    A very memorable restaurant...Kyle was an excellent wait person...knowledgeable of the menu offerings and wine, attentive yet not overly attentive. The restaurant is lovely, classy and it has a pianist ! Just beautiful and romantic. The menu was perfect and I had the yellow fin tuna with cauliflower...OMG, excellent! My beau had a perfect fillet. We started with the tuna appetizer which was more like a work of art...The wine menu is on a tablet and you can scroll through the bottles...I really liked this way of choosing wine. All in all, outstanding.

    We visited Charley G’s to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. The ambiance was very pleasant. Staff was very attentive and gracious. They were very friendly, kind and took great care of us. The food was pleasant and refreshing. I also appreciate the staff for taking an extra step and decorating our table with a few little heart confetti pieces. That was a sweet thought. Over all we had a very nice experience.

    Food is amazing! Was a little disappointed in service and atmosphere. It was our anniversary and I have been before (and seen first hand)and read reviews) of the table being ready with Happy Anniversary cards, confetti, on the table, upon arrival. This was not the case for us. Also my last visit the waitress let us know the dish of the day, today was not the case but the same waitress we had was sure to let the next table know. She was quick to pass to make sure the food was okay but quick to go before we needed anything else…. Yes I still tipped well, but not sure we will be back. Doesn’t seem every table gets the same service.

    Charley G's Seafood GrillResponded on April 28, 2022

    Hi Ms. Duhon, thank you so much for brining the service issue to our attention. We will be meeting with the management team and your server to further discuss your evening. We do put anniversary/birthday cards on the table for the reservations that alert us that they are celebrating an anniversary or birthday. We noticed you made your reservation online and didn't make mention of it. We hope you do decide to dine with us again and if it's for a special occasion just let us know a little beforehand and we would love to decorate your table and have a signed card waiting on your arrival.

    Biggest problems are the service and a non descriptive menu. Re service: with a head waiter and two service helpers, our wine glasses were not refilled. Only as my husband reached behind him for the bottle did the waiter come to do his job. We were delivered espessos, needed sugar. By the time our request was fulfilled the expressos had to be replaced as they were cold. Re menu. Menu offered duck. No explanation of what part of duck. Menu said pineapple wood grilled shrimp. Assumed pineapple wood, not pineapple glaze. Had to send back because the menu did not say pineapple glaze. Lastly an over complicated computerized wine list

    It was my first visit to Charlie G’s and I was very disappointed. I am aware that restaurants are having a tough time with staffing these days but our server was extremely inattentive to our table and just didn’t seem to care. She made absolutely no effort beyond the absolute minimum and seemed genuinely unhappy to be there, she would consistently walk through the room and completely ignore our table. I may give Charlie G’s another try at some point in the future but, there so many truly outstanding restaurants in Lafayette, I am not really sure why I would do so.

    First the negatives- we were sat at the closest table to the entry even though we made reservations a month in advance and noted it was a celebratory dinner (birthday) just above us was the piano player which was not only loud but absolutely horrible- it seemed as though it was “Charlie Brown” music the ENTIRE evening. We requested to moved after our 2nd course and our server moved us to the opposite end of the restaurant. The music was tolerable from the distance because you could hardly hear him. POSITIVES- SERVICE AND FOOD WERE OUTSTANDING!!!! the service was well orchestrated, not only were they attentive but very personable. The wedge salad, turtle soup, foie gras and steak were all perfectly prepared. Charlie G’s is a wonderful restaurant especially if your a “foodie”. I would Highly recommend this establishment!

    Our waitress did a poor job. Restaurant was slow so she should have been on top of it. Ran out of water twice. Asked to have bread twice. When she delivered it with the meal, she had taken our clean bread plates away and did not return with any when she finally brought the bread. Ordered a single shot of neat whisky which was absolutely watered down did not even have a hint of whisky..……with a bug floating in it. I ordered a single crab cake and two were delivered. This is NOT at all Charlie G’s standard. Disappointing service.

    Mr. Graul, We are very disappointed to read about your experience. You are definitely correct, this is not at all close to the standards we set for our selves and we are truly sorry.
