Had a fantastic experience, yet again!

Everytime I go to Soul I am impressed, best tapas place in Charlotte! The food makes the wait worth it.

We tried the Tuna Tacos, the Pork Belly Tacos, and a Napolean Roll and they were all amazing. We did order something with red peppers, cream cheese/bruschetta that was too heavy for us. Tuna tacos came in a small fried wonton shell that was delicious. The pork belly was probably fried since it was crispy. Also some unique desserts on... More

My go to spot. Food is good and diverse. Atmosphere is the best. Great service. Make sure your whole party is there or else you have to wait. Opens at 5pm and fills pretty fast.

Heard nothing but great things about this place, so i decided to brave the 45min wait. I wish i would have passed. I ordered 4 things off of the menu based on the servers recommendations; the Pork Belly Tacos, the Brussel Sprouts, the Garlic Fires and one of their signature sushi rolls (forget which one). The Fries stole the show,... More

If you want Tapas in Charlotte, plus sushi, this is the place to come. Parking can be a challenge, but go to the big lot behind CVS. Expensive but delightful. Great cocktails.

Definitely one of the best places I have dined in. It is located in a hip location and there is a waiting list but we called in advance and had the luck to be sited the moment we had arrived (you can’t really reserve a place, but if you call they will add you to a ‘waiting’ list and will... More

Love this place - come with friends and get an assortment of small plates to share. You really can't go wrong with the food or drinks. Only downside is the wait that exists every night of the week. Put your name on the list and grab a drink or head downstairs to the art gallery/wine bar for a drink while... More

Now THIS is what I was looking for in Charlotte! Cool place, creative menu items, good drinks, and friendly staff. They don't take reservations so show up early if you don't want to wait. We had shrimp ceviche, pan con tomate, french fries, and pork belly stuffed shells & cheese. Grabbed a peanut butter cup cake as well to go.... More

Soul is one of my favorite restaurants, not just in Charlotte, but anywhere. The food never disappoints, and they're always pulling together some new flavors to keep things interesting. A must for anyone in Charlotte.

I go just for these pockets of deliciousness. This is a tapas place, featuring southern upscale soul food and Asian food. The garlic fries are also delish.
