My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hotel Charlotte a couple of weeks ago and decided, based on the delicious smells coming from the Charlotte Bistro, to stay and eat dinner. The small plates were great and made it possible for us to try quite a few of the dishes on the menu. We had, at the recommendation of our server, the compressed strawberry salad and it was beyond words. So delicious! We also got the calamari, lamb meatballs, and yam gnocchi. They were all delicious and we ate every last bite, I would have licked my plate clean if it hadn't been so crowded. The place was packed, it's obviously the place to be in Groveland. Everyone was happy and the bartender was quite entertaining.
Our experience here was fantastic and we will be back soon. I can't wait to to try the rest of the food on the menu!
Oh no! I almost forgot desert. Despite being delightfully full from our dinner, I could not resist dessert. I ordered the passionfruit pudding cake and will never ever regret that decision. The cake was soft and moist and had a wonderful passionfruit flavor throughout. it was served with fresh berries and Greek yogurt and I couldn't get enough.
I couldn't recommend this restaurant more. If you are anywhere near Groveland you need to eat here.
