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.

I am vegan, so opted for sides. I had the kale, broccoli salad, the brussel sprouts, and a side of fries as well. Too much for me alone, the fries were shared. The Kale, broccoli salad was warm and it didn't state that on the menu, but I loved it that way. I almost didn't get it, because I assumed it was a cold salad, so I think that should be added to the menu! The brussel sprouts were delicious as well, highly reccommend those 2 dishes. 2 people ordered the shrimp and grits and said they were good, not great. It was a lovely dinner, the pinot grigio was very good as well, no bitter aftertaste at all.

Go in about once a week for the “Stoke Toast” and for various things for dinner. Always “solid.”

My wife and I went to Charlotte for our Anniversary and I made reservations for Friday night at Stokes. Didn't realize it was in a hotel when I made them. Walked in and thought it would be like a bar style so was going to leave but we decided to stay and see what they have. After looking at the menu and seen the Pork Shank I had to stay and glad I did. The food there is great, the service is great. Amazing atmosphere. You can see the cooks making your meal. I truly enjoyed myself. It is on my list of places to eat when I come back.

Went for a birthday celebration as it was recommended. Was told Smart casual dress code and arrived to patrons in shorts and jeans. Ok who cares right? Hostess was unfriendly, booth was dirty with food crumbs and table was sticky so i was off to a bad start and had a negative attitude about the place. Waitress friendly and promptly cleaned the table. Food was just ok but squash blossom appetizer was quite good. Ambiance is cafeteria like with bar esque noise levels. Upon leaving restaurante noticed the open view kitchen was a mess. Not worth the hype and wouldn’t make it a must go to if you are visiting Charlotte.

Food was very good. I had the Sticky Pork Shank, which was excellent. Amana, our waitress, was excellent. I feel the prices were a bit high for the amount of food, and it was sort of a la carte, but it was delicious.

Three of us ate dinner here last night. I had seen the post of the Capellini with pistachio pesto accompanied with scallops, shrimp (on Instagram). It met my expectations. Dined here when it first opened, and a couple times most recently for brunch. The Salmon Toast is also excellent. Sometimes crave-able! The wait staff is attentive and polite and the chef/sous-chef made the point to say “thanks for coming in!”

Deviled eggs, ravioli, and sticky pork shank were delicious. However, the pork belly pizza was a huge disappointment, the crust was soggy and the pork rinds were inedible because they were so hard. Most of the food was great but there’s a few dishes I wouldn’t order again

Don’t waste your time and money. This used to be a great spot but now it’s only open 4 days a week, so perhaps that’s an indication that other people don’t want to go here anymore either. The portions are way smaller. We ordered the beets and it was about 4 tiny bites for $10 or so. The corn bread was the same situation. Also the fish was over cooked and flavorless. Squash was a joke. It’s a side item so there should be enough to share, but there was hardly enough for one person. It was a cafeteria style side, and just salt and peppered. Nothing to write home about and a rip off for $8.
The service was good, so that’s about the only good thing I can say about this place now. We brought 4 guests and were embarrassed…we told them how good it was. “Was” being the key word. We will not be back.

Stoke is a good place for awesome food, strong drinks, and a slightly more casual environment than its peers. Good for get togethers and date nights where you want food that's just as good as 5Church, but want a business-casual environment.

This was my first time back in over a year, had many great meals/experiences in the past. Sadly, not the case last night. They seated us at a dirty table (only 3 other tables occupied when we arrived) and took over 5 minutes before the server appeared. My friends order requested no pork on the pizza she ordered which came with pork. I ordered the pork belly small plate for my appetizer which I have had there before. It came with my dinner and was 98%fat with garnish over it, nothing like what I’ve had before. Previous meals gave a true farm to table dining feel and this was very far from that. We didn’t order the donut (main reason to do) and if I were to return, it would only be to order that to go and eat at on my clean table. So disappointing especially because we took friends who had never been there and between the dirty table, service, incorrect order, and less that average food, we won’t be going back.

Service was great, food was very good. You are in the first floor of a hotel, with some elements separating you from the main entrance, but you do still know you're in the first floor of a hotel. So this is a great spot for folks staying at the Marriot, and it's a good spot overall too. I wouldn't say it's the best bang for your buck - and not that I'm talking about finding inexpensive spots, but it seemed a tad overpriced for the overall ambiance and quality of food - both were good, but not outstanding. Service was great though, our waitress was a pro and has been at Stoke for a while, and was helpful and fun to chat with when she dropped by our table. Free parking does make it a convenient spot for those not already staying at the hotel too. We could be back at some point, it was solid, but the wife and I have been trying new places every Friday after a long week and Charlotte has gained many new options the last few years, so it's a high bar to be a spot that we'll frequent.
