    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:)

    I had the Roasted Mushroom pizza and it was the best pizza I think I have ever eaten. The crust was outstanding. My daughter had the Bar-be-que chicken pizza and she too said it was delicious. The service was very attentive. No complaints what so ever.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
