I was surprised by my experience at Char. It was lunch time and a little busy. Service was slow and they did not take our order for 20 minutes after we sat. They were out of tea (very strange). But the biggest disappointment was the food. I had a three vegetable plate. Each item was way over seasoned. I will not go back for lunch.

This is a nice place to go but my experience this time was only ok due to my waffle being cold ( barely warm). I didn't complain bc my chicken tenders were hot, however I didn't eat my waffle and was a little disappointed.

I love Char. The series and the atmosphere is always nice. I enjoy sitting at the piano bar listening to the piano player in Wednesday nights. And, the spinach crisp is such a tasty appetizer. I get it with shrimp sometimes. I usually follow everything up with a warm slice of pecan pie...perfection.

It was our server’s first night on the floor alone.
He did a good job, was very attentive, checked on us often without being intrusive. Food was good, the filet Char was not as flavorful as I had hoped. Gumbo and pecan pie were excellent. We were celebrating my son’s birthday, the hostesses acknowledged it, but our waiter did not. He’s 26 and our celebration was delayed a week past his actual birthday, so he’ll be ok. However, since we were celebrating our first family birthday out since January 2020, it would have been nice if he had acknowledged it.

Thank you for celebrating your son's birthday at Char! We sincerely appreciate you choosing to spend such a special occasion with us. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your overall meal -- I always recommend saving room for pecan pie! I am sorry, however, to hear that we failed to acknowledge your son's special day more. We are incredibly thankful when guests celebrate special occasions with us, and do not take for granted when families and friends choose us as a dining destination.
