Food was great but it was extremely disappointing to have to wait 45 minutes for our first course and then another 20 minutes for the main course and the reason for the long wait being the kitchen was prioritizing take out orders. Not acceptable.

We opted to try all the appetizers we could, and they did not disappoint. Super tasty, and a great way to try all the different flavors. Our server was lovely and made helpful recommendations.

If you ever visit this awesome restaurant please request for your waitress to be Simone! She is absolutely the best.

I HIGHLY recommend this place as a great date night or group outing.

All around 10/10.

Excellent food. Amazing experience. Service was really prompt for food (except dessert) but quite slow for drinks which was a little frustrating. Overall - great experience.

Love the food! We tried several small plates and shared a main dish. We thoroughly enjoyed them. Highly recommend the crispy chicken, the cauliflower, and the pancakes. Fabulous!
The servers were very welcoming and accommodating.

Truly one of the best restaurants in Milwaukee! Love that it’s small, intimate and quiet enough for great conversation. Food was INCREDIBLE. Perfect for a few quick appetizers or a full sit down meal. We will be back very soon, can’t wait to bring our friends.

Appetizer were good. Just a little disappointed on my main course I was looking for more authentic Korean veggies but given sautéed tomatoes zucchini n mushroom. I think I was expecting a little more traditional Korean platting.
Service was good but I will definitely will go back

Delicious food, gorgeous dark wood interior and quiet atmosphere. Only issues were our server was inattentive (not her fault, she had the whole floor to herself), and the windows overlooking the bar area we're quite dirty. However, these were minor considerations overall. Char'd is well worth a visit for the Bibimbap alone!

The food was impeccable. Every ingredient had its own distinct flavor, and you could tell each part of the dish was prepared very thoughtfully. Honestly, I don't even normally like brussel sprouts (really never been a fan, even when I've had them buttered or baconed or otherwise dressed up), but the brussel sprouts here were so perfectly and deliciously prepared, I inhaled them (and stole some of my husband's, too).

The staff was also really attentive, and gave us some helpful guidance about our menu selections when we couldn't pick.

Very quiet and zen like in Char'd. Nice wait staff but drinks were delivered after appetizers which was unusual...(not sure if bar was understaffed due to COVID).

Food was GREAT. Cauliflower was exceptional as were the fries. The KFC wings and dumplings were also fantastic.

Food was great quality, and the flavors were on point.

Will definitely come back.

Nice surprise. Char'd was excellent. Our first time here - we went for my wife's birthday. Wanted to try something new to us. The Korean food was amazing - we split 2 apetizers: The Shishito Cauliflower (amazing sauce and spices), Scallion Pancake (reminded me of mondu - a vegetable pancake) that is truly special. And then we split a Beef Bulgogi dish that was really fantastic too. We got a dessert due to my wife's birthday - a "coiffle" - a waffle with scoup of ice cream. Overall great. Good waiter, great booth - nice open atmosphere. We will go again.

Their cocktail menu was amazing. All of their apps and entree choices looked amazing. I highly recommend the shishito cauliflower and Char'd dumplings for apps. For entrees, I recommend the stir fry glass noodles. The beef bulgogi was delicious too, but a bit fatty, so if you don't like that texture or taste, I wouldn't recommend it. The service was excellent and the ambiance is really nice.

Char'd provides a relatively simple menu of traditional and fusion items. Our favorites are the seafood and scallion pancakes and for entrees the mushroom dish with the trumpet mushrooms was rather enjoyable. We also shared a soju cocktail between the two of us, and while I expected it to hit hard, it actually went down rather smooth.

We enjoyed an early dinner and cocktails this weekend, and couldn’t have had a better experience! Everyone working there was super welcoming and pleasant, and our server was attentive but not overbearing. Cocktails were well balanced, and our dinner choices (wings, shishito cauliflower, bulgogi, pork belly, bibimbap) were great! Super fresh and hot, delicious and beautifully plated. We’ll definitely be back.

Definitely a great twist to the traditional Korean food. However, I do wish the menu was bigger and had more traditional dishes. And for the price for the size of portions is a little much. I enjoyed the dishes, though. All were great.
