Everything that was ordered was OK but disappointing compared to previous visits. Felt that all the food was way over salted and sauced. My summer favorites: gazpacho, smoked salmon pizza were off the menu and the beet salad, that I love so much, is now much more greens, and much less beets.

Second time here and food is consistently good. Had mussels, salmon, and steak and everything was cooked to perfection and seasoned well. $6 martinis that night too!

From table service to food quality, everything was superb. Ordered trout and brick chicken and both were prepared to perfection. This was my first time at the restaurant but can count on me being a regular

Love love love the hummus! I ordered the seasonal salad and didn’t care for it. Very bitter and surprisingly spicy. I wouldn’t order it again. The hummus made up though. We were able to get in and out in an hour and made our movie on time.

We don’t visit WP often but enjoy it when we do. The food is always consistently good. Our server Sarah was on top of her game which we appreciated very much. She was always present but not overbearing.

Had dinner with friends. It's a cute place and our waiter was great. The drinks were great but the food was ok. It could just be what I ordered. I had the chicken & bacon burger and thought it was a grilled chicken but it was ground chicken...I didn't love it but the fries were great. My friends got the Margherita Pizza and they loved it. The crust looked so good on it.

Service was fantastic on a busy day. Our Father's Day group included three 90 year-olds with hearing aids, one of whom is diabetic. Our request to be seated in as quiet an area as possible was conscientiously honored and orange juice delivered promptly and discretely when the wait was a bit longer than usual given the holiday crowd. Specialty items (e.g. pizzas) were excellent. Non-specialty items acceptable, e.g. salad was fresh and a generous serving but a bit bland. This was our first visit but we'll be back.

Probably the best pizza in Charlotte. The dough and tomato sauce is amazing. Seafood dishes were great as well. Staff was very pleasant.

It's been a while since we were here last. Our lunch selections were flavorful; the ravioli were filled with several cheeses and a pleasant sauce. The Rigatoni Alfredo had a WP touch to it because feta cheese was introduced. It is a rich dish, but not a heavy Alfredo sauce. The pasta itself has a thickness that made the dish a bit heavier. We had one cocktail and a glass of white wine. While our lunch was fine the restaurant was relatively empty. I will probably explore other lunch options that are more value based.

Good food. From what I could tell the menu varies over time. Good variety but I was looking for something a bit heavier like a steak. I settled for the schnitzel with potatoes and cucumber salad - all were very good. Our appetizer was the grilled octopus and it was outstanding - a larger portion of octopus would have been welcome. Other diners in our party had the trout and the burgers. Both were happy with what they got.

The waitress took a while to come to the table and when she did she realized she forgot something so she left and returned and realized she brought the wrong glass etc. She also brought the wrong meal and although she correctly split the check she ran my counterparts bill on my credit card on accident.

Incredible. The food is always amazing here but our waiter was amazing. (I cannot remember his name so sorry) but every time I come here it is great service. Their pizza and calamari are some of my favorites and that salad with the thinly sliced apples is everything. I can’t wait to go back. Not overly pricey!

My friends and I often meet here because it never disappoints. The food and service are consistently excellent and the ambience is conducive to conversation. On some occasions, it has been half price bottles of wine which is just icing on an already great cake.
