Good Food on Montford
You’ve got to be pretty confident in your cuisine to name your restaurant Good Food, but Good Food on Montford has backed up its name for the past 10 years. A tapas-style restaurant where plates are meant to be shared, but you don’t necessarily have to share. Patio seating, take-out and dine in available, but must wear masks upon entering.

Green curry mussels may be my new favorite food ever. I expect to use the phrase "if you love me, you will take me for green curry mussels....". In a playful way of course. Amazing staff. Sat at the chefs bar. Food was surprisingly inexpensive considering creativity and quality. Can't wait to go back.
Awesome spot offering good food, good service and good vibes. A range of decadent and diverse small plates crafted with care, perfect for sharing. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's a small restaurant and with their line system in lieu of reservations there can be a longer wait for larger parties of 6 or more on a weekend night so keep that in mind. Highly recommend!
First, I was so impressed by the atmosphere walking in. I love the small, local feel and all the rustic but sleek decor. The staff was instantly welcoming. I was surprised at how much it just felt like hanging out with old friends. I am so grateful for the staff that took the time to befriend and care for us. Yes, "care for" because that's the truth of the experience we had. On top of all of that, the food was downright excellent. I had mussels in a cilantro curry sauce that I could have drank by the bucket and a gorgeous carnitas dish with a really delicate cornbread crust. Delicious! To top it off, we were surprised with a selection of fantastic desserts. I could eat those banana pudding ice cream sandwiches and die happy. Thanks for an incredible meal!
Good Food on Montford has impressed me every time I've visited over the past five years. If Michelin stars were awarded for Charlotte restaurants this place would be on the first round. The steamed buns were my first addiction but have honestly eaten 50+ plates over six years at Good Food and never been disappointed. My newest favorite and "must try" recommendation would easily be the carnitas tacos :)
The food is excellent, as the name implies. My wife and I shared 5 different plates and they were all great. The best dish was the pork carnitas and out least favorite was the gnocchi; however, it was still much better than your average gnocchi. No doubt, check it out. Make sure to get there early or wrestle with the masses after 8pm.
