We had a very nice dining experience. The service was perfect and our steaks were cooked perfectly. We also had cocktails which were served promptly and delicious. The timing of each course was also not an overlap but also no gaps either, nice. The only noticeable critique is we would have enjoyed the music to be louder by a little. Each guest probably has their own preference to the music. Classical is nice or piano.

The ribeye steak was not cooked well. I had to send it back. As a prime rib they did not have any. Then have to have lamb chops

Food is VERY good. My only issue is the lighting. It is so dark it was difficult to read the menu. The service is excellent as well.

The food was very good but the service could use some help. When you walk in to check in for your reservation, there are several people hanging out talking at the front and I assume they are all hostesses?? After being seated, it took 25 minutes to get a waiter and that was after stopping one walking by and asking if someone was working our section. This person had walked by us about 10 times and her answer was "Yes, this is my section, I didn't see you here."

Hi Steve, I'm so sorry to learn that you had a negative experience at Char. Our goal is to provide every guest a high quality meal with service to match, though it sounds like we fell short here. There is no excuse for anything less than friendly, attentive service from the second you walk in until you leave, and I sincerely apologize for failing to get this right. We would love to speak with you to determine how we can regain your trust and patronage.

Thank you for your review! I'm so sorry to hear that your recent visit to Char fell short. While we do our best to plan accordingly for busy weekend nights, we do sometimes run out of product towards the end of a Sunday night. I understand how disappointing this can be, and I sincerely apologize for how this negatively impacted your dining experience with us. Please know this is not the norm here, and I have shared this with our culinary team for further consideration.

Redfish sandwich was tasty-I had it on wheat bread; fries are always good. My m-in-law wished they would offer the chicken salad BLT on a salad instead of sandwich style, tasty to her but filling. Birthday boy (hubby) had excellent Croque Madame.

Great. A rare occurrence-our steaks were overcooked. With just one word to our server we were offered an appetizer and our plates were whisked away to be completely replaced. In 5 minutes the manager was there with apologies and asking if we needed anything else. In 10 minutes our steaks were served and excellent. This is a fantastic restaurant with a talented bar staff. 5stars

We booked a table for 6 and one friend arrived first. She ordered the pork rinds while she waited and the staff in the bar were cheerful , quick and professional. The atmosphere in the bar was friendly and fun. When her friends arrived the appetizer was promptly transferred to the table.
The waiter was Zac and he was very astute with all the menu items, drinks and wines. He made great suggestions and was very efficient and accommodating. He was very attentive but not hovering and was very nice. When our bills arrived they were all correct even though there were 6 people and multiple shareable plates.
The drink suggestions were spot on. The food was beautifully plated and every dish was well executed. We all thought the food was excellent.
The atmosphere feels traditionally elegant but with a trendy look.
Would highly recommend going to this restaurant because it is a great experience and a great value for the money.
