    It’s always a lovely experience at the McNinch House. The presence of Wes, the long-time sommelier, was greatly missed. The service, quality of food, and ambience was just as good as the first experience I had. I look forward to returning!

    Restaurant has been open since 1989 and though I have lived here that long, this was my first visit. Will definitely return as the service is impeccable and the food is divine.

    As always, the food, ambiance, and serve was outstanding. McNinch House is the only restaurant in Charlotte where you can carry on a conversation across the table without raising your voice. Most others require shouting until your voice is hoarse. It is an elegant experience served by delightful people. Will return again soon.

    The food was amazing as expected and the service was very friendly and polite. Terrell, the sommelier, was exceptional. His pairings were impeccable and delicious, but his presentation was the best I have seen! He even kindly took to time to give us an extra history lesson on some off-the-menu items after I told him how much I liked dessert wines. Can't wait to go again!
