Had a great meal. Ordered the steak carrots and potatoes. The sides really out shined the steak. Steak was probably an 8 but the carrots were off the scale. Amy took care of me and was so great. She really made the meal, talking about farm to table and the restaurant scene. We had a long conversation about Charleston SC which i travel to often. The Piedmont would fit in perfectly in Charleston SC. Its in an older building that has been done fantastically. The Piedmont is quaint with great atmosphere. If you are going on a date or just a business meal its the perfect destination..

We had a nice meal here for Valentine's day. The menu is a little bit limited at times, but the food quality is fantastic and the atmosphere is great. You can walk to the rest of the places in downtown within a couple of minutes. There is both a downstairs and upstairs dining room to suit the atmosphere that you like. There is also back set of steps that leads straight to the bathroom, which is nice if the place is busy.

Amazing place! The was my first time dining here and let me just say I loved everything. The food was delicious and the ambience was really cozy and romantic. The staff were so kind and helpful! We loved everything! For our appetizer my date and I enjoyed the deviled eggs and hush puppies, which were wonderful. You couldn’t go wrong with anything on the menu, however I highly recommended the Duck breast and the Market fish! The manager and the chef both came to the table and thanked us for coming which made us feel so welcomed. Definitely going back!

Modern southern fare that was tasty. We tried & shared more of the small plates than main dishes and enjoyed the bites of all of them, especially the crostini & salad. Delicious birthday cake for dessert

We were welcomed by our server, Kenia. She was informative and had a wonderful smile on her face that made you relaxed and happy to be there. She was also very patient when we were overwhelmed by the choices available. There was a nice selection, but they all sounded delicious. This was our first time here.

5 of us went for dinner tonight. The appetizers were good, not spectacular- but the mains were delicious. We had the pleasure of testing guest chef Peter Brodsky and were not disappointed. We had the fisherman's stew, the market fish (red snapper), pan seared scallops, buttermilk roasted chicken, and the herb roasted pork chop.

We were there for a rehearsal dinner, nice venue, good service. Food was wonderful. Acoustics for toasts and speeches was not conducive to audience hearing what was being said. A small p.a. system would solve that.

We recently went to a special event, a food and wine dinner to promote Frances Mayes' new cookbook, "See you in the Piazza." The food was wonderful, beautifully paired with wines, and the service amazing! The restaurant was completely full, yet their were no delays, cold food etc. Bravo!!!

The food is good here, but not good enough to justify the high cost. My girlfriend got a hamburger which she enjoyed, but the fries were cold. The service was kind of slow.

Nice good. Great ambiance. Staff is friendly but not too expectations. Worth of one time visit.

This is one of the best places for fresh local rotating fare. Of the many times we have come for dinner I can say that I have truly never left disappointed. The only trouble is that with the rotating menu I dont always find something that I am super excited to eat. Overall the service is good but can vary from night to night based upon how busy they are. Do recommend making reservations to make sure to have a table.

Great date night spot in Durham! The portions are large and the food was phenomenal. I got the pan-seared scallops and they did not disappoint! It's on the pricier end (but worth it!), so definitely a fun spot for an anniversary or celebration!

Enjoyed a dinner here before a show at DPAC. My wife got the hanger steak and I got the chicken, both were great. The Negroni 401 was an outstanding cocktail. The service was perfect and accommodated my wife’s dairy allergy. Highly recommend!

We were looking for a restaurant close to the performing arts center and found that Piedmont Restaurant was only about a half mile away. The restaurant is open and small and can be a bit noisy as we were seated upstairs and there was a large gathering downstairs. That would be the only downside to our dining experience. My mother had the duck breast and I had the pork chop and both were exceptional. Our service flow was timely and not at all rushed or uncomfortably delayed. Our server handled a small miscommunication with the utmost professionalism and just solidified that we will be making future trips from the Kernersville area to Durham to visit with you all again.

Great downtown Durham location, with fresh, delicious farm to table food! The wait staff was warm & welcoming! We will definitely be back soon!
