    The service was excellent and got right in. The appetizers were great! The pork chop unfortunately tasted like fish. It wasn’t at all what I was expected.

    It was extremely busy, to be expected on a Friday night. Server seemed to be rushing us out the door. She didn’t check on us once during the entire service. The food came out warm and was not hot. It came out within 15 minutes. The food had definitely been made ahead of time and was sitting for awhile before being served to us. I would rather wait an extra 40 minutes for my food if it’s going to be served hot. Plus the food was average at best. Way overhyped. I would not return

    The ladies at the host stand. One lady was attentive while the other two ladies loudly held personal conversations. At one point o e lady braided the other lady's hair🤯. Very unprofessional and disappointing. One of culprits had on leather looking leggings. Also, being stuck in traffic I did a preemptive call to let them know I may be a little late. One of ladies picked up the phone and before answering I had to listen to several seconds of her and someone else's conversation. I was dumbfounded. Please speak to the fron of the house ladies about always being professional. They are the first impression. Oh, and also while I waited for my table to be cleared, a family leaving voiced their displeasure at the temperature of their child's burger (I deduced the burger was very under cooked maybe). The lady was clearly agitated that her child was served under cooked food and voiced it to the ladies upon leaving. I don't know first hand of their experience since I'd just arrived, but, being right there, heard the patron voice their displeasure. Once that patron left the ladies at the hostess stand mocked her and the conversation. Again, very disappointing and unprofessional. I was right there and they thought it was funny to mock the conversation in front of us patrons who were waiting for our table. I wondered more than once last night if these ladies understood they were at their place of business.

    Their food was delicious! The food and drinks were so flavorful it was like a party in my mouth. The service was outstanding. Our server kept us updated on our courses, was very knowledgeable about their menu options and was very friendly. I recommend the mimosa called Bless Your Heart if you like blood oranges. It was a great time!

    Had to tell the server to take our stack of dirty plates on many occasions. One of us got restaurant week menu ($40)… did not receive all of the items that we were supposed to and was recommended a dessert that wasn’t on the restaurant week menu and then was charged for that dessert🤷‍♀️😳. Saw the chef and told her the food was much better than the service. Maybe they should hire her to run the restaurant! Won’t be going back.

    While we enjoyed the quality of the food and the service, we prefer a cozier, warmer space. The ambiance is very bright and cold due to all the bright lights and windows in the building. The chairs are wobbly and uncomfortable. I doubt we will go back. The Greenville ,SC, location is much warmer. But, the food was really good.

    Food was a 7/10. Our server was a 3/10. It was restaurant week and I chose the fried green tomatoes, half fried chicken, roasted brussels and baked macaroni and cheese. The brussels were cooked perfectly but had ZERO seasoning. I had to add salt. The macaroni and cheese was really good, as was the fried chicken. I chose the banana pudding for dessert and was very disappointed. It was not good at all. I also had a glass of riesling which was good. I would be willing to give them another chance.

    I came to this location and would likely never come back. Everything we ordered came out cold or lukewarm. The chicken we ordered was burnt to a crisp, one sandwich barely had a half piece of chicken in it and everything was subpar. I’ve been to other locations and been impressed, i raved about it before bringing my sister here for the holiday weekend and we were all disappointed

    Tupelo Honey is a nice little café, extremely noisy, but that’s OK. I was disappointed in the Sriracha chicken and waffles. While the waffles were wonderful and fluffy the chicken tossed in the Sriracha sauce is way overkill. Typically you would put the Sriracha on the side and allow the person to drizzle it to their liking. It was drowned and it gave heartburn to 2 in our party, are not sensitive to spicy. The classic chicken and waffles again, the waffles were wonderful and fluffy. However, the chicken needed salt. It was bland. So with all the pomp and circumstance about their fried chicken, it did come up short. Would I go downtown again to eat here? Probably not.

    Tupelo Honey - Uptown CharlotteResponded on January 12, 2023Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I will share this with our kitchen team so that these issues may be addressed. I hope you do change your mind and decide to visit us again. Thank you.

    We had such a great time at brunch! The atmosphere is bright and airy. The ONLY reason the food did not get 5 stars is because the ranch was not great and they charge $0.75 for the tiniest amount of ranch. IYKYK about ranch.

    The food was great, the service was okay, it is very slow for lunch service. I highly recommend a reservation because it was packed on a Tuesday at 12:00. It took us almost an hour and a half for lunch. They do offer to go, I would recommend it if you want to get your lunch here and have limited time.

    Had dinner here on a Sunday evening before a 7pm show at the Belk Theatre. We were seated promptly but the table we were taken to had not been wiped down so that took a few minutes. Our waiter showed up promptly and two our drink orders (two glasses of a Malbec and one glass of an Italian Cab).and we ordered an appetizer (brussel sprouts as well). The brussel sprouts arrived and we asked about our drinks. We were told that the bar was "backed up" waited a few more minutes before we were told that they only had 2 glasses of wine available (one each of the malbec and the cab). Did we want a Pinot Grigio instead? We told them no but what should arrive at the table other than a pinot grigio. The server who brought the wine was very confused and so eventually I just said that I would take it as we were starting to run close on time for the show. The other two glasses of red showed up about 5-10 minutes later. The restaurant comped our brussel sprouts for us but it was a chaotic start to the meal. Food was good and the restaurant is very convenient to the theatre.

    Overall very pleased. The check in felt a little clunky but we were seated at the bar within 15 minutes. We had actually arrived about 45 minutes early for our reservation. The food was good however what I wanted I didn’t order. My confusion and the bar tender did confirm my order but I didn’t catch it until it showed then I realized dang that’s not what I wanted but it was what I ordered. It was delicious nonetheless. I had some of my husbands chicken and waffle and it was also delicious. Just need to up the service game a bit and this place is amazing.

    Way over priced. There was absolutely nothing about this whole experience to separate it from a fast food chicken place. The over priced biscuits were dry and tasteless. The blueberry kam was good though. My basic chicken and waffles did eve come with white meat which I assumed it would be. About the most disappointing meal I have ever had.

    Service 6/10 Ran out of champagne. Served us half a glass and still charged full price for "what is left". 5 mins later a table 5 gals received ALL of their mimosas. Hmmm. Food was inconsistent; not my 1st trip. Crossing this location off my list. No desire to waste my money in the future.
