    We chose Dressers for my Birthday as it was listed as a top restaurant in Charlotte. The hostess asked which of us were celebrating a birthday so she knew however our waiter said noone told him. He did take our dessert off the bill which was nice. My husband had Halibut as the waiter said it was a top favorite. There was no seasoning whatsoever on it so it had no taste. We were sat at a very small two top table shoved next to the window. I would not go back. We've enjoyed much better food and ambience elsewhere in Charlotte.

    The weather was perfect for an outdoor dining experience. Service was great, as we enjoyed cocktails, appetizers & entrees over a two hour dinner. The food was absolutely delicious, including an entree special of a generous filet of fresh swordfish.

    My wife and I were in town to celebrate her birthday and dinner at Dresslers was certainly one of the highlights. The food was plentiful, full of flavor and served in a well timed manner. Ryan was a wonderful server and supported by a great staff. The atmosphere was fantastic and a perfect setting for an upscale dinner date. We highly recommend this dinner experience.

    Took a chance on this place based on previous Yelp reviews and was not disappointed. The service was excellent. Gill, our waiter, was most accommodating and very professional. The food was good. And an extra bonus was this awesome band. Apparently they have music on Thursday and Friday. The music with the view of uptown made for a very special birthday celebration for my husband.

    Outstanding in every way. It starts at the top, as the General Manager accommodated our needs for a special dinner. We were seated outside where there was high quality live music, and a beautiful view of the skyline. We are holding a conference in Charlotte in October and will be highly recommending Dresslers to our attendees. Thanks again Josh and team for a wonderful evening! Vito Borrello
