Food was original and very tasty- honestly I hope they clean up their service act because this was one of the worst service experiences I’ve had in a long time. Food was so good I’d give them another shot.

Loved the food, I am just not crazy about the seating. One booth runs along the wall, and there are tables and a chair on the other side. You're literally 1' away from a stranger... Our neighbor was watching tv on his phone and his partner had bags all over the place.

Then I spotted an old friend and wanted to say "hi," but I had to wedge myself in between. I would def give 5-stars if this was changed.

The food was good and reasonably priced (get the shrimp!). The restaurant was quite cold inside and the bathrooms were not cleaned or maintained. I enjoyed the meal and ambiance but probably will not return.

Great mix of traditional and fusion Korean food. The Pork Bugogi was very good and the dumpling appetizer was a highlight as well. I would have giving 5 stars to the overall score, but the service was lacking. Had to request water multiple times and the specific questions that I asked of our server( types of sauces, etc.) were met with puzzled ignorance.

The service was excellent and our waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The food however was very average and overpriced. I cannot honestly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Such a cool vibe! We usually prefer to sit in the bar, but it was too busy to get a seat! We happily ended up at the community table with Meredith as our server. She was personable and made superb recommendations...the wings truly are the award winning. We will be back!

We tried several plates during our visit: Char'd Dumplings, Shishito Cauliflower, Perilla Avocado, Grilled Sausage, and Leeky Chicken. All were outstanding, but the sauce in the Cauliflower dish was amazing! The dumplings were delicious, the sausage and chicken were perfect, and the avocado was creamy and delicious on the toasted baguettes! We also had hot tea, Honey Ginger, and two drinks, Dark Cherry Mojito was the best! Highly recommend a visit when in the area!

Dined here on Valentine's Day. We were seated right away. Our waitress was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable and was quick to provide any details for questions that we had. I ordered the Soju Sour, the taste was very good but the portion could have been better for the price. My partner ordered the Not Your Mom's Green tea and she enjoyed it very much. We opted to do a combination of shareable small plates instead of the entrees. We ordered 5: Edamame, Kimchi Disco Fries, Char'd Dumplings, Perilla Avocado and Tuna Tartare. I would highly recommend the edamame, dumplings and the tartare. All 3 had exceptional flavor. I heard awesome things about the disco fries and was very excited to try them. Nothing really to write home about. The avocado with bread was good but could be skipped for something a little more flavorful. We will definitely be back to try the other small plates we didn't get this time around. The atmosphere was perfect for the occasion.

The concept of the restaurant is good but there is room to improve. We received all of our appetizers well before our drinks arrived to our table and we ordered our drinks well before we ordered food. The kimchi fries were terrible. Basic store bought french fries, undercooked, with kimchi and sour cream on top. The bibimbop was the best dish. The rice was crispy and the veggies were perfectly cooked. We will try it again and hope for a better experience.

Food was incredible. We had a server at the bar named tori who was incredible and additionally we had a server named Alaina who served our table and they were both incredible. We had the KFC wings and edamame for an appetizer and they were both amazing, the KFC wings stood out just because they were incredible. The entrees were all amazing, we had the bulgogi and the short rips.

Never been here before, but loved it. Will definitely bring friends. Everything was fantabulous. Our special birthday dinner included: KFC Wings, Leeky Chicken, Shishito Cauliflower, Beef Bulgogi. Not a lot of vegetarian options but there are a few. The food was amazing though. We will definitely be back.

We had a nice dinner. The only thing that was strange was that my entree came to the table before the appetizer. I was taken by surprise and called my waitress to the table to ask why it came out of order. She asked me if I wanted it taken back to the kitchen. I asked, “So it can sit und some heating lamps?” She was evasive and when she took it back, I could see it sitting under the heat lamps because I had direct view to the kitchen. The wrong appetizer came several minutes later and the suos chef came out to pull it back. The correct appetizer came a few minutes later. Within two minutes my entree came out, well before we finished the appetizer. The greens on my plate had gotten hot and lost the effect of being in the dish. I didn’t complain again at the time as I didn’t want to ruin the night with my wife. I think the restaurant is very nice. My waitress was less so.

Love the look of the place. The bartender was so nice, made you feel welcome right away. The waitress gave us space to enjoy our meal. We had small plates - both the dumplings and the tuna tartar were excellent! the scallion pancakes were way to greasy. I would recommend this place and would go back.

Our waitress was very welcoming and was patient as our final lunch guest came to join us.
She was able to describe many of the entrées that we were interested in ordering. She was also very apologetic about one entrée that was not available. Overall the food was delicious, we enjoyed our time and didn’t feel rushed in anyway.

Great atmosphere. I was a little disappointed that my husband and I waited probably 10 + minutes for a waitress to come and get our drink orders. We also had reservations and it wasn’t even that busy when we initially sat down. But, overall the food was delicious and pricing was fair! I will totally be back again.

Of the four of us- three had never been to Char'd. They were all pleased and it was as good as I remembered. Sophia was our waitress. She gave good descriptions of the food and drink menu. Sophia was attentive without being intrusive. The food was incredible. Each dish was distinctive and had it's own flavors. The portions were big enough for sharing. We had the wings as an appetizer- good presentation and flavor.
