Ordered salad, filet, and potatoes that I shared with a friend. Ordered the filet medium. It came out very very rare that immediately when I cut into it I wanted to send it back. Unfortunately our waitress never came back to check on us for like 10/15 minutes. I was able to eat around the edges since they were a little less rare but ridiculous that the server didn’t come back. My friend also had ordered sauce she didn’t get and wanted so ate most of her meal without. Server also kept trying to take my salad plate which I repeatedly asked to keep. Lastly I ordered a drink at the end of dinner the waitress brought the checks and my friends drink and I asked if mine was coming. She had forgotten to wring it in so took the check back and added it. For over 100$ for one person including tip and 45$ for a steak this was not worth it at all.

From the moment we entered the restaurant our wonderful night began! We were seated by the window with a beautiful view of the Christmas tree outside. Our server, Ayana was nice and patient with us (it took us awhile to decide on drinks, food, etc). Ayana answered questions for us too regarding menu changes. The calamari appetizer was delicious! And my son and I both ordered the filet mignon. Slightly charred on the outside; tender on the inside. Yum! The evening was wonderful! I will certainly be returning!!!!

It was very nice the ambiance was lovely it really set the mood dimmed lights soft music all great😁The food was delicious 😋 & was worth it to us. The service on the other hand I believe the server was a little overwhelmed she had a big table that was by us & I think a few somewhere else bc she would check on us like every 10-15 mins so other than that it was great

Food and our server Eric was amazing. The cigar smell from the night before was very strong and bothersome so that took away from the ambiance.

We went for my son’s birthday dinner. He ordered a steak medium rare. He got it and there was no pink at all. They took it back and made him another one. In the meantime we ate while he sat and watched us. He got the second steak, still not medium rare but at least there was some pink in the middle. I felt awful because this was his birthday dinner, which I spent $445 for and he could not even eat at the same time as us and it was not cooked to his liking. Very disappointing.

Excellent food and service. Eric did an excellent job taking care of our table. Management checked on us as well which is good. Only issue was when the initially tried putting 6 200 lb plus guys into a both. We asked to be changed and we’re accommodated quickly.

What a wonderful restaurant! We had an early dinner (5pm) on Wednesday night. Less crowded at that time which was perfect for us. Jeremy our server was extraordinary and the food superb. We had old fashioned cocktails (a la Dressler’s style with Licor 43) then the salmon and the scallop entrees along with pumpkin cheese cake dessert. The fantastic view of the city was just an extra bonus!

From the moment we walked in: Friendly masked staff and spaced out diners. Our waiter, Gil, was wonderful! Such a personality, who was spot on with his service and appeared when we needed him. Gil clearly wanted to make our evening enjoyable. The food was excellent: well prepared (Halibut and Salmon) and well presented. We were there with another couple and cannot remember when we had such a quiet and comfortable dinner out. Prices were in line with "fine" dining and service. We plan to make this a go-to place & we will be requesting Gil.

Everything was great. The only downfall I had was I booked my reservations on Sep. 21st for Oct. 29th and asked for the private booth section. It wasn’t until I got there when I was told, someone is in that section. I would have liked to been told that way ahead of time instead of me and my date getting our hopes up for a great private nite.

Excellent Service as usual. I've never had bad service here and I've been here more than a dozen times over the past five years. Our entrees were excellent (halibut & short ribs) but our cajun shrimp appetizer was quite underseasoned...a little bit of salt goes a long way. The table next to us was loud (4 women) which detracted from the generally peaceful atmosphere but we ignored it as best we could. Otherwise, Dressler's continues to be one of my favorites places to dine in Charlotte and I will certainly be back.
