    We had a very early dinner reservation at 4:30 in order to go to an event, so it was basically empty when we got there. A few tables were seated around the same time and there were 2-3 servers. We didn’t get greeted or given water by anyone for at least 10 minutes. Kind of strange since there was barely anyone there and clearly enough waitstaff. Plus all of the other tables around us were taken care of as we still sat there waiting. The food was very good; I was concerned it wouldn’t be up to standards since we have eaten at authentic Korean restaurants. Bur taste and presentation of everything we got was really great. The service ended up be being better…our server was very nice but just not very quick. I would definitely come here again.

    Our server gave helpful recommendations that assisted in our selections. I highly recommend their dumplings! My entry was their beef dish and it was savory and delectable. Save room for their dessert. I recommend for an after work gathering, Girls dinner or date nite.

    Loved the dumplings as always, and the cauliflower was tasty. The tofu stew resembled a tofu soup more than stew. The quantity of squid in it was generous. It was quite spicy and required the rice mix provided. Our guest liked the flavor of the pork belly but thought the pieces had a bit too much fat. The Federalist cab and Sokol Blossom rose were great

    Had a 5pm reservation and restaurant was starting to fill up. Sue our server was fantastic, even though she was the only server with 8 other tables. The food was superb! We had the Dumplings and Cauliflower with Shishito Peppers for appetizers. The Golbi and Braised Pork Belly as our entrees, both were melt in your mouth delicious. We were stuffed and got the Croissels to go for dessert. If you're in the Historic Third Ward, we highly recommend checking this place out!

    Fantastic restaurant. Could use better signage though, Especially for folks entering the 222 building and trying to find the unlabeled room 100. Hostess said this happened a lot. Allow extra time to get there, but you'll be in for a good experience.

    Came for dinner after a show at The Stackner last weekend and Char'd was the perfect choice for us. The menu is very interesting which made it fun, but not too out there if you are a "picky" eater (there were 2 in our group of 4.) We started with two great shareable appetizers (we had the Dumplings and Shishito Cauliflower - both fantastic) and each of us had a different entree: Beef Bulgogi, Galgi, Mushroom and Stir Fry Glass Noodles w/Beef. All agreed the food here was unique and delicious, and well prepared...everyone loved their meals. We also shared the Yuzu Soju - unique taste and we all enjoyed it. Highly recommend!

    We were very disappointed in the food selection. We were looking forward to an authentic Korean experience as we lived in South Korea for some time. It is not a gluten friendly menu or if you have seafood allergies, please stay away as there is cross contamination. The prices are too expensive for the portions. Parking is a problem as it is on the street. Additionally I do not believe we would have been seated if we didn’t have a reservation as when greeted by the hostess I was informed I needed a reservation and gladly told her I had one and her attitude suddenly changed to welcoming and friendly.

    This used to be a really nice restaurant. Totally empty and dead. We had 8:00pm dinner reservations for a large group. As soon as we sat down, we were promptly informed the kitchen closes at 9:00 and the bar closed at 9:30. The speed at which we were hustled out was just bizarre. Why take a reservation for 8:00pm and just inform people that they need to pretty much get out quickly. Weird.

    Char'd was a new dining option for us. The menu was small but adequate choices for both vegetarians and meat lovers. The flavors were wonderful and presentation appealing. As with many restaurants these days, they were out of a number of items. We would definitely go back and would have a difficult choice of having the same entrees or trying something new. Would keep on the "go to" list of dining options in Milwaukee.

    Char'd is my favorite Korean food joint to go to. Food is delicious (but pricier). The interior of the place is modern/updated. The dining area is dimly lit for that seclusive/intimate feel environment. Would def recommend for date nights, bar area is nice as well if you want to grab a drink and catch up with folks there if tables in the dining area are booked (they typically are).

    Hands down the best restaurant we’ve eaten at in a while! Great cocktails and food. We literally had all the apps (only 2 didn’t make the list) and they were finger licking’ scrumptious! I’d insert some pictures of the food but want quick enough to capture their arrival.
