    Fantastic spot in downtown Charlotte. Don't let the hotel restaurant status fool you, Stoke is worthy of a brick and mortar to stand on it's own. The pork shank is to die for, the burrata was perfectly fresh, and the short rib pappardelle was melt-in-your mouth perfection.

    Menu is pretty limited, but food is very good. Server was great but service was generally slow. Took us almost 40 minutes to get the main courses to the table. Pork shank and short rib Pappardelle were excellent.

    I would have enjoyed my experience except my food came out cold twice. I order the steak medium rare and the steak did not come out hot. The steak and the sauce were cold. Even when it was sent back out it was still room temperature. I was not able to eat it. The staff did all the right things and were apologetic. They did not charge me for the food. I enjoyed the appetizers and the rest of my family enjoyed their meals.

    We were at the host station for over 15 minutes with no assistance. At that point we went into the bar and was told if we wanted to dine there, to expect well over an hour for our food. We had a reservation at 5:45 pm. Pretty pathetic.

    We got to the restaurant at 5:30. Took 10 mins to be seated. We put our order in for drinks, 1 appetizer, 2 burgers,1 salad, and shrimp and grits. We got our drinks, then someone brought us more drinks we did not order. 30 mins after we ordered we got the appetizer. The waitress dropped off the bill at our table( still had not gotten our food) by 7:10 we still had not gotten out food. We had a concert we had to get to. So we paid for our drinks. Another table that was there had the same experience. It was awful!!!

    Overall, we had a wonderful experience at Stoke last night The hostess was friendly and our waitresses were SO kind (Maria was particularly personable), and while the food did take quite a while to come out, it tasted great (special shoutout to that brioche with the three whipped butters - LIFE CHANGING). Loved their heavy focus on farm-to-table cooking, too, and the vibe of the space is a perfect balance of casual and elevated. Definitely a great spot to have a nice meal in uptown!

    It was rough at Stoke tonight. I know the staff would agree with me on that one. It wasn’t all bad…here’s the breakdown of what I loved, liked, and what could’ve gone better: LOVED *complimentary valet parking was super nice *gorgeous open kitchen, tables & vibe in Stoke *the famous 1lb. Donut *drool* LIKED *my server was overwhelmed with a packed house and only one other server to help her that I saw; yet she remained helpful, kind and didn’t seem flustered at all… she was a superstar given her bad circumstances (lack of help, lots of guests, one bartender, slow kitchen - eek) *cocktails - pretty and strong! *mac & cheese was a creamy Gouda with a crunchy top - I would order again for sure. The smoked Gouda flavor was a perfect complement to many of the other wood fire oven roasted menu items. COULD HAVE GONE BETTER *service was exceedingly slow (snails pace) 7:00pm reservation and left at 10:30pm. An hour passed between ordering appetizers and receiving them. Thirty-five minutes passed between ordering a cocktail and receiving it. I totally get why… they were definitely understaffed for the amount of crowd that showed up. As I mentioned before though, they were really doing their best so we were not upset at all! Just glad I didn’t have anywhere to be afterwards *Burrata appetizer was yuck… the pine nuts in the pesto overpowered the basil and herbs… and overall the dish lacked salt. *our 100 gardens salad we all (4 friends) agreed was one of the worst restaurant salads we’ve ever had because it was boring, underdressed, and way over hyped in the menu description which made it sound delightfully farm to table *ribeye over cooked and over sauced think I would potentially give it another try in the future because it’s a gorgeous restaurant and I really liked the convivial atmosphere. It lends itself to meeting new friends and mingling with people staying in the hotel that you might not get to meet otherwise.

    This restaurant is beautiful. Great decor and the staff was very friendly. When we arrived the restaurant was fairly empty so we were seated right away and it wasn’t long after we sat down when our waitress Rachel came to take our drink order and go over the menu with us . The highlight of our night was meeting another Yelp Elite Jordan. We talked about traveling and food until her guest arrived. Rachel explained the menu in detail so we could make the best choice for our entrees. For how expensive the entrees were they should have come with at least one side. I really enjoyed sitting close to the open kitchen and watching them cook and plate the food. The drink I had was really good with unique taste. I love spicy drinks and I would give it a 6 on the spice level. I can say that I really enjoyed the food it was seasoned well and was fresh. I would definitely come back.

    10/10 Service was prompt. Ambience was nice. Straightforward menu Asked my server Rachel for a recommendation and recommended the sticky pork shank and it was phenomenal. Enjoyed my cocktail the flying fizz which is gin and proseccoo based with butterfly pea flower tea that makes it purple I think. Made very well good balance. Would definitely order 2 or 3. I would recommend! Also complimentary valet parking was a nice touch especially since the location is in Uptown Charlotte

    Absolutely horrible experience and I will not be back. One of my previous favorites in CLT. I arrived with a Friday night reservation, waited 10 mins to even be greeted. Finally was told 30+ minute wait to be SEATED even with a res. Over half the tables open. Could’ve just sat us and let us sit with drinks until a server could pick up service. Then, the chefs were banging around bowls loudly/aggressively and a chef actually dropped one over the open kitchen. I went to grab the bowl to give it back to the chef and jokingly said, I’ll give you the bowl back if you can get us some service. He was SO rude back to me and I walked out. No manager on duty to give feedback to. 0/10 service.

    $32 for 6 scallops and gravy - no veggies or carb. We were at a conference which ended at 9. Our reservation vas as soon as we could arrive and the service was rushed because we were the last seating. It would be good is they had flexibility for Kate hours.

    The bar and restaurant were really busy and they seemed a little short staffed, but our food came out quick and was delicious, as always. Waitress apologized for any inconvenience but we made it out in plenty of time for our Broadway show. This is one of my favorite places - the food is always good and consistent. Never had a bad night.

    Stoke was a great place for a before the symphony cocktail (or two) and a light supper. The only downside was that my hamburger was too well done. I had asked for medium and it came out very well done. But it is better than a RAW.

    Outstanding interesting food in a cool setting. Deviled eggs, salad, and Brussels sprouts were excellent. Dry packed scallops were good but not great and expensive for only 4. Chocolate tort for dessert finished things off nicely. Flower and bramble cocktail was great, but Muddy Water one was not.

    I was very disappointed in the restaurant overall even though our food and service was good. I made a reservation a week in advance for my daughter’s birthday. When we got there they asked who’s birthday it was and we said hers. They said happy birthday. Then said they didn’t have a table ready yet. We went to the bar and had a drink while we waited. After our reservation time had come and gone we went back and apparently there was still no table. They sat us in the bar instead where we had already been. It was a long wait before we saw our server. There was never any mention of her birthday again and we certainly didn’t feel special being stuck in the back room. I was already disappointed that the restaurant was in a hotel lobby but the rest was a disappointment as well. Our server was sweet and our food decent but that’s all I can say positive

    We were guests at the hotel and had reservations for Stoke. We received a complimentary app from the hotel (great perk!) Service was phenomenal- were seated right away, greeted promptly, and serviced quickly. The food was above average but not tops. But overall, the ambience and experience was excellent. Thanks Stoke!

    Food was good, kitchen operation is a hot mess. Took us 1.5 hours to get our food after we were seated. Had a concert to go to and basically had to run to the venue to make it. Couldn’t even finish our meals. Totally unacceptable. If they are busy, I’d go elsewhere.
