If you don't mind some noise Stoke might please you. Their Queen's Feast menu offered a very good sampling of the kind of food they create. The seafood tasted fresh and other components were well prepared and well seasoned. The only disappoint for our table of 4 were some undercooked donut holes. We were brought a second batch that were better. Our server, Kayla, was friendly and went out of her way to make sure we were happy. It was a fun night out.

During Queens Feast. Portions were smaller on the special menu ( we were told this before hand). Felt a little rushed by the waitress, but the food was very good and a good value during the Feast. Good signature drinks, but was “out of rosemary” so this made some drinks unavailable. Nice decor and open kitchen. Booth seating is a little worn, so you sink down too far. Restaurant called the day of to advise of road closures in the area ( very nice touch). I would definitely return for the regular menu.

The Pretzel Brioche and Deviled Eggs were outstanding! Highly recommend the Beef Short Rib. Complimentary Valet Parking. Relaxed environment.

This was our first dinner at Stoke. We were seated immediately, reception was very nice, Restaurant Week menu items delicious and we loved the overall ambiance, especially kitchen centered in the dining area. Unfortunately our table was next to a service hallway with a draft and everyone at our table was freezing. We asked for another table unfortunately there were none available. Still one of the best meals we've enjoyed in a long time and they have an excellent wine list as well.

Our appetizer and dessert were delicious. However, the main entree we ordered trout and it was horrible. They serve it with the skin, barely looks cooked and tasted horrible.

Hats off to Chef Tim, the menu is filled with locally sourced produce and meats prepared with care. Our entire party of 12 was satisfied beyond expectations by quality of great food, good service and general ambience. Get Stoked !!!

Went during restaurant week. The deviled eggs were good, the charcuterie board was nothing special. The short rib was perfectly cooked but not very flavorful and the trout had too much lemon on it. The donut holes were average, but the chocolate bread pudding was great. The restaurant is loud as it's open to the hotel's lobby which also made it quite cold on this winter evening. Good service and friendly staff.

Food was great, only issue was that it was cold outside and every time the door open, the entire restaurant got a blast of cold air through it. Would definitely go again, despite this, though.

Wait time was ridiculous. The kitchen space and staff is too small to handle an influx of customers and should not participate in events such as restaurant week where an influx of diners tends to happen.

The food was truly excellent and so was our server. It was our first time dining there and she helped us with some recommendations that were all spot on - both for cocktails and food. We did the 3 course option which was a good value and gave us the chance to try small versions of an appetizer, entree and dessert. The pretzel brioche appetizer and donut hole dessert are musts. The atmosphere was great and it was just a really enjoyable experience overall.

Because this restaurant is attached to a hotel, we experienced some smoke from others who were in and out of the hotel. I am super sensitive to cigarette smoke so this was bothersome to me. The noise level was a bit high for this same reason. The food was good, but not excellent in my opinion. Not sure we would chose this restaurant over another the next time.

Nest value and taste in Charlotte and as far as hotel resto is concerned, the best ever. There are many good resto in downtown Charlotte but Stoke with a simple menu offers incredible flavor and tremendous value. And service is always Sunnyside up.

The front door opening constantly at check out time made it cold and I comfortable. Server was so polite. Food was good but nothing special. Wish there was more variety on menu.

This place was amazing. My husband and I decided this would be a good place for our one year wedding anniversary and we sure were not disappointed. All of the staff were incredibly welcoming and our waiter was so knowledgeable and helpful with drink and food decisions. The main dishes are a good sized portion so we split one of those and got a couple companions for the sides and it was perfect. If you’re thinking about an appetizer, GET THE CAROLINA SHRIMP; best shrimp dish we have ever had.
Overall, it was an amazing choice and we hope to make the trip to Charlotte again soon to go back to Stoke!!

We had a great dinner here after an early Saturday Hornets game. We liked that they had a kids menu. Atmosphere wasn’t great considering the price of the food but the food itself was very good. It feels like a hotel lobby restaurant (which it is). Service was fine but could have been a little more attentive on a few occasions. I would definitely consider going back for the food.

First off, drinks at the bar are amazing! We started there and then went to our table. The aperole spritz and Spanish G&T were great. YOU NEED THE PRETZEL BRIOCHE! Servers were super friendly and knowledgeable. The stoke burger and clam/oyster linguine will not disappoint. Get a side of the charred broccoli and do not skip the hazelnut chocolate mousse tort at the end! We will definitely return with friends in stow!

We love Stoke and the staff as well. The food is amazing and the service was top notch. Carson is definitely an asset to your team. She made sure everyone was well taken care of, continually checked on us, was very prompt and always did it with a smile and excellent customer service skills. This was just what we needed to make Erin’s birthday amazing. Thank you!!

Enjoyed our Thanksgiving meal, but felt the price was high for what was on the fixed menu. The service was pretty good but certainly did not wow us. Ambiance of the restaurant was nice. I probably would not go again for holiday meal.
