We stopped here on a whim, ready for a drink and a snack. Our drinks (while pricey) were delicious and like nothing we'd had before. The food was Ah-Maze-Ing!! We ordered the chorizo stuffed poblano and the baked potato croquettes...scrumptious! Plus all the hard wood and exposed brick and beams made for a gorgeous atmosphere. Highly recommend!

The restaurant is lively and busy. The wait staff were very nice and the food was tasty. Good food selection - you can order a few smaller dishes and share for variety.

We ordered a small plate meal to share among the three of us - market mac-n-cheese, sweet & spicy green beans, black bean sliders, deviled eggs (dill), and apple ravioli w/ice cream. Quiet, spacious environment at 2pm in the afternoon, service was good, and every bite was amazing!

Pork Belly, Tuna, Scallops...all excellent. The menu read small plates, in America that means big enough. I really liked this place. It was reasonably priced, not really busy yet the food was very fresh. It was right downtown but felt hidden away, a little rustic but that too added to the environment. Although it was a business dinner, it also... More

Was in Charolette one night on business and was looking for local beers and finger food. Discovered Danelion Market walking the city. The dishes are tapas size. I had the seared tuna and meatballs. I was really impressed with the tuna as it was still warm and very large! The meat balls where good but for the size and price... More

You can not go wrong in selecting a plate from Dandelion Market. Every small dish is packed with the flavor of 10 dishes over. Their Ahi Tuna is perfectly served with a sauce on the side that unleashes the spice and compliments the texture of the medium rare fish. The pommes frites are not your ordinary French fry but that... More

Went to dinner here with some girlfriends while visiting Charlotte. I love the idea of tapas. It's fun to get a bunch of stuff and share. We got the crostini with procuitto, calamari, brussel sprouts and these fried potato balls (cant exactly remember the name of them). Everything was good, I would go back to try more things since I...

My wife and I stopped in Charlotte on our way south and the Dandelion Market restaurant was on the Hilton hotel's recommended list so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did. They are a tapas style restaurant and everything we tried was excellent...nuts and fruit salad, chorizo and poblano pepper, calamari, and sweet potato gnocchi. We... More

My daughter and I shared Mediterranean Trio, Deviled Eggs, Sliders, and Macaroni and Cheese. All were reasonably priced and tasted fabulous. The servers were attentive, professional, helpful and kind. We definitely recommend this restaurant to others and will return in the near future.
