This was our first time dining at Aix en Provence. As Franchophiles, we thought we had to give it a try, especially as it is has been around for the last three years. The food and service were very good. The puff pastry on the escargot was really excellent. The frites with the steak could have been crispier, but the chocolate soufflé met the mark. Would certainly eat here again.

We love this restaurant but were disappointed in the New Year's Eve menu. The food was good but the portions were way way too small, even understanding novela cuisine. We will certainly be back but I don't know if we'llI come for New Year's Eve again

French food was divine - octopus, escargots, foie gras, salmon, mussels, and bouillabaisse were exceptional. Soufflé was too chocolatey to enjoy the delicate taste. Wonderful wine. Service was mediocre.

This has become one of our favorite special occasion places in Charlotte! Really attentive service, unusual menu choices, simply and beautifully prepared escargots, extensive wine list - we always feel like we're stepping into a European family restaurant - this place is a special treat.

Excellent, knowledgeable service. Food is so fresh and flavorful. Can’t stop ordering the bouillabaisse, chock full of the freshest, perfectly cooked seafood. Great crusty French bread and butter always a wonderful addition. Servers very helpful with selecting French wine and translating French dishes. Need to come here more often!

Absolutely the best French and Mediterranean dining in the Carolinas! The service and menu are fabulous. When we asked about other choices not on the current menu our server consulted the chef and we were accommodated. That's service! A wonderful restaurant worth our drive from Chapin, SC. We're so glad we found this gem.

We went for lunch on a rainy December day. I had the fish special which was cod over chickpeas and olives Tagine style. The fish was cooked to perfection with a slightly crispy exterior and a moist, flaky interior. The presentation was lovely, delicious and creative. The portion was just right for lunch and I left feeling satisfied but not too full and that I had had a healthy meal. The service was attentive, professional and right there when we needed it. A superb lunch. They always do a great job with dinner, but this little gem delivers for lunch as well!

The latest autumn menu dishes do not disappoint. The Salmon Mid-Cuit was beautifully presented and the flavors were as amazing as it looked. Very nice contrast between the beets and the fresh salmon. My wife had the wonderful venison, which was amazingly tender. I had the roasted monkfish on a bed of chickpeas with baby octopus, which reminded me similar dishes from the Basque region in Spain.
No meal at Aix En Provence would be complete without the chocolate souffle, which is still my favorite dessert in Charlotte.
Thanks to Bryan and to the chef for yet another wonderful dining experience. We'll be back soon!

My favorite go to resto for all special occasions as well as a neighborhood gem. Don’t let the name fool you, AIX is a true Mediterranean restaurant with typical French fare like the Bouillabaisse but their grilled squid puts many Spanish restaurants to shame and the lobster spaghetti is the best anywhere. If you’re trying to impress your date with your wine choices, you can save a lot of money by just asking Bryan for his recommendation. You will be impressed by the quality and reasonable prices. Bravo to Patrick and Bryan for keeping it consistently good over the years.
