Charcoal BYOB Ratings and Reviews
Another excellent meal. We started with the pot roast beignets, which rocked it the way their trout rillet beignets once did. Pasta and salmon dishes rounded out the meal and were very good. We topped it off with the polenta budino and brioche donuts, two all-time desserts. We celebrated a special occasion, and Charcoal delivered!
Friendly staff is well versed in all menu items and helpful. Housemade pierogi starters are to die for! Entrees are well prepared and all delicious. I find it crazy that one reviewer here complained about the homemade bread being too burned!! Hey people...it's baked here and is awesome with the creamy Vermont butter. Is that you biggest complaint? What's with all the young kids out for late dinner here (some are infants)? I come for a great meal in a great place, not to have kids running around or dropping food and toys. Parents..take them to Chucky Cheese or get a babysitter. Charcoal is BYOB and a great value.
This was our first time dining here since it was remodeled and we had high expectations. We started with the $5 bread which was 4 slices of very basic Italian included with dinner at most every restaurant. Ours was burnt to a crisp. I was excited to see octopus on the menu as it is not often on menus. Theirs was oddly hard and crunchy as well as very small for the price. The beet tartar was a standard chopped, sauced beet over the Italian bread with a dollop of creme fresh. It was decent but nothing special. The entrees were the saving grace. Hanger steak and scallop over pasta were very good. The menu is very tiny as pictured on this site with no additional offerings.
This was my second time dining at Charcoal and I would definitely be back. The dishes are innovative. Fresh, high quality ingredients are conjured by the skilled and talented chefs into outstanding dishes. I loved the option of 1/2 portion serving as the whole portion would be too filling after trying various appetizers and the wonderful, house baked bread. On my last visit the place was fully occupied, no empty tables but there was a shortage of service, which most likely affects overall experience. Better trained, more attentive waiting staff would add to the overall rating of Charcoal.
We have gone to Charcoal for years for breakfast but this was first time for dinner. We had heard good things and the place actually exceeded expectations. Portions are relatively small and it is a bit pricey but, as the old adage goes, "you get what you pay for". Food and service were both outstanding and we will most definitely be visiting again.
Our first visit to Charcoal this past Saturday, November 11, 2017, and it didn't disappoint. Starting with the bread, it reminded me of the bread my grandmother used to make and we all ate it hot out of the oven. Salads, entrees, simply delicious, we will definitely go back, and well worth the 30 minute drive.
Small menu but wonderful food and good service. We were a party of six and everyone had something different and they very much liked their choices. Optional sizes for many of the choices made it nice to be able to sample more than one dish. Would recommend for foodies!
This restaurant keeps getting better and better. Green apple salad with crunchy grains and nuts yummy! The hanger steak with broccolini and hazelnut pesto was the perfect entree. Someone had the hot chicken and we all got s taste. It was moist and tender. Don’t forget their in house baked sourdough bread with Vermont butter. Bread doesn’t get much better than this! AND the donuts for dessert with caramel sauce. Service was very atttentive. BYOB. Try it you won t be disappointed.
We dined there years ago but have not returned for dinner until now. People should be warned that the menu is quite limited and you will either love the concept or dislike it completely
I don't order fish out so I chose not to order an entree Instead I decided to try the bacon bolongnese starter (small size) which was a hefty portion and plenty to eat! I must warn you that it is very rich so bring some wine to cut it! I ordered the apple salad first which I loved
But the best part of the meal was the delicious bread. Worth the money!
Check the menu online before you go just to give you an idea that this place is different! BYOB and also enjoy the view out the window if you can!
With all this I MUST add that I LUV this place for brkfst!!!!!!! Go early or plan to wait forever!
Our first visit to Charcoal BYOB, but certainly not our last. Located overlooking the Delaware in Yardley, Charcoal is located on the second floor (steps from ground level, elevator for those whose mobility is impaired). Dining room is large, with some seating by windows overlooking the river, others in the interior of the room and a counter facing the kitchen. The size of the dining room makes Charcoal a bit less intimate than other fine restaurants. This is more than compensated by the quality of the food and the excellent service. Ingredients are fresh, often local, and imaginatively prepared. Menu modifications for dietary preferences are cheerfully accommodated. Prices are moderate (expect $100-110 per couple for two starters, two mains and a shared dessert). BYO a real plus....get a special bottle from your cellar or wine store to pair with the excellent food here.
Such a great space! Intimate, tasteful, quiet. The service was great, the food was fantastic. The parking situation is a bit prohibitive, and it's a hike from most anywhere, but we'll be back. Highlights were the view, the bread (yes, the bread), beet tartare, and brioche donuts.
