    Superb! One of the best meals we’ve had anywhere. Duck and dumplings, wagyu beef, seared tuna, spare ribs, sides of Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes - all were absolutely wonderful. Specialty cocktails were excellent and were $15. Would go back to Dogwood in a heartbeat!!!

    To not be told that a quite important part of a menu item has been substituted (fingerling potatoes for gnocchi) is a mistake that shouldn’t have happened. I wouldn’t have ordered the dish had I known, and a friend wouldn’t have ordered a side of fingerling potatoes if she’d known! How is that not communicated from the kitchen to the server, and then passed on to the diner when multiple people order that dish? Very disappointing and honestly ruined the experience.

    Came here from north of Charlotte as a special treat for our wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed our meal, but it wasn't so great that I would make the trip (45 minutes) again. We started with the duck and dumplings, which was delicious.. The duck was flavorful and tender. Then we split the market salad which was delicious but looked to have been dressed hours before, so the arugula was limp and unattractive. I then had the pork chop which was quite good and tender, but almost completely raw at the bone. My husband had asked for the amberjack "special" but the kitchen ran out of amberjack and only had Cobia to offer in its place. He went with the whole snapper instead and I think it tasted fine but it wasn't split and so eating it was a mess, very unattractive. They did comp us a fabulous carrot cake for dessert, (probably the best carrot cake I've ever had). The service was attentive without being cloying. The restaurant was packed, with lots of large (8 people) groups but the noise level was workable. We had light over our table, but some of the tables are in total darkness and I saw people using the camera on their phones to read the menu, that doesn't do much for the ambiance.

    The pickles and friends appetizer was so good and unique. Highly recommend. Duck breast was cooked perfectly and squash au gratin was another unique and delicious dish. Service a little slow but very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely return.

    The new menu is simply outstanding. The trout was perfectly prepared and full of flavor. My wife had the beef small plate and said it was lean and tender with a great sauce that didn’t overpower. The Ceviche was the best I ever had . The second best is the Ritz Carlton Ley Biscayne. High praise. And the salads were farm fresh with a light and delicious dressing. We may return tonight!

    My boyfriend and I ordered the supper that feeds 2 and it was the exact amount of food we wanted for dinner and was made to perfection. The head chef is so sweet and came to our table multiple times to check on us. Cannot recommend this place enough and we will be back so soon for the duck dumplings!!

    Anniversary dinner was a great success. We ate outside which may have taken away from the (fancier) ambiance the inside would have allowed, but it was a gorgeous evening, great for people watching, and the rest of the patio crew was quiet and kept to themselves except when we shared our common love for the cold brew martini. I will be dreaming about this drink until next time. The food was delicious and the wait for the food was minimal, especially for a Friday night. Our waitress was prompt and kind and offered great recommendations. We cannot wait to go back.

    Our food and service were really good, however it was so dark in the restaurant, we couldn't see our menus or the food on our plates. I know my dish had scollops, but I have no idea what they were sitting on. It wasn't just out table either......we watched everyone in our area having to use their phones to be able to see the menu.

    When we arrived we decided to eat outside. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and quite helpful in describing the fare. The duck and dumplings are to die for, adding pickled mirepoix is genius. Shrimp toast was equally delicious, if alone I would have licked the plate. Shrimp and grits are perfect, the sausage was smoky with just the right amount of heat. Fish was amberjack, combination with jowl bacon is another slam dunk grand slam hat trick. Two minor complaints, we got lost trying to park-perhaps adding a small map to the website would be helpful? And in keeping with our other experiences in “the South” we find inside temperatures too cold. We spent an hour getting there, it was worth it!

    We tried about 8 dishes and everything was absolutely amazing! The salads are so fresh, the steak was the best steak I’ve ever had! Rib-eye to be exact. Oysters were awesome and Shrimp and Grits were good too. Not your traditional dish but I liked their spin on the Grits! Definitely will be back!

    We sat at the counter. I wouldn’t ordinarily opt for this, but since this was a last minute date, we ended up there…it was fantastic. Peyton was the chef working tirelessly in front of us. He was friendly & engaging…watching him cook definitely influenced our menu choices. Dinner was excellent as always—Dogwood does not disappoint!!! I think if someone was on a first date this would be such a great conversation starter & take some of the pressure off!

    Excellent food and amazing experience with the Chef's experience! Badin, one of the chefs, took such great care of us and taught us all about cooking. He was so smart and full of knowledge. And learning what all goes into the food---all of the homemade stocks, etc----NO wonder the food is so amazing!

    The server/bar tender Liz was excellent. She knew the menu and the various wines and drinks. My meal, duck confit and dumplings was excellent. However, my wife asked about several entrees and they were said to be spicy. Finally the pasta dish she chose was filled with peppers.All in all my meal was great and hers was just ok.

    I would not recommend coming here because the food didn’t have hardly any flavor. The ingredients tasted fresh just not flavorful. Once we added salt it made it taste better but nothing to return for. We had the pasta, chicken and macaroni and cheese. The chicken was dry and the macaroni and cheese was bland and gritty. The drink that is like a rum punch was the best thing there. This I would recommend.

    This was our first time at Dogwood. Loved it! We sat at the counter and it was fabulous. Our cocktails were outstanding! The wagyu beef was incredible. The scallops and hoppn John was fresh and succulent. I’m not a shrimp and grits fan, but I will be dreaming of Dogwood’s. The sauce was incredible. The sunburst trout was perfect. Crispy skin and flaky moist fish. Dessert was carrot cake. Yum. Our service was great, Tom was the best- attentive but never hovering. One of our best meals in Charlotte ever. Thank you!

    We had a tremendous time at Dogwood! Excellent cocktails and food. The pork chop was amazing. Only complaint was that the crab hushpuppies were bordering on burnt. Also, far too many menus for one table: Cocktails, wine, food, Food week. Minor compared to the quality delivered overall.
