We had good food and lots of
variety with the choice of sides. I was disappointed by the very limited wine menu. The location is great when you have tickets to the Knight Theatre since it's across the street."

Our experience overall was very
good. The food was delicious and our server was very attentive throughout our dining experience without being too overbearing."

We absolutely loved this
restaurant. Went before a performance at the Knight Theater, nice, cosy, bar and excellent food. The service was great, waiters so warm, friendly but professional. A must if you are downtown!"

We always take guests here from
out of town here for wonderful middle eastern cuisine. The grilled lamb kabob is perfection! The servers are very helpful explaining the menu, especially the delicious sides."

I really enjoy Mediterranean and
north African food. Have been cooking it at home for many years now. Levant was a wonderful chance to dine out and see "how it should be done." I came away with several inspirations and am already researching new dishes online. Now if I can just find a vendor in Charlotte that carries some of the unique ingredients..."

Went for a girls night dinner on
Mon, plan to share a bunch of dishes. The 5 of us ordered aps and bottles of wine. When placing our entre order, tried to order 2-3 mains ($25-35) to share, waiter informed us there would be a $5pp plate charge for sharing. Tacky given we were ordering aps, wine, planning to get dessert, oh and the restaurant was empty. When cashing out we asked the bill to be split even 5 ways and saw that the waiter had decided to add his gratuity onto the bill. I'm always a tad offended by this move, especially when out with women - we're capable of independently leaving an appropriate tip. The owner+wife(?) were impatiently starring at us from bar last 10 mins of meal. We hurried out. Ambiance great, food OK."

Quite frankly some of the tastiest
food that I have had. Having a european background and growing up in the south, I appreciate when Mediterranean restaurants do it the right way. The food was exceptional and some of the best that I have had in Charlotte. It wasn't that busy, but I believe that is because the establishment is new and locals having fully embraced the ethnicity of the restaurant. Also, the service was outstanding. The waiter even let me order an off menu beer that is now my favorite and go-to. Great job Levant, I will definitely be back!"

Awesome fresh food. Friendly,
knowledgable waitstaff. Owner operated, non-chain. Have been there twice. Will be back again."

Decor: beautiful furnishings
apparently imported (from Syria?). Food: OK to excellent. Best was falafel - crisp outside, soft interior, nicely seasoned. The rest: authentic but "average" - needing extra "kick". E.g.: the baba ghanoush was good, but flat - needing more lemon juice?. Service: the waiter was young, friendly,nice, but not terribly experienced. HOWEVER... serving of the main course (by another server) was well ... rude. We hadn't finished our starters when he brought out the entrees, and shoved them at us. We had to juggle the starter plates to make room, before we were ready for the main course. Unsatisfactory. Price: somewhat high but reasonable for "uptown". A pity .. Levant COULD have been great, but ..."

Levant is great and adds ethnic
diversity to Uptown. We liked the people, the service, the food, the atmosphere. We'll try dessert next time! It is not an inexpensive dining option but a very good one."

Levant has the widest choice and
most consistent high quality of any Middle Eastern restaurant I've tried in Charlotte. If going there once a month makes me a regular, then that I am. Well done."

The food was fresh and of high
quality. I had Chicken Kabobs and my husband had the lamb. Both were delicious. So glad to find this restraurant. kaffe for desert."

Wait staff was very pleasant and
responsive. Decor was a little sparse. Food was very tasty and authentic. There was "thumping music" (perhaps from an adjacent business/restaurant?) that was a bit distracting - but that was out of Levant's control. I enjoyed my experience there and will definitely go back."

Levant had very good kabobs,
hummus, etc. The beer selection was unique - some from Russia, Eastern Europe, etc. Good service, too!"
Dined on 6/2/2013
This was my first visit and I
loved the food, service, ambience, and locattion to the Knight Theater where were going to see Traces. The hummus and the kabobs were excellent. The veggies were perfect. Food presentation was beautifully done. I actually will be coming back for dinner and the theater on the 28th. Levant's is a gem and I am so glad a friend recommended it. Keep up the good work. You are a winner."

Our first time at Levant will not
be our last! We had a wonderful dinner prior to attending a show the Knight. We ate early, arrived to a nearly empty restaurant that got busier before we left. The menu offered many options. I ordered the Mediterranean shrimp skewers, my husband ordered a meat kebob -- along with selected sides. All were delicious, beautifully presented. My sides were so good that I'm considering making a meal of those the next time we go. Service was gracious and personable. This is the perfect place for a dining treat when you are in the area."

Great selection of Mediterranean
dishes and great service. If you don't have a big appetite I suggest splitting a couple of the Mezza plates, more than plenty!"
Dined on 4/1/2013
Interesting place - quiet, unique
but a bit gaudy decor, service fair... Food was the definitely the hit if the night - made the other oddities unimportant."
