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

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

Great dessert selection. Was sad to see they did not continue their liquor ice cream pairings with their desserts. They were delicious.

This was our first time going to Sea/&/Salt. We had wanted to visit for a while now and it did not disappoint! Chef Blake created a delicious combination with the Surf & Turf (red wine braised short rib, scallops, broccolini, risotto)! The scallops were cooked perfectly and the short rib was so tender. The wine demi glaze was awesome! Loved... More
