food is always above average.
cocktails are good.
the menu is high quality streaks, pretty fresh seafood, and elevated quasi-creole styling.
service is good to boot.
my only gripe would be that they could give more attention to the quality of maitre damme as they usually seem off - the rest of the staff seems very attentive.

I LOVED my experience at Char! This was our first time dining at Char and it was amazing! The drinks from the bar, the food and dessert were phenomenal! Our server, Mike, was perfect! He made sure we knew about the menu and gave great suggestions for every course. We will be making this our new date night spot!

Food and drink were very good. However I Nisswa salad did not have the fried capers that were advertised to be on it and when I brought this to the attention of my server they made no effort to remedy the situation.
The piano music was louder than necessary.

Fantastic food, excellent service. The cocktails are fantastic, if a bit low on volume. I wish they had absinthe so they could make some more of the classics, but they do have an excellent selection as is. The steaks were tender and perfectly cooked. I highly recommend the cowboy ribeye.

Waitress started off really well with great greeting then it kinda went south. She brought water out quickly. Ordered a tea and lemons and didnt get those until I reminded her when we got our food. Baked potato wasnt cooked all the way and was hard. Steak was good but wasnt a 50$ steak. Dessert was amazing though.

I always order the free range chicken. This time there was something so spicy in the sauce I couldn’t eat it. I didn’t see anything in the menu noting a change to the dish.
Thus won’t deter me from returning though. I think it is a good restaurant and this will make me try something different on the menu.

This is the 4th time I have eaten there. Still very good. A little too much dressing on the salad this time (perhaps I should have ordered it on the side). Also, my wife ordered the scallops again but they were served differently this time. I believe she preferred them when they were served with the (polenta?) as opposed to on a bed of (polenta?)

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here. We got the onion rings as a sampler and they were fantastic. We both then had Ceasar salads which were the perfect portions for a starter salad. We both ordered Filets (I got the bigger one). They were cooked to perfection. We also tried the mac & cheese as a side and they were good as well. We will definitely be back at this restaurant.

Since the COVID-19 demise of Grille 29, the midlevel nice dining experience in the Huntsville area has been throttled down substantially to very few acceptable choices- CHAR fills the void quite admirably. The foid is excellent, the server staff courteous and attentive and the ambience is quite nice.

The shrimp appetizer is out of this world!! I have had both the venison and lamb chops. The version was perfection! The lamb chops were a little fatty.

Loly was an amazing server and led us through every step of the Char Experience. Amazing app recommendations the Fried Green Tomatoes were my favorite. Entrees were delicious and sides and add ons were yummy. Bread pudding was a great dessert but I was too full to finish it. Atmosphere was intimate yet inviting. Definitely will be back!

We celebrated our son’s 18th birthday here and the staff went above and beyond to make it special for him. They all signed a birthday card that was at the table already and lit a candle for him with his dessert. The food was AMAZING!!! We had ribeye, prime rib, and lamb chops- super delicious! On top of it all, our waiter was the best!!! Great interaction, informative, fun, and all around great service!
