AWFUL.

Over priced food, would rather at a drive thru. The meat sauce was watery in texture and taste. over crowed and rude staff. When I called to make a reservation I was hung up on.

You'll love it for the experience, not the food

I have to be honest, I love the Open Kitchen. I go a few times a year and it's always a terrific experience. The place is cool, the people are interesting, and nice. It is the least Italian food you'll ever have - but if you're not a foodie, or know what real Italian food is supposed to taste like, you'll think it's fine - or great even. Honestly it's Americanized, cheesy, and not good home made stuff. However, i... view more

Worst Dining Experience in Charlotte

Decided to visit this ""landmark"" for first time, after 6 yrs. of many fine dining experiences in Charlotte. Will NEVER return. Food was awful. Riccotta cheese in manicotti not cooked properly - or perhaps old - either way could not be eaten. Tomato sauce out of a can. Veal like leather. Health Dept. should investigate this diirty eatery. Eggplant parm full of ground beef, little eggplant. Waitress abrupt and... view more

OK, we get it, jcard.

So, you had a bad experience. One review gets the message across. And poison? Maybe you just thought you went to the Open Kitchen. We have been going to OK since the early 80's, and never had a less than great experience.Our kids have grown up watching the monkey on the bike cross the ceiling. They have always loved the food, and so have we. My favorite is the Veal Barcelona! Oh, my gosh, I crave that dish! A... view more

BEST EVER AUTHENTIC CASUAL ITALIAN EVER!!!

This is the Oldest Restaurant in Charlotte, 1950, I think. It's ""THE"" Landmark for authentic FAMILY ITALIAN COMFORT FOOD. Granted, due to the FABULOUS Food, one may have a short wait, IT IS WORTH IT!!! Close to Panthers Stadium and Uptown Charlotte. I moved from Charlotte 10 years ago and am still craving the MANICOTTI SICILIANO, my personal celebratory/comfort food of choice!!! This is NOT Romantic High End Dining... view more

Stroke of Luck!

It was a stroke of Luck we found this wonderful little Italtian Eatery! We had attended a Panther's game one Sunday and were starved even though we had eaten at the game. We were not in any hurry to get back on the Interstate home with all of the football traffic. We drove around the area behind the Stadium and saw The Open Kitchen and as we both love Italian cooking we stopped in and had one of the best meals w... view more

Casual/old fashioned = GOOD TO ME!

I have been going to The Open Kitchen since I was a child. To read some of these horrific reviews fills me with rage! You people must be crazy! The Open Kitchen one of Charlotte's landmarks for a reason! Yes, the atmosphere is casual, but does casual = bad food? DONT THINK SO! The pizza is hand made....no said ""pizza kit"" involved. The eggplant parmesan and crabmeat parm. are 2 of my absolute favorites. Several o... view more

A Charlotte Treasure!

I remember going to the Open Kitchen as a small child, and until recently had not been back in almost 25 years. When I walked in it was like stepping back in time - NOTHING has changed - and that's a good thing! It feels like an old Italian eatery in Rome, and the food was still as incredible as I rembered it to be. With so much growth and change in Charlotte, it is nice to see that some of the best have survived. In... view more

Horrible

This place makes Olive Garden Look Good. It is the worst Italian I had in a while. To top it off it wasn't cheap. It is almost worth going to see how bad it is. A Joke.
