The night prior to, they experienced a kitchen fire, of which, they could not support our reservation the next day. Our input is that we could not in touch with them to confirm that our dinner reservation was cancelled. They called us at 1500 in the afternoon to communicate that this was true - dinner was cancelled. Therefore this survey is not really applicable.
Incredible food and incredible service! So delicious.
Seated by bar and music was too loud to have a good conversation. Wait staff was awesome and food was very good. Steak was slightly over cooked for medium and sea bass was great.
Always excellent and wonderful service. Nice to have an elegant and delicious meal! The non steak items are superb
The dinner and especially the service were exceptional. Celebrating this evening was made complete with the delicious, high quality meal!
It's certainly my favorite restaurant when staying in Rochester. The food is outstanding! Great service. Wonderful place to dine outside when the weather cooperates.
Great for breakfast/brunch! Food was amazing and our waitress was awesome!
Have to say we were disappointed this evening. No cocktail waitress for the patio. Didn’t have gluten free buns. Appetizers didn’t have a lot of flavor. We have been here before and had fabulous food but not tonight.
Best place in town. The service is outstanding as well as the food and choices.
A great experience every time. Delicious food, great setting and wonderful staff.
Beautiful setting. Delicious food. Excellent server.
I’ve been going to strathallen since the 1980s. Have always had an incredible meals last night was the exception! It started out with a horrible table in the back,it was a frenzy being moved.our meals were lackluster at best !smaller than normal portions that weren’t even being prepared at the high standards which Char has always had!!!
The food was amazing, the staff was very polite and the overall experience was wonderful. 5 stars all the way around.
Pricey but delicious food. We sat outside near the beautiful fire feature.
Always delicious steaks when we go. It’s expensive but worth it!
Amazing experience. The service was excellent. The food was to die for.
Friendly staff, yummy food. A bit pricey, but would definitely go again for a special occasion.
Awesome food and service. Our waitress Gina was friendly, courteous and when out of her way to make our anniversary dinner special
What can we say, this was our first time here and it won’t be our last. Everyone was so friendly; but our waitress Allison was so knowledgeable, kind and funny. She helped make our experience one we won’t forget. The FOOD!!!! Perfect! We had the Pork chop and the Ribeye both without complaints; we shared the lobster Mac and Cheese and the cream spinach. All was great. Thank you for such an amazing night out.
We had a great time. Space was quite loud but food was outstanding
Not worth what you pay. Absolutely no ambience. Server was very nice, but when one Bourbon was unavailable and another substituted, she failed to tell us the replacement was $42, which was double or more what the first was!!!! I felt that was dishonest to withhold that when she could have been upfront with it! Not a surprise you want to have when the bill comes.
It is noisy and more if a bar scene than a special occasion restaurant. Won’t be returning for sure!
Our server Gina was outstanding. My husband has food allergies and she went out of her way to make sure he had many options including taking a gluten free hamburger roll and having the chef toast it and provide an olive oil dipping sauce. We will definitely be back soon. I can’t say enough good things about the food and service. The chef and pastry chef outdid themselves.
Great customer service. Very helpful and courteous
I would probably work on the roasted mushrooms entree as a vegetarian offering. With the right seasoning, it could be a lit better. Filet was perfect!!
I was surprised that the staff, including the hostess nearing her due date, were not wearing masks. High activity level at the bar. This could be a super spreader location.
It was our first time at Char and it is the perfect date spot. Three hostess sat us immediately and was kind and efficient. Our server, Paul, knew the menu front to back and helped us pick the perfect wine based on our taste preference. The food was absolutely delectable and we did not want for anything the entire evening. Fantastic all around!
Excellent food and service - just a little bit loud with sitting near the bar area but other than that excellent
Food was great and our waitress Allison was fantastic.
We love Char! The ambiance, the food, the patio and frankly the best people watching in town.
My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and wanted to have a special dining experience to mark the occasion. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We will not wait for our next anniversary to go back.
Always a good meal and always a great drink. Very busy and very loud, and why was everyone in black on a beautiful summer evening?
Our Waiter (Scott) was disorganized, disinterested and aloof. The table directly behind us had the exact same experience. We called the manager over (I believe it was Cassie) and she listened but made zero attempt to rectify.
We were having a breakfast with our son before he headed off to Marine Corp Boot Camp and we received excellent service, as we always do. Our son loves this restaurant, we all do, and he requested it. We had a very large party and the food and experience was great, thank you again Char!!
Everyone loved their meal. I had the oyster mushrooms and found they were a little low on taste. Maybe the chimichurri did not suit my tastebuds. I used to be very wowed by the vegetarian dish at Char and was not so much this time.
The service was remarkable and the setting outside very lovely.
It was my son's birthday so we decided to have a special dinner at char. Steaks were extraordinary. They were definitely the meal to have at char. The drinks delicious and the desserts were fun. This is not a restaurant to offer value but instead Ambience and delicious food
I took my wife here for our Anniversary. It was excellent. Our waiter, Russell, was fantastic and made the experience very nice. The steak was one of the best steaks I've ever had but the sauces for the steak weren't as special. Mojitoes are the best around! Every thing on the menu is a la carte and very expensive but even with the high price it was an excellent choice for a nice dinner.
Have had several visits to Char. Usually quality of food has been outstanding. This visit it food was ok, but not great. Service however was fantastic. Allison, and especially Brianna, were definitely on their A game. Friendly, energetic, helpful and accommodating. We will definitely return in hopes that the food quality raises to past experiences.
Melt in your mouth steak. Knowledgeable wait staff.
Great food, host & ambiance. I will highly recommend this spot
Our server was amazing! I think her name was Emily but I am not sure. She made sure that I had everything I wanted for my birthday dinner.
