This place rules! Great beers to try, free pretzels and very friendly bartenders. It's a very chill atmosphere and good for a nice conversation.
This place is like eating at a food truck. It's a small menu with trendy food that is a bit pricy for what it is and not that tasty. Save yourself some money and go to Five Loaves and get a salad and sandwich for the same price.
I have been attending the Charleston Area Tarot Association meetings for many years. This is a great way to learn more about the art of Tarot divination.
Great bar, great beers, great people. Great place to talk to friends over a beer without drowning in college testosterone.
The restaurant was nice and full and had a great atmosphere. The service at the bar started off great. Awesome wine by the glass and lots of traditional tapas. All of the food we had was awesome. The dates were crispy and tasty. Croquettes were the perfect crispness on the outside and lovely and runny on the inside. We also ordered pan con tomate ans were disappointed to see that it was already made. The enjoyable part of this dish is rubbing your own garlic and tomato on the bread. It was more of a bruschetta than the traditional dish with a tomato sauce (Italian style) on top than fresh tomato.
The weird part though was once our glass of wine was finished I wanted another one and couldn't get one. Both bartenders looked at my glass and they instead refilled our water twice, but never asked if we wanted another glass. They then spent time cleaning up the bar and refilling their water container instead of refilling people's wine glasses. Shame as the rest of the night was lovely. Oh well, we will try again, and hopefully I can enjoy two glasses of wine.
Still try going. Great food and the most authentic I have had in Charleston outside of Spain.
They have delicious chocolates, baked goods, coffees, and even baguettes; Where can I get a salami sandwich for myself and a blueberry dark chocolate bar for my wife and then two cups of coffee to wake us both up after? Christophe, that's where.
Oops, my previous review was suppose to reflect 5 stars and not 1. This place is awesome!
The Pluff Mud Porter and Dorchester Lite are my go to beers. Now they have the Follicle Brown in cans too, woohoo!
This is a great market that defines the meaning of sustainability by keeping it local. There are lots of vendors selling their amazing products in an easy to park, room to walk about, and fun atmosphere.
The price point on food and the quantities are pretty good. The lunch specials are priced really well. And yes, I like the fresh and made to order aspect of the food. Absolute thumbs up on the guacamole. Plus when it is not too crazy, Raul himself will come out and socialize with the patrons. It's definitely not the food from the frozen aisle of the store junk like La Ha or Los Arcos. The only critique I may have is at times the servers don't seem to be fully informed of all the items on the menu, i.e. ask a question and they might be able to answer, but more often than not it has been "let me go ask".
Best Mexican food in SC for supper reasonable pricing.
Staff is extremely attentive, fast and professional. Food portions are great size. Me and my mom had "fajitas for two to share" (Sizzling shrimp, chicken and pork with bell peppers + 6 warm tortillas side of fried beans and guacamole). Price 19$. We ended up taking some home and were full to max!!!! Awesome Margaritas and Daquries!
Delicious, awesome, and very nicely done food. Not a run-of-the-mill mexican restaurant. Most everything from Raul's kitchen is made there, including the salsas and taco tortillas. The guacamole is the best I've had from a restaurant. The Al Pastor is also way better than any place around. A must try.
A little hard to find, but its at the end of the block!
Too many "off nights" will eventually equate to a shut down. The average life of a new restaurant in this town is less than a year. About the national average. These guys better listen to their critics, as there are many good places in Chas. to spend your restaurant dollar.
Can't understand the review that said nothing special about this place. Must be something since the line was out the door when the six of us got there. Thanksfully we didn't have to wait too long. OUTSTANDING! This is some great food in a town that challenged when it comes to matching up to big city eating. We had the matzo ball soup and chopped liver and it was outstanding. Two of us had the corned beef, one has pastrami and another the cuban. It not only was fab but the food itself looks great like someone actually cared in the kitchen. Took some of the cheesecakes back with us and again OUTSTANDING. So glad this place is here.
I couldn't disagree more with this article. I love the food, atmosphere, service and drinks. All the food that I have has been excellent! And I guess if you want a cheap tequila drink with more bite there are places that will gladly pour. But I'd prefer to have a better, fresher margarita with better tequila.
Love, love, love Sushi Taro. We find this the best Sushi around, including downtown. A family run establishment with very creative sushi rolls at very reasonable prices. Hardly any cream cheese in sight, which is a huge relief! The family are always smiling and happy. They have great pricing on their wines and beers too. If you order a curry or stir fry, there can actually be too much meat in there, but I am sure most people will appreciate this. My favourite roll is called Crazy Tuna. It was on a special board once and now they will always make it for me - chock full of yummy tuna on the inside and topped off with spicy tuna on the top. Fresh, lovely and yummy! Try this place. Modern decor, friendly service and great prices. You will not regret it.
We love to eat lunch at Sermets, and for some reason it has always been on a Sunday. We love their food but for some reason their bartenders are terrible. We always sit at the bar, perfect for people watching on King Street. The bartenders are very unfriendly. Never greet you, never give you a wine list without asking, and seem very slow on service of drinks. I fully understand that they are also servicing service bar, but if Sunday lunch is always busy, then maybe an extra bartender? Didn't even get a thank you this time. It's a shame as the food is fresh and great tasting, but service and surly bartenders can keep me away.
One of the worst experiences I've had at any restaurant downtown. Went on a Saturday while shopping on King St. with a party of 5, and 3 of us had problems with our entree's. The fish I had was burnt on the underside, while a friend of mine had chicken that tasted raw and flavorless. Just awful in every respect and the management did not seem to much care when he came to our table, thinking we were a bunch of tourists he'd never see again. Little does he know we are all local foodies with a wide network of friends. They do not have a good reputation with locals is evident after talking to people about this, its evident they are out to grab the tourist shoppers on King St., and could care less if they come back.
They have some solid sushi as well as cocktails at O-Ku. They 'defenetly' do not have the best sushi in the Charleston area (that's what Kanpai is for ;) ), but if you know what you are ordering, you will not be disappointed with the food/cocktails at O-Ku. The service is very hit or miss.
