its not 1989! – Always a good time and I've had the shrimp in the last 2 weeks and it wasn't rubbery. I guess things change in 20 years. Great crab cakes and it's nice to have Chef Geoff back from his stint at Lulu's! It seems both places benefited from that union. I'm glad this institution is still going strong.
Excellent Food and Experience – We have been to Pewter Rose approximately 10 times over the past year. We have almost always had excellent service, and at least good service. However, we enjoy Pewter Rose because the food is absolutely outstanding. Whatever we order is extraordinary for Charlotte. If you know food and enjoy fine food, this is a place you must try - it will become one of your favorites. If you prefer chain restaurants with heavy, preserved, fried and poor-quality food, this isn't a place for you. If you enjoy fresh foods with a thoughtful combination of flavors, nothing you order will disappoint. This restaurant is probably best enjoyed by those experienced in fine dining with a discerning palate - you won't believe the prices for the quality of the dishes. This is an outstanding restaurant for those wanting EXCELLENT food. Bohemian environment is good for romantic dinner.
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Do not go unless you like to pay high prices for rubbery shrimp.
I ate there in 1989 and found this restaurant to be the worst of the worst.
No other comments!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful dining experience – My husband and I went here for our 1st anniversary dinner. This was our first visit and we were very happy with our choice of venue. I had the Lemongoat Salad and Chicken Crepes. Both were great. My husband had the Caesar Salad and the Pork Roulade. The Casesar Salad was a little disappointing, but the Pork Roulade more than made up for it. We also ordered the Quesadilla as an appetizer. It was fantastic. Overall, the service was great and the food was excellent. Dining outside was also a pleasant experience. We would definitely recommend Pewter Rose Bistro to others.
Unimpressed – Our girls' lunch out ventured to the re-opened Pewter Rose and I was very disappointed. Service was slow and all the waitstaff seemed genuinely annoyed that we were there. The meal began with a wonderful hummus appetizer, but went downhill from there. My chicken quesadillas were quite boring and actually contained a piece of chicken bone. Food temperatures were lukewarm and drink refills were not at all prompt.
Below expectations... – The Pewter Rose has always had a great reputation for food and atmosphere. What happened? The atmosphere is still nice and romantic at night, but the food was lacking in taste and selection. The staff was not very friendly and appeared compelled to be a bit on the snobby side than to serve with a pleasant and graceful demeanor. This restaurant appears to be in dire need of a manager/owner who can lift morale and standards of food and service.
Perennial South End favorite has an eclectic menu and homespun atmosphere. – The Scene
This South End gem is composed of mellow surroundings, including a high-ceilinged dining area filled with a mixture of accessories. The lounge/bar offers cozy seating in the way of overstuffed sofas and chairs, and an inviting patio provides a view of the city's skyline. Servers are professional though not formal.
Eclectic American cuisine and a famously popular Sunday brunch have created an institution. The menu changes twice annually; desserts vary weekly. Baked brie, a deliciously sweet and fruity combination highlighted by an almond and bourbon topping makes for a decadent starter, while the exotic salad with arugula, pepper-coated goat cheese, honey-lavender dressing, toasted pumpkin seeds and sweet potato frites is a spectacular marriage of contrasts. The grouper, overpowered by a heavy lobster cream sauce, is less successful. Better is the sauteed organic pork chop--tender, juicy and bursting with flavor. The restaurant's signature creme brulee is a sweet, silky creation.
good all around – I have been in to Pewter Rose for lunch, brunch, and dinner, and had excellent food and service each time. The service at brunch is sometimes a bit slow and jumbled but when the food comes it is worth the wait. Dinner is above average and prices are fair and lunch is very good. The decor alone is worth checking out very funky and ecclectic. Check it out you,ll be happy you did.
Still love this place - quirky, friendly, yum – Been a fairly regular customer here since I moved to Charlotte from NYC over 10 years ago. I have always had pleasant service (it can be slow at times but I've never been into dine-n-dash). Food has almost always been well above the Charlotte average, and the few times I did have a problem it was corrected immediately - and wasn't charged for it! On the negative, the parking can be difficult and the valets can be a bit curt. Would I recomend it to a business associate or friend? Yes... but only if I get to go with them! lol :)
If you read 1 review, read this one! – This place was horrible... We saw the 9.4 rating -which is an absolute fluke- on citysearch and decided to try it. 4 of us ate and everything we had was badly seasoned, cooked incorrectly, and disgusting to look at. The chef, it they have one, must have been trained at Mc Donalds! The service was terrible, the waiter did not listen to a thing we said, he forgot appetizers, and served entrees all at different times. He also gave us attitude if we asked for anything. I give it a one for the atmosphere, but the truth is it was just boho eclectic, nothing special. When the bill came, for those prices, we could have gone to McIntosh across the street and had a wonderful meal. Save yourself and your money... Don't eat here!
