My brother, his wife, their ten-year old and I visited Charlotte primarily to see a soccer match (the kid is an avid fan, and Bayern Munich was playing AC Milan). We chose the Hilton Center City, not having thought much about restaurants inside it, as the area is packed with places to eat. But it was a very hot day,... More

I ordered take out while staying at the Hilton and was pleased with my order. The service I received while ordering and picking up my food was good. I ordered by Mediterranean plate and salad and both were tasty and were a good size for the price.

We were super excited that the Coastal Kitchen & Bar stayed open till 1am! We got back to our hotel from a concert around Midnight and all of us were hungry.. rather than searching through a City we had never been to, we were able to eat at the hotel and it was delicious! Definitely recommend the Flatbeards .. although... More

We stopped in for appetizers and cocktails. Martinis mixed and served very well. We shared the flatbreads and fried calamari/rock shrimp. Everyone was satisfied, better than average bar food. Servers were very attentive.

Hostess warned us the food would be slow in the first 10 seconds. Well, drinks took forever after we sat there for 10 mims to even place our order. Server checked on us but overall food, drinks, service were slow. Manager walked by us no less than 20 times, she never stopped to ask how we were doing. Disappointment!

The service was extremely slow-30 minute wait for sandwiches and fries. Our food was not good, the fries were under cooked and the BLT had no flavor. We also ordered a quesadilla with chicken which we received with out chicken. Our waitress was the only one on the floor and she was running her butt off as best she could,... More

Ate here after a 12 hours day at the convention center. While the restaurant was understaffed, only one waitress that night, food came out quick and she did a good job of covering over 8 tables. Only negative was the taps were broken for the 4 nights we were there. Would have been nice to try a local beer on... More

Better than average hotel eatery. Breakfast buffet is very good and usually quiet in the mornings. Good option without leaving hotel

The restaurant is very conveniently located inside the Hilton City Center and right outside of the light rail stop. The lunch buffet is great and themed each day. The bar scene is awesome and a favorite for locals and travelers. There is also a nice large fountain right outside the building to enjoy more of the city's culture after your... More
