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.

Absolutely amazing. The meal was one of the best I have ever eaten. The staff was personable and very professional. The ambiance of the restaurant was a casual elegance. Beautiful but not stuff. You can have a quiet conversation. Highly recommend

Well, as usual the food and atmosphere were excellent. Service was not so great this time. Very very slow service from trying to order wine, the ordering apps, then waiting on apps, then waiting on salad and so on and so on. We watched guests come in after us who were getting their meals before we even received our app. All in all it was a two hour dinner. Much too long on a Sunday night.
Usually not this way at all.

Another delicious dinner at Dresslers. We redeemed a groupon here and it was a great value. I always get the seared tuna appetizer, my husband had the gnocchi and for the mains i had a steak and he had the short ribs. The short ribs are now served with a risotto instead of the mashed potatoes. Both were delicious.

A first time visit for my wife and I to either Dressler's restaurant. We had received a gift card at Christmas and used it on this first-time visit to celebrate a major birthday for my wife. Everything was great...food, service, environment, etc. Kevin was our waiter and treated us perfectly...there when we needed him, not smothering us when we did not. Additionally, we enjoyed finding our in drop-by conversations that Eric, the manager, is also a very close neighbor to us. We will return to Dressler's, especially on those occasions when we are celebrating a major event. And, we will, and already have, started promoting Dressler's to our friends. Thank you!

My Wife and I went to Dressler’s to celebrate our 17th year anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was on point. It was a bit loud for conversation but they do have outdoor seating. FYI, free valet parking was a plus.

I had the heart of rib eye and it was a bit stuff. The sauce used was to overpowering and the meat taste was lost.Besides the poor taste the portions were quite small for your prices. $101.00. For two.

Our experience was okay. We had to wait a bit when we arrived for our table. The area in which we were seated was a bit noisy, due to larger parties around us. All of our servers were personable. The French onion soup was good. My filet was not as tender as I'd like. My husband had the lumped crab dish, which he enjoyed. The brussel sprout side was pretty bitter. We had brought home our desserts. Cheesecake was good and the chocolate rasberry cake was so dried out and unappetizing. We had decided to try a new date night restaraunt, but will probably not return here due to the food not wowing us, as much as we had expected it would.

For what the place sells itself as a fancier place to go. But the building is dusty and small things need to be repaired. The steak I ordered medium was a little burnt around the edges. And mostly brown. the very friendly waitress did however offer to take it back to the kitchen.

I had a gathering of my girlfriends for dinner at Dressler’s. Two had never been to the Resturant and two of us go there regularly. We had a GREAT time and a delicious four-course meal (appetizers, salad, entrees, and dessert). We had a leisurely dinner and fairly attentive service in a convenient location near Uptown Charlotte. Dressler’s had a menu that offers a good variety with consistent taste.

Our steaks were prepared poorly or just OK, and when when one of us sent an overcooked steak back, it came back raw. And one our ribeyes was not tender at all even though it was cooked to right temperature. On the positive side, Dressler's has an excellent wine and spirits selection, and our server and management were very attentive.
