My wife and I eat occasionally at the starlight. It rarely disappoints. This week I had the blue fin tuna appetizer and it was TO DIE FOR! It was raw with pistachios and a very light glaze/sauce? The Oysters Rockefeller was also very tasty. My entree was just OK but it was probably just a bad choice for me, stepped... More

The nice thing about this cafe is it's right across the street from the public parking lot ....2hrs free parking! The food here was good, I ordered the steak and Frits with a bowl of soup. The soup was tasty but the steak was a bit salty and lots of fat/marbling. It is a nice place to meet up for... More

Good food, nice atmosphere. Willing to make accommodations for dietary preferences. Cheesy grits with shrimp was excellent (doesn't need the bacon that dish comes with but they'll leave it off if you ask). Very limited selection of wines by the glass (as in two choices - red or white)

Our favorite place in Greenville!! Great staff and wonderful drinks and a varied menu with lots of delicious choices. Anytime we go out, this is where we want to go and haven't found better food and atmosphere anywhere. I wish we still lived in Greenville so we could go more often.

The reviews of Starlight cafe were good ones, and my close friend is in med school near there. I ordered a gift card as a birthday gift and was told it would be delivered in 3 days. I am now 10 days out, no card, manager isn't taking phone calls and I am probably going to have to seek a... More

The service was good. Menu selection was a bit limited but varied and interesting. Drinks were very good. Beer and wine selection was good. What sets this restaurant apart on this visit was the Steak Frites. Three of us ordered this dish. All of us declared this to be the best steak that we've ever eaten! Taste, texture, and degree...

Very good food. Staff was very friendly. Food service was a little slow. The shrimp and grits were wonderful. Burgers big and juicy. Decent wine list. Good ambiance.

Great food and atmosphere. Our waiter ( I think his name was Thayer?) was spot on. Great food and service. We will look forward to coming back. Also fries are great and I'm not really a fry person.
