Great service. Loved our choices. Squash soup spicy delicious. Scallops perfectly prepared. Bourbon and coffee ice creams to die for.
Very attentive service. Everyone loved the food.
The food was just okay. I felt it was over priced for the quality and selections. The service was fabulous and nice views of the city.
It was my birthday celebration
Great! The food and service was wonderful!
Excellent food and drinks, friendly staff. Was a Little loud for conversation.
Food was good service was very poor. Had to wait 30 minutes after our reservation, took a very long time to get drinks, server rarely checked in on us, brought desert out to our table and put it down that was meant for another table and took it back
Food didn’t meet expectations. Depth of flavor was lacking.
Very good experience, food was delicious, excellent service and wonderful atmosphere. Would definitely go back.
The restaurant is beautiful. The food was wonderful. But the service was the real standout here. Mary took care of us and there just aren’t enough words to describe how well she took care of my husband and myself. There is nothing better than really really good food and absolutely perfect service. Kudos to Halycon and Mary for making ours an exceptional dining experience, by far the best we’ve had in Charlotte in years. Oh and try the Apple Buckle......it’s AMAZING!
It's a great restaurant with a friendly staff. I would be back to this restaurant when I'm back intown.
We were lucky to be there mid-week on a snowy day thus very quiet. Service was good, the waiter helpful when I needed to cut out port from my choice and the resulting dish, with added veg was delicious. It's a pretty space in the same building as the gorgeous MINT craft museum and has that design esthetic. Good beer, rather pricey wine by the glass. My only suggestion for those of us who must avoid pork is to not on the menu that it can be replaced.
Exceeded my expectations! Easily the best meal I've had in the past 6 months. Delicious!
Imaginative menu, excellent, friendly service. Beautiful restaurant and views of downtown. A bit pricey, but excellent for a special occasion. Just across the street from Knight Theater where the Charlotte Symphony performs. Event parking in the building.
Food was great! Wish they had a better beer selection but all the food was really tasty
My husband and I went out for an after Valentine’s Day dinner. We sat at the bar before and watched the food coming out of the kitchen...I love seeing what it looks like before I order!
We enjoyed everything we ordered. The shrimp toast, the short rib, and the scallops were all delicious.
The goat cheese cheesecake was amazing and was the highlight of my meal!
Short rib was so delicious & tender. Great desserts! Wonderful service by an attentive waitress! Halcyon did not disappoint.
Very pleasant, professional and knowledgeable server. Loved all the dishes but especially the fried oysters, cheese plate, and butternut squash soup.
Pineapples/basil sorbet was also as delicious as it is creative.
All very reasonably priced.
We booked last second while coming back from Florida by car to make a local show. Not only did they happily accommodate our very tight schedule, the service when there to make things move quickly but still maintain the right atmosphere was amazing, and appreciated. Food, drinks and service were all excellent and we will back to experience Halcyon at a more leisurely pace in the near future. Can't say enough about the staff, really made our night!
Allison was excellent server. Surprised there was a new menu but it didn’t disappoint.
The food and service was fantastic!
One of my favorite spots in Uptown Charlotte! Great artsy atmosphere with a healthy and creative menu!
What a fantastic birthday dinner! Fabulous service, beautiful atmosphere and usually fantastic food!!
One of the best combination of flavors were had in Charlotte. Everything came out perfect temperature and term. Simple, but good.
Sea bass,scallops, and lamb all excellent. Interesting cocktails and great service
2nd visit. Dinner. NC Sea Bass was really mediocre. And, plating just didn’t go well together. Temps off, flavors not melding, fish blah. Disappointing.
I enjoyed the food and atmosphere better during restaurant week.
Still my favorite burger in town and the most tender braised beef short rib.
Excellent. Thank you
The food was delicious but I wish th pork belly and blue cheese souffle would be brought back as menu items.
This experience was like none other, our food was excellent and our service was even better! I can't recall our servers name, however, she should teach a class on customer service. You may forget what someone says to you, however, you remember how they made you feel:) (Server was a beautiful, young, African American lady with a short/shaved hair cut)
Food was excellent, cocktails were interesting and tasty, and the service was great!
Food was delicious and our server, Mary, was the best I have had ANYWHERE!
Had a reservation at 7:45 but weren’t seated until a bit after 8:15. After we sat down it was lovely, but disappointing to wait for so long.
I dined at Halcyone for restaurant week and it was outstanding. Each course was unique and tasteful. Service was friendly and efficient. The ambiance of the restaurant was very pleasant.
We attended dinner for January restaurant week 2020. Overall great food and energetic/helpful waitress. Starter and desert options were on the smaller side, with main entree a great size. Did have to wait 20-30 minutes past reservation time.
The food was great and service was impeccable. Our only issue is that, although the kitchen touts that everything is fresh and made from scratch, my wife’s garlic allergy limited her menu choices. The alternatives made available were, in fact, quite nice!
First time...high quality experience...decadent food...will definitely be back!
Friendly and attentive service. Great location for Knight Theater events. I had the kale salad, trout and bread pudding for their restaurant week special.....all were excellent.
