Food and Service was outstanding. Don’t go here for a quick meal but food was fantastic and table service was spot on.
It was a nice dinner.
great place for a special night
Delicious food, stellar service, lovely ambiance, and a complimentary glass of bubbly to celebrate our special occasion! As usual, our dinner at Bonterra was outstanding. We ate the fried lobster bites, magnolia salad, filet, pork, and glazed donuts - thoroughly enjoyed it all.
Great experience overall!
The food and atmosphere was lovely. My waiter was fantastic.
Excellent service. The menu items were diverse. The three we tried (Charcuterie, fish, duck) were all good.
The food was absolutely incredible and worth every penny. The wait staff was very professional and eager to help. The only negative was the wait time between courses. The experience is worth it, but you definitely want to plan for a couple hours for a meal here!
Despite making reservatoins on the restaurant week site, we were told on arrival that they were NOT participating in that event. It was much too late to make reservations elsewhere. My fish was perfect; wife'sduck was not cooked as she asked. Servive was excellent. Very,very noisy.
This is a restaurant that seems to want to be grand pseudo fine dining. The wine list has an excellent and extensive selection of wines by the glass which we appreciated. The menu was above average but execution was average. The coq au vin had a brown sauce (instead of a red sauce mainly wine) as we would have expected. My pork was very good but the ahi salad did not match the menu description. Portions were too large and lacked playing finesse. The mussels did not have a cohesive plan but the heirloom tomatoes were great. The table next to us had two mistakes of the four plates they ordered, we had one error out of four. Service was amateur and flippant, interrupting our conversation and too “I’m your friend” style. While not a bad meal, it did not fit decor, price, or expectation. At half the price and half the pompe, I’d be happy.
One salad delivered 10-15 minutes after the others. Also one piece of fish was either bad or not cooked properly as it was tough and not flaky. Inedible.
Bonterra was great! What a fabulous variety of wines by the glass from which to choose! The duck was delicious as was everything else.
Great steak and halibut. The wait staffer was prompt, gracious and with a welcoming personality. Look forward to returning soon.
this is restaurant brings it all to together flawlessly. from the moment you arrive to the moment you check out the staffs attention to detail is top tier. There was not one item on the starter menu that i would say i wouldn't eat again. i ordered them all, each one was a culinary experience all their own. the entrees were presented amazingly and served hot to the entire table not one person in my party had to wait for their plate while others ate. Nobody needed to ask for a refill on drinks, they were full constantly.
dessert was over the top great!! all around i couldn't have asked for a better atmosphere then what was here at Bonterra. this restaurant is a hidden gem in Charlotte that if you haven't tried it yet you are seriously missing out on top tier dining experience. the chef and staff at this establishment take pride in what they do, and they do it well. i highly recommend trying Bonterra, there will be no disappointments here.
Always great food and great service
Enjoy our time there everytime. Food was delicious and staff was amazing.
Waiter was rude. One appetizer was not served until after all other appetizers were finished, and it was cold. Soup was Luke warm and flavorless. Main dishes were delicious.
Great service and excellent food. 3 days later you will still be thinking about how great this meal was. Bonterra will be a date night and celebration staple for me.
Great experience as always for our annual birthday celebration. We sat at the bar and enjoyed chatting with excellent bar tender even though it was a busy Friday night for her.
Limited bar menu a bit disappointing but food was tasty and drinks were recommended and did not disappoint. A special place!
The lobster bites for appetizer was fantastic. We enjoyed our server, she was excellent. Walking into the restaurant, it smelled like my childhood, like an old church, very nice and nostalgic.
This is quite a place to go for something different. It's located in an old church and they've done a great job fixing it up. Food was terrific. Service was outstanding. Great wine list a reasonable prices. Beautiful room. Nice bar. Overall, I'll be returning on my next trip to Charlotte.
Very disappointed in the food and service. We’ve been here several times and invited friends. Entrees took forever. Halibut had no flavor and steaks were subpar. Very disappointed and actually embarrassed we suggested to friends. Wine menu remains top notch bu that doesn’t not make up for the evening.
Food and service were excellent! Great selection of wines by the glass. Wonderful special occasion restaurant.
Bonterra is our favorite go-to for a wonderful meal and great ambiance.
Good food. Excellent wine list. Great service. Awesome space.
Great Steak! Filet. Scallop appetizer was excellent
It was a perfect dinner. The only thing that we would change is the music did not fit fine dining.
We were taking good friends out for their anniversary. Although we were not in a hurry service was slow. Our server stated that your steaks were what Bonterra is known for but I could of gotten a better steak at Longhorn. The pork dish that was order was over cooked, dried and sauce congealed. We advised our server and he brought a new piece of pork (which he said he cooked himself) but it was really to late as everyone else had finished.
As this was a anniversary dinner, especially in light of above, I was surprised that we were not even offered a complimentary desert or adjustment to our bill.
Bonterra’s is a high end restaurant but that is not what was delivered. I expected a great dinner and left very disappointed. Doubtful I will visit again.
This restaurant was fantastic. Be prepared for a costly dinner, but for my husband and I, these are the things we love. Beautiful surroundings, table cloths, imaginative food, extensive wine list, impeccable service. I'm not sure when we'll be to Charlotte again as it's a "really big" city. But if we do return, we will seek out Bonterra. It was a true delight.
Nice choice for a date night !! We really enjoyed the filet and the build your own charcuterie board.
Bonterra offers a farm to table dining experience, complemented by a stellar wine list. This has been a favorite of ours for 20 years! As always, well done to the staff and chef at Bonterra.
This was a delightful evening!
Way overpriced for portion size. Just too expensive for what you get.
We had an excellent time
Bonterra was amazing! The food and the service was impeccable!
Don’t think they are back to full force waitstaff
this was the third time we've dined at Bonterra in three months ... we were fortunate enough to have Josh as our waiter on the initial visit and have requested him in each subsequent visit ... he's extremely knowledgeable about both the food and the wine and was happy to convo with the chef about some changes we requested ... food is lovely - we particularly love the charcuterie as a starting point as well as the lobster bites ... steaks and scallops have been amazing as well ... we have requested seating on the patio all three times and it has been lovely / comfortable under the giant oaks lining the street and covering the patio area ... can't believe i didn't know about this place much sooner, but better late than never
I've heard this place used to be better. Most items were good but just a small tweak from very good/great---more time in the oven and more salt would have done the rolls a big favor. More fruit/sweetness in the cornmeal blackberry dessert also would have helped. For the price I expected a little better. The space seemed a bit tired too. We learned that they are closing in December.
Amazing food as always
Perfect evening for dinner. Everything was great - service & food
