This came as a recommendation from a nearby gallery and met all expectations. From the cocktails prepared by Alicia onward it was a memorable meal. The bruschetta was divine and then the braised short ribs melted in your mouth. The beans and peppers added kick. At the end the vanilla gelato brought back memories of Florence. Oh by the way,...

For whatever reasons, we have not been to Fulton Five for quite some time, but we will not wait that long again. This relatively small restaurant has a low noise atmosphere that encourages normal volume dinner conversations. Great for bonding. My lamb was simply excellent and my wife's grouper was also outstanding. The server was polite although somewhat standoffish and... More

We booked this on-line a month in advance for our trip. It proved to be an exceptional find! We wanted to have a change from Southern food during our five day stay and found this could not have been more perfect! It is intimate with a touch of elegance. We ordered the special soup of the evening, Potato with Leeks,... More

We selected Fulton 5 based on their online wine listing; it is out of date and it needs to be reworked as there as there are many low rated wines on the list. We were told this was a romantic restaurant, but we had the misfortune of being there when there was a loud bridal party that made the dining... More

I really like the ambiance of this restaurant and the service was always really good. The servers made good recommendations and were eager to please. The restaurant is small and intimate and a good place to dine for a date night. The food was good- unique Italian dishes that you may not be able to find elsewhere. Some of the... More

Terrific preparation and presentation of a seafood inspired pasta dish. Great starter fungi salad and nice wine selection. Add in a great waiter and you get an awesome rating and a new loyal customer.

This isn't a tourist joint. Loved by the locals it is quaint and really good. Tough to get a reservation but worth it. Italian cuisine with good menu and wide wine selection. Friendly servers.

So many great seafood restaurants in Charleston, but we wanted a little something different. Chose this restaurant because it served Italian food. Weren't disappointed. Charming, romantic atmosphere. George our waiter was wonderful with suggestions & had a great personality. Prompt service & delicious food. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Nice break from the other restaurants whose offerings can get repetitive.

Fulton 5 was all that it promised. Beautiful setting, quaint dining room, excellent staff. The dining area was close and you could feel the warm positive energy in the room yet we could still talk comfortably across the table without raising our voices. The waiter was informative and knowledgeable, he made excellent suggestions without being pushy. The food was superior.... More
