Risotto was the best I’ve had in a long time. A friend said the bleu cheese dressing was the best she’d EVER had (and she’s an experienced traveler). Our server was excellent- great advice, timely service, attentive to (and anticipated) our needs. Quite a gem about which I’d been unaware. Going back soon when I have more time to enjoy the menu.

went to dinner with four people, two people got their mail and then 15 minutes later two others got their meal minus a side. We waited another 10 minutes for our side order. The manager said that’s just the way they do things. Very unacceptable. Spent over $100 for dinner and was very disappointed. Will not be going back

Went for pre-concert dinner. They were out of all seafood dishes-tuna tartar, crab cakes, salmon & cod. Lamb meatballs were tasty but rubbery.
Cocktails were tasty. Would’ve left but it was Saturday night so made the best of it. Our server was embarrassed but tried the best he could.

I expected a truely charming dining experience, CLT as a whole is genuinely a great place to eat. However, I was disappointed with the service at the restaurant. The servers were generally loud and boisterous and lacked common courtesy and manners. It made for an awkward dining experience.

The food is lack luster at best but the whiskey is phenomenal.

We never got our food just to be told that it was given to another table. They knew we were there to watch a show next door. We were there over an hour and didn't get any food until we told them we had to leave for the show. I was really disappointed because my cousin was in from out of town and non e of us had eaten anything and was really looking forward to the meal. We order numerous small plates even a charcuterie board but no food. It wasn't busy at all. The drinks were great but with all that just very disappointing.

Disappointed that they were out of crabcakes. We were told this AFTER we placed our order. Cheese board came with 2 slices of cheese, a mound of soft cheese and only 3 bite sized crusting. We asked for more and was charged $2. Not a good value at all.

The service was good, the food was good. Did not WOW me. My biggest issue was two things we ordered an appetizer at brunch it was the avocado toast and then ordered our entrées. The avocado toast came out with our entrées which we had to wait quite some time for and there was only a few tables. The avocado toast definitely was not worth the cost they put maybe a tablespoon of avocado on each one of the pieces of toast. Unlike many places I go to have avocado toast which piles it on. So because the appetizer came out with our meals we had to decide which one to eat and which one to let get cold.

It was a date night for me, my hubby, and another couple. Initially we had reservations at another restaurant uptown. Upon our arrival at the other restaurant, we encountered a couple who was leaving the establishment. My husband struck up a conversation with them and asked how was their experience, followed by asking their opinion on the food. Their response concluded with them saying that the restaurant is an “experience” with no great reviews on the food. That left us uneasy so after our dinner companions arrived we collectively decided we needed another dining option. I found 204 North Kitchen & Cocktails on Yelp and after a brief discussion, we decided to give it a try. Best decision as they did not disappoint! Everyone was more than happy with their food choices and the waitress(Tatum) was awesome! While everything was good (we sampled each other’s foods), the clear standouts for me were the roasted chicken with truffle sauce and the red potatoes with garlic and rosemary! We will definitely be back!

My husband decided to take me on a brunch date and this was an excellent choice. They have amazing craft cocktails that are A+. I can’t remember our servers name but she was super nice and attentive. Here is a picture of the Impresso Martini, they do not skimp on the alcohol and it was amazing!!

The service and food for our group was excellent. The waitress did a great job of going over some brunch options and when the food came out it was hot, fresh, and very tasty. The cocktail I ordered - the Amazing Grace, was on point. This was our first time at North Kitchen and it won’t be our last!

Food was terrible. Rubber hot chicken on a cheap store bought bun. The avocado toast was bread with the thinnest of thin layer of seemly store bought prepared spread. Subway would be better.

We got an omelette and the eggs weren’t even cooked. The portions were extremely small for the money spent. We will definitely not be going back there. If you are looking for a good spot for brunch, make sure this is the last place in your list.

We were seated in the bar area even though the place was empty and I made a "standard" reservation. We started with yummy cocktails, although wait staff seemed impatient, but attentive. The food was delicious. I might have given it a higher score except the "beet salad" was not as described. It was a nice green salad, but hardly any beets or citrus sections as listed on the menu. Great location for pre-show dinner and drinks.

Not impressed by the Lamb Meatballs served in a very ordinary tasting tomato sauce. The beet salad had more greens than other ingredients and it should have been served warm (my suggestion).

Three of us ordered the fish which was deep fried but raw inside. The fourth person in our party ordered the pork chop which was so tough she could hardly cut it. The food was disappointing.

I would not eat here again. Apparently they have just revamped their menu and our server was unfamiliar with how to explain it to us. We ordered pork chop and fried cod, along with one side each. The (giant) sides came out way ahead of the entree, and it was only as they were brought to the table that we were told the meal was “family style” and family-sized portions would be brought out as they were ready. If we had known that we would not have ordered two sides. Service was slow, so it was difficult not to fill up on sides while waiting for our entrees. When entrees came out, the pork chop was ok—not great and slightly over cooked. The cod, however, was awful. It had a fishy smell and a very chemical taste to it. My partner couldn’t eat it, sent it back, and then had to wait an incredibly long time to get her second entree. By the time it was brought out she was no longer hungry and didn’t eat much of it. It was better than the cod, though again not outstanding. They did end up comping both her entrees which was appreciated. The only redeeming factor was the cocktails, which were good.

First time here for dinner. Restaurant has a great vibe and was off to a promising start. However, major negative here was the way they handled the food outages on the menu. For instance, they were out of oysters (which was the feature on the deviled eggs). Okay, we get it, sometimes you run out. They still offered the deviled eggs (and I was interested in them), so I asked about the price, assuming they would not still be $13. WRONG! Apparently the new rule is: serve half the dish, but pay full price.

So on that alone, would never go back. If management was different, perhaps would be worth a second chance. Otherwise, better to stick to places like Link and Pen that have both good food and good service.
