CHAR is always a safe, clean and dependable dinning establishment. I can trust them with excellent food and service when I entertain there. The ambiance is good, except I don’t like the back room. I feel exposed there and there are usually children. I am an older lady and I do not like dinning near children. Too, older people don’t hear well and the acoustics in the back room are poor.

Went out for our anniversary. Ordered piccata chicken and the ribeye steak. Both were amazing. Was seated near a group that was really loud and the server swiftly moved us and even asked the party to quiet down. They never did. In spite of that, we had a terrific meal and amazing service. Char employees did everything they could to ensure we had an amazing experience.

Long periods between checking the table; dessert I ordered as take out was cold and not the quality as months passed. There was a shift meeting right when we were ready to order—bad timing. No one was on the floor with customers. Char is changing, not due to Covid, but some foundational bedrock excellence now just good :-(

The three filets and one black fish served were very good. The sides were poor. I’ve never had creamed spinach with overcooked cheese on top before. The asparagus au gratin was similarly ill prepared.

My wife, daughter and granddaughter enjoyed their desserts.

Our server performed outstandingly.

We had a great time. We live 2.5 hours away but we had been before and wanted to go back because we love Char so much. The service was great but our server wasn’t as excellent as what we had experienced at Char before. He wasn’t rude or anything like that, he just seemed disconnected and just there. This could be from all that has been going on with covid19 and that’s ok. That is the only reason we have a 4 star rating. It will not stop us from visiting again on another occasion.
