We had great service and the food was delicious! The ambience was very cozy and elegant.
Food was excellent from start to finish. Fried Lobster, She Crab soup and Beet salad were great starters. Filet for me and scallops for my wife were awesome. Soufflé for dessert was great. Our waiter Jeff was very attentive and helpful we really enjoyed him
Scotch egg and charcuterie were amazing as was my short rib in a Cabernet reduction. My daughter ordered a medium well done steak. It first came out medium rare. They graciously took it back and brought it out again in 5 minutes. The outside was done but not the inside. Since I had my food, I had shared with my daughter and we were both happy. They removed the steak from the bill without us asking. I believe that if we order another medium well done steak here we will order it butterflied.
This was our first time at Bonterra and it will not be the last. Our waiter, Dave, was very attentive and made great recommendations! The owner, JD, even came over and thanked us for coming in. I had the lobster tail and even though it was slightly over cooked it was still very tasty. Bonterra has a very extensive wine selection and the menu items come from local farms. The menu offers salmon, filet migno and a pork entree along with several other dishes. The appetizer menu offers Octopus, wagyu beef and a very tasty she crab soup.
Bonterra is a reliable spot for a great meal. The service was excellent and the food expertly prepared. We will definitely return.
My family dined at Bonterra for my mom's birthday. The building is beautifully done. Our food was amazing! The charcuterie is locally sourced and fabulous, the house made pickles and pate were a hit with the whole table.
Our entrees came in a timely manner, the filet, short rib, lobster tail, and scallops were perfectly cooked and beautifully presented.
The house made breads and scratch made desserts were worth every delicious calorie!
Our server, Josh, went above and beyond giving our party impeccable service. He was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable.
We will return in the very near future.
All of the food tasted weird. I didn’t like any of it.
My wife and I went for valentine's night. This was our first time at this restaurant and really looked forward to it. Since it was a special event night they did not have the regular menu but the food and service was good considering how packed they were. They have a great wine list and nice looking menu. We plan to go back and try them on a regular night.
Bonterra did not meet our expectations. Reviews I've read were glowing; the chef is touted as one of the best in Charlotte. However, the food had no flavor, was served lukewarm, and in some cases, not prepared well. Their signature dish, fried lobster, was over-pankoed and tough.
Very nice and our server David was outstanding. We are vegan and we hoping for more options but overall we had a nice evening and felt very welcome.
Fantastic as always! The food was cooked to perfection, service was outstanding and they have a great atmosphere! We took some friends from out of town there for dinner and they were very impressed with Bonterra’s.
As we were pressed for time, we just grabbed a table in the bar area and had some appetizers and fabulous wine. Their wine list did not disappoint, nor did the grilled octopus. It’s quickly turning into our pre-concert dinner spot thanks to their wine selection and the convenient location to downtown Charlotte.
Bomterra is the perfect spot to impress your date. It is a great spot for conversation as the servers do not rush you at all. All the servers are able to make great recommendations and the food and ambiance are wonderful.
Good wine list. All three main courses we ordered were well prepared and delivered hot
The end of Charlotte Restaurant Week! NY Strip, Duck 2 Ways, Chocolate Ganache Cake, and Cheesecake. The restaurant was lovely, a converted church! Great service overall and amazing wine selection.
As always a great, no outstanding meal and wine pairing. Not sure what was with the LED light replacement in the chandelier however LED lights are far from a cozy and warm atmosphere. It did indeed detract a bit from the meal, I understand that there is cost savings as well as a longevity benefit from these lights however very distracting. The only complaint I can think of. Food, wine and company was awesome as usual! We will be back!!
Wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. Even though it was restaurant week there was no noticeable difference in service or food.
Dinner with friends at Bonterra was very enjoyable. Our server, David, was attentive and helpful with the wine selection. All of our courses were brought to our table with care and timeliness. The food was served hot and was flavorful, although the shrimp, scallops, and rice dish I ordered had too much butter for my taste. As the restaurant became busier (we had a fairly early reservation) the noise level did not increase substantially or cause a distraction. The ambience, being in a former church, was quite interesting. Indeed, a delightful evening at a restaurant I would recommend.
The food was really really really good. Tony was a OUTSTANDING server. Great wine selection. Food was impressive.
