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 !!!

Loved this place. Ordered the lentil soup and mixed grill platter. Incredible chicken, sausage, and beef. The rice was so good. One of the only middle eastern restaurants in the CLT area!! The staff was so attentive and kind!

The food and service was very good but we were shocked the restaurant does not serve coffee or hot tea which we wanted to go with our dessert. They also don’t serve mixed drinks.

Best place I have found near Huntersville for Mediterranean food. Hummus was smooth and creamy. Rice was nice but a bit too much clove flavor. Chicken was excellent and so was the garlic sauce. Will definitely be back.

The lamb shank was very good the Mediterranean vegetable dish was average. If you are looking for ambience and atmosphere for a date this isn't the place. Small inside music loud more like a bistro/bar vibe. Service was good but when I declined desert I didn't want the server at my table with the portable visa machine collecting the tab. Perhaps they could have said I'll come back when you're ready for the bill to let me decide. For the overall feel of the place I think their prices are bit too high.

Fantastic food, stuffed flounder and lamb shank were outstanding. Don’t remember the name of the dessert, but it had fingernail crust, toffee, bananas, raspberry sauce and whipped cream - might be the best dessert I’ve ever had! Only downside is no cocktails (beer and wine)

We're sad to learn of your "Bad Experience"!! Our staff, who happened to be us, the owners, always make sure to comfort our patrons and make them feel at home during their visit! Now as for our prices, we're not sure what you mean by "Overpriced"?! Could you please at least be fair and share with everyone what you had for dinner and how much you paid for it?! We always listen to our clients and implement improvements whenever their feedback is constructive!

We decided to try Restaurant X because we were looking for somewhere we hadn't dined before that boasted "fine dining". An added bonus: we had a $10 VIP coupon from the "Attractions" coupon book, which was truly a coincidence in making our decision to dine here. The service was impeccable, the ambience was nice for a much-needed date night for my husband and I. The food choices were interesting and varied - we found out the chefs are Lebanese and all the dishes are authentic. My husband's stuffed flounder was amazing - and I don't typically order fish, but I loved it! The green beans/carrots served with it were also delicious, along with the mashed potatoes. Beef and chicken kabobs were flavorful and tender - the sauce for dipping was also unique and delicious. The Mediterranean rice was very tender and flavorful, as well. Best of all -- the chocolate peanut butter pie! Absolutely decadent! And a HUGE piece - plenty big enough for us to share and still take some home. We truly enjoyed the entire experience at Restaurant X and will recommend it to others. We'll be back!

Great freshly made food with fantastic ingredients. I had the pasta and meatballs - marinara sauce was delicious and unlike a typical sauce (a must try). My wife had the tuna - super fresh and perfectly cooked. My daughter had the signature shepherds pie and we all ended up “ sharing” - very good! To top off the meal, we met the chef (the owner’s mom) when she came out to thank us for dining at Restaurant X; a very nice way to end the evening. This place needs to be your list when you want to have a meal cooked with love and special attention!

Would come here regularly before the world ended. This was our first time back since things have opened up. Was not a disappointment. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly and very tasty. My wife had the stuffed flounder which was also very good. Thankfully, she shared some with me. Our son had the seafood trio which he also earned a merit badge for the clean plate club. Only complaint would be the beer selection was a little restricted, but my son and I both found something we like. Definite keeping Restaurant X on our rotation list.
