Our server was great! Food was overpriced and disappointing in comparison to other steakhouses. We asked to wrap the food that we couldn't finish. When we got home, half of what they were suppose to pack up was missing.

Steaks were spot on. Cooked perfectly and didn’t need anything on them. My daughter loved the pretzel bread. A bit loud due to a table speaking at the top of their lungs!!

I would never spend another overpriced dime at this place again. To begin with, our waiter couldn’t have lacked more of a personality and the way he spoke to the bus boy (who did more than him) was so rude. Honestly the whole dinner we felt really uncomfortable even being there. The food was definitely not worth the price. We only came because we had a gift card. My food was cold and I felt terrified even asking for it to be brought back because of the waiter. The hostess was very nice. Don’t waste your money!

Very disappointed in our dinner. We felt like we were in a cafeteria downstairs. Trying to enjoy Easter dinner with our family. Not exactly a nice setting, food was average, and the only good thing was the desert. We’ve been going there for years. Will never go back to Red Bank

I went here for an anniversary dinner. I was recommended this place with high expectations. Honestly this was a very nice place and I will definitely come again. I had lobster Mac and cheese and the lobster was weirdly cooked. It was hard and I did not enjoy it. That’s ok though because we ate a lot of other foods and I will remember not to get it again. Overall Char is a good place.

We have been to Char many times, and this was by far the best meal we've had to date. The calamari was perfectly crispy and not oily, our filets were cooked PERFECTLY, mashed potatoes were delicious, and our dessert was fantastic. Everything was timed perfectly. Mixed drinks were excellent. We'll be back soon!

We were there for my birthday in March 24 and everyone’s meal was outstanding.

We ordered the surf and turf the delmonico and the lobster Mac and cheese.

Food was very flavorful and staff was very attentive.

Horrible. Service arrogant and rude. Food mediocre at best. Should change name as steak was not charred or cooked properly. Tables dirty and sticky. And expensive. Will never go back.

The steaks were cooked perfectly and very good. The bread was good they do not leave on the table they bring basket around and you select. The plate is not served with anything but a half a bulb of roasted garlic. The sides are on the side it will definitely run you at least 150 or more per couple we only had one drink each. $200 a couple

It was a very pleasant experience and excellent service abs food. Considering the quality the prices are reasonable. My wife doesn’t eat meat so ordered the dish which was good but not outstanding. My steak was wonderful.

The food and our waiter were great, which I believe are the most important things. We sat upstairs, which was fine. Unfortunately, the way they have had to arrange the tables upstairs to accommodate COVID protocols (which were strictly enforced) made it difficult for the servers to bring food out without having to squeeze by patrons in tight quarters. Unfortunately, Char is expensive and they seem to nickel and dime you for every single thing. For instance, a second iced tea is charged all over again as a new drink. Most places just refill you for something non-alcoholic. Also, if you are ordering a $55 steak should they really charge you $2 - $3 extra for a small serving of Béarnaise? But I will end where I started with my opinion that the food and service were great.

Good food, lousy service. Not sure why I haven't learned my lesson here since it's the same every time. I went with my husband as an early 50th bday dinner. I even noted this in the reservation, though it was not acknowledged at all. Our waiter was just awful. He came and took our order and brought us each our glass of wine. Our initial glasses were white and we had ordered steak for dinner, but he didn't leave the wine list with us. We asked for it back and it took forever to get it. Then, he finally took our red wine order, but even though our initial glasses were empty, it took at least 15 minutes to get our bottle. This was after dinner had been served. Super disappointing. Then he pressured us into looking at the dessert menu, despite our reluctance, but then ditched us again while we just waited for him to collect the unwanted menus and bring us our bill. Ugh. Oh, and some of the staff don't even wear their masks over their noses. Really disappointing evening.
