Food is always excellent and the service was great by Sherry and the chef went out of his way to help us with a gluten-free dish really appreciative one of our favorite restaurants in Memphis. Highly recommend!

Char and it’s staff were very hospitable. We were running late due to traffic and other unforeseen circumstances and they still were able to accommodate us. The service staff was perfect! Very knowledgeable and very prompt. We had crab claws as an appetizer and we each ordered the 8oz filet. The food was delicious and hands down the best steak I have ever eaten. We cannot wait to return.

Noise level was perfect for a group of 5 ladies. We had no issues chatting with everyone. Fried green tomatoes and crab cakes were phenomenal! I did not recognize a lot of the wines listed but the reds we picked were all pretty good! Most of us got some sort of seafood and we had nothing to complain about. It was all delicious! They were also very fast with the entree. We will come back for sure!

As usual, the food was outstanding.
The only reason I deducted a star for service was due to an approximate 15 minute wait for desert to be brought to the table after ordering.
Noise level is normally high, due to close proximity to a large group table next to us. Not the first time we have experienced this.
Overall, a very nice dining experience.

We went to brunch and actually ordered some of our favorite items.

The crab cake was literally burned on one side and gooey on the other. Someone in a kitchen coat delivered it and acted like that was normal. We did not eat it and the waitress took the plate away but did not say anything.

My daughter had the quiche and it was cold, hard and dry. Again, she did not eat it.

I had the broiled fish with greens and broccolini. The fish was ok, at least it was fresh and hot.

The greens were good, but the broccolini was loaded with garlic and was not eatable.

We passed on dessert. Definitely not going for brunch again, and it will be a while before I
Go back.

We spent $80 and left hungry😳

I had mentioned in my reservation that it was my wife's birthday and both Ruth Chris and Folks Folly served her a slice of cake for past birthday. I was very disappointed that Char did not. I wonder why they even asked.

The food was exceptional although the prices compared to more notable steak houses in the area, that are better for the money. Our waiter was not very attentive but acceptable. There were signs that appropriate attire is required, although from what I saw that was the equivalent of saying no shoes no service.
I think when you are paying more than $100 for a meal for two the atmosphere should reflect that. The upscale feel went away quickly with other guest in shorts and flip flops or looking as though they had just left a gym.
While the food was good I would pick another place if you are looking for a fine dining experience.

Hi John, thank you for recent visit to Char! It's a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your overall visit, although I apologize if our dress code stipulations were unclear in any way. We do request guests adhere to "business casual attire" while dining with us, namely no hats in the dining room. I'll be sure to pass along your feedback to our management team on how we convey this to our guests moving forward. Thank you again for the review; we sincerely hope you'll return again soon!

The mimosa’s were ok, at best. Just looking at the various tables, there were pretty drastic differences in color of the mimosas, so they obviously weren’t consistent. Depending on luck of the draw, they might have been better.

Food and service were overall very good.

CHAR Restaurant
Responded on July 8, 2019

Hello, thank you for your recent visit to Char! It's a pleasure to learn that you enjoyed your overall visit. It sounds like you joined us for brunch this past weekend when our featured mimosa was a Blood Orange Mimosa; this specialty cocktail was in fact darker in color than our regular mimosas, which may have led to the color inconsistencies observed during your visit. We feature a specialty mimosa every weekend-- we hope you'll return on a weekend soon to try one!

Wonderful. The food is always fabulous. I especially love the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. They are always perfect. The cornbread dusted redfish is my fav. Regardless, if it’s lunch or dinner, I choose. But to be fair, everything I’ve ever tried has been really good. One can’t go wrong here.

Everything from service to taste was great. The only thing I would suggest is turning the lighting up a notch. If you don't have a table by the window or the center of the floor, it's a little tricky trying to see the menu and most of all, the food. It seems everyone that had a booth on the wall were pulling the cellphone lights out to read the menus. FOOD WAS AWESOME THOUGH!!!
