Recommended this place by a friend and it didn't disappoint. Tapas style with a rustic feel, the food was fresh and tasty, the service attentive and good value for money. Of the dishes we had, the only one that merited some left overs was the patatas bravas which weren't finished due to them being over-cooked and crispy. Would definitely recommend... More

Brunch on a Saturday is great. Unique selections and phenomenal flavor combinations make this a true brunch opportunity. Little Italy omelette is a fun Italian sausage, egg, and marinara blend. The Benny selections look a bit small, definitely big taste and filling though with Italian and Crab cake options. Best grits you will ever eat!

Tapas; we had the sliders, pei mussels and a side of pomme frites and we walked away very satisfied. Shared all the plates and they were tasty, fresh and hot. Service was good and the crowd was energetic. A fun place to have good food.

Only had one night in town and my friend suggested we meet here. The food was amazing! We had about 9 different things off the menu and every thing was delicious. The service was great. The ambience was nice. We will definitely come here again when we come back to town.

This time for lunch. First time was for their tapas and 1/2 off bottles of wine. The place is quaint with hardwood floors and a historic feel. I ordered the grilled cheese and tomato basil soup which was outstanding. Fresh bread loaded with cheese and great tasting soup. Service was quick and attentive. Well worth a stroll to eat here.

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
