300 East Ratings and Reviews

The food was so-so. We ordered the pimento cheese app which was served with saltine crackers. Good have tried something a little classier. I had a decent house salad, dumpling entree and butterscotch ice cream sandwich dessert but nothing was worth recommending. I was disappointed and so were my guests who got the tofu kale salad and ahi tuna salad.
The server was friendly and attentive and had no complaints there.
The restaurant is dated and could use new chairs, tablewares, floor refinishing and some modernizing. It was loud and cramped and I had better expectations given the neighborhood and Charlotte's blossoming food scene.

There must be something you can do about the noise upstairs. You had a large, drunk group that were shouting at each other. Regrettably I brought a friend to experience 300 East for the first time. I doubt if we will be back. After dinner we walked across the parking lot to Bonterra to the bar. What a not civilized place.
The food was good, however the bread brought to the table only after I requested it was quite ordinary.

It has been a while since we've been to 300 East. We went with another couple and really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The house is wonderful - full of beautiful wood and interesting nooks and crannies. And the food was delicious - all four of our entrees were excellent. The only blemish on the evening was "meh" service. Our waitress was fine - but totally lacking in personality or anything that made us feel welcome. I felt like she would have been more at home at a chain restaurant rather than 300 East. I remembered excellent service from previous visits, so this surprised me. But overall, the atmosphere, food, and friends made this an enjoyable evening, and we will return.

Great vegetables! The veggie plate is always good but tonight it rocked! Edamame that was smoked or grilled. Not sure what they did to make it taste so good but it was unusual and fantastic. The wine list is good and has many affordable choices. You can never go wrong with this Charlotte institution.

We were looking for a cozy dinner out with our family on our way to Atlanta and it was a Gem! We loved it. The staff was welcoming. Nick, our server was helpful with dinner recommendations and the food was delicious. We will stop by again on our next visit to Chatlotte.

Our food was good but when it was delivered it was barely warm. We sent it back and the server couldn't have been nicer about it. When it came back out it was much better and server handled it well without making us feel bad for sending it back

300 is so charming. I really like the decor, the outdoor patio, the coziness. The food is always good, but I eat here so often that I forget that the sweet potato ravioli and the fall salad are AMAZING. My only complaint was the loud rap music in the background. It wasn't even holiday season rap music. I just didn't get it.

I hate to be critical but I have to be honest - I was a bit disappointed in the food at 300 East. I had the lamb ragout and the flavor was overwhelmed with cinnamon (or cloves). I'm not sure which but it was not at all what I had hoped for. My wife had the crab cake (only 1 came on her dish) and it was also unimpressive.
The ambience is wonderful (lots of little light) and our waiter Edward was really excellent which saved the entire experience for me.
I may come back again but it will likely be a while.

Great food. I went for brunch and loved it. The brunch menu is awesome. Great family atmosphere or girls weekend catch-up. Food and customer service was amazing. It's one of my fav brunch spots now. I've even made friends with the regular customers.

The food was outstanding as usual and made up for the lousy service. We started with the baked goat cheese, which was fabulous. I highly recommend the hanger steak. It is always cooked perfectly and the sauce is exquisite. My husband loved the bacon wrapped filet. As far as the service, it was bad from the moment we walked in the door. We were greeted as if we were an annoyance. We waited a very long time at the bar for anyone to make eye contact with us and when our table was finally ready, we were crammed in the tiny upstairs dining area between a big column and two large parties. The waiter was overwhelmed. No explanation of specials, no water, did not bring enough appetizer plates, brought the wrong drinks, rushed us through, etc. Will I come back? Absolutely. The food is that good. We'll take our usual cozy seat at the back of the bar.

300 East has been a favorite for many, many years. The varied menu offers something for everyone, and the upstairs seating is especially cozy and quiet (if somewhat dimly-lit). Excellent vegetarian options and incredible desserts!

The food is amazing every time I dine here. I have never had a bad meal. Oddly, on my last visit the grits were cold when they arrived but they remedied that right away. I dine here weekly. You won't regret it. Ask for Jody. She is amazing! Get the Matilda Wong or on Wednesday get the 1/2 price bottle of wine. The moscata is delicious.
