300 East Ratings and Reviews

Wife and I went for Saturday lunch and were seated upstairs in a booth which provided more privacy and quiet. The server was very pleasant. Wife had a shrimp BLT that she enjoyed very much. I had the hanger steak sandwich. The meat itself was delicious but still a bit tough to pull apart; the big disappointment was the very large, rather dry roll that overwhelmed the meat and topping. Overall we were pleased with the lunch and plan to return, as the menu was interesting.

My sisters and I very much enjoyed our meal celebrating one of their birthday. Two of us had been there previously and enjoyed it so we returned and were not disappointed. The food is well prepared and done to perfection. I love the ambience. It's like dining in someone's home.

My husband and I were quite disappointed in our evening at 300 East. We chose it as the place to celebrate my birthday and invited a friend to join in the celebration. We were seated on the second floor, the majority of which was taken up with a very loud group. They were so noisy that the three of us, in our booth, could not hear each other speak. The food was pricey - my Harvest Salad was $11 and it was the size of a side sald for lunch. And the queso which was listed on the menu and which I discussed with the server was not on the salad. Also, we did not receive, nor were we offered any bread. Our server often ignored us, as she was busy with the boisterous crowd that was seated in the open. My birthday celebration was ruined . . . we will not be back!

Our first time back to 300 East in a while and the food, service and ambiance were excellent. We had a great meal with excellent wine. Our server was great and watched over us very well without being a bother. We had a great time and would highly recommend 300 East.

Went for our 24th Anniversary after looking a several different restaurant menus. Chose 300 East because the menu was different enough to offer variety but not so different as to make the decision difficult. The food truly was outstanding especially for the price and what we most appreciated was that meal portions were perfect; neither of us would have felt "stuffed" if we hadn't indulged in a dessert. Service was good; attentive without stalking and informed/ responsive to menu inquiries. Our only dissatisfaction was the din. We were upstairs, on the railing overlooking the first level and felt like noise was ricocheting at us from both levels. In the restaurant's defense - Americans are truly loud-mouthed, especially, it seems, when they go out.

Wife had steak with gorgonzola. She said it was great. My crab cake was great. My shrimp and grits were not good at all. Very bland and shrimp tasted like tap water??? Huh? Service was good but she never refilled our drinks.
Overall (service, food, cost) it was slightly better than OK. If I could I would give it 3.5 stars but not an option.

We went for brunch and I must say, it was good food. This may not sound like an important detail for some but all of the plates in our table included eggs and all of them were perfectly cooked. I had scramble eggs, which I wanted soft and they were just perfect. The other people in the table ordered dishes with poached eggs and not one bit of their yolks was cooked. As for the rest, I loved the brioche french toast I ordered, and my friends had a dish that was like a twist from your typical Eggs Benedict. It had an orange (mild) flavored hollandaise and brussel sprouts and it was delicious! Great spot for brunch!

We came here on another occasion and liked it so much that we brought a couple who just moved to Charlotte. They enjoyed the food and the ambiance as much as we did on our first visit. Creative menu, excellent service and reasonable prices in acharming location!

Awesome venue-old house converted into a restaurant. Overall, the food was tasty. The guacamole was very good, but I was expecting more from the sweet potato ravioli. Everyone enjoyed their main dishes. Excellent beer and wine list including local favorites.

Food is outstanding. Minor complaint. Upon arrival the hostess was sitting at the bar and after waiting a bit I had to get her attention as she was on her phone. She appeared annoyed when seating us and gave us a lunch menu. Our reservations were for 5pm, passed lunch time and she then made a snarky remark "well, lunch just ended".... and grabbed us dinner menus. She appeared very bothered. Everyone else was great. Waitress Ms. Nasta was awesome.

Found this spot last fall and enjoyed it. So much so that we asked my bother to meet us here for lunch while we were in Charlotte for a few days. Nice atmosphere in a converted home...very cool. We were all looking forward to this. My brother was a bit late for our 12:30 reservation so we waited at the bar. The bartender was outstanding. Quite helpful with local craft beers and offered tastes. Handled other customers, the wait staff and also found time to polish the mirror on the back bar chatting with us as he did so.
We sat down for a late lunch. We ordered the goat cheese, dried tomato and garlic appetizer. It was left in the oven far too long, the goat cheese broke. It was a curdled mess of goat cheese slimy dried tomatoes and olive oil. It was so hot that I burned my mouth. The lunch was nothing special. I ordered the steak sandwich with an horseradish cream sauce on an onion roll. huge roll, some meat and it was just OK. Came with a side of black beans that were also nothing special. my brother said that the pasta and veggie salad was "tasteless". My wife had the crab cake (remembered fondly from our last trip) and it was overwhelmed buy a huge bun. As she cannot remember her side we both agree that it was uneventful. Too bad.

Took our friends from out-of-state for their first 300 East experience on their second night in Charlotte. Throughout their visit, they kept raving about the Sweet Potato Ravioli and pork loin special. Our waitress was hospitable and provided great recommendations to the newcomers as well as myself, who frequents the restaurant often. 300 East is a local gem, great for special occassions or if you're wanting to impress your out-of-town friends.

We really enjoyed our meal from start to finish. Our server, Matthew, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Our drinks were tasty, as were our appetizers and entrees. We split desserts -- they were good, but not our highlight. It was a fun night. We will be back!

My date is from the north east and had not tried Pimento cheese yet, so that was a must for a starter, it was a hit. However I think it could be paired with better crackers than saltine like ones (Personal Preference).
I had the Seared Ahi Tuna Salad and it was wonderful.
He had the Hanger Steack Sandwich and cleaned his plate.
Only negative was a few fruit flies kept buzzing around our table.
