    We really enjoyed our time at the Wine Loft. Service was really good. It would have been nice for the music to start earlier. It didn’t begin until 9:00 and our reservation window was over at 8:15. The bathrooms could use some attention. Overall experience was good. We will return in the future.

    I really wanted to love this place, but for a self-proclaimed wine bar, I was expecting better wine options. The food was fine… nothing to wow us, and something missing. When we came in the lights were very bright but the musician eventually came in and turned the lights down, so that improved the setting. Our individual plates were dirty so we just ate off the serving plates, which was fine. The bartenders were nice but not very attentive, chatting in the corner, eating flaming hot cheetos. Overall value… not worth it :/

    I made the mistake of making a dinner reservation here with my husband, kids and one of their friends. Totally not the best mom moment. :) It's not a family restaurant but that was my mistake. However, the staff took it in stride and we had good food and I was able to enjoy some nice wine for Mother's Day. This is more of a place to meet friends, have a date, etc. I look forward to going again, just only with friends or my husband.

    Ventured into The Wine Loft for a late light dinner with great wine and wasn't dissappointed. TWL has recently updated its food and wine menus and I discovered new favorites for both. TWL's service is always exemplary and their live entertainment last night was fantastic. TWL remains my 'Go To' spot for great wine and tasty food.

    I feel as if one star is too generous. I chose The Wine Loft for a birthday dinner. We were seated and sat for 15 minutes while others were waited on but not us. We ended up leaving and going across the street to The Eagle. Highly recommend The Eagle!

    Went with my boyfriend on a Friday night at 6pm. We were the only people dinning inside the restaurant. Thought the place was going to be a bust. Flat bread was okay but let’s be honest I came for the wine. Wine menu was great. Lots of delicious options. Had a great time. The waitress was super friendly too.

    The Wine loft is a very nice place to visit and would definitely recommend it, The only thing I would improve on is when you come they the back door ( where the parking is ) they make you walk to the front of the restaurant only to go back and be seating where you originally came in ( near the back door ). Nothing major, great place to take a date.

    This was my second time visiting the wine loft. My girlfriend and I experienced our first date there and wanted to revisit due to the occasion. We made a reservation for 2 bar seats and we were able to be seated on time. My only issue on this occasion is that our server/bartender was not as attentive as he should have been. Two examples: 1. My water remained empty for longer than I can remember and there was no effort to check on our party. 2. I wanted to order a drink off of the menu and was unable to due to our party not being tended to. We ended up flagging down a server to get our check since we hadn't been tended to for some time.

    The Wine Loft continues to consistently be one of my favorite wine bars in Charlotte! It literally never disappoints - whether I am coming to relax after a long day of work, sit in and listen to some live music, have date night, or get dressed up with my girls; Wine Loft always gives the same classy vibes. You can never go wrong with the wine flight - try three small sample glasses, and then enjoy a full glass of your favorite. Their charcuterie board is a MUST.
