Server was totally AWOL which wound up being ok because we caught up with friends but literally could not find the guy. Food was good particularly the ahi appetizer and the cocktail. Good place to eat in Avon, not as good as other Cunningham spots downtown. But with a lack of high end restaurants in the area is the best in the neighborhood.

Have had the prime rib in the past when they had it on special and it was very good. Was not told it was a special tonight so a little disappointed, but found something else on the menu instead. At the end of our meal I heard a different server at the table next to us go over the specials and told them that prime rib was one of the specials that night. Not too happy to find out what I wanted was available, but it appears our server did not know that.

The food was very good and all was fine until we ordered dessert. Right after we ordered dessert Jeff brought our guest checks to us and they were all wrong. He finally got this all straightened out but did have to wait some time for the dessert. When we go back I would not ask for Jeff. He needs more training

It was New Year’s Eve and it took a long time to get our entrees. Our server was apologetic as was the manager and we weren’t in a rush so we didn’t really care. I had a steak w risotto. Steak was undercooked but that’s better than over cooked. The risotto was just warm and sticky instead of creamy. I chose not to send it back as they were obviously busy. The last time I had a meal there, it too wasn’t up to par. Not sure what’s going on but they need to step it up a bit. Also if the manager is going to come by apologizing for how long the meal is taking, offer something. Percent off, dessert, Something.

Our first visit to this local neighborhood. Our server, Dillon, recommended the specials for New Years Eve. We order them both. The aged beef was amazing in flavor and texture the Black and Blue Mahi was a portion size and very flavorful. The service was great and atmosphere was perfect. We look forward to returning!

I had made my reservation over a month ahead, do we could have our favorite server, but when we got there, they had to use her in the bar. I told them if they would have called me to let me know, I would have canceled my reservation. No heads up on the change. They did give us a appetizer for free, but was not happy with the server we got. She was not very friendly, and we were not very happy. Will be a while, before I go back there to eat!!! We have been going every month yo eat there, but not now!!!

Every year our family looks forward to the traditional Christmas Eve dinner at Charbonos. However, this year was a disappointment. It was like they weren't prepared. They didn't offer prime rib, which is a staple for Christmas Eve. The bar didn't have or was out of ginger beer for a Moscow Mule. We were able to grab the last bottle of A1 and that only had enough in it for 1 person. And the chicken alfredo was very bland and doughy. I believe our waitress was the only person waiting on tables in the bar area. We never saw anyone else. Although she did a good job, she was running ragged. Hope next year is better!

We had not rated at Charbonks in over 5 years, and the quality of the food has decreased. The pasta was soggy. The scallops were greasy and sticky. And, the salad was not fresh.
We were very disappointed.
We did have an excellent server.

Got there at 5:00, seating was immediate. Lighting was perfect not to bright, not to dark. Staff was attentive and courteous. Although prime rib was the special, My wife and I chose the 6 oz. Filet Mignon (I've had the prime rib before and the smaller portion is a too generous, I'm a big guy but had to work to finish). The meat was perfectly done, so flavorful and tender. I wish I could cook steaks that well on my grill at home. Wife notice pizza oven in back, oven fired. We plan on returning regularly, want to try the pizza and seafood menu.

Server was busy manager delivered food..I could tell it was under heater for a bit. She came to table and "auctioned" of the food! (Had to ask who had what) I was on the inside, she set my husband's plate down, then mine dragging her sweater sleeve back across my husband's plate and off she went. My vegetables were luke warm and the mashed potatoes were not much warmer. I had the filet, it was just ok.
I wasn't impressed at all with the food or the loud atmosphere. For the price, food just wasn't that good.

Loved 1/2 priced wine bottle Mondays!
Steak was slightly undercooked, but immediately resolved.
Wedge left something to be desired.
Tuna was FANTASTIC!
Pasta was spot on!

Tyler was training and his attention to detail and attitude contributed to a more pleasant experience. Will be back!

Offers cork and carry service allowing the experience to extend to the rest of date night!

A go-to favorite. I prefer sitting in the bar area, as the regular dining area can get too loud for me.
Food is ALWAYS great, service is good and drink prices are fair.

I go here as a regular dining place for myself. They offer a good menu and daily specials. Comfortable and friendly. Management takes notice in what is going on and checks with tables to make sure everyone is happy. They do want to please.
They have a rewards program that capsules all the restaurants in their group and gives you a good return on your purchases.

You won't be disappointed.

We had dinner Saturday evening. I'd made reservations and we arrived 15 min early and they seated us right away. Food and drinks arrived when expected and we received a phone call and needed to leave quickly. The waitress was great at helping with boxing up our food and paying the check promptly. I ordered a smothered chicken breast with my two sides as mushrooms and baby spinach and Parmesan risotto and everything was delicious I will definitely be back and ordering the same meal. Everyone at our table was pleased with their food. I'd say this is one of the best restaurants in the Avon area. Always have great service and delicious food.
