The food was excellent, some of the best in Charlotte. The food was exceptional fresh. We ordered a fish special and the chicken entree., both were delicious. The service was attentive , friendly and prompt. The noise level was a bit loud but not too bad. I look forward to a return visit when it’s not too hot so we can enjoy the patio. The menu was pricey so this will be a special occasion restaurant for us.

Business/ personal lunch with good friend - very pleasant atmosphere. Servers were friendly, attentive and even brought over a free appetizer (duck breast - fabulous)). Usually we go for dinner, but lunch is a more relaxed experience, great for business conversations.

Food was good, but to much oil. They could dial back a little and it would be perfect. For example the pimento cheese had a pool in it. I would recommend they drain part before serving. Otherwise it is bomb and to complain about oil is an afterthought with how good it was.

The trout was fabulous but the succotash was over the top delicious. would like a little wider selection of moderately-priced wines by the glass .

Hard to determine if the food is better than the service or service is better than the food. The Dressler family simply knows how to do both. Excellent!

Our server was very nice but she kept taking our silverware. We needed knives and stuff for our charcutterie and had none. Same with spoon and the sweet tea was barely drinkable. Tasted pretty bad. Also, she kept clearing the plates when we were still working on them.

But overall, the food and ambiance was wonderful!!!

Excellent service, food very fresh and perfectly prepared!!Recommend duck and dumplings appetizer and scallops/boar entree. A little too pricey for us to be a weekly or by-weekly type restaurant but certainly worth a special occasion/date night. Will return in future.

My wife and I went there to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary and were treated like royalty! The executive chef Johnathan prepared my wife's monkfish flawlessly and I had the scallops and boar chops which was perfect. For a surprise they prepared some wonderful sorbet and a pound cake drizzled with caramel which they did not charge us for! Will was our server and our wine glasses never went dry. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to make their wife/partner/significant other feel special! We will return!

Food was delicious which is why I wanted to go and our server was great but I was so disappointed in the wine selection by the glass. Table was too dark to see menu. Had to pull the flashlight feature on the phone routine. Trout was good, chicken dish was delicious with purple polenta. It wasn’t as good as I remembered. I was a little disappointed since it was a birthday dinner

We came in Sunday for a late...1:30...brunch. From the front door right through to paying my bill we were met with a professional and personable staff! Our waiter, Brandon, was very helpful with menu suggestions and my brunch companion tried the Boar and loved it. I had delicious French toast that had a pistachio crust which contrasted beautifully with the soft, moist center. Portions were perfect. Did I mention the Bloody Marys? Just enough kick to satisfy.

This place just jumped to the top of my Brunch destinations.

I love to dine here but I am always taken back by the extreme noise level.It is very hard to hear your dinner companions and for that reason I hesitate to come very often.

We always enjoy our experience at Dogwood Southern Table and again they didn’t disappoint. It was odd that they were out of the special (Grouper) at 6:00pm but ok. Everything was wonderful especially the wild boar chops and scallops. (Scrumptious)

The only disappointment was the chocolate mousse cake which was dry. Also... please bring back Broken Dreams wine which we discovered originally at Dogwood. The alternative suggested by our server didn’t compare.

Went for my birthday on Saturday evening and couldn’t be happier with the food and the service. Wish I could remember our servers name as she was superb! The mussels were incredible and the venison carpaccio is to die for!
