Dressler's Restaurant - Metropolitan (Midtown) Ratings and Reviews
We went there for our anniversary and it was great. Our waiter Michael was incredible and very helpful with suggested wine parings with appetizers and dinner. When we got a little deeper into wine parings with dinner, he brought over the wine steward who took a good deal of time with us and allowed us to taste several wines to see what we would like. Desserts were also very indulgent and well done. I had been to Dressler's for business lunches before and it was quite good. But this was a very different experience in the best possible way. I would highly recommend Dressler's to anyone.
Treated my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. We've been on a mission to find the best steak in Charlotte and they did not disappoint. The steaks were amazing! One of the best steaks we've had thus far. And we've eaten at quite a few of the high-end steakhouses in uptown. She had the Blackened Heart of Ribeye and I had the Filet with the Roasted Mushroom Demi Glace. Both cooked Medium to perfection. The sides were amazing. My girlfriend doesn't eat a lot of mashed potatoes and said that those were the best she's ever had. Everything was great! The service. The ambiance. Was very top notch. We will definitely be coming back here.
My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine's Day at Dresslers Midtown and it was absolutely wonderful! The service was prompt and precise, and the food was incredibly delicious with generous portions. Loved choosing from the 4 course set Valentine's Day menu. On our way out, we asked the hostess to take our picture, the manager walking by heard us and insisted that he take us outside for a photo op with the city skyline in the background! Now that is going above and beyond. Nothing but good things to say about this place. Can't wait to come back!
My colleagues and I choose Dressler’s every time I visit Charlotte and we have never been disappointed until this visit last visit.
The short rib always our go to, and was theirs this time too. However, I decided to try something different so I ordered the steak medium rare and it came out chilled at the bottom atop warm fries. The mushroom risotto and the warm goat cheese appetizer were the only items that neutralized my food experience. As always, my company was refreshing.
The service, the hostess and the manager were attentive and awesome as always.
Really an excellent restaurant. We have been a couple of times and everything we have eaten has really been fantastic. This trip I had the New Orleans shrimp- very well done and very flavorful - spicy but not too much. For entree I enjoyed a special of golden tilefish- was in mushroom risotto with spinach and it was truly a lovely presentation and I could have licked the plate if I wouldn’t have been embarrassed. My husband had the KC steak and house made fries and was very pleased with his dinner.
What a fantastic restaurant! We were so pleased and excited that we picked Dressler's for our anniversary dinner. The wait staff love what they do, everything that comes out of the kitchen is made from scratch and is well done. One of the top Steak's I have ever experienced.
Had a reservation for Saturday night and walked in to find an ocean doctors there for some event. They took over the place, and regular guests were ushered into the private room. I prepared for the worst.
I must say that food and service were excellent, especially considering how busy they must have been with the group. My fish dish was perfectly prepared, which is not easy to find.
I have been a fan of Dressler's for years. I've frequented both locations, and have enjoyed many wonderful meals. This one was quite mediocre. I ordered the shrimp and grits (as I have had before) and this time it was bland and flavorless. Had I not been involved with a business meeting, I probably would have sent it back. The texture of the grits in the broth did not hold up, and the food was disappointing overall. The service and ambiance, however, were good.
I came with My husband for restaurant week. We are huge fans of Porterhouse and decided to try here as they are owned by the same owners. Valet, hostess, and server were amazing. Flawless service until we got dinner. It was a 9:30 PM reservation. My Wedgie salad was not great. Very over dressed and the lettuce was wet. My steak was tough and hard to cut. I have had much better cuts of meat at lower end chain restaurants. My husband got the Crab cakes which were very dry and filled with breadcrumbs. I even tried the greens that came with his. Parts were brown and they were wilted. Very bad for a restaurant at this level. He asked to switch his crab cakes for the steak asking for it to be prepared Medium. We knew we would have to wait but figured it would not be long with most diners clearing out. When the steak was brought it was so chard he had to cut pieces away and not eat them. We were very sad by this. we felt this was a great time to experience What Dresslers had to offer and was left overpaying for a sub-par meal.
Ok, this was the second time we when here and both times have been great. Plus this was Charlotte Restaurant Week, funny thing we both got basically the same thing.
Salad, Roasted Salmon with roasted tomato risotto, and the Mom's Apple Cake for dessert. This was a great meal, and since it was Charlotte Restaurant Week we each got our own Apple Cake (we had the box one up to go).
The lady waiting on us was great too, and this is a place we will be going back too
We enjoyed absolutely amazing calamarires, short ribs, and crispy salmon. Wish these beautiful dishes were served with some vegetables. French onion soup had too much sodium. We tasted several deserts including apple cake, carrot cake, chocolate mousse, and creme brulee. the latter was out of the world. Great service, well trained and friendly staff. We had a very pleasant evening.
