Four of us celebrated a birthday. We all had one of our favorite dishes, which was redfish. It was the best ever including in New Orleans. Char took care of one guest who was allergic to shellfish and left the crab and crawfish off his serving. Wait staff was efficient. Great time.

Where are the duck eggs? You do not offer them any longer. They were wonderful. The country ham was extremely salty and extremely tough. One of the dishes the egg white was not cooked. I knew better than sending it back, but I guess an overcooked egg is better than raw.

CHAR Restaurant
Responded on May 15, 2019

Hi Laurie, thank you for joining us for brunch. I'm sorry to hear that your meal fell short of expectations. We did remove the duck eggs from the menu, as the volume and demand became too high for our local farmers. They were indeed delicious, but unfortunately, became an item that was difficult to regularly source. As for your eggs, we would have happily replaced that for you! We are always happy to take care of anything that is not prepared properly or to our guests' liking.

Food and service were excellent! Ambience was a bit lacking in a pretty dark room so far away from the live piano music that we couldn't hear it. Prices were a bit steep, considering that you get a much better experience at Flight downtown for about the same price, but it is worth checking out if you have the money. The salmon was the best that I have ever had. Just request a table near the piano. :-)

Hi Aaron, thank you for your recent visit to Char. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the salmon, though I apologize that the atmosphere fell short of expectations.

Char delivered again on a great eating experience. My son turned 19 and wanted to go back to Char to get his own order of scallops after trying mine on the previous visit. My wife had the red fish and I had the grouper. My wife's red fish was the winner this evening. The grouper was a little on the small size. In fact, I didn't know grouper were about the same size and Tilapia. I guess it was a very thinly sliced filet.

The service was wonderful. Staff are friendly and approachable. The restaurant has appointments that make the noise level very dampened which is appealing to me. Great experience. We will be going back.

I generally love Char and we always enjoy eating in the bar. Have no idea if waitress was new? Hadn’t seen her before. Food was not prepared like I ordered and side was forgotten. Also, one of the 8 of us did not get his food w/ our dinner b/c she didn’t put it in at all. Not saying we will not be back, we frequent Char often. Hoping it was just a 1st day for her or an unlucky bad experience? No it was not crowded and we were there by 7:30pm and earlier.
