Very pleasant experience. I took myself out for a birthday dinner date, and I do not regret it. There was only one server and she held it down like there were two others. She didn’t miss a beat! She even served up my birthday creme brûlée alongside a birthday song. The manager joined in as all! I love it. What a night!

I have been to this restaurant several times. I reserved a table for 10 this time for my dads birthday, who had never been there. My parents arrived first, 30 minutes early. The hostess told my mom that when 5-6ppl have arrived, they could seat us. When I arrived, we only needed 2 more ppl to be seated. When they arrived, I approached the hostess and let them know, but then I was told that the entire party had to be there. First issue. A few minutes later 8 out of 10 people were there and I again asked if we could be seated. The guy (same one who told me no) reluctantly agreed to seat us. We ordered and our waitress was nice. But, my food came out with a hair in it. I sent it back, everyone else's food was fine. Then the bill came. My bill was discounted for the hair issue. I paid for my mom. But when she charged the card, the discount was not applied. Again, I had to request a change. Overall we had a good time because that's what we do. However, the service could be a little better.

We ordered the lobster and it was over cooked and not seasoned as advertised. Zay was our wait person and he was amazing. We’d return just because he was that good.

The server forgot our salad until after we’d had our steak. Just wasn’t impressed with the food nor the sides of asparagus and the Brussels sprouts. The calamari appetizer had jalapeño bites and fried pickles mixed in with it. The best thing we had were the oysters and the old fashioned. Glad we tried it, but probably won’t be back.

Took forever to get our food… they gave last call to us before the food even came and they started putting chairs on top of the tables.
Dinner reservation at 8:15 for 14 ppl and they gave last call at 9
Awful

I took my 12 year old daughter here during our Christmas getaway to Charlotte. We were both really excited about the restaurant and food. Unfortunately we were really disappointed with our meals. She had the American Kobe burger and I had the Stuffed Salmon. The salmon was delicious but everything else was not. My daughter complained that her burger was plain with no seasoning. She tried to dress it up with salt and proper to no avail. She only ate half her meal and allowed the server to discard the remainder. My sides (sautéed spinach, green beans and then swapped for asparagus) were all very oily and also had no flavor.

The atmosphere and our server were nice. She did swap out one of my sides after I told her I didn’t like it. Unfortunately I paid $5 for the substitute. Altogether our meal was $70 (before tip) and we both left dissatisfied. I regretted not going to less expensive restaurant as I believe the food would have been better. I’ll be honest I wished I could have horn my money back. I really felt it was a waste.

Service was excellent. Our waitress was knowledgable listened to our requests and made sure everything we requested was actually delivered. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and the deserts were fantastic. We have never been disappointed when choosing this restaurant for a special occasion.

Only negative comment is that the overall facility is in need of an update.

I've never eaten here before; and seeing the pricing, I had fairly high expectations. During our meal, I looked at my wife and said, "Want to know what I feel this restaurant is? It's a really, really, really, fancy Applebees. The food was obviously frozen a short time ago. The ingredients aren't fresh. And the service is moderate, with multiple drinks not being able to be made due to "we're out of those ingredients".
Unfortunately, I won't be coming back. For $190 meal, I expected WAY better.

The gentleman at the host/hostess stand told us there was not a Snuggie/curtained area available for seven, even though we had specifically requested it and they assured us they had one when we made the reservation over the phone. Fortunately, another hostess came over and when she saw my reservation immediately seated us in the curtained/corner area we requested. I am so glad she was knowledgeable and came over, otherwise we would have been very disappointed with our Christmas Eve reservation. I think McCormick and Schmick‘s has the best lobster bisque in Charlotte, although it is very pricey at $17 a bowl and their apple pie dessert was some of the best we have ever had. However, I found their stuffed salmon (Chef’s special) dry and needs a sauce of some kind; all of the lobster orders at our table were good, but melted butter should come standard (and we shouldn’t have to ask for it).

As always, the food was exceptional. The noise is at a perfect level where you can hold a conversation. Service was great. It was just what we wanted after a Carolina Panthers loss - not a celebration but a consistently excellent experience and dinner.

This was our first visit to this location. I had the lobster bisque and a salad. The bisque was especially outstanding with lots of lobster in it! One friend had salmon which was very good. The only complaint was that she had asked for substitutions on the sides which she was given. However, she wasn't told it would be extra. Another friend had a steak which was excellent.
