Their brunch is tasty! Their service isn't too bad either. Great selections and coffee! Try their french toast!

On a winter weather weekend, we visited Charlotte. The trip was terrific and after a leisurely Sunday morning we were looking for a nice place for brunch. We ended up at The Dandelion Market. Great atmosphere and even better food, drinks & service! The spicy Bloody Mary was spiced "just right" and that was from the bar, not even the... More

This place had amazing tapas and a wide variety of selection. This is equaled by it's beer selection with a ton of local brews. The atmosphere is certainly not like a sports bar or pub as most folks were in relatively nice dress and only two smaller tvs downstairs (we didn't go upstairs). Nevertheless, a fun place to spend the... More

Awesome brunch menu with a great variety and unique atmosphere! It's hard to find places that have a Bloody Mary bar, so that was what originally had us going there. They also have brunch on Saturday's too, which is uncommon. The staff was very friendly, quick food service, and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend the french toast sticks! We... More

Right when you are walking up to this place, it's like a hole in the wall. I love the feel and the way the restaurant is set up. Immediately we were greeted by a host and seated. The server came out soon after to take our orders. I wanted to try a soup since it was so cold outside. I... More

Second visit to the Dandelion Market, only because I don't live in Charlotte. Love the flavors the kitchen infuses into the food, and the dishes are small so you can order several to try. They also have great microbrews, so I will always try to visit when I'm in town!

Enjoyed this small plate restaurant a great deal. Our group of eight tried about 15 different dishes. We especially liked the crab cake and scallops. Service was good. Very charming atmosphere

(Lunch) The food was great - green salads, tall sandwiches, flavorful soups. The service was friendly but slow. We had a large group, but they work on a more limited lunch menu during the day, so a meal that should take only 30-45 minutes during a workday lasted over an hour. It was bit frustrating, so I wouldn't return for... More

Had a warm up with business colleagues, great spot. Loved the beers on tap. Guinness was our big item. Recommend this cool tavern environment.
