I have been here several times with friends, with my husband and for a work dinner. Always a winner! The food is so tasty & creative (goat cheese & polenta croutons!), and as someone who follows the paleo diet, there is always something for me on the menu. The fish is always great. I love sitting by the fireplace. The decor is so charming and cozy. And the staff is always very attentive.

Went for Hudson Valley Week dinner 3-course special (yes Char, in Greenwich, CT, just across the border from Portchester, made it on to the Hudson Valley list). We were not disappointed as the food was special in its preparation and the portions were not "slimmed" down. Will definitely return.

Both the dishes we ordered were Excellent! It was a Saturday, so very busy and noisy. If it had been any other night and one of the wait-staff hadn't quit 30 min before we were seated, I think I might have given all 5 stars. Definitely want to try again on a different evening. Did have a wonderful and quiet lunch there on a previous occasion.

We were seated promptly. The staff was attentive and more than accommodating as we made many changes to the menu based upon our dietary restrictions. The food was above average and the space was industrial chic attractive. The crowd was very lively which can be good and bad. It was very noisy but as it got later and tables started to clear, the noise level became much more manageable.

Weeknight this is wonderful. Food excellently prepared and fresh. There is a fire going and music not too loud, even a good playlist. Avoid weekends unless you can handle the high volume crowds. I will definitely be back!

We were there for lunch on a Monday (Martin Luther King day) so it wasn't crowded. The ambiance and food are unpretentious . The service was good and the waitperson was knowledgeable and friendly. On a frigid day, it was good to sit in front of a fire - albeit it gas.

Never leave review but experience was so bad have to. Dined with bf that has dairy and egg allergy. Restaurant did not know ingredients in their food and tried to serve him dishes containing milk. Server admitted that some items (bread, dumplings) were not made on site but shipped in. Claimed shrimp were dairy free but were brought to us battered. Had to send server back twice before he admitted milk in batter. Not appropriate for vegan, vegetarians, or ppl with allergies. On top of this tried to charge us for shrimp.

My Husband and I had a lovely dinner at Char on Friday Dec 15. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the Holidays and the roaring fireplace made it a very relaxing atmosphere. Our food was outstanding. I had the red snapper special and my husband the jambalaya which was a bit spicy but delicious. If you like mushrooms don’t miss the side order of wild mushrooms. Was happy to have a nice dining experience for under $100. Would have given 5 stars but service was a bit slow. Definitely will return.

First time at Char for my wife’s 40th bday and we loved it. Ambience was rustic and warm with fireplace. Food was great. Perfect night for a date or night out with few friends. Met the owner on the way out and it was clear that he takes pride in his restaurant’s. Only slight improvement would be that you could order a glass of wine from the bottles. The glass list could be expanded. And I would replace the chocolate cake ice cream dessert with a chocolate soufflé. Overall, would definitely go back and highly recommend it.

This will be a go to option for me when recommending an interesting alternative in the Greenwich/Westchester area. It is a very cozy scene with a warm and friendly staff. The menu invites one to try something out of routine but not in an intimidating way. I actually would like to try everything on the menu. Tasty wine and the same note for dessert. I leave here happy.

Char is always dependable and consistent. The food and service are always great there, and I I've never had a bad meal there or bad service! The ambiance is cozy with the fireplace, and the noise level is perfect... not too loud, but loud enough to know that everyone is enjoying themselves.

I have been to Char a few times and it’s always a great experience. The food was excellent ( I had a delicious swordfish ) the service attentive and nice. The decor is comfortable and inviting. I was surprised it wasn’t more crowded on a Friday night. I think overalll it’s superior to a lot of other places in the neighborhood and the prices are reasonable. I will be back.

I would want to go back again when it's NOT Restaurant week. It was noisy due to being crowded with a few larger tables filled and loud. The service was very good, very attentive and I had seafood paella which was tasty but unfortunately the shrimp was overcooked and a little rubbery.

So would like to give it another chance on a "regular nite" and see how they do
