We came for dinner one night while in Charlotte and would HIGHLY recommend Dandelion Market! The atmosphere is awesome - an old building turned into a restaurant. It's two floors and we were seated on the second floor. It's a "darker" setting but we loved...More

The first thing we noticed was how loud it was. Why do places insist on turning the music up. It just makes everyone at their tables have to speak loud to hear each other. We asked to be moved and they gave us a table...More
