Char - Jackson Ratings and Reviews
I made the reservations with the expectation that we would have a table for 6.
However, we were seated in a crowded booth (with at least one seating area)
without any cushioning. I would have objected and asked for a table ...but it was
late and we were hungry. It was not conducive for the 6 of us, nor the waiter.
On the positive side , the food was generally wonderful, as we expected. A little slow,
but not bad considering the numbers dining.
Note : This was not the first time for us individually and with other groups to
dine with Char.
I was so disappointed. I had pick Chars for my birthday celebration. The service was horrible and the food wasn’t much better. We had problems getting our drinks and finally had to call over another waiter, the food was the same. I felt I had 2 slices of white bread with and egg on top. Forget about having any meat.
I have been to Chars for dinner before and totally loved it, but I won’t be coming back for brunch ever again.
We chose Char to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Our server was very attentive, the atmosphere was just right for a special occasion and the food was delicious. I had a filet with scallop and my husband had the fish special. Both were good choices. I used to come to Char for lunch a lot when I worked nearby. I wish I lived closer. We'd go more often.
Took my 2 granddaughters age 9 and 6 before New Stage Beauty and the Beast for a Christmas brunch celebration. Waitress so nice to the children, made a note of 9 year old with significant allergies (seafood and eggs) jazz band adds a special French Quarter feel. The children loved the chicken and waffles. 5 🌟 recommendation
Had an early Sunday brunch there for the first time wityh my wife and her mother. We shared spinach crisp (meatless) appetizer which was FABLOUS and gumbo which was just average. Both women had the Southern Style “Benny” which was kind of a huge plate of food but they liked it quite well even if they did not eat it all. I had the Crawfish, Lump Crab and Andouille Sausage Creole Sauté which sounds better than it was. The protein was swimming in a cream and flour based béchamel style sauce that had been liberably dosed with cayene pepper. On the edge of too hot for me and I like hot stuff a lot. We all shared a piece of caramel cheesecake which was superb. The baugettes were as unhealthy as always ... piping hot and delicious.
I ordered the red fish. Though it was edible,it wasn’t that good and the value of the meal wasn’t worth it. The sauce for the fish was okay... basically, the taste didn’t match the value I paid and I didn’t expect it to be that way. Did you change your chef? I dine at Char often and the food seems a bit off from what I’m used to. However, the service and the desserts are still great...
Normally we come here once a month just to get out and have a good steak. We have come here since they expanded and food was great. We always look forward to the surf and turf special with the shrimp, filet and crab cake. This time my wife and I both had to send our steaks back for being over cooked. This is not a problem and I understand things can happen; however, When our steaks were cooked for the second time, the meat seemed like a lower grade than a normal char steak and had absolutely no flavor. It’s like they just picked them out and put them on the grill. This is not the normal Char we have known for years. They were topped with crab meat which was good but we really missed the crab cakes on the side. It will be a while before we return to your restaurant. We might have to find a different steak in town. However, on a positive note, Hannah was our waitress and she did a fantastic job. She was very attentive to our needs and wanted to make our meal was absolutely perfect. I just wish our food could have had the same quality as our server.
I usual come on Sundays. The fried chicken is almost always great. However, for last couple visits the chicken was not all that great. One visit, I had to send it back because it was too greasy. The second piece was great. The most recent time the chicken wing was a bit tough and not crispy. I didn’t send it back because I had enough to eat.
