Fahrenheit - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews

This past Saturday was a friends birthday so we had a four o'clock reservation. We were glad to have picked that time because the crowd picked up quickly after five. Beautiful view from the restaurant. The appetizer we chose was the wood grilled avocado. I would order it again, it was quite tasty. My choice for the entree was the Maine diver scallops and the scallops were good. Obviously there was something I did not understand about the way the Brussels sprouts are prepared because they were hard as rocks. I would like to try the Sunday brunch.

Wow, talk about a LOT of hype for a huge let down. I thought we would be dining on the roof but there were, in fact, no tables for dining on the roof. Not even that there weren't any available: no tables, period. The roof was accessible to bar patrons only. I couldn't hear my friend sitting across the the table from me; my medium rare filet arrived cold with a deeply cold, raw center; we could not get a water refill throughout the meal; and our meals arrived without utensils. For a $200 meal for two (including one cocktail), the buzz surrounding this place was a lot of smoke but no fire. Spend $200 somewhere else.

Took my girlfriend for her birthday on Friday night. The earliest reservation we could get was 9:15pm but there was no wait once we arrived. The bar area was extremely noisy with a wedding party celebrating but once we arrived at our seats the noise was acceptable. We ordered the Salmon (medium rare) and bone in Porkchop (medium). The Salmon was excellent. I attempted to substitute my side for another and was informed it would be a 10.00 upcharge. I thought that was ridiculous and declined. My girlfriend ordered the Porkchop and it was extremely overcooked. The outside was charred and burned while the inside was not tender and juicy. Due to the late time and wait for the food we decided not to send it back and just ate it. The free birthday cheesecake slice was the best part of the evening. Overall, the food is below average to poor and what you're really paying for is the view which is beautiful at night. My advice: go eat somewhere with great food and much better prices then take an elevator up another building to get the same view.

The food was poor, I had the Lobster Mac & Cheese and the dish was drenched in grease and the portions sizes were small for the price. There bar tender did a great job with our drinks and our waiter did an outstanding job.

Very disappointed in this place as my fist time there to take customers at a trade show for business dinner. Had previously been to Luce, Blue, and Mimosa Grill for customer dinners the same week and they were all wonderful. The menu here was strange with food being just so-so. The problem was the room was very HOT (felt like 80) and most of us were sweating through dinner. The waiter kept apologizing and the manager admitted that they had waited too long to lower the temp. We would have one course and then all go outside to cool off. Then back in to sweat some more. I would have believed their story about the temp except another friend said he'd been there 3 days earlier and had the same bad experience of the restaurant being extremely hot, and they gave him the same excuse. With other great dining options in CLT, I would personally avoid this place.

The table that we were sat in was miserably hot we were sweating the whole time we were having our dinner ...it was terrible.
I had out of town guests that I was entertaining we wanted to sit on the rooftop...I made a reservation but instead we were stuck in a corner of the restaurant, and again it was miserably hot... I was so embarrassed.

Excellent service. The ac was out and we roasted! I have a heart condition , and it made my birthday dinner hot!
Loved our waiter. Appetizer was very good. Loved the bread, and free birthday dessert. My shrimp and grits were horrible to look at.
I had four shrimp and sent it back. My husband said it salmon was fair. Over priced.
Very loud and we weren't exspecting that. Great view. My mohitos were the best I ever tasted! We would only go back for drinks. Very poor dessert menu! Loved valet service option. Beautiful view of the QC.

Fahrenheit is a great spot with excellent food, service, and atmosphere. I have found few places with a better atmosphere. Outdoor bar on the 21st floor affords superb views of Uptown Charlotte. Food prices are in line with other upscale restaurants in the area. Drinks however, are significantly overpriced. I had a drink at the bar that would normally be $11-12 in higher end restaurants and it was $15 at Fahrenheit. I ordered the identical drink in the restaurant and it was priced at $17? I pointed out the discrepancy to our server who got it corrected but I wonder how many times this happens and nobody notices. In spite of that, I'd recommend it.

They forgot our appetizer and I requested and even reminded them about my boyfriends birthday and they forgot. I had to fake going to the bathroom to REMIND them for the 3rd time.
Would NOT recommend for any special occasion. Too pricey.

The view amazing but I wasn't thrilled to be in their restaurant. It took over 10 minutes for my waitress to come to my table and I don't even remember her name, let alone if she even introduced herself. She didn't ask if I had been there before. I had the banana bread waffles which were bland--I expected more. The chicken I had with it was really good. The waitress in another section had more energy than mine did. This restaurant has been hyped up over the view it has, however the food doesn't meet the hype. My waitress also didn't let me know that I needed to validate my $10 parking on the way out with the hostess that was very nice.
This is one place that isn't on my list to come back and visit.

Been to Fahrenheit several times. Generally always had a good time. It was my wife's birthday weekend and she loves brunch. We heard that Fahrenheit had a brunch and we decided to try it out. I made my reservation through Open Table and requested a romantic seat with a good view. Considering the way the restaurant is laid out and the fact that our reservation was for when they opened, this should not have been a problem. However, this was not honored. The seated us directly in front of a pillar which did obstruct our view. In addition, we were seated next to other people. Normally, I would not object at all. However, we had requested a romantic seat with a good view. While I could have requested to move, I did not want to disrupt the meal for my wife. Overall, the food was very good and we received a lot of food. It was still pricey, but good. My wife was very satisfied with her meal. I honestly did not like my meal. However, this was my fault. I ordered Banana Nut Bread Waffles and chicken. I typically LOVE chicken and waffles. I was disappointed, though. I don't hold this against the restaurant. I don't like Banana Nut bread so I should have known better. My wife encouraged me to "try it", though. I shouldn't have... The chicken was good, though. I was very disappointed in the service. It was not very attentive. The big issue was that another server explained to the people behind us that they had a frittata special. It sounded really good and certainly would have been what I ordered. However, we were never told the specials by our server. By the time we heard the special - we already had our food.
Disappointed in the service and disappointed in the fact that they did not honor our requests for a romantic seat with a good view.
Overall, we still really do like Fahrenheit. The food is good and the atmosphere is great.
I am sure we will try it again, but I will be more precise about seating and picky with ordering.

Great atmosphere! However, it was out of several ingredients for signature drinks. I had to order drinks three times, only to settle for a red wine. Additionally, the food was out exceptionally fast - before we received our drinks - which gave the appearance that it was pre-cooked and sitting in a warmer. I will be back, but not for the dining experience.

We brought our out of town friends to Fahrenheit to enjoy the view and the atmosphere. We had an excellent time, dinner was fabulous, didn't wait long for drinks or food even though we were dining at their busiest hour. 10/10 recommend the tempura rock shrimp and the glazed salmon. We were a little disappointed the entire left and right sides of the rooftop were blocked off for a private party but we know that just happened by coincidence. Otherwise, my boyfriend and I always have a great time here.

Amazing view of downtown/uptown Charlotte. Outdoor drinks but wasn't set up for dining. Limited menu and from those selections 2 options were not available. Also their signature drinks leave a lot to be desired, more ice than flavor.

This was my fifth visit and ,as usual, it was great. I enjoy the view, the food, and the excellent service. I will return, so continue to offer good service. One thing to add would be coupons for returning customers.

I have been to Rocco Whalen's restaurant in Cleveland many times and always enjoy the creative offerings. The view of city from restaurant is great. Very energetic bar and outdoor seating area. Food was well done as usual. Only complaint was we sat in smaller dining area away from open kitchen and the noise level was just too much to even think let alone have a conversation. This was due to two groups of 12 mostly men that do not care about restaurant etiquette. Asked to move to other dining area where you have the open kitchen which I think would have offset the noise a little because you expect a vibrant area where all action is going on.

You can't beat the view and location of Fahrenheit but you will pay heavily. The food is just ok. I had the Ahi Tuna which lacked any flavor. The CHARLOTTE Nachos are a must. My mother had the shirt ribs and they were ok. The teriyaki noodles that came with the ribs were much too sweet. I understand the high prices for the view and location but the food should rank highly as well.

The restaurant has a fabulous view and it is a hot spot for people. The food was decent but a bit pricey. I would recommend this place for a drink and appetizers or a late night visit. Our biggest issue was the lack of good service. Our food was brought in at different times and my husband had to get his second glass of wine at the bar. I hope they improve this service because it is a neat location.

Our first visit was above our expectations. It was for a birthday and we timed our reservation to catch the sunset off the 21st floor. The outside patio is large enough to accommodate all for viewing. The food was delicious and gourmet. There are less expensive choices such as pizza and mixing appetizers to keep the bill lower if you choose. I had read the service staff was less than notable, but our well informed server was on top of everything from start to finish. Well worth the price for any special occasional or memorable date night.

I've heard the view and the service is worth going, however, the quality of the food was NOT worth it and I totally agree. $120 bill for a med rare steak that we couldn't chew and a piece of salmon that fit inside palm of my hand. Will never go back

The service was terrible. For a restaurant of that caliber I would have expected much better service. Not only was the food mediocre but I found a hair in my food. When the waitress brought out the bill we saw that we were still being charged for the entree and had to ask to have it removed. Was very disappointed with the experience overall.

Our first visit (for a birthday dinner) and we were not disappointed, even as the hurricane passed by! From the valet parking to the rooftop views and the exquisite menu choices, everything was top notch. The only downsides were a nearby table not knowing how to act and the dessert saying Happy Anniversary instead of Birthday.
We will definitely be back for another special occasion!

Fun atmosphere & fantastic view. Who doesn't like fire?! The calamari was delightful. The scallops were tasty but the accompanying sauce was a tad sweet & the cauliflower purée was very purée'd. The filet was also nice. Typical steak n potatoes but we've had better meals for less. You're certainly paying extra for the ambiance. Would go back again, but feel no compelling reason to, except perhaps for a few drinks.

Service was attentive and timely. We really enjoyed the scenery and the fireplace outside. Every table was full but there was still room to move around. The members of my party swooned with the wonderful taste of the food. The wasabi mashed potatoes had just a hint of wasabi in them, enough to taste but not overwhelmingly spicy. The surprise birthday recognition was a very thoughtful end to the experience! I would recommend Fahrenheit-Charlotte to anyone who's looking for a quality dining experience!
