This place has a cool, unique environment. We sat upstairs which was dim lighting, brick walls & very open. The ahi tuna & lamb lollipops were both excellent. The trio dip was just okay, wouldn't order it again. The mac & cheese was pretty good. They need salt & pepper shakers on tables. Mac & cheese definitely needed seasoned. Overall,... More

Depending on when you visit the Dandelion Market your experience will vary quite dramatically. Exposed brick walls, wood floors and multiple beers on tap create an atmosphere downstairs much like an English pub. Upstairs is overflow restaurant seating that becomes a nightclub after 9PM catering to the 20-somethings. The menu is tapas style, but the portions are large. The crowd... More

My husband and I stopped by on Mothers Day. We were delighted with the food and service. He had a vegetable omelet and I had quiche. Wonderful biscuits with jam to start. Yummy! Our food was perfect and very fresh. We will be back!

Food has alwasy been consistently good. Great priced bottles of wine. Being that the interior is nothing but brick and wood, it goes get quite loud, even when the place isn't packed.

My wife and I were staying at the Marriott City Center and didn't want to eat that same same hotel food, the weather was nice and we decided to walk to Dandelion Market. This restaurant is literally right behind the Marriott and the menu and service was just great. We were able to walk right in and get a table,... More

They serve tapas style here, small plates of some very good food, we ate mostly vegetables, easy to share, with a 'lamp pop' thrown in. All was delicious, great service.

Dandelion Market in Charlotte, NC is a cool hangout spot in Uptown Charlotte but is hidden on a side street. If one did not know that Dandelion Market was a restaurant, it could easily be misinterpreted as a flower shop but as you walk past the front you can easily tell that it is in fact a place to eat....

Don't hog the greatness of Dandelion Market to yourself, bring a friend (or six) when you eat here. This is a tapas place that serves small plates to share. We had a group of four and we each ordered one plate so we could get a good variety. The mac and cheese and scallops were my favorite. They also had... More

We enjoyed a very good selection, great service, and delicious food. We particularly enjoyed the variety of types of food available for sharing in the "small plates style." However, the restaurant was very loud, so it was difficult to have a conversation while eating. I would definitely return, but I wish there was a way that the restaurant could reduce... More
