Food was ok! The steak was cooked perfectly but tasted bland. Cocktails were misleading. It's advertised as "Vodka" but taste more like champagne (one of the ingredients). Our waiter provides excellent customer service. The presentation of the food looked great but not worth the price as far as 16oz steak with loaded potatoes almost $40. On a scale of 1 -10 with 10 being excellent, I give our experience at Char a 6.

Our experience for my fiancé’s birthday was wonderful. Sherry was a very sweet and knowledgeable server, and super helpful with items on the menu. The food was impeccable and Sherry went above and beyond to make us feel special.

Covid had restricted to 25% occupancy so we made a reset using Open Table. We were seated right away and staff members were all very pleasant and outgoing. Food was excellent. My new favorite place for a steak. Filet was perfection.

Overall service was outstanding! Our server JD was phenomenal, knowledgeable, attentive, and beyond caring. I ordered the New Year’s entree to-go and specified NO SHRIMP due to my fiancé being allergic to shellfish... However, after checking the order and receipt which stated it, JD corrected the problem promptly. Now, when I took it home to my fiancé without informing him of the experience I had, he began to eat and then asked was shrimp in this container??? I felt horrible. My gut told me to specify NOT TO TAKE THE SHRIMP OUT but completely redo the entire order; but I didn’t want to be difficult but this could’ve caused him his life. That was my first and last time going!

Hi Ken, thank you for celebrating New Year's Day with us. We sincerely appreciate you choosing to spend the holiday at Char. I cannot apologize enough for our mix up regarding your to-go dish. We take food allergies very seriously and understand the importance of executing these types of requests carefully. Obviously, we failed to do so, and I regret how this affected an otherwise lovely evening. While I am thankful there were no further repercussions, we should have proceeded more cautiously.

We had a standing reservation for a little over a week. Then I was emailed to confirm our dining time. However, we were informed in transit to the restaurant that they close at our reservation time. We got there and felt rushed with a limited menu for Christmas Eve 2020. As of now, I would not recommend Char.

Great birthday lunch! The steak was amazing and cooked perfectly! Great Bloody Mary as well! The bar area is more relaxed and fun for brunch and lunch where as the back room I would reserve for a fancy dinner! The bar did have the sports on which was great for my friends as it made the experience very fun! Great service!! The bar staff on Sunday was amazing, Sunday is a great day to go if you want personalized service! Also side tip: the mashed potato’s include the outer skin mixed in which I like but some of my dinner mates did not so just be mindful of that! But highly suggest the carmalized Mac and cheese!!
