Diner Reviews
  • "Charbono's has a wonderful menu with a wide variety. Everyone in my party had a different entree and each one was excellent."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "Busy on Friday night as most Indy resturants are but the food and service was very good."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

Some people complained when they were brought to that room to be seated but we were glad to be in there. It may not have had the ambience of the main restaurant but the server and food made the dinner excellent."

  • "Why are we regulars? Because we can count on Charbonos for a delicious meal. Their specials are special and always worth a try...old standbys equally good. Rotisserie chicken is tender, flavorful and generous. Can't go wrong with Applewood chicken or wedge salads. Loved this meal."

I also love the bacon-spinach melt sandwich that is available for lunch. DELICIOUS! Our service was excellent despite being there late in the lunch hour. Professional, friendly service at all times of the day. Excellent lunch to celebrate a birthday."
