The Wine Loft
The owner, Sam, is the man! Nice place to hang out with friends and a glass of wine. They have tasty appetizers. Great atmosphere.
We tried to go to a trendy new restaurant that doesn't take reservations (pretty annoying). The wait was 2 hours... for probably mediocre food. I found the Wine Loft on Open Table and I will definitely be going back! Everyone was so pleasant - the server, the bartender, the owner. The food was unique and great. I loved my jalepeno, zucchini, triple cheese panini and my husband really enjoyed his margherita pizza. The server was really knowledgeable about the wine and helped us choose a great bottle. If you're feeling adventurous, try the bourbonator- you won't be disappointed!
Had a blast. A wonderful atmosphere
Poor quality selection of wine, unprofessional owner, keep your hand on your wallet & count your drinks then look at your bill closely. Think twice about using a credit card & if you do make sure that you look at your statements in the future for unexpected new charges. Not a good idea to have too many drinks since that is a good way to find out that you bought 40 shots for 3 people. The responsible party of the establishment can then argue that you were too drunk to remember what you did.. (A friend of mine had this happen to him). Just a few of the many ways to get burned here. This review is from extensive personal experience & the first hand experience of many others who used to be regulars & also those who I witnessed being shaken down. Be very suspicious of any efforts to make this review not credible and look at who's behind it. There are many tangled webs spun at the Wine Loft.
One of my favorite places in Charlotte to get a cocktail or a glass of wine. The ambiance is perfect for date night and the service is on point.
