Had an amazing! We shared the cheese board and it was great! I had the small plate crab cakes and they were great! One friend had pimento BLT and another friend had the best shrimp and grits I have ever had. Will definitely go back!!

Friends and I went for lunch during the holidays. The food was delicious and the wait staff couldn't be better. However, if you order wine, be sure to check the wine list. The house wine is high-end price wise. There is a good choice but can be misleading.

Well prepared meal! No better food in Columbia! There are fancier places but this cuisine beats them all. Thank-you Chef Blake!

The waiter took great care of us and treated us with attention even though we ordered relatively cheap menu items. This is a fancy place, don't go there if you're on a budget! Presentation was beautiful and the food tasted great.

I went with friends tonight for the chef's tasting with wine pairings. We were completely impressed. Chef Blake spent time with us beforehand and during the many courses to ascertain our food preferences and make sure we were enjoying everything. The food was innovative without trying too hard. Everything-from the lobster bisque cappuccino to the spotted bass and the short... More

We held my husband's retirement dinner at Nonnah's, and it was a great success. We had 77 attendees - for happy hour (drinks and appetizers) in the main restaurant, and for dinner in the special occasion hall. Maggie helped plan the evening, which went smoothly and beautifully. Chef Blake Faires offered us wine tastings, to select the wines (very fun,... More

Attended a concert at Colonial life center. Girls night. We wanted to eat at Pearls but the wait was too long. We walked by this place told them we had about 45 min to spare. Seated us immediately (5 of us) and had our food quickly. We all ordered something different and we were all really pleased! The staff was... More

Chef Blake is a true genius, best execution and presentation in the Southeast. We had the 5 course chef's dinner and it was beyond our expectations for Columbia or even anywhere in Charleston. Not to be missed. *****

We recently enjoyed dinner and it was outstanding! I had the brined pork chop with macaroni and blue cheese slaw while my husband had the scallops and risotto. We both absolutely loved our choices! The meat was extremely tender and the sides had their own special tastes! We went on a Thursday night and our server was terrific! We had... More

Ok so the establishment I went to was on Lincoln street in Columbia SC. Anyway, I had the Chocolate Raspberry Fantasy. This was a meal in itself. So decadent and flavorful. The raspberry jam was divine. Cake was moist, melted in your mouth. For $8.60, you get a big chunk of cake and is so worth it. I will go... More
