Fell off our radar, but no longer

First of all, Tues. is a great day to go. Half off wines. Not sure the Opus One at $450 or the Sliver Oak Alexander Valley at $165 fits this category but others are worth it. Gazpacho is excellent, a bit spicey but good. Chicken Tortilla is great. Crab Cake Salad is interesting with much to... read more

Good food, never a disappointment and we've been eating here 2-3 times a year since they opened in 2006. Martinis with bleu cheese olives are some of the best in Charlotte...and big too!. The dark atmosphere is not for everyone but we love it. Feels very cozy. I don't like BBQ sauce and/or ribs as a rule but their ribs... More

We found the southern Charlotte location on TripAdvisor and asked the concierge at our hotel to help us with reservations. They indicated no reservations were available but first-come, first-served seating was available. We were glad we went there was plenty of space. We went on a Saturday night in mid June. Happened to catch their Prime Rib special. It was... More

Great service by two servers. Several starter choices. We had deviled eggs. Chicken sandwich was above average. Shoestring French fries made it hard to stop eating. Hubby had a local craft brew while I enjoyed a Bloody Mary. Cost for lunch was about $50. More than we'd usually pay but it was Father's Day.

Love the martinis! Wine list is pretty good, as well. Bar area can be pretty busy, but a lively atmosphere is always fun. The menu could use some updating, though. We've been going here for over 10 years and just a few tweaks would help. Salads are consistently fresh and tasty. The grilled salmon is very good. The sides lack... More

I guess I'm missing something about this place. It's been recommended to me and I've eaten there twice, but am just not impressed. It's OK, but nothing special. During my last visit I ate alone at the bar (business trip) and found it to be noisy and a little dirty--messy unclean bar. I ordered the salmon which was not cooked... More

I've been here a few times and am always happy with my experience. My husband ordered the trout and it was Devine! I stepped out of my box and got the pork chop. I had no idea it would be 8 inches high! Although very good not my favorite here. Half price bottles of wine on this night was an... More

Sadly, some previous reviews had negative comments about 131. I don't share their same opinion. It was a phenomenal experience. We visited the original, flagship location on Rea Road. Please note that there is also one in downtown Charlotte at a different location. Our food was outstanding & our service was superb. My husband ordered the marinaded ribeye & I... More
