One of our favorites in Charlotte. Fresh farm food from local farms. Bourbon selection, wine selection are very good and occasionally have some one off unique bourbons, Pappy comes to mind. Desserts! Awesome! Mommas Cheesecake is the best we’ve ever had, we stop in occasionally just for the cheesecake, and the French press coffee...great romantic dessert stop. Usually it’s pretty quiet, but of course if the restaurant is full the noise level is higher. Additionally, they have seating available looking over the kitchen; can be fun to watch, and the chef has in the past doled out little snacks he’s just made up for tasting and trying out new combinations. Overall, price is a bit high, but you pay for the farm fresh, local farms great food, good service, and a nice atmosphere. The freshness is what makes the eats soo soo tasty. Highly recommend!!

We had the BEST experience tonight. Adi was our server and we cannot speak more highly of him!! Not only did he recommend some of the most delicious items on the menu (including some yummy port wine that I had to have) but he had great table-side manner and ended the night with really great conversation. He didn’t even make us feel rushed when we were for sure the last table left in the restaurant. He made our fancy, baby free, night out such a wonderful experience. All of the other servers we had conversation with were also very friendly - all of them we’re very concerned with us having a great time. We will definitely be back!

Server was terrific, but shouldn't reach across table; grody un-kept/unshaven look was distracting from otherwise attentive & fine service. Evening was enjoyed greatly and we look forward to a return visit.
Thank you & zmerry Christmas

We have been patrons of Dogwood's Southern Table for more than 5 Years. We have had events hosted a this location, in addition to having events catered. Sadly, the service, quality and overall experience has declined over the past year. While the farm to table menu is great, the seemingly transactional service and lack of attention to details, erodes the value for the money!

I am glad our party went to this restaurant. The food was excellent and loved the ambiance. The noise level was perfect where you didn't have to shout, but it was still energetic and fun. I would definitely go back again.

Definitely a must visit. Wonderful night great service. The food was outstanding. We all agree the hush puppy appetizers are to die for. Two of us had the boar and scallops, and the others had the steak, the special pork, and one the fish special. You will not be disappointed.

At Dogwood: Southern Table the food and service is outstanding. Adi, our waiter, suggestions were right on and he help make the meal. I will always request a table in his area. Dogwood is our special place, when my wife and I just want to get away.

Fantastic meal experience even late on a Sunday evening for a business dinner.
Appetizer recommendations were fantastic with wild mushrooms - a home run. The duck and dumplings and the hushpuppies were delicious as well.
Dinner entrees - Flounder was a generous size and perfectly cooked, the scallops and wild boar is a must have and the other entrees were fantastic as well.
Desserts - Lights out on the cheesecake (probably the best I have ever had). It is very light and fluffy with a delicious crumb crust. the chocolate cake and the warm carrot cake were fantastic as well.
The wines by the glass were delicious albeit the reds needed to be served at a cooler temp, they were a little warm.
One suggestion - even though our party was the last in the restaurant, please don't shut the lights off in the kitchen as we are paying the bill. This was probably inadvertent but it got a little dark as we were about to leave.

Definitely will be back!

We had a great evening and thoroughly enjoyed a long-overdue night away from the kids. Food was incredible, we did a bunch of small plates instead of entrees and all were incredible. Anthony, our server, was solid and had great recommendations throughout the night.

While the food was very good, the service was less than acceptable. The server reached across the table and knocked over the flower vase, spilling the water onto my husband’s plate and onto my husband. He took my husband’s napkin and our dinner guest’s napkin to sop up the water. A manager came by and was told what had happened. He grabbed my husband’s plate and took it away. Neither the server nor manager offered an apology, We also had to ask for new napkins because it didn’t seem to cross their minds.
No one ever asked if we needed another drink or if we needed anything.
There were four of us, two couples. Thé server never asked how to split the bill and showed up with one tab.
Very disappointed.

We had 7 people at the table. Everyone enjoyed the outstanding service, food and Mom’s Cheesecake. Little pricy and very noisy for my kind of atmosphere. Definitely recommended for special occasions.

Our server, Anthony, was fun, attentive, and knowledgeable. He made excellent recommendations and checked in with us frequently. He seemed to be having as much fun as we were, which really added to the experience. The food was absolutely delicious! We loved everything on the table. We started with the duck and oysters, then moved on to the shrimp and grits and sides of the seasonal veg (broccoli/ cauliflower hybrid), collard greens, and crab hush puppies. We also had wonderful cocktails, the port flight, cheesecake, and the sweet potato pound cake. There were 3 of us, so we tried lots of different things. Highly recommend!

Sitting at kitchen counter was an awesome experience to watch everything going on. The soups chef handed up some special treats and talked about prep and recipes. The chef was amazingly attentive to detail of the food and asked our opinion a few times. Definitely one of our top spots in town.

One of the best meals we have had in Charlotte. This was our third time here and all three times have been wonderful. The service is great and so is the food.
