Great atmosphere! Will definitely be back. Our server Eric was outstanding.
Great experience. Amazing service and food was phenomenal.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner with my husband. Edie was our server. She was very polite and knowledgeable. Her food recommendations were spot on. I had shrimp & grits, and brussel sprouts. Both were excellent. The hubby had pork chops and greens - the greens could have been cooked a little longer for us, but they were tasty. The restaurant exceeded our expectations for food and atmosphere. I wish diners would respect that and dress a little nicer. It did get pretty noisy when a table of 8 sat nearby. I’m guessing on weekends the dining room is pretty loud. However, I look forward to returning.
Food was excellent! Ambience was on point. Customer service wasn’t as attentive. Overall we had a wonderful experience.
Eric was amazing and informed server. THE BEST shrimp and grits hands down in Charlotte. One of my favorite places to dine.
New Orleans style BBQ shrimp appetizer - excellent flavor, fresh seafood, and not excessively spicy which was a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed the broccolini & Delmonico ribeye both well seasoned and cooked to perfection. Service has been consistently great on every visit.
Food was AMAZING this will be my go-to restaurant when I come to Charlotte
Service was excellent! Food well prepared and delicious. Cheesecake was one of the best I’ve had! Chocolate cake was pretty good. Highly recommend for anyone to try it!!
Very relaxed atmosphere and excellent food. Great outdoor dining.
Dressler's is a great restaurant for a quiet dinner and a nice evening out. The food is excellent and the service is the best I've found in Charlotte. You must try the Calamari, It's my favorite appetizer.
I ordered the wedge which was milk and water and tiny bits of blue cheese. 3/4 of the salad was yellow and appear to me old and should have been in the trash! I also ordered the calamari, and had 4 pieces of that and was cold! They took the wedge off the bill. I ate at the bar and could see the cook staff playing around and on their phones. Then I picked up my car and the valet guy had gum on the back of his pants, so I had gum all over my front seat! I had to pay a guy to get this all of car and costed me $100. Done!
Everything was phenomenal from the service to our food.
The only problem I had was the group who came in for their birthday was being a bit too loud It was kind of hard to communicate with my friends with all the noise they were making.
We gathered together for a family dinner. The food and service were up to Dressler’s standards. The only negative was the noise level coming from a large group in the main dining area. We had to shout to hear each other at our table.
Loved it so much!!! Awesome waiter James. It was his 2nd day and I couldn't tell.
Everything was amazing! Highly recommend the ribeye and mashed potatoes!
It was a great dinner overall and in all areas. Thanks.
Dinner was delicious and the server was very attentive.
Had an excellent meal. Sat outside on the shaded patio and enjoyed an great evening in Charlotte just outside of uptown. The meal was great. We had crab cake and also crab dip appetizers. Followed by grilled prosciutto wrapped peaches with brie. It was amazing. My wife had the chef make her some seasonal vegetables in a stir fry which she really enjoyed. I had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly. We shared the mac & cheese which was huge and very delicious. We also had the creme brulee' and apple crisp for dessert. Both were a hit.
Service was superb and we really appreciated the ability to pay via our cell phone by using the QR code.
This was a great experience and we will definitely be back.
Good food and good service
Dressler’s is all around top notch and the food and drinks never disappoint. Great service and ambiance, complimentary valet parking, with amazing skyline views from the patio… what’s not to love??
Waiter was great service was great and food put the icing on the cake .
Birthday Dinner it was nice. Lamb was delicious…sides were a little cold but good. My birthday dessert Cheesecake was very VERY good.
Overall it was good. The cocktail could’ve been better but overall it was okay.
My fiancé and I had not been to Dressler’s in over a year so we were looking forward to going back to one of our favorite restaurants and having a great dinner. We always order the same thing. I order crab cakes and he orders a filet. Our food did not taste as well as we remembered it being. My crab cakes did not taste as fresh and he barely finished his filet. We’re not sure if there was a new chef or it was just an off night. However, the New Orleans shrimp appetizer was great, full of flavor! Our dining experience was also not as enjoyable as we were sat next to a table whose guests kept hacking loudly which was an unpleasant sound to listen to every few minutes while you’re trying to enjoy your meal. We hope to revisit again in the future and enjoy the food and atmosphere like we were used to.
Loved this restaurant and the food! 10/10
I enjoyed our night out at Dresslers. Food was delicious, excellent service. The noise level increased with a large party, but even with that, it was a very enjoyable evening.
Our meal was spectacular in every respect, including server Erik. We enjoyed the ahi tuna appetizer, 8 0z filet, and wonderful Brussels spouts dish including bacon jam & cheese, finishing with chocolate expresso cake. WOW - A Great birthday dinner!!!!!
server was awesome! did a good job suggesting the rack of lamb
Iyana was such a great server. She made the entire experience pleasurable! Highly recommend the Shrimp and grits!
Wine & cocktails were great. Food was OK. We waited over 40 min. for our dinner to arrive.
Dressler’s is one of my favorite restaurant that I can always count on to provide the best of everything—especially food!
Great location. Nice decor. Clean. Spacious. Pleasant staff.
But I found the food to be sub par. We had a business group. No one raved about their food. I had the halibut. It was an odd shape. Looked over cooked. The crab on top was mostly filling. Just wasn't good.
Excellent Halibut. Gil was very attentive to all of our needs. Very personable and checked on us often. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. I usually frequent your Birkdale location and I must say Metropolitan rivaled it in cuisine and customer service. Ethan
We had the most pleasant evening celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary, and our server, Mandy, could not have been more professional, knowledgeable, or pleasant. She was AWESOME!!! Food was delicious and atmosphere was very nice....
Excellent culinary experience and service. Would recommend enjoying a special night out.
Have dined multiple times at this location and their other. Food has always been exceptional, service and over atmosphere outstanding.
We visited Dressler's for the first time. With a full restaurant we were greeted and sat promptly (we had a reservation). Our server (Gil) was OUTSTANDING, and definitely enhanced our experience. The pace of our evening was exactly what it should be. It was never rushed, but our drinks and food came out spaced in a timely manner. The food was hot, nice portion sizes and cooked as we requested. The taste of each of our appetizers and entrees was exceptional. The cheesecake and creme brûlée was the perfect way to finish our meal. The price point is where you would expect a nice Charlotte restaurant to be, for us it is more of a special occasion dining experience. We would definitely go back.
