Really love this restaurant. I can’t imagine you could go wrong with anything on the menu, but will highly suggest the 🥟 dumplings! They are amazing.

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.

Dining at Char'd was a great experience. We ordered the Char'd dumplings and shishito cauliflower and both were delicious. The spicy squid and pork main was also excellent. Service was great and covid protocols were followed.

Daughters 21st birthday. The fried dumplings were yummy. Spicy soup excellent, and color changing lemonade fun. Thanks for accommodating our special request for entrees without soy. The pork belly was perfectly cooked. I would go back for the dumplings!

Keep in mind this isn't standard korean bbq but 1 step up on the fancy scale. If you only have one entree I would sat try to Braised Pork. The kimchi fried rice was also amazing.

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.
