This was for our small company’s Christmas party and it was a great choice. Everyone enjoyed their entree and dessert. There wasn’t a cocktail or wine ordered that they did not have. It was a very busy night in the restaurant but the food came out in a timely manner. The noise level did increase as the evening progressed but not to an annoying level.

One of our diners had some special food requests due to a medical condition and our server (I believe her name was Beth)was very accommodating.
We appreciated that they have Valet parking since it was cold and raining. They also checked our coats and brought them to us promptly at the end of the meal.

I would definitely recommend Dressler's to a friend looking for a nice meal.

We loved it. such wonderful service from the moment we walked in. We never wanted for anything. They were so attentive and warm. Even though there were a lot of big parties who got a bit loud, it was still very enjoyable and our dinner was beyond amazing.

We enjoyed our usual dishes at Dressler’s but service was not exceptional as we are accustomed to. Food was typically well prepared. Atmosphere was not as comfortable as normal but the Clemson Miami game was the next night so there were lots of large parties as well as Holiday gatherings .

Dressler’s is one of my favorite places for a special occasion. The food is always to-die-for and their wine menu is extensive. I always have wonderful service and you will frequently see the owner coming by to make sure you are enjoying your meal. Clearly I started eating before thinking of taking a photo!

Knocked it out of the park. Fantastic food from apps ,entree, to Apple Cake dessert. Elliot was very easy going along with knowledge about the cuisine as well. The GM stopped to chat for a bit and we now are aware of their sister restaurants Porters and Dogwoods which we will have to visit as well. Superb

Dressler's never disappoints. The servers are incredibly attentive. Mr. & Mrs. Dressler can always be seen there, checking on their patrons. My faves include the low country crab dip, ceasar salad, and the KC strip. I hear the desserts are incredible-I just never have room. We always go on the Living Social/Groupon deals which cannot be beat. $120 worth of food for $60. You cannot have that fine of food for that price anywhere else. Treat yourself-you will not be sorry.

Consistently excellent, Dressler's never disappoints. Everyone in the place is friendly and helpful, the bartenders pour a good drink, the chefs prepare creative and delicious meals and the wait staff is professional and knowledgeable. Under-appreciated against all the big names, but one of the top restaurants in Charlotte
