Zeppelin was amazing. The service was outstanding and our waiter was so helpful with the amount and what to order. The environment is cozy with moderate sound that is comfortable. You cannot go wrong with the menu and drinks. We will continue to take our visiting guest to this hip Charlotte gem.

a surprise birthday dinner was planned and family flew in for the occasion. Our server Peter was awesome but if the individual(s) who set the table had only set for 4 -- the surprise would not have been ruined- they set the table for 6 which gave it away-- next time I will know to be more specific with such details.
thanks for a memorable evening

Took a minute for anyone to realize we were sat - Might have been a miscommunication as to who was taking our table. I’m in the hospitality industry, so things happen and the place was very busy. Peter was great, full of knowledge and conversation! He quickly made up for the delay in the beginning! We will be back again for another date night!

My new favorite restaurant in Charlotte! Everything was outstanding, from the Scratch Buns to the Fried chicken. And do not miss the Krispy Kreme bread pudding (get it with vanilla ice cream) I cannot wait to go back. Our server, Peter, was awesome. Ask for him when you go. Run, do not walk to this restaurant!!!

Great place for a date but not at all surprised with the food. Everybody keeps mentioning how amazing the fried chicken is. Their statement just confirms how impressionable people are.

Service, drinks, and overall looks of the place deserve a 5/5.

The food was incredible! We came here once before and loved it so had to come back. Our waitress was great but t The bar was completely backed up. It was like they only had one bartender the entire night. It took about 15 minutes for us to get one drink each time we ordered a drink. That was the only downside which is why I gave it a four star. The food and the service other than the bar was great. I’m not sure what was going on at the bar but the bartender was definitely trying his best to get every concoction out. But they definitely need more than just one bartender on a busy Saturday night. Great place overall, I definitely recommend.

I’m sorry but this is way too overpriced. I went here because it was recommended for an anniversary. Noted, my wife and I have ONE date a year where no expenses are spared, so Zeppelin we chose. We mentioned several times that it was our anniversary to no avail. No special dessert, nothing, just a $115 bill for 3 plates (carrots, gnocchi, and steak), 2 drinks, and 2 desserts. We were waiting for something, some sort of acknowledgement that we have married for 17 years and we chose this place to spend it. It was very loud and not cozy for a date at all. The food wasn’t all that good and wasn’t worth the money. Tupelo Honey, I recommend for an anniversary. Not this place. Too pricey and pretentious.

Tony and Peter took care of our group. We were there for a bday/bachelorette party so we were out to have a good time. They were great! And the food was delish.

Once explained, Zeppelin's interior take on the structure of a Zeppelin provides a trendy link to its name, though the connection to the menu's write up on Edison's time in Charlotte is more obtuse. The food selection is limited, but appetizing, and the list of beverage options impressive. The southern menu included appealing flavor twists, though the items we ordered were a bit heavy. Be forewarned that the food was also spicy, should you wish to give your taste buds a little zip.

The food is so much better at dinner. I went for the brunch thinking that it would be the same experience, but it's not. The hushpuppies bennedict is dry and not warm and the sauce on the French toast makes it soggy after you're halfway through. Go for dinner! Dinner is delicious.

Our foursome went to Zeppelin on Saturday night for an 8:45 reservation. I have to admit, we were a little surprised it wasn't still full at that point (since its right in the heart of Southend). We loved the vibe/ambiance immediately, which I would describe as inviting and eclectic. After we were served our delicious small plates, we were even more shocked that capacity wasn't overflowing. Our food was scrumptious!!! We had the steak, the yellowtail, the fried chicken, the gnocchi (oh my goodness, so good), and every dish was absolutely wonderful! Our server, Tony, was excellent. We had a great time and cannot wait to go back:-)

We had a great meal. We had a big group and ordered everything but the trout. The miss Tina and pineapple skies were excellent cocktails. The octopus and carrots were standouts but everything was delicious. Great meal! Tony was our waiter, great and funny. Music was great too and not too loud. We would go back for sure.
