    This was a very disappointing visit for us. The restaurant was very busy so we did not want to complain. Although we probably should have considering the price of the food. Our steaks were tough, the billionaire potato was lukewarm at best, and our mushrooms were cold. Service was good but I’m not sure we will go back here. We also had brunch and breakfast here. We wanted pizza for brunch but the oven was broken. Then we went back this morning for a latte and the espresso machine wasn’t working. Too many things are broken for such a pricey place. Very disappointing.

    Good cocktails and a nice wine list, but the food was terrible. Everything was severely overpriced for the quality of food. More of a place to be seen than a place to enjoy good food.

    The place and ambiance is nice but a bit cramped. The food was okay not great. The server seemed annoyed with our questions and the fact that we were not spending $200 ons bottle of wine. Honestly, wouldn’t go back.

    Deans is hands down the best restaurant in Charlotte. Service is always top notch and the food comes out quick but the servers space it to where you can finish each thing. Omar was our server and he was great. We have came here a couple times and will be back. I had the lobster rigatoni and there was alot of lobster in it. Shrimp cocktail was huge and the meatballs and bread were savory. We also had the NY strip and the Yukon mashed potato’s. 10/10

    I went specifically for the Tomahawk and was told once we sat down to order that they were out as they were changing the menu. I wish this was something that was brought up when they called to confirm the reservation. I might have chose to go to another restaurant. I am pleased they offered a few free things to compensate. The waitress was very nice. I just think the most expensive dish on the menu should have been announced was off the menu prior to us getting there.

    Good place for a date or nice occasion. We ate there for brunch on Sunday I ordered chicken picatatta seemed like it was pre-cooked and reheated because it was falling apart and somewhat dry taste was fair. App we got was The avocado toast it was on some limp bread that was too charred and bitter please this dish needs to be redone was not good. Best thing was the tiramisu. Drinks were strong done well. I’d like to try it again for dinner and get a steak

    Best restaurant my husband and I have been to in Charlotte after living her for 4 years now. The service was impeccable, the drinks were delicious and food was served with perfect timing. Our server was a sommelier in training and made excellent wine pairing recommendations. Pricey but worth it for a special night out.

    Other than the steak itself the food quality was below good steak houses like Flemings and steak 48. And given the pricing this was a bit of a disappointment

His ability to manage our experience so that we had time to chat, not rush us…always available, great suggestions… made for the perfect evening! Can’t wait to go back!

    Great meal and our waitress was fantastic. There was no host for 5+ minutes when I got there so had to wait a bit to be seated even though it wasn’t busy and I had a reservation. Regardless, the meal was great and service thereafter was great as well. Highly recommend to anyone.

    We were visiting from out of state and staying at the JW Marriott. We saved our reservation at Dean’s for our last night as it seemed as if it would be a highlight of our trip. It was our worst. Our waiter treated us disdainfully when we didn’t take his food recommendations and was bordering on rude during the entire experience. He didn’t smile or engage us at all. The food was mediocre. My salmon wasn’t cooked in the middle and the mushrooms were cold. We wouldn’t consider ever coming back here if we visit Charlotte again.

    I went back to Deans tonight, not only for the food, But especially for the service. I was there less than a week ago and my server Bruce made such an impact on me that I brought a client back to experience the same thing. The food was amazing, But Bruce made me and my friend Juanita feel like VIPs and we laughed together. If you ever are in the Charlotte area, you definitely need to come to Deans. The entire experience was nothing short of amazing!

    The whole experience was a “Mey”. Will not be going back. The food was just so so. Charging 14 dollars for as many ounces of mashed potatoes seemed a bit much with them being served Luke warm. My wife enjoyed her petite filet but not the stoic stoned faced hostess who was first not to greet us. Literally. Not an expression nor any verbiage. The noise level was far too loud to even hold normal leveled table conversation without having to lean in as not to have to yell. The final final straw for us was that no one acknowledged that we were there for our 18th anniversary. Why bother to ask on the reservation request if you’re celebrating something special and then not even mention it. It did however threaten to charge us if we were unable to appear for the time requested, and I believe that was the one thing they would be able to do correctly. This was at best a pedestrian experience trying to guise it self as top shelf. Do yourself a favor, skip this place and walk on over to the RedEye diner. My family and I had our best meal there. We all felt like we were appreciated and the food was fantastic for the price. Perhaps the Deans staff could head on over and learn a few things.

    We stayed at the JW Marriott and this is the second time we’ve eaten at Dean’s. Dean is the reason we stayed at the Marriott - Convenience. It was my birthday and Deans went out of the way to make me feel welcome and celebrated including sending a bottle of champagne up to our room. We are titanium Marriott members and all the Marriott did to recognize my birthday was give us two free bottles of water! Which we would’ve gotten anyway! The food and the people working at Dean’s Italian steakhouse are far superior than any of the other downtown Charlotte restaurants! They also have a fantastic bakery. Looking forward to our next dinner.
