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

Started with the Double Dip, good choice for sharing. My wife had the Crab Cakes, no fillers, all crab. I had the Thai Salad, very well done, I ordered it medium rare and the meat was spot on. I hope they never get rid of the Banana Pie...WOW...it is enough for two. The wine list is very done, hint go... More

Went there on our 26th wedding anniversary and once again this restaurant did not disappoint. Nothing is frozen, they do not even have freezers. We got the couples dinner for $72.00 which included an appetizer a two salads two main courses a bottle of wine and a dessert. A great value and fantastic flavor. Service is second to none... They...

Whenever we can't make up our minds, we go to 131 main. NEVER a disappointment. Great food, service, drink, and atmosphere. We hit the one on Huntersville.

Contemporary American with nice decor and great food. Plenty of healthy options on the menu for us who need to watch our waistline. I had the trout with quinoa. The fish perfectly served, the quinoa tastefully done. My friends Ahi Tuna salad was great as well. Pork Chops, steaks can be found on the menu as well.

Excellent menu. My husband ordered a filet with grilled shrimp, and he was very pleased. I had two Maryland crab cakes that were delicious. As you enter the restaurant, the kitchen is open, and you are immediately seduced by delectable aromas. You can stand and watch the chefs if you walk in without a reservation. Tiffany was our server, and... More

I was taken out for a business dinner here. They gave us a nice large table for our meeting and the sound levels were such that we could have a great discussion without having to shout !

This place is on the top of my list for fresh and delicious dinners. I had a large salad with rasberry dressing and grilled slamon on top and it was one of the best salads I've ever had. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is friendly and efficient. Oh and try a dirty martini it is super tasty!!
