My daughter 25th birthday was a great treat me for our first trip to peninsula grill. No disappointment here. The meals were good, the service was impeccable and the dessert... well it is all about the dessert here. Coconut cake!!! Though we also had the chocolate bread pudding that they had for restaurant week. This was a good dessert. No... More

This is a truly lovely restaurant, tucked into one of the older and classier hotels in Charleston. The walls are hung with apparent colonial decor and the dining room is quiet and gracious. Service is superb and so is the food. My trout was one of the best iterations I've eaten and all three of the desserts we tried --... More

The food and service were both excellent. However, I'm leaving 4 stars instead of 5 because the prices are about 15% to 20% higher than comparable Charleston restaurants with similar menus and service. Their prices are reflective of restaurants like Circa 1886, The Ocean Room, and Charleston Grill but their menu is not in the same league. Also the atmosphere... More

Excellent romantic place for that special occasion! Spent my birthday dinner celebration with Peninsula Grill. My boyfriend had an option to order a center piece bouquet of flowers waiting at our table (great addition to the nice ambience). Very attentive wait staff (our waitress, Charlie, was great!). Delicious food with nice presentation! Bread came out in a sweetgrass basket. Also,... More

My girlfriend and I came to Charleston to celebrate our two year anniversary and decided to cap off our retreat by going to Peninsula Grill because I'd seen so many great reviews for it. I can't say enough good things about our experience. Our server (Patrick) was knowledgeable and impeccable. The ambiance was amazing especially considering there was no music... More

Tripadvisor ranks this restaurant 10th in Charleston. We didn't try the nine above it, but I can't believe they are all better. Peninsula Grill is a formal, fine dining restaurant that is not stuffy, but instead relaxed and delightful. We had the Ham & Field Pea Stew, the Chef's Field Green Salad, shared a Flounder appetizer, and then finished with... More

I ate there each morning and the breakfast was great. We were Ina hurry most times on the way to a meeting and she was able to get us out the food to make it on time. No issues and food was good!

Nice ambiance and elegant understated setting, the she crab soup and the coconut cake were outstanding however the trout was bland and disappointing, the service was very good but the prices were rather expensive. I'm not sure I would return in the future.

I am sorry that your Peninsula Grill experience didn't meet or exceed your expectations. I am thrilled that the service was excellent and that you enjoyed the She Crab Soup and the Ultimate Coconut Cake. Unfortunately that does not make up for a poor showing on the trout. I assure you that we are a much better restaurant and hope... More

Beautiful room. Very professional staff. Excellent food (osso buco, baked oysters, she crab soup). My only minor complaint is that the coconut cake, which they have extensively commercialized, is not quite as good as it used to be. I would definitely return, but probably get a different dessert.
