Great Service for our Anniversary

We went here for our third anniversary and I was very impressed with the restaurant's attention to detail. Our table was covered in confetti and about 3-4 people came by to wish us a happy anniversary. The food was delicious and the service phenomenal! Hope to return again - thanks!

We got in late to Barcelona and we ate here at midnight just before the restaurant changes into a club. Dinner came out fast and was very enjoyable meal, nice Sangria, and entertaining place to people watch.

The food is amazing, the service was spectacular and the price... not as bad as I thought it was. If you want someplace good to eat without the hassle of picking a place, I say pick this place. Can't go wrong here.

Was in town visiting my son. Decided to see if this restaurant really should be rated number one in Charlotte. We were not disappointed. Appetizers of ahi tuna and grilled octopus. Dinner was wreck fish and a Porkchop. The service was perfect from start to finish and the food fantastic. We called at the last minute to get a table... More

Our family has lived in Charlotte for 30 years and enjoyed this restaurant on so many occasions I have lost count. The atmosphere is friendly and the waitstaff is knowledgeable and efficient. I love the dining room interior. My favorite entrees change with every visit and be sure to try at least one of the desserts. I'm looking forward to... More

Three of us ate here on a Saturday evening. We had reservations and were seated immediately. Staff was friendly, service was decent, but the food was out of this world. My meal was the cheese plate appetizer (must have) with a 8oz filet cooked to perfection. Others had the beef carpaccio and the fried chicken (it has its own web... More

I love the experience of dining at Carpe Diem. We started with the delicious carpaccio and the hummus and both were extraordinary. I had the duck confit for my entree and it was delicious. I shared the peach ice cream that came with a co-diner's cheesecake and there are simply not words for how delicious that was. Tasted like a... More
