At Yume and our beautiful Hostess was so kind to let us in with our last minute booking. Everything was so delish from bevs to all the dishes and to add the incredibly fantastic service from Brandon, Ace of spades. He was so fast fast and knowledgeable with great recommendations, even though he had other other large tables sat at the same time, he never missed a step with us. Thank you Yume for this memorable evening ❤️

About the restaurant
Inspired by the wood-fired Robata grills of Japan, Mizu offers a refreshed take on live-fire cooking atop the Hyatt Centric in the heart of Charlotte’s SouthPark neighborhood. Opened in August of 2021 and named one of 2022's "25 Best New Restaurants" and "50 Best Restaurants" by Charlotte Magazine, the rooftop restaurant by Indigo Road Hospitality Group (IRHG) combines the traditions of ancient Japanese cooking with Southern influences and Asian flavors. The kitchen, anchored by Mizu’s own Robata grill, features a seafood-focused menu composed of wood-fired, raw, and chilled offerings.

The beverage program focuses on bright, easy-drinking libations using Japanese spirits and seasonal ingredients, complementing the cuisine and atmosphere. With a chic, minimalist design with natural elements throughout, the restaurant, named for the Japanese word for water, offers sweeping rooftop views from the patio, as well as sophisticated interiors and comfortable lounge and bar seating.

Wow what an incredible experience. We did a big celebration for my husbands birthday over the weekend and on a Tuesday, his actual birthday, we wanted to have an intimate dinner just he and I. We picked Mizu after reading the reviews and they were very accurate. Every single employee from the host to the people delivering food to the manager wished my husband a happy birthday. The food recommendations from our server were catered to us. Starting the experience with such great customer service was only outshined by the delicious food. We started with several seafood starters including the hamachi crudo, maguro heat and yellow tail nigiri and a they were all outstanding. We moved into several of the small plates and robata grilled bites. The food and service were just so amazing to make a special occasion that much better.

We loved the experience! Service was good , just what you would expect in an upscale restaurant. Food was very good and nicely presented. Parking lot is not big enough . Dining room was quite noisy , but everyone was enjoying their evening! Will definitely return!

About the restaurant
The Pump House is a multi-level, riverfront restaurant featuring two bars, including a rooftop bar, all with sweeping views of the beautiful Catawba river. Situated in the new Riverwalk development, the Pump House is an upscale, gourmet restaurant with a casual but elegant atmosphere. It was at one time an actual pump house which was used by an acetate plant. We have repurposed the building to create a one-of-a-kind restaurant featuring gourmet, southern-inspired cuisine, a hand-picked wine list, and craft cocktails. We hope to serve you soon!

Amazing night out any such a fun and unique location. Got to sit on the top floor overlooking the Catawba River and the food was spectacular. Cannot say enough good things about the shrimp and grits and fried okra!
