So glad this place moved. It is so much more convenient to go to Elizabeth-- which is quickly becoming a great restaurant destination. The food is still very french-inspired fancy. We sat at bar and had many small plates (they have a bar menu in addition to regular). Everything was good. We thought a couple of things may have overshot... More

Passion8 is a hidden gem. The exterior of the nondescript place doesn't compare to the intimate setting that awaits inside. The ambiance is perfect for a quiet date night. The menu offers locally sourced/organic options so the food is fresh along with the ever changing menu. In our experiences, it has always been excellent and the presentation is beautiful too....

This hard to find word of mouth restaurant is moving to uptown Elizabeth. I am so sad, but it will really let Chef Luca and his team spread their wings! Can't wait to try out the new space as I'm sure they won't disappoint. The staff is always on point and the food will be some of the best in... More

Great food and atmosphere. Sad to see them move later this year but we will just have to travel a little further to dine there.

We recently moved into the area 4 weeks ago, and after all the stress of unpacking, we were really excited to try a restaurant that was written up as a hidden gem. The Calamari appetizer was over fried, and in many of the pieces tough and chewy. We also had the fois gras appetizer and it was ok, nothing like... More

Liked the restaurant for all the reasons you can read about. By all means try it, but don't expect to get an entree like portion. I am not a cheapskate when I dine but wow, 4 scallops and nothing else but some garnish for $33. Sorry, but that will not bring me rushing back. My wife agreed it was nice... More

I celebrated my birthday last month in this Fort Mill gem. One can only hope that the restaurant's impending move to bigger digs in the Elizabeth neighborhood of Charlotte won't spoil the restaurant's intimate feel and outstanding attention to detail. Although Passion8 Bistro is a little too expensive to be an "every day" kind of restaurant, it is a relatively... More

We're new to Charlotte and love to try new restaurants. We both had the tasting menu (app, primi, entree and desert).....we both really enjoyed our meals. Had the house calamari (loved it!) beet soup (just amazing), scallops and raspberry bon bon's. He enjoyed the cheese/charcutrie/ foie gras, smoked pork and bon bon's as well. Our waitress was lovely and we... More

The food was so tasty - the calamari is a must-try. Our server, Paula, was wonderful. The menu was limited, but everything that came out of the kitchen looked spectacular. The farm to table concept makes the prices a bit higher, but the quality was worth it. It is a small restaurant and the tables are a little close together,... More

This is absolutely the most amazing gem in Fort Mill! I took a party of 9 for dinner on NYE before we went out to ring in the new year. I have been here before but it was new to all others and I am still hearing raves about the entire meal, from the wine selections, the calamari appetizer...amazing!, the... More
