In town on business, I like to try all the seafood places. Just went to the Hearst Tower and found Lavecchia's Seafood and was amazed at the meal I had. My friends agreed. The seabass was the best I ever had. The tuna dish was equally amazing. Crabcake, oysters even the steak was excellent. Great wine list. Service was just okay, but the vibe was cool. Can't wait to go back.

We went to Lavecchia's tonight for the first time and will not be returning. Our food was overcooked and lacked flavor. Food is overpriced considering the portion size.

The prices are high but it's a definitely a finer dining establishment. My suggestion is to go during Charlotte Restaurant week. You can try so many things for a good price. I second the stuffed shrimp.

This restaurant looked the part, but failed to deliver. We ordered the NY strip steak and the 2.5 pound giant Maine lobster.

The steak was very dry and tasted ok at best. I do always order my steaks well-done, however I have never been served an overcooked steak at an upscale dining establishment. The lobster looked great on the plate, but was rubbery instead of tender and even the extra butter we requested for dipping couldn't make it better.

Although there were very few customers (we had a 6PM reservation to beat the crowd) our waitress seemed distracted and inattentive. She spent most of the time flirting with some local band members seated in the booth next to ours. She carried on about a 10 minute conversation with them while we tried to get her attention to complain about the lobster.

Upon being notified that our lobster was unsatisfactory the waitress told us that the manager would comp one of our soup appetizers. The soup cost about $7. The lobster was $27 per pound. You do the math.

All in all it was a very disappointing dining experience and almost put our damper on an otherwise great evening over the Memorial Day weekend. Needless to say we will not be returning.

Pros: decor, atmosphere

Cons: service, quality of food

This is a great seafood restaurant! The atmosphere is nice and quaint and the food is delicious. My all-time favorite dish is still the stuffed shrimp with garlic mashed potatoes and succotash.

I finally tried LaVecchia's and had a great waitress, Sara. She was friendly and very attentive to our needs. We were originally seated next to the live lobster tank and I objected to having the creatures swimming right behind my friend's head, where I would have to watch them all night. The hostess agreed to reseat us and within 10 minutes the place filled up to capacity. Obviously, this is a popular place for the after work crowd, so get there a bit on the early side-5ish maybe for a choice seat. Reservations are suggested, too. We had to make a concert and our waitress made sure we got out on time. The food was delish and nice wine selections, too. It does get noisy and the atomosphere is fun and upbeat-very wild fish sculptures hanging from the ceiling. I would also like to go back and hang outside at the bar area one weekend night. This place is off Tryon so you don't have to listen to the cars blaring past and convenient parking next door by Reids. Also, if you have a concert to make at the arena, it is a hop over there-the new light rail is near by, too, for easy in and out of the city. Great place for all ages and persuasions.

Pros: Cool and trendy with great food and wine

Cons: Gets very loud after work hours

Lavecchias is a wonderful seafood restaurant located on 6th Street in uptown Charlotte. It's located right on the light rail line. This restaurant is absolutely wonderful, but I could not afford to eat here every week. The prices are high but the food is wonderful.

Great ambience and quality food. Try the swordfish or stuffed shrimp. For an appetizer get the tower and for dessert, the key lime pie!

The fish here is both varied and delicious. Everyone at my table was completely satisfied and delighted with what they ordered. The halibut special came with an amazing sauce and flaked off on your fork. The sea bass also was cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth. The one disappointment was getting a bad oyster. For $19/dozen, you would think their oyster chef could spot the bad ones. It's odor alone should've been the telltale. Overall, a completely delicious fish dinner and a restaurant i plan to enjoy again...just won't order the oysters.

The food was great. The calamari apetizer was delicious! I had the jumbo shrimp stuffed with lobster meat. It was very good. The waiter was fun and attentive. They even had a jazz band playing in the bar area.
