We went for our wedding anniversary and were treated to Rose. The grouper special was delicious and the bread pudding for desserts a must.

Custom shop is always great. It is an under appreciated gem in Charlotte. If you’re a foodie visiting Charlotte, you will be very happy with Custom Shop.

the food was fresh, well cooked and well seasoned.... as usual. Pork chops were excellent, trigger fish was very good just a little light on the portion size. The waiter offered an excellent wine suggestion and seemed very knowledgeable.

Menu very limited and very pricy. Service was pretentious. Not very seasonal in feel. Just not worth it. Hadn't been in years and thought we'd give it a try based on other reviews but honestly don't get the attraction. Sorry.

We had a nice relaxing anniversary dinner. The food was creative (but not showy or pretentious), and very well prepared with attention given to the small details. For example, the fingerling potatoes were boiled first and then lightly pan fried to create a little crunch on the outside and coat them lightly. Also, the civiche had very thin slices of a small hot pepper that added just the right bit of heat but didn't cover up the fantastic fresh taste of the fish. My wife's seared tuna was delicious and a very generous portion. My duck was very fatty, but I think that's how duck is. The sauce was again just right - flavorful but not overbearing. The Brussels sprouts were in a delicious cream sauce. Bread pudding desert was absolutely delicious and creatively done. Big chunks of bread with some kind of lightly caramelized crust on the outside, flavored throughout. But not soggy and wet like traditional bread pudding. Nice sized scoop (not too big, not too small) of vanilla ice cream on top. Our waitress was professional and attentive. I am probably sounding like the Goldilocks reviewer (everything was just right), but so often our dining experience is way too sweet or way too salty or way too heavy. Sadly it is hard to find that is prepared to accent the dish and not cover it up.

Customshop never disappoints. The menu is seafood-heavy, but there are still plenty of terrific options for those of us who don't eat seafood.
We shared the chorizo small plate. Amazing.
The ricotta gnocchi are the most incredibly delicious pillows of delight.
Bread pudding is always so good!

Please hire some more help on a busy night. The low service score isn't for our hardworking waitress -- it's that there's only so much each person can do. Although they did forget a drink.

The food was just ok. Fish was overcooked. Duck had a vein of tough fiber. Tuna Tartar dish was microscopic.

My wife & I have liked Customshop since the first time we dined there. We brought some friends for their first and they loved it. We certainly weren't disappointed either. Our waiter Scott was very casual and laid back but extremely knowledgeable. The food was fantastic, the service spot on, and experience very worthwhile.

I went to the restaurant because the pictures looked promising, I ordered this I ordered that, service was excellent, music was divine, I thought for a moment I was being transported then... the chocolate souffle arrived and wiped out every other memory... one word, divine. go there, enjoy a Charlotte that's reaching out to the world of different palates.

It has become our tradition to end every date at Customshop for cocktails and dessert. The bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly, and the brownie souffle is not to be missed. The dinner menu is fantastic too. Customshop is definitely on our short list.

My husband and I live in VA.. I planned a trip to Charlotte for Fathers Day weekend. Only went by Google, reviews and a glance at the menu. Wow. Just awesome. We enjoyed everything from the atmosphere to our waiter, the bread is so so good, wine was awesome.. And the food was so delicious and fresh. Definitely would recommend and return when I'm town!
