OpenTable Diner (Washington DC)

Best meal I have had in a long time, new food along with traditional food. Very friendly and competent staff. They know their wine and Bourbon.

Every moment of our visit to Charleston was perfect. From the initial greeting to the service to the food and wine to our interaction with Chef Wolf, there were no discordant notes.

Staff was very attentive, making sure everything was perfect. They even took care of calling the valet as we were leaving.

Charleston has always been my go to for special occasions as it is a high dining venue that is very expensive - and in the past worth the price. However, considering my meal last night, not so much.

A few dishes were excellent, but the rest were mediocre. Many of the dishes were under seasoned or lacking flavor complexities expected from this type of restaurant. Concepts were great - execution was a fail. It seemed to me that the kitchen was going through the motions without the passion.

Some catastrophic errors included very tough lobster in the Rich Lobster Soup with Curry, fishy and off-putting Black Sea Bass and the Grilled Elk Tenderloin (correctly served rare but too chewy with a sauce not bold enough to make up for the meat). I ordered an off menu seared diver scallops - which was excellent except for the topping of fired leek strands that got stuck in my throat because the were not chewable so the strands just went down whole. Keep a glass of water close by if you order this dish.

We ordered wine and decided on a Chateauneuf du Pape because that was recommended by the chef and waiter. In the wine list the Chef recommended a 2006. They had two on the menu. One was $450 and the other $1,095 per bottle. There should be a variety of recommendations at all price points. The sommelier was pleasant and we settled on a bottle for around $125.

What was clearly bothersome was that we ordered bottled still water, and when finished it was quickly replaced with another bottle - without asking if we wished to purchase another one. It was just charged on the check. I didn't make an issue because when your spending that much money - what's another $6 - and we stayed until we finished the bottle.

Where the food seems to have declined since my last visit to Charleston - the service remains excellent. Andrew, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and food and wine pairings. The service staff was also pleasant, efficient and professional.

It's hard to say anything new about Charleston that hasn't already been said. The service and food were impeccable. It's great to see Cindy Wolf in her natural environment doing what she does so well. A beautiful space, wait staff with well curated manners and gorgeous presentation.

Hands down the best restaurant in Baltimore and the entirety of the state. There is not another restaurant I can recommend unless you are willing to travel to New York City. But even then I would recommend you go to Charleston. Phenomenal food and word class service. Ask for Andrew when you are seated; his knowledge of the food, drinks, ingredients, everything is top notch. We are always extremely happy whenever we can visit Charleston and we are looking forward to the next time we get to go.
