    For anyone that doesn’t like seafood taste or smell on their salad don’t order the grilled broccoli salad Also the crab pasta wasn’t that great it has a distinct flavor and taste that makes it smell

    We enjoyed the 4-course prix-fixe menu. Every dish was tasty; except a roasted squash bisque was a bit dissapointment. The downtown night view was nice along with the live elegant music. Thank you for the glasses of champange to wrap up our wonderful anniversary dinner.

    Excellent service, view, interesting and tasty food, what more is there? We'll be back, next time with friends. On the night we dinned there, we loved the live music duo. Charlotte is walking distance to the 5th Avenue theatre, very nice for ticket holders looking for a nice place to dine ahead of the show.

    Beautiful dining area with exceptional city and waterfront views! The food was excellent, well presented and delicious. Would have preferred additional a salad option or two, but the only way to enjoy a salad would have been on the prix fixe menu, and that one didn't have a vegetarian option for the main entree.

    I was really looking forward to dining at Charlotte for a while. My husband and I are true foodies and sadly we were a bit disappointed by our dishes. We did the Prix Fixe dinner and weren’t really impressed. Though the roasted squash bisque was quite delightful. My octopus smelt far too fishy and was burnt. The Foie Gras was just okay I wasn’t crazy about the preparation. Unfortunately the black cod was just pretty basic. It wasn’t great and it wasn’t awful. But the Lemon Yuzu tart was divine. The ambiance and service was excellent as well as the cocktails. I love the vibe of the space and will definitely go back for drinks in the lounge but that’s about it. The presentations of the dishes were gorgeous so I guess that’s a plus.

    We had a delicious dinner at the restaurant and the views out of the restuarant were pretty on a clear winter night, but... First of all, the noise out of the lounge was deafening. So the first hour of the dining experience was less than peaceful -- even though the dining room side of the floor was almost empty. Second, the waitstaff was of mixed experience. Roles did not seem to be clearly defined. Imagine having to ask for the wine list! Third, because the bar was packed, the elapsed time to be served a cocktail was excessive. Does this restaurant want diners or is this really a bar scene? Fourth, this restaurant is expensive for the sake of expensive. We chose the fixed menu for the table (required), knowing it was the most expensive item on the menu -- but then the meal was less than exceptional. There were two choices for each course and they didn't relate to one another very well. Moreover, there was no reason the fixed menu had to be required for the full table -- it was not the case that there were so many additional courses that the table would have being taken up by one party for an excessive period of time that justified the uplift in price. Last, the wine list was a joke. It wasn't a particularly deep or noteworthy selection. One of our guests, who is a chef and restaurant owner himself, he noted that there were bottles that wholesale for $9 and were on the list priced at $100! Shameful. In all, we would not dine here again. It might be great as a cocktail scene, but it insults a fine diner with the pretension of 5-star experience.

    The view of Seattle, the cocktails and our waiter were amazing! Unfortunately, we found the meal pretty bland. We went for the Prix Fixe menu, typically this is several small courses that are plated beautifully. The portions were enormous, we could barely eat 1/2 of the food that was served.

    The food was /almost/ perfect. I hadn't heard of this restaurant until recently, but I've been wanting to try it out. We went here on a Friday night, and it was pretty slow - maybe 5-6 parties in the whole place. First off - the drinks are fantastic. They're punny, and well balanced. I want to find the bartender and make them my friend. We each ordered the prix fixe menu, so we had a lot of things to try. The octopus was cooked and grilled perfectly. The cauliflower soup was fresh tasting with great texture. I am not a "put salt on everything" person, but my wife and I were unanimous in determining that this soup needed seasoning. I'm not sure if the chef was going for an ultra-fresh taste, or they forgot, but it was just a minor issue. The shredded vegetable and crab salad had a perfect balance of citrus to go with the crab - except they forgot to put the crab in the salad. We looked for it for a while before flagging down the waiter and asking. He quickly retreated to the kitchen and brought out some bowls of crab for us, and we were saved. Main courses were perfectly cooked pork chop (sliced thin), and halibut - cooked perfectly all the way through. Desserts too, were well balanced, flavorful, and not too sweet. Overall, *pretty* good, and we had a fantastic time. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back and give it another shot.

    Daniel. Is. The. Absolute. Best. The food at this place is good, but should be better.... especially for what it's priced, but the real reason to come here is for the view, the ambience and the service. Specifically Daniel. I haven't had service like it, really ever before. Daniel took such good care of me and my clients, balancing conversation with perfect timing of the food and drinks and was just plain and simply so kind and authentic. We will definitely be coming back for Daniel, and hoping in the meantime they figure out how to take the food to the next level.

    My wife and I were on vacation and went there for breakfast on a whim. Boy were we impressed. The place was practically empty on a Monday at 10:30 AM. We got the best seat in the house with an amazing view of the city. The service was excellent. Our breakfast was fantastic. We ordered the crab omelette French toast both were really really good. The bloody Mary’s were also very tasty.!

    The venue is well decorated, but very empty and quiet, so if you’re sat next to another party that is lively, it is very hard to ignore and concentrate on your own experience. The menu is enthusiastic, but the execution is average. Wait staffs are accommodating and gives full effort. The food and ambiance is just not quite there

    Honestly one of my worst dinner experience, due to a particular bad service. To set the scene, we asked for still and sparking water at the table. The waiter had the clever idea to serve each of us with two glasses, one still and one sparkling??? In our group of 8, there was one vegetarian guest. The only proposition was to remove from the fish dish the fish, and from the meat dish the meat. Nothing alternative. When asking why they couldnt simply make a veg dish like a salad, the first answer was "Sorry it would take too long and we only have 3 chefs instead of 5 - restaurant was half empty". Then we got a second and even worse answer "We are preparing the banquet for saturday - i doubt and hope not they prepare food for saturday on wednesday ??. Finally we ordered multiple (and very expensive) wines and they found a way to blend different wines into the same glass when serving. And instead of apologizing, the waiter said "all the glasses are very confusing" No to mention that the octopus "signature dish" was completely burnt and overcooked. Honestly I have no idea what happened, it felt like a surreal experience
