Upscale, urban setting with attractive decor and great ambiance. The food was superb, so flavorful, and the service was stellar. We will definitely dine there again, and send our friends. We also want to check out the other location and sister restaurants.

I ordered the blackened ribeye and asked for it medium well. They brought it out and it was rare and bloody. I asked them to please cook it longer to med well. It came out 15 minutes later and was just ok. They did nothing to comp the service.

Enjoyed a terrific evening once again. This was our anniversary. It’s a bit noisy but the food and service far outweigh the fact that you may have to speak a little loudly across the table to one another. Can’t wait to return.

It was Halloween night and we were seated on the patio; there were 3 couples, each with a dog. The Charlotte skyline was lovely and it was a perfect night out. Other dogs were being walked on the greenway which runs just below the patio and our dogs enjoyed seeing them.

AS usual I was pleased with both the food and service at Dressler's. I had a friend in from out of town and wanted an upscale spot that wasn't too noisy (for a catch up). Nobles fit the bill.

Dressler’s is a great restaurant! The service is great! If you want a server that is friendly knowledgeable and professional, ask for Asa!
The food is always excellent and they always have something new to go along with their awesome regular menu.
Guys... if you want to take a date to a great place and feel comfortable, Dressler’s is the Home Field advantage! Go and enjoy!!

This was a great experience! We celebrated our Anniversary. Loved that they greeted you with a Happy Anniversary complimentary champagne and dessert. The service was excellent!! The food was great . My husband had halibut fingerling , potatoes and spinach. He said it was great.; portion was a little on the small size. I had the chicken which was great as well, maybe lacked a little seasoning but still great. My portion was just right. We had the apple cake, but it was cold. I didn’t complain it was complimentary. Overall they made our night special and I will be back!

We had a birthday dinner for my son. Every aspect of our meal was perfect except for the chopped salad. The salad was loaded with greens with little of the other ingredients. The bacon bits were not authentic. (Suggestions..Check out chopped salad at Halls Chop House and Ruth Chris in Greenville, SC.

My husband & I celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Dressler’s. After being seated, the Manager(?) surprised us with two glasses of rose sparkling wine! Terry, our waiter, was awesome - attentive, accommodating, fun to talk to! The only complaint was that our steaks were very salty but flavorful and cooked to perfection. I highly recommend Dressler’s for any occasion!!

We visited Charlotte for the weekend and found Dresslers through the internet reviews. Great place to be, perfect service and very nice ambience. The menue comes in paper and ipad (with lots of information and pics around food & baverage) which is very nice especially for picking the wine, which by the way was excellent as well as the food. Will be back for sure when we are the next time in Charlotte.
