Way, way, way too crowded and noisy! Do not come on a weekend night if you care to talk to your table companions! It's silly how bad the acoustics are. Wait staff too hurried and rushed. This place needs to calm down and give the fine dining experience they charge for.

We were dining for Fathers Day and didn’t realize it would be a lunch menu eat the time of our reservation but the staff was willing to accommodate my husband with a dinner menu option. I though that was very business like and appreciated how attentive they all were to our food allergies. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Amazing restaurant! The service is perfect, the food is fabulous and the ambiance is lively. Absolutely understand why it is so hard to get reservations, but once you do it is worth the trouble!

We enjoyed our meal and the waitress was very pleasant and efficient. The room was beautiful with all of the lighted lanterns. Stopped at the bar for a drink and was met with a slightly arrogant bartender but we made light of it and enjoyed the time in spite of him. Great place for a special dining experience.

Good food and service is the norm. A little loud and crowded which is to be expected on a Sat. Night. Found the fish entree special well prepared and presented but very overly salted. A little overpriced and rated for good but not great.

Everything about our visit was excellent. Starting with our server Patty. She was efficient and knowledgeable - and most important...fun! The Poke Nachos were incredible as a starter for our party of 4. I had the Halibut Puttanesca and it could have possibly been the best dish I've ever eaten out. Next visit we'll try a burger at the bar. They look amazing.

Charlie’s is just great. My wife’s birthday dinner was perfect she says. Every course was flawless. The Cesar Salad was split for us in the kitchen as we wished to share it. The house made dressing was delicious. My halibut with fresh pea risotto was perfectly prepared. Service was attentive but not intrusive. My wife’s steak and frites was tender delicious well seasoned and at the requested temperature. No missteps. Craft Cocktails hit the right notes. Go.

We had a lovely dinner at Charlie's Sunday night. Our server, Patti, was very professional and attentive. We really loved our regular menu food choices including the Tuna Poke nacho appetizer, arugula salad, steak frittes, lamb chops on a scrumptious bed of farro and the salmon with calasparra rice. I don't remember the name of our wine choice, but it was excellent as well.

Charlie's is absolutely a unique restaurant for this area based on the varied menu and sophisticated, but comfortable atmosphere. This wasn't our first time at Charlie's, but Sunday's experience made it our new favorite dining spot. We will certainly return.

Charlie’s is my favorite restaurant because the food is top notch and the place is gorgeous. They spared no expense when building. We often get the filet mignon truffle oil arugula salad and the Brussel sprouts. Outstanding.

A+ Quality experience. Hostess got us seated earlier than expected. Bar service was quick, attentive and the wine by the glass was better quality than you normally find in restaurants. The Charlie’s Hamburger was one of the best I’ve experienced matched with hand cut fries. We shared an Asian salad that was lightly dressed. Perfect. Don’t leave without trying the donuts! Special shout out to Kayla who made the experience wonderful.

The food is amazing, the sauces and seasoning - brilliant. It's hard to decide what to eat because everything is just so delicious! This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time! I cant wait to our next visit!!!
