Ordered the cherry & lamb, spicy stuffed poblano, and brussel sprouts. Very tasty and affordable! If a pub could be cozy, this dimly lit place fits the bill.

Our family of four enjoyed the upstairs ambiance with its warm and casual seating. We enjoyed several of the small plates and beers on tap. The staff was friendly and accommodating as they made several visits to our table. They certainly get a good workout with their attentive service. We appreciated the staggered delivery of tapas allowing us to enjoy... More

First night in Charlotte and a very good meal. Started with a great selection of beers on tap. Ordered six different items from the menu tapas style...the dishes were staggered as they came to the table keeping the fresh dishes coming. Capped with a piece of key lime cheesecake.

We were thrilled with the variety of tapas and cocktails at Dandelion Market. We loved the ahi tuna, macaroni and cheese, spinach and artichoke dip and shrimp and grits. We had a fabulous cocktail called Summer Water. I highly recommend this place if you're staying in the Epicentre. The cocktails were $12, the Southern Caprese was okay and the black... More

This is my second time dining here on the second floor bar area. It is always very loud so a little difficult to have conversation or hear others if you are at a table for more than four. The service is great and the food is terrific. Enough variety that everyone can find 3-4 dishes for themselves or to share.... More

Walked to a late dinner here and loved the atmosphere. Was seated upstairs where there was a full bar available. Since it was late we were able to watch the restaurant turn into a night bar. Dinner was tapas style where my boyfriend and I split four plates. Stayed after dinner and enjoyed drinks like it was a bar.

Something different. Trendy crowd, mostly couples on Wed. Night. 3 dishes was plenty for 2 people. Look forward to going back and trying more dishes.

It looked like there was some seating upstairs but we were seated in the bar area which was pretty loud even on a Tuesday night owing to all of the hard surfaces in the room. Sitting in a noisy bar had two effects on my experience: it made me want to pay pub prices for the food and it made... More

I stopped in for lunch with my Wife and a friend. I am sorry to say this was not our first choice but few places were open on Memorial Day. Well, the lack of open restaurants allowed us to find a small gem! The inside is simple brick and open. A very corner bar feel. We ordered the Patata Bravas,... More
