I really love the service. 1/7/2013

I really love the service that the people of this place give to the customers. They are so prompt and very friendly. The food is great too and deserves second servings. more

Elegant and accommodating 9/21/2011

Our family of 3 enjoyed Carpe Diem for dinner. Not only did my husband and I enjoy the beautiful decore, attentive service and delicious food and wine, but our 7 yr old son found it a memorable night. Although it is not intended to cater to children, the staff accommodated our son by improvising a chicken breast into "chicken fingers" with mashed potatoes. Our son felt it to be a coming-of-age experience while my husband and I enjoyed dinner out in a lovely restaurant. And we prefer the pricing to many of the fashionable restaurants in Uptown. I can't wait to go back! more

Great food, beautiful restaurant! 7/8/2011

The food never fails to wow! The decor is fabulous! I really have a hard time finding faults! You can come in and order an "old favorite" like the warm goat cheese salad or the buttermilk fried chicken OR pick from their ever changing menu items! There is something there for everyone...even my young children enjoy it! more

love 10/21/2010

Can't express my undying love for this restaurant in words. The service...the atmosphere...but most of all, the chicken. Oh, the chicken! more

Awsome Place 5/21/2010

Great! 1/19/2010

Great place to go for dinner and drinks in downtown charlotte. It is kind of pricey but well worth it! more

Very friendly and great food 12/15/2009

I went to Carpe Diem for the first time and was very pleased. They were more than accommodating when we asked to move tables to the back room, even though we know it can be annoying since we are in the restaurant industry. Our server, Angeli, was delightful and made the whole experience even better. The best part is that the menu has something for everyone...fish, red meat, fried chicken (gourmet style of course), light, and heavy dishes. I love when an upscale place can prepare something like fried chicken to perfection, and it still fit the upscale style! I highly recommend this restaurant. Pros: Something for everyone at the table more

"Carpe Diem did not seize the day" follow up 1/25/2009

This is a follow up to my previous review "Carpe Diem did not sieze the day." While our experiences here were not what I had hoped, I was pleased to receive an e-mail of apology from one of the owners. This is definitely service at a high level. Most places would have let this go and figured it was just one customer lost. It also leads me to believe that our night may have been an isolated experience and would be willing to possibly come back in the future. Pros: food Cons: service more

Great place! Will be going back with the girls 1/6/2009

For my birthday, my girlfriends decided to take me to a bar for appetizers before a night on the town. We were completely surprised to find that the bar was closed on a Monday night. While trying to figure out what to do, we noticed Carpe Diem was down the street and headed over to check out the appetizer menu. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that they were running half price appetizers until a certain point in the evening. i had always heard that they were a pit pricey so half price appetizers are considered a good thing.The appetizer menu was fabulous. No chicken fingers or potato skins for this place. We were able to choose from a fantastic cheese plate (St. Andre and daily cheese served with pears, grapes, dried fruit, crackers, cornichons, and a carmelized onion-garlic compote) , Cremini Mushroom Tart \r , calamari, Mediterranean plate (grilled chicken kabobs, lemon hummus, olives, and grilled pita bread ), Thai Beef Carpaccio and a few other goodies that I can't remember. more

Good Place! 1/6/2009

Excellent food and many choices that sound great, plus some nightly specials. Loved the ambiance and the service was attentive. Very nice atmosphere!! more

Great Restaurant 4/7/2008

Carpe Diem is an old Charlotte classic. It has a very local patronage. The food is always wonderful, and the wait staff is very courteous and helpful. A little on the pricey side but still in sync with its competitors. more

Never Disappointed 3/11/2008

I have been going to Carpe Diem for years but only since it arrived at its current location on Elizabeth. It is my favorite birthday and New Year's Eve restaurant and that is saying something because I have eaten just about everywhere. I am a vegetarian, my husband is a meat eater and we both love the food. I always have plenty of menu options and that is rare for a vegetarian! It is a little more expensive that Pewter Rose but definitely along the same theme. They have one of the coolest bars in Charlotte but you will only find adults drinking here. If the idea of another boring steakhouse puts you to sleep and you are ready to spend $100+ for a dinner for two, don't hesitate to try it! more

casually elegant and never stuffy 7/9/2006

We have followed this restaurant from one location to another for almost a decade. It is still one of my all time favorites. The menu is always interesting and the service is friendly and professional. The food is always prepared well and presentations are lovely without being over-wrought with trendiness. The little sorbet palate cleanser is a nice touch ignored by every other restaurant of this caliber in town. more
