For some reason I did not know this restaurant (frequent out of town visitor) but, it is wonderful. Attractive space, wonderful service and a fabulous meal. Perfection! Will be returning and highly recommend this "hidden gem".

This place is a hidden gem indeed. Tucked away in Charleston's Cannonborough/Elliotborough neighborhood, this place never fails to dissappoint. First off the wine is spectacular, I have never had a bad or even average glass of wine here, it's all amazing. Second, their food is...More

I took my gf on 7/11 and was not impressed. Had basically one waiter running the floor and ran out of drink for 5 to 10 min a couple of times. The kicker was when a bug strolled across the table (candle lit dining I...More
