Gastro Pub | Uptown, Charlotte

Our server was great! He told us about the history of the cellar and we even got to check out inside the cellar. The food is delicious and portion size is more than enough to share between 2 people. One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte. More

Seafood | Uptown, Charlotte

Wow! One of, if not, the best meals we have had since we moved to Charlotte. Bring your best appetite as this tapa style seafood restuarant offers numerous options and you will want to try them all. Our waiter was very helpful and his suggestions were spot on. The 4 of us tried 8 different small plates. While we really enjoyed all of them we loved the okra, cauliflower, poke, calamari, shrimp and lobster plates. More

Incredible food, everyone in our group of 7 was thrilled. Server was attentive but I had to ask for information about the unusual menu, a brief review and daily specials should be proactively offered. The fried onion rings and grilled meatloaf dishes were especially popular. We will return!! More

At first we were a little nervous about the sincerity of a hotel restaurant that offers locally sourced food. We were pleasantly surprised to find the food delicious and well thought out. The pork belly with sticky rice and the deviled eggs were amazing. The side dishes were also a high point. I wish the main courses were designed more for sharing as they would have been too big for one person to comfortably eat. Would definitely go back More

My initial impression was not positive, as the Maitre D' seemed a bit flustered/ill-prepared. He thought that we were a party of 5 and proceeded to show us to a table for 6. We were a party of 4, and he seemed perplexed when I indicated the table that we would prefer. We were the ONLY people in the restaurant at the time. Thankfully, when we were finally seated, and our waitress, Tiffany, appeared, the situation greatly improved. Tiffany was delightful and competent, and the meal was a good value and delicious. However, we thought that the drinks were a bit pricey. More
