    The concept of this restaurant is pretty good. My biggest complaint would be the service. We did not see our main waiter all evening. For the price you pay, I would expect better service. Drink glasses stayed empty for long periods of time. It felt things were disorganized. The lamb chops were ordered medium but came out medium well / well done. The management did remove it from our bill. I think this restaurant has potential but needs to work on the service to its customers

    Great food. Only one person serving with lots of support staff -this made for a long wait to order food. He was not very friendly. Limited eye contact and short. The whole fish was amazing.

    Takes fresh fish to a whole new level in booming Charlotte. Beyond fabulous! Same for wait staff. Ambiance is also spectacular. Can’t say enough great things about the experience and food. Octopus was out of this world. Sake for other fish we enjoyed. Great place to order dishes to share.

    Had a high top table reservation, but they tried to seat us at the sofa in the cocktail lounge. After a little back and forth, they told us to go buy drinks at the bar and seated us about 30 minutes later in the dining room. Then too many servers that didn’t have the best communication. 3 servers asking if we need another drink repeatedly when someone else already took the request, or multiple times asking to order food when we already had. Just wanted to not be interrupted so many times. And we ordered some small plates and they weren’t going to bring them all out at once… but then they did and our table didn’t have the room for them all. And the food was ok. Not the freshest seafood. Just average food.

    Pleasantly surprising! The food was fresh and delicious - we had the salmon and filet mignon - both cooked to our preference. This was our first visit and we will definitely go back. Service was slow as there were only 2 servers working but they offered impeccable care and attention (Michael was fantastic!). If you can relax and be patient, you may not notice the server shortage.

    We absolutely love this restaurant. Hands down best seafood In Charlotte. It’s expensive for Charlotte BUT it’s crowded so I guess price doesn’t scare consumers away. Server is very good and we love the service staff. Just need more of them as you can tell it’s strained for the amount of business y’all are doing. That said everyone is fantastic, food amazing

    I’ll just take this piece by piece. The food — either the bread they brought was some Greek-style thing, or it was hard and inedible. They’re asking $24 for Greek Salad - tomatoes, cucumbers onion and a couple of olives, topped by feta. It’s good to know that restaurants can’t get any better tomatoes than the rest of us. But why even serve it this time of year, and at that price? The “Loop de Mer,” however, was good. Atmosphere - it reminded me of a catered event at a grand train station. The main room is cavernous, filled with tables, and no booths or dividers breaking anything up. And our square table for four felt crowded. Service - a lot of hard working people. I don’t know how many tables our poor waiter had. He does some things, and the rest of the team does the rest. There must have been at least 10 people who “touched” our table in some way. But the result is that it’s frenetic, the waiter never gets a feel for what’s happening,and you feel “served,” rather than “taken care of.” I needed a Xanax when I left.

    Food was delicious (both fish and steak) but service was incredibly slow. We sat down for 20minutes before we could even get water and asked three times before each drink/bottle of wine. Loved the vibe and cool decor but the bathroom was horrendous. Overflowing toilet, toilet paper rolls (3!) on the floor and hand towels everywhere. Felt like a portapotty at a tailgate. Staff was very friendly!

    The wait staff seemed to be pulled in too many directions. Our waitress did not seem happy. She didn’t smile. It was our first time and no one told us about the menu or specials until we finally asked. No one told us there was olive oil in the blue bottle so we waited a while until we could ask someone where the oil was. Hoping they can work the kinks out. The atmosphere and people watching was great.

    The server could hardly be heard over the noise the restaurant. She took our drink orders while we reviewed the menu. We decided what we wanted and then she told us that the sardines on the appetizer menu were not available after two of us decided that was what we wanted. Should have told us in the beginning when she was describing the specials for the evening to include what wasn't available. The octopus that I ordered for the appetizer was bland. Two of us ordered the halibut but when served, the portions were not the same. The manager said they were each 8 oz. portions but then comped our desserts. The halibut was a halibut steak and not a filet which was not described as such on the menu. The halibut had a large center bone and many pin bones. The seasonal vegetables served with the halibut were also bland. The spinach served with the big eye tuna was also bland. The noise level was high which seems to be a problem with many restaurants with hard surfaces and no sound attenuation. But I would give it another chance in the future. The big eye tuna was delicious as were the appetizer Limani chips.

    A wonderful evening with our friends last night. Party of 6. Great atmosphere and music. Had drinks at the bar before and after diner. Diner was fantastic. Everything was so delicious. Service was spot on. Love it here. I will definitely be back. Nothing in Charlotte compares with the quality and flavors of this cuisine. Oh, the deserts were amazing. A must. Highly recommend!!

    It was much better than anticipated. I had read many recent review of terrible service but perhaps because it was a Mon night or maybe they fixed it, we had not issues. All the food was hot and delicious. It was pretty pricey however. But glad we tried it.

    Reservations for birthday dinner, and they wished guest happy birthday, but no special treat for dessert, which would’ve been a nice touch. Very good food selection, but high priced fish, which was excellent Beautiful space and ambience. Attentive service, but nothing spectacular. I would return, but probably just for drinks and appetizers in the bar. A solid meal, but pricing is more in line with high-end restaurants and I don’t think they are quite at that level.

    My husband and I eagerly awaiting this restaurants opening! It seems like they certainly took their time, but it was worth it. Just a beautiful space, very modern, yet warm and inviting at the same time. We went on a Sunday evening. Our guests were quite surprised that the restaurant was full. We began with well-made cocktails and continued on with their wine list. Fun to see some Greek wines for a change. Their appetizers were elegant yet fun. Our table ordered seared tuna and loop de mer, Both of which were beautifully plated, and absolutely delicious. My husband’s pork chop was interesting. He said it tasted delicious, but watching him cut it looked like an exercise in futility. Not certain he would order that again. There is something to be said for not ordering pork in a seafood restaurant! All in all, we had a lovely evening and look forward to returning. There has been some chatter about service levels at the restaurant, but we did not encounter any difficulties. There have also been discussions about the restaurant’s price point. I think they got it just right! My husband and I eat dinner out several times a week, and this is what we expect to pay for high quality food that is well prepared and served in a nice atmosphere with good service. They also deserve extra points for their valet parking.

    Overall can be best described as having potential right now. Setup/decor is great...formal dining and more casual dining (e.g. less stuffy) vibes in the lounge area which happens to compliment the fantastic circular bar. With it recently being opened they are in the middle of the usual work-out-the-kinks phase.. the food was inconsistent but having (wait for it) potential when they fine tune everything. Lastly...there was a ton about the service with many of them being bad...I was told about 30% turnover already...I can say the servers/bartenders (3 total)...did a GREAT job...they were nice and worked as fast as they could etc. The issue is more with management...not anticipating larger opening month crowds and seemingly not having good operational synergies. Food came out all at once or late...they really need a dedicated server + bartender in the lounge area...our poor server was handling EVERY table and going behind the bar! Lastly...manager seemed to walk to some tables but not others....which I would deem essential when you open a place. Good relationship management as well as obtaining real-time feedback is crucial for success not too mention it helps smooth out the rough edges of the opening ~60 days etc. Here is hoping they work it out and reach their potential.

    Some of the best seafood and fresh offering we’ve had in awhile! It was a busy night, so probably louder than usual. The service was good, very educated servers, etc. there were just a few times we had to flag down a waitstaff member However, again, a busy night! We will definitely be back!!
