    This is a tapas style restaurant where you order multiple small plates. Everything we got was amazing, but the gnocchi and the pork belly were both out of this world. Great and friendly service. Our server was able to answer a question about wine for my wife. I had one of their signature cocktails and it was outstanding. The noise level in the downstairs is fairly high, but not so high that you can’t hold a conversation.

    The dishes we selected were very good. The pork belly was a bit overdone, but the lamb pops and deviled eggs outstanding.

    Everything we had; Mushroom Salad, Tuna, Scallops and Calamari, was very good plus. Great flavors, textures and balance. Perfect choice for dinner before the Symphony. Server was a bit harried but handled the situation with aplomb. A bit tight, call ahead for a corner table if you need a little privacy.

    I went to Dandelion Market after hearing great things about it from friends and it did not disappoint! The lamb, mac and cheese, and broccolini were all delicious. I personally felt the deviled eggs could've used a little extra flavor or texture and something to top it off for presentation. I believe our server's name was Emily and she was excellent! The manager, Greg, was also very accommodating and warm. I'll definitely be returning and when I do, I plan on trying the pork belly and green beans!

    Fun menu for small eats The sweet potato gnocchi was so good, as was the mac and cheese, and the calamari. The lamb chops were a bit on the raw side - but well seasoned. Too bad they were out of scallops.

    Second time here….first time for brunch. My husband ordered shrimp and grits which he said were very good but the dish was not hot….waitress took away to re-heat and my husband enjoyed. I ordered a side of grits which took forever to arrive and when they did they were cold. Waitress told me the kitchen was having issues with the grits and would I like to order a different side….I did….hash browns which also arrived cold. To the restaurant’s credit, the shrimp and grits and my side were taken care of but we were disappointed.

    Dandelion Market is a solid tapas choice in downtown Charlotte. We hadn't been in awhile and were grateful it was still open and still serving up delightful small plates. I recommend asking for a beer flight if you enjoy trying the latest seasonals on tap. Food was very good, service was very good. Our welcome at the front door could have been better and more, well welcoming and friendly. We will be back.

    First time going to Dandelion Market and we will be back. Ordered five different dishes to share and all were amazing. Didnt leave a crumb behind. I also had 2 moscow mules and the bill was still under $100.00. Great value! I highly recommend the Prosciutto Crostinis!

    The food was imaginative and exceptional. Great service and great drinks! It is like a neighborhood hangout with better food. Not a romantic atmosphere, but friendly and fun. Everything was delicious, but the beet salad short ribs and maple crème brûlée were amazing. Next time we come to Charlotte, we will be back!!!

    We have dined at Dandelion Market many times and am NEVER disappointed. The food is fabulous, the service is so fast and friendly and overall, it's just a fun way to eat and a fun place to be. We have, infact, hosted two big parties upstairs where we ordered the entire menu - everyone loved it.

    The small plates were a perfect dinner prior to seeing a show at the Blumenthal. We especially enjoyed the lamb lollipops, short ribs, mushroom salad and scallops. The Ahi tuna was a little overdone but everything else was sensational.
