    Was so excited to see this signature dish finally made it to Charlotte, while tasty it does not reflect the original from CA. It was very small and if there was any chicken in it I did not find any. Wolfgang would not be impressed. Either bring it up to the original or rename it, as mentioned it was tasty jas a side salad.

    The meal was just average. Wolfgang Puck is on the marquee simply to draw in business. The quality of food is no different than you might get it a Brix restaurant for a lot less money. The quality of food is very overpriced for the value.

    This was the first time visiting the Charlotte location as we normally dine in the Greensboro Wolfgangs and this was wonderful. Our son is a student at USC and Charlotte is the halfway point for us to meet. We were excited to try this location and it exceeding our expectations. Our server was friendly and attentive and the food was wonderful! This will be our new meeting place! Thanks for a great meal and a great evening!

    My husband and I got a last minute reservation here later on Friday night. The restaurant was still fairly full, but the entire staff was very friendly and personable. Our server was especially nice and helpful. We ordered the hummus appetizer because we rated it pretty much the best hummus in town after we had it last time. The crostini that came with the hummus was out of the world the first time, but this time it came out cool, which made a big difference on taste. Not quite as amazing as we remembered, but still worth ordering. My husband really enjoys the pizza here, and I was very pleased with the salmon, sautéed kale and cauliflower puree dish that I ordered. Moderate prices, tasty food, fun casual environment. We'll be back!

    We were a party of 6 for an early dining. We choose a 5 pm seating to take advantage of the 1/2 price appies and pizzas, and of course, 1/2 price cocktails. Butternut squash soup was delicious to start. A chicken meatball pizza with mozzarella, not ricotta was equally flavorful. Not sure our companions were as thrilled with their selections; e.g. pizza with salmon, pepperoni rolls appie. Calamari was very good. The only really hiccup was finalizing the bill; seems not everything was correctly discounted at 1/2 off; read carefully. Drinks were great as was Adam's service and attentiveness.

    We enjoy WPPB, but they need to adjust the seating attitude. The hostesses rarely grant requests, often make people wait while tables are open, and generally make getting seated a much more dramatic event than the rest of the meal.

    As always, we had a wonderful experience. Friendly greeting, quickly seated at our table, friendly service and dependably great meals. The menu changed a bit for the Fall season. We tried the GRILLED PEACH watercress, smoked prosciutto, burrata pizza and loved it! Even our picky 15 yr old loved it! Always a great choice is the Baby Kale salad - the lemon vinaigrette is so tasty! (dip your pizza crust in a side of the vinaigrette:)

    Had the mussels and fennel sausage pizza (minus roasted garlic). Very, very good. Dessert was the donuts and milkshake-decadent, but yummy. After 5 cocktails my wife and i were ready to go. Another Wednesday at Wolfgang's that was a hit. Currently from 3 pm to 6 pm during the week, appies and pizzas are 1/2 off. Great deal and very good service from Alexis.

    I've been here many times and have generally had good/great experiences. Went here to celebrate a birthday last week and had a less than awesome experience. The food was good, but the service was pretty terrible from the moment we walked in the door to claim our reservation. So many great places in Charlotte with awesome service - I probably won't give this place another shot for awhile again.

    My husband and I joined two other couples for dinner on a Friday night. The place was packed out and loud, but we were still able to have a conversation. I highly recommend the house salad, and the goat cheese and spicy chicken pizzas were both excellent. We split a scoop of the maple-ginger gelato, and it was delicious. Will definitely go back.

    My husband and I were around Southpark and in search of a more casual restaurant for dinner when we came across Wolfgang Puck. Even though it is a "pizza bar," the service and wait staff were really, really good. That alone speaks volumes when you come to a restaurant for the first time! The wine and beer list was pretty good, with a few local brews on draft. We ordered the hummus and crostini appetizer to start out, and it was fabulous!! The bread alone was insanely delicious, and the hummus was the perfect compliment to it and was prepared perfectly. We opted for pizzas for dinner and had plenty of leftovers to take home. The waiter told us their dough takes 9 days to create, and the end result was a VERY tasty crust! Nice place!

    Lunch on Wednesday; 50% off cocktails. We had 2 each-and they do them well. Food is always good. My wife had soup and 1/2 sandwich which she loved. The minestrone was loaded with veggies. Chicken caprese sandwich with a small caesar was very good as well; very personable and engaging, in a pleasant way.

    What a good discovery this time. We arrived around 4:30 pm after some shopping at Phillips Place. We were greeted with 2 major benefits; cocktails at 50% off and appetizers and pizzas at 50% off. How can you beat that. 2 cocktails later along with mussels in white wine sauce and a fennel sausage pizza' all was fine in the world. One note if you're not a garlic fan is to have them hold the roasted garlic on the pizza; a bit strong for me. At this early time there were few patrons. Hope this was a timing issue and nothing more. We always enjoy Puck's food and drinks.

    Had a great lunch with $5 cocktails; what's not to like. The chicken caprese is very flavorful with the pesto garnish. A side Caesar is a perfect match. Grilled chicken Caesar was equally good. So far always a good lunch with the Puck. The restaurant was very quiet with few patrons. I just don't get it; the food offerings, the creativity are well done. Perhaps they need to consider another Puck at Stonecrest or Blakeney; just saying.

    Met some friends from Atlanta at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant and, as usual, it did not disappoint. The restaurant has a nice vibe and great wait staff. Plus the food is always good. Our friends had the linguini and the ravioli and raved about both---and we had the pizzas. I love their mushroom pizza. I know I can always count on this restaurant to be a great place to go---whether it's just me and my husband or meeting up with friends.

    We just relocated to Charlotte from Charleston.This past weekend we found Wolfgang Puck's restaurant in our new neighborhood and were pleasantly surprised to find a true neighborhood gem with fresh, creatively prepared food delivered by enthusiastic, well trained servers. As a former restaurant manager, I appreciate the attention given to serving hot food piping hot and cold food served on chilled plates. We went Friday evening and enjoyed it so much we invited our new neighbor to join us on Saturday! Those little homemade cinnamon sugar doughnuts served with the chocolate milk shake are addictive! Kudos to Adam and Kevin. They both provided amazing service and were a major reason for our return business!

    We had a very enjoyable dinner with our two grandchildren. The food was good but a bit on the high side for the portions served. An example is the baked eggplant for $16 that did not have a side dish of pasta or any bread for the table. That being said all of the food was very good as was the service and the management staff who made it a point to be available and were very pleasant. Would I return for another visit? Yes I would.

    Enjoyed dinner. There were 5 of us, we ordered some apps to share and each ordered a pizza. All enjoyed their food. The service was a little off, but it was fine overall. Example: we ordered calamari, and when the server brought it, said he would bring some marinara sauce. We started eating, and it was 15 minutes later when it came out. Oops--we had finished it already. But he put it on the table anyway! It made it more embarrassing. While that moment stood out, the remainder of the evening was uneventful. The food was good, we would definitely return.
