Amazing service, atmosphere and food!!! It is my favorite restaurant in the area!!
This place never disappoints. It should be packed at lunchtime but never is, it seems to be a hidden treasure.
Took wife and kids for Mother’s Day. The only offered a pri fixe menu for $55. I ordered the seafood risotto. The menu said shrimps, clams and scallops. The dish had literally 2 shrimps one scallop and maybe 5 clams. Really? For $55. A joke.
Great place, great food. Been there twice and never too crowded.
Excellent service, food was amazingly delicious. My favorite restaurant will definitely recommend it and will definitely come back!
Nice place for lunch. Quiet. Varied menu. Off street parking. Very busy on weekends.
Went out with another couple, loved the whole night. Great food, nice atmosphere.
We all enjoyed our food, service was on point. Everything came out timely and in order. Outstanding night, will def be back for another meal.
Everything was very nice. The Cauliflower appetizer was surprisingly good.
Lovely food, friendly fast service but the tables are so close together that it makes it hard to have a conversation if the restaurant is busy or the table next to you is on the louder side
WE went and had to wait for the rest of our party to arrive from airport, they could not have been nicer. We hung out for about an hour then ordered food for 5. The food was good. Service was wonderful not a busy night.
I have been to Char a few times now and it is a great restaurant. Excellent food - especially the fish and steak - and a great value compared to other restaurants in the area. A bit noisy on a Saturday night but other nights are quieter.
We were looking forward to our dinner at Char as it had been a while since we'd gone. One visit reminded us of why we've stayed away. Although this restaurant has an extra room, they seem loath to open it so all patrons are crammed into one large room with no soft surfaces and a screaming noise level. It was unbearably loud. The food was fine, the service was ok although they seemed to be short handed and running one waiter ragged but really no matter what - we won't be back. Too loud.
We’ve visited Char a few times and have been very impressed. We have taken our kids too and received excellent service and wonderful food.
Food was good as always but we were in a small room surrounded by tables of 6 and 8. The noise level made the whole evening far less enjoyable than it should have been.
Party of 6 and everyone had a great meal.
Great ambience and feel. Great bar. Thanks, Dean, for taking care of the cocktails! Dining area is rustic, especially with the warm fireplace. Food was prepared fresh to order. Staff is quite attentive. Great experience.
Food price didn’t match the quality. Service was terrible
Our first time there was for Sunday HVRW dinner and it was a pleasant evening all around. The menu is nicely varied and the food is excellent! - in both taste and presentation. All 5 diners in our party were impressed by each of their three courses. The staff, from the owner to the table-service people, were all friendly, attentive and professional. The warmth of the staff is matched by the warmth of the rustic and cozy room. We can't wait to go back!
Char is far more beautiful from the inside - you'll be surprised by the wood and stone. The food (and drinks!) is creative and delicious - we've eaten here 4 times and love bringing friends who have never been! The shrimp, steak, stir fry, zucchini noodles (zoodles!), cauliflower, brussel sprouts, jambalaya, all rock - you can't go wrong! And the desserts! Get the chocolate chip cookie in the little skillet with ice cream on top!! The people who work there are always friendly and attentive and frankly I never want the dinner to end. Just a note - If you start dinner on the earlier side, like 6:45, you'll be able to hear each other well. But the time you leave, the place will be hopping, and it can get pretty..."energetic". :-)
Solid! People often look at 3 stars and think something went wrong. Nothing was wrong with the place, but it didn’t wow me! The food was very delicious, awesome wine selection. A stable place to count on for get-togethers, but i wouldn’t bring a first date or client here.
An early dinner mid week. Service was great and so were the recipes. With a fire place and good wine, we enjoyed our evening.
my wife and I went for restaurant week. the jambalaya was fantastic. will definitely go back
We love going to Char. Great owners, beautiful ambiance, very good food, nicely prepared. Fun drink list, good, varied wine list. The restaurant is a lovely place for everyday dining or a special occasion. Keep up the great work.
Everything was outstanding! The Alaskan pollack was amazing, perfectly crispy skin and moist inside with the best cooked Bok choy I’ve ever had. The Asian pear salad and chicken lemongrass ginger dumplings were divine. I will definitely be going back for more!
Excellent food, terrible service. Waiter served our drinks then disappeared for 30 minutes. Finally flagged him down so we could order our dinner. Dinner arrived in a timely manner and everyone enjoyed their entree. We asked our waiter for ketchup, and he disappeared again. 10 minutes later, we flagged him down (again) and asked for ketchup.
Our waiter never asked us if we wanted coffee or desert.
We will come back again for the food, and pray we do not get the same waiter.
Always consistent and wonderful fish dishes!
The service was great and the food was excellent. I will definitely go to Char again
We always have a delicious meal at Char. It never disappoints.
Overall great experience. However two times we ordered dishes and the server came back twice and said they were out of the items.
Char never disappoints. The whole experience is great from drinks in the bar room to the dinner. The service is always professional and the food is always good.
Good and friendly service.
**Most important: Ask them to use no salt. Best put it on yourself. They are salt happy in the kitchen.
Cookie and ice cream dessert was pretty amazing and baked perfectly in a mini caat iron skillet. A bit skimpy on the scoop of ice cream though.
Long wait for food when place was empty.
Mashed potato was flavorless, grainy. soggy, and barely warm. As if it were frozen and reheated.
Rice pilaf tasted like a salt accident.
The restaurant itself is very nice inside. I would like to try it again on a different day/time of the week while knowing to request nothing be salted.
Always enjoy our experience at Char. The food and service is excellent. I also like that when you arrange a dinner outing with friends to chat you can actually hear each other.
Enjoyed that the menu has been changed. Used to be difficult to find the right thing to order. Having said that, we both wished there were some more “pub” food choices. Like a chicken sandwich or wings or ribs.
Still we will return because there were some better choices than before. Food was well prepared and tasty.
We had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner. The $60/person w/champagne was was every penny. The food was delicious. My steak was perfect, my wife loved everything including her beautiful rose, and the atmosphere with the fireplace glowing made for a perfect night. CHAR has yet to disappoint.

Went on Valentine’s Day and was treated to a fabulous special menu with three courses (several tempting options for each course) the staff was very friendly and attentive as well. They even gave my girlfriend a rose when we got in.
Simply outstanding in every way! The food, the service, everything!
Great local gem...one of our go to restaurants. Menu changes with the season, great selection of apps, salads and mains. Wine list is evolving. The burgers are always a great...from this past week, we would recommend the chicken and shrimp stir fry if you your food a little hot and the lamb meatball appetizer.. was delicious which one of us had as a main with sautéed spinach. Good service and nice atmosphere combined with interesting menu keeps us going back.
Always great service, and I have yet to have a meal that I didn't thoroughly enjoy...A++++++!
