Lunch at Bistro La Bon

Outside unremarkable but inside was great! Waitress attentive and friendly. Had luncheon special with salad and was not disappointed. Owner/manager came to our table to inquire about service and to welcome us. Overall, great experience.

The most fancy and incredible brunch experience I've ever had, to begin. I would highly recommend having reservations (especially on a weekend) as my friends and I arrived on a Sunday afternoon and had to lurk by the bar as the wait for a table was around 30-40 minutes. It was worth the work though! The buffet was spectacular and... More

For a restaurant in an older strip-mall, surprises await! This part of town is known more for eclectic than fine dining, but Bistro La Bon is the exception. Creative dishes, attentive service, and an outstanding weekend brunch are all winners.

I I love this place. Small plates artfully presented. I always go with a few friends and we order many plates and enjoy a culinary trip around the world.

Unexpectedly had to be in Charlotte for Sunday. Went onto Trip Advisor to find a place for brunch. You did not let me down. A real food delight. Sunday brunch is a buffet - but what a buffet. They take grits to a whole new plane with their Asiago Cheese Grits. Plenty for vegetarians - roasted vegetable, potato gratin, fresh... More

Simply one of the best dining experiences in Charlotte. We have eaten here at least four times, and the last time was fantastic. We began with the Jamon Iberico de Bellota and assorted cheeses and worked our way to the small plates: Pan Seared Gnocchi, Lavender Chicken, and Rack of Lamb. All were incredibly flavorful, especially the pumpkin bread substituted... More

Boyfriend and I visited for brunch on a Sunday- we are always looking for places that stay open for breakfast late as we are lazy on weekend mornings. We didn't realize it would be about $20 per person for the brunch but I'm glad we tried it. Huge buffet area with everything from steamed veggies and rosemary potatoes to cheesy... More

Attentive service with great food and wine suggestions. Menu changes periodically. Located in failing strip mall but don't be deterred by this.

My other half and myself came here for brunch and it was AMAZING!! It's buffet style which is great, but the CHOCOLATE waffles, French toast, and eggs & bacon are made to order!!! I cannot wait to come back to eat there again!! On a scale 1 - 10, they for sure get an 11!!
