Came for Mother’s Day and really enjoyed the food, discovered delicious redfish, and had a very pleasant wait staff member.
Crab benedict a bit fishy and bland, food turnaround time a bit slow, server was quite good, a bit loud. We will return tho.
First time visiting was great, this time not so much. The food presentation was off and the items were not prepared like they were the time prior. It was a holiday so we were understanding and will try it again.
Cajun saute' described on menu as crawfish tails, lump crab meat, and sausage. No visible crawfish or crab meat in the dish. They did go back and bring some when I questioned it. I like Char and will eat there again, but I will never order this dish again and would not recommend it.
Enjoyed the early seating, well coordinated brunch, great service. While my tuna in the Nicose salad seemed a little tough, the manager quickly changed it out for fresh side of salmon and it was great after that. Husband loved his eggs Benedict Florentine. MIL liked her eggs, sausage. All was very good.
Phenomenal service and food! The Mac-n-cheese is to die for!! Everything is good, fresh and delicious.
Service and Food were great as always. A little on the noisy side but that is kind of good to hear after a challenging pandemic year :)
Service was a bit slow but overall experience was tremendous.
Went for Mother’s Day
It was another great meal at Char! Waitress was very good! The pea soup was too spicy, but we’ll be back!
I just moved home from the service and went to dinner with my sister and a friend. So this was my first dining experience in Huntsville in the last six years. I was bothered that our server didn't offer to get us anything other than water while we waited on our guests. I did ask for a dozen of oysters while we waited as I had not eaten all day but they were never brought to the table. We ordered a bottle of wine and drinks once the rest of our party arrived. Our server seemed much to busy to provide us the level of service I felt we should have been offered with how much we spent during our visit. I got the scallops and while they were okay they were EXTREMELY heavy handed on the salt. I am a person that loves salt on my food and the salt was way too much for my taste. I don't recommend the scallops if you don't like salty food. I also felt like our time spent during our visit was much longer than anticipated. Our reservation was at 8 and we had plans at 9:45 which seemed like ample time however we did not leave the restaurant due to our servers performance until 10:15 which caused us to miss our reservation for our next plans. The experience overall was good however I wont be rushing back. The money spent was not worth the level of service or the food in my opinion.
Char is our go-to restaurant for special occasions. Another fantastic meal last night as we celebrated Mother’s Day.
One concern is that it was LOUD last night. Crowds are back now as COVID19 retreats, and the noise level was rather objectionable last night. I don’t know of a quieter 5-star food place in Huntsville, but it would be wonderful to have a quieter, more romantic atmosphere.
Cannot beat the food. Chefs are fantastic.
As usual, the food was delicious and the service and atmosphere perfect! Char is my very favorite restaurant and I’ve been to many restaurants throughout the US and the world. The steak is prepared perfectly every time we go. I like medium rare, my husband likes medium and they’re consistently spot-on. Nice wine lists, amazing desserts if you save room for it! You won’t be disappointed.
Great service. Crab cake use to be the best we have eaten but this time appears the recipe changed and was good not great. Salmon was excellent
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.
Thank you for your recent visit to Char! It's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your overall visit, although I'm sorry to learn that your salad was missing one of its components. Furthermore, it sounds like we didn't handle the situation as we should have once the omission was brought to our attention. Please accept our sincerest apology for our shortcomings in rectifying this for you while you dined with us. I have shared your comments with our management team for review.
Zac was amazing. Great server -very knowledgeable about the menu, the wine, and especially the dessert! Thank you Char for coming to Huntsville we needed you!
Our server was OUTSTANDING. I would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant to anyone. Taking a group of friends to eat lunch there next week.
I really love the environment and the staff. The food is outstanding. Char has to be one of my most top 5 favorite restaurants!
I would highly recommend Char! From the moment we entered the restaurant- we received very good customer service! The piano was an added touch! Will definitely come back!
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.
Prime rib is no longer any good. Waiter was unattentive
Hi Sharon, I'm so sorry to hear that! We never want guests leaving disappointed with their experience. Please know that we are always happy to replace any dish you do not absolutely love, as our goal is to provide our guests with a five-star meal each and every time, We hope you will come back soon for another visit, and please do let us know if there is ever anything we can do to improve your experience in any way! Thank you again for your patronage and review.
Food was better than expected! Loved the atmosphere and our service was great
Char is one of our favorite restaurants...food is fantastic, ambience is perfect for any occasion and the service is always top notch!
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.
Scott was our server and he did an amazing job!! Love the food and cocktails there.
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.
Surprisingly high level of dining with informal feel. Good value, excellent food and service, and pecan pie to die for (or at least fight for).
Delicious dinner and great service
Very nice enjoyed it. Waitress was great my husband glasses felt on the floor waitress call us at home to let us know. Great service and food
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?)
Wonderful meal and great service!
The food and service were wonderful!
I was not as impressed by the decor.
Absolutely the best food in town! Husband had the shrimp and grits and I had the filet. Highly recommend both. Andrea, our server, was excellent. Wonderful night out!
We went to celebrate birthdays and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Our waiter, Zach, was attentive and had excellent recommendations. The food was divine! Highly recommend.
Always a pleasure to eat at Char
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.
Very nice experience, our waiter was very informative and attentive. We will definitely be back. The food was phenomenal!!
