The Nashville chicken was very dry and bland.
The tenderloin beef was cooked very nice but very salty.
Overall the food was fair

Second time visiting and brought an out of town friend for brunch. It was just as great as last time. The chicken and waffles were just as good as last time, Grits were some of the best I’ve had in Charlotte and the mimosas are made perfectly! They even gave my boyfriend and our friend military discounts even though they don’t normally offer it. Great service, we will be back.

difficult to find during rush hour...parking, while close, also difficult due to construction....personnel very accommodating, found us a table away from speakers so we could have conversation....food very well prepared and tasty....a nice place to try for Restaurant Week....the bill came, I paid, and realized the next day that they did not adhere to Restaurant Week pricing, resulting in what I feel an overcharge....my fault for not catching it sooner, but not a good feeling...hence, I hesitate to give a top rating....additionally, tried to use some gift cards for 204 North I had been saving, but was told they had no value....apparently they expire, unlike other establishments

Average to disappointing meal. The deviled eggs were very bland. The meatloaf had a spicy taste and was more loaf than meat. The specialty cocktails were a hit though.

We enjoy having brunch/lunch at 204 North before shows at Belk theater. Good food and much better service has resulted in a better experience. Thanks to the staff.

It was our first time here & we were celebrating my husbands birthday. We had an excellent experience! The fried green tomatoes were some of the best things we have ever had! The Nashville hot chicken was spicy and excellent and the Mac and cheese was perfect! Burger was great too! All around it was such an awesome meal and experience! Can’t wait to go back!

Our waiter was great, but the hostess was quite poor. She wasn’t very friendly and made a negative first impression. There were some seating issues and we waited for a table even though we had a reservation.

The waiter did an outstanding job and created a nice experience. The ambience was not what I expected but is ok. However, the noise made things very loud. A bit more casual than the way the restaurant was depicted on the website.

We decided to try 204 North Kitchen and Cocktails as it is just across from the Blumenthal Theatre and we had a matinee show that day. Our hostess took us to our table and was pleasant. The server was prompt and provided us with water and took our drink orders. We tried the Peach/Mango mimosas and they were awesome. I found a beet salad on the menu and added shrimp to the order. Very very good and I would order it again. Feta cheese, walnuts, arugula, beets, blueberries, and a great dressing. My wife ordered the chicken and waffles with a side of bacon. While the waffles were fine, the chicken was not done to her liking. Perhaps the batter or the level of cooking were off. We’d try something else next time. We found the ambiance to be appealing and the service was very good. We will come back.

As a frequent Charlotte diner, I was very unimpressed and disappointed with 204 North. The cocktails were good except for the “Call me Maybe” which was extremely spicy even to the spicy enthusiasts.

The calamari was standard however includes fries peppers which was the majority of the app, not the calamari.

The scallops were okay but only included two small scallops for $13. There should of been at least 3 scallops for that price or bigger scallops.

The salmon came out basically raw and I couldn’t even eat it all.

The broccolini is a waste of your time. It’s literally heated up in the microwave and isn’t seared or crispy.

Probably won’t go back

Went fo lunch and server seemed to have a lot of tables. Had the flag down for drink refill. Food was good and came out quickly. Maybe be just the day we were there but it was hard to hear across the table.

The atmosphere is comfortable, and the decor is uniquely Charlotte. I've never had a bad cocktail here, but I tend to lean towards the "Banker" or "Dilworth" as my personal favorites. Food was excellent, but it usually is. The fried green tomatoes are delicious for starters, but for an entree, the Nashville Hot Chicken and the Meatloaf are the best! Be sure to try the Brussels Sprouts and Mac and Cheese for your sides.

Service was slow despite the restaurant not appearing very busy. Our waiter seemed distracted and aloof. The food was mediocre, but for the price it was a decent value.

The food and server were excellent, but the wait time was a bit much. It took our food almost 45 minutes to get to us. The cocktails were delicious. Overall would recommend, but you might want to mention if you are crunched for time.

It's probably not optimal to have your first experience of a restaurant occur at the same time as Taste of Charlotte and massive rainstorms. We were delighted we'd made a reservation at 204 North because the hostess, MJ, had to turn away a lot of people because the restaurant was completely full. She also stepped in to handle serving duties at our table because we didn't even see our designated server for for a good 20 minutes and he never did introduce himself. MJ is a real credit to the team at 204! Now, for the food. It was terrific. We had apps and salads for dinner. Apps were the Seared Scallops and Calamari. Salads were the Fig and the Beet. The scallops were perfectly seared and served with peas and roasted cauliflower. The calamari was crisp, hot and there were some fried jalapenos in the mix that added an interesting kick. The salads were both excellent. The were both constructed so that each bite had a combination of flavors but none of the ingredients overpowered. They were also pretty healthy; thing like cheese were accents. We will go back again. There are a bunch of other menu items we'd like to try - just maybe on a quieter day.

204 North Kitchen is a quaint and cool establishment. A few girlfriends and I came here for dinner after a comedy show. The lighting was perfect and the right amount of busyness considering its location and time of evening. I really like the rustic look/feel, as well. One person had the wedge salad, another the shrimp and grits and I had the Nashville hot chicken. Everyone’s dishes were great and bellies full. My only gripe was that at 9:00 in the evening, they had run out of one of the major side dishes. I am unsure what time the kitchen closes (this was our first time there), but that seems rather early to run out of macaroni and cheese; especially when it is the standard side for some of the dishes. I will come back again though because everything was just that good, including the atmosphere.

We were a group of 5 attending the Blumey Awards. While I have had many delicious and delightful meals here, this was NOT a great experience. The restaurant seemed understaffed. Despite the fact we were seated right away we waited over 20 minutes for cocktails. The menus had apparently been changed, but we were given the old menus. As we went to order, almost every one of us ordered something no longer available...I also paid $2 more for a cocktail than indicated on the menu. The waiter was extremely nice,but we felt badly that he was in this awkward position. We each ordered the 3 course meal/menu. We waited so long for our dinner that he sent all 5 of us to the theater with our desserts to go! We had a 5:30 reservation which is usually perfect for a 7pm showtime. Just a really “off” experience this time around. A little disappointed as I made this recommendation to our group.

This place was off the chain! Great vibe with the music and food was DELICIOUS (ordered the French toast for Brunch). Even though my group and I went on Saturday at about 3 pm it was not too busy nor packed (we had just beat the rush thank goodness!)

Upstairs and downstairs seating options. We sat downstairs since there was space but I'm sure the 2nd level is just as amazing. Highly recommend for brunch! Can get a smidgen pricey about $20-$30 pp. But totally worth it done every once in a while! Will DEF be back again!

The food was not prepared well. My potatoes and carrots were not cooked enough and my steak was a little tough. The cocktails were great and they had a good wine selection. It was fun being up town. The brussel sprouts were good. Cheese tray a little lacking.

Food was excellent. We will definitely eat hear again. The only minor complaint I have is the service was somewhat slow. It was very busy on Mother's Day so I can't fully fault them for that. The servers were working hard, it just seemed liked they needed more staff.

Went for brunch. Food was good not great. Mimosas were skimpy. Our server seemed as though he may have had too many cocktails the night before, but he was nice. Like the decor and vibe of the restaurant.
