We were in Charleston to celebrate our anniversary. Our B and B recommended this place but I also read a number of positive reviews before hand. They did not disappoint. It is a small restaurant which includes a bar in the same room. We had early reservations as we had tickets for a show at 7. I can't remember exactly... More

We hosted a 20th birthday dinner for our daughter in the private dining room upstairs. The food was delicious. Our waiter, Damon, was outstanding. We strongly recommend this restaurant.

A short walk from the Mills House Wyndham Grand hotel, Fulton 5 is an outstanding restaurant, with an Italian flavor. The wait staff is excellent, attentive and helpful. The hostess is as friendly as friendly can be (I think that's a dangling participle). Food is fit-for-foodies and wine list is exceptional with good selections in all price ranges.

Outstanding food and decor in a hidden gem down a small street off King Street. With 75 plus restaurants in the downtown area and seemingly more monthly try Fulton Five. This is a local place as many eat/drink at the bar, superb food, and service, best meal we had during our stay. Many many hotels push the big names in... More

Everyone in our party had a nice dinner here, and the service and atmosphere are quite nice. Two of us, while greatly enjoying the pasta dish we ordered, experienced some heartburn/indigestion later that night. Not sure what they put in that dish, but we'd go back again anyway - it was delicious.

With all the fabulous restaurants in Charleston, this is still my favorite. Whether it's a quiet, romantic dinner or a celebration with friends, it can't be beat. Tonight at our table we had a great beet salad, creamy mushroom bisque, sautéed group over orzo with lump crab and tomato in a shrimp butter. Amazing. We were too full from dinner... More

Our favorite restaurant in Charleston. Excellent,creative Italian food served by a well trained staff. We visit Charleston about once a month usually dine here. Consistent quality with fresh ingredients.Its small size ( fewer than fifty patrons) adds to its charm. A relatively large menu with daily specials. This would be an excellent restaurant anywhere .

It's been three years, since we last visited Charleston and made certain to return to one of the most intimate restaurants in town, Fulton Five. It is not a tourist trap and is really a special find just a few steps off of King Street. The food is excellent and they also have smaller portions of some entree items.

Visited with friends for dinner. Reservations are a must as this is a very small venue with seating at tables and at the bar, Parking is the usual Charleston hassle and no valet is available. Arrived on time and was seated by the very distracted hostess who needs to learn to put a smile on her face. Our waitress was... More

Unfortunately, I can't provide a review of the cuisine, but I can state that their phone reservation process is flawed and aggravating. I called at noon for a reservation the next evening, and left my request on the machine as directed. However, no one returned my call. I called back several hours later and was told they would return my... More
