Had great food and great waitress. Kitchen was slow with my main dish. Served by the manager who comped the dish. Enjoyed the experience and would go back. Since I booked via open table they had my cell phone #, so when I left a book at the table they called me immediately to let me know it was forgotten.

Have been to WP Kitchen several times before and always very good. Things were not up to par on this outing with a few things were not great but, not worth sending back. Cold fries on one meal and the charcuterie board was really off and poor quality. While disappointed, we will still be back.

Atmosphere was nice- a little dark but cozy- waitstaff was knowledgeable and very friendly. We went for Restaurant Week and ate way too much. Portions were large but oh so tasty. I would go back again during a non-event because the food was really good!

Was here during restaurant week to celebrate a birthday. We all were pretty satisfied with our meals. The best appetizer we had gotten was the potato chip bleu cheese fondue. We all tastes that and it was great. Entrees were ok. Desserts were ok. For a special occasion we may come back here

The food selection was excellent. We were there for restaurant week. The waitress Hailey was superb. On point with food suggestions. The manager also came over to our table to see how the service was. Overall rating 6 stars!!

What a great dining experience!!
The service and food were both exceptional, and the input/recommendations from the staff and management were great!! This was one of those meals you hope & pray for, because they generally happen so seldom
I will always make WP a MUST when visiting Charlotte in the future!!!!!
What a great evening and look forward to visiting again in March

This was absolutely horrifying!!! Do not waste your money. We asked for no salt and there was huge amounts of salt and even in the dry, non-molten, molten chocolate cake. The manager discounted the meal but after talking to her twice and her replacement there was still a $62 bill and the only thing worth having was the Pinot Noir and I don't even drink red wine! This was pathetic to still charge for the meal in any way, shape or form. We barely ate anything and left hungry. The best that anyone offered is if we returned they would take care of us. This was their chance and they blew it. We won't be back. We even left two coupons we got in the mail today that weren't needed since we did Restaurant week instead. We "x"ed them out so no one else would try to use them and have this terrible situation. The server was just not good, the manager didn't identify herself and not nearly enough was done about the whole experience. STAY AWAY!!! GO ACROSS THE WAY TO "THE PALM" OR DOWN THE STREET TO "DEL FRISCOS".
BTW the wine cost $15 extra!!!

We have eaten here twice recently, once for lunch and once for dinner. We enjoyed the fresh wood-oven baked pizzas with great crusts, and an innovative apple salad. They have a nice selection of beers and wines, and their house wine is quite nice. The bar was busy and seemed to have a nice variety of drinks as well. The entrées were all nicely prepared and everyone was very happy with their choices. The prices are reasonable, the ambience is cozy and somewhat rustic, but comfortable. We definitely recommend this restaurant!

Our dining experience was fantastic! Every dish we had was excellent. Service was respectful, prompt, and very knowledgeable about their dinner and wine menu. We had our children with us and felt very comfortable having a family dining experience. We will definitely dine here again.

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.

Solid dining experience and everyone in the group was pleased with their meal. Portions are rather large and prices reasonable for the quality/quantity. Beers were a bit much at $8-9 for the local drafts, though. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with WP Kitchen and plan to visit again soon!

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 ...
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.
