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!!

We sampled 3 small plates and one entree at this amazing restaurant and all were fabulous. Brie brûlée, crunchy avocado & asparagus, lavender chicken and Swedish meatballs were all superb - All were more than ample portions and beautifully prepared an presented. We'd recommend this place to anyone - service, ambiance and most of all, the food were all awesome!

I went here for restaurant week and i can't wait to come back! This isn't the dinner spot for anyone looking to leave full, this is more of a food experience than anything. I had the mussels with saffron creme and leeks, very nice. The meat is cooked perfectly and not overly salted, and my fiance had the salmon which... More

My boyfriend and I visited for Charlotte Restaurant week. We frequented other restaurants in the area but never went here for whatever reason. I'll break things down as best I can. Food: I opted for the farm lettuce salad (1st course), the trio tapenade (2nd course), the saffron risotto (3rd course), and the flourless chocolate cake (4th course). The salad... More

We liked EVERYTHING about this place. Trendy yes, Crowded, yes, but awesome incredible food from the appetizers to the dessert. We happened in (unplanned) during restaurant week and the menu surely did not disappoint. GRETA selections and AWESOME value. Nice but not extensive wine list, it suits the place. The restaurant is a little gem, on the end unit of... More

We actually chose La Bon as a last minute substitute and were we thrilled. The pre-dinner drinks were great, the atmosphere and overall ambience were the best we've seen in Charlotte (just moved from South Florida) and the food quality and presentation were also 2nd to none. I would highly recommend dinner at La Bon on the weekend, around 8... More

I have always been pleasantly surprised when I eat at Bistro La Bon. The pasta meals are my favorite and the coffee is very good. They have a good wine selection and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Reasonably priced. I highly recommend it.

Went during a weekday for the $10 lunch buffet. Shrimp and grits was too salty. The pasta looked dried up. The only items that was fit to eat was the green salad and the meatballs.

Brunch is appropriately labeled a smorgasbord and it delivers. Buffet has a little bit of everything including salad, fruit, meats, grits, pasta, scones, muffins, tarts, bread and various other items. You order eggs, bacon, waffles and French toast from the kitchen. The brioche french toast is some of the best that I have ever eaten. We had Juan as a... More
