My friend and I wandered into this little gem of a restaurant for lunch this week without knowing anything about it in advance. It was crowded, so we sat at the bar, where Becky was doing an excellent job of serving everyone. My friend sampled three types of beer and loved one of the dark ales. The food was excellent....

My husband and I had brunch at Dandelion Market this past Sunday. It was very good! We did not know that we would be served complimentary biscuits with jam, which were tasty, so we started with an order of the french toast sticks. I had the migas and my husband enjoyed his ham and cheese omelette. We had plenty of... More

If you are like me and prefer a variety of small plates at dinner this is a great place for you. The artichoke dip was really tasty as well as the baby lamb chops. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious.

We came to experience Charlotte and were pretty picky about where we ate. He had plenty of time during the day to research where we wanted to eat. This place was by far our favorite. The food was unreal, wine selection great and the service just as good. A must if you are in town!

What's good: great, open space both upstairs and down. This is a tremendous place to go after work for drinks and a light meal. Service was excellent. Food was good. I had black bean sliders and grilled chicken wings. Sliders were just ok. Grilled wings were excellent. My wife had apple and brie salad and a cheese plate. They were... More

We decided to try Dandelion Market for brunch on a recommendation from other family who had enjoyed dinner here a month or so prior to my visit. They have a Bloody Mary bar on Saturday morning which is a fun way to start your day. The food at Dandelion is absolutely noteworthy. I enjoyed one of the best crabcake eggs... More

A small and ambient restaurant that had suitable privacy in between tables. Menu isn't extensive but they have good favorites and comfort food. I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup and was very pleased with the presentation and taste. The bread was perfectly crispy and the soup was so good, one of the best I've had I think. Service...

This place looks like an Irish pub on the outside, and inside serves American-inflected tapas. Fine beer selections, adequate wine. We were there the Saturday before Halloween and Charlotte was rockin'--we ourselves were glad to find a place just a little quieter, but with a bit of Halloween cheer, as it were. The take on "surf and turf" was very... More

We have been to Dandelion a few times and always loved our meal. Our last visit was with a group of 7 people and we were able to try many of the different tapas. The calamari, shrimp bruschetta, sweet potato gnocchi, shrimp & grits were all delicious! They also have good wine bottles for only $25!
