    The wine was cheap and there was only ONE sake at a Japanese place! The food was sub-par at best. And the service was mediocre.

    Trying Warmack for the first time and while overall experience was good not something I will go back to. Food taste and quality was average but service was excellent. We had to take one plate back but staff was gracious enough to accept it and take it off the bill and provide recommendations.

    The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, if a tad loud. We had to wait quite a while for our table even though we had reservations and service was slow at times due to the business. Almost all the food was delicious, especially the sushi! Some dishes lacked value for the amount of food or protein included. Beer menu needs to expand. Overall it was good but could improve.

    Cute vibe. Wasn’t busy at all at dinner service. Server was very nice. We were served the wrong sushi roll and they corrected it promptly but noticed we were still charged for both (didn’t look at until after we left). Felt poor in taste…

    The food was good but drinks were very overpriced. Service was decent until the end where we felt a little rushed to leave, even though nobody was waiting on a table. Also, the people who come here are just weird?? I’m not sure why. Very little energy here.

    Warmack is a nice walk-to destination for folks in Elizabeth and Plaza Midwood. Expect a casual environment, including an outdoor area and friendly servers. The fish was fresh tasting and the dishes were interesting and good.

    Overall, we loved the Warmack & will be back. Entrees were pricey but lived up to the hype. The OG sushi burrito & the whole fried snapper were incredible. We were only disappointed by the beer menu (no IPA crafts), and more so the sake menu (only a canned sake). Cool spot.

    The vibe was energetic and the ambience was nice but a little loud at times (all those hard surfaces).The service was good as was the food, albeit a little overpriced. The biggest disappointment of the evening was being unable to get my first three red wine selections (this seems to be an issue with several restaurants lately).

    The service and drinks were on point! The food was….well…meh. I am not used to needing to add salt/pepper to my meals. Both of our meals needed seasoning. We did not bring our leftovers home. So unfortunately the bland food made this dining experience less favorable.

    looking for a aesthetically pleasing restaurant turned lounge?! The Warmsck is the place to go. I had an absolutely wonderful experience there with great service, quality of food/cocktails and the vibe in itself. My favorites from the menu was the spring rolls , pork dumplings and the wargarita cocktail. I also tried the gyudon bowl which was super delicious as well. When I go back I would like to try their terminator roll as that is the number 1 best seller on their menu. George (the manager) , Mimi (waitress) & Keith (mixologist) left a great impression on me and even more of a shoutout to my special cocktail Keith made me. This restaurant is one of relaxation and laughter no matter who you are but with great food and even better cocktails. I WOULD definitely go back and would recommend you all check them out too. It’s a great place for date night , solo vibes and even girls night out. Live DJ on Friday and Saturday from 10pm to close! Great indoor/covered outdoor seating. Reservation preferred but not necessary.

    My husband and I had a dinner reservation and arrived on time. Our table wasn’t quite ready so the manager offered to comp us a drink at the bar while we waited, which was a nice gesture. After a short wait, we were seated and placed an order for an appetizer to share. We got the tenderloin skewer and it was delicious. For main dishes, we ordered the poke bowl and the salmon and Brussels sprouts bowl, both of which were great. The Brussels sprouts were some of the best I’ve ever had - they melted in your mouth. We will definitely be back to try some of the other dishes.

    The challenges of finding late night dining was resolved with our choosing the Warmack. We were able to make reservations for 11pm (late arrival flight). We did not want simple fast food nor finger food or pizza. Rather, we wanted a dining experience with the hopes of packing in some dancing before retiring to our hotel. Afterall, we were only to be in Charlotte for the weekend -- thus, our desire to pack-in as much in 48 hours as possible! By starting with the Warmack, we checked-off two birds with one visit. The food offerings were awesome (Asian fusion), as was the house music piping through the speakers. The clientele all were cosmopolitan chic. The wait staff and front of house staff were all on point and very helpful and engaging.

    Will start by saying that food was pretty good , well presented and visually appealing. The place itself is nicely setup and decorated to a modern yet casual style. The bit of a miss was in service. Though people were mostly friendly, it felt like the restaurant had just opened last week even though its been months. First miss was we had a 7:45 reservation and got there by 7:51 and they had sat somebody so we had to sit at the bar. They did apologize and said it was a mistake. At the bar we sat next to a couple that had left but their dirty dishware sat right next to us for about 15 minutes. Eventually got cleaned up but not after I mentioned it. There were 2 bartenders, one was handling mostly drinks and the other food but they were not well coordinated. We ordered food and it was about 10 minutes after that we got to put our drink order. Drinks were good though though they can probably use less tequila, vodka type drinks and do more asian type drinks. I saw only one drink that had Sake on it. The food also came out pretty fast even with the restaurant mostly full at the time. Would visit again despite needing fine-tuning with service.

    We were delighted and surprised by our wonderful Asian-inspired dinner. Perfect for sharing are the wonton tacos, gyoza, bao buns and edame. The pork belly bowl was outstanding! We requested a table outside and liked having lots of room out there. We'll be back!

    Awful. Just don’t go. Waitress asked for drink order. Never wrote it down. Came back TWICE to clarify them. We left cause once they came they were awful. Went to aging Tree instead. More money but totally worth it. This place SUCKED. Was empty on a Friday at 630p. That says a lot.
