Came to 131 because it was convenient and then pleased to learn that it was restaurant week in Charlotte. This place gives regular size portions even for restaurant week! And they had a special on wine that blew us away. We got a bottle of Stags Leap for $50 which would cost $28 in the wine store. Value on top... More

Had lunch at 131 Main. While there is no children's menu, we were able to order a grilled cheese sandwich and fruit cup for the toddler. The atmosphere is upscale. The food - a smokey burger and a roast beef sandwich were very good. Enough separation of booths and tables that the toddler didn't annoy those seated nearby. Would visit... More

All facets of our dinner were excellent, from the initial greeting to our leaving the parking lot. The service and dinner were superb, and we'll no doubt return on our next visit to Charlotte.

I eat here all the time, and on Fathers Day dinner they goofed but took great care of me. Brought my entree out, then 10 minutes later my salad. After my entree got cold, I took the salad and turned away the pork chops. I was grumpy, and in no way did I fell like dealing with pork chips while... More

My fiance and I went here for dinner on the day we got engaged. I got steak and he got ribs and we loved them both. We also got fries for our sides. Unfortunately, I felt like the selection of sides was lacking, as I wouldn't normally choose fries at a nice occasion. The waitress was nice and attentive.

My wife and I have been to 131 Main a few times in the past, but recently have made it a regular monthly routine. The service and food are consistently outstanding. My surprising menu item of choice is the meatloaf. Not being a meatloaf fan, I did try something different one visit and now it has become my favorite meal... More

We visited 131 Main in Cornelius/Huntersville (basically north Charlotte suburbs) in May. It was a busy Saturday night, and we saw almost every kind of guest from couples, to teenagers going to prom, to families there for commencement from one of the local colleges. As the makeup of the patrons reflected, this restaurant will appeal to a broad range of... More

Went here on the recommendation of a local resident. She told us we had to try the grilled artichoke, which we did, and she was right; it was amazing! We called ahead and was told we would have a 30 min wait which would have been fine but they sat us almost immediately. The portions were good, the food hot... More
