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!!

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
