The main courses were absolutely amazing. My wife had the pork chops, which were flavorful and tender, while I had trout on an amazing bed of beets, risotto, and spinach; delectable. Shared the scallops for an appetizer, well cooked and good but nothing overly special. Service was good, food was a little fussily prepared for my tastes but presented well. My only complaint was the back room was so loud that conversation was difficult even across a small table. I see more visits to The Stanley in my future. As an update, my wife and I were both independently, still thinking about how good the food was a week later
The best culinary experience we have had in Charlotte! The food was perfectly prepared. Excellent flavors. Tasty cocktails. Friendly service. I cant say enough good things. If you enjoy eating and expanding your pallet, get to The Stanley asap!
We tried to book a reservation to this place and is booked for over a month. Is a new place and I totally got it. The thing is we came anyway just to feel the vibe and tried the drinks. The bar area you can just come and sit but they tried to do a rotating thing so the people who were waiting before get to sit first. Sounds fair until they move you to the lounge area so the people who gets here after you can just simply sit before you. We were waiting for this couple to leave and the guy came to me and said that the couple sitting at the lounge were waiting before us. Okay, so they move to the bar area and he said to us to wait at the lounge area. This couple came in, order a drink and right after two chairs get available and guess what? They got seated before us. Drinks are good, very small and bright atmosphere. I would maybe try again in 3 months?! Not sure.
Service was fantastic. The 2 dishes I had were delicious and rich, definitely meant for sharing! I'm hoping the menu changes with the season. Cocktails were good and the space is really nice.
Beautiful space. Truly enjoyed the warm atmosphere while watching a storm roll through Charlotte out the large windows. Food was well balanced, creative and small plates were easily shared. Service was outstanding. Loved everything.
