This was our first time here. We had heard very good things about it. The restaurant is located in the old warehouse section of Charleston, down from the Farmer's Market and behind the Baseball Park. The décor is wood and bricks with a lot of seating around the bar area, and some alcoves made to look like barrels for more private dining. So if you are making a reservation and want to sit with others, ask to sit near the bar. If you want a more private experience, ask for one of the alcove. We had an alcove and enjoyed it.
The menu reminded us of the few other higher priced restaurants in the area. It is ala carte. It had a nice selection of unique appetizers, soups and salads. The entrees ranged from about $15 to $35 and included pasta, chicken, seafood, pork and steaks.
You can go to their website to see the full menu.
We were also given separate pages of desserts, wines, mixed drinks and beers. I did not mind this because it was interesting to go over all the choices. The entrees all sounded so good, it was hard to choose.
We decided on the lobster bisque and the salmon entrée. The salmon was the best I have eaten in a long time. The outer part was crunchy and well seasoned.The inside was very tender. It was served with a pumpkin or sweet potato puree (cannot remember), risotto and Brussel sprouts. All excellent.
Why only 4 stars? Not because of the service, which was very friendly and comfortable. It was because of the Lobster bisque. It tasted good, but where was the lobster? We could find none in either of our dishes. Even a few pieces of celery would have been a help. Instead we had bisque with a seafood flavor. If lobster is too expensive to put in the bisque, I suggest you make a seafood bisque so there is at least some flounder ot tilapia in it.
We will go there again. Perhaps a different soup next time.
