    Haven’t been here in a couple years and was excited to go back. Normally the food is really good. Was sad to see they took one of my favorites off of the menu. We ordered shrimp cocktail that was over cooked and was not peeled. The produce for our salads was really dingy and old. Steak was amazing as per usual. Carrot cake looked beautiful was but the cake itself was very bland. They were out of half of the items in the menu and were out of many alcohol options as well. I’m sure we will be back, but last night was not the restaurant I remembered. Hopefully it was just an off night! Staff were super friendly as usual and service was great! The only thing that was off putting was we had a reservation for 7:00pm. The food took a bit to come out (which was no issue), but the staff were closing the place down, turned the lights up and the music off before we even got our entrees. This has never happened before, but it was super awkward.

    We had a reservation for 7:30 but had to wait 20 minutes for our table. It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive after we ordered. The food is great but the service was pretty poor. This caused us to rush through our dinner and take our deserts home as we were running very late for another event for my daughters birthday. I’ll chose another place next time.

    The dinner was outstanding as was the service. The dessert tasted like it was prepackaged. I have never seen tiramisu served with a blob of chocolate pudding. There was a tiny spot of espresso on the lady fingers that were otherwise plain and crunchy. The whipped cream tasted like it came from a spray can. The carrot cake was dense. I wouldn't order dessert there again. However, we love the Cunningham Group restaurants and would try Charbonos again for a meal.

    This was our first trip to Charbonos as it was my wife’s birthday. The food was good but not good enough to hurry back. Our server seemed a bit nervous and missed on a few points. We had to ask for drink refills and he never brought the to go box my wife requested. Further he never asked if we wanted dessert which we would have purchased. We will probably return again to try some other dishes.

    The food and service were absolutely amazing! We ordered calamari as a starter, and ribeye steak. The waiter was very attentive, and the food came at all the right times. The steak was extremely tender and seasoned perfectly, and the herb butter was to die for. My only negative comment is that the lemon blueberry cake should be renamed vanilla blueberry cake because there was absolutely no lemon flavor, and it was not very good. We are already talking about returning, but we will skip the cake!

    The whole experience was a comedy of errors from them serving ( and charging me for) a half glass of wine as it was all they had left of that particular one to getting one of my dining partners order totally messed up and weren't particularly professional about replacing it. They did comp it though. Our server must have been really new but he was very polite even if not well informed about the menu. There were several other small annoyances. For the prices I expected a lot better service and food. I will not be going back.

    We love Charbonos but we’re highly disappointed last night. Chicken dishes were over cooked. The Marsala was lacking in flavor. We mentioned this to our server who just said, “Ok”. Not the typical experience we have at Charbonos. Week try again in the future hoping it was just an off night for the staff.

    The Tuna appetizer was VERY good. The bread and oil was a nice treat. My wife's pasta dish was rich and flavorful. My Caesar salad was OK but way too much dressing. I couldn't finish it because the Romain was soggy and soaked by the time I was half done. The Calamari was meaty. Some may love it Charbono style but, it was no longer crispy by the time they added their special sauce. I'd suggest serving the sauce on the side so we have a choice

    Charbonos - AvonResponded on December 15, 2022Bill, Thanks for the feedback on the Calamari and the Caesar. I will be sharing this with our chef and culinary team. Cheers!

    We both ordered the evening special of “Seafood Pasta” and it was outstanding. Great flavor, plenty of pasta and generous portions of shrimp, lobster & crabmeat. Bread pudding for dessert capped a fabulous meal. Service was also great from “Jules.” We always try to sit in her section due to her prompt attention, quick service and friendly manner. Overall, a great evening, Charbonos never disappoints!
