The waiter was terrible. Makes the whole experience bad! Unfortunate cause the food was yummy but took us 21/2 hours to get through our meal and we ordered maybe 30 minutes after sitting down. Steak was not cooked correctly, sent it back and they didn’t wait either time to see if it was corrected. Just not good hospitality, went with guest from out of town and was disappointed.

The best part of the meal was getting the table I asked for. I’m an old geezer and noise drives me nuts. We got a great table in the corner and could have a pleasant conversation without resorting to sign language.

We’ve been here many times and love it. The food and drinks are always fantastic and the location is great - nicer strip mall location, and plentiful parking. We went to another nearby restaurant for Mother’s Day and it was a nightmare. We decided on Dogwood for Father’s Day because we’ve never been failed during any visit. Things started out fine until it took 70 mins for our main courses to arrive. In the time we were waiting, two nearby tables were seated, ordered, served, paid, and left; with one of the tables having just as many people as we had. It was really frustrating when the delay was only ever acknowledged by our server once when she thanked us for our patience when the food finally arrived. She never came by to update us during the wait, she refilled drinks once in the time we were waiting, and couldn’t even bring bread out for our two little children to nibble on while we waited for their meals. Don’t get me wrong, she seemed nice enough but she could have done a much better job in handling the inexplicably long wait. We’ve always taken out of town guests to Dogwood for dinner but this last visit has left a pretty bad taste in my mouth and I don’t know that we’ll be making any real effort to return in the near future.

One of the best meals I’ve had in over 20 years in Charlotte. It was my birthday, and our waitress brought us complimentary champagne and a dessert to boot! My octopus and mussels were absolutely delicious and my husband ate every bite of his shrimp and grits. My 8 year old foodie loved the ribs and the gruyere Mac and cheese. Even the fries were amazing! A perfect meal and perfect service! Our Bostonian waitress was lovely! We will be back!

As many new restaurants as there are these days, Dogwood Southern Table is a classic. I have been here for both business and social occasions, and it never disappoints.

I've heard great reviews about this restaurant and decided to pick the place to dine at with a girlfriend. We had a calm dinner outside on the patio. We didn't order alcohol. She had the pork loin with your regular salad and a side of macaroni and cheese. I had the arugula salad as an appetizer with wild boar and scallops as the main dish. We shared the cheesecake for dessert. I liked how the servers recommended the temperature for the meat that we ordered. I would have chosen medium-well for my meat if the server didn't disclose the chef's suggested temperature. Since the recommended was rare I chose medium-rare and it was a huge difference. The wild boar was exquisite. The meat juices were melting in my mouth. Never had boar before and will definitely recommend the dish to friends and family. Lastly, I thought the best cheesecake in town was at Del Frisco's, but I was wrong. As the description on the menu states - You've had the rest. Now try the best...it was. The cheesecake was THE BEST I've ever had. Thank you for a wonderful night with a good friend.

Food was tasty though quite a bit salty and buttery. Service was friendly enough but timing of food delivery was slow. Worth the trip from downtown Charlotte where we were staying.

For our second experience we couldn’t believe it would be even better then our first but the entire team did an amazing job.
From the beginning answering our request of having the same server Adi ( who is spectacular!) to the table we wanted. Every attention to detail by Adi and the team was flawless.
The cocktails and appetizers were amazing. And our dinners were excellent. The dessert Madeira and homemade cheesecake was unbelievable we loved it.
Thank you for making our out of town guests have a great impression of Charlotte.
We look forward to coming back soon.

Loved the food - where else will you find wild boar combined with scallops? I had the duck- tender with crispy skin. The sauces on both dishes were to die for. Oreo cheese cake - very light and delicious. Would love to return after summer and give the outdoor patio a try. Not inexpensive but very special. Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff all around.

Winter is the best server ever! My husband and I came for Sunday brunch and enjoyed the mimosas, biscuits, steak and eggs and burger.
We were initially sat inside and were left without drinks or a server for 10 minutes. We then saw Winter serving tables on the patio and requested to move to her section. She remembered us from previous visits and took great care of us! We love the food here and will definitely return.

I was with three other women. Two of them had already been to Dogwood. It was my first tome but definitely will not be my last. It is a wonderful restaurant with amazing food and the best customer service I have experienced I. Charlotte in a while. Would highly recommend! It’s a bit pricey but worth it, especially for a special occasion.
