My boyfriend and I visited here after dinner on a Saturday night, looking for somewhere to have a nice cocktail. My cockail was horrible, and I have never been treated so rudely by a bartender. The bartender had to read the description of my drink before making, which is usually a bad sign. It was so bad that I couldn't... More

Good food though not much for vegetarians in my opinion. I always get the grilled cheese but I'm picky! Love the vibe, guest djs, drinks, and diverse crowd. Service is pretty good as well. Nicest lounge in Charlotte with a DJ though the place is small. Gives me a good NY feel..

We love this place. We've lived nearby for 8 years and eat here several times a year (it would be more often, but there are a lot of other great spots and new places to try, too). Funky decor and cool music. Memorable mixed drinks. Menu always changes a little but keeps some of the best around as permanent items.... More

Yummy food flavors, crafted cocktails. If you're eating at the bar be prepared to be ignored a bit. Even if you order things all at one time, the food will be brought out as it is ready, not all together. Can get crowded fast as it is a small space so reservations are a must.

At Soul you can almost guarantee a wait - however the food, drinks, and atmosphere is worth it! This is a tapas style restaurant with a nice sushi selection. I highly recommend the "Ramen Bowl" - ramen noodles in a garlic cream sauce, with veal cheeks & fried goat cheese mushrooms creating a wonderfully unique & balanced dish.

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
