Charcoal Steak House
Birhtday dinnerCan't say enough..great atmosphere, food, people. We had a variety of food..chicken, beef, seafood..all wonderful! And the seed rolls were fabulous!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever diasappointedThis is by far the best restaurant in KW. Service is exceptional, food is always and I mean always great. I also bring customers for lunch/dinner about twice a month as they are always impressed with the quality of food. This is the only spot I ever consider for special occasions as I am never disappointed.
I have traveled throughout the US and Canada on business and enjoyed some of the finest restaurants North America has to offer...Charcoal Steak House is high amoung this group and the defintion of fine dining.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Time; Great FoodWe chose Charcoal Steak House as a place to celebrate our son's convocation from WLU. We had a great meal, with superior service. No one had any complaints.
Not only was the meal outstanding, the restaurant provided a "grad" gift in the form of a gift certificate.
Above and beyond.
Very happy with our choice.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceOur server was very kind and ensured our request for Nestle Road Pie was brought to the Manager.
Kevin was fabulous and engaged my elderly father with the story of Nestle Road Pie and why it wasn't available any longer.
The food did take longer than we would have liked to arrive.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the "The Charcoal Steakhouse"It's the Charcoal Steakhouse. Exceptional service and still a great ambiance. I was disappointed that not many of the diners bothered to dress appropriately to celebrate events much like we were celebrating my wife's birthday. Jeans, runners and flannel plaid shirts don't scream "Special". Business casual should be the minimum norm for all guests.
As for the food, the daily soup was hot, fresh and flavorful and the salad, had a good balance of ingredients including the dressing. My steak was perfect although my wife's salmon was a bit too well done. One disappointment was that the melange of vegetables on both of our plates had a very heavy undertone of freshly ground black pepper preventing us from savoring other more subtle flavors.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYearsWe have been going to the Charcoal Steak House for years and will never stop.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMbest steak ever !!Had the best, most flavorful 7oz filet steak I have ever ordered in a restaurant & have ordered quite a few. Staff was very courteous & helpful which was awesome.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur ExperienceThis was our first visit to Charcoal and were not disappointed. We chose a Thursday evening reservation figuring the restaurant woud have less patrons and give us more time to enjoy the experience.
The appetizers were just super. My wife had both the oysters and the crab cakes; she said both were the best she ever had. I, myself had the French onion soup and the escargots, the soup was fine but the snails were superb.
We both odered Sirlion steak with peppercorn sauce on the side. Excellent, properly cooked and flavourful - WOW. I'm a pretty old guy and remember the days when there was a steak house every few blocks.
There is no doubt in my mind why Charcoal is continuing to flourish when so many others have failed or disappeared.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience!My wife and I went to Charcoal for dinner on our wedding anniversary.
Right from the time we walked in, we knew service was going to be excellent. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation, and they promptly seated us.
The brought fresh rolls and butter, and the crab cakes were to die for! Our steaks came excellently prepared, and we were brought a special desert to celebrate our occasion.
My wife said it was a 9 out of 10 restaurant, but when the desert was brought to us as a surprise, it made us decide this is one place that deserves a full 10 out of 10 rating.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodThe food was for the most part excellent but the person who ordered the baseball steak said it was not very tender5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Charcoal restaurant neverThe Charcoal restaurant never lets me down. As great for special occasions as it is for a romantic dinner as it is for a business lunch or dinner. Great food and staff!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMexperiences continue to impressCSH remains one of our family's favourite dining spots. Take out of town guests here and they insist on returning. Wonderful food in a warm rich atmosphere. Will be our go-to place for any special occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fantasticI love the Charcoal Group. For me its a real treat to dine here. The food is always top notch as well as the service. My last visit was a business lunch as I was asked to choose a restaurant that serves a good steak. I of course chose Charcoal. My associate ordered the prime rib beef lunch and was not disappointed and quite impressed. I opted for a poppy seed pickerel with a spinach salad starter that comes in a "power lunch" special. Twice I have ordered this lunch special now and it also includes a "power bar" but I have never received any such bar. Maybe you have to ask for it specifically? Anyway, salad was absolutely heavenly for me. Spinach, dried apricots, red onion, goat cheese and pecans and I absolutely loved it. Be back soon5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly one thing not greatFood was delicious. Ambiance perfect. Service was efficient but certainly not friendly.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood jobGreat food good service the lady we had this time was ok but the guy we had the last time was outstanding.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFood was fantastic. We love Charcoal. Always friendly and overall great experience!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place to visitI like this restaurant. The food is good. The staff is helpful. It is clean. I only wish that it did not cost so much to eat out.
One visit eats up a quarter of my weekly pay check.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the varied menuOur group of 5 had a very enjoyable evening. The recently changed menu provided lots of variety, the food tasted wonderful, and our service was great.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable dinner for threeThe oysters were very fresh. Tuna Tartar was excellent. Fritto Misto was done just right with light feel to it. We ordered a grass feeded PEI Striploin, Bone In NY Striploin and Omaha Ribeye. The The PEI had the best texture of all three. Chewy in a very good way. Ribeye was very marbled to my liking.
We had the cheesecake and flourless chocolate cake. I didn't get to try the cheesecake but my two friends had commented it was very excellent.
The service was very good. Avery has done her usually great. Attentive but not pushy. She seems to know when we need her and when we don't.
Two friends were come from Mississauga. They have commented it will cost at least another 25% more for this quality of steak in Toronto.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedAll of our party members were delighted with the dining experience at "The Charcoal".
