We enjoyed the excellent food and quiet atmoshere. Our friends found the oysters on the half shell to be perfectly prepared. We felt the same way about our shrimp cocktail. Meals were excellent. 3 of us had the filet mignonette perfectly prepared and the 4th had the scallops which she enjoyed. Dessert was outstanding...Appel strudel cheesecakes! We will be back.

I had the Park Salad which is always excellent and the scallops which were quite good. I was a little disappointed that the menu has been changed and the French Dip sandwich is no longer available. The service was excellent as it has always been when I go there.

Have read many varied reviews so wasn't sure what to expect. WAs here over a year ago and was underwhelmed but decided to try it again. Service was wonderful. Our server was very attentive but not intrusive, something I appreciate. My husband and I had the prime rib. Cooked to perfection and while I personally would have preferred a bit more salt ( easy to remedy), it was wonderful. Also had a small salad which was quite good. I tasted my friend's salmon and loved it. Will be going back. Another plus is that the noise level is reasonable. We sat in a booth and could actually hear each other - another huge plus for this place.

My only complaint is that we waited 25 minutes past our Open Table-confirmed lunch reservation time to be seated...We finally gave up and had to insist on sitting at the bar -- insist because the hostess was for some reason resistant to that idea.
After waiting about 20 minutes, with no sign of a clearing table, we told the hostess that we'd just sit at the bar. She demurred and said she'd circle the restaurant again to assess the table situation. She came back after a couple minutes to say in 5-10 minutes, she expected something to open up. We then said "NO really, it's okay -- we'll just sit at the bar." She hemmed and hawed and finally I had to insist that we sit at the freaking bar.
What is the deal here? Why would this restaurant show multiple 15 minute openings for tables-for-two all around our requested time (12.30pm) when they were basically fully booked? Or, if they accepted our reservation on Open Table, why would they let walk-ins take ALL the seats before we got there (on time)?

Once you get over those shenanigans, the food is quite good.

Beautiful spot for Sunday brunch. Busy but not crowded, great buzz but not distractingly noisy (perhaps due to the high back banquette booths). Surprisingly though the service wasn’t top notch. Very friendly hostess, seated promptly, drink and food orders placed in a reasonable amount of time but the food came out sporadically and I wasn’t terribly impressed with recommended avocado toast. All that said though, I would certainly go back and recommend it to others. Overall a nice brunch; perhaps the kitchen staff was not in sync this particular Sunday morning.

I thought the brunch menu was limited and my eggs Benedict was very plain. Just paired with some plain hash browns it was disappointing for the price. We have enjoyed dinner there, but I would not recommend it for brunch. I expected more for a $45 bill for two which only included eggs, a entree salad and iced tea. Seems pricey and mediocre.

I can't say enough about our meal at SPG. The food and staff were amazing. My friend had the halibut and I had the scallops - both were fabulous and we finished the night with two housemade desserts. It was also 1/2 price rose bottle night which was a pleasant surprise. The vibe, decor, and energy of the place was exactly what my friend and I were looking for. It was the perfect girls night. I wish it hadn't have been raining or we could have sat on the beautiful patio. We will be back next back Sunday to check out the delicious brunch our server told us about.

Service was good, salmon was delicious; however, the overall experience was disappointing. Waitstaff brought the wrong salad for two of us and unfortunately it was the blandest Caesar salad imaginable. Food somewhat ordinary, didn’t justify price.

I would give it three and a half stars if that was an option. Our service was excellent-5 stars for service , the food was okay. We started with the brussel sprouts and they were awful. We were expecting roasted And they were tough and steamed. We get brussels at a lot of places and these are definitely the worst I’ve had in Charlotte. We ordered the chicken and the filet for our main entree. My husband said the filet was good, but nothing special. My chicken was good, but definitely nothing I’d return for. Lastly the truffle fries didn’t taste of truffle much at all, but just excessively greasy fries.
The blueberry cobbler was pretty good for dessert. Our bill was 125 for all of this and a couple drinks, so not horrible, but not worth the cost for the taste of the food. The ambiance is stuffy and too quiet. Overall, for all the good restaurant in Charlotte, I doubt we would return.

Though it was not very busy that night, we got a great booth that allows for conversation that does not disturb others. I sort of have a pet peeve about loud restaurants . The service was excellent and everyone liked their food. The lobster bites were great. We got halibut, salmon and a fillet. All were perfectly cooked. I ordered the Park salad with goat cheese and it was excellent. I would recommend.

I took five kids here ages 15-20 for my daughters birthday. We were appropriately dressed and were also appropriately quiet patrons as this is an upscale venue. I made the reservation for 6:00 on a Tuesday night and the place was mostly empty when we arrived, which was fine. Food was very good and service was expedient, however I felt like we were treated like we shouldn’t be there. I can’t quite describe it. I will give this restaurant another try at some point, but I was put off by the feeling of not being valued customers due to the younger ages my co-diners. I still left a 20% tip, however it would have been 30% had I felt like we were truly welcome there.
