I dined here during their extended restaurant week. I caught them on the last day and I'm so glad I did. I had a wonderful evening dining at the bar. The salmon was cooked perfectly and so, so, so delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We choose to eat here while staying in Plaza Midwood given excellent reviews on all web sites for foodies. The restaurant lived up to its reputation. All of the dishes were top notch, the service was warm & friendly yet very professional, the environment was classy.

Since we were late, the restaurant was empty. However the server was welcoming, described the food specials in detail and helped with choices. She was cheerful and the repartee was fun. The food was delicious. We had a good time.

We were hopeful upon entering. Service was okay, wine was overpriced, and food was fine, but wouldn't return. We were charged higher prices than the menu showed.

By far the best place in Charlotte for a unique meal, w/quality service and affordable prices. The food by Chef Majid is beyond comparison to other places in town and it changes w/better meals added often. Saffron Mussels is to die for as are all the desserts. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

We want to Bistro La Bon for Charlotte's Restaurant week! The deal was too good not to go! Four course for $35 is a steal. They do charge a little extra for the Filet and the scallops but still an amazing deal. The ambience is perfect for a romantic night out! Our waiter was good and the service was good.... More

I had high hopes for my first visit. Unfortunately it fell short. Sat for 13 minutes at the table and we had to flag down our waiter to even get water. Portions were much smaller than I expected for the price. Calamari was good but scallops were very salty. The waiter brought desert while we were still in middle of... More

Family and friends celebrated my daughter's birthday there on New Years Eve brunch! My daughter found the place by Googling "best brunch in Charlotte"! Charlotte is a 30-minute drive from us. The food & drinks were great and prices were surprisingly reasonable! But, that's not the best part. It was our experience! Our server, Hunter, hilariously handled all of our... More

This hidden gem is located in a rather rundown strip mall - but step inside and you will be transported. Very eclectic menu - never had a bad meal. Excellent brunch. Nice lounge area with couches.
