We had a wonderful meal at Dressler’s. Our server, Asa, was amazing and navigated is through the menu. He made the perfect suggestions for each of us. Some highlights were the crab dip to start, the halibut for an entree, and the cheesecake for dessert. This was our first trip to Dressler’s, and we will be back again soon!

The food was great and the service was excellent. Reid was great and so was the guy who came around few times with display of desserts and choice of his recommendations and his perspective on the food scene in Charlotte. Enjoyed listening to Reid’s passion for international and cross country driving on his motorcycle.

Isabelle, our server, was by far and away the best server I’ve ever had. Knowledgeable, kind and patient with our table of inquisitive eaters.
Food was point on and the only complaint was the loud music, which once I complained was immediately turned down. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

We ate here for restaurant week and absolutely loved it! I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a date night, anniversary, or business dinner. I suggest the calamari appetizer and the apple cake dessert, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. You'll love it!

Since I'm not a member anywhere, I've used DRESSLER's as my quasi-country club for business meetings for many years. This year, I introduced the restaurant to two friends during Queen's Feast (i.e., Charlotte Restaurant Week) and could not have been happier. The menu selections were excellent; preparation service was friendly, polite and the prices were very good. We had fun!

Our anniversary always during restaurant week and we weren’t sure how the food or service would be but we will definitely be returning. Food and service were great. They even brought us a glass of champagne to celebrate our special day. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Not a big dessert eater but that warm apple cake was incredible.

Dresslers is conveniently located, with ample self-parking or a valet option.
Every person in our party of four was thrilled with his/her meal: perfectly grilled filet mignon, meaty crabcakes, to-die-for shrimp and grits, succulent seared salmon, and desserts like mama used to make!

We went during Restaurant week and our server was attentive even though there was a crowd, I ordered a Mojito. Later my table mate noticed my glass was cracked so a server brought me a drink in another drink. After leaving the restaurant, I noticed I had been charged for a second drink. Otherwise, both the dining experience and atmosphere were very good.

Food was great and service was A+. The menu had a lot of great options and even great drink options not found at restaurants at this stature. Would highly recommend for a nice date. Wish it wasn’t raining so I could’ve ate outside.

Several restaurants in the area have outstanding food. Dresslers is at the top of that list.

But what sets them apart is their high level of service. This is reflective of Jon and his team who not only train their people so well ... but also take care of them as well. It shows! Love it!

Our waiter Ryan was not the best, he was a bit rude and just didn't seem like he wanted our table. We were a birthday group and he just wasn’t feeling us!

Food was delicious and the service was really great. Gnocchi dish, in particular, was a standout. My only small gripe is that we were in that back room, which just doesn’t have the same ambience as the main dining room.
