I ordered the steamed lobster which I’ve had several times before. It wasn’t cooked quite enough and was not cracked open enough. Everything else was delicious.

Disappointing- potatoes were cold sent them back then they brought another dish out and although there was steam coming off the top once you put your fork in they were still cold.
Spinach was like warm tasty but Luke warm
Steak for 2 was ordered medium rare arrived medium raw. Sent it back sent out new strip and again medium raw - ate the ends because at this point we were starving
Waiter started out very nice once we complained about our food he got defensive
Manager was polite however he came across as bring a little annoyed
$400 later we will not be going back EVER!

It was 5 years since last dined at Char, and the food itself was still fine. Only criticism is the porterhouse, we question the 46oz claim.. If you enjoy steak like we do, it was ok for 2 people but get an assortment of sides to augment. The food itself, a quality meat, cooked nicely and flavorful. May not need steaksauce unless you're into "well done" meats

The ambience is, and has always been, top notch. Sad to see the bar area light, but for obvious reasons we understood.

I rated value at a 3, but for food only. Had I included alcohol... the wine list, bourbon, scotch, rye selection is some of the best in the state that any enthusiast would enjoy. Compared to the price you spend buying some of these from your favorite seller, you will find most within Char at a very good value.

Will be back.

Prices are very high. They charge for every side- mashed potatoes $10.
Food not worth those prices. Ambience was fair.

Limited Menu due to COVID I’m guessing. Felt a little more crowded than it should’ve been.

On our first visit to this steakhouse, we were very impressed. The food was fabulous, especially the lamb chop lollipops. The cocktails were excellent as was all the food and the service. I would go back anytime.

The atmosphere was awesome, and the service were very good. Our steaks were a bit dry, the fries were cold and not crispy. Asparagus was average. Kids loved the burgers.

Christmas Eve for 5 people. Immediately seated. Service excellent and very attentive. Food was excellent. Never rushed in any way. Appetizer were all delicious Dinner entrees of Filet mignon, pork chop and fish were all perfectly cooked and excellent. Sides served family style were all tasty and plenty to share. Highly recommend Char

Char is our favorite restaurant! We usually dine in Raritan and decided to give the Red Bank location a try. It was good, but doesn't hold a candle to the other location. All slight differences (atmosphere, food, service) but enough to make Raritan our preferred.

It was both my birthday and our 5 year anniversary. I really enjoyed the delicious popover as a bread offer. We both had steaks which were very good. I was so full I ordered dessert to come home. The service was excellent. We enjoyed our dining experience there very much.
