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.

Convenient luxury place for hotel guests or an after work drink/meal. As a local, I wouldn't choose this place for a date night though. NY Strip was amazing great!

We got to Stokes a little early but they were able to accommodate us before our actual reservation time. The ambiance in the restaurant is really nice and the overall atmosphere is casual. We had the wagyu Burger and a spicy chicken sandwich, both of which were actually very delicious. Our only major complaint was we had to wait about 45 minutes to get our food. It almost seemed like they forgot about our order, but our waitress was really lovely and attentive and would check back with us frequently.

We visited the Stoke for Valentines Day and had the pleasure of having Maria as our waitress. You can tell that Maria really enjoys providing the best dining experience to the Stoke guest. She definitely made our dining experience much more enjoyable. We were a party of 6 and Maria made sure our food came out at the same time hot and fresh. I really enjoyed the steak. It was cooked medium rare and full of flavor. The deviled eggs were delicious and the bread and butter were to die for. The cheerwine butter and the honey butter were amazing. From the bar I had the Carolina Hurricane, this drink was so good I had to order a second one. I will definitely return to the Stoke and I will definitely request to be seated in Maria's section.
