I was disappointed in The Lantern. The food was tasty but way overpriced for the quality and selection offered. I guess it's the high-end restaurant in Chapel Hill.

Atmosphere (in the bar area) is dark but lively. The bartenders and servers are polite and did an excellent job. I thought that the cocktails could be improved.

Friendly service, lovely atmosphere, delicious meal! I especially loved the spring rolls and the dumplings.

I tried it based on reviews. I found that all dishes needed seasoning. The salt and pepper shrimp did not live up to expectations. It just had none of the flavor associated with this dish. The flash fried greens the shrimp was served on were just dry and crumbly. The dumpling sauce was not very flavorful and the dumpling filling could have used more ginger. In all it was disappointing. The service was good

Lantern has been a reliable but innovative restaurant for some years now. The menu always offers surprises and the service and food are superb. The bar is a favorite. It feels like you are doing something illicit, but of course not...too bad. It can get crowded there so pick your time.
