Best in Charlotte! – I have eaten at McNinch several times and have never been disapointed! The service is always friendly and professional, the Wine Steward has always done a great job with pairings, and the food: Awesome! Last time I went we had the Rack of Lamb and the Pork Osso Bucco, both were incredible! It may seem a little expensive, but 7 courses at any other place in town would cost WAY more than $89. And compared to restaurants in NY, Chicago, or San Fransisco, it's a steal! Maybe other reviewers on this site had a bad experience, but that's never been the case with me. Next time, I'm trying out the Chef's Table!!!

so so food – I love to eat great food but this place is too too expensive for the food. The quality lacks. We went of a recommendation with friends @ 280.00 for 2 ouch. I will stick to my other choices that don't break my husbands wallet.

OVER PRICED – I went here for my special gal and I to have a romantic dinner. $16.00 for 2 coffee's is over the top. It is a turn off to have a 20% gratuity automatically added, when service is sub standard. The food is ok at it's best . For $ 300.00 which was wine pairing for 1 person and only 3 glasses is SILLY when I am in New York yes but here in Charlotte their are too many other great restaurants with better service and GREAT FOOD AS WELL AT HALF THE COST AND THEY DON'T ADD AUTO GRATUITY.

NOT AN ANTIQUE SHOP! – THIS IS IN THE WRONG CATEGORY - it is a restaurant and should not be listed under the Antiques listing on CitySearch.

A Lovely Dining Experience – We knew we were in for a treat at the McNinch House, but nothing could have prepared us for the lovely evening we spent there. Rather than feeling like we were in a restaurant, we felt as if we were having dinner in the home of a good friend...a good friend who is an amazing chef and has a wonderful wine cellar! In an age of technology overload and too hurried lives, it was nice to be transported back to an era of personal attention with a leisurely and gracious dinner in a turn-of the century architectural gem.

Average food and high cost makes it a disappointment – Very expensive for what you get. Most of the food was good but below par when compared to restaurants of similar price (none of which are in Charlotte). We also got the wine pairings which were somewhat disappointing. We received the same wine, Murphy's Law Red ($13-17 per bottle retail), with the last two courses. While price is a poor measure of wine quality, I felt for $75 per person the wine pairings could have been more creative. Despite the ornate china and flatware, some of the stemware used to serve the wines was similar to what you would fine at a cheap Italian restaurant. Total bill for two was $425 with tax and the included 20% gratuity. The ambience is romantic but a bit over the top. By the end of the dinner, I found myself simply wanting a course to not come with a large flower stuck in it.

I doubt we will go back unless someone else is picking up the tab.

THE place for a special meal – Prepare to take your time and be pampered. I adore this place. The waitstaff is always sooo attentive- the food is spectacular- and the setting is divine.

THE Place for Special Evenings Out – This was our first time and we enjoyed the experience! The food was nothing amazing or spectacular (typical american cuisine)- I could recommend a few other restaurants, but the experience was memorable. If you like being pampered when dining, then this is the place for you. Also, if you are trying to impress a date, take her here. The restaurant has plenty of charm!!

THIS IS THE BEST FINE DINING RESTAURANT IN CHARLOTTE!!!! – My husband and I have spent many evenings celebrating at McNinch from birthdays, anniversaries to New Year's and we have never been disappointed. We went again last month and it was the most spectacular evening. They just keep getting better. We thought the wine pairings with the meal were superb. Not only was dinner absolutely DELICIOUS, it was fun to discuss the wine pairings with the wine steward. We cannot say enough about the wait staff. They have it down to a science. We did not want for anything. Try it you'll love it as we do. It is worth every dollar spent!!!

Spend an elegant evening being wined and dined in a beautiful Victorian house. – The Scene
Located in a historic home on the edge of Fourth Ward, the McNinch House is beautifully decorated with antiques collected by Chef Ellen Davis herself. Simply put, this is the ultimate special-occasion restaurant--if you have the means.

The Food
Davis prepares a six-course meal without equal; expect appetizers, soup and salad, sorbet, the main course, dessert and coffee. The menu changes nightly, with seasonal specials rotated in and out. Diners' preferences are pieced out over the phone when reservations are made and the courses reflect those conversations; you'll be able to select from one of a handful of entrees, like the rack of lamb, beforehand. A wine selection is perfectly matched to every course. This is one three-and-a-half-hour experience you won't soon forget.
