“Delicious food and Great atmosphere”
Reviewed 27 June 2013

Soul is one of the best restaurants in Charlotte. Their small plates an sushi are both delicious. Great late night atmosphere and bar scene.

“Great Atmosphere & Ecletic Menu”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

My fiance and I highly recommend this place. The atmosphere is unbeatable with the couch/table and chairs set up, low lighting, awesome art work, and trendy music. I read the reviews on Urbanspoon on our way to Charlotte and while some of them were complaining about the service and the "hippy" atmosphere I have to say our waiter was awesome and I personally loved the atmosphere. We had to wait just over an hour for a table as it was PACKED at 8:00pm but it was nothing a drink on the patio couldn't fix. The menu is very eclectic and was fantastic. We had the Soul Roll, one of the best sushi rolls I've ever had and the Salmonopita which was sort of like a crab rangoon but with salmon and in a puff pastry instead of a wonton and while it was OK I wouldn't order it again for that price. We also had the Flatbread with
truffle whipped goat cheese, pistachio pesto,honey braised garlic and fresh arugula...I am still daydreaming about this dish three weeks later. After a beer, a glass of champagne, and a martini (over the span of 3 hours but I recommend sticking to the champagne as it goes great with tapas) we were still a little hungry so we ordered the Caviar spread and the Spicy Feta spread. Both were good but not amazing. There are so many things on the menu along with nightly specials that you are bound to find something you love.

“Delicious...Trendy...Pretentious...”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Pretty decent food depending on what you order. Their sushi is not to be missed.

This place is almost laughable though as far as prices and pretentiousness goes. I don't understand this aspect of Charlotte dining - someone must have had this brilliant (?) idea a while back to lower lights, buy trendy furniture, and hire rude people and that would allow you to serve TINY plates at ASTRONOMICAL prices. Soul is the true definition of that.

Unfortunately their sushi is addicting and some of their small plates are (almost) worth the ridiculous prices associated.

“Great atmosphere and even better food...”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

While a little out of the way from where we were staying in uptown CLT, the trek here was well worth it. Highly recommend the Dancing Tuna roll - was among one of the best items we had. So good, we ordered another. We ordered quite a few plates/dishes and pretty much everything we ordered was tasty.
