One of my top choices for dining out in Uptown. Great food and drinks, with unique flavor combinations. Atmosphere is wonderful and the staff is always great. Lunch is great too and reasonably priced.
Hostess and wait staff were pleasant and accommodating. My spouse enjoyed a cheeseburger and fries (sweet potato) and I had the croque madame. We also had a cheese and olive plate, and we tried a local beer. The portions we large and filling, and well seasoned. I also tried the lentil soup. This was the only disappointment, as it was utterly flavorless. We recommend the place!
Food is spectacular. Pricey but worth it for a celebratory dinner. View is pretty, venue is beautiful. Service just fine, not overly warm or friendly.
D-licious! The Rib eye was wonderfully cooked and not heavily seasoned because IT DIDNT NEED IT! The natural flavor was so apparent because it was not a frozen cut shipped from some far off land. The Smoked Salmon/honey and cheese (small bowls) were a fantastic appetizers. Wonderful ambiance and wait staff were very appropriate and friendly. If you want to go to a top notch place in charlotte were you wont see Rick Flare, Halcyon IS the place to go.
Amazing space with contemporary decor and incredible dishes and cocktails to match. Top notch service from host stand to bar to service staff. And it's in a museum. Come on. How much cooler can it be?
