Made a reservation and arrived on time. Waited at least 15 minutes for a booth. As we waited, there were 3 empty booths that we could see and at least 2 bus boys and a hostess just standing around. Also during this time, my daughter opened/held the door for two elderly ladies in walkers while the busboys and hostess were less than 15 feet away.

Finally sat at a different booth and had a fabulous waitress Brianna. Wonderful food, great service.

I normally give Cunningham restaurants 5 stars on everything but they were a little off on this occasion. Food was good but the asparagus was uncharacteristicly stringy and tough. Service was also a tad slow.

Made a reservation days in advanced. Arrived on time and still had to wait 15 minuets for a seat. Waited another 5 minutes for water, 15 minutes for a kids chocolate milk, and only had 4 menus for our party of 6. Food did arrive in sufficient time but service in between was severely lacking.... not to mention the wait time for the check after we completed our meal. Very disappointed in the service level this evening and lack of preparation.

I was very disappointed in our service. Food was great! Service was TERRIBLE! Drinks were wrong, food was forgotten, we asked the waiter THREE times for our bill and waited 30 minutes to get it. We got enough points to receive a gift card... waited another 20 minutes for that and they sent it to the wrong table initially. This was my mother’s day meal and I was extremely disappointed!

I love Charbonos and we eat there often. This was our first time for brunch. It was $25 a person, which is not steep, but drinks are not included. Our party of three, plus tip was $100. The food was good, but not replenished very fast so that we could not try some things. The set up was crowded and hard to get around. We had reservations, and were seating right away even though we were 15 minutes early. All in all, a nice place, and I will return, but probably not for brunch.

Charbono's (or really anything from the Cunningham Restaurant Group) is a favorite. Went specifically on Mother's Day because they were having a great buffet at a decent price. Service was great, table was waiting, food was excellent, and a good time was had by all!!

How was our experience? In a word, disappointing. I drove from Ohio to take my mother here for Mother's Day. The dining room was overcrowded - maybe extra tables were brought in to squeeze more business for the holiday? The prime rib was overcooked and cut by an untrained kid. The food was mostly bland and uninteresting. One vegetable was available with dinner. I hope this spot just had a hiccup trying something new for the weekend and their regular dining experience is what they were built on. It would be a shame to continue on the path we experienced this week.

This restaurant, while moderately good, is part of the Cunningham Group, which is why we chose it. It is not as good as the others we have been to. The chicken Parmesan I had was way overcooked and the pasta was just a big lump of stuck-together spaghetti under the chicken. The breading on the chicken tasted burnt. The 3-dip appetizer was good and the cocktails were good, and the waiter in the bar was really great. Overall, it was adequate, but not worth driving all the way to Avon for.

Our food, excellent, as usual at most Cunningham restaurants. Personally, my horseradish salmon with asparagus substituted for Brussels sprouts, was the best. The service for the 4 of us seated in the bar area, was not so good. Our server obviously very rushed, perhaps an off-night or someone else didn't show for work. We had to repeatedly ask for more water, bread, dipping sauce and she initially skipped a cocktail order. Just not up to expected service.

Usually go to Boulder Creek in Brownsburg but they were booked so we thought we would go to Charbanos. Dissapointed as the quality of food was not the same. They were really busy. But service was good.

Great restaurant. The food is fabulous! The only thing I was disappointed in was the vegetable soup that I paid a $2 up charge for. I don't think the little cup of soup should have been an up charge, and it was just OK. Will definitely go again though as the restaurant was very clean and nicely decorated.

Had to reschedule due to weather and went the next day. Had us set up to go in the bar. Not, a good choice for us and asked for something else. They did seat us in a booth. Food and drinks were good . The chicken could have used more flavor and was a tad over cooked. The waiter was awesome and the place appeared to be very clean. Prices were reasonable. May try it again as this was our first visit.

My husband and son took me to Charbono's for a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Of course, no wait. We were seated in a booth in the bar, as requested. Great ambiance and great food. The waitress was attentive and very knowledgable about the menu. The cost was mid-range, as expected. Overall, a wonderful dining experience.

Excellent as always. Love the early bird menu. Smaller portions but exactly the amount of food we really need to eat. Excellent price too. The horseradish salmon with Brussel sprouts is my favorite. Others had steak, shrimp, chicken entrees off this menu. Everyone was extremely happy with their meals. They offer these early bird entrees Monday-Friday from 4:00-6:00. Bread with oil is the best of any restaurant around too. I’ve never had anything here I didn’t enjoy.
