Soul Gastrolounge, quite possibly might just be my favorite restaurant in Charlotte so far. Exquisite food and ambiance make this venue the place to be on any given night. The food was filling and delicious, full-bodied and flavorful. I'll truly make it a point of venture to return here again on my next visit. The music brought a whole vibe and kept in the energy in the room moving. The drinks were creative and strongly full-filling with a wonderful mix of flavors. Our food came out plated wonderfully and tasted even better then they looked. Make a point to visit this spot, you won't regret it.
This was the best place we ate at on a recent trip to Charlotte. From a completely unique, one of a kind menu to the overall vibe. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience at Soul Gastrolounge. We tried a multitude of different options as the menu is just so unique. I can't say that any particular dish was my "favorite," but they were all great! You'll likely see other reviews referencing the Asian Glazed Pork Belly Tacos. There's a reason...... Just freaking try them, they're wild, and crazy, and awesome! I'd definitely eat here again on our next visit!!!
This was my second time here. First time I ate here must've been 3 or 4 years ago. The service here was great. Our waitress was friendly and quick. We ordered about 8 different items for the 4 of us. The dishes were hit or ok, nothing was bad. Sushi rolls were decent. The short rib was flavorful and good. Food presentation A+. Liked the ambiance although it is quite loud inside. Really good cocktails as well. Definitely recommend a visit.
Had a great time going here for my anniversary! It is a bit pricey but worth every penny. This place is delicious and has a great vibe and the variety and flavors of food is fantastic. Sitting outside is a blast as well
This place was bussin. Expect a wait if you come here, we anticipated it and didn't mind, it was about an hour to hour and a half. There's tons of things nearby to go to while you wait. We came back after the recommended time but I think we were still in line but there was two open bar seats so we just sat there. All the food was delicious, everyone recommends the pork belly taco and I have to echo that. It's definitely interesting with the watermelon and the sauce on the pork belly was amazing. The bartender was very friendly and helped my girlfriend make a virgin drink and I got one as well. Don't remember what drinks we got but they were really good as well. Great date night spot.
