    It was really nice, from the server who was very attentive to the wonderful food! I especially love the new plant-based menu. I had the chickpea patty entree, it was delicious, and it was smothered in a teriyaki type sauce which was amazing. Can't wait to try some of the other new dishes on the plant-based menu! It was my friend's birthday and the server brought over a lovely little dessert with a candle which was such a nice touch! Our water was topped up frequently. The only downside if there was one was that we were next to a very loud group of five men which made conversation a bit challenging.

    Exceptional Anniversary Dinner Experience! Celebrated our anniversary at Charcoal Steakhouse, and it exceeded all expectations! From the moment we walked in, the ambiance was warm and inviting. The service was impeccable, with attentive staff ensuring every detail was perfect. Now, let's talk about the food - WOW! Each dish was a masterpiece, from the perfectly cooked steaks to the delectable sides. The flavors were exquisite, and the presentation was top-notch. The chef truly knows how to elevate each ingredient to perfection. Overall, our experience at Charcoal Steakhouse was unforgettable. It's not just a meal; it's an experience worth savoring. Highly recommended for any special occasion or simply when you want to treat yourself to an extraordinary dining experience. We'll definitely be returning!

    Exceptional as always. We were seated near the bar with a livelier crowd than we are used to at Charcoal. Food was fantastic as was the service. Always a pleasure .

    I am really enjoying brunch at Charcoal on Sundays! I'm not sure when they began offering it, but am pleased to have it as an option within the region. This was our second brunch at Charcoal and although there was one or two small concerns, they were addressed professionally and courteously. Being in the industry, these things happen and the reaction to these situations are equally important. We left feeling heard, and found the response very fitting of the comments presented. Will definitely be going back.

    I always loved Charcoal Steakhouse and the food, service and the ambience are always exceptional. Just that during this visit we found the service to be a little off, though the food and ambience was outstanding as always, and I am very confident that it is not a general issue but was an issue with a specific person. We would love a little more smile and warmth.
