    We were expecting a great dinner experience but, sorry to say, we were disappointed. We were almost served someone else's appetizers but I intervened just in time. Then, our entrees were served to customers two tables away and we had an extended wait for our dinners. The steak was good and the potatoes excellent but this was the high point. My wife admitted she's has had much better French onion soup and my brownie desert was only fair. We found out that my daughter had called the restaurant to pay for our dinner but this never happened!!!

    Food was prepared excellent with great taste. However, a lot of confusion and noise on large party that was continually walking by our table upstairs including waitstaff. Service was a little off, we missed a couple of items we ordered, we left waiter know, they still didn’t make the table. If service improved, it would support the higher prices,……

    Food was ok- seated on 2nd floor - early reservation - before 6 - sooooo noisy could not hear waitstaff or dining companions and I have no hearing issues . Service is off - As soon as we sat down / we were asked if we wanted water - yes - bottled flat.. and then left - came back 5 mins later without water and asked if ready to order food .. how about a cocktail first ? Ordered cocktails- still no water .. bread person came and gave us bread .. still no water .. drinks took about 10-15 more minutes - brought the water bottle when the drinks came .. seriously ? Food was mediocre . One of the persons in the party ordered crème brûlée - creamy water underneath the crust .. will not rush back

    Service was terrible. Party of two. Ordered cocktails. One cocktail was served. No mention of second person’s cocktail. As wAiter started to leave I asked where the second cocktail was. Waiter stammered and said it was coming. Watched waiter attend to several other tables before he returned to bar area. Came back to dining room without second cocktail. I looked at him quizzically and he went back to bar area and returned with second cocktail. Ordered 5 shrimp cocktail appetizer . Dinner was served. Appetizer never arrived. Asked waiter. He returned with a single little grilled shrimp to go along with my steak. I told him I didn’t order that-I ordered shrimp cocktail. Told him to forget it and to take it off bill. Waiter asked if it was a special occasion. Advised him it was my partners birthday. Yet no acknowledgement of the birthday happened.

    To be entirely honest I visited Char last year for a birthday and the experience was not desirable. The food was not as flavorful as expected and they forgot to bring out something for my partner's special day. After visiting yesterday for another birthday I can definitely commend that the experience was far better than the last but still disappointing which was a big red flag. I am not one to fuss but they once again forgot to bring out something for my partner on her special day which was incredibly frustrating. I specifically told our server on the side and noted it in the reservation details but yet he did not hesitate to bring one out for the larger party next to us which did not make us feel appreciated as customers at all. Also, be sure to NOT touch the dishes when they come to the table because when my partner received her entrée, she was not advised at all that the plate was in fact blistering hot in which she then burned her hand very badly when trying to reposition the dish. Between the double birthday hiccup and burn to end off the evening, I will most likely not be revisiting for a little while. Overall I would recommend the tasty food but the experience was kind of disappointing which is surprising with the reputation they have.

    We were there this past weekend for my husbands birthday (party of 6 people). Food was good, nothing special. Prices were pretty good. My steak (Cowboy Ribeye) was over cooked. Service was descent, but a lot of little things bothered us. We asked for salt at least 3 times before it was brought over. Drinks took a long time to come after being ordered. A drink or two were forgotten. Again, all small things but they just kept adding up. And here's why I will NEVER go back. I dropped off a birthday cake earlier in the day. I asked the hostess if I should write my name on the box and she said that it was fine and they knew it was mine. After the cake was brought out, the waiter proceeded to tell me that we almost didn't get the cake because they brought it to the wrong table earlier. Thankfully, it said "Happy Birthday Joe" on it and the other customers called it out. I understand maybe they were busy and got confused, but then don't tell me that you almost gave my cake away.

    We were looking forward to going to Char for my husband's birthday and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was really nice, the food was delicious. The steaks were very good, I ordered the surf and turf and the lobster tail was excellent. We ordered the chocolate mousse cake for dessert ( it's usually not my favorite) but it was delicious. We would definitely come back.
