Char Steakhouse - Putnam Valley
I've dined at Char several times in the past two years and have always enjoyed the food and service!
My work friends and I come here a few times a year because of the convenient location (just off the Taconic Pkwy) and the weeknight dinner specials, which are a real value!
This was my first visit at Char going to brunch with the unlimited mimosas. The crab cake eggs benedict were amazing and the mimosas are a great value. Only bad thing was that we went in thinking that the unlimited mimosas, bloody marys and screwdrivers were $9 because that's what the website says, but it was changed to $15. Still a good price, and we were told as soon as we were seated, but the website should be updated.
Good service. Food ok
You always get your money's worth and food is amazing😊
Great fresh food and beautiful presentation. We first tried Char during Last Fall’s Restaurant Week and this is a repeat visit!
Great food, excellent service from the server Niki. She make you feel very comfortable, knowledgeable and gracious. Great dinner
I was impressed with their specials choices they provided with a choice of beer or wine included. I feel the owners are passionate in what they do, how they make people feel, and provide affordable specials so you can go out with a large group and have a decent meal for a great price and continue to come back.
They appreciated their customers business and as customers we appreciate their loyalty/generosity. Our pockets like you too lol
service was not great good was good some came out under cooked
Very warm and engaging atmosphere, staffers were very pleasant. Food and drinks were excellent. Only con was parking, but overall great experience
Been here several times.... excellent food and our waitress was great ....
Great food and great service, food and drinks were amazing
Food was excellent, service was very slow and inattentive
Great place, delicious steak! Made a reservation and were seated right away.
Too busy. Not enough staff for the amount of patrons. Food was inconsistent tonight. Even had a hair come out on top of our mashed potatoes. They started pouring me a 3rd glass of wine before I could say I didn’t want it in order to try making up for their service and food issues. Told them I didn’t want it and couldn’t drink another glass but it was already poured. Poor customer service tonight. They didn’t do anything else to make it better or right. They didn’t even try to offer to comp the 2nd glass of wine that I had already had. They apologized but nothing was done other than the verbal communication.
We usually always have better experiences than we did tonight. But it was quite disappointing for our Valentine’s Day anniversary dinner.
Food was excellent. Service was spotty at best. Sat in a booth with ripped cushions. Waiter took our order and we never saw him again until it was time to pay the check.
We went on Valentine's day they had the foresight to prepare a prefixed three course menu for sale. It worked, the meal was tasty and hit all areas they specialize in. Service was friendly, quick and attentive.
Great dinner! Food was amazing. We had shrimp cocktail and burrata for appetizer. Then halibut with truffle risotto and surf and turf. Everything was great including service! Definitely recommend Char and will be back!
Treated my family and I wonderfully with exceptional attention and service, especially to my 1 year old daughter. Food was delicious from hot appetizers to entree and sides. Would definitely return!
I've been to Char with friends a few times - each experience was great! The wait staff are professional, yet friendly and very attentive. The weeknight specials are delicious and a fabulous bargain!
New owners but very wisely kept the hard working staff and excellent cook. Appetizers Teriyaki dumplings and fried calamari was excellent. Skirt steak and Zuppa Di Pesce fantastic. Recommend the French martini.
Two comments --Table of 6 -- you should repair the seat in the corner where my party was seated. Also since one side is booth like, other side of the table had chairs, there was no place to put our coats. So, we put them on the floor. Suggestion is to put a coat stand in the corner. A perfect corner for that.
Thank you. I go to Char Steakhouse alot and yes, I would recommend this restaurant to a friend, and I have.
We enjoyed a great meal with friends over the weekend. The food was delicious, and perfectly prepared. The service was also great. We will definitely go back!
Everything was great!
The only problem was the noise level. It was very crowded, and very loud!
Service was excellent, food great, staff friendly and attentive.
Good to see the restaurant busy. The staff was very friendly the moment we walked in. The steaks were cooked to perfection and appetizers were delicious. We really enjoyed it and will definitely be back.
Appetizers are excellent chicken dumpling and Asian Calamari. For a local steakhouse the steaks are very good!
Party of 4 taking advantage of Tuesday special. Service was great, food was excellent including desert. We had Salmon, Skirt Steam, Chicken entre, and Stew. Would recommend Char.
My friends and I love Char Steakhouse. We come here to celebrate each of our birthdays. I have also brought family to Char. Definitely would recommend Char Steakhouse to friends and family.
Great food, friendly staff and good price
As usual, Char was delicious!
Great food great atmosphere. Great service. Will be visiting again!
Great night out. Table by fireplace was awesome.
Best restaurant in the area. Great food and great service
Was very impressed at all the service and the food was delivered all at the same time! Great job on New Year’s Eve
Take the good with the bad with this place. Steaks and food in general is usually on point, but the ambiance is more reflective of a local pub. Do not go looking for a peaceful meal, you’ll be severely disappointed! This night in particular was at a different level of rowdy. Plus the men’s room toilets backed up leaving the entire bathroom floor grossly wet for hours. May be a while before we head back, if ever!
Excellent as always. Service and food were great! Definitely would recommend them to anyone who wants a reasonably priced outstanding night out.
Went on Christmas eve , very busy but they still did a efficient job with our meal service. Only small item was my drink , I was asked what type vodka I wanted it made with , I stated Ketal , what my drink came with was anything but , very weak . But wasn't worth mentioning due to activity at time . Food and service were good, wine is a bit pricey , by glass and bottle which I had both , nuff said I may good back on slower evening for second try .
Amazing service! Accommodated our table request with no problem! Food was top notch! It was my first time there! Will be back!
This restaurant is consistently good. We hit it on a night for large groups, so it was very busy. Service was still good, but the noise level was above the usual....
