    Paper plane was a great cocktail. Caesar and wedge salads were better than average. We had the filet and ribeye. Ribeye was cooked well except under salted and filet was good but not seared as expected. Crab cake was exceptional. Overall a good meal but not 5 star

    Great food and service, hostess was very kind when I asked to switch to a different table. Make reservations though and don't be late; some ladies walked in while I was waiting to be seated and their table had been given away since they didn't call to let the staff know they were running late. Live piano music in the bar could be heard throughout the dining room which was very nice.

    We had a graduation dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. The reservation team was excellent and helped us to schedule an appropriate time and table setting to fit our party. The food, as always was excellent and the service was great as expected. We always enjoy Char and it is one of our top 5 list of places to eat when we are in Nashville.

    This was one of my favorite restaurants in Nashville, but it's been average, at best, the last couple of visits. Yesterday my wife and I met for lunch. To start, the iced tea, which isn't listed on the menu, is now $3.50 a glass. Many places are now charging $2.50, but when does it get to the point of gouging? Then, they are out of both Equal and Splenda. I'm told it's because they can't get any. Truly not being a smart a**, but I told our server that Costco, Sam's club, and Gordon's Food Service have cases of them. And for that matter, so does Kroger, a block away. I ordered a burger, which I've done many times before. It was cooked correctly, but now the patty is significantly thinner than it was in the past. I think the price is still the same at $16, and I realize we have inflation spiraling out of control, but I would gladly pay an extra couple of dollars for the nice thick juicy burger I had been getting there for years. The fries were warm at best, not hot. My wife's salad was good, although when biting down on a piece of chicken, she bit into a bone. Not the worst meal I've ever had, but not even close to what it's been in the past.

    We had a great birthday meal last night. I ordered the seafood carbonara and it was so delicious, maybe even the best pasta dish I’ve ever had. My husband had the lamb chops and my daughter the redfish. Both were excellent. The cocktails were perfect and strong. Excellent service by all the staff.

    Suggest sticking with steak. Wedge salad was also good. Lamb chops not cooked to order.

    Char - NashvilleResponded on May 4, 2022

    Hi Lara, thank you for the review! It's a pleasure to hear that both the wedge salad and steak were enjoyed, but I'm sorry to learn that we failed to provide the correct temperature on your lamb chops. Please know that we're always happy to replace or take care of any dish you don't absolutely love, especially if it's not served perfectly the first time around. We're always open to hearing feedback from our guests on ways we can improve and appreciate you taking the time to provide your remarks so that we can address them appropriately. We look forward to seeing you back again soon!

    The food is always wonderful, as is the wait staff. The live band was also extra-sweet, playing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow' when they saw we had our 5-year-old daughter with us. Char is a much-needed staple in Green Hills, whether for Sunday brunch, a working lunch or a special occasion dinner.
