We stopped in to check things out with another couple. Cool space with a nice atmosphere. They have a very fun, very eclectic menu. We tried several small plates-we weren't overly happy with the poblano stuffed peppers but the prosciutto crostini was excellent. Decent prices and a nice change from the usual. I would go again.

Nice little place to have a few good IPA beers. The tapas food is a little small but tasty nevertheless. Ambiance is really good and I fully recommend the place.

My wife and I were looking for a nice little quiet restaurant for our anniversary. We don't like expensive pretentious places but still wanted something special. This fitted the bill perfectly as it was subtly classy with a cool vibe and great food. The ribs were amazing and the craft beer selection was also impressive. Definitely recommend.

Was there solo. At first, had trouble getting served. Finally asked a different wait person to take over my table and was fine from there. Enjoyed a craft beer sampler and a few small plates. The artichoke dip was delicious. Also loved the Carmel thing for dessert. But, it was in the pricey end if you weren't on expense account.

We were downtown exploring Charlotte. After a great carriage ride and seeing this place...we decided to swing by. From the outside it looks like a dank pub...but it's a great interior and atmosphere...so glad we walked in. Plates are sort of tapas-style...mostly dishes to be shared...so many great dishes. We did the cheese slate and a strawberry bree salad...both incredible!... More

This was a great dinner spot. Since it is small plates we ordered about two per person. The zucchini ribbons were my favorite. This is definitely a place to go with people you are comfortable sharing with. The restaurant was a little loud and dimly light, but they added to the charm of the place.

We had the opportunity to visit Dandelion Market twice during our visit to Charlotte. They have a great local craft brew selection at reasonable prices for the area. Wev also enjoyed lunch there. I ordered the sluders and my husband the Boss of Bosses (italian sandwich). Compared to the other restaurants available in the area, this by far had the... More

A group of 5 of us had a great meal at Dandelion. We each ordered 2 small plates, which was probably too much! We couldn't finish it all! Everything was good, but some standouts include the lamb lollipops, the ahi tuna, and the crostini with prosciutto, fig preserves, and goat cheese.The best part of the cheese platter was the aged...

One of the best date nights we can remember. Adrienne was an amazing server explaining the menu and telling us about her favorite steak skewers oh my!!! All of the dishes were mouth watering and the craft beer and wine were just what we asked for. It was an amazing first visit and we will return.
