Able to get in and out in time for a show is the real trick. Make reservations and tell them you are going to a show.
Our reservation was at 7:30 Two guests ordered steaks and they only had one steak left on a Thursday night. Wine was medium priced. Deviled eggs were very good.
Absolutely incredible meal. Food was delicious, well thought out and highly executed. Flavors were unique and inspiring.
Wait staff was attentive and thorough. Cocktails were delicious. I would recommend the restaurant not just for a special occasion, but for anytime you want to go out. I often stop in and sit at the bar for a burger before an event downtown.
The food is good and the wait staff is great but twice in a row now we have had to wait 30 minutes past our reservations. This time they said the “silverware wasn’t ready”. Very unacceptable.
The food has never disappointed at the Asbury! The wine selection and pairings are also excellent. Chef Mike is always introducing new seasonal farm to fork opportunities, to include excellent fish options as well. My scallops were done to perfection and my husband's pork cheeks were lovely.
Great team effort. One of our very favorite restaurants!
Dinner was excellent. Our server, Justin, was great. Our dessert, a white chocolate panna cotta, was exceptional.
Always a lovely dining experience! We go every time my parents are in town (I highly suggest you try the deviled eggs!).
My mom & I recently had a pre-show meal here and everything was wonderful. Our waiter, Justin, was fantastic and the food (both presentation & taste) was phenomenal. Such a creative menu, it was hard to decide because I wanted to try so much of it. Loved it, will definitely be back!
The Brussels sprouts were outstanding. Would definitely order them again.
Dinner w/ friends before concert @ Belk Theater..our first visit, and will NOT be our last! It checked all the boxes for us. Warm & cozy space, quiet enough to actually enjoy dinner chat. Outstanding attention to detail service (Justin, if I remember correctly) love that they offer smaller versions of the specials and entrees. Scallops were sweet & delicious, pork cheeks..yummy! Don’t miss MawMaws Biscuits! Well done Asbury, thanks for the excellent dining experience.
It's been far too long since we've been back to Asbury but it won't be as long before our next visit. We had a great experience overall. My warm kale salad with the trout was excellent. My friends enjoyed the swordfish and steamed cabbage roll. My husband tried the burger and liked it but didn't give it five stars. The fried oysters were a bit salty also which is why I rated the food 4 (4.5 if it were an option!). Perhaps a bit more dressing on the cauliflower would be appreciated too. Again, we'll be back though. Such a lovely setting and again, great service!
Very good overall experience! Ambiance was nice and service was good! Enjoyed the deviled eggs appetizer then very much enjoyed the scallops, swordfish and scallops entrees! The cocktails were delicious as were the desserts (carrot cake and creme brûlée) Would highly recommend!
Stayed at the hotel that evening and dined at the Asbury prior to a show at Belk Theatre. Although the restaurant is small, the food and tastes were large! Tried several small plates with cocktails, the Mac and cheese and pork belly were delicious! Will definitely dine there again! Thanks for making a special occasion top notch!
Felt rushed, had to ask repeatedly for beverages to be refilled. Not my favorite experience. Food was good.
Excellent food from appetizer to entre to dessert.
We especially enjoyed the retro bar menu and will be back to try more. The bean appetizer was tasty although would have like a little more moisture. The fennel sale was lightly dressed, fresh and generous to share but we found few pieces of fennel. The sauage with rigatoni was perfection and the fruits di mare was fresh and sauce delicious. We share a delicious mocha carmel dessert.
The restaurant was very lovely. Dinner was amazing. The server could have been a little more explanatory towards the dishes we got. I like to hear about the food before I eat it. We went last year around this time and our server then explained every dish that came to our table, it was wonderful.
Teamed it with a stay at the Dunhill Hotel which was equally impressive.
The meal was good. Not great, but good. The place was dead silent to an awkward level. Could hear everyone’s conversation. The service was great!
Outstanding dining experience! Loved everything about this restaurant - service, creative culinary “farm to table” options, great wine selections. We plan to make this restaurant our new “date night” spot. Thanks to Jenny and Frank for a memorable night.
The restaurant was very average. The service was just ok. And the food was ok at best.
So glad we finally made it for brunch!! The Asbury has been on our list for hot spots in Charlotte. My husband ordered the chicken & biscuits - best we've both ever had! I had chicken & waffles and the breading on the chicken was the best savory flavor with the sweet syrup! BYO Bloody Mary Bar and great morning cocktail choices!
Our waiter was in love with himself. The restaurant had only one other (although large) table going that evening, but even so the waiter disappeared for long periods. The food was very appealing and flavorful, although the risotto was not warm when it arrived.
It's too bad. It's a good location, small enough to feel right for good conversation and the menu and food is great (if brought out promptly). But everyone in my party noticed the poor service.
We had difficulty with the menu because there were so many wonderful things to offer. We shared the biscuits with bacon jam, the deviled eggs and a warm kale salad, all delicious. The server gave excellent suggestions and stellar friendly service. Pork Cheeks and Scallops were dreamy. I am a convert and will definitely return for a repeat performance.
Good menu, Server was knowledgeable, Good wine list, reasonably priced
Great experience and exceptional service. Loved it.
Very enjoyable meal and service. Server was very nice. Food served promptly.
waiter did not engage us in conversation to give dinner warm feeling, but service was fair (had to wait for drinks)
My girlfriend and I are Chicago foodies. The scene here in Charlotte has been disappointing. This is one of the three places that we have been astonished with the food. The pork cheek was textured properly with the glaze. SO GOOD!
Business lunch with a client whose offices are downtown I was able to drive in, park and enjoy a great taking healthy meal in a nice atmosphere. Noise level was not an issue, service was impeccable and will repeat as necessary for me to be in ‘uptown’ Charlotte.
The restaurant is very nice. Staff extremely personable. The fried chicken and buscuit was delicious. Very juicy. It had a pimento cheese gravy on it!! In the middle of Uptown so can go walk around after. Had a build your own bloody Mary bar and mimosas. One if the top brunch spots!!
Atmosphere was nice. Food kind of expensive but overall great experience for couples
Fantastic meal, if anything over service so excellent all around experience!
Food at Asbury is always amazing. Staff is knowledgeable about food and drink options. Will continue to come back to Asbury for an awesome night out.
Perfect location to have a meal before an event at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Food was pretty good and the service was great.
We were sadly given wrong info that we would not be able to have a brunch menu for New Years Day. Poor choice on the part of the chef—we were seated around 4 other tables, all of whom were under the brunch menu expectation as well—1 table got up & left. When I did the initial search on Open Table for NYDay brunch, the Asbury came up & I viewed the menu before making the reservation. We were very disappointed in our options and the portions were terrible. My husband’s liver/onion risotto was maybe 1/2 cup portion and certainly smaller than our appetizer. My Mac & cheese was undercooked & not hot. Our friends’ salads were ok but not up to their expectations either., & one was too spicy which was not in the menu description. The service—our waitress was kind but did not serve or clear the table appropriately. Attire was sloppy and a T-shirt was way too casual for this type of dining experience. The “manager” came to talk to us about the no brunch disappointment and apologized, but did not offer any type of compensation. A real disappointment for our New Year’s Day brunch!
We enjoyed a five-course meal with wine pairings on New Year’s Eve and, initially, we were a little skeptical of the menu. Everything sounded delicious, but it seemed maybe too simple. We were pleasantly surprised by the simple but elegant presentations and the tastes were amazing!!!!! Our waiter paired wines excellently with each course. Definitely a worthwhile find and totally worth the price! If ever in Charlotte again, we would definitely consider dining at the Asbury again.
We had dinner on New Year's Eve and enjoyed it very much. The chef is very creative, and the quality of food was excellent.
Asbury is both elegant and humble. The food was/is exquisitely prepared, and elegantly presented in a deliberately understated manner. I reserved a table during the holidays as a treat for the family partly for its location, in uptown Charlotte, partly because it is situated in a hotel designated as part of Historic Trust Preservation. Reserving sight unseen, and without prior recommendations or research, I was not disappointed. I was, in fact, amazed. So was my entire party.
Asbury, as host, you made me radiate in the eyes of my guests. Thank you!
We had an early dinner after a day of travel. The restaurant was empty but for the 2 of us, even if full it would be an intimate dining experience. We had a bit of everything; biscuits, bacon Jam, Parsnip bisque, deviled eggs, Mac-n-cheese and roasted pork belly. All was fantastic and our service was impeccable.
