Unfortunately staff poorly trained, appetizer forks were taken off dirty plates and put back on the table. Had to ask for clean forks. Plates were taken away without asking if we were done. Not one of our steaks we’re done the way we asked, all overdone except one that was basically raw! Very dissatisfied. On a positive, the desserts were good, but won’t be going back.

We had a great experience. The staff was super accommodating when we switched tables and then asked to switch back. The food was delicious and the steak was cooked exactly how we like it. We had a blast.

We went for my boyfriends birthday dinner. The quality of the food was amazing, the portion sizes were perfect. Our waiter was great, super personable. Shocked that the clams were huge, the sauce was great to dip bread in after, both steaks and lobster were so delicious. Perfect from start to end. The food didn’t come out too fast or take too long. Perfect pace.

Service staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Food was all very good, tomahawk steak was cooked to perfection and tasted great , all the sides were excellent potatoes gratin, sauteed spinach, drinks were expensive but good pours. Only thing that did not taste great was the Char steak sauce that I will pass on the next time.

Char is a bit pricey, but if you are looking to dine in that range, then it is definitely a good choice. I had the 10-ounce pub burger and it was done very well. I asked for "medium," and it was cooked through, but wasn't a bit dry, and the taste of the beef came through very well.
I have to note, however, that I found the waiter a bit condescending. He chastised me for asking for a "dry red wine," saying that Americans don't know wine because the adjective "dry" has no meaning to people who know wine. (I drink very infrequently, so I don't have a "go to" wine.) He similarly made me feel awkward when I declined to put cheese or bacon on my pub burger. He was pleasant throughout, but when I decide to pay for a meal in Char's price range, I don't want the waiter to make me feel like I don't really belong there.

Not the first time, and Char never disappoints. Ever.
Our server was top of the line, as was all our food. (Imerie perhaps was his name ? Apologies for not remembering. It was a 1045 res under the name Stephen Nilsen)

Fantastic dining experience , all the way around.

The restaurant is lovely, the two hostess were friendly and greeted me right away. The bartender was sweet, I got the Chargartia which was good. I sat at the bar i didn’t appear busy, but it got busy later on. My only issue was my steak was over cooked, I asked for medium rare, it was about medium to medium well. The cut was beautiful, just over cooked. Along with someone else at the bar. I didn’t send it back, due to the increase business of the restaurant. All in all I would go back again, probably just add an emphasis if it’s not cooked probably I would send it back in the future.

Christmas Eve experience was excellent. Server was phenomenal. The only drawback was one of the filet mignon a was not served well done. Just needed another minute or two to finish. When returned was so overcooked was inedible. Just shared the other filet ordered. Overall I highly recommend Char.

The food was very good. We all had a verity of entrees including yellow fin tuna (would not recommend although the wild rice is excellent). Steaks for the gents and crab cakes and tuna for the women.
Appetizers: shrimp, stuffed mushrooms ( I would order again) and escargot (would not get again).
Wine list is nice and so is the drinks menu.
Overall a pleasant night out. Order the steak.

We were so excited to try this restaurant. First, EVERYONE was extremely nice and service was excellent. Noise level was out of this world, we couldn’t even hear each other unless we yelled. 2nd, my daughters steak came out overdone, not a problem they brought her a new one and that one wasn’t to her liking. However, I’m not looking for free food so I took it home and reheated it to eat which it was good. The desserts are insane! Huge and delicious. Their potatoes are to die for. Over all, our experience wasn’t awful or anything… But, it’s just way too expensive for what it was. And the noise. Also, if anyone can explain to me why they start to play dance music around 8? We liked the jazz/holiday music.

Decor is beautiful, sleek, and classy. Our service and all staff were impeccably professional, courteous, and delightful. The bread selection was impressive - white bread, French rolls, marble, rye, etc. Our side dishes of mushrooms and truffle frites were incredibly tasty, the Asiago cheese was fantastic.

After such a phenomenal start, the steaks were quite possibly the biggest letdown that we were not expecting. Porterhouse and surf&turf. Very bland. Slightly tough for medium rare steaks. Not worth the price.

Very nice experience - I am not used to paying that much for a meal so I feel that the value was not quite there. The place was very nice and our table was ready on time (no wait when we arrived at our reservation time). It was crowded so it was pretty loud, we had a hard time communicating with our waiter and each other. The food was very good - no complaints from any of us.

It got a little noisy because restaurant was full. Our 4 hour long evening dinner service for table of 14 was above expectations, I wish I could remember the server’s a name (December 16, 6 pm reservation for 14). Steaks were good, not great for a steakhouse. All other food, sides an appetizers were excellent.

Great Place for Surf and Turf among other things. Good Brussel sprouts and desserts. If I were to say any con. It would be that a little dark ambiance. But if you like that it’s even more perfect. Waiter was pleasant. Price a little high but you get what you pay for.
