    Great service and experience. We arrived 30 minutes early from our reservation and were accompanied by Staff. Greeting was very nice. Great location if you don’t want to go downtown Charlotte. Food was delicious! Wait staff was on point!

    The meal and service was great, but they were out of several main courses. I’m sure it had to do with it being Mothers Day.

    Extremely disappointed with my experience. I decided to take my mother here to celebrate Mother’s Day after hearing good things of their sister restaurants. Initially it was seeming to be a good experience. We told our server of our dietary restrictions (no pork) due to our religious beliefs. We ordered appetizers with no issue but when it came to our entree, our server failed to tell us that one of the items had pork sausage in it. The manager dropped off our food and assured us that it abided with our dietary restrictions, which was a flat out lie. After a few bites into our meal, we noticed the sausage and to our surprise our server told us he forgot to mention that was included. This completely ruined our experience. The only solution offered was to replace the overpriced dish with another overpriced dish while my mother ate her meal. No offer to comp our meal. Would not recommend at all. Plenty of other great restaurants in the area.

    What a disaster. Decided to make reservations for Mothers Day because they had a special menu and there were some interesting new dishes. Had to pay up front. Get a call a couple of days before we were to go and they said we would order off the menu but some of those dishes would still be offered. It was too late to get reservations somewhere else and I had already payed. We get there and not only are none of the special dishes offered but they were out of several of the usual dishes on the menu. I have been there a lot of times in the past but I’m not very inclined to go back any time soon. It was a very disappointing experience and management did nothing to try to make up for it.

    We ordered branzino and waitress out hold but somehow it came out almost 20 minutes before our other guests means. Needed to replace fish. Once manager got involved the replacement dish came albeit after everyone else was finished with their main courses This was a rare miss in service from all our other rare roots dinners.

    We had reservations at 7 to celebrate a promotion. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks, 30 before we were asked about appetizers. Overall the food was okay but not worth price when compared to similar restaurants.

    I made this reservation to celebrate a friend’s birthday with 4 others. We expected to have a nice relaxing evening. However, it was SO NOISY that we could hardly hear the person sitting next to us, let alone at the other end of the table. For this reason, we will not return. On the plus side, the food was well prepared, but definitely overpriced, and our waitress, Tiffany, was friendly and efficient.

    Silly loud. Hard to have a conversation. Even my two teenagers noticed how loud it was. Food was decent. Sides asparagus was undercooked mashed potatoes …hard to detect any butter cream or anything. Just bland. My ribeye came in more or less a large rimmed bowl….Combined with a dull knife was more than difficult to cut. With other steak restaurants in the area no need to return

    This place is still good, but has gone down hill a bit. The drinks were well poured and good tasting. We had 2 filets and an order of the short ribs. The filets were OK, definitely not center cut, both seemed like ends and had some tough spots. The short rib was good overall. We had the potato au gratin side and they were good but the portion was hardly enough for one person. The Brussels were soggy and didn’t have much flavor and were enough for 5 people. This used to be one of my favorite places but won’t go out of the way to eat here again!
