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.

This is a hidden gem in Charleston! Stumbled upon it a few years ago on a visit and have been back every trip. The food fantastic and I usually go with the specials as they always have an amazing soup and fish special that does not disappoint. It's hit or miss at the bar, so if you want to make... More

We visit Charleston on a regular basis and always seem to visit the same places. This trip we made sure we tried a few restaurants what were new to us. Fulton 5 was one of them. Service was very good for our party of eight. Everything flowed well and came out together which can sometimes be a problem with a... More

We have been dining at Fulton Five for years on special occasions. The ambiance is cozy and refined and the noise is always moderate so you can converse easily. The bar scene is modest with limited seating. The drinks (Martinis and Manhattans are our favourites are outstanding. We believe the wait staff is the best in Charleston -- they never... More

Old style Italian restaurant in the most complimentary sense. Good pasta and ambiance. Nice option versus more trendy choices in the area.

We tried to order takeout. We called ahead and They said they would do take-out. We left our hotel and went to the restaurant and they refused to do take-out. What do people do who don't finish their dinners? Don't they have doggy bags? We travel all over the world and spend a lot of money. The best restaurants in... More

Returned to FULTON 5 after a two year hiatus. Found the excellence was still there. Tried the grouper special. Just outstanding!! Friends had the bolognese. They raved about it. Dessert was pear bread pudding. Amazing. Great service. Need to call ahead. Place was packed.
