This was our first time at Peppervine and it won't be our last. Everything was exceptional. The decor is beautiful. Then the excellent service began and never stopped. Samantha was our waitress but she had the assistance of what seemed like the rest of the staff. The timing of every facet of the meal was perfect. The food was incredible, from the pimento cheese scones to the heirloom tomatoes, to the Korean ribs, shrimp and grits, fried chicken and short rib pastrami. All four of us shared everything. We finished the meal with a S'more. Additionally they have a "somm" on staff who recommended a delicious two bottles of cab. This place is first class all the way and a pleasure to experience.

Great atmosphere and drink menu, my only issue was the menu in regards to vegetarians. I had one guest with me that was and he was somewhat limited in choices. Otherwise the shareable plates and variety were very good. Will go again

Food and the wait staff were excellent. There was a bit of an unnecessary wait to be seated which should have been avoided but the staff made up for it.

Wonderful service by David and the sommelier Michael. We enjoyed several shared plates, and the roasted beets were my favorite. The Chef did an amazing job on the sea scallops and the pastrami. Don’t leave without having dessert!

The restaurant was beautiful and the wine list is well done with amazing selections and very fairly priced.

Our first time. We went with elderly parents and had a terrific time. Food was fantastic and service, too❗️

We made another reservation before we left the table.

Highly recommended ❗️

The food was fantastic, my fish was cooked perfectly. We had a bottle of champagne recommended by the sommelier that complimented our entire meal perfectly. I just wish they would have slowed down on coursing out our dinner so that we can enjoy it. Also, the dessert menu left something to be desired; especially given how spectacular the dinner menu was.

We had our recent Board dinner at Peppervine and it was terrific. Great place for a business dinner, particularly on the early end. We had 6 pm reservations and by 8 it was getting a little noisy. The carpet helps!

Food was delicious. Not a complaint from anyone about anything. Great job! We’ll see you again for our next meeting in December. I’ll be there with my wife before then though.

Four of us enjoyed s lovely evening at Peppervine. The decor is hip but understated, delivering a really pleasant environment. Server was knowledgeable, fun and efficient. Food was top knot here and properly seasoned. We really enjoyed the whole evening. Even the valets were on top of things! Well done all around!

The service was slow, it took forever to receive our drinks. We requested a medium/well steak and it came raw instead. Overall, we didn’t have a good experience. This place is overpriced for what it offers.

First time to Peppervine. Had a very good night. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, but is a bit loud for quiet conversation. That is my biggest complaint. Overall, the food and service were both excellent. I would say that the food was worth the price, but perhaps the portion sizes were a bit small.
Our table ordered the Soft Rolls which were piping hot and absolutely melted in your mouth. We also ordered the Tomato Salad and Fried Oysters. Both were extremely delicious. Entree's consisted of the Ribeye Steak which was cooked to perfection as well as Scallops and Halibut entree's. Everyone enjoyed their food, but the highlight was dessert. The table could not stop raving about the how great the coffee was as well as the Smores dessert. I personally had the Citrus Pavlova which was definitely a highlight!
This will be added to our rotation.

We enjoyed our dinner at Pepperdine. We ordered six small plates to share and all were multi-faceted and delicious. There are small changes we’d recommend to some but they were still tastefully presented and delicious. Our service was outstanding. Our waiter Aaron knew about food and we could talk about how each dish was prepared in detail — not often is a server that knowledgeable.

LOVED Peppervine. It was our first time there. We eat out every Friday night and are always looking to try new places. Peppervine was hands down the best meal I have had in Charlotte. The only meal I’ve ever had that could even come close is possibly when we dined at K Paul’s place in New Orleans many years ago. Everything thing about it was outstanding...the taste, the presentation, the staggering of the courses, the ambiance...and the service was over the top. It’s was just a phenomenal evening from
beginning to end. It wasn’t cheap. The prices are on par though with other places in the area like Ruth’s Chris, Del Frisco’s, etc. but it was worth every penny. This place is a true gem. We will be back! Thank you Peppervine!

Excellent pork belly, cauliflower, fried chicken, and yeast rolls. Seafood pot was lacking flavor and should have been served with bread for the sauce to dunk in. Beef ribs were tasty but not quite done enough. Peach cobbler dessert was awful and almost sent it back. Drinks were ridiculously overpriced.

The food here is meticulously prepared by people who take their craft seriously. Small plates are predominately on the menu which allows for the discovery of their menu. We sat on the patio as it was nice evening, the decor inside it well done and a lively but not loud atmosphere. I dont think you will be disappointed with this restaurant. Great wine list. Service was very good.

The service is impeccable! The food is inventive and very tasty! They made a carbonara with a pouched egg on top, you cut into it and make a beautiful sauce. And that’s the way it should be done! Korean fried chicken was excellent! Squid ink pasta was very tasty but the squid was a little chewy. We shared all the plates and it was perfect. Overall a great dinner and the price was very reasonable! We will be back!

I was very disappointed. I just moved in to Piedmont Row so I was eager to try this new restaurant! We had a reservation at 8:45 and we were seated at 9:15. While we waited for our table we went to the bar and had a signature cocktail each. Neither was very good and the tab for two drinks was almost $40 including tip. If you're going to charge that much you should at least serve a good drink. We didn't send them back even though the bartender offered to try to "doctor them", he insisted that "everyone" loved their drinks and especially the two we ordered.

The dinner choices we made were the Scallops ($19) and the Shrimp and Grits ($15) and a Salad ($11) and Yeast Rolls ($5) . While the tapas price is low, there was so little food on plates we were still hungry after eating. That one could be solved by ordering more food, however; while the quality of the food was not bad, it certainly wasn't as good as I expected it to be. The shrimp and grits were not good at all because I picked grits out of my teeth until I could get home and wash my mouth out and floss. The grits were undercooked and terrible. The sauce around the grits was excellent and the shrimp okay, but were only slightly larger than small, not even a medium size. It was 4 small bites. The scallops my friend ordered tasted delicious but were tiny, only 3 of them and that was it. The yeast rolls were tasty but undercooked and doughy on the inside. When we asked the waiter about the rolls he said that's the way they are supposed to be! The atmosphere and ambiance was wonderful. I hope you work on your menu offerings in both quality and quantity, or like the rest of the restaurants who refuse to get it, you won't be there long. I'm particularly sorry to write this review because I live there, but I want you to succeed so I'm going to be brutally honest about the experience.
