Not worth the money. Why do these nice high end restaurants try to get so fancy with the food that no one wants to eat it? For example, I love Fish and seafood... they’re menu offers seafood entrees but then they pair them with “parsnips”, “turnips”, and a “lusty Monk miso” aioli? I know what aioli is, wth is a lusty Monk? Now I have to google before I order. Just pair it with normal starches & veggies that people would normally eat & put your own twist on those Chef. And the Fried Lobster that I thought would be awesome- was not awesome. Frying it actually kills the taste in my opinion. I tasted OIL. The Cheesecake was literally like eating a sponge not even enjoyable. Gross. And how do you run out of Espresso? Server was great, did his best. Champagne & fried cauliflower with Buffalo sauce was only plus. Won’t be going back. I ended up ordering the Hot Chicken Sandwich for an entree- which was just a Buffalo chicken sandwich with lettuce & tomato.. I skipped the Fries and ordered more cauliflower instead. That should tell you in a nutshell.
The atmosphere is very nice, large open spaces. The food was excellent.
Great food and wine. Best wine list in the city. Very good ambiance. Wonderful place for a special occasion meal.
What a wonderful restaurant. My friend and I had a fun night out. The food and service (Jeff) were outstanding! We felt completely safe during these pandemic times. It was a treat to able to go out for a meal and have such a lovely experience. Highly recommend Bonterra.
Ended up being a perfect choice. Great ambiance, excellent food.
I highly recommend the Sea Bass.
One word.....”Meh”. Nothing to write home about. Mediocre food. Not bad, just okay. The fact that they poured some kind of barbecue sauce over Filet mignon was disturbing. If it was intended to be a bordelaise sauce....it was not.
Service was decent and pleasant enough.
The wines by the glass list is extraordinary & the staff are awesome ! We were extremely impressed with the Chef . Food choices range from small plates to accompany wine to pre fix choices to entrees all with farm to table ingredients and expert preparation !
Great experience. Service was amazing and ambience was great!
Perfect evening out to celebrate hubby’s birthday. Everything was perfect.
Excellent service from the time we entered the building. The hostess was helpful and courteous, and Heather at the bar took great care of us at our high-top.
The service and wait staff was excellent and very friendly and attentive
Had one of the 3 course price fixed menus on a Friday night. Service was top notch. Food was all very good and I appreciate a vegetarian entre option on the special menu. Wine list by the glass was huge. Covid protocols all followed from what I could see.
Food quality was not worth price. Lobster bisque was being returned by several tables. Steak not cooked to order. Staff was fantastic.
We enjoyed our dinner very much and plan to return soon. The steak was cooked perfectly, the short ribs were outstanding, and the sides were all done very well. The service was accommodating without being intrusive. The only area we felt came up a little short was dessert. The blackberry cobbler was smaller than I expected; I will not reorder on our next trip.
Overall, we plan to eat here again in the next few weeks.
Outstanding meal and wonderful service! One of the best places in North Carolina!
Never disappoints. Service is great, food is amazing. Smaller portions but well worth it.
As evident in the ratings I've assigned to Bonterra, every aspect of our experience was, as usual, exceptional. I do, however, want to single out Jeff for exceptional service and the young man who was the backwaiter.
My husband, mother in law and I went to Bonterra for dinner and had a great time. We each had steaks that were good. I had a martini which was ‘ok’... not the best I’ve ever had but not terrible. We had the hot pimento cheese for an appetizer and it was good! The homemade rolls were delicious!
Josh is an exceptional server and all around great guy.
All these great reviews and honestly our whole table was underwhelmed. Service was very good and the ambiance was nice. We were shocked to see middle aged and seniors mobbed at the bar sitting and walking around talking close and hugging with no masks on whatsoever. Really, really close. No restaurant employee said a thing to them. Then there’s the food. My Caesar salad was the blandest thing I’ve ever had from a restaurant. No flavor at all. Also lettuce was lukewarm. I had surf and turf...the steak was tasty...but the fried lobster tail consisted of a very small lobster tail heavily, heavily coated with a thick tempura type coating. It was awful..plain awful. Nobody at table liked it. The asparagus was over embered and tasted awful. I’m hoping it was an off night.
Food was fantastic and well worth the price. I liked the wine we had but think there was a better option available. If you are looking for a reasonably priced experience this is it. We will be back.
It was my birthday and I’m new to North Carolina. I must say the food and service was a 10/10. I’ll definitely be coming back
We have a family tradition of having a nice dinner after going to see the Nutcracker. This was the first year that we’ve tried Bonterra for dinner after the show. It was amazing! One of our daughters has Celiac and the server was knowledgeable and very accommodating. The wine was amazing, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. We could not have asked for a better experience. I only wish we remembered our servers name so we could individually compliment him, as he certainly deserves it.
The service and food were terrific. Nicely paced.
Fabulous food and value
My experience at dinner was great. We loved the food and atmosphere. Being an old church and now a restaurant was a first for me and my partner which made for an enjoyable atmosphere. Service was great also.
After a recommendation from a friend, we were pleasantly surprised of the value. The meal and service made our night.
What a pleasurable experience!! Was great from the time we walked in until the time we left. Great service, great food, beautiful restaurant. Upscale yet casual and laid back.
Last. Knute decision to go out to dinner. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte and it did not disappoint. Everything was great with each course being delicious.
Portions on 3 for $35 deal were great and service was exceptional from all staff. It was my wife and I’s anniversary and we were surprised with complementary Prosecco to start and a surprise desert at the end. Must try spot!
Celebrated my husbands birthday. Our appetizer was The fried lobster bites. Yummmoooo! We both had the Azalea salad which is a cesear salad and it was really good. I had the scallops and my husband had the filet. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. You could cut the scallops and filet with a butter knife if you had to. Our waiter Josh was fabulous. He made sure we were taken care of and had everything we needed. Tonight was half price wines by the glass. I am not sure if that was just tonight or if it is offered every Wednesday. Since it was my husbands birthday, Bonterra offer him a free desert off the menu. It was his choice. He did the cheesecake which was fabulous. We will definitely be back. Food and service was fabulous!
Bonterra is excellent! I recently went for the first time. The service was awesome, the ambiance was beautiful, and the food was incredible. Every course was unique and delicious. It’s the best wine room I’ve been to! There are so many options and the staff is so knowledgeable on their wine menu. They were able to give us good recommendations, that we ended up loving! Everything was wonderful. I can’t wait to go back!
George was a great waiter. Fun, attentive, knowledgeable. Always ask for George!!
Went to try the $35-3 course dinner. Have had different appetizers here and the flatbreads before; all great. I had main of blackened swordfish and my companion had the short rib. Both were great; as were the appetizers and salads! Love this place. Great ambiance, food, and wine!!!
Great food, excellent service(Joel) and 1/2 priced wine. EXCELLENT AS ALWAYS!!
Food is very good. 3 for $35 deal is well worth it. Service was very good. The partying and noise level from the bar detracts from the dining experience substantially. Second time here and the bar noise was unacceptable. The wine is some of the highest prices i have ever seen in a restaurant. Even with half price glasses didn't bring it down to normal restaurant prices. I saw one particular bottle that I can buy for $15 in the grocery store and I know they only pay $5 a bottle for, and it was going for $72 a bottle. Normal prices on the glasses were the price of a full bottle in other establishments. I've no idea what they are thinking with their wine prices but I am not coming back here to drink wine anymore.
I ordered the venison and my husband ordered the surf and turf. Both were fantastic!
The waiter was courteous and attentive, and the atmosphere was quiet and elegant.
We had asked for a quiet table because we were enjoying the night with some older friends. Bonterra delivered on both a great meal and perfect table!
Receptionist did a poor job greeting and seating our adult party.
Wait staff was 5 Star, as was the food. Best halibut in Charlotte!
Overall a wonderful experience.
