Dressler's - Charlotte
Dresslers is a favorite!As I do not live, but work, in the neighborhood, my recommendations are limited to afternoons. I assume evenings are at least as enjoyable, if not more so, as the bar set up is very welcoming.
My employer has had several office functions at Dressler's which have always been a delight.
I have lunch dates there quite often and cannot speak highly enough of the restaurant. Very cheerful and friendly greetings, wait service very knowledgeable, courteous, available and prompt....food...EXCELLENT. Also, very accommodating to time restraints. Just let them know...
cannot recommend highly enough!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Mother's Day LunchWe had a fabulous Mother's Day Lunch at Dresslers. The food was wonderful and service excellent!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as alwaysThe resturant is always clean and inviting. The staff from the front door to the wait staff is always friendly and more than willing to accomodate your needs. Very diverse wine list and the martinis have great flavor. Food is outstanding; I've never had anything that wasn't above my expectations. You have to end your meal with Mama's carrot cake. It is the best thing they serve.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendedWe dined at Dressler’s on Saturday for a Birthday celebration, the food was WONDERFUL and the view of the city skyline was outstanding. This restaurant offers outdoor seating and they also had a live band. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience and would highly recommend Dressler’s.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI was VERY pleased with Dresslers!I was VERY pleased with Dresslers! The food was fantastic and the service excellent. We went there for my son's college graduation and could not have been more pleased. We will definitely visit again when we are in town5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful FoodThis has to be one of the best restaurants I have gone to in a very long time.This was our first visit to this restaurant and the food, service and even the table was great. We plan on going back very soon. The only problem is what to eat, as everything looks and tasted so good.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent!One of the top in Charlotte, whether for a special occasion or just a great dining experience. We sat outside this time; it was a nice, cool evening; and listened to the jazz trio. The patio was completely full but even with the music and the full patio it was not loud.
Our server was conscientious, efficient, knowledgeable and personable. We've never had a bad experience at Dressler's and always recommend it to friends and out of towners.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday treatWe were given the best private booth in the house after requesting a quiet area to celebrate my wife's birthday through Open Table, and the hostess said "Happy Birthday" to my wife when we arrived. The staff was friendly and seemed to be plentiful. The Wedgie salad is awesome. My wife's crab cakes were perfect although my sirloin strip seemed to have more gristle than I expected and was more overcooked than medium rare. The pace was relaxed which we liked. The restaurant is in a cool area of Charlotte with lots of energy. We'll definitely go back and try the other entrees. Overall, the restaurant tries very hard to satisfy the customer and we liked their attitude.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food.This is not my first time at Dresslers, but it was my friends first time! The food was great and they wanted to know why I had never brought them here before when they had come in to town!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNoise LevelWe were there on prom night. A little noisier than other times I'm sure. Loved the restaurant.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTruly OutstandingDresslers is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and the service are consistently outstanding, plus a great view of uptown at night!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMusic and scenic view with dinner!Our party of five had a wonderful dinner last Friday night. We sat outside on the nice, cool patio and enjoyed our dinner with music in the background. It was very pleasant. John Dressler, we love your restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it and will definitelyLoved it and will definitely be coming back. Food was delicious and wine list was extensive and well thought out.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently OutstandingI had been to the Dressler's location at Birkdale but this was my first visit to the Charlotte location. Easy, free parking across the street. A great view of the city and located right next to the greenway. I had high expectations of the food and service, based on prior visits to Birkdale and from the Dressler reputation. It did not disappoint. Their crabcakes are the best I've ever had. So much lump crabmeat and the barest amount of crumbs to hold it together. Divine. My friend had the mahi special over corn risotto and that got raves as well. Service was attentive and prompt. Can't ask for a much better experience!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo out of four of us hadTwo out of four of us had the filet and one was over cooked and the other was under cooked. Was very suprised that the restaurant added gratuity to our check. Haven't seen that done before......4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought an out-of-townWe brought an out-of-town guest to our favorite Charlotte restaurant. She was gushing over the dinner. Thanks so much!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want the best diningIf you want the best dining Charlotte Skyline view, ask to sit on the patio. The food is great and so is the wine. If you like a full bodied blend, have a bottle of their house Malbec: Bodega Gratia 2009 by Perdriel in Argentina. It is dark and a little spicy.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant. Have dinedGreat restaurant. Have dined at Dressler's many times. Highly recommend.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDresslers is top-notchWe went to Dressler's for my wife's 30th birthday. The waitstaff is always excellent there and our server was no exception. They have a long wine and beer list and their food is always extremely fresh. We must have been in a seafood mood, because we ordered the calamari appetiser, the salmon carpaccio (which was awesome) and I had the Just for the Halibut (which was excellent as well and one of their top items). My wife had a special (I can't remember what it was now), but I'm sure she liked it as well :)
Dressler's is a little pricey, so expect to drop $100 for dinner and drinks - but it's worth it for a special occasion!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDressler's provided a veryDressler's provided a very nice setting to wind down at the end of the day. The food was excellent and well served. The speed of the service was very remarkable, admittedly we were there early but everything was served and explained as presented. I will definitely be back when in Charlotte again.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply SuperbMy husband and I took our daughter visiting from Seattle here. All of the dishes were spectacular and the service was superb. We will definitely be returning for another wonderful experience. Thank you!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Girls' Night!We had a group of 8 for dinner. We had a great time and our server was fantastic. I really wish I could remember his name - I'm TERRIBLE with names. An older gentleman, Chicago accent. He was wonderful with suggestions/recommendations. Several of us ordered from the specials and they were fantastic. Cowboy bone-in rib-eye was out of this world - my sister and I split that (24 oz!) and my other sister (guest of honor) had their halibut special which was also outstanding. Several ordered their heart of rib-eye and gushed over it's flavor. Also at the table was an order of salmon and short ribs and there wasn't a complaint. For apps we had the lobster dip, calamari (my FAVE!) and the pimento cheese.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best in Charlotte.This is our fourth (or fifth) time at Dressler's and I just can't say enough about this restaurant. From the moment you walk in the front door, you know this is a restaurant that takes exemplary service seriously. The food, the atmosphere, the service - it's all simply very well done. We had a great time and we will be back. As soon as we can.
On this outing, one member of our party was in a wheel chair and every accommodation was made for their comfort.
Go once, and you'll be glad you did. And you will see where so many other restaurants are lacking.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNum Yummy!I had lunch there today with a couple co-workers/friends and we all licked our plates clean. And we had dessert and died over Mom's warm apple cake. Best apple dessert we've ever had! Delicious!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and i went to DresslersMy wife and i went to Dresslers on a rainy weeknight during a visit to Charlotte. Complementary Valet parking up front. The restaurant is in a nice space with modern design elements and exterior glass walls. The view of the Charlotte skyline would have been spectacular had it not been raining. Service was good. My wife got the crispy duck. I got the braised beef rib. Both were great. Mom's cheesecake for dessert. Very good. We hope to return soon.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster BrunchThis was our second visit. We were so impressed by the food and service the first time that we decided to try their Easter Brunch. The price was reasonable and the food was delicious.

BEST EVER ...going every week forever. -Marshall Gilchrist3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Atmosphere, Romantic, Great!Great place, will go back for sure! The food was delicious and the meat that they offered was of good quality.
Their favorite appetizer is the Thai Calamari. We were not the biggest fans, the wasabi was a bit too strong for me. The lamb was delicious, I do not like mustard at all but this was so good it had a much different flavor. The filet was delicious, and oddly I loved the mashed potatoes, I couldn't get enough.
Our waiter was great! He was very knowledgeable and attentitive. He made sure we had a great time, and made sure we ordered the correct things. Will be back there next week and can't wait!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceGreat food. Great service. Erik was our host and Kent was a waiter.
