The food was absolutely delicious (as were the cocktails). Our wait staff was great, very friendly and attentive. Our only complaint was that there was a loud party on the first level and the music was nearly deafening. Not sure if anything could’ve been done but it definitely marred our experience. If our party of 6 (who hadn’t seen each other in awhile and were hoping to talk and catch up) had been informed when we arrived that there was a noisy party being held, we would’ve appreciated the honesty and gone elsewhere — but would’ve gone back another time.

There was a party that reserved the bottom portion of the restaurant. As a result, service was slow. My waitress was very friendly and kept us notified of the long wait of food and drinks. However, as a first time customer it was disappointing to wait 20mins for a drink an hour for chicken sliders and corn. However, once the food finally arrived it was good. We spoke with the manager and she did provide a discount on the bill and an apology.

We enjoyed our foulest trip to 204 North following Hamilton. There was also a good group of Panther’s fans coming in post-game. The food was very well prepared. I loved the farm to table aspect. The 3 for $35 menu is a nice option too.

It was a full house. Our server was very polite but she was running all over the place trying to keep up. They definitely didn’t have enough servers for how busy it was. The food was delicious; however, my steak came out before my salad.

We’ve been several times for brunch and always enjoyed it. Something was off today - also service, slow to bring food and food was off. I hope this was a one-off event rather than a trend.

The food and atmosphere are exemplary. The offerings are varied so everyone can find something to enjoy. Small but excellent wine list. Our server, Emma, provided exceptional service throughout the meal. We tried many locations during our stay in Charlotte and this was one of our favorites.

204 North Kitchen is a great find. It's located between 2 pretty hopping bars and has that NYC feel to it. The menu was great but the service was even better. You won't be disappointed.

The ‘Hamilton’ crowd had apparently just left so the restaurant was pretty empty. The main disappointment is that our food was cold. I did indicate in my reservation that it was a special occasion (husbands birthday) and they didn’t acknowledge it at all. Not sure if they get that message but i thought they would have...?

We took my dad out for his birthday dinner. The Mahi dish was amazing, seasonal drinks were well thought out and executed, Creme Brûlée was to die for, and service was wonderful. Only complaint was the hostess told us that there was a reservation following ours so we had until 6:30 for our table. We had plenty of time, but when celebrating a birthday, the last thing we wanted was to feel rushed. Overall, a great dining experience and a wonderful birthday celebration.

Would not go back and would not recommend. We had a problem with our appetizer and no one worked hard to ever correct the situation. For a place considered "farm to table" I would have expected more fresh options. Everything seemed breaded and overcooked vegetables. Never saw a manager to have the order corrected. Ended up just enjoying my wine (limited choices that were good) and leaving most of the food on my plate.

The restaurant was extremely noisy and the chairs were terribly uncomfortable. We enjoyed the cocktails, food and close location to the theater. If we went back, it would be for Hapoy Hour in the bar instead of a dinner out with friends, as it was difficult to converse.

While this was a "grown up" restaurant, my 13 yr old daughter and I found it to be a perfect place for our post-Hamilton girls' night. We shared the salmon, since neither of us are big eaters, as well as the seasonal pumpkin cheesecake. It was fun, casual, trendy place for us to round out our night! Will definitely be backwash the husband for a date night!

We had a 615 reservation. Table wasn’t ready. We waited for an hour. Trying to get to a 730 concert. There was a table for 8 empty and being held for supposedly a 7 reservation. When we left at 815 the table for 8 was still open. On the flip side the manager comped our dinners and the food and service were great as usual. I’m writing this bc it was the principle of it making us wait for an hour when a table was available

Orlando gave us good service and advise, except salad came out after meal arrived. The suggested pork shoulder was very dry and additional sauce was needed. Otherwise, apps and dinner were great. We had bar drinks, beer, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, mahi and filet, followed by creme brûlée.

The food was probably the best we had on our trip, and the service could not have been more friendly or speedy. The meatloaf and salmon was amazingly good, and the cheesecake and brownie were perfect ways to end the meal. Oh, and I took a picture of the cocktail menu because they were THAT good and inventive.

Overall the restaurant has potential. Service was a major let down (I'm being polite). We waited over 20 minutes for the first round of drinks. The restaurant / bar was not crowded. The group finished half the appetizers before the remaining appetizers showed up. We ordered 2nd round of drinks and after 20 more minutes, I called the manager over to check on the drinks. We received the drinks & manager said they were complimentary. The bill was paid 50/50 using 2 credit cards. Both cards were charged twice?

The restaurant needs to deal with the service issues, otherwise it will not succeed. If the restaurant was short staffed on Saturday night - we should have been advised. We would have understood.

I hope the restaurant addresses the problems with service. Our waitress was very pleasant, had many great suggestions and seemed on her game that night. I'm not sure what happened - but I hope we never experience the problems again.

Food was excellent.
