I've spent many years in many places. The one consistant thing I do is look for food (pardon the mistake of not calling it "quisine"). Although I usually have something negative to say about a restaurant, I can't seem to find a single complaint about Slightly North of Broad. The service was impeccable. However, service has almost nothing to do with the actual food. I took the first bite of my meal and melted into the coastline, the south, and one of the best Chef's in the world. I believe food has many different purposes. In order for me to take one bite of food and have it evoke flavor, origin, and an unique taste is unheard of. Slightly North of Broad and Chef Frank Lee have accomplished something that is award winning and special. For a chef that is continually gaining fame and respect, Frank Lee seems to be grounded within his family and roots. It appears that no amount of recognition or fame will change who he is. Fame doesn't wear itself well on Chef Lee. It's my belief that he performs best, and is most happy, when he is sweating it out in a small Charleston kitchen. He remains willing to give persons a chance in his kitchen. He will expect more from you than you believe you can achieve. Due to this philosophy, he makes persons equal to mole hills turn into persons made of mountains. Bravo to such a person. Chef Frank Lee has my vote!

The only truly consistently great restaurant in all categories: food, service, and atmosphere that exists in the city of Charleston. Over nearly 30 years, I have tried them all.

Frank Lee and his team are so talented. Justin, Trevor, Jason, Stacy and the staff are wonderful. Go there now. Charleston's best!

I only gave them 4 stars because they took their delicious pad thai off the lunch menu.

It was wonderful.

Hmmm, putting no stars had no effect on the 5 stars this restaurant is getting. Hopefully putting one star will drop their rating to where it belongs!

Am I missing something with SNOB? There are a few items on the menu that are great, but quite a lot that are over salted and bland. Also, why would you NEVER change the menu? Few specials a night don't count as a menu change. Summer and winter do not need the same items on the menu. Is the chef losing his steam? Can't be bothered? Knows how to cook a few things and sticks with it?

I found the restaurant enticing and I had a cheeseburger at lunch that was quite acceptable.

A while back I ordered the dry-aged NY Strip ("Special of the Night"). Dry aging forms a kind of a rind on the whole piece and must be trimmed before cooking/serving. Not that night. Impossible to cut even with a steak knife. Back it went to the kitchen and apologies were forthcoming for the oversight. I make it a practice not to give the kitchen a second chance with a replacement or substitute meal. My dining partner thoroughly enjoyed whatever it was she had ordered (probably a veggie platter).

Went to SNOB for lunch last week. I had read about the Pad Thai somewhere (CCP?) and decided to order it. Bland. It didn't have the punch of spices and flavors that I'm used to for this dish. The server noticed that I wasn't enjoying it and suggested I try the sesame crusted tuna, which turned out to be much, much better. The service was excellent here, with prompt drink refills and concise answers to any questions I had.
