    For this week’s Top 25 List, we used Yelp’s star ratings to rank Charlotte’s most upscale restaurants. Ties were broken by the number of reviews.

    Charlotte diners still enjoy their steakhouses. Oak Steakhouse, which describes itself as a “modern take on the classic American steakhouse” makes its first appearance on the list this year. Also new to the list are Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant Bulla Gastrobar and Fin & Fino, a casual seafood house operated by Jon and Kim Dressler’s Rare Roots Hospitality restaurant group.
