WP Kitchen + Bar - Charlotte Ratings and Reviews

I have been to WP several times for drinks and/or dinner, but this was my first time for lunch. I found the menu underwhelming for lunch: a few salads and pizzas, a sandwich or two, but still pretty heavy on, well, heavy food like pasta. It didn't seem that different from a dinner menu and definitely wasn't much different in price - other than non-meat salads, entrees were close to or over $20, a bit high for lunch. The food is ample and excellent, however.

Had a nice experience at the WP kitchen for Charlotte Queens Feast. The whole menu was available for $30 a person and 3 courses. The calamari was great and came with 2 kinds of dipping sauce. The cesaer salad was pretty large, pre-mixed and great. We were a little surprised by the small amount of entrees on the menu. They had many pizza and burgers options but only a few actual entrees. I had the trout dinner which was kind of boring. My wife had the Linguini Fradiavlo which was great. Slightly spicy with ample shrimp and mussels. The desserts were a good size and pretty good as well. We had the molten chocolate cake and apple crumble. Both served with ice cream. All in all a nice, slightly upscale atmosphere in S. Park. Prices were a little on the high side for everyday eating out in our opinion.

A fun night with friends ! After seeing a movie, we had reservations and were seated upon arrival. From the hostess to the waitress to the servers - EVERYONE was very friendly and had wonderful attitudes ! We all tried specialty cocktails which were very good. Next we had the truffle/blue cheese potato chips and peppers as appetizers. All were great, except one of us wished the peppers were a little more spicey. Next we ordered, pizzas, crab cakes and cheese board. I had the mushroom/spinach pizza and I loved it . We would all go back again. My only request would be to turn down the level of music. It was hard to hear the other two people across the table.

All pretty good - more filling than expected. Calamari a touch underdone - coating not crispy. Pepperoni pizza crust a bit soggy but very tasty. Should provide red pepper flakes & parmesan cheese without having to ask. Octopus was perfect. How do they run out of an Italian Malbec by the glass early on a Friday night?

We have tried WP Kitchen a few times and have decided that pizza is the best thing on the menu. The pastas are not creative, my butternut squash soup tasted like it was from a grocery store line, and our appetizer was almost cold. They quickly brought another appetizer and it was very good, but everything else was ordinary. Cocktails were great, service was good, wine list is expensive and limited.

WP has become a favorite go to spot bit Monday night was a huge disappointing event. Not a busy evening yet our food (table of 6) came out all at different times. Crab cakes, usually my favorite, were cold. Apple salad was fabulous as usual. Our gelato and sorbet choices were not available. Apple crisp ordered by 2 at our table seemed to be canned apples covered by granola with the vanilla sorbet being only saving grace. Server never told us of kithen issues but the problems were non-stop. Our out of town guests were underwhelmed.

First off I'm knock 1 star off because the restaurant was 1/2 full on a Wednesday night, I made a reservation, we were well dressed AND they tried to seat us in the first high-top table next to the door by the bar (a.k.a. Worst seat in the place). Beyond that, the service was excellent and the food was very good.

The food was great and service was great for the most part. I had the Southpark Sour drink to start with.It is Jim Beam, maple, sage & lemon. I have a great sense of taste but cold not taste maple. Basically jim beam & lemon with tiny chunks of sage that were unappealing.A manager stopped by asking about how I liked the drink. I commented that it was not to my taste and she was basically like 'oh well have a nice night". What? First, strain the drink and then put a sage leaf garnish on top. I was pulling tiny pieces of sage out of my mouth at the dinner table. Classy! I finally asked our server if she could ask them to put a little more maple in it because I could not taste it AT ALL. She brought it back and it was great. So I'm happy to not waste $13 for a drink that wasn't good but still can't believe the manager (or whoever) walked away without asking what was wrong with the drink.
My husband had the weiner snitzel and loved it. I had the turkey burger and it was also very good. It was charbroiled, not fried on a griddle. For all beef burger lovers, I think you would really enjoy it. My husband took a bite and had a look of surprise on his face b/c it did not taste like turkey burgers as he expected.
Overall we love the atmosphere and food and USUALLY the service is great. The only fault in service this night was not from our server, she was great, but from the manager on duty. We love this place though and will be back. Oh for parents, somehow this is very kid friendly even though it's also a great night out for adults. They pull it all together between both of those better than any other restaurant I've been too. It's pretty impressive.

We have lived in Charlotte years and just discovering this great restaurant. I really like the half sandwich and salad idea. Many restaurants are serving small plates and this is like a small plate. We went 2 days in a row and will be back.
