The food was 5 stars but it was very loud and no one smiled when serving the Chard was excellent and the fresh mackerel would melt in your mouth the house wine was way too expensive at $12.00 per glass and was only half at that. Good mix of people

RRs has a menu that, while heavy on the dairy, offers a variety of dishes that should please anyone. Their wait staff is very friendly and efficient without being a bother. Where RRs disappoints is in the dining "hall" where we were ushered, (15 mins after reservation time, but it was a holiday). We had RRs cater our wedding and... More

Our waitress, Olivia, was wonderful; she took good care of us. I had the meatloaf dish and my hubby had the Cajun pasta with chicken and shrimp. All of it was fresh and delicious! OMG!

We had a lovely dinner there, and I got a surprise. I usually go for the seafood, but decided to try their steak. We were treated to one of the best steaks I've had in Charlotte. Along with their normal impeccable service and friendly atmosphere. We went on a whim, and were truly rewarded. Will be going there more often,... More

This restaurant has been a staple in Charlotte for years, but I try to avoid going because for some strange reason they keep the lights down so low (even during brunch and lunch) that you can hardly ready the menu! When we asked if they could turn the lights up just a little bit, the manager said that they keep... More

This place is a favourite as we live closeby. Vegetarian choices are limited, but the ambience has a very romantic feel! Service is great and chefs recommendations are usually great :)
