One of my favorite restaurants in Charlotte! Service is attentive but not overbearing. Food is thoughtful and offers variety of flavor profiles. Wine list and sommelier service excels for different price points. Overall a wonderful experience!

We have not eaten inside a restaurant in a long time and in honor of Son’s birthday, we went to Peppervine in Charlotte. Wow. Just wow. Christian was the most amazing server and all the plates were beautiful and delicious. A very fancy treat. Tables were distanced (50% capacity) and even the kitchen staff were all masked (our table was right next to the open kitchen). Quite a splurge but so worth it!

I need to preface my review. In a non-Pandemic world, this review would be absolutely glowing. However, we are living in a world where we have had to change and adapt to keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible.
People reading this review may say, if you don't feel comfortable, don't go out to restaurants. I would respond and indicate that we are trying to do our part to keep businesses, restaurants, and workers in business and solvent.
I must say that the food and atmosphere at Peppervine is great. We will definitely be back, just not until after the Pandemic is over.
Some comments for the restaurant that may be helpful:
1. Seat people as far away from others as possible. We had to specifically request this of the hostess when there were numerous open tables. Preferably, seat from the back of the restaurant and then work towards the front.
2. Leave a carafe of water at the table. The water glasses are very small. Having a waiter refill the glass numerous times in a visit is extra exposure.
3. Have less wait staff for each table. We were contacted by at least 6 different wait staff members. While that sounds like exceptional service, when you are trying to limit exposure, this doesn't help.
4. Wait staff need to wear gloves when placing items on the table in front of the customers.
5. Efforts should be made to limit trips to the table. If silverware needs to be replaced, combine that with another trip rather than make an extra trip. Again, minimizes exposure. We never went more than 3-5 minutes without a waiter there.
6. Wait staff should try to not engage the table while customers are actively eating or drinking. I understand that sometimes it simply can't be avoided, but we were often interrupted without an opportunity to put our mask back on before someone was literally reaching over us.
Again, Peppervine is a great restaurant. Under normal circumstances the service would be considered great. But due to the Pandemic things need to be a bit different.

The food and service was excellent but was disappointed with the cocktails. In their Manhattan vermouth is replaced with Campari and it overtakes the whole cocktail. The Sazerac was decent. Also at this price point you should expect clear ice.

My husband and I decided to enjoy a long overdue date night since we had resigned not to eat inside during the pandemic. We choose Peppervine on a Tuesday night thinking we would be the New Year’s Eve crowd. Surprisingly, it was quite full, but situated socially distant.

It was such a treat to sit in a restaurant and the food did not disappoint. As a matter of fact, the short rib entree was so amazing that we ordered a second one!! I wish I could rate the device higher, as our server was nice enough and did a good job overall. However, when we asked the server his menu suggestions, he asked us if we hand any allergies or foods we do not eat and we told him that we do not eat pork. He began to share his suggestions...two of which were the boar and spare ribs...both pork! As a server, you must know without a doubt what is on your menu and how they are prepared. This could be a matter of life or death for some of your patrons. Fortunately, this was not the case for us, but it is a religious preference we appreciate having respected.

Good experience overall!! And Peppervine will remain one of our favorite restaurants in Charlotte!!

We love Peppervine. Coming from living in Montreal for a few years, we are accustomed to high-quality food and restaurants with European ambiance and flavor. After a trip to Boone, NC and an unbeliever dining experience at Artisinal, we found out that Peppervine is their sister restaurant in the heart of our new hometown (Charlotte). We immediately had to go! We have been twice now, and it has become our new favorite place for birthdays and anniversaries and we’ll continue to dine for many more occasions.

The ambiance is great; a little on the bright versus cozy side but pristine and modern. The service has been very good both times and the food is delicious. Unique and complex flavors in each dish — nothing you could find elsewhere.

Highly recommend!!

Good variety on menu, everything we ordered was wonderful. Wife's cocktail was quite good. The fellow who poured my beer into its glass did a terrible job, there was more head than beer in the glass by the time he walked away. That's nitpicky but worth mentioning because the service was otherwise very professional. If you are coming to drink wine I think you're probably in for a treat, apparently there are two sommeliers on staff. Nice atmosphere, not too stuffy but definitely polished. No valet parking (maybe due to covid)

Peppervine was a beautiful restaurant with easy street access and convenient parking. The menu offered a range of different options that could please any foodie. The arrangement of the restaurant allowed for adequate social distancing and still had a warm, holiday feel. The wait staff was attentive yet due to city curfews, I felt my party was rushed. Overall it was a great place for an intimate date night, fun with friends or business.

Easily one of the best dining experiences I’ve had anywhere in the world. David (our server) accommodated our meal and essentially created our own tasting course by staggering which dishes should come out when. Overall, I recommend this establishment for a meal or drinks for any occasion.

Had the amazing night in Peppervine for my friend's birthday dinner!! The food, desert and mocktail are super + the best customer service. What make this restaurant stand up for its five stars review is their wine list, they carry the Tokaj deserr wine from Hungary which other restaurants in Charlotte don't have!! Can't wait to return soon.

Absolute must try. We had the chef's menu and as a wine collector was skeptical of the pairing choices but the in house sommelier did an amazing job. The food, service and ambiance have made Peppervine and must try. I have a feeling this place will become a Charlotte favorite of ours and many others. Will be back again soon.
