  • "The scallops were amazing. Service was a bit slow considering they were not packed."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Not sure why there are so many negative reviews-Flatiron was excellent! Service was very prompt and friendly, food was outstanding, and they were quick with our cocktails-which is always a plus! The only reason I gave 4 stars is prices are slightly higher than what I would expect for the menu items; a slightly casual atmosphere & menu with fine dining prices- but they're the only game in town and they do a great job, so it was acceptable. We had the Brussel Sprouts App & I had trout and my husband had the brick chicken as entrees-both very tasty! We will be back!"

  • "I have been twice now and it has been excellent both times. I had the duck the first time and the spicy seafood linguine most recently. Both dishes were very good the duck especially. Everyone that accompanied me also had a phenomenal meal. I would definitely recommend Flatiron to anyone."

  • "enjoyed great beer specials and food choices. You can even take home a specialty beer in a growler."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "This was an excellent spot to celebrate a friend's sixtieth birthday. The staff was attentive, yet not over- bearing. The fish tacos were fresh, tasty with great presentation as well as the vegetarian black bean burger."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Had a great time. Nice beer and wine list. Food is great quality and the beer and wine list is more than sufficient. Great location in downtown Davidson. Servers and bartenders were excellent. Great for a fun night out."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food is always amazing, the service is always reliable (this time Greg was fabulous!), the beer and wine selections keep everyone happy. Our son, who is in hospitality gets so excited about choosing the beers for the flights for he and his dad -- then selecting the wine for dinner. We've never had a bad experience or dinner we didn't rave about!"
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Really fantastic food and service here as always. Just extremely loud this time for some reason. Was on a first date, and it was very difficult to talk. We had to skip dessert and coffee and go elsewhere. No problem early (5:30PM), but it quickly got extremely noisy, even when the place still was not to capacity. Much of that came from a select few parties, but still.... Fantastic food and very attentive service, though. Really like this place."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "There's nothing on the menu for a strict vegetarian. The server did mention that they could put together any combination of vegetables that are on the menu. So if you're vegetarian you end up with a vegetable plate. I ended up getting a spinach salad with a side of vegetables. Other people in my party had regular menu items and said it was very good. However, I'm only reviewing on my experience with non-strict vegetarian items. If you're looking for something like that you will end up going into Charlotte."

  • "Have had lunch and dinner at this local restaurant several times. The daily lunch specials are inexperience and delicious. The dinner menu covers all meat groups and are delicious too. They use local farmers which I love to see."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "We love the Flatiron Grill! The setting is always relaxed. The food is always good and the drinks are excellent. Jason and his staff are very attentive, always there when you need them but not pushy or hovering. Our favorite is to go and have drinks and eat appetizers for an evening. The Kobe sliders are amazing! The seared ahi is very good. We have always enjoyed their fresh fish of the day. When it is Halibut season, this is the place to go. Make this your go to place!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "My husband and I were surprised at the outset by the waiter's complete lack of familiarity with the wine list - never a good sign. But then when my Pecan Chicken Salad arrived with almonds instead of pecans and spinach stalks at least 2" long throughout, I knew we'd made a mistake in our dining choice. I even asked about the lack of pecans in the dish with that description and got a shrug from the waiter. Just an overall disappointing meal in a place that should be much better."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Very helpful and friendly staff. We had a member of our party in a wheelchair and they were especially helpful in getting us in and out of the restaurant through the busy restaurant. The food is always delicious, the wait staff we had was fabulous! Thank you for a lovely evening."

  • "My wife and I had a wonderful time dining here. The menu was small, but great. The service was perfect."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Ordered an appetizer of crab beignets. They arrived overcooked & were difficult to cut & tasted slightly burned. I ordered the fish. My date ordered beef tenderloin. My fish was prepared correctly, and it was good albeit smallish. My date kept asking me if I wanted a bite of her tenderloin. When I finished, she still had about half of her tenderloin remaining, and asked me to please take a piece. Good God! Am I chewing on shoe leather? She ordered it medium well, and it was overcooked. I then realized that the tenderloin was so tough that she was having a hard time eating it. My date ate less than half of the tenderloin, and we left. My date made the comment that she would never eat there again. The service was prompt & friendly."

  • "Great location, diff for Davidson, good food and wine list. Mussels were a little 2 spicy for my taste but the salmon was amazing"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The menu keeps changing and I think for the better. The service has improved a lot! It is close to home and has a great beer and wine selection so we have been several times. I think it getting better."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The last three times I dined here I was disappointed, but this time the food was much better and the service was good for a Saturday evening. If our server had known the farm source of the beef, i would have checked the "fit for foodies " box!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Made reservations a day ahead of time. Arrived on-time and was told that our "reserved/both" table was in the bar area, seated beside a table of 10 with three young children with very high pitched screams every 30 seconds. Paid for our drinks and left, noting two empty tables as we left. Will not return."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My husband & I had an amazing dinner. We shared the shrimp and grits and the scallops. Both dishes were wonderful and full of flavor. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the sweet potato risotto was a nice surprise. Can't wait for our next date night at Flatiron!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "We went for a birthday celebration. The entree dishes were very good but the salads were not great. I loved the chicken pasta entree and the others in my party had meatloaf and fish and loved it. Besides the salad, we had a great meal. We enjoyed the atmosphere and had a lovely time."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Seems like a good place for drinks and apetizers. I was more impressed with rhe "starters," than the main course."

  • "My wife and I have been here several times over the last year and each time has been great."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have learned to ask what beers they do NOT have available before perusing the menu (they seem to always be out of what we desire most on the menu). their cocktails are great (The Juniper, especially). The new tuna app, crab beignets, and fried green napoleon were all wonderful. I made the mistake of ordering the Flat Iron (medium). That particular cut of meat is never quite right. It was cooked perfectly, but there is nothing you can really do to that particular cut to make it better, I guess. I will stick with the rib eye (which others had and was wonderful), filet, or other entrees in the future. The brussel sprouts served with the flatiron were AWESEOME! We sadly had to skip dessert this time - rain check!"
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Everything was great. I was with a large group and we all enjoyed our appetizers and meals. Our hostess and wait staff were great!"

  • "My 80+ year old parents loved their food, the service and the ambience. I (younger generation) loved all the same. Professional service, delicious food with unusual preparations. Top-notch."

  • "Excellent food and service. Flatiron is our restaurant of choice in Davidson and we have now eaten there 8 times."
    Dined on 10/31/2013
  • "I've never been a fan of the menu at Flatiron, but there was a fundraiser being held by one of the Davidson College organizations, so we decided to go to show our support for Connor House. I will say the menu and the food availble for the evening was very, very good. The food was prepared very well and the presentation was beautiful. The cocktail service was good, but the length of time it took for our food to be served was longer than we expected. When we checked in, the hostess said we did not have a reservations, even though I had made one on line and we had arrived 5 minutes early. I can never find a reason to go back to Flatiron, even after giving them multiple opportunities to win over my business."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "The grilled chicken entree was awful. I've never had so much fat on a piece of chicken and had to work at eating it like I did at this restaurant. The sides were good but the meat was terrible."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "After a day picking apples we were looking for a place to eat. We were looking towards Uptown but decided to stay closer to home. We choose Flatiron based on the Open Table and Yelp reviews. Upon arriving we decided to have a seat at the bar even though our table was ready. We had drinks and the pretzel appetizer which was quite good. The pretzel looked like the ones from the Philly Pretzel company, not certain if they were, but the presentation was good as were the sauces. Moving to a table we chose 2 additional apps and our meals. The Bruschetta was very good, but the goat cheese bake was overpowered by the tomato sauce. Steaks and Crab Cakes were the rest of the meal and each was cooked perfectly. Overall this is a place to visit again."
    Dined on 10/5/2013
  • "Used Flatiron for an important business meeting with people who needed to get to know one another and it worked out well. Reservation handled efficiently; hostess got people to the table as they came in; waitperson understood that we had work going on. Great lunch."

  • "We like Flairon, and are glad to have a place like this in Davidson. This is our first time there with the new chef, and our food was great! The halibut special with corn risotto was fabulous! The halibut was moist and nicely cooked, and the risotto was just perfect."

  • "Very good food and service. Disappointed they did nothing for hubby's birthday and had nothing to accommodate the baby. But overall was great for his birthday. Prices were pretty good for what we got!"
    Dined on 9/4/2013
  • "6 of us dined at the restaurant. My husband and I both had the special of halibut and thoroughly enjoyed. Others ordered the flatiron steak, the filet, scallops and seafood pasta. Only the seafood pasta wasn't a hit. I wish they would offer bread, though when asked they willingly brought out some grilled french bread which was good."
