Salt The Grill at The Ritz-Carlton

Join us for local and regional favorites served with gracious Southern hospitality. Attire is resort sophisticated. Rated AAA Five-Diamond. Reservations recommended.

Reviewed By wmartin222 - Fort Mill, South Carolina

We went with another couple to Salt for dinner two weeks ago. We have eaten at many fine dining restaurants over the years and this ranks as one of our best experiences by far.
The service was top notch. Every part of our meal was good starting with the bread and butter--adding in samples of their special salts. We tried a shrimp/grit appetizer that was quite good--a little smokey but delicious never the less. I had a grass fed tenderloin and it was delicious. Wife had a grouper dish I believe. It was also quite good. We finished with a soufflé that was just absolutely amazing. Every aspect of our meal was first class. We would heartily recommend anyone who likes fine dining go to Salt.

Pi Infinite Combinations

Pizza Delivery, dine in, or take out. Self service Pizza Joint.

Reviewed By OH43235 - Columbus, Ohio

We went to Pi while visiting Amelia Island for a business conference. Thanks to the great reviews Pi had online, we enjoyed some amazing pizza!! The cost was just the perfect balance of thin but chewy, and as they advertise- infinite ways to make it your own. You order either a very large (advertised as 10 inches) slice or a whole pizza that is 20 inches. They have some interesting combinations ( no substitutions) as well as salads and even wine. The best part is the quiet little courtyard with a water fountain. If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely stop back here!

Le Clos

Reviewed By delospoppy - New York City, New York

My husband and I went to Le Clos on the recommendation of a close friend. He had eaten there three years ago. The restaurant has been around for 23 years. We could tell it was popular with return customers by the way they were greeted when they arrived. We were very excited to go and very disappointed by the time we left. We ordered the steak and fries, which was good, and the special fish of the day, which was cod. It was unfortunately pretty bad. A very small piece with a butter cream sauce over mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were possibly the worst I've ever had. They tasted like they were made with water. Didn't even eat them. Our server raved about the Caesar salad. It was just a Caesar salad. We also had a wonderful bottle of Sancere wine and there was one glass left in the bottle. My husband ordered a glass of red wine to drink as he finished his steak and our server poured it into the glass he had been drinking the Sancere from. We were so surprised and just looked at each other. No new/clean glass for the red wine. This hadn't happened to us in years. We won't be going back.

Met at David's Restaurant with "Concours d'Elegance friends last week for another extraordinary dinner this year at this extraordinary eatery! The SEAFOOD PAPPARDELLE PASTA was generous with seafood in a really delicious creamy sauce, absolutely Divine; guys said their STEAKS were perfect. Our innkeepers at the Williams House told us about the ALASKAN KING CRAB on the menu (straight from the Bering Sea aboard the Deadliest Catch boat!) -- their detailed description of the size and sweet succulence of the crab meat had our mouths watering - maybe take on next year! The staff was professional, attentive, efficient & pleasant. It was fun to look around and see some famous car celebrities! We look forward to David's every year and highly recommend it.
