Came across Soul while seeking late night dining options in Charlotte. The location is in a very hip part of town that has numerous bars and dining options. Should itself is above an art gallery. I loved the atmosphere at Soul...kind of that old brick warehouse feel with the perfect blend of luxury and rustic. The food I found to... More

We sat in one of the three booths inside. Very small restaurant but worth the wait. Make sure to get there at opening if you want to sit inside cause they will be busy! Great tapas and sushi! Very glad we had a friend pick this for us! Also service was great and very knowledgeable!

Food is no better than any other pricey tapas bar in Charlotte. More of a drinking atmosphere than a dinner stop. Drinks were great, food was average. We didn't try any sushi or Asian cuisine; so, I can't comment on that. We did have chicken skin chips with pimento cheese and pickled okra which tasted a lot like gourmet pork... More

My husband and I visited friends in Charlotte and we had pre-dinner cocktails at soul. They were absolutely delicious!! I highly recommend this place for good food and excellent cocktails. Their menu is extensive and wonderful.

Ramen bowl is not to be compared to ramen noodle soup. This version is fatty, creamy and begs for some broth. Noodle is very large, not what you'll find in traditional ramen kitchens. Sakana sushi roll is fishy both in smell and taste. The end of the roll was filled with something resembling a mix between salmon insulating fat and... More

Came with a work colleague on a Monday evening and we sat at the bar for a terrific meal of tapas and terrific mixed drinks. The menu ranges from BBQ to Greek dips, Sushi, Flatbreads, Ceviche, including fried Brussel sprouts with Bacon. The dessert, a warm chocolate brioche with miso ice cream, was big enough for two at $6, however,... More

We ate here while staying in Plaza Midwood because it was recommended by waiters at other, nearby restaurants. We ate on the outside deck with heat lamps and plastic sheeting to stay warm and dry. The food was unusual and delicious. The service was very friendly and personable. To add to our experience, there was a severe thunder and lightning... More

You must try this place! After reading all the reviews that talked about the long wait I had the good fortune of a rainy Sunday night with a playoff football game (no TVs) so I made the thirty minute drive from my hotel for the last meal of my trip. So glad I did! Had a super nice guy seat... More

A gem of a place for great tapas and service. The entry was a little awkward- the curtain at the top of the stairs was pulled closed and zipped, but we muscled our way in. Very intimate spot. Everything we ordered was shared and delicious- Greek salad, tuna skewers, chicken skewers...I will be back, sooner than later.

Thank Amy H
