Charcoal BYOB Ratings and Reviews
The meal we had tonight was by far the best we’ve had in a long time. This place is adorable, the service was excellent and the food was amazing. I highly recommend the Honey Crisp Apple Salad and all the pasta dishes. Everyone in our party thought the Cranberry Creste De Gallo (a creamy chicken pasta dish with cranberries) was phenomenal. The most expensive thing we ordered was the Rib Eye and that was fine but not as great as the pastas. The Brioche Donuts were the perfect dessert. We can’t wait for our next meal at Charcoal!
We live locally and had not been to Charcoal since they revised their dinner styling, but we decided to try it based on its excellent critical reviews. Menu was limited, but interesting. Unfortunately, our waitress was of little help in further explaining the dishes and seemed to have little time for us. We shared the apple salad (the only salad on the menu - enough for two, but unexpectedly heavy on the apples, light on the greens) and we both had the homemade pasta (with creamy chicken and bolognese sauces), then shared the carrot cake with ice cream for dessert. Everything was delicious. We did not want to pay $5 extra for bread, and we missed having it. Coffee was served tepid, so we waited for a fresh pot, which eventually we enjoyed. All in all, delicious food, but not much else going for it. Too bad.
Food and service was excellent as usual. Ambiance spoiled by the 3 and 4 year olds allowed to run around and bang toys on the table. A great foodie location getting overrun by parents bringing very young children. Ruins a nice dinner
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!
