Diner Reviews
  • "I can't say enough about Charlotte's. They treat you like family and there's something on the menu for everyone! Always consistent and always delicious!"

  • "Ours meals were delicious! Charlotte's always begins the meal with fresh bread and a delightful oil mixture for dipping. A vegetable mixture is also placed on the table. We ordered their traditional salad with Greek house dressings. Their salad includes feta, chickpeas, radishes, cucumber, tasty greens and grape tomatoes. My husband's dinner of chicken and mine of scallops were perfect. Always great dining!"

  • "I wish the décor both inside and outside was a bit more updated - not necessarily modern - but newer. The food was delicious, but the ambience seemed stuffy, quiet, and like a place that my grandparents would go to. I took 2 clients and my intern here, and we all felt out of place (as we are all on the younger side, i.e. under 30). However, the crab cake was exceptional and our service was on par. Would revisit this place, but only for the food. This is not a place I would hang out and have a few drinks after dinner at - likely just eat and leave. Maybe good for special occasions, but I would bring my work clients to a more "hip" establishment in the future. This seems like a "retirement dinner" or "50th birthday" kind of place."

  • "The food was spectacular, the service delightful and the menu was creative. Mostly much older folks but it really needn't be. Maybe too pricey for younger people?"

  • "Crabcakes used to be awesome, what I got were scallop cakes. I wondered why these "crabcakes" were rubbery, gave a taste to my companion and voila, it was scallops! No crab whatsoever and if there was crab, it was very well hidden. The wasabi mashed potatoes were unedible, had to change them to regular mashed. So much for the food. Our waitress was very busy and tried to be as attentive as possible. The Manager, needs to take a course in people skills, very "rough around the edges" and gives the impression he doesn't really care. Used to love this place, we won't be going here anymore."

  • "Our orders were taken promptly. Appetizers arrived, I had to remind our server that I was to receive drawn butter with my clams. Salads arrived, no issues. There was a slight delay in serving our entrees, the restaurant was packed. It seemed like additional tables were added, which made it difficult for servers and customers to manuver between the tables. Our entrees arrived, my grilled asparagus did not. I had to ask twice for it; 3 stalks of asparagus. We ordered dessert; waited 15 minutes and asked one of the other servers to cancel dessert as we already finished our coffee and tea. One of the owners came over to appologize, stating that the kitchen was really backed up with desserts. This is the 3rd bad experience; we will not be back."

  • "Went here once and the reviews are right on. Great seafood selection and specials. Family owned business with a friendly atmosphere. One member of the family was playing piano and accordion throughout the night. Hard to find spots like this anymore!"

  • "We've been coming here for Easter dinner for many years. There is a great holiday menu and the food is very good. Service was a bit slow this time but it is Easter so it's understandable!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Food and service was very good. A special Easter dinner menu was the only offerings available. We would have preferred lunch or brunch since it was a 12 Noon reservation. It would have been great to have this information from Open Table prior to our visit."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Great service and food. Nice to have the owner introduce himself and shake our hands when we came in. A bit pricey but I don't mind that if the atmosphere, food and service are all worth it. At Charlotte's it is definitely worth it!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "For the quality of food and service, the restaurant deserves more publicity and good sign-board to attract better attention. Service was quick and the staff efficient and courteous."

  • "Love the creative dishes! Had the spinach ravioli with a spectacular rosa sauce! One person had the veal with prosciutto and spinach and thought it was great. Service was well-timed and friendly. Great value for the money!"

  • "Charlottesville advertises as "The best kept secret in Delaware County." It is. The atmosphere is sophisticated but not stuffy. The food and presentation are excellent. The management and wait staff go out of their way to ensure a pleasant dining g experience. PLUS - the prices will not break the bank. One of my favorite places."

  • "The food is always great at this restaurant. We enjoyed the piano player. The owner was very nice. It was the first time that I thought the waitress was not good. We saw her once after she took our order. Another kind gentleman stopped by the table and inquired, if we wanted another beverage."

  • "Have been by this place many times but never stopped in. Very glad we did this time, the whole experience was well worth it. Great food, great service, beautiful clean place, nice atmospher. Highly recommend this place, for special occasions, romantic dinner, or just a relaxing evening dinner."

  • "Drove to Newtown Square on a snowy Saturday evening the day after Valentine's day to celebrate with my wife. We were warmly greeted, seated in a very comfortable booth and the wait staff soon provided wine and some warm fresh baked bread. Next a nice salad. My wife had the cod and crab which was excellent and was more than she could eat so some came home. I enjoyed Veal Saltimbocca also excellent. The owners were most gracious, chatting with us during the meal and again on the way out. All in all we were well pleased with Charlotte's."

  • "The items on the special menu were appealing and we enjoyed our selections.Side salad was ordinary, soup and entrees were very good. Service was dreadful. Being seated 35 minutes late was OK, they told us when we arrived that they were running 15-20 minutes behind. But after being seated it took an additional 35 minutes before a server came to us. Not even water. This after the host reassured us twice that someone was coming. The server apologized often for the delay, but I doubt that it was her fault. Had it been my restaurant I would have offered a discount or coupon to make up for this debacle. They really didn't seem to be prepared for the traffic."

  • "Order Veal Parmesan got Chicken Parmesan enough said. That meal should have been free."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Prices were inflated for the holiday over normal prices. Menu options (Sides) were not optional and restrictive. Comment at the bottom of the menu inferred not to linger, eat and get out. Very rude. Will not go back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Horrible experience overpriced poorly executed food. Food is overlooked laden in butter and salt. On par with diner food but 5x the price. The diners and the decor are all senior. This place hasn't been updated since the 70s it smells musty and looks dirty. Picture on wall near table has stains in it. Table cloth had a hole in it. Save your money!"

  • "We've been going to Charlotte's Restaurant in Newtown Square for about as long as we've been married and this year will be our 40th anniversary. We've seen Charlotte's go through changes over the years, but there are several things that I hope never change. I hope they never change their friendly family atmosphere and the outstanding service and attitude of the staff. They always go the extra mile to insure that our dining experience is an enjoyable one. We last visited Charlotte's on Valentine's Day and although their menu was a limited holiday version of their usual selections, the food was the usual gastronomical delight that we've become accustomed to over the years. The merlot wine I had was an exceptional vintage. Outstanding!"

  • "Brought friends from out of town for their first-time visit. They loved it. We enjoy going there about once a month or so. Always friendly and good service, fresh food, good variety."

  • "Charlotte's is a go to restaurant for us. The food is reliably good and the prices are very reasonable for the neighborhood and quality. Definitely put it in your restaurant rotation."

  • "Food was good disappointed in service. Sitting too close to kitchen door, felt like table was in the way. Waitress missed 1 soup order, put that in after everyone else got theirs then missed a dinner order for one. Brought out a birthday cake for our table that did indeed have a birthday but the cake was not supposed to be for us. They sang and said they would cut the cake while we tried to figure out how they knew about the birthday, but the cake never came out again and nothing was said about it. Another table over then got a cake . It was actually funny. We arrived at 5pm so it was not an over crowded room ."

  • "We eat at Charlotte's restaurant weekly. We like the relaxed feel of the place. We usually go in time for the early bird menu. The service is excellent. Enjoy the live piano players."

  • "We decided to go for lunch last minute and try something new... Charlotte's food was good and the atmosphere was let's say, a bit different than what we are used to. Overall a nice experience."

  • "My husband and I went here for the first time after driving past and wondering about it for years. We had 8:00pm reservations but got there early so we decided to have cocktails and apps at the bar. The bartender Bill was fantastic. We really enjoyed talking with him. The restaurant is family run and it shows. The employees/owners we so friendly and welcoming. We ended up staying at the bar for our entrees. The oysters were fantastic. My broiled seafood combination was ok, but I'm am looking forward to returning to try some of the other seafood choices."
