    Not a good place for vegetarians or vegans. NO vegetarian entree options. My vegetarian friend ate an appetizer of gnocchi for her entree; the gnocchi was undercooked. I had the halibut and it was cooked well. The bread that they raved about was average. My Rosemary Mule (rosemary, ginger beer & lime) was delicious. The server was not very attentive even though it wasn't very busy. The ambiance was nice and the view was relaxing. No desire to go there again.

    Outstanding service and food was above par for the price. Did the 3 course prix fixe and it came with 3 outstanding and generous amuse bouche courses. The atmosphere Is classy and modern with a great view. I’ve eaten at several michelin star restaurants and can say the flavor profile combinations were complex and challenging. Preparation was executed perfectly and although there were a couple small hiccups in service, nothing I’ll complain about fresh out of post Covid. Plus our server handled it graciously and warmly. Elegant, wonderful meal. One I will always remember.

    Good but not great. We’re ok with spending $450 for a couple including wine and tip, but at that level I expect great food, service, atmosphere and Charlotte was merely very good in all 3.

    Listen. Save your money and go some place else. Yes. The ambiance and the view is great. But for the food not worth 120 per person. There’s better food anywhere else where that will at least leave you full and cost way less.

    Sigh, I looked forward to this dining experience for a birthday for my significant other. The setting is beautiful and unique and hard to top in Seattle. The private dining rooms are chic and comfortable. However, the key to any fine dining experience is the food. The ingredients were fresh, high quality, and well presented, but on the first, second, third, and final bite, the feeling was...absent. There was no flavor or soul to the dishes. Peach gazpacho: fresh but lacking a distinctive peach flavor, there was barely a hint. Stone Oven Octopus: cooked well, but the most distinctive flavor was the sunflower seeds. Anderson Ranch Lamb: I've had more interesting pieces of Safeway porkchop prepared in my grandmother's kitchen (for free!) Lemon-Yazu Tart: tart level on a 1-10 scale, 2 :/ Was this a result of my particular path through the pre-Fixe menu or an indicator that the chefs need to reevaluate how they season their food? You decide, but I recommend enjoying the wine list, cocktails and views. Save your $150 a find another place for fine dining. I also tested negative for COVID, and my flavor receptors are fully functioning, evidenced by a variety of cocktails and deserts later that evening.

    You cannot beat the views. We were given a well-informed overview of the prix fixe, and ordered a specialty cocktail, which I think took so long to arrive, bc we were there at 5p, and the bartender may not have been saddled up yet. First course was like a prawn ceviche - and though I came with an appetite, the more like bay shrimp were still translucent and slimy in a warm vinegar - and just were not tasty. The main course of halibut came around 20 minutes later, which is just long enough to be annoying, if you’re still starving. When it came, there was a immediate coif of fishiness. It was rare, maybe 6 ounces and barely warm…smelled fishy. Neither of us (originally from Alaska) finished it, bc it just was…unseasoned, kind of slimy poached halibut. It was sitting in a stock with fiddlehead and half a mushroom. Again…meh. Now, though it took two hours and we woofed it down to go to the Candlelight concert, the lemon tart, wrapped in matcha with meringue sculpted into a rose with a vanilla cookie ring - with a steam under glass presentation was a delight. My friend’s raspberry soufflé was pink, eggy moosh…,but the bread and lemon tart almost made the $354 of cold fish worth it. Full circle. Our experience of Charlotte bummed me out. I had been looking forward to going for a while.

    Amazing experience and atmosphere. The food was delectable and presentation was impeccable. My server was quite amiable, but I believe I was served by a hostess and not a standard waiter/waitress. When I was served I did not consistently receive an explanation of the items as is typically found in such establishments, but I did not find this to be of much significance towards the overall experience. The view was breath-taking as noted in previous reviews.

    Roxanna was awesome and such a knowledgeable hostess. So glad we were seated in her area. Devin was just as fabulous. Everything was very good although it seems like you are under staffed. Breakfast took a long time to come out of the kitchen but that was ok because we were really enjoying the views of the water. Also it took about 20 minutes to get a to go box. We asked the manger, the busser, the other waiter but didnt get the box until Roxanna came back. She got it for us not long after we made the request of her. All in All. The Charlotte is no Ascend Restaurant (Bellevue ) but it was pretty good.

    After hearing about this place initially from a friend, I took my family to Charlotte for a special occasion. When arrived at the restaurant, the concierge greeted us and the server took us to a table with a stunning view. I reserved the 4-course prix-fixe dinner and each of my family chose the starter, midcourse, entree, and dessert from available options (four to five each). When food was served, the server described what it is and the ingredients on the plate, which helped me remember what I ordered. The taste of the food was excellent, and each menu from starter to dessert was harmonious with one another. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has not visited and try the top-tier restaurant experience from Charlotte.

    First and foremost, thanks to our server Hibo for giving us a warm and pleasant experience all night! Came here on a Friday around 5 and enjoyed a four course prix fixe dinner. The food was as spectacular as the view. The place wasn’t too packed and we were able to enjoy the beautiful atmosphere in peace. Highly recommend exploring around the private dining spaces if they’re free as they make for great photo ops.

    First time at this beautiful restaurant in the Lotte hotel. It has a lot to offer by way of views and ambience. Best waitress in the entire city. They are luck to have her and I am sorry I forgot her name but made our evening one to remember. Ask her to have you take you to the private room with stunning view for an after dinner drink. Thanks for such a fun night.
