    Not only is the ambiance comfortable sophistication, but the service and food are top notch. We enjoyed generous portions of well prepared food that arrived hot to the table. We enjoyed a lovely birthday celebration with a move to a booth to accommodate us. My new favorite place!

    We love Char but this experience was underwhelming. The steaks were not prepared to order (medium rare), the dessert was barely warm, and the wedge salad was more like half of a wedge.

    Our food was delicious. The prime rib hash was as good as the description the server gave, although next time a fried egg vs. the poached egg may be requested. The server kept our glasses filled and that's a plus. The atmosphere was serene so that we were able to have great dinner conversation without straining to hear each other.

    Our first trip to Char. It was a very good experience and we will return. The food was excellent and well prepared. Serving size was very good and we were very satisfied. The service was excellent, attentive, informative and pleasant. Dinner for two was approx $140, so not something we'd do regularly, but certainly for a special occasion. This time it was our wedding anniversary. Not real sure why the reservation page at Open Table asks if the reservation is made for a 'special occasion' as there was no acknowledgment whatsoever by the restaurant.

    Nice restaurant with helpful staff. Our order was a simple one, consisting of a Filet and a Sea Bass dish. Filet was cooked as ordered, but arrived with a Blue Cheese topping that we hadn't ordered. A replacement steak was provided, and it was very good. On the menu, the Sea Bass was to include jasmine rice, but instead arrived with a shredded cabbage(?) garnish. Sea bass was good enough, but not something I would order again. We'll give Char another chance, but not a favorite place at this point.

    The steak was good and a good cook on it but the truffle fries were soggy and not enough truffle to taste. The service was good but they were out of two of my three desired dishes. I would try it again but I cannot recommend it without hesitation.

    Hi Beth, thank you for your recent visit to Char! I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your steak, although I'm sorry to learn that your truffle fries were underwhelming. Please know that we are always open to hearing from our guests on what we can improve, and will happily replace anything that you do not absolutely love! I have shared your comments with our culinary team for review. Thank you again for your patronage and feedback; we hope you will return again soon.

    My husband and I both ordered a wedge salad. BOTH of our salads still had the lettuce core attached to the wedge! Totally unacceptable from a fine dining establishment. My daughter’s filet was “gray”. I’ve never seen a gray steak before. Everything else was delicious, and our server was outstanding but that lettuce debacle was almost unforgivable considering our meal was over $230.

    Hi Ginger, thank you for the review! We sincerely appreciate you and your family choosing to dine with us at Char. It's a pleasure to hear that you received exemplary service, but I'm very sorry to learn that some of your selections fell short of expectations. Please know that we are always happy to rectify any errors, especially if a dish isn't served perfectly the first time around. I understand our manager was able to step in while you dined with us to acknowledge our shortcomings and remove the wedge salads and steak from your bill. We are always open to hearing feedback from our guests on ways we can improve and greatly appreciate you taking the time to share yours. Thank you again for your patronage; we hope you will dine with us again soon.
