 (Chicago)·Dined 3 days ago

Been to 300 East many times as we love it there. Went with friends for my birthday last Sunday. We sat at a four top main floor near the bar. Our waiter was short with us and rude. Sour face the entire time and did not accurately describe my dish. We had starters, entrees and desserts and sides. The special side risotto was delivered cold and so did not eat. My shrimp entree was lukewarm but I ate the shrimp. I asked waiter what shrimp was served with on plate and he said kale. Forgot to manage the large portion of polenta which why I ordered the risotto. He was argumentative with one of my guests who had put one of the wine buckets on the two top next to us when the guest apologized and said he would just put it on the floor. The waiter kept making sarcastic remarks and wouldn't give it up. Never refilled the sodas, or asked us how the food was. He really ruined the night and my birthday. Struggled to explain the ice cream of the night which I had and was very good. The bartender on the other hand was pleasant helpful and so nice. Wish he would have been our waiter. My guests are regulars at 300 East too and we are all hoping this experience was an anomaly.

Megan, our server was excellent! She gave suggestions, was knowledgeable of the menu, did not rush us, was friendly. We ate here over 20 years ago and we’re back in town visiting ~ 300 East is still outstanding! Food was delicious!

Have been meeting with friends for brunch before the Panther Football games for

have Eggs Benedict and always enjoy.

It was a little more casual than expected so I felt overdressed, but that did not detract from my dining experience. My husband and I tried several of the menu items and all were delicious. My favorite part was dessert though! I had the white chocolate brioche pudding and it was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Kudos to the pastry chef :)

The French toast stuffed with Brie and pear was amazing! Would go back just for that dish! My friend got the spinach cheese gratan and it was wonderful as well. Wasn’t the best bloody in the world, but the food was over the top!

Our waiter Logan was extremely personable and attentive. He answered all of our questions and gave us good suggestions and recommendations on what to order. It was a girls night get-together and we rarely see each other so it was nice not to feel rushed. We’ve been dining here for years but the service this time was truly exceptional. We even joked about how we wanted to request to be seated in his section from now on. Food was on point and delicious as always!

300 East has an amazing entree and dessert menu. The staff is always nice and willing to go out of their way to make your experience enjoyable. My favorite thing to order is the bacon-wrapped filet that is stuffed with gorgonzola. Can't beat the price for what you get! I highly recommend.

We come here every time we happen to be in Charlotte and it never disappoints. Food, service and value are always spot on. Location and ambiance are also positive points. It is located in what looks like a residential house and it is also very near a large Charlotte shopping mall and the airport.

300 East is one of our standby restaurants. Food is reliable, nice wine selection. Pleasant room downstairs. I do not like the upstairs space (cramped, low ceiling). While it was not busy on this Saturday after Thanksgiving, you usually want a reservation for lunch on weekends.

Katie was our server (I believe that’s her name; I overheard her saying she’s pregnant). Food was fantastic, and they had half price bottled wine that night. We got apps, entrees, dessert and a bottle of Cab. Very interesting sorbet choice, muscadine! We go there often and it never fails!

Was supposed to meet a friend for half price wine by the glass and a quick bite on Monday night. Oops, last minute work conflict but I decided to stay anway. 300 East is casual and comfortable and I felt fine eating alone. My server was attentive and knowledgable. I had the pork tenderloin with mustard seed mashed potatoes. It was served with wonderful fried kale. Overall, great flavors. My only concern is that it wasn't very hot. I also had the ginger molasses ice cream sandwich, which was outstanding. I would definitely go back again.

I'm a native Charlottean and can't believe I had never been to 300 East. The food was wonderful and the cozy table in the corner was perfect on a chilly night! The french onion soup was to die for and the crab cakes were out of this world! Such a great Charlotte place tucked away on East Blvd!

300 East was wonderful! Took my boyfriend there for his birthday and we really enjoyed ourselves. After we started digging into entrees, I was beginning to wonder whether he loved me or his hanger steak more! Awesome food, great atmosphere, and fantastic service.

We enjoy 300 East for Sunday brunch weekly, but last Thursday on a spur of the moment we went for dinner. Great wine list and reasonable prices (1/2 price on Wednesday - we missed it by a day!). I enjoyed a great bowl of onion soup with just the right amount of melted cheese on top and around the bowl. My wife had the hangar steak which was prepared as desired and enough to take some home for later. I ordered the pork tenderloin which was a sizable piece and deliciously prepared. Not a great lover of kale, but the veggie was 'fried' kale and it was very tasty. As always 300 East has a unique menu with novel additions, great service, very reasonable prices and cozy atmosphere.

 (Tampa)·Dined on November 5, 2017

The food and service at 300 East were both very good, but the ambience detracted from our enjoyment of the experience. The tables were crowded too closely together, seemingly based more upon business considerations than upon the enjoyment of diners. The noise level, characterized by Open Table's rating scale as "energetic", might also be characterized as "maddening." The surroundings are not designed to deaden sound, and the many tables crowded into the small space ensured a cacophony that was nothing short of overwhelming. Still, very good food at reasonable prices. Bring a pair of earplugs and enjoy!

First visit: good hanger steak, nice booth. Second visit: Hanger steak was rare and stringy; I was sick the next day. Third visit: Shrimp was chewy and overcooked. The place is crowded, tables too close together, and quite loud. Upstairs tables underneath vents blowing cold air. I won't go back.
