    GREAT place for a relaxing evening with friends or a date. Pineapple cake is AWESOME!! Good food and deserts. Hookah was good but they need more shisha flavors and more quality AF Flavors.

    Definitely sit outside if possible, much chiller vibe. Great for dates. It's $20 for a hookah so if you're going to go, definitely go with ppl who also smoke so it's worth the money.

    This is one of my favorite places to be in Charlotte. Baileys bread pudding is everything and more! Hookahs are great and they have drink specials throughout the week! They have free parking too!

    OMG, Kacey H. Is the greatest server, she treated us like royalty, lol but she did provide outstanding service, the pineapple upside down cake was delicious. Nice atmosphere, I will return!

    Great drinks and hookah, perfect for dates. The Euro music got a little 😴 after awhile but overall nice place!

    Make sure to make a reservation for less of a wait time. The tiramisu martini is to die for, and you can't beat $20 bottomless wine night on Thursdays.

    Got free hookah for being mayor! S'mores dessert platter is the bomb! Also try to thin mint martini tastes just like mint chocolate chip ice cream

    I went there the other night. The atmosphere is amazing, but the carpet did not match the drapes. The French Martini not so great. The flatbread smelled, and the creme brulee was the only good thing.

    Blue Mist is a MUST TRY hookah flavor upgrade. Also try the mix-n-match flavors, mint goes so well with so many things...

    Drinks were okay. Need to work on a friendlier staff and speedier service and consider preparing the most popular desserts daily to avoid running out.

    Slow service. Hostess was rude. Waited 40 mins to place order. Completely Out of most of their desserts. Spinach Dip came with cheap chips and almost no spinach . DD Strawberry Cake was delicious.

    Seems like they want an exclusive environment. They don't accept same day reservations but they have empty tables everywhere. Revise this rule until clientele base is built & service is improved.

    It's not the best looking thing on the menu but the Baileys Bread Pudding may be one of the tastiest.
