Death by Potatoes
The food never disappoints. The steaks are always great, and I’m impressed by the quality of their seafood. The oysters and the shrimp cocktail are delicious! The service outdoors was especially great, with Dario being an attentive and awesome server. I love how their outdoor seating is surrounded by heat lamps and standing fire pits which make it really comfortable and warm during cooler nights.
This was one of the BEST experiences I’ve had I. A couple of years. New staff is amazing from lead server to assistant. Bartender was amazing and actually asked if the drink should be up or on rocks! The food was perfectly cooked, perfectly timed and everything was delicious. And on a Saturday night!!
The water, staffs ambiance, and food quality were all exceptional.
Fabulous, as usual. My husband commented, “the steaks here are “the best” I’ve ever had! Always consistent. And who doesn’t love the popovers! Thanks Luciano and staff for always making every visit special!
From the greeting to the good night upon leaving this was a great experience, Jose took very good care of us, timing of drinks and food delivery was excellent. We will be returning
Great service and really good food.
Seating was pretty close together which didn’t make for a private and special atmosphere
Not impressed by the food
First time, last time. Went for our anniversary. Super loud, adjacent party just screaming obscenities, F* bombs. Shows the clientele it attracts. $50 steak was 50% fat. Left Hungry. Only person that asked us of how things were was the kind hostess as we were leaving. Too little too late.
Dined outdoors on a beautiful evening. Ambience was great. Service was warm, professional and attentive. The food was delicious and steaks prepared perfectly. The wine list is unambitious, but serviceable. All in all, a superb steakhouse experience.
Fantastic as always, service cannot be beat. The food was just delicious and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is just beautiful. I’m do happy that covid did not close down this restaurant it would have broken my heart.
Great Dinner and Service as I celebrated my wife birthday
Delicious food, excellent service! Will definitely recommend
Beautiful patio! Excellent & attentive service from Dario our server, & the food is always excellent!!
Steaks were excellent. I had the Delmonico which was delicious. My husband had the cowboy steak also excellent. Francis was wonderful with great recommendations. Would definitely return.
Very disappointed. I ordered Lobster Macaroni and Cheese. The half of a tiny lobster was dry and the macaroni had no cheese flavor. The only thing I enjoyed was the pretzel roll. The price was very high for the food I got.
We ALWAYS love eating at Char. The service is always wonderful as is the food!
Amazing tasting! Great ambiance!
The food was so delicious! The service was amazing! Our waiter Epah was so nice to our children. The wait time for our food was so reasonable! Will go against
Server was very rude. Only checked in on the guest that were next to us. Never asked how our food was, didn’t ask if we need anything.
Celebration. Our daughter announced she is expecting !!
The food was delicious and not only that our waitress princess was the best ever I highly recommend asking for her when going here
Excellent steaks and cooked as ordered.
Very professional staff and excellent food.....the outside dining area is terrific and feels like it will be useful into the winter months
If you want a celebratory steak, this is the place to be. Their beef and its preparation highly surpass any other steakhouse I've been to. And the roasted garlic that comes with it is always a delicious complement!
Birthday for mom
Excellent Steaks; cooked perfectly and well-seasoned. Appetizer salads were satisfyingly large. Desserts were large for the price. Highly recommended.
Potato side order was incorrect, waitperson was overwhelmed, forgot I had requested birthday treat for my girlfriend, drink order was wrong. Aside from that, wine and steak were great.
Birthday dinner for my wife. Excellent service and food as always. We look forward to our next visit. Never disappointed here.
Not one person who worked at the restaurant was wearing a mask. Very disappointing for a great restaurant like this. Won’t be back until COVID is over.
Jose was a wonderful server!
Overall the experience was great but I was a little surprised that the dress code had changed. People were arriving in shorts and tee shirts but it was outside so I thought that it was acceptable in that environment.
Our waiter was great and the food was excellent as always.
Good food and nice outdoor . Staff very kind. Parking lot.
1st...The Service was Great....Let's talk about the dinning experience. Family of 8 for a Birthday celebration and all-thou a good-time...a few slip ups.
1. Order NY Strip (14oz) Prime, dry-aged and not very flavorful cut. As a Steak Guy the Low quality of meat showed.
2. Ordered Italian Hot Peppers and they are stuffed with Anchovies (Even the server was shocked). Opened 1 pepper and stopped as no one eats Anchovies from our party.
3. Pecan Bread Pudding was not ordered and the server said it's on the house(BD freebie?). This was on the bill and had to remind staff of this (was then removed).
When the bill $345 was being reviewed the Peppers remained on the bill. At no time the server said this would be removed (uneaten item). A oversight or Management to WAIT for someone to speak up. Since it's Char the costumer MUST speak up as Upscale establishments would have removed this. We are not going back as I have mixed issues with the Quality of meat Char is using. Matt's Red Roster and Steakhouse 85 are much better.
Out waiter Sergio was awesome! He made great recommendations and was a pleasure to have as a server.
Very nice place with great ambiance. Good attentive service. We had Cowboy Ribeye and NY strip both cooked to order. Great sides. Pricey for sure, but so are all steakhouses.
Great experience overall. I took my girlfriend out to dinner for her birthday. She absolutely loved it. Our server Justin was very attentive and informative throughout the whole night. He gave us several recommendations from their specials and regular menus, and it all tasted amazing. Will definitely be coming back.
Excellent service , ambiance and meal was delicious
Excellent food & service .
Always have a great experience. Food always cooked to perfection.
The absolute best filet migion!!! The sides were great and our waiter was fantastic!
