Just had lunch there, but the food was excellent along with the service. The ambience is great. It also has a good location near the museums.

In town for a wedding and wanted to walk to dinner from the Westin. Our server was very enthusiastic both not intrusive. We had the duck, a filet and the camel. So very glad I tried the camel, it was exquisite.

Located in the Uptown area of Charlotte. Came here for the first time and had a reservation. Instead of going straight to our table, we met at the bar. The bar was a huge disappointment. Basically, it was nearly impossible to get the bartender to make a drink or even say hello. Finally, we just asked for our table. From... More

We went here for a business lunch. the food was delicious and reasonable priced. The food portions and the service was very good. My only complaint is when the place is full it gets very loud.

We had dinner at Bernardin's on Feb. 15, 2017 before seeing Under The Streetlamp concert. It was a last minute choice in early evening. This is a great place to go for dinner out on a special night. A little on the high side but the portions match the cost. We split an appetizer and each had dinner and there... More

Booked this at random from reviews some time ago. Sadly I can't give you a lot of detail other than I remember it was a really excellent experience. Food was delicious, waitress was helpful and friendly without being overbearing. Value was ok for high quality "fine dining". We will definitely return!

Nice atmosphere. Great server. Horrible bartender with an even worse attitude. Only sell Bud products for beer selection. Drinks were par. Interesting cuisine includes duck, camel and kangaroo. Our seats were in the front window. Very nice but kinda feels like your in a fish bowl. Everyone walking on the street that knows knocks on the window to get your... More

I don't know about you, but when I see a menu with Camel and Kangaroo thereon, I know that I'm in for a treat. I opted for the kangaroo which was stellar. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and about the Charlotte area. Our group of four all had wonderfully prepared food and we'll definitely return when we're... More

Went their for duck and foie gras and both were terrible!! Owner came across very arrogant! We are of color and coming in he goes "What can I do for you?!" Are you serious?!!! We certainly didn't measure up to his litmus test of looks!!! Shame!!! Ambiance is good, Over priced for sure! My 2 cents

Thank soooma
