Halcyon, Flavors from the Earth
We loved itWe are new to the area and we really wanted something "just right" for a Mother's Day brunch - this was it. We'll be back...a lot.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the restaurant, loveLoved the restaurant, love the food. Given the rise of more people who enjoy eating meatless meals, I think the restaurant needs to expand upon vegetarian options for main meals.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMArtsy and SophisticatedI visited for brunch on a Sunday afternoon, rainy day, after a week of travel. SO I was a little tired and worn out.
The food was delicious with decent aesthetic display. I had an egg omlette with crab meat. The crab was lightly battered and there was plenty of it. I couldn't pass on a dessert item, very unique and tasty. It was carrot cake meet PB&J. Quite creative and yummy. Next time in Charlotte this will be on the top of my list.
Looks like they have a decent cocktail menu as well!
I'd really like to come back to this place with a date for a Saturday dinner.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be back!The service was perfectly timed to allow for our showtime arrival next door, and generally over and above what we see at most restaurants - attentiviness without hovering. We ordered two small plates which were ample for sharing (a note on the menu suggests doing that!) and the presentation was beautiful - the dishes very good. We will definitely be returning to Halcyon!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat creative menuThe waitstaff was very helpful and knowledgeable. My only negative with the food was that I got the Oyster Po Boy and the breading on the oysters lacked salt.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticWe loved it. unique items on the menu.

We brought our daughter visiting from New York and she was thrilled about everything and said we have bring her back, which we will do for and for ourselves. Thank you.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad we took our customers therePleasantly suprised with the location. Easy parking right underneath the restaurant. We sat by the floor to ceilng window looking out over Charlotte. We had a business party of 8 and were well taken care of by our waiter. Food choices were prepared differently giving excitement to dinner. Defintely try the cornbread appetizer. We went on a Thursday night and they had live music that was pleasant to listen to but a little loud for the small restaurant making it hard to have a conversation with a party of 8.
I definitely would reccomend it.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food with very goodExcellent food with very good ambiance.
