Angus NY Strip Topped w/Fried Eggs Your Way Side of Home Fries & Toast

Best steak I ever ate. Perfect place for a special occasion!
Good was delicious, our waitress was sweet and will definitely be back.
Ownership, staff, and of course, quality chef makes for the perfect dining experience. Add great menu options and drink menu, and new wine list, it's a must go to!
The Asian calamari and Mahi Mahi tacos are a great start, along with dumplings and coconut shrimp!! All excellent! If you're craving something new, the srew with pappardal is awesome, as is the zappa de pesce and rack of lamb!
As for service, Desiree in the bar area and Mike in the main restaurant are both amazing servers, and give you every reason to feel comfortable for every return. A+
The food is not as good and the portions not as generous as a couple years ago
Char is amazing. Never disappoints. My favorite restaurant. Servers & bartenders are the best.
Great service. Food was great. Nice local find!! Would definitely go back.
Best "neighborhood restaurant" in the area. Always lively, and packed on weekends. Make a reservation.
Our server was OUTSTANDING. the over all service was very good. The food and drinks were delicious. We've been there many times and it never disappoints.
I ordered a special martini as soon as I sat down. I did not get my drink till after my apps, the reason I was told why it took so long was due to lack of martini glasses. My drink was not delivered in a martini glass and it was watered down. So it took 30 min to get my drink and it was terrible. AND they still charged me for it. They did not even mention to take it off the bill.
It was very busy and very loud!
Got there 6:45 and left 9:20
Food was excellent and we had a great time, but I put on the reservation it was my wifes bday, not a single person mentioned it or said anything. We sat 20+ min before seeing a waitress, then at the end we couldnt even order dessert bc dinner had been 3 hrs and we had to get home time wise. I dont blame the server, she had a 20+ person group to herself so she was tied up w them a lot, was poor planning by restaurant. Its also very pricey however food from start to finish was awesome! Will go back but only for special occasion due to price
I felt that the food for a premium steakhouse was very bland and underseasoned. I have been to Peter Lugers, Morton's, Ruth Chris and The Palm and never had to add salt and pepper to my steaks. I had to put seasonings on myself. Very underwhelming experience for the price.
Second time at this restaurant and love it! It was incredibly noisy even though it wasn't that crazy full.
Service was fantastic. Very nice place. Sat outside and very nice. Steaks a little pricey but there is specials menu that was very reasonable. Overall a great evening.
You can't go wrong at Char. This is our favorite go to. Great menu. The entire staff is excellent. We always feel appreciated whenever we dine here. They treat us like family, better than family.
Went for my anniversary. My wife and I were very happy with the food and service. Great night out all around.
Service, food and place are always top notch. The noise level is sometimes a bit too much. Accoustics are terrible and it's very loud even when there aren't many tables full, the busier the louder it is.
The food quality was not great. The lobster Mac and cheese was incredibly dry and my steak was not cooked how I requested. My husband was not particularly impressed with his meal either. Which is a shame. It’s a nice looking place and the staff was very helpful and attentive. Won’t be recommending.
Steak was tough. Service was good.
Always a great experience dining here. Service is top notch, food is also great. This time however, I was disappointed in my grilled octopus salad appetizer. I look forward to this dish. Sadly this time I was presented with a quarter sized portion of the usual size at the same price. Not only were the octopus pieces so much less, but they were sliced in half along the grain. Once grilled, I ended up receiving 3 dried out half sliced octopus pieces on the plate. So disappointed. I would have rather paid more for the plate I expected than what I was served. I will return to chars but probably wouldn’t order this dish any longer.
There is a reason why Char is my favorite place to dine. They just get it right every time. Service is 2nd to none! So very attentive from the servers, the bussers, the hosts and the runners. The owner makes his way around to greet every guest. Food is always good and such a varied menu.
Char has really come a LONG way since first opening! Last night's dinner was amazing. It was quick and delicious! Wait staff was very attentive. Absolutely no complaints what-so-ever.
Great service, wonderful atmosphere and most importantly, delicious steak!!
Our waitress, Nicki, was absolutely amazing!! Friendly, happy and VERY knowledgeable about the menu. I would go back just to have her serve us again!!
Great food and service!
This is one fine High Quality Restaurant. There are wait staff everywhere. The ambiance, the food, the deserts are all exceptional.
I do have one personal quirk. The dinner rolls are served with those little servings of butter wrapped in paper. You get melted butter all over your fingers attempting to unwrap them. This is not a country diner. This is an expensive restaurant serving quality meals. Why do they scrounge on the butter? Other high quality restaurants serve their butter in a fancy dish with their logo pressed into the butter. Not paper wrapped butter.
Boy am I picky.
Really enjoyed the meal. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The best part is that it’s close to my house.
We eat at Char Steakhouse often. The food is always good, the selection of foods is large, the desserts are delicious, the atmosphere is friendly. The service is good and the servers are all welcoming. And the drinks are excellent. We've never had a bad experience.
The food was wonderful. Michael the waiter
Was wonderful as always!! The deal Tuesday
Always delicious. Cannot wait to go back!!had the chicken martini ,everyone enjoyed their dinners and desserts.
We went last night to celebrate a birthday and the food was absolutely amazing. We all got something different and it was all good. The drinks were even good.
5 stars is never enough for Char! They always out do themselves. Any restaurant should be able to make good food. Char always accomplishes this and more. Their service is 2nd to none, including the Hostess, Bussers and the Runners. They are always very attentive and serve with a smile. My water glass is never less than 1/2 full! The owner walks around and greets his guests and show his appreciation for their patronage. This means a lot to me. When I go out and patronize a business, it's nice to feel appreciated. Char always makes me feel welcome and treats me like I'm the only one in the restaurant!
All good 😊
3 hour dinners not acceptable - especially when your dessert was sitting for so long the vanilla ice cream was a soup
A local gem....good menu choices and a great special on Tuesdays.
Good food, Michael our server offered good friendly service.
Nickie was amazing she is great fit for the service industry.
Char is lucky to have her.
Everyone enjoyed their meal.
As always ,it was great.food wad excellent. Good service.
We love this place! Food is delicious and drinks are made very well. Sometimes it gets really busy and is hard to get parking, which is annoying, but other than that, always an excellent dining experience at Char. We love the filet mignon, truffle Mac and cheese (my husband likes his with lobster), the burgers are delicious as well. Service is good—never have an issue getting anyone’s attention when we need something, especially Jessica, our favorite waitress :)
