The Dover Sole was outstanding and so was our waitress Maria. Next time we want to try sitting outside, but were going to the Alt Sounds/Symphony at the Knight Theatre and of course I didn't want to have the windy hair look going there. But it's the perfect eating spot before a performance at the Knight. More

This is my go to place to take interview candidates. Only once in multiple visits have I had something to eat that I thought was just ok. I like the layout of the restaurant. The tables are not crowded together but there is room in between. My favorite items are the chicken parm, chicken cacciatore, petit filet salad or the salmon burger. More

Probably our favorite restaurant for special evenings. The food was excellent, but the service was not up to what we expect and have experienced previously. I am less than impressed when a famous person, VIP or regular patron comes into the restaurant and the level of service drops immediately for my wife and I. More

Mediterranean | Uptown, Charlotte

We're a long time married couple in our 70s, and we're major fans of Cafe Siena. We come here every year for New Year's Eve, and when we're going to the Blumenthal Center in downtown Charlotte for one of their cultural events. But I've also gone with much younger friends, sat at the bar and talked for hours. The staff is very friendly, easy to work with and knowledgable; we definitely pay a lot of attention to their food recommendations. The food is really good, ranging from classic to creative. We can't say anything about lunch because we don't go to that area except in the evenings. This is definitely a great place. More
