    Mixed reviews, because I had heard such amazing things about this place, the views were spectacular, the food was great, and I really enjoyed my first server - he was lovely! As I was finishing up my meal, though, a new server replaced him and asked if I needed my sandwich boxed up. Yes, please, thank you, how nice! However.. after she grabbed my plate, she proceeded to check on a man at a nearby table, asked if he was all done with his food, and then I witnessed her stack his plate on the same arm as mine! His plate was literally dripping down into my plate. Unfortunately, I am appalled, disappointed and disgusted and will not be able to enjoy the second half of the grilled cheese I bought. Isn’t there a segment about cross contamination when you take your food worker card test? It is extremely unsanitary, especially for a nice restaurant like this and with covid still lurking around.

    We’ve been many times, and both food and service are consistently great. We happened to be in celebrating my husband’s 55th birthday. Both the hostess and waiter noted that - it’s that sort of attention to detail that makes a difference. We will definitely return!

    Did the prixe fix menu, the dining room is gorgeous with amazing views. Service was very attentive. I believe the waiter was French (didn’t quite catch his name) was very friendly, and allowed for accommodation for a food allergy. Really raised the experience. Food while generally good was mixed. Some dishes I loved others I was mixed about. I’d come back though, especially as it looks like the menu changes.

    The food was mediocre for a upscale restaurant. The window seat view of the city was beautiful. The setting was romantic and there were two gentlemen playing jazz throughout the night. I would give it 5 stars if the food was better but they have great drinks.

    We had an excellent brunch at Charlotte. The only disconcerting things were that the coffee was not piping hot and also two of us had ordered crab toast and were surprised that it was served cold. Even the soft cooked eggs on top were cold. In spite of being cold it was still delicious. We loved the ambiance as we had a table right next to the window with a grand view of the Seattle waterfront and to the south to the Smith tower and the sports arenas. Our waitperson was attentive and efficient . One last thing, the bill includes a 20 percent service charge so keep that in mind when considering a tip. And finally we split the bill between two cards. One card was charged 1/2 but the other was going to charge for the full amount. We pointed this out to our waitperson who was very embarrassed by the error and corrected in immediately .

    Lovely view. Decor is a bit cold and cafeteria like for my taste. Uncomfortable chairs. Cool bar. Lots of groups in the bar so service was so slow ( 25 minutes to get a drink). My Seabass was excellent, Kale and Broccolini salad was unimaginative and bland. Red Velvet cake was a great surprise. Sold out of the short rib which sounded good. Service was slow. Took over an hour for food to come out. So overall I was pleasantly happy with the food but not the ambience or service. Many will love it. Some will find it pretty good. Unsure if I would go again

    Went to Charlotte Lounge for birthday brunch and we had a great experience! The views of the Sound are beautiful. Great and prompt service. They were also super kid friendly and had one of the best services for kids— excellent high chair and kid friendly plates and utensils and a kid’s menu! We will be returning!

    It was my first time in Seattle but coming was confusing and exciting. It is located on the 16th floor of a building. As you enter you are greeted with smooth jazz and an ambience. We ordered oyster which was phenomenal and an octopus which was appetizing. Long story short, I definitely will make reservations again the next time I spend a weekend in Seattle.

Not only was he personable and friendly, he went above and beyond by writing up a list of nearby spots to try and also brought us complimentary champagne to help celebrate my birthday. Thank you Devin for a wonderful meal and experience - we will be back!

    The atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for our 6 year anniversary. Our server was incredible and took the time to get to know us and our names. The service and flexibility they had with the 4 course meal was much appreciated. The effort the establishment put in to make our anniversary was special was apparent. The only draw back had to be the food it’s self. The presentation was beautiful but flavor profile was not to our liking. The main issue was with how tough our medium rare dry aged steak was. We were left chewing for awhile, even our knives struggled to cut the steak. This could have been due to dull knives though. Over all, the the experience was great, but the food was not to our liking. We had a lovely time. That you Charlotte Restaurant and Lounge :)

    I couldn’t have found a better place to celebrate my engagement dinner. Staff was amazing with their service and attentiveness to not just us but all guests for a Saturday night dine in. I still can’t get over how experimental the food was and how it made my tastebuds explode. Everything was made to perfection!
