    Great upscale neighborhood place to eat, it's a little loud if you want something cozy and the booths are a little bit cramped, so don't eat too much. Otherwise, phenomenal menu.

    This was not a good experience. I requested a low table for celebrating a few birthdays. We were sat in the bar. The service was not good. Our bread came after our meals came, my friend requested no tomatoes on her salad, it came with tomatoes, she requested another dressing, she never received it. In the past we got a free dessert for a birthday, not this time. We paid for it. This is not the place for a special occasion.

    The calamari was excellent, but the shrimp cocktail was not - the shrimp was overcooked. The ribeyes were well seasoned, but nothing special, my husband said the french fries were just ok & my garlic mashed potatoes had hardly any flavor. We were seated at a table right inside the door & every time the door opened, we felt a cold breeze.

    Server was not attentive. Had to ask several times for refills. Food was ok. Chicken was overdone and dry. Filet lacked flavor. Don’t think I will be back. For the $ spent the food not worth it. Poor overall service and sloppy.

    For the price you wld think the food wld be good. Pizza was soggy the chicken in pasta dish was rubbery and noddles were soaking in sauce. Hardly seen our server and when we did we had to ask for things we had already requested. It’s been awhile since I have been to Charbonos & I remember it being so much better. This visit was really disappointing.

    We went to Charbonos for our Anniversary. We probably wouldn't go back for just a dinner out because it was a little pricey. However, it was a great experience. My husband said it was probably the best meal he had since we went to Emeril's in New Orleans. Our server was excellent as was the food. I would love to go back for lunch with a friend and get a salad because they looked great! The carrot cake we had to take home because we were so full. It was excellent! I would highly recommend Charbonos to anyone looking for a different and great experience.

    We made reservations for a dinner to celebrate a 90th birthday. The restaurant ensured that our request for a table in a quiet section was met. Service was excellent from the time we walked in the door. Everyone was attentive to our needs and especially to the fact that we were celebrating a special birthday. We will definitely be returning. We highly recommend Charbono's.

    The waitress was not familiar with the menu. There were not many non-pork options (beef meatball spaghetti or beef lasagna). The table we were sat at was dirty and had to be cleaned after we were seated. There were 2 flies that disturbed our eating experience. The waitress was nice but slow. I heard great things but our experience was not so good.

    They have made some menu modifications recently that have not been well received. Took a couple of very popular items off the menu. Who does that? They also discontinued half price wine night and half price martini night, which were crowd favorites and brought in a lot of business. I just hope they don’t lose too much business over these apparent poor decisions. As they say, if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. 🙂

    Food was pretty good but it took 40 minutes before we got silverware. Our server was new so we were not holding it against her. Just like most places, I assume they were probably under staffed which caused the kitchen to back up. Chicken club was good calamari app was good the medallions with lobster risotto which was too salty and lacked lobster.
