First time at this restaurant.
First time at this restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We first were brought into the bar and asked to be moved. Girl was nice and obliging. Server was very friendly and nice. The best part was the food! The best tasting food we had tasted in awhile (very flavorful). We enjoyed every course! Bill was about $80 for 2 with a drink, salad, appetizer and main course. Only complaint was noisy atmosphere. Definitely recommend and will be back.

Great date night
The shredded pork with mushroom sauce, japalino mashed potatoes, asparagus w/ bacon was delicious. Cleaned my plate. The ambiance was also great for a date.

We spent the evening with our family celebrating Easter! It was a great evening in a great restuarant.

Every night is a special occasion
They did it again...turned an ordinary Friday night let's-grab-dinner into a special meal. Service was outstanding with waitress, Kim, open to our pacing needs (slower than they CAN serve). We enjoy a relaxed pace. Shrimp cocktail is always a great start with warm bread and dipping oil. We always enjoy their specials--this time a shrimp/scallop combo with fried potato and delicious sauce. So nice to go out for dinner and feel an ordinary dinner is a special occasion!

We've been visiting Charbono's
We've been visiting Charbono's for over 10 years and never have had a bad experience. The food is tremendous, value exceptional and the service fantastic.

Looking forward to my next visit!
The food was very good. I had the lump crab cakes which were excellent, my companion had the petite filet which was very good. The crab cakes were served with a tomato relish that was similar in taste to the dipping sauce that was serve with bread. The dish also had salad greens, I am not sure they were the best accompaniment but were ok. The petite filet was cooked as ordered, and served with crisp cooked veggies and a good baked potato. By good I mean light and fluffy not starchy. I ordered a manhattan on the rocks to start which was served straight up in a martini glass. It tasted as if dry vermouth was used instead of sweet. The manager was quick to replace the drink. The calamari appetizer was excellent, crisp and chewy.

The noise level in the large
The noise level in the large room we were in was so high, we could hardly carry on a conversation without raising our voices. We will definitely go back again, however will ask for a small side room which should be less "energetic".

Try the specials! We are regulars..
Try the specials! We are regulars...so we always know what to order until we hear the specials. They are...special! Tried the rotisserie pork chops outstanding. Only wish is a more extensive sandwich/appetizer list for later dining.
4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ribs are great!
First time we have ever tried the ribs and they are fabulous. Service was (as it always is) top notch. Would like the pizza better if the thin crust wasn't limp.....would also love to see more sandwiches/appetizers for late night..

There were seven in our party
There were seven in our party and we had 6 different entree's and they were all very good. The bread pudding and Sunday were to die for. The atmosphere was very pleasant and we had very good service.

Great Chef's Special
The Chef's special Tilapia dish was excellent! The service for our group of 7 was outstanding. A memorable birthday dinner and the kids were welcomed as well. A little noisy, but the food was worth it.
5/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
The place for lunch in Avon
Our group of 7 appreciated the round table, attentive service and consistently tasty food.. We enjoyed the classic Applewood Chicken Salad, tenderloin sandwiches, and soup salad combo. We keep returning because Charbonos does not disappoint.

A Favorite Restaurant!
We dine at Charbono's frequently and we had a nice dinner Saturday night. Service was not quite up to their usual standards but the food was very good as usual. My husband had prime rib and I had a steak and both were done just right. We'll be back often.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved every bite
We were welcoming home a family member and the staff put us in the back room where it was just us - never asked but decided this for us which was great. With elderly family members - it was perfect so everyone could visit and not feel like we were shouting. Food was superb as always - have been coming here for many, many years - and our server was excellent as well. So like the fact that here in Avon, IN, we can get a wonderful meal.
7/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of our favorites
The food is always wonderful, including the complimentary bread and oil. We are always impressed by the friendly, professional service. During this visit our server was a trainee, and we never would have known! We will continue to go back to Charbono's with family and friends!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
They never let you down
Service is always accommodating and food well prepared. Try the portobello mushroom sandwich or applewood chicken salad!
7/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the filet
My guest enjoyed a perfect filet! Delicious bread and oil and very attentive service

.Food was really good and
.Food was really good and you got big portions. It was our wedding anniversary and when we told the server she gave us a free dessert, won my heart instantly. Probably the best restaurant in Avon, Plainfield area for food taste, I got the scallops and they were amazing!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great locally owned restaurant
Charbonos in Avon is excellent! It's worth driving out to have their fabulous entrees and the brownie dessert is to die for! (Large enough to share.) Our service is always wonderful, professional, and friendly. Specials are often unique and fun, too.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been going there for years. Food, atmosphere, & service are always outstanding.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently worth it!
We're regulars...for a reason! Food is consistently excellent. Our party enjoyed ribs, lasagne, the addictive bread/oil. We requested they prepare grilled shrimp. While pricey ($3.99/shrimp) they were perfect and we appreciate the willingness to deviate from the menu. Great dinner! Service is always great.
8/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
Consistently good 2nite not perfect
An unusual night as it wasn't perfect. Tried new dishes Prine rib excellent. Shrimp tough and that's atypical. Bread and oil worth the trip! Harried confused hostesses seating those without reservations first. When asked why they chimed in unison "We're new." Common sense should trump training.
8/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great soup and salad
We love the "all you can eat" soup and salad for lunch. It's wonderful. I wish they would offer the other salads as well for "all you can eat."
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
They had food that was very good and it was large portions; where most restaurants have small portions. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The only thing to keep in mind that this restaurant will cost you more to dine in than other restaurants.

We had a wonderful birthday dinner at Charbonos. Thank you.

Sunday evening special!
What a great time to dine at Charbono's! Sunday evening specials, professional dining service, fabulous food, and a fresh pot of coffee for dessert. Very pleased!

Great server and food. The leftovers were great as well

We gathered to celebrate a birthday. We were seated at a round table which we like since it makes talking easier with a larger group. Meal was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful. Loved it!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
You can't go wrong here!
Brought a new friend to Charbonos for lunch. As always the Applewood Chicken salad was wonderful as was the chicken sandwich. Service attentive and speedy. Not one thing I would change....
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
delic' and great service
enjoyed seafood and veal entrees and an excellent chardonnay. attentive, friendly service made us feel welcome and appreciated.

We had a wonderful time for my Aunt's 90th Birthday. Thank you so much.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everyone loved their meal!
They always start out with their fabulous bread and oil, but we also loved the Hawaiian Flatbread appetizer. The Applewood Chicken Salad never disappoints either. Three generations went together and we all loved it. The kids especially loved the brownie sundae that came with their meal!

Best Prime Rib in Town
We went here twice in one week. It's a little pricey - about $26 for a 12 oz prime rib, but rest assured it's the best in Hendricks County. Great service, too.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was disappointed that no mention was made about my birthday. Thought server would be informed, and when she asked if anyone wanted dessert I had to ask for my birthday dessert. I was very embarassed. If an effort is made to make a reservation stating that it is a birthday, and wanting to redeem a birthday dessert then the server should be informed. Otherwise, sitting in the bar area certainly made it easier to communicate with our guests, because my daughter and other guests of mine usually have difficulty hearing each other in the main dining area. Thank you
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a group of 8 coming from different locations and our table was ready in a very nice location. Our service was immediate but not hurried and good attention thru the evening. All the orders came at the same time. Several tried the prime rib and it was on level with the best any of us have ever had. The shrimp cocktail was impressive and was worth it for a special occasion.
The mixed drinks were not impressive even after a couple of substitututions.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner w/great friends.
Great dinner w/great friends. Had a wonderful server who put up with our silliness. :)

Great place for large groups!
9 of us went for lunch which is always too many...but not here. Cheerful, attentive service, delicious salads and sandwiches, in and out in less than an hour without sacrificing quality.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Indulge in chicken velvet soup or a simple sandwich. It will be well prepared and tasty!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great date night place
I'd been looking at the Discover Indy coupon for years and always enjoyed our date nights at Stone Creek. So we finally made it to Avon to check out Charbonos. It lived up to my expectations. Quaint, friendly, romantic and the food was divine. Will be back.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thank you so much for serving us for our office Christmas party. We enjoyed our waitress, Alyssa, and her helpers! The menu items that were notable was the Chicken Velvet Soup and the new Chicken Wrap.
We have come to Charbonos for our party the last two years. Last year we were placed in the banquet area and that was ideal. This year we were in the general dining area and it was more noisy but not to bad.
Thank you once again!
