Diner Reviews
  • "My steak dinner was delicious and my two dinner guests had the chicken dinner. There were three empty plates at the conclusion of the meal. Dessert trio was great also!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This was the second time I had been here. It is lovely inside and out. Nice live music. Appetizer was great as was the risotto. However, my pasta dish and another pasta dish at our table were very mediocre. Great desserts. I had the Panini before and it was delicious. Wait staff was excellent and did everything they could to make our dinner as enjoyable as possible. Will definitely keep coming back. A really nice spot for adults."

  • "Food was slow coming out. One entree was hot...one was not. Disappointing. First time not pleased with meal experience at this location."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The atmosphere is very nice, much improved from the original setup. Get one of the booths for an optimal date-night experience. The wait staff knows the menu well and are eager to satisfy your every request. The food is top notch. Try the Chicken Lemonata or the Atlantic Salmon. If you are on a diet, stay away from the Bittersweet Chocolate Torte as a bite or two won't be enough, you'll have to eat the whole thing - it's that incredible. Gluten Free menu available."

  • "We've dined here many times. The food is great, and the customer service is always very good. It was a bit louder than we would have liked, but overall a very good dining experience."

  • "We live in the neighborhood so this has been our go-to place since it opened. We'd stop in on the way back from lacrosse games, on the way home from the airport, or any time that I just couldn't face cooking and didn't want take-out. Service was always good and the food was decent. It was 100% dependable. Until lately. Since the expansion, the place is packed all the time. That's good for the business, but not so great for the clientele. The noise level is high (think subway pulling in), reservation times are meaningless, and servers are harried. Management is definitely having problems keeping up with the crowds."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The setting is lovely, the service impeccable, the food excellent. I was happy with my scallop dish, but midway through, our server set down a small plate with another scallop, saying that the manager, in his subtle rounding the room, thought those on my plate were a tad small so decided to supplement them. That's never happened before! We'll be back, probably for the deboned lamb shank with orzo, the best I've ever had anywhere."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The menu has something for everyone,a appetizers are all tasty but our favorites are the the 4 dip with pita triangles and the marinated octopus is always delicious and a must have. Favorite salads are the mesclun and grape and fennel, but one our guests had the cesear salad with white anchovies; he thought it was great, he is Italian and is a great cook. We tried striped bass, salmon, scallops and mushroom ravioli all were very good. Great place to surprise your out of town guests, their palates will be pleasantly surprised."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "If you are looking for a delicious meal with lots of options, this is a great choice. Service was wonderful and we felt very welcomed. Do not be in a hurry on a weekend night, as they were quite busy. If you have time to dine, this restaurant is a great choice."

  • "Open bar area, outdoor seating, great food, my new favorite restaurant."

  • "Reservation was no hassle! Waiter was excellent and food was over the top! Loved the Greek salad and Calamari, and the Basil sorbet was unbelievably delicious! We'll be back."
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the menu was very diverse with uniqueness and great variety. The atmosphere was pretty electric and vibrant where everyone seemed to feel at home which made it very cozy for us. The zucchini and eggplant chips and shrimp appetizers were so good I could have had them for a meal! We will definitely return and recommend to our family and friends!"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Our party of two had a 7:45 reservation and finally got seated around 8:50. The bar area was beyond packed so we couldn't get close to the bar to get a drink while we waited. There were at least two other parties who had reservation time the same as ours who had to wait over an hour as well. Once seated, the manager did bring a free appetizer and apologized for the long wait, our waiter was pleasant and efficient and the food was very good. ."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The lamb chops and lamb souvlaki were both over cooked (three out if five of us ordered lamb dishes). The pasta dishes the other two people at our table ordered were only so-so. The first time I tried this restaurant a year ago, I thought it was just okay. I decided to give it another shot. Unfortunately, it had not improved, so I won't be back."

  • "Ilios is close to,our house and a great restaurant! I have Celiac - and they have a great gluten free menu. We have been there 3 times and have been very happy each time!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "On a busy Friday night, we had to wait 10-15 minutes to be seated despite our reservation. The manager was apologetic . The service was good. The food was excellent. The noise level high."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Great food and service as always. Noise level has increased since expansion but still highly recommend."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "My wife and I dine out frequently. Although we live near Ilios Noche we seldom dine there. Although the interior improved after the renovation and expansion, it still has the feel of something from the '50s. Staring at the wide-screen television from the bar as we ate didn't enhance the experience. I ordered the Lamb Youvetsi ($27.50) which is served off the bone and is quite tasty. The only problem was that it was overly salty. I am grateful to our server, Brooke, who refilled my water glass four times. (My wife's dinner also was very salty.) The bread was dry and not up to the standards one would expect at this price point. My dinner alone, with two $9 glasses of wine and no first course, including tax and 20% tip was $58. Not worth it."

  • "Illios is arguably one of the best restaurants in Charlotte. Everything about it is exceptional. From the moment you walk in, you're greeted by their lovely host staff and made to feel welcome almost as if you're family coming home to visit. The GM, Patrick, is always nearby, keeping a keen eye on the happenings in the resturant and ensuring everything operate smoothly and efficiently. I'm not sure I've ever seen a better managed resturant regardless of the price point. My family and I joined them Saturday for dinner. As has been our experience in the past, the service was remarkable and the food amazing! We had the margarita pizza to start, I had the swordfish special and my wife the caprese salad. This is a must try..Five Stars!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "First let me say that the food and particularly our service were very good. The only downside was the noise level. The restaurant was pretty full and it was so noisy my family could not have a conversation without practically yelling at each other."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "The staff were all wonderful - courteous, professional, friendly and all helped to make it a fun experience. The food was very tasty, but was delivered warm and was cold before I could finish ... I didn't care for that The noise level was extremely loud and was hard to hear conversations at the table - but I know that is the norm at most restaurants All in all ... an OK dinner out at a place that I will visit again, but I will not rush back to."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We had a pleasurable experience at Ilios Noche! The food was excellent. We shared a couple of appetizers; excellent calamari, delicious tapa spreads with pita, & yummy eggplant chips with dipping sauce! I ordered the mushroom pizza drizzled with truffle oil......very tasty. My friend ordered the lasagna which was also very good. HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good quality food!"

  • "Waited 20 minutes before drink order taken. Extremely slow. Spent 2 1/2 hours for six people, not considered long in a nice restaurant, Drinks, bottles of wine, and the manager/owner? Had the audacity to say "Hallelujah" they are leaving because he had people waiting!!!!! Well mr owner, wait on us a little faster, we had a reservation! And If we wanted to dine in 30 minutes we would go to chillis. Don't worry, we will NOT be back. We have never had a GREAT dinner Here anyway."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Our food was very good. I am eating a vegan diet and there were lots of good alternatives. The vegetables were awesome. My dining partners enjoyed their meals although one complained the pork chop was overcooked and dry. The drinks were very good and the glasses overflowing. The restaurant was a bit loud for casual conversation and the waiter was a little slow. Several tables were turned twice while we were dining. Overall still a nice experience. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Ilios Noche was a wonderful place, especially for a special valentines dinner. We had 630 reservation and were seated immediately. The tables were a bit tight this night, due to the fact they separated all tables to accommodate parties of 2. My only disappointment was they were already out of the selection I went to get - grilled Tuna. But, everything we did order was great. Waiter was very prompt and considerate."

  • "staff was very attentive. Our waiter had a great knowledge of the menu and how the food was prepared. Food was very good. I will be back for sure."

  • "this was the second time I've been to Ilios Noche and both times were wonderful. Our table ordered several different dishes and every one of them was melt-in-your-mouth delicious...perfectly cooked. the restaurant is beautiful and the service is prompt and attentive. this was especially amazing as it was slammed. Our reservation was for 7:45 on a Saturday night. We didn't get in until about 8:15 because the party before us was lingering at their table. The staff and manager were very apologetic and visited our table. The waiter was on the ball even though they were all running constantly. It's a beautiful restaurant and the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that it was so busy (always a good sign) that it was very noisy."

  • "Arrived 5 minutes early for a 7:45 reservation for a party of two and was told there'd be a little bit of a wait as they were behind. Some 15-20 minutes later, the manager stopped by the front, looked at the reservation list and the wait list, and judging by his countenance, provided a "training opportunity." The gals at the front were giving walk-in wait-list patrons priority while ignoring those with reservations. This isn't a new restaurant; the staff should have been better trained or smart enough to figure it out themselves. Will we be back? Sure. There are no other options this close to home. However, I'm really looking forward to the additional options that will come on-line once Waverly is built and opens across the street."

  • "We had been hearing good things about this restaurant and decided to try it out on a Friday night. Unfortunately, everybody else in Charlotte goes there on Friday night! The Park Road version was totally booked so we went to lower Providence Road. We had to wait over 15 minutes despite the reservation, and it was so noisy that we could hardly talk. By 9 PM it had calmed down enough that the ringing in my ears had stopped. Food is excellent, and service seemed good. Ambience is lovely, and lots of 30-40 somethings seem to take (or get) their dates there."

  • "Overall I was very impressed with minor exceptions. A pet peeves is when giving a drink order and the server is already turned around and I'm talking to their back when I ask for the glass of water to accompany my wine. With only one other table after the lunch rush, I expect to have the server's full attention. Also, we enjoyed our calamari but the plate (including share plates) were not removed when our entrees arrived. Well, after we finished the incredible mushroom ravioli and my friend ate most of her sandwich, they were removed. And I also don't like having to box up your own food at the table; call me picky. The server was helpful in getting a second lid as the first did not fit on the ToGo container. Will return for sure!"

  • "This was my first visit, and I immediately felt welcome by everyone, including the staff and patrons. The atmosphere is fun, yet classy, and the food was really good. There are a wide variety of choices on the menu, so I can't wait to go back and try something new. Recommend making a reservation on the weekend because this place is hopping!"

  • "Mediocre fare in a strip-mall setting. Nothing exceptional. I had the lamb burger, which I ordered medium-rare, but got well done. I shudder to think how it would have been cooked if I'd requested well done. The fries were very odd, soaked in an overwhelming lemon, which is an awkward flavor for potatoes. Between that and the strip-mall ambiance, not to mention the illiteracy of their website ("it's newest concept"...really?!), I'd say they have little to offer. Give it a miss."

  • "Ilios Noche ended up being a perfect place for our night out. We were seated at our reservation time with no delay. The food was very good. The atmosphere was great for us as we were talking and laughing quite a bit and it didn't disturb anyone. We will definitely go back."

  • "I want to start this review by stating, I love Ilios Noches and it is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. My experiences there have almost always been good. Unfortunately on my last visit, the greeting and seating experience was negative, leading me to wonder if Ilios values my business. Although I walked in the door first, and had reservations several parties were waited on and seated before me. When I was finally greeted, I was asked to be seated to wait for my table. Again, other parties, including at least one without a reservation, were seated first. That was just rude. After I was seated, our service was superb and the food was also superb. But the experience at the beginning left a bad taste in my mouth."
