    Our waiter was extremely professional and caring. We eat here several times a year and are have never been disappointed. The food is outstanding! It is a dimly lit environment with jazz music in the background. Gas lanterns line the walls and there is usually a candle at each table. An absolute vibe if you will.

    Usually Char is one of my favorites and I always give 5 stars…but this Saturday night they were apparently short-staffed and VERY crowded. I order the filet which has never disappointed, but tonight it did. Instead of medium rare, it was medium. I ate it anyway because the service was so slow that I didn’t want to wait for another piece of meat when everyone else had their meal. I think our waiter must have been new too because he seemed confused and stressed.

    The food was excellent but services was not. When we arrived for our reservation we were asked if we had checked in, the host was not polite, and said that had to set up our table. So what was the point of the reservation? We had one waitress and at one point she was on one end of the table shouting across to the other end to take orders. Drink service was slow, the margarita I had was terrible. We had to ask several times for refills and water glasses were never refilled. They brought a plate with steak knives and asked us to pass around for those that had steaks. At one point another waitress stopped across the table from me and was pouting to an empty wine glass, for me to hand her across another person. Orders were taken slow and the waitress never really checked on us but once after our meals. We used to live here and it was our favorite restaurant so we were excited to dine here again on a visit, but the service was not up to the 20% tip they assessed for a large party. Maybe since her tip was guaranteed the waitress just did not care. Overall food was extremely good but service was on par with a fast food restaurant, not a highly rated expensive fine dining place like Char.

    Service was on point. I had an outstanding experience at Ava's server! From the moment we arrived, Ava greeted us with a warm smile and attentive service. She was eager to assist us throughout our meal, ensuring that every detail was perfect. If any mistakes were made, Ava promptly corrected them with grace and professionalism, making our experience incredibly enjoyable. Her dedication to providing excellent service truly made our visit memorable. Everyone knows the food is great ! We'll definitely be returning thanks to Ava's exceptional hospitality!

    Food was good but the service was very poor. On a table of 5 was added a tip of over $50. We set a lot without drinks for most of the dinner. Food we order didn’t come out. It was just a poor night.

    Last night was great! But this morning was even better!! So, my date thought she left her phone at Char last night and we went down to look for it this morning. Tripp and the staff bent over backwards to help us every way they could and we ultimately were able to locate the phone. Char’s staff is first class! And the food and the atmosphere speak for themselves. Excellent

    We loved our latest visit to Char! The food was so delicious. I wish I could remember our servers name, but she was so very sweet, accommodating, and knowledgeable. Loved her! My only complaint was we were next to a group of about 10 people (a reunion of some kind I think) and they were extremely loud. I totally get having fun with friends but in my opinion it was excessive to the point there were times my husband and I couldn't hear each other. As I said, I know they were having a great time together, it was just too loud.

    We had a good evening celebrating a special occasion. Our server was awesome but the overall service was less than we have come to appreciate at Char. We had to wait almost 45 minutes for our desert. Our wine took much longer than it should have and the overall meal was almost 2 hours. We were not in a rush but it was not the experiance we have come to know at Char.

    We have eaten here for a 10 years or more. The food is always fantastic! We have noticed the last 5or 6 times how loud it has become during dinner. Not sure of the reason…but getting way too loud for our taste.
