Was greeted and taken UPSTAIRS! , Even tho there was seating ( As in Available) tables on the Main Floor ! . Oh Just in case you may think I didn’t have a reservation I DID ! . So let’s get back to the UPSTAIRS! It’s Dark Cold No Ambiance AT ALL ! , There was one party on one table and many other tables available on this second floor . Just wondering it’s October 2020 in the Middle of a Pandemic “ WHY SIT NEXT TO ANOTHER PARTY !!! I HAD TO ASK FOR ANOTHER TABLE , And WAS GIVEN ATTITUDE WITH EYE Rolling! Sat on another corner SAFE , Cause I Don’t want to become ill . The food was delicious and the server was great and understanding. Would I recommend, No I don’t till there is a answer that is believable as to why was my party was taken UPSTAIRS in The COLD AND DARK Area !!! No Ambiance at just seeing the food service works walking back and forth .

Grizzly, raw steak. Ordered cooked medium. Didn't bother sending back because the cut of meat was so bad. 5 of us went out and all had very small portions. Very expensive meal that was mediocre at best. This was also the day before all the restaurants were ordered closed so I will give them an exception, maybe they weren't expecting people to actually eat out although they were very crowded.

There was a smell from somewhere near our table that was similar to cleaning solution. We asked about it, but it was not addressed. The meal was mediocre, the service was very good. Overall, fair review.

Didn't have their act together. Had a reservation but waited 20 minutes for a table that was unoccupied the entire time we waited. Waited for a drink order to be placed. Long wait before stale bread was placed on our plates. Stale as in it crumbled into bread crumbs. Pointed it out to our waitress who said she would report it to the manager. Stale bread bread sat until table was cleaned. Had an apology for the wait on our drinks to arrive. Waited for our food order to be placed. Waited for dessert menus. Waited for our check. Way too much waiting. Our entrees were tasty but the experience of long periods of time without drink and food spoiled our experience.

I chose Char to have dinner with my immediate family for my 50th birthday. Our waiter was very nice, very informative about the menu & attentive.
We knew dinner would be filling so we split an order of Lamb Lollipops and the Maple Glazed Bacon between the 5 of us. All were absolutely delicious.
4 of us ordered steaks which were cooked and seasoned to perfection. My son had the burger which was both delicious and huge. Our sides were mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin and broccoli and all were very good. We didn't order dessert because I already had a cake at home but our waiter brought me out ice cream with a candle on the house and my family sang happy birthday. It was a nice touch. This was our 2nd visit to Char and I can honestly say this is our new "go to" steak house in the neighborhood. No need to go back to the other place that has been declining. Highly recommend Char!

I had gone to Char for a late Valentines Day date and I think we’d found our new date spot. It was incredibly relaxing and romantic. The food was just beautifully done and delicious. The waiter we had explained everything very detailed and recommended the best wine to go with our food.
Definitely a must see

Our 2/9/20 experience was poor. Upon checking in I was asked no less than 3 times if we had a reservation. After responding in the affirmative each time, another girl picks up her head from her computer screen and says, "really, do you have a reservation?" Not sure if I was on candid camera or these amateurs were not speaking the same language. Next, we ask to be seated upstairs. That could not be accommodated. Then when we are led to our table on the first floor. I asked to be seated in the table in the corner. I was told someone reserved that table. Finally, we settle in and our waitress comes over. She was great. The bread basket was brought over. The bread was not fresh. The wedge salad was served with an odd vinegar blue cheese. There was almost no bacon on the salad and literally one tiny shred of onion. Not good. We all ordered steaks. Filet mignon for my wife and kids, and a delmonico for me. While I know that delmonicos are not the leanest, I asked if they could pay special attention to make sure I got one that was on the leaner side. We all asked for medium on the steak temperature. When the food came out all steaks were rare. My delmonico was all gristle and fat despite my request for a leaner piece. The manager, a young woman, comes over and in so many words gave us the "what do you want me to do about it" treatment. She took back the filets and cooked them some more. I switched out mine for filet mignon and lobster tail. The filet came back cut in half. In the interim, the sides that were originally served sat there and got cold and we asked for replacements. While the recooked steaks sat on the table getting cold as we waited for our sides, the new sides and my surf and turf came out for 20 minutes later. I expressed my dissatisfaction with the timing and quality of how things were handled. The manager was rude and walked away. For 2 young kids and my wife and I, I spent almost $300.00 on disappointment. Sorry Char, you lost previously loyal customers.

Very good service and atmosphere while dining. Food was outstanding. Ordered the Porterhouse for 2, which was cooked perfect. There was a little more fat then I’d like to see but very minor issue. Overall 4/5 stars overall. Would dine with Char again.

But, the petite filet, which was ordered as Medium, was served as medium rare and had to be sent back. Other than that, the oysters were fresh and the service was very good; very attentive.

We were rushed throughout our dinner. We had to order all the courses at once and the food came out immediately. We weren’t even finished with our salads and they were taking our plates to serve the main course. The wait staff kept taking dishes before we were finished. After we paid the bill when our water glasses were empty they cleared the glasses which was their hint to leave. I spent $400 to be treated in a 2nd class manner. Unacceptable!
