Worth the long wait

Amazing food. Just amazing. They do not take reservations so you gotta just show up put your name in and wait. But it is worth it!

This place has everything. An atmosphere, incredible food, good wine selection and cocktails and all at good prices. Recently visiting North Carolina on vacation and stumbled upon this place courtesy of a TripAdvisor review and we enjoyed it so much we visited the restaurant twice, the second time despite having to make a one hour drive to get there....that's how...

My boyfriend and I had an amazing dinner here! Soul came highly recommended. The food was delicious, the price points are great for the quality of food. The service was also great. The wait was long, however it was certainly worth it! Will return soon!

One of the best restaurants in Charlotte. Love the tapas. They have one of the most unique and extensive bars in town if you know your liquor. This is a must do if you are in Plaza Midwood.

A few months ago, I wrote a review docking Soul for their always long waits. However, the 4.5 stars are now 5 stars for two reasons. 1: A great app called no wait which disrupts a line the way Uber disrupts taxi service. It's not open table, but it lets you secure your place in line, tells you the wait,... More

Delicious tapas restaurant made for a hipster! The earlier you get here in the night- the better chance you'll have to seat and dine- instead of wait for the bar patrons to get up. The popularity of this place has grown faster than they can- and the limited seating always is outnumbered by patrons looking to have a bite. Soul... More

I was so excited to try the Soul Gastrolounge for the 1st time. Went online did some more homework and v was sold. Well, when it says it's on the corner that's what they mean and its upstairs; alot of stairs. There is absolutely no place to wait for a table that's not in someone's way. The bar looks like...

Wow. Craft cocktails, a great selection of local brew and sushi were all some of the best I've had! Despite the wife and my rule about eating raw fish as far inland as we were, we took the plunge and we're glad we did. They also have tapas (we didn't have room in this trip) which looked like it was... More
