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

With rave reviews my cousin took me here for dinner while working in Charlotte. The food was absolutely delicious and the portion sizes were perfect. Our server gave us just enough time between plates to talk and catch up. He offered his suggestions, all of which were excellent. The artisan cheese plate with carrot marmalade was wonderful combination of tastes... More

I've visited Bistro La Bon three times and each of those times it has been outstanding. The service is attentive and the prices aren't unreasonable for the food you get. Of all the dishes my husband and I have tasted our favourites are the Swedish meatballs (the Lingonberry sauce makes this) and the Bourbon Brioche Bread pudding. However, we highly... More

My husband and I went for Charlotte Restaurant week where we had 4 courses for $30. The food was very good but there were a few minor things to note. I'm not sure if the portion size was smaller due to restaurant week…? One of my choices was the gnocchi appetizer. It was delicious but there were 5 gnocchi's on... More

Bistro La Bon used to be my favorite place to eat and drink. The atmosphere and food was always outstanding even if it was a little expensive. BUT the last two times I have gone, the service has been terrible. The first bad experience it took forever for the initial round of drinks to show up and was impossible to... More

Be sure to check out their beer and wine tasting events, which are paired with food and reasonably priced. Also, pay attention to their bar bites. Chef Majid has consistently outdone many other flashy, high-profile restaurants in the area. Locally sourced items, such as Tega Hills Farm produce, are found. At $20, the Sunday brunch isn't cheap, but is well... More
