    My party arrived at 1130am. We were seated immediately and our server came to the table immediately. I ordered that crab cake entree and it was really good. I would definitely recommend. The 2 others in my party enjoyed their food. We all commented on how good the food and atmosphere was. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived and totally packed when we left but the noise wasn't a bother.

    Consistently delivers well prepared and served dishes with flavor. One of our favorites in Charlotte. The only thing they are missing is an espresso machine. Wine selection is good - as well as deserts which are often an afterthought. Try the creme brulee - best in Charlotte in my opinion. Not too sweet and great texture. If you want to try something off the beaten path, go for the Emu which is served with some excellent mashed sweet potato, veggies and mushrooms in a lovely sauce. Or go for the scallops, tuna or salmon - all excellent. Great lunch menu as well. Love this place. We will return soon.

    Bernardins was a beautiful restaurant! The ambiance was warm and inviting. The service was impeccable and the food was absolutely perfect. The cocktails that I had were good, though the presentation could be a bit more in line with the ambiance. The value of the food you get was great!! Each dish was prepared perfectly and presented just beautifully! I will definitely be back.

    I had high expectations when I booked a table to celebrate my friend’s birthday and it far exceeded my vision. The dining room is beautiful and comfortable. My waiter, Javier was friendly and most efficient…..he really added to the celebration! The food was perfection with the oyster appetizer being the best fried food I’ve eaten in years. Our martinis were chilled to perfection! I had the filet medallions with mashed potatoes and the perfectly steamed and seasoned vegetables. I particularly enjoyed the seasoning used on the steak! We had creme brûlée for dessert and were not disappointed! Every staff member was friendly and pleasant and eager to serve. We LOVED it!

    My spouse and I had not been back to Bernadin's since before Covid and decided to make a trip to an old favorite for a special dinner. Overall a great evening with top food, service and environment that made it one of the better nights out in the last year or so. Reserved a table along a wall and lucked out by getting a 4 top so that the spouse and I could sit beside each other and face out to the dining room. Great people watching without having to be obvious about it. Great attitude starting with the hostess and all servers! Great appetizers with the goat cheese tart and smoked pork belly (a bit spicy though and did not expect it) then the sea bass special and grilled emu. All delicious and perfect! Dessert was the peanut butter and banana cheesecake with coffee. Lots of people there for pre show meals, birthdays, date nights, etc. Great to now know they have an event space next door for private parties, etc. Kudos to the staff and management here!

    I truly was not impressed. Food was average and service was sub-average. It was my birthday and I felt I wanted to experience fabulous. The decor was nice. I just felt that the overall experience (food and service) was just average. Also, location and parking were extremely confusing for persons new to the city of Charlotte and the downtown area. I have no major complaints but I just was no impressed.

    My best friend and I came just for a dinner date. It was both our first time here and we absolutely loved it! The server, the drinks, the food. I decided to try Emu and OMG i still can't get over it. My friend has lobster ravioli. We both cleaned our plates. I do not eat sweet potatoes and loved them! I can't even put into words how delicious this food was and what a great time we had. We definitely plan on coming back!

    Food was superb I would add more Bok Choy, mushrooms and cranberries to the Ahi, perhaps a bit more heat and a little less rice. Still trying to find cappuccino and espresso, the search continues. Crazy convenient for an evening at the Knight Theater.

    This is our first time in Charlotte. We were excited to try this restaurant based on the reviews. However, our experience was far short than our expectations. The chowder was tasty but lukewarm. The wedge salad average. The entrees, ribeye and fish were good but nothing special to make us want to return. The peach and blueberry cobbler was good. Our server did not know what beer was available- it took three tries to get a beer because the beers on the menu were not available. The worst thing about this restaurant was the noise level- it wax extremely loud. I could not wait to finish my food to get out of there.
