Diner Reviews
  • "I usually am head over heels for the food, but maybe I picked a bad day. They served an asian themed buffet and it was less than okay for me. Great quiet place to have lunch with a cozy romantic feel."

  • "We went there for Mother's Day Brunch. It was nice and the food was great. My kids are both under 5 so they are free. I do think that charging $18 for a 5 y/o is a bit extreme. I get that you spend more on places like that on special occasions, but I wasn't the only person who thought that for $36 a person, there might be something slightly more upscale (crepe station maybe) or at least it wouldn't take 15 minutes to get the cook to pour batter in the empty waffle iron in front of him."

  • "Made a last minute reservation for restaurant week and we were very surprised at the level of culinary talent and service we received. I had the lamb shank and it was perfectly cooked and presented well. My husband had the salmon and enjoyed but can't stop talking about his red velvet cake. Our waitress, Idianna, was very helpful with the menu selection and we never knew there were descent wineries in NC. Ambiance is lacking as the restaurant is open to the hotel lobby."

  • "I chose this restaurant because it served a North Carolina wine with its Restaurant Week menu which is from Shelton's vineyards the Chardonnay with excellent with dinner. I had the lamb shank with Marscapone polenta, sautéd spinach.for dessert red velvet cheesecake the appetizer the North Carolina charcuterie. My husband had pan seared salmon which came with crab meat sauteed spinach he had as an appetizer the she crab soup for dessert he had the molten cake with fruit compote and vanilla ice cream.everything we had was excellent and I was truly surprised considering the restaurant was inside a hotel."

  • "Glass of wine that was included in restaurant week was awful. I couldn't even drink it. Cheerleading competition going on in hotel and seating was directly next to escalator. Appreciated that manager let beer be swapped out for at least 1 glass of wine."

  • "If you're staying at the Hilton, the restaurant isn't bad, it's just your typical hotel restaurant. But if you live in Charlotte, I don't recommend this restaurant at all. Half the seating area is in the building lobby area and exposed to all the hotel foot traffic walking by. The service was kind of slow, and although the food was decent, it was clearly sitting under heat lamps for significant periods of time. My soup came out with a skin on the top, and the salmon was extremely dry. My fiancee's wine glass came out with half a dozen lip stick prints on it. Overall there are way too many better restaurants in Uptown for me to ever return to this one."

  • "We went for Restaurant Week, that was a mistake. There really wasn't much diversity in the menu items. Food was typical of any hotel restaurant."

  • "Little disappointed with the offering for the brunch at 11:00 am. The offering was only breakfast foods, and not really brunch. The price per person was good, for what is being offered. Training of the wait staff is suggested. Our waitress did not have many answers to questions that were being asked."

  • "The food was succulent and the portions were great!!! Thank you again for the excellent atmosphere and service!!! My wife and I highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. We are going to try their brunch at a later date. Again, my wife and I want to truly express our gratitude for the 5 star meal and service that we received. Thanks again for an excellent date night!"

  • "Many restaurants with in hotels cater to different types of people but the Costal must have been a little short staffed during my visit. The service in the dining area wasnt as friendly to my taste and not familiar with the menu. Unsure of how items listed were prepared or even tasted. Always enjoy dining at a new place with the staff is familiar with the available menu. Why would I eat here if youve never tasted anything or unsure of the taste. Bartenders are Wonderful :) LemonDrop"

  • "We were staying at the Hilton for a concert at Uptown Amphitheater that evening. We figured it would be easiest just to have a nice meal at the hotel, but weren't sure after reading some reviews - we did it anyway. We chose the Charlotte food week chef's menu for $30 which included wine and 3 courses. The food was fantastic and totally unexpected! I had the lamb shank and my wife had the mushroom ravioli and we both absolutely loved it. The most amazing part was the balsamic & strawberry ice cream that the chef had made - unbelievable! Highly recommended!"

  • "We took a Client out for a Business Breakfast. This restaurant is about 3 blocks from the Client's office so the location was perfect. We were seated at a nice table - given our choice of the available ones. We selected the breakfast buffet but it took about 10 min before any Server came to the table to either see what our breakfast choice was or to take our beverage order."

The food was all fresh and very hot. Everything was delicious. The desert bar including the choclate fountain was very nice. Very nice selection of deserts to chose from. Overall I would highly recommed this place for special occassions for brunch."

  • "Service was exceptional! Great variety and selection. Food tasted great but ham was dry and overdone as were the brussell sprouts. On the other hand the lamb was cooked perfectly and all other dishes! Awesome Bloody Mary!"

  • "My husband and I went for Charlotte's restaurant week. Making reservations over the phone was frustrating as we were put on hold for 5 minutes. Upon our arrival, there was no valet parking available and we had to leave our car at the front of the hotel. Our service was sub-par. The restaurant is loud and we still had to talk loud just to hear one another. The server didn't know what brand or type of wine that was being offered with the meal. The server didn't seem to know or understand the menu which amde ordering frustrating. The food, however, was terrific. Everything we had was amazing. We won't be going back because of the cost and service, but we really enjoyed the food."

  • "The environment is very strange since you are actually sitting in the lobby of the hotel. The service fine and the food is average. It is probably just a good drink spot."

  • "Our family dined here on Christmas day and really enjoyed the brunch. The selection was varied and delicious. I would have liked to see a one or two more vegetable side dishes on the buffet, but everything was delicious and there was a lot to choose from overall, from the made -to -order egg/omelet station, to the salads,...the carving table & side dishes, and the pastries etc,.. The staff was very hospitable and warm, and the service was attentive and meticulous! We had our 2 y/o grandson with us and the staff really helped to make sure he had child friendly experience by tailoring service of drink /food choices accordingly. Over all, our whole family was impressed and we would definitely come back!"
