Located at 408 South Main Street in the historic section of downtown Davidson this unpretentious querky little eclectic European-American Bistro is Davidson's secret jewel. Laid back and cozy-comfortable, this tiny place with a small but precious menu serves up carefully prepared food, beer and wine at the reasonable prices. The food quality and service is impeccable and consistent and dining on the porch and patio is always cool and relaxing. Family owned since 2006 this "hole in the wall" is Davidson shabby-chic. .Daily specials and new menu items appear on the chalkboard wall. Make your reservation today !!!

    First time meal and we'll return-- the chicken kabobs were very good, the meat one a bit chewy but good flavor. The tahini and hummus starter was great. it was a bit loud due to a band next door, but not overpowering. Nice staff

    Nice dinner out. Bourbon shrimp and stuffed mushrooms for appetizers--highly recommend. Pork chop thick and juicy. Probably our favorite entree of the night. Also has stuffed flounder and salmon. Both also very good. Peanut butter pie for dessert. Just the right amount of sweet for a final course. The wait staff were very attentive and also quite entertaining. It was almost a dinner with a show. 😎😎

    Food was delicious. The server at the beginning was great. The person who stepped in as a substitute was too much, came by too often and lingered, and just made us a bit uncomfortable.

    Absolutely fantastic spot. It is obvious a lot of pride and love goes into each dish. The lamb fell right off the bone and the tuna was perfectly done. The mashed potatoes were the best part. The pie is also incredible. We’re new to the area so the staff helped educate us on some Davidson history and had a great conversation with them. This is definitely a local hometown place where you know you’re taken care of when you walk in. For sure going back!

    Excellent local Mediterranean place a few blocks down Main Street from Davidson college, have done takeout, outdoor patio seating in the fall and indoor in the winter. Small but yummy Menu and nice family staff. Not cheap but nit super expensive either and worth it. Good wine and beer selection. Indoor dining room small/cozy so definitely recommend reservations. Strip mall free parking.

    Amazing meal in a great couples or group atmosphere. Def. ask for the house recommendations. My wife and I both changed our initial pick (Pork Chops / Crab Cakes) for the server recommendations (Salmon and Mixed Grill). COULD NOT BE HAPPIER with the recommendations. The Lentil Soup is the best my wife and I have tasted (worth mentioning I've been in restaurant management for nearly 15 years). If you are looking for an off the beaten path culinary experience - make that place Restaurant X! Tremendous job to you Chef and your entire team.

    My fiancée and I went to dinner only to bump into an old friend dining in the restaurant. We exchanged pleasantries and she told the waiter we had just gotten engaged. And he comped our banofee pie which was outstanding! As was the service and the food. I would highly recommend restaurant x to your next visit out in the Davidson area!! You won’t be disappointed!

    Intimate and family-owned, this restaurant can compete with the bests any day. (I actually cancelled a rez at Kindred to come here.) Talk about delicious food! We started with the poutine and lentil soup. (Best lentil soup ever.) For our entrees, shepherds pie and crab-stuffed flounder. For dessert, peanut butter pie, my husband’s favorite. Will absolutely return!
