300 East Ratings and Reviews
Service was terrible throughout the entire meal. We had to consistently ask for drinks to be refilled. Plates took for ever to be cleared. The server forgot to bring things to the table several times. Server would disappear for long periods of time. The food was room temperature. The pheasant was very dry. Dropped $130+ dollars that night. We even complained to the staff at the end of the meal and they just looked at us. No response at all. Will NEVER go back.
My fiancé and I went here for our valentines dinner date and 300 East exceeded every expectation! They had a set menu for the evening with three courses and everything amazing! We are still talking about the good days later. The service was terrific as well, our waiter was very friendly and made sure we were well taken care of. Overall great experience, looking forward to going back.
My husband and I got to sneak away for a rare date night and this was just what we needed. Our waiter was terrific and had some great recommendations from the wine list. Half-price bottles of wine are a good way to go on Sunday. Had we wanted a fun cocktail or a craft beer, 300 East is good for those as well. We started with the goat cheese, sun dried tomato and garlic appetizer (served hot with toasted bread). It was simple, fresh, and very good (a must IMO). My husband had the duck, with a side of kale. He might as well have licked the plate as he liked it a lot (though would have preferred it without the cherries). I enjoyed the roast chicken, mashed potatoes, and perfectly cooked green beans. House made desserts were worth every calorie. 300 East isn't fancy, with it's oilcloth covered tables, but if great food and an unfussy atmosphere are what you're looking for, you won't be disappointed. Yum!
We have loved our previous experiences at 300 East, but we were disappointed this time. The steak we ordered medium to medium-well was very red, the pizza crust was burned, and the meal took a long time to be delivered to the table. It was also very loud and tight seating. The onion soup and sweet potato ravioli were delicious.
I took two out of town clients to 300 for lunch and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The Waitress was knowledgeable & attentive. Our food came out quickly and was delicious. All of the ingredients were fresh and well-presented. I had half unsweet/half sweet tea and the waitress cheerfully refilled my glass from two pitchers. She also happily boxed my leftovers for me - a nice touch. 300 is located in a very charming old home in the Dilworth Section of Charlotte - great ambience. 300 never disappoints.
My wife and I were out and about and decided we should grab dinner somewhere. This place kept popping up towards the top of the lists we browsed for ideas. We made a reservation and headed that way.
First opinion based on appearance:
Nice place with some homey feels.
A little tight space wise but not uncomfortable.
Second opinion based on the hostess:
Polite hostess who promptly took us to our seat.
Overall service opinion:
Our waitress was sweet and took good care of us.
Opinion based on food and drink:
My wife had the fillet and seemed to enjoy it.
I had the half chicken and it made me feel like I was prepping for a competition; bland, dry, uneventful chicken paired with equally boring vegetables. Woo, exciting.
I got a drink I thought would be decent with the bourbon they used but it ended up being watered down soda water. No bite at all and certainly a weak pour. Boo!
Overall, decent place for sitting and talking but food and drink made it a one hit bummer that we won't be returning to or recommending.
First experience there! It was someplace I'd always wanted to try and we really enjoyed it. Small menu but all of it was wonderful. It's a little loud because it's an old house and tables are somewhat close together. We were glad we made reservations! I also was pleasantly surprised with the price. I thought it was quite reasonable for the entrees.
I had the bronzed sesame salmon which was a little overcooked for my taste. Also wished there were more vegetable options (not starch) to replace the spinach. My husband had the shrimp BLT which he liked. Overall it was a good value - but food was of average quality.
Decided to try for Restaurant Week. The choices for this were really good. There were 4 of us so we tried all 4 appetizers. A glass of wine came with the Prix Fixe menu too. Goat cheese w/bread (everyone's favorite), salad, shrimp and grits (only 2 shrimp) and hummus. For the entree 3 of us tried the Hanger Steak-awesome. One the chicken. Dessert. 3 of us had the brownie w/ice cream and whipped cream and one had the Carrot Cheesecake. Both were good. The regular menu looks good too. Will go again. Reminds me of Cajun Queen atmosphere-quaint house in neighborhood. Our waitress was very attentive too.
Had a good time for first time, besides taking 15 minutes to come and take our order after we asked for a couple more minutes since we never been there and waited at least 45min between our first dish and entree because or waiter forgot to put the order in. Wasn't overly impressed for having to wait so long for our main dish they provided us with a free glass of wine. Guess it was better then nothing. For a upscale restraunt let me add would think the table clothes would be clothed not plastic but overall everything was decent
We enjoyed our meals, but were a bit disappointed with then as well. My husband and I celebrated my birthday there in 2011 and fell in love with the flavor creations from the chef; however this time (for our mom's birthday) the half chicken entree lacked flavor (bland) and was very dry.
The food was phenomenal and the cocktails paired nicely. The ambience was perfect for a date or evening out with friends. I gave only three stars for service because the server made the meal feel rushed, resulting in my date and I moving to the bar to get cocktails, but the service at the bar was impeccable.
