I fell in love with this place when I used to live up in Cville, VA, so I was thrilled to have one again when I moved to Charlotte. This location is friendly and quick, and I've been a loyal customer since then
We were brought here for a birthday celebration where a friend was treating us. I'm not a big fan of this kind of fine dining because I worked in it for a while in Charleston and it doesn't excite me, and it's very expensive. We went in before our reservation and sat at the bar, they had a few drinks which they really liked including and old fashioned and pinto Grigio. The bartender was kind enough to share the name of the wine. We sat and our server came out to greet us and give us the specials. I liked her cactus earrings. But I don't remember her name. She took our order and brought us out bread with a roasted garlic spread. The bread was house made, very good. Garlic spread could have used a little salt. Next we got a cheese plate, very good selections. I was surprised however they didn't have N.C. cheeses. Then we got our salads/soups. I had the house salad, it was good, the lettuce was fresh. Croutons were a little hard to eat but that's a "me" problem. The servers assistant offered us freshly grated parmesan and fresh ground black pepper to add to our salads/soups. The person that got the tomato soup is a pretty picky eater, he really enjoyed it and so did everyone that tried it. Three of got the Elk Chop which came with spaetzle, Cabbage with bacon and a Dijon sauce. One got the filet with fingerlings and one got the snapper special over risotto. I got the elk chop medium well and my s/o ordered it the same way. Mine came out great, his was underdone but he didn't want to complain and ruin anyone's dinner, he just only ate half of it. It was good, I think they need to bring out different knives to use because elk doesn't cut like a filet mignon, it's a little tougher because it has less fat. The pieces are so big also it is kind of awkward. I really enjoyed the rest of the plate. The spaetzle was very well done, liked the sweet and sour of the cabbage and the Dijon sauce was creamy and well balanced. There was supposed to be horseradish in the dish but I didn't really get that. But I like horseradish to bring a kick. Lastly we got two birthday desserts. One was the beignets with ice cream. The other were cute little semolina and chocolate cookies. The beignets were good, pretty light which was nice. I loved the cookies.
This restaurant is certainly a classy eatery, iron those dress shirts and pants. The rustic feel of home decor is quickly diminished by the upscale dining plating. If you enjoy wine of different varietals and age this is a heaven for you, don't forgot your checkbook however. The service is impeccable from servers to food runners to bussers. Our server, Eddie, was knowledgeable and hilarious from beginning to end. The food, the crown Jewel of the dining experience, was flawless. Our order consisted of stuffed calamari, salmon and lamb with liquid dessert of Madeira, barrel aged for 10 years! An amazing experience that you pay for.
