    Went during restaurant week. Very busy - we had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. Our server very friendly, but clearly new and did not seem to have support of management in helping get us served. VERY SLOW service - we felt we were forgotten several times. Also, bar out of two kinds of beer my husband requested. We had bread plates on table, but no bread offered. Just did not seem ready for a busy restaurant week. Food was fine but not great. Disappointed because location and online presentation had us excited.

    had to wait for over 1/2 hour for reservation. Had to ask for bread for the table. and when I put my fork on the appetizer plate because it was a messy appetizer server put it on my bread plate so no fresh fork for me. after the long wait they should have offered us a complimentary cocktail. won't go back. food was so so nothing special.

    We went to dinner during restaurant week. The food was delicious. Surf and turf was really good, as well as the branzino and my lamb shank. Loved the bread pudding too. The only disappointment is we were asked to leave after we paid our bill due to people waiting.

    20 th anniversary so they seated us in a special seat separate from the regular dining area like “head table” that made us feel good. It was a bit chilly in that seat as it was surrounded by glass, I wore my coat during the meal. The flooring was scuffed and worn needs to be refinished. The lighting could have been toned down to be warmer less bright. Staff was very friendly and inviting. Our server was very good, very attentive, food came out perfectly timed, server was on it with anything we needed and smiling the whole time. Better than most but not the best service we’ve ever had. Food was good, but nothing really stood out as being great. Dessert was good, but again nothing stood out as OMG I want more. Overall was a good dining experience. Not out top but I’d say top 10.

    My guest and I came for restaurant week. Items were tasty and well presented. Oyster Rockefeller was a highlight. We ordered off regular menu as well to have the crab cakes. The dining spaces could use an update in style. However the space is open and well lit.

    If you’re thinking of getting the surf and turf for queens feast, don’t. Tasted like a 4 day old McDonald’s “steak” and the shrimp was microwaved 30 seconds too long. Good mashed potatoes and clam chowder though. A truly puzzling queen’s feast experience.

    We took advantage of their “restaurant week” menu. Every course was perfectly displayed and delicious. We are new to Charlotte and have been disappointed a few times with the dinner we were served at a few restaurants. This spot was terrific. Since we have season tickets to the Blumenthal Broadway Lights Series, we will certainly be back.

    I took my husband out for his birthday. This was our first time here. We were both very impressed. We stared with the calamari which was delicious and flavorful. I ordered the lobster ravioli and my husband order the prime ribeye with a lobster tail and a side of truffle macaroni and cheese. Our entrees were delicious. The truffle macaroni and cheese and the lobster were delicious. We finished the night with the crème brûlée which was perfect! We will definitely be returning.

    Not our first visit here and never disappointed in the food. Had a 5:45 reservation to be sure we could make 7:30 play. There was no one at the hostess stand/ bar when we entered. Sign said wait to be seated, so we waited. And waited. Finally we entered dining room and stopped first server we saw. When we were seated we placed drink orders. I didn’t clock it but it seemed like a longer wait to receive the drinks. Finished our drinks and waited some more. (Kudos to the employee that fixed our very wobbly table.) By now it’s 6:15, so flagged our server again and said we needed to be done by 7:00. She said she’ll tell chef. Our food arrived quickly, was piping hot. Spouse had filet mignon and I had the scallops. Portions were perfect, and both were unbelievably delicious. The food saved our experience. Looking forward to eating there again, will make sure we allow more time before an event.

    Overall it was pretty good. I ordered a salad which I never got but it was ok because I would just wait for the entree. I ordered the black pepper shrimp entree which was very good but I only got 6 shrimp and the sautéed spinach that it came with was only a few tablespoons at most. That’s why I rated the value very low. It was very loud and we found ourselves shouting to one another in conversation. I may try it again but there are so many other places that it will be awhile before I’m back.

    We went to Bernardin's for dinner before a show. The service was friendly and responsive; the pre-dinner drinks (Parisian Martini and gin and tonic), were just right; the food (vegetable rolls, venison and scallops with risotto) was excellent; and the chocolate torte was a perfect way to top off the meal. When the restaurant got very busy, a staff member (a manager?) was roaming the room making sure things kept moving. And, for dinner at a nice restaurant in uptown Charlotte, the prices were reasonable. This will definitely be a return venue for future uptown events.

    The seating for 2 was tight - very close to another table. Dinner was average. Most all of the items on the menu contained the same ingredients just in a different way for the entrees. Server/wait staff appeared uninterested. I always thought it looked so inviting from the outside - however, did not find the inside to be so.

    Trying to find a reservation for 9 a couple of days before Christmas was not easy in Charlotte. Never been to Bernardin's but they were able to accommodate us, so we gave it a shot. They did not disappoint. Everything was wonderful...food, atmosphere, and most impressive was our server. I don't recall her name but she was very knowledgable about all of the entrees that we questioned her about and made suggestions based on our different tastes. We all were very pleased with what she recommended. EVERYTHING was delicious. A perfect way to celebrate 3 birthdays that night! Will definitely go back.

    Withouy a doubt, one of the best restaurants in Charlotte! Everything about this restaurant was special and it was the perfect place for our 22nd anniversary dinner. The appetizers(calamari, mussels, brussel sprouts), main entrees(lamb, scallops), and dessert(creme brulee, sorbet) were all cooked/prepared to perfection and delicious. Our waitress, Nip, was so kind and personable. The ambience was really perfect. The table we had made us feel like royalty for a night...until our Uber was a Hyundai lol Thank you, Bernadins, for a very memorable experience on our anniversary. We're already looking forward to the next time.
