    I ordered a NY strip done medium and it was probably worst steak I've had in recent memory. There was no flavor to it and it was burnt/charred causing me not finish it. I was glad I got a side of Mac and cheese or else it would have been a liquid dinner only. A bit disappointing for such a nice looking establishment.

    Stoke has a cool modern vibe without the annoyingly loud noise level in some other restaurants, although it was not busy when we were there (Saturday night after Thanksgiving). The food portions were good - generous but not too much - with good variety of selections. Our group of 4 shared two small plates as appetizers, 4 mains, and one desert. All of the food was well prepared and at a good temperature when served. On the downside, they presented a short wine selection list and were told to go over it, and if we didn't find what we wanted, to then ask for the complete list of bottles. This was a waste of time and resulted in the wine being brought to the table late in the meal.

    Not the biggest fan. The time inbetween being seated and our order being taken was longer than it should’ve been. The food was ok but didn’t match the price point. It wasn’t busy so not sure why the slower service and the host was also acting as a waiter/food runner so maybe they were short staffed

    The food was excellent!!! We had the fish and short ribs for dinner. A salad and deviled eggs for the starter! All were fantastic! The cocktails were super too! Our server was Rio( ?) and he was outstanding…always there when we needed something. We were too full to try dessert but they all sounded delicious!

    The menu selection was absolutely incredible. From fresh local farm produce to local meats and freshly caught fish, it was nearly impossible to decide on a main course from the menu. Everything we tasted was divine, including the cocktails. Flower in the Bramble was fantastic- a very well balanced cocktail with tart and sweet notes with a great vodka selection from Social House. The coastal catch was Amber Jack, perfectly cooked, with excellent garnish. Waitstaff was kind and fun, making us feel welcomed and appreciated. A hotel manager even stopped by to ask how everything was. I would highly recommend Stoke for any occasion or event. The kitchen space is beautiful, and is a great foodie destination for anyone who appreciates innovative dining.

    It was very loud, made louder by several large tables of convention-goers. This restaurant is in a Marriott hotel that caters to convention-goers - so expect loud. The food was good, but it was very slow in coming.

    We arrived for our 6:30pm reservation. We were told by the host that they only had two chefs and were running about 30 mins behind. We were then instructed to sit at the bar (if we'd like) and to find the host in 30 mins so we could be properly seated. (How does that work? So not only is our reservation not being honored but then you're absolved of any proper customer service by shooing us over to the bar?) We did sit at the bar and order a few drinks which were good. However, we were advised by the patrons around us that they had ordered their food 45 mins ago and still hadn't received it. We were pressed for time and didn't want to risk not receiving our food and making it to the concert in time. Due to the amount of concert goers, all the surrounding restaurants were booked as well, so we ended up buying over-priced Italian sausages at the venue. I am a hospitality veteran and fully aware of the difficulties when there are call-outs. However, the handling of the call outs was simply unacceptable. No drink voucher for inconvenience, not even an escort over to the bar. We were discarded and then told to come and find the host after 30 mins. Horrible experience and very disappointing considering this is supposedly the flagship Marriott.

    The food was really good. Everyone ordered something different and loved their meal. Service was very slow! we didn’t totally mind because we were enjoying drinks and chatting but it was clear they were understaffed when the manager was running food to tables. I ordered a cocktail that wasn’t one of their pre made cocktails and it took over 30 mins to receive. It also took over 30 mins to get our check after we asked for it. Nice place but don’t suggest it if you have somewhere to go after dinner. I would probably go back and sit at the bar and just get drinks and apps next time

    The brussels sprouts were very unique and flavorful. The fingerling potatoes were good but not great. I have had better macaroni and cheese, but it wasn't bad. My husband loved the pork loin. It was a very nice atmosphere, and we enjoyed it.

    Came here for Restaurant Week Aug 2022; food was really good. Service also was goo, nice layout. We actually sat up in the bar because it was less crowded . The doughnut that they have on the dessert menu is to DIE for!!!! I will say that the worst thing about this place is finding it. It's in the Marriott hotel but u don't have to get to it that way. There's a corporate building you can come in through instead. It I had just known it was the Marriott Restaurant, that would have made it much easier to find!

    We went during restaurant week, and there was a convention in town so was a bit loud. We had to wait a long time for everything. Apps (which were not cooked) took about 40 mins and after we had been sitting for an hour they told us it would probably be another 30 mins for dinner because the kitchen was behind. We understand everyone is understaffed, but the restaurant wasn’t that busy. They had quite a few empty tables. The food was pretty good though once we got it.

    Queens feast menu is not a value at all (it also isn’t accurate on the queen’s feast website, you get a lot less than the menu implies), the fried chicken was terrible & undercooked (there was blood but my boyfriend didn’t enjoy the flavor so we didn’t bother to send it back for another batch) & the “herbed” fries were totally devoid of any seasoning, so they should just call them french fries. It wasn’t terrible but I definitely won’t be back.

    The hotel where Stoke is located had a rap DJ that was so loud we had to yell and it hurt our ears. Even the staff was annoyed and said many guests had left the restaurant due to the loud music. The manager was not apologetic but our server was. The heirloom tomato salad and donut were both delicious. I had the recommended fried chicken which was good but it was not over the top. Our table wobbled which was annoying. I would not spend my money here when there are so many great choices in Charlotte.

    We were so happy to find this place. It is very nice with the kitchen in the middle of the restaurant. We were able to see the food being prepared. The ambience is really cool. The decor is modern and eclectic. What I wanted to order was out, so I had to go with my second choice. I had the wagyu burger and the macaroni and cheese. My friend ordered the shrimp and grits and asparagus. Everything was amazing. The food it take a little longer than expected, but the service by the waitress and an additional waiter was more than sufficient!

    Fantastic spot in downtown Charlotte. Don't let the hotel restaurant status fool you, Stoke is worthy of a brick and mortar to stand on it's own. The pork shank is to die for, the burrata was perfectly fresh, and the short rib pappardelle was melt-in-your mouth perfection.

    I would have enjoyed my experience except my food came out cold twice. I order the steak medium rare and the steak did not come out hot. The steak and the sauce were cold. Even when it was sent back out it was still room temperature. I was not able to eat it. The staff did all the right things and were apologetic. They did not charge me for the food. I enjoyed the appetizers and the rest of my family enjoyed their meals.
