Took my 93 year old grandmother here for dinner and she said it was the best food she’s had in a restaurant in a very long time. Jeremy was a great server ! Attentive but not over bearing. 10/10
Char always has great food and drink as well as service. Last night we had Tessa as a server and she was so personable and professional. This is one of my favorite Nashville places to go for dinner!
I recently visited Char with my family as a going away dinner for my son who was headed back to college. We were a party of six and we were seated promptly after arriving at our reservation time. The restaurant is in a upscale area of Nashville with a convenient parking garage underneath the street behind the business complex. There are a couple of other restaurants in the complex with Char being the most upscale. However, the clientale was most casual with guests wearing everyting from flip flops and shorts to evening gowns so it's not like some of the finer restaurants in the area.
Our party ordered steak, shrimp, crab cakes, and salmon. The steaks were very good although pricey for a casual restaurant. The salmon, chicken, and shrimp dishes were all good, although very spicy. The crab cakes were the biggest dissapointment based upon all of the positive reviews. You do get a lot of crab meat, but there is no breading of any form to give the crab cake more flavor. Also, both individuals that ordered crab cakes reported having a lot of shells mixed in with the crab.
Overall, I would recommend Char for a casual/upscale dinner, but I would stay away from the crab cakes and be aware that many of the dishes are spicy.
Everything was excellent. The only potential complaint was dress code compliance and attire of guests in general. Something difficult to control in this day and age, so I don't really hold this against them.
One dish was ice cold. All sides came out cold. Cold mashed potatoes, cold Mac and cheese, cold fries. Service at the bar surly. Why is Char so hit and miss? Sometime SO great, then flat. It’s about 75/25. Not bad,but for the price it should be great 95% of the time.
Great service and always great food
Visiting with dear friends in town for a wedding and we were suggested dining at Char, since it was near our hotel. My husband and the other gentleman both got the scallops and enjoyed them very much. My girlfriend raved over the prime rib cooked perfectly. I got a Caesar Salad and added Grilled Chicken with dressing on the side and it was delicious! Wine was reasonably priced and we all enjoyed the meal. Would return again when visiting Nashville again!
When we went to leave the restaurant I was surprised at how many people were there, especially since it seemed quiet to me.
The food was delicious and the server was outstanding. I was with an out-of-town guest and the restaurant made a good impression.
I would give this 4.5 across the board.
Food was decent. Our service was not great the server barley cleared plates, made us box our own food and I saw a manager clearing glassware with their bare hands instead of using a tray. Silverware was not replaced throughout course gaps and we poured our own wine the whole time. For the $400 we spent I don’t know if the service can live up to the upscale atmosphere you’d expected when we arrived. All in all it was okay.
We were very impressed with Char. The food was amazing and they had a great top shelf bourbon selection. We will definitely go back whenever we are back in Nashville!
A steakhouse with good food but not needed every day. The crab claws are excellent
good food, but it feels very corporate in decore and feel. doesn't feel personal. but for a quick lunch not bad
Always have a good time
We went for a date night. I expected a high end dining experience but it’s got a much more casual ambiance than I expected expected at this price point.
Good food, good service, good experience all around.
The food is just sooooo good!!! There are no bad choices. Save room for the Pecan Butter Crunch dessert!
The food is AMAZING 🙌🏻
Every menu item is excellent. A crowd pleaser whenever we bring guests.
Great food and atmosphere!
I love the bbq shrimp!!! Only place in town that I will have it.
Service, Bar, Drinks and Ambiance very good. We just had apps but the cocktail shrimp definitely were not fresh and were hard but the pork skins were great. Always a little inconsistency here on food....off and on. Great place to go though for drinks, service and sometimes food.
Hi Jamey, thank you for your recent visit to Char! I am so sorry to hear that we fell short of providing you with a five-star experience, and regret that you left a little disappointed with your selections. Your feedback regarding the quality of shrimp you received is troubling, and we will be sure to follow up with our supplier as soon as possible to ensure we are always receiving the freshest product available.
Great brunch. Food and service top notch
Went for wife’s birthday and indicated in the reservation that it was her birthday and I requested something special for her birthday. It was not acknowledged even though I ordered mimosa’s and toasted her birthday. Some dishes OK others were not good and some food was cold even though we were the first brunch party of the day. They got my order wrong and had to re do it. Service was spotty and overall poor.
Won’t be going back.
I'm so sorry to hear about your recent experience at Char. We appreciate you choosing to celebrate your wife's birthday here and regret that we failed to provide you with a special meal. It sounds as though we dropped the ball on both service and food standards, both of which we take very seriously with our service and culinary teams.
Char is a "steakhouse" with plenty of other options on the menu. I had chosen the shrimp entree & my husband selected the salmon, but our waiter, Skyler, told us that the redfish was Char's most popular menu item & that he personally enjoyed the scallops, so we ordered those dinners instead. Both dishes were absolutely outstanding! We visit Nashville frequently, as I was born & raised here & come to see family. We will definitely return to Char in Green Hills!
The food and service was excellent.
Food was delicious! Our waiter was beyond nice and so caring!!
Had shrimp & grits, crab claws, sea bass, prime rib, and bone in ribeye. Everything was fantastic in flavor and texture. Service was great too.
The food was amazing! Everything tasted fresh and super flavorful. Only complaint was my boyfriends steak was not cooked to temp ordered, they did make it right.
Great ambiance and central location in Green Hills. Are waiter was wonderful and the food yummy… but two of our steaks were way off the way they were ordered. At this price point, you should be able to expect spot on with respect to steak temps. The manager snd waiter were super responsive; but it’s that whole awkward situation of 2 people having to wait approx 5 minutes for their entrees to be cooked properly but wanting everyone else to continue eating.
Thank you for your recent visit to Char! I am terribly sorry to hear that two of your entrees were not cooked to your liking and regret how this overshadowed the rest of your meal. We strive to serve all of our cuts of meat to the desired temperature per our guests' specifications; I sincerely apologize that we fell short on execution here.
Great all around! Food and service excellent!
Food is always delicious and plated beautifully.
The pan-seared salmon was delicious. Relaxing atmosphere.
Great dining experience. Service was great. Drinks were perfect. Food was outstanding. Will definitely be going back.
Great food, great service!
4 for brunch..all enjoyed from Crab Benedict to Chicago and Waffles to Redfish
Brunch was mediocre. We asked for extra grits because a dish was very spicy and got charged for a side. I had dinner here last year and thought it was just okay but gave the restaurant a second chance because the brunch menu looked good. I won’t make a third visit.
Waiter was very accommodating. We had 1 guest that wanted a couple substitutions it was done with no problem.
As always a great meal.
One of my go to spots. Everything was great as always
In a town of quality but extremely overpriced steakhouses, Char is the rare example of a high quality steakhouse with reasonable prices. I never thought a steakhouse would be my hangout but this one has quickly become that. Friendly, staff, clean, great wine selections, and wonderful food.
