Our first visit to Char Steakhouse was definitely memorable, in every positive sense possible. The ambience was cozy, classy, absolutely delicious! Believe it or not, we did not try the steak! But plan to visit again in the future.

Absolutely fantastic! Steaks were beautifully cooked. The lobster mac and cheese was delicious. Everyone must order the brussel sprout leaves.

The service was excellent! Never had to ask for anything. Our server just seemed to know what we needed.

The decor is glamorous.

Once again, had a fantastic experience! Chef Jeremy really takes care of my crazy whims on a plant-based, vegan diet. Great hospitality, superb food, outstanding drinks! Rarely eat anywhere else when I travel in Springfield.

As always, Char staff, from the first opened (for us) door, to the hostess, to our waiter (Skylr, who was very attentive and personable, wife wife thought he was cute as well....sigh, LOL), to the other serving staff who would stop by to replenish waters, wine, bringing bread etc., everybody start to finish was fantastic, including opening the door on our way out as they always do. The place was clean and tidy as always, very aesthetically pleasing, everything looked very clean. The food was on point, as always. They never disappoint. Great job, Char!

Great steak, of course, but appetizers were varied and delicious. Choose sea bass over salmon - it's fantastic! I am not an oyster fan but my friends loved it! Outside dining options but beautiful interior inside. S'more Brulet is a must for desert.

This was our first dinner out post COVID. Char was following all the required CDC rules and doing it with class and made it feel very normal.

Our waiter greeted us with a sample of Rose’, explained the specials. Gave us our time and was very pleasant.

I started with a blackberry Hendricks cocktail with fresh cucumber. Fabulous! My husband had their special CHar Old Fashioned. Great!

Had the French onion soup and the wedge salad as starters. Both phenomenal! Fresh popovers arrived with salted butter.

My entree was the 8oz Filet special from Double R Ranch (sorry if the ranch name is incorrect, it was on their limited special card). It came with roasted Brussels and duck fat fried potatoes. My husband ordered the Waygu strip steak. Both steaks were the best we’ve ever had. I’ve had Waygu filet before and even though this wasn’t, it had great flavor and tenderness that I could have been fooled.

We then somehow made room for dessert. S’more creme brûlée. O M G. It was great!!!!!!!!!

We will visit again. Our service was fantastic. I wish I could remember my servers name to give him credit. I asked him how long he’s been there and he told us he started in the kitchen, worked into catering and serving. Nice guy. I hope he appreciated the tip, he earned it.

Go eat there!

Appetizers, drinks, salad and steaks were amazing, but the dessert myself (strawberry shortcake) and one of my friends (Salted carmel ice cream and raspberry puree) had were not good. My sister enjoyed her chocolate chip cheesecake. The waiter didn't seem that interested but the support waitstaff were awesome. Overall it was a good experience will return, just won't order dessert. The wonderful service I've had previously probably colored my opinion this time.

Service was amazing, from the moment you enter the restaurant, until you finish your meal. Food was excellent, but be prepared, expensive. The only negative comment I could express is the Créme Brûlée was not good at all. Would definitely go again for another special occasion.

Absolutely wonderful! Steaks have always been so good, I was hesitant to try something else, but the sea bass was something I can't wait to try again. Had calamari and smoked fries with drinks before moving to our table. Next time will have to arrive earlier for our reservation so we can spend more time in the lounge.....folks were so welcoming.

We took our two children, they are well behaved and blended right in with the adult crowd. The service was excellent and the chef brought out the ice cream sundae tower after dinner. Amazing experience for us and super awesome that our children were able to have a mature, fine dining experience without feeling out of place. We'll definitely be back again... and again!!
