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!
Overall an enjoyable, but average dining experience. The food was flavorful, the atmosphere was appropriate and open, the service was ok.
Food was excellent. We had a nice time. Would highly recommend
Crab claws were amazing!!
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.
Awesome food and service!
The service and food is consistently good at Char! Hands down, our favorite place to meet friends.
One of the absolutely best meals I’ve ever had! The prime rib was mouthwatering as was the loaded baked potato! If I ever visit Nashville again I will definitely come back there to eat! Mary B
It was a birthday event. Everyone was very professional and friendly.
I took my mother to her favorite restaurant, Char, for dinner on her birthday. As usual, every aspect of our experience was great.
Husband and I try a new restaurant in the Nashville- Franklin area every other week.
It was my wife’s birthday. The food, atmosphere, and service were impeccable
We took visiting friends for dinner on Saturday evening. Everything was delicious . We will be coming back soon with out of town guests.
Great food and service!
Excellent staff and creative menu.
Quiet and pleasant experience.
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.
Great evening of food and fun at Char. Service was exceptional.
Our waiter Zach was amazing. He was very attentive. The food was delicious.
Char is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants. Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. We do miss the piano player from pre-covid days, though
We had just finished enjoying our delicious delicious meal, when our daughter and son-in-law received the call that they had gotten the home they had bid on earlier in the day. Our service was wonderful and the warmth of their congratulations was so appreciated. Looking forward to returning to Char in June 2020 when they make their move to Nashville! Memorable experience made at Char!
Good place for lunch. Quiet, service was good, food was excellent.
Amazing food and service. Great location!
We had an amazing experience here! Our server went above and beyond and the manager on duty made sure our son felt special on his birthday. This was the best dining experience we have had in a while! We will definitely be back.
Great service, must have the pecan pie for dessert
The steak was a bit fatty...
Very nice, high quality dining experience. They know how to make a good Manhattan
Lovely Easter brunch. Staff went out of their ways to accommodate us.
Average to mediocre at best for a Friday night family get together
Hi Barbara, thank you for your recent visit to Char. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't blown away by your experience. Mediocrity is far from what we strive to provide our guests, so it is disappointing to learn that we fell short of providing excellent food and/or service. If there is any information you could send us to help us determine what we could have done better, we're all ears! We take our guests' feedback seriously in an effort to constantly improve upon the dining experience.
Our waiter was excellent and so was the food. I will definitely be back. And those fried pork skins and pecan pie! Yes!!!! Salad was so fresh and good.
Crab cakes and fried green tomatoes were excellent. As was the Voodoo Lady drink.
I truly wanted to like Char, as I love all 4 Top restaurants, but I was underwhelmed. The service was great as were the cocktails. The food however needed some help. Unfortunate because some of these things are rookie mistakes which you shouldn’t see at this price point.
Mussel appetizer – very flavorful but a lot of the mussels were broken. Really should not be serving broken mussels as it means they may not be fresh. Fortunately, no stinky mussels were had but the bits of broken shell in my mouth from the broth was troubling.
I had the salmon. I’ve been on WW for 3 months now and asked if they could grill my salmon instead of pan sauté. They easily accommodated and it was delicious. They may need to add grilled salmon as a regular item because it was so good. Came with roasted veggies and they were good as well.
My dining partner got the prime rib which comes with a loaded baked potato. His food came out below temp – the potato was cold and we sent it back. It was returned hot but with no sour cream. We had to ask for sour crem and it was so cold – like almost out of the freezer cold – which wasn’t great. The prime rib was flavorful but could have been a little warmer. He also got a side of spinach gratin. It was good, nothing spectacular, but looked like it had plain Colby/jack blend just melted on the top. It too, was not very warm. I feel like they had already plated his food and then fired mine while his sat and got cold.
Now to desserts - He got the butter cake thing which was really good - I got the pecan pie. Keep in mind, this was the first dessert I’ve had in 3 months so I ate it all however I wasn’t impressed. This was not a southern pecan pie. It was in a shallow tart shell that didn’t taste as if it was completely cooked and had a strange texture. The filling was looser than a traditional pecan pie, still good, but just not what I was expecting. There’s no need to try and reinvent the pecan pie – its perfect in it’s most simple state.
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 mussels 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 treatment for a celebration of my mother’s 83rd birthday
Not the restaurants fault but a whiny, crying young child sitting by us. The room doesn’t allow for great acoustics.
We went as first time guests. It was great ambiance and food was amazing. There was a large party that were a little loud but after they left everything was at a great noise level. Cost was great as well. It is ranked in top 5 restaurants in Nashville for us!
Everything was very nice from the reservation, to the dining and in between and up to time when we got our tickets! I first made reservations for 2 for 5pm and then 2 other friends wanted to come...went online and changed from 2 to 4 as I could get no answer on the phone to chg it that way. Not a problem, but when I chg the party total online, it chg the time from 5 to 4:45 which was not a major difference, but due to the weather we were having that day, everyone was not going to make it until close to 5 or a lil after! Therefore I got a follow up call from a nice lady( Srry forgot her name) confirming if we were still coming and she explained the policy of “15 min table hold” and then I let her kno what happened online and that we were almost there and she was able to chg somethings around and let us keep the original reservation time of 5pm! Finally we’re all together and here comes Heidi to help us have a very awesome dining experience! She was very nice, attentive and detailed...she remembered all of our names...she is truly amazing! Be back soon! 🙂
