Had dinner here this past Saturday night with my husband. We arrived around 6:30pm and only waited 30 minutes to be seated. We really enjoyed the chorizo tapa with manchego and foccacia. The spicy feta dip was good, but the pita were a little too baked for my taste. The short rib was very good and tender. We tried the... More

Soul Gastro is one of my favorite places for sushi. I love sitting outside in the summer and fall. The food is always fresh and delicious!

This place has great and interesting food. I tried several different small items and they were all great. The atmosphere is fair. We sat out on the porch where the heaters were either on "cook" or turned off. The wait staff were all nice but would bring items, set them down and wouldn't even wait for us to ask anything....

A little bit out of Charlotte this came highly recommended by locals. The food is tapas style. I especially enjoyed the pork tacos with salsa! We enjoyed the alfresco dining on the first floor. Apparently they have a DJ on Saturday and get very busy but we experienced a chilled sunday

We went for dinner early as we heard the wait can get long. Arrived at 5, was told 20mins and it was 10mins. We shared 3 apps, ordered them all at once but they bring them out as they are ready. Lamb Lollipops, pork belly tacos and the ramen noodles. The ramen noodles are our favorite! The cream sauce was... More

I would recommend getting there early as it does get busy. it is a small lounge area with close tables. We tried the lamb skewers, spanakopita and... More

Being the only bar in town that custom makes every drink with all sorts of spices, herbs, and liquors, I love coming here for the food, the people, the atmosphere, and... the drinks! There is indoor and outdoor seating.

A small little restaurant, not too many tables, a few on the balcony outside .... but BIG flavors and a dynamite menu. Eclectic. Delicious. Different. Rich. Lush. Decadent. You HAVE to have the pork belly and pickled watermelon tacos, the flavor truly explodes in your mouth!

A friend and I had dinner here this weekend an it was great. The food was really good, with something for almost any palate. Never made it to the sushi, got stuck on their varied array of tapas. If you ever make it here please try the Asian Pork Belly Tacos. We will be back again!!

Amazing mixologist at Soul! Great spot for a drink or late night snack. The DJ is fantastic! We tried the skewers which were great but was not a huge fan of the ramen. Otherwise this place is a must when you visit Charlotte! Great staff!
