Our Hotel said it was a good choice too and they were right!! A little pricey but well worth it for a special night out. Would go there again if I'm in the area.

Food served at room temperature. Halibut was very bland. Wish I’d known the potato cake had cheese in it- I’m lactose-intolerant. Ignored by our waitress who was giving lots of attention to next table. Guess we didn’t rate. Crab cakes nothing special. Brussels sprouts delicious and loved the pecan remoulade.

We were there with friends for my 70th birthday. Everything was perfect. We were in the back and it was very quite and enjoyable. Our waiter was very attentive and was at our table every few minutes. The owner was also there and he came out and spoke to us and brought out some of our food. With the good Lord's help I plan to spend my 71th birthday here.
Thank you so much

Can't say enough good things. Have eaten there for a number of business dinners, but also on my own dime for an anniversary w/ the wife because I enjoy it so much. Everything I've ordered has been great, but heart of ribeye is my favorite... get the blue cheese butter. And cheesecake for desert, it's mind-blowing.

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!
