    We had a good experience, but not “great”. Service was fine but could have been more attentive/timely. Food, such as apps and drinks, were nice. However, the steaks themselves were over cooked. Ordered Medium rare - was more medium. As well as one guest ordered rare- and it was a warm center rather than cool. However, after the point of being there for 1.5 hours already… we were too hungry to send back to the kitchen. I would rate 7/10, however if given the chance, I would enjoy a new experience and maybe the rating would shift.

    We celebrated graduation at Char and it was fantastic. Meaghan is a great waitress. The whole experience ranks as top 3 ever ( commander’s palace; tavern on the green). The s’mores brûlée is other-worldly.

    Once again we had a wonderful experience at Char's Steakhouse. Began with Happy Hour with Calamari, Oysters, and Stuffed Dates.....tried the Jungle Boogie which I would enjoy again! Our friends ordered the Bone-in Filet and remarked they were one of their best steaks ever. My husband had the Strip, cooked exactly the way he enjoys it, and finished every bite. The Salmon Oscar was something new for me, and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the Chilean SeaBass that I tend to get. Disappointed that the Smoked French Fries were no longer on the menu, and hope someday they make a return! But we will keep coming back to check while we enjoy all the other delicious menu items.

    The service needs to be better. We were a party of 7 with one server and she had no help. Your servers all need to help each other. I challenge management to spend more time on the floor.

    We had a fabulous dinner! We had the bacon wrapped dates and calamari, the Char salad, a Kobe steak, oysters and a baked potato. The only thing I'd like to add to it would be a more extensive spirit's list. Especially some more American whiskey.

    The food was absolutely incredible, no complaints there. Our server was sub-par. Constantly forgetting us, even after making the comment that it was slow and we would have her undivided attention. The support staff made up for her shortcomings, they were picking up her slack. The final straw was when we asked if she could get the water on the table from condensation that was pooling up, and there was a lot; our server threw two towels at us, and said here ya go and left. I would come back for the food, but if we got the same server I would probably pass.

    Way overpriced for food quality. Food was cold or room temp when brought out. Got stuck eating in the lounge when we had a reservation. Seated late, service was slow. 2.5 hour dinner which we rushed to leave at the end. The only good thing was they comped us 75$ for the bad experience. Was expecting way better for the cost of this meal

    It was my niece’s spring formal and it was perfect! The food was amazing; steak cooked to perfection and chicken Bijan was better than ever! Everything came out hot and fresh! Kaitlyn, their server, went above and beyond to make those young ladies feel like princesses! There was a miscommunication on my part and I’m so grateful for the hostess Megan and Lily for seamlessly adjusting the table so quickly! Thank you so very much to all of the staff for making those ladies night so special!

    We had a lovely dinner. Service was excellent. The food was good. However overpriced. Also, I made these reservations 2 months ago for Valentine's Day. Never once did Open Table or Char inform me that it was a limited menu with a required $95 per person. By the time we sat down to our table there was really nothing we could do about that. I'm not sure I would have chosen this restaurant had I known.

    Be sure to ask for a more private seating arrangement. I did not, and my wife and I were sat one foot away from two strangers. All intimacy was gone, and the experience was shot.

    Not overly impressed. Our server had a table of 6 so we were overlooked several times and had to request items like salt and pepper and straws multiple times. The steak was good but over priced. The twice baked potato was over cooked and dry we suspect it was leftover from another night. Everyone raves about the mushroom risotto it had so much parmesan cheese in it it was almost unedible. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 drinks, 1 entree and a side dish, the bill was over a $130 won't be going back anytime soon. Very disappointed.

    This place was amazing! This is the first place I've been where there was not any salt and pepper on the table and I didn't need any . The staff is amazing and the food was even better. If anyone finds theirselves here let me recommend the cheddar jalapeno potatoes as a side dish with the Delmonico ribeye.
