  • "special kudos to our waiter, James. He was attentive (but not too!) knowledgeable, and fun to talk to."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The service at the front desk and by the wait staff was excellent! They were pleasant, and quite professional. All the food items were good. I would recommend this place for a romantic dinner."

  • "We enjoy the food and atmosphere. We come here for small celebration of birthday,and anniversaries. The Prime Rib dinner was cooked perfect and I had leftovers to take home. The vegetables were tender and the bread with the mixed oil was great."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Lovely place, great food, service good but just so loud could not even have a conversation! The five of us sat at the booth at far end of room as you entered the door to the left, I believe there was a service area next to us, that was not the problem it was the noise of the entire place. Would recommend trying the lunch hour time slot to see if it was any quieter. I do want to come back and try some of the other dishes that looked so wonderful. Thank you"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Not as private as I would have liked. But the prime rib was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL! Juicy, tender, seasoned...perfect! So glad that we came on prime rib special night!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Celebrated my birthday along with Father's Day. The food and the service were great, and we were seated right away. Sad that the wine selection had been updated, but I found a comparable alternate."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were traveling with a large group of 14 people. I was concernd we wouldn't find somewhere that could accommodate us. We made reservations at Charbonos and they did an excellent job! I'm not sure I've ever had a large group handled so well. The staff was kind and quick. Our food even came out at the same time and was correct. (not always the case with a big group.) Our drinks stayed full. They didn't seem overwhelmed by us at all. The food was amazing! Everyone was very satisfied with their meals. (even the foodies with us...) We are still taking about it. Great experience! I would highly recommend Charbonos."

  • "Some things on the online menu isn't on the IN restaurant menu. Booked the reservation specifically because my son and I found something on the "Online Menu" that we wanted. Got to the restaurant ordered a glass of wine etc... and then went to order our dinner and the waiter said that they didn't have the entrees that we wanted. I pulled up the online menu and showed him the entrees. He said he would ask the manager.... He returned to tell me that the manager said that they couldn't make the entrées because they weren't on the menu anymore. EXTREMLY disappointed and not happy!!! If they are going to have an online menu, then they should update the website as often as they update their restaurant menu! "

  • "The sound level was very high, food was mediocre, wait staff is pleasant but poorly trained."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Impossible to say which is better, the food or the service!! The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is wonderful. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food at Charbono's was great and service was amazing! Mother's Day was a busy day and that is understandable, but the seating was not comfortable at all and was very crammed in. Some tables had smaller chairs and had to be squeezed in where they really didn't fit well. Overall, was too noisy and crowded for my taste. Really enjoyed last year where we got to eat in a quieter room off the main buffet area. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food is very good and the service is OK, but there are way too many tables for the amount of space and the noise level was over the top. Granted, this was brunch on Mothers' Day. We may go back, but it will be during the week at 5:00."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "They had a nice brunch out, but we decided to order off the menu, as we like the options on there... "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Made a reservation for mothers day brunch, we were 45 minutes late and expected to have to wait by that time. Getting there we were seated immediately. The food was phenomenal and we'll worth the price. I cut my prime rib with a fork and the salmon was incredible! "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The buffet was tasty but nothing was hot. We were encouraged to get the buffet, we were not given menus until requested. The beef tips were actually COLD. Our 19 year old son lost his appetite due mostly to food temperature. He ate 1/2 a plate. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Ordered a ribeye & received an expensive piece of somewhat dry, tasteless meat."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Celebrated a birthday and Mother's Day. Definitely worth making a reservation for Friday night. Fabulous meal, great service, fresh coffee, lots of friendly staff."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We were sat at a table in the bar which was very busy and very loud!! I couldn't tell you how many times someone's butt was right next to the table. We were there celebrating our wedding anniversary and it was not romantic at all. Food and service were great but atmosphere was awful!"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We regularly eat at this restaurant but this time the table we were sitting at was dirty, the service was extremely slow, the food was sub-par. We asked to speak to the manager and she didn't seem to care. The overall experience was disappointing for this type of restaurant. We go to Charbonos once a week but won't go back until things improve. "
    Dined on 4/29/2014
  • "We are long-time customers of Charbono's. This is the only restaurant we will go to when we want a steak. Highly recommend this place to everyone!"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "Love bringing guests here for lunch as food is consistently great and service attentive. A simple BLT is delicious!"
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "The Sunday afternoon Easter lunch was very good. Friends, neighbors, and old Avon friends from school were there having lunch also. Sharyn and I both enjoy dining at Charbonos in Avon. Looking forward to having lunch again soon. Thank you for Easter lunch."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "A last minute decision for 8 of us to go to lunch resulted in a fabulous meal with perfect service. Everything we had--the pizza, salad, soup, special sandwich, was all perfect. And the service is always attentive. Can't go wrong here."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Charbono's has a wonderful menu with a wide variety. Everyone in my party had a different entree and each one was excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We had a birthday celebration for my elderly father Sunday - which included 3 little ones. They were well behaved, but our waiter was so kind to them, in addition to taking care of us all. Can't thank him enough. Dad enjoyed the celebration - and his FOOD greatly. Thanks Charbonos!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The food was good and served hot. The service was slow and we had to ask for refills every time. The server seemed new and a large group seemed to overwhelm her."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Initially I was not thrilled with the hostess seating us "ON FULL DISPLAY" in the middle of the bar area. That feeling faded as "SAM" took VERY good care of us, appetizer (Ahi for two) and entrees (Shrimp w/grits and Cajun Salmon Salad) were OUTSTANDING and we were able to "tune out" the drone of noise surrounding us."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Busy on Friday night as most Indy resturants are but the food and service was very good."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "We had a good of 10 woman and the server took such good care of us. The timing of the food was great, service was great and the food was served hot."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We've been here a couple of times now. Loved our crab cake appetizer! Bread with special olive oil concoction is very tasty. Salad was delicious. Pasta and seafood dishes were a big hit, as well as the dessert. This time we chose linguini pasta with seafood ...delish! The other was mahi mahi with coconut rice, also wonderful! We went on a busy weekend night, and the staff was courteous and attentive. We noticed that it seems to be a place where families and friends like to get together. We will be back again and again!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Charbonos seems to have consistently good steaks that are very comparable to the high end steak houses without the high end price. I've enjoyed both filets and strips that are always a pleasant surprise on first bite. Definitely worth the trip to Avon."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Charbonos is consistent. The specials are always outstanding. Yes, it is pricey but to KNOW it will be excellent makes the experience valuable. Chicken marsala was delicious. Pizza always wonderful (although strangely not piping hot this time). Shrimp cocktail wonderful."
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "Took my wife here for her b-day. Always have great customer service and great food. They even gave my wife a free dessert for her birthday! Love the fact that they offer less expensive dishes as well as the stuff you want for special occasions... a filet or sea food. Probably the nicest restaurant in Avon!"
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Charbono's. It was an awesome experience! I ordered flowers using OpenPetals. Although there was a disclaimer, the flower arrangement looked exactly like the picture. I sent an e-mail to the restaurant advising them that I had ordered them. They even responded thanking me for letting them know and that they would be expecting them. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly staff. When we were taken to our table the staff had already placed the flowers on the table. Our waitress was outstanding! the food was very good! All in all it was an awesome experience! I would recommend Charbono's to anyone. You can't go wrong!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This restaurant was a great find for us and came highly recommended! We enjoyed outstanding food and delicious desserts. The spicy shrimp on the rib eye is very spicy!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Servers are very well prepared to handle large groups. Food came out timely and exactly as ordered."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Food was great as well as the service. We had requested a semi private table for our anniversary and were unfortunately seated right by the front door nex to the hostess stand. This was not the semi romantic setting we were hoping for."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "The noise level was very energetic for a Saturday evening out. The restaurant was very busy but Open Table allowed us to by-pass the wait and walk up to our table 15 minutes before our timed reservation and 30 minutes from off the street. The food is what you would expect in a $$ restaurant. It was prepared very well and delivered hot. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We all really liked the place. We had a party of 7 that all met from different directions of the state. We all had something different, and some had the buffet. Everyone was pleased and enjoyed our meal. Parmesan chicken was really good. Steak was also very good. Our waitress was very helpful and very pleasant. Four of the seven had not been before, and she explained everything very well. Even made some suggestions. It was nice to try a place we hadn't been before. We would go back!"
