We had an early Friday night dinner at Dogwood. Sometimes when something goes wrong - in this case, a piece of fish not cooked through enough - a restaurant has the opportunity to let you know how good they are. Dogwood came through; they replaced the entire entree even though we just asked them to throw the uneaten portion back on the fire. Everything else was terrific, especially the mussels and Mac n cheese. Great meal and great service. It was our first time there but we’ll be back.

From the friendly greeting on arrival, through warm, attentive service (Winter was our server and she's a real pro), and predictably good food, Dogwood never, ever disappoints. Highly recommended.

We had reservations yet had to wait for a table. Our table was in a corner right behind the hostess stand. Probably the worst table to get for a date night. My steak came out medium well when I ordered it medium rare. Our server was nice and offered us dessert but still a disappointing experience. We love Dresslers and had high expectations for Dogwood. I wouldn’t go back.

Place was nice but the food was nothing special. Was expecting much more. I had the Chicken pasta and the noddles were soggy. Best dish on the table was a special Chicken dish, should be moved to the menu.

Vibrant restaurant with a great menu - everyone at the table enjoyed their meal and we tried a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. Every plate was cleaned! The scallops & boar were fabulous and my favorite apps were the hushpuppies and oysters. Service was slow but not annoyingly slow - they were busy but they're probably always busy and should be used to the demands of a full restaurant.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience with Dogwood Southern Table & Bar. The ambiance is beautiful, the food was creative with exquisite presentation, and the service was impeccable. This is a quality establishment, but doesn't allow itself to be overly stuffy despite the location. Farm to table dining with mostly locally sourced fare. We were never in want of anything due to the warm and attentive staff. I look forward to my next meal here!

You will not be disappointed. We enjoy all of Mr Dressler’s restaurants as often as possible. It’s perfect for intimate dinners, small or large groups. Our family just dined at Dogwood and the food and service were outstanding. Super attentive wait staff, personal and friendly. Price point is very reasonable. All requests were honored with excellence.
You must try one of Dressler’s restaurants. Already planning the next visit!

We went on NYE and they failed to mention it was a preset dinner. We have gone a few times because we enjoy more tapas style dining but in this case were forced to order 4 courses instead each. The server clearly wanted us to leave as soon as possible so they could close down the restaurant since it was nye and we had a late reservation.

I went with my fiancee for New Years eve. This was our second time there and it was just as good or even better than the last time. Our server James was awesome. He made the evening feel pretty special. The only downside to my experience this time was that I did not like my the main course. I did not really understand what I was ordering unfortunately and when my big ol' pork shank came out it was overwhelming (I still have half of it in my fridge). I wondered why James smirked a little when I ordered it. I really like Dogwood for how tasty and perfectly portioned the dishes are, but this was just a big hunk of meat :) ...not a whole lot of flavor. Oh well, I know for next time. The lamb I got last year was fantastic. The appetizers and salads we got were awesome. The cocktails were great and the cheesecake is amazing. I definitely recommend.

I had the Dogwood Plate, Food was good; however I was very surprised that they served me burnt bacon. The issue was quickly resolved, however this is not the typical service that I know the Dressler’s’ would have desired.

This was a brunch celebration for our nephew’s 21st birthday. Chris went above and beyond.....he booked us at the high top table for privacy, personally addressed our nephew on the menu and provided both a welcome bubbly cocktail and their amazing pound cake! Although we live in Los Angeles, I will definitely come back on another visit and I highly recommend!

Have visited in the past and left having expectations exceeded. Can't say this visit was in that category. Food was good but not memorable and service was slightly off the mark but the restaurant was crowded (week before Christmas).

This was our first experience at Dogwood Southern Table and we enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant was warm and inviting and the noise level good so you could carry on the table conversation. The service was excellent and the proprietor visited the table and checked on us repeatedly. She was gracious and professional. The food arrived quickly after ordering and was good and the presentation appealing. One of our meals was a bit overcooked but they took it away immediately without an issue and quickly replaced it with a meal at the desired temperature. One member of our party ordered the Covina fish which she said was mushy in the middle but still tasty. Overall our first time there was good and we would consider having dinner there again.

This restaurant is, simply, amazing. My hat's off to the Chef, who provided my group with some of the best food I've encountered in Charlotte for some time. Pre-dinner cocktails were exceptional, and the bartender, Brian, crafted cocktails that were well thought out , light and fun. One of my guests actually asked, half way through the meal, if it would be possible to come back the next evening. I thought he was kidding, until he asked one of the managers if there were any reservations available for the next evening (there weren't, as the entire restaurant was booked for a private event.)
