    Food was good. Their shishito cauliflower was very good. Limited vegetarian options. Only one dessert on the menu and it was below average. Service was very poor. We waited for check in and their employees kept walking past us but never acknowledged our presence or helped us get seated. We had a reservation. Employees had no smile on their faces. Felt like we were guests in an unwelcome place.

    The food was excellent! When I ordered spicy usually I expect things to be really not that spicy but the spicy squid was the the perfect amount of spicy!

    Service took forever. It was at least 1/2 hour before they even took our order. Then another 1/2 before we got any food. They kept trying to give us food we did not order and forgot one of our appetizers. Didn’t get it till after we were almost done with our main courses. Food was outstanding but questionable whether we would go back due to the service. It seemed like every single wait staff was new and didn’t know what they were doing. If that is the case I can forgive some of the wait time, but they offered no explanation or even an apology for all the problems.

    Food was good. Service via the server was adequate but the bar was horrible. We ordered drinks right away and 30 min later, after we already finished our appetizers, the drinks arrived. The first 2 different types of drinks we requested from the menu they told us they were out of. Even the first 2 beers we tried ordering they told us they were out of. When we finally did get our drinks they were horrible and not what we had ordered. When we broached the server she said “yeah I thought they were the wrong color for what you ordered” but didn’t correct the bar tender or take them back. Then we find out we were charged $54 for the 2 drinks.

    The only concern of mine was the amount of fruit flies/nats in there. We had to ask to be moved due to the amount that was on the wall near us.

    The food was wonderful. However, once we got our entree our waitress did not come back to the table for over an hour. We waited to see our waitress for 20 minutes from the time we finished our food til we could ask for the check.

    Unable to comment accurately about their food as we never got it. My wife and I heard good things and went to Char’d for our first date night in months. Seated immediately with 7:30 reservation. 20 minutes later the hostess came by to give us water and let us know our waiter would be right over. After 40 minutes we started seeing people seated at 8 sit down and have their order taken so we left. Extremely disappointed. Would highly recommend another restaurant that values the time of their customers better.

    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!
