    The food was excellent. So much flavor and perfectly cooked steaks (med-rare, no blood). The service was excellent. We've had such mediocre to poor service in restaurants over the past year that we seldom go to a nice restaurant anymore. But it was my husbands birthday and he loves a good steak. So we tried it. Only thing I would say is don't get the chocolate cake. Tastes like a safeway cake.

    Amazing food quality and creativity. Started with the pickled veggies which are unique and a must order. The grilled watermelon salad is equally unique and a must order. Followed by the chargrilled Salmon which is an outstanding dish. Wonderful restaurant with a great staff. Thanks again for a fantastic experience.

    We loved eating at Charcoal and will definitely be back. It was a very open restaurant, so the volume was a little louder, but it still had a lovely ambiance. The food was incredible. We started with the pork belly (excellent suggestion from our waiter), then had the rack of lamb and the wagu steak, finishing with the gelato and sorbetto (perfect serving to share). Our waiter and all the staff were charismatic and informative. The outdoor space also looked great and we are hoping to sit there on our next visit.

    The food and service was exceptional, however the ambience of the restaurant does not meet the scale of the food, price, service. I picture a more intimate setting with features that upscale the experience to match the quality of food and service, such as higher end tables and chairs, tablecloths/table runners, lighting, etc.

    Absolutely amazing time during our date night at Charcoal. From the ambience of the room to the smells coming from the kitchen. That does not even take into account the amazing attention to detail. We were taken care of by Ben who went out of his way to make the evening a pleasurable one. From the appetizer (Grilled Watermelon) to our entrees (Sirloin and Smash Burger) to the Dessert (Coffee Crème Brule), everything was top notch. Will definitely return to try the other amazing items on the menu. Congratulations to everyone involved with the Charcoal design.

    I have been waiting to try this new restaurant ever since it opened. I was so excited to try it out for the first time since it got great reviews. Unfortunately, we were very disappointed. The menu was limited and the atmosphere was stark. I ordered a New York strip, medium, and a side salad (which is not on the menu, BTW. I have never heard a restaurant not having a appetizer salad on the menu). They served me a medium rare (border lining rare) steak that was gristly and tough. The side potatoes were dry with minimal seasoning and the the asparagus was limp and had no flavor. I also decided to "live it up" and order a dessert, chocolate cake. The cake was from a sheet pan (not layered) with amateur decorated frosting. It was dense and was something you would get at a kid's birthday party. We will not go back.

    The salmon was great, cooked perfectly. The waygu steak however was tough and was not able to chew it, nor was the taste good. Very unusual and disappointing. Our Hemmingway cocktail was tasty, but the pour was stingy.
