Anniversary Dinner

Had heard s lot about Bistro La Bon in Plaza Midwood so decided to try for our anniversary dinner. Our server was excellent as she explained the menu. We settled on three small plates, mussels, lavender chicken and crab cake all were perfect. If you are looking for something a little different give... read more

Recently visited for birthday dinner celebration. Disappointed since we had heard so many good things. The restaurant was almost empty when we arrived. Server came quickly, filled out glasses with warm water. Drinks took more time then you would think with an empty restaurant. Some sort of fly/gnat around table was annoying. Ordered first the brie, which was good and... More

I'll say that the end was better than the beginning and middle. Definitely don't miss the desserts, we had the bread pudding and flourless chocolate desserts both were incredible! We started out with octopus which was cooked wonderfully and super delicious but was way overpriced for just one small octopus tentacle. We tried the scallops which were decent but a... More

A friend and I visited for the first time. Really interesting menu, and executed so well. The brie brulee was swoon-worthy, and the lavender chicken had components that didn't sound as if they would go together well --- but they did. We also had the filet, cooked just right, with a lovely melange of cooked onion, pear, and duck-fat fried... More

We took some friends here for a culinary adventure. We had visited before and liked the place and the food. Our waiter was very helpful in describing the dishes ( tapas) and how much we needed for 4 people. The lavender chicken was absolutely delicious! It was our favorite. The fried Brussel sprout were also very good. An eclectic atmospher.... More

During a visit to Charlotte, some friends suggested we dine here. It's located in a very unassuming strip mall. The location and entrance don't provider any indication of the quality of food to be found inside. It's not Michelin star, but it is very, very good. Beef wellington appetizer plate was SUPERB, The mussels in a slightly spicy creamy broth,... More

love the chocolate waffles and scrambled eggs and bacon. Sometimes they offer omelettes to be brought out as well.

I met some friends here for Father's day and had the most amazing brunch. Everything on the buffet was fresh and tasty. The gravlax was especially good. The buffet alone was amazing but my friends ordered a number of additional items like bacon, scrambled eggs, eggs benedict, etc that were excellent. They served these chocolate waffles that were to die... More
