The food is all to share and was fantastic, especially the tacos! The service was great, very helpful staff. The music volume however was nearly unbearable. I'm not sure why but venues seem to think turning up the volume will make up for the reduced crowd numbers. It doesn't. And it makes it very hard to hear your own table's conversation. Definitely a great venue and good food, just turn the volume down a smidge and it would be 5 star all the way!

This is my new favourite place in Sydney! Best cauliflower wings I’ve ever had. Perfect fries. Delicious cocktails. Lovely people. And it’s dog-friendly outside!

Most amazing cocktail I have come across and I have been to my fair share.

The food was also amazing. Although one of the owners is a Roosters fan, they get away with it being so great!

Delish cocktails and a great share menu! Had the fried chicken, cauli wings (great blue cheese sauce), pork ribs (great house pickle) and the brussel sprouts! Made sure we left room for the brownie too. Was great to see the team taking COVID restrictions very seriously and made us feel comfortable eating out.

Intimate, buzzy, good atmosphere. Our medium sized group was a mixture of dietary requirements and thought it was going to be a challenge however The Charleston menu catered for all specific requests from the herbivore to the carnivore so we left very satisfied. Love the cocktails and the service was tops; attentive and friendly. We will be back!

The Charleston is a great little spot for lunch, dinner or even just a few afternoon cocktails. We were pleasantly surprised on our first visit and will be back again soon!
