The decor was a wonderful balance of organic and artsy. We had high hopes because we heard (and read) some great reviews, but when we tasted our food the flavors were non-existent. For a Saturday night visit we were not sure if it was the chef's night off, but our experience was lackluster and unremarkable. The presentation and the city... More

This was an excellent lunch while taking a break from the museum. A very tasty salad. The Pork Belly BLT was also delicious (my friend got that).

Halcyon is one of our favorites. Our 16 year-old daughter has told us she has to go back several times. The fresh food and artistic preparation has won our approval.

Six of us dined here during a business conference. The first thing we noticed was that although the restaurant has a nice, modern vibe - you could also have a conversation. The noise level was entirely manageable for socializing. Our waitress, Meghan, was wonderful. Great suggestions, honest recommendations and super knowledgeable about dietary issues (one of our group was Gluten-Free... More

we were unable to get an evening reservation anytime on the weekend but had Sunday lunch before a visit to the Mint Museum. Beautiful environment, excellent staff and very well prepared, fresh and delicious food. I would absolutely go back. No sticker shock.

Had an excellent healthy fresh lunch at Halcyon uptown Charlotte, North Carolina. Sandwich, tart, salad, bread and service were all excellent.

Nice wine selection. Excellent mix-and-match starters options, including various appetizers and cheese plates. Mozzarella board was nice but a bit bland. Scallops were perfectly prepared. I would recommend this as a nice alternative to Essex when in Charlotte!

Lovely restaurant and nice view. We were here for lunch, first visit. Everything about Halcyon was totally to our expectation. The food was excellent. I enjoyed the Seafood Bouillon, which may have been the best I ever had. My wife had a chicken sandwich, which she also thought was quite good. The service was quite good also. Halcyon would certainly... More

We love going to Halcyon for the great food, lovely decor and always amazing views of uptown Charlotte. Don't expect to get in and out in an hour. This is a place where you should have a bottle of wine, definitely get a cheese board (it won't disappoint!) and enjoy the always interesting menu. I would highly suggest reservations, since...

My company had a client dinner here the first week of November. You work up an appetite walking up the stairs to the restaurant, which is inside the museum. The decor is very earthy chic with tables made from actual trees with bark still intact. The cheese and meat boards were tasty for appetizers. I had a posole soup that... More
