Once again Dogwood hits all markers first with service from the minute you enter the door. Our server Adi always generous with information and suggestions. Excellent cocktails, wine, starters and main courses and handmade desserts that are amazing.
We keep coming back and continue singing it’s praises.

A great evening! Took my wife out for drinks and a delicious meal. We had a wonderful experience.

I’ve been here after work several times but only to the bar. It is well above par. Tonight my wife was impressed that our wait person was so knowledgeable. My wife wanted to try a new beer selection so was asked excellent questions and chose a good brew. (Thank you Jocelyn.) I had the Legends of the Fall drink. It’s a house standard and delicious with a smoked cinnamon bark glass. We had the hot pimento cheese plate as an appetizer. Excellent! I recommend it.

For entrees we had Pork Loin and Grouper. What great food!

We ended the evening with Mom’s Cheesecake. Probably the best I’ve ever had.

Again, the meal was outstanding. The service was excellent. The interior design and feel of the place is top notch.

First time dining in Charlotte. Saw lots of great reviews on open table so we decided to give it a try. Great location. Cool ambiance inside. We started with cocktails which were very good. The OF and French Martini. Then we had the crab and chorizo hush puppies which were outstanding. More like a mini crab cake. Then the baked pimento cheese which were fighting over who was going to finish it. Gooey decadence. The duck entree was delicious as was the grouper. Our only complaint was the wine service. They didn’t bring it out until after we were half way done with entrees. Our server was flustered with a large table next to us. He forgot which wine we ordered and then brought it late. It was also warm room temperature. Not a good thing for $100 bottle of wine. We didn’t try desserts this trip. Will be back minus the wine next time.

Great food! And Russian waiter was amazing. However, the Male host got us off to a rough start. Told us that he couldn't seat us at a table for 4 unless there were 3+ people. However, there were 3 tables for 4 in which there were only 2 people. The younger Male host got us moved and was VERY accommodating.

Food was outstanding. Service was not as good as I would have expected for the price to eat there. We sat outside and the valet kept backing cars up onto the sidewalk just a few feet away from where we were sitting. Nothing like smelling exhaust fumes while you spend $100+ to eat dinner. Service was very slow. My main aggravation is that my fiancé ordered a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon house wine and they charged us $20 for one glass. It wasn’t the house wine obviously. Just very aggravating. Overall the food was delicious. Just service doesn’t match.

Winter was a great waitress! She kept our coffee and tea full and then when we sat on check (we were at the tail end of brunch) she kept our waters full. Excellent chicken and biscuit and shrimp and grits were very colorful with broiled okra , kale and fresh vegetables! Our favorite Sunday brunch spot!

I love Dogwood and have been several times. The food is consistently flavorful and great and the service is outstanding! I took a friend there for her birthday lunch yesterday. This friend has traveled the world and eaten in may fine restaurants. She had the hamburger for lunch and said it was the best she has ever had!! I think that is a fine endorsement for the hamburger there. The waitstaff is the best too! I love everything about Dogwood.
