Made reservations for dinner and asked to be seated in the courtyard. Unfortunately, they could not accommodate that. It didn't end up being a big deal though as the inside restaurant is very elegant. The velvet walls help with the acoustics, so even though we were seated very close to another couple, we could still talk and hear each other, and couldn't hear the couple beside us. Service was superb! I got scallops which were cooked perfectly, and my friend got the lobster. She said that it was fantastic as well.
The best part of the meal was the Coconut Cake. Layer upon layer of cake and creamy filling with toasted coconut coating the outside. If you like coconut DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT GETTING THIS DESSERT! You get a very large piece, so either share, or plan on taking some with you. Very nice wine list with something for everyone.

Dear DianaBWakeForest,

We are glad you and your friend were able to spend a nice evening at Peninsula Grill and while we could not accommodate outside you still enjoyed our dining room, service and cuisine. The velvet walls are not only a striking feature of the restaurant but do indeed help us with the noise level and yes, we agree, the coconut cake is something you should not leave without trying!

We ate at several restaurants in Savannah and Charleston and this was my favorite. I enjoyed the white table cloths, elegance, fine service and very good food. It's a pretty place -- the kind of place that makes you feel special. The clientele were nicely dressed also.

This restaurant was wonderful with a beautiful setting and excellent food! My husband had the crudo appetizer and a steak - he thought the crudo was the best part. I had a salad and the scallops and they were both superb! We, of course, had to try their famous coconut cake and it was impressive (not as good as my Grandmother's but then no others are :) We ate in the outdoor courtyard since the weather this June has been mild and it was an overall great experience!
