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.
Always a good meal. Our group of 4 had prime rib(excellent), bourbon street pasta (spicy, good flavor), gnocchi, delicious and walleye and vegetables, fish may have been a little done with firm edges but overall a good plate. We will return.
Always a great experience!
Food was excellent! We couldn't have been happier with the service either! Great place
The wait staff and management are awesome. A neighborhood feel, with downtown food quality!
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.
Our server was extremely slow. We were not in a hurry, but 35 minutes to get our first drink and 2 hours for the meal was bad.
Table was ready on time. Beautiful place. Excellent service, Great drinks, superb food. Had the Walleye which was as good as you can get in Minnesota. Easy to find at the end of a strip mall on a main drag.
Service and food were very good. Server did his best to provide all the different options available to us, but we were tired and not really the kind of customers that generated up sales. But our severer, never gave up, giving us all the options available from before diner drinks and apps all the way through dessert, without being overly pushy which earned him a healthy tip, as he tried to generate sales and customer satisfaction.
Great place always great food
My friend and I had a great dinner and sat at a high top table in the bar. The reservation was supposed to be for 3 but one friend had to back out. I did find it annoying that I received an email later that evening saying we did not make our reservation.
Always great food and service!!!
Always a great experience!!
The restaurant wasn't very busy for a Sunday afternoon, but service was very slow. Food was average.
We used Open Table and was delighted to be immediately seated when showing up at our scheduled time.
As always wonderful service and the food was great
have been here many time never disappointed my go to place when we can't decide. service is always top shelf food excellent
Enjoyed the food and company.
Server could have checked us to replenish drinks.
Typically have outstanding service and food. While the food was still good, the service was slow. Don't think they had enough staff that night for the crowd. We enjoy going to all our f the Cunningham restaurants, but were disappointed on Friday night.
I was in the middle of dinner when I got a scolding e mail from open table about not showing up... Ticked me off. I told the restruant we had reservations when we checked in. Servers were great. Food ok.
My wife and I went rather last minute for Valentines' Day, and actually had probably one of the best experiences we've ever had at Charbono's. Reservations were on schedule, the service was prompt and friendly, the food came out quickly and was of excellent quality. We have a wonderful evening!
Great service, great food and for a very busy night it did not take long for our food to be served- favorite local restaurant
My third visit was the worst. Expected better on Valentine Day. Seated at an uncomfortable table with fold down edges that numbed our legs. very wobbly chairs. Felt like they would collapse. Ordered simple lettuce and tomatoes salad and it threw them for a loop. Then ordered a 8oz. Filet med well. It came out bleeding . So they took it and my plate. Left me with a baked potato on a saucer . Finally got my steak on a saucer also. The staff was very good! 2good visits and one TERRIBLE!
Very nice place to dine. We were seated in the back room which was much more quiet than other places in the facility. Food was very good as well as the service.
Valentines Day, they put out extra tables for this day as it gets busy the one we were seated at was wobbly. My husband had to put napkins under it to make it sturdy. He ordered the spaghetti, way too done, kinda mushy, no salt or pepper at our table, we had to ask and it took a while to bring almost done by the time we got it. We did have a reservation as well. We were put by the door so we felt a draft every time the door opened which was often. When we paid our bill, waitress asked for VIP card I didn’t have it, she asked to look it up said she could’t find it and it’s only under my name, but she was like oh well, maybe next time. Also, my husband went to bathroom said it was worse than a truck stop, bathroom disgusting needed cleaned, hope the manager gets this place straightened out!
Food is always excellent and well prepared. Good beer list.
As is typical, this is an excellent place to dine. The only criticism is they fouled up the fact that we were seated causing a note from Open table that we were a no-show. This was however later corrected.
Night before Valentine’s
We enjoyed our valentines dinner at Charbonos and will definitely be back! Food was delicious, our server was attentive, the dessert was delicious as well!
Love that they take online reservations. Definitely helpful.
great as always why I keep coming back the service is top shelf been many times never a bad experience
Wonderful service and amazing food!
Steak was under cooked, mashed potatoes were hard and flavorless. For 91$ On steaks I was disappointed, I’d rather go to longhorn or Texas road house. At least I’ll get more bang and flavor for my buck. Very disappointed in the food, service was good though.
I always come back to Charbono's great value, food, and service. The sourdough bread served hot with dipping oil gets things started in a great way. Everything else is great as well.
Service was fine, food mediocre. First time dining there, don't anticipate returning.
Always pleased with service here...even special requests for an old menu item are honored. Wonderful smothered chicken...excellent Applewood smoked chicken salad.
I was disappointed. I ordered from the devour menu. I realized I orderd from a discounted menu. However, it really showed in the quantity and quality of food. Even the waitress laughed at the size of the dessert.
I ordered the salad/filet mignon/carrot cake option off of the Devour Indy menu on a recent date night with my wife. I was very disappointed with the steak. While it was cooked to a perfect medium rare, the outside had heavy horrible tasting charred grill marks that tasted a little fishy. I have never before failed to finish a 6 oz. steak but I just couldn't get over the awful taste of the grill marks. I was also surprised that there wasn't any kind of sauce for the naked mashed potatoes. The carrot cake was delicious but accompanied by inedible cinnamon-covered carrot slivers that had the consistency of bark. (The waitress said they were fried carrot pieces. I think they were originally the leftover peelings.) My wife enjoyed her entrée (horseradish salmon) and we both enjoyed the atmosphere and service. My wife and I have dined at both Charbonos and Boulder Creek 2-3 times and this was our first disappointment.
Never disappointed with charbonos...the food and service was great!
Great food & drinks! Great atmosphere for date night or meeting up with friends.
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.
