A word from The Asbury
With its warm service and artistic food presentation, The Asbury at The Dunhill Hotel puts a sophisticated spin on the local food movement and traditional Southern dishes. Led by rising-star Executive Chef Chris Coleman, The Asbury is a tribute to Charlotte’s southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to the area and specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the local region.

Located on the corner of N. Tryon & 6th Streets at the heart of Uptown Charlotte’s cultural district, it’s only fitting that the restaurant features local art curated in collaboration with McColl Center for Art + Innovation.

Open seven days a week and serving the longest weekend brunch in Charlotte.

    Four of us met here for Sunday brunch. None of us live in Charlotte and we were driving from different directions. We didn't want a family after-church crowd spot since we hadn't seen each other in a while & wanted a quieter place to catch up. We also wanted off-street parking. And good food, of course. We got all three of these in a comfortable atmosphere. The menu isn't huge, but everybody found something that piqued there appetite, and, as it turned out, tickled their taste buds. No food was left on any plate, be it an upscale hamburger or trout hash. On top of all this, the service was incredibly good: attentive, knowledgeable and helpful, but never cloying or intrusive. We'll go back & recommend it to others.

    We got lucky while driving and looking for a stylish place to do some light celebrating. The 1st thing we noticed were the aesthetics in and outside - classy. The food however was second to none. We enjoyed it so much that we asked to meet the chef that prepared our meals. He wasn't the head chef, but rather and apprentice. Hector Gonzolez (forgive the name spelling), obliged us and came out to meet us. A very gracious young man who gave all the credit for his obvious talent to the head chef. He also graciously made a small dessert (on the house) which complimented both our meal and drinks. What more can I say... we'll be back Sincerely, Visitor from the Northeast Coast

    This is our third visit and the new fall menu is out. My friends found combinations a little strange but the wait staff said the chef would substitute side items. Scallops were perfectly prepared and chicken two ways was very good but both the trout and sides were less satisfactory-either over cooked or heavy on salt. Smores dessert was delicious.

    I haven't been to the Asbury since it became the Asbury and I like the changes in the decor. We came for dinner and enjoyed our meal. The service was attentive, but not rushed. The combination of flavors provided on the charcuterie board were delicious. I had the pot roast special, which was satisfying but not too heavy. My husband had the cast-iron scallops, which he said were perfectly cooked (and he's picky about that). I like that they offered a pickled vegetable as a side (ours was kale that night). My dessert was a deconstructed pumpkin s'more. The homemade marshmallows mixed with chocolate ganache and pumpkin puree were delicious. The olive oil cake on the second dessert was a bit dry but that was the only minor disappointment.

    This is definitely a hidden gem for Charlotte! Wonderful meal. The new fall menu that Chris Coleman has put together is fantastic. The waiter was the most professional I have had in Charlotte! And yes, a good waiter is a part of the dining experience! Great personality, knowledgeable about the food AND the wine. Wanted to make sure we had just the right bottle of wine for our table of four after inquiring about our likes. He hit the mark. I have eaten lunch at The Asbury before which was also wonderful, but this was my first dinner. This is definitely a place I will return to. The bar at The Dunhill was great too!

    We had lunch at The Asbury on the first day of a new menu. The menu is sparse but seemed to have something for everyone. The butternut bisque was creamy and flavorful. The farro salad with goat cheese was delicious, perfectly seasoned and quite satisfying. We appreciated the chef coming out to check on us and asking about our thoughts on the new menu. Definitely worth going back to see what else he creates.

    "Farm to Table" hitches itself to a 21st century idea of Southern cuisine. Everything we tasted was delicious. The chorizo sausage balls had just the right amount of spice along with a nice exterior crunch. The tomato sandwich (fully loaded in our case with pimento cheese and bacon) was everything you could want in a Southern Summer Sandwich. And the Summer Salad was as bright and fresh as an artist's palette.

    Made reservation-but turned out not to be necessary. Only one other couple in the dining room at 8pm! We sat at one of their sidewalk tables on a pleasant evening. Waiter was cordial. professional. Had deviled eggs topped with fried cornichons and a salad with smoked burrata. The grouper special was cooked perfectly. Tried their "PB + J" dessert-no complaints. With a bottle of wine tab was 90 bucks. The restaurant biz is indeed tough when a place like this is not packed on a Thursday night. Their description of themselves as "Contemporary Southern" seems a bit pretentious, but don't let that put you off-this place is worth checking out.

    Disappointing. We had reservations for a Tuesday night. Server was disinterested and clearly didn't want to be there. He was polite, but I felt like I was annoying him with questions regarding the menu. Cheese plate was comical. A dollop of jam the size of a dime. Scrawny green thing as a "garnish." Ceviche was a joke. A few thinly sliced pieces of grouper, lime juice and that measley green "garnish." Sausage balls were overdone. The chipotle sauce was good, but very scant. One scallop in cast iron skillet. One! Entree with Grouper and Lima beans was mediocre, not worth $28. Roasted potatoes with garlic and jalapeños was ok.Some undercooked. Atmosphere was quaint. Too bad food and service lacked in many ways. Will not return.

    We decided to try the Asbury before seeing a show at Belk Theatre since it's less than a block away. So convenient. The service started off superbly until the dining room filled and then our server became a human pinball and the attentiveness level dropped significantly. We couldn't wave him over to tell him one of our fish dishes was undercooked. That being said, it was quickly remedied after that and the other three meals were declared to be top-notch. We don't mind paying for a great meal, but we thought these prices were a bit too high compared to the portion sizes. Bottom line: great location, great food, inconsistent service, and just-fair value.

    Biscuits were great! Entrée warm, not hot when it came to table. Shrimp and grits had tasty sauce and the peaches were a pleasant addition, but shrimp were small and not particularly flavorful. Nothing wrong with the dish, just not memorable or noteworthy. Others with me described the meal as "OK."

    Had been wanting to try this spot for awhile. Went for lunch. Restaurant is among the noisiest I have been in in a long time. There is nothing to absorb any background noise. We were in a booth up front. Table of 6 near us but they were not crazy loud. Menu is inventive and interesting. Had the mushroom tacos and they were quite good but more tortilla then filling. Felt a bit meager on filling. Gaucho beans and fries were very good. Desserts were imaginative. Service was good if a bit overly attentive. Interrupting our conversation to ask how things were several times. However I would prefer overly attentive vs being ignored. Our server was knowledgeable and eager to please. I will go again but if noisy at dinner...

    The menu doesn't really offer that unique of experience the appetizer selection was weak at best. Our server actually made the experience better. The plate presentation was nice but the plates were cold therefore the food was cold. Some of the plates we had just didn't wow us in terms of flavor or taste. The fish feature was very good but again served on a cold plate. Not enough excitement on the menu to go back

    Had the spicy fried chicken sandwich with slaw and it was delicious. My friends were torn between the tacos and the pork belly Cuban sandwich, but ordered the Cuban. It was good, but next time they are getting the tacos. This is one of my favorite lunch spots, the service is always top notch. I need to try it out for dinner.

    Our second visit and this one was even better than the first. Our server was though and knowledgeable about each of the dishes - many creative takes on "old standards" along with some new ones. Particularly notable was the vegetarian/vegan dish that my wife and the server came up with by combining the vegetable portions of several main courses - "magnificent" was her comment. One of our dining companions remarked that the scallops were the best he's ever had (a lot for someone who spent a number of years on the coast. Overall a delightful evening.

    The Asbury is a hidden gem in uptown. Located inside the Dunhill Hotel, it is the only farm-to-table restaurant in uptown that I am aware of and the food speaks for itself. The ambiance of this restaurant is simple and elegant. The dishes have some of the most vibrant flavors I have encountered. I will be back in a heartbeat and we owe it to such a place to spread the word!

    Our group was underwhelmed. Would not recommend to others. The service started off okay, but got much worse. Once we ordered, we had to wait a long time to receive our food. The server spent too much time OVERLY describing the food and where it came from. I get it's from farm to fork, but he went on WAY too long about the food. They should spend more time getting your food to you on time and asking about your bill at the end. Took forever to get our check. The appetizers were good. The salads -- let's just say the portions were TINY. For what we paid, the portion should have been more substantial. The entrees were good, but mine was not hot -- almost cold. Very disappointing.

    The server knew his wines, though I think the food was played up beyond what was delivered. It was delicious, but the preparation was not mind-blowing. The liver mousse was very minerally and the pickled peaches were too sour. The fried flounder was expertly done and the grits were very well executed. For upscale southern food I don't think you could find better locally.

    Quiet setting, they could work on the interior design, very bland, but the food was very good. I think the server was brand new because she had no idea what the specials were or what was in each dish and had to go back and look it up. Food wise I would recommend the smoke trout sandwich or burger, both were amazing

    My wife and I enjoyed the bacon fig jam drop biscuits. Very yummy. My wife's scallops were excellent. My ribeye was mediocre at best. The outside was seared far too much, the crust was closer to burnt. Lackluster flavor. Small portions. Overpriced menu. We finished eating at 6:30 and were the only people there on a Saturday night! (That should tell you something). There's a lot better places to eat nearby for the same price, if not cheaper. For true upscale southern food, go to the Kings Kitchen around the corner. And what's with the weird blue painted walls? Blue is not a food color and makes the place look weird. I'm glad I ate here using a gift card a family member gave us. $97 for an app, two drinks, and two entrees is too much.

    We were staying at the Dunhill and had originally planned on dining elsewhere, but due to weather concerns, changed our minds and got a table at the Asbury. Very pleased that we did. The sampler plate for appetizer/snacks was great. Highly recommend the deviled eggs, the pickled vegetables, and the squash fondue. We ordered the fish special and the steak. The fish was grouper. Both were great. It is a farm to fork restaurant that lists all the locations where they get their food. I'd go back again even if not staying at the hotel.

    The Asbury is an exceptionally good restaurant. We were greeted at the door by a very nice young lady who gave us our choice of seating. We took the table by the window and were able to watch the street activities and people passing by. Our server and the hostess were both very personable and performed their jobs with great skill and grace. The food was excellent, the wine was very good, the atmosphere extremely pleasant, and the service was exceptional. We will certainly enjoy dinner there again in the near future. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone seeking a fine dining experience without feeling stuffy.

    The Ashbury next to the historic Dunhill Hotel is a new-ish restaurant in Center City Charlotte. It is a small space which creates an intimate environment. Great bold color on the wall with strong graphic photography used as the art! Our waiter Danny was excellent very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. He made great recommendations. This is not a light meal as one would expect from Southern food, but the portions are just the right size to fill you up without overstuffing you. The dropped biscuits with bacon jam was a delicious start and we ended with a cornmeal cake with berries and honey butter. One of my top dining experience in Charlotte! Definitely worth a checking out.

    There wasn't nearly enough of it. If we had been really hungry, our meals would have been little more than expensive appetizers. Also, everything in the meal was warm, but not hot - as if it sat cooling before being served. The waiter, while friendly enough, failed to ask us if we wanted more beer when we ran out, though our water glasses were refilled several times. While the food was extremely flavorful and good tasting, it isn't enough to overcome the many things that were wrong to recommend this to anyone.

    The Asbury is a wonderfully, quaint restaurant in the heart of downtown Charlotte. The food is prepared with excellent skill and careful attention to detail. There are many options on the menu from snacks to sides, and main entrees to desserts. You will not be disappointed in the quality, quantity, or price of your meal. The hostess greets you with a smile and the wait staff makes you feel special as they attend to your every dining need. The Asbury often changes its selection of modern art, which adds to the unique quality of the atmosphere. We have had the opportunity to visit the Asbury two times now, and it is our favorite dining destination! Southern food with a modern flair. Visit now and...enjoy!

    My husband and I dined for the first time, at the Asbury. The sidewalk is tiny, but we knew that...the drinks were good, the food, generally was fantastic and creative. My only issue was with the proteins...bad product? The lamb chops were filled with grizzle and fat and just tough. The flavors and accompaniments were wonderful. Next visit I'll order a vegetarian dish as the chef clearly "gets it" when it comes to fresh veggies. I do not like the feel of the dining room and won't go in winter due to the depressing nature of that space. Sorry to be blunt but that's what I feel about the space. Hope the protein buying improves so that we can speak highly of all aspects...we live uptown so love supporting good, local places.
