Obvious shill above, this place gets one star for despicable marketing tactics.
It' quite interesting how at midnight on November 6th your "hottest bartender" was down 300 votes yet still seemed to win. Good to know the winner of Charleston's hottest bartender is predetermined.
jestine's kitchen is not closed
I was a regular. Not any longer. Worst customer service ever. showed up at 5:25 PM for happy hour on the rooftop. parked in the Stars valet parking. told the bartender that we were parked there and the valet had not shown up yet. he said no problem. had dinner at the downstairs bar. finished at 7:05PM. The Stars valet had called parking enforcement and ticketed my car for $45. Valet manager said he came in and asked if the car belonged to a patron. stars manager then tells me to bad he is not responsible for the valet (who works for Stars) or the city. Will never go back again. plenty of other great dining with great customer service.
Not worth the money, won't be back.
I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).
My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."
Overall: big fan.
The real deal in Charleston Metro ! First, this is the ONLY DELI THAT PREPARES ITS OWN ROAST BEEF, ROAST TURKEY AND CORNED BEEF ON PREMISES. Hot Corned Beef is THE BEST WITHIN 822 miles [NYC]. Secondly, the portions are so large, it is not unusual to see folks rewrapping 1/2 sandwich for later.
Nearby Southern Season Deli and its piggish ownership took over the parking lot but patrons of MOZZO have not been deterred. They keep streaming in for lunch through to 4pm closing. So. Season Deli charges the same or more for sandwiches less than half the size + certainly of much lower quality.
MOZZO bread & salads are fresh-made. MOZZO ROCKS !!
We went to The Southerly early one week day evening to avoid witnessing a kitchen under pressure. We ordered several signature dishes [ according to the waitperson ]. The ambience, furnishings, and waitpersons' uniforms speak upscale. The general presentation seems to convey southern cooking with proprietary treatments. Our order included 2 Budweisers. We also ordered Butternut Squash Soup, BBQ Chips, Roasted Beets, Fresh Fish Catch of The Day, Pork & Beans, and Buttermilk Fritters. The service pace was moderate -- not prompt. The dishes served were between warm and hot. Quality was good, though not remarkable. What struck us was Okra Grill up the street can generate soup and entree equally as good -- without the upscale ambience -- for 1/3rd the price. Our evening cost $103.19 for 2 with tax and 20% tip. If folks want this nature of food there are better places like Vickery's which will cost 70% the price. OR, go to Langdon's where the food is much better, the ambience is slightly nicer, and the prices are comparable. The Southerly is a nice old ladies tea room with ramped up prices. Not recommended.
Best Pizza I have EVER had (besides when living in Rome!)
I shared a couple of pizzas with two friends recently and they were intersting artisan pizzas and the setting at the big tables was nice. I will go again - price was on higher side but all and all I found it to be a good experience.
