Tenderloin sandwich was just okay. Salads were goo.

It was my birthday celebration! We were overall very pleased. Interestingly enough, we seem to get the same waiter every time we come which is only about twice a year. I think his name is Calvin. He does a great job. Food was delicious. The only adverse thing we encountered was a long brown hair in my husband’s ice cream which we didn’t notice until he was done. Other than that, considering all the precautions with C19 we were fairly pleased.

Nice place. Staff was excellent, food was good, but steaks could have been cooked a little better.

IT's still weird to go out with restaurants at a reduced capacity. But, the staff was great and the food was good. the only thing is the chicken was on the edge of overcooked. But it was not burnt and still tasted good. We will be back very soon.

We have noticed an overall decline in the quality of the food over the past year and the last time it was not very good. Charbonos used to be one of our favorite restaurants and we frequent Cunningham Restaurants, but I am just stating the facts.

This is our favorite restaurant so we are frequent diners. We have never had a subpar experience and sometimes overeat so we can't enjoy the delicious creme brulee for dessert.

Ordered the artichoke dip for an appetizer. It was served cold, the cheese wasn’t even melted and the bread served with it was too overpowering with spices. Ordered prime rib, it was tough and served luke warm as well. Server forgot our salads to be served before the meal, but gladly removed from check.

Food was exceptional as always. Our party of six were put in a "banquet room" which was dull and lacked the ambiance of the main restaurant. I love the lively atmosphere of this restaurant and as such was disappointed with this seating arrangement.

Came to Charbonos for a late Valentines Day date and was not disappointed. Service was great, drinks were excellent, food was outstanding. We had a wonderful time. We visit a lot of the CRG restaurants, but this was the first time at this specific spot - it was another great one. We’ll be back!

Had dinner for 3 over Valentine's day weekend. Everyone was polite and attentive. Our server was on top of everything for us, and helped my husband's grandma with her questions so graciously. Crab cake for an app was wonderful. The complimentary bread and oil is so delicious. All of us got great portions for our entrée, we all took leftovers home. We did save room for tiramisu, which was absolutely perfect.

The food and service was outstanding! The only issue we had was where we were seated at the restaurant. We were seated in the front part of the restaurant next to the big windows. It was super cold outside and that section of the restaurant was also super cold. I’m sure there wasn’t much they could do about that, but it did have a negative impact on our experience. It was also valentines night and really busy so we didn’t want to bother with requesting a different table.
