Great prime rib and steaks as usual. The vegetables were fresh and made perfectly. The salads were fresh and the bread was hot and soft. Delicious!!

I had a great Friday night dinner the only less than great moments were when we arrived with reception stand. They got a bit wrapped up in trying to accommodate a large party with the employees working reception and failed to acknowledge the other guests waiting to check in with even an hello or we’ll be right with you.

CHARBONOS never fails in safety, service and quality of food. Can’t beat Wednesday night half price martini night.

We had Tuscan Penne and Chicken Alfredo. Both very good. I thought they were a little bland, but still very good. I'm a garlic person, so I could have stood a little more garlic flavor in the dishes. Overall nothing to complain about. Our server was awesome. She was attentive, but not too much. She kept drinks full and had nice conversation. It's all good food, but I think a little pricey.

First visit, but a long-time fan of Cunningham restaurants. However, this one is not up to Cunningham standards. An excellent server couldn't overcome lackluster food. Both pasta dishes we ordered were way over-cooked, rendering the pasta a tasteless mush. Mine was a penne dish, but the pasta was definitely not penne. We're not ones who send food back, but maybe we should start. Of course, Covid has killed the ambiance nearly everywhere, but the room didn't seem to be all that impressive, even in good times.

This was an excellent way to celebrate my birthday with my wife. Although this was during the COVID-19 crisis, the food was great along with the wines we chose with our meal and the service was outstanding. It would be a place to dine for any reason, not just special occasions, and come away impressed with the experience.

Service and staff was professional and friendly. Typically have dinner here but met friends for lunch. Lunch menu is different but had several diverse choices. Prices and quantities were reasonable, but breaded tenderloin was "underwhelming" at best. First meal I have had here that was not top quality - most are very memorable. Sandwich was acceptable but have come to expect more form Cunningham Restaurants. Will certainly return but likely opt for a different selection.

Nate was our server and he did a great job! The food was fantastic and we felt safe the entire time. We haven’t been out much as a family during the pandemic. Cunningham restaurants has been our go to place for takeout and dine in during this time. This was our first visit to Charbonos and we can’t wait to come back.

Carter was an excellent waitress. She attended to all of our needs. Horseradish salmon was excellent as were the brussel sprouts. The downside is there were shortages on the draft ale's but that's understandable due to the pandemic. Certainly not the last time we will be there.
