Char Steakhouse - Red Bank
For the Area it was a good standard high end steak house wait staff was very friendly and nice
We celebrated our anniversary at Char last night. The service was great and the food was delicious. We will be back!
Great ambiance ..server Eric helped us with any questions. Cowboy Steak was cooked perfectly. My girlfriend was happy with the filet and she loved the French onion soup as well . Excellent service
We were somewhat disappointed in the cut and cooking of our tomahawk steak
I looked for medium rare. Instead it was rare. I had to leave a fair amount. I have had the same meal at Jack’s, Lugers, more steak for the somewhat less cost.
Not a great experience. With our reservation we were shoved in the ONLY table by the crowded bar in the corner. We were also by the door that the staff used to get to the outdoor tables. Management didn’t see anything wrong with this. Overall poor experience cow especially for the amount of money we paid. Even after we said something about our location, they finally moved us but we’re not very apologetic. Literally inhaled our food so we could leave. Would not recommend. There are better steakhouses I in the area who treat you better.
me and my girlfriend are a young teen couple this is our second time coming here first time was good but this time was awful to be honest i got a loaded baked potato with out bacon and the waiter reassured us that it had no bacon because i am a muslim but when i got it half way of biting into it , it had bacon , to add the waiter looked sketchy and we felt used and played because of how young we are , this place is beautiful and the food is good it can be expensive but it’s ok i will not be coming back due to this issue
Really good food and very good service. You have to try the death by potatoes.
We loved everything about our experience. The service and food were amazing. It was our first time eating at Char and we will definitely be back.
Good was wonderful
When I booked the reservation I requested a table by the window upstairs. When we arrived & the hostess went to seat us downstairs, we told her we requested a window upstairs. She was rude in telling us that the upstairs is closed on a Sunday’s for private parties.I wished someone would of contacted us to let us know that. I would have changed our reservation to a different day.
Great space, great food and good service..tables are a little close but other than good times
Incredible food. Filet mignon matches Gordon Ramsey quality. Nice side dishes. Service was phenomenal.
Excellent service, aged steaks seasoned and cooked to perfection, pecan maple bread pudding outstanding.
Our waiter eric was super kind and informative. He always had helpful suggestions with the food and the drinks. Food was high quality when absolutely Delicious!! Can’t wait to go again!
Repeat customer for the BEST dry aged NY Strip!! Friendly waitress and great service!!
Service was excellent. Steak was done extremely perfect and tasted great however the broiled lobster came out almost un edible and overdone. For $60 at a well-established place would’ve expected better.
Heard good things wanted to try ! Was disappointed the lobster tail was very small and mushy . The bernaise sauce takes nothing like it should taste and was awful ! ! My husband said asparagus were bad ! Won’t be back ! Gabrielle’s Steakhouse much better went 3 weeks ago and enjoyed so much better .
My husband and I enjoyed our date night at Char! The cocktails were great and the food was delicious! Our server, Rich, was very attentive and made wonderful suggestions. We will definitely be back!
Perfect Date Night!! Go to Char Steakhouse when you crave the perfect steak and all that goes with it. Excellent customer service… Jason. Nice vibe.
I loved the dimmed lights and the cute atomosphere the food was good and so was the service , me and my girlfriend are a young teen couple but they treated us with the upmost respect and gratitude, I will definitely go again
Our server was in the weeds from the time we sat down. It took about 10 minutes to ask if we wanted water. Another 5 to get the water and ask for actual drinks. Found out the first requests (Heineken and Blue Moon) were out. Took about 10 minutes for second request to show up. Food order was taken. Ten minutes later our server came back saying my order (a burger) was no longer available. Once the food came out it was over cooked and we had had enough. Called it a night and went across the street.
The restaurant , is in a beautiful part of Red bank , we sat outside . The service was attentive , and the calamari was good for the appetizer. The problem with the main entrée was it fish and came out raw . After pointing this out to the waiter , he took it back and returned and it was still raw . This was the Tuna , it was suppose to be cooked well done .
From the service to the food and drinks - all top notch
Food and service was excellent!
We go to Char quite often and I have to say the food was not as good as it usually is. Their was 4 of us and two of the steaks came out raw in the middle. We sent them back and they came out burnt. The Mac and Cheese was not as good as it usually is . We were celebrating my birthday which the waiter knew. I had the brownie and the brownie actually tasted stale. I have to say for it not being super busy the meal definitely was not what I had hoped for.
Totally not worth the money spent. Kept trying to get us to order more food even though we ordered quite a bit.
Shrimp cocktail smelled fishy …girls and the front desk were rude…waiter was strange…the restaurant smelled needs to be cleaned has an odor
Restaurant was trendy and very lively. We had a great server named Liz. We ordered the porterhouse steak (46 oz) with creamed spinach and fries. Food was good but steak could have been a bit hotter upon serving. The food also took nearly an hour to come out so that may have possibly contributed to the mediocre temperature of the steak. Still a nice evening but there are many other steakhouses I would return to before this one.
We had a party of four for my wife’s birthday. First time for she and I.
Both my son and daughter raved about the steaks they had on previous visits.
My wife and I shared the tomahawk steak special with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. My son and daughter had the strip steaks. They said their meal was OK.
The service was great, and the food was good, but as my wife said afterwards, the steaks I make at home are much better than what we were served at Char. Same for the sides.
Best part of the meal: chocolate mousse cake.
All in all it was a good experience-not great, and not as great as some people say or as pricing would command.
The only thing that made it worth the price was not the food, but spending time together.
The ambiance of it all was beautiful and the filet with truffle fries was delicious
We had a very nice dinner. Liz, our waitress, was a pleasure. She was very attentive, friendly, knowledgeable, an experienced server.
Food was great, service was great and everyone was attentive and informative. Good place to dine on a Friday night
It was our Anniversary we had the Best service, best food and really great ambience. We have been to char three times now and will consistently come back. Cookie Jar Sundae for dessert is off the charts
Service was great, not too much but knew when to come by. In general the was good but expensive. For a steak house, the steak was disappointing.
Client has a good meal and a great time.
I feel the food was at best “ok”. The steak was fatty. I do not feel for the price it was a good value and will not be returning.
The service was awful. We sat for 30 minutes without anyone bringing us anything (not even water). A woman came over with bread after 30 minutes and a conversation with a waiter and seemed more bothered by us than helpful.
Server asked for our order and asked if we wanted it to come out all at once or in two courses. We said two courses as we were not in a rush and one was an appetizer while the other was the entree. He said okay but I’ll need this table in an hour because it’s a Saturday night. Made it very clear we were unwanted and ensured we felt rushed.
I understand waiters have tough nights and busier nights than usual but the experience should have been more pleasant considering the cost.
I was expecting top quality having visited the other location in Raritan. Bacon and Delmonico steak were both quite fatty.
