Great meal!My husband, four teenage kids and I went to custom shop for my birthday and could not have had a more perfect meal. Everyone throughly enjoyed their meals and the four small plates we ordered for appetizers were fabulous. The Tuna meatballs were a big hit. The service was excellent as well. Loved the diversity of the menu....a little bit of something for everyone.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCustom Shop Builds Great FoodThis was my first experience at the Custom Shop and it was delightful. While our server sometimes was off in his own little world I think that was just a fluke. The bar is pretty cool and had great service there. There are a few tables outside to view the city and Elizabeth area but we ate inside. Big booths, cozy, quiet, and nice ambiance. The food was spectacular. We tried several appetizers, meat and cheeses and all were delicious. Take their recommendations for that. I had the fresh made pasta bolognese and it was outstanding. Delicious. I tried the tuna and that was equally good. I will go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMCS saved the night!CustomShop saved our special night. We went to another restaurant to celebrate a birthday, but were underwhelmed. In order to end the night on a good note, we came in for a cheese plate and dessert. I recommend everything about CustomShop.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and ambience.Excellent service and ambience. Started with the mussels which were a bit disappointing but good none the less. Too much basil, added some bitterness that was over powering. I had the smoked duck for main course which was excellent. My date has the duck confit which was also very very good. Other menu items looked very good. Love the farm to table concenpt and have visited many similar establishments, would rank this one high but not one of the best. I would eat here again but would try a few of the exoctic items from their small plates menu. I did see Jamon Iberico on the menu which I have only seen one other place in Charlotte.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best places myOne of the best places my wife have gone in a while. Look forward to going back very soon. The staff was great.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommended.You were highly recommended and lived up to your reputation I will definately pass the recommendation on.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I were in CharlotteMy wife and I were in Charlotte for the weekend and very pleased we didn't miss out on an experience at Customshop. An unassuming and understated interior sets the tone for and allows a menu that relies on simple, locally sourced products to really shine.
The smoked crispy duck breast dish was perfectly cooked, and the plate included some welcome twists to a traditional French dish (particularly the use of kumquats). The sea scallops were some of the largest my wife and I had ever seen, and were perfectly cooked as well.
We didn't take advantage of dessert but the ones we saw looked delicious.
Despite many well-reviewed restaurants in the area, we would return to Customshop without hesitation our next time in Charlotte.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the ambiance. GreatLove the ambiance. Great food. Quentin area and atmosphere.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I vistited CustomshopMy wife and I vistited Customshop for our 9 year wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic and service was great and we truley enjoyed our overall experience. I would highly recommend Customshop and we will certainly be visiting again.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomshop is a foodie favoriteCustomshop is a foodie favorite of mine. All their products are extremely fresh and locally sourced. We had a new server. All too often new servers try far to hard to compensate for a lack of wine and food familiarity. I think it speaks volumes of Customshop that our server was straighforward and frank regarding his unfamiliarity with the full wine menu. Aside from that, the food and wine was fantastic as usual. Good luck deciding what to select!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for brunch on SundayWe went for brunch on Sunday afternoon. It was fantastic! The place was quiet, the wait staff was attentive, and the food was great.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Experience, as usual!I love this restaurant!! We took our long time friends here to eat and the food was wonderful, as usual. Their assortment of cheese and charcuterie, wines, and local beers on draft are awesome! The Custom Shop has the best staff and service in Charlotte, equal to Luce.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for foodiesOverall very good. I highly recommend. Just a few points to watch. Somehwat Noisy.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, service better thanFood, service better than expected. For a restaurant to be 6 years old and continues to surpass expectations, this is the place! Don't expect big portions; quality is the focus. We look forward to visiting again soon.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant, oneI love this restaurant, one of my all time Charlotte favorites but I went for my birthday and everything was a bit off from my previous experiences. I'll be back for sure but they have some work to do to get back to the standard that I came to appreciate. Great atmosphere and service.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and the serviceExcellent food and the service is simply great. The entrees are not a balanced meal, which I didn't realize at first. You should an appetizer or order sides with your entree if you have a hearty appetite. If I owned/operated a restaurant, I would want it to be like Customshop. I'll definitely be going back.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNice neighborhood restaurantNice neighborhood restaurant with exceptionally good food.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA cosmopolitan find in Charlotte!We love Customshop!!!! We were taken there by friends 2 weeks ago and could not wait to get back!!! We took two new friends there this past Saturday night, and they loved it also!
The food is delicious. The menu is very intriguing, and the service is very attentive and professional!
We did not feel like we were in Charlotte which for us is saying a lot since we moved here from San Francisco!
We look forward to many delicious and happy times at Customshop!!!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience!Another great experience! Food and service impressed a New Yorker and a Cali girl! Always excellent3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good on all fronts.Always good on all fronts. Had a waiter on his first night and I had to explain to him what to do, but this is a wonderful dining experience consistently.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time diningThis was my first time dining at Customshop, and I would definitely go back.

I can't wait to go back and try something new.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food/Exellent ServiceFood and Service is always excellent at the Custom Shop. My husband and I ordered the beet appetizer and oyster appetizer and they were both delicious. The pork chops were so good - the best we ever had!3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch-miss brioche french toastBrunch was very good, but they took my favorite menu items off of the menu (blueberry mascarpone cheese french toast and fritta). The peanut butter/banana bread french toast was good, but not as good as the brioche bread french toast and the portion was smaller. The service was excellent and the scones brought to the table after you order is a nice touch!!3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday brunch is so deliciousExcellent service and delicious food! The eggs benedict, blueberry/mascarpone french toast, sauage and coffee were so good.2/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Brunch in Charlotte!!!My husband and I ordered the blueberry and mascarpone french toast and the chorzio frittata. This was no doubt the best breakfast either of us ever had - can't wait to try other items on their menu. I typically don't like anything too sweet for breakfast, but I tried my husband's french toast and it was so delicious and not too sweet.2/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
