Eat here!

Tasty elevated dining in a land of pizza, burgers and chicken fingers. If you don't want frozen, reheated food, eat here. It's a taste of civilization.

The food at Charlotte Bistro is probably the best in town. Without reservation we quickly got a table on a Saturday evening at 8 PM, even though then the setting up and first service was a bit slow. But at some point we were told they had a large group and our meals will be coming soon, and then it... More

Looks can be deceiving. From the outside, we thought the Charlotte Hotel did not look like much, but what a treasure we found when we had dinner at the Charlotte Bistro! The food was incredible, both delicious and artfully prepared. It was truly a gourmet feast. I had the kale salad and the risotto, and both were excellent! I highly... More

Great tasting and well displayed food in an open hotel Bar and restaurant. Excellent service and nice young energetic couple that operates/owns the hotel.Stay there and enjoy but watch the steps inside and out. We are going back

I'm not sure exactly how to rank this restaurant. It was definitely the best dinner restaurant in Groveland and was very pleasant. However, the food was pleasant but I would certainly not drive out of my way to eat here.

We were staying down the road and the Blackberry Bed and Breakfast (amazing!) and this place was recommended for dinner. We ended up here twice for dinner (the other night we ate in the park-what a let down). We had quite a few tapas, a cocktail and I had some wine. It is very boutique-y food, and very yummy. We...

Lovely setting and friendly staff. On the higher end in terms of price but the food is excellent quality.
