    Kate was our waitress and she was absolutely amazing! The food was cooked perfectly and it tasted amazing. We had ribeye steaks, oysters, and sides. Every dish was perfect! The entire experience was positive and I highly recommend you try this place at least once.

    We loved the menu and the overall atmosphere. Food was delicious. However, we had an issue with our server. He was very inattentive and left us longer than we liked. We had to ask another waiter to find him twice when we needed something. Other than that, the food and dining experience was good.

    The steak was perfect! Our waiter was very attentive and kind throughout our service. He also had great recommendations. The attire was a bit more mix matched than we had hoped for. As a fine dining restaurant, we would assume the attire and overall atmosphere would follow. Overall a great place.

    Great Place, Took my parents on my dad's birthday. Everything was amazing! Great staff! One complaint would be that the lobster tail was a little on the cold side when served. Cake they served was 8 layer Cake slice. Two people could share that huge slice! Great experience.

    The food was excellent. The pricing seems to match that of larger cities, but the service was great. I got the delmonico steak, which was good, but not great. It lacked a certain depth of flavor that I expect from a steakhouse at this price point. The lobster and alaskan king crab had excellent flavor, however they are certainly very overpriced unless they are literally flown in daily, which I do not think to be the case. For springfield, missouri, this is an excellent establishment. However, I do think the pricing is a bit above what it should be, hence my knock to the value rating.

    Christmas eve dinner. Started with Lobster bisque and French onion soup. Excellent Sea Bass and filet. Table bread had a couple of frozen pieces and Lyonaise potatoes too crisp and over done. It was a busy night for them so will definitely try again.

    Wait staff was not attentive. Had to wait on water glass being refilled. Waiter took too much time between ordering drinks, appetizers, main course and desert. Took 2 and a half hours to eat and you were not busy. Also waiter not professional in supplying replacement or extra silverware, clearing used dishes, etc.

    Waygu steak was best steak ever! Service was timely except for wait on our reservation ( we were sitting right in front of desk waiting, we were 10 minutes early) and they forgot about us somehow and we were seated approx 10 minutes late. It was a pleasant evening otherwise. Layered chocolate cake was fantastic!

    We come to Char about once a month and for every special occasion. You can’t beat the food here in Springfield. I moved here from Dallas, so I am very picky about restaurants. I think Char could actually compete with some pretty solid restaurants in Dallas.

    The experience was amazing an food was fantastic as usual! But I'll be honest, dessert wasn't as good as previous visits. We sat for awhile with empty cups. And the 2 seat tables just aren't big enough for multiple plates, cups and decor. Still best steaks in town!

    First time visitor. We had a very nice evening. Service was excellent and it was a very pleasant atmosphere. Food was great but the delmonico steaks were just ok. They were cooked to our liking but they were a little tough. We’ll definitely go back but try a different steak.

    The hostess being the first person seen needs to fix her face. Management was very accommadating with reseating. The wait staff was on point. Never went without. Serving sizes were very balanced for what you order. The whole table was a fan of the ahi tuna.

    Ordered the KC and Filet, with both being fantastic...a nice char on the outside and perfectly cooked inside. The vegetables were very good, and the drinks were on target (Mai Tai and wine). This place makes for a great evening whether with friends or your loved one.

    I had a featured item. 14 oz bone in filet. It melted in my mouth and I could cut it with a fork. The flavor was phenomenal. It was $69 which is more than I would normally pay for a steak but we had a gift card so I went for it. It was worth every penny. Best steak I’ve had in a long time. Potato purée with melted cheese, bacon and jalapeño was very good. Not spicy. The hubby had a delmonico. It was a good steak as well. Great experience and our server was great.

    I had the tortilla soup and steak sandwich which were both excellent. My wife had the del monaco-medium rare- however it came out medium to medium well, a bit disappointing. But they quickly prepared a replacement and comped the steak, gave us an oustansing free cobbler dessert and a bonus free cocktail. They went over the top to make up for the steak and we greatly appreciated it, the level of care from the staff ensured that we will be back
