    One of multiple experiences at Dogwood. Service and food have always been excellent, and exciting and changing options. Only "down" is the noise level, but does not significantly interfere with the total experience.

    On Tuesday, Jan. 24, we went to Dogwood Café with good friends and had a superb experience. The food was outstanding and the service matched. As we went during the Queen's Feast, some of us elected to sample the three-course special. I have to mention that the shrimp fritters, new to the menu, were a revelation. I was gobsmacked by how good they were. We are regulars at the restaurant and have never been disappointed. Shout-outs to Executive Chef Andy Williams, General Manager Michele Clappsaddle and our server Tom for a terrific evening! I must mention here that Michele is unfailingly service-oriented and always looking out on behalf of customers.

    This was my first time dining at this restaurant. The noise level was extremely loud with chatter in which you cannot hear the music playing or your guest talking g to you. I sat in a corner with very dim lighting which made it very hard to read the menu. The food was absolutely amazing and the ambience minus the extremely loud chatter was quaint.

    Wait staff was amazing. That’s the end of the positives. Horribly rude experience by manager and the food was disgusting. Lacked any seasoning on the shrimp and grits. The trout dip was all salt and then served with Saltine crackers flamed until burnt. Horrible food. Will never go back. But the waitstaff was very nice. Shame the management and food weren’t. Not a shred of “southern hospitality” from the female manager…shameful….

    First time here and will definitely be going back again. This place was amazing. The service was superb, the food was tasty and everything on the menu was appetizing and the ambiance was nice and relaxed. I could go on and on about Dogwood. They lived up to the high expectations I had for them. Absolute 10/10.

    It was my first time going to dogwood, my boyfriend surprised me for our anniversary. It was great! Loved walking in and seeing the beautiful wood accents. The food was spectacular! We ended up getting the chefs menu and it did not disappoint, everything was cooked perfectly! Another added bonus was that everything we ate was like something we’ve never had, although sometimes I am picky, all of the food was great, and I would highly recommend

    Very mediocre food- staff seemed overextended but made a good effort to keep up and worked hard. Chicken over cooked to the point of being inedible. Very very loud. Great wine list.

    My wife and I are a big fan of all of the rare roots restaurants, including Dogwood. We had the bacon jam as a starter, which was delicious. Any opportunity to try bacon in a different form is a must. Didn’t disappoint. We got the duck and dumplings (wife accidentally called it the dump and ducklings, which would have been a very different dish), which we’ve had before and loved it. Had a thanksgiving type aroma to it. So good!! We had the mushrooms as a side, which was so savory. I love mushrooms and these met/exceeded expectations. We split the flounder, and while we both enjoyed it, we did feel it was a bit spicy (my wife doesn’t like spice and I have a moderate tolerance for it). For dessert, we had the espresso chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream (had to order ice cream separate). Probably our favorite part of the meal. A must try. I usually get the cheesecake there for dessert as it’s the only cheesecake I like, but since we went o fin and fino the week before and had it there, we opted for something different. Glad we did!! Also, the service was great, as usual. I think her name was Matt. Hard to get good service these days, but Rare Roots seems to take care of their staff, so we’ve never had an issue. Can’t wait for the next visit!!

    We ordered the chef tasting and unfortunately I was disappointed. I did enjoy the drinks that they paired with each dish they were delicious. The food was good I just expected more than a charcuterie board, and a roll of collard green with duck in it as 2 of the 3 meals.I would have rather ordered off the menu.

    My husband and I had a nice early dinner here on a Tuesday. My pork chops were perfect and my husband enjoyed his NC trout. We shared a Mom’s carrot cake, which is always our favorite dessert at any of the Roots restaurants. Though we were surprised that the size of the slice of cake is sadly much smaller since COVID reopening. Tom, our server was friendly and attentive. All and all a wonderful evening out for dinner after shopping at Southpark mall.

    The food was prepared under cooked. We we charged twice for the reservation fee. Once on our bill and the amount was still take. Out of my account for the booking website. $14 lemon drops were great but over priced. Will never go back.

    The food and the service outstanding!!! One of the best meals I’ve had in Charlotte. The restaurant is beautiful but noisy which made hearing each other and our server challenging for our table of 6. The 5 specialty cocktails we tried were not on the same level as the food (very sweet). We will definitely go back for the food and excellent service but probably order a class of wine, bubbly or a vodka soda from the bar.

    Service and Oysters were great. However, the steak was not worth the price, asked for medium rare and both the ribeye and filet came out well done, sent back the filet and it took 20 minutes to get another that was still medium well. The vegetable sides left a lot to be desired, almost like they were boiled.

    Always a great culinary experience. We sat at the counter this time and what fun it was to watch the complex but well oiled process of food prep. We always start with the bacon jam and those special fries with ranch. This is accompanied by the fireside punch. Shrimp fritters are hands down the best ever. The duck Confit is fantastic especially when accompanied by the market salad. Have to finish with a piece of coconut cake TO GO because there is no more room after a very delicious and filling meal. It's great to honestly say "thanks the meal is wonderful" to the managers who always come by to check on the table.

    Wonderful dinner. Our waiter Tom went over the menu and made suggestions on his favorites. We started with wine & beer and shrimp fritters. Delicious! Our dinner choices were shrimp & grits and ribeye which was cooked to perfection. Tom was so nice and helpful with our choices. Checked on us at just the right moment for dessert

    The meat (pork) was very dry and the side too when it was recommended for being really juicy. The Dogwood Oysters were not interesting (could not taste the chorizo and shallots) The service was rude and interrupted us 3 times to get our order and to take away our (unfinished) plate. But the manager reacted and offered a dessert (the cheesecake was the only thing really good).

    Server was not very good, not responsive, seemed to be pushing us to surrender glasses, plates, felt rushed. She wasn’t engaging and continued to walk past our table without engaging or asking if we needed anything. The food was ok, pricey for quality, loud like a bar… disappointing given that I spent more than $300 for dinner and drinks, for two.
