in "The Road Less Traveled" - and it made all the difference!

Re: “Bàsico

This was a restaurant week ripoff. A friend tipped me off to this place, and described it as a sort of tapas bar that had really good selection of smaller foods. The tacos were excellent, and it was a good time. I reviewed the restaurant week menu, and thought it would be worth a try.

Last night I went out to a relatively uncrowded place on the public side. The end result, poor service, decent food, and an expensive check. By far, the service was the worst thing going here. Three times I ran out of water. This place is small, and there are not many tables. There should be no excuse for not getting a refill. Having to ask for a refill is in bad form. I had to do this twice. The appetizers were ok, but not thing to write home about. The main course, we got the taco appetizer and the enchiladas. When you see four tacos on a menu for a main course, you would assume that they would indeed be tacos. This was not the case. The tacos were the size of a mason jar lid. Estimate 3" diameter, and these were "tacos". While some were good, they were definitely not mind blowing, and not at all filling. My enchiladas were okay, but nothing mind blowing. For our dessert, the churros were good, but again not mind blowing.

This resulted in a check of around $45 and at best I would say we received $30 of food. The service was terrible, I can't recommend this place to anyone. Other wait staff were decent, from what I could overhear they did a fine job. Even with that being removed, the food was overpriced for what we paid. We won't be back. I suggest you stay away. If you do intend to go, be prepared to fight for parking as a result of your efforts.

Re: “Jestine's Kitchen

In Dec. I was in S. C. and by accident I found "JESTINE"s. There was a parking space on the side of the restaurant but the sign said, "no parking 2 - 7 p m". It was after 7 so I parked there. I asked inside if they thought it was O K if I parked there. The Manager said, "Will, you may or may not get a ticked". So I went to move my car and the Manager came out with me. He asked if I saw the white truck parked down the street, I said, "yes", he told me to take that spot as soon as the truck moved. I asked how he knew it was going to move. He said, "I have the keys in my hand". What a graceious thing to do if we all could just be nicer to others it would be a better world. Now that's Southern Hospitality and he is a real Southern Gentleman. Thank you for that unusual experience. Jestine's is a fun place to be and the food is good also. Thank you!
