Gourmet dining in a quiet setting.

While checking out the Dilworth area of Charlotte we happened upon this gem. An old church converted into a restaurant. The food was superb, I had a filet and my husband had lamb chops and both were perfectly prepared. They have an extensive list of wines by the glass and our waitress suggested... read more

Wine list is off the charts, incredible. They have so many wines by the glass. If you love wine this place will not disappoint. The I ambience is great. The history alone is so intriguing. We loved our food and our server was very knowledgeable. There's a lot of creativity in each dish. We would highly recommend.

We ventured here during Restaurant Week as that is usually a good way to try new places. We were a bit surprised that ONLY the Restaurant Week menu was available. Typically you are able to order something off the regular menu if the pre fix selection does not excite one of us - but not here. The place was half... More

We have been here multiple times, and have never been let down. The food is amazing! Always great quality and the perfect flavor combinations. The wine is great. Despite everything else, the wait staff may be the best thing about this restaurant. If you are able to get Jeff as your waiter and/or Donna as your bartender you will never... More

Bonterras has never disappointed us. For years this is our must visit restaurant whenever we are in Charlotte. The servers are top shelf professional. They along with the ambiance and menu set the fine dining bar in Charlotte.

The atmosphere is awesome, because the restaurant is in a former church. Nice intimate setting on both floors. We had been here previously for other holiday celebrations & knew we wanted to come back. But this Mother's Day wasn't impressive at all. They changed from a set menu to buffet. I personally was ok with the change, but at least... More

Tried Bonterra for the first time at Easter Brunch & we'll definitely be back! Service was warm and friendly and the buffet had lots to choose from. The eggs benedict was great!!

The old church is kind of cool and the art inside is pretty sweet. The service was good for this class of restaurant and the entres were anywhere between good to great. We loved the charcuterie and the appitizers but the main courses were a little hit and miss. Although the steak got rave reviews from one of my colleguaes,... More

Interesting decor, in an old church. But seemed a little drafty. Food was good, with a good selection for restaurant week. Portions seemed normal sized. Had the trout and my friend had the steak. Both were tasty with interesting sides.
