As always this place is amazing! The staff, the atmosphere, the music and no doubt the food and drinks are phenomenal. We never meet a stranger here. The drinks are pricey but worth it!!!! Update! As I said 4 years and it still rings true today. You never meet a stranger. Cole and his wife were stopping by on their way back to Florida. Glad we sat next to you guys We will miss the Soul crew as we retire in San Carlos, Panam Love and light

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!!!

Bar tenders were well trained, friendly, knowledgeable, and could make a damn good drink. From Old Fashions and Manhattans, to their bourbon/basil drink, they were all really good! Highly recommend for a low lit, upscale feel bar that served what appeared to be delicious food albeit I didnt try any. Recommend. 5 stars. Will be back.

There aren't letters in the human language that can be compiled to translate the amount of incredible this place is. I travel nonstop for work, and since Im quirky and original, I make it a mission to find unique places everywhere I go. Nobody else does this, just me. But enough about me, this place is by far the best food stuffery I've ever been to. Food Atmosphere Service View All in one package. Soul, you win. Everything. Oh! And get the Pork Belly Tacos. Like stop reading this right now and just yell, "Pork Belly!" Do it. Right now. Seriously. Right now.

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.
