    Our waitress, Amber, really did a great job, made some excellent suggestions and had a wonderful attitude. My companion and I both ordered the house salad, filet mignon with baked potato. Everything was delicious. We did not order an appetizer, but bread was provided and it was fresh and warm. We ended with pecan pie with ice cream for dessert and it was decadent! It was worth the two hour drive.

    Me and my bf went back again cause the first time the food was amazing but this time my pork chop was very dry and charred I was very disappointed but he enjoyed his food. The server helped and fixed my problem without any issues or hesitation. Besides that still my favorite and best place to eat.

    My overall visit was a bit mediocre. The service was great, however the Espresso martini and the food was disappointing. The espresso martini was white and tasted like cream and vodka, no coffee flavor at all.

    The food was cooked to perfection and the house salad was the best I have ever had in a long time. Our waiter was extremely friendly and kept the cocktails flowing. Try it you will not be let down. This was a business meal with a large client and they had never been here before and were very complimentary of my choice.

    Ordered drinks and appetizers first - party of 6. Drinks came out first minus 1. Appetizers immediately followed and entrees came 4 minutes later. Wasn’t enough room on the table for everything. My French chef father-in-law called them Speedy Gonzales.

    Hi David, thank you for your recent visit to Char. We appreciate you choosing to dine with us! I'm sorry to learn about the timing snafu between your appetizer and entree courses. Service should never be rushed, and I sincerely apologize for how this detracted from your overall experience. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, as it is helpful feedback for us to share with our service team so we can improve. We value your patronage and hope you will come to see us again soon!

    This was my first time visiting the restaurant and we had the lunch/brunch menu. I was disappointed with the selections and that they were out of many items. This was disappointing. Server Alexis offered me to order steak from dinner menu but they couldn't accommodate what I viewed on menu prior to visiting. Service was ok and value is good. Would visit for dinner to see if service is better. Black fish was good and crab claws were extremely small. Also they were out of alcoholic bottles (hennessey and some others). We went on a Sunday so the staff should have done a better job on inventory control. I give this a 3 star for MS - we were visiting MS. Also Alexis was not the best server but maybe she had too many tables - her personality was great - she just took too long to check on her table for refills or other items they may needed.

    The service was mediocre at best. The food presentation was poor. The fillet mignon was excellent, red fish was good but the chicken piccata sauce lacked flavor. This was my first time at the restaurant and based on my experience, it would not be my first choice for dining.

    I fear that this once great restaurant is going to end up like our Ruth's Chris. Gone. Our last 2 visits have been so disappointing! Several big groups of loud, very annoying tables. It seems to be attracting a clientele that is known for causing businesses to have to eventually close. It's sad to say, but last night was our last visit

    The staff was terrific! We were greeted at the door by who I assume was management and he stopped by our table too to thank us for coming. Elizabeth, our wait person, was great too. Our reservation was at 6:30 and we were in our car by 7:34. It wasn’t because we were rushed, service was just a well oiled machine. Our steaks were cooked perfectly. I ordered mine medium rare and my husband ordered his medium well and they were spot on. The garlic masked potatoes were heavenly too. My only (very slight) knock is that our booth seat was cracked (on the leather part). Not a big deal at all just surprising as it was a nicer establishment. It was a little noisy, but I could still hear my husband just fine. Overall, I thought it was terrific.

    Our waiter was extremely professional and caring. We eat here several times a year and are have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding! It is a dimly lit environment with jazz music in the background. Gas lanterns line the walls and there is usually a candle at each table. An absolute vibe if you will.

    Usually Char is one of my favorites and I always give 5 stars…but this Saturday night they were apparently short-staffed and VERY crowded. I order the filet which has never disappointed, but tonight it did. Instead of medium rare, it was medium. I ate it anyway because the service was so slow that I didn’t want to wait for another piece of meat when everyone else had their meal. I think our waiter must have been new too because he seemed confused and stressed.
