Food was delicious! Loved the lobster bisque. Everything was wonderful. Didn’t realize tip was included. So wait staff got extra gratuity!

Everything went like clockwork. We were on time for our 600pm reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was at our table within 2 minutes. Our food was delivered in a reasonable amount of time, especially considering the crowd on hand. The food was served perfectly and was cooked to perfection and hot off the grill. In addition to our waiter we had other people attend to our drinks and a manager talk to us about our experience. Wonderful evening. This was our second time to this restaurant and we will be back.

Dinner celebration for my mom’s birthday. We were a group of 4, including my 1yr old. We had an early reservation on a Sunday evening so it was not crowded yet. Our service as great. The food all was excellent. The sides are family size. They brought my mom a cheesecake with a candle to celebrate which was a lovely surprise. Wonderful spot to celebrate!

The food was delicious. We went to Celebrate Charlotte’s Restaurant week. The stuffed chicken was delicious, melted in my mouth and seasoned to perfection. The service was the best I have had lately. Anastasia was great, she was very attentive without being bothersome. I made another reservation, and I am requesting her as my server.

We were sat between tables of 2 and 4 by downstairs wall. 2 round tables were near us, one empty and one had 6 people. That table was very loud. They put square tables together next to us to accommodate 12, but they were thankfully not loud. Food was excellent. Taylor a great waiter.

The food was wonderful! The service was even better. One member of our party had several food allergies, and the waitstaff were so friendly and attentive. They went above and beyond to identify items he could enjoy on the dinner and dessert menus. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this place :)

Value was good just ensure you’re charged correctly before paying. We ordered the Ruth Classics and charged individually for a fixed meal. Server and manager tried to explain the charges to no avail; however the bill was corrected and date night was successful.

A most enjoyable evening at Dressler's. Beautiful setting, wonderful server, delicious food! The Queen's Feast menu perfect, although main course Salman could have actually been smaller. My guest took part of his home. The Calamari was the best ever, as was the wedge salad. In addition, the very nice and clean restrooms and Valet parking, made Dressler's a perfect choice.

Food, service, and the general atmosphere were great. A very warm, cozy vibe. Not too loud (I’m finding it more common to be in restaurants where I’m struggling to hear…and my hearing isn’t impaired). I had a potato soup that was absolutely fantastic. We had braised short rib, spinach and mac&cheese as sides. Everything was great and our server was personable and attentive. I’d definitely recommend it if you’re in Charlotte.

Excellent restaurant to dine at if you are ever in the uptown Charlotte area looking for prime steak, chops and/or seafood. Bar bites service w/ separate dining area. The lobster bisque, smoked gouda & bacon au gratin potatoes and salmon was absolutely delicious! Especially good for wine lovers and parking located close to restaurant in which restaurant will validate. Thanks Eric Forsythe (GM) for another great dining and restaurant week experience! Also thanks to the Bartender for the Blooming Hibuscus. Thumbs up!

To start, They have Free valet services when you get there before 10P, thus you won't have to drive around uptown searching for a parking and walk distances to get to the restaurant. You can then have peace of mind savoring their lamb or other dishes, as they take you around the world with their multitude choices. I loved the ambiance and the staffs there. If you are hungry, it is the right place to go; they don't make you wait. Anyway, don't sit close to the windows, it is hard to get in and out.

On Tuesday, Jan. 24, we went to Dogwood Café with good friends and had a superb experience. The food was outstanding and the service matched. As we went during the Queen's Feast, some of us elected to sample the three-course special. I have to mention that the shrimp fritters, new to the menu, were a revelation. I was gobsmacked by how good they were. We are regulars at the restaurant and have never been disappointed. Shout-outs to Executive Chef Andy Williams, General Manager Michele Clappsaddle and our server Tom for a terrific evening! I must mention here that Michele is unfailingly service-oriented and always looking out on behalf of customers.

We went to dinner during restaurant week. The food was delicious. Surf and turf was really good, as well as the branzino and my lamb shank. Loved the bread pudding too. The only disappointment is we were asked to leave after we paid our bill due to people waiting.

Unfortunately, my review is the same as last time. There is no better Italian in Charlotte. The initial service is excellent. Do not come to this place and be there near closing. This is the second time in a row I have had a fantastic dinner and service only to get to the end ( near closing ) and no service or attention. I had to beg for the dessert menu, coffee, and check. At least this time, the waiter did not disappear, and I finally ran him down. Ruined a perfect meal It is a shame to ruin a perfectly good meal when the staff is more focused on closing than finishing up on a positive note.

We went on a Monday evening for our first dinner @ Old Stone Steakhouse. We arrived and discovered that it was Queens Fest and the place was Packed! Our service was very good despite the crowd. The noise level was not as loud as expected. Our order arrived in due time and was excellent. We plan to return later this year for another great experience!
