    Our entrees - filet and salmon - were seasoned and cooked perfectly, as were the sides. The blueberry bread pudding was stellar. The service was top notch and very attentive. Also enjoyed my Braveheart cocktail. The atmosphere was very relaxed and elegant. (Save for the completely worn out and ripped seats in out booth, which really should be replaced.) Overall, it was a fantastic experience and we are looking forward to returning soon.

    Food was fantastic. The steak was delicious, tender, and perfectly cooked. My wife loved the Red fish. A coworker he had a bad experience and told me not to go. I'm glad I ignored the warning. We will be back.

    Quite possible the best steak I’ve ever had- and I’ve had a lot of steak. The fried green tomatoes were also exceptional, cornbread crusted redfish and sea bass also delicious, fantastically curated wine list and cocktails with extra touches (smoked Manhattan for example), but the absolute best part was the service- assiduous without being overbearing. We had the most delightful time.

    As usual Char doesn’t fail us with a good meal. It’s a rare occasion when it’s just my husband & me who are out to eat together. The martini’s were wonderful! The bar tender was super nice to my husband because he had 4 bleu cheese olives in his dirty martini. The crab claw appetizer were like we were at the beach. The wedge salad was large enough for us to split. I had the filet medium rare & it was perfect. It was so tender I could have cut it with my fork. My husband had the bbq shrimp with grits. It was fabulous. My only complaint was we were in a side dining room that was a little chilly & not my favorite area. Until next time.

    This is our first time coming here for brunch but we have been here for dinner in the past. Let’s just start by saying the waitress was very careless and nonchalant, obtuse we ordered appetizers which was we never got instead we got something we didn’t order once we sent it back she hand delivered it and seemingly forced us to have it. We ordered crab cakes not claws and she knew that. Then my filet was butterfly cut which I didn’t ask for I specifically said NOT to, the mignon was very well done who eats well some steaks! The male manager said he would fix it and return … thirty minutes late after our party of 5 was done eating my new filet mignon was brought but no double mash only double fries I asked for double mash. It was all awful and just like dinner lamb made my DW sick we should of known this was not a good place to eat. The staff today was bad the service was bad we will never return!

    The food was amazing the service was also perfect. However, there was a toddler not a newborn a 3-4 year old toddler that cried nearly the entirety of our meal. Along with a verbal altercation between the family of the toddler and another lady. We felt the restaurant should have said something sooner to prevent a customer from having to be the one to say something.

    Food is good. Service is good. But On our last visit, it was very noisy. We sat to the left of the entrance across from the bar. We had to talk over lots of energetic chatter. Then a large table of college kids came in and was seated in our area. Tip: ask for a quiet table/area if conversation is important to you. :)

    Char - HuntsvilleResponded on November 10, 2022Hi Jane, thank you for your recent visit to Char. I'm sorry to learn that your entree fell short on execution! Furthermore, I regret to hear that when this was brought to our attention it wasn't acknowledged properly during your visit; a manager should have become involved and offered to replace or take care of the dish. It's disappointing to learn of our mistake, but your feedback is helpful for us to address internally. We'd love to speak with you further to determine how we can rectify your experience-- would you mind sharing your contact information at your convenience? Thank you in advance for your time!

    Partners burger was excellent, redfish was flavorless ( frozen?), sides of grits and mash were like paste. Poor food overall, except burger. Best thing we ate were pork rinds. Nice service.

    The best restaurant in Huntsville, easily. Everything was perfect. I spent a few decades working in restaurants and had high expectations going in, they surpassed them all. The service was top notch, thanks Sierra. The manager, Michael, was on top of his game ensuring a great experience. The food was perfectly prepared. My wife and I will be back for date night as often as possible.

    Our server, Olivia, was outstanding. She was an exceptionally good server and should be commended. Much more attentive than most. It was a pleasure to have her at our table. In my last review on Yelp, I commented that the food is too salty. This continues to be true. The fries were inedible due to the amount of salt. Salt can be added at the table but it cannot be taken away. The creamed spinach was very salty as well. Without plentiful water we would not have made it through this meal. I would recommend Char to a friend but only with a caveat about the salt.

    Had a lovely dinner where the lighting was enough that I could see my wife, and the noise levels were at a level where I could actually hear her. The food was great and the service was excellent (I mean really excellent, not just post-covid excellent). It's pricey enough that I cannot eat there often but well worth it when I do.
