My wife and I arrived on time 8:30pm according to our reservation, and a waiter took our orders immediately after we sat on our table, acouples of minutes later we served the appetizer, and since then we have been for an hour 9:30pm we didn't get our food, and we asked the waiter twice time why the delay for? and he just keeps saying is coming without any explanation for the delay, then we realized that they ignore us and then we decided to leave. Therefore I don't recommend this restaurant for any one especially people of color, I can see and smell the discrimination against people of color and I wish I could be wrong. I will never go back again.

The restaurant did a good job of having guests separated and wore their masks. The fried green tomatoes were delicious, and my salmon with broccolini and zucchini was perfectly cooked.
The other day I had caesar salad and the crab cake was perfect!
It was a very relaxing evening, thank you!

Redfish was dry and overcooked. Crab cake was all crab but very bland. Cowboy ribeye was very fatty. Server was a very attentive and polite young man

Food was generally OK. The Shrimp bisque and the pecan pie were the highlights. Steak frites was just OK, and the fries were covered with enough sale to cure a country ham. The scallops were very good, but the temperature of the food was just warm when it arrived at the table. Our waitperson was fantastic and very attentive. If you want to go to Char, definitely go after dark so that the restaurant would have some appeal. In the daylight it is OK, but the lights being on after dusk would be much better.

We have been doing take out from Char for the past year and it is great. Last night we actually ate there and it was wonderful. We started with the crab claws - did half sautéed and half fried...both were great. I had steak and fries...the truffle fries are amazing. Husband had the prime rib which was cooked perfectly. We took half home so we could indulge in dessert brownie and ice cream. It was huge too so we have dessert to go with our leftovers today. The service was great and the ambiance is wonderful. Will definitely return.

Dining at Char is always a pleasant experience. The food and service are consistently outstanding.
My husband and I especially enjoy the daily specials, available until 4PM They are a great value and we often come for a late lunch around 2-3PM to enjoy a meal.
I especially enjoy their cornmeal dusted redfish and the catfish on Friday is my husband's favorite!

My Birthday Brunch was truly amazing. Hostess super polite and our server Nick was so pleasant and efficient!! He was alway right there but never overbearing! We had a variety of food selections. We started with Fried Green Tomatoes and they reminded me of my grandmother’s. I was sold from that point on! Thanks for a wonderful Birthday Brunch!

Had a nice light dinner as planned - I got the Tuna Nicoise Salad, which was excellent with a beautiful piece of seared tuna sliced on top. My wife got the gumbo and a beautiful house salad with blue cheese that was so nice she couldn't eat it all and we took part of it home for lunch.

Excellent food & service. Restaurant was quiet even though there were 2 large birthday parties sharing the dining room. I wouldn't say romantic, but great place for families, friends, or food lover date.
