I was unhappy with the service. Plus, my entree came with half the ingredients. When I made the waiter aware, instead of bringing me a new dish, he brought over the missing ingredient, which was the main part of the meal. No apology, no nothing.
I was only in Charlotte for the night and was majorly disappointed with Bonterra.

Wonderful meal and service! Chef Blake always does a outstanding job!
Return visit as we’ve been there 4 or 5 times. Fried Lobster tail was over cooked and shrimp and scallops were overcooked as well. Charcuterie was good. There were very few people dining that night. Server was nice. Disappointed in the meals
Not a busy night but still the service was sub par. My grouper was very overcooked. We were almost done with dinner before our second drink order was served.
Great food, great service, and an overall pleasant dining experience!
My husband and I are on a mission to make Friday night date night and try new locally owned restaurants. I went to the CurEat app and Bonterra was recommended by a number of Chefs, Restaurant Owner's, Foodies, etc. So, I chose Bonterra based on CurEat users. They were spot on! Michael and I started with the Brie as a starter and were in awe of how tasty, smooth and perfectly prepared for us. We had a stare down for last bite.
The entree's! Michael had Grouper and I had Filet Mignon. I know, a generalization but food reversal for who you would think would have the fish. There are not enough adjectives to describe the taste, the preparation, the quality... My filet I could cut with a fork. I'm ready to go back just writing this review. Michael and I shared bites and just shook our heads in agreement of the flavor, temperature and again quality of the food.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the professional wait staff. Josh (hope it's okay to mention his name) was helping us with choices. Of course he was knowledgeable, helped us make good wine choices and all around friendly as he smiled constantly.
An all around excellent visit from valet parking, greeting, chef, wait staff and restaurant ambiance. Thanks CurEat app for helping us out. We will visit Bonterra again soon.
Excellent food and service!
Great service and food! Would go again even if it’s not a special occasion.
We had a great experience at Bonterra!!!! Everyone was so friendly and we enjoyed excellent service, great quality and very tasty food!!!! Our server Joshua B was exceptional and is truly a great asset to the Bonterra team!!!! I do plan on enjoying the Bonterra experience again in the near future!!!!!
I loved our waiter, and service was excellent and wine! Expensive but a delightful date night.
Heather at the bar is great.
It was good. I think the salmon was a little over cooked and the desserts were quite sugary. But the gazpacho and vegetable terrine were delicious. It was lovely to be in a place where I could actually hear my husband and have a date night.
My wife and I went for restaurant week, and had a lovely time! Excellent food and service, and just a cool restaurant. Pretty pricey outside of restaurant week, but what a deal for 35 a person!
Food was good, but portions were small and I left still hungry.
It was during Queens Feast so great value. Great food, atmospheric, and service in a unique environment with some fine art to boot. What more could you ask for?
We love this restaurant! Steaks were delicious and great value for restaurant week. Never disappoints!
A wonderful experience at Bonterra. Beautiful ambience and great service from David! Highly recommend
This was my second experience at Bonterra and they have never disappointed me. The ambience is surreal and the service is outstanding. My salmon was perfection.
Delicious food, ambiance, and top notch service. What’s not to love about Bonterra?
This is a lovely dining experience if you like old school service, classic food and an elegant atmosphere. I really enjoyed it for it's casual formality in a renovated church. The service was top notch, the kind you don't get anymore - where they actually remove the dishes your finished with. (Sorry sarcastic). We were there for the Queens Feast and I had the mussels in a coconut broth and slurped up every last bit. My husband had the baked brie which he enjoyed and we ended up with lamb brochettes by mistake and they were not lamb lollipops as described on the menu, but tasty. They grill on a wood oven so my salmon was very smokey but I loved it and my husband's pork was cooked perfect. great wine list - PRICEY
From the moment we arrived the Valet parking & greeters, we felt warmth from smiles & kind words. Our hostess seated us and our waiter was very good. He brought us our drinks and freshly made bread. Our appetizers were superb. The fresh salad and Mussels were outstanding. The Filet Minion & Pork with peaches were splendid to eat. Our desserts of Creme Brûlée and Brownie with nuts and whipped cream were enjoyable.
Waiter great will be back!
The steak was amazing as were the PEI mussells. Pork was so so as was the brie
First time visit, definitely worth a second try! We came for restaurant week and started with mussels, warm brie, and lamb. We could have eaten 3 orders of mussels, it was our favorite part of the entire meal! Excellent way to start the meal.
We ordered the vegetarian tagine, salmon (they substituted snapper after running out), and steak. My snapper was a little overdone but the flavors with the fried green tomato and veggies were great. The sauce with the steak got high marks, too.
Ended with the smores brownie, flan, and creme brulee. I ordered a second creme brulee :)
Our server was awesome and we enjoyed our time at the restaurant
The food was delicious and I cannot wait to go back again!
As always, Bonterra offers excellent food at a fair price. Additionally, the wine list is extensive without being outrageously priced. The Service was outstanding ... especially significant as the restaurant was totally booked.
The Filet was loved by all along with the excellent Salmon. Definitely a go-to place for a nice dinner!
Bonterra is always a good experience! Quality food and excellent service!
We went during QueensFeast restaurant week. The food was delicious!! The service was fantastic. Our waiter was very attentive.
We came for Queens Feast so the value was great, though I gave them 4 stars for value because it’s normally more expensive. The food was well prepared in tasty combinations, the service was very attentive all of which made for a particularly lovely evening out.
Our recent dining experience was beyond delightful. The wait staff was very personable and attentive. Our food was outstanding. We have dined at Bonterra several times; therefore, our expectations for quality food and service were very high. Bonterra did not disappoint.
We dined with another couple during restaurant week. The food was very creative and delicious, and the wine and cocktails were equally good. Our server, David, was professional, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive to the appropriate degree. We will definitely recommend and return to Bonterra’s!
Dinner tonight was fantastic!! Between the wonderful service Audrey provided to the incredible food the kitchen put out we were amazed. The fried lobster is a MUST. We added it onto the order last minute so everyone could try it and WOW was it worth it! The orange flan is hands down the most delicious, light and bright dessert I have ever had. Kudos to the pastry chef and his team....this one is a huge winner. We cannot wait to come back! Thank you for a lovely and yummy evening Bonterra
Always delicious and dependable. Great place for restaurant week or any other day of the week.
We enjoyed a truly excellent meal at Bonterra at the beginning of restaurant week, a time when many restaurants struggle to keep up with food service. The service, timing and food were outstanding. We look forward to returning.
Bonterra bosts a unique setting being in an Old Church, however I do think they could do some minor updates to make the aesthetic a little more modern and appealing. Each course of food was delicious and their wine selection is unbeatable. Our server was professional but still had a sense of humor. The bar service however, was lacking. We were very obviously ignored - probably because our party looked younger and out of place at the restaurant. Other than that, we had an enjoyable dining experience in a pleasant atmosphere.
Great service and food!
Great food, bit hidden location, great atmosphere, great drinks, friendly and good service!
Entrees were excellent. Sides were above average. Desserts were superb. Service was wonderful. Waiter was attentive and informative. Food arrived hot and came out quickly. Building interior is beautiful. This was first visit but not our last.
Less than impressed! Not an enjoyable dinner at all.
Outdated and bland: with an extremly overcooked salmon, a simple salad which underwhelmed in taste and presentation for "Heirloom Tomatoes" and the lack of attention...
