Great food and Fun

The nicest thing about this restaurant is that you can have dinner downstairs and then go upstairs and dance like a rock star. The service was very good and food as well. After sometime at night they have dj upstairs which is great for fun as well.

I ordered the Tuna (seared Tuna) salad and it was cooked to perfection, just seared and warm to the touch, nice job to the chief. It was a correct portion size but I only wished there would have been more greens to the salad. Just seemed a bit short on that end. The house dressing it was served with was... More

Lunch was fantastic. Service was outstanding. The beer selection was excellent. We sat downstairs by the window and it was just loud enough to let us know we were in a busy restaurant, but still felt private enough for us to hold a nice conversation. The other patrons ranged from business people on lunch to couples on dates. This really... More

We were in Charlotte for the NCAA tournament and wanted a light dinner. Based on TA ratings we went here and it was super. We had crab avocado stack, lamb lollypops, fried green tomatoes and butternut squash risotto (well conceived with English peas and mint). Everything was very good to excellent. Drinks were good too.Liked it so much we went... More

We were seated upstairs at a corner table which made it feel quiet and secluded despite the overall boisterous atmosphere. Service was excellent and knowledgeable about the menu. It has "small plates" but actually the plates are large enough for two to share in order to have a sufficient sample of the food. They offer a list of wines by... More

When I first walked into Dandelion Market, I was very questionable about wanting to stay. The downstairs was bustling and kind of loud and seemed cramped and I just was not in the mood. However, all my friends wanted to stay so we did. I do not regret this decision at all! We were seated at a table upstairs, which... More

This is the second time we've eaten there, they have Southern breakfast comfort food. Large slices of quiche, perfectly cooked has, and a nice array of brunch cocktails. Nice atmosphere, probably not the best if you have young kids.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon. Relatively busy but the seating was quick. There are two window seats so if you are lucky enough to get one you will really feel as if you have found a cool urban hideaway. The server was fast and friendly with both drink and food orders. The have a good selection of craft beers including... More

We were looking for a place to eat but not a full dinner and our waitress at Cutters recommended Dandelion Market. Great place to go for tapas, wine, beer and cocktails. We had the Lamb, Mac & Cheese and the Prosciutto Crostini. The Mac & Cheese was very good but the star was the Prosciutto Crostini...it was incredible. We sat... More
