It may be small (only a bit more than 30 seats), but the food is always tops. The staff has barely turned over in years (they must love the food too), and they deliver great service in an intimate setting. The menu changes seasonally. But the best items stay throughout the year. Try the pastas for a bit of a... More

Dinner last Saturday with my wife demonstrated again that Barrington's remains at the top of Charlotte's restaurants. The service, menu variety, food preparation, and wine list were excellent. The pea soup appetizer was full of flavor, and the duck entree was superb. Chocolate lava cake topped off the dinner. Pleasantly, one of their featured wines, a Cote du Rhone priced... More

Location, location, locale. Food was well executed and service was good, albeit somewhat familiar for a higher end restaurant. The only real issue is ambience. It just lacks the atmosphere to justify the price - no other way to really express it. In better surroundings, this would warrant 5 stars.

We needed a special place to celebrate my parents' 70th wedding anniversary. Besides excellent and special food, we wanted a restaurant where actual conversations could be held without shouting. Barringtons immediately came to mind. What more can you say about our meals other than every plate was licked clean!! The fish dishes were wonderful and perfectly cooked. The lamb chops... More

Unplanned trip to Charlotte. I called the day before and since there was just One of me they made dinner happen. Many thanks for the hospitality. The restaurant is quite small in fact surprisingly small. The staff is very professional and efficient. Formal but helpful service. I enjoyed four courses from the App./soup/salad section of the menu. Could not have... More

We finally made it to Barringtons after meaning to go for awhile. We were not disappointed. The food was good, the servings adequate and our dinners were cooked to our request. They have a nice wine list, some quite affordable and others a bit out of our budget. Their corkage is 30.00, which I think is a bit high. I... More

This is our favorite upscale restaurant in Charlotte. There's not a bad dish on the menu and the wine list is respectable, although not extensive. The restaurant is small, but more cozy than cramped. The waitstaff and bartenders are friendly and the service is excellent. Reservations are a must. We look forward to going back next time we are in... More

My husband and I went to Barrington's for my birthday dinner! The restaurant is very quaint but not cramped! The waitress we had was excellent! She was helpful and gave us suggestions! First course was salad and soup ... Very good! We should have had the pasta as a second course but we messed up ... As rookies we didn't... More

We visited Barrington's on a cold night in January. The restaurant is very cozy and comfortable. Our server was excellent throughout. My wife enjoyed her mussels greatly. I asked for an appetizer portion of the lamb ragout gnocchi which was provided without question. Also excellent. My wife continued with the tagliatelle pasta with prosciutto, peas and cream. Done very nicely.... More

Tried again, and again rejected by Peggy. Went to Upstream instead. We like Bruce, but staff needs work.
