    Often times a place with a killer view often suffers with bad service and food-not the case here...been here several times and I always bring my utta town guests in for cocktails and dinner. The view as the sunsets and the colors surrounding tthe cityscape is awesome. Food is always top notch and the Ccharlotte nachos are to die for and worth every calorie. Finger food at its best and makes for a fun date or a way to settle your bosses into submission. Edward was a our server and was spot on the entire visit! He made our dinner fun and thats important to me.....can't wait to go back...and the prices are in line and, to me, reasonable! Valet was only $7!

    We visited for our anniversary based on a friend's recommendation. Though we had a 7:30 PM reservation had to wait 10 minutes more - Not a big deal, though the hostess acted like she was going out of her way to talk to us. Not at all welcoming and we were right on time. Our waiter was fantastic and had excellent suggestions. The wine list is very good. Food was over the top fantastic! The only real negative, and probably because we are a bit older than the demographic here, was that it was way too loud. We could not carry on a conversation at the table. If you are looking for energy though this place checks all of the boxes. And the view if the city skyline was fabulous.

    We went to Farenheit for our 25th anniversary. Upon arriving, we noticed it was very loud, but in a very energetic way. Celebrating, we embraced the energy and the staff held our table to enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the bar. Our table was not far from the kitchens and close enough to the window to see the view. Our server, Zack was spot on. He didn't hover, but did notice when we need something. We had a Tuna App and Tomato Bisque. The Tuna was good, but could have used less chutney/relish to get more of the Tuna taste. The bisque was very good. We had Kobi Short Ribs and Duck Confit Pasta. Bothe were prepared well. The Pot De Creme was great. Definitely will go again.

    I have been here before to drink but This was my first time actually dinning. The staff was very attentive and very nice. The view was beautiful and the food was good. I love how the beers and wines are from the community. I will def be eating here again in the future. The ambiance is very nice but not too much. It was simply perfect for celebrating a birthday. They brought out a nice dessert after our meal which was just another great added touch.

    Several service snafus: Drink order taken with dinner order, drinks arrived after salad served, entree arrived while still eating salad, entree lukewarm. Waiter basically disappeared after food was served. Lobster mac and cheese was very good; scallops very salty. With entrees in the $30 - $40 range, I expected more. In addition, it's frustrating to have to pay $7 for valet parking, considering the price of the food.

    This is the second time I have been to the restaurant and will definitely go back. It is such a pleasant experience from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave. The service has been great both times, but the food is exceptional! You can't beat the view. We just had the best time and I am craving the Salmon and short rib buns!!!

    I happen to be in town on business and always enjoyed the Tremont location in Cleveland, Ohio. I enjoy the food always back home. Heard about new location last year and since I was in town on business, why not. Top of Hyatt place overseeing downtown. Outside patio was amazing. Took two of my co workers there who never been. They were amazed. The appetizers were amazing. The bacon dates r amazing as well the charlotte nachos and spring rolls. Dive into dinner my co workers enjoyed then pork tenderloin special and the pep flat bread. I when to my go to which should be everybody's the short rib meal. Amazing and yummy. Thank u Rocco.

    Good tasting food. Fair service. Had to ask for iced tea glasses to be refreshed. Burgers are served on an un toasted english muffin that was gummy and lacked flavor. The fries however were very good, pork tenderloin was tender and flavorful but served with overly sweet mashed sweet potatoes and maple syrup. The tuna flavor was delicious and spicy, but the tuna didnt seem to be of the highest grade. The pizza base was well cooked and had good taste, but the shrimp topping had a strong oder of fish, was over cooked and had a strong taste of iodine. A well drink was 12 bucks and wines were way overpriced. Even in NYC i can get an extensive wine list at Becco where all wines are priced at $25.00 per bottle.

    After hearing all the hype , I was very dissapointed with Farenheit. The food was inconsistently seasoned, some over salted, other under salted and bland. The fish, badly over cooked. In all for the price is not worth it. I think there needs to be a better quality control of the food. I was impressed by the army of people in the kitchen, then badly dissapointed with the flavor of the food. I will explore new restaurants with talented chefs before considering coming back

    I think Fahrenheit should be more of a bar food/drink spot rather than a full scale restuarant... I had the king crab ramen and it was just ok for $40... I wasn't blown away... I am a foodie so I was not swept away by the food. The drinks are way too pricey... But the view is what you are paying for....

    I rarely take the time to provide feedback unless the experience is exceptional in some way. I found the food exceptionally bad. When the mean is over 90 percent fat it no longer matters hoe good the sauce is which covers it. Given the pricing and expectations set with the "famous" chef, one would expect quality products. Take the view out of play and this place would be on par with a food truck with a D sanitation grade. Don't buy into the hype pick any of the vast number of amazing quality restaurants in Charlotte this one is on the avoid list.

    The owner should decide whether this is a club or a restaurant, because the bar - which is beautiful, slings a great cocktail, and has a fantastic view - is pummeled by loud music, forcing everyone to shout. I could hardly hear the bartender, who seemed (probably to preserve her voice) to purposefully speak in a quiet tone. We had a reservation for 8:00, but they did not seat us until 8:40 - this was quite irritating. They kept apologizing and saying that they had large parties. I thought, well, if you want to be a place that caters to loud business parties, you can hardly promote yourself as a high quality restaurant. All in all, despite the excellent food and the beautiful setting, I will not go back.

    We went here for my husband's 40th. The view is amazing and we had a drink outside which was nice. Then we went to the table. My husband ordered a beer. They were out of the first beer he wanted. The second beer was having problems with the tap. Took over 35 minutes for him to get his drink! I had the seared tuna for $40. It was entirely overcooked and flavorless. Husbands meal was ok, but he felt not work the $38. We would maybe go back just for drinks and the view before going elsewhere to eat. The restaurant was so loud it was hard to hear each other. Poor service and food all around.

    Our dinning experience was great: service was excellent and food was very good. All topped with the great views of uptown Charlotte. The noise level could be overwhelming and we were not impressed with the desert. We had rice pudding which was just ok. Outdoor dining is limited space but if you get - it is great. Same as bar area. Great place to hangout with your friends or loved ones.

    We choose Fahrenheit to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. There were 6 of us, including married grandkids and their spouses. It was a fabulous evening and Rocco stopping by the table to wish my mom a Happy Birthday was just the best. Wes, our waiter, was so knowledgeable and helpful as we questioned him about various dishes. All in all a great evening and we are already planning a return trip.

It was difficult to even hear descriptions of the menu by waiters who were very close to the table. Even conversation with my dinner guest was challenging. Overall, a very nice experience.

    I think they had a bad night. Restrooms did not work, had to go to 10th floor to freshen up for dinner. It was my bday and I was gonna be celebrating there so of course I was gonna be drinking, so to go from the 21st floor down to the 10th to use the restroom was unheard of. So we left. First impressions are everything, don't think I'll be going back.

    Very excited to go...some bumps along the way but all addressed incredibly promptly by staff. We had a severely broken glass on table, a very dirty knife set on the table (turned off my husband!) and our food entrees came out right in the middle of appys - very mis-timmed in the kitchen!!! But the lovely mature waitress and manager (both bright acute thinking women) were stellar in apologies and making good. Loved the short rib and dates appy...and view! Would try again - fun new place to try for all.

    The view of the city while dining is fantastic. The place is very energetic with a bar smack dab in the middle of the restaurant. Other reviews about the noise level are spot-on. I was able to hear my date but I really had to pay attention and talk a bit louder. Our server was a joy to conversate and joke with. The best part though was the food! Oh my God was it good. I had a special 18-ounce steak and my date had the Maine lobster mac and cheese. I tried hers and loved it and my steak was moist and seasoned very well. I swear I took the first bite out of it and almost passed out in enjoyment it was so good. Highly recommend this place, looking forward to trying everything on the menu.

    2nd visit - very dissappiointing to say the least. Reserved table for six was located near the kitchen service door with little to no view of the skyline. Service was fair but food was mediocre to poor. Fish entrees were cold and dry. So loud you couldn't hear yourself talk. Won't return soon, if at all.

    Great ambiance with a gorgeous view of Charlotte's skyline. The food was delicious however the menu is a la cart so it is a must you order your sides when you order an entree. The menu for sides is limited. The restaurant had it's own herb garden on the roof top terrace and there's plenty of space and seating on the terrace along with a sexy gas fire pit. Ambiance is a 10! You can go there for drinks & appetizers or a gormet pizza too. Overall a great restaurant.
