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

We never miss Fulton Five when we're in Charleston, and we've been dining there for 14 or 15 years. It always delights us, with its charming and intimate ambiance, small professional staff who really, really know the menu and the wine list, and authentic dishes with fresh ingredients. Even the crusty bread and fruity olive oil they place at your... More

Great meal starting with even the most simplest of things, the bread and the olive oil. A nice brunello went well with the lamb chops followed by some refreshing gelato.

Had dinner at the Fulton Five after stumbling upon it before going on a walking tour. We could smell the delicious food from outside so we thought we'd give it a shot. It did not disappoint! I had the beef short ribs and my boyfriend had the gnocchi special of the night. We shared tiramisu for dessert alongside espresso and... More

We have had dinner here several times over the years! The restaurant is inimate as well as the bar.The food at this restaurant is always excellent. We shared the Mussels, husband had the Veal Chop and I had the Lamb Chops - all cooked to perfection. For dessert was the in-house prepared Tiramisu. The wine list was easy to navigate.... More

We ended up in Charlestown by "accident" and remembered Fulton Five from two years ago on our last visit to Charleston All we could see was how happy everyone inside was enjoying the experience. Our dinner tonight delivered an incredible dinner and great service. Appetizers like the wilted spinach salad with truffle dressing,pasta shrimp tagliatelle and lamb chops were superb.
