Wow! Who knew? Excellent cuisine right here under our noses. Went because we had a coupon and didn't want the usual chain/barfare of the University area (please restaurateurs! more good restaurants in this area!). I read a few of the reviews, but honestly wasn't expecting much, especially once we got there and were told the restaurant was closed for the... More

Nice view! We purchased a restaurant.com certificate several months ago and had to try a few times to find it open, it was closed twice when we tried over the summer for receptions or parties so call first if you are driving there. I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in the hotel. The food was excellent, the setting... More

We are locals from Charlotte and have never been to the restaurant! We loved our experience. Great food and wine selection. Charlotte locals should run here!

Our family stayed at the hotel for a few weeks this summer so we ate dinner at the Lakefront Restaurant several times. The food was excellent and the servers are all really nice! Make sure to ask about the daily specials. They have weekly prime rib and lobster nights. Some nights they have free apps or desserts. Some of our... More

First of all, we arrived to the restaurant at 10:30 for Sunday Brunch only to find out they closed their doors at 10:30 to get ready for lunch which begins at 11am. It was incredibly disappointing that a hotel as big as the Hilton only serves "Sunday Brunch" until 10:30am. We decided to take a stroll around the lake and... More

Granted that our convention strained this small (relative to the size of the hotel) restaurant, the food on the breakfast buffet was average at best, and the cook making omelets, while competent, was unpleasant and seemed too tired for that hour of the morning. Kudos to the hard working if a bit harried server who made sure we were taken... More

I liked everything about the restaurant. The wait staff and food were excellent! The strawberries and blackberries were extra good.

My first experience at this restaurant located in the Hilton at University, was for my birthday back in May. My son and I had a quiet mother/son dinner on a Friday night. I was surprised that there were not many patrons at the time we arrived, which was 6:30. It was our first time there. We were seated, the atmosphere... More
