    Decided to try Char with a small group of friends. The drinks were great ( we ordered off the special list), the food was ok. We felt the prices were on the high side for the amount of food we got. The tables are a bit too close; our "neighbor's" backside knocked over one of our water glasses as she left her table.

    Went to Char with my Mother & Sister on a Thursday night for dinner. PROS- The staff was friendly, our waiter was knowledgable & attentive. The food came out at the right time & was very good. CONS- Room was a bit too dark & it's fairly small so you can hear the conversations at the tables near you (a little loud). Overall, very good; I will go back.

    We ate at Char during restaraunt week. For apps, we got the sliders and onion soup both amazing! The onion soup was probably the best we've ever had! My husband had skirt steak, delish, and I got sweet potato ravioli with brown butter, yum! Dessert were great, especially the chocolate cake! It is the ultimate in choc!!!! We loved the restaraunt , the only negative was the service. Many tables were turned over while we waited for our food. I think we got the newby server. That wouldn't stop us from going back! The food was excellent and they had a very interesting cocktail menu! I definately would recommend this restaraunt!!!!

    loved it when first opened. Now menu different, new chef. Boring selection and substandard execution. We are not going back.

    Hopefully once the waitstaff gets trained and the timing is better the overall dining experience will improve. The food is excellent. The bartender makes some fine cocktails. Huntington is a tough town to survive if you don't treat your customers right. I would suggest Char Grille get the staff polished right away. The food and drinks are set.

    After arriving at char on a busy night when most othe restaurants were packed, we were surprised to see there was only one other table there seated. The menu was quite diverse and there were some very interesting choices that sounded exciting. This made it very hard for me to decide what to order and I had at that point ready planned that I would have to return to try all of the delicious menu options. I ordered the sea bass only to be told by the wait person that they had run out of it... Run out? How is that possible the place was empty. So I ordered the scallops instead. Our food came and it was so salty it overpowered everything. The prices were very high too. I do NOT reccomend this place

    Ate at Char Grill for first time since it opened. Good meal. Menu is not overly fussy either. Steaks perfectly cooked to order. For the sake of constructive criticism I would say that service was a bit frantic, busy saturday night but that should be planned in. Staff were welcoming, friendly. Wine list is good. Enjoyable. Will be back
