    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.

    Saturday night dinner with friends. Seated on time and drink order taken promptly. Service mediocre after that...not because of table size. All the pizzas were enjoyable, the mushroom being my favorite. The special, a seafood plate of shrimp and scallops, was both misrepresented by the waiter and nothing special at all. The location is great for us and the Phillips Place Plaza is a pretty place for an after dinner stroll.

    Loved the patio dining at WP. The patio is off to the side of the restaurant, in the shade, ceiling fans. It was at least 5-10 cooler on the patio vs the direct afternoon/evening sun. Fabulous. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious. We will definitely be coming back.

    Our waitress was extremely nice and professional and attentive but unfortunately that was the highlight. The eggplant parm was awful. They ran out of one of their Sunday specials by 7:30pm. Two of us received our dinner and waited for at least 5 minutes for the other two to receive their dinners while during half of that time we could see the other two meals on the chef's counter waiting to be carried to the table. They did adjust our bill for the unsatisfactory eggplant parm however since we did have a disappointing experience it will be tough coming back.

    It took 15 minutes after seating before anyone came to offer water. The service for the rest of the time was equally slow. I could see that our waitress had some large parties but it also looked like there was plenty of waitstaff doing nothing. The manager (I presume, in a sport coat), started serving tables himself. I don't know what the problem was. The food was good and the desserts were to die for...gelato bar and chocolate cake were our table's choice. We have been before and I will give it another try, but our guests will not.

  • Good but expensive
    Runnergirl73VIP
    Dined on 5/16/2014
    Dined at Wolfgang Puck before a movie Friday night. I had the spinach salad which was very good and large enough for two people. I also ordered the muscles which were decent but not exceptional - I prefer the ones at Vivace. Our service was awesome. The waiter was friendly, helpful but provided quick service - I never felt rushed. The noise level was not an issue on Friday at 6pm but I've heard that it can get noisy during peak times. I've dined here twice and each time my bill was $40 which is expensive given the type of food served. I wish they would offer smaller salads at a lower price. Also a bar/happy hour menu would be nice. Will return if I can split an entree with someone and/or during restaurant week.

    We went to Wolfgang for Mother's Day and, honestly, it was because I couldn't get a reservation at my other restaurants. We had been there before and liked it. Although full, it was not packed but the service fell short. The hostess forgot to give me a flower which annoyed my husband and five kids (well-behaved by the way). The waiter, similar to the hostess, seemed annoyed he got another table and it showed. The food was good but my husband and I felt the menu was lacking. This being our third time, we felt there was nothing we would want to get again nor was there a signature dish we had to have. We decided after this most recent dinner we'll take Wolfgang off our list.

    We had a great lunch at Wolfgang Puck's Pizza Bar for Mother's Day. The staff had no problems keeping up with the crowds of people. Two different managers checked to see if our lunch was going well. The mother's received a flower and a complementary dessert. There were lots of tables with kids there but the adult menu is fit for grown-ups. My Dad said the gluten free pizza crust was the best he's ever had.

    Really enjoyed our visit, and definitely recommend Tuesday night for the 1/2 price wine bottles. The food is just creative enough to feel fresh & exciting, yet familiar enough that you basically know what you're going to get. The appetizer garlic/pesto bread is out of this world! Think oven fresh cinnamon buns, but savory and with pesto/garlic rolled up in the bread instead of cinnamon & sugar. To die for!

    I like this restaurant and so does my family, I justbwished they would be more consistent with the food. Every time we order the same pizza's yet they come out with slightly different ingredients and variations of the same ingredients. It's a bit like pot look if you are going to get the version you like or maybe not. I still like it there though.
